Just in case you didn't learn it from Michael Lewis's new book, just in case you didn't learn it from watching the 2006 Seattle Seahawks, just in case you didn't learn it from tonight's Arizona choke job, let me remind you that the offensive line is important. So the Bengals are in some serious trouble, now that Levi Jones, one of the top left tackles in the game, needs arthroscopic knee surgery and is out for a few weeks. The Bengals have already had problems without center Rich Braham.

If there's ever a Mt. Rushmore for first-round cornerback busts, Phillip Buchanon should get serious consideration. Good thing the Texans only gave up a second- and third-round pick to get him.

Peter King takes us on a whirlwind tour of the NFL football viewing experience from the NBC studios. Ever hear Bob Costas yell at a TV? At a football game? Me neither.

Shawn Krest, one of the game charters, is writing a weekly column on the Buffalo Bills based on his work. It's pretty interesting stuff. This one addresses missed tackles -- unfortunately, tracking those adds so much time to charting that it would be tough getting enough volunteers, but Krest is doing some pretty cool stuff adding his own ideas to our charting categories.

Raiders coach Art Shell has suspended wide receiver Jerry Porter four games without pay for the old "conduct detrimental to the team" violation. Since you can't "Keyshawn" players any longer, it'll be interesting to see what happens to Porter after he serves his suspension.

Aaaaaahhhh! Run for your lives! It's contagious! Seriously, this is getting ridiculous. Doug Johnson, you're a play away.

Bill Simmons said it, I've said it on a few radio appearances, and now Doug Drinen chimes in. This is the weirdest fantasy season ever. I feel bad that the KUBIAK projections seem a little off so far -- but that just means they have the same problem as every other set of projections produced this year. Unless somebody wants to show me the guy who predicted Bernard Berrian as the top wide receiver, Marques Colston and Kellen Winslow as the top tight ends, and Charlie Frye as a top 10 quarterback.

Two more blowouts this weekend have us asking: has this been the worst set of playoff games we've ever seen? Plus, DVOA and DYAR ratings from Sunday.
