My only hope for this year's NFL season is that the Eagles don't totally embarrass themselves.  They have so many talented players but can't seem to pull it together.  The only reason I even care is my nephew is their main kicker and it would be cool for him if they had a respectable season for once.

My one wish for the Eagles came true.  They got a new head coach this season.  Now, if they could just get a decent starting QB (that doesn't abuse dogs), I might be able to root for them again!

I know what you're saying.  I really expected Vic to to gone after last season.  No such luck though.

Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?

What a weird game.  Manning looked really good, which will further irritate their fans when they don't win the superbowl again.

This is what I'm hoping for. I have Manning on my fantasy team so I hope he goes on a tear all season, then Brady smokes him in the playoffs again.

I hear you, I had Brady in '07.  It was a dream come true  ;D

That was an enjoyable season opener!  It's good to see Wes Welker in a Broncos uniform.  I liked him as a Dolphin, and hated him as a Patriot.

Pretty cool that Denver's place kicker Matt Prater played at Central Florida (my alma mater).

Did anyone else see the Denver cheerleader twerk for the camera, or was I just hallucinating?  Al and Chris were talking, then got quiet when it happened, then kinda continued on talking, a bit awkwardly.

Yes! I let out a loud, spontaneous "oh yeah!" My wife says, from the other room, "what are you yelling about?  The Eagles don't play til monday!" (I usually only get loud when the Eagles are on)  ;D

No kidding, right? Its one of my beefs about the NFL. If I ran it, you would have to hit pause and squint to see the players.

No kidding.  These first two games for the Pats were supposed to be an extension of preseason, but Buffalo gave them a game.  And the ouch moment when Amendola was grabbing his groin and limping off the field made me hurt.  Thankfully someone rubbed it for him  :o at halftime and he got back out there for the 2nd half!

Chip Kelly seems to be on track. There will be some credence to him after this week with San Diego.

The Eagles did look scary.  Scary fast. 
Can they do that all season?
I was surprised a Shanny coached team looked so bad.

well cry me a Rivers. ;D.  But a bit nervous of the new talent on the Super chargers.
