Coughlin Demotes Offensive Coordinator

As I told Mike Tanier after reading his most recent FOX Blog entry, "The Worst Coach of 2006", he may want to give Tom Coughlin more consideration. The Giants' head coach has stripped offensive coordinator John Hufnagel of his play-calling responsibilities before the final game of the season, though he says he's been pondering the move for weeks.

Halfway Out the Vikings Door

So Much Favre Love You'll Blow Your Head Off

If the whole point of the flex scheduling was to allow NBC to show meaningful matchups late in the season, why on earth did they choose Green Bay-Chicago as the final prime time game of the season? What, Brett Favre again? By this point, most people seem to think he's not retiring, so this actually isn't his final game, and I can't imagine that many people across the country care about watching Brett Favre play the Chicago backups (except for maybe us Adrian Peterson acolytes). There's an excellent chance that Green Bay will be out of the playoff hunt before this game starts.

Antonio Bryant Suspended Four Games

The most jacked man in football, FOX's Jay Glazer, is reporting that Antonio Bryant has been suspended four games by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He will miss the last two games of this regular season, any playoff games the 49ers might play this year (and doesn't that feel weird to say), or the first two games next year if they don't advance. Adjust your fantasy team accordingly.
