St. Louis Rams Are Clueless When It Comes To Tavon Austin

Repeated success in multiple fantasy leagues and skipping the "Ask Madden" option to virtual excellence often leads one to believe that they know more about x's and o's than the coaches themselves.

San Diego conjures lots of memories for Seahawks QB Wilson

As the Seahawks get set to play their first real game in San Diego since 2002 - the year they returned to the NFC West after 25 years in the AFC West with the Chargers - it's almost like homecoming weekend for Russell Wilson , too. Seattle's third-year quarterback is heading back to the place where his dad flirted with an NFL career, and he also will be facing the quarterback who set the standard at North Carolina State a few years before Wilson shot to stardom there.
