    And once again, the Green Bay Packers defense make Jay Cutler cry.

    It's a shame that the only fantasy league I have them in is the one that I won't win a game all season in. Oh well, at least Jay Cutler was once again proven to be the horrible QB everyone who isn't Bears fans thought he was.

    I can't tell you how smug my roommate was last Sunday after I told him several times it was a terrible decision to draft Brandon Marshall. All he could tell me tonight was shut up

    Cutler isn't the best QB ever, but he's still the best QB the Bears have ever had. Don't believe me? Look it up.

    Eric Kramer holds several single season QB records for the Bears. Red Grange is probably the best QB the team ever had, but that's not exactly very modern. If Culter had his entire career as a Bear, he'd own most QB records already.

    Is he elite? no. Is he good? Yes. Is he flawed? Yes.

    Also, his o-line let him down. Green Bay basically wouldn't let him get settled and flustered him, and his receivers didn't do him any favors either. The Bears D did a phenomenal job of keeping the game in reach.

    You guys, is this funny?

    While I'm not sure why I opened it at all, I was just left with a colossal 'huh?' after reading it. Is there some football knowledge I needed to get it?

    watch the game. The only reason he ever had time was uncalled holding penalties. The Bears O-line is bad, really bad, and I knew that pre-season.

    Jay didn't do himself any favors, and he was bad, but it wasn't all him. When he did do something, others let him down as well. It was bad all around for the Bears O.

    I hate to say it, but you guys are going to get slaughtered. Notre Dame is very good this year, and the only reason it wasn't worse for us is how good our Defense is.

    possibly more absurd is how he still fell like 100 yards short of the national record.

    talking about the NFL now, Tampa Bay's head coach is just a plain fool. his rationale for that end-of-game play on Manning's kneel-down took away so much of his credibility. either he's naive or a damned liar.

    I believe this guy is the best QB the Bears have ever had. Of coarse one wouldn't think that with his pedestrian stats, especially looking back from the era of 3 5000 passers last season but leading a team to 4 championships does stand out.

    Ah, the joys of watching Chris Spencer play like a child in a game of men. I've had the displeasure of seeing him do this for years when he was a Seattle Seahawk. Glad that he didn't re-sign with them.

    Speaking of the Seattle Seahawks, glad that they beat down Dallas. Something about that stadium up in Seattle that makes Tony Romo look like a fool.

    True, I did forget him. Not that it helps.

    The 49ers look virtually unstoppable. If Ted Ginn plays (or Kyle Williams doesn't suck), they're probably Super Bowl champions. I don't know why they aren't the favorites, especially after flat-out dominating the Packers at Lambeau.

    It's going to take a lot more than that to convince me that Notre Dame is very good. Like maybe beating Purdue by more than a last-second FG. They're not that good. The Big Ten just sucks this year. A lot. Wisconsin is an absolute joke and Ball probably regrets coming back already.

    Michigan State is the only legit team in that conference and it's clear Maxwell is not going to take them very far. Thanks for beating Boise, though.

    USC is who I thought they were. Soft up front on both sides of the ball led by a QB whose draft rating is based on upside rather than production. Don't get the Barkley for Heisman talk. Geno Smith and Tyler Wilson look much better.

    With USC out of the picture and probably staring at two forthcoming losses to Oregon, FSU will lose to a couple teams they shouldn't, Notre Dame will lose to the California schools (and probably Oklahoma), and before you know it, the Oregon media love affair will be in full motion. The difference being that Oregon may actually deserve it.

    1 game in the regular season does not a champion make. They're good, but I think they just haven't had their flaws exposed yet. I think Houston is better as a team, with a little more explosion no offense and defense.

    The Loss of a ton of talented WR's and TE's is almost as much to blame as losing Cousins, to be honest. There were so many dropped catches.

    I wonder when teams will learn to respect the Giants. First it was Green Bay players claiming that their playoff loss last year was because they lost the game, not that the Giants played well. today, it's Cam Newton saying the same bull****.

    The Eagles. *Sigh* I told myself I wouldn't watch the Eagles all that much. Reason being, is because the Eagles have been a joke lately. Looks amazing on paper, but awful on the field. Our first two games, we've apparently played awful forty-three minutes in the game, but amazing last two minutes. Come back team so far, yes.

    And Michigan... I'm a Michigan fan for college football, and yes... The Big 10 is a joke this year, but going to support those Wolverines. Let's see how the Dame/Michigan game goes today.

    I think you cleared the conclusions mat completely on that jump. Texans, Chargers, Ravens, Patriots, and Falcons have looked more dominant than the 49ers as of two weeks into the season

    Did you football freaks see this? Matt Schaub of the Houston Texans gets part of his ear torn off after a hit.

    Aaaaaaand I'm guessing he just went straight back into the game :(

    Yup! He got clocked pretty good. And yeah, he went back in after missing one play...I mean, he only lost part of his ear. You can play with half an ear. :D

    Schaub is old school like that, much like Ronnie Lott who removed a broken finger to go back in the game instead of being out 15 weeks.

    As for the severed ear, chances are it'll be auctioned on eBay with Mike Tyson winning it. After all, a psycho's gotta eat.

    So it's okay with you guys that he took a hit vicious enough to knock his helmet off and take part of his ear with it, and just went back in like nothing happened? He could have been concussed right then and there.

    This is why I don't get football.
