I watched Saints vs. Raiders. Easy win for the Saints!!
Then, I saw Cowboys vs. Cardinals. That was an exciting one!

Who thought the Falcons would be 4 - 2 ?? :eek:

I took a beating against the spread this week. I lost all but two games. I had the SF game, but Philly couldn't make a first down to kill the clock. They ended up scoring ten points in a minute and a half.

I can't wait for 10/26. I have tickets on the 33 yard line, second row behind the Eagles' bench. Who would have thought that they would both be in this position. I mean, the Eagles play catchup to the rest of the division? Who would have though that the Falcons would be so good. I am not sure if the bye week, for the Eagles, will be a good thing or not. They don't have a good record after coming off a bye.

Falcons with the rookie at QB are surprising some teams. I lost big on that one today.

I also can't figure the Eagles out. They should not have been trailing the 49ers at any point today, but the game changed when they decided to kick a fifty yard field goal before the second half. It really looked as if SF was going to steal one from Philly. Nolan is a stupid toad of a coach. He made so many bonehead decisions on booth reviews.

I saw the end of the Cards/Cowboys games. Very happy with the end result but when will coaches stop calling those stupid timeouts before field goals? Almost cost them the game.

And loving the night game. NE and Dallas can't lose enough for me.

I agree, I am getting tired of those coaches calling that last second timeout, when a team is about to kick for a field goal! Too bad there no rule for it, but I guess the coaches like to put some extra pressure on the field goal kickers?

Funniest play of the day yesterday (unless you're a Lions fan!) -- watching QB Orlovsky run out the back of the end zone for a safety.

Thank you so much. I have seen the tail end about 5 times today but I have never seen it from the beginning of the play.

E-A-G-L-E-S This week couldn't have gone better for the Eagles.
The end score did not truly indicate the level of play. The Niners put a scare into the Eagles. The Eagles on paper should have killed them, I'd say a double digit lead. The late scoring by Philly extended the reality of the game. These days it isn't hard to outcoach Nolan. The first half field goal attempt was a bad idea...especially kicking into the wind. I really don't know what Reid was thinking on that one.

But...a victory is a victory.

Things got interesting with Dallas and New York losing this week.

What about Washington? Who would have thought that they would be this high in the rankings? Them losing helped a lot too.
