    Steve Young also made Mike Greenberg look silly before the game. SY refused to answer the question "which QB would you rather have Manning or Brady?"

    SY said (pretty much) it was a ridiculous question. When pressed, SY said he would take Brady due to alphabetical order.

    You could hear at one point how uncomfortable he was, he couldn't even get his pre-programmed lines out at one point

    I was going to say 98 Vikings but I looked it up they only beat one team with a winning record on the first 7 they were 241-116, NE is 279 to 120 right now in points scored vs allowed.

    99 Rams only started 6-0 so NE does look pretty good.

    I will say this, my recollection of that Vikings team was they didn't run the score up the way NE is. Belichick is quite clearly pissed about the video taping scandal and it trying to make a statement by running teh score up.

    But if you can't stop them you can't complain.

    Guess Who Steve Young Played For Back in the Day?

    The Cardinals.

    The Greenwich, CT Cardinals high school football team.

    If two stories could mate (like a Harrison Bergeron and 1984 for example) I think it'd feel a lot like that.

    I'm not sure where it came from, but I like it.

    As a friend pointed out, the success of the Boston Teams would in large part be helped by failed Minnesota stars (when pressed to come up with the Baseball player on the Sox worth note he couldn't, but I still thought it was cute).

    Perfect use of a scene from 1984. Awesome work!

    There's an article in my local paper today about shootings that took place in the parking lot of the Raiders last game. The author argues this is actually great timing because he says the next home game is the same time as the Pats/Colts game.

    So we get 2 weeks to scare people about going to a Raider game, the game won't sellout, and then we'll get to see the Pats and Colts in the Bay area instead of the Raiders.

    I have to admit it was a funny comment.

    The only thing that could slow Patriots down might be Matt Cassel.

    Speaking of backup QBs, WTH is Quinn Gray. He was horrible... and their 3rd string QB is Matt Jones. Jaguars must hope Garrard is a fast healer.

    If our offense wasn't so banged up, I would have loved to see the Cards play them this year. It would probably be the only football game to ever go over 100 points.:D
