• Is Aaron Rodgers still dating Destiny Newton? Probably, or maybe we just needed a blatant, poorly disguised excuse to re-post this picture of Newton’s lower back art.
  • The Jaguars have chosen the most sensible path at quarterback, and rookie first-round pick Blaine Gabbert will make his first career start this Sunday against the Panthers. The switch was first reported by Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union, and later confirmed by The Associated Press.
  • Warren Moon still thinks race played a significant role in the JaMarcus Russell comparisons Cam Newton faced before last April’s draft.
  • If I had to take a wild guess at the odds of San Francisco making the playoffs, I’d say they’re down to probably about 55.2%. But that’s just a guess.
  • Yes, it’s still stupid early, but any time there’s a zero in the loss column the team that possess it will come under greater scrutiny. The Bills are discovering this, especially when it comes to their pending unrestricted free agents.
  • Michael Vick still has to pass concussion tests, but the Eagles remain confident that he’ll be ready to play Sunday. That’s good, because Tom Coughlin isn’t wasting any time developing two game plans.
  • On his own sideline Coughlin has grown used to visits with the training staff that end in bad news. That trend will hopefully be reversed tomorrow when Osi Umenyiora returns to practice.
  • The Jets’ offensive line was already struggling, and was allowing Mark Sanchez to smell opposing armpits even with a healthy Nick Mangold. Now with Mangold out there’s some serious concern about the team’s depth at center.
  • Is Colt McCoy just another Matt Cassel, a guy who’s good enough to be the starter on a playoff-caliber team, but not a legitimate Super Bowl contender?
  • The early returns on Atlanta’s efforts to upgrade their pass rush and provide support for John Abraham are promising.
