Around SB Nation: What Fans Of Other NFL Teams Are Talking About

The Cowboys create their own all-22 film of each practice.
The Cowboys create their own all-22 film of each practice.

Here are the latest headlines from the 31 other SBNation NFL blogs on a slow news day. For your convenience, the headlines are sorted by division, starting with our friends from the NFC East:

NFC East

Eagles - Everyone Will Soon Be An Expert Thanks To NFL Rewind - Bleeding Green Nation
If you can't tell man from zone coverage, all-22 film is not going to make you into an expert either, but it is a heaven-send for every single one of our SB Nation blogs.

Giants - Will Beatty Injury Update: Kevin Gilbride Voices Concern - Big Blue View
If the Giants lose Beatty, that would be the fourth starter lost in the last two years.

Redskins - Keys to the Tailgate: The Food - Hogs Haven
A welcome offseason topic with immediate application potential for your next BBQ.

NFC North

Vikings - If Luck Is A Lady, She Was Not Dressed In Purple In 2011 - Daily Norseman
This post uses one of my posts from February to show why the Vikings were one of the NFL's unluckiest teams in 2011.

Packers - "Quality Over Quantity": Raji's Snap Count - Acme Packing Company
Much like some Cowboys fans with Jay Ratliff, Packers fans would like to the ease the workload on nose tackle B.J. Raji, hoping he'll play better when he plays less.

Bears - Plumbing the NFC North Depths: Linebackers - Windy City Gridiron
The article compares linebacking units within the NFC North and naturally sees the Bears on top. Much more interesting: I don't think I've ever heard the names of anybody on the Lions or Vikings linebacking units.

Lions - Martin Mayhew Says Riley Reiff 'Could Probably Play Guard If He Needed To' - Pride Of Detroit
Yeah, I had to pick a story and I didn't want to pick a link dump, so this is it. In my experience, when you hear talk about moving a first-round tackle to a guard spot, something is not right.

NFC South

Buccaneers - Why do you root for whom you root? - Bucs Nation
Sander from Bucs Nation ponders the nature of fandom. Like me, Sander is not a US national. Unlike me, he is from Holland and naturally supports the Dutch National Soccer team. Did I mention that Germany beat Holland 2-1 at the Euro championships?

Falcons - Will Michael Turner's Carry Percentage Drop Significantly? - The Falcoholic
When you read an article about a 30-year old starting running back, you appreciate Felix Jones (25) and DeMarco Murray (24) just a little bit more than you did before.

Panthers - Will Newton Ever Satisfy His Biggest Critic? - Cat Scratch Reader
Turns out Newton is his own biggest critic. Yeah, right.

Saints - NFL's "Evidence" in Bounty Scandal Amounts to Less Than 200 Pages - Canal Street Chronicles
Get over it already.

NFC West

49ers - Should We Be Concerned About Rookie Wide Receiver A.J. Jenkins? - Niners Nation
"A.J. Jenkins: The Niners first round pick looked like one of the worst wide receivers on the field most of minicamp."

I could not suppress a broad smile.

Cardinals - Patrick Peterson Considered One Of League's Most Versatile Players - Revenge of the Birds
Peterson was a special teams standout last year. As a corner, not so much. It'll be an interesting season for Peterson.

Rams - Dave McGinnis Looms Large For The St. Louis Rams - Turf Show Times
McGinnis is the guy who'll be stepping in as DC instead of the indefinitely suspended Greg Williams.

Seahawks - Thoughts On Chris Clemons' Mini-Camp Holdout & Contract Negotiations - Field Gulls
The soon-to-be 31-year old former Eagle is holding out for a contract extension.

AFC East

Bills - What Has Buffalo Bills GM Buddy Nix Built Through The Draft? - Buffalo Rumblings
This is an interesting question. Seven successive years of drafting in the top 12 must pay off at some point, no? The Bills have not had a winning record since 2004, but that may change this year.

Dolphins - Why You May Want to Hold Off On Your Chad Ochocinco Jersey Order For a Minute - The Phinsider
A conundrum: Johnson or Ochocinco on the jersey?

Jets - Biography of a Jet: Marcus Dixon - Gang Green Nation
Interesting feature on Marcus Dixon, a former Cowboy.

Patriots - Which Fullback Should The Pats Keep? - Pats Pulpit
Ex-Cowboys currently on the Patriots roster: FB Tony Fiammetta, WR Jesse Holley, ILB Bobby Carpenter.

AFC North

Bengals - Rey Maualuga Admits To Playing "Wrong Football" Last Season - Cincy Jungle
We know all about Right Kind of Guys and Wrong Kind of Guys here in Dallas, but we haven't really heard about "wrong football" that much. They know all about it in Cincy. And have known for years.

Browns - Latest on Colt McCoy and the Browns, 'trading block' rumor - Dawgs By Nature
Quarterback controversies always get ugly after a while. This one's been simmering for a while now, and when it's over, there aren't going to be a lot of winners left.

Ravens - Which NFL Team has the Highest Amount of Arrests Since 2000? - Baltimore Beat Down
Everybody knows that the Ravens roster is filled with "thugs" and "criminals". Ravens fans valiantly try to dispute this by showing that they've only had 16 players arrested since 2000. That's certainly less than the Vikings (39) or Bengals (37), but still more than 12 other teams in the NFL.

Steelers - Steelers QB Terry Bradshaw: NFL is 'Forced to Care Because It's Politically Correct To Care' - Behind the Steel Curtain
The article starts with this sentence: "When Steelers QB Terry Bradshaw talks, people listen."

I didn't read the rest.

AFC South

Colts - Happy Father's Day From Stampede Blue - Stampede Blue
I tried to find a story without Andrew Luck in the headline. I am pleased to report that against some very long odds, I was successful: This one only has a picture of Luck.

Jaguars - Justin Blackmon DUI: Video Of Jaguars WR Arrest Surfaces - Big Cat Country
No jokes about a topic as serious as this. Although I have to say it is a good thing that Blackmon didn't wear saggy pants or he would have been in real trouble.

Texans - Wade Phillips Passed on Interview With Tampa Bay Because Bob McNair Gave Him A Raise? - Battle Red Blog
Those guys in Houston love themselves some Wade Phillips. We liked him too. In 2007, his first year.

Titans - Beating A Dead Horse: Would You Take Albert Haynesworth Back? - Music City Miracles
The Cowboys have T.O., the Titans have fat Albert as neverending storylines. We feel your pain, guys.

AFC West

Broncos - Some Clarification is in Order: Correlation, Causation and Football - Mile High Report
A look at the relation between causation and correlation in football and why the two are so often confused.

Chargers - Why is the Chargers confidence poll always so low and looks like it's decreasing? - Bolts From The Blue
This is from their fanpost section, and I'd guess that the answer probably has to do with - wait for it - the low level of fan confidence.

Raiders - Raiders continue to convert Red and Gold to Silver and Black - Silver And Black Pride
The Raiders have been signing some personnel from their cross-bay rivals.

Chiefs - Checking In On Our Old Friend Brandon Carr - Arrowhead Pride
Still a lot of love for Carr in Kansas City. Not much of an article, but the comments are worth reading through.
