It took real guts Sunday for Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford not to stop the clock in the waning moments of a game against Dallas and instead take it upon himself to score the winning touchdown. But what if he hadn't scored? Could the Lions have gotten off another play? A quick review: With no timeouts and his team trailing by six, Stafford had driven the Lions 79 yards in the final minute to the Dallas one. He wildly motioned to his teammates that he planned to spike the ball to stop the clock.

As the final seconds wound down in Sunday's game against Dallas, Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford frantically urged his teammates to the line of scrimmage. He gestured wildly, giving everyone the impression he planned to spike the football to stop the clock, giving the Lions one last chance from the Cowboys' one-yard line. Then he noticed the Cowboys' sleepwalking linebackers. They weren't ready to explode off the ball. They were in position, but lethargically waiting for him to stop the clock.

Stafford, 73, who chaired the Senate committee on the environment from 1981 to 1987, announced his retirement in the same way he has operated in Congress--without fanfare. His staff was notified of the decision only this afternoon, by Stafford's administrative assistant. The senator had already left the office for a week's vacation.

Tomorrow will have an island. Before night I always find it. Then on to the next island. These places hidden in the day separate and come forward if you beckon. But you have to know they are there before they exist. Some time there will be a tomorrow without any island. So far, I haven't let that happen, but after I'm gone others may become faithless and careless. Before them will tumble the wide unbroken sea, and without any hope they will stare at the horizon.

By Michael A. Memoli WASHINGTON - Senate Democrats failed again Wednesday to pass their plan to lower the interest rate for some college loans, forcing lawmakers to choose between adopting another plan many consider burdensome for students or leaving the current higher rates temporarily in effect, to their own political detriment. A bloc of Republicans - joined by Sens. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.) and Angus King (I-Me.) - voted against a procedural step that would have cleared the way for the Senate to approve a plan to reinstate lower interest rates on subsidized Stafford loans for one year.

Matthew Stafford's playing status is up in the air for the Detroit Lions' game Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. That's all we know about the Lions' starting quarterback  following Coach Jim Schwartz's meeting with the press Monday -- which is basically what we already knew before Schwartz's comments. “I don't have any comment on how anything went with him,” Schwartz said of Stafford, who was scheduled to have an MRI after straining a muscle in his right leg during the Lions' 44-41 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

They are the six shooters of the NFL, the half-dozen hot-handed quarterbacks who have already thrown for more than 4,000 yards this season. They are from all over the country — New Orleans' Drew Brees, New England's Tom Brady, the New York Giants' Eli Manning, Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, Detroit's Matthew Stafford, and San Diego's Philip Rivers — and they're throwing the football all over the map. With two games to go, their numbers could shoot...

Cleveland's Colt McCoy is one of a host of young quarterbacks who are light on experience but heavy on potential. They all want to realize the type of early success that Baltimore's Joe Flacco, Atlanta's Matt Ryan and the New York Jets' Mark Sanchez have experienced. Five of the young guns to watch: Andy Dalton, Cincinnati: Carson Palmer's refusal to return to the Bengals set the stage for Dalton, a former Texas Christian standout, to step in and play. Dalton has the added pressure of getting no off-season to learn first-time NFL offensive coordinator Jay Gruden's system.
