What I’m working on for NFL Total Access tonight

We will continue to follow the slaying of former star QB Steve McNair on NFL Total Access (7 p.m. here in the East), and I also will look at some other issues around the league.

There’s a good chance we will end up discussing the following:

  • A year ago, the Colts announced Jim Caldwell as the successor to then-coach Tony Dungy, and at some point the team’s architect, Bill Polian, will move on as well. Who do many NFL executives expect to eventually be named Polian’s successor?
  • The Patriots rose to dominance using a lot of Cover-4 and Cover-5 techniques, deploying linebackers and safeties in coverage and often having cornerbacks play quarters of the field. What new wrinkle were they working on at length during OTAs?
  • One NFL team has devised a highly unusual training-camp policy for veterans, catching the players by surprise, but it might become more of the norm over time. We’ll explain the possible pros and cons.
  • And, in my quest to quench the never-ending desire for potential fantasy football nuggets, we’ll look at the evolving role of RB Felix Jones in the Cowboys’ offense.

As always, I want to know what you guys are interested in. Shoot me a line on Twitter (jasonlacanfora), catch me here at the blog or e-mail me at lacanforanfl@yahoo.com. I’m here for you.
