    It was a polarizing moment, maybe the most polarizing moment of the NFL season (not involving Richie Incognito talking about running a train on one of Jonathan Martin's female relatives), but I loved Richard Sherman's promo that he cut on Michael Crabtree after the NFC Title Game in Seattle.

    Richie Incognito Smashes Up His Own Ferrari With a Baseball Bat

    Zapruder Analysis Of Richie Incognito's Interview With FOX's Jay Glazer

    It's been quite a year for the NFL, and I'm not talking about on the field.
