    I’m actually very intrigued by this NFL Network match up tonight. Certainly looking foward to watching. For the following reasons...

    Rams win takes them out of the 3 Win Team club, thus leaving only the Jets and Falcons as the two teams ahead of the 49ers for the #2 spot. Rams win is huge for our draft pick.

    As for the Steelers, with a loss they are on the verge of...

    A) Not winning the divison
    If they are to lose this game, and Cleveland is to finish 2-0 (I’d say more then likely) Cleveland will be the 2007 AFC North Division Champions. Imagine that? After the Week 1 spanking the Steelers put on the then seemingly abysmal Browns, who would have told you they'd win the division, great stuff.

    B) Not making the playoffs.
    This would take two lossses, paired with the Titans winning their final two games. Then it would come down to tie-breakers. Yeah, this probably isn’t happening, but just something to keep an eye on I suppose.

    If they lose this game tonight, I’d be very confident that the Browns will take the division. Go Rams. You’re playing for our draft pick and Steelers embarrassment tonight.

    I really want the Rams to UPSET the Steelers. I'd LOVE it because it would be one more step back for them.. and one step closer to the Browns moving up.

    Heh, a team that was just a few weeks ago looking for the #2 seed could be on the verge of being in the midst of a 3 game losing streak and playing for a 6th spot.

    Bob Costas is an idiot. "The Colts should've won that game, turn around any one of a number of plays and they win." Well no kidding.... take away the Addai run and the Pats win large. Sherlock Holmes here can't just say the Pats won and they did what they needed to win.

    Peyton and the Colts haven't been the same team since then and injuries are used as an excuse. They were psychologically damaged.

    The Pats really mess a team up after they play them and the team gets off track and starts to lose.

    Big Ben 2 for 2 for 100 yards and a TD. That's how you start a game.

    Somehow I feel that if we would have drafted Santonio Holmes (even though we had no shot at him), he would have been a star by now. But Hamstrings might still do something. Might.
