NFL Notes: Terrell Owens Controversy Again, Lane Kiffin Fired

Cowgirls_medium T.O. is at is again. After the Cowboys lost to the Redskins on Sunday, T.O. basically blamed the loss on Tony Romo for not getting T.O. the ball more. He left out that he was targeted for 20 plays (18 times thrown to with 7 catches and 2 rushing attempts), and that he dropped a couple of those passes. T.O. is a great receiver, and very important to the success of a few of my fantasy football teams, but I have no idea why anyone would want him on their team. What he brings on the field is not worth what he brings off of it.

Raiders_medium Al Davis finally fired Lane Kiffin, and as only Davis would do, told him over the phone. On top of that, he informed Kiffin that he would not pay him the rest of his contract. Anyone who takes that job deserves what they get. The Raiders will not be relevant again until Davis is no longer in control of the team.

Rams_medium The Rams also fired Scott Linehan. I don't understand how a team that has Marc Bulger, Torry Holt and Steven Jackson can be so bad. Hey Jacob Bell and Drew Bennett, I hope you are enjoying yourself out there.

Jags_medium As was mentioned yesterday, thoughts and prayers go out to Richard Collier. It was announced yesterday the he is paralyzed from the waist down and had to get his left leg amputated. Stuff like this reminds you how trivial football is.

Steelers_medium The Pittsburgh Steelers walk away from last night's game having lost rookie running back Rashard Mendenhall and starting right guard Kendall Simmons. That game last night was one of the most physical games I have seen in a while.

Mcm_medium Two site things: Does anyone want to be in charge of looking up the different power rankings from around the web and writing a post about them? Let me know if you are interested.

And here is the poll that was asked for..
