Houston Texans 2014-15 Team Preview

Jadeveon Clowney-watt-texans-2014

The Houston Texans had a horrible season last year, that saw the team go just 2-14. The coaching staff has been overhauled. The Texans had 10 draft selections in the 2014 draft and a host of decent free agent acquisitions that are expected to bring a reversal in fortunes. After winning back-to-back AFC titles in […]

Indianapolis Colts 2014-15 Team Preview

Andrew Luck-colts-2013

Long forgotten is Peyton Manning, as the “suck for Luck” thing worked out pretty well for the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts earned a wild card berth last season but lost to the Baltimore Ravens in the first round. In the third year of the Luck era, the Colts are hoping that further team growth propels […]

Carolina Panthers 2014-15 Team Preview

DeAngelo Williams-panthers-2014

The Carolina Panthers are starting to get thing together after making the postseason in 2013-14. Steve Smith was released, which sent an earthquake through the fanbase since he’s the all-time Panthers leader in all receiving categories. Smith was quickly snapped up by the Ravens and he’ll likely destroy the Panthers with reckless abandon in Week […]

New Orleans Saints 2014-15 Team Preview

Pierre Thomas-saints-2014

The New Orleans Saints stand a strong chance of returning to the Super Bowl this year. The team has had its GM, coach and QB together since 2006 and Loomis is a great talent scout for helping this team sustain its roster greatness. The Saints are a force at home but must improve its road […]

Washington Redskins 2014-15 Team Preview

Robert Griffin III-redskins-2013-2

The Washington Redskins had little go right in its 3-13 campaign last year. After a coaching change, and the hope that the team remains healthy, a .500 season is actually within reach for this team. The team’s inconsistency and Jekkyl/Hyde nature is the recipe for mediocrity, and not having a first round pick denied the […]

Dallas Cowboys 2014-15 Team Preview

Terrance Williams-cowboys-2014

The Dallas Cowboys haven’t made the postseason in the last four years, and changing that will require a big turnaround in one of the worst defensive units in the league. It’s limited the team to three straight .500 seasons and coach Jason Garrett has his last chance at redemption before his contract expires after this […]

New York Giants 2014-15 Team Preview

Rueben Randle-giants-2014

The New York Giants had one of the busiest and most productive offseasons. After winning seven of its final 10 contests, the team erased the worries that followed an 0-6 start to the season. The team missed the playoffs for the fourth year in five seasons, and the offense was a flop last season. Coach […]

Philadelphia Eagles 2014-15 Team Preview

Nick Foles-eagles-2014

Chip Kelly does one thing that a lot of football fans (myself included) find very entertaining: a hurry up offense. While the merits of doing so may be in debate, the excitement it generates helps fill seats and keeps fans enthused (not that such has really been a problem in Philly anyway). Kelly must build […]

Saint Louis Rams 2014-15 Team Preview

Zac Stacy-rams-2014

The Saint Louis Rams had trouble building stability last year, largely due to the fact that it played nine games with the backup QB. The Rams looked to build on last year’s deficiencies through the draft, and while it may take a couple seasons for the rookies to reach full-impact level, the profile of the […]

Arizona Cardinals 2014-15 Team Preview

Carson Palmer-cardinals-2014

The Arizona Cardinals are a legitimate third tough team in the NFC West. The Cards finished 10-6 last season and are contenders in the division, despite Seattle and San Francisco both being Super Bowl contenders in their own right. The Cardinals believe Carson Palmer will improve this season as he gains comfort in Bruce Arians’ […]
