Sources: Calvin Johnson Has Told Lions He Will Retire

I never quite know at what point we should be posting news of the "sources report" variety. I usually prefer for a trade or retirement or cut to actually be announced. But at this point there have been enough reports that Calvin Johnson is going to retire that I think we can consider this one on the up-and-up.

NFL Announces Super Bowl 50 Golden Team

The NFL has announced its all-time Super Bowl 50 Golden Team, "celebrating the best overall career performances in the Super Bowl." As you would expect, the roster is dominated by Steelers -- seven Pittsburgh players made the list, followed by five Cowboys, four 49ers, three Raiders, and three Packers. (Though that tally gets complicated by Deion Sanders and Charles Haley, each of whom played in a Super Bowl with both Dallas and San Francisco. I just counted one as a 49er, one as a Cowboy.) Only one Patriot makes the list: kicker Adam Vinatieri.

NFL Coaches Are Getting Away With Crimes Against Middle-School Math

Benjamin Morris at 538.com points out that in all the madness of Andy Reid's clock mutilation and Aaron Rodgers' Hails of Mary, few noticed that both the Chiefs and Packers kicked extra points when basic math and league-wide averages said they should have gone for two. This is actually a few days old, but hey, Morris used my Tweet, so it's only fair to mention his piece here.
