just some random stuff that was at the end of an article i read this morning...........

"Briefly: Defensive tackle Chris Hovan, inactive the past two games, will start in the nickel defense Sunday and be a backup in the base defense.

• Running back Moe Williams missed Friday's practice because of a 24-hour stomach flu that has hit several members of the team. He was added to the injury report as probable but is expected to play Sunday.

• Culpepper's jersey is the 18th-most popular and Randy Moss is 24th on NFLShop.com. Packers quarterback Brett Favre leads all sales, with Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick second and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady third.

• According to a poll of 354 NFL players conducted by Sports Illustrated, Moss is considered the league's fastest player. He received 35 percent of the votes, with Vick second at 12 percent.

• The Vikings are encouraging each fan to bring a new, unopened toy to Sunday's game to benefit Toys for Tots/Teens. U.S. Marines will be stationed at every Metrodome gate to collect toys from 10 a.m. to kickoff.

Oh my God, I dunno where people are getting the idea that Michael Bennett has better game speed than Randy Moss. N O.

I think now vick is faster for sure since moss is injured but it will be really close if both are healthy and go for it all in a race.
