Data Points: These QBs take a consistent beating

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.

Martz makes it hurt to be Cutler

Poor Jay Cutler. The guy has been pummeled during his time with the Bears thanks to Mike Martz’s pass-happy offense and his reluctance to scale back.

First and 10: High drama on both coasts

Relive two of Sunday’s most dramatic games as they happened, with NFL Replay Tuesday night on NFL Network.

Tarvaris Jackson gets some help up front

Seahawks signal-caller Tarvaris Jackson, playing behind the NFL’s youngest offensive line, was sacked a league-leading five times in Sunday’s loss to the 49ers.

Bears better beyond Cutler

Jay Cutler certainly did his part in contributing to the Bears’ impressive Week 1 victory over the Falcons, but there was so much more.

Data Points: Martz airing it out less

It’s 27 days until the start of the 2011 NFL season. And 27 was the average pass attempts per game last season for Bears QB Jay Cutler. Not only was that a career low for Cutler, but it’s the lowest such number for a starting QB under passing guru Mike Martz, Chicago’s offensive coordinator.

First and 10: New faces visit old places

Steve Smith has left New York for greener pastures — Eagles green, that is. Smith’s signing means Giants-Eagles will join other NFL contests that feature high-profile homecomings this season, including Shaun Ellis lining up against the New York Jets in a Patriots uniform, and Pats DE Albert Haynesworth getting a crack at his old coach Mike Shanahan when New England visits Washington on Dec. 11. We asked our panel of experts which 2011 “revenge game” they’re looking forward to most in the latest Instant Debate. Look for that later today on

Market forming for Broncos’ Orton

The Broncos are willing to deal starting QB Kyle Orton, league and team sources said, and are spending Tuesday assessing that market. The Vikings, Cardinals and Dolphins are among the teams expected to engage in trade talks with the Broncos.

First and 10: Ben says ‘I do,’ Jay says ‘I don’t’

Sure, the lockout is set to officially end Monday, but we know what you really want to know about: Which NFL quarterback just got married and which one just broke off his engagement?

Three and out: Ryan Grant expects to start

Ryan Grant expects to be the Packers’ No. 1 running back this season, but the emergence of James Starks has damaged his fantasy appeal.

Brandt: 49ers will win the NFC West senior analyst Gil Brandt is usually focused on personnel, but his Tuesday chat this week for some reason ended up focusing on predictions for 2011 division winners – and some of the picks may be surprising.

Three and out: Jets interested in Moss

Randy Moss and Terrell Owens might be a little long in the tooth, but will they still have fantasy value once the lockout ends?

Owens would help fill Bears’ most glaring weakness

In fairness to Jay Cutler, he needs in Chicago what he had in Denver, a true No. 1 receiver.

Data Points: Panthers quickly plug in draft picks

Yesterday we looked at how the Patriots compared with their AFC brethren at successfully drafting starters. You’ll never guess which NFC team has the best track record in turning draft picks into starters.

Draft Countdown: Six days to Thursday

Six Days to Sunday. NFL Films did a documentary special in 1995, but as good as it was, it would be hard pressed to beat the drama and suspense of the six days leading up to the NFL Draft. If only we could be flies on the wall in various scouting departments around the league, where they have six late nights left to work on their draft boards.
