The next challenge for the 1991 Redskins comes sometime in the next year or two, when we finish up DVOA for the 1984 49ers and 1985 Bears.

If he was ever tempted to play again, it seems like perhaps he had an offer to return. The New Orleans Times-Picayune, quoting Manning’s father Archie, said Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase hit…

        2017 NFL Preview: Bears tried fixing their QB issue, what's wrong with that?

        Shutdown Corner is previewing all 32 teams as we get ready for the NFL season, counting down the teams one per weekday in reverse order of our initial 2017 power rankings. No. 1 will be revealed on Aug. 2, the day before the Hall of Fame Game kicks off the preseason. The most important thing in the NFL is to have a quarterback. The most difficult job a team has, if it doesn’t have a franchise quarterback, is finding one. When Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace got a little creative and pretty aggressive to fix that problem this offseason, he was roundly criticized. He can’t win. The…

      • Kansas City Chiefs shake up front office, part ways with GM John Dorsey

        Kansas City Chiefs shake up front office, part ways with GM John Dorsey

        GM John Dorsey and the Chiefs have parted ways. (AP) The Kansas City Chiefs were full of news on Thursday afternoon. First, they announced coach Andy Reid got an extension. Then they announced they are parting ways with general manager John Dorsey. The Reid extension was expected. The Dorsey firing was not. Dorsey is done with the Chiefs, effective immediately. The team’s release said the two sides “agreed to part ways” after Dorsey was informed his contract wouldn’t be extended beyond this season. Dorsey is just the sixth general manager in team history, and had been with Kansas Cit…

      • Andy Reid, the most underrated coach of this era, gets an extension

        Andy Reid, the most underrated coach of this era, gets an extension

        Andy Reid has signed an extension with the Chiefs. (AP) Somewhere along the line everyone decided that the value of each player and coach is based solely on Super Bowl wins. It has gotten so bad, some people really think making it to a Super Bowl and losing is worse than not getting there at all (check out the Tom Brady vs. “4-0!” Joe Montana arguments, though those seem to be dead after Super Bowl LI). Andy Reid doesn’t have a ring. All Reid does is win a ton of his games and carry his teams further than they should reasonably go. He got to the Super Bowl once with the Philadelphia E…

      • The NFL MVP favorite is ... come on, you already know

        The NFL MVP favorite is ... come on, you already know

        And you thought the first month of the season was too early to talk NFL MVP. It’s fun to look at the gambling odds in June and start to wonder who will win. The favorite of some offshore gambling sites was never in doubt. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady nearly won MVP in only 12 games last season. Only Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan’s brilliance kept Brady from making history (nobody who has missed more than three games has ever won MVP). But Brady, ready for a full 16 games, is the obvious favorite going into this season according to Bet365 via OddsShark.com and Bova…

        Chris Berman speaks publicly about wife's death for first time

        Chris Berman. (Getty Images) Six weeks ago, Kathy Berman, wife of longtime ESPN broadcaster Chris Berman, died in a two-car accident. Since then, Berman, now in a reduced role at ESPN, has struggled with her loss both publicly and privately. As he prepared to play in a pro-am in advance of the Travelers Championship in Connecticut, Berman spoke with the Hartford Courant about his wife. “She made her own footprint in a quieter, understated way in the education channels,” said Berman, once the voice of the NFL on ESPN and now working in a reduced on-camera role. “The literacy volunteers, t…

      • Tom Brady throws down with a sumo wrestler, and it doesn't go well

        Tom Brady throws down with a sumo wrestler, and it doesn't go well

        Tom Brady can do so many things, but one thing he can’t do is push back a sumo wrestler that outweighs him by a good 100 pounds: @tombrady always fighting for that extra yard. ???????? #TBAsiaTour #IWILL A post shared by Under Armour (@underarmour) on Jun 22, 2017 at 6:01am PDT On a recent trip to Tokyo, Brady, in connection with Under Armour, took on a sumo wrestler, who did what the AFC East hasn’t been able to do since 2001: shut down Brady thoroughly, completely, and definitively. Brady did take on his boy, and this presumably went a little better for Tom: Brady vs Brady…
