Our own Robert Weintraub has an article over at Sports on Earth looking into how the NFL might change by 2020. Some of it is tongue-in-cheek, but some of it is serious. I definitely would not be surprised to see some sort of "Accu-Spotter" system, or an attempt to put limits on the work schedules of coaches. I doubt there will be an upstart seven-on-seven league, but I do think that rules to limit hitting won't destroy football's popularity because at this point fans are more interested in speed than violence. (They may be more interested in spectacle than either.)

Brian Burke takes an analytical approach to the question of momentum, comparing the usual performance level of teams to their performance in the drive after a supposedly momentum-swinging play.

I’d like to believe that last weekend will be the beginning of a long and fruitful career as an NFL starter for Bobby Rainey, but I’m not naive. The one position in the NFL where there is no shortage of talent is running back. There may be teams that lack a good eye for matching running back talent with its roster, but there are backs training at home with the ability to produce as an NFL starter if called upon.
While he has the NFL’s attention, the RSP blog examines what Rainey has done thus far that is consistent with his performance as a college prospect.
