Friday Five – Young Receiver Tandems

I know that after my last Friday Five being about rookie receivers and now this one being about young receiver tandems you’re going to start thinking that all of my Friday Fives are going to be about young receivers, but I promise they won’t be. I got the idea for this one when I was talking to Bryan earlier this week about if it’s better to have two big receivers (Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Johnson, Terrell Owens, Randy Moss, etc), two small receivers (Steve Smith, the other Steve Smith, DeSean Jackson, Santana Moss, etc), or one of each. Then we thought about the receivers that don’t really fit into either category like Reggie Wayne, Hines Ward or Chad Ochocinco. So this got me thinking about what the best receiver tandems of all time are. Then as my mind started wandering off in this direction I found myself wondering what are some of the best receiving tandems of all time that were two young players.  That is how this list came to be.

2010 NFL Mock Draft VII (10/16)

It has been about two-and-a-half weeks since my last mock draft so I thought I’d put another one up here. I will again be determining my draft order based off of Bryan’s awesome new weekly post that shows exactly what the draft order would be if the season were to end today. To see how things have progressed with my 2010 mock drafts take a look back at I, II, III, IV, V and VI. Here is the seventh installment: Continue reading

2009 NFL Power Rankings (Week 5)

I didn’t do my power rankings last week so note that the “LW” column isn’t actually the standings for “Last Week” it’s actually the rankings from my Week 3 Power Rankings. I am now using Michael Wright’s power rankings to factor into the average ranking part of the formulat. I would like to add a few more sources as well but I’m not sure which ones I would use. The formula I made for this will become more and more accurate as the season goes on, because as of right now the win percentages are being greatly influential over the final outcome due to the fact that each game makes up a greater portion of teams win percentage. The more games that are played, the more it will water down that impact and the rankings as a whole will become more accurate.

I promise to start doing these every week if I ever manage to be in town for more than ten days at a time (hint: that’s probably not going to happen any time soon) but we are still putting up Michael Wright’s power rankings each week.

I will again be adding a few points that I feel are noteworthy below the rankings so be sure to check those out. Here are the rankings: Continue reading
