Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall turned his punishment into apositive as he rushed for 165 yards and two touchdown in their win over San Diego.Ravens WR Mark Clayton is the clear goat of the week as he dropped a easy touchdown that allowed the Patriots to get away with a win. Mark Sanchez finally got his welcome to the NFL moment as he was sacked four times and the offensive turned the ball over four times in a sloppy game for the Jets.It's amazing that Drew Brees has not thrown atouchdown pass in two weeks but yet the Saints are still 4-0 for the first time since 1993.Memo to Tony Romo, with the game on the line and one second left, it isn't a good idea to throw the ball in Champ Bailey's direction.I know their secondary is depleted, but any good defensive team that allows themselves to be picked apart by an average QB like David Garrard deserves to lose. But then again, it was the Raiders,.You saw a vintage Peyton Manning on Sunday as he led the Colts to touchdowns on their first five drives, and tied Fran Tarkenton for third on the all time TD passing list in a win over the Seahawks.Mike Singletary's positive approach and motivational pep talks have certainly inspired the 49er's, as they now occupy first place in the NFC West.I'll leave you with this parting thought, The Saints and Broncos are both 4-0 and the Bengals and 49er's are both 3-1 Are we living in abizarre world or what.

Tower Industry Believes There is Ample Time to Manage Transition Safely byFebruary DeadlineWATERTOWN, S.D.(Business Wire)After years of preparing for the broadcast industrys shift to digitaltransmission on February 17, 2009, there are now conversations in Washington,D.C to again extend the deadline for this process. The result could havedetrimental effects for tower industry companies engaged in broadcast-relatedactivities. National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) chairman of the board ofdirectors, Don Doty released the following statement urging Congress to haltplans for an extension to the deadline.
"The livelihoods of small businesses nationwide and their employees depend onplans that have been made around the February 17, 2009 DTV transition. "For years, leases on tower space and special broadcast operations have beenscheduled around the February 2009 analog sunset. By delaying the transitionfurther, many millions of dollars will be wasted in unnecessary additional costswhile simultaneously damaging our industry and increasing the potential for joblosses in an already fragile economy. "Broadcast infrastructure support companies were severely impacted when Congressenacted the first delay in 2002. Overnight, contracted work was halted andentire companies folded or merged with others, just to survive.
