Former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue plans to complete all hearings in the bounty probe by Dec. 4 and make a ruling shortly after. In a document obtained Wednesday by the Associated Press, Tagliabue directs the NFL to produce key witnesses in the New Orleans Saints cash-for-hits program, including former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and former defensive assistant Mike Cerullo. Four players initially were suspended, but those punishments were vacated. Commissioner Roger Goodell reissued the suspensions with some modifications, and when the players appealed again, Goodell appointed Tagliabue to oversee the new hearings.

ATLANTA - The Falcons had been waiting all season for a complete game. They finally got it. Matt Ryan threw three touchdown passes in less than three quarters of work, John Abraham had 3 1/2 sacks and the Falcons clinched a fourth straight winning season with a 41-14 rout of the Jacksonville Jaguars last night. "Hopefully, we can play like we did tonight for the next couple weeks," Ryan said. This one was over by halftime. Atlanta (9-5) led, 27-0, when the teams trotted to the locker room.

DAVID GARRARD lost his starting job the same way he got it: just days before the season opener and in stunning fashion. Jacksonville released Garrard yesterday, making a decision that will save the franchise $9 million this season. Whether it saves coach Jack Del Rio's job remains to be seen. Team owner Wayne Weaver has said the Jaguars need to make the playoffs for Del Rio to stick around for a 10th season. Del Rio had said in training camp and the preseason that Garrard would be the starter.

ATLANTA'S Matt Ryan was limited in practice yesterday after taking a pounding against the Eagles on Sunday, but he'll be ready to go when the Falcons take on NFC South rival Tampa Bay. Ryan was listed as having a knee injury. He would only say he feels about normal for the middle of the week after a physical game. "You're still a little sore, but I'll be good to go and ready to roll on Sunday," he said. The Falcons (1-1) need to do a better job protecting Ryan, who's already been sacked nine times and hit 17 more times.

The latest distraction for the Denver Broncos comes from all-pro linebacker Von Miller, who insisted on Monday he did nothing wrong in the face of reports he could miss four games for violating the NFL's drug policy. "I know I did nothing wrong. I'm sure this'll be resolved fairly," Miller tweeted, acknowledging he had seen the reports and adding he was disappointed the Broncos have to open training camp in Englewood, Colo., on Wednesday with this news hanging over them. ESPN first reported the pending discipline for Miller.

Week 16 was most notable for its upsets, from the screeching halt of Carolina's drive for perfection to the Patriots' bungled handling of the overtime coin toss. Somehow, the Ravens mustered their divisional-rival powers to ground Pittsburgh's passing attack while the Rams knocked the surging Seahawks offense off-stride for the first time since Week 10. And while the Cardinals' ninth consecutive victory wasn't a surprise, the way they humiliated the Packers' offense sure was. Each of these unexpected outcomes yielded disappointing fantasy results for many of the players who had propelled their owners to the championship round.

BELIEVE IT or not, Ed Snider does worry about more than shortside goals and the number of cheap shots Claude Giroux endures. The Flyers owner, a Washington, D.C., native, hates what some of the children in Philadelphia's toughest areas go through daily. "I grew up in a rough neighborhood and we had to use our fists," Snider said. "Kids today are facing guns. I can't imagine how frightened I would have been each day to go to school. It's horrible. I just wanted to do what I could and doing it through hockey is the most appealing thing to me. We talk about the hockey aspect of it, but these kids have to get good grades.

In the brutal world of the NFL, what Washington's DeAngelo Hall said on Wednesday is as routine as putting on aftershave. But a lot of folks are going to have trouble with a player who boasts openly that he's going out on Sunday to hurt an opponent. Hall said he hoped Tony Romo plays for Dallas on Monday night - so he can put a helmet hit on the quarterback's broken ribs. "Absolutely. I want to get a chance to put my helmet on whatever hurts," the cornerback said.

NEW YORK - Cam Newton's personal winning streak continued at the NFL draft Thursday night, but it was a difficult evening for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Goodell, introducing each first-round pick at what is supposed to be the league's marquee offseason event, was angrily booed for much of the night as fans at Radio City Music Hall vented their frustration with the NFL's ongoing lockout. From the start of the event fans blasted Goodell with chants of "We want football!"

ONCE UPON a time in the NFL, when patience hadn't yet become a dirty word and coaches usually could count on being given at least three years before needing to update their resumes, the preferred method for developing a quarterback was slow-roasting rather than two minutes in a microwave. Back then, when you drafted a quarterback, unless he was one of those rare pass-throwing, ready-for-prime-time prodigies, you usually gave him a baseball cap and clipboard and had him watch and learn for a year or two before you put him in the line of regular-season fire.

SO MANY mediocre quarterbacks will be starting this week, Roger Goodell ought to change the name of his league to the MFL. Injuries and ineffectiveness have spread throughout the league like a plague of Drew Rosenhauses. Throw in the fact that Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning and Drew Brees are on bye, and many fantasy players - especially those in two-quarterback leagues - are in a real bind. Let's take a look at the 28 guys expected to start this week. QB1s The obvious top starters: 1. Tom Brady (vs. Buffalo)

This is a post by Les Bowen on the Daily News' Eagles blog Eagletarian. THE TEAM most of us considered the main suitor for Nick Foles went in another direction Wednesday. Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs agreed in principle to a trade with the 49ers for quarterback Alex Smith, FoxSports.com reported. The 49ers will get Kansas City's second-round selection this April, 34th overall, and a conditional 2014 pick. The trade can't be official until free agency starts March 12. This development could mean the Eagles were not just posturing, and really do want to hold onto Foles, at least until Reid's successor, Chip Kelly, gets a look at last year's rookie QB on the practice field.

THE LOCKERS of the running backs who might take Willis McGahee's spot in the Broncos lineup are conveniently lined up, four in a row. Lance Ball. Knowshon Moreno. Jeremiah Johnson. Ronnie Hillman. Barring an unlikely free-agent signing, some combination of those four will be asked to fill in for the foreseeable future for Denver's leading rusher, McGahee, who tore a ligament in his right knee and will be out for what's expected to be a 6-to-8-week stint. Coach John Fox said McGahee's injury, suffered in the second quarter of Denver's 30-23 victory over San Diego on Sunday, will not require surgery and that the Broncos had no immediate plans to put the 10th-year veteran on injured reserve.

A WISE MAN once said a man's got to have a code. Of course, that man also had a double-barreled shotgun, which always makes it easier to abide by one's code. Me? All I had was a putrid Jaguars team getting one point against the Bengals and a chorus of oddsmakers begging me to bet the road favorite. So I took the Jaguars, thereby violating the one principle that guides my life, which is to never bet on a quarterback as ill-suited for the professional game as Blaine Gabbert was, is and always will be. The Bengals rolled, Slappy McHappyfeet played check-down Charlie, and, somewhere in the Great Vacant in the Sky, Omar Little shook his head.

When it comes to Kevin Kolb, there are two possibilities. He is the luckiest unlucky guy in the NFL, or he is the unluckiest lucky guy in all of football. Take your pick. It is hard to remember, or even imagine, a player enjoying such spectacularly good fortune while enduring so many unfortunate bad breaks. From the time the Eagles took Kolb in the second round of the 2007 draft, his career has been defined much more by goings-on in front offices and meeting rooms than on the field.

The New York Jets will face the Pittsburgh Steelers' speedy receivers without Darrelle Revis. The all-pro cornerback was ruled out Friday for the team's game at Pittsburgh on Sunday with a concussion that left Revis "in a fog" after the injury occurred in the season opener against Buffalo. Coach Rex Ryan said Revis was cleared for noncontact practice for the first time Friday, but will not travel to Pittsburgh with the team Saturday. "We followed NFL protocol this week," Ryan said, "and we'll always follow NFL protocol when it comes to concussions, but Darrelle is ruled out for the game.
