OK, maybe I'm stretching a bit by reaching into the college ranks for the third guy, but that's three running backs who are gone for the year after ACL tears announced today. Kevin Faulk is the most important of the three: his role as a receiver is probably overrated but his role in pass protection on third downs is likely underrated. Jewel Hampton, for NFL fans who don't know him, is a promising Iowa sophomore who lost last season to a right knee ACL tear and will now lose 2010 to a left knee ACL tear.
Link goes to a Faulk story.

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.
