At the AOL FanHouse, Michael David Smith writes that T.O. admitted to spitting on DeAngelo Hall during last night's game: "I got frustrated and I apologize for that, but it was a situation where he kept bugging me." I also spit on people when they're bugging me, so I can totally understand where T.O.'s coming from on that one.

First Mike Martz recruits Mike Furrey and Az-Zahir Hakim to Detroit and ... Marshall Faulk might be next? I think Faulk's a Hall of Fame running back, but he has missed all of 2006 with a knee injury and he'll be 34 years old next season. Surely, the Lions can do better than that. Okay, maybe they can't.

I know what you're thinking: Brad Johnson packs heat? Wrong Johnson. From the AP: "Chicago Bears' defensive tackle Terry 'Tank' Johnson was charged Thursday with six counts of possession of a firearm without a gun owner identification card after police said they found six guns at his Gurnee home."

I'd like to think this won't devolve into an Addai-Maroney discussion, but I know you people. In all seriousness, right now, Vince Young gets my vote (and it would've been Marques Colston if he didn't miss a couple of games with an injury).

Hines Ward is widely regarded as one of the best receivers in the league at picking up first downs. But do the statistics back it up? (Click link to read more.)

Lamar Hunt was the Dallas oil man who turned Kansas City into a major league sports town, even though he never lived there. He was one of the men behind the AFL and he was responsible for the term "Super Bowl." He died last night at the age of 74 due to complications from prostate cancer.

There isn't much to this Star-Telegram piece but I'm posting it to point out that DeAngelo Hall might be the most overrated cornerback in the NFL. From the story: "Hall, in his third year, has four interceptions this season and is usually assigned to the opposing team's top receiver. While the Falcons' pass defense is ranked 31st in the league, the 5-foot-10, 197-pound Hall can stop some of the best wideouts in the league." That's funny because against No. 1 and No. 2 receivers the Falcons rank 30th and 32nd, according to DVOA. (Free registration/bugmenot required.)

Did the Dolphins' defense know Tom Brady's protection calls? That would help explain the five quarterback sacks and endless pressure. The Boston Globe's Mike Reiss has an interesting look at what may have happened and how the Patriots are likely to combat it going forward.

Given the historical success of undrafted quarterbacks in the NFL, Tony Romo might as well be a national treasure. We look at the impact of developmental leagues on undrafted quarterbacks, and just how many players have tried to break through in a recent season.
