A superb looking slate of early games this Sunday (lets just ignore Jacksonville/St Louis), with 4 undefeated teams facing tough road tests.

Yeah, having some bad teams on bye weeks makes the schedule. How often does the combined record of four bye teams have a .125 winning percentage?

Could the Falcons ask the NFL to adopt the Arena Football rule that would allow Tony Gonzales to take a running start towards the line of scrimmage?

"Until then, Lemeul Jeanpierre is the starter; the Seahawks signed him in 2011 as an undrafted rookie out of an 18th century French satirical novel."

Holy sh!t, I had to close my office door after the water I was drinking shot out my nose.

It just edged out "we're going to need scientific notation to express the Jaguars-at-Broncos spread next week." ROFL. Thanks, Mike.

Horst Muhlmann added a 29-yard field goal...

Isn't he the tiny dude with the thick glasses and cane on The Simpsons?

Loved the piece as usual. As for the video; here's guessing that he won't be seeing [m]any of those defenders on Sunday... even with TEVO and the full Ticket of games.
