    I hate to say it, but I think Whitlock was right concerning Culpepper from the get-go. He's not starting today. Harrington is ...


    ... Granted, they're saying it's related to injuries, but that doesn't take away from the story.

    Culpepper came back much too soon. It's obvious he sucks is not near 100 percent.

    Oz, you like the Steelers chances tonight? I don't.

    1-3 here we come! :mad:

    Good lord, I haven't been following the NFL enough this season. This amazed me:

    Are they really ready to give up on Daunte already?

    I actually do. Martyball blew it for the Chargers last week in Baltimore. And when you need a quarterback to make plays late, who would you rather have, Roethlisberger or Rivers? That's what I thought.

    EDIT -- Anyone still not think the Bears are legit. And you can't even say, "Oh, it's the Bills," because Tennessee is beating the Colts 10-0.

    That was nice of you, Pube, to delete your post declaring Culpepper "superior in ever way" right after Harrington started carving up the Pats. Don't worry, I saw it.

    Harrington made a bad read on that interception, but he looks so much better than Dante right now, it's crazy.

    Vikings won't lose to the Lions today ... or will they?

    The next time my local CBS affiliate wants to understand why it is DFL in the ratings, it can take a look at its programming accumen. Instead of showing the team 3 hours up the road with the best following in the area, enough so that it has a radio affiliate here, lets watch the Bills get cornholed in Chicago. ::)

    This is crazy, against the No. 1 rusher in the NFL, Chicago has given up 16 total yards rushing at half. Oh, and Losman has been picked off twice in throwing for just 59 yards. Bears 27, Bills 0. Wow.

    After last week, I may have to start drinking the Kool-Aid even if this week it is just Buffalo.

    Chicago is for real. They won't be losing at Soldier Field, and it'll take a hell of a good team to beat them on the road.. I'm guessing 13-3 and homefield throughout, barring injuries

    Here's my question, in your book, is Chicago a failure if they don't win at least one playoff game? Or are they a failure if they don't make it to the Superbowl? Or do they have to win the whole thing?

    I subscribe to the idea that every season is a failure unless you walk home with the biggest ring or trophy. Just interested in other's thoughts.

    I'm not a fan, I just have to watch them every week. Right now, they're fully capable of winning the NFC title. As far as disappointing.. I'm not really sure. I guess it'll be a disappointment if they don't win a playoff game. But they'll be fighting Philly for homefield down the stretch.
