P. Manning Is the Steadiest

When it comes to durability, stability and reliability, Peyton Manning really has no peer.

Golden Brady

The golden child of the present-day NFL, Brady has proved that he can always be counted on to lead his team.

There's a Bunch, but One Brady

Only Matt Millen wouldn't pick Brady number one.

Smooth Rivers Pass Deep

Rivers ranks on top and whips a minivan. That's the franchise quarterback you want.

Brady's Still the Best

All things being equal, if I have Tom Brady, I'm taking the Lombardi Trophy home.

Rate Michael Vick's Debut

Rate the performance of Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback Michael Vick in his debut against Jacksonville Jaguars.

Expect a QB Controversy

In Philadelphia, the jersey is always greener on the guy holding the clipboard.

A Good First Step

The experiment wasn't a failure right off the bat. And right now, that's all we can ask.

Vick Baffles in Eagles Debut

Vick's presence seemed to slow the Eagles' offense more than confuse the Jacksonville Jaguars' defense.

By H. Gore | August 28, 2009; 9:26 AM ET | Comments (3)

Vick on the Right Track

For a player who hasn't played in two years, and for one that is playing with a new team, Vick had a good night.

By Shawn Zobel | August 28, 2009; 9:14 AM ET | Comments (1)

Vick Issue Still in Doubt

The issue's still in doubt, but that's a good thing for Vick -- he didn't screw up. In fact he could be great.

By Emil Steiner | August 28, 2009; 6:40 AM ET | Comments (0)

Vick Takes the Phans

Philadelphia may not have a QB controversy on its sideline, but it has one in the stands.

By Sean McCann | August 28, 2009; 6:37 AM ET | Comments (2)

So Far So Good

Philadelphia Eagles fans are pleased, but we need to see more of Vick to know whether he's really ready for the NFL.

A Modest Proposal

For the man that always wants to hold people accountable, Roger Goodell has seemingly got himself and the NFL into a pickle.

Who Will Blink? U2

Jerry Jones is a lot of things, but he ain't stupid... especially when it comes to money.

God Is Watching, Goodell

He's already mad as hell about DirectTV... you don't like it, you take it up with Him.

Mr. Jones, Pull Up This Wall

The scoreboard exists to provide a better view of the game, not to affect it.

In Dallas Size Matters

If I'm a receiver in Dallas, I'm running sideline routes all day just to stay out from under that thing.

By Michael Kun | August 26, 2009; 7:29 AM ET | Comments (4)

Don't Kick Jones

Asking Jones to pay to fix a part of the stadium that conforms to league rules would be tantamount to asking a consumer to pay for faulty brakes approved by auto inspectors.

By Gene Wang | August 26, 2009; 6:44 AM ET | Comments (4)

Get Over It Goodell

Forcing Jones to shell out more cash because, although the scoreboard meets the league rules it isn't to the commish's liking, wouldn't go over well.

By Joe Baker | August 26, 2009; 6:36 AM ET | Comments (2)

Much Ado About Tweeting

Once again the NFL is trying to stifle players' personalities off the field and on it.

By Matt Loede | August 24, 2009; 3:54 PM ET | Comments (0)

Twitter Thought Police

With the rules for communication already established - vis-à-vis what's punishable and what's not -- having a policy addressing Twitter spanks of overkill.

By Chris Richardson | August 24, 2009; 12:12 PM ET | Comments (0)

NFL Control Freaks

I see no need for the NFL to bother itself with worrying what guys are "tweeting" so long as they aren't doing it in the huddle.

Goodell Better Recognize

A commonsense policy is obviously needed. After all, you don't see other top companies banning their employees from using Twitter.

Don't Fear the Tweeter

Just have players register their accounts and then let the new tool work its magic.

Tweet Nazi Cometh?

Let the players police themselves, and if someone steps out of line, poof! "NO TWEETS FOR YOU!!"

By Nick Houllis | August 24, 2009; 7:53 AM ET | Comments (1)

A Time to Tweet

Rather than just fine players, I would establish a policy saying players who tweet during games will have their accounts deactivated. Other times, it's up to the teams.

By Larry Brown | August 24, 2009; 7:24 AM ET | Comments (0)

Twitter Not the Enemy

Twitter doesn't need any special rules surrounding its use, just keep doling out the fines like anything else.

By Joel Thorman | August 24, 2009; 7:10 AM ET | Comments (0)

Not While Working

Beyond that, Twitter policy should be left up to the individual teams and coaches.

Treat Tweets Like Speech

If tweets carry the same repercussions as a talking to the press, players will think before Twittering something nasty tweet about play-calling.

Not Goodell's Problem

Tweet away fellas; I've got a CBA to negotiate.

Control the Tweets

By monitoring NFL Tweets, the league could provide its players with a service more of us need: a filter between us and our impulses.

By John Morgan | August 24, 2009; 6:31 AM ET | Comments (0)

Information Monitors

The NFL should create new positions called Information Monitors, a collection of league officials monitoring all information from players through social networking media.

Teams Should Regulate

Put teams in charge of approving each post a player wants to put on Twitter.

Have Goodell's Policies Helped Clean Up the NFL?

A swing and a miss for the Ginger Hammer?

By Reader Poll | August 21, 2009; 5:09 PM ET | Comments (0)

Addressing the Problem, Not the Solution

Assuming that Roger Goodell's increased discipline changes the way players act is like saying that the rooster crowing changes the way the sun comes up.

By Doug Farrar | August 21, 2009; 1:15 PM ET | Comments (0)

Hammer Time!

With off field drama and unpredictable legal consequences forcing Goodell's hand, he's playing his cards right.

By Jason Maloni | August 21, 2009; 1:13 PM ET | Comments (2)

Not Strict Enough

Until a standard list of punishments for crimes exists, players won't see the policy as a detriment.

By Les Carpenter | August 21, 2009; 12:39 PM ET | Comments (2)

Give Goodell a Raise

Or take him to see "The Hangover." I'll bet that would get him to smile and forget about the upcoming lockout.

Unretiring Ego

Suffice to say, the man loves the spotlight, and Brad Childress is desperate.

Favre Helps Vikes

Childress is gutless for allowing Brett to dictate when he showed up to play. That said, from a pure football standpoint, Favre makes the Vikings better.

He's a Drama Queen

My first thought will not be about how great of a player he was but that he was a huge drama queen the last year and a half.

Favre's a Selfish Jerk

Not Dead, Just Resting

Alive and Well, Obscure

If any runner has a 100-yard day, week one, fans in his city will declare him the feature back.

Committee Makes Sense

Growing awareness of the effects of running back overuse and the value of those backs over time has contributed to a change in thinking regarding the "feature back" concept.

By Doug Farrar | August 17, 2009; 7:20 PM ET | Comments (0)

Blame the Draft

While the featured back may not be completely dead, it's getting close.

Specialization is the future... and not just at running back

Fantasy football players may shudder at the thought, but rotating backs makes sense for both the team and for the players.

By Rob Rang | August 17, 2009; 11:49 AM ET | Comments (2)

Committee of Diversity

The key to success in today's running game is to have a committee of running backs with different styles.

By Chris Gates | August 17, 2009; 11:18 AM ET | Comments (1)

Double Your Durability

The feature back may not be completely dead but the two back system is more popular because of the beating that running backs take in the NFL.

Blame Mike Shanahan

Not only can Mike Shanahan be blamed for the downfall of the Denver Broncos, fantasy owners should blame him for ruining the feature back.

He's Not a Murderer

I'm Sorry

I will use my suspension to reflect, fulfill my obligations, and make a positive impact on the lives of those who look up to NFL players.

By Donte' Stallworth | August 13, 2009; 2:36 PM ET | Comments (6)

Enough Punishment

He has been punished by the justice system, he has been punished by the NFL and more importantly his conscious will be punishing him for the rest of his life.

By Robert Littal | August 13, 2009; 12:44 PM ET | Comments (5)

Suspension is Enough

There is a chasm of difference between murder and a tragic accident.

Maybe a life would be saved if the NFL started banning players after it has been proven that they ended the life of another human being.

Who Vouches for This Man?

Tony Dungy is a good friend to have but that's not the same thing as an owner, standing in front of a bank of snapping cameras, with his hand out saying "I trust you."

By Jason Maloni | August 11, 2009; 12:56 PM ET | Comments (9)

Dungy or Young Jeezy?

A couple of weeks past being conditionally reinstated isn't the time to "keep it hood."

Vick Owes Dungy and All of Us

it's safe to say that when (not if) an NFL team takes a chance on Vick, he'll owe it entirely to the Dungy name behind him.

By Doug Farrar | August 11, 2009; 11:25 AM ET | Comments (3)

PETA Says No

We hope that Dungy will focus on the future of the NFL by backing our efforts to have the League add "cruelty to animals" to its personal-conduct policy

By Dan Shannon | August 11, 2009; 11:20 AM ET | Comments (23)

Just Crazy Enough To Work

On paper, the pairing of Tony Dungy and Michael Vick seems less likely than Shaq and Ben Stein starring in a mock buddy comedy to pitch cell phones.

Is Dungy Too Loyal?

That Dungy agreed to mentor Vick doesn't say much about how far Vick had progressed, only that Dungy saw him as in need of help.
