One quick note before we get to the links.   It's ironic that just less than one week after he made a classy move by offering a moment of silence for Myra Kraft before last Sunday's game at the Coliseum in Oakland, Raiders owner Al Davis passed away on Saturday.  For any animosity Patriots fans may hold toward him, that's one memory that will certainly stand out in my mind for years to come.

Needless to say the odds are pretty good there will be a moment of silence for him today at Gillette Stadium, as he had a big impact on the game and will obviously be missed.

Anyway, let's get to this morning's top stories:
