Get ready for the Legion of Boom rule

3

A decade ago, the NFL made illegal contact and defensive holding a point of emphasis based in part on complaints from former Colts G.M. Bill Polian that Patriots defensive backs were manhandling Peyton Manning’s pass-catchers. Now, the NFL is re-emphasizing the point of emphasis. As explained by FOX’s Mike Pereira on Twitter, a former NFL V.P. of officiating, illegal contact and defensive holding will be a point of emphasis in 2014.

2014 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup

+

Tonight is the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup Quarterfinal match between The Carolina Railhawks and FC Dallas. A win tonight would extend their home unbeaten streak and allow them to host a semifinal match at home. FC Dallas was once owned by Lamar Hunt, which makes this tournament special to them. Railhawks coach Colin Clarke is a former employee of FC Dallas and now looks to continue his good run this season in The Cup. This tournament has special meaning to all involved.

11 Minutes of Action

According to a Wall Street Journal study of four recent broadcasts, and similar estimates by researchers, the average amount of time the ball is in play on the field during an NFL game is about 11 minutes.

Chiefs WR's ranked 31 out of 32 teams

10

31. Kansas City Chiefs Todd Pinkston is miscast as a No. 1 receiver. The size and speed profile fits, and he is good at tangling up and drawing pass interference, but Pinkston doesn't get separation against good cornerbacks and does not work the middle of the field effectively. James Thrash is a hardworking slot receiver miscast as an every-down starter. He can turn short slants into big plays but must be schemed open. Tight end Chad Lewis is workmanlike but strictly an underneath receiver. Youngster Freddie Mitchell left college with all of the talent in the world but does not seem interested in putting the pieces together. This receiving corps relies far too much on running back Brian Westbrook, whose talent and effort are undeniable, but who will get injured at the worst possible times if his workload is not monitored. Oops! I wrote a scouting report for the 2003 Eagles by mistake! OK, this is an easy fix. Replace Todd Pinkston with Dwayne Bowe, James Thrash with Donnie Avery, Chad Lewis with Anthony Fasano, Fred Ex with A.J. Jenkins and Brian Westbrook with Jamaal Charles. Everything else is 100 percent accurate. Terrell Owens is calling Andy Reid as we speak, assuming his cell phone plan is paid up.

Andy Reid on what went wrong in Philly: I had stopped calling plays

+

Reid fielded a question about evaluating his shortcomings. It did not take much time for Reid to answer. "About a year ago, I found out what I wasn't good at because (I was) out the door," said Reid, now the Kansas City Chiefs coach. "I went back, and I looked at it, and I drifted away from the thing I love doing most, and that was coaching." Reid said he had a "phenomenal" offensive coordinator in Marty Mornhinweg, whom he entrusted with the offense. Former offensive coordinator Brad Childress used to tell Reid not to let his personality "leave the room," and Reid said that happened during his final years in Philadelphia. "I took (myself) completely out, dealt more with personnel, stopped calling the plays, all those things," Reid said.

In Defense of Andy Reid

3

In truth, the Reid era isn’t given its just due by either of those polarizing labels. Unlike most of the coaches who also had lengthy tenures with one team over the past 15 years, Reid’s run was noticeably marked by brilliant highs and dour lows. Coaches like Bill Belichick, Bill Cowher, and Jon Gruden might have had higher peaks, but none had to traverse lower valleys or struggle with a steady amount of criticism. It would be impossible to talk about Andy Reid’s legacy without mentioning some glaring missteps, but Reid is in many ways a model coach for this upcoming generation of NFL bosses. And, in most cases, the most pointed criticisms he has received are either misdirected or shortsighted.

During his pre-employment physical, the Seahawaks discovered a rare heart issue, forcing them to waive him with a non-football illness. However, according to Curtis Crabtree from KJR Sports Radio in Seattle, the Seahawks will still give Scott his full signing bonus.

No Team Can Beat the Draft

+

While some veteran general managers were able to sustain positive returns above average over six or more years, even theirs were not unqualified success stories. Along with former Green Bay Packers GM Ron Wolf, ex-San Diego Chargers GM A.J. Smith and ex-Indianapolis Colts GM Bill Polian were the three best drafting executives in our data set on a per-pick basis.10 But as Pro-Football-Reference’s Stuart notes, despite Smith and Polian’s track records, both were fired from their posts after a series of poor drafts.

"He thinks he’s already an Aldon Smith-type player," a third scout said. "Classic con man. I don’t trust this kid. He will be just a big pain in the (expletive). He’s one of those ‘let somebody else draft him’ guys" … Added a fourth scout: "There’s no outstanding traits about him other than he gives you some versatility in a bad (defensive-line) draft. He’s a mess. Somebody’s going to draft him because they need a defensive end and overdraft him."

Ross has tallied 23 receptions and 366 yards receiving the most amongst all Arizona State receivers. Yet, one of the biggest ways Rashad Ross has helped contribute to the team has been as the team’s new kick returner. Averaging 25.6 yards per return and having already returned one kick 100 yards for a touchdown, Ross is confident in his abilities and believes he can have continued success at the position in the NFL.

DeSean Jackson

In Philadelphia the potential surprise that wouldn’t really be a shock would come from the decision to part ways with receiver DeSean Jackson. If he were available should the Chiefs take out a mortgage to get him?

A Cowboy fans take on Miles Austin

8

Wow. It's taken me a while to get used to the idea of the Cowboys without Miles Austin. I'm really going to miss him. The glass hamstrings, the alligator arms, the willingness to cash an enormous paycheck for doing almost nothing. It's not going to be the same on Sundays not seeing him standing on the sidelines nursing a chipped nail or ingrown hair while his team gets their butt kicked again. On the sunshine side of the ledger (as Paul Harvey used to say), the Cowboys will save 2.75 million dollars by not paying him not to play. Also, since he's no longer with them, they were able to let the team gynecologist go, as well as saving several thousand dollars a year on Midol and Pamprin. So, fare thee well, Miles. Perhaps the 49ers will sign you. I heard that they signed emotionally fragile malcontent crybaby Jonathan Martin. You two could sit around the locker room reading Tiger Beat magazine braiding each others' hair while the actual men on your team play football on Sundays. Clean out your locker, roll up your Justin Bieber posters, pack 'em in your Hello Kitty backpack and you and your boyfriend have a great life, you complete waste of oxygen.
