"As we have previously indicated, it is in the best interest of both Larry and the Chiefs that Larry focuses his attention on addressing his personal issues. At present, we do not believe Larry can contribute to our team on the field until those issues are resolved."
Posted: News NFL.com Staff Tags: Inside the numbers, Week 8
A quick look at some of the interesting numbers from the Week 8 early games:
*Ravens rookie QB Joe Flacco had his first career reception, a 43-yard catch from backup QB Troy Smith. It marks the longest reception by a quarterback since Stats, Inc. began tracking the stat in 1991.
Cardinals QB Kurt Warner posted his 44th career 300-yard game, completing 35 of 49 passes for 381 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in a 27-23 loss to the Panthers.
Cowboys WR Roy Williams recorded his first career TD with Dallas, but DE DeMarcus Ware ended his NFL-record tying streak of 10 consecutive games with a sack.
*Some impressive personal numbers from the Redskins’ 25-17 win over Detroit: RB Clinton Portis rushed for 126 yards on 24 carries, joining O.J. Simpson as the only players since 1960 with two separate streaks of five-plus games with 120-plus rush yards. QB Jason Campbell had his fourth career 300-yard passing game and has not thrown an INT in 252 attempts dating back to last season. WR Santana Moss had a receiving TD and a punt return TD, the first Redskin with that distinction.
*Dolphins QB Chad Pennington had his sixth career 300-yard passing game and WR Ted Ginn his first career 100-yard receiving game in a 25-16 win over the Bills.
In a game where the Patriots had no penalties for the first time in franchise history, WR Randy Moss recorded his 58th career 100-yard receiving game (third all-time), and Rams rookie WR Donnie Avery had his first career 100-yard game.
*Andy Reid became the 37th head coach to reach 100 career wins in Philadelphia’s 27-14 win over Atlanta. He is now 10-0 in his career after a bye week. QB Donovan McNabb became the 8th QB in NFL history with 3,000 career rushing yards. … Falcons WR Roddy White had his third straight game with 100-plus yards and at least one TD.

It was over when ... Philip Rivers' desperation pass on the game's final play fell incomplete. The Chargers were threatening on their previous possession but Jonathan Vilma intercepted Rivers' pass to Chris Chambers, halting the drive with 1:09 left in the fourth quarter.
Game ball Drew Brees played against his former team and the high-priced quarterback they drafted to replace him for the first time since joining the Saints in 2006. And he seemed to relish the opportunity. Brees passed for 339 yards and three touchdowns.
Key stat The Chargers were unable to get to Brees, and did not record a sack.
Noteworthy The official attendance was 83,226. ... LaDainian Tomlinson rushed for 105 yards, surpassing 100-yards for only the second time this season, and first time since Week 4. ... Brees has thrown for 200 yards in 12 consecutive games, the longest streak in the NFL."

Former Head Coach said this about Javon Walker:
“There’s a couple of balls there that we would have liked him toNow even Elway is talking about it, his quotes:
come up with, That’s discouraging because he was paid an awful lot of
money, paid like one of the top five receivers in
the NFL. We need him to make those plays.”
"The fastest way to ruin a quarterback is to put him on a bad team, with a bad line, with no weapons, with no continuity in the coaching staff...That pretty much describes the current Raiders. The game has passed Al Davis by, and he’s the only one who doesn’t know it. Every time the Raiders get a good coach — Mike Shanahan, Jon Gruden, Norv Turner, etc. — who doesn’t buy into Al’s outdated program, he fires him. It’s this kind of organizational instability that can ruin a quarterback, like the Texans ruined David Carr and the Browns ruined Tim Couch. A young quarterback, especially a No. 1 guy with the weight of a city’s expectations on his shoulders, can wilt. A young quarterback needs a calm, steady influence on and off the field. The first three years for an NFL quarterback are rocky no matter what. He needs a coach to teach him the game of football and a kind of father figure to nurture him and get him through the tough times off the field. Too bad JaMarcus didn’t have the leverage I had in 1983; then he could’ve avoided the Raiders all together. …I feel for JaMarcus. Physically, he has it all. He’s an unbelievable talent — strong arm, tall, big. In the right situation, he could have a great NFL career. In Oakland, he has almost no chance.”

Michael Pittman had a solid day filling in for the inactive Selvin Young. He finished with 109 yards on 20 rushes, adding three catches for 16 yards as well. Brandon Marshall was the team's leading receiver with nine catches for 98 yards.
The loss snapped the Broncos' NFL-leading six-game winning streak at home, but the team still sits at 4-2 atop the AFC West standings." As always here are some photos from the game:

Make this the stop for all your news on the Denver Broncos!!
We respect and support the decision of the commissioner, I regret that this issue has brought negative attention to the Cowboys and the NFL. -Cowboys owner Jerry Jones (AP Photo by Ross D. Franklin)
NFL.com also reported: "Adam Jones was suspended for the entire 2007 season for multiple violations of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy. He was traded by Tennessee to Dallas for a foruth-round draft pick in April, and was then reinstated by Goodell on Aug. 28 after being allowed to practice and play in preseason games with the Cowboys. "
So it looks like the Cowboys may have had a "hit'n miss" with Jones but it's to soon to say, and he did do a nice job in the few games he played.
In other more important news the Cowboys have also lost Tony Romo, for up to a month! This has turned the fantasy world upside down! (AGAIN) At the beginning of the season Tom Brady was lost for the year-that killed the fantasy world. Guys laughed at me when I drafted Jay Cutler with my first pick, and now I'm laughing at them who wasted their early pics on Tom and Tony. NFL.com Wire reported: "Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo fractured a finger on his throwing hand and could be out for up to four weeks."
"He couldn't grip the ball, He probably should have gone out of the game. He had sprained his finger before, and thought that's what it was when he couldn't grip the ball." -Wade Philips
T.O. would not comment on the news. This now leaves Brad Johnson to be Ownes QB. And I'm expecting things may not go so well with them the next couple of weeks of the season.
"We have complete confidence in him. Our team, I think, will rally around him. ... Brad had a good preseason. He's ready to play."-Coach Wade Philips
This could really hurt the Cowboys season. With the new WR Roy Williams Brad may not be too bad-MAYBE
