Cut Pac Some Slack

He's been improving some and deserves some credit.

A clear policy is needed

The problem is there's no set policy for dealing with him and other players who get themselves in trouble.

Lifetime Ban Seems Unlikely

The commissioner is disappointed but people around the league don't think he'll impose a permanent suspension.

Stop Holding Back Defense

It's ridiculous, why don't you just leave the defense on the sidelines?

No Defending Too Much Offense

Without question, fewer holding calls provide offenses with a decided competitive advantage.

It's Not Helping Scores

If the NFL was trying to increase scoring with this, it's not really working.

NFL Giving Fans What They Want

The league wants passing and it wants scoring. Defensive players had better just learn to live with it because that's not changing.

Accountability Please

A player absolutely should be allowed to have a difference of opinion on a call and be able to air that grievance in a public forum.

Let the Players Speak

If the goal of the NFL is to create fair competition they owe it to themselves, and their millions of fans to end this draconian policy.

Integrity Means Silence

Referees cannot be ripped by the players in the public eye.

The Officials Can Take It

They're already scrutinized so closely that a little public debate wouldn't bother them.

Don't Get Tricked Out

If you're better than your opponent, don't screw around.

Vogue Patterns

Trick plays have always been in vogue, it's just they don't work all the time so you don't notice them as much.

Memorable, If They Work

That's Why We're Noticing

Peyton's Place Ahead of Eli

With Peyton, virtually no deficit is insurmountable. Just look at the comeback he helped engineer yesterday against Houston.

Peyton now, Eli later

I like what I've seen from Eli this season and in last year's playoffs, but I need to see him define a game without Plaxico Burress AND not facing Seattle's pathetic secondary.

It's Still Peyton

Unless Eli wins another Super Bowl this season

By Mark Maske | October 6, 2008; 10:13 AM ET | Comments (0)

Little (Bro) Giants

Time to go with Eli. He's younger, he's won as many Super Bowls as Peyton and he's led his defending champion Giants out of the gate still undefeated.
