ThursDay in Football

Coming as the least surprising story of the year, Tim Tebow, Sam Bradford, and Colt McCoy were named as Heisman finalists. They should have thrown this guy in the mix just to shake it up a little.

Before the season started, West Virginia quarterback Pat White probably hoped he'd be in the news for some sort of BCS bowl game related story. Not being the first player to commit to January's Senior Bowl. But, I guess any publicity is good publicity, and if you're being talked about on this blog, well, you've already won.

Penn State back-up quarterback Pat Devlin has had it in State College and is transferring...somewhere. Since he's from Pennsylvania and Penn State didn't work out, maybe Pitt? Everybody get down with the mustache. Wait, that didn't come out right.

A thumb injury is going to keep Jaguars running back Fred Taylor out of the remainder of the season, which begs the question: Fred Taylor is still playing professional football?

Kellen Winslow has made official his desire to stay with the Browns. Which is pretty much the exact opposite of every indication he's made all year long.

Jerry Jones is backpedaling all over the statements he made previously, questioning Marion Barber's toughness. I'd say Jones was eating crow, but, I don't know, he seems more likely to eat some sort of possum stew.

Try a little Jones family burgoo. The secret ingredient is armadillo.
