There's a lot of interesting NFL stuff out there today.
Roy Williams is going to start tipping pizza delivery people (Fanhouse). I've got a coupon for a free pizza sitting at home right now (it just became valid October 1). I'm excited.
Michael David Smith compares Brett Favre to other great QBs (FO on Fox). He says both Marino and Tarkenton are better than Favre. I smile.
The Vikings schedule actually gets easier, and they could get some wins (Fanhouse). When I projected the season, I had the Vikings winning their first four games, then losing their next five. But now three of the next four games are against currently 1-3 teams.
Evidently Tarvaris Jackson will start again (Fanhouse). That's good--it's not as if Kelly Holcomb has given the Vikes a reason not to go back to Jackson, as I thought he might. Jackson can throw hard.
Michael Vick took an eight hour class from PETA (Sports Illustrated). Cripes. I'm an animal rights guy, and even I cringe at the idea of an eight hour class from PETA.
Marc Bulger is out; Scott Linehan favorite Gus Frerotte is in (Sports Illustrated).
Dr. Z's power rankings usually include amusing banter (Sports Illustrated).
The Vikings continue to defy CHFF's Big Play Index: they're +8, tied with 4-0 Dallas and 3-1 Pittsburgh, and just behind 4-0 New England (Cold, Hard Football Facts).
My impression of Bart Starr has always been that he's a decent QB that got to play on a great team, but in CHFF's comparison of Starr and Favre, it's clear Starr has the statistics to measure up with the greats (Cold, Hard Football Facts).
