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.
