Chris Simms, apparently, was rushed to the hospital after today's game with the Panthers and has, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, had his spleen removed after rupturing it.

From the AP: "The referee who was suspended after last week's controversial Oregon victory over Oklahoma will work the USC-Arizona game Saturday."
I understand the suspensions "must be staggered throughout the season so the conference has enough officials to cover all its games," but the great coincidence is that Arizona's head coach is Mike Stoops, younger brother of Oklahoma's Bob Stoops.

If you watched the Steelers-Jaguars Monday night game you probably noticed Pittsburgh cornerbacks giving a big cushion to Jacksonville wideouts. Byron Leftwich noticed too because he completed 26 of 39 passes for 260 yards. This article in today's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette explains exactly why Steelers' cornerbacks play so far off the wide receivers. The two-word answer: Troy Polamalu.

New York Jets, you might want to listen up because Dr. Z has some advice on how to build a strong running game.

Originally part of this week's "Manic Monday", this piece was split off because it didn't have a great deal to do with gameday. Published on Seahawks.NET as an overview of the issues I think Commissioner Goodell will find most pressing through the first few years of his tenure.

I mean, what do you say when two dogs kill a horse? Sure, it was a miniature horse, but still. Joey Porter said he was upset by the incident, but probably not as upset as that poor little horse. The Steelers linebacker went on to say that for the safety of his neighbors -- and their horses, I suspect -- he'll ship the two dogs to a kennel in California. Sounds like a job for Cesar Millan.

Yes, this is a blog devoted entirely to chronicling everybody's least favorite FOX announcer. I supposed they could cross-promote with Fire Joe Morgan.

This can't do much for Jeff George's self-esteem. On the other hand, I can't think of a more entertaining way to lose every regular season game than to have Tommy Maddox under center.

Okay, maybe Favre won't be traded to a contender but what about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? Two weeks ago, the Bucs were considered a playoff-caliber team and now they're 0-2. Chris Simms has looked absolutely dreadful and I can't imagine Jon Gruden going with him much longer if he continues to average three picks a game. Granted, Favre can rack up interception totals in a hurry, but he's still better than Simms. And if not Favre, who else is available?

The Buckeyes picked up their first loss and have several negative offensive trends, but don't count them out of the playoff conversation just yet.
