Most may not remember this but it may trump the 2011 baseball season finales … this is what makes sports great.
Which teams have cashed in the most with their first-round picks over the past 10 years? Sharon Katz ranks them from 1-32, as Round 1 of the 2016 NFL draft approaches Thursday night.
ESPN can often have too much yapping with not enough fact, but this is a great article where they took the metrics and explained them in words to the average fan to show how certain teams have performed in first round drafting over the past decade.
When it comes to the NFL, for better or worse, it’s all about the quarterback. Unquestionably the most marquee position in all of professional sports is quarterback in the NFL. These players receive unbelievable amounts of praise and blame for their team’s success, or lack thereof. The position has evolved over the years, as has the NFL. […]
Today I was wondering, what team has had quarterback play worse than the Jets since the AFL-NFL merger?
The only two teams I could say for sure when simply thinking about it, that played the entire time are the Lions and the Bucs.
Other teams in the same range would be the Texans, Redskins (since 1992), Rams prior to 1999, Saints pre Brees, and the best comparison qualitatively, Da Bears.
NOTE: The Browns at least had Bernie Kosar and Sipe (Red Right 88 not withstanding), which elevates them above these other teams.

If this doesn’t pump you up for the National Football League (the NFL Primetime theme) I don’t know what will. The roller coaster of emotion matches the game so well.
