  3. HOF: All Cris Carter did was ... play

    Kevin Seifert

    All Cris Carter did, as the legendary Chris Berman made famous, was catch touchdowns. There were 130 of them in all, a total that ranked second in NFL history when he retired in 2002. But behind the touchdowns, and at the root of the shoestring ca...

  5. Gary Knafelc: NFL wants retirees to 'die off'

    Kevin Seifert

    During the 2011 NFL lockout, it seemed a day wouldn't go by without a retired player ripping the league and its Players Association for both for what was perceived as inadequate medical, insurance and disability treatment. And while all sides have ta...

    Kevin Seifert

    We're Black and Blue All Over: No player has worn No. 50 for the Chicago Bears since Mike Singletary's last game 21 years ago, but it was not retired and apparently will not be anytime soon. The team issued it to new linebacker James Anderson, aft...

  9. David Akers: In decline or on rebound?

    Kevin Seifert

    The Detroit Lions signed veteran place-kicker David Akers on Friday night, and to me it's fair to ask if the Lions will hand him the 2013 job outright or pit him in a competition before deciding who will replace the retired Jason Hanson. Akers is ...

    Kevin Seifert

    We're Black and Blue All Over: PHOENIX -- The Detroit Lions drafted a left tackle in the first round of the 2012 draft. In 2013, their longtime left tackle retired. But it's apparently not as simple as connecting the dots between the retirement of...

  12. Rare post-football success for Alex Karras

    Kevin Seifert

    Alex Karras retired from the NFL before I was born. So for me and many others who grew up in places other than Detroit, he was a goofball actor who -- we found out later -- just so happened to be a pretty darn good football player a few decades earli...

  13. FavreWatch: The coach in action

    Kevin Seifert

    ESPN's Ed Werder caught up with retired quarterback Brett Favre, whom I'm told once played in the NFC North, to discuss his new role as the offensive coordinator at Oak Grove (Miss.) High School. I got a kick out of watching Favre, in his own word...

  15. HOF: Chris Doleman wanted fumbles

    Kevin Seifert

    Quarterback Peyton Manning's pending availability won't have too much impact on the NFC North. It should, however, influence the landing spot of what is arguably our top free agent. Had Manning remained with the Indianapolis Colts or retired, Gree...
