Peter King left out a key factor in his argument for why a 6,000-yard season is inevitable for a quarterback (The Joy of Six ... Thousand): rule changes. In recent years, the NFL competition committee has made changes that focus on elevating the offense by favoring both quarterbacks and receivers. Thanks to these new rules, big numbers are now the norm.

No Laughing Matter
Binge drinking is one of the most dangerous social behaviors among young adults. For Rob Gronkowski to shamelessly glorify it (The Last Happy Man), and for his father, Gordon, to explain away his son's immaturity as "good, clean-cut" fun, is reprehensible.
