---If the allegations about Brett Favre are true - and he did send pictures of private parts to former Jets reporter Jenn Sterger -- the NFL has to do something. Not because he's a married man and he did so, but because this involves the workplace. This isn't an episode of Mad Men. The workplace has rules on sexual conduct. If Favre violated them, he should be suspended. Period. If not, then he's just an idiot who will have to deal with his wife. A suspension might be easier.

---The season-ending knee injury suffered by Rams receiver Mark Clayton is a big hit for the Rams. He was just starting to develop into the player the Ravens thought he would be when they took him in the first round of the draft in 2005. The Ravens traded Clayton to the Rams this summer, and he was developing a nice rapport with quarterback Sam Bradford. This will set them back this season and maybe next.

---It's interesting to see how quickly the Patriots tried to get out the word that Haircut-gate isn't true. CBS Sports Charlie Casserly reported Sunday that Randy Moss and Tom Brady had a locker-room incident that involved a face-to-face argument about comments made regarding hair and beard. The Patriots got word to their favored media friends that there was no truth to the story. Don't we expect them to deny it? If it is true, what's it say about the sensitivity of Brady and his hair? A little touchy, don't you think?

---San Diego tight end Antonio Gates is avearging 16.5 yards per game, the highest since his rookie season. This guy is getting better with age. He has a touchdown catch in each of the Chargers' five games, the second tight end in history (Wesley Walls was the first) to catch a touchdown pass in his first five games of the season.

---Speaking of tight ends, keey an eye on Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis. He has five touchdown receptions and can break the team record of 10. He's also a great blocker. Lewis is entering the final year of his contract, but look for the Jaguars to lock him up to a long-term deal soemtime this season. They have to pay him.
