TweetLike many of you, I have been bashing my head against the wall, doing as much research as I possibly can, and reading up on every possible prospect to somehow, someway figure out who Martin Mayhew will take on the evening of April 28th. There are, no doubt, a gazillion prospects out there and rightfully […]

In Slides: The Top Five Defensive Coordinators of the NFL http://ballhyped.com/2011/04/12/in-slides-the-top-five-defensive-coordinators-of-the-nfl/ Tue, 12 Apr 2011 13:21:11 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/04/12/in-slides-the-top-five-defensive-coordinators-of-the-nfl/

TweetDefensive coordinators to me are the most underrated part of the game when it comes to building a team. I don’t think any other coach—not even the head coach— has a bigger impact on the game in the duration of the games. They are also the guys that build the historical defenses that fans like […]

Ranking The GMs #20: John Schneider/Pete Carroll http://ballhyped.com/2011/04/07/ranking-the-gms-20-john-schneiderpete-carroll/ Thu, 07 Apr 2011 16:58:48 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/04/07/ranking-the-gms-20-john-schneiderpete-carroll/

Tweet lot of the decisions made by the Seattle Seahawks front office aren’t probably made by general manager John Schneider. They are the work of coach/ de facto GM Pete Carroll. I am not sure whether to call Seattle’s run to the playoffs impressive given what they had to work with or a shame that […]

Ranking The GMs #19: Mike Reinfeldt http://ballhyped.com/2011/04/07/ranking-the-gms-19-mike-reinfeldt/ Thu, 07 Apr 2011 16:57:44 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/04/07/ranking-the-gms-19-mike-reinfeldt/

TweetMike Reinfeldt’s draft picks have been pretty damn solid in the last three years with the drafting of Chris Johnson, Kenny Britt and Derrick Morgan. He has been extremely aggressive and took big chances on guys like Johnson and has reaped the benefit of that risk. Still, the Titans are annually one of the quietest […]

Ranking The GMs: #18: Rick Smith http://ballhyped.com/2011/04/07/ranking-the-gms-18-rick-smith/ Thu, 07 Apr 2011 16:56:31 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/04/07/ranking-the-gms-18-rick-smith/

TweetI have to start out by saying that Rick Smith is one of the more underrated general mangers in the NFL. The Houston Texans before Smith were more or less know for draft failures on top of draft failures. Rick Smith has done a nice job of erasing that notion with great picks like DeMeco […]

Tweet If this was a ranking of how quickly a general manager has been able to put together a team, then Jeff Ireland, with much credit given to Bill Parcels, would be one of the top three on the list. The Dolphins have had a couple of lackluster seasons, but their future is in no […]

Tweet So we have finally come to the midpoint of this ranking, and the honor of Mr. Average goes to Jerry Reese of the New York Giants. Had Reese been the general manager of the Giants for a few more years, I may have had to rank him in the top ten for the drafting/trading […]

Detroit Lions Smartly Addressed the Safety Position http://ballhyped.com/2011/02/24/detroit-lions-smartly-addressed-the-safety-position/ Thu, 24 Feb 2011 20:01:07 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/02/24/detroit-lions-smartly-addressed-the-safety-position/

TweetIn the last week or so, a bunch of high profile safeties were released, which included a former Defensive Player of the Year in Bob Sanders, Pro Bowl caliber safety in O.J. Atogwe, and a pretty solid one in Eugene Wilson. Common thought would be to go after players like these as soon as they […]

Look For Lions To Draft Senior Bowl Players http://ballhyped.com/2011/02/23/look-for-lions-to-draft-senior-bowl-players/ Thu, 24 Feb 2011 00:47:19 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/02/23/look-for-lions-to-draft-senior-bowl-players/

TweetI was unable to attend the Senior Bowl this year but from various reports, I've heard the Lions sent out quite a few scouts to the practices. What's more, they even stayed for the game and watched from the press box. Everyone knows the practices are more important, but the Lions staying to watch the […]

From The Vault: Breaking Down the Lions Defense http://ballhyped.com/2011/02/21/from-the-vault-breaking-down-the-lions-defense/ Mon, 21 Feb 2011 20:41:45 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/02/21/from-the-vault-breaking-down-the-lions-defense/

TweetThe Lions head coach, as most of us know, is Jim Schwartz, and their defensive coordinator is Gunther Cunningham. The two of them probably have the biggest contrast in style, experience and demeanor between a head coach and defensive coordinator in the NFL. On one hand, you have 44 year old Jim Schwartz, who is […]

How Tradeable is the 13th pick of the Detroit Lions in the 2011 NFL Draft http://ballhyped.com/2011/02/18/how-tradeable-is-the-13th-pick-of-the-detroit-lions-in-the-2011-nfl-draft/ Fri, 18 Feb 2011 17:51:31 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/02/18/how-tradeable-is-the-13th-pick-of-the-detroit-lions-in-the-2011-nfl-draft/

TweetIn the last couple of days, there has been a lot talk both locally and nationally about who the Lions will take with their first round pick. Draft experts like Todd McShay, Mel Kiper, and Mike Mayock have all given their prediction on who they think the Lions will take with the pick. Still, I […]

Is Nate Solder Worth the 13th Pick http://ballhyped.com/2011/02/18/is-nate-solder-worth-the-13th-pick/ Fri, 18 Feb 2011 13:36:46 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/02/18/is-nate-solder-worth-the-13th-pick/

TweetThere is no question the Lions could use an upgrade at both tackle spots. Jeff Backus is a favorite of the Lions organization, but he'll be 34 years old at the start of the 2011 season (if we have one). On the other side there's former 1st rounder Gosder Cherilus. Cherilus has been solid at […]
