It's pretty nice being able to see 4 NFL games in 2 days over Sunday and Monday.  But I always wanted to see the NFL broken up into 2 games a night the entire 7 day week.  It would be nice if every night there was a pair of games on, like a 7 and a 10 PM.

Steelers with another win, though people are already bitching that the offense wasn't as effective as everyone would like...  I thought it didn't do poorly myself, and that things just stalled out sometimes and wound up in 3 points instead of 7, but hey a win is a win and I'm happy tonight.

3 - 0 start, last accomplished by *drum roll* Bill Cowher.  Yay Steelers.

Still though, people are saying a lot that the Steelers aren't going to be tested till the Bungals, Ravens, etc.  I can't really disagree with that thinking entirely either.

Gross, man.




I wonder what will become of him. I've heard that when he is pulled-that he won't come back/it will be a permanent removal. I also hear that 'the machine aint broke' mentality is in play. That the Bears are 18-9 in games Gross started so they won't pull him. If the Bears have a losing record in their next two games, then I expect him to be gone.

I felt the Steelers /49ers game was good until the 4th quarter. At least the niners got 80 more yards in offense than usual ::). It appeared that the run was starting to work but then the turnover came and they had to abandon it. It's true that Gore has his best running stats in games the 49ers are able to keep close, where they can run the whole game-defenses start wearing down late. Overall I was proud that the niners scored so many points against the steelers- and that the passing game looked a little better. The corners played well as usual. It's really not a surprise about the Steelers' drives stalling in the red zone-it was noted that they had a problem in this area prior to this game - but they seem pretty adept at scoring outside the 20- so, does it really matter?

I really, really wanted somone to sarcastically ask crying Donovan a Q like 'Do you think the reason you were able to throw so well with so many TD's today was because you are black?' I would have been pleased if they did. I can guarantee there will be some QB's getting some heat monday for their performances in games played last weekend and obviously, race isn't an issue ::).

Why the heck doesn't Minneapolis get a CBS early game?  We're all going to be watching Packers vs. Vikings anyway, but would be nice to have something to flip to during the commercials.   >:(

I know..

I bet grossman doesn't come back now,ever.

I was figuring the way Lovie was standing by him that he may make it a couple weeks

Bet, he was pressured by the big boss to make the move.

Anyway, I think Griese will be good for them- he certainly's got to be salivitating at the opportunity at least.

NFL rules...you can't have a game opposite the home team when they are at home on the other station (if the Vikes are at home and are on Fox, no early game on CBS)
