Each week, Dan Hanzus sifts through the pro football landscape to bring you sublime subplots of NFL life. Some of it he loves. Some he does not. Other stuff, he can't quite decide. The ATL Buzz Report.
5. OT confusion
Two things that never cease to amaze us about NFL players: 1) They don't wear protective cups. 2) They don't know the rules in place for overtime. C'mon guys.
6. "Is Eli elite?"
Phil Simms questioned Manning again this week. WHY? In terms of annoyingly cliched questions, this is up there with, "Why doesn't MTV play videos anymore?"
7. Holliday from ridicule
Speaking of catatonic coaches, how would've Mike McCarthy reacted if officials caught Trindon Holliday's punt-return gaffe? One blink? Two blinks? Three!?!
8. Big Ben, big problem
I've had my fill of "Player X's injury can be life-threatening" headlines in 2012. Ben Roethlisberger should rest until he's healed...then rest some more.
