Somewhere, Rick Spielman is drooling with anticipation.

Watched a little of the Titans and jaguars game tonight. Unis looked haarable. Is this something that the NFL is forcing teams to wear for Thursday night games? Not sure how I'm going to feel watching the Vikings play in their Jammies.

I have to give credit where it is due:

Tampa looks very good lately. Jameis Winston really is coming on strong for them, and their defense is actually not playing that badly either.

Cam Newton is a beast this season. He has turned into a great QB and his team is (soon to be) 10-0 because of it. Credit to the Panthers' coaching staff for crafting an offense that suits him well. On a similar note, does Carolina play any good teams this year???

You can ask the same question about the Patriots.

Also, Brock Osweiler looks really good for Denver. I wonder if that will give Peyton more time to get "healthy"?

I think both teams have a legitimate shot at 16-0. Especially NE though. Their schedule is a joke.

some interesting things already this week. Cowgirls win over Miama. Brocko's are pretty decent without Manning, 2 huge blowouts so far....

Ian Rapoport ‏@RapSheet 21m21 minutes ago

The #Broncos are signing QB Christian Ponder, source said, who is in town today. He'll start as the No. 3, then learn the offense.

Just a few plays away from Ponder leading the Broncos!

Good for Ponder! I wish him well. I hope he can stick on that roster even after Manning is healthy.

Good for Ponder.


...but if the Broncos win the Super Bowl and Ponder and Tarvaris Jackson get rings before Adrian there is little justice in this world.

Yes. I think that's what DK meant: a Broncos SB win this year would mean both Jackson and Ponder would have SB rings (assuming Ponder would still on the team at that point).

Yea, your right, don't know what momentarily made me think Tavares was on the Broncos, it is odd cause I feel like I can picture him in the uniform and everything.
