  1. Ngata did not have to help his cause, he will get paid no matter what.

    If Ngata and Suh played on the same team the opposing offense would just have to kneel three times and punt. No point in lining up.

  2. Asomugha had an ‘uneven’ day? He gave up 1 amazing circus catch that was a questionable catch in the first place, there just wasn’t enough video evidence to over turn it, and he gave up a questionable penalty on an otherwise uncatchable ball. Thats it. I’m impressed with his debut. Samuel had 2 INTs that he dropped, and a Safety had another INT that was in and out of his hands. Asomugha forced Bradford to make some questionable throws.

  3. Raiders offensive coordinator Al Saunders said this year’s Raiders team has more speed than the “Greatest Show on Turf” Rams.

    ——————–

    Of course the Raiders have speed. Forty times are the primary criteria they use to evaluate players.

    As fast as the “Greatest Show on Turf”? Maybe. As talented? Not even close.

  4. Ngata needed contract help?? Please. I may be a Steelers fan, but Ozzie is the man and he knows what Ngata is worth.

    Sunday wasn’t a good day for the Steelers linebackers? No kidding.

  5. I hate Ravens, but Ngata is a beast. Raven’s looked pissed yesterday….Good for them…I am a Bengals fan, so I bleed hatred for the steelers and their fat 6burg fans….Go Ravens…for now

  6. Ngata let everyone know he was a man on the Ray Lewis pick. Just watch that play again, mind you it was shortly after he drilled Mendenhall causing a fumble, and see how he absolutely dominated the Steelers.

  7. “Communication was a problem for the Cardinals defense on Sunday.”
