By Tom Taft Although it will come as a surprise to many, the NFL is a socialist institution. As the country prepares to watch Super Bowl 50, are there any lessons to be learned from its success? The NFL is essentially run by a central government that has the final word on everything. It's a government determined to compete effectively to maximize its share of available entertainment and advertising dollars, even at the expense of the performance of a given person or group within the system.

Mark Sanchez has played in 70 regular-season and postseason games, but never one at Lambeau Field. The Eagles quarterback said Wednesday that the Green Bay Packers' famed stadium is a "bucket list" place to play. The problem for Sanchez and the Eagles leading up to Sunday's game in Green Bay is that it has not been a fun place for opponents to visit this season. The Packers have averaged 41.5 points per game in their four home games, nearly 20 points better than their average on the road.

THE EAGLES will honor a great player from their past at each home game this season, allowing the player to serve as honorary captain. For Sunday's home opener against the Giants, the inaugural honor goes to linebacker Seth Joyner, a three-time Pro Bowler (twice with the Eagles, in 1991 and 1993). The captain will be involved in both pregame and halftime activities, with highlights from his playing days on the giant screens. Joyner will raise the Eagles flag during the pregame ceremony (approximately, 12:45)

Almost two weeks after they put away the pads, the St. Louis Rams picked up their third win of a dismal season. They prevailed in a high-stakes competition with the Miami Dolphins and landed Jeff Fisher for their vacant head coaching job. The team said Friday it was finalizing a deal to hire the veteran coach who sat out the 2011 season after 17 years in Tennessee. His long stint there included a Super Bowl matchup against the Rams in 2000 in which Tennessee fell 1 yard shy of forcing overtime in a 23-16 loss.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - For Eli Manning and the New York Giants, Lambeau Field has become a familiar launching pad. After beating the Green Bay Packers at home for the second time in four years, they only hope this trip ends the same way - at the Super Bowl. Manning threw for three touchdowns and the Giants shocked the Packers, 37-20, in an NFC divisional playoff game on Sunday. Manning threw for 330 yards, sending the Giants to San Francisco for the NFC championship game next Sunday night.

THE GREEN BAY Packers have raised $67 million the last 6 weeks by selling shares of stock for $250 apiece. When the Packers decided to upgrade Lambeau Field - a $143 million effort to add 6,700 additional seats, high-definition video screens and a new entrance by next year - they resolved not to ask for a single taxpayer dime. Instead, they reverted back to the same strategy that has helped keep the Packers afloat several times in team history - a stock sale. The latest offering wrapped up Wednesday.

More than 24 hours before the start of last night's Eagles-Packers game, a fairly large crowd - at least by local standards - gathered at Lambeau Field to watch the Goodyear Blimp practice its maneuvers. In other cities, this might be construed as poorly planned leisure time, but in Green Bay it was just another act of devotion. Once the game finally began, hours after the first charcoal grill had been torched in the parking lot, Packers fans watched another ship apparently full of hot air that seems to be drifting aimlessly.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Nick Foles will continue deferring to Chip Kelly when the subject of the Eagles' quarterback competition arises, because that's the second-year quarterback's nature. His most convincing testimony comes before Kelly's eyes. Foles didn't throw seven touchdowns in the Eagles' 27-13 win over the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday, but Foles did enough to bring the Eagles back to .500 and continued offering evidence that he should be the team's quarterback.

LAMBEAU FIELD is where the overhaul began, isn't it? Technically, the Eagles still had six games left, and a 7-3 record, and a great chance at the playoffs. But consider the words Chip Kelly used last month when he offered his opinion on where the Eagles were at the end of last season. Not close. Where did they look less close than ever? Lambeau Field. After each of the Eagles' other five losses, you could envision a scenario in which a few shrewd tweaks would result in a different outcome.

FIRST TIM TEBOW lost on Saturday night, then the New York Giants won on Sunday night. In Philadelphia, there really is no God. The worst winner of the NFC East in memory, the Giants are nonetheless ticketed for the NFC Championship Game Sunday at San Francisco after a 37-20 upset of the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. That nobody saw it coming goes without saying. The hardest part is figuring out what it means. With that, on to the questions. By the transitive property of sports - which, even though it doesn't work like the transitive property of mathematics, doesn't prevent it from being invoked with alacrity - doesn't this mean that the Eagles could just as easily have found themselves in the NFC Championship Game if they had managed one more win along the way?

GREEN BAY - Understatement is kind of a Chip Kelly thing, and the guys who end up being Chip's guys - a group that certainly would seem to include Sam Bradford - quickly adopt that mode, if they didn't come preprogrammed with it. But Bradford, who waited so long to unfurl what he unfurled Saturday night at Lambeau Field, couldn't fully contain himself, after completing 10 of 10 passes for 121 yards and three touchdowns in three series of...

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Reporters talking to Kiko Alonso this week about his Eagles debut, set for tonight's preseason game at Lambeau Field, wanted to get a sense of how Alonso felt about having been away from live action so long; he tore his left ACL getting ready for training camp in 2014, and hasn't played since the final game of the Buffalo Bills' 2013 season. "Long time," Alonso agreed, nodding. "Long time. " Alonso lapsed into silence. The reporters awaited further illumination.

EAGLES RADIO VOICE Merrill Reese was disappointed when he entered the NovaCare media room yesterday and heard that Aaron Rodgers isn't expected to play when the Eagles visit Green Bay tomorrow night. Someone observed that Rodgers, 31, a two-time NFL MVP, probably doesn't need to play the Eagles in the preseason to get ready to lead the Packers into the games that count. "Yes, but I need him to play!" Reese joked. Like many fans and media observers, Reese had been looking forward to seeing how the Eagles' much-discussed defensive improvements would stack up, even in a meaningless game, against the NFC's top quarterback.

For a moment, assume the worst for Sam Bradford. Picture him at Lambeau Field on Aug. 29, dropping back to pass against the Packers during the Eagles' third preseason game. The third exhibition game is a team's most important preseason game. It's the dress rehearsal for the regular season. It's Bradford's best chance, maybe his only chance before the final score starts to matter, to answer the questions about whether, after tearing his left anterior cruciate ligament twice in a 10-month span, he can make Chip Kelly's offense purr like a Ferrari 458 over 16 games.

Despising the Dallas Cowboys never really goes out of vogue around here. The needle on the hate-o-meter just fluctuates based on how well or poorly the team that Jerry Jones bought is playing. With the Cowboys having already dethroned the Eagles as NFC East champions and set to play in an NFC divisional playoff game in Green Bay on Sunday, this is obviously a time in which the needle is tilting to the far right. Speaking of the right, Gov. Christie, a lifelong lover of the Cowboys despite being a lifelong resident of the less-vegetative northern end of the Garden State, has added a unique twist to the Dallas disdain.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Reading too much into one 60-minute act of football is always a perilous exercise in the 21st-century NFL. Today's team of destiny could be tomorrow's downgraded discard, and yesterday's rejects always have a shot at redemption the following week. Now that we have that disclaimer out of the way, let's say this about what transpired in the wind and cold at Lambeau Field late Sunday afternoon: The Eagles looked so feeble and inferior against quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers that it is difficult to imagine them coming back here in January and winning a far more meaningful game.

THERE'S A CHANCE that if you've seen the Green Bay Packers play more than once this season, you've seen them play really well and also really, really poorly. The Packers looked amazing in last Sunday night's 55-14 dismemberment of a bitter rival, the Chicago Bears. But remember that Thursday night game at Seattle, the league's season opener, that ended with the Packers losing, 36-16? Every NFL pundit rushed to his Twitter account to proclaim that the Seahawks were going to repeat as the Super Bowl champs.
