Robert Griffin III turning down Colts workout is much ado about nothing - Peter King - SI.com
Chuck, if I may speak for the fans down south, I don't think the problem is with the Saints being sanctioned significantly. I think the problem comes with the severity of the sanction. No coach in NFL history has ever been suspended for a year for violating league rules. Bill Belichick got zero games for Spygate, and Sean Payton gets 16 for the bounty scandal. It seems over the top to me. As I've written, I think eight games would have been fair.

"Anyone who they hire (as interim head coach), I think it's going to be weird," he said. "It’s going to be weird not having Sean Payton around, because he's such a forceful presence. He’s certainly the soul, the face of the franchise, along with Drew Brees. Just not having him there pushing all the buttons and motivating everybody is really weird.

Joe Flacco thinks he’s "the best" quarterback in football | ProFootballTalk
"I assume everybody thinks they’re a top-five quarterback," Flacco told WNST in Baltimore, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. "I mean, I think I’m the best. I don’t think I’m top five, I think I’m the best. I don’t think I’d be very successful at my job if I didn’t feel that way. I mean, C’mon? That’s not really too tough of a question. But that doesn’t mean that things are gonna work out that way. It just means that that’s the way it is, that’s the way I feel it is, and that’s the way I feel it should be."
