Titans Fire Ken Whisenhunt

The Titans hired Ken Whisenhunt to take over a team that went 7-9 in 2013. He's gone 3-20 since. But when you fire a guy after less than two years... I've got to wonder if there's more of a story going on behind the scenes here than just "Tennessee isn't winning games." Mike Mularkey takes over as interim coach.

Broncos Trade for Vernon Davis

Yay, actual trade deadline deals. We don't get many of those in the NFL. The 49ers are sending Vernon Davis and a 2016 seventh-round pick to Denver for sixth-round picks in 2015 and 2016. Not much value there for San Francisco, especially because I wonder if Denver might get a compensatory sixth- or seventh-round pick if Davis signs elsewhere after this season.

ESPN Shutting Down Grantland

This is pretty much bad news for anyone who is trying to make a living as a sportswriter, so as you can imagine we're all a little bummed around here. We're particularly upset for our friend and former colleague Bill Barnwell. Just a crummy day, all in all.

NBC: Broncos-Packers Overload

In case you haven't noticed, the undefeated Packers are playing the undefeated Broncos on Sunday Night Football this week, and a couple 6-0 teams meeting up is kind of a big deal. So, I wrote a couple pieces about it.
