Streaking hasn't been this popular since college...
 

Heading into Week 15, seven NFL teams boast winning streaks of four games or more: the 12-1 Steelers (11 in a row), the 10-3 Chargers (seven), the 12-1 Patriots (six), the 10-3 Colts (six), the 6-7 Panthers (five), the 12-1 Eagles (five) and the 7-6 Bills (four). And call it a coincidence, but all seven of these franchises are streaking toward the playoffs, with Pittsburgh, New England, Indianapolis and Philadelphia having already clinched their divisions...

"Ogbogu" isn't just something you'd say to scare the pants off your neighbor - it's the name of a defensive end in Dallas. And with five sacks so far in 2004, seven-year veteran Eric Ogbogu is scaring the tights off opposing offensive lineman...

During the Redskins/Eagles game this past Sunday night, ESPN analyst and former Redskin Joe Theismann called a third quarter reception by Laveranues Coles, during which the Washington wide-out broke a couple of tackles en route to a first down, "one of the all-time greatest plays...of the year." In a related story, Joe Theismann is officially one of all-time dumbest commentators...of the week...

Terrell Owens might be a child trapped in a man's body off the field, but on it he's nothing short of a man-child. Through thirteen games, the Eagles wide-out ranks fifth in the NFL in receptions (75), second in yards (1,176) and first in touchdowns (14). In fact, Owens has a chance - albeit a long shot - to become the first receiver to lead the league in all three major statistical categories since Jerry Rice in 1990, when the 49er legend grabbed 100 balls for 1,502 yards and 13 touchdowns...

Legend has it that it's harder to cover a man than it is to run a route in the NFL. But if the numbers tell the story, two-way star Troy Brown is proving otherwise in New England. The wide receiver/cornerback extraordinaire ranks at the bottom of the league with 13 receptions but near the top (29th) with three interceptions. Brown has had all the right answers on offense, defense and even special teams for the defending Super Bowl champs, although one question remains: Can he cover himself?

Like a superhero defeated by his own powers, the Suns must feel betrayed every time they lose to the Heat...

David Ortiz was right all along: "Pedro ain't going to no Mets." While the rest of Red Sox Nation considered this confirmation of a return to Boston for Martinez, as a linguist proficient in broken English, I knew better. When you read between the lines, you'll see that Ortiz didn't mean that his Dominican compadre wasn't going to the Mets. Quite the contrary: he meant that Pedro wasn't not going to the Mets. Or, to make a double negative positive, that Pedro was going to the Mets. Literally speaking, I'm Dean Christopher...

Can't that be said every week?
