Look to the front offices

The supposed superiority of the AFC in the 2010 season is based more than anything on the fact that many of the most talented NFC teams have allowed themselves to be run into the ground with terrible decision-making processes.

A destructive force

As good as he has been at times in his career, Randy Moss continues to be the epitome of a locker room cancer -- a tag that may have teams thinking twice about claiming him off waivers.

Dan Snyder and the Washington Redskins could be the perfect landing spot for waived wide receiver Randy Moss.

Jumping to conclusions

It's far too early to accurately asses the quality of play and the quality of teams in the NFL this season. Defensive struggles may not appeal to everyone, but it remains a formula for success.

Timing is everything

One AFC South team is 3-1 because of a prudently timed timeout taken by its coach while another is 2-2 as a result of its coaches timeout blunder.

A (triumphant?) return

Sunday's Redskins-Eagles game is all about Donovan McNabb returning to face the team he led for the last 11 seasons. And if the boo birds are out to greet him, he'll feel right at home.

It only took 3 weeks

Three weeks into the season, football fans - including this one - see a new and improved Michael Vick leading the Philadelphia Eagles. And it seems most prefer that new Vick to the old Donovan McNabb.

Michael Vick may have the hot hand and the better situation at the moment, but give me Donovan McNabb - the proven quarterback who knows what it takes to lead a Super Bowl contender.

When I am faced with life's most difficult questions I turn to respected thought leaders who really put things in perspective.

Win, Earn or Both?

It's important to appreciate that not all owners are obsessed with winning; some are more concerned with making money year over year.

Winning Starts at Home

Team cohesiveness, solid quarterback play and a stingy defense in December and January aren't based on who owners sign in March.

Can't Buy a Championship

In the NFL, it's not the payroll size, but how you use it.

More Money Wins

Money can be spent well and spent poorly, but ultimately more money is always better.

Offseason Champions

Free spending can't be considered a strategy for winning; instead it must be looked at as a supplement in a larger plan.

A Losing Formula

Years of capricious and irresponsible spending are taking their toll, and based on last season's debacle, it doesn't look as if Dallas will extricate itself anytime soon.

Heed the Tailgation!

For the die hard fan - the lifeblood of any pro football organization - it's about community.

Tailgating Hurts Owners Bottom Line, That's the Bottom Line.

Sports owners want us to drive to the stadium, spend a ridiculous amount of money on parking and get out of our cars and right into the building.

For Better or Worse

I don't know if this new system will make it all that better, but it sure won't make it worse, because only a massive layer of three-foot deep flaming Super Glue would make things worse.

By Dan Steinberg | June 24, 2009; 07:33 AM ET | Comments (1)

No Big Deal

Having been a part of many tailgates at many stadiums, I certainly would trade a little longer walk to my seat for being able to get out of the parking lot quicker.

By Gene Wang | June 24, 2009; 07:02 AM ET | Comments (0)


The reality is that tailgating restrictions imposed by the Redskins and other NFL teams are much ado about nothing.

By Peter Schaffer | June 24, 2009; 06:49 AM ET | Comments (0)

Fix the Rules

Instead of becoming more punitive, the league would do better to amend its rules to allow teams to pursue players about to become free agents as soon as the offseason begins.

By Gene Wang | May 26, 2009; 01:43 PM ET | Comments (0)

Crime, Penalties Stupid

I guess the reason why tampering is such a problem is because it starts a slippery slope. If it's ok the day before, then what stops it from being ok a week before, or a month before, or during the third Sunday of October. I don't get it.

By Dan Steinberg | May 26, 2009; 12:23 PM ET | Comments (0)

Tampering Impossible to Stop

Theoretically, the NFL should stop teams from tampering with players under contract with other clubs. In reality, however, without full disclosure of the conversations held, the league is going to have a difficult time proving when tampering actually occurs.

By Rob Rang | May 26, 2009; 11:26 AM ET | Comments (0)

Follow the NBA Role

For once, the NFL actually could learn something from another American professional sports league. And only the NBA has taken appropriately harsh measures to eliminate tampering from free agency.

By Cameron Smith | May 26, 2009; 11:25 AM ET | Comments (0)

Time to Change the Rules

f you have a seven-day window that gives every team an equal shot at the best and most desirable free agents, and a team tries to sneak in a day early, that team should get the same kind of fine/draft loss the Patriots received for the Spygate scandal.

Holmgren Creates Greatness

If the most important position in the NFL is quarterback, the most coveted retired coach should be Mike Holmgren.

With Jerry Jones and Daniel Snyder hot on his trail, Mike Shanahan will get the highest bid.

Players and coaches should be more honest about the high level of stress in the game.

Campbell could well have the futures of as many as 10 men, along with their wives and children, riding on every pass.

Tony Romo better take Dallas deep into the playoffs or risk getting stamped the A-Rod of football.

Avoid Mark Sanchez, Redskins

Another young hotshot quarterback is not the answer, but the Redskins just do stupid stuff.

Mariucci and Mayock Pick Sanchez Over Stafford

If you put Sanchez in the right system, one that emphasized creativity and route diversity and pocket movement, he'll do everything required to be a great player in this league.

Deacon Sacks Up

The toughest, meanest and greatest defensive draft pick remains David "Deacon" Jones.

Why Not, Redskins?

If somehow he can escape this with less than a year, wouldn't you take a look?

Expensive, but Quality Costs

The deal is a risky one. But it also was an aggressive move that could pay off in glory.

This is one of those trades that will take five years to know who got the better end of the deal.

Cutler Not a Good Fit

Based on the personnel he'll have around him in Chicago Cutler would have done better staying put.

By Gene Wang | April 2, 2009; 07:49 PM ET | Comments (2)

Redskins, Like Every Team, Should Consider Cutler

If Zorn is on board with the decision to pursue Cutler then he either feels that Cutler is special, Campbell is not, or both.

Better Catch Cutler

If the Redskins weren't all-in on the Cutler chase before, they need to be that way now.

By Mark Maske | April 2, 2009; 12:56 PM ET | Comments (5)

A Different Path

At this point Cutler is a better quarterback than Jason Campbell, but this isn't about superstar talent.

Snyder Likes Roller Coasters

It seems like a splashy move for Washington to make. But is it prudent? Well, Snyder has an affinity for roller coaster rides.

Several teams will be looking to pick up the Broncos quarterback, chief among them, the Redskins and New York Jets

Avoid the Temptation!

Giving up several top draft picks for a player statistically similar to the one you already have doesn't make a lot of sense.

Big Names, Not Game

There is a reason TO found a job in two days when 30 other wide receivers are available. He's productive. They aren't.

Free For A Reason

As unfortunate as it sounds, the guy out there who might be the most valuable player on the market, after he gets cut of course, is Michael Vick.

Albert Haynesworth May or May Not Be Worth It

But $100 million is a lot in this economy and under the salary cap.

January 26th Winner: cgaginis

Nobody's worth that, but Snyder and Vinny might actually pay. If they do, the headline will read "Redskins sign Haynesworth for $102 Million - Snyder's Ego Satiated."

'Skins Shouldn't

Locking up so much money in one player seems crazy to me, even by Redskins standards.
