Rams returning to Los Angeles?
According to reports, St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke purchased a 60-acre lot in Inglewood, Calif., this past month. This news, along with the Rams' ongoing struggle to upgrade their current stadium, the Edward Jones Dome, in St. Louis has led to speculation that the team could return to Los Angeles. Would you like to see the Rams return to L.A.? Is the absence of an NFL team in the country's second-largest market a black eye for the NFL?
Worrying sign for the Colts?
On one hand, it's just one game. On the other hand, great teams don't often get blown out at home -- especially by opponents that enter with a .333 winning percentage. But that's what happened to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, with Andrew Luck & Co. losing 38-8 to the St. Louis Rams. This comes two weeks after the team lost leading receiver Reggie Wayne. It also comes for a team with little in the way of an AFC South challenge.
When you've got a good quarterback, you've got a chance to win in the NFL. When you don't, you change starters. Maybe you sign a free agent off the street as insurance. And maybe you take inspiration from Batman and illuminate the night sky with the Brett signal -- as in Brett Favre -- like the Rams reportedly did.
Now, don't expect live reports from Hattiesburg, Miss., as Favre says he's retired. For good. Really. But it makes us wonder how confident the Rams are in backup Kellen Clemens replacing the injured Sam Bradford. The Rams aren't alone in this boat -- not when the Browns are about to trot out their third starting QB of the season and the Vikings are choosing between Josh Freeman and Christian Ponder.
Meet Me In St. Louis?
Brett Favre gained a reputation for wavering on retirement, but he was firm Thursday that his career is over.
Is that Brett Favre's music?
The Rams reportedly reached out to Favre despite the fact it's been nearly three years since he has played in an NFL game.
Valhalla I am coming
Matt Cassel, center, quarterbacked the Vikings' only win of the season. But Christian Ponder, right, is set to start if Josh Freeman can't.
Jason Campbell was passed over the first time the Browns changed quarterbacks. He'll get his chance Sunday against the Chiefs.

NFL Week 8 -- Seahawks at Rams
This isn't exactly a Broncos-at-home-versus-Jaguars situation, but things sure could get ugly on "Monday Night Football" in St. Louis. The Rams are a deceptive 3-4, and just lost quarterback Sam Bradford for the season. The Seattle Seahawks (6-1) aren't cruising every Sunday, but they're getting it done -- and have a fearsome defense just ready to exploit a weak QB (Kellen Clemens, in this case). How bad will it be?
