How the Rooney Rule succeeds ... and where it falls short — After interviewing Todd Bowles to become the Philadelphia Eagles' secondary coach in January 2012, Andy Reid went to his longtime trusted assistant coach, David Culley. "I've never interviewed anybody as good as that," Reid said. Reid gave Bowles the job and midway through the 2012 season promoted him to defensive coordinator.

What the #@$& is Chip Kelly doing? — Ten years ago, a little-known assistant coach from New Hampshire telephoned Oregon head coach Mike Bellotti with a request. Could he come watch Bellotti and offensive coordinator Gary Crowton install their spread offense during spring practice? "We'd been beg-borrow-and-stealing from everybody in the nation," Bellotti said.

Peyton Manning, all-time touchdown leader — Peyton Manning set the all-time regular-season passing touchdown mark Sunday, passing Brett Favre. Here is a comprehensive look at the numbers behind his accomplishment.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles remains a quarterback enigma — PHILADELPHIA -- It was the run-run-reach that derailed Nick Foles. One Mississippi. Option No. 1, covered. Two Mississippi. Pump fake to try to shake the defender, unsuccessful. Three Missis ... Bam! Sack, Chris Clemons. Strip, Chris Clemons. Fumble, Nick Foles. Recovery, Ryan Davis. Turnover. [+] Enlarge Not Nick Foles.

Shorter NFL offseason, restrictions hamper coaches — Commentary Coaches don't get enough time to teach, stunting young players' development Baltimore coach John Harbaugh hates the rules governing the offseason. So does Denver coach John Fox and Atlanta coach Mike Smith. They are not alone. Coaches hate that they can't have a meaningful, football-related conversation with players until mid-April, at the earliest.

Army veteran Alejandro Villanueva pursues NFL dream with Philadelphia Eagles after three tours in Afghanistan — It was near dusk in Kandahar Province when an Afghan schoolteacher snapped. The Taliban had previously accused him of being an informant for the American military, pulled his teeth out, bloodied his face and threatened to kill his family. He exacted revenge on Aug. 25, 2011.

Jenkins admits his tackling needs work — Malcolm Jenkins has heard the criticism. In 2012 playing for New Orleans, Jenkins was one of three safeties in the NFL to miss more than 20 tackles. Last season, the former first-round draft pick was one of nine safeties to miss more than 15. [+] Enlarge Jenkins gets it.

Double Coverage: Falcons at Saints — Getty Images Steven Jackson and Mark Ingram will try to bring more balance to two pass-heavy offenses. Sean Payton is back to right the wrongs of last season, when his New Orleans Saints went off the rails in his absence.

espnW -- Former Oakland Raiders exec Amy Trask good hire for CBS — It shouldn't matter beyond the headline. CBS hired former Oakland Raiders chief executive officer Amy Trask to be an analyst on its newly created, "That Other Pregame Show," set to air Sunday mornings on the CBS Sports Network. That should be that. But it is not.
