The Patriots will have neither Eugene Wilson nor Ellis Hobbs available for duty against the Bengals on Sunday; both, along with RT Ryan O'Callaghan, are listed as Out. I think this would make the Cincinnati passing offense a much stronger play in fantasy this week, particularly T.J. Houshmandzadeh and even Chris Henry.

I am shocked this whole Kerry Collins experiment didn't work out.

Plus 10 touchdowns. That's 125 points in your high school fantasy football league. Um, at any point did his coach perhaps think, "hey, maybe it's a good time to give that freshman fourth-stringer a few carries?"

The Seahawks, today, waived former starting linebacker Isaiah Kacyvenski in order to promote running back Marquis Weeks off the practice squad. Kacyvenski, a Harvard graduate and special teams standout, would seem to fit in well on a certain team that used to collect these sort of guys like they were Pogs and has about twelve million dollars in cap room.

Yahoo! Sports' Jason Cole takes a look at which agents negotiated the best and worst deals for this year's first-round picks, but offers this disclaimer: "Readers should take this analysis with a grain of salt. Actually, an entire shaker would be helpful. Some agents are faced with greater obstacles than others, such as teams with rigid policies." NaCl-related issues aside, this is a pretty interesting read.

A new website called Sports Media Guide is going to be interviewing writers from all over the world of sports journalism, and they decided to interview me last week. Here it is for those who are curious to read my stream-of-consciousness ramblings about Football Outsiders. Honestly, I apparently forgot how to speak in complete sentences that day.

Clinton Portis' shoulder is feeling better, and that's good news for Redskins fans. But according to this Washington Post article (free registration/bugmenot required), Portis is retiring his wacky cast of midweek press conference characters ... and that's bad news for fun-loving football fans. Portis cites the fact that the team employee who helped pick out his outfits no longer works with the organization, and that his â€œinspiration has dried up.â€? Farewell, Coach Janky Spanky -- we loved your defense with the two extra Sean Taylors.

If nothing else, this should make it easier for our international FO readers to attend a real live NFL game. Let's just hope it's not the Raiders-Cardinals.

After "scolding another seventh-grader over what the notorious linebacker considered dirty play," former dirty player Bill Romanowski has been given the go-ahead by the recreation league director to continue coaching his son's team. And it's a good thing because what happens when one of those seventh-graders hauls off an punches someone in the face and breaks an eye socket? Who'll be there to give them a high-five?

As actual NFL football returns to our lives, we have observations on good quarterback play in Dallas, bad quarterback play in Denver, the Olympics, baseball, taxes, and mermaids.
