ESPN's All Under-the-Radar Team

Can we do an Extra Point on something that isn't linkable? Len Pasquarelli has put together a great all-star team of lesser-known players over at ESPN.com. The rules are simple: players must be in their third year or later, they cannot be first-round picks, and you cannot include anyone who has been to the Pro Bowl as a positional player. This is the sort of thing that should spur awesome FO reader debate -- except it's a flash doo-hickey and I have no idea how to link it. So, sorry ESPN, we're going to discuss your team without actually sending you traffic.

Report: Green Gone After Season, Cards Pursuing Mariucci

I can understand why Denny Green would lose his job, but shouldn't the Cardinals set their sights a little higher than Steve Marriuci?

UPDATE: Jay Cutler to Start Week 13

Am I the only person who thinks benching Jake Plummer for rookie Jay Cutler is a bit premature? Since, you know, the Broncos have a really good chance to make the playoffs.

(UPDATE: 9pm Wednesday night, this now points to an NFL.com article where Adam Schefter reports that the Broncos will start Plummer this week, but will replace him with Cutler beginning with the Sunday night game against the Seahawks on December 3.)

Peter King Analyzes Eli Manning

Credit where it's due: Peter King shows some honest-to-goodness analysis in this week's mailbag. Perhaps taking a page from Dr. Z's playbook, he charted every single one of Eli Manning's passes last night. Conclusion: "Though I don't think it's hopeless, his accuracy has to be a concern to the Giants."

All a Part of Its Vision

Here's an interesting article about Steve Bornstein, the NFL's executive vice president for media. After stints with ESPN and ABC, Bornstein hopes to build the three-year-old NFL Network into a success. With 40 million viewers, it looks like he's on the right track, but there's a snag: as the NFL gets ready to broadcast it's first live game this Thursday, the NFL Network and cable companies are still squabbling over the details. And yes, details means money.
