McNair’s at his best on the move and could spend more time in the shotgun than in the past. But he has played far too carefully in the passing game, for which the coaches were largely at fault. If they convince him it’s OK to take some chances, and if he improves at finding his first or second read a wide receiver instead of quickly dumping off to the tight end, the offense could be significantly improved.
The Falcons defense really took charge at key points. It looms as a huge obstacle between the Eagles and the NFC title game. Still, though the Rams mustered just 13 points, and threw for only 259 yards on a whopping 45 attempts, completing 24 of them, they ran for 115 yards (on just 16 carries, 7.2 yards per carry).

Thanks to the weather and new river management guidelines, more water is being stored than ever before. TMWA recently purchased the rights to all of Donner Lake’s storage, and can store 65% more water than they did last year.
Runner up: Steven Hauschka’s poorly executed squib kick to start over in Seattle’s Week 1 loss at St. Louis. Coach Pete Carroll got blamed for trying an onside kick, but that wasn’t the call. The Review: The Bears needed help at corner and they got a player in Fuller who was arguably the best CB in the draft. Ferguson seemed questionable in the second round, though the Bears did a nice job snagging Sutton 31 picks later. Carey was one of the nation’s leading rushers last season and at least one draft publication tabbed him as the best of the RBs.
