Owens, as I have found, was also dropping passes in training camp, even the easy ones. Among the notable cuts, former Pittsburgh receiver Donte Stallworth released by New England and Vince Young being cut by Buffalo. Young was a disappointment as a backup to Michael Vick last and was previously exiled by Tennessee by inconsistant play on the field and several incidents off it. Young said he knew he would be cut after the Bills traded for Tavaris Jackson as a backup for Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Teams must make their final cuts to the regular season limit of 53 on Friday.

NFL and NFLPA reach agreement on a later trade deadline and an injured reserve clause exception. Trade deadline will be moved to Tuesday of week 8 of the season while a player put on injured reserve can be reactived later in the season if a designation for reactivation is put on that player immediately. Currently, if a player is put on injured reserve, he is done for the season. Teams will only be able to activate one player with restrictions.

A collective bargaining appeals panel has overturned the New Orleans bounty suspensions. All players are eligible to play immediately. Commissioner Roger Goodell can resuspend the players if he can prove there was intent to injure opposing players. What would make it difficult to prove?

Way to go 'Boys!!!

Dallas benefited from a gassed New York defensive from line that lacked depth getting 143 yards rushing. The Giants line was able to get some pressure on Tony Romo, who was able to escape which makes you wonder about Dallas' offensive front line and New York's last defensive stop came with about five minutes left in the first half. Cowboys receiver Kevin Ogletree caught 8 passes for 114 yards against a thin Giants secondary.

Detroit overcomes three bad decisions by Matthew Stafford, one of them returned 31 yards for a touchdown, dropped passes, and the lack of a running game to pull out a last second 27-23 win over the Rams. The defense played well for the most part, but were unable to make key stops in the fourth quarter until the Rams' final possession. Stafford led the Lions on an 80 yard drive that resulted in a five yard touchdown pass to Kevin Smith with 10 seconds left. The Rams scored 13 points off the Lions' three turnovers.

Does anyone else think the replacement referees don't know a block in the back when they see one? There were two of them during a 75 yard punt return for a touchdown that was called one after they picked up the flag. There were some missed offsides calls in the Cleveland-Philadelphia game and maybe a couple of missed face mask calls in the Detroit-St. Louis game.
