    That's right, the former Bears (and others') QB was recently hired as coach at Nease High School.

    As for the games this week, I'll have to look them up and get back to ya.

    Not too many games jumping off the page.

    Steelers and Giants is a decent matchup.

    Ravens at Browns - for a Brown win
    Viking/Seahawk winner will take a big step to the playoffs.

    Cowboys at Falcons/Eagles at Saints could be entertaining in a train wreck type of fashion. It could be the last game for a couple of coaches.

    Recently hired, as in last spring. Try to keep up.

    Actually, Mr. Jacksonville and Surrounding Areas of Insignificance, it was January, which, if you're not aware, is the winter. You only missed it by a season.

    Chiefs-Chargers = Thursday night shitshow.

    The most amazing thing to me as a Colts looser fanboi is that Manning and Luck have the same record so far this season. Granted, Denver is better, and its schedule is weak enough it could run the table the rest of the way. But things have worked out as well as can be expected for everyone involved in this deal.

    Colts-Miami, which looked to have no significance to anyone early on, now looks like it could make a huge difference in the AFC wild card race.

    Really surprised at Miami. After getting rid of Marshall, seemingly reaching for Tannehill and looking all sorts of dysfunctional on Hard Knocks, I was expecting a 2-win season.

    January, last spring, whatever. Certainly wasn't "recent." I got it closer than YG.
    And our winter was so warm last year fall just went to spring.

    Well, a factor in all of this is how down the AFC is this year, and the benefits of playing a last-place schedule. Miami only has four games left against teams with winning records: Indianapolis, the Patriots (twice) and San Francisco. Colts have the same number: Miami, Houston twice (in the last three weeks) and New England.

    But still, Tannehill has done OK for himself as a rookie, and Miami's defense is tough. And there's the rejuvenation of Reggie Bush.

    I know we discuss Alex Smith a lot on here, and I know a lot of people aren't sold on him -- I think he is perfectly fine for what the 49ers are trying to do -- but here is a small sampling of what he faces in the Bay Area. I post this because it isn't all that unusual a take:

    Tim Kawakami ‏@timkawakami
    yeah what a horrible night.RT @geemoney09 still same old Alex. Average qb. Can only throw to wide open receivers. Won't throw receivers open

    This was last night when Smith was 18 for 19, the highest single-game completion percentage in NFL history (minimum 15 throws), and threw three touchdown passes. The only incomplete pass was a drop by a wide-open receiver.

    Bryant McKinnie sued for $375,000 unpaid bill at strip club.


    There is a charge for licking the dancer's hoochie, as opposed to the Love Boat where the upfront price is all-inclusive.

    Half empty/half full conundrum. He's better than Sanchez, Vick, Skelton, Bradford, Wilson (maybe not for long), Palmer, Gabbert, Newton, Cutler, Ponder, etc. But he's not a guy who's going to win the game for you. I just wish he would at least get to the Jeff Garcia level. Stats are deceiving, last night he was 12 yds per attempt. Phenomenal for him (avg. is around 7) but its not like he's throwing 15 yd outs or hooks. 47 was to Moss on an 8 yd hook and 25 was to Crabtree on a 5 yd hitch that he broke.
