D.C. reunion a possibility

Terrell Owens can campaign all he wants, but it will take a desperate team short on wide receiver talent to agree to sign the 36-year-old malcontent.

Short sighted moves

Bringing in Santonio Holmes and Antonio Cromartie give the Jets a better chance to win now, but by the end of the season, the could be right back where they were without the draft picks to fill the same holes.

Unfamiliar spotlight

The Jets flourished with a roster full of role players and team-oriented individuals in year one under Rex Ryan. He'll face a much greater test with a new trio of players who prefer the spotlight to anonymity.

Cornering the market

The stability and sounds foundation Rex Ryan and the Jets posses has allowed them to take chances will talented, mercurial players.

On paper, two great moves

On paper, the Jets have upgraded their talent for a relatively low price. The question that remains is how will those new pieces - specifically Santonio Holmes and Antonio Cromartie - fit in with their team.

Locker room test

By bringing in an aging veteran tailback and a pair of talented players with a history of off the field troubles, Rex Ryan and the New York Jets are testing the strength of the locker room chemistry that helped them reach the AFC title game last season.

By John Gennaro | April 13, 2010; 12:00 AM ET | Comments (0)

The operative word is 'if'

With a pair of talented players with off the field joining last year's AFC finalists in New York, the pay off for the Jets comes down to several big 'ifs'.

It rests on Rex

Rex Ryan must find a way for the latest additions to the New York Jets to mesh with his locker room for a team that lucked into the playoffs in 2009 to make a return trip in 2010.

Smart moves for the Jets?

Were the trades that brought Santonio Holmes and Antonio Cromartie to New York smart moves for the Jets?

Tomlinson the Eagle?

With his age and skill set both factoring into his dwindling shelf life, L.T. could be best served to replace the banged up Brian Westbrook in Philly.

A question of where, not if

LaDainian Tomlinson should land somewhere in 2010, the only question is where.

By Shawn Zobel | February 23, 2010; 10:22 AM ET | Comments (0)

Once a bolt, always a bolt

Like Padre great Tony Gwynn, LaDainian Tomlinson should have ended his career with the Chargers. Now he must make sacrifices if he wishes to join a Super Bowl contender.

By John Gennaro | February 23, 2010; 10:03 AM ET | Comments (0)

Time to hang 'em up?

The statistics show LaDainian Tomlinson's best days are behind him.

By Doug Farrar | February 23, 2010; 12:55 AM ET | Comments (1)

It's in LT's hands

This could be LaDainian Tomlinson's best shot at a Super Bowl, but first he must accept a reduced role.

By Matt Loede | February 23, 2010; 12:23 AM ET | Comments (0)

Pats a good fit

The New England Patriots know how to incorporate past-their-prime players, and if L.T. is willing to be a role player, they could be the perfect place for him to end his illustrious career.

By Sean McCann | February 23, 2010; 12:02 AM ET | Comments (2)

Hurting at 30

Like so many running backs before him, LaDainian Tomlinson has succumbed to the punishment of accumulated hits over time.

Is LT done?

Does LaDainian Tomlinson have enough left in the tank to help a team?

Top 4 stressed teams

Chargers, Cowboys, Vikings and Colts among the teams feeling even more pressure during the divisional playoff round.

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.

Leave the Media Out

Exposing internal politics and voicing frustration about your team to the media is counterproductive for team unity.

Commit to Sproles

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

By Matt Loede | September 17, 2009; 06:39 AM ET | Comments (0)

Tomlinson Still the Man

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

By Roman Oben | September 16, 2009; 01:37 PM ET | Comments (0)

Sproles Is the Go-To

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

By Rob Rang | September 16, 2009; 01:16 PM ET | Comments (0)

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

Sproles Charges Ahead

Sproles has proved that he's by far the more explosive back for the Chargers.

Rivers Rising Fast

Tom Brady and Peyton Manning are great but Philip Rivers is the future.

Smooth Rivers Pass Deep

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

Chiefs Poised for Comeback

The Chiefs could benefit from the weakness of the AFC West and a dramatic infusion of talent at the two most important skill positions on offense: Quarterback and running back. That should make them playoff contenders from the get-go.

By Peter Schaffer | May 29, 2009; 10:18 AM ET | Comments (1)

Chiefs Could Do It

New Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley has two huge advantages in his corner: He has a team that has added veteran leaders, and his Chiefs will be playing in what looks like the NFL's worst division. That could set up a playoff run.

Produce and It's Forgiven

These days, it seems fans are much more forgiving of a player embroiled in the steroids mess so long as he performs at a high level.

Brees & L.T.? A Big Easy

If the Chargers release Tomlinson, the Saints should pounce immediately

Momentum Beats Location

I don't think it's as much about home field becoming meaningless as it is momentum becoming far more meaningful.

Big Ben, Collins in Danger

The QBs who are most valuable to their teams are the ones who lead offenses with iffy running games behind questionable offensive lines.

If Donovan can be dynamite Sunday, he could provide the spark to keep the Eagles soaring.

Give LT a Break

Was Sonny better without Cher? Was Laverne better without Shirley? Am I dating myself terribly with these '70s references?

By David Aldridge | January 5, 2009; 07:00 AM ET | Comments (1)

LT Still the Key

If L.T. wants to give it a go -- he's earned his chance. He's the reason they're even in this position.

The LT Show No More

Darren Sproles has joined with Philip Rivers to become the heart of the San Diego offense.

Give Norv a Break

Mention the name Norv Turner around these parts -- and by that I mean the Washington-metropolitan area -- and you're likely to get vitriolic reaction. Turner spent nearly two full seasons coaching the Redskins, and most of it was tumultuous....

It's Norv's Team Now

In taking the Chargers back to the playoffs after some tough obstacles, he's made it his team

Norv Turning Around

Norv Turner isn't that different than Tony Dungy once was -- on thin ice until he wins a Super Bowl.

By Zach Leibowitz | December 30, 2008; 07:29 AM ET | Comments (0)

Good Job, Norv

Bad breaks, not bad coaching, got San Diego in trouble.
