Reads: Frank’s Flops I have a slightly depraved colleague who refers to himself as “Frank.” I’m not sure if “Frank” is his real name, but after meeting him I forgot to ask.

Unless you have a stroke of dumb-luck success and you’re giving me a cut of the winnings, don’t write me about your failure. It’s that time of year,… Read More ›

Bramel RSP Q&A You gotta love reading the work of a writer who understands how to complement simplicity with complexity and present it in an easy to understand manner. I think Jene Bramel does this as well as anyone in the football hemisphere today. Whether its injuries, X’s and O’s, or fantasy football strategy, Bramel… Read More ›
Many of you may remember that I did a series on David Wilson’s game at Virginia Tech and how it translates to the NFL. One of Wilson’s issues was the tendency to bounce runs outside to attempt the big play. I euphemistically call this “the corner store,” because it is fun to visit but few… Read More ›
Joe Goodberry writes for Cincyjungle.com. A regular of the football Twitterverse, Goodberry is one of the diehard draftniks frequenting social networks during the offseason. His RSP Writers Project Team is quarterback-driven on offense and features a 4-3 defense with two well-known 3-4 outside linebackers as bookends in his front.
