NFL RUSH

Chicago Bears wide receiver Eddie Royal returns the punt for a 65-yard TD.
Poll: Which of Oren's predictions will come true?

The other guys have Kiper and McShay. We have OREN, ftw!

You asked the questions, and lucky for you, not only does Oren know all, Oren also tells all:

How many quarterbacks do you think will be drafted in the first round, and who will they be? -- Brian, Chicago, IL

Oren: I think three quarterbacks will be drafted in the first round: Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota, and Brett Hundley.

Who do you feel is the best defensive lineman this year, and who do you think will draft him? -- Sam, Chicago, IL

Oren: I think Leonard Williams is the best defensive lineman in the 2015 draft and that he will be drafted by the Tennessee Titans.

I don't play football or know how to play. What is the most important thing I should know? -- Ori, New York City, NY

Oren: I think the most important thing when starting to play football is confidence and practice. Finding some beginner football classes in your area would help.

Who is the most underrated player in the 2015 draft? -- Daniel, Deerfield, IL

Oren: I think Melvin Gordon is the most underrated player in this year's draft.

Assuming the Eagles don't trade up to get Mariota, who do you see them targeting with the 20th pick? -- Brian, Philadelphia, PA

Oren: If the Eagles don't trade up to get Mariota, I think they will pick Dorial Green-Beckham.

Do you think there are any hidden gems in the draft -- players who may be overlooked in the first few rounds who you think could be stars? -- Mindy, Chicago, IL

Oren: Yes. Ameer Abdullah, Devin Funchess and T.J. Yeldon might not be picked early but have the skills to become stars.

In 2014, the Bears had one of the lowest ranked pass and run defenses. I know they are looking for a receiver, but wouldn't it make sense for them to focus on defensive picks in the draft? What do you think? -- David, Chicago, IL

Oren: Yes, I think they should pick Vic Beasley, who is a defensive end. The Bears have good receivers already with Alshon Jeffery, Eddie Royal and Marquise Wilson.

What players do you think will make it to the Hall of Fame out of all the players being drafted? -- Jacob, Deerfield, IL

Oren: I think Devante Parker, Trae Waynes and Jameis Winston have a chance to make it to the Hall of Fame.

Got any questions about the draft? Post them in the comments and Oren just might answer yours.

The NFL season has gotten off to a quick start and a lot of surprising things have been happening. Here are some of the top storylines.


1. Peyton Manning is back to breaking records.
The off season acquisition of Peyton Manning for the Broncos two years ago has paid even higher dividends this season than last. Manning has broken the record for most touchdown passes in the first 4 weeks (16), including a 7 TD performance against the Baltimore Ravens. As a result, the Broncos are 4-0 with wins over the Ravens, Giants, Raiders, and Eagles. The high scoring offense should continue its eye popping ways, but do not expect the Broncos to go undefeated. Manning has usually been benched in the last couple games of the season over the last couple years, and they face the Houston Texans in Week 16 at Houston. Other tough road games include away match ups against the Cowboys, Chiefs, and Patriots.


 2. Intrigue at the Quarterback Position
This season, quarterbacks have been hard to predict, including the question of which will start. Most notably the Buccaneers benched Josh Freeman in favor of rookie Mike Glennon, who lost his first start this week to the Cardinals. Tampa Bay has gone 0-4, and the controversy could cost head coach Greg Schiano his job. Four other quarterbacks have lost their job to injury: Tennessee's Jake Locker, Minnesota's Christian Ponder, Oakland's Terrelle Pryor, and Cleveland's Brandon Weeden. 3 of these quarterbacks should regain their job soon, but Weeden may not with the great play of 3rd string quarterback Brian Hoyer, who beat out Jason Campbell for starting duties and then won close games against the Vikings and Bengals.


3. Undefeated Teams
Prior to the Miami-New Orleans game, 6 teams (including the Dolphins and Saints) have started the season with no defeats. The most surprising team is the 4-0 Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs have already doubled their win total from last year, and are a legitimate playoff threat with a great offense and great defense. The Seahawks and Broncos were more obvious, and New England's relatively easy schedule also made them a probable 4-0 team. The Saints, who played on Monday Night Football, started 0-4 last year without Sean Payton, but had an impressive win over the Falcons, and followed up with wins over the Buccaneers and Cardinals.


4. 0-4 Teams
As well as the teams at the top of the league, there are a few teams on the rock bottom of their divisions that are still searching for wins. The most surprising team is the New York Giants, who won the Super Bowl two years ago but have lost all of their games, including the last 3 by 18 points or more. Both the defense and offense have had horrible performances, and as a result the Giants are believed to be out of playoff contention. The Steelers have also had a disappointing start, losing to 2 teams that they should have beat easily, the Vikings and the Titans. The Buccaneers have transformed from a wild card contender to a total mess, benching quarterback Josh Freeman and losing team morale quickly. The least surprising team is the Jaguars, who are expected to finish last in the NFL in offense, defense, and wins. With the exception of the game against the Raiders, the Jaguars have been blown out in 3 of their 4 games, and have not shown any signs of improving.


5. Quarterbacks Up, Quarterbacks Down
As stated earlier, one of the most intriguing story lines this season has been the unpredictable quarterback play. So far, the worst performances have been by Eli Manning and Robert Griffin III. Manning has had, by far, the worst season for the elite quarterback that he is. Unlike his brother, the younger Eli has thrown for a lot of interceptions and few touchdowns. On another NFC East team, Robert Griffin III has shown that the decision to not practice over rehab and go right into a game was not a great one as he was rusty in the first couple of weeks. Griffin has turned the ball over a lot and his only win was over the Oakland Raiders, who were without their starting quarterback (Terrelle Pryor) and running back (Darren McFadden).


The unpredictable performances were positive for some of the quarterbacks. Ryan Tannehill, Andrew Luck, and Russell Wilson have avoided a sophomore slump and each has won at least 3 games this season. But the best two quarterbacks that have improved are veterans Philip Rivers and Jay Cutler. Rivers, who has underachieved over the last 4 seasons, has thrived under new coach Mike McCoy and new offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt. He has established targets in wide receiver Eddie Royal and rejuvenated tight end Antonio Gates. Another positive performance caused by a coaching change is the performance of Jay Cutler. Cutler has played well in his first games of the season, leading the Bears to a 3-1 record. He is also passing to players besides Brandon Marshall, and the offense is doing well as a result.

Did you see the game last Sunday featuring the San Diego Chargers and the Philadelphia Eagles? Well, if you did you know that all the action was in the third and fourth quarter. If you look up the facts on Pick 'Em you'll see that 63% thought that the Eagles would win, and only 33% of the users on NFLRUSH favored the Chargers winning. The Eagles may have had a chance in the third quarter scoring their 37- yard touchdown. You were probably thinking that they had a chance to turn it

Did you see the game last Sunday featuring the San Diego Chargers and the Philadelphia Eagles? Well, if you did you know that all the action was in the third and fourth quarter. If you look up the facts on Pick 'Em you'll see that 63% thought that the Eagles would win, and only 33% of the users on NFLRUSH favored the Chargers winning.


The Eagles may have had a chance in the third quarter scoring their 37- yard touchdown. You were probably thinking that they had a chance to turn it around. But there is something YELLOW on the field. The Eagles had an illegal formation.

 

In the fourth quarter the Chargers make it to the 30 yard line on a kickoff return, but the ball is loose. An Eagle recovers it, but loses it all over again. The Chargers recover it and stumble to the 65-yard line. And a pair of Chargers, QB Phillip Rivers and TE Eddie Royal were at it all game, picking up yards and getting first downs. Then Royal scored a touchdown and sets a record, the second player to ever score 5 touchdowns in the first two weeks. The Eagles almost score a touchdown, but they didn't and the QB and WR are hurt on the SAME play!

 

It's tied 30-30 with 30 seconds left in the game! And the Chargers kicker, Nick Novak, scores the game winning points! And the games ends with a stunning upset! 30-33, Chargers.

It's a showdown between two AFC West rivals. The Chargers will visit the Raiders tonight on Monday Night Football. Here's what to watch for:   1. Darren McFadden is one of the most dangerous runners in the NFL. We wouldn't be surprised if he is the game-changer. 2. Chargers look a lot different at WR: Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal are the newcomers joining Malcolm Floyd. Will they click in the new offense? 3.

1. Darren McFadden is one of the most dangerous runners in the NFL. We wouldn't be surprised if he is the game-changer.
2. Chargers look a lot different at WR: Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal are the newcomers joining Malcolm Floyd. Will they click in the new offense?
3. QB Philip Rivers vs. QB Carson Palmer: Two guys who used to be in the top tier of QBs, yet both had a forgettable 2011. Will they bounce back to elite form?

Thurday night features two teams that should be in the playoff picture in 2012.  The Packers and the Chargers start their journey to Super Bowl XLVII tonight.    


Packers: After a disappointing exit from last season's playoffs, they will have their first look at the field as they ramp up for another run at the Super Bowl in 2012. Keep an eye out for rookie DE Nick Perry as he uses this preseason to emerge as a key pass-rusher.

 

Chargers: 2011 was not good to the "Bolts" as they missed the playoffs.  The Chargers will be searching for a standout WR during the preseason so look for Malcom Floyd and Vincent Brown to step up along with newcomers, Eddie Royal and Robert Meachem.

 

Don't miss the first game of the preseason for the Packers and the Chargers on Thursday at 8 PM ET on ESPN.

Poll. Will the Chargers win at least 10 games in 2012?

Last Year: 8-8

Predicted 2012 Record:  10-6

 

Fantasy Stars

QB Philip Rivers, RB Ryan Mathews & TE Antonio Gates

Players Added: 
DE Melvin Ingram, WRs Eddie Royal & Robert Meachem, RB Ronnie Brown, OT Jared Gaither

 

Player Lost: 

WR Vincent Jackson, DE Luis Castillo

 

5 Facts:

 

1. Even in an “off year,” QB Philip Rivers still threw for 4,600 yards and 26 TDS in 2011.  We expect a return to his Pro Bowl form.

 

2. RB Ryan Mathews is poised to have a breakout season.

 

3. A focus on defense in the past two drafts should start paying dividends this year.

 

4. The loss of top WR Vincent Jackson will be hard to replace.

 

5. Does Head Coach Norv Turner have what it takes to get this team back into the playoffs?

Poll. Will the Broncos win more or less than 10 games in 2012?

Last Year’s Record: : 8-8


Predicted 2012 Record: 10-6

Players Added: 
QB Peyton Manning, TE Jacob Tamme, CB Tracy Porter, DT Derek Wolfe, QB Brock Osweiler and RB Ronnie Hillman

 
Player Lost: 
QB Tim Tebow, QB Brady Quinn, and WR Eddie Royal

 

Much like last season, the Broncos fortunes this year will depend on the performance of their Quarterback.  Tim Tebow’s journey last year from benchwarmer to playoff hero was nothing short of amazing. His leadership skills and penchant for 4th quarter comebacks combined to elevate him to folk hero status. 

 

As fun as Tebow’s exploits were, he will be replaced this year by future Hall-of-Famer Peyton Manning.  After spending last year recovering from a series of injuries, Peyton arrives in Denver looking to reclaim his status as one of the best QBs in the game.  If healthy, he’s capable of elevating the Broncos into the AFC title conversation. It’s a big “if,” but we’re willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. 

 

The Defense is lead by last year’s Defensive Rookie of the Year, LB Von Miller, who combined with DE Elvis Dumervil, rookie DT Derek Wolfe, and future Hall-of-Famer CB Champ Bailey to form a solid unit. 

 

All things considered, we view the Broncos as a team to watch this year.

It's an AFC Showdown this Monday Night between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Denver Broncos. Last week, the Broncos lost their first game of the season against the Baltimore Ravens while the Steelers had a bye. The week before last, the Steelers handed the Vikings their only loss of the season. 
The Steelers will need to contain the Broncos Kick Returner Eddie Royal in this game. With his speed, Royal is able to score from anywhere on the field and the Steelers Special Teams coverage isn't the best in the league.
Who do you think will win?
Hot Fantasy Pick:
Ben Roethlisberger - QB Steelers
Fantasy
Broncos Get A "Special" Win
