The NFL has landed in Hawaii to begin final preparations for what might be the last Pro Bowl game ever played. For those of us who work it, this is our baby, and we are pulling out all the stops to give the game its best possible chance to succeed. Two critical pieces that will help determine the decision whether to continue playing the All-Star game are ticket sales, and the performance of the athletes on the field. The latter is out of our hands, but we have good reason to hope. The players fought hard to keep this game — and keep it in Hawaii — during the last round of labor negotiations, and they are well aware that […]

In the newspaper world, the football coverage for Sunday’s paper is in the form of a notes package. In the internet world, we can do notes, too. I’ve been trying to come up with some kinda feature for Sunday on the blog, and I may tweak this going forward.
Do people do cartwheels when they’re happy? I don’t know if they really do. But if that happens, Redskins fans should do some. The reason why has nothing to do with drafting Robert Griffin III or anything else. Although… that’s clearly a good thing.
When Donovan McNabb isn’t pondering his own football future, he’s endorsing Tom Brady as the best quarterback. Ever.
Donovan McNabb wasn’t so great off the field for the Vikings this season, but it turns out he’s been pretty awesome off of it.

Ninety-four-year-old Ed Sabol became the oldest man ever inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame earlier this year. See how the founder of NFL Films changed the way we watch sports and earned the gratitude of generations of NFL stars when “A Football Life: Ed Sabol” premieres on NFL Network Thursday at 10 p.m. ET.

The Cincinnati Bengals’ trade of disgruntled quarterback Carson Palmer to the Oakland Raiders on Tuesday stands as one of the biggest draft-day deals in NFL history.
NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora is reporting that Christian Ponder will start for the Vikings, but what will it mean to your fantasy team? Let’s just say that it can’t get much worse. If you spent any time watching Donovan McNabb throwing bounce passes to his receivers, this should be looked at as a positive move.

The football trade deadline is just that, dead. There is little to no excitement. There is no intrigue. Teams out of the race don’t send picks to other teams for future consideration like in other sports like baseball. Here are some trades I would love to see happen.

The near-fight between 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and Lions coach Jim Schwartz was the talk of the NFL on Sunday, overshadowing San Francisco’s 25-19 victory over previously undefeated Detroit.
With a win against Dallas on Sunday, New England’s Tom Brady and Bill Belichick can tie Pro Football Hall of Famers Dan Marino and Don Shula of Miami for the most wins (116) by a quarterback-head coach duo in the Super Bowl era (since 1966).
When the Bears host the Vikings on Sunday night, Jay Cutler won’t be the only quarterback twitching. If it seems as if Cutler is sacked more consistently than any other QB in the league, you’re right. The Bears passer has been taken down at least once in 27 straight games, the longest active streak in the league. But Donovan McNabb isn’t far behind, having been sacked in 20 straight games.
