Pro Bowl Voting

Pro Bowl Voting - Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is chasing the ultimate prize this season as the Birds try to win it all and he tries to capture the league’s MVP award.
Right now Vick is leading all players in Pro Bowl voting. He’s got 729,838 votes, while the struggling Peyton Manning is second with 691,146 votes. New England quarterback Tom Brady follows Manning with 623,074 votes, Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson is fourth with 591,598 votes and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers rounds out the top five with 547,340 votes.
I think Vick’s number one competitor for the MVP award will be Brady, who is having an amazing year for a 10-2 squad. The Hall of Fame bound quarterback has thrown for 3029 yards with 27 touchdowns, only 4 interceptions and a 109 quarterback rating.

Vick has thrown for 2243 yards with 15 touchdowns, only 2 interceptions and a 105 quarterback rating. The Eagles quarterback has also run 467 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Brady’s Patriots lead the league in scoring average per game at 31.6, while Vick’s Eagles are second and averaging 28.7 points per game. The Eagles lead the league in yards per game with an average of more than 400 yards per game, while the Pats are averaging a little over 350 yards per game.

“It’s a great honor, a great position to be in right now, because I haven’t made the Pro Bowl yet, but it’s a credit to my coaches, a credit to my teammates, Mike Kafka, Kevin Kolb, guys who just helped me get through this season,” Vick said. “I can’t do it without my team, I can’t do it without my teammates, I can’t do it without the offensive line, (wide receivers) DeSean (Jackson) and Jeremy (Maclin), can’t do it without them. I’m just thankful to have these guys in my life, these coaches in my life.”

I think Vick’s redemptive story could give him an advantage over Brady, but that’s only if he can lead the Birds to the playoffs. Brady has the Patriots in better position to make the playoffs and possibly get the number one seed in their conference. Still Vick is becoming a fan favorite because his personal story is so compelling.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
