Well, it was a good win. Some bad tackling aside from the secondary, Bolts fans will take a win to get to 4 and 3 and go into the BYE week on a positive note. Our guys should be lowering the boom, not getting the boom lowered on them. This can be a problem later in the year when facing the Broncos, the size the Bengals have at WR and the Chiefs offensive thrust. Gotta tackle better.
It blows me away how many severe injuries we see week to week. I watched Brian Cushing blow out his LCL & break his leg yesterday in KC. LOVE the way he plays. Nobody will ever be able to say he took plays off, ala Shaun Philips when he was a Charger. Doug Martin rips up his labrum in TB, GB's Jermichael Finley's in the ICU with a neck injury. Bad weekend for the NFL. Reggie Wayne tears his ACL last night in the Colts big win over Denver???
Great weekend for the Jets. I can't believe this is the same dysfunctional circus we were laughing at in the pre-season. They're 4 and 3! Are you kidding me? How great to see the suck-hole Pats go down in OT!
FROM FORBES MAGAZINE:
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is the most disliked player in the NFL, according to a survey of the public taken by E-Poll Market Research and released by Forbes.com.
More than half of those asked in the survey of 1,100 people (53 percent) said they disliked Vick, even though the signal caller hasn't taken any steps back after being released from prison in May 2009 following a 19-month sentence for his part in a dogfighting ring.
San Diego Chargers rookie linebacker Manti Te'o came in second, as 48 percent of respondents said they disliked the former Notre Dame star whose story of a deceased girlfriend turned out to be fake.
Te'o rose to the top of the list despite the fact no evidence has been presented to suggest that he was in on the hoax.
A less-surprising name, Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, came in as the third-most disliked player in the league. Suh has been fined more than $200,000 for his behavior on seven occasions in his three-plus seasons in the league.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who has had off-field issues, is fourth. He was involved in a near-fatal motorcycle accident in 2006 and also has faced two sexual assault allegations. Charges were not brought in either case, but he was suspended under the league's personal conduct policy in 2010 and settled a civil lawsuit in one of the cases in 2012.
