Joel Corry of CBS Sportsline looks at the best and worst cap situations in the NFL going into the 2014 offseason. It's an interesting start to the offseason discussion. The top 10 are linked above, led by Oakland -- Lord knows they jettisoned enough money last offseason so they could be in this position a year later -- Jacksonville, and Cleveland. Also in surprisingly good cap shape: Washington and Green Bay.

Our old friend Bill Barnwell updates a study he did for Football Outsiders Almanac 2011, showing which teams truly have the strongest home-field advantage over the past decade. The answer: the NFC West, the Ravens (surprise!) and not the Saints (surprise again!). However, the gigantic difference between each team's home-field advantage from 2002-2010 and their home-field advantage from 1990-2001 makes you wonder how "real" these differences truly are. Why would the Broncos and Jaguars have advantages that were so much bigger in the 90s than in the 00s?

Seattle moves into the DVOA stratosphere with a dominating win over the Giants. In other news, Kansas City is red hot, and Jacksonville is no longer the worst team in the NFL.

This is such an amazingly good idea that I'm kicking myself for not thinking of it first. Aaron Gordon of Sports on Earth went through a series of games and actually tracked how often announcers used cliches, got plays wrong, or spoke utter nonsense in order to create a ranking of the best and worst announcers. The results are very close to what you would expect. I feel particularly vindicated because I often say that Brian Billick is the best color guy on the two main networks.
