Haltime Thoughts from the Press Box in Cincinnati

Here are some quick thoughts at halftime here in Cincy at the Browns-Bengals game from the Press Box:

* In New Orleans, Deuce McAllister was introduced with the starters today, and it wasn’t just for show. Despite the Saints …..McAllister has a team-high 8 carries for 35 yards. I guess it’s time to see if he can carry he load and contribute.

* Who is Montell (don’t call me Williams) Owens? He’s a RB from the Jags that has the only Jacksonville TD of the game for the team, and it came on his first carry of the game on a 41-yard run. For those that have Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew, that has to drive you nuts. Owens is a 3rd year player from Maine.

* Guess staying out East all week for the Cardinals is not paying off as they would have liked. Three Favre to Coles scores and a Kurt Warner pick taken back for a score by Darrelle Revis has put the Cards in a HUGE hole 31-0. This is a big game for the Jets, and so far so good.

* Another unknown is having a big day – Lance Moore, wide out from the Saints. In his third season from Toledo, he has six grabs for 85 yards and two scores. The Saints are a team with a lot of weapons, even without Marques Colston or Jeremy Shockey.

* There was a lot of heat this week on Texans QB Matt Schaub, and he has come through. In a 10-10 halftime tie with the Jags, Matt is 14-for-19 for 134 yards and a score. Give the O-line some credit for giving him some time to throw as well.
