Tough break here for the Rams and for Sam Bradford, who will miss the entire 2014 season after another tear in his left ACL in Saturday night's preseason game against Cleveland. It's the same ACL he tore in the middle of last year. Veteran Shaun Hill now becomes the Rams' starting quarterback; he at least has a good track record of avoiding turnovers. They'll surely be scouring the waiver wire the next week or two to find a better backup than Austin Davis. Meanwhile, this is probably the end for Bradford in St. Louis, as he has a cap number around $16 million for next year.

Robert Mays at Grantland searches for an NFL equivalent to the NBA's corner three-pointer, a low-risk, high-reward play that works for most teams in most situations. After you've read his research and his conclusion, you might be interested in this and this.
Hat tip to reader Bowl Game Anomaly for the suggestion.
