JT: Flat-out speed, it's [ Minnesota's] Tarvaris Jackson or [ Washington's] Jason Campbell.
DP: Who's the slowest of the quarterbacks left in the playoffs?
JT: I'd say Kurt [Warner].
DP: In a 40-yard dash between you and Warner, what's the result?
JT: I'd beat Kurt by at least 15 yards.
Stop the Music
IN THE AFC Championship Game, Pittsburgh safety Ryan Clark laid out Baltimore running back Willis McGahee with the kind of hit that usually hushes a stadium. But as McGahee lay on the field, music blasted from the Heinz Field sound system. Worse, the song was Down on the Corner. Bad joke or bad judgment, it doesn't matter. A situation like that calls for one thing: silence.
LAST WEEK, when expectant father Drew Brees was on the show, the Saints' QB said he'd been doing the wet-ball drill to prepare for holding his first child, a son. He also said he'd heard plenty of suggestions for names that work with the surname Brees, such as Stiff, Spring and Autumn. "They didn't pass the first round," he said. When the baby was born last Thursday, Brees and his wife, Brittany, went with Baylen. If they have another, here are a few names they might consider:
? SUMNER Summer Brees would be great for a girl. For a boy, this is the next best thing.
? KOOL It worked out for Robert Bell, who went with the new name and sang Jungle Boogie with his Gang.
Going with the name chosen by Gwyneth and Chris Martin all but guarantees the tyke an endorsement deal with a certain restaurant chain.
? DREW JR. Naming a child after oneself is a big decision. Drew Brees or not Drew Brees, that is the question.
