Let’s talk about the NFL’s bottom tier. The teams with four wins or fewer in 15 weeks. The franchises that have been mostly unwatchable in 2018. That descriptor fits five teams this season: the Cardinals, Jets, Jaguars, 49ers, and Raiders. The Raiders, Jets, and Cardinals, for better or worse, are trending toward a top-five pick in the 2019 NFL Draft by design. This season’s prolonged series of defeats was just the next step in rebuilds meant to replenish talent-starved rosters with premium young talent. For the Jaguars and 49ers, this season’s long line of losses have killed off the momentum of promising finishes the year before. But no matter how the season began, it’s ending the same way for these five clubs — with the 2018 season scuttled and offering nothing but a salvage mission. Which foundering ship is the easiest to save? Jacksonville offers a top-six defense that proved it could push Blake Bortles within 15 minutes of a Super Bowl just a … [Read more...] about Which bottom-tier NFL team do you believe in most?

By Paul Newberry The Associated Press Sat., Dec. 15, 2018 You’ve gotta hand it to Washington’s alleged NFL team. There’s the offensive nickname. Not to mention claiming a player off waivers not long after he allegedly beat up a woman — again. And let’s not forget the organization’s unwillingness to pursue a legitimate quarterback — yes, there’s at least one out there — with the playoffs on the line. Oh, and while we’re at it, quietly trying to push through a plan for a new stadium that would undoubtedly serve as another raid on the public coffers. Let’s go ahead and give this bunch a new moniker: the worst franchise in sports.

You've gotta hand it to Washington's alleged NFL team. There's the offensive nickname. Not to mention claiming a player off waivers not long after he allegedly beat up a woman - again. And let's not forget the organization's unwillingness to pursue a legitimate quarterback - yes, there's at least one out there - with the playoffs on the line. Oh, and while we're at it, quietly trying to push through a plan for a new stadium that would undoubtedly serve as another raid on the public coffers. Let's go ahead and give this bunch a new moniker: the worst franchise in sports.Washington's NFL team has some stiff competition, of course. There are horribly run franchises all over the sporting landscape.Even within its own league, it's hard to dismiss the not-long-for-Oakland Raiders, who had the gall to announce they were bolting for a financial windfall in Las Vegas a full three seasons before they actually planned to skip town, smugly counting on the good people of Oaktown being nothing … [Read more...] about Column: Washington’s NFL team does its best to Be Worst
The Ohio native and Browns fan is seen as a star on the rise by Jason La Canfora @JasonLaCanfora moments ago • 2 min read Iowa State coach Matt Campbell is being talked about in numerous NFL front offices as a potential head-coaching candidate, league sources said, with the Browns among them. Campbell is an Oho native who coached previously at Toledo and grew up a Browns fan, and he has earned a strong reputation among NFL scouts and evaluators who have scouted his players over the years.Campbell, who turns 39 this week, is seen as a natural leader who knows how to delegate responsibility, and he is easy to get along with and very organized, according to many NFL personnel who have interacted with him over the years. Browns general manager John Dorsey, looking for someone stable who can relate to his young and emerging team in the aftermath of the Hue Jackson drama, hit a home run by drafting running back Kareem Hunt out of Toledo when Campbell … [Read more...] about Browns likely to reach out to Iowa State’s Matt Campbell, who’s very much on NFL teams’ radar
Dallas and Houston might have something to say about San Antonio landing an NFL franchise by Ryan Wilson @ryanwilsonCBS 2m ago • 1 min read As professional sports go, San Antonio has the NBA's Spurs and minor league teams in ice hockey, baseball, soccer and football. But if the city's mayor has his way, San Antonio will become the permanent home of an NFL club. "I really believe the momentum that San Antonio has experienced over the last few years," Mayor Ron Nirenberg told KSAT-TV in a recent interview, via the San Antonio Current. "Most recently with the announcement of major jobs coming to Brooks City Base as well as the downtown UTSA campus and the rise of Texas A&M, the community college districts as well, you will see an NFL team in San Antonio in the next 10 years." Where would a San Antonio-based NFL team play? Nirenberg wouldn't speculate about a new stadium but he did offer this: "(One) of the great features and one of the great … [Read more...] about Mayor Ron Nirenberg: ‘You will see an NFL team in San Antonio in the next 10 years’
