The return of NFL quick thoughts!

  • How does Mike Martz still have a job?
  • Ty Law gets an interception and the Jets get blown out. Perfect.
  • Broncos lose to the Dolphins. If Mike Shanahan retired with Elway, some people would still call him a genius.
  • Two touchdowns for rookie Alex Smith! He really was worth the number one pick! He's a Tampa Bay tight end who was drafted in the third round? Nevermind.
  • So is Ray Lewis gonna hire a hit on Kyle Boller or Matt Stover?
  • Impressive win for Drew Bledsoe, but I think that Burger King mascot is in his head.
  • Was that the same Larry Johnson who had to take his diapers off? He looks like a new man.
  • Why I don't gamble and why I avoid making predictions on this site: I thought the Steelers would struggle with Bettis and Staley out.
  • But I'm not always wrong: Green Bay lost (I've been saying they'd struggle) and Mike Williams caught a touchdown pass (I defended the Lions' controversial pick of Williams).
  • The Colts are up 24-0 with 90 seconds left, so Manning tries to throw a 40 yard pass. Dungy must have Manning on his fantasy team too.
  • For those of you sad about the Patriots not playing on Sunday, at least you had their commercials. My grades:
    • Troy Brown Dunkin' Donuts: B+ (great acting, pretty good idea, but not as good as Brown's classic United Way "I got Bingo!" commercial),
    • Tom Brady and O-Line Visa: C+ (great idea, some wasted opportunities.)
    • Generic Patriots Coors Lite snow train: F (corny. Fans being overheated in Foxboro isn't the first thing that comes to mind. Don't think this commercial will make much sense in December)
    • Diet Pepsi Machine with real Patriots: D (I didn't give it an F because they tried to be creative, but it just didn't work).

That Troy Brown Dunkin Donut commercial might only have been up North. That Bingo commercial was classic. We need Bill to do a commercial. Hell, even Romeo is on the Cleveland networks.....well, at least on the Cleveland Indian telecast. He is driving a tractor in some fast food commercial.
