The regular season grinds to a halt today with an uninspiring lineup of games. Not a whole lot of playoff drama other than the SNF game. Here are some of today’s headlines:

Brett Favre will sit for what will likely be the final game of his career. Unless he doesn’t. Either way, I’ll believe it when I see it. [ ESPN ]

Jenn Sterger’s dad told Radar Online he totally wants to kick Favre’s ass. What a bully Leo Sterger is, threatening an old man like that. [ via PFT – no link, Florio knows why ]

Cowboys remove Jason Garrett’s interim tag, give him new one that says “Jerry’s New Bitch”. [ Michael Lombardi, NFL Network ]

Chiefs’ o-coordinator Charlie Weis will be introduced as the new University of Florida OC tomorrow. No one likes Todd Haley. [ FH ]

Shawne Merriman signs two-year extension with the Bills. You remember Shawne Merriman, don’t you? [ Mort ]

Brian Brohm starts for the Bills. Also, how about that Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl. [ NFL Facts & Rumors ]

Those are people who died, died. [ 5th Down ]

Here are today’s early games, ranking on a four-star system that doesn’t involve throwgasms.
