Antwaan Randle El was a gamble as a second-round pick in 2002 as a 5-foot-10 QB, but he's made a big impact on the Steelers. He had two catches at wide receiver and set up scoring drives with two punt returns against the Redskins.
The Bucs' Martin Gramatica, who already had missed five field-goal tries, missed three more yesterday and is likely to be cut.
Coach Dick Vermeil has to shoulder some blame for the Chiefs' five blown fourth-quarter leads. It's not all on the defensive coordinator.
Carolina's Keary Colbert, a second-round pick, has emerged as one of the best rookie receivers. He had the winning catch yesterday.
