Post Week 3 NFL News: Bucs fans rejoice! The team has finally deciced to yank Byron Leftwich and replace him with Josh Johnson. Rams QB Marc Bulger sustained an injury to his rotator cuff Sunday. Look for Kyle Boller to replace him. Dolphins QB Chad Pennington may have a tear in his shoulder. I hope not, because Chad Henne who replaced him, looked like absolute @$#!! I bet the ‘Phins are wishing they had Sage Rosenfels back. Rams WR Laurent Robinson has an MCL issue which may cause im to miss quite some time. If the Rams WR corps weren’t thin already, this is really bad news for them. Maybe they should just go with the “Wildcat” and have RB Steven Jackson play QB, RB and WR?

Bad News for Skins: Redskins Right Guard Randy Thomas suffered a torn biceps in Sunday’s win over the Rams and is likely out for the season. This will surely hurt the Redskins run game as he was a great run blocker for Clinton Portis. - 9/20

The Chicago Bears suffered a huge blow as they have lost LB Brian Urlacher for the season with a dislocated wrist. - 9/13

Article: David A. Lane talks about the Washington Redskins as this year’s Best NFL Sleeper Team - 9/7

Trade: The Oakland Raiders have acquired Richard Seymour from the New England Patriots in exchange for the Raiders 2011 first round draft pick. The pick is likely to be a top 10 pick based on the Raiders recent play. An odd move for a linebacker that is 30 years old and in the last year of his contract. - 9/7

Professional Sports Handicapper David A. Lane makes his 2009 NFC Predictions. - 9/4

Bad Luck: Bears 2nd string RB Kevin Jones suffered a torn ligament in his left ankle and is likely out for the year. Jones who is a fairly effective running back when healthy, has missed a ton of time in his career due to injuries. - 9/4

News and Notes: The Chiefs waived WR Amani Toomer after signing him only 3 weeks ago. The Lions have picked up QB’s Brooks Bollinger and Kevin O’Connell due to injuries to Daunte Culpepper and Drew Stanton. Rumor has it that the NYJ are looking to make a deal with Denver for WR Brandon Marshall. Bengals OT Andre Smith who had just signed with the team, is OUT with a fractured foot. It won’t need surgery though, so he may be back to practicing within a month. Troubled CB Pac Man Jones has agreed in principle to sign with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League. - 9/2
