1 I think I like Kurt Warner's sense of responsibility. At a time when the league is manic about head injuries, Warner (below) took himself out of the game against the Rams after a middling blow to the head and didn't return. "I just wanted to be smart,'' he said. "I didn't feel perfect, so I just wanted to be cautious with it.'' The league should hold up Warner as an example of when players should stay out of games.
2 I think Terrell Owens has to be sitting at home amidst the wreckage of the Buffalo season thinking, "See how it would have all been different if they came to me more often?'' His nine-catch, 197-yard, histrionic-free performance featured a 98-yard catch-and-run TD from Ryan Fitzpatrick. Alas, the Bills still lost to the Jaguars, 18--15.
2 I think if you're Jets coach Rex Ryan, you have to sit quarterback Mark Sanchez. The game is just too overwhelming for him right now. His last pick Sunday in Foxborough against the Patriots was just plain stupid, if not panicky.
