I don't see why. I normally find Collinsworth as nauseating as Jess does, but his rant on Robinson and the bullsh** hits he's done on Eagles receivers the last two seasons was spot on. Hopefully he's not playing next week.

Yeah, Collingsworh dramatic commentary got on my nerves too.

Probably for different reasons. Mine is because he laid another dirty, dirty hit - them, because he sucks.

One of my fantasy leagues I'm matched up against a virgin. It all comes down to a Falcons win gives her the win, a Eagles win gives me the win. Either way I'm playing a virgin, it's a win/ win for me no matter what. God I love football!

Who knew the Ravens D would be outplayed by Cleveland's (shut up if you did...lol) and Owen Daniels would show up TODAY.....when I decided to sit him and play no points Heap. #hatebeingcompetitive #grrr

If you can kick a field goal, head down to Miami or Dallas this week. Miami's kicker has missed from 21 and 34 today. Dallas's missed a 21 yarder from the middle of the field.

My disgust with grossman is alive and kicking! Thank god for Gano! Go Team!

when the mighty 49ers are pimp slapping you up and down the field , well  Dallas -We have so many problems !  Bet Jerry is kicking everything within 4 inches of the ground.

Carolina stopped on 4th down, then Rodgers to Nelson for 84 yards and the (likely) game icing score.

Also, Denarius Moore of the Raiders had the catch of the day by far.

Yea, being in Minnesota, watching the Vikings blow two double-digit halftime leads, it makes me feel a little better.

 I'm thinking Peyton Manning in a neck brace may do better than this.

Nick Collins was carted off on a stretcher after a head/neck injury. I haven't seen the play yet, but the descriptions were not good.

Congratulations to Donald Driver on becoming the Packers all-time leader in career receiving yards.

Three turnovers by the Panthers this half, but the Packers are having trouble turning those into TDs. Bunch of field goals have put the Pack up 23-13.

49 yard TD Rodgers to Jennings. Now ball in the red zone after Woodson picks off Newton for the 2nd time today.

Also, nice to see Raheem Morris remembered after a week and a half he has Legarette Blount.

Skins have been inside the Arizona 40 and have scored 10 points. That game should be over by now.

Inside of 2 minutes, Packers had 4th and 4 around midfield and went for. They didn't get it, but to me, they made it clear they're scared to death of Cam Newton and feel they need points quickly. 13-7 Carolina at the half.

Packers down 10-0 before Rodgers touches the ball. Also, Chicago and Pittsburgh are leading, while Minnesota is about to take the lead. Also, Jamaal Charles is hurt, screwing over my fantasy team.

So yeah, lovely start to the afternoon.
