Well, that sucks. Sucks for the Browns, and for all of us who like to watch great football players.

Wait, what? The Patriots have a habit of doing this right before the season with aging veterans, don't they? First Lawyer Milloy, then Richard Seymour, now they've dealt 32-year-old Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins to Tampa Bay for tight end Tim Wright (good receiver, can't block) and a pick. Everyone's jumping to conclusions on Twitter, but it's hard to judge the trade until we know what the pick is. But still... it feels like the Pats are always playing fifth dimensional chess. Is Mankins in decline? Is this about the cap space for a Darrelle Revis extension?

Nebraska runner Ameer Abdullah’s 43-yard touchdown vs. Illinois offers a sound example of the difficulties of judging speed without a stopwatch, but why it’s still as important as the 40-time.

This is, in some ways, my ultimate Mandatory Monday at Sports on Earth. In other ways, it is just another On the Rise list.

Tough break here for the Rams and for Sam Bradford, who will miss the entire 2014 season after another tear in his left ACL in Saturday night's preseason game against Cleveland. It's the same ACL he tore in the middle of last year. Veteran Shaun Hill now becomes the Rams' starting quarterback; he at least has a good track record of avoiding turnovers. They'll surely be scouring the waiver wire the next week or two to find a better backup than Austin Davis. Meanwhile, this is probably the end for Bradford in St. Louis, as he has a cap number around $16 million for next year.

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.
