How do you know when potatoes have gone bad?

If they have those sprout things growing out of them, I can just remove them, right?  It's just if the potato starts to get soft that's it's no longer edible, correct? 

I found a couple potatoes in my pantry yesterday, but didn't check them out up close...I was thinking of using them to make twice baked potatoes tonight, so I just wanted to check on exactly how I would know if they're still good or not.  I've never had an issue with a rotten potato before, but I also don't know how long these potatoes have been in there.  I didn't even know I had them!
