The news out of Detroit is that cornerback and former FO binky Leigh Bodden will not be back in a Lions uniform. The team never really used Bodden correctly, but it's interesting that the new administration, led by Jim Schwartz, couldn't find a place for the man who put up six picks in a more man-coverage role with the Browns in 2007 (apparently, Bodden was Jason David in reverse). Then again, his $8.6 million roster bonus may be informing the decision. This means that when all is said and done, Matt Millen essentially traded Shaun Rogers for Andre Fluellen. Ya still want him, NBC?

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
