** Hedgie thanks TG for editing and content input this week **
NFL MAN UP award: Jeff Reed, Pittsburgh Steelers
“I’m just embarrassed, you know, because these guys fight their tails off to wind the game. If there is one player that can single-handedly lose the game, I’ll take credit for it.”
Jeff missed 2X44 yard FG’s in Q4 of the Steeler’s 17-14 loss to Chicago.
NFL PRECISION ACCURACY Award: Kurt Warner broke the NFL’s single game completion percentage record after going 24 of 26 yards with 2 TD passes.
92.3% ACCURATE…no anesthesia, no gloves.
QUOTE of the WEEK Award:
Knickname: “SHUTDOWN” NEON DEION RANK: one of the top 3 Cornerbacks in NFL
"If he went to the bathroom, I went too. I covered him any way I could. When he went to the sideline...I sat right across from him wherever he was sitting on the bench.”
JETS Darelle Revis on covering PATRIOT Randy Moss
SAY WHAT AGAIN?!?!?! AWARD:
"All week he was talking about being a shutdown corner, but there really are no shutdown corners in the league because they have help most of the game. I probably could be a shutdown corner if I had (Patriots S Brandon) Meriweather over the top for the whole game. I think I could be a corner."- Randy Moss

Didja know that Eric Mangini, Head Coach of the Cleveland Browns, was fined $25,000 of the $125,000 the Jets had to pay for NOT putting Brett Favre on the disabled list during the final month of last season.
