Bubby Brister is back with the Week 6 NFL thread

    Decent game set for Thursday: Colts, Texans.

    Big games for Steelers, Browns and Bengals, seeking to rebound.

    Things get worse for Jets as Peyton comes to town.

    Best game of the week may be Dallas going to Seattle.

    Wiki: He was given the nickname "Bubby" (a mispronunciation of "Brother") by one of his five older sisters. Being the sixth child born was his reason for choosing 6 as his jersey number.

    Baseball was not berry berry good to him: Brister was originally drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the 4th round of the 1981 Amateur Draft. At the age of 18 he played 39 games for the Bristol (Va) Tigers batting .180 without hitting a home run. Brister left baseball to pursue a football career.

    His momma was piece of work.

    NFL Week 6

    Meant to start this yesterday.

    Cowboys-Eagles, Giants-Eagles, Browns-Steelers appear to be the best of a mediocre lot.

    This one was started first, so I assume this would be the official one.

    I wasn't aware the Steelers were no longer in the NFL.
