  1. Everyone who says they are done with the NFL are full of it. NFL is still King the new refs are just learning on the job but the old refs quit on them what is the NFL suppose to do cry to the refs to come back with huge unjustified raise and 0% accountablity.

  2. The Eagles offensive line is in big trouble with the Giants coming to town. Hopefully Jeremy Maclin is healthy, so that the Eagles can run more max protect knowing their receivers can get open. Assuming Andy/Marty will actually bring help so that Michael Vick doesn’t get killed, of course…

  3. Picking out the bad signs of the Steelers 1-2 start.
    The Steelers won’t make the playoffs this year.

    The defense isn’t good enough to carry Roethlisberger for the usual five or so 13-9 wins and Roethlisberger sure isn’t going to win any shootouts.

  4. Ben’s QB rating past 2 games (of 3 played this year): over 120, with absolutely no running game at all, none, zip. The defense has been poor in both losses this season, giving up big plays. The defense is the main reason the Steelers are where they are at 1-2. Hopefully getting Polamalu and Harrison back will help. And getting Mendenhall back can’t hurt what is a putrid running game.
