The backup QB for Patriots actually got NE a WIN!!! That says A LOT about their team have SO MANY talents, it's VERY VERY respectable!!!

He might be actually really GOOD! I wouldn't count them out just cuz Brady is out, yet. Let's see if he wins again next several weeks.

Hell, that's a LOT more impressive than the Dolphins performance! I fear Dolphins will be really bad again this season! We have a DAMN Curse!!! :|

That's why they are bringing up Chris Sims then huh? Their back up QB right now is a pile of trash.

Yes, he lead them to victory, but I wouldn't say that that is "VERY VERY" respectable. With Brady out, confidence definitely takes a hit for the Pats and it gives opponents a moral boost of sorts because one of the leagues best QBs will not be playing when they face them. I'm not the only one who thinks this:

I don't care if the Pats won their opener against Kansas City with Matt Cassel playing quarterback most of the way. Without Brady, the Patriots no longer are the Patriots. They don't dominate. They don't intimidate. They don't score at will or do the things that demand comparisons to the greatest teams in league history.

The first glimpse of life without Brady came when New England barely was able to beat the much weaker Chiefs at home. Cassel is, at best, a solid offensive manager. But it wasn't a solid offensive manager that led the Patriots to an 18-1 record or won NFL and Super Bowl MVP honors.

The Pats are bringing in Chris Simms, which doesn't say a lot about Cassel, Brady's backup for the last three seasons.

So yeah, I'd be worried if I were a Pats fan.

That was a big surprise to see the Dolphins own the Patriots. I was also surprised that the Saints almost won yesterday. I was annoyed by the play calling because less than a yard outside the endzone, and they just kept trying to plow through the center. After three attempts, you'd figure they would go with a fake run, but no, they tried to go through the middle again and fail. At least it lead to a safety.

My first real NFL season I'll be following :D

The fact that I'm Dutch doesn't really help - I actually have to watch the games at 1AM or wait for the rerun next day on NASN, which is a 24/7 dedicated American Sports network here...

As far as I can say the new season has seen some pretty unexpected results already... which at least makes it more exciting for me as I'm still trying to figure out who I really like and who I don't - also, I basically just know the Giants, Pats, Colts, Cowboys and Packers (the latter I have been supporting for a while...) so lots for me to learn/watch :p

Panthers are looking mighty good, but they'll have to go through the Saints, although they haven't exactly been doing great in the long haul, allowing themselves to be overtaken (or nearly overtaken) when they have the lead.

Phew, Steelers hung on for another win. That was quite the battle tonight with the Jags.

Ben was the man tonight. So nimble for a big guy. He can throw even when his feet aren't planted on the ground. And props to the defense, as always.
