Need something to do this morning while you wait for this afternoon's kickoff?
Here are a couple of good reads.
- Mike Garafolo has a terrific piece on cornerback Aaron Ross. It's a revealing look at how Ross has struggled not only with his hamstring injury, but with his interest in the game the past couple of seasons.
- Steve Serby of the New York Post has a Q&A with the emerging young wide receiver Mario Manningham.
- Picking on the Oakland Raiders is always fun. So, if you haven't read it already, make sure you read Jeff Garcia's rip job on his former team.
- I am not sure what the point of this bizarre post at Arrowhead Pride is, but I think it will be the Giants who get the last laugh this afternoon.
- Over at the Daily Norseman, they are calling Monday's Packers-Vikings matchup 'The Most Important Game Ever.' I think the Norseman is joking. Sort of.
