    In case you had any doubt.

    It is a new season, new team, and Ndamukong Suh is still finding himself involved in another "dirty player" controversy.

    Just sayin'

    Suh is a dirty player, plain and simple. I never liked the guy and for him to not think what he does on field is all within the rules and good sportsmanship, that's a load of crap.

    That being said, Eagles don't play til tomorrow and I'll be at work :(

    Eh, I think Suh gets a lot of grief due to his aggression. Has he made a mistake or two? Yes. Do I think he's a dirty player? No. I really don't think this was intentional. I see a lot of stuff like this but not get the attention like Suh does. I've seen a linebacker body slam a quarterback and people just praised him for being a beast.

    Great comeback by the Cowboys. I actually turned it off towards the end since I thought the Giants had it and to my surprise when I put on SportsCenter. :eek:

    Jennings had 2 chances to score and they didn't. Word is now that he was told not to score. Absolutely terrible call by whoever told him that. Why wouldn't you take a 10pt lead with under 2min to go?

    Nice victory for the 9ers but definitely have a lot of cleaning up to do, especially in the secondary. Russell Wilson is not Teddy Bridgewater, he will do a better job running and making plays down field. Seattle's passing game is way too good for us to be getting lost in coverage.

    We got away with one with our poor special teams play and mental errors (drive killing penalties) early as well.

    Good win overall, especially for Week 1 with all the mishaps. And loving how they are running the ball. I felt like that was the key element that was missing last year. Take the ball out of the hands of Kap. and get backs involved where we are controlling the clock and setting the tone. Not ready to crown the niners as there is much that needs improving. But I have to say Jim Tomsula have me wondering....

    Kap will not last long trying to be a linebacker. The thing I was most impressed with this weekend was Taylor and the Bills. He looked like Russell Wilson in his second season .

    Actually KAP did much better learning to be a pocket passer. I was impressed, yeah he needs to learn to slide feet first and get out of bounce but he is not as quick to run as before. He is still not as polished as I would like (ie Russell Wilson) but much better.

    The Vikings D was not scary so we will have to see how he handle teams like the Rams, Seahawks, and packers. Those teams (especially the hawks and packers) have a D and Qbs on the other side that will make us pay for poor coverage and special teams errors. Had we played those other teams I feel it would have easily been at least 10-0 by the second quarter with those mistakes we made.

    The joys of football season. For about as soon as you start celebrating you find yourself pouting, and vice verse where people thinking the season is over are now cheering. It was why I kept telling people at work, it is only Week 1. Teams that look like playoff teams in week 1 could end up drafting #1 by week 16 and teams looking bad week 1 find themselves in the playoffs.

    By week 4 or 5 you will have an idea who the contenders are.
