Great Don Banks longform writing from SI.com about the day in 1982 when the Tampa Bay Bucs drafted the wrong guy thanks to crappy speaker phone quality. The Bucs ended up making a trade to use another pick on the guy they wanted in the first place, and he was a complete bust. Meanwhile, the guy they took by accident became an All-Pro.

Seeing the glass half-full is a great way to understand what teams are truly hoping to accomplish this weekend. This weekend! The draft is just a few days away! Finally!

A lot of these YouTube sports humor videos are pretty blah but I have to admit, this one made me laugh. Pretty amusing. (Whispers: "Tebow.")

Per media reports, it's a four-year, $40 million extension, with $27.25 million in guaranteed money. Thomas will be the first safety in the NFL to make $10 million a year.

A deep, painful dive into the world of Sam Bradford and Brian Schottenheimer. Stick around to the bitter end or check the Tailgater blog to see my Dali paintings of Schotty's melting-clock screen passes.

Tom Benson gives some money to a good cause, and we get some more draft rumor-mongering.

The first of a series of posts where Joel Corry and Ari Nissim hammer out a mock extension for one of the most valuable non-quarterbacks in the NFL.

Let this XP serve as a notice that Matt Bowen is doing an outstanding job at Bleacher Report on this NFL 101 series. He's breaking down common routes and coverage concepts while also delving into keys.

This hit the outtakes of my Factors post, but there was one particular Andre Johnson v. Richard Sherman route that was head-and-shoulders above anything else I'd seen while charting wideouts. Two masters of their craft. Brett Kollman at Battle Red Blog took it upon himself to look at it.
