Monday's A.M. Hot Clicks: Steve Smith Gets Revenge, SNL burns NFL

Hello friends, Brendan Maloy here. Andy is still out scouring the nation for the finest in artisanal internet links, so I will be handling this morning's Hot Clicks. Feel free to find me over @MaloyBrendan on Twitter

NFL Notes

Saturday Night Live torched the NFL in its season premiere ... The Ravens' Steve Smith followed through on his promise to light up his former team and his tipped pass may have been Sunday's most exciting play... Bears WR Brandon Marshall put a nasty shake on Packers DB Davon House but it was not enough to prevent a Green Bay rout... Geno Smith took out some anger on a fan after a Jets loss ... Reggie Wayne got fined by the league's fashion police ... J.J. Watt's scored another touchdown, this one on an interception return. Check out more of the Week 4 action in this gallery. (See the full-size version here.)

College Football Notes

As usual,Andy Staples' Punt Pass and Pork andMartin Rickman's Between the Hashes covered everything you could want to know about Saturday's college football action, but I would be remiss not to give a little extra love to the Ohio State strength coach with the tackle of the year on a rowdy fan. This week's College Gameday crowd also featured some of the season's best signs so far, with the top honor going to "I'm Fat Lets Party"

Hot Clicks tribute to the past loves of Derek Jeter continues this morning with a look at former MTV VJ Vanessa Lachey (née Minnillo). The 1998 Miss Teen USA winner is currently expecting her second child with singer Nick Lachey, but somehow manages to look identical to her reign on Total Request Live.

Golden State debuted a new version of the much-talked-about sleeved jerseys and the internet was quick to point out that the unis resemble a bag of garbage, which was probably not the team's intent.
