It's not time to take Michigan QB Denard Robinson's job away
Mark Snyder• The Detroit Free Press
Those calling to remove Denard Robinson as Michigan's starting quarterback have amnesia, are ill-informed or are simply shouting absurdity.

Brady puts it into drive
Ian Rapoport • The Boston Herald
The win over the Cowboys must have energized Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, because he woke up extra early today to do his regularly scheduled interview with WEEI Radio's Dennis & Callahan Show.

The Wolverines have turned their attentions in 2013 back toward De La Salle, offering 6-2, 210-pound linebacker Michael Hutchings.
