    •   Spread style offenses have changed the NFL for the last 30 years. If you want to historically date this, then the Oilers Run-N-Shoot and Buffalo's K-Gun offenses were the first that really legitimatized a spread offense into the NFL running multiple wide receiver sets and various shotgun plays. The West Coast Offense was still in it's primitive state back then.    The spread style offenses are the reason why the Bears style 4-6 defense became completely obsolete in just a matter of a few years, and quite frankly the reason they never won another Super Bowl. The 4-6 looks unbeatable against offenses running Smashmouth and other run heavy style offenses without a lot of passing. When you run the 4-6 up against a spread style offense, or even just something with good blocking and deep ball play (see 1985 Dan Marino carving it up, or any year in the playoffs where the Bears had to face Washington or San Fran who did the same thing), it's going to get exposed every single time.    I don't think it has anything to do with bad o-line play. In that time of span, we've seen several teams manage to run pass happy spread style offenses and have terrific o-line play.    The teams mentioned in the first post don't really put a lot of work into offensive line play. There are still some teams who make O-line play a top priority and invest heavily into it. Teams like Atlanta, Dallas and New Orleans focus on o-line play. 
    • Roger VanDerSnick sounds like the made up name of a villain from the Muppets.   "But, Mr VanDerSnick, please don't close down Muppet Theatre, we have a show to put on tonight!" Kermit the Frog pleads to the imperious banker.
    • I haven`t watched any of the pre-game shows in years. Skirts have become more important than putting the football players behind the microphone. Sad!
    • OT without a doubt is now the Colts biggest need. I`ve said before and will say it again, AC is a RT playing LT. He has regressed each of the past two seasons as well. 
    • I hate to see the Colt resign Mewhort based on potential, which translates to more money. He`s been hurt about as much as he`s played. I`m sure there are varying opinions on Mewhort, but the Colts seem to struggle with injuries and he has a history of it. I would not overpay for him nor think the Colts should.
