Move over, RG3. Make room for another rookie quarterback sensation . . .
That's Seattle's Russell Wilson, who happens to wear No. 3 and has helped invigorate the Seahawks, just as Robert Griffin III has pumped life into the Washington Redskins....

Has Phil Emery shown his hand at all regarding his feelings for Lovie Smith? @Joey FAV, from Twitter
Yes, he has shown his hand repeatedly. Emery has a lot of respect for Smith. And he wants Smith to remain as head coach of the Bears as long as Smith...

Here's just one of a thousand reasons to love the Northern Illinois Huskies:
Growing up, all of us boys who were "big boned" had to get our clothes from the "Husky" collection. Who did they think they were kidding? The only people that really thought we...

Joe Flacco basically blew off the question, and it was hard to blame him.
The day after he led the Ravens to the AFC championship with a terrific second-half performance against the New England Patriots, the whole paradigm had shifted. The day after...

SAN FRANCISCO – Sometimes, when it ends like Sunday, everyone laments one play that could have changed the day in the manner Ryan Tannehill was about a missed touchdown to Davone Bess.

1. Patriots (3 last week): Step into Bill Belichick's web, Colin Kaepernick.
2. Broncos (2): They need to beat the Ravens to keep their hopes alive for a first round playoff bye.
3. Packers (7): Mike McCarthy believes this team can be better than...

The NFL is a business.
Easy to say. Hard to swallow.
Nowhere was that more evident this week than in San Francisco, where Alex Smith officially lost his starting quarterback job to Colin Kaepernick, who had filled in for him after Smith suffered a...

You can think what you want about San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh's quarterback decisions, weigh in however you feel about his starting a young Colin Kaepernick over the experienced Alex Smith against the Dolphins.
You can think a starting quarterback...

Some people say the worst thing you can call a football player is soft.
The Bears were soft against San Francisco.
Soft and unprepared. Soft and unresponsive. Soft and stupid. They met the 49ers’ toughness with all manner of embarrassing...

The 49ers defeated the Bears every way a team can be beaten Monday night — power, speed and thought.
Almost no one on the team did his job well enough for the Bears to win.
Three aspects of the 49ers' victory stood out upon closer inspection....

When the ribbon was cut on this NFL season in early September, nobody gave a second thought to the Bears' Week 12 assignment, Leslie Frazier's Vikings.
No, you don't dismiss any divisional opponent, especially one that possesses the threat of Adrian...

Where am I, and why are there turkey feathers in my mouth?
Oh, that's right. It was Thanksgiving, and I wasn't willing to wait for the oven to get hot. But now that the gorging is over and I've come to my senses (so to speak), here are a few...
