If Sammy Watkins didn’t possess excellent hands and speed, he wouldn’t be a top prospect at his position. However, it’s the little things that make Watkins a special prospect.

PK talks more fallout from Sam, the Wells Report, and, for some reason, T.J. Oshie.

A little Michael Sam, a little Incognito, a lot of Blake Bortles, and an effort to help you get through the next two weeks with your sanity in check.

Well, so much for all that vindication Richie Incognito was claiming he'd have on Twitter a few days ago. Deadspin has a roundup of the worst of the worst from the 144-page report. John Jerry and Mike Pouncey apparently aren't angels either.

I promise, I really do like a lot about the LSU receiver's game, but when a top prospect provides good teaching opportunities, you take it. Read about route stems in this dissection of an interception of a route targeting Landry at the RSP blog.

It's defense overhaul time in New Orleans, as the Saints today cut veteran defensive end Will Smith, cornerback Jabari Greer, and safety Roman Harper. Actually... that's not so much of a defensive overhaul. Smith missed last season with a torn ACL. Greer was demoted to nickelback and Harper to third safety. While Greer used to be an FO binky, I think Smith is really the name here. He could be a really nice veteran addition if there's a team out there that needs a situational pass rusher and wants to get jiggy with it.

Time for one of our occasional calls looking for videotapes of old games so we can complete past seasons of play-by-play and do DVOA/DYAR ratings. (Click to read more.)

During the offseason, we'll continue to be choosing star players for special Football Outsiders elite cards in Madden 25 Ultimate Team, based on strong performances in our various stats in 2013. This week, we're starting with a whole offensive line representing the top five teams in Adjusted Line Yards, our stat which breaks down runs of different lengths to get an idea of which teams get the best run blocking.
The Wonderlic is great for testing future loan officers, but Matt Waldman would rather have Wonderlic failures like Jim Kelly or Ray Lewis as his on-field CEOs.
