Need for Greed

If you think it's a great thing to schlep your team across the pond and suit them up in London, you're barmy, as in daft, as in off your bloody rocker!

Trade Zorn for Phillips?

Here's a radical solution for the problems in Washington, Dallas and Tennessee: don't fire these head coaches, trade them.

Keep Zorn for Now

The best thing Dan Snyder could possibly do would be to let the 2009 season play out with Zorn still the head coach.

Off With His Head!

Sometimes the gods demand a public execution, whether the official comes from a sports team, Fortune 500 corporation or government.

Dump Jim Zorn

If I were Dan Synder, I would have put Zorn out of his misery three days ago.

Why Wait, Dan?

If Dan Snyder has an idea of who he wants to coach the team next year, why not bring that person in now?

It Just Don't Work

Pick Peyton

One game for all the marbles? Give me Peyton Manning.

Bet on Brady

For how successful he has been in his career, this decision is an easy one. I'd take Tom Brady.

By Shawn Zobel | October 19, 2009; 11:41 AM ET | Comments (0)

Not Drew Brees

Drew Brees is a good quarterback, and has been great so far this season, but his qualifications aren't nearly as good as Brady, Ben or Peyton.

Peyton's in First Place

With one game to win, I'd rather have Manning than any other QB in the league.

Brady No More

This whole business of dating starlets, dumping pregnant starlets and marrying supermodels can't help but be a drain on a quarterback's resources.

Manning Still the Man

What has separated Manning from Brees this season is consistency.

By Joe Baker | October 19, 2009; 8:55 AM ET | Comments (0)

Brees at the Top

Drew is without question the best quarterback in the league. If it takes a few more wins for the country to realize that, so be it.

By David Cariello | October 19, 2009; 8:50 AM ET | Comments (1)

What About Big Ben?

The reasons I'd take Ben Roethlisberger is his ability to keep plays alive, his fearless attitude and his comeback capabilities.
