Willie McGinest wanted to know. Who picked the Colts? Who picked the Patriots? One by one, he surveyed the media members gathered around his locker Sunday night. But McGinest knew. Most people had expected Indianapolis to finally beat New England on Sunday and avenge last season's loss in the AFC title game. Most people were wrong. The Colts and their precise, top-rated offense might have been the darlings of the week, but the Patriots, lest anyone forget, are the defending Super Bowl champions and have won 30 of their last 32 games, and seven consecutive playoff games.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says former coach Jimmy Johnson praised his work in the NFL draft. Jones called Johnson in Florida for a grade. "I spoke to Jimmy and he congratulated us," Jones said. "It was a good visit. He congratulated us on getting (first-round defensive end) Shante Carver. Jimmy thinks he's a good player. " It was the first conversation between the two since a split in which Johnson got his freedom and $2.5 million and Jones got total control of the team, including the draft.

TO MOST football fans, Willie McGinest is the NFL Network analyst who was selected to two Pro Bowls and was a big part of three championship teams for the New England Patriots. To Soul linebacker Beau Bell, the former linebacker represents something much more personal. Bell was a fourth-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2008 when he met McGinest, who was about to begin his 15th and final NFL season. Bell tweaked his knee in training camp and was coming off arthroscopic surgery.

A federal judge ordered imprisoned quarterback Michael Vick to repay more than $2.4 million to a Canadian bank for defaulting on a loan. The Royal Bank of Canada sued Vick in September, arguing his guilty plea to a federal dogfighting charge - and the resulting impact on his career - prevented him from repaying the loan. According to the suit filed in U.S. District Court in Newport News, Va., the loan's terms specify that any employment change negatively impacting Vick's income constitutes a default on the loan.

Denver safety Tyrone Braxton and Patriots linebacker Willie McGinest have been added to the AFC team as injury replacements for Houston's Blaine Bishop and Buffalo's Bruce Smith.

When NFL scouts look at Dan Wilkinson, they see another Cortez Kennedy, another Jerome Brown. With just 22 college starts in his resume, he's not that good yet. But an awful lot of people think he will be. "He's got the whole package," said Buffalo Bills general manager John Butler. "He's got size. He's got speed. He's got football savvy. He's the real McCoy. " "He has nowhere reached his potential yet," said Bill Kuharich, the New Orleans Saints' vice president of football operations.

Practice? Jon Runyan's left knee hurt so badly after Wednesday's practice that he took the next three workouts off, hoping to make his 190th straight start. After the way he played last night against the Browns, expect his workload to be similarly limited as the season's grind continues. "He'll probably be a little tender today on that knee," coach Andy Reid said. "He's a warrior. A very mentally tough guy. " "Isn't that the way it's supposed to be done," Runyan asked afterward.

They're double-digit underdogs in the biggest game of their season. They're playing the St. Louis Rams, a team they played in the regular season, losing a close game. They believe their defense can keep the Rams' explosive offense in check and that their young quarterback can do enough to give them a chance to win a close game. The New England Patriots, in short, are exactly where the Eagles were one week ago today. "We've been in this situation all year," Patriots center Damien Woody said.

Jameel McClain, a Philadelphia native who attended George Washington High School, was not taken in the 2008 NFL draft. But the Syracuse linebacker found a home in Baltimore when the Ravens made McClain the only undrafted player to make their team that year. "It was like I was born into it," McClain said of the Ravens' defensive culture. "Because it's the way I play the game. You look at a Raven player, it's the way people have looked at my game my whole career from high school to college.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is expected to be ready for the postseason after suffering a concussion in yesterday's 31-0 rout of the Cleveland Browns. As Roethlisberger delivered a 4-yard pass to tight end Heath Miller over the middle, he was leveled by Willie McGinest at about shoulder level and D'Qwell Jackson at the knees. Roethlisberger's head struck the Heinz Field turf hard as McGinest drove him backward. "All tests are negative - which is a positive," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said.

Mike Alstott's season, and perhaps his career, is over. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed the six-time Pro Bowl fullback on injured reserve yesterday with a neck problem. Alstott said it is not related to a career-threatening injury that required surgery in 2003. "It is what it is. The facts are the facts. I can't put on the helmet and jersey this year," the 33-year-old Alstott, flanked by Bucs general manager Bruce Allen, said during an emotional news conference at the team's headquarters.

The scoreboard looming over J.P. Losman as he scrambled behind the Bills' own goal line showed a tie game. Ty Warren was determined to change that. "My priority was to get him in the end zone," the Patriots defensive end said. "We're tied up, so I'm thinking, 'Let me get this dude.' " Losman went down, the official's arms went up to signal a safety and New England beat visiting Buffalo yesterday, 19-17, with poise under pressure and increasing pressure by a defensive line.

The team didn't disclose terms of the deal with Seau, whose signing followed 4 days of on-again, off-again signals about whether the 37-year-old would return to the NFL. The Patriots needed another linebacker because Tedy Bruschi has a broken hand and Willie McGinest, a mainstay of their three Super Bowl...

The New England Patriots arrived at Cecil Field yesterday on Delta Airlines charter 9801, no doubt disappointing all those who believed the AFC champions would be descending from the clouds on chariots of fire. The Patriots' appearance in Super Bowl XXXIX, their third trip to football's Wallop-A-Looza in four years, has seen them anointed not only as a hefty favorite in Sunday's matchup with the Eagles but also as football's latest dynasty. Minutes into the two-time Super Bowl champions' first interview session, at their Renaissance Resort at World Golf Village headquarters, it became clear that in the chatter-splattered week leading up to the game, the Pats will be doing everything they can to discourage such hyperbole.
