  3. Carter comes around on Calvin Johnson

    Kevin Seifert

    I guess it's time to close the circle on one of the sillier "debates" we've had on this blog. You might recall that in August 2011, ESPN analyst Cris Carter rattled off his top six receivers in the NFL in a radio interview. None of them were Calvin J...

  9. A closer look at Martin Mayhew's drafts

    Kevin Seifert

    As many of you have pointed out, the release of Detroit Lions receiver Titus Young pretty much wrapped up the "Have at It" debates we generated a few years ago about the best young receiver in the NFC North. (Hint: It wasn't Young.) It also opens the...

    Kevin Seifert

    I got involved in a Twitter discussion Tuesday, shortly after San Francisco 49ers receiver Randy Moss suggested he is the best receiver in NFL history. We could debate that assertion for hours, especially as it relates to the generally-accepted G.O.A...

    Kevin Seifert

    There has been considerable debate in recent weeks on whether or not the Green Bay Packers should replace place-kicker Mason Crosby. To this point, the Packers have stood behind him. It appears we were focused on the wrong veteran player. Even aft...

  13. Dirty Laundry: (Il)legal celebrations

    Kevin Seifert

    Watching Sunday night's game from NFC North blog headquarters allowed me to monitor your Twitter discussion more closely than if I had been at Lambeau Field, and one of the larger debates of contention came during a series of post-touchdown celebrati...

    Kevin Seifert

    Thanks to those of you who participated in Tuesday's SportsNation chat. One of your questions merited a follow-up, mostly because it pointed out an important nuance in Tuesday's post on the potential for personal seat licenses (PSLs) at the Minnesota...

  15. The Jay Cutler personality debate is over

    Kevin Seifert

  16. NFL got what it deserved, but does it care?
