But so is any team that gets to start their season playing
Mike Shanahan told Brian Griese he was benched
with a 16-13 lead in the fourth quarter of the game against
the Rams. The Rams then missed a FG, Shanahan changed
his mind, and Griese drove the team down and threw a TD
St. Louis QB Kurt Warners thumb is still
bothering him. His passes are still on the mark most of
the time, but rarely have a tight spiral.
Rams head coach Mike Martz decides to not take
a short FG to tie the game against Denver late in the
contest and goes for it on 4th and 2. Thats not
gutsy, its idiotic and cost the Rams the game.
The Dolphins are unbeatable in September at home.
The Colts RB Edgerrin James is baaaaack.
The Michael Vick versus Brett Favre battle was
a blast to watch. Vick looks like the real deal.
After a slow start the fun and gun
offense in Washington rallied for a win. But it was against
a woeful Arizona Cardinals defense.
The Seahawks are awful without Trent Dilfer.
Fans in Detroit and Baltimore had better prepare
for a loooong season.
