Quote of the day
"The way I'm playing right now, they need to go and cut me, because I'm definitely not worth what I'm getting." -- Washington CB DeAngelo Hall, after an overtime loss to Dallas in which he gave up a key 30-yard pass play on the game-winning drive
It was only three weeks ago that Buffalo was looked like a playoff contender at 5-2, and Miami looked like a team that could go winless. Since then, the Bills have only scored 26 points in three games combined, while the Fins have won three straight by a combined score of 86-20. Go figure.
With one game remaining this weekend, two of the top three running backs this week have been Kevin Smith and Chris Ogbonnaya. And here’s the list of the top six receivers of the week: Vincent Jackson, Torrey Smith, Jordy Nelson, Nate Washington, Victor Cruz, Jerome Simpson. Of that group of receivers, only Jackson was taken in the first 12 rounds of the RIFC draft (Jackson in round #2), and three of them weren’t even drafted. Go figure2.
In college football, not only are the top three teams in the BCS standings from the same conference, they’re from the same division. And if Arkansas can upset LSU this weekend, they’ll all have one loss, and the potential BCS pairings will be thrown into a virtual blender. I’m actually hoping for that. Chaos is good.
