  2. Where coaches, execs disagree on QBs

    Mike Sando

    A clash between a coach and a general manager can tear apart a franchise: It happened in San Diego with Marty Schottenheimer and A.J. Smith; in Dallas with Jimmy Johnson and Jerry Jones; and in St. Louis with Mike Martz and Rams executives. Still,...

  5. Offseason grades for every NFL team

    Mike Sando

    The 2014 NFL draft is finished and free agency has pretty much run its course. Rosters aren't quite set for training camp, but they're close enough to hand out letter grades for front offices based on offseason work completed to this point. Bill P...

  6. Darrelle Revis' value, potential team fits

    Mike Sando

    Two decades ago, the San Francisco 49ers had reached three NFC Championship Games in a four-year window without winning a Super Bowl. Instead of staying the course, they moved aggressively to sign Deion Sanders, then the game's best cover cornerback....

  7. Teams most likely to return to playoffs

    Mike Sando

    The first Super Bowl in the New York metropolitan area features two teams from far, far away. That is fitting because the West teams were best in 2013. While six of the eight NFL teams from the AFC West and NFC West finished with winning records, the...

  8. Defense still key for NFL champions?

    Mike Sando

    SEATTLE -- When the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks faced each other in the 2013 preseason, I remember thinking the game had a regular-season feel to it. There was an edge to both teams that felt misplaced for August. Peyton Manning and Russell W...

  9. Can Denver win minus Manning?

    Mike Sando

    Strange as it sounds, some of the Denver Broncos' AFC West rivals wouldn't mind if Peyton Manning & Co. won the Super Bowl this season. It's not that they are secretly fans of the Broncos -- far from it. But in assessing their own prospects, they rea...

    Mike Sando

    The Detroit Lions offered what many around the NFL thought was one of the two best coaching opportunities this offseason, rivaled only by what Houston could offer. Their next head coach was going to benefit from stable ownership, a relatively new sta...

  11. Colts can run with AFC's best

    Mike Sando

    Nothing much about the Indianapolis Colts' shocking 45-44 victory Saturday felt sustainable. Falling behind 38-10, as the Colts did before rallying to beat the Chiefs, amplified familiar questions about Indy's viability as a Super Bowl contender. It ...

  12. Ranking Week 17's biggest games

    Mike Sando

    Week 17, also known as Super Bowl week in Dallas, is going to be a wild one not just in Texas, but across the NFL. At least 10 teams will fight for five playoff berths, four teams will claim division titles and, in a shocker, Seattle might not be one...

  13. Quinn for Defensive Player of the Year

    Mike Sando

    There was no debate in selecting the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year for 2012. There was Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt, and then way down below there was everyone else. Watt led the league in sacks with 20.5 and had more pass breakups...

  14. Peyton Manning's season best ever?

    Mike Sando

    Peyton Manning's directive to shove the prevailing cold-weather narrative about him "where the sun don't shine" should rank high on his list of impressive comebacks. It's not that Manning has always played well in the cold -- he hasn't. It's more ...

  16. What sets Luck, Wilson apart

    Mike Sando

    Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson had help. Let's be clear about that. But in leading their teams to Week 9 comeback victories against nearly impossible odds, they became common denominators in a staggering NFL equation. Teams are 5-59 since the start o...
