In a constant effort to stay on top of what has been taking place in the NFL this year I have spent several days watching and re-watching games on NFL Short Cut.

Today we will take a look at the hottest players in the league at the halfway point. We will also look at the players who aren’t doing well. (View the first quarter NFL report card here.)
