  1. CFL Super Bowl Preview

    Season XX of the CFL has been full of excitement and surprises, and it all comes down to tonight. Going into the playoffs the question was: Will we get a new CFL champion. The new question posed is: Which one will it be, PatsFan or D11. Both have lost in the biggest game in the world by just a touchdown in years past. PatsFan lost in CFL Bowl IV (17-24 vs Panthers) and IX (17-21 vs Panthers). D11 lost in CFL Bowl XIII (24-31 vs Raiders). It’s been several seasons since these two have made it...
  2. CFL Draft Profile: HB Ashley Dean

    Penn State senior halfback Ashley Dean is coming off a monster season that not many outside of Happy Valley saw coming. Dean, a 6th year senior for the Nittany Lions, has had a rocky road on his way to becoming the top halfback prospect in the upcoming CFL Draft. Dean arrived in Happy Valley as a rather unheralded 2 star recruit. He had a solid though unspectacular high school career playing behind LA Rams HB Todd Gurley at Tarboro High School in Tarboro, NC. When he first stepped on...

  4. Lions Lose 135 Million Dollar Man

    With all the injuries, we’ve seen over this CFL season, this one is arguably the most impactful as our preseason #1 overall ranked player went down with a shoulder tear. Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford went down during Detroit’s home game against the Cleveland Browns. Fans, teammates, and front office were immediately worried once Stafford wasn’t coming up after a brutal hit. Even worse, he was grasping at his shoulder while writhing in pain after only nine snaps. Understandably, everyone...
  5. A Conversation with DeShone Kizer

    I got a chance to sit down with the Cleveland Browns rookie QB before his upcoming game to get to know him a little more. Not only has Kizer impressed me on field, but he impressed me off the field with his honesty and passion for this team and the game itself. ZJ: Were you a Browns fan growing up? DK: Yes I was a die hard Browns fan growing up, even though Toledo is 2 hours away I still rooted for the team. ZJ: How does it feel to be 7-1 with this Cleveland Browns team? DK: Its honestly a...
  6. Week Six Injuries

    Week Six supplied us with the least amount of injuries so far this season, but it's a big one for one AFC West team. Let's break it down. Chiefs OLB Justin Houston - Shoulder tear (5 weeks) Houston is one of the premier players at OLB and his loss is going to be felt for all five weeks. The Chiefs need Houston back healthy as soon as possible as the Raiders are looking to gain momentum on the division. Disaster Rating: 7/10 Houston is hands down one of the best linebackers in the league,...
  7. Week Five Injuries

    Week Five saw a dramatic dip in injuries from previous weeks. Lets take a look at who hit the injury report for teams. Packers OLB Clay Matthews - Abdominal tear (4 weeks) Clay Matthews is a superb defensive player and with how the team is playing this could be a very slippery slope.

Disaster Rating: 6/10 This team is already struggling and to...
  8. Week Four Injuries

    Week Four showed that no team is safe from multiple injuries as the Steelers lose 3 playmakers. Let's take a look at this weeks injury report. WR Antonio Brown - Shoulder Tear (5 weeks) Not much to say here as everyone knows that AB is one of the top wide receivers in the game today. This is going to be a big obstacle to get through for Big Ben and the Steelers. Disaster Rating: 8/10 Five weeks is a long time to go without your best receiver… we’ll see what happens. RE Stephon Tuitt -...

  10. Week Three Injuries

    It was a huge week in injuries as some of the top defensive players in the league went down. Raiders OLB Khalil Mack - Foot fracture (6 weeks) One of the best linebackers in the game and he goes down with a foot fracture. This injury will definitely hang over the heads of the Raiders defense as the list of injured players starts to pile up. The Raiders will need to stay on top of their game as the Broncos are trying to run away with the AFC West. Disaster Rating: 6/10 Injuries are piling...

  13. Week One Injuries

    There were plenty of Week One injuries in the CFL, so I’m here to break down the most important ones. For each player, I’ve included a disaster rating that’s based out of ten (ten being the worst). Titans HB DeMarco Murray – Broken collarbone (7 weeks) This is a pretty big blow to the Titans offense, but it gives the opportunity to second year man Derrick Henry the chance to blow up this season. The former Crimson Tide halfback is a very skilled runner and should be able to come in and fill...
