A great Non-Loss by the Cowboys this weekend.

I wonder if Vegas even took bets that Tennessee would be 9-0.....without Vince Young.....

I want to foward the Stats of the Patriots and Titan's to Cowboys' management with the title "See what happens when you have a back up QB..."

You can send the Bucs stats too - 3-0 this year with Brian Griese.   :D

Cripes, you could even add the Vikings to that list.   :P

What an insane game last night. Jets are the better team with all the injuries the Pats have but the Jets were totally out coached in the second half. Mangini had some terrible calls starting with 2 min left in the first half.

Cassel played like Brady last night.  400 yard, 3 TD's, and 60 yards rushing.  No turnovers.

Some great games again yesterday:

Giants: 9-1...team to beat in the NFC?  I'm a huge Giants fan so I may be a bit biased, but historically they don't even make the playoffs after winning the Superbowl so I'm stoked they are doing so well!

Denver vs Atlanta -- good game for the Broncos...not perfect but the San Diego loss puts them well up in the AFC West.  I'll be a bit surprised if they do not make the playoffs.

Steelers vs Chargers -- WTF?  Definitely an exciting game.

Cowboys vs Redskins -- good game and Romo did well after being gone the past few weeks.  It will be interesting on how much his broken pinky is a factor.  I'm glad they won because it widens the Giants' lead in the NFC East. 


Also, is it me or is no one making that big a deal that the Titans are 10-0?  I'm glad because I've always liked Kerry Collins and to see a team he's on succeed is pretty cool.  I just remember last year when the Pats were what everyone's talking about.

Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

First time that score ever happened in the NFL.  Weird stat there, eh?

I loved them showing SD fans all bundled up in Heinz Field...

Pussies.

No question about it, the Giants are the team to beat.  I think they're better than the Titans too.

Denver vs Atlanta -- good game for the Broncos...not perfect but the San Diego loss puts them well up in the AFC West.  I'll be a bit surprised if they do not make the playoffs.

Atlanta is about due to crash down to earth.  They're better than last year, but they're no playoff team.


Also, is it me or is no one making that big a deal that the Titans are 10-0?  I'm glad because I've always liked Kerry Collins and to see a team he's on succeed is pretty cool.  I just remember last year when the Pats were what everyone's talking about.

I hope they lose a few and soon.  I'm getting beyond sick of watching Javon Kearse parade that stupid chain necklace around every week.

You missed the best game from Sunday: Packers 37 - 3 over the Bears after Chicago had won 5 of the last 6.  Pretty nice day for the Green and Gold faithful.  ;D

What do people think about the No Touchdown - Touchdown! - Wait, not a Touchdown call at the end of the Steelers game?  I heard ont he radio today that the NFL now admits it should have been a TD, but they won't score it that way.  Apparently that call decided over $100 million in legal sports bets, since that was the difference between the Steelers making or not making the spread.  I lost a fantasy game because of it, but oh well.

But isn't the play blown dead the second an illegal forward pass is thrown?  If so, no touchdown.  I had not heard anything more about it...still one hell of a crazy game.

The Bears/Packers game was good too...still wondering if the Packers will make it to the playoffs or not.

Four of their last six before the GB game.  They lost to Atlanta and Tennessee.

In that division, I'd put my money on the Packers. 

On a different note, I think the Titans have a very good chance of running the table this year with regards to going undefeated. 

Wouldn't it be bizarre if the Giants ruined another team's bid for a perfect season; two years in a row?

It would be pretty awesome.  The only shame would be that Kerry Collins would again be denied a ring (he took the Giants to the Superbowl only to lose to the Ravens).  I'd feel much worse for the Titans than I did for the Pats....they were all such dicks last year.

Honestly, I'm glad they lost that game to the Browns....trying to go for a perfect season is too much pressure.  The only prize should be winning the Superbowl.

Actually there was no forward pass at all, that's what the debate was about.  The refs claimed there was forward movement on the ball but it went to the side and back a little actually, so Polamalu's running it in should've been "official" on the boards.

I'm no gambler and the Steelers still won (and it was a pretty poorly officiated game overall) so I don't really care that it flubbed up some guy's bets.  Basically you have to take into account poor officiating when you're gonna gamble I figure.  I mean there was some calls that I really think prevented the Steelers from putting more points on the board earlier, so the one at the end is just another "oops, we goofed" from the zebras.
