  1. Wiretapping could bring stiff penalty

    Pat Yasinskas

    What started as a prank has turned into a very serious matter for two Massachusetts men. The two reportedly are facing federal wiretapping charges for recording a conversation between Tampa Bay general manager and former Buffalo general manager Bu...

  2. Screen game clicked for Falcons

    Pat Yasinskas

    As Atlanta offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter interviews for jobs as a head coach, it's time to take a look at one of the most significant wrinkles he brought to the Falcons. That's the screen-passing game. Predecessor Mike Mularkey rarely used th...

  3. Screen passes working for Falcons

    Pat Yasinskas

    We've talked a lot about how coordinator Dirk Koetter has made the screen pass a much bigger part of Atlanta's offense this season. Let's talk a little more about Atlanta's screen game, which was rarely used by former coordinator Mike Mularkey. Ko...

  4. Other NFC South QBs lag in salary

    Pat Yasinskas

    All the talk about Drew Brees' quest for a new contract that will make him the highest-paid player in the NFL got me thinking about quarterback salaries and average per year. It remains very likely that, sometime between now and Monday afternoon, ...

  5. Joe Vitt has weathered tough times before

    Pat Yasinskas

    On the surface, Joe Vitt's tenure as an interim head coach in St. Louis doesn't look very pretty. But dig beneath the surface a little bit and you'll find a different story. I spoke with several people who observed Vitt's time as the Rams' head co...

  6. Freeman, Newton have room to improve

    Pat Yasinskas

    We frequently talk here about how the NFC South might be the league's only division with four franchise quarterbacks. I'm in agreement with that because New Orleans' Drew Brees and Atlanta's Matt Ryan are well established as franchise quarterbacks...

  7. Pat Yasinskas' QB Watch

    Pat Yasinskas

    Tim Tebow aside, the biggest quarterback story in the league this year might be one that's really about next year. What should the Indianapolis Colts do? They almost certainly will have the first pick in the 2012 draft, and Stanford's Andrew Lu...

  8. Falcons, Saints thrive on play action

    Pat Yasinskas

    I've always said running back Michael Turner is the key to Atlanta's offense. I think the Atlanta Falcons still were trying to figure out exactly what they wanted to be offensively early in the season. They were trying to work in rookie receiver J...

  9. Pat Yasinskas' QB Watch

    Pat Yasinskas

    It's real easy to say Tom Brady and Ryan Fitzpatrick never should be mentioned in the same sentence. But that's not accurate right now. Brady's New England Patriots and Fitzpatrick's Buffalo Bills each are 5-2. If you want to get really technical,...

  10. Pat Yasinskas' QB Watch

    Pat Yasinskas

    With Carolina's Cam Newton, there's been shock, awe and a lot of losing. With "the other" rookie quarterback that's been starting all season, there simply has been a lot of winning. That's Cincinnati's Andy Dalton, who, very quietly, has his team...

  11. Pat Yasinskas' QB Watch

    Pat Yasinskas

    Back in the New Orleans Saints' 2009 championship season, coach Sean Payton repeatedly told his players that if they wanted to go somewhere they'd never been before, they'd have to do things they never did before. That philosophy helped the Saints...

  12. Pat Yasinskas' QB Watch

    Pat Yasinskas

    If there's a lesson to be learned from Week 2 of this NFL season, it might be the more you smack a quarterback around and the deeper a hole you put him in, the more danger you're in. Take the cases of Tony Romo, Matt Ryan and Josh Freeman. All thr...

  13. Pat Yasinskas' QB Watch

    Pat Yasinskas

    There's an ancient NFL proverb that says you shouldn't play a rookie quarterback right away. If you do, the logic goes, you might ruin him. In breaking and somewhat related news: The world is flat. Yeah, Christopher Columbus shot the second one...

  14. QB you'd least like to take a hit from

    Pat Yasinskas

    Earlier this week, I asked readers to name the quarterback they least would like to take a hit from. The question was prompted after Tampa Bay's Josh Freeman got fined $5,000 for a late hit on Atlanta cornerback Brent Grimes last week. Here are so...

  15. Josh Freeman takes lead in air time

    Pat Yasinskas

    We've talked quite about how Tampa Bay's Josh Freeman has one of the strongest arms in the league. Well, the evidence just keeps getting stronger. Freeman has moved into the lead in a statistical category that's not officially kept by the league, ...

  16. Bucs letting Josh Freeman air it out

    Pat Yasinskas

    One of the more interesting things I've come across in this week's package of numbers from ESPN Stats & Information is the category "air yards per attempt". It's basically self explanatory - how many yards quarterbacks are actually throwing t...
