Riggo being Riggo

When John Riggins was outspoken and even embarrassing folks would give him a pass. That legacy is not only intact, it's growing.

Vinny Cerrato Defends Daniel Snyder

Riggo doesn't know

John Riggins was a great Washington Redskin. Now he's an entertainer, a great listener but not an insider.

Riggins has earned the right

The question if Riggins crossed the line is pretty much moot, because he left that checkpoint in his rear view mirror years ago.

Riggo overstepped

Except in the eyes of the most rabid Redskins fans, John Riggins' rant will hurt his legacy.

Riggo is right

I don't have to listen to John Riggins to dislike Daniel Snyder.

Who cares what Riggo thinks?

When was the last time John Riggins said something meaningful or insightful about anything? "Loosen up, Sandy, baby" doesn't count.

Legacy untouchable

He's John Riggins. The Diesel. Big John. Riggo. That will never change. Never.

Playoff Picks

With Pittsburgh and Baltimore in their division, the Bengals' luck is the most likely of the current division leaders to run out.

10,001 simulations and guess who's out

The Cardinals are the current division leader least likely to make the playoffs.

The bad luck Bengals

If franchises are somewhat branded by an identity, then the Bengals' is of a team perennially beset by misfortune and miscalculation.

Don't count on Cards

The only team currently leading their division played in last season's Super Bowl and, coincidentally, is the only team that won't play for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Vikings Beware

Anything is possible in the NFL, just ask the Brett Favre and the 2008 New York Jets.

Bengals Are Most Vulnerable

Playoffs may be more than the Bengals are capable of.

By Doug Farrar | November 4, 2009; 11:21 AM ET | Comments (0)

No one safe but Saints, Colts, Vikes

The two divisional leaders I have the least faith in at this point are in the West -- NFC West's Arizona and AFC West's Denver.

Not buying the Bengals

The Bengals have disappointed so many times that you're just waiting for them to collapse.

By Gene Wang | November 4, 2009; 9:43 AM ET | Comments (9)

Not in the Cards

The one division leader that I don't see making the playoffs is the 4-3 Arizona Cardinals.

Which leader isn't playoff bound?

Vote now on the current division leader that will be out of the picture come playoff time.

Should Al Davis Fire Tom Cable?

Sitting on a 2-6 record with allegations of domestic abuse by his head coach swirling, should Oakland Raiders Owner Al Davis fire Tom Cable?

Raider Rage

There's more than enough smoke here to suspect a blazing inferno may be raging on the Oakland sidelines.

By Leonard Shapiro | November 2, 2009; 3:58 PM ET | Comments (2)

Tricky Call

Tom Cable either has a real problem with anger management or he is one very wronged person.

By Doug Farrar | November 2, 2009; 8:31 AM ET | Comments (0)

Anger Mismanagement

Tom Cable's anger and violence have been a problem in his life and have even impacted his job as the head coach of the Raiders.

Raiders' Call?

If Roger Goodell won't do anything, maybe the Raiders will.

By Dave Goldberg | November 2, 2009; 6:58 AM ET | Comments (1)

No Place for Wimps

Cable admitted to hitting his former wife more than twenty years ago. That makes him a wimp and a jerk.

By Dawn Knight | November 2, 2009; 6:52 AM ET | Comments (2)

Might Be Too Late

While he may be a scumbag for hitting women, it just seems a little difficult for the league to dole out punishment for transgressions dating that far back.
