Marion Barber Still Doubtful: Marion BarberThanks to ESPN Dallas' Matt Mosley, I will be starting Felix Jones in two fantasy leagues tonight. That's because the stiff arm master Marion Barber is still doubtful for tonight's game and missed walkthroughs yesterday. Tashard Choice is also an interesting start but I doubt you'd have an open roster spot for him at this point. Related but not important: Jerry Jones announced the roof will be open for this game.

Baylor Bears Suffer Big Loss: The Baylor Bears have lost starting quarterback Robert Griffin for the rest of the season because of a torn ACL. Thankfully, Griffin is just a sophomore, so we will get to see more of him. [ESPN] (0)(13748)

Michael Crabtree: Michael CrabtreeThe 49er draftee out of Texas Tech still hasn't signed. Shocker, I know. There have not been any major developments since the whole Jets tampering charges story, but I thought I would add a quote or two from our San Fransisco correspondent Matt Barrows. "There's been a notion floating around that the 49ers don't need Crabtree and that the receiver wouldn't fit into their sledge-hammer offense anyway. I disagree. Every account of Crabtree I've gotten is that he is as tough as nails on the field and that he loves to block defensive backs as much as he does catch the ball." And another: "The bigger issue is the reputation of the front office. In the end, that's what this standoff is all about. Agent Eugene Parker felt that this was a battle he could win. He saw a team that hasn't had a winning season since 2002, has a team president under the age of 30, and a GM and negotiator under the age of 40." [Sacramento Bee] (0)(13659)

Terrell Owens Destroys Rodney Harrison

After last night’s Football Night in America broadcast, rookie “analyst” Rodney Harrison went after Buffalo Bills wide receiver Terrell Owens for his post-game comments after being held catchless yesterday by the New Orleans Saints for the first time since 1997.

“He’s just a clown. A straight up clown,” Harrison said.

In response to that remark, Owens completely [...]

Drivin’: Texans Lose A Heart Breaker, Brett Favre Gets Lucky and the Detroit Lions Have The Same Record As the Steelers

Jacksonville Jaguars 31 – Houston Texans 24: The Houston Texans are 1-2. Not the start I expected from my AFC Champion.

It was the same old story for Houston. They could not stop the big play offense while stupid penalties and a turnover did them in. Here is a summary of those events:
