    Timby, Knox wasnt going to get any balls thrown his way anyhow. Cutler has his sights locked on Marshall on virtually every play. His next look will be to Bennet and then he will either need to take off running or he will be sacked. No time to look for a third guy behind that horrid O line.

    Anyone have any thoughts about Eagles's owner Jeffrey Laurie stating that he would not extend Andy Reid's contract if they had another 8-8 year? Granted, I think it was a given, but I'm still shocked he said it. If anything, it's a distraction without a real benefit since Reid will have to start discussing that instead.

    Broncos waived Adam Weber, the QB who I've rather liked this off season and last. DAMMIT, I really hope this doesn't mean we're stuck with Hanie.

    I'd like to think the NFC West will still exist at the end of the season :p

    Being a Pats fan is enough to make you go nuts with the seemingly odd personnel moves that they always seem to make.

    The Bears go with only 2 QB's on the roster....and no fullbacks :wtf:

    And that after McClown actually had a good game against Cleveland Thursday night.

    They have Matt Blanchard and a fullback on the practice squad, though.

    Cowboys are going to miss the playoffs anyway. It really doesn't matter. ;) One of those teams that are hyped up every year, but can't win the big games.

    Believe me, I get it, I was there in the Meadowlands last year to watch the collapse. I actually predicted Dallas to be an 8-8 or maybe 9-7 team this year and miss the playoffs. I think it's going to take 11 wins this year to get the wildcard in the NFC.

    I think Dallas is a little bit better than your 4-12 prediction though.

    My Texans are finally getting a little love this year. We'll have to see if it's deserved or not. Personally, I think the Texans win the AFC south again, but fail to make the Super Bowl. I just simply don't trust Andre Johnson or Schaub to last the whole year. We got a hell of a running game and a good defense though. :)

    I'm weirded out by the fact that they were considerate of the national convention.

    I'm weirded out that the Cowboys appear to have showed up tonight, while the Giants still think its preseason.

    Weird to have a Wednesday game, but since I don't care for either team, didn't care who won. Curious about Dallas WR Kevin Ogletree, though. He had a helluva game and I never even thought about him while drafting my fantasy teams. Wonder if he's the real deal or his big night was just a fluke.

    I checked my league, and CBS says he's owned in 3% of fantasy leagues... which means he's super 3rd string.

    I had Miles Austin, but kept him on the bench. 73 yards and a TD, I hope my other guys can do better.

    The Texans are everybody's trendy pick this year. Kinda like a few years back when people picked Arizona 2-3 years in a row and then they went 4-12.

    I think Houston will make the playoffs, I mean how can they not when the division is that bad, but not the Super Bowl.

    There are some really one sided divisions this year. The AFC East, AFC South, and NFC West all have one really good team and 3 stinkers.
