Credit where credit is due ... this article from Cold Hard Football Facts is really cool. The staff decided to try to pick an all-time NFL team, but with a catch. They could only pick 11 players, who had to play offense and defense. The resulting article is far more historical than what you'll usually find over there, although they toss a couple of interesting recent players in there as well. Good grist for the debate mill here, and you'll learn something about the old NFL.

Earlier this week in Quick Reads, I wrote about how Tiki Barber has staved off father time, with more value than any other running back in the league this year despite being 31 years old. Well, Tiki Barber himself seems to understand how this age thing works, and he's now saying this is probably his final season.

Chicago may have pulled out the victory, but their offensive ineptitude means a major tumble in our DVOA ratings, leaving the Bears slightly behind the San Diego Chargers. Plus: Three NFC East teams in the top six, and Pittsburgh becomes the latest team to leap up the charts after a blowout win. Commentary now available on FOXSports.com.

Just in case you didn't learn it from Michael Lewis's new book, just in case you didn't learn it from watching the 2006 Seattle Seahawks, just in case you didn't learn it from tonight's Arizona choke job, let me remind you that the offensive line is important. So the Bengals are in some serious trouble, now that Levi Jones, one of the top left tackles in the game, needs arthroscopic knee surgery and is out for a few weeks. The Bengals have already had problems without center Rich Braham.

Does Michael Lewis's new book do for football what Moneyball did for baseball? Actually, no -- but that doesn't mean FO readers won't enjoy it. A short review.
