    Clearly Juan Castillo and Mike Vick were the biggest problems for the Eagles.

    I'm watching every Broncos game as if it would be the last for Manning.

    And another very low scoring match between the Ravens and Steelers coming up.

    The Steelers look like bumble bees out there on the field. Not a good look.

    I like those alternates a lot! Of course I wouldn't like them if they were their regular uniforms.

    I'm reasonably sure my Rams lost today because they went with that ridiculous navy over navy.

    Or because Sam Bradford is not very good.

    I'm still holding out hope for Bradford, but he certainly hasn't been as good as everyone hoped. I don't think Aaron Rodgers could have put up good numbers on last year's Rams team, so I try to disregard that season. Also, he's had three different offensive coordinators in three years. And this year's receivers just can't get any separation at all, so his only option is often Amendola.

    That said, there are lots of quarterbacks who succeed in bad circumstances.

    Him not putting up great numbers or leading the team to victory often is one thing. But whenever I watch him play, like in yesterday's Jets game, he makes poor decisions and poor throws. The interception he threw was laughable, and he almost threw an identical one. A couple of times he threw a "quick out" on a three-step drop when the guy was covered and lost the team yards. Other times he missed easy throws or made them more difficult for his receivers.

    I didn't get to see all of yesterday's game because I was on the road, but all the things you describe are very familiar, unfortunately.

    They could have, but there was no realistic prospect of trading Bradford.

    Also, UniWatch commented this morning on the ridiculous navy over navy look throughout the NFL this weekend.

    True. But even supposing that they could've pawned Bradford off on someone else--difficult because he was drafted before the new rookie contract scale, which means he's making something like 4x what other guys drafted in his position are--they would now be without a starting DT and a starting CB, both of whom were acquired with draft picks from trading first rounders with the 'Skins.

    I've seen enough of Bradford playing against the Redskins the past couple of seasons to believe that he can be an elite QB with a decent supporting cast. He is playing with arguably the worst o-line + WRs in the league.
