Nover’s View: Most overrated NFL coach and quarterback

On October 5, 2021, in NFL, by Stephen

Judging by how commentators constantly refer to him as a play-calling genius, you would think Kyle Shanahan is a great coach.  Going by how many TV commercials he’s on and how high profile he is you would think Baker Mayfield is a great quarterback.  Truth be told, neither Shanahan nor Mayfield are very good at […]

Nover’s View: NFL Official Ruining Game

On September 27, 2021, in NFL, by Stephen

By Stephen Nover Being well-know and having a certain amount of fame can flattering. It’s not a good thing, though, if you are an NFL official. The best NFL’s officials usually are the ones who you don’t know their names. Jerome Boger doesn’t fit into that anonymous category. He and his merry flag-waving crew of […]

This certainly sounds good for the Over, right? Not this time. Instead I see Reid fooling foes and general perception by […]

Nover’s View: Laments of a Packers fan

On May 4, 2021, in NFL, by Stephen

By Stephen Nover If Brian Gutekunst was just half as good at his job as Aaron Rodgers is at his, the Packers wouldn’t be in the mess they are in now.  It’s not just Gutekunst’s decision to trade up to take Jordan Love. The Packers have had terrible drafts each of the last two years.  […]

Nover’s View: Ravens-Steelers Free Play

On December 2, 2020, in Free Picks, NFL, by Stephen

By Stephen Nover Steelers minus 10 hosting Ravens   The Ravens are dealing with a stacked deck here. But this game sure looks like it is going to be played. That’s too bad for the Ravens because they are missing so many key components that I can’t see them staying within double-digits of the Steelers. This […]
