2014 NFL Season

Is is just me or did the offseason fly by this year? The NFLX is on the way and the HOF game will be here
in no time.
I won't be doing previews this season since it can become a bit redundant given all the coverage this league gets. 

My recommendation would be to go ahead and purchase the Football Outsiders Almanac. It's the perfect mix between advanced stats and practical analysis that gets you up to speed on every team, and it's a much higher quality breakdown than what you'll find on national websites or magazines. 

If you're just in it for casual fun, check out Andy Benoit's stuff on MMQB and Bill Barnwell's upcoming previews on Grantland.

Stay tuned for further updates and preseason picks.

NFL Predictions 2014: Season Review

The 2013/2014 is officially in the books and the Seattle Seahawks take home the big prize. I certainly didn't expect a blowout, but it wasn't all that surprising either.

Harvin provided huge plays, the defense did what it did all year, and the offense took advantage of the mismatches. I doubt that Seattle will be as healthy next post-season, but they have all the pieces to contend for the foreseeable future.

It was great to end the year on a high note going 7-3-1 ATS in the playoffs (20-7-2 over the final 9 weeks). I was on the wrong side of too many close decisions during the regular season, but it was still a 4th straight profitable year overall.

I'd like to give a big thanks to those who donated to the tip jar, or opened an account through one of my affiliate links. I write this blog primarily as a hobby, so I really appreciate it anytime someone gives back.

In the meantime, I'll be continuing over on my NHL blog for the remainder of the season. Advanced stats have finally progressed to the point where it can be applied to hockey, and the results have been incredible so far.

If that sport isn't for you, I'll see you again in the summer when the NFL picks back up in July.

Enjoy the offseason!
