By ESPN.com staff
Intentional or not, the kick Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh gave to Texans quarterback Matt Schaub is still being talked about. Suh, following Thursday's Pro Bowl practice, said: "People kind of had their minds made up already. I would never want to kick someone in that area.”

There's so many great things that coach Arians taught us, coached us up on. I think Pep has some really great stuff that he knows and he coached. I think we're going to do whatever gives us the best chance to win, whether it is chunk the ball or the short stuff, we'll figure it out."
Colts.com writer Craig Kelley takes a look back at Chuck Pagano's first year and the expectations the head coach faces in 2013. "One year smarter, Pagano is leading the charge into Year 2. It is one he relishes. The resiliency he saw organization-wide is what he wishes for this year."
