AFC West fits for Darrelle Revis - Bill Williamson
San Diego’s two starting cornerbacks, Quentin Jammer and Antoine Cason, are free agents. This is a need area -- but only one of many such trouble spots. Unless they get creative in both trade compensation and in a new contract for Revis, this might be a tad difficult to maneuver.
Exclusive Interview from the Senior Bowl with Mike McCoy - Ricky Henne
We have a good idea already of what we’re going to do moving forward. We will have to make little adjustments along the way. Now, we haven’t had a ton of time to sit down and look at every day what we’re doing, but we have a good outline and idea of what we’ll be doing.
Wow. Junior Seau’s Family is Suing the NFL - bp
Wow. This is pretty surprising to me. I thought it could happen, just didn’t think it would. When it comes to blogging, I throw my opinion around on trivial stories all the time.

Chris Ault: Slow quarterbacks can find success in Pistol - Marc Sessler
"They could run the pistol formation," Ault said Tuesday on 'NFL AM.' "They don't need to run the read part of it. When we first put the pistol in, in 2005 and 2006 (at Nevada), that's all we ran. We ran the power, the gaps, the counters, the zones, the outside stuff. We did not run the read at that time. So, the pistol offense, the most important thing there, is you can run any offense you've been running. And this is how we created it, and then we advanced the pistol run game -- the read part of it -- two years later."
