Some football information on the periphery

Walter Cherepinsky of the wonderful fantasy sports site, Walter Football, has some interesting observations with a football focus buried away in his week 5 picks report.  I will reproduce them for you, but I also suggest you bookmark his site if you are at all interested in football, fantasy or NFL, in any fashion.

Some random NFL notes I can't put anywhere else: 

1. Radio host Big Daddy Graham on 610 WIP (Philly sports talk) brought up a great point on Sunday night. He criticized Jason Avant for pointing toward the sky after he made a 6-yard reception against the Redskins. Like really, you need to thank God after a measly 6-yard catch? And where was God when the ball slipped out of your hands on the Hail Mary attempt at the end of the game? Avant should have looked toward the ground and made a fist at Satan at that point. 

2. If you've never had a concussion before, take a look into the mindset of Jay Cutler on Sunday night. Cutler tweeted while he had a concussion, and he had some interesting things to say on his Twitter account. 

3. What's up with NBC's stupid halftime feature called the Tiny Football League? First of all, no one cares about this. Except maybe Brad Childress and various child molesters. And second, I'm uncomfortable listening to a guy call two little kids "smooth and sweet." Not that there's anything wrong with that - I guess.

I will admit to following @NotJayCutler and @KingLaserFace on Twitter, but the tweets from Oct. 3rd are truly priceless (see link in item 2 above).
