  • After the Broncos released quarterback Kyle Orton on Tuesday, it looked as though the Bears suddenly had a chance to upgrade their situation at quarterback. They put in a waiver claim for him, but so did the Chiefs. Since Kansas City has a worse record and higher waiver priority, Orton is now a Chief.
  • After missing out on Orton, the Bears decided to sign Josh McCown, a Mike Martz favorite and former Lion.
  • Troy Aikman is a fan of Matthew Stafford's gloves. He talked about how the gloves in his time never worked well for him, but he said he would probably wear the ones Stafford is using if he was still playing.
  • Jon Gruden did a mock "NBA-to-NFL player draft" during Monday Night Football this week. In it, he had LeBron James playing wide receiver for the Lions. That would certainly be interesting.
  • Barry Sanders was recently honored as part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame's "Hometown Hall of Famer" series.
  • Acme Packing Company took a look back at the Lions-Packers rivalry by doing a post about games in Detroit and games on Thanksgiving.
  • How ridiculous is the NFL sometimes? The league fined Panthers cornerback Captain Munnerlyn $5,000 because the shoes he wore against the Lions had "too much blue."
  • Both the Packers and 49ers could clinch a playoff spot this week.
