1 I think Adrian Peterson (below, 28) has to go to the Tiki Barber School of Curing Fumbleitis. And soon. Like this week. How can you trust him right now, even after the three-touchdown game he had in the Dome? If I'm coach Brad Childress, I'm keeping Chester Taylor around next year just in case.
2 I think I like what I saw in Mark Sanchez over the past 16 days. He finished the postseason 2--1, completing 41-of-68 passes for 539 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions for a 92.7 rating. If Braylon Edwards had actually caught the touchdown pass he dropped against Cincinnati, the rating would have been 101.3. Plenty to build on there.
3 I think Dwight Freeney limping off late in the AFC Championship means trouble for the Colts. Good thing there's the bye week. After the game Peyton Manning said he was glad to have the bye week because he's mentally beat and needs time to recover before the Super Bowl.
