It took overtime against the so-so Packers, but the Titans remain undefeated. Pretty impressive start, but they're a long way from paydirt. Although really, did anyone but us Titans fans (and a couple of Chris Johnson fans from college) expect even THIS much from this team?

Meanwhile, my Dirty Birds put an absolutely obscene hurting on the Raiders. No one ever accused the '08-'09 Raiders of being an elite team, but this was just laughable. 45+ minutes time of possession for the Falcons and over 300 yards of total offense by halftime. Contrast that to ZERO points the Raiders put up (first time the Falcons have shut anyone out in 6 years) and a grand total of 77 offensive yards. I'd say it was beautiful if it weren't so ugly.

And according to tradition, the biggest game of the week - nay, the YEAR! - is happening tonight! Watch as the Steelers force me to root for them against the Redskins so that the incumbent party leaves the White House. Anyone got a spread on this game? Fox News told me today that it's "dead even, just like the polls." Hmmmmmmm!

I was watching that game (I have 4 TVs in my family room, all hooked-up to Sunday Ticket in HD) and the Raiders had -2 yards and 0 first downs at the half.

That was the worst performance by a team that I've seen in a long time.

The important part of the Presidential candidates being on MNF: This allows ESPN all day Tuesday to run a crawl stating that sources have told Chris Mortenson that a federal election is occurring in the United States Tuesday, with a confirmation scroll stating that Stephen A. Smith has confirmed that an election is occurring.
On the Titans: I hope they stay unbeaten until Thanksgiving, and the Lions stay winless through them, just providing a reason for the game to be watchable.
Jacksonville had the Browns/Bengals/Lions after going 3-3, and somehow they are 3-5. Does this put Del Rio's job in jeopardy?

Not only are the Titans 8-0, they have a 4 game lead over the Colts and a 5 game lead of the Jags & Texans ...

The Titans are going to be able to rest their starters by Week 12 at this rate.

What has happened to the divisions nowadays? The Easts are all .500 or better than the Wests are all .500 or worse (except the Cardinals, who will win the division by 7 games.)

The Raiders are a complete joke. I have no idea how they beat the stuffing out of the Chiefs. I don't think KC is THAT bad, as they've demonstrated the last 2 weeks against 2 of my favorite teams.

Go Ravens. Go Bucs. Go J E S T. They all have winning records halfway through the season. Go figure.

Welcome home, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Inf, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army Nat'l Guard! Good luck to those down south.

Dammit, that Packer game p*ssed me off like they haven't managed to do in awhile.

Not the 2 turnovers by Rodgers...I expect that outta a young starting QB. What ticks me off is the pair of dropped INTs the Packer D could've had...and how they held the Titans' offense in check so excellently for most of the 2nd half, then fold right up for the last drive of the 4th qtr and the OT.

Greg Jennings had it right in his postgame comments: the Titans are a team the Packers should've beaten. A road win like that would've gone a long way in this up-one-week-down-the-next NFL season towards making a case for the Packers as a legit NFC team.

But nooooooooooooo.... :-(

4-4, and the freaking Humptydome next week. Look for yours truly shooting on the sidelines. Somebody send me a big red "The W" sweatshirt... :-)

The Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks are not well placed to cope with injuries it seems. Those two can't get healthy quick enough, cause right now they're almost as hideous as the Raiders*.

The Bills and Bucs seem to have regressed over the last couple weeks, while Jacksonville have smoothly made the transition from last season's trendy playoff pick to this season's most overrated club. Seriously, the Bengals?

Oh, and I love Desean Jackson, but he seems to have an unhealthy determination to tease at least one boneheaded play each week. I'd be just as happy if he'd stop that. Now.

*But still significantly better than the Lions.

Words one never thought they would hear except in jest "Will the Bears be able to survive Kyle Orton's injury?" Who would have thunk it?

No kidding. The Bears terrified me this year; Sexy Rexy might be the only chance the Packers have of winning the division.

My god what a frustrating season thus far for Seattle. While injuries have hurt the offense terribly, mostly at WR (BTW, Branch is officially a bust). What is most infuriating is that the defense has just been terrible all year. They are giving up 373 yards to opposing offenses and yielding 26 points a game. Couple that with their absolute inability to win on the east coast (let alone in Seattle) and we are looking at a 6-10 and maybe 4-12 team.

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...

The Bucs's problem the past two weeks has been the injuries in the running game, specifically at the fullback position. Our backup fullback is on IR, our starting fullback is injured and may be headed for IR, and our third-string fullback is a guy that, while he's played for us before, was literally signed off the street two weeks ago. We did all right when Graham volunteered to move into the FB spot and block for Dunn, but now Dunn's injured, and Gruden's lost enough faith in Bennett to the point where Clifton Smith was taking reps at halfback after Graham was injured in the KC game. And none of this includes the fact that the clock is ticking on Cadillac and we'll have to make a decision on him (activate him or IR him) by the time we play Minnesota in two weeks.

Seriously, we needed this bye in the worst way, probably a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully we can get healthy and get our running mojo back, because the offense is much more consistent when we can get our yards on the ground.

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.

The offense played terrible against Dallas but seemed to get it together in the 2nd half and OT against Kansas City,. Hopefully we can continue to get the offense on track, because the division is certainly winnable at 6-3 with a tiebreaker (for now) over Carolina.
