Yes, yes, ESPN and FAIL are synonymous but this one is worth calling out.

Studs & Duds
- No mention of Matt Cassel who a) was benched and b) had a 14.6 passer rating. For such a highly touted signing, you'd think he would have garnered "Dud" status. His previous low was a 25.3 against the Chuggers (1st game)

In Cassel's defense, his receivers didn't exactly help him out here....

DUDS

Tom Brady

Tom Brady: Brady a dud? It doesn't happen very often, but Brady qualified on Sunday, despite throwing for 352 yards in the Patriots' 22-21 loss in Miami. Trying to extend New England's 21-19 lead late in the fourth quarter, Brady was intercepted in the end zone by rookie Vontae Davis. After Miami kicked the go-ahead field goal with 1:02 remaining, Brady threw a second pick, which sealed New England's second straight loss.


Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson: Another player who hardly ever finds himself on this list, Peterson was shut down by the Cardinals. Peterson rushed for a season-low 19 yards on 13 carries (a 1.5-yard average) in the Vikings' 30-17 loss to Arizona. Peterson had rushed for at least 55 yards in every game this season.


Shaun Suisham

Shaun Suisham: The Redskins were headed toward an emotional home victory over the undefeated Saints. But Suisham couldn't close the deal. With the Redskins leading 30-23 late in regulation, Suisham was wide right on a gimme 23-yard field goal attempt that would have iced the victory for Washington. The miss opened the door for Brees and the Saints, who rallied for an overtime victory.

Josh Freeman

Josh Freeman: Freeman threw five interceptions -- three near the goal line -- in the Buccaneers' 16-6 loss to Carolina. The rookie's biggest error came on fourth-and-goal from the Panthers' 2-yard line with Tampa Bay trailing 13-6 early in the fourth quarter. Freeman's pass into the end zone was picked off by Chris Harris.

Rams

The Rams' offense: Besides Steven Jackson, there are very few bright spots for the Rams. Jackson rushed for 112 yards in St. Louis' 17-9 loss to Chicago, but the Rams' offense was feeble as a whole. The Rams were 2-of-14 on third-down conversions, and QB Kyle Boller threw for just 113 yards and got sacked three times.

Cassel's application for a lifetime DUD pass is still pending, but his chances for acceptance look good.

My STUD pass was approved at birth.

Hillis for All Day - straight up trade. Who's with me? Oh you're right, they should toss in Rice because of Hillis' upside and breakaway speed. ;)

The Vikings would be retarded to pass up this deal. Hillis rushed for 6.7 ypc, AD rushed for 1.5 ypc, there it is! IN BLACK AND WHITE! Hillis is a better running back! Hillis is a beast!!!

It's nice to see the Broncos' running game be listed as one of the "studs", this week. The running game NEEDS to shred that Colts defense...

so you are saying in math terms that White (hillis)> Black (Peterson)? This is exactly what is true. We whities rule (sorry Jason in LA and LeLo Lang)! Dont do the deal Bowlen or you are a gutless drunk.

When someone turns into a vomit spewing poltergeist, you chain it to the bed and you leave. If you are dumb enough to go back, why should it surprise you that it is still there spewing up vomit and twisting its head in all directions?
