Green Bay and Detroit both sitting at 4-0, that's going to be a tight battle in the NFC North this season.

It's been a surprising year so far.

I don't mind the G-Men, I don't understand why people hate Eli Manning so much.

I don't mind the individual players (unless they are a TFD like Favre) but being from the Philly area, I detest just about any team that comes out of New York.

I can understand that. I totally hate the Yankees but the Knicks (along with the Trailblazers) is my fave NBA team. I'd wouldn't mind seeing the Jets win it all...

The owner of the Oakland Raiders apparently died today. No cause of death have been released yet.

Update:

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/O...is-dies-100811

Quote:
The NFL has lost one of its most influential and colorful figures.

Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis has died at the age of 82. The news was announced Saturday morning on the team’s web site. No other details were immediately available.

Davis’ career in football dates back to 1950. He served as a coach, general manager and even commissioner (in the American Football League that merged with the NFL in 1970) before becoming the Raiders’ principal owner in 1972.

Under his ownership tenure, Oakland won three Super Bowl titles. Davis also holds the record for most Hall of Fame induction speeches given with nine for players and coaches who worked under him, including John Madden and the late Gene Upshaw.

Davis helped revolutionized offense in the early 1960s by implementing an aggressive passing he referred to as the “vertical game.” Davis’ other fabled mantra was “Just win, baby!” The Raiders did that for most of Davis’ tenure, posting 34 seasons of .500 or better in his 48 years with the franchise.

With his silver-and-black athletic suits, dark sunglasses and slicked-back hair, Davis didn’t usually dress like other NFL team owners. He was known as a maverick when moving his franchise from Oakland to Los Angeles and back. Davis wasn’t afraid to fight for what he believed in and famously butted heads with former NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle about the league’s direction.

Davis built a franchise with a hardcore fan following that remains strong today despite an eight-year streak without a playoff appearance. He also remained closely involved with the franchise despite failing health. Raiders defensive end Jarvis Moss sent a Twitter message Tuesday night about a conversation he had with Davis that day.

“Just got a humbling phone call from Mr. Davis himself!” Moss wrote. “So much respect for what he represents to the game of football.”

Moss isn’t the only one who feels that way as will be evidenced by the forthcoming myriad of tributes in the wake of Davis’ passing.



I know he was old but this is still a surprise to me.

Well, he definitely left a legacy behind. Al was as tough as they came and his team reflected his attitude.

One hell of a legacy.

As far as the NBA goes, I just recently started watching Basketball again, it really fell off after about 1998.

I agree, I wish the NBA had great Centers and post-up play like they used to.

I really think the problem came in with the money, it was almost as if all anyone cared about was endorsements after awhile. The games weren't even exciting anymore. The Heat better bring it this season though.

So glad the Bills whooped the Eagles. I'm kinda split on Mondays Bears vs. Lions, I love the Bears but at the same time want to see the Lions keep up the streak, damn.

I think the Lions will win this game, just a hunch. Unfortunately I have to work tonight so I won't get a chance to catch the game, guess I'll watch the highlights online later when I get home.
