Yep, there's no doubt about it. The resemblance between Benjamin Button and Danny Woodhead is uncanny.

  • Danny Woodhead has gone from being a castaway with the Jets, to being a key part of the Patriots’ backfield this season. But that isn’t even his most impressive feat. It seems the Patriots do far more than just turn one man’s junk into their treasure, because Woodhead actually became younger when he went to New England. Yep, he’s the real-life Benjamin Button.
  • We could go on about Brett Favre here, and link to scribes trying to makes sense of the NFL’s fine with Sterger-gate finally and mercifully coming to a conclusion earlier today. We could share the views of others who are questioning the shaky moral ground the NFL is standing on following the Ben Roethlisberger decision, the Ines Sainz incident, and now the league’s petty fine of Favre. But by now, we think you’re pretty tired of Favre, and just want him to fade off into the farmlands of Mississippi. Wait…dammit.
  • Joe Webb made a strong case to be Favre’s successor in Minnesota last night during the Vikings’ surprise win over Philadelphia. Webb’s athletic ability make him a stark contrast to the aging and stationary Favre. The 24-year-old showcased his scrambling skills for a national audience during his nine-yard touchdown run, but his teammates were already well aware of what Webb can do. Jumping seven stacked exercise bags will have that effect…
  • The Jaguars are climbing a steep hill this weekend, and need to beat Houston, and hope Indianapolis loses to Tennessee at home if they want to win the AFC South and make the playoffs. Jacksonville faced those less than optimistic odds before learning that David Garrard won’t suit up this weekend, and their fate at quarterback rests in the hands of Trent Edwards.
  • Also filed under ill-timed injuries is the broken toe suffered by Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, who will sit out New York’s crucial game against Washington this weekend. To clinch one of the NFC’s wild card spots the Giants have to win, and hope the Packers lose to Chicago.
  • With the Eagles locked into the third seed in the NFC, and Michael Vick limping noticeably after last night’s loss, trotting him out for a meaningless game this Sunday against Dallas would be quite foolish. Andy Reid agrees, and said that regardless of the Eagles’ playoff position, he doubts Vick could suit up with his quad contusion. Reid didn’t say anything definitive when speaking to the Philly media, but hinted strongly at resting several starters, including wide receiver DeSean Jackson (foot), and linebacker Stewart Bradley (elbow).
  • The next Wade Phillips sighting could happen in Houston, but this time he’d work as a defensive coordinator under Gary Kubiak, whose chances of sticking around with the Texans are still very much up in the air.
