    In Aaron Rodgers' last 17 home games, he's thrown 41 TD's with no interceptions, he's pretty good

    Barring something very unusual, it looks like the playoff teams in the NL are set. The Mets, Cards, Dodgers, Cubs, and Pirates. No playoff races in September, pretty strange

    It doesn't make sense. They shouldn't be as good as they are, but they definitely are. And now I want Oreos.

    Despite Denver's 2-0 record, I'm not liking what I've seen from Manning so far, I think the Broncos are in a little trouble, he just doesn't look the same

    Kane, don't let the talking heads plant seeds in ur mindset. They just beat 2 upper echelon teams. Yeah, he's a year older but still elite. I'll give you Eli in a trade straight up for him for the rest of the year.

    Doesn't look like he has a lot of confidence in his OLine. As the season progresses and they improve, so will his performance. He has more than enough weapons and a solid D.

    EDIT: Kane just replied to you over there.

    Ron, I'm not listening to anyone, just what my eyes tell me. First off, I'm a big Peyton Manning fan, he's probably the smartest QB I've ever seen, and I was defending him last year, but he just doesn't look the same to me, his arm strength isn't there. There was a pass he attempted late in the game, right before he threw the TD that tied it, he had a receiver open at the goal line, but the ball fell at his legs, I'm thinking a couple years ago that's an easy throw for him. Can he still be effective? Yeah, he hasn't lost any power in his brain, but his arm doesn't look strong to me, and as we get deeper in the season, weather starts to become an issue, making his lack of arm strength even more important. The Broncos are 2-0, but could easily be 0-2, I think they're going to have to rely more on their running game, and they do have a good defense, so we'll see how the season plays out. BTW, I'm not now, nor have I ever been an Eli fan, so I wouldn't make that trade.

    If your name is Corn Elder, don't you have to play for Nebraska?

    I understand why the NCAA told their officials to start calling "targeting" penalties a couple of years ago, they want to protect a defenseless receiver from getting hit above the shoulders, I don't have a problem with that, but the punishment is way too severe imo. A player who gets called for a "targeting" penalty gets thrown out of the game, and then is forced to sit out the first half of the next game, that's way too punitive. Call the 15 yard penalty, but don't kick the player out. They could do what the NBA does with technicals, once you get a certain amount, you're suspended for a game. The NCAA could set a certain amount of "targeting" penalties called against a player before he gets suspended for a game, let's say three of them, then you sit out the next game, or even two targeting penalties, but to kick a kid out of the game, then force him to miss the first half of the next game in way over the top
