Starting in about an hour, I won't be posting through tomorrow (Monday) night, in observance of Yom Kippur.
Just a few thoughts between now and then:
*Tim Tebow is back in Gainesville. Apparently it's "only" a "minor" concussion. We'll see. I have a lot of thoughts about that, as you can imagine.
*See my latest BlogPoll Top 25 ballot in the post below. I'm big on Cincy, Houston, Iowa and Oregon; I'm down on Ole Miss, Penn State, Miami and Cal. Oh, and Boise in the AP's top 5: Big rant there.
*Congrats to the Lions breaking their epic losing streak -- I think that's the story of the weekend in the NFL. (The Rams are the new Lions! Oh, and fire Jim Zorn.)
*Yes, that includes Brett Favre's Hail Mary TD to lead the Vikings past the 49ers at the last second. (Although let's credit Greg Lewis -- wow, what a catch.)
*And, yes, that includes Mike Vick's return, which was overshadowed by Kevin Kolb's sick game (327 yards passing, 2 TDs passing, 0 INTs, 1 TD rushing). Vick Who?
*I think I shallowly believe in "statement wins" -- the Pats made one today by beating the Falcons.
*As argued last week, the Jets are for real. The Titans' season may be over already.
*Fantasy Stud of the Day: Maurice Jones-Drew (119 yards and 3 TDs), reminding everyone why he was the consensus No. 2 overall fantasy draft prospect behind Peterson.
Have an easy fast, to those of you who are doing that. Back tomorrow evening.
