    Could it have possibly taken the refs longer to figure out that intentional grounding call? Spotting it and figuring out the down took nearly as long as the rest of the damn quarter.

    They should of talked to the coach asking if they wanted to take a timeout or run off the clock first thing.

Nobody in their right mind can argue Luck right now is better than Manning. Luck vs RG3 vs Wilson is a different animal and no matter what happens this season cant be judged for a few years more. So I dont think Luck was the right or wrong choice, least not yet.
    Cutting Peyton wasn't ridiculous. Peyton was owed $23 million. The salary cap is around $120 mill. The Colts currently have a $111 mill cap hit for 2012-2013, meaning they would have had to cut an extra $14 million out of their current roster to keep Peyton on top of Luck. You can't tell me that the current Colts, minus $14 million worth of players, but plus Peyton would be a Super Bowl team. And if you're not winning a Super Bowl, you're rebuilding. They had to cut him.

    Whatever noise these shitheads are making when Indy has the ball that sounds like two giant pieces of wood being slapped together, really needs to stop like right fucking now. i guarantee Indy isn't being affected by it, but I'm about to dive through this screen and start slaughtering fans until it stops.

    The Ravens are there for the taking but the Colts don't have enough to take advantage I think.

    Boldin's TD will seal it. I was kind of looking forward to a Colts vs Manning matchup with the media circus, ah well.

    Looks like Baltimore are finally waking up from the slump they've been in for a few weeks. Not sure they'll be enough for Denver, might well go down to Manning vs Lewis.

    Denver will beat the Ravens by a couple of scores.

    Ya I wouldn't bet against it going too differently than their game a couple weeks ago. The emotional high from Ray's last home game is going to be gone and Denver is just flat out a better team. Plus Manning almost never loses to the Ravens. The Brady/Manning showdown is inevitable. It can not be stopped and it is going to be awesome.

    3-0 so far. Go Seahawks.

    By the way, I want whatever super-powered electromagnet things that Anquan Bolden has in his hands.

    I get the feeling this game is going to be freaking awesome compared to the other three crapfests so far this round.

    This field is so bad... maybe now with a running QB they'll invest in an artificial field.

    Seriously ... all of that money spent on that stadium and the field looks like a backyard you'd see in a trailer park.

    You can barely make out the Redskins logo.

    Wow, all the talk of the Seahawks in recent weeks seems to be a completely different story to this opening quarter.

    Even if Cousins has to play, the way the hawks defense is being torn up and its only going to get more painful.
