I don't understand how the Panthers can justify pouring so much money into the running back position, its the opposite of what every other team in the league is trying to do
Seattle game was really good. Russel Wilson hopefully showed that he is a strong contender to the majority and has a fair shot with Flynn.
Unrelated news.... Chad Johnson was arrested for domestic violence. Guess that wraps his career. Maybe he'll go back to Ochocinco after this.
He allegedly headbutted her. That's some swagger right there.
Okay, the Hawks. Flynn and Wilson both looked freaking great last night, especially Wilson. Backups are backups, but he put up 200 combined yards and two touchdowns in a half on 12 for 16. That toss to Braylon was great. Hope he ends up working out for Seattle too. Seriously I can not praise Wilson enough. He should amazing ability to throw on the move. He is way faster on the ground than I gave him credit for. If it wasn't for the Flynn contract I seriously see no way he wouldn't be the starter. He is going to be the steal of the draft. Plus their new jerseys actually look damn good. I openly mocked the highlighter trim when they were revealed, but it looks damn good in action, especially the pants stripe.
Yeah I was JUST about to post (thanks Conscript). Watching Sportscenter, the Seahawks look really good. Both QB's did well, and I didn't even know they had Braylon Edwards. That just leaves the defense, we know they have Lynch to run over defenders.
Good start for Luck. 1-1, 63 yards, 1 TD.

The Rams are going to be lolbad this year if they look like this every game.
I agree on the jerseys 100%. When they revealed them I wasn't sure, but on the turf they look great. I always had issues making out people with the old ones, these I have no problem.
Another person that shined really well is Turbin. He didn't get a lot of yards but the effort he put into those yards was impressive. I like the guy so far. Being able to see the TE's actually get some plays other than blocking was reaaaallly nice. Last year sucked with the O-line.
Oh man I just realized those games are gonna be even more intense with T.O. on Seattle...
I hate to be that guy but...
Its the preseason, relax. The Colts would lose every preseason game for years then come out in the regular season and dominate. It literally means nothing. If Flynn/Wilson/RG3/Luck whoever else thats new and unproven start playing well against players that are actually fully trying then start getting excited. Till then take it all with a grain of salt.
Eli and Big Ben dont win without that defense playing well. And anyone else notice ever since the Patriots became about offense instead of defense they havent won? I dont think Brady is getting worse (honestly to me hes got better since then) but there are other positions that play big roles that a lot of times get ignored when it comes to QB success.
Johnson got cut which is no surprise, even a front office as incompetent as that in Miami can make that call
the NFC West is the place to be for washout receivers
