Play It Safe

Hiding Behind HIPAA

The NFL and individual teams manipulate the injury report policy for their own benefit, then hide behind HIPAA.

American Gamesmanship

Eric Mangini's little games with the weekly injury report reflect a common practice in the NFL, and show that a $125,000 fine is simply the cost of doing business.

Coach's Call

One can understand why the Belichick-acolyte might have overlooked Brett Favre's injury.

Commit to Sproles

As long as Tomlinson is out, the stock on Sproles is only going to go up.

Tomlinson Still the Man

There is no running back controversy between Tomlinson and Darren Sproles.

Sproles Is the Go-To

LT's role as a go-to runner may have left with his acceleration.

LT Needs an O-Line

With LT and 2/5 of San Diego's offensive line nursing injuries, Sproles's speed wins.

LT's So Last Year

San Diego ought to shift some of the focus to Sproles or, better yet, deal LT

Backing Up Controversy

I said a few weeks ago that there will be a quarterback controversy in Philadelphia this season. I just didn't know it would be the backups.

Andy Reid Will Adjust

Unfortunately for Donovan McNabb's fragile psyche, the Eagles will be fine for a couple of weeks without him.

They've Done It Before

The Eagles have a system in place that allows them to win without him for brief stretches of time if need be

No McNabb, No Chance

Philly's Super Bowl aspirations hang on the health of Donovan McNabb.

The Bird (& Rib) Cage

The defense might carry them to the playoffs, but they need McNabb to win when they get there.

Hack the Ribs, Saints

Temporary Survival

In the short term the Eagles can get by without McNabb, but niether VIck nor Kolb is ready to replace him permanently.

Fear Not, Philly

Eagles fans should relax. Even if McNabb is out for an extended period, the team will still be in playoff contention

McNabb Takes a Little Ribbing

With the added protection of a well padded flak jacket, he shouldn't have any drop in performance.

No Ben, No Title

You lose Ben, you might as well kiss any thoughts of a Super Bowl repeat good-bye.
