    I like his shirt, "Vermeil whines." But I think "Vermeil cries" would be more accurate. :ww:

    I am too evil to cry. If I had a heart of gold, I'd cut it out and sell it.

    Of course he's never cried, his team would need to win for that to happen.

    Going to be very interesting seeing your FinFinFinnegan going up against the hot-head Brandon Marshall, and your boys giving that moody Cutler some extra-curriculars.

    I'm predicting at least 3 fights that will have to be broken up.

    RAMS @ BEARS REVIEW


    This game was kind of strange for me in that I slept through the first half (my dad and I watched my game first, and it took an emotional toll on me), and then I woke up for the second half and my dad pretty much slept through the game after the pick six. I did catch the first half later on the DirecTV Short Cuts.


    So the Bears put up 13 points of offense. But as I sat there watching the game I was very unimpressed with the Bears offense because it seemed like every score came on a drive that was extended by a Rams penalty... and not just a Rams penalty, but usually one of the inexcusable types. I guess being unimpressed with the Bears offense is equivalent to being impressed with the Rams defense. Take it how you want.

    I thought your rookie punter did a tremendous job angling the punts to where they basically didn't cross the out-of-bounds until actually landing on the earth.

    And of course the Sam Bradford enigma continues. I saw this play where Sam gets sacked, and I'm like, "Wow he was just a statue in the pocket. That was totally on Sam." Then I look at the replay, it's a four-man rush. I'm starting to wonder if the issue is that the Rams' o-line simply cannot travel well, it's like when they get on a plane and mess with their schedule they can't put it together on the field.

    But Sam did do a good job getting a score in before the half. Good teams score at the end of the half.

    It's only three games so far. I'm looking forward to getting some more games in.



    By the way fellas I stand by my NFC West prediction.

    1. ARI
    2. SF
    3. STL
    4. SEA


    We all saw that MNF game. "Inaccurate pass" drama aside, that Seahawks offense simply cannot move the ball. Gaining yards through the air for the Seahwaks was brutal in that game, and it's not like GB has a stellar secondary. Their defense played well but I think a lot of it has to do with Rodgers being off at this point in the season. Rodgers has looked bad in all 3 games. In 3 games GB's offense has done the following: 2 offensive TDs vs SF with one being in garbage time, 1 offensive TD vs CHI on a quick strike from the 20-yard line immediately after one of four INTs, and 1 offensive TD on MNF.

    Call me crazy but Rodgers misses Scott Wells. Too bad he can't stay on the field for the Rams.

    He might be missing Philbin more.

    Philbin's son died, probably affecting his ability to do his job, and Rodgers & co were off against the Giants in the playoffs. Then Philbin heads away to Miami and Rodgers still hasn't gotten his mojo back.

    SEA@STL REVIEW

    The main thing I've pulled from this game is... and I know it's probably too early but... so far Zuerlein is the best kicker I've ever seen. And I've been watching Jason Hanson my whole life.


    Bradford's pass to Kendricks on the 3rd and 13 I thought was very clutch. Also showed lots of touch on that deep sideline pass on the right side to Gibson(?)



    Your Rams won without having scored an offensive TD while allowing an offensive TD, and my Lions lost while scoring an offensive TD and not allowing an offensive TD.


    Speaking of which, WTF was with General Bentnose AKA Prantsy Pete trying to argue that Amendola had to be inside the numbers on the fake FG? WTF does that even mean? Is that some college crap? Does he not know the numbers are purely cosmetic? Lol. Cosmetic is probably not the word I should use, as they do have a purpose, but there's nothing official about them. The only official lines on the field are out-of-bounds, hashes, and the goal lines. Everything else is to support the act of spotting the ball.





    And through the month of September my prediction for the NFC West standings is 100% correct! :cheese:
