Yep, Jim Mora Sr. was right - this guy is a coach killer. Best of luck to Petrino, he's gonna need it.
There was a theory that, bu giving Mike Vick more control of the offense, that the Falcons management are actually giving him more rope to hang himself with.

Its hard to believe that Vick had about as much control of the offense as your average player on Madden - a couple of audibles and thats it.

The Matt Schaub scenario is one of most interesting, in terms of NFL back-ups, his stock keeps rising and rising without him actually having to do much.

Its a wonder Oakland dont make a play for him and then spend their high 1st rounder on another offensive weapon, or even a LT.

They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
