Things we didn’t like on the first Sunday of the season

So on every Monday night’s NBC SportsTalk on VERSUS, Russ Thaler and I will run down five things we liked from Sunday’s games.  There’s another side to that specific coin.

Russ and I will go over five things we didn’t like.

My contributions to Football Night in America and the postgame show are not eligible for such scrutiny.  At least not in that venue.

Besides, that’s what Twitter is for.

    Write it out guys. It’s easier while at work and on the phone to read.

    Agree 100% with @choisbois. Unless your stats say otherwise (video hits vs page hits) you need to make it easily consumable – which video does not.

    You obviously thought that lights out line was very clever, you already said it in your power rankings.

    Who really cares if Vick gets hurt? That’s the big concern? He’s getting all the $ again. Go out and play.

    If “Next Question’s” client, who wants the next big contract, holds two catchable balls it might have been 14 points more for the Birds and a real blowout. Vick spent much of the game running for his life. He and McCoy were the difference makers. When he had time to throw he did a very credible job.

    5 things most true fans didn’t like
    1. no launching
    2. no launching
    3. no helmet to helmet
    4. you have to let the WR make a catch before you gently take him down to the ground
    5. non contact football for WR’s

    Goodell is ruining the game

    WR’s, TE’s and RB’s no longer have to fear catching the ball cuz apparently ya can’t play D anymore without getting flagged. Too many QB’s have passer ratings over 100 and are throwing for 300+ yards.
    In week 1 12 QB’s had passer ratings over 100 and 14 QB’s threw for over 300 yards. These used to be stats only elite QB’s would put up.

    Please let the D play TACKLE FOOTBALL!!!!!!!

    Goodell needs canned!
