I'm not above gimmickry to get my voice heard, and since countdown lists are all the rage these days, I'm jumping into the fray with my signature style. Today I'll still be serving up some tasty tunes, but instead of just a recap, quip and a pseudo-prediction, why not dedicate songs to the five best and worse players from sunday?  Sound good? Of course it does, let's spin these steel wheels!=Five UpMatt Schaub527 passing yards to go along with five touchdowns is nothing to sneeze at, unless you're Norm Van Brocklin. It was non-stop yards for Schaub in the second half but more importantly, Schaub keyed the comeback against a feisty Jacksonville Jaguars team led by the next man up on our list.Song: All Night Long by Lionel Richie Relevant lyrics: "Yeah, once you get startedYou can't sit downCome join the funIt's a merry go round" Chad HenneRaise your hands if you started Chad Henne for your fantasy team this week.  What, only like, 20 people in the entire world?  Yeah, that's how far off the radar Chad Henne has been this season until his monster game.  At one time, many scouts and coaches thought he had the potential to be a winning quarterback.  Perhaps he's found that potential?Song: It's My Life by Bon JoviRelevant lyrics:"It's my life And it's now or never I ain't gonna live forever I just want to live while I'm alive" Andre Johnson273 receiving yards and the game-winning catch and run.  I distinctly remember pundits and arm-chair fantasy experts dogging Johnson at the beginning of the season--'he's lost a step', 'he's not even the third best receiver in the conference'--so much for that noise.Song: Break Stuff by Limp BizkitRelevant Lyrics:"My suggestion is to keep your distance, cuz right now im dangerous" Von MillerEntirely possible this monster is the defensive player of the year. 3 sacks and 2 forced fumbles will go a long way to helping secure that piece of hardware for his mantle. Song: Strange Clouds by B.O.B ft Lil WayneRelevant lyrics:"I do my job exceptionally, on point like a decimal is.The way I ride on the beat man I be in the street it's done so effortlessly" Julian EdelmanThe all-purpose player from Kent State was all over the field; returning punts for touchdowns, running reverses, and catching passes.  Bill Belichick loves these types of players. Don't be surprised when Edelman lines up to kick a field goal sometime soon. Song: Don't Stop Me Now by QueenRelevant lyrics:"I'm a shooting star leaping through the skiesLike a tiger defying the laws of gravityI'm a racing car passing by like Lady GodivaI'm gonna go go goThere's no stopping me" Five DownAndrew LuckI said it in last week's One-Liners: Belichick loves humiliating rookie quarterbacks.  I'd say Luck was completely humiliated.  Just another learning experience for the rookie, in time, this will just be a blip on the radar for him.Song: O.E. by Hop HobsonRelevant lyrics:"I got biasI got struggles, I got by itI got jobs, I got hiredI lost jobs, and got firedI been sick from bein' sick and tiredI been me and will be until the day that I expire" Matt RyanHis team got the win but a career-high five interceptions lands you on the 'Five Down' side of this list.  Better luck next week, Ice. Song: Grown So Ugly by The Black KeysRelevant lyrics:"Baby, this ain't me, baby, this ain't meGrown so ugly, grown so uglyDon't even know myself" Andy ReidNick Foles gets the first start of his career and his head coach did him no favors by having him throw 46 times to only 20 rushing attempts.  One of those rushing attempts also got LeSean McCoy concussed well after the game was out of hand.  Andy Reid has no handle on his team.  Something everyone in Philadelphia has known for awhile. Song: Creep by RadioheadRelevant lyrics:"I dont care if it hurtsI want to have controlI want a perfect bodyI want a perfect soulI want you to noticeWhen Im not around" The Kansas City ChiefsToo much blame too place on the shoulders of one player on this pathetic team.  Offense, defense, special teams, coaching, front office...they all deserve a Price Is Right horn. Song: Closer by Nine Inch NailsRelevant lyrics:"Help me I broke apart my insides, help me I’ve got no soul to sellHelp me the only thing that works for me, help me get away from myself" Rob GronkowskiThe Gronk had a great game but he will be sorely missed after breaking his forearm.  Four weeks without obnoxious touchdown dances and quotes about "nutcracker dudes" is four weeks too long.  I know what he'll be doing during his down time though. Song: Fight for Your Right by Beastie BoysRelevant lyrics:"You gotta fight..for your right..to paaaaarrrttaayy!" Bonus Track to Pump You Up for Monday Night FootballHere's to the brains of Jay Cutler and Alex Smith. Their concussions could make tonight's game an old-school, defensive slugfest.  Or their absence could make a potential NFC Championship preview a little dull.  I'm sure they are pining to get on the field with the rest of their teammates in a huge, prime time game.Song: Bangarang by Skrillex ft. SirahRelevant lyrics:"Shout to all my lost boysSh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shout to all my lost boysWe rowdy"
