I'm 9-2-1 against the spread today, with the Chargers and Cardinals the only teams to let me down. The Bengals-Panthers were a push.

Denny Green just sucker-punched another microphone after losing to the Raiders. He wasn't disciplined by the NFL, but five Miami Hurricanes were suspended for one game.

Cincinnati is 5-0 when wearing those hideous orange jerseys. You can look it up. But honestly, why would you?

I'll never get a clear read on the Chiefs. I'm wrong every week.

Chester Taylor ran for 169 yards, 95 coming on one carry, in the Vikings' upset of the Seahawks in Seattle, making him the early favorite for this year's Priest Holmes Award, given to the former Ravens running back who haunts his old team.

Three certainties in life: Death, taxes, and a television camera focusing on the head coach immediately after his kicker misses a field goal.

Happens every time.

Joe Gibbs got a little face time after former Maryland kicker Nick Novak was wide left on a 35-yard attempt. Gibbs didn't show any expression. I'm not sure he owns one. It might not be in Daniel Snyder's budget.

Just once, I want to see a coach make a strangling motion with his hands. Just once.

I know Matt Bryant made a 62-yard field goal to beat Philadelphia, but what was Tampa Bay coach Jon Gruden thinking?

I can't imagine him assessing the situation and saying to himself, "Oh yes, we've got this." But Bryant nailed it.

Matt Bryant? Next, you're going to tell me the record for longest field goal is shared by a guy with half a foot.

Nice to see Michael Vick play like a quarterback instead of a running back. He should try it more often.

Can we please line up everyone who picked the Miami Dolphins to go to the Super Bowl and revoke their credentials? Or at least point and laugh?

I can't sign off without a baseball reference, so here goes:

I'm still waiting for the Orioles to announce their coaching hires. And release their 2007 schedule. Or Julio Manon.
