The Colts took Iowa safety Bob Sanders with their first pick, No. 44 overall. That was more than four months ago. He still hasn't signed. Neither side wants to play this out in the media (unlike the Rivers and Winslow negotiations), so it's impossible to say who's being more unreasonable. But in any event, it's very bizarre for a second-rounder to continue a holdout for this long.
Short-yardage passing had a good year, except at the end of the Super Bowl. We look at the return of quarterback runs, the rise in pass-happy strategy, and 2014 success rates for offense and defense.
