Chargers Team Doctor Punctured Tyrod Taylor's Lung: Broadcasters during the Chargers/Chiefs game on Sunday were mystified by the last-minute absence of quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who wasn't on the injury list but did not make the start. Coach Anthony Lynn revealed that Taylor missed the game because the team doctor accidentally punctured his lung while administering a painkiller injection for Taylor's cracked ribs. He's out indefinitely.

Michael Powell follows the sad, dirty trail of big time high school and college ball: For some prominent college coaches, the disheartening math seems to go as follows: win wherever and however you can, and hope that not all of your prior triumphs end up getting vacated.

Diego Maradona has died

He could have stood in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shot somebody without getting a red card.

The age-old question in times of trouble is: "Who ya gonna call?"

And as NoMich knows, when it comes to QB's, the answer is: North Carolina State.

Hence, to enhance your holiday viewing experience, Ryan Finley will be under center for the snakebit Bengals and the immortal Mike Glennon will be taking the field for the Jags.

Jomboy reminded me that I hadn't checked out a Brett Kollmann clip in a while, so I watched his drink gripping deconstruction of former Texans GM Bill O'Brien.

I see that glitzy Kardashian accessory Tristan Thompson has agreed to relocate to the freewheeling, spontaneous home of the New England Boiled Dinner.

Isn't that a frightening thought? The word has pretty well fanned out to all corners about Harbaugh's issues by this point, but that may not stop the Fords from rushing in where angels fear to tread. They seem determined to learn things the hard way.

A lot of GM's understood that Patricia wasn't head coaching material when he got off the plane wearing a Goodell clown T shirt after the Pats beat the Falcons in the Super Bowl, but that didn't derail the Lions front office's headlong pursuit of mediocrity.

Think of the shutout as the team doing a public service on behalf of its fans. If the Texans beat the Loins decisively on Thursday, then the Matt Patricia situation should be more than clarified.

Maybe even clarified enough for the shilly-shallying Ford family.

Hard to believe that when I was a kid, Firestone was known for their "rubber meets the road" ad campaign. Martha Firestone Ford fell a country mile from that apple tree.

What does it do to the internal organs of NoMich when the Lions play the Panthers and someone has to lose?

I thought he went for the sleepy eyed Morrison and Kaminsky because he wanted his own Luc Longley.

Congratulations to crack executive Michael Jordan for continuing to have a hell of a week in Hornetville.

First he ropes in the Ball family on draft night, then he entices Hayward to join the crew.

I couldn't wait for Hayward to leave Boston, but did not anticipate the entertainment value he'd provide upon his departure. If you like laughing about dollar bills.

The amount of money Michael is paying Hayward is absurd. His overvaluation is up in the Juwan Howard area.

Michael must have thrown up part of his brain when he ate that Game 5 Salt Lake City pizza in 1997.

If he continues to be a profoundly inept celebrity financial wizard, he'll eventually be obliged to run for president.

Meddler, provocateur, virus downplayer, former Jets coach, and all purpose cartoon duck Lou Holtz has tested positive for COVID-19.

He was immediately classified as a high risk individual due to his ability to initiate a super spitter event.

Mark May could be reached for comment.

When they played at Clemson, that's when they were the real Carolina Panthers.

According to the mustard BBQ peeps.

Well, then I guess you won't have to personally escort Mr. B to the Skylight for chopped meat. He probably already knows about it.

Drew Brees is out at least a couple of weeks. So I assume we're going to see some Jameis 2.0

God forbid the Saints decide to keep trotting Taysom Hill out there to do his tired Tebow act instead.
At this point, any DL that allows yardage on those predictable Taysom tuck and carry plays should have to run several extra sets of stadium steps after practice.
