Buffalo Draft Review, Day 2

Pick 38: Buffalo trades a 5th rounder to the Raiders to move up two picks, then selects RT Cody Ford. Buffalo has added 7 new offensive linemen this offseason, including 6 unrestricted free agents and now Ford. Ford is likely the new starting right tackle. With him in place, the question is now whether Ty…

Buffalo Draft Review, Day 1

Pick 9: Buffalo gets Ed Oliver. I love it. Oliver should have been the third-best player on the draft board after Quinnen Williams and Nick Bosa. He's got the potential to be an elite 3-technique tackle, which is core to the McDermott defense. I'm very happy with this pick and glad that Oliver slid to…

Game blogging update and Baseball HOFs

I'm going to move future game blogging to my Patreon page. I will occasionally make comments about non-gaming (i.e. sports stuff) here, but the gaming stuff fits more over there. I'll be starting my YouTube channel soon, so keep an eye out for that! As far as the Hall of Fame voting, in all honesty, there…

Hall of Fame Coverage

I deeply apologize to you, dear readers. I have been quite busy with other projects and have failed you. We have two Hall of Fame ballots to discuss for baseball and I haven't talked about either one! Shall we? Yes, I believe we shall! Author's note: They went and elected people to the HOF while this article was…

So long, Barkevious

I am an acknowledged fan of Barkevious Mingo, both in Madden and in real life. However, apart from his ridiculously awesome name, he produced surprisingly little on the field. He is now a New England Patriot for the price of a fifth round pick. The Patriots think he can contribute on special teams and/or act…

Browns trade down

There I was, minding my own business and (successfully) defending my dissertation, when I learned that Cleveland had traded the #2 pick. I had previously hoped that Cleveland would do just that, and I am pleased that they did. The trade was #2 and a 2017 4th rounder to Philadelphia for their first rounder this year…

Rams trade for #1 overall pick

If you hadn't heard, the St. Louis LA Rams have traded a king's ransom for the #1 pick. In brief, the Rams are giving a first, two seconds, and a third in 2016 and a first and a third in 2017 for the #1 pick, a fourth rounder, and a sixth rounder (both 2016). According to…

Schedule analysis time!

So, the Browns released the regular season schedule. I am now going to attempt to predict the result (but not the score, because I'm not insane) of each game. Of course, once the draft is finished, this may change, but I'm basing things on who I think Cleveland is likely to pick and why. Week…
