Everyone agrees that Adrian Peterson is the top pick. But so far, no one agrees on who should go second.

In today’s Three and Out: Maurice Jones-Drew isn’t sure when he’ll be back; EJ Manuel is one step closer to starting and will the Saints have a RB rotation?

Much like Clark Griswald in the holiday classic, Christmas Vacation, many NFL players and coaches are in need of a few relaxing days all to themselves (and that Christmas bonus!). Whether from a disappointing season, injury, poor performance or single-handedly carrying their team through the first 15 weeks, these players and coaches could use a little respite. And probably a large glass of egg nog.

For the majority of the season, I have admonished fantasy enthusiasts for having too many good quarterbacks. Trade one! I often decried. They can’t score fantasy points for you from the bench.
The expression I search for right now is “hoist on my own petard.”
Of Brees’ 37 pass attempts, 11 were playaction, accounting for 30% of their passing plays. Brees completed 10 of those 11 for 171 yards and 2 TDs.
The New Orleans Saints will be without tight end Jimmy Graham on Sunday, but what does it mean for the rest of your Saints’ players?

There is special place in sports hell where real-life and fantasy disappointment run concurrently. Please allow me to share one of these stories.
Earlier today, you saw the first installment of my interview with Saints QB Drew Brees, who discussed dealing with unforeseen losses. As part of his venture with Xbox 360, I spoke with Brees about other topics as well. One thing I really enjoyed was getting his take on the younger brand of QBs in the league. I asked him an open-ended query about quarterback play, and where Brees took it was to discuss the young’ns. Seems Brees is pretty impressed with several QBs around the league. But first, when I mentioned his struggles, and that of Cam Newton, and that of Aaron Rodgers, he brought up a good point. “First of all, it’s hard to win in this league,” Brees told […]
Saints QB Drew Brees explains how dealing with losses means taking “things opposite of human nature”
Saints QB Drew Brees made the media rounds yesterday, beginning with our crew on NFL AM. There, they discussed with him some bounty issues, Terry Bradshaw’s view on his record, and his endorsement deal with Xbox. Well, I was slated to talk with him later in the day about some other stuff… along with that Xbox-related program called the 60 Million Minutes Challenge, which encourages kids to be active for 60 minutes each day. So what did we discuss? Losing. In his 12th season, Brees only has two losing seasons. Yet this year, following a holdout and a tumultuous offseason for obvious reasons, the coach-less Saints are 1-4. How does Brees deal with it? Has it gotten easier? What has it been […]
Drew Brees denounced Commissioner Roger Goodell’s reaffirmation of the bounty punishments, but isn’t making excuses for the New Orleans Saints’ 1-4 start.

This was the kind of week where why wouldn’t Chris Johnson have his best game of the season against the Houston Texans. And congratulations to the 65 percent of you who still started Johnson this week, kudos to you.

So let me see if I have this straight, Mike Shanahan said Alfred Morris was going to start for his team and then he went out and had the most carries of the weekend? Surprisingly, that’s not the biggest Washington Redskins’ story of the weekend.
