I have fun "classifying" all 32 teams according to types this week: offensive teams, defensive teams, doubt generators, and so on. Not all of the categories match the numbers precisely, but it makes for some fun comparisons. Follow the link (or Click around Sports on Earth) for my take on the 49ers offense, such as it is.

I did a radio spot with Seth Payne and Mike Meltzer that mainly focused on what the Texans should be looking for with Case Keenum, but there's plenty of general Texans discussion as well.

Case Keenum is the most surprising bench player in the NFL this year. I’ve studied his three starts and I believe the Cardinals defense provided the best evidence that the Texans’ new starter has the potential to succeed long-term. Read the rest at the RSP blog.

Remember the Blueprint for stopping the 2007 Giants? It has been six years, so I figured I could dust off the blueprint concept without repeating myself. Here is a detailed breakdown of Chiefs defensive tactics that can stop the Broncos.

The Nelson-Aaron Rodgers combo is among the best in football at the back-shoulder fade. One of the reasons this play remains so effective for the Packers’ duo is that Nelson is equally strong at earning separation against press coverage and winning 50/50 balls in the vertical game. Defenders cannot assume every deep pass is a back-shoulder play. Read the rest at the RSP blog.

Let this be a lesson: if you're an old safety that can't really play anymore, at least be an old safety that can't really play anymore that keeps his mouth shut.

Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu is playing his tail off and the biggest reason this rookie has made the jump from LSU to the NFL with a year away from football in between is his mental command of the game. Mathieu is an incisive player and it’s easy to see this quality on the field. The RSP blog profiles two plays against the Texans – notably Andre Johnson and Ben Tate – where Mathieu demonstrates multiple skills with no wasted motion.

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.
