Grading the Cowboys 2017 NFL Draft

Coming into this year’s NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys found themselves in a precarious position: despite coming winning 13 games the previous season, their defense, namely the secondary, had lost significant contributors throughout. How would the Cowboys brass respond? By putting together a defense-heavy draft. Darreck Kirby and Brennan Scala of Project Shanks break down each of Dallas’s picks, offering insight and issuing grades.

Thick and Thin Podcast Ep. 3: NBA Talk

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time again.  It’s time for another podcast from the Thick and Thin crew on Project Shanks Radio.  This time around Robbie Marbury and Daniel Cifuentes bring the hot topics of the NBA to your ears.  In this episode you will hear what these two men think about Honey Nut Cheerios and whether or not it’s an insult or compliment to taste like them, as well as other cereals.  Robbie and Daniel also talk about the swirling trade-winds of the NBA; who will be traded, who needs to be traded and who they want to see traded.  (SPOILER ALERT!)  There is also some disparaging remarks regarding neck tattoos.  Yeah, neck tattoos.  Well, we don’t want to give it all away.  Listen to the podcast and enjoy the newfound knowledge your brain will now possess after hearing what these two NBA scholars have to tell you.

(P.S. somehow Robin Lopez was used instead of Brook Lopez in this podcast.  We got the Lopez brothers confused.  We would like to apologize to them, their family and their 14 fans. Sorry.)

PSDC Radio: Interview with Gregg Doyel

By Chris Stuckey
Editor-in-Chief

With football season finally upon us, it’s time to take things to the next level here at ProjectShanks.com.  When I first started this site, I saw it as much more than just a blog.  I saw it as a full content experience.  I promised interviews with people whose names you recognize, which is why first interview is with a guy most of us know and love or hate on some level.

Gregg Doyel, National Columnist at CBSSports.com

Doyel was kind enough to share some time with myself and the wonderful audience of ProjectShanks.com.  We were able to touch on quite a few topics including:

  • Opening night of the NFL, the Cowboys upset of the Giants and the enigma that is Tony Romo
  • Replacement officials and their potential role in the upcoming season
  • Tim Tebow and the over-coverage provided by ESPN
  • The landscape of college football
  • Doyel’s obsession with cat videos on YouTube
  • Examining the hotness (or lack thereof) of Maggie Gyllenhaal
  • and much, much more.
