Chicago offensive lineman Fred Miller missed Sunday's Bears game with a broken jaw. He initially told the team he broke his jaw in a fall in his home. Now he admits he broke it when teammate Olin Kreutz punched him. Personally, I would have bet on Miller in that fight -- he's the bigger guy, and he tends to rely on brute strength in his blocking, while Kreutz succeeds more on superior technique. I think this is my favorite sentence of the year:
"Olin and I don't have a problem with each other," said Miller, who has a steel plate in his jaw.
I dunno. I kinda think if I had a steel plate in my jaw because someone punched me, I'd have a problem with that person.

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.
