    I am SO ready for football.
    All the other sports are intended to give football players a chance to rest, IMO.

    It's nice to see a football thread that's not about soccer.
    Do not take anything I say seriously. It's just the Internet. It's not real life.

    Football!!

    Michael Vick is looking really good so far. He's gotta learn how to look to the secondary receiver before he breaks to run, but he's got time.

    A starter for really the first time; at least he isn't forcing his passes.

    That's true... he just tucks and runs . He'll be a wonderful QB in a year when he learns how to read defenses. This year he'll just be good .

    Dunn is doing very very good as well. Watch out Tampa, Atlanta is coming!

    Culpepper is a big s.o.b. I didn't realize how much so.
    6'5" x 260 pounds. Bigger than his LB's, as big as his TE's, and damned near as big as his DE's.

    Farve will always be 3 times the QB that Culpepper will ever be.

    Farve is the Hall of Famer... Culpepper is the flash in the pan.

    Packers win! Wooo! And that Chiefs game...

    I'm 10-1 straight up with my picks so far this week. Too bad the Apolyton pickem is against the spread.

    Welcome to the Pit of Dispair

    Our coach is an absolute moron who couldn't coach his way out of a wet paper bag. Our secondary makes Swiss cheese look like adamantium. Even when we're 21 down, our quarterbacks are throwing like it's a Nerf toss at the church Labor day picnic.

    I know exactly what this team needs................

    As do I.

    Damn...Detroit really stinks.
    My picks and fantasy players are having mixed results...gonna be close ones.

    I'm in a email circle with people representing all the teams of the old NFC Central Division. Your words are actually much kinder than what I'm hearing from our Detroit Representatives

    And I agree on your solution... it couldn't hurt.

    Millen and Morningwheg are toast. Which will go first?
    Who the hell cares. I just feel sorry for the sapsuckers who bought up all the tickets in our new stadium and sold out all the home games. They're the ones who are stuck with watching this sad team try to marginally improve on a 2 - 14 record.

    Three hours later, and I'm still absolutely livid about what I saw. I'm going down to the pub and watch some real teams play the sunday nighter.
