No, this thread isn't early. Football week starts on Thursday now.  biggrin  The Dolphins and Panthers open up Week 11 in Charlotte tonight. Both teams are 4-5, but I think the Dolphins have more to play for as their only two games behind the Patriots at the moment in the AFC East, and New England can expect a tough game from the Patriots who are also only two games behind the Patriots.

As for my teams, the Giants play at home against Atlanta, hoping to end that 4 game losing streak. The Falcons are probably out of any chance at a division championship but could still be Wild Card contenders. The Giants, only one game behind the Cowboys in the standings mathematically, are much farther behind in a psychological sense.

The Bengals travel out west to play the 2-7 Oakland Raiders. I'd like to think this will be an easy win but as they say, "Any given Sunday". The Steelers also travel out west to play the other 2-7 AFC West Team, the Kansas City Chiefs. I'm sure both the Bengals and Steelers are looking at these games as "must wins", especially when looking at who the other team is playing - the Bengals need to win to keep their one game over the lead the Steelers while the Steelers can't afford to lose anymore ground to Cincinnati, already needing to PASS Cincinnati in the standings, as the tie-breaker would go to the Bengals if both teams finish with the same record.

And an on Sunday, the 2009 Toilet Bowl will take place at Ford Field in Detroit. The 1-8 Cleveland Brownies will travel up to Michigan to play the 1-8 Detroit Lions. One team will move to 2-8 only because someone has to win (well, I guess I could see this game ending in a 0-0 tie, and both teams go to 1-8-1).

It's the SD Chargers at Denver Broncos playing for first place dominance in the second annual Ed Hochuli Bowl.  duck  The Chargers have to feel really good about themselves coming back from the dead in "The Miracle,PT2.But the SAN defense is still a little suspect by letting PHIL get back into the game last Sunday,but the front line protected Rivers and it was great to see LT do some good running.

Go Chargers!

I sincerely hope that they can lay some beating on Kansas City this weekend. THey don't have any big kick or punt return guys on there, do they? Pittsburgh's kicking unit sucks when it comes to covering kick returns. If winning football games solely depended on special teams, I think Pittsburgh's record would look similar to that of the Chiefs IMO. Yeah, it's that bad...

I think after this year, we should pursue a new kicker. He can't tackle worth crap, and he has an anger management problem that has landed him in hot water with the law twice this year...

Oh yea, and why did they take two of the best special teams players (Harrison and I forget who else) off of special teams? Are the Steelers trying to lose games now and give its city and fans reason to complain here? What gives?

Aaron Rodgers threw for 344 yards with two touchdown passes and Ryan Grant ran for 129 yards and a touchdown as the Packers survived a late scare by the 49ers and held on for a 30-24 victory at Lambeau Field. And then the Browns fell to Detroit 38-37 in the final second, losing the battle between two 1-8 teams.


Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

Well, I guess it's a good thing I didn't watch this abortion of a game. Maybe NOW Tomlin will completeley revamp his kick coverage unit...

150-plus yards, including yet another returned for a TD is enough to make me puke just about. KC, congrats on the win, but the Steelers I think are in serious trouble here. This is a broken team. To top of the disaster that unfolded this afternoon, Ben is hurt...

Dear Mr. Tomlin...

OVERHAUL THE G###D### SPECIAL TEAMS UNIT, ESPECIALLY THE KICK RETURN UNIT!!! LAST YEAR IT WAS THE OFFENSE, BUT NOW IT"S SPECIAL TEAMS. DO NOT FIX IT, IT IS BEYOND REPAIR...

IT NEEDS OVERHAULED!!! WAKE UP TOMLIN, PLEASE!!!

Oh, and prevent defense... YEAH IT DOES NOT WORK!!! I DON"T CARE WHAT THE HELL HAPPENS TO POLAMALU!!!!

For as smart as Tomlin and LeBeau are, they should not be letting garbage like this happen...

Normally, I wouldn't get this upset over a loss. I wasn't when they lost to the Bengals last week, because that was a winning team. Kansas City is WEAK, WEEEAK!!!

Sheesh!!   

Kudos tho for exposing the biggest joke right now in the NFL, the Steelers kick coverage unit and the idiot prevent defense that seems to replace the talented one whenever Polamalu is hurt...

Yeah, I just threw the Steelers into the shredder. That's the kind of fan I am. When they fall way short of what they are capable of, well they get what the deserve from me... I know I am being very harsh here, but there are no excuses for that. This team is in serious trouble and drastic action here I think is necessary...

Notice I am not jumping ship and rooting for someone like the Saints or Colts here. I am a true Steelers fan who is supporting a derailing team...

Another week, another loss... this time to the Lions...

Exciting game nevertheless.. Quinn was 21 for 33 for 304yards and 4 TDs

Lions won it in :00 due to a pass interference.

I still think we'll make the playoffs, but we'll have a worse record than last year, more like 10-6 or even 9-7. I don't think this team will fall off the face of the earth. Far from it. Tomlin simply won't let it happen. Today was simply a lack of effort, especially on defense. Between the kick return and the next-to-last play of the game that set up the winning FG, effort was sorely lacking. Tomlin admitted as much. I just felt like Denny Green did after the Cards imploded to the Bears in 2006, that's all.

Only the Browns can get whistled for an interference penalty-and a questionalble one, at that-on a Hail Mary jump ball as time expries, then lose the game on the next play, 38-37.

What galls me is that the guy the officials called the questionable call on in the end zone, was 10 yeards from where the ball was thrown, and replays show he clearly didn't do much of anything to warrent a penalty-espeically on a play that decided the game.

Both Matthew Stafford and Brady Quinn showed that they can put up points against woeful defenses, and Stafford won that battle-although on the play that was called interference in the End Zone, he got plastered and looked like he might have separated his left shoulder. Thankfully, X-rays were negative on his shoulder.

Browns now, realistically, have a chance to win only 3 games this year, but I think they'll lose out. Then, we get to start from scratch again, from the Front Office on down, again next year.

What a sad, sad team.

I have to give credit to Tomlin tho for keeping his calm. This team needs to play with emotion and vigor if it intends to make it to the playoffs. I hope they can win out the rest of the way, but to only finish out at 10-6, it will still be quite dificult to make the playoffs considering how the AFC is... Watch Cincinnati finish with a 14-2 record. I'd bet anything they'll play with more passion and vigor than the Steelers played with today at KC...

Jesus is Sanchez horrible! He started out good but is in real danger of turning into a bust. Some coach needs to step up. Not that the Jets have a real coaching staff.

Thanks, Oakland! Heh, both lowly teams have upset two AFC powerhouse teams today. While the Steelers imploded in the 2nd half to lose in OT. Yinz guys made sure Cincy wasn't going to have an impressive lead in the AFC North race!!

Altho, with New England and the Colts easily securing the top two seeds, with Cincy being a likely candidate to take the 3rd seed and probably the chargers taking the 4th. Would DEN wind up with the 5th seed? No wait, PIT would wind up with the 5th seed because of their heat-2-head loss vs PIT... Regardless, who else would be a challenger with PIT right now? I am sure there are several...

Stafford was 26 of 43 for 422 yards, 5 TD's and 2 INT's. The 5 TD's are the most every by a rookie QB in the NFL.

Quinn was 21 of 33 for 304 yards, 4 TD's and he played error-free ball. The killer, looking back, was when rookie RB Chris Jennings dropped a beautifully thorwn ball from Quinn late in the 2nd quarter. Hit him right in the hands. That ended up being the play that cost the Browns the game.

Ouch! That I can empathize with. As usual, the thing that proved to be rather toxic to Pittsburgh was yet another kick returned for a TD. Unfortunately it had to be the OPENING kick! They came back before the half to make it 17-7 PIT, so to say it was won and lost on the opening drive would be silly. However, they went into that horrid prevent mode on Defense in the 2nd half. How else does a team such as KC come back by scoring 10 points? Either way, that kick return proved to be a deciding factor, much like that dropped ball...

It looks like it was an offensive battle there, meaning that the defenses were virtually nonexistant! Usually, putting up 35-plus points a game should be a sure win, but that's if your defense can effectively hold the opposing offense in check... Duh, I know...

It looks like statistically, the Mighty Quinn had the better game: higher completion percentage (64% vs 60%) and had no turnovers. Too bad for that one play!! Hopefully your team's WRs can fix the dropped balls problem, while I hope PIT's kick return unit gets an overhaul...

Well the Giants ended a long losing skid (thankfully, but just barely). But the Bengals looked like the Bengals of old.  mad  I think the Bengals took the Raiders too lightly, thinking they'd be able to roll through their next three games (Raiders, Lions, and Browns) before facing the Vikings. Only bright side is the entire AFC North lost today. A shame that the Bengals blew a great chance to gain more precious ground over Pittsburgh.

As I said in my first post, both offenses showed they can move against really putrid defenses. Unfortunately, there aren't many of those in the NFL-not on the level that hte Lions and Browns are.

Wait... How is Josh Cribs? That is really stupid that the coach called that play last week. To think that if Cribbs wasn't hurt and if they played the Steelers instead of Detroit. I would've bet my pay check that Cleveland would have won, considering that Cribs already returned a kick for a TD against them earlier.

Back to Detroit, he probably could have proven to be something of a wildcard in that game, as I would be willing to bet that Detroits special teams unit is dreadful...

Mangini should be fired for doing that to arguably the best player Cleveland has. He should have been fired just moments after the injury occurred!
