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.)

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.

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.
