Attaboy to Steelers kicker Chris Boswell. A week after getting concussed on a ridiculous fake field goal coaching call that almost cost Pittsburgh a game (and almost cost Chris his head), Boswell knocked it down the middle late Monday night to beat the Bears. That, after he nailed a 52-yarder earlier in the fourth quarter. See, Rice at least has produced tough kickers…
That’s four straight for a Steeler team that looked down and out a month ago. As we enter the back half of the season, all four AFC North horses are still in the race, although the Bengals seem to have thrown a shoe. And now that the Browns have lost about 190 pounds (OBJ), they will start to sprint.
Take heart, Bears fans. Yes, your comeback attempt fell short, but your rookie quarterback lost his deer in the headlights stare and replaced it with an assassin’s gaze. Nice work by Justin “Elysian” Fields.

Keeping an eye on…the Patriots. Although they’re playing real teams for the rest of the season.
In free fall…The Raiders. Video death threats?
Too late for…the Seahawks. But it’s nice to see Russell Wilson (and Russell Wilson’s bird) back.
Aaron Rodgers? Like a good neighbor, I’m “cutting back.”
I don’t know anything about Joey McGuire, other than that he is exceptionally well-wired in the Texas high school coaching fraternity. That at least bodes well for the Red Raiders.
We’ve all heard the definition of insanity, right? See, “Nebraska Cornhuskers.” There’s Frost on that pumpkin. Self-stuck in “neutral.”
Yoo-Dub Coach Jimmy Lake hit one of his players on the sideline. He gets an unpaid week off for now. But, TBC, would be my strong guess. HR is the 12th player in the huddle these days. And that’s largely a good thing.
Wanna play a little wide receiver for the Longhorns this week against Kansas? They have an opening. Joshua Moore has left the building through the “portal.” At the moment, “UT” stands for University of Tawdry. And we haven’t even talked about Pole Assassins, and rabid monkeys, and…
