"The correct answer on Knowshon Moreno is "too soon to tell," and the team seems to believe he can live up to his draft status. But, it's fair to say the Broncos need more out of the 12th pick of the 2009 draft than what they got last season...This staff's impression of Hillis is more the guy who got stuffed at Philadelphia and less of the rookie who ran so powerfully down the stretch two years ago."

"Kyle Shanahan, the Skins’ new offensive coordinator, left the Houston Texans so he could work for his dad. Kyle roomed with Simms—who has thrown one NFL touchdown since 2006—when the two played college ball at Texas. They grew so close that Kyle had Simms’s initials tattooed on one of his ankles. And Simms had Shanahan’s." Ummm, really? Is this true?
