The Jets sign a future Hall of Famer in LaDainian Tomlinson, and he might not even be the best player they got from the Chargers this month. The Browns? Well, we imagine season tickets are just flying off the shelves with Seneca Wallace and Jake Delhomme in the house.

Mike Holmgren is in charge of the Browns, but a Browns fan says the faithful in Cleveland are used to channeling Norman Dale when it comes to authority figures. As in, "I would hope you would support who we are -- not who we are not." So is Eric Mangini Shooter?


Statistically, Tim Couch was a better QB over his first 14 games than Quinn has been. Sad but true.

LT is a much better receiver out the backfield than TJ and it would not surprise me if he gets most of the downs as the lone back on passing plays. I can only imagine how much more damage he can do given the chance to work behind the Jets O-line.

After a season-opening loss, there's no shame in admitting your NFL team has seen better days. After all, everyone loses at some point -- the Giants dropped their opener in 2007 and went on to win the Super Bowl. It's just a little embarrassing to admit your team had those better days with Chris Weinke and Jim Miller at quarterback.

Almost a month before the regular season, SportsNation rated NFL quarterbacks and pegged Jay Cutler at No. 10 and Jake Delhomme at No. 17. But after Week 1 of the season, four was the number that mattered most for both, as in the number of interceptions each tossed in losses to the Packers and Eagles, respectively.

So after the Windy City's new golden child threw more interceptions in one game than Kyle Orton has in 33 of 34 career appearances, is it time to panic? (Update: Wait, Brian Urlacher is out for the year? Now it's time to panic).


What a disgrace! Jake D. and John Fox need to be released asap. There is too much talent on this team, and to let it go to waste over a terrible QB like Jake who cannot manage an NFL offense. Carolina can do better than Jake D, I'm praying they release him at the end of this season regardless of how Carolina does.
