What the NFL Wants

Take a look at the NFL's TV ratings. The people who run the sport know what they're doing, so don't argue with them.

High Scores = Big Bucks

The more often teams are in the red zone, the more likely the league is to be in the green.

Enough Shootouts Already

If scores keep going up, why not just tune in for only the fourth quarter?

November 27th Winner: PEOPLE WATCHER

Vick deserved to lose everything, but when someone has served their time, do you go down to their job, where they're trying to make a legitimate living, and picket?

Don't Pick Vick

He's a 30-year-old, ex-con, public relations nightmare... but some team probably will hire him.

He Has to Earn It

Vick has to not only prove that he's fit to play, he has to prove that he's fit to represent his team and the league.

We All Make Mistakes

I do think Michael will play again in the NFL. Yeah, I do.

Contrition Aids PR

There are second chances in life and plenty of chances in the NFL. But a team will sign Vick only if he conducts himself in a way that allows the public to forgive him.

November 26th Winner: RICHFROMPHILLY

Yes, Donovan was miserable, but it was Reid who lost the game for us.

How 'Bout Them Cowboys?

If the Giants stumble, Dallas just might be the team to take advantage.

Sneaky South

From the Bucs to Indy, the NFC and AFC east had better watch their rising southern rivals.

Coy Colts

The less understood the Colts are heading into December, the more careful opponents must be.

Colts Cruising

Don't look now, but the Indianapolis Colts are a force again.

November 25th Winner: BROWNS FAN 1980

I feel the pain of the Bengal's fans, being a fan of a continuosly lackluster team, the Browns.

Awkward to Go Back to McNabb Now

Once Andy Reid made the move to bench his prominent veteran quarterback, right or wrong, there should have been no turning back.

By Mark Maske | November 24, 2008; 3:20 PM ET | Comments (2)

Reid Was Right

Donovan has the worst fundamentals of any quarterback I've ever seen who's at his level.

Looking to Lay Blame? Try Mornhinweg

The real blame lies with the play calling of offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.

Heavy is the Crown

Quarterbacks always get the blame, that's why they get the most money.

The Donovan McNabb era in Philadelphia ended Sunday, when Andy Reid replaced him with Kevin Kolb.

By Zach Leibowitz | November 24, 2008; 9:27 AM ET | Comments (2)

Not the Only One to Blame

It's clear that McNabb needs a change of scenery, but he doesn't deserve all the blame.
