10 Things We Learned From NFL Week 16

Posted: Updated:
  1. President Obama won't be calling Eagles' owner Jeffrey Lurie again anytime soon.
  2. If Mike Singletary had known he was about to be+ fired, he would have lined up Troy Smith and Alex Smith, then knocked them both silly.
  3. The Dolphins will switch to the visiting team's locker room next season for their home games.
  4. There's no reason to watch a Redskins' game until overtime starts.
  5. San Diego Chargers: best offense in football, best defense in football, home for the playoffs.
  6. When the NFL sought to bring about more parity, making it possible for a team to win a division with a 7-9 record and host a first-round playoff game definitely wasn't what they had in mind.
  7. Brett Favre is the only NFL quarterback who needs smelling salts for a game in which he isn't even playing.
  8. Michael Vick said he would vote for himself in the NFL's MVP race, proving once and for all that being in prison is indeed a very humbling experience.
  9. Eric Mangini must realize his job isn't very secure when one of his wide receivers has a touchdown pass, but his quarterback doesn't.
  10. Rex Ryan and his wife, Michelle, should refrain from making and posting any more home videos.
