10 Things We Learned From NFL Week 9

Posted: Updated:
  1. No matter how sorry Jerry Jones is, he isn't half as sorry as his team.
  2. Now that Wade Phillips has some free time on his hands perhaps he can manage the Cowboys' website.
  3. If the NFL worked the way the English Premier League does, the Cowboys, Bills, Seahawks, and Panthers would all be in danger of being relegated to the UFL.
  4. When Eric Mangini answered questions at his post-game press conference he should have stated that the key to beating the Patriots is secretly videotaping their practices.
  5. Philip Rivers could probably throw for 300 yards if his regular receivers were all replaced by zombies.
  6. The Giants must have felt like they were still on their bye week.
  7. Someone ought to punch Tom Cable in the jaw if he replaces Jason Campbell with Bruce Gradkowski after the Raiders' bye week.
  8. Le'Ron McClain is the spitting image of Channing Crowder.
  9. Nick Folk and Donovan McNabb should co-write a book called The Complete Idiot's Guide to the NFL's Overtime Rules.
  10. Chargers' special teams coach Steve Crosby should update his resume. On second thought, maybe he shouldn't.
