Wilber Marshall was the first player ever slapped with the franchise tag. He was also the first player ever to be ticked off about it. In a Too Deep Zone special, Mike Tanier looks back on 1993, when an angry linebacker threatened the league's newfound labor peace and Redskins-Oilers trades revolved around secret phone calls and midnight faxes.

Charles Grant braces for the franchise tag, the Bucs talk trade, Michael Vick calls his own shots, Keyshawn Johnson remodels a condo, and the god of wine dislocates his non-bead-tossing elbow. It's Mardi Gras in the NFC South, and everyone's invited except Dan Henning.

Aaron Schatz doesn't like to make specific predictions, so it's no surprise that the stat-filled FO preview doesn't take sides. Mike Tanier isn't quite so indecisive, which means that Rundown is filled with jokes and then, finally, a pick: Colts.

There's nothing fancy about this week's Too Deep Zone: just four teams, four plays (five actually), and lots of diagrams as Mike Tanier uses tape of last week's games to predict what the Bears, Colts, Patriots, and Saints have planned for the conference championships.

Here are Mike Tanier's previews of the two championship games. Once again, we remind you that the AFC Championship is making most people into complete morons, and therefore we have given up on policing the message boards this week. We're sure plenty of people will find plenty to complain about here -- although, to be honest, there really haven't been many bitter Bears and Saints fans around, have there?

Does Rex Grossman have what it takes to win playoff games for the Bears? Maybe not, but he has what it takes to not lose them. Mike Tanier dissects three weeks worth of game tape to learn how coordinator Ron Turner uses simple schemes and short throws to hide his quarterback's weaknesses.
