It goes without saying that after the Panthers' first drive to a too easy touchdown, the rout everyone expected was most surely on. Only....
Dang, dude. And to think, this was WITHOUT Boldin. (Also, why couldn't the Panthers cover Fitzgerald if Boldin wasn't out there? Warner was just CARVING up those waaaaay-too-loose zones in the first half.)
Totally unrelated: I sure LOVE this FOX crew - they didn't play the "NFL on FOX (Injured Player Remix)" theme ONCE tonight, and they had several changes. Plus, GOOSE! On the down side, they couldn't help themselves and cut loose once with the "Nugget Alert" graphic. That, I can probably forgive.
And we're done tonight. Home field meant nothing on this day. Let's try to be up early so we can see what the last Manning standing can do.
Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you... Whoever wins tomorrow is going to be the biggest group of heels the NFL has ever seen.
smark/net attack Advisory System Status is: Elevated (Holds; June 18, 2006) While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.
Man, did Delhomme sucked donkey balls tonight. At least I had money on the Ravens instead of going with the 'obvious' pick of the Panthers. As long as the G-Men win tomorrow, it will be a good weekend for me betting-wise.
Originally posted by JALmanI can only feel good for Whisenhunt, a guy with Atlanta-based roots. However, I will not cheer for the Cards since they've knocked my team out.
My NFL teams go like this, in this order:
1. Falcons 2. Titans 3. Cardinals
Falcons are my clear cut favorite, so there was no conflict in my mind last weekend, and it sucks big time that they got booted so quickly, but I'll cheer the Cardinals all the way to the Super Bowl now that my other two teams are eliminated.
It also doesn't hurt that I hate the Panthers A LOT. Tonight's game was absolute football ecstasy for me.
I'm glad to see the NFL show my Bucs some respect finally (with two primetime home games, against Indy on MNF and Dallas on NFL Network), but man, some of their choices stunk from a personal perspective.
