I can't imagine an NFL labor stoppage. There's just too much money to be made for the sides not to come together on a deal. Having said that, it sure seems like the current collective bargaining agreement talks are hitting a lot of stumbling blocks. The latest is that the owners have cancelled their upcoming meeting because there's no CBA progress to discuss.
Note: One of the many things I like about Len Pasquarelli is that he breaks a lot of stories himself, but when other news outlets break the news first, he credits them. "League vice president of public relations Greg Aiello confirmed the cancellation, which was first reported by Bloomberg News," Pasquarelli writes. I often read other Web sites and publications that repeat contract numbers Pasquarelli reported without giving him credit.

Ben Roethlisberger's ability to perform under a heavy pass rush remains critical to Pittsburgh's offensive success.
