We tried to keep it short, so rolling out Marvin Jones, replacements for Jordan Cameron (concussion) and throwbacks to players like Jordan Todman and company couldn’t be done. Of course, as this Championship Week rolls on, numerous players are being shut down.

Matt Schaub is back into the mix for the Texans. Ben Tate is also reportedly being shut down (Dennis Johnson is your HR RB pickup). You’ve got EJ Manuel out for the Bills, thereby thrusting Thad Lewis back onto the field against the Dolphins. And, we await word on Adrian Peterson, Wes Welker and countless would-be championship week heroes.

I begin with the Jay Cutler rant and his advantageous matchup against the Philadelphia defense in what is supposed to be summer-like weather. I cut myself off from the full “Why Jay Cutler is the right starter in Chicago” rant to keep the line moving.
