  • RSP Film Room No.65: QBs Trevone Boykin & Baker Mayfield

    RSP Film Room No.65: QBs Trevone Boykin & Baker Mayfield

    Football Gameplan’s Gene Clemons asked for a double feature to compare and contrast two 6-1, 205-ish QBs in similar offenses: TCU’s Trevone Boykin and OU’s Baker Mayfield. I don’t follow college football narratives. I barely know who is competing for the Heisman. I only know Mark Richt got fired by Georgia and hired by Miami […]

    Returning to the Factory of Sadness

    This post is purely personal and it has nothing to do with real football or how I approach my job in football. Besides, real  football hasn’t been in Cleveland since that greedy scumbag took our team to Baltimore.  It’s about to get ugly–and unsafe for work or for people who want to institute Bible tests for refugees–you’ve […]

    Gut Check No.357: Waring Them Down

    Seeking that closer to shut down your league and take the title? Spencer Ware has the skills–and with increasing likelihood–the opportunity to become your Lynchian-Barbarian finishing move.

  • RSP Boiler Room No.7: NC State QB Jacoby Brissett

    RSP Boiler Room No.7: NC State QB Jacoby Brissett

    Characteristics of Jacoby Brissett’s game that reveal a relaxed performer, even when things go off kilter.  Rhythm. Feel. Poise. Soft skills matter in player evaluation–especially when that player is the functional leader of the offense. Successful quarterback play requires the integration of rote technique, strategic mastery of the opposition, athletic ability, the ability to adjust […]

  • RSP Film Room No.64: Huskies RB Dwayne Washington w/Sigmund Bloom

    RSP Film Room No.64: Huskies RB Dwayne Washington w/Sigmund Bloom

    My buddy Sigmund Bloom brings the couch to the film room and requested I choose an intriguing, off-the-radar prospect for viewing. Dwayne Washington is a former wide receiver. At 6-2, 221 pounds, you can see that with his high-cut frame and running style. You can also see the speed, flexibility, strength, and quick-thinking that flows […]

  • Steps Ahead: Arkansas RB Alex Collins

    Steps Ahead: Arkansas RB Alex Collins

    Waldman chops up the misnomer that RB is mostly intuitive while analyzing a clip of Arkansas’ Alex Collins Most people consider running back a physical and intuitive position. Few consider the conceptual acumen the position requires to achieve a high level of success. They stick to the narrative that vision, footwork, and balance are some […]

  • Gut Check No.356: TE Dynasty Tiers

    Gut Check No.356: TE Dynasty Tiers

    “Matt Waldman to aisle 11 for a TE dynasty check…Waldman, TE dynasty check, aisle 11.”  Although the majority of my leagues are dynasty-IDP formats I don’t do dynasty rankings. Barring an unforeseen event, I don’t have the time for at least another 2-3 years. But it’s by far one of my favorite realms of this […]
