It sure was good to see Ed McCaffrey slide into the endzone with that TD grab.

Am also looking forward to seeing what Antwaan Randle-El will be doing tonight now that the games count.

Had Green Bay in one Suicide Pool and Miami in another - thought I was going to be kissing my GB $$$ good-bye

One week does not a star make but Michael Vick could be the real deal.

and finally, does anyone really care about Peter King's Starbucks addiction ?

Yesterday was a perfect day for me, but that's because all the other NFC East teams besides the Skins lost games they should have won. Spurrier just might find a way to make Washington win the division.

The AFC West could be a VERY competitive division. The Raiders will have their work cut out for them.

Well we tried giving you the game with all this conservative crap(3 runs and pass offense) our offense was doing in the late 4th QTR. Hopefully our coach learned a lesson for trying that instead of putting the Bucs away.

Brad Johnson (almost spiked the ball on 4th down) Can't do anything under pressure, Chucky needs to start Shawn King. King was really good under pressure when he played for Tulane.

Ryan Leaf was really good under pressure at Washington St. remember that drive to end the game in the Rose Bowl, so close. Chucky's bunch is gonna struggle early, he doesn't run a simple offence. The only thing that will save them from 8-8 this year is their schedule.

Oakland shut down the run, nice, even if it was only against the seagulls (and their makeshift Oline). Can't wait to see how they do against Pitt. Sunday night.

Other than that great endings to games, billick loses, Martz Loses, Kick off for TD in OT, Helmet throw for a win, Tupa intercepted for a TD, Vick keeps it close in GB (too close for packers fans),RODNEY PEETE. In other words who cares that baseball is on strike, wait you mean their not, I hadn't noticed.

You have to love Bengal fans. I was watching my beloved Chargers smack the taste out of their mouths, and their fans were filing out at halftime. I couldn't help but laugh when the fans started booing IN THE FIRST QUARTER.

How embarrassed are the Cowboys right about now? And don't tell me Houston played a great game. David Carr was very average, and the Texans couldn't run the ball. Dallas was horrible. I knew they wouldn't be able to pass, but Emmitt looked old out there.

We've all seen what Billick can do with talent? It's what he can do without that will make or break the Ravens.

Nice game by Michael Vick yesterday. I have to admit, I'm not a big fan of the scrambling style, but Vick had a nice game. Good thing the Packers restored the rpoper order of things in OT.

The Bucs are the most overrated team in the NFL. I mean, I'm a huge Bucs fan and all, but it's time to call it straight. How a team can come from 10 points down with an aggressive attack go down like that kills me. If they don't win at least 10 in that division, the team should be dismantled.

Dwayne Rudd, read the damn rule book. You can't take off your helmet on the field, no matter if the play is over or not. You sure as hell can't spike it. Ask Rodney Harrison.

Mike Holmgren has to be praying that Trent Dilfer will be ready by week 3. Matt Hasselbeck has proven to be a waste of space.

I never, EVER, want to hear how great Ryan Leaf was under pressure. Dude took his money and ran. "Really good under pressure" in College does not translate to "really good under pressure" in the NFL. Ask Heath Schuler... or Rick Mirer... or any other first round QB bust in the last 10 years...

Speaking of Leaf, I hear his agent called Holmgren a couple of weeks ago claiming Leaf wanted to come back. Holmgren "politely" hung up the phone.

Anything else? Oh yes, the feel good story of the week... Robert Edwards. Props to you, Robert, for making it back!

Dilfer's planning to start next week for the Seahawks, so hopefully we'll have no more Hasslebeck. It's not that he played badly, but Holmgren has him so reined in and his head is so messed up that a 10-yard pass for Hasslebeck seems like a long bomb. He had 23 completions for (I think) 155 yards yesterday.

The REAL question after Week 1 of the NFL season, for me anyway:

You're standing in front of the window in Las Vegas, $10 million is yours if you make the right choice, zero if you're wrong...

Who are you taking if they played next Sunday?

The Detroit Lions or the Miami Hurricanes?

I'm thinking the 'Canes myself, but the fact that I think it would be close reflects how crappy the Lions are. Egads.

With excellent play from Vick, Carr and Brees the future of QB's in the NFL looks bright.

Mike Brown, Marty Booker and the Bears looked beautiful and all the great finishes made for a tremendous week 1 (I even skipped Heat to watch Prime Time on ESPN--The Cubs Fan's recaps are usually better than the show anyway).

I thought it'd be the Bears who would be exposed as overrated, but it looks like that title goes to...the Rams. Parity's a bitch, ain't it?

From looking at today, I'm still going with the Dolphins in the Super Bowl, but nothing from the NFC has overly impressed me. Make no mistake about it, though. The "Greatest Show on Turf" era is on its last legs. Kurt Warner may finally be coming down to Earth.

Y'know, BucsFan, I was going to lament the sadness of the loss alongside you, but then I saw "Gainesville, FL" sitting there -- time to say, "GO PACKERS." And "GO BULLDOGS."

And Jesus CHRIST I'm glad I have dial-up mode on 99% of the time - that IS a sick avatar. Fucking shit...

Random thoughts.
Detroit sucks even more this year. Once again I will have to pretent that they aren't my favorite team.
Damn that was a stupid ass play by Tupa. And he was a QB at one time.
Dallas lost and looked really bad. Best news of the season so far.

COme on on fellas, it is WAY too early to make predictions on who is going to suck or how the season will play out. Jesus, its only WEEK ONE.

1) Bucs, overrated? Maybe, but you can say that about almost any team with as much hype as they have at any point.

2) Tupa, stupid play? How do you figure? Remember, the safety would have lost it anyway, being OT and all, and he is right handed. He had to throw lefty because his righthand was wrapped up. He did all he could.

3) If a single overtime loss to start the season means Tampa Bay should just give up, then I'd hate to be a member of a team that actually lost decisively.

That is a sweet pic of Terrell, BockwinkelFan. I really don't think there are a lot of people in those bleachers, but it is still cool to junp up there. Now if only we can get David to show up before the 4th quarter...

Tupa did all he could, considering he had a missed block.

Safty? game over
Holding? same thing
Intentional grounding? same thing
INT? you saw
Fumble? safty or a TD, game still over
all he could do is try to get the ball out of the end zone, but if they didn't get the first, it was 1st and goal. A FG would have ended it anyway

Tupa was in a lose-lose situation, and needs better blocking.

I thought after the Steelers 5th turnover, XFL MVP Tommy Maddox would see some action.

Check that, Kordell just fumbled again. 6 turnovers. Wait, overturned by replay, only 5 to's now--but still no Maddox.

By the way, who won the XFL Million Dollar Game(tm)? My brother and I couldn't remember.

Is anyone else here MORE of an NFL fan since the XFL fell on its face? Of course, I could be helped by the fact that the Mariners are tanking and I'm pissed at baseball in general, but this is the first year I've been into just about every game I've seen (good games help, too). Of course, college football is still God on Saturdays in the south, but hey.

"Eagles cut (He Hate Me) Rod Smart". That will be the XFL's legacy.

Plus according to NFL.com, when there are three teams tied and two of those teams share a division, you do the division tiebreaker to pare those teams down to one before you start breaking ties among teams who don't share the same division.
