  1. It’s time to meet the Arizona Cardinals Defense.  You proabably know who Patrick Peterson is.  You might know Andrian Wilson.  Possibly Darnell Dockett.  But do you know Calais Campbell ? How about Daryl Washington?  The Cardinals may not have household names on defense but they are talented unit.  After the Cardinals upset win over New England, I’m sure Tom Brady knows who they are.
  2. Aqib Talib’s Rough Day.   Everyone has been talking about proper victory formation etiquette after the New York Giants thrilling come from behind victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, over shadowing the miserable day cornerback Aqib Talib had.  Talib shadowed Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks the entire game and was left with grill marks.  Nicks finished with 10 catches for 199 yards including plays of 40 and 50 yards.
  3. Is Reggie Bush A Late Bloomer? When Miami Dolphins’ running back Reggie Bush was drafted in 2006, many compared him to Barry Sanders.  After Bush struggled as a traditional tailback early in his career with the Saints, he gained a reputation as being soft.  Well now in his seventh season, Bush is looking like the franchise running back he was when he dominated in college.  He had his first 1000 yard rushing season last year, averaging six yards a carry.   This season he isn’t showing any signs of slowing down, averaging 120 yards per game over the first two weeks.  Maybe all Bush need was some time.
