Considering the fact that T.O. called out the offensive coordinator this week, it was a question worth asking. "Yeah, I'm fine," T.O. said. "I'm fine." Jason Garrett danced around questions about his relationship with T.O. like Tony Romo eludes pass rushers. "Terrell is always a featured guy in our offense," Garrett said, "and he always will be."

Well, we found out this week what Angels free agent Mark Teixeira wants -- a home for the holidays. During Thursday's ESPN telecast of the Georgia Tech-Miami game in Atlanta, Teixeira told sideline reporter Erin Andrews he wants a baseball team for Christmas. "I don't want to put a timetable on it, but Christmas morning, I want to know where I'm going to be for the next couple of years," he said. "So hopefully, by Christmas, it will be done." Knowing agent Scott Boras' affinity for the big stage, I'm guessing Teixeira's headline-grabbing signing will be announced during baseball's winter meetings Dec. 8-11 in Las Vegas. What better place for the rich to get richer? But I don't think it will be with the Angels. If he were going to re-sign in Anaheim, I think it already would have happened. Just a gut feeling. Even the people I talk to in the organization don't seem optimistic. Teixeira would be ridiculed if he signed with perpetual losers such as the Baltimore Orioles or Washington Nationals, so my guess is he'll sign with the Boston Red Sox.
