Dan Le Batard: Is NFL an accomplice to all this off-field violence?

Football has gotten too big and too strong and too violent, and maybe the collateral damage can’t be controlled or governed, not even by the most punitive commissioner in the history of sports, who this week was reduced to a public piñata. America’s favorite bloodsport continues to sell the nobility and strength of the human spirit while every limping week, as bodies pile up on the sidelines, we learn a little more about how the sport has outgrown the limits of the human body and the human brain.

Greg Cote’s passer rankings: Philip Rivers wins Week 2, Peyton Manning at top of season rankings

The Chargers’ Philip Rivers takes the Week 2 title while Bronco and defending champion Peyton Manning overtakes the season lead in the Miami Herald’s latest Passer Success System (PASS) quarterback rankings. The Dolphins’ Ryan Tannehill climbs six spots to 19th place. The Herald rankings use a simple formula unchanged since its inception in 1998, factoring accuracy, yardage, TD/interception ratio and team result. These are passer rankings and do not weigh a QB’s running ability. Most rating systems, including the NFL’s and ESPN’s, are complicated and percentile based, allowing players who miss half a season to still win a title. Our rankings are cumulative, placing a premium on passers who are consistently productive and avoid injury or benching. Watch for our Top 20 in this space every week:
