  1. Thank You for Not Coaching, Week 14

    Bill Barnwell

    Sometimes it takes a really weird context to get coaches to be aggressive. I'm not going to be naming any of the myriad decisions to go for two from the Eagles-Lions snowstorm as candidates for good or bad calls in this week's Thank You for Not Coach...

  2. Thank You for Not Coaching, Week 9

    Bill Barnwell

    I have to begin this week's column by passing along my best wishes to John Fox and Gary Kubiak, who each had medical episodes this weekend that caught them by surprise. In both cases, fortunately, it seems like the symptoms manifested themselves befo...

  3. Thank You for Not Coaching, Week 5

    Bill Barnwell

    Mike Smith just can't get it right these days. When he's aggressive, his team fails and gets second-guessed. When he's conservative, his team eventually fails and gets second-guessed some more. I was ready to give his Falcons a week off from this spa...

  4. Handing Out the NFL's Quarter-Season Awards

    Bill Barnwell

    During Monday Night Football, Jon Gruden noted that every one of the coaches he knows (which is presumably a lot of coaches) breaks up the season into four quarters. It's their way of breaking down the season into manageable chunks; if you can go 2-2...

  7. The Saints' Woes Go Beyond Payton's Absence

    Bill Barnwell

    What's happened to the New Orleans Saints? Unquestionably the most disappointing team in football through four games, last year's 13-3 NFC South champions have become just the second 13-3 team in league history to start the year at 0-4, joining the 2...

  8. Are We Sure That Bill Parcells Is the Right Guy for the Saints?

    Bill Barnwell

    While Sean Payton is appealing the year-long suspension that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell laid down as part of Bountygate, it seems unlikely that the appeals court — namely, Roger Goodell — will find any reason to significantly shorten ...

  9. Sean Payton's Suspension Wasn't About Bounties

    Bill Barnwell

    Let's be very clear about this. The New Orleans Saints are not reeling today because the defense chose to implement a bounty system designed to injure other quarterbacks. They are not reeling because some jilted informant told the league about their ...
