A classic Mike Tanier conversation-starter here, as he looks at today's NFL starts and their historical comparables. Plus, it has neat art! So: Is Russell Wilson just Fran Tarkenton? Is Cam Newton just early-career John Elway? Is Antonio Brown the new Tim Brown? Dicsuss.

The weather may have turned colder, but for injuries Week 12 appears to have been the mildest of the year so far.

In which I handcuff Nelson Agholor to Jeff Janis for comedic purposes and finally have the chance to use a Doctor Strange reference that people might actually get.

Whenever possible, I try to assemble something special for Thanksgiving. Longtime readers know that our family celebrates not just Thanksgiving, but my oldest son's (and my) birthday. The holiday has always taken on a special significance to me, as I have always been a firm believer in our nation's civic spirit, a belief that has gotten rather rickety in the last few weeks.

Week 11 brought just about the worst set of outcomes possible for the Cincinnati Bengals, while the Seahawks and Eagles were left with one healthy starter-level running back between them.
UPDATE: Andrew Luck, Jay Cutler also injured.

Nice video profile of Seattle general manager John Schneider by Michael Silver of NFL.com. Why yes, that is a copy of Football Outsiders Almanac on his desk!

Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has been suspended four games for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. The fifth-year wide receiver, playing this season under the franchise tag, ranked 16th among qualifying WRs in receiving DYAR and 20th in DVOA heading into yesterday's loss to Tampa Bay. He will miss Chicago's games at the Giants, home against the Titans and 49ers, and at Detroit before returning to face the Packers in Week 15.

Week 10 was a good week for fantasy football injury news, but a rough one for the big guys in the trenches.

Interesting graphic over at Over The Cap, where Jason Fitzgerald shows how each team's cap spending in 2016 compares to its DVOA at the midway point of the season. What on earth are the Jets doing?

Long headline! Anyway, the Seahawks, Patriots and Cowboys aren't good. And Kirk Cousins cannot sing.

The NFL gets to show off four of their greatest quarterbacks this week. Has this fearsome foursome ever been topped? Your Scramble team remembers conference championships of yore, and take a trip back to their childhoods to try and find an answer.
