Irvin In, Monk Out of Hall of Fame

The newest members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame are: Gene Hickerson, Michael Irvin, Bruce Matthews, Charlie Sanders, Thurman Thomas and Roger Wehrli.

Art Monk was snubbed again, and I thought this was his best chance. I don't think he's going to make it.

Vick: Now, With Audibles

New Falcons coach Bobby Petrino is going to allow Michael Vick to -- gasp -- call audibles at the line (hey!) if plays look doomed next season. No word on whether he will stop Vick from employing the offense solely to earn Madden Challenge Points.

Digital Projectors Worth the Splurge

"Got a haircut, got a silver tooth, gonna get myself arrested." Josh Levin from Slate.com reviews will be watching the Super Bowl on a 134-inch screen. Call the NFL screen-inch police! For the sake of consistency, doesn't the league have to send Levin a cease-and-desist order?

NFL Lawyers Sack Church's Game Plan

This sounds like a joke, but it isn't... the NFL sent a cease-and-desist order to a church in Indianapolis, telling them they cannot promote a Super Bowl party with the words "Super Bowl," charge for snacks, or show the game on a screen larger than 55 inches. We can all talk about how stupid this is, but what I want to know is the other side's argument. How are the NFL's legal rights challenged by charging for snacks or showing the game on a screen of, say, 56 inches? Props to Pro Football Talk for pointing out this article.

In an effort to crack the code, for the last 10 days Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera has "watched the actual television coverage of each of the Indianapolis Colts' previous games, with the volume turned up loud, paying particular attention to everything Peyton Manning does -- and says -- in the typically animated seconds before he snaps the ball." Colts center Jeff Saturday thinks 70 percent of what Manning does at the line "isn't real." Tight end Dallas Clark puts the estimate at two percent. Manning, of course, isn't saying.

Biletnikoff Retires from Raiders

Suspect there's a little bit more to this one than meets the eye. Well, the AP story's eye, at least.
