    Reaction to the Bears trading up 1 spot was almost universally negative. Reaction to the pick of Trubisky was not. Most pundits/draft guides had him as the highest rated QB in his class. They did not have him as a top 7 pick, for the most part, though. As for my own views on him...He's underperformed what I had seen him turning into, but I wouldn't give up on him just yet if I were the Bears.

    The Ravens become the first team since the 1970 merger to face an 0-8 or worse team the game after facing an 8-0 or better team, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

    The Ravens, who are currently 10-point favorites, are the one NFL team that has been able to avoid the major upset. Baltimore is 33-0 all time when favored by double digits, the only active franchise without a loss in those situations.

    Definite trap game for them. Facing the Bungles after B slapping the Pats.

    I can't see it with a new quarterback and Green out. They just can't knock him out of the game.

    The drum beat is getting louder. (Be sure to watch the Orlovsky video too.)

    Just win baby! It was ugly at times, but this is a team being lead by a lot of rookies who are starting to understand the game and gel... We may be in the Wild Card discussion if we can keep it going.Jacobs is the real deal!

    Jacobs is a beast! The Raiders have a very good chance to be 7-4 heading to KC.

    They need to make sure to not overlook their next 2 opponents. Keep the mojo going!

    Probably no one will want to admit it, but Chucky has to get some of the credit. This doesn't happen if Freddie kitchens is the Head Coach.

    I agree. He broke some eggs now he's trying to make an omelette. Bringing Mayock on board was a great move. They may have picked Ferrell sooner than they needed (though he had his breakout game last night), but this draft class is looking solid. Crosby was a 4th round pick, for example. The Mack trade will pay dividends because they are using those picks well, so far. Still a long way to go but you can feel the culture change starting to happen.

    will the fans in Oakland still root for them in LV?
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    Watching Browns/Bills. I sorta get the feeling the Browns will find a way to lose.

    Are the Bengals tanking or do they just suck? Didn't they win the division 2 years ago?

    Ok, whatever.

    The Dolphins ain't screwing around. We'll probably lose but we've at least kicked the Colts in the balls...

    They suck. No offensive line, horrible defense.

    Matt Stafford injured for the Lions, along with the first and 2nd string running backs. The season is over once again.
