    What a game by Sproles against Indy. The Chargers are really playing inspired football right now. Ravens and Titans have the makings of an all-out defensive brawl in Nashville.

    The Cardinals and Panthers could be a good one, but Carolina is so tough at home. The Eagles-Giants game adds yet another chapter to a great rivalry.

    Some great matchups this weekend. I kind of want to see Arizona and Philly win so AZ gets another home game.

    I think the Chargers run stops this week. They’ve beat the odds before though.

    i’m still trying to find out about boldin, i will let u know!

    sweet to see some eagles up above :)

    the penalties against the colts in the end basically marched the chargers down that field. we’ll see this weekend. who knows, might be another one full of upsets!

    the defensive holding or pass interference was evident, but could have been overlooked in my opinion. the facemask was awful. The dude wasn’t going anywhere. Just make the tackle.

    as always lester’s, perfect! those are the ones that make you shake your head & wonder WTF they were thinking!

    I agree about those penalties especially the facemasking one. No wonder they’re sitting at home now.

    For the record, I’m for the Panthers and Eagles in the NFC. I gotta stick with my home state in NC, and former state in PA.

    I’m not really going to pull for anyone in the AFC, but I still want to see some good football over there.

    No kidding CK.
    I’m rooting for Philly and Tennessee I suppose. I like Fisher. Balt and Pitt have won recently and I HATE Rivers.

    the ravens have 2 original guys left, stover & ray ray…i’m no fan of either! except ray ray can hit almost as good as dawk..ALMOST :)

    Pitts, it’s really hard to watch ben take those hits week after week!

    so pretty much like you, philly & the titans ~

    I LOVE Ed Reed. He’s simply awesome.

    he is indeed, i’m just stuck in old school mode up above! lol!

    when i think of the ravens, i think Ray Ray & Air McNair! even though Steve spent the better part of his career with the titans, when he did come to Baltimore, it was a breath of fresh air for that team!

    i will say this, i like flacco big time, he was another one of my picks out of the rookie class! he did play awesome yesterday, didn’t seem to make the rookie mistakes that matty made.

    Matt had to win the game whereas Flacco had to not lose it. Big difference.

    Very true! Matty had more glory this year then Joe did, which almost didn’t seem right. Time will tell for the 2 of them, but they are both solid QB’s that alot of ppl. said were busts……they need to look up Mike Mamula to learn about the word

    BUST

    lol!

    I’ll work up the sit/start guys as the week goes on, but at first glance I like Warner, Delhomme, McNabb, DeAngelo, J-Stew, Fast Willie, Westy, Jacobs, Steve Smith, Fitz, Hines Ward, Heath Miller, Gates
