So, what's the first impressions of the week 3, 1st half, A Team players?

I think the Patriots big threat is over.

The Seahawks surprised me, I thought they would be tougher.

But, it's just the pre-season, I may be wrong.

Again.......

IDK but watching the Giants v. Jets was painful. Giants sucked the big 1 & the Jets were worse.

Offensive drives by the GMen were horrific & the Defense was worse. Now with Stevie Brown out, I'm thinking it's gonna be a long season for Tom Coughlin & company.

I hope I'm wrong. ..

Sent from the basement. Hey Ma more meatloaf.

P.S., Jurgen, how much beer do I owe you?

McCarthy has said that he's changed his attitude about pre-season...
Less starter play, and more guys trying to make the team play. Also put them in game scenarios to see how they react.

Hope. It works

Nothing really, no connection. I'm a Bears 1st, Saints 2nd (lived in Lake Charles for a dozen years) fan.

The few times I saw them last year I thought they had it going on, but game 3 didn't show any of that.

Maybe it was just the Kawasaki Green.........

I'm a seahawk fan and was just wondering. Yeah they weren't cranking on all cylinders against the packers but they still have the best defense in the league and I'm not questioning their toughness. Lynch is a beast and Wilson is a god send. They'll be just fine this year unless major injuries occur. Loss of Harvin hurts but it's not a deal breaker

Great Moments in Patriots Douchebaggery

Regarding Darryl Stingley:

Quote:
After the game, Madden went directly to the hospital. It was Madden's first instinct to go to Stingley. At the hospital, Stingley had been found to have fractured vertebrae in his neck and was being fitted with a halo brace to stabilize the injury. Our physicians, thankfully, had risen to the occasion. Having overseen a safe transport, they had summoned the appropriate specialists. Experts were now at hand.

But even at the hospital something was dissonant, out of sync. Expecting to find himself among concerned New England officials, Madden found himself alone. No one from the Patriots was there. Not the owner. Not the coach. No one.

Grabbing a phone, Madden called the Oakland airport. Immediately, he was patched through to the New England charter, taxiing out to take off. A more than animated discussion followed. The plane returned to the gate. The business manager was put off.

I think they'll be fine, too. As for the best defense in the league, I think the Bears defense outscored you last year.......

Scored more TD's? Probably did. Just saying the Hawks were ranked 1st in points allowed and 4th in yards allowed last year that ranked them 1st overall. It'll be even better this year with the added pass rush of Avril and Bennett.

Chicago was ranked third. Not bad.

Well, at least that's over.

Those 3rd and 4th preseason games are hard to watch. It's still better than baseball but still...yawnfest.


From what little I have seen, GB's D looks better but that O-Line looks like shit. Thinking 10-6 if they're lucky.

Due to work (sucks) I'm not going to be able to watch the Broncos home opener vs the Ravens.

Haven't seen any pre-season, but don't like how many STUPID FUCKING STUPID off season distractions the Broncos have done to themselves.
