Former Bucs and Steelers lineman Steve Courson, best known for becoming one of the first NFL players to acknowledge using steroids, died Thursday when a tree he was cutting fell on him. He was 50. Courson was using a chain saw to cut down a dead 44-foot tall tree with a circumference of 5 feet when it fell on him.

Yeah, I'm really sick of the whole T.O. saga too, but this is really funny. Apparently TerrellOwens.com is imploring readers to vote T.O. into the Pro Bowl. Hey, if Catherine Zeta-Jones can win an Oscar, why not? At least he has talent.

Jeff Ma talks about the Great Dick Vermeil End Zone Gamble of 2005. (TM) Here's the thing: if Larry Johnson had not made it, and then after the game Vermeil had knocked down a cameraman in anger, then he would be Kenny Rogers, wouldn't he?

It's not good when your secondary is so abysmal the local paper throws around names like octogenarians Terrell Buckley and Bobby Taylor as possible replacements. It's also worth noting that during a radio interview earlier this week, Rodney Harrison called out Duane Starks for, well, not being very good.

The fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers offense only converts 29% of their third downs, while their defense allows opponents to convert third downs at a 44% clip, should slow up the faction of fans voicing their displeasure with the FOX rankings. Still, the Steelers have been very good at keeping opponents out of the end zone, but like Dick LeBeau is fond of saying: "Sometimes you get the bear, and sometimes the bear gets you."
If things don't change in Pittsburgh, we could have a whole other "The Edge" situation on our hands.

Slate subtitles this article "Coaches and broadcasters peddle an easy solution to every problem in football." Apparently, discipline and swagger go hand in hand.

If you were expecting this week's TMQ to applaud the Chiefs for going for it at the end of the game and joke about the Carolina cheerleader story, it turns out you were only half right. Surprise!

King Kaufman makes the very sensible point that, although some pundits will label the 8-0 Colts as halfway to an undefeated season, they're really not. Many teams have started 8-0, but no team has finished 16-0. The '72 Dolphins can't break out the champagne just yet, but they shouldn't sweat, either.

It may still be too early to call 2004 first round pick Reggie Williams a bust, but while we wait around to find out, Ernest Wilford, taken in the fourth round of last year's draft, is quickly becoming Byron Leftwich's favorite target. Interestingly, Jacksonville traded Kevin Johnson to the Ravens for the pick they would use to take Wilford. Johnson is now with the Detroit Lions.

In an opening week where even the elite teams in college football looked mortal, the SEC had two big surprises in Texas A&M and Georgia defeating their South Carolinian opponents by big scores.
