Fleece & Flog's NFL Top Five: Week 12

We've all heard of the 7 second delay in live broadcasting. To censure any off-the-cuff remarks inappropriate for family viewing most networks send the live feed slighty staggered from the real event. After viewing the Bears game Sunday afternoon, I wonder if Rex Grossman is playing on a 2 second delay. His passes were consistently behind his receivers, his decisions a tad slow. Maybe he's taken one too many hits in the last few games and he and the doctors have missed diagnosing a concussion because his vision has been a tad foggy on the field.

Of the three interceptions and fumble, Rex seemed to be behind the time in each instance. Now rather than join the growing list of people calling for Rex's job, I suggest Lovie take Rex off slow motion and just let him hand off. Cedric Benson is finally showing up. Sadly for Bears fans, it'll be Rex or bust come playoff time. Can Bears fans handle that type of delay?

Onto the Top Five-----------------------------------
  1. Indianapolis Colts (10-1): Smashing Philly doesn't necessarily get you style points anymore. Doing it with nothing but a running game does.
  2. San Diego Chargers (9-2): Is is okay to call Ladanian Tomlinson LT? Isn't there something sacreligious about it? How does Lawrence Taylor feel about it? Can't we be more creative with our nicknames nowadays than to just call people by their initials?
  3. Baltimore Ravens (9-2): Maybe Brian Billick knows what he's doing. Since Jamal Lewis starting running, the Ravens have been unstoppable.
  4. Chicago Bears (9-2): Yeah, I know, I have the Bears ranked ahead of the team that just beat them, but the Pats just didn't impress me. Rex just disappointed me. Losing 17-13 on the road to a good team isn't all that bad. At home or on a neutral field, the Bears win.
  5. New England Patriots (8-3): I was, however, impressed with Tom Brady. He was as cool under pressure as any QB I've ever seen play. He's this generation's Joe Montana to Peyton Manning's Dan Marino.
The Bears can win the NFC North outright with a win against Minnesota this week in Chicago. Let's just hope Rex is on time for the game.

John Kruk once sold his number for a case of beer.
Tomlinson could secure the nickname for say, a dimebag?

(Is dimebag correct drug lingo for cocaine? My street vernacular continuing eduacation credit class is up and I can't get in until early next year.)
