When you're dead, you don't know you're dead. It's only difficult for others. It's the same way when you're stupid.
So, when is this "old enough to know better" thing supposed to kick in?

If they stand for the flag I will. I have not watched an NFL game for 2 years.

Watched a little of San Diego/San Antonio. That game was boring and what I saw passing game sucked. Have they had much practice time? Hopefully lack of practice was the reason.

That's the game I watched part of as well...and it was, indeed, a bit boring. I know part of if was the fact I didn't know a single player.

To your question, tho, I believe I heard them say the teams have only been together for like 30 days thus far...it'll take awhile for them to gel.

Everyone is still talking about that hit against San Diego's QB! Did anyone else see that?

Are you meaning the one early in the game where he got wiped out while somehow not seeing the guy coming?

If so, it's amazing how quickly we view hits like that as big/bad/penalty worthy with the way those things have gotten regulated the last couple years.....while just a few seasons ago, that would have simply been viewed as a great defensive play.

Not so sure about the product is good. Real talent was number 4 on the self-promoting list. Hmmm. And Trent Richardson leads in td's.
Coaches seem to be the main selling point.
If you watch let us know what you think.
