Not sure what Chad Henne is smirking about here, he knows he plays for the Jaguars, right? He instantly looks like every bad guy from a movie based in college. He could easily be the president of the Alpha Betas and quarterback at Adams College if they ever want to do a remake of “Revenge of the Nerds.”

Week 3 is nearly in the books, how are you feeling? We still have a great Monday night game left, but let’s look back at the wek that was.
Welcome to the Monday Nightmare. When I stated this feature three years ago, it was to provide an outlet for those whose fantasy weeks were ruined on Monday. The impetus being, I lead the world in being worked over on Monday night. Seriously, I’m considering a fantasy league which will outlaw Monday nights.
Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning might be giving hope, but he’s not back to his old self.

The 2012 Denver Broncos have the makeup to be the best team that Peyton Manning has ever been a part of. This is not because of their explosive offense, or impressive but rather the emergence of their defense as one of the league’s premier units. In Manning’s days as a Colt, he had a defense that was referred to as a ‘play ahead’ defense. That is not the case in Denver, as this Broncos’ defense is primed for success regardless of the situation. The quarterback position was the missing piece to this team in 2011, and now they have one of the league’s best ever.
With the start of the 2012 season, NFL history — on both sides of the ball — is in the making. Watch how players and teams etched their way into record books in Week 1. Ed Reed Move over, Rod Woodson. Ed Reed is now the all-time leader in interception return yards with 1,497. ————————————————————————————————————————————– Peyton Manning In his return to the NFL, the Broncos quarterback threw his 400th and 401st touchdown passes. Manning is now third on the Passing TD Leaders list behind Brett Farve (#1) and Dan Marino (#2). ————————————————————————————————————————————– New England Patriots With a 34-13 defeat of the Tennessee Titans, the New England Patriots have won their last 9 season opening games, the longest current winning streak in the NFL.

So let me see if I have this straight, Mike Shanahan said Alfred Morris was going to start for his team and then he went out and had the most carries of the weekend? Surprisingly, that’s not the biggest Washington Redskins’ story of the weekend.
