This weekly series of columns will focus...

It’s a very quiet time in the NFL, right after the Super Bowl and before free agency. Draft workouts aren’t in full swing yet, so there isn’t even any forty times to argue over! It’s the perfect time for those itching to stir up some football conversation to throw things at the wall, hoping they stick, and that seems to be the case around Buffalo lately. There’s been...
Five running backs made Pro Football Focus’s list of the top 101 NFL players in 2016. LeSean McCoy, who ran for 1,267 yards and 13 touchdowns, was not one of them. He’s not happy about it, according to NFL.com. Even if the people who grade every play for PFF wear pocket protectors and taped-up glasses while never donning shoulder pads, the grades are verified by the Pro Coaches...

To be fair, if this scribe were compiling a list of the NFL’s top 101 players, McCoy would have landed on it at some...
