I should know to believe in the Texans, but their great playing is still new to me.

@George,
This is getting ridiculous.
Are they waiting for a full-goose gang fight?

@realjohnboy,
How badly did we as a group do in week 3? I don't know yet but I see a whole lot of red on my scorecard.
McGentrix is 9-6 ahead of tonight's game and has Green Bay. Five players are 8-7 but only Wandeljw is choosing Seattle.

@realjohnboy,
I have a resoundingly disappointing six.

Well, look, there's plenty of room left for improvement on my part.

Maybe this will be my worst year yet. I know I did ok one year, something like fourth (me and a lot of other people). I know I once got three (three!) right and I consider that an unacceptable nadir. Six looks better in contrast to the three.

Congrats to Mrs. Cow Doc re her choice of Tennessee.

@edgarblythe,
Shaub beat Griffin on fantasy points. Cool, man.
Oh, and then there was the ear thing.

Anyone have opinions on the referee situation? Me, I hope it gets over fast fast fast.

@ossobuco,
Sad to say but the MLB referees and owners are further apart as of yesterday/last night's meeting.

My opinion, as meaningless as it is, the owners are showing jut the same profits regardless, so they are unmotivated to make a compromise or settlement.

From a fan's viewpoint, while the product on the field arguably suffers qualitatively - it's not enough suffering where fans will stop watching or slow down going to games or drop the NFL premium packages or buy less memorabilia.

And the beat goes on

I realized I was 8-7 but your last comment surprised me! If Seattle wins, I will be tied with McGentrix. Normally, 8-7 players don't have any chances to win the week.

@wandeljw,
So far this season, the trend is for the upset and higher percentage of home teams winning.

@Ragman,
Well, Seattle is the home team. Let's hope the replacement referees at that game allow themselves to be influenced by the home crowd. I am only joking, apparently this is a real problem.

@wandeljw,
Yeah, the theory is that these refs are responding to the fans shrieks and coaches trying to intimidate them. Can you imagine the pressure? Watching the Pats-Ravens game...I was horrified throughout the game with the poor calls, particularly at the end (FG decision).

apparently if the ball flies over the upright, it's not reviewable because the goal posts extend up an infinite distance into space... Rolling Eyes

easy solution -- make the field-goal target a square.

@Region Philbis,
I can't believe that this particular FG problem didn't rear it's ugly head before that game. Or did it?

@Ragman,
It gets more like Circus Maximus though (not that I'm well read on that). Lots of flaunting of no nos, lots of balancing penalties. People are going to be hurt, which I suppose is good theater. What's with the clown who helmetted Schaub?
