Come on Bears! Another NFC North Division title would do me just fine.
Tony, your poor Fins D couldn't stop Charlie Batch!!?!?!?!
What's the deal?
yes, the Steelers D is still tough... but... Batch had a good game against the D... Can't feel good about that!

Not a great start but didn't expect it last night to be honest.

Nice to see Maurice Clarett appear in the latest Madden game.


Also quality:

Just watched Dolphins vs Steelers via Sky Plus. Still screwing over the officials' failure to see Sabin's flag on the TD that put them 21-17 up. Having said that, it was still a decent start to the season, and before the two interceptions Culpepper looked well settled in the aqua green and coral orange.

elliott 09-09-2006 02:43 AM

Aqua and orange = Cool...

I only stayed up for the first half and recorded the rest.

It was quite gutting, but not too unexpected. To be honest, if NS had thrown the flag better, and it got reviewed, they probably would've scored anyway.

Any of you lot play Madden? (I know Strath did, once upon a time)...

Get involved:


elliott 10-09-2006 01:56 AM

I play Madden... but I'm wank.

And I play on PS2

Strathclyde Eagle 10-09-2006 10:45 AM

I'm still playing Madden 2004. :sob:

Give it a few years and I'll probably have time to play it more often, once my daughter is taught how to play it. ;)

I've just decided to watch 9ers v Cards.

There's all the other games on.

Chief Brody 12-09-2006 05:04 PM

Yep, saw the Scarlet 'n Gold finally show some signs of better things to come. Two costly fumbles giving the Cards 14 points (although they gave as 7 back! :D ), a poor holding call on Harris negating a 52 yard TD by Antonio Bryant, a poor missed FG by the normally reliable Joe Nedney and we still almost put the game into OT.

Plusses -

Alex Smith finally showing that he should be a starting QB
Frank Gore - 83 yards rushing @ 5.4 and 86 passing and 2 TD's
Antonio Bryant - 4 catches for 112 yards in the 2nd Qtr - should have been 164 and 1 TD!:veryangry
Vernon Davies 32 yard TD beating 3 Cards in doing so.
Signs of an improved pass rush.
Solid offensive line, even after 2 starters left in the 1st half through injury.
Some real fight!

Negs -

2 Costly fumbles.
A secondary that looks dreadful in zone defence.
Too many costly penalties (inc Bryant's taunting call negating a 46 yard completion).
Still give up too many big plays defensively.

Ah well............... GO NINERS!

Seahawks scrape through their season opener - field goal with 3 seconds on the clock!

Yes, they were heavily critised over their "performance".

Strathclyde Eagle 12-09-2006 09:59 PM

Personally, I don't think it was an accident that the schedule had Seattle down to begin their season in Detroit. It was almost like saying, "You moaned about the Super Bowl that much, let's send you back to Detroit as quickly as possible!"

Read in Peter King's column that the Seattle OL isn't what it was last year. Alexander barely got over 50 yards on Sunday.

elliott 13-09-2006 10:18 AM

Hutchinson is at Vikes now.

Looked good too

Strathclyde Eagle 13-09-2006 01:25 PM

Indeed he did. Shame ESPN didn't know who he was.

elliott 13-09-2006 03:14 PM

My dad thought that was hilarious.

Benzhiyi 16-09-2006 01:27 AM

Finally finished watching Vikings vs Redskins on Sky Plus tonight (I tend to watch fifteen segments of games whenever I have the time) and thought it was a cracker. Brad Johnson looked in great nick and the Vikings should have had it wrapped up long before the nailbiting finish. Bottlejob from John Hall on that last gasp field goal though, huh?

elliott 16-09-2006 01:35 AM

Dropped Brad Johnson from one of my fantasy teams.

Replaced with Leftwich, probably a good call!

James 17-09-2006 10:02 PM

Anyone watching the NYG v Eagles game (hit the red button and choose from multichoice)? It's a very exciting finish.

I am very pleased that we have a choice of games this Season. Last year, I often felt that Sky had selected the wrong game.

Strathclyde Eagle 17-09-2006 10:11 PM

Oh, how I hate the Jills. :bash:

Glad to see the Culpepper trade is working well. I think the only thing he's quarterbacked successfully in the last two years was the love boat. :bash: :bash: :bash:

James 17-09-2006 10:28 PM

NYG v Philadelphia now in Overtime. Looks like the Eagles may have thrown thown ths one away.

Entertaining game.
