    Week 9 starts with the firing of the Chargers defensive coordinator:

    Culpepper's "better" offer came from, of all teams, the Lions ... Well, maybe:

    The Colts suck:

    And the Titans are the best team in the league:

    And Clinton Portis, who has run for more than 120 yards in five straight games and looks like a serious MVP candidate, goes against the league's third-best run defense in the Steelers on MNF. Should make for a good matchup.

    And Marvin Lewis must wonder what he has done to still keep his job.

    Watch the injury reports on that one -- Samuels and Moss for the Redskins and Clark for the Steelers' defense.

    This game will tell us a lot about both teams. Will the Steelers bounce back after a suckass offensive game where they blew down the stretch? Or will the Skins continue to do enough to complement Portis on offense so they can control the clock and keep the other team's offense off the field.

    Let us not forget about the potentially regrettable game in Cleveland between the Browns and Ratbirds. That game will go a long way in deciding if we Browns fans should even care the rest of the way. [/cue mean realistic people]

    I really shouldn't write anybody off in that division. The Steelers have some real problems right now and the Ravens and Browns could definitely climb right back in the race the next few weeks.

    Marvin Lewis should have been fired on Christmas Eve 2006.

    One can only hope. How cool would it be if the finale was for all the marbles? Given recent history, I hope God calls in sick that day.

    With Santonio Holmes back from suspension, I think some of the Steelers' offensive troubles from last week will go away. With Holmes, some things the Steelers could have done to negate that Giants pass rush -- like the quick slant, where Holmes scored a touchdown against the Ravens -- weren't there.

    Even if they're not explosive plays, the fact that those plays would help move the chains would be a start.

    How Lewis still has a job is beyond me.

    Seems as if the Skins have played up to their competition (except for the season opener) and played down (see Rams, Browns, Lions).

    I see a 17-14 game. Not smart enough to pick a winner.

    Agreed. Hines Ward may still catch more passes, but Holmes is the toughest receiver on that team to cover, the one who opens things up for everybody else. The Steelers are also very thin at receiver. At this point, Limas Sweed just isn't ready to play the role they asked of him against the Giants.
