Yet another reason the NFL rocks

    The 'best team in the NFL' is currently getting whooped in Arizona of all places. Granted it's only the second quarter, but Arizona 14, Chicago 0 is what I love about the NFL.
    Last week: Rex Grossman for MVP! (2 picks, 1 fumble against a poor D)
    Last week: 86 bears d or 2006 bears D?

    Reality: Parity rules.
    This week, the shitty teams decided to show up.


    Arizona could go on to lose this game, but they are definitely going to ruin a team or two down the road.

    Biggest puzzle: Miami. WTF? Anyone? SI had them as the Super Bowl champs ...

    Have you heard of this thing called the NFL Week 6 Running Thread?

    It's pretty cool. You should check it out.

    Not really week 6 here, amigo.

    Just used 2 qtrs to think bigger picture.

    Great to have the NFL back.

    Yeah, parity...not like a team that lost 119 games three years ago could ever make it to the World Series

    Great to have the NFL back? Where did it go?

    Sorry dude but I think football fans can come up with a reason every single week why parity rules.

    Why, yesterday you could have pointed out that three dog-ass winless teams won. Viva la parity!!!!

    Edit: Spnited rocks! :D

    um... the monday night game is still part of week 6, isn't it?

    yeah, and what team was the last team to take more than a game from the tigers when it really mattered? parity!

    It's good to know NFL games are still fixed.

    Yeah, but he had the Vick thread zapped, so he had to try and start another one. When at first you don't succeed ...

    And another reason why the NFL doesn't rock:

    The Bears' loss doesn't mean a thing.

    And neither would a loss next week, and another loss next month, and another loss the month after that. Just get in the playoffs. 15-1. 13-3. 11-5. 10-6. Whatever.

    If there's no real reason to even be nervous or upset when your team is losing . . . your sport doesn't rock.

    Sounds like a 162-game MLB season, or an 82-game NBA or NHL schedule. Didn't the Steelers just play what everyone called a must-win game for their playoff chances, in Week 6 no less?
  11. Do you all hate A_F that much, or are your opinions on the NFL that out of step?

    Wait lemme answer: A little of column A, a little of column B.

    (And for the record I'm a college basketball guy first, with baseball and the NFL tied for second.)

    The Steelers have lost 3 games, one more than the first-place team in the AFC North.

    Unless 12-4 doesn't get you a ticket into the playoffs these days, "everybody" was wrong if they considered yesterday's game a "must win."
