Both Denver (1st and 9th) and Houston (6th and 10th) have 2 players in the top 10 this week on the MVP watch. Good to see Denver getting some love.
It looks like the Alex Smith era may be over in San Francisco. Reports from last night indicate that Colin Kaepernick will start against the Saints. Harbaugh told Smith the decision is not due to his health. I wonder if Smith will end up with another team next season. For the 49ers it's time to roll with Kaepernick.
In the last two weeks Michael Crabtree went from 42% owned to 97% owned in CBS Fantasy Football Leagues.
I freaking hate being a Jets fan.

"I'm a moron for thinking the Browns could even sniff 10 wins in a division where the other three teams (two of whom almost always make the playoffs) made the post-season last year. Gyp Rosetti's thee God of football knowledge." - Brown Notes
I like Tony Sporano; but give it up already with that frickin' Wildcat Offense - The NFL figured it out years ago.
It should be the Cowboys vs either the Chiefs or the Redskins every Thanksgiving.
Life is like watching Fast and the Furious 6. It's not easy, most of the time it's just dumb and pointless, everything is fake, there is a lot of noise, but if you close your eyes and picture yourself in an open field or a quiet forest, you can maybe make it to the end without killing yourself.
But look at the Cowboys... Who was the last coach that really had success with them? Bill Parcells? Barry Switzer? Jimmy Johnson? Their problems go farrr deeper than Ryan being the DC. Far deeper than Jason Garrett being a failed HC. Far deeper.
And though I'd love to unload on Rex, ummmm, lets just remember, they traded assets for Tim Tebow. That coming back to blow up in their face, was like a surprise to NO ONE other than management. Everyone knew that trading for Tebow was going to be bad... Except for the dumbass who actually made that trade.
You could have The Hoodie coaching the Jets right now and with the GM dragging things down, he'd be struggling to win a few games per season.
Soooo, I guess what I'm saying is... Fire Rex? Fine. But lets just remember that the Jets management has been horrible as well. In fact, they did a better job of destroying that franchise than anybody else!
Firing Rex doesn't change the fact that their defense lacks speed and a pass rusher and their offense might have the suckiest players at every single position (other than Left Tackle. that Left Tackle is pretty good). Bad Oline, bad QB, bad WRs, bad RBs, bad everything.
Dallas? Dallas will always suck as long as their owner is trying to play GM, Coach, and Cheerleader.
If I'm Philly I'd strongly consider hiring Rex Ryan. He'd turn that defense into that shutdown defense that they've been advertised as for the past 2 years. Unfortunately, until Philly gets an O-line and a QB who can read defenses, it doesn't really matter who they hire as Head Coach...

For those that think the QB position isn't the most important position for football team please watch the Steelers.
Leftwich last week and Batch this week and I need some Pepto.
