Tampa Bay? No way. For 17-year-old Rich McKay, it was culture shock. L.A was his city, football was his life and the USC Trojans were his passion. USC's coach, John McKay, was his father. One of the Trojan receivers, J.K. McKay, was his older brother. The USC quarterback, Pat Haden, was a close family friend.

ORLANDO, Fla.  - The NFL set scoring and yardage records last season - the league loves that - and had all the hallmarks of competitive balance, including 48% of games that were decided by seven points or fewer, the fourth-most in history. But, as is typical this time of year, there's a push from teams to further tweak the rules. The ideas might be legitimate improvements, or maybe just superfluous tinkering, but that's for team owners to decide at this week's annual meetings, a three-day event at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Orlando.

It was a clash of wills that threatened to tear apart the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. On one side was Coach Jon Gruden, once the boy wonder of coaching, a renowned workaholic so confident in his own philosophy and methods that he walked out on Al Davis rather than submit to the Raider way. On the other side was General Manager Rich McKay, whose claim to fame in his younger years was that he was the son of legendary USC Coach John McKay. Whom would you take?

PALM BEACH, Fla. — NFL owners on Wednesday voted to expand the playoff overtime rules to the regular season, increasing the likelihood that both teams will get to touch the ball in the extra period. The rule means that if a team scores a field goal on the first possession of overtime, the opposing team will get a possession. A touchdown on the first overtime possession will still result in sudden-death victory. That was one of five rule proposals that passed on the final day of the annual league meetings at the Breakers hotel.

Rich McKay wants out as general manager of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Super Bowl champions are willing to let him go without receiving compensation. The Buccaneers gave McKay permission to talk to other teams, and Tampa Bay's general manager since 1995 could end up with the Atlanta Falcons, who are looking for a general manager to lead their coaching search to replace the fired Dan Reeves.

The Denver Broncos like to throw, throw, throw. And if that doesn't work, they throw some more. "We're expecting a ton of it," Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine told the New York Daily News last week during a break from preparations to play the Broncos on Sunday. He said Denver Coach Josh McDaniels -- a former Patriots assistant -- has "the New England mentality that if you can't run it, let's throw it every snap. "It's something that we're going to get, given the struggles we've had defending the pass, and given their struggles in the run game.

Reporting from New Orleans ? The NFL might be a safer place, but not necessarily a happier one. By a count of 26-6, teams voted Tuesday to modify the kickoff by moving forward five yards to the 35, thereby increasing the likelihood of touchbacks and decreasing that of returns, citing frequent injuries as the impetus for change. The 20-yard line will remain the spot on touchbacks, instead of the proposed change to the 25, and a two-man wedge still will be permitted. Rich McKay, chairman of the competition committee, said the move should result in 5% to 15% more touchbacks.

Reggie Bush wore jersey No. 5 for USC. He won't get to wear the same number for the New Orleans Saints. NFL rules stipulate that running backs wear numbers between 20 and 49, and Atlanta Falcons General Manager Rich McKay, co-chairman of the NFL's competition committee, said Tuesday the panel had recommended against Bush's request for No. 5.
