8:15 pm est – Welcome to the coverage of the first regular-season game to be played at the North Texas Football Cathedral
going to be the leader of the NFC East, or are the Giants?
from today. Regardless of McNabb being hurt, giving up 48 points to the Saints
rule limiting the number of do-overs for hitting the screen? What if it happened
like 4 times in a row?
its early season, is Johnny Knox of the Bears going to be a serious candidate
on him at receiver, and if the Jets make the playoffs it will be Mark
actually read all the questions we ask, or just a few. And how do you pick what
ones you answer, just the easy ones? Slacker. See, if you ARE reading this, you
won`t answer it because its not really a question, more an angry
and the conveyor belt with chocolates. (Yes, I am old.)
before the Browns mutiny against Capt Queeg?
Crowder can`t be the first guy to threaten you for doing you job, I mean you
were a lawyer right?
could put me down in less than ten seconds.
deal with Channing Crowder?
he wants to pound me into human pulp. Other than that, we`re cool.
this week look like SuperBowl contenders to you?
out of the game? Why show him in the intro of the D?
or Antonio Pierce. Which will be more dangerous today?
this week look like they`ll get to meet Roger Goodell personally on stage in NYC
make playoffs this year?
Jones picking his nose?
think about the Jets this year?
to the Titans today helps put last week`s win in context. Ryan has his guys
fired up and focused.
9:14pm est – Will Channing
Crowder beat Peyton into a pulp tomorrow?
Only if someone puts “FLORIO” on the
back of Peyton`s jersey.
you`re on NBC you think you`re a fancy boy. “Love me want me.”

49ers continue to find ways to win this year or does their streak end next
Niners-Vikings will be the only game involving two 2-0 teams.
the Jaguars will have to move and if they did would L.A. be the obvious first
place to try to move to?
committed to keeping the team there. Don`t rule out London as a
any Emmy picks for tonight?
starting next week?
to plan for the possibility of seeing 4 different quarterbacks.
dominating performances has Mike Bell really come into his own or will any RB in
NO scheme excel?
don`t think they can plug in Reggie Bush to do what Bell is doing.
Titans give up 34 points to the Texans? I`m a hardcore Titans fan and I am
surprised how mediocre the Pats have become?
Jr.`s favorite NFL team?
get the weekly Pat White update?
Drew Brees. Who is the best quarterback in the NFL?
Roethlisberger. Marc Bulger. (Just making sure you`re paying attention.)
Plaxico Burress playing with?
the most overrated quartberback in the league?
think of The Office season premiere?
voice of the Taco Bell dog.
most valuable defensive player in the league?
seven sacks in two games. That said, I think it`s Troy Polamalu. Then again, Ray
Lewis delivered a play for the ages today. So basically I can`t make up my
video just get interrupted by a 13-year-old boy eating Subway and talking about
facts straight. He`s 17 years old.
Taco Bell dog took one for the team and is no longer with us.
filling for a soft or a hard taco?
happended in Ray`s great play?
Ravens up by five. Ray shot through a gap in the line and flattened Darren
Sproles for a loss.
9:40pm est – Which
character on The Office would hit the bottom of the screens in the Dallas
his potato gun.
think the Lions get there first win?
with seeing the Wildcat offense after this season?
Chad Johnson is going to have another game like today`s this season?
and one touchdown, I sure as heck hope so.
that Albert Haynesworth has lived up to his hype?
MVP this year?
Bucs, Falcons, Rams, Jaguars.
Falcons are 2-0 not 0-2.
9:57pm est – Do you think Jessica Simpson was invited tonight?
Yes, by the Giants.
9:59pm est – Why was that not a touchdown?
Play is dead when whistle blows. At least they can overturn the decision to call it an incompletion.
10pm est – Nice TD!!!!!
That was shades of Lynn Swann in Super Bowl X.
10:01pm est – Mike, what`s your prediction of this Sunday night football game?
I picked the Giants on Thursday, so I`m sticking with that one.
10:03pm est – Getting nauseous watching the rotating background behind Michaels and Collinsworth.
You`ll be OK, Donovan.
10:03pm est – Are Chris and Al in a new NBC blimp?
They are riding in the stomach of Larry Allen.
10:04pm est – Who do you like in the NFC North?
Vikings have been very methodical and conservative. Few throws down the field. Very controlled and deliberate.
10:05pm est – Mike can we tour PFT HQ?
We operate out of a van down by the river.
10:09pm est – Why do I hate Eli so much more than I hate Peyton?
Because you realize Eli doesn`t care that you hate him.
10:10pm est – Mike are you at the game tonight?
No. I couldn`t find the place.
10:11pm est – Do you think the Broncos have a chance of winning games?
Um. They`ve won two already.
10:17pm est – Can
you help clairify the ball moving when a WR hits the ground rule? I`m
confused and the refs are making it worse. NE`s TD counted but the same
play that reversed.
It`s simple. The ball
can touch the ground if the receiver maintains possession of it. If the
ball moves, the player does not have possession of it.
10:19pm est – Impressed with Favre at all this year?
He hasn`t really done a whole lot. But that`s what they needed with that running game and defense.
10:20pm est – Do you think the Eagles defense will hold up throughout the season?
Do you mean like they held up today against the Saints?
10:22pm est – Is that guy who won Micheal Irvin`s Fourth and Long, a member of the Cowboys?
He is on the practice squad.
10:24pm est – If you held the first pick in the draft, would you select Tim Tebow?
Only if I needed an
overrated, oversized quarterback with no experience taking snaps from
under center and thus no ability to run play-action.
10:27pm est – The Meadowlands has Hoffa buried in the end zone. Who do you think is buried in the new Dallas stadium?
The Shamwow guy?
10:28pm est – Cutler redeemed or is the jury still out on him?
He`s a work in progress.
10:30pm est – Whos better, Brandon Jacobs or Chris Johnson?
Different styles but I would take Johnson. Faster and less wear and tear on the body.
10:33pm est – Why aren’t they calling any of these facemasks?
That one they missed on Ahmad Bradshaw was shameful.
10:35pm est – Is Eli the most overrated quaterback in the NFL?
Kurt Warner might be. With those wideouts, you don`t need to be Johnny Unitas.
10:35pm est -
Who do you think will win the NFC East?
I thought it would be the Redskins. I`ll go with the winner of tonight`s game for now.
10:38pm est – There should be some type of system that makes the refs more accountable for flagrant missed calls.
There is. They get graded out like players. If they screw up enough they get fired.
10:39pm est – Will Noel Devine be an NFL success?
He could be another Darren Sproles. Durability will be the key.
10:39pm est – Do you think Los Angeles would EVER have a football team?
I agree with what Al
Michaels was saying. The fans will support a team. There needs to be a
first-rate stadium. Like the one they`re in tonight.
10:40pm est – What about the AFC North?
Not sure the Ravens can beat the Steelers, but the Ravens look good right now.
10:40pm est – Florio I dare you to answer this question.
Thanks. Now my tongue is frozen to the pole. Schwartz!
10:40pm est – AFC East predictions?
Jets, Bills, Pats, Fins.
10:43pm est – I am just joining, has the screen been hit?
Only by Dwight Schrute’s potato gun.
10:45pm est – NFC North predictions?
Vikings, Packers, Bears, Lions.
10:45pm est – Will Jason Garrett ever be a head coach in Dallas?
I think the next time they change coaches, Jerry will clean house.
10:46pm est – And why was he allowed to bring in a gun?
He is a part-time volunteer junior law enforcement official.
10:47pm est – I’m sitting in the crowd with my laptop. Couldn’t miss the Mike Florio Chat though.
Just make sure Ricky Manning, Jr. doesn`t see you working on that laptop.
10:50pm est – Will Flozell Adams get a fine for the cowardly tripping penalty?
Yes, he should. $10,000 at least.
10:50pm est – What was the last big midseason trade in the NFL?
Roy Williams and a 7 to the Cowboys last year for a 1, 3, and a 6.
10:53pm est – Will Jason Jones get fined for that punch?
Yes — he can be fined by the team for getting ejected, and he will definitely be fined by the league.
10:55pm est – How long before Culpepper takes over for Stafford?
I think they have to ride it out with Stafford.
11:01pm est – Did the Raiders make a huge mistake by letting go of Jeff Garcia?
asked to be cut. Besides, they weren`t going to let him play this year.
They`re not ready to give up on JaMarcus Russell.
11:01pm est – Why do you think the Giants didn`t stand behind Burress and wait for his sentence to end if they know he clicks with Manning?
Um, because Plax is going away for like two years?
11:03pm est – Who would win a fist fight between Adrian Peterson and Brandon Jacobs?
I think Adrian Peterson would beat up everyone in the league. All at the same time.
11:04pm est – How long before Romo gets replaced?
With . . . Jon Kitna? Never.
11:06pm est – Considering how Kolb played today, when McNabb is ready again and Vick can play, don`t you think the Eagles will drop Garcia?
Once McNabb is healthy, Garcia will be dropped. They won`t carry four healthy quarterbacks.
11:10pm est – Who is the worst starter in the league?
Garrard or Delhomme.
11:11pm est – I thought the Giants couldn’t do it without Plax?
Someone needed to step up — so far Steve Smith and Mario Manningham are doing it.
11:12pm est – Who is the biggest draft bust of the last 5 years?
2005 has plenty of them, but the first overall pick in that year`s draft (Alex Smith) is riding the bench.
11:14pm est – Is Bulluck the best LB in the league?
Um, Ray Lewis? Patrick Willis?
11:14pm est – Which teams could go 0-16?
Lions, Rams, Browns. Lions play the other two.
11:15pm est – Was today just a hiccup in the Steeler`s Super Bowl run?
Only one Super Bowl champ has not lost a game.
11:16pm est – Why isn`t Hakeem Nicks higher on the depth chart? He`s a beast and was incredible at UNC.
Why isn`t Hakeem Nicks higher on the depth chart? He`s a beast and was incredible at UNC.
He is injured and out for a couple of weeks.
11:16pm est – Is it too early to call Reggie Bush a bust?
Seriously? It`s too late to not call him one.
11:18pm est – All time greatest running back? Emmitt or Barry?
Walter Payton. And Adrian Peterson has a chance to top them all.
11:18pm est -
Mike, what game are you looking forward to most next week?
Niners-Vikings. Only game with two 2-0 teams.
11:22pm est – Does Tony Romo remind you of Danny White?
Tony Romo reminds me of Gomer Pyle.
11:24pm est -
You think the Pats would have won had Welker played today?
Julian Edelman did well in his place. I think the outcome would have been the same.
11:26pm est – Who do you think had the better offense: 98 Vikings, 07 Patriots, or this years Saints?
98 Vikings. They simply choked one game earlier than the Pats.
11:28pm est – Best player to ever play the game? Jim Brown or other?
11:29pm est – How many rushing yards does A.P. run for this year?
Matt Birk recently said Peterson could rush for 3,000 yards.
11:31pm est – With all the players dehydrating in Cowboys Stadium, how hot is it on the field?
Maybe it`s the radiation from the huge TV screens.
11:32pm est – You think there will ever be a female football player? Like kicker?
I think if they did
the same testing they`re doing on that South African runner, they would
have determined that one of the Gramatica brothers was actually a
11:38pm est – How large is your HDTV at home?
I have the Michael Scott flat screen.
11:41pm est – You think the Cowboys would have much of a running game without Barber?
Yes — they have Felix Jones and Tashard Choice.
11:44pm est – Do you think Tynes will miss this?
I think Jerry Jones will be throwing his shoe at it while in flight.
11:44pm est – Do you think the Giants will win?
Yes. This is the guy`s job. Make the kick.
11:48pm est – Mike it has been fun, thanks.
Hey it`s been a blast. Time to shut it down. Been going non-stop since 7:00 a.m. I expect you to pity me.
