    The Steelers' O-line looked like it was on life support. Kind of felt bad for Big Ben....and I don't even like him.

    As a Steeler fan I am also just as mad at the coaching staff for a lack of adjustments. Hell, 6 sacks in the 2nd quarter, and you come out basically doing the same things? You are going to get one of the better QB's in the league destroyed.

    There's no doubt that the NFC east is the toughest div in football. This should be a fun season all around though

    I didn't get the sense of what they did at the end of the game. Why not take the field goal and then try for the onside kick. We also knew they wouldn't win every game. Hopefully they learned something today.

    Cowboys- 27

    Grant held to 3.5 yards a carry. 5 sacks and 0 picks on Rodgers.

    Not a horrible prediction.

    As I said before the SuperBowl goes through the NFC EAST, best teams in the league by far.

    I hope so, I agree, horrible decision making at the end. However, I gotta hand it to the Eagles D they were dominant.

    I feel bad for Flacco and the Ravens next week, he is going to get crushed

    Oh Yeah!!!, Our defense handed out some licks of their own yesterday. If not for their play a massacre would have happened btw, Everyone knows how much we love Baltimore aka the "Real Cleaveland Browns"

    The Jets are about to get run out of San Diego. I think someone should introduce Brett Favre to his recievers.

    My 49ers are 2-1 ! Not only did they win but they looked like a disciplined and balanced team. I know it was the Lions we beat but I'm just ecstatic about having a winning record and seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.

    I was shocked by the Dolphins win over New England. The Philly win didn't shock me but I was surprised at the way their defense annihilated Big Ben and the Steelers offense.

    Can someone please explain to me why I just lost with my fantasy team?

    I had Terrell Owens and Thomas Jones, and my opponent was done, and I was down by 5 points.

    Those clowns couldn't get me 5 points? WTF.

    Alright TO, you're forgiven. TJ, you suck.

    Yea I lost by a point in a league because TO did absolutely nothing, would have been the second 3-0 team too. F

    Wish they gave out points for drawing double and triple coverages which let guys get open and helping guys to score on downfield blocks.

    Thanks! I'd forgotten about that. Barber gets a free fumble for the way he played that game. What a beast!

    a beast he is..you dont see a running style like his in the nfl. what scares me about him is he unfortunatley might have a short career because of the way he fights and takes out defenses.he might hurt himself bad. but, felix jones is always a great compliment to barber.

    You'd think that....but he never gets hurt. I actually think he hurts the other team's players as you always see a safety of LB down after a run play.

    You're right, jones is a great compliment.

    As good as the Cowboys are, they have the mantle of getting over the playoff choke factor so, this is all preliminary for them. Tough situation to be in when you think about it.

    Agreed. No different from the Colts 2 years ago. They are a young team, but they grew up a lot last year.

    I agree that we need to win a playoff, but I don't know if it's so much a choke factor. We got beat last year. Fair and square. By the champs.

    Mark it, we will be representing the NFC in the SB.

    When it comes to the Cowboys, everything is larger than life. Two facts hurt your situation.

    1. You weren't supposed to lose at home after having a week to prepare for a team you beat twice.

    2. The last time the Cowboys won a playoff game, Troy Aikman was the quarterback.

    Let's wait till game 8 before we make too bold of a projection.

    Cowboys will get better as they get more players back, Hurd should be back this weekend and he's the 3rd receiver moving Austin to 5th.

    At the worst Austin is 4th. Stansback has some maturing to do. I think Austin brings more to the table than Hurd....he's faster and bigger.

    The dolphins win over the pats was no surprise to me. Just stick around and you'll see that this prediction was correct hahaha

    After playing like crap for most of the night, my boys got it done in a mano-a-mano game against the Ravens. Hardly pretty but I'll take it.
