Saints not looking good today at all. RGIII, on the other hand, is looking absolutely baller.

Why did the Titans not field a defense?

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

Drew Brees is killing me. He's my first round draft pick (#5) this year, and I fully expected video game numbers from him. Instead, he's got 175 and a TD through 3.5 quarters of play. He's got 7 minutes, I want to see some numbers.

EDIT: Ask, and ye shall receive. 33 yard strike on 4th down! He needs to work on those dropped passes, though. He's 17/37.

EDIT EDIT: Annnnnd... an interception. I hate fantasy football.

I hope Timby is happy with the results of the Bears game, I sure am.

A 20 point win, and only the first offensive series was bad. Would've been a 27 point win if not for that pick-6 four miniutes into the game.

Vick through four picks. The Eagles absolutely did not deserve to win. They only won because they were playing a fucking college football team.

^ Exactly. And the defense can play even better than they did today.

The Texans didn't play so hot, but still beat the Dolphins by 20 points. We got 24 points just on turnovers. The Texans run defense didn't look so hot, and next week we got Jacksonville and MJD to contend with.

A good pass rush, solid defensive play, and a fantastic running game? Are we sure that was the Patriots?

I miss Mike Martz already. Isn't he a commentator for one of the networks now? Hopefully he'll get to work a future Bears game or 15 so we can hear his thoughts on why the Bears' offense struggled so mightily, scoring only 41 points in their first regular season game without him.

NFL rules sure didn't make it easy to tune in and listen while on vacation here in France (just listen, not even watch) but I managed to find an AM radio feed and catch some garbage time near the end of the game since the weather's kind of icky outside.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

MIN-JAX was 3 2/3 quarters of awful football. The last three minutes/OT were outstanding.

Stats wise, Ponder's read a bit better than he played. Same with Gabbert: he mist a wide open receiver in the endzone on a drive that netted a FG. He makes that pass, the end never happens.

Still, happy with the Vikes win. 4-12 Is looking like a real possibility.

Akers kick at the end of the first-half in the GB/SF game was pretty epic.

I hope they can hold on. Having GB start the season in last place would make my week.

I will say the winner of that game visits Lombardi this year--my premature pick of the year.

The Lions win! I was worried until Stafford started driving down the field. If he can stay healthy and play like he did in the second half of the game, we might be able to challenge Green Bay and hold the Bears off.

My Rams had his number in the first half. After that last FG I thought we had a shot, but our defense didn't show up.



And in other great news, two starting offensive linemen go down in the first game. One looked pretty serious.
