But what if a snowstorm hits the stadium? And what if it is named Snowstorm Rypien?

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.

This week, Peter talks to Richard Sherman (and Lil' Wayne?), profiles Pete Carroll returning to his earlier stomping grounds, and puts Cleveland's coaching search and draft possibilities under the spotlight.

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.

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.

Are the best defenses against play action the best against regular passes too? How much impact does play action really have in an NFL game, and does it correlate from year to year?
