But first, a haiku about today's game:

Schaub is getting killed
Concussed and in la-la land
Someone please help him!

Now, on to the list:

1) I remember when William Perry was considered a huge DT. Compared to Keith Traylor, Grady Jackson, and Pat Williams the Fridge looks a little light in the arse. Those three boys are freakin' huge. I mean, they look like they could eat a person. When they line up at the LOS, the other defensive players have to resist their gravitational force to keep from orbiting them.

2) Looks like Carolina might have figured out the most effective way to beat the Colts offense: Keep them off the field with long drives. In the first quarter, Peyton had the ball for something like 3 minutes. Maybe the Panthers can... wait, nevermind. Colts win.

3) Start Echemandu. Let Dayne and Green alternate being the backups based on health. Yeah, I'm basing that on one game. Yeah, he's only got 62 yards. But hey, he's got a little wiggle and a little burst which is more than Ahman or Hunger Pain Dayne have shown. So just play him already.

4) Dismantle the Bengals and start over. Just scrap all of it, coaches, players, even the weight room equipment. I just can't help but think that they might be better if they just started over from scratch.

5) The Dolphins can thank Jay Feely for keeping them in the Glenn Dorsey sweepstakes with a missed FG and the most poorly executed onside kick I've ever seen. Ever.

6) Okay. That Matt Turk "I'm so lame I can't even fall on the football for a safety" action just hurt. That followed by Dan Dierdorf's commentary on the play and the damn "Viva Viagra" commercial that followed immediately made that the longest two minutes of my life to date.

7) If I'm Lane Kiffin, maybe I'm thinking about playing JaMarcus Russell. Yeah, he's a rookie and all that. Culpepper's knee may be solid now, but old boy keeps throwing interceptions. He threw one last week to ice the game for the Chefs and he throws a couple of turds today against the Thumbtacks. Let Russell start getting some reps because at 2-5 in the AFC, you aren't going to the playoffs.

8) So earlier this morning I'm watching some pregame action and they're focusing on the Redskins and how their defense should match up well with New England's offense. They interview a couple of Redskin players and they're all saying the right things and you can tell they mean it. The reporters interview Tom Brady and he's saying the right things too: Washington has an experienced defense, good schemes, lots of talent, yada yada yada. But while he's talking, he keeps smirking like he's thinking "I can't believe they're buying this ******. We're going to kill them!" Um.... NE 52, Wash 7. How's that defense looking now? I'm fearful that the Evil Empire is going to run the table.

9) Could it possibly suck worse for a team than the Dolphins? Your season is going down the crapper and you have to travel all the way to London to get pinned with your next L. Awesome.

10) When that dude from the Chargers pulled that helmet to helmet hit cheap shot on Schaub, I was fit to be tied. I was glad that my son wasn't in the room because I couldn't contain the anger and expressed it mainly through four letter words. I really liked how the team, especially O line, got fired up about it also. What's that? They just took it like a bunch of sheep? Oh, never mind then.

Well, for what its worth, I was mad!

Dear Gary,

Please spare Schaub next week. Don't make him play. Make Rosie line up against the Raiders and try to figure something out with that POS O-line before Schaub gets killed.

Thanks,

Andrew

1) Texans suck!! 3 games in a row giving up 35 or more points.

2) The "pitch" sucks. Yet another reason why you don't play games abroad. Sub-standard playing surfaces.

3) I'm beginning to hate the Pats. Up 38-0 with 4th and 1 at the 8....and you go for it??? Kick the #%$^ing FG *&@holes!!

4) You can't QB from a rocking chair, Vinny.

5) He keeps winning. Yes, despite a great running game and a tough defense, the great one continues to win.

6) It's safe to say the Colts and Pats weren't looking ahead. Too bad the locals get Houston/Oakland next week instead of that game. Unless you've got the Ticket or go to a bar, of course.

7) Who was that streak of Liberty white in the Texans backfield today running at a 6.2 clip? That was nice to see even though it was the only thing worth seeing today.

8) Who dat gonna beat dem Saints? 3 in a row now after their horrible start. They'll get a test next week against J-ville, but here's their remaining schedule after that:
St. Louis
@ Houston
@ Carolina
Tampa Bay
@ Atlanta
Arizona
Philadelphia
@ Chicago
They could very easily get back into the thick of the playoff race.

9) SEVEN Patriot TD's and Moss and Stallworth only have 1 between them. Sucks for my fantasy team.

10) Sunday Night Football is a baseball game?

I'm a big fan now as well. He gave the running game a pulse which is more than we've seen all year.

I'm in a state of reserved optimism I think. Certainly things are looking up and you're right, the schedule is definitely favorable, but given that horrible horrible start and the fact that this same group of players lost to David Carr a month ago (:covri:), I really don't know what to expect at all.

Of course, as far as football goes this year, that's pretty much the norm isn't it?
