    Stop Making Sense: A Post-Super Bowl Conversation with Eric Stoner (BeauxJaxson)

    Matt Waldman shares a post-Super Bowl LIII conversation he had with RSP fam-contributor Eric Stoner that, as Stoner often does, brings the goods.  The game itself was not entertaining. It was an ode to the fundamentals. While not stimulating, it proved to be refreshing. It was refreshing in the way sobriety is for a bing […]

    RSP Film Room: RBs Donnel Pumphrey & Darren Sproles w/Eric Stoner

    Eric Stoner and I study Darren Sproles, but first, we study a player who Emory Hunt says is used like Sproles in terms of system.  Donnel Pumphrey is the latest of a long string of players earning direct comparisons to Darren Sproles.

    I may not be a Jaguars fan but I am a fan of the Jaguars offense when it comes to fantasy football.

You’re matched up against an extremely aggressive fighter. He’s not a reckless one, either. He has a plan. He’s been taught well. He’s calculated. Most of all, he loves punching. Hard. What are […]
