Bears GM Gerry Angelo is politely saying “told you so!” to the Bears’ plethora of preseason critics.
Great headline from The Onion: “Seattle coach Pete Carroll: Seahawks only needs three losses to reach the Super Bowl.”
Because Richard Seymour is hurt, Bills NT Kyle Williams is getting the Pro Bowl nod that so many thought he deserved.
The Chiefs, worried about a possible flu outbreak (Dwayne Bowe missed practice Wednesday due to an illness), are requiring players to wash their hands all week. They’re calling it “Kindergarten Rules”.
Lovie Smith is rooting for his assistant coaches to get head coaching consideration. (The man already has three former head coaches on staff.)
Check out this letter the Cleveland Browns wrote to one of their whiny season ticket holders back in 1974.
Do the Browns need to be worried about Colt McCoy’s questionable play in bad weather?
Maurice Jones-Drew’s knee surgery was a success.
As expected, offensive coordinator Dan Henning has left the Dolphins. (The team has probably been secretly interviewing replacements since October.)
If the Jets win on Sunday, the Chargers will get New York’s second-round pick as part of the Antonio Cromartie trade. If the Jets lose, the pick remains a third-rounder (unless the Jets sign Cromartie to a long-term contract…which is likely but complicated because of the CBA). That make sense?
Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo decided not to renew the contract of Todd Hewitt, the team’s 43-year-long equipment manager. (Had a decent joke to go here, but felt kinda bad after learning the guy had been there four decades-plus.)
