Matt Waldman breaks down the pass protection of UNC RB prospect Gionvani Bernard and shows why an understanding of angles is often more important than physical strength and leverage.

My general-audience bit on the clash of strategies, the blackout adventure, and what this really means for fullbacks.

It looks like voters split the baby by giving Peyton Manning the Comeback Player of the Year award while handing the MVP to Adrian Peterson. Other winners included Bruce Arians as Coach of the Year, J.J. Watt as almost-unanimous Defensive Player of the Year (49 of 50 votes, the other going to Von Miller), and Robert Griffin and Luke Kuechly as Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Year.
Of course, these awards aren't really as important as the FO Reader Awards, which we'll announce in a week or so.

Larry Allen, Cris Carter, Curley Culp, Jonathan Ogden, Bill Parcells, Dave Robinson, and Warren Sapp were just announced on NFL Network as your 2013 Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinees.
Jerome Bettis, Charles Haley, Andre Reed, Michael Strahan, and Aeneas Williams all made the cutdown from 15 to 10, but were not among the five modern-era finalists. Tim Brown, Eddie DeBartolo, Kevin Greene, Art Modell, and Will Shields were the five modern-era finalists eliminated in the first cutdown.
Congratulations to the new enshrinees.

This article about Phil Simms has a lot of interesting anecdotes, both from his time with the Giants and his time as a broadcaster. His hatred of stats definitely seems to be tied to his own strengths and weaknesses as a player. Hopefully, Simms will read this article about himself, see the quotes from me, and finally learn how to pronounce "Asante Samuel."

Much like Aaron, I got invited to talk about the Super Bowl and the local football team today. If you don't want to hear exasperated sighs at the idea of Kevin Walter being a No. 2 receiver next season, don't listen to this. If you do want to hear a haiku that sums up the current state of the Texans, then feel free to tune in.

I appeared today on Chris Price's podcast on the website for Boston radio station WEEI, talking about the Patriots this season and what they should do this offseason. This is really Patriots-centric, so if you don't like to hear me talking about the Patriots, don't listen to this. If you want to know where I would like to see Brent Grimes playing next year, then do listen to it.
