Other than wondering if Fred Taylor will have no motivation to play hard the rest of the season now that he's going to the Pro Bowl (a question just as stupid as the one that naturally preceded it in the previous days), I'm bored with the NFL. We are working on a couple of things to fill the tedium, but for the meantime these links are half decent.
- Simmons takes a crack at slotting the QBs. It's a pretty funny piece.
- SI comes out with its media awards, but many of them are insane. (Gary Danielson is consistently the worst announcer in college football)
- The Footballoutsiders numbers for the Colts are fascinating. I think I knew this intuitively, but the numbers are interesting to see.
Demond Sanders: Gary Danielson spews forth inanity. If that's a word. I could never be bored with the NFL. If such a thing were possible it would have occured during the Steelers game last night. Yet, I watched almost the entire game. The AFC playoffs are going to be fascinating. I'm just hoping the Pats end up with either San Diego (the Chargers hates them with the fire of a thousand suns) or Jacksonville (the Jaguars might just be dumb enough to pull off the upset).
The Steelers victory over they Rams probably sealed the playoff order of 3. Chargers 4. Steelers 5. Jaguars 6. Browns. As far as I can tell this is a good thing, though you never know for sure. The Pats should be good enough to beat any of them, but you'd like them to get an opponent who will wear them out.
