Commissioner Roger Goodell says he still doesn't have enough information to make a decision on possibly disciplining Vince Young . Goodell said Thursday that "right now we're gathering facts" after the Titans quarterback received a misdemeanor assault citation after a fight early Sunday at a Dallas strip club. Goodell, answering questions after speaking to high school players at an NFL clinic in Queens, N.Y., also said the league no longer needs four preseason games and that it should change its offseason training programs.

Tennessee Titans fans are biting their nails now that their quarterback, Vince Young, has been chosen to grace the cover of EA Sports' Madden NFL 08. It's a big honor in a world where more kids are likely to play Madden than watch Young on TV, but there's a catch: the notorious Madden curse. Since 2001, every athlete who has appeared on the Madden box has been injured the next season. Last year's model, Seattle Seahawks running back Shaun Alexander, broke his left foot and missed six games.

If he is not quite the man the Ravens drafted a year ago, Sergio Kindle at least gave a pretty good imitation at his formal unveiling last week in Philadelphia. The hearing in his left ear is poor and he had to rely on hand signals to get the defensive call at times, but the Ravens' pass-rushing linebacker was always around the ball in his NFL debut. The best news for the Ravens was no news -- no violent hits that left Kindle groggy. A year after he suffered a hairline skull fracture that forced him to sit out the 2010 season, Kindle, 23, passed a huge test in the Ravens' preseason opener.

Even before it was mercifully put to rest in 2004, I never believed, not for a minute, in the Curse of the Bambino. It was, in my opinion, a lame excuse that people trotted out when they attempted to rationalize or ignore the bad decisions made by countless Boston Red Sox teams. That's true for the Chicago Cubs, as well. Curses, whether they're named after a billy goat or a man wearing headphones and a hoodie named Bartman, are a cop-out. In sports, people choose their own destiny. Nothing is predetermined.

Kyle Boller understands that the landscape at quarterback with the Ravens soon could transform from an unsettled situation to a heated one. The Ravens might have a chance at signing Steve McNair. Or they might get extremely lucky and have a shot at drafting Vince Young. Or they might end up doing what many had predicted for months and finally bring in Kerry Collins. More Ravens Team covets Texas quarterback Vince Young, but trading up in first round to get him is unlikely. PG 14D

Patriots (5-0) @ Cowboys (4-0) -- This is the game where the NFC finds out if the Cowboys and their quarterback, Tony Romo, are for real. Dallas has a short week after tonight's game. Titans (3-1) @ Buccaneers (3-2) -- Vince Young had a rough game yesterday, and it won't get easier against the Tampa Bay defense.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh gave a vote of confidence to Joe Flacco a day after the quarterback threw a career-high four interceptions in a 15-10 loss at the Cincinnati Bengals. "He's going to play a lot better," Harbaugh said during his Monday news conference. "I guarantee you that. " Why is Harbaugh so confident that Flacco will bounce back? "He always has. He's always bounced back," Harbaugh said. "He bounced back from a tough first half and led us on that drive to start the second half.

Vince Young apologized to the Titans, his teammates, his family and fans for his role in a fight at a Dallas strip club Sunday night. Young said he was headed back to his hotel after an autograph session when he decided to go out with a friend. "Just made a mistake even being there and let that guy provoke me into doing what I did," said Young, who was not arrested in the case. "Fell into his hands, what he wanted me to do." Surveillance video footage released by Dallas police shows Young and several people talking in a small room before the former Texas quarterback attacked a man who had made a downward "Hook 'em, Horns" sign.

Not to throw ice water on the Joe Flacco story, but everyone surely is aware of who will be on the opposite sideline from him at M&T Bank Stadium today. Depending on how Kerry Collins does for the Tennessee Titans this afternoon - or on what the Ravens' defense does to him - Vince Young might do more than stand on the sideline with a cap on or hold a clipboard. He might end up in the other offensive huddle. There, in front of an increasingly giddy Ravens fan base (barely cooled off even after the loss in Pittsburgh on Monday night)

The most surprising team in the AFC is not the Tennessee Titans. It is not the Ravens, either, no matter how heartwarming this three-game turnaround has been with their rookie head coach, a rookie quarterback and a back-to-the-future defense. All of you out there can raise your hands if you thought the Buffalo Bills would be where they are today. How about one hand? Like the Titans, the Bills are 4-0. Like the Ravens, the Bills have done it with a young quarterback, Trent Edwards. But here's the difference: After finishing 7-9 a year ago and losing their last three games, the Bills have already won three times coming from behind in the fourth quarter, twice on the road, including at Jacksonville two weeks ago. And here's another difference: Edwards, in his second year, has played as if he were the second coming of another former Stanford quarterback, a fellow named John Elway, not a late third-round pick whom the Bills drafted after dumping Willis McGahee.

Matt Cassel, Patriots Replaces: Tom Brady (knee) Faces: Jets at Meadowlands Prognosis: Let the rest of the AFC East gloat. If Cassel couldn't play, the Patriots would have dumped him already. He won't produce Brady-like plays, but the former Southern California quarterback will be competent. Kerry Collins, Titans Replaces: Vince Young (knee) Faces: Bengals in Cincinnati Prognosis: If it wasn't Young's knee, it would be his head that sent him to the sideline. Collins won't run like Young, but he'll pass better.

With NFL draft fever sweeping the sports nation, it seems a good time to pause my baseball ramblings and talk a little pigskin. Most fantasy players have an instinctive affection for drafts. We get to watch the experts go through the same agony and ecstasy we experience every spring and fall. Is it better to hold on to a high pick and snag a potential star at a premium position? Or is there more value in the middle of the draft? Can you wait until the second day to pick a quarterback?
