The New York Giants spent most of the summer assuming that their receiving corps would be one of the clear strengths of their team. The group was headlined by Pro Bowler Victor Cruz, while third-year receiver Rueben Randle - a former second-round pick - was to be the No. 2 receiver. With new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo bringing in a scheme that emphasizes three-wide sets, the Giants also adde

Three of the top four candidates on my Heisman list were on a bye last weekend, so it goes without saying that there aren’t many dramatic changes to the board.

The 2014 New York Giants have limped into the Bye week. While the new-look New York offense has sparkled in games against lackluster opponents, it has also been downright awful at times.

With bye weeks and injuries starting to force fantasy leaguers into tough situations, the waiver wire has become a place where owners can make or break their seasons. Here are the best players available as we get set for Week 8 of the 2014 NFL campaign: Carson Palmer (QB - ARI): It looks like that strange nerve issue is behind Palmer, who is now averaging 269.0 yards, 2.0 touchdowns, and 0.3 inter

The San Diego Chargers entered the 2014 NFL season with playoff aspirations, but not many people expected them to have a realistic shot at making it to the Super Bowl over teams like the Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts. Though they just lost a tight game with the Kansas City Chiefs, the 5-2 Chargers have gained the respect of the NFL community and even have some calling them the team to beat

"If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it." - Anais Nin "I write to taste life twice"--Anais Nin I am a wife, mother, educator, advocate who might occasionally--ok, more oft than not-- feel too much, think too much, cuss too much, over analyze, over-react, overly sensitive--but I don't know any other way to be--that's just me. If you find any of my articles witty, enjoyable, provocative, infuriating, aggravating, insightful or educational--then my work here is half way done.
