    Well they were trying pretty hard for Freeman. EJ Manuel I think will be good, if he can stay healthy. Last I heard he could be out 4-6 weeks.

    0 points against the Raiders... maybe the commentators will stop saying how Rivers is up there with Manning and Brees this season.

    Manning or Brees wouldn't have thrown that pick in the first, all the time in the world to make the pass and he threw it straight to Oakland.

    We all change, when you think about it. We're all different people all through our lives. And that's okay, that's good, you've got to keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be. I will not forget one line of this. Not one day. I swear. I will always remember when the Doctor was me.

    I never get tired of watching that.

Seems they left in the first place because LA wouldn't improve the Coliseum and they couldn't sell it out causing blackouts. I know the coliseum is big but it isn't much bigger capacity-wise than Fed-Ex field or Met Life field in Washington and New Jersey respectively. LA won't support a losing team. They are some of the most notorious fair-weather fans out there.

    Man, that one guy never gets tired of beating the "Peyton Manning is overrated" drum despite all the evidence in the world that it isn't even slightly true. People who think he's the best of all time are taking it a bit too far, but he's certainly the best in the league right now. The only argument that is even worth having is him vs Brady.

    Are things so bad for Oakland fans that you're talking yourselves into the Terrelle Pryor era? In what way is he not a slightly better version of Tim Tebow? At least we can stop hearing about how the Chargers might be a good team.

    Side note: Is it just me or is damn near half the league just not good? The Giants, Jets, Bills, Vikings, Steelers, Bucs, Jags, Raiders, Chargers, Redskins, Eagles, and Rams are all bad. The Dolphins, Texans, Titans, Bengals, Ravens, Browns, Cards, Panthers, Falcons, Bears, Lions, and Cowboys all look decidedly mediocre. Everyone still assumes Green Bay will wake up and become dominant again, we'll see. Same with Frisco. So the actual good teams are the Hawks, Saints, Pats, Colts, Broncos, and Chiefs. That's it. For all the talk about how good the NFC was going to be, they have two teams that look good enough to win the Super Bowl, and even then Seattle better hope it gets a number one seed because I wouldn't want to go to the Superdome with Russel Wilson and that offense.

    I only post the truth about him. He is awesome during the reg season but it's a different tune in the playoffs.

    Pryor can throw a ball a lot better than Tebow, don't forget while Tebow was a great runner, his throwing was terrible. Look at the difference between Oakland last week and Oakland this week, Pryor is carrying the offence right now, and makes watching Oakland fun. That's why fans are getting excited about him, come next season with a full draft and large cap space, Oakland has the potential to get back to playoff seasons within the next couple of years.

    Did he run over your dog while in his Buick or something? You have some serious angst to him.

    Still not sure what to make of my Vikings picking up Freeman, admittedly I'm pretty new to following the NFL, this will be my first full season! Ponder wasn't doing as well as we'd hoped he would be (if he'd started this season like he finished last season we'd be laughing, unfortunately he didn't...) But Cassel did pretty damn good last week at the Wembley game (which I was at ^__^) So could just bump ponder onto the bench and start with Cassel... unfortunately I don't know anything about Freeman other than the recent dramas from Tampa, which wasn't much related to how well he plays, but more him not getting on with people there etc...

    Personally I see Ponder being out for the Panthers game with rib injuries and Cassel to start again. If Cassel does well I see him starting until Freeman knows the plays at least... then who knows? If Cassel continues to do well will they bench him and let Freeman start, or just keep Freeman as a back up?

    I'm going to the game Thursday Night. Why do I have this bad feeling that this is the game Eli and the Giants will put it together and score 5 touchdowns.

    They might score 5 but their defense will allow 6.

    if the Giants couldn't score against Philly I don't see them doing much to a team that just played solid defense against the Saints, holding them to 2 TDs and keeping Brees under 300y
    the Bears just didn't get the takeaways they needed, but here comes Eli, so that won't be an issue

    Does throwing a pick 6 count as Eli scoring a TD? If so yeah i think 5 is about the right number.

    After some thought... Freeman=Ponder=Cassel. They are all mid level QBs to me. If Freeman comes in and is completely different than he was in TB then I guess I'll be wrong on that statement.

    Matt Flynn was released by Oakland. So maybe the Bills can scoop him up for cheap money.

    Also, pink flags are going bye bye after that debacle this week.
