  5. 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...

  9. The Dallas Cowboys Are Trying to Kill Me

    Andrew Sharp

    Don't let your kids become bandwagon fans. It seems like an OK idea at the time, because hey their favorite team is winning and they're happy and that's all that matters. But one day that great team will stop being great, and then your son or daughte...

  15. 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...
