    That O-line is actually not quite so sad-sack anymore. In the middle of the pack rushing-wise, and only 5 sacks in 5 games.

    You know your line is respectible when you can safely cut Brandon Gorin.

    I think that Russ Grimm has something to do with this...

    And to think, it was between him and Brady with that sixth round pick. Oh how different things could have been...

    Watch out for the Cards in the NFC. They are playing pretty good football. Not top tier yet, but getting better.

    Great move picking up Rattay since Warner has a tendency to get hurt a bit too often.

    As noted above, the line is becoming a strength quickly. Picked up Brown this year in 1st and Duece Lateui last year in the early 2nd are both playing well. Grimm definitely has something to do about it. Look at their rushing totals. Not too shabby at all.

    Things are looking up in the desert.

    Might sneak in playoffs this year, but probably not. Next year should be players in the NFC.

    Out of laziness:

    With the spate of QBs falling, who else is on the corner looking for day labor?

    Tim Couch's name circulated this year. Rattay has surfaced for air.

    Does anybody follow or know what other QBs are still floating in the zeitgeist?

    Simply curious.

    I agree. I had hope for them last year. Slowly but surely for them. If Leinart can return and focus, they have a fledgling nucleus on both sides, strangely enough.

    i wondered why teams like miami, or arizone couldn't lure drew bledsoe out of retirement. he still has an NFL arm. but he also has the legs of a statue.
