He’s fast, we’ll give him that.

Stevens was a former offensive weapon in the mold of Taysom Hill at Penn State before transferring to Mississippi State to just play quarterback. Now in the NFL, it’s to be determined if Stevens presents an option to be a backup to...

As NFL season rapidly approaches, NFL showing no urgency to deal with COVID-19

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It appears that the NFL was hoping things would blow over, but it gets less likely by the day

It seemed unfathomable that when COVID-19 reached its (first) zenith back in March that we would still be trying to figure out how to deal with it four months later. And yet, as places begin to reopen, we’re beginning to see new cases spike again. Indeed, July 8’s 62,425 new cases (via The New York Times) was the largest single-day spike the U.S. has seen.

Saints fans have good reason to hate the Panthers

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

It’s SB Nation rivalry week and here is why the New Orleans Saints hate the Carolina Panthers.

It’s SB Nation’s rivalry week and we are moving on to the Carolina Panthers. The New Orleans Saints and the Panthers have been characterized by high scoring, and sometimes, heartbreaking games.

Obviously the Atlanta Falcons are the Saints’s biggest rival, but they haven’t been a factor since, you know, 28-3. . . But, since then the Panthers have seemed to...

A deep dive into what makes Cam Jordan one of the league’s best defenders

Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty Images

We see the sack numbers and the tackles for loss, but what makes Cam great are the things he does that don’t show up in the box score

Cameron Jordan was always among the most underrated players in the league towards the earlier stages of his career. Drafted in 2011, he couldn’t crack the NFL Network’s Top 100 list until 2015, at No. 99, despite that even not being his best season in terms of sacks or pressures.

The following year, he didn’t even...

And it’s not close.

It is no secret that the NFC South is loaded at wide receiver. Michael Thomas, Julio Jones, Mike Evans, DJ Moore, Chris Godwin, Emmanuel Sanders, and Calvin Ridley present one of the deepest wide receiver groups in a single division in NFL history.

It’s going to be a long, long season

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers joined some prestigious company in the 2020 offseason. Much like the 2011 Eagles, the 2014 Saints and the 2019 Browns, the Bucs left March as unquestioned offseason winners. And, much like the 8-8 Eagles, the 7-9 Saints and the 6-10 Browns, there’s definitely no disappointment lurking around the corner.

If you had asked Buccaneer fans heading into next season in early March, they’d have told...
