When I saw many pundits predict New England in the AFC Championship Game and even the Super Bowl my eyebrows raised up a little.

What I didn't expect was for them to struggle mightily against the Bills (23-21) and the Jets (13-10). I don't think they are what they used to be, but now I'm beginning to wonder what's really under the hood with these guys.

Again that New England luck hits....they are in the AFC East in 2013.

No Gronk or Amendola and that's gonna happen. If Dobson catches half his targets tonight that's a dangerous team. For now they look like goat piss. When they get healthy they'll turn that into gasoline.

i know that divisional games are always tough, but the patriots look like a bottom 15 team after two games despite being 2-0. they barely eeked out wins against teams who are competing for worst in the league - both with rookie quarterbacks and weak defenses. we knew the wheels would fall off sooner or later, but this is ugly.

if your quarterback is hurrying to snap the ball after a potential turnover, you probably want to fire whoever's not paying attention and substitutes in an entirely new package.

I guess I could have started an NFL Week 3 thread but this will do.

Two thoughts about tonight's Chiefs at Eagles game that have little to nothing to do with the actual game.

First, they cut away so we could hear an ESPN International call of one of the touchdowns. The commentator was named Roberto Abramowitz.

Secondly, did anyone watching at halftime sort of half-expect the Philadelphia faithful to boo Donovan McNabb during the jersey number retiring ceremony? Even just a smattering? I did. Glad I didn't hear anything, though.

For the first time in 22 years it will be said "Pittsburgh is going to the playoffs" and not mean the Steelers.

Random thought #2: The Texans are 1-1 vs each team in the NFC West for a 4-4 overall record vs the division. After this season we'll lucky to be 6-6 v the NFC West.

Well, there's the Rams and Cards. I wouldn't worry too much unless Kurt Warner comes out of retirement.

I just don't trust the Texans right now so if we blow it against either of those two teams I feel 1-3 vs the division a strong possibility.

Things can turn on a dime, though. Just look at the 49'ers on and off the field at the moment. Pretty major turn of fortunes in such a short time.

I know you're indicating the Pirates but I'm pretty sure the Penguins have made the playoffs recently in Hockey.

They didn't have to make it every year the Steelers didn't. Just one playoff appearance in the past 22 years was all that was needed for your statement to be false.
