• Today the Chargers and their psyche will be dissected more than Lindsay Lohan’s mental state over the years. But the truth is actually quite simple: they’re just dumb.
  • After their shocking win the Chiefs became the first team in NFL history to go from a 0-3 record to first place in their division four games later.
  • It’s still very unlikely that Peyton Manning will be healthy enough to appear in a game by the end of this season. But even if there’s an opportunity for that pipe dream to come true, team chairman Bill Polian said Manning would still be held back since Indy’s offensive line is so bruised and battered. There’s still a roster spot available for Manning though, even if it means putting the Colts at a disadvantage on Sundays.
  • With the Bengals visiting Tennessee this week Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean dialed up Pacman Jones to reflect on his disastrous and trouble-filled time as a Titan.

  • The similarities between the 2010 and 2007 versions of the Detroit Lions after eight weeks are odd and downright eerie.

  • You don’t need numbers to prove how bad the Dolphins have been. But if you’d like some there are plenty to choose from.
