Well, this may be one reason why our Matt Hasselbeck projection was so completely off. Hasselbeck was not only playing the second half of the season with two broken fingers on his left hand; he also had a torn labrum in his left shoulder, which now needs surgery. That will keep him out six months, enough time for Seneca Wallace to get lots of reps in camp and then sit down for the start of another regular season.

And Marty Schottenheimer gets a stay of execution... Maybe team president Dean Spanos and GM A.J. Smith really will follow D.J. Gallo's advice and just fire Schottenheimer once the Chargers make the playoffs.

I'm not sure if you're familiar with this concept, but...
Also, "Pro football is violent game and running backs arguably take the greatest amount of punishment." Did you ghost-write this column, Jason Mulgrew?

From the AP: "London will hold the NFL's first regular-season game outside North America this year, the start of a campaign to take American football to a global audience." According to the article, the Dolphins and the Giants are the two likely teams, and the new 90,000-seat Wembley stadium is the likely venue. Commissioner Roger Goodell will announce the specifics before the Super Bowl.

James Lofton is apparently discussing terms to become the next head coach of the Oakland Raiders. The article notes the Raiders to be the Chargers' "most-hated rival", which is odd. I thought their most-hated rival was celebratory dancing.

This week, Gregg Easterbrook says he might hurt someone if he hears another announcer say "almost intercepted." Just so you know.

Ten minutes. That's how long it took for the "Fire Brian Billick" talk to start following Saturday's loss to the Colts. Well, Billick's not going anywhere and yesterday he announced quarterbacks coach Rick Neuheisel will be the offensive coordinator next season. Except that Billick will still the call the plays. Not sure how that works, but Billick did add this: "[A]t the end of the day, quite frankly, I enjoyed [play-calling]. It's been a long time since I've enjoyed myself that much." As part of his new job title, Neuheisel will get to run the offensive meetings and help devise game plans.

Robbie Tobeck is certainly not a household name, but he will be missed after his retirement. (Click link to read more.)

This pretty nifty article takes a look back at the weaknesses reported on some of the college scouting reports of current Steeler players. Steeler fans, have they improved?

The Panthers need tackles, the Saints need pass-rushers, the Bucs need a safety, while the conference champs need help on... offense?
