The NFL is certainly not perfect, and there are issues to address, but the current hyperbolic wave of criticism of the NFL is getting a bit ridiculous. The NFL can't solve social problems that no other institution has fully solved, and the NFL can't make football 100 percent safe any more than it could make skateboarding or baseball 100 percent safe. Roger Goodell can't go back in time and teach players of the 1970's about concussions any more than Bud Selig can go back to make sure Ryan Freel never gets a concussion.

How to turn the Super Bowl into the holiday it truly is. As usual, I am doing gags heading into the week so I don't burn out on other things, but stick around to the end for a piece what makes Russell Wilson unique enough to lead the Seahawks to the Super Bowl.

Pretty hilarious, I punched a high school kid in the knee.

Look, kids, Cleveland has a head coach! It's former Bills and Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. Pettine helped take the Bills defense from 27th in DVOA in 2012 to fourth in 2013, and the Cleveland defensive personnel would seem to be a great fit for Pettine's aggressive hybrid 3-4/4-3 defense. Barkevious Mingo is going to go nuts. Whether Pettine has the CEO-like skills required of a head coach, and whether he can hire a useful offensive coordinator, I have no clue.

Before I watched the championship games, I watched scouts and general managers grab Senior Bowl prospects who were barely off the plane and sit them down for interviews. It's a reminder that everything we see in the playoffs is just a tip of the iceberg.

I did an annual appearance on the Betting Dork podcast last week in between working on playoff previews and dealing with my usual nonsense. We didn't do much on the conference championships, but talked a bit about futures for 2014, Twitter criticism, and the limits of both stat analysis and all-22 footage.
Is Kurt Warner a Hall of Fame quarterback? We dissect both sides of the case from multiple angles.
