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.

Manic Monday: Down to the Wire

In this week's quick recap/typo thread, Vince Lombardi may have said it best: "What the hell is going ON out there?!?!?" The Seahawks won the NFC West despite losing their third straight game, and a host of 7-8 teams are still alive in that Mutt-and-Jeff conference. The Bears have home field throughout, but they've hardly looked like world-beaters of late.

Manic Monday: A Tough Year for the Babe

In today's recap: LT Plays Maris and Ford to Alexander's Bambino, Indy's run defense falls yet again; Manning the Younger is Manning the Better for once; the Saints are decidedly for real; the Bengals discover that sometimes, circumstances make men (especially on defense); Adrian Wilson gets the namecheck he deserves; and the Quarterback Switcheroo is biting two AFC West teams right in the tuckus.

Bengals' O'Neal Charged With DWI

Yes, it's THEM again! It's not even funny anymore. Well, maybe a little bit. When Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Deltha O'Neal blew an 0.10 blood alcohol level after being stopped at a traffic checkpoint early Saturday, he became the eighth Bengal arrested this year. I'm not 100% sure, but this could break a record set by the Switzer-era Cowboys.

Manic Monday: Numbers Need Nuance

It was a strange day for quarterbacks. Signal callers with single-digit quarterback ratings won games, one field general with negative net passing yardage landed in the win column, and Rex Grossman proved the well-rounded nature of his Chicago team by putting forth a horrid, but victorious, effort. I hope this week was the final nail in the coffin for that most ridiculous NFL stat: W-L records for quarterbacks.

Manic Monday: A Host of Thanks

Over the holiday weekend, many in the NFL had that for which they should give thanks – a list of possibilities is included. Plus: The defending champs assure themselves a relaxing February, Addai does what the Edge no longer can, Asante Samuel may have to clear a space on his trophy case, LJ and Jamal Anderson now have something in common, Brian Billick awaits a visit from Mr. T, and The Ryans are recognized at last.
