Over at ESPN Insider, I look at which teams are most likely to snag the No. 1 overall pick and a shot at Jadeveon Clowney. Well, we list all our projected last place teams, and of course that includes Atlanta... which finishes 8-8 or better in over half our simulations and isn't going anywhere near the No. 1 overall pick.

With no reason to believe that Geno Smith would be better than Mark Sanchez right now, and no reason to believe that starting Smith right now would help him long-term, why not use Sanchez to give Smith a little space to learn the NFL game and the Marty Mornhinweg offense?

Packers' left tackle Bryan Bulaga tore his ACL during Saturday's Green Bay "Family Night" scrimmage and is probably done for the season. Bulaga's transition from right tackle to left was by no means guaranteed to go smoothly, but he was still the Packers' best tackle. Aaron Rodgers can help cover for that line's problems against mediocre and bad defenses, but it's the kind of issue that I would bet gets magnified when we get to the postseason. At least the Packers now have the whole season to figure out their line and get some cohesion between those players.

This is a really good idea. Ted Bartlett of Denver Broncos blog "It's All Over Fatman" has come up with an idea to describe defensive schemes using a series of letters, as if they were personalities in the Myers-Briggs Indicator. You end up with descriptions that are much more detailed than just "3-4" vs. "4-3," not to mention more applicable in a league where teams now have to play nickel or dime the majority of the time. The splits:
Stack (2-gap) vs. Penetrate (1-gap)
Downhill run D vs. Flow run D
Man vs. Zone
Coverage-oriented vs. Blitz-oriented

So much for that great addition the Seahawks made this offseason. The details don't seem to be quite clear, but Percy Harvin has tweeted that he's having surgery on the torn labrum in his hip. He'll be out for at least half the season, possibly more. Sidney Rice is also having some sort of knee problem that has him going to Switzerland for treatment, but the Seahawks claim he will be ready not just for the start of the regular season but for the start of the preseason.
