1. As this season progresses, I feel like I'm watching a bunch of teams battle for third place. The Colts and the Pats have looked so much better than everyone else that comparisons so far almost seem unfair. Yeah, there are some other good teams, but I just don't think anyone can contend with Indy or the Evil Empire right now. 2. I hate the Cowboys. I hate everything they stand for. I hate them even more for having TO on the roster. I hate watching them win. I now also hate the Giants for playing some really dumb football and allowing self-inflicted penalties to take themselves out of the game against the 'Boys. 3. The Coors Light commercial where the "three stooges" are asking Bill Parcell's about the existence of bigfoot trips me out. Not because I think its funny, but because the "bigfoot" standing next to the stooges reminds me of Solomon Wilcots. 4. The big "but" associated with Green Bay so far this season was the lack of a running game. Well, I watched them last week and this week and I have to say that Ryan Grant looks like he might be able to give the Pack enough of a spark to make folks respect the run. Grant went for 119 against a stingy Vikings run D that kept LT in check last week. 5. I'm calling it now: Brian Billick is fired at the end of the season. No, that's not a huge gamble as far as statements go, but I'm still making it. 6. Everyone keeps talking about how the Steelers could sneak up on Indy or the Pats. Cleveland gave Pittsburgh all they wanted today and, true enough, Cleveland has been rolling on offense right now. So said, I still remember how New England toyed with Cleveland a few weeks back which makes me seriously doubt that Pittsburgh could knock off NE. But hey, I'll guess we'll find out for certain in week 14. 7. I really thought that Miami might actually get a win this week. Heck, I even watched a couple of drives where Jesse Chatman was running well and Lemon looked decent. Buffalo's D looked gassed and I thought "Certainly, certainly this is the week that the 'Phins get a win." Nope. Miami sure is taking this draft position thing seriously. 8. Will the real Detroit Lions please stand up? 9. Congratulations to the St. Louis Rams who finally got off the snide against the Taints. I'm hoping that Kubiak and Co. took notes on how to violate that Saints pass D. 10. To quote Hoth-Boy "The bye week sucks." It does. I know our boys needed it, but man, it does suck.
