The Lions, looking for more of a power back behind Jahvid Best, have traded Jerome Harrison and an undisclosed 2013 draft pick (rumored to be a seventh-rounder) to Philadelphia for Ronnie Brown.
UPDATE: Um, never mind. Apparently Harrison failed his physical, and the deal is off.
Turns out during the physical that the Eagles discovered Harrison had a brain tumor, and the trade being voided may have prevented much worse things from happening.

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?
