Bounties Backfire

If you need to put a price on someone's head to get motivated then you are in the wrong sport.

Top Picks can Actually Hinder Rebuilding

Better to win all you can, get your draft strategy in order, and let the chips fall where they may.

Empty Tank

You're better off trying to build momentum going forward. It's not like basketball

Tank Away

While it's true that drafting high is no guarantee of success, it is the best shot a team can get at the top college football players.

Draft's a Crap Shoot

There's no use trying to lose games to get a top pick when top picks so often turn out to be expensive mistakes.

Bookmakers Dilemma

Obviously I'd love to have the information way in advance but I doubt the NFL teams are about to accommodate a bunch of bookmakers in Las Vegas.

A Conflict of Information

I remember we got fined once because on a Friday, Steve McNair got the flu.

Between you and me... don't tell anybody!

The Art of Deception

Teams aren't in the business of assisting their opponents with confidential and internal information about their own teams.

By Peter Schaffer | October 22, 2008; 12:27 PM ET | Comments (0)

Full Disclosure? It'll Never Happen

Teams disclose what the NFL requires them to disclose, and very little else.

Not the Same Colts

They may end up being the football version of the series "24."

One Year Interruption

Are they that far away? No. But the plays that have gone their way in the past aren't going their way now.

Don't Count Colts Out Yet

Indianapolis will be a contender down the stretch this season and may be representing the AFC in the Super Bowl.

By Gene Wang | October 21, 2008; 12:16 PM ET | Comments (0)

Colts Will Rally

You don't panic. You just fight. That's all you can do, and the Colts will do it.

By Archie Manning | October 21, 2008; 11:53 AM ET | Comments (5)

The Colts Are Crumbling

It's still possible they could get this turned around, but you don't get that feeling about this team.

It's Over... This Season

But Manning is too good to be down for long.

Colts Losing Stud Status

The Colts may still very well make the playoffs this season. However, the 13 and 14-win seasons are part of the past in the Manning era.

Haslett Not the Difference

People are entitled to their opinion, but firing Scott Linehan had nothing to do with the Rams turnaround.

By Dick Vermeil | October 20, 2008; 1:34 PM ET | Comments (2)

Haslett Has Saved the Short-Term Rams

It was obvious to anyone who has observed the Rams this year that a change had to be made

By Doug Farrar | October 20, 2008; 11:18 AM ET | Comments (0)

Haslett Got Them Believing

He's got them not worrying about history and he's got them moving forward one step at a time.

By Dan Reeves | October 20, 2008; 11:12 AM ET | Comments (2)

Rams No Longer Lambs

Haslett absolutely deserves credit for the Rams sudden resurgence.

By Zach Leibowitz | October 20, 2008; 10:39 AM ET | Comments (0)

Losing Linehan Was Key

Give Jim Haslett some credit, but don't go overboard. This is more about Scott Linehan being gone than who succeeded him.
