I'll place myself in the minority and praise Kyle Boller for entering in an emergency, throwing for 238 yards and two touchdowns, and posting a quarterback rating of 112.8 - whatever that means. I'm still waiting for somebody to explain that one to me. Boller trips over his own feet and stumbles around like Chris Henry leaving a nightclub at 3 a.m. These are his signature moves. But he's also a solid backup, capable at any time of making the big play. It's not his fault that the Ravens used a first-round pick on him. Would you rather have Derek Anderson replacing Steve McNair in a playoff game?

ASHBURN, Va. - As Steve Spurrier's first quarterback at the University of Florida, Shane Matthews has forged a unique, familiar relationship with the Washington Redskins coach. But with that familiarity comes the knowledge that Matthews must successfully lead the offense as Washington's starting quarterback in Sunday's season opener against the Arizona Cardinals at FedEx Field or face the dreaded hook that Spurrier has applied liberally in the past. "I was his first quarterback at Florida, so I guess that makes it extra special in a way," Matthews said of his 16th NFL start and first with the Redskins.

Ashburn, Va. -- He is the last link to Steve Spurrier's two-year reign of error, the only former Florida Gator left on the training camp roster of the Washington Redskins. With 30 catches for 315 yards and only one touchdown in his three-year career, Taylor Jacobs will likely have to do something extraordinary in the next month simply to be here for the start of the 2006 season. Jacobs, a second-round draft pick in 2003, prior to Spurrier's final season in Washington, knows that the odds have grown considerably longer with the influx of talent at wide receiver.

CHICAGO - There are unlikely success stories. And then there is Shane Matthews, who arguably defines the genre in the NFL. An undrafted free agent out of Florida, he was signed by the Bears in 1993. He also was waived by the Bears in 1993. And in 1995. And in 1996. All that changed in 1997. That year the Bears did not waive him. The Carolina Panthers did. Now, for the second time in three years, Matthews is the starting quarterback for the Bears. Yes, those same Bears whose record book now lists Matthews as No. 3 in career passing, No. 1 in completion percentage and No. 1 in lowest interception rating.

In a season that already defies logic, the NFL produced another round of can-you-believe-this in Week 9.No less than six teams won Sunday -- out of 13 games -- with quarterbacks who were backups or third-teamers at the start of the year. Consider these unlikely matchups:The Chicago Bears' Jim Miller, playing with his fourth team in six years, beat the Green Bay Packers' Brett Favre.The Denver Broncos' Chris Miller, playing his first game in four seasons, beat the San Diego Chargers' Jim Harbaugh.

1. The Redskins need to settle on the interior offensive line positions and have them produce, both in the running game and pass protection. 2. They must get some consistency and big plays at quarterback, whether it's Shane Matthews or Danny Wuerffel throwing the ball. 3. Their young wide receivers must come through and be in sync with the quarterback. Rod Gardner is the No. 1 receiver and he's only in his second season. 4. Running back Stephen Davis needs to be used in the passing game and given enough carries to represent a running threat.
