Cam Newton stepped up. Others did not. Had a lot of fun watching film of the Dolphins offensive line and Cowboys secondary while prepping this piece. And by fun, I mean I never want to see either unit again.

Peyton Manning broke the single-season passing touchdown record for the second time. Where does this stand in terms of a player breaking a record, losing it, only to regain it again?

Joel Corry of CBS Sportsline looks at the best and worst cap situations in the NFL going into the 2014 offseason. It's an interesting start to the offseason discussion. The top 10 are linked above, led by Oakland -- Lord knows they jettisoned enough money last offseason so they could be in this position a year later -- Jacksonville, and Cleveland. Also in surprisingly good cap shape: Washington and Green Bay.

Our old friend Bill Barnwell updates a study he did for Football Outsiders Almanac 2011, showing which teams truly have the strongest home-field advantage over the past decade. The answer: the NFC West, the Ravens (surprise!) and not the Saints (surprise again!). However, the gigantic difference between each team's home-field advantage from 2002-2010 and their home-field advantage from 1990-2001 makes you wonder how "real" these differences truly are. Why would the Broncos and Jaguars have advantages that were so much bigger in the 90s than in the 00s?

Down the stretch I come, thinking about how the Lions are turning into the Cowboys, the Chiefs into the Eagles, the Eagles into the old Eagles, and the Cowboys and Redskins into high satire.

L’Damien Washington has the build and athleticism of A.J. Green, but he needs to go to finishing school to model this NFL star’s game. Read the analysis of his game at the RSP blog.

As usual, I have a lot of stuff going on over at Sports on Earth, including a Referee Year in Review you might like. But I don't want to junk up Extra Points with everything that pops into my pointy little head, and I thought you guys might be more interested in this: an All Pro team of the Snyderest Dan Snyder decisions that Snyder ever Snydered.

This is such an amazingly good idea that I'm kicking myself for not thinking of it first. Aaron Gordon of Sports on Earth went through a series of games and actually tracked how often announcers used cliches, got plays wrong, or spoke utter nonsense in order to create a ranking of the best and worst announcers. The results are very close to what you would expect. I feel particularly vindicated because I often say that Brian Billick is the best color guy on the two main networks.

Shhh... While nobody noticed, J.J. Watt set yet another record for our defensive stats, this time for quarterback hits. (Click to read more.)

You've just been awarded an NFL expansion team and must build your personnel department. How would you do it? Matt Waldman takes on the exercise.
