I know, I should not keep going back to the Jay Cutler well. But I am not the only one making him look silly in the name of self-branding: I am clearly in line behind his fiance. At any rate, here is some football stuff.

Ware isn’t a breakaway threat; he’s a hot-running, helmet-crunching, break-your-back, ball-carrying warrior. He’s rugged, smart, and technically sound in most aspects of the game. If Seattle didn’t have a Robert Turbin, Ware is the back I’d want backing up Marshawn Lynch. If Mike Shanahan wants a lean, mean, running back depth chart, he can dispense with most of the backs behind Alfred Morris and opt for Ware.

After I saw the table in this article showing the explosion in the media's use of the phrase "elite quarterback," I was put on suicide watch. Of course, Joe Theismann is one of the people to blame for this nonsense. Can we please take this phrase behind the barn and beat it to death with a shovel?

Matt Waldman's views on the potential issues that arise from NFL teams balancing talent vs. need when it comes to drafting a quarterback and why this hurts an underrated talent like Tulane QB Ryan Griffin versus a "draft-not-to-lose" commodity like N.C. State's Mike Glennon.

We want to see if this is a common problem, and if so, we want to fix it.

Joe Flacco just won the Super Bowl despite being just 17th in QB DYAR during the season. Eli Manning won it back in 2007 even though he was 40th in DYAR. What happened to only the best quarterbacks winning Super Bowls? Neil Paine points out that this really isn't any different from the rest of Super Bowl history.

In this week's Monday Morning Quarterback, Peter King writes about the only NFL game played on Sunday, plus thoughts on the Hall of Fame voting and the rest of the Super Bowl week experience. My favorite part was Jimmy Smith talking about the 49ers' final offensive play: "It was pretty obvious by then the receiver was being physical, and I was being physical, and the refs were letting that stuff go." Yep.
