    After watching the Bears quarterbacks the last twenty years, I'm fine with Cutler for the next ten.

    I don't care what armchair psychologists have to say about his demeanor, the guy has absorbed a...

    I'll be happy to see that too, as long as the results are the same as this year.

    I think Big Ben is a monster, on and off the field.

    This whole debate is ridiculous. His performances in his first two years in Chicago have proven that he's willing to keep slinging it, even when throwing 4 or 5 picks. He absorbed over 50 sacks and...

    It would be a shame for the Vikings to leave after 50 years in the Norris division. To play the part of devil's advocate, a few points in response to reflexive blaming of the owner:

    1) The...

    Is the value of the franchise included in calculating whether or not an owner is a billionaire? I would think that it is. It's not exactly a liquid asset.

    Obviously Paul Allen has a billion...

    Offensively, it has been tough for the Bears to run it, but they have done just enough in the first two games for play-action to work. It appears that Martz plans to use dump-offs in partial...

    I think the Cowboys will be able to run it eventually. Both their starting tackles were hurt in week 1, and I just think they ran into two very good run defenses in Washington and Chicago. In...

    Poll: I think the Dallas/Houston and Bears/Packers...

    I think the Dallas/Houston and Bears/Packers games could be classics. I think the Jets/Dolphins will be a snoozer. Sneaky good game of the week is Denver/Indy. Orton is under-rated and Moreno can...
  10. Poll: Bears didn't turn the ball over in Dallas against...

    Bears didn't turn the ball over in Dallas against a pretty good 3-4. Cutler did make one bad throw against Detroit, but from the limited sample of games, the spread-the-ball philosophy seems to have...

    I think Reid wants more accuracy going forward than he's going to get from Vick. Also, I don't think the Eagles defense is Super Bowl caliber this year and he wants to use this year to get Kolb...

    Obviously I'm happy the call went the way it did, but initially I thought the Lions got jobbed. Then I watched a video that the Bears posted showing the strict "completing the catch" rule screwing...

    I agree with the overall premise, but I think Gary Fencik of the '80s Bears was memorable. Some might be surprised that he, not Singletary, was the captain of those great Bears' defenses. However,...

    I am not a season-ticket holder in the NFL, and I can understand the angst of those spending full-price on 2 pre-season games, BUT...

    The Vikings aren't done yet. They won the division in 2008 without Favre and with Rice contributing very little. But they really need better than expected secondary play and yet another dominant...

    Could be true, doesn't mean that the talk is inappropriate. This is the time of year to talk about all the teams. Plenty of time for the season to winnow down the talking points.

    The Raiders are...

    Living near Clemson, I saw a lot Spiller the last few years. In my opinion, Spiller will be at his best at 15-20 touches a game. Limiting his touches will allow the team to use him at returner, and...

    Agree that splitting up OSU / Michigan is a terrible idea, however they decide to split the divisions.

    Hopefully it's just a bad game, but one of the knocks on Williams coming out in 2008 was his average arm-length. On Saturday, he seemed to be unable to get a good punch on Wimbley to slow him down. ...

    1) I'm still not sure if the move to the 3-4 was in the Redskins' best interest. I thought their 4-3 has been pretty good. I do like McNabb with Shanahan; keeping him healthy will be the key.

    Berrian is a talented receiver and I was sorry to see him leave the Bears, but he has trouble staying healthy, and his lack of physicality makes him a marginal #1 at best.

    I wonder if the money...

    I disagree. If you structure the deferred compensation correctly, by the time it pays out the player's thinking may have changed. For instance, let's say 20% of a player's salary is deferred...

    There are some good ideas on this site, some of which I've mentioned before, but it all comes down to two words:

    DEFERRED COMPENSATION

    These players are looking at 4-5 years of high incomes on...

    1. An 18-game season would mean a team could potentially play 22 games including the playoffs. That strikes me as just too many for safety reasons.

    As I laid out in the thread "impending lockout" a month or so ago, I believe the resolution should involve:

    1) a rookie salary cap combined with a three/four-year max contract,

    2) the players...
