Well, here's your big injury of Week 3, and it is a doozy. Rex Grossman won't be using this season to hone his skills as Chicago quarterback because he is out for the year after tearing his right ACL. Jonathan Quinn is going to be starting for the Bears, who have got to be looking at the waiver wire now if they have any hope of competing this season. Hey, the Chiefs just waived Damon Huard... In other injury news, Miami reporters are saying Lamar Gordon is out for the year. Boy, it just gets worse for the Dolphins. Charlie Garner's season (and possibly career?) is over in Tampa. And Rich Gannon is out at least six weeks with a broken vertabrae.
This year's update to the playoff drive stats show that the football gods may have been on Peyton Manning's side this time. Also: Cam Newton and Alex Smith enter the mix, and why we should be comparing Andrew Luck to Dan Marino.
