IES Presents: Gridiron Season (Updated Preseason Guest List).

Posted on

By: James Johnson

We are proud to announce that Gridiron season will now include the preseason. As we’ve now gotten a confirmation for our five guests (all of which are bloggers/reporters/podcasters who cover the Jags’ preseason opponents) to bring you some preseason coverage. Those of you who are also fans of the Dolphins, Jets, Eagles, and Falcons are all welcomed to tune in as well as our guests will have you covered in terms of content. As we all know, the preseason isn’t about the match-ups, but more about the players battling for a roster spot trying to prove themselves. That said, our preseason podcasts won’t be about the actual match-ups for the Jags’ versus their opponents, but more about the players who are trying to make a name for themselves on each respective team. We’ll also talk with our guests about their teams training camp insight, record predictions, and other team news just to name a few topics. So, as promised, here’s our updated guest list. Feel free to check out their web pages and social networks linked in their official sites. And as for our guests, thank you all and we can’t wait to hear from you!

IES Top 100 NFL Players of 2012-13. (39-30)

Posted on Updated on

By: James Johnson

As we all know, today’s NFL has evolved into a very pass-happy league. That said, to be among the best you need a solid aerial attack and a solid pass-rush to counter those with solid aerial attacks. I find it no coincidence that the remainder of the countdown is loaded with quarterbacks, pass catchers (WR’s/TE’s), and pass rushers (DE’s/OLB’s). Why? Because as I said, this league is one built around the pass, so it only makes sense that the best players in the NFL are those who affect the pass frequently. That couldn’t be more evident in this edition of IES Top 100 as we have a trio of tight ends making the countdown alongside a pair of WR’s, and edge rushers just to name a few. Find out just who they are in this week edition of IES Top 100 NFL Players of 2012-13.

It’s been a long time coming, but we’ve finally reached the mid-point of IES Top 100. Now we’ll enter the elite players and things will start to get a little more interesting. This week’s Top 100 has a bit of variety with a pair of quarterbacks, running backs, and safeties who make the cut with a few others in the mix. So who are they? I won’t keep you waiting any longer.

IES Top 100 Players of 2013. (#100-90)

I’m sure by now you’ve all seen at least one episode of the interesting (yet controversial) NFL Network show, NFL Top 100. What started in 2011 has since become a big hit with both those who agree with the show’s rankings and those who disagree, like myself. The NFL Top 100 has also been a controversial hit in the world of sports journalism as many analysts have begun to make their own top 100 lists to compare with NFL Network’s. Count IES in; I’m joining the party with my own list. For the record, as I’ve said, I do not to use the actual show as a guideline because I feel it’s a bit misleading. However, I use a mix of my personal knowledge alongside the opinions of other analysts who study film. Another good source I use is that of Profootballfocus.com as you’ll see in my summaries. Lastly, you’ll notice that I gravitated more towards players who played a majority of the season. Now enough of the babbling, let’s get into IES’s first ever top 100 NFL players list.
