Todd Collins is the greatest NFC quarterback ever (this week)

Per the Official Site, Todd Collins was named the NFC Offensive player of the week. Todd Collins mixed together with "Offensive" and it works in the way we all want it to work. What a good story:

Collins entered the game for an injured Jason Campbell in the second quarter and led the team to a key victory. Collins completed 15 of 20 passes for 224 yards and two touchdowns for a QB rating of 144.6.

Tuesday was filled with praise for Collins, a 13-year NFL veteran in his second season with the Redskins. After a weekend off from football, players returned en masse to Redskins Park on Tuesday ready to begin preparation for this week's game against the New York Giants.

He and his teammates will have a long week to prepare for a pretty serious 9-4 Giants team that's already beaten us once. It is win or go home time meaning Collins can't take a breather but must unleash his awesome 13 year veteran fury on another unsuspecting foe. But just for good measure we brought in a secret weapon, also per the Official Site:
With Jason Campbell mending from a knee injury suffered last week, the Redskins added depth to the quarterback position by signing first-year player Jason Fife to the practice squad.

To make room for Fife, the club released linebacker Tyson Smith from the practice squad.

The Jason Fife? Wikipedia says Jason's claim to fame was backing up Joey Harrington before he backed up Kellen Clemens at Oregon. And he played for the L.A. Gladiators. So, like, your move New York.
