Although he may have been the first quarterback taken in next spring's draft, Jake Locker has announced that he will return to the University of Washington for his senior season.
While this will hurt him financially in the short term, it's almost guaranteed to be make him a better player long-term. The track record for underclassman quarterbacks is poor, and Locker is particularly raw, completing only 53.4 percent of his passes at Washington (although this year that number went up to 58.4 percent under Steve Sarkisian).

As we discuss in this week's Any Given Sunday, the Cardinals are almost like a lab experiment designed specifically to beat the Minnesota Vikings, and it is very likely that the Vikings will have to face them again in the postseason.

Michael Vick burns his old team. Robert Meachem burns the Redskins. Bruce Gradkowski burns the Steelers. Brandon Jacobs burns the Giants. The FO crew throws gasoline on the fire.

This week's Any Given Sunday looks at the future of the Dolphins, who desperately need a number one wide receiver and help in the middle of the front seven. Hey, you can't run a whole defense with just two really good strong safeties.

The FO crew takes on surprising comebacks in Tennessee and Atlanta, and a not-so-surprising comeback in Houston, and the continued dominance of Darrelle Revis.

First pick was obvious -- actually, first five picks are obvious. I was stunned to see sweet potatoes slip to 11, though, and sweet potato pie fall into the second round. On the other hand, I thought Chinese takeout and chitlins were pretty big reaches.

This week's Any Given Sunday does double-duty, looking at both the Oakland win over Cincinnati and the Kansas City win over Pittsburgh. Did these games represent the culmination of trends that could cost these teams their playoff spots? The answer will please Bengals fans and disappoint Steelers fans.

Last week's Any Given Sunday talked about how bad the Packers' offensive line was. Then they went out and beat the Cowboys. So what about the other half of the team? This week's Any Given Sunday talks about how their defense (top-ranked in DVOA) could drag that awful offensive line into the playoffs anyway.
