Great article by Jason Lisk over at The Big Lead. He went back with a Lexis search to show that people have been complaining about the NFL watering down its product since before the start of free agency. This is a general rule of sportswriting: the golden age was always 10 or 15 years ago.
Yes, believe it or not, there were NFL games in the 90s with lots of penalties and turnovers and sometimes bad offensive line play. And sometimes in the 80s, and 70s, and 60s.

I look at why Cam Newton's press conference grumble-puss routine is really a problem and go out of my way NOT to explore what Colin Kaepernick's mediocrity says about 'Murica.

The Baltimore Ravens this morning fired offensive coordinator Marc Trestman in the wake of yesterday's 16-10 loss to Washington. Trestman, notorious at times for gleefully abandoning the run, called 50 passes to just 18 runs even though Terrence West and Buck Allen were averaging more yards per play running than Joe Flacco was throwing. Marty Mornhinweg, who had been serving as quarterbacks coach, replaces him.

Everything is just a subliminal meditation on the state of American politics and societal discourse.

We've got players and coaches who are cranky about losses, commentators who are cranky about players, and middle-aged men cranky at these damn millenials, and yes, Bill Belichick cranky about tablets.
