NFL Regular Season 2008
« on: September 2, 2008, 08:44 AM »
Well, the offseason is just about over and the regular season begins Thursday with the NY Giants ( >:( ) hosting the Washington Redskins.  Make your predictions.  In the meantime, here's week 1's TV coverage maps:

CBS Single Game

Fox Early Game

Fox Late Game

Lame, they're giving us Philly/St. Louis despite the Tampa/New Orleans game being by far the best game on the early schedule.

So you both think the Cowboys will get the "we can't win a playoff game" monkey off their back?

Yeah, I think they were finally embarrassed enough to figure out how to handle themselves next time.  And I think they got better on defense too, especially in the secondary.

The Giants looked good last night.  They should have a good season.

I think they're looking at 8-8 if they don't take the handcuffs off Manning.

Agreed.  He had a few passes that really should have been picks.  Outside of the rushing score, which was was the result of penalties not the offense, I was very dissapointed in the Giants, despite the win.  At least Burress looks to be back in top form.  The real game of the week will be the Monday night game when the Vikes come in to Lambeau and trounce the Pack.   :-\

That Giants/Redskins game was pretty boring IMO... no scores in the second half? Meh.

NFL wooo!!! :) A little farve magic today. been fun to watch. it is against the phins though. In my money league looks like i'll be getting the win. my rb's are a little weak but Bush just got me some good points with a td. would of been something if KC could of upset the pats. and wow how about Hotlanta? Ryan and Turner looking good.

I'm a little sore that McGahee was supposed to start and didn't get a carry, but yeah, lots going on today!  Lookit how good all the new guys are - K. Smith, M. Turner (New as a starter), Chris Johnson, Tim Hightower, Matt Forte...

Game of the week starts tommorrow at 6:00.  Let's see if AP is the real deal.

Fantasy sports enthusiasts around the nation just took a big dump in their shorts. 

And the Steelers cruised past the Texans...  ;D  Here we go Steelers, here we go!
