How the NFL Stole March Madness — NFL coaches love to tell the same lame joke every spring when talking about the off-season: "What off-season?" they quip. Then it stopped being a joke.

The caption: "Ruthless Priorities."

Tablets: Too Complex for NFL's 'Old' Folks

The Dallas Cowboys’ Fatal Flaw — Here's a joke that NFL coaches love to tell: This year, we're going to run the ball. It's an annual gag, said at every season-opening news conference and then forgotten. Passing is at an all-time high in the league, and defenses have never been weaker.
