I'll never grow tired of these comparisons.
- Uh oh, Roger Goodell is once again preaching about the 18-game regular season, this time claiming that it is “attractive to season ticket holders.” With that statement, the commissioner once again proves that his mindset is too financially driven for him to properly connect with fans.
- The latest on Peyton Manning’s contract situation, which technically sits stagnant until a labor deal is reached but is nonetheless discussed on about a weekly basis.

- Joe Fortenbaugh of the National Football Post has been reading our blog.
- A look at how Donnie Avery might fit in with the Rams in 2011.

- From Blogging The Boys: How much longer will the Cowboys’ nucleus wear the star?
- Has anyone ever made an Anne Frank analogy that didn’t “cause a stir“? Gary Myers and others go in on Tiki.
