WednesDay in Football

(Or football writing, at the very least.)

Stop the presses: Oregon's getting new uniforms. And guess what? They're kind of ridiculous.

According to WCCO in the Twin Cities (twin cities? I don't really know if that should be capitalized and, frankly, I don't feel like finding out) Brett Favre has agreed to a contract with the Vikings and will be in camp in late July. Frankly, I'm looking forward to at least one of the Packers/Vikings game ending with a late, back-breaking Brett Favre interception and not being super pissed about it.

ESPN has an interesting article about the increase of big cornerbacks. Thing is, if watching football has taught me anything, it's that if defenses start loading up on bigger, more physical corners, offenses will start loading up on smaller, faster receivers. So look for an ESPN article in about four years talking about the trend of teams converting these big corners to safety and drafting small, shifty burners at cornerback.

Action Football!'s prediction for next season's Oregon uniforms:
