No one but our favorite GM/Coach combo: Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson! While Brett Favre spent his bye week sunning on the beach of his swamp down in Mississippi, Aaron Rodgers was busy playing hard, but lofting ducks with his lame right shoulder. The Pack has fallen below .500, and while that may not be all Rodgers fault (Paging Ryan Grant! Paging Ryan Grant!), the media dogs have to be licking their chops while the Packers fans are definitely forming a posse to string up their front office. Their IQ this week sinks to 50, begging the question: what exactly do those to have in their heads? I don't know, but it doesn't smell real great.

The ESPN AFC South blog has two Colts tidbits. The part on fixing the Colts offense is largely gibberish. Manning is fine. You can see it. The offensive line is really awful right now.

Phil B says the news on Hayden is ominous and that Phil Wheeler might start this weekend.
