The End Zone: Is It A Quarterback’s Fault If He Keeps Getting Sacked?

The End Zone: Is It A Quarterback’s Fault If He Keeps Getting Sacked?

The big story of Monday Night Football was, of course, the tale of butt fumble redemption: Mark Sanchez’s first start in almost two years, this time as the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, as they dominated the Carolina Panthers 45-21. The second most talked about story? Just how bad Panthers quarterback Cam Newton looked in this game – as he has most of the season – after being sacked a record nine times. But while win-loss records are hard to argue against, if we’re really looking at Newton’s viability as a starting QB, there’s a bigger factor consider here: the unbearable lightness of the Panthers’ offensive line.

The End Zone: Guys, Stop Mansplaining Football To Me

The End Zone: Guys, Stop Mansplaining Football To Me

If you ask a woman what the worst part of being a female football fan is, they’ll most likely not love that you’ve segregated them into the boat of “female football fan,” but even that’s a close second to having an ostensibly well-intentioned male football fan mansplain the game to you. Just because I mused out loud the merits of starting Carson Palmer over Eli Manning at QB2 in my PPR league doesn’t mean that I need to be walked through the merits of running it down the middle on 4th and 8 (which, as an aside, if you think running it down the middle on 4th and 8th is a viable strategy, you, friend, are in no position to lecture me about football). Some of the worst offenses? Keep reading »

The End Zone: The Best, Worst & Most Laughable Moments From This Week's Games

I know, I know, I’ve been complaining the last two weeks about the NFL getting boring. And it’s true, right around this time of the season, it does get a little hum-drum. We’re too far away to reasonably start calling playoff berths, but too deep into the season to find freshly contrived celebrations as adorable as they once were (looking at you Peyton Manning, but again, congrats on the career TD record). But Week 8? Week 8 was a gift from the NFL gods, full of both surprises and screw-ups. Huge games were lost. Improbable games were won on even more improbable penalties. Memes were mocked on-field, proving the machines have indeed taken over. Here were the best, worst, and by far most laughable moments of Week 8. Keep reading »

The End Zone: Is Percy Harvin’s Third Act Going To Be His Best Yet?

The End Zone: Is Percy Harvin’s Third Act Going To Be His Best Yet?

In what was otherwise an incredibly slow week for the NFL, the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks surprisingly traded wide receiver Percy Harvin to the New York Jets in exchange for a conditional draft pick. Speculation was instantly rampant that the move was tactical, due to Harvin’s alleged inability to get along with his teammates and the Seattle coaching staff. Such rumors plagued Harvin when he transferred from the Minnesota Vikings to the Seahawks, and they’ll likely plague him as he begins to make a name for himself with the Jets – but sources alleging bad behavior are a dime a dozen, so let’s focus on the bigger issue at hand: is Percy Harvin just what the Jets need to fix their ailing season?
