I guess this is as good a place as any to put down some thoughts on the week.
-Packers/Vikings- Hate to say I told you so but, well told you. Their defense is swiss cheese and like I've said before The Mystique of Lambeau Field died that cold night the Falcons punked them out in the playoffs. Teams used to beat themselves just thinking of playing in Lambeau, now they seen the field can be beaten... Brings us to this week with a Dome Team Minnesota coming and doing the same, and the final score is flattering to the Pack, it wasn't as close or competitive as the 5 point difference makes it look. Look The Pack are my team but there is no way this team is finishing ahead of the Vikings in the standings.
-Chiefs/Chargers- Yup I don't think many have to worry about Holmes being back in top form.
-Colts/Browns- Idiot Drunken loudmouth kicker (Vanderjagt) 9. Overrated Daddy's Boy QB (Manning) 0... Hey Peyton buy your kicker a beer and make it Canadian.
From what I saw of last night's game, I'm very convinced that the Bucs can finish the season 19-0. The Eagles were thought of as the team closest to the Bucs, and they got manhandled by what could potentially be the greatest defense of all time. I initially predicted a TB/NE Super Bowl, but a TB/Buf matchup has me foaming at the mouth. Sure, it's only been one week, but it's so much fun to speculate. God bless the NFL.

Plummer was AWFUL, and I'm sure he's well aware that he can't get away with such a sorry performance against San Diego. Thankfully it was against Cincy, and I'm hoping his learning curve is on the rise from hereon in.

Ill go out on a limb here. I think that Carolina will beat Tampa Bay this week. It was amazing to see how Jake Delhomme got that team fired up to (upset?) Jacksonville. If he starts,which I think he is,hopefully he will be the QB to break Tampas five-game win streak(dating to last year of course).Even if the Buccs prevail they still won't cover the nine point spread.

Pats - yeah we know, Tampa lost their first game last year too - could be in real trouble if they lose to Philly this week at home
Actually, the game is in Philly. Not sure what difference location would have on the outcome, I'm just praying for my Pats to pull this out

Reading the article that ESPN (sports.espn.go.com) has up, it almost seems like they may have overstated how responsive he was: There had been concern about the amount of blood that he lost, but this is still a shock.
