No Fun League Update: Players keep testing the NFL's taunting and demonstration legislation and the league keeps cracking down. The NFL put the kibosh on the St. Louis Rams' "duck down" touchdown celebration, which lasted one game. Definitely not disappointed by the league ruling is Rams coach Mike Martz. "I don't like that stuff," Martz says.

Ah, We Meet Again, Coach: The first team Joe Nedney will kick against for the Denver Broncos is none other than his old team, the Oakland Raiders. Nedney is looking forward to it. He was cut in preseason by coach Jon Gruden in favor of No. 1 draft pick Sebastian Janikowski.

"One of the last things I said to Coach Gruden (notice he did not call him "Gruden" as in "Hey, Gruden, what's happening?") when I left was 'I look forward to being on the opposite sideline from you and bringing my A-game and I hope I beat you,' " Nedney said.

Upgrade in Packerland: Voter approval of a tax to fund the $295 renovation of Lambeau Field in Green Bay means there will be 10,110 additional seats in the facility, a 16.6 percent increase. More important, there will be an additional 440 women's bathrooms, a 244.4 percent increase.

Wrong Way: Seattle QB Jon Kitna already has been intercepted six times in 46 attempts. That's a 13.0 rate. Rob Johnson of the Bills has the NFL's highest TD percentage (9.1). Four of his 44 throws have gone for scores.
