Aaron Rodgers’ season ended on Sunday with a broken collarbone at the hands of the Vikings. The Green Bay quarterback joins the ranks of many signal-callers whose season has ended or been interrupted due to injuries.
Think back six years ago. In 2011, the Tennessee Titans appeared to be a team on the rise after finishing 9-7 and seemingly finding a new identity in the post-Jeff Fisher era with first-year head coach Mike Munchak and then-rookie quarterback Jake Locker leading the way.
America’s favorite football soap opera the Seattle Seahawks (1-2) returns home to CenturyLink Field for a prime-time matchup against the Indianapolis Colts (1-2). This game before the season started was supposed to be a battle of two of the NFL’s top quarterbacks in Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck.
In another life, or alternate universe, perhaps the storyline would be different. Perhaps Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay, way back in 2012, tells his current head coach, Chuck Pagano, that his job is no longer his and that he’s being replaced by offensive coordinator and then-interim head coach Bruce Arians.
The Colts and Rams are stuck on the same notch of NFL mediocrity, just on different paths. The Rams, under the guidance of 31-year old, first-year head coach Sean McVay are trying to rebuild around second-year quarterback Jared Goff after a decade-plus of putridity.
As quarterback Andrew Luck mends from offseason shoulder surgery, his Indianapolis Colts have undergone sweeping changes in an effort to cure what has ailed a team that finished 8–8 and out of the playoffs the past two seasons — despite playing in the weak AFC South.
The AFC South is arguably the most wide-open division in the NFL right now. Houston and Tennessee tied for the division lead at 9-7 last season, with the Texans winning the tiebreaker and making the playoffs over the rising Titans.
Despite the NFL’s undisputed status as the most dominant professional sports league, it needs some improvement. A few lingering issues still require some resolution. In particular, scheduling, both during the regular season and postseason should be changed. I offer five proposals for changes and explanations for why they are essential.
