And one statistic that really convinced me that Smith has turned the corner was his incredibly low rate of poor throws as scored by STATS last season. Just 10.5% of Smith's passes to open receivers were off the mark, a rate that put him in a tie for second-best in the league along with the Vikings' Brett Favre and just barely off the 10.3% pace of former Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner. The Saints' Drew Brees (11.1%), Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger (12.1%) and Colts' Peyton Manning (12.8%) rounded out the league's top performers. That's pretty good company.

NFL loses anti-trust suit

I'm sure Fooch could tell you more than I can about the implications of this ruling, but as far as I can tell this ruling opens the door for some competition as far as NFL apparel is concerned (among other things). Good news, as competition will likely drive down the prices.
