Each morning, Monday through Thursday (and sometimes Friday, schedule permitting), I'll hook you up with some reading material to skim through as you slug down coffee and slack off at the start of your workday -- that way I'll have an excuse to do the same at the start of mine.

Ravens guard Chris Chester could miss the next two weeks due to a skin infection. ... An ACC official says that overturning Florida State's late interception in Saturday's win over Maryland would have been the wrong call. ... Raiders defensive lineman Richard Seymour was ejected from Sunday's game against the Steelers for slugging quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

You said it:

"I think that Flacco has his moments in the pocket, but for the most part I'm far more impressed with the Jets' Mark Sanchez in the pocket this year. If Flacco doesn't get through his reads quickly enough he has a tendency to run into the line rather than keep his eyes upfield and shift in the pocket. He did that today too when the blocking broke down in the second half, so I'd say he was inconsistent." -- Danny likes what he sees from Mark Sanchez more than he likes what he sees from Joe Flacco

Today's water cooler question (your response could be published in b):
