Tarvaris Jackson to Start for Vikings

Good news: Vikings rookie quarterback Tarvaris Jackson will start this Thursday night against the Packers. Bad news: Minnesota's 6-8. Sure, they're not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but you'd like to think the Vikings might've had a better shot at the postseason if the move was made three or four weeks ago.

Why Your Color Analyst Can't Have Laryngitis

David Scott calls Saturday night's game the "all-time worst, American, professional TV broadcast." Seriously, how did the NFL Network let Dick Vermeil go on the air when he could not talk? On the other hand, Vermeil was excellent as an analyst, and so was Marshall Faulk when he entered the booth, and even Deion Sanders wasn't half-bad. (Although I could have done without Vermeil's constant references to "remember how you used to do that with the Rams, Marshall?") Public opinion on the NFL Network seems mixed, but my individual opinion is pretty mixed too.

Terrell Owens Admits Spitting in Face of DeAngelo Hall

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.

Martz Ponders Potential with Faulk as a Lion

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.
