This story is a little sad. Michael Munoz, the son of Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz, went undrafted during the weekend and says he's giving up football. When I first heard of Michael Munoz, I was excited about him. He sounded like the kind of great talent that his father was. So I watched him when he played at Tennessee, and, well, he just wasn't all that good. Not a bad player, a good, solid blocker, but nowhere near what I had been led to believe from some of the newspaper and magazine articles I had read about him. He's had a lot of injuries, and he's going to do other things with his life. Good for him.
Just in case Sunday night did not make it clear, defense rules the NFL in 2016. The best teams in overall DVOA all combine top-five defenses with below-average offenses. The Eagles now lead the league in both defense and special teams and are back to No. 1 overall.
