Every year, we are reminded how the NFL has become a passing league and if you don't have a franchise quarterback, you don't have a chance. Well, there is always a slim chance, but in recent years it has been the same names in the same game.With the passing boom of the 21st Century NFL, it feels as if defensive players appear to be at a slight disadvantage with all of the pass-happy rule changes. Could you picture guys like Dick "Night Train" Lane, or Ronnie Lott playing in today's NFL? They wouldn't stand a chance with the rule changes.It is a different game now than it used to be, and it will keep evolving as new research and data becomes available. It is a game where 5,000 yards passing in a season is possible. Not only is 5,000 yards now an attainable number, but multiple quarterbacks are hitting the once unreachable 5,000 yards.5,000 yards passing in perspectiveIt wasn't until a young quarterback from the University of Pittsburgh, Dan Marino, enter...

Drew Brees picked the wrong two weeks to have two of his worst games with the New Orleans Saints. And for those who can read between the lines, yes, using the word picks was definitely a pun intended.

ATLANTA -- Drew Brees' trip to Georgia began with the team bus getting egged and concluded with the rottenest performance of his illustrious career. The Atlanta Falcons snapped Brees' record 54-game streak with a touchdown pass, picking off the New Orleans quarterback five times in a 23-13 victory over the Saints on Thursday at the Georgia Dome.

Even Hall of Fame quarterbacks get the blues. Drew Brees was picked off five times in Atlanta's 23-13 win over New Orleans Thursday night. He joins a long list of Hall of Fame QBs with disastrous games on their resume.
Drew Brees and Matt Ryan are two of the top fantasy options at the quarterback position in week thirteen. The Saints struggle on the road and the Falcons excel at home which leads us to believe that the Saints may be throwing a little more thus leading to Brees being ranked ahead of Ryan this week in my rankings.

FOXBORO, Mass. — The Patriots have been a dominant road team for over a decade now. But while most teams tend to roll over when Tom Brady and the Patriots come to town, the annual trip to Miami continues to be daunting.
Over the course of the long-standing series, the Dolphins hold a staggering advantage when the Patriots take their talents to South Beach. The Patriots are just...
DAVIE, Fla. Its probably not a good idea to compare your rookie quarterback to Tom Brady the week your team plays New England.
Perhaps thats why Miami center Mike Pouncey played it coy on Wednesday when asked to expound upon having last month compared Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Patriots star.
I said that? Pouncey said before laughing. You sure? That a rookie reminded...
A.B. Former New England Patriot and current Ohio State assistant coach Mike Vrabel won big on Saturday. Not only did his team beat their arch rival Michigan convincingly, he also won a bet against two current NFL players.
Of course Vrabel was smart enough to pick two former Michigan players – one being former teammate and superstar quarterback Tom Brady. Both losers had to put...
Andrew Luck and the surprise Indianapolis Colts head into Motown to take on Matthew Stafford and his Lions today from Ford Field in a battle of former No. 1 picks which should boost some nice offensive numbers through the air.

From the onset of training camp, the New England Patriots offensive line has been a work in progress, a mix of experience and youth that led to a handful of questions.
There's still uncertainty surrounding who's playing which position each week, but there's little doubt remaining about the level of protection provided to the quarterback.
After surrendering 12 sacks...
