Rehab from a major injury always includes a Victoria's Secret model.

  • Don’t worry, Bears fans, your team’s training staff just has innovative injury rehab methods, and raising the player’s spirits by placing him beside scalding hot women is central to their approach. Matt Forte was healthy enough to at least stand on two legs with some degree of stability at a Victoria’s Secret promotional appearance in Chicago yesterday, and Fred Mitchell of the Chicago Tribune dug deep into model Elsa Hosk’s football knowledge in a hard-hitting interview.
  • Before his afternoon with a lingerie model began, Forte received a┬áplatelet rich plasma injection in his right knee. He told the Chicago Sun-Times that his contract situation isn’t effecting his rehab, and he won’t return until he’s 100 percent.
  • Archie Manning doesn’t think that his son Peyton could co-exist with Andrew Luck. Manning said that while it’s financially feasible for the Colts, having both players on the same sideline wouldn’t be beneficial to the career of either quarterback.
  • The Manning elder is probably right, and Stampede Blue agrees, saying that any comparisons to the Brett Favre/Aaron Rodgers situation need to end.
  • Adrian Peterson is eager to return from injury and play out the remainder of the season for a 2-10 team, even if he’s only at 70 percent right now. Radio host and Viking great Chuck Foreman urged Peterson to ignore his competitive fire and stay out Minnesota’s backfield until he’s completely healthy.
  • Losing has been a dominant recent theme for the Buffalo Bills, and that theme has partly been made possible by another troubling trend: dropped passes. But as Buffalo Rumblings observes, several recent glaring drops may be skewing reality, as Bills receivers still rank 26th in dropped passes.
  • The pipe dream of a late-season playoff push by either the Cardinals or Seahawks is one of the thoughts and scenarios pondered by Matt Bowen in his five questions column.
  • We all carry several titles in life, like husband, father, co-worker, and dog sitter. Arrowhead Addicts has given Chiefs tackle Barry Richardson another title: worst tackle in football.
  • We’re a little biased here, but there’s nothing we love more than another slugfest between old media attitudes and new media realities, and this time an apparently stubborn franchise in Indianapolis and its asinine policies are at the center of the debate.
