Rolling out Week 11 waiver wire links

The only thing more amazing than the finish to the Colts vs Pats game? Randy Moss's beard. A quick shot of him sans helmet last night showed an impressive beard that caused my husband to muse, "is there any evidence that Randy Moss and Jesus are not one in the same?" which of course caused me to crack up (not intended to offend anyone, fyi...). Anyway, what an amazing game - let's get it all out there: yes, I was pulling for the Colts (my husband is a Knoxville, TN native and thus a huge Peyton fan) but I personally felt that the 4th and 2 call was incredibly ballsy and incredibly good. Would I have done it? Hell no, not a chance, but that's just one of the many reasons that Belichick is the evil mastermind of New England and I am not. And keep in mind that if it had worked there would be a parade in Boston this morning honoring Belichick's genius. Now what we can all hope for is an equally entertaining rematch for the AFC Championship game. If you'd like to see why Advanced NFL Stats' Brian Burke thinks the call was a great one, see what he has to say on the Fifth Down.

Meanwhile throughout the rest of the league there were countless injuries this week. Including one to Kyle Orton, which caused my Broncos to the Skins. I know, I know, I can barely even form coherent sentences after that one. But truth be told, the Skins are one of my favorite teams (hey, I grew up outside of DC!), and I've been feeling badly for them this whole season. I did not see the game, just followed the stats and highlights, so I don't know for sure how it all went down. But I know this - the Broncos are in a world of trouble.

Onto today's links:

Don't forget to get your voice heard in the 1st Annual FFLibrarian Readers' Choice poll - it's still up for about 2 more weeks and while I've already heard from over 500 of you, I'm hoping for even more!

Sorry about your Broncos. My Pats let me down, even before the ill-fated 4th and 2 call. I know Faulk always comes through in that situation, but if they had to make the call, which I didn't agree with, I would have liked the ball in the hands of Wes Welker.

Thanks for the link. Tons of injuries this weekend. Crazy stuff.

As a Vikings fan, I first suspected that Moss and Jesus were one in the same his rookie year. Then when he 'mooned' Packers fans while handing Green Bay a post-season loss after the Vikings were swept in the regular season, I almost became a believer.

Then Adrian Peterson happened.
