Storyline is MVP

Michael Vick might be a contender by the numbers, but when it comes to narrative he's the prohibitive favorite.

A video game brought to life

Michael Vick is showcasing a freakish set of skills that only seemed possible when you designed your own player in Madden. If he keeps this up, he'll be much more than just a remarkable reclamation project.

A whole new Vick

If Michael Vick sustains his level of play and stays healthy, it could create a very interesting NFL MVP discussion at the end of the year.

A knee-jerk reaction

Michael Vick deserves to be mentioned in the NFL MVP conversation, but there are plenty of others also having banner years who have proven their ability to stay healthy and contribute in every game their teams play.

Health is paramount

If Michael Vick can stay healthy through the rest of the season and maintain his level of play to this point, there's no question that he'll be the NFL MVP. But that's a big "if."

By Leonard Shapiro | November 17, 2010; 07:54 AM ET | Comments (0)

For now, it's Vick

Michael Vick is bound to regress in the second half, but to this point, there's no question he's the NFL's most valuable player. And if he can stay healthy, he could very well earn the title by season's end.

By Anthony Stalter | November 17, 2010; 07:45 AM ET | Comments (1)

No rush to judgment

There's a reason the NFL moved its MVP voting to after the season -- to help ensure the most deserving player earns the award. Michael Vick is firmly in the conversation, but the award is still up in the air.

Favre's final chapter

Brad Childress appears to have had it with Brett Favre, meaning "the streak" will end sooner rather than later as the Vikings try to get back on track in the NFC North

Brett Favre should walk away now, for the sake of his rapidly deteriorating legacy and body, and to appease the masses who are sick and tired of his circus.

Brett's not done yet

Healthy or not, Brett Favre continues to give the Vikings their best chance to win and as long as that remains the case, he should stay put as the team's starting quarterback.

By Rob Rang | October 26, 2010; 01:00 AM ET | Comments (1)

Winning trumps the streak

It's in the best interest of both the Vikings and Brett Favre for the QB to take a few weeks off to get healthy and let a streak that means more to him than anyone watching come to an end.

Big Ben's adjustment period

The Steelers are clicking without their starting quarterback, but when Ben Roethlisberger returns, it will take a few games for him to get back in the flow and in NFL game shape.

All is well in the Steel City

With a 3-0 start, a Week 4 matchup with the injury depleted Ravens, a Week 5 bye and the Browns on the slate for Ben Roethlisberger's first game back in Week 6, things are lining up perfectly for the Pittsburgh Steelers to make another Super Bowl run.

We should have known

With a fresh quarterback joining the league's top defense, the Pittsburgh Steelers have the tools to make another Super Bowl run. So why was Peter King the only one who saw this coming?

Same old Mike

Michael Vick has returned to form, but that form includes inconsistency and an inaccurate arm, which won't be enough for him to hold onto the Philly's starting quarterback job this season.

A favorable defensive scheme

Michael Vick looked like a capable starting quarterback in rallying the Eagles for a second-half comeback against the Packers, but from here on out, defenses will be far more prepared to contain his running game.

Slippery slope

By issuing suspensions to players who have not been charged with crimes, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is in danger of becoming Big Brother

By Jason Maloni | April 22, 2010; 11:51 AM ET | Comments (1)

Goodell had to do something

It's hard to find a fitting punishment when the full extent of the offense remains unknown, but NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had to take action against Ben Roethlisberger and the four-to-six game suspension is about the best he could do.

By Dan Parker | April 22, 2010; 09:55 AM ET | Comments (1)

Moral vs. criminal code

Roger Goodell's decision to suspend Ben Roethlisberger for six games protects the integrity of the NFL's moral standards without overstepping his bounds as commissioner.

By Doug Farrar | April 22, 2010; 01:13 AM ET | Comments (1)

Not about the number

It's not the length of the suspension dolled out to Ben Roethlisberger that matters. It's how he uses that time to recoup his image and grow up.

Fortunate son

Ben Roethlisberger should consider himself lucky to walk away with the suspension handed down by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and clean up his act now.

By Robert Littal | April 21, 2010; 11:54 PM ET | Comments (1)

Not the Rooney way

Ben Roethlisberger's alleged transgressions have placed him in a group of former Pittsburgh Steelers who the Rooney family saw fit to unload to maintain the team's values. And like those before him, Roethlisberger is likely on his way out of the Steel City.

Weak Arm, Strong Decisions

Miami's system emphasizes Pennington's strengths: accuracy, decision making and leadership.

He's Mistake-Proof

Pennington's mistake-proof, as any Bill Parcells quarterback needs to be. While Bret Favre was slopping stuff all over the place last week, Chad was crisp and cool, taking the ball down the field.

Doomsday for Dallas

The Dallas Cowboys are done. Mark it down. In a season that began Super Bowl or bust, Dallas is careening toward the latter.
