- Ray Rice is one step closer to playing in the NFL, if any team will have him that is. The former Baltimore Ravens running back won his appeal and his suspension from the NFL has been overturned.
Rice is now allowed to return to the league immediately, and free to sign with any team. One team linked to Rice is the Indianapolis Colts, and if you go read the Twitter timeline of CBS NFL Insider Jason La Canfora he has put together some interesting thoughts as to why that might be the case.
Do you think a team will sign Rice to play for them this year?

- 1. Seattle is back. I've written several times here on Sportable about how Seattle isn't an elite team. While that was true for a two month stretch, it isn't any more. They've had consecutive dominant wins versus the best the NFC has to offer.2. The NFL hates us. There should have been some great games on Turkey Day, yet all three disappointed.3. Colin Kaepernick isn't capable of putting a team on his shoulders. The best quarterbacks can carry a team through rough waters. CK just isn't that guyDoes Kaepernick have what it takes to win a Super Bowl?

- 1. LeSean McCoy is just fine. Due to offensive line woes and indecisive running, McCoy struggled during the early part of the season. Now? Not so much.2. Dez Bryant needs to relax. Yelling at your QB on the sidelines for the umpteenth time isn't helping anything, Dez.3. At least once a year Dallas plays the most stereotypically Dallas game possible. Big stage? Check. Huge late season divisional showdown? Check. Complete letdown? Of course!What does Jerry Jones do to forget losses like these?

- 1. A healthy Calvin Johnson is a scary thing. Beat up for large swaths of the past two seasons, it is easy to forget how dominant Johnson is. Games like this are a stark reminder.2. Reggie Bush's value is overstated. Several times during the broadcast it was mentioned how important he is to the Lions. I think Theo Riddick makes him redundant.3. The Bears are broken. I don't know if coach Marc Trestman has lost his squad, but this is a team who continues to perform well short of their talent level.What is wrong with the Bears?

- The 2-9 New York Jets are going back to Geno Smith. The former starting Jets quarterback will now be the current starting quarterback, replacing Michael Vick, who had replaced Geno earlier in the year. Yeah, it's kind of a mess in New York.
Quick tale of the tape shows neither quarterback was very impressive this year [stats from PFR]:
Geno: 57.6 completion percentage, 1,459 yards, 7:10 TD to INT ratio
Vick: 52.9 completion percentage, 604 yards, 3:2 TD to INT ratio
Is going with Geno the right call?

- A late night report from ESPN NFL Insider Superstar Adam Schefter closed the door on Robert Griffin III's 2014 campaign. Schefter tweeted to a Facebook posting of his reporting RG3 would be benched for Colt McCoy, "per a team source." An official announcement will be made public on Wednesday.
RG3 has played in four full games under Jay Gruden's new system. He completed 68.11 % of his passes for 831 yards, two TDs, and three INTs. WAS lost all four games. Colt McCoy's lone start resulted in a 20-17 win over DAL.
Is benching RG3 the right move?

- 1. Nobody wants to win the NFC South. I don't know about you, but I'm rooting for the division winner to be 6-10.2. Everybody wants to win the AFC North. With four teams at seven wins, the North is still wide open. BAL has been the best team for a couple months and is my pick to win the division.3. Justin Forsett makes me look bad. As somebody who was high on Bernard Pierce, I certainly didn't see his season coming. With a fairly friendly schedule, Forsett should finish strong.What is worse than the NFC South?

- 1. The Jets need to fire everybody. I'd keep Eric Decker, Chris Ivory, and some guys from the trenches, but everybody else can go. This team is as bad as bad as it gets.2. Robert Woods is still only 22. A relative disappointment thus far, Woods had by far his best game as a pro. There are signs of life for Woods, who has a golden opportunity to shine as the number two opposite Sammy Watkins.3. Watkins is hurting. Hampered by a groin injury, he has been a bit quiet the last month.If the NFL drafted today, would you still take Watkins as the first WR?

- When it came to adding a wide receiver to your fantasy team, questions were raised in regards to Steve Smith of the Baltimore Ravens. How is he doing this season you might ask?The 5'9 wide receiver ranked 34th with a 72 DYAR [Defense-adjusted Yards Above Replacement heading into Monday. And now has 53 catches and 817 yards.Unfortunately, Smith Sr. has had only one great fantasy game since Week 4, when he went off against Carolina with 139 receiving yards and two TDs, and that was against Tampa Bay.Would you draft Steve Smith as a WR1 in 2015?
Definitely. He's a strong fantasy WR
Not as a WR1, a WR2 or WR3 maybe.
I would never draft him, period.Share this Story×Google+posted by: Jessica D KleinschmidtOpinion
- 1. Eli Manning could have a sneaky-good 2015. With the breakout of Odell Beckham Jr. and the return of Victor Cruz, Manning has a shot for a late-career surge.2. Tony Romo is so much better than he gets credit for. Despite being banged up, he is still managing to put in perhaps his best NFL season yet.3. Beckham Jr. has been outstanding in his very young NFL career, averaging nearly eight catches for 126 yards over his last four games.Where would you draft Beckham among rookie WRs if the draft were today?

- 1. Anquan Boldin is amazing. Old, slow, and not dynamic in any way, Boldin is still among the best football players in the NFL. The scary part is he is showing zero signs of slowing down.2. RG3 is only playing because of Daniel Snyder. At this point, Snyder is the only person in America who believes he is the best option for the Skins.3. Frank. Gore. Is. Cooked.Do you think Harbs would even notice if I got down on my hands and knees right in front of him and begged for Carlos Hyde to eat into Frank Gore's carries?
He'd be too busy yelling at at a ref
He'd be too busy tucking in his t-shirt

- 1. Miami is actually a really good football team. They've been showing signs for the last two months, but this game really drives the point home. If they make the playoffs, nobody will want to play them.2. Ryan Tannehill is a future QB1. His only real limitation at this point is deep accuracy.3. C.J. Anderson deserves to start. He is the most complete back Denver has.Assuming health all around, which Denver RB will start their first playoff game?
