Losing your starting quarterback is never a good thing ... well, unless you're the Redskins, but even with Donovan McNabb done for the season, the Philadelphia Eagles are only a game back of the division leaders. So here's the question: can Philly make the playoffs with Jeff Garcia, A.J. Feeley, or some combination of the two? And looking forward, should the team give serious consideration to finding a quality backup?

Rex Grossman: the king of making blowouts even more lopsided.

Brett Favre cannot be stopped and anyone who gets in his way will be destroyed. Or something like that. Aaron Rodgers is done for the season with a broken foot and rookie Ingle Martin is now the backup.

Is Charlie Frye really as bad as everyone say’s he is? Aaron Schatz uses similarity scores to find out if it is time for Cleveland to give up and find a new quarterback of the future.

This one is strictly a rumor at this point, but CSTV s reporting that Steve Spurrier will likely leave South Carolina to take the Miami (Fla.) job following the season. Miami would certainly be a far better platform than South Carolina for Spurrier to get back involved in the national-title race, but this move would still come as a major surprise.

Update: The Detroit News and other media outlets are now confirming that former Michigan coach Bo Schembechler has passed away. Schembechler was 77 and has had heart problems for 35 years, yet his passing on the eve of the biggest game in the history of the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry is still somehow chilling.
RIP, Bo. Enjoy the game from up above.
Not that it's typically needed on FO, but let's keep the comments classy, folks, and hope that this doesn't get shameless exploited for added ratings points tomorrow.

Let's just say Dr. Z isn't crazy about how the league -- including officials during games -- metes out punishment. In particular, the Marlon McCree-on-T.J. Houshmanzilly hit during last Sunday's Chargers-Bengals game really got the good doctor riled up. I'm guessing Brooklyn Decker and that dopey "The Model vs. The Man" eases the pain, though.

It's a year of huge cornerback contracts, with A.J. Bouye and Stephon Gilmore breaking the bank. But will these big-money contracts, and the big-time gambles associated with them, pay off?
