All of Miami's points (all 28 of 'em) were off of Chicago turnovers.


It's a taste of their own medicine actually....I looked at alot of Chicago's blowout wins and most of their points came off turnovers created by the D. This time a team reversed fortune on them for once. I agree though..that QB throwing off his back leg didn't  look good.

Hmmm, I don't know what the plan is...  I guess we'll see how they flub it up or step it up, but at this point I'm focused on hockey and football's just getting a passing glance from me...  I don't mind the losses, honestly.  I of course hate to see them lose but at the end of the day I realize I spent up all my nerves last season and they went to the superbowl and won it...  I'm not going to worry about it now. :)  Even if they pull off some miracle and manage wins the rest of the way, I really don't even care. 

The Pens are doing well, the Steelers suck.  I guess we just can't have two teams going well at one time around here. :)

Just curious....Are you thinking out loud to yourself? I thought you didn't have a favorite team initially? So, are you finding a new favorite team or an initial favorite team? Well, who did you pick for a team?

I like your attitude towards it, that's a good eway to look at it..GJ Jesse!


On the Mon night game--

It really SUCKED, on further review- the raiders SUCK STILL.
Seeing that the Raiders have failed to score in their last 2 Mon night games and how bad they suck...I just wonder..since their mystique is gone, how do they keep getting Mon football berths? I thought teams were awarded Mon football berths by them being good teams or special storylines, division rivalries, brother vs brother ect. I saw no story or excitement for this game whatsoever..and rightfully(thankfully?) so it sucked. Perhaps if enough Monday night games are sucking this year and they start losing ratings then maybe the decision making process for picking teams to play in it will change? That would be nice from my point of view, literally.

I don't buy into the argument that the Raiders have alot of fans either and that teams with alot of fan following continue to get Mon night berths regardless of how bad they suck. My team has alot of nationwide fans AND they suck but no berths?! That excuse falls into the doesn't-follow-fallacy so I don't buy it. I think the football schedulers should..choose more wisely.

Well they were former division rivals, but I think it is fair to say that no longer really matters. Most of the players from those days are gone, so any real rivalry between the two has gone out the window.

I do rather enjoy seeing the Raiders suck so much though. :)

I have to admit ...years ago I actually liked them...the Plunkett, Stabler years..then, they moved to LA developed more of a attitude and I hated them ever since..EVEN when they moved back to the bay area. It was easier for me When they moved to LA(I started disliking them) since I was young and was occasionally finding it difficult to follow both San Fran
AND Oakland.

OPINION

Have to admit though LA area fans for football overall have to suck (for not doing more to keep their teams/owners here and happy). There appears to be more Raiders fan following down here than anywhere I've been in the US. Maybe I'm missing something..but where were all their voices when Al Davis asked for their support?! Why was there so much silence by the city when Al decided to take his team back north? Or, more legitimately a Q..how can a metro area of multimillions in population suck so bad as to not have(or keep ::)) even 1 NFL team?

I guess what I think is a joke is all the Rams/Raiders fans left behind here that didn't dump there teams when they left. I guess I just don't understand it. I CAN get staying by your original hometown team and continuing to be said fan(me) wherever you move but not when a team does-- don't get that at all especially over the years when all the players, coaches have gone..there's no continuity except maybe an owner that took 'your' team away from you. At least
a team that never moved is still THERE and you have something; never had to change a city name or anything like that.

*and I don't consider anybody who discovers a new team to be a 'bandwagoner' if their prior team moved away either.

It appears that the San Fransicso 49ers are being relocated, granted it is only to Santa Clara, but they have been moved nevertheless.

On a radio show today they talked about keeping their name San Francisco still as well.

Steelers won, Pens are on a skid...  I swear we're not allowed by god or someone to have 2 winning teams in this city at the same time.  It's insane.

I was pretty happy with the Bears win on Sunday against the Giants.  They definitely have the inside track to homefield advantage.  That is unless they start losing to teams like the Jets and Packers.  Which would not suprise me really.
