Damn you know I'm ready when i wake up at 830 in the morning for it (not cause I'm some West Coast Fool who has too :lol:)

Anyway... here's the schedule:

Denver vs Buffalo
+ 1:00pm ET

Thing to look for... how soon will Clown give up on the season ?? :lol:

Pittsburgh vs Cleveland
+ 1:00pm ET

Thing to look for... I think this is a telling one for the Browns and Steelers... we all expect the Browns to suck...but people expected Michigan to be 2-0 also.. now it counts and the same for the Steelers... lets see if they really are going to air it out and how the defense looks....

Philadelphia vs Green Bay
+ 1:00pm ET

Thing to look for.... Green Bay was ridiculously overrated last year... let's see the Eagles slap them back to Earth!

Kansas City vs Houston
+ 1:00pm ET

Thing to look for... how long will it take Herm to run LJ into the ground? And are the Texans as improved as people think they are? If so... they gotta win this one!

Tennessee vs Jacksonville
+ 1:00pm ET

Thing to look for... How will the Titans handle all the changes in the off-season... and how much will the Jaguars make a statement here over who really is the 2nd best team in the divison?

Atlanta vs Minnesota
+ 1:00pm ET

Thing to look for... over/under on Joey Harrington turnovers... I'll be generous and say 4!

New England vs NY Jets
+ 1:00pm ET

Stuff to look for.. Will Randy Moss play? Will he be more useful then Wes Welker? How will the Pats defense handle the two key losses in the last week ? Will the Jets show a crappy pre-season is as useless as people think it is (I dunno I worry when certain teams look bad in pre-season, like them and the Chiefs)....or will it all be ok once the kick off is for real?

Carolina vs St. Louis
+ 1:00pm ET

Things to look for... which Helter Skelter Carolina team is this?? Are my expectations of the Rams validated? Will Masked Fan look stupid for drafting Brian Leonard?? :evil:

Miami vs Washington
+ 1:00pm ET

Thing to look for ... the clicker!!! Well really... I'm curious about the Redskins and how Jason Campbell is progressing.... the Dolphins are already looking for next year, despite some fan delusions!!

Detroit vs Oakland
+ 4:15pm ET

Thing to look for.. TRAIN WRECK FOOTBALL... damn I will be watching this game HEAVILY this week... I love train wrecks like this!! This should be a fun game too in all honesty... and I hope Kitna gets splattered across the black hole!!!!

Chicago vs San Diego
+ 4:15pm ET

Thing to look for... Rex Grossman meltdowns... really this one all comes down to THIS!

Tampa Bay vs Seattle
+ 4:15pm ET

Thing to look for.... Jeff Garcia... if he's what the Bucs think he is... they can be a pain in the ass to the Seahawks... if not this could get ugly!

NY Giants vs Dallas
+ 8:15pm ET

Things to look for... Can Tiki Barber actually talk about the OTHER team in this game? I think we all know what to look for in this one already in all honesty :P

Monday, Sep 10
Baltimore vs Cincinnati
+ 7:00pm ET

Thing to look for.... My Boy Chad Johnson opened his flap before this game:
"Yeah, it's my motto this year, I'm bringing sexy back for this year. It's that Ocho Cinco. It's going to be a beautiful season. Trust me, it's going to be a good year." and Chad went on a nice little tirade on the NFL Network this week about how the Ravens defense stink and they are overrated and he guaranteed his whole offense was gonna stomp a mudhole in them and walk it dry... sounds like a fun game to me!!

Arizona vs San Francisco
+ 10:15pm ET

Thing to look for...which of these teams will get out of the gate and be the darling half the media picked them for... personally I like Arizona a lot this year... should be a fun game worth staying up for!!

And most of all ENJOY THESE FOOTBALL SUNDAYS... they are the bestest !! :)

Pay homage to the INCREDIBLE scoring goalie!!!! :-)

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease

2005 Fantasy Football League Champion... Bow to my Football knowledge !!!!!!

2003-04 NJDevs.com winner of the Masterton Award for Dedication to the Devils(still proud of that one !)

4, Four (!?!?) Time (2005-2008) NJDevs.com winner of the Whoever the damn Award for the funniest poster in the land is named after...(geesh... post pressure, but I seem ok with it!)
TWO TIME (2005, 2006) Award Winner and the man who can show Jeremy Roenick what a REAL loudmouth is all about.... hell this mouth roars SO loud, they retired the DAMN AWARD!!!! But how do you be emotional about an award for being most emotional when you're sharing it?

Anyway... here's the schedule:

Denver vs Buffalo
+ 1:00pm ET

Thing to look for... how soon will Clown give up on the season ?? :lol:


LMAO...I like the Broncos in this one. JP Losman has a chance to drive the Bills to a comeback but fumbles as images of Drew Bledsoe emerge to Clown. :lol:


Denver 23
Buffalo 17




Pittsburgh vs Cleveland
+ 1:00pm ET

Thing to look for... I think this is a telling one for the Browns and Steelers... we all expect the Browns to suck...but people expected Michigan to be 2-0 also.. now it counts and the same for the Steelers... lets see if they really are going to air it out and how the defense looks....


The Browns do suck Crasher. You're nuts. :rofl:


Steelers 31
Browns 10




Philadelphia vs Green Bay
+ 1:00pm ET

Thing to look for.... Green Bay was ridiculously overrated last year... let's see the Eagles slap them back to Earth!


Newsflash: The Packers aren't as bad as you think. Their D is good and will keep them in games this year. The question is what does Favre have left? I'm tempted to pick the Packers in this one but logic says the Eagles will prevail in a close game.


Eagles 24
Packers 20



Kansas City vs Houston
+ 1:00pm ET

Thing to look for... how long will it take Herm to run LJ into the ground? And are the Texans as improved as people think they are? If so... they gotta win this one!


This is a tough game to call because as my Chiefs buddy pointed out, his team sucks on the road and isn't all that good. He thinks they could be 2-7 thru nine weeks. When's the last time that happened? I'm going to go with them here though in a tight game.


Chiefs 20
Texans 17




Tennessee vs Jacksonville
+ 1:00pm ET

Thing to look for... How will the Titans handle all the changes in the off-season... and how much will the Jaguars make a statement here over who really is the 2nd best team in the divison?


Interesting game. But I see the Jags D stepping up here.


Titans 13
Jags 27




Atlanta vs Minnesota
+ 1:00pm ET

Thing to look for... over/under on Joey Harrington turnovers... I'll be generous and say 4!


LOL...according to my buddy, Joey Harrington is better than Culpepper. :lol:


Falcons 16
Vikings 24



New England vs NY Jets
+ 1:00pm ET

Stuff to look for.. Will Randy Moss play? Will he be more useful then Wes Welker? How will the Pats defense handle the two key losses in the last week ? Will the Jets show a crappy pre-season is as useless as people think it is (I dunno I worry when certain teams look bad in pre-season, like them and the Chiefs)....or will it all be ok once the kick off is for real?


This should be very tight. Maybe a FG decides it late.


Pats 17
Jets 20



Carolina vs St. Louis
+ 1:00pm ET

Things to look for... which Helter Skelter Carolina team is this?? Are my expectations of the Rams validated? Will Masked Fan look stupid for drafting Brian Leonard?? :evil:


On paper, it looks like a good game between two teams who should be competing for the playoffs. But the Rams are a very good home team. The Panthers offense might take some time to get going.


Panthers 13
Rams 27




Miami vs Washington
+ 1:00pm ET

Thing to look for ... the clicker!!! Well really... I'm curious about the Redskins and how Jason Campbell is progressing.... the Dolphins are already looking for next year, despite some fan delusions!!


The Dolphins have an offensive coach but will that mean much? This will be an ugly game to watch.


Dolphins 9
Redskins 15


Detroit vs Oakland
+ 4:15pm ET

Thing to look for.. TRAIN WRECK FOOTBALL... damn I will be watching this game HEAVILY this week... I love train wrecks like this!! This should be a fun game too in all honesty... and I hope Kitna gets splattered across the black hole!!!!


I could see the offenses doing alright in this. The Lions 1-0?


Lions 31
Raiders 23




Chicago vs San Diego
+ 4:15pm ET

Thing to look for... Rex Grossman meltdowns... really this one all comes down to THIS!


This should be tight despite Crasher's Rex diss. I'm no fan of his either but that D might keep this close.


Bears 17
Chargers 23



Tampa Bay vs Seattle
+ 4:15pm ET

Thing to look for.... Jeff Garcia... if he's what the Bucs think he is... they can be a pain in the ass to the Seahawks... if not this could get ugly!


The Bucs just don't impress me much. They could be in for a long year.


Bucs 10
Hawks 31


NY Giants vs Dallas
+ 8:15pm ET

Things to look for... Can Tiki Barber actually talk about the OTHER team in this game? I think we all know what to look for in this one already in all honesty :P


Me-ki Barber shall be silenced tonight as will Crasher.


Giants 27
Cowboys 24


Monday, Sep 10
Baltimore vs Cincinnati
+ 7:00pm ET

Thing to look for.... My Boy Chad Johnson opened his flap before this game:
"Yeah, it's my motto this year, I'm bringing sexy back for this year. It's that Ocho Cinco. It's going to be a beautiful season.

The Ravens offense tries but eh. Bengals have too many weapons even for that D.


Ravens 17
Bengals 27


Arizona vs San Francisco
+ 10:15pm ET

Thing to look for...which of these teams will get out of the gate and be the darling half the media picked them for... personally I like Arizona a lot this year... should be a fun game worth staying up for!!


Word of friendly advice to Crasher: Never be high on Arizona no matter what they have. The 49ers are for real.


Cards 17
49ers 31






And most of all ENJOY THESE FOOTBALL SUNDAYS... they are the bestest !! :)

Wow. Jets fans cheering Pennington getting injured. Wow. I don't know if you can get any more disgusting than that.

Derek: Was someone actually supposed to be able to read that?

Belichick came pretty close not only throwing the ball late with a fade pattern to Moss trying to get him another TD, but also throwing the challenge flag to get a one-yard TD run with two minutes left and a 17-point lead :P

I agree though, that was sad. It actually made me root against the August wonder (I do like Clemens and did when he was drafted). Pennington was the best damn Jet on the field today, it's not like we're playing some bum here.

The answer to Crasher's question is the good Carolina. Not a good day to have Steven Jackson on your fantasy team.

I have no words.

None.

EDIT: Actually I do have some words...first thing on my mind now is the condition of Buffalo Bills TE Kevin Everett...who was carted off the field on an ambulance...very tough to watch...latest update is that Everett has a cervical spine injury and he is in emergency surgery at this very moment.

I am keeping Kevin in my thoughts and prayers, poor kid has had nothing but bad luck since his rookie year, I pray he can walk at this point :pray:

Poor Buffalo. I just read how they lost now, no timeouts and Denver manages to snap the FG on time?! I don't remember seeing that before, usually it's quicker to spike the ball no?

Jauron plays not to lose, and that was very evident today all game long, especially in the 2nd half.

They have a strong arm QB in JP Losman but yet it seems they keep him under wraps...if that is the case, Id rather have the backup Trent Edwards start because he is much better at the short to mid rang passing game, is smarter, and can make quicker decisions.

I was going to start a thread about the disgraceful behavior of Jets fans, but I saw it mentioned here already. Shameful and stupid, too. Yeah, root for the leader of your team to get shelved, as if Kellen Clemens is taking this team to the next level.

I heard a rumor that some Jet fans were rooting for a car accident with the Jets defensive linemen in it. :rolleyes:

Holy ****...They can't be worse than Montreal Canadiens fans, or Clevelend Browns fans(Clowns :lol:)


I have one Brown fan friend , and he told me this:


"Our Defense will expose your poor O-line, and your QB will be very pressured, The Steelers are only a flop this year"



After the Browns lost, I went on MSN' and actually I quoted him and just re-showed him what he wrote, I said:


"Hey dude, thanks for describing what'll happen to your team"!!

he was like:"....Oh shut up, When Quinn will be the QB, we'll kill off your team"!

Ill take this a step further, NFL fans at games in general are getting more obnixious by the year, Buffalo fans, I can tell ypou first hand, are as rough of not worse the Eagles fans...trust me on that one....something has to be done to change this...I really do not have much of a desire to go to games.unless it is with close friends etc

You know what has to be done? Other fans in the stands need to have the stones to say something to these animals. Embarrass them. I realize it's kinda hard, because it sounded like the cheerers of Pennington's injury outnumbered the non-cheerers, given how loud and clear it was on TV.

Pennington was asked about it in the post game, and he put a positive spin on it, saying that he was glad the fans cheered Clemens. But he had to have been hurt by that. Guy pours his guts out on the field and has been a good QB here, and the fans are ready to throw him on the scrap heap. What a slap in the face.
