    Football is back!

    About time, too.
    Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the universe.

    Peyton is amazing...so much love for him going all the way back to Tennessee days. It's really been a joy to watch his entire college and NFL career.

    Peyton was amazing last night! The Ravens didn't look so good but they have a lot of new pieces and a lot of times the Superbowl champ has a letdown the season after they win.

    Ah, not real football; you mean American football.
    I hear outside a million panicking birds, and know even out there comfort is done with; it has shattered even the stars, this creature at last come home to me.

    Any thoughts on this? Tim Tebow refuses to switch from QB for NFL team, report says.

    If this is true, I am shaking my head. I think Tebow is obviously a good football player but maybe he should be a little more humble and take advantage of a VERY rare opportunity. You'd think he would be really to use his abilities in whatever way he could help a team. Especially with the TE situation that the Patriots has.

    One example: Tony Dungy was a quarterback at the U of Minnesota that was more than willing to play safety for the Pittsburgh for (I think) two seasons. And he got a Super Bowl ring in the meantime. Then he didn't do too bad as a coach cause he won another Super Bowl ring - as head coach of the Colts.

    Yeah. You know, the one that is actually watchable. Not the one that goes on and on forever and ends up 0-0.

    Thank goodness it's back. This has been a long off season (I say that every year)

    I don't know what the Patriots were doing this weekend but here's hoping that isn't all they've got. It could be a long season if it is.

    My record is broken. I've attended in person six NFL games. In the first five the home team won and got at least as far as the Conference Championship game (Jets '08 - Jets '09 - Green Bay '10 - 49ers '11 - Giants '11). So of course the Washington Redskins had to break my streak yesterday! : And I took my dad (a lifelong Skins fan) to the game, got awesome ($$$$$$$) seats, only to watch them break his heart. Sorry, Dad!

    I can't bear to comment on my Giants except to say it's a good thing they recently won the Big One, though they already seem to have squandered most of their goodwill with the fans by being just awful so far this season. Yes, the Giants fans are a very "what have you done for me lately" bunch. If my Gmen aren't playoff-bound, then I hope they tank the season in spectacular fashion and get a really high draft pick. Enough with the 9-7, just barely missing the playoffs stuff.

    Weird seeing teams like Kansas City and Miami at 3-0, but good for them. I hope Miami mounts a meaningful challenge in the AFC East this year. And good for Alex Smith making the most of his second chance in KC. Who knows, he could make Jim Harbrough regret trading him away.

    On another note, I'm going to predict that the Broncos and one of the NFC South teams (either Saints or Falcons, probably Saints) will be duking it out in SuperBowl XLVIII. Eli won a SuperBowl in Peyton's house, so now maybe Peyton will win one in Eli's house.

    I live in Giants territory, which isn't too much fun as a Patriots fan. But I am also a huge Peyton Manning fan (I spent too much time living in Indiana), so tonight I was to hear our local news anchorperson basically beg to trade Mannings for just one week. Peyton is that good and Giants are just that bad. My Patriots may not be great this year, but at least I'll have Peyton to cheer for.

    I can't believe how bad the Giants look. Absolutely no protection for Eli who is spraying the ball everywhere. However, Eli can console himself by knowing he still has more rings than his big brother.

    Broncos looking good. Wish Redskins could trade their old coach back to them.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    Judging by the way the Broncos are playing, that may very well change in February!!

    Neither Brady nor Peyton would stand for an o-line as bad as what Eli has been dealing with. It's been mediocre for years, but now it's a total sieve and the Giants don't have enough tight ends and power backs to help out with chip blocks. This is also why the running game has been suffering. David Wilson is a talented RB, but the o-line can't open any holes. If they can't fix the o-line this season, then the offensive coordinator needs to change up the scheme, mix in more of the short passes, slants, etc.

    Since there seems to be a lot of Manning fans on this thread, I had a chance to watch "Book of Manning" last night on ESPN. It was a documentary focusing on Archie Manning, his career at Ole Miss, a bit about the Saints, but mostly his time as a father and how he raised 3 sons so successfully. If you have a chance to watch and are a Manning fan, I highly recommend.

    What if you only like one of the Mannings, but not the whole family?
