Mike Florio looks at news around the NFL, including quarterback-owner controversies involving Peyton Manning and the Colts and Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers and whether Chad Ochocinco will emerge as a Super Bowl hero.
BEST OF MAXIM
New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has been quiet this season - both on the field and, for the most part, toward the media as well.
After being inactive last week, the Boston Herald asked Ochocinco if he regrets talking his way out of Cincinnati to join New England.
"No, there's no bittersweetness," Ochocinco told the paper. "There's a competitive...
Whether he plays another down in the NFL or not, Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts is without a doubt a first ballot Hall of Famer. His impressive 399 touchdowns, 54,828 passing yards, four league MVP’s and 94.9 career passer rating makes him a shoe in. Given those stats it would be absurd to come out and say that the younger of the Manning brothers, Eli, is better...
Colts Authority reader matt_has wrote a piece that offers a different perspective regarding Peyton Manning's future with the Colts. This is another excellent piece we thought readers would enjoy on the front page.
Preface: I can see both sides of the Manning/Luck debate, but I expect Manning to be cut. With that expectation in mind, this is primarily a therapeutic release for...

Peyton Manning and Colts owner Jim Irsay insist they are just fine after a week filled with complaints and comments suggesting a rift had developed following one of the most miserable seasons in team history.
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay and quarterback Peyton Manning have talked and made up, at least publicly. After four days of exchanging comments through the media that made the Colts sound like a house of dysfunction, the team released a statement Friday to "dispel any misperception that there might be any hard feelings between us."
Chad Ochocinco's first season with the Patriots has been defined by a lack of production on the field. Just how has he coped with a year full of unfulfilled expectations? By seeking the support of two other "diva receivers."
Bruce Arians spent less than a week on the unemployment line before another NFL team came calling. Arians, the highly respected offensive coordinator for the Steelers since 2007, was let go when the Steelers reportedly let his contract expire Jan. 22. The Colts wasted little time in offering Arians a contract, which he agreed to, ESPN reports. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger...
Oh, to be a fly pattern on the wall when Ben Roethlisberger sits down with Steelers president Art Rooney II to discuss the future of the team's offense.
