Brandon Jacobs and Kevin Curtis were great in specialized roles, but can they succeed with more playing time? Fred Smoot sucked with more playing time, but can he succeed in a specialized role? Plus: Does the attention-hogging Terrell Owens read his playbook, and is he offended that we did not mention him until the third sentence of this intro to the latest Four Downs?

The latest Four Downs is all about appreciation. Doug Farrar appreciates the Hall of Fame career of Marshall Faulk as well as the new and improved front offices in Arizona and San Francisco. Most importantly, as a Seahawks fan, Doug appreciates the decision to let Jerramy Stevens leave Seattle.

It has been an exciting free agent period in the NFC North. The division has added consistent performers -- like Adam Archuleta, T.J. Duckett, Frank Walker, and Visanthe Shiancoe. Learn why the Bears should extend Lance Briggs, why Randy Moss is in decline, and why FO, possibly for the first time ever, has nice things to say about off-season moves in Detroit.

The free agent carousel is turning in the NFC South. June is busting out all over in Tampa, Patrick Kerney ditches Atlanta for a real nice clambake in Seattle, and Joe Horn blows high and blows low before blowing out of New Orleans. What's the use of wonderin' if the Panthers will make any moves when they are so low on cap space? You never walk alone when Mike Tanier breaks down the free agent action.

Aaron Schatz finishes off the first round of 2007 Four Downs with Jack Del Rio's thoughts on consistency, Houston's equivocation on David Carr, and Indy's chances of repeating. Plus: Whose responsibility is it to discipline Pac-Man Jones, really?

It's time for goodbyes in the AFC North. Goodbye to Eric Steinbach, to Adalius Thomas, and to Ken Whisenhunt. Goodbye, unfortunately, to LeCharles Bentley. Goodbye to Jamal Lewis? Perhaps not. Guest columnist Jeff Bathurst sits in to bring us the latest from the NFL's industrial belt.

The NFC North had three of the top six defenses last season, and now it has three new defensive coordinators. What does this say about the Bob Sanders you've never heard of? Plus: All the teams are loaded with cap room, but is there anyone out there to spend it on?

Charles Grant braces for the franchise tag, the Bucs talk trade, Michael Vick calls his own shots, Keyshawn Johnson remodels a condo, and the god of wine dislocates his non-bead-tossing elbow. It's Mardi Gras in the NFC South, and everyone's invited except Dan Henning.

Put on a pot of coffee; this edition of Four Downs is chock full of info. Bill Barnwell looks at overused running backs, second-half receivers, the Colts' #2 receiver, Dallas Clark, and the worst run defenses in the history of DVOA. See if you can guess what they all relate to before reading the article.

In 2005, the NFC East was the league's best division with a historically strong collection of coaches. In 2006, one of those coaches lost his ability to motivate, one lost his ability to pick personnel, one quit, and one needs time off for his family. Three teams made the playoffs, but two of them backed in. What will become of the NFC East in 2007?
