It's bad enough that the NY Giants are going to be a 6-10 team, but Notre Dame is an abomination! What a disgrace! I don't care what the reason is, it's so far beyond frustrating. I have completely given up.



Yeah, it should, but we don't live in Shouldland! Ah, Shouldland, where clean-cut kids cruise Shouldland Boulevard, and the Shouldland High football team gets their optimistic asses kicked by their crosstown rival, Reality Check Tech.

You think the Giants are going to win six games?

Anyway, Notre Dame is just atrocious. That massive extension to Charlie Weis is suddenly not looking like such a great idea anymore, eh?

For some reason, this weekend of football has left me annoyed, also. Probably because the upside-down nature of the NFL is rearing its ugly head again. The Browns over the Bengals? The Bucs over the Saints? The Texans over the Panthers? THE CARDINALS OVER THE SEAHAWKS?! THIS is why Survival Leagues are becoming the next big thing, because nothing is a sure thing anymore.

But how's this for a silver lining? Terrell Owens (for as much as I might dislike him) scored a TD in the fourth quarter of today's Cowboys/Dolphins game and brought out the HOLLYWOOD BLONDS~! celebration, complete with using the football as a camera and the "roll camera" gesture. Unfortunately, the Fox goofs in the announce booth nearly sapped all the coolness factor from it by repeatedly going "Gee, what's he doing?", even though there was popcorn all over the field behind Owens.

But still, it was every bit as cool as watching Trent Green throw his four INT's.

I've got the Giants at 3-13(I know I picked them to win the division, but that was because None of the Above wasn't available) at this point, with a full mutiny around the time of the London trip. At least Coughlin will be gone soon, and hopefully Strahan won't be far behind, as the Giants defense still has never gotten a big stop since Strahan joined the team.
Onto Notre Dame: I knew this season would be bad, just based on the front loaded schedule and the players that left. However, I thought they could at least block. Notre Dame football was built on being able to control the line of scrimmage. I'm not even mad at the defense, because they have to realize there is no hope so why try. This is one of the most disgraceful offenses in college football history. I'll give Weis this season, although if they lose to Duke all bets are off, but something has to change. Fire Powlus. The guy screwed up the program upon his arrival as a player, now he's screwed it up as a coach. I fear what USC is going to do to this team. 70-0 looks possible. Closing back in on the belief that Notre Dame has had only 1 good coach since Dan Devine left.

The only logical conclusion to come away from this weekend is that the Super Bowl will undoubtedly be my Packers against the Texans. Anything else would just be silly.

The late games were horrible. Detroit and Minnesota had 10 turnovers between them. Both starting QBs got hurt, so we got 4 sucky QBs. The silver lining, as a Packer fan, is that neither of these teams should cause any trouble. If Bad Grossman keeps playing (like the one today that averaged 4.7 yards/attempt), then the Packers might be able to win the division. The defense is going to have to play better though. If not for stupid penalties by Giants players, that game could have been a lot closer. For a disciplinarian, Coughlin's teams make a lot of stupid penalties.

I had a bad feeling for my Seahawks after they didn't go for it on 4th down in the 4th Qtr and instead kicked a FG to take the lead rather than pushing for a TD. Of course, they were still about 10yds from being in Brown's range to ice the victory at the end when they had that botched handoff (sigh).

At least my KY Wildcats beat Louisville for the first time in 4 years (which led SportsCenter this morning amazingly enough!).

Aw, that's not fair to Ronny Heisman! That offensive line is beyond terrible, and that's not Powlus' fault. Notre Dame's not going anywhere until they find guys who can block. Of course, if you believe what the announcers say, cloning Jimmy Clausen five times would easily solve the offensive line woes.

And since when is Zbikowski an arm tackler?

I know they won, but it was utter stupidity not to go for 2 up 5 with 30 seconds on the clock. And the celebrating being a distraction shouldn't be an excuse, as they still had a time-out left. If the Hail Mary had been caught in the end zone rather than the 10 yard line, would that have been an even more painful loss than the fake victory then Hail Mary defeat to LSU a few years ago?

OSU win - check.
Browns win - check.

Only thing better would've been if the meteor hit the House of Blues and taken out ND *and* scUM.

After a 0-2 start, is it too early for me to say, "I told you so?"

Well I'm glad I'm not the only one freaking about my team(Saints) right now. The fact that the Saints could not find an offensive rhythm vs the BUCS scares me, and Jason David $ucks.

Anyway how is everyone's Fantasy teams going? LOL.

The Falcons have the proud honor of having the world's worst NFL kicker. Harrington, for all his ball-holding flaws, at least kept the offense moving.

Morten Andersen is still available...Mike VANDERJAGT is also available. Petrino era...grrrrrr.

Also, I want to see these Cleveland Browns again.

How times change. MNF reports that Atlanta has signed 47-year-old Morten Andersen, and are in talks with Byron Leftwich. Falcons website verifies the first part of that at least.

Honestly I don't know why Atlanta ever cuts Andersen. It's like an off-and-on relationship with a girlfriend. Just keep him, baby! As for Leftwich, I guess I'd rather have him than Chris Redman (wtf, when did HE become our #2??) but I MUCH rather would have had Daunte Culpepper when he was still available.

You know it's a bad year for Atlanta sports when the only thing I can say right now is, let's give the Hawks a chance before we give up on it all.

Petrino gets a free pass this year due to the Vick Fiasco - now all he has to decide is whether he wants Brohm or Brennan....
