I don't know if you saw this because you guys don't pay attention to college football, but Joey's brother, Nick, also a very good lineman, shut it down at Ohio State because of a minor injury because he wants to be good for the draft.

Thanks John. I did see it. I would love to have them both

He might just get traded.

The Packers shipped the running back to the Baltimore Ravens.

Silly boy.

When I heard that yesterday, apparently the Packers' players were still bitching about it a day after the game. I was wondering if that reputation will follow him to Baltimore. It's too bad. I like Montgomery and follow Stanford (We had season tixs growing up).

I've been following them since Plunkett QB'd for them and won the Heisman.

Head coach DJ Durkin was reinstated at Univ. of Maryland. He was suspended while they investigated the death of player, Jordan McNair over the summer during training. By all accounts, it's a terrible move by the review board and the University.

The dead young man's father said he got sick hearing the news.

How can this guy recruit players and tell parents he'll take care of their kids.

Because of the outcry, they fired him today after reinstating him this morning.

The Saints/Rams game was an offensive showdown last night - classic game. Two great teams with the ball, but defensively.... iffy. LA need to recoup against Seattle next week, before the mighty clash with Kansas the week before their bye (which they really will need, being so banged up at the moment).

Yeah, it was a great game. The Patriots/Green Bay game was pretty good - too late for you guys.

Yesterday, I took the kids' ostensible grandmother out to lunch with the kids at a place called Windy City Pizza. As you can tell by the place's name, it has become kind of a west coast bastion for Bears fans. When we got there, it was the 4th quarter, and the Bears had nailed it down. Tons of folks in Bears' jerseys.

One thing it reminded me of: Midwest and East Coast sports fans are so much more dedicated than west coast fans. The south too, for college football anyway. When I would travel for work by myself, I would also head to a sports bar for dinner - conversations with sports fans in the midwest and east coast are so much better than out here. All my friends and I are big sports fans, so I don't notice it that much, but those sections of the country have much less casual fans like the west coast.

I was bringing four drinks back to the table for family and some guy, who was coming my way, did kind of a shimmy in front of me like he was going to knock me over. I told him "What's up with that? Don't make me do an Urlacher on you." It made him laugh, but I got my point across.

So with Dez Bryant signing as a free agent for the Saints, we can only assume someone in the Cowboys organisation believes that giving up Bryant and next years first round draft pick was worth it to snag Amari Cooper?

Interesting. :lol:

That Rams offence is a thing of real beauty . It's inconceivable that in this day of situational substitutions seemingly every play, McVay runs almost the same base set (one tailback, one TE, 3 wideouts) and rarely - if ever- changes it .Yet somehow manages to find subtle ways to slightly alter the player with the ball, the point of attack, the blocking and the misdirection/trap/screen... it's stunning to watch. Seamless yet immensely complicated because of its lack of variation in personnel.

Yeah, I was listening to the game on and off doing errands.

I hate Tom Brady. As I've said, he went to an all boys Catholic high school ten miles up the road from where I lived. I had friends who went there, but they were mostly giant dicks when you'd play against them.

The Rams can win the division this week (11) - the only other time a division has been settled this early was the Bears in '85... they need to beat the Chiefs in Mexico City (I'm sure that decision to give away a home match will be looked at by The Rams now) and the Packers beating the Seahawks in Seattle. So they may have to wait until after their bye week in week 12.

The Rams' secondary is vulnerable and didn't look so good. I think Mahomes chews them apart.

Both are shitty against the run so Gurley may have an edge.

The Rams are really banged up all over - Kupp now out for the seeason too. They need the bye.

Both D's are poor at present - the best chance the Rams have is Gurley as you say, but they'll definitely score points no matter what. The Chiefs will score points, no question. It may come down to last to have the ball!
