All-Time NFL Franchise Rankings, 2015 Edition

Sports
My NFL franchise ranking is now in its third year, despite the tardiness this season. So if you've read the 2013 or 2014 editions, you know what to expect here. Also, be sure to check out all my other great sports lists as well! The Criteria The categories and point values are as follows: 25 points for a championship game/Super Bowl win, 15 points for a championship game/Super Bowl loss (starting in 1932). 5 points for a season with a playoff appearance (starting in 1967), and 8 points for a season with a playoff win. 1 point for a winning regular-season record, -1 point for a losing regular-season record. 3 points for any year with a regular-season winning percentage of at least .750, -3 points for a regular-season winning percentage of .250 or less.

Retired NFL Jersey Numbers: AFC South

Football Friday, Sports
Since it’s the off-season I thought I’d start a fun project involving NFL history. So I’m going to go division by division and post galleries of football cards (when available) featuring all NFL players who have had their jersey numbers retired by their teams.

Sports
With the 2012 National Football League season nearly upon us, now is as good a time as any to obsess once again on one of my favorite topics — logos. So I’m going to offer up my choices for the best and worst team football logos for all 32 current NFL franchises. Primary, alternate, and helmet logos listed on Chris Creamer’s outstanding logo website are all under consideration. Today I look at the four squads of the AFC’s South division. Previous entries: AFC East, NFC East, AFC North, NFC North Houston Texans Best Well this is an easy choice, since Houston has only had one logo since joining the league. As modern looks go it's not bad, although I still miss the Oilers. Worst See above. Indianapolis Colts Best Sorry Indy fans, the Colts will always be tied to Baltimore f
