One day after Peyton Manning drew two penalties for illegal snaps at Green Bay, Indianapolis Colts Coach Jim Caldwell pleaded with N.F.L. officials on Friday to re-evaluate a rule change that forces players to wait for the umpire to get into his new position before the ball can be put in play. Peyton Manning drew two penalties for illegal snaps during a preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. The league wasted no time in responding to the complaints. "The movement of the umpire to the offensive backfield will happen in the regular season," the league spokesman Michael Signora said in a statement. "We continue to analyze and review the impact of the change in the preseason, and we may announce some adjustments to the mechanics of the position prior to Week 1."

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas(notes) – Thomas may be an even better under-the-radar back from an efficiency perspective. The Saints are always highly-rated as a passing team, and justifiably so. But one of the keys to their Super Bowl run last season was a rushing attack that stepped up time after time on the rare occasions that Drew Brees(notes) was misfiring. You'll remember his amazing play in the NFC championship game, where he fumbled and recovered his own fumble while banging for the end zone. He also ranked first overall in DVOA among running backs, and this might finally be his feature back year.

Exhibitionist: Christopher Ivory, preseason film star - Roto Arcade - Fantasy - Yahoo! Sports

To be perfectly honest, Christopher Ivory(notes) was just a name on a depth chart to me prior to Friday's preseason game between the Saints and Chargers. And then he did this. Click that link. Watch the tape. That's unbelievable. Here, I'll link it again, just to give you a second chance. You will not see a better individual play made by any skill player this preseason. On that 76-yard touchdown reception, Ivory either side-stepped, stiff-armed, outran or bulldozed every member of the San Diego defense.

And people think Shanahan is good at finding UDFA RBs.... Chris "Overdrivory" shows us every tool in the RB Toolbox - Combining power, speed, balance, burst, elusiveness and one helluva stiff-arm in a 76-yard "Why I should be in that 53" TD run. (Yes - I know that technically it was a reception) Tell me you don't see some similarity here.
