Always good to see the Steelers go down. It's even better when Chicago wins.
True dat. Unfortunately I had to go to bed when the Bears were "down" to a 7 point lead & missed the 4th quarter action.

I wonder where Timby is.

Go Ohio teams! Both are up over NFC North teams at the moment.
At least the sting of my Packers losing to Cincy was lessened by seeing the Vikings lose at home to the lowly Browns.

Probably a good thing the Vikings are playing their "home" game in London next week.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Nice to see the Patriots getting their shit together on offense a little. I'm staying on the "WRs will get better, and then reinforcements will come back" bandwagon. Looks like the kids are getting a LITTLE confidence, which makes it all easier. They appear to have the tools, just also needed to get over the nerves. We'll see where it goes, then hopefully get Gronk, Vereen, and Amendola back, which should lighten their load a bit.

And I know we've played weak teams so far, but pretty happy with the defense's effort. They've helped by stepping up while the offense goes through growing pains...

The 49ers look terrible, and so do the Rams. Thursday night's game will have an early season smell of desperation. The loser goes 1-3.
I know it's still early, but I get the sense of Thursday being a "must-win" game for either team (hopefully the 49ers). What sucks is the 49ers have so many injuries, and now with this whole Aldon smith thing, it seems like they are in trouble. When is it too early to become concerned about a team? When that team is supposed to be a favorite Super Bowl contender, I think now is a good time to be worried. That loss yesterday sucked.

Watch them tie. That'd be hilarious.

Cowboys win, and all the other NFC East teams lose. It could be worse.

Agree, but lets keep in mind that it is still early.
Wasn't it 2 seasons ago that K.C. and Buffalo started out scoring like 40 points a game for 3 or 4 weeks, then tanked the rest of their seasons?

16 games doesn't seem like a lot, but you're right, it's a long season.
Yeah but it's how they have been winning that lends me to think these wins are no fluke.
For the record, no one is calling the Broncos' wins flukes. It's just that history has shown that a team looking terrific in September does not gaurantee that team will look the same way in December or January.

Even as a Raiders' fan I found it easy to root for the 9ers back when they had Walsh and Montana. But these 49ers... not so easy to root for. For me, it has to do with Jim Harbaugh.

He is a great coach but also is such a monumental a-hole -- always flapping his gums about this player or that coach. I find myself now being a bit pleased everytime some team knocks that smug look off Harbaugh's face.

Well, I've always hated the 49ers, but I agree with you about Harbaugh.

What's his deal?

Oh, thats right, Rams fan.

I don't get him at all. He was that way when he started at Stanford. Him and Pete Carroll HATE each other so you know there were some particularly tight jaws on the 49ers sideline after their game against Seattle. Good.

Broncos over the Raiders tonight 37-21 .... and it really wasn't as close as that. Manning looked beautiful and Welker had a nice game. That offense seems to really be humming along nicely. Pryor has surprised me in how he's looked so far. Not exactly All-Pro, but he's makign a game of it with some nice runs and a a few decent throws

Decker had a breakout game (finally) this season, catching 8-8 for 133 and a TD.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

That one catch-n-run of Decker's was a thing of beauty, too. If they keep their RB's healthy, that's a scary offense.
