SICKNESS SKULL HELMET

The FOOTBALL SICKNESS PODCAST, 2013 Regular Season Episode 2

Another fantastic week of gridiron action, and the picture has never been less clear. Some of the old standbys are showing up again, but in certain places up is down, left is right, cats and dogs are living together. How are the Raiders not far and a way the worst team in the NFL? Nobody knows. But they’re not. The Steelers are 0-2. The Patriots can’t complete a pass. The Eagles have no brakes. The Browns…well, some things stay the same. Join FootballSickness.com’s Ryan Burns and Sen Sogah to talk a little football. GET YOUR HELMET ON!

2013 New England Patriots Preview with @RumfordJohnny

We have finally reached July, and you know what that means: training camp is but a few weeks away, and it’s time to start looking into each of the NFL’s 32 teams with more depth and seriousness. To that end, we bring you the return of the team preview podcast series after a 2012 hiatus. We’ll have quality guests and dig deep on every team in the league.  There’s no place better to start than in New England, where the Patriots are facing all sorts of fascinating issues (though the Hoodie may disagree with that characterization).  And there’s no better guest to get us kicked off than our old friend @RumfordJohnny of 2 Mugs Fantasy Football.  John breaks down what the Pats offense will do after a plethora of key subtractions, tells us where to expect defensive improvement, and generally drops Northeast Knowledge all over the place. Another stellar appearance for Rummy- make sure you GET YOUR HELMET ON.

Josh Gordon & Tales Of Feats To Come

The breakout whispers about Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron are abundant. The “disaster” whispers about Brandon Weeden are abundant. Norv and Chud replacing Pat Shurmur has to have some impact here, right?  Our Ryan Burns collaborated with Davis Mattek on this post at RotoViz about the fantasy prospects of the Browns’ offense in 2013. The Sickness is spreading.

GORDON

This guy could have a big year.

SICK LINKS: July 18, 2012

Most of you are familiar with the Sick Links pages reachable via the menu bar above. We’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback on those pages over the years, and decided the obvious extension was a daily link page.  We’re not going to be ultra-formal about it, and if you’re looking for constant updates about who dropped a pass at mini-camp, this is the wrong spot. These will be pieces we’ve actually read and that contributed to our enjoyment and/or understanding of the game in a significant way. We will no doubt miss plenty, but… we have limited time, you have limited time, and these are what stuck out.  Some will be a few days old, some will be timely, and some will be diamonds from some long-forgotten rough. Whatever. It’s the SICKNESS, baby. No need to quarrel over formalities. We’re here for the love of it.  Enjoy.

The immortal Greg Cosell on the evolution of the zone blitz.

Alen Dumonjic breaks down some D’Qwell Jackson tape for Goal Line Stand. (Spoiler alert: D’Qwell Jackson is good.)

Some fantastic Redskins talk with Brent Carothers from BurgundyBlog.com on the Son of Washington Podcast.

Football Outsider’s Thomas Gower reviews Chris Brown’s The Essential Smart Football, which I am ashamed to admit I have not yet obtained. I assure you, I am penitent like Indiana Jones looking for a cup.

The great Matt Waldman offers up some thoughts on the Browns’ selection of Josh Gordon in the supplemental draft.

-

This isn’t really about football, but Dan Wetzel’s piece about Graham Spanier speaks to many of my feelings about the NCAA. An outstanding read.

-

The Fake Football’s Mike Braude on Maximizing Team Value. Food for your pre-fantasy-draft thought.

-

Michael Schottey’s Defensive Power Rankings at Bleacher/Report (Slideshow alert. This seems to offend some of you. They don’t bother me. This is the internet. This isn’t bowling. Do what’cha like, I always say. Actually, I got that from Digital Underground…but that’s not important right now.)

-

Oh, hey, look. Pro Football Focus published a really strong article. I guess it had  been like, 17 seconds since the last one. OH! Another one. This time it’s Austin Lee with another Age of Decline, this time RB‘s.

-

I know, I know. You already saw Greg Cosell’s Top 5 WR piece. But just in case.

-

Field Gulls’ Danny Kelly with another quality read, this one one the Seahawks and the Zone Blocking System (ZBS). Those guys in the Pacific Northwest have the football writing thing locked down.
