Then? Steelers-Raiders. Now? Steelers-Ravens.

These days, with the Brady/Manning rivalry on hiatus, the best go-round can be seen whenever the Steelers play their divisional nemesis, the Baltimore Ravens.

49ers vs. Cowboys

The "betrayal" of former 49er Charles Haley going to Dallas, or former Cowboy Ken Norton, Jr. making the same move to San Francisco only heightened the hated rivalry. It certainly isn't the oldest or, perhaps, even the best. One could make the argument that the Packers-Bears is the best of all time. Hailing from the West Coast, I enjoyed the myriad of rivalries from the Oakland Raiders perspective, including against the Broncos and Chiefs. However, the 49ers-Cowboys rivalry was the one that I believe helped transform the NFL into America's Game.

Reluctantly it seems that the NFL's version of Magic and Bird is Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. Two great players, but the rivalry isn't even close to that on the hardwood.

Joe Willie vs. Johnny U

The epic battles the two players had are etched in the memories of the baby boom generation.

In D.C., Allen vs. Landry

The NFL to a large degree, owe a large debt to Allen for introducing the Redskins-Cowboys rivalry to a national audience and making it must-watch TV every season.

Bad Idea All Around

Season expansion is probably inevitable, but is it actually a good idea? How do I count the ways in which it isn't?

Don't Dilute the Season

The point is, more football is always seems good but I don't think devaluing the regular season anymore make sense.

Expansion Inevitable

Expansion of NFL season is probably inevitable, but is it fair for all teams, especially those in warm climates?

Apple Pie - 18 Games

Expanding the NFL regular season to 18 games is a no brainer for all parties involved.

All-Pro Late Draft

Some of my esteemed colleagues are right in pointing out the selection of Tom Brady as the best offensive draft pick of all time. Here is my All-Pro offensive team cast over the past 20 years drafted in the 6th round or later:

Until Brady wins a few more titles, Bart Starr has him beat for all-time best offensive draft pick.

Brady the Best

He's won three Super Bowls, two Super Bowl MVP's, as well as a league MVP award.

Brady Beats Bunch

When you take a comp pick awarded at the Owner's Meetings and spin it into this generation's Joe Montana... found gold or not, that's the best draft pick I've ever seen.
