Ground Game: Spills, Fits, and Ninkovich

I know what you're thinking: It's about time the New England Patriots got a little coverage on this site. The good news is this isn't a story about Bill Belichick's frosty demeanor, or Tom Brady's latest modeling gig. No, this piece by Brian Filipiak at Sons of Sam Horn breaks down the recent successes and failures of the New England run defense, and though it's a specific analysis of the Patriots, there's a lot of good stuff in here that will help explain what's going on with any other team.

Week 7 Injury Aftermath

This was probably not the week to be playing center in the NFL. This is definitely not the year to be playing offensive line for the Falcons.

MMQB: Peyton in his Prime

At long last, Peter King gives Peyton Manning a little respect. Plus, what Calvin Johnson means (or doesn't mean) to the Lions, thoughts on the Percy Harvin trade, the meltdown in Chicago, and more.

Tanier's Week 7 Game Previews

The silliness of figuring out how large fan bases are using a Harris poll, and hastily re-edited diagrams of the Seahawks offense.

Deep Drive: The New York Jets' 1-5 Mess

Thanks to Chase Stuart on Twitter for pointing out this well-written analysis of the state of the New York Jets. There's a persuasive argument here that it's time to move on from Rex Ryan. Personally, I think Ryan did a very good job in New York his first few years but I agree that it is time for a new direction there. And as writer Joe Caporoso points out, when you look just at players brought in during the last two seasons, blaming John Idzik for the problems doesn't really seem realistic.
