1 I think I understand the strident feelings on each side of the Tim Tebow argument. I saw a good chunk of the Senior Bowl last Saturday. Tebow (below) was noticeably slow in his mechanics and footwork. He showed he'll need a redshirt year in the NFL to get his game up to speed with the rest of the league. Although I don't argue with those who say he's got miles to go to be a good NFL player, I do argue with those who say it's impossible.

With the March 5 deadline for a new agreement looming, Roger Goodell is facing the reality of what everybody in the business has seen: There's been almost no progress of any sort on the key economic issues to a new contract.
3 I think this is what I'll remember most from the Kurt Warner press conference announcing his retirement: As he took stock of his career and looked around the room in Tempe, he said, "I've enjoyed being able to be me."
