As DH says (who has been a suffering Radiers fan for years) Nothing will change until Al Davis finally dies...he won't give anyone the control to build a good team!

I have to agree with your DH! It's hard to build up a great team with someone as controlling as he is and all the coach turnover as a result.

Argh, Bears what were you doing the second half? Why did you suck so much and lose? Why do you do this to me? I even had my lucky 2006 conference champs jersey on

That's at the refs in Denver. The Chargers should have won that game, if it wasn't for the ref that screwed them with the incomplete pass call. For that matter, both that call and the call they got wrong in the 1st quarter. It just sucks.

That game was so freakin' BORING. I would've liked to have seen ONE play without a flag on it, seriously. It reminded me of the MNF game last year vs. the Dolphins (which was on the night my mom died, when I really could've used some interesting football to distract me). Bleh. And I won't be able to watch next week's game, either.

Seahawks fan here-although this year I have no idea why.

I can't believe how bad they are sucking. The saddest part is I still look forward to watching them every Sunday. Oh well, I guess someone has to have the worst record.

Yep. I totally agree with your DH.

Don't think of it as a horrible season, think of it as a great draft pick. HE HE, sorry, I hate the Hawks.

And, kirsten, good thing you missed that game, it was brutal. I called DH after the field goal and DH and I laughed about how we didn't even deserve to win (I'll take it). I swear, the first half's score did NOT reflect the play of the game. The Vikes shoulda been killing them in points. Adrian Peterson is a beast and their D is amazng.

I also LOVED seeing the Chargers lose, so sweet.

Carolina's looking good, coming from behind in the first 2 weeks.

Shanahan is a maniac, he is lucky that 2pt. con. didn't backfire.

Philly/Dallas, was rooting for the Eagles. Oh well. Anyone else getting tired of hearing about Romo and the flat tire? What a great guy, though.

So, week 1, Pats barely beat the Chiefs. Week 2, the Chiefs get killed by the Raiders... WTF? Any given Sunday, I suppose.

Go Giants!

Anyone else cover their eyes when the Bengals have the ball. Yikes.

Oh, and Cleveland is disappointing me, too much potential and talent going to waste.

LOL, that's a good way to look at it. Kinda a glass is half full sort of thing. Well they are plagued with injuries and it is looking like they are going back to the days of sucking after being good for awhile, at least it got me back into the love of the game.

Well, I adore Shanahan so I *may* be just a wee bit biased...but here's why I thought he made that call - he knew they shouldn't have gotten to that point, knew they were on borrowed time- that is, the game should have been over, with the Broncos losing, when Cutler fumbled the ball a couple of plays before (where it was called an incomplete pass, even after review-- I couldn't BELIEVE that, really it was a bad call)- and so Shanahan just thought, what the h*ll, let's do it now or lose like we should have. Cutler seemed willing and ready to go for it too. [I was relieved since overtime is just torture for me. And I'd already sworn at the TV in a very loud voice too much that day. I'm going to have to do some language modification once The Wee arrives!!!!]

Course, Shanahan could just be crazy maverick too!!! Either way, I love him. Feeling good about the Broncos (despite Cutlers apparently very slipp-y hands, WTF?), and excited about the rookie Royal- he looks great!

LOL! That's great.

I'd be tempted to name The Wee after John Elway, only John is much too common (not to mention not necessarily associated with John Elway per se) and I don't like Elway as a name, really. And there's the whole idea that my husband might object...

Or perhaps it was the fact that week 1 the whole team was only thinking about what was happening with Tom...

We would have killed the Chiefs if he hadn't gotten hurt too..or if the injury had happened say in practice or something and we were ready for Cassel to have been playing. We are just a pretty tight knit team and it shook us all up.

Speaks load that we rallied and still won though.

I disagree. I think he thought they could make it - so they should go for it. Shanahan knows bad calls are a part of the game - sometimes they're on the winning side of a bad call - sometimes they're on the losing side. Broncos got lucky. Either way, it was an exciting game, eh? I thought I jinxed them for a minute there. I had to take my son to the children's museum for a birthday party that day. The children's museum is right across the street from the stadium. There were all these freaking annoying tailgaters there - I won't go into it, but they were being super annoying!!!! I came home and said, "I hope they lose!"

Nah, the Pats are an old team, collectively probably the oldest players in the league. They don't get rattled easily, especially with Hoodie breathing down their backs. I'm sure it was just playing with a new QB, kinda shakes things up a bit. The O-line doesn't anticipate his movements like they would Brady's so it's harder to block, the center wouldn't be used to Cassells' hand placements, the receivers aren't as tuned-in as they would be with Brady, the RBs hand-offs might be shaky, etc. I'm sure they'll get used to Matt. They're the Pats, who's gonna count them out?

daniturtle - I like Shanahan too! Of course, his icing the kicker last season was a bit shady, but you play to win, right?

That's kind of what I thought too. I do think he was confident that Cutler could make it though.

RE: the swearing... I really, REALLY don't swear much around DS. Like, at all. Especially since he is at the age where I am afraid one of his first words will be a four letter word. But man, last Sunday? I am not proud of some of the words coming out of my mouth with DS right next to me! Now that I think about it... I hope there weren't any little kids outside playing- I was pretty loud towards the end there.

I love football SOOOOOO much, I'm going to the Seahawks game tomorrow. Sounds good, right? BUT...

I hate the Seahawks.

They're playing the Rams, meh.

BUT...

Just to be around my beloved NFL in any shape, size or form makes me :

Qwest Field is amazing too and I do like Bulger and Holt.

I'll post pics if you all want.

It'll be fun to see pics!
