    INDIANAPOLIS -- Looks like I won the blog network's Cannonball Run to the NFL scouting combine. With Jamie Farr riding shotgun and Bert Convy in the backseat of my wood-paneled station wagon, I've completed my mad dash to Indianapolis ahe...

    Tim Graham

    MIAMI -- Rain is falling and flags are flapping in Sun Life Stadium. Stormy weather could be a factor for Sunday's big AFC match between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins here. But at least it won't be a mud bath if it continues to rai...

  3. Jets start season more sloppy than super

    Tim Graham

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- So many yellow flags. They were strewn all over. They doomed the New York Jets in a 10-9 loss on Monday night. There have been red flags with the Jets, too. Not of the challenge variety, mind you. But maybe that's what ...

  4. Chan Gailey out to eliminate sloppy flags

    Tim Graham

    PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Chan Gailey nearly recoiled when I brought up the subject. Presnap penalties. Every coach dislikes a yellow flag before the play begins. Gailey seems to have a more intense disdain for presnap penalties th...

  8. Patriot Nation flag flying upside down

    Tim Graham

    To put it bluntly, the New England Patriots don't play like champions anymore. ESPN's team of the decade, coach of the decade and player of the decade apparently won't sprint through the finish line because based on their past four games, they jus...

  10. Calls and Effect: AFC East penalty tracker

    Tim Graham

    There's value in taking a look beyond the number of penalties a team commits to see what it's being flagged for most often. If a team keeps getting caught for the same infraction, it can be telling. Nine teams have double-digit flags for a spec...

  12. Calls and Effect: AFC East penalty tracker

    Tim Graham

    We've already hammered the Buffalo Bills enough this week about their proclivity for yellow flags. Plenty has been written about their league-leading 51 flags and league-leading 44 accepted penalties and left tackle Demetrius Bell topping the NFL ...

  15. Calls and Effect: AFC East penalty tracker

    Tim Graham

    Nobody can dispute the New York Jets are a nasty horde. You could tell by the bewildered expressions on Matt Schaub's and Tom Brady's faces. Another indication of the Jets' aggression can be found in the amount of yellow flags that have been throw...
