This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

wow. Just. Wow.

So what's the backup plan? I'm not familiar with the second team of the Chargers; I assume management had a plan in place?

Sorry to hear it, CS.

No real surprise there.  I'm glad he finally came to his senses.  Imagine if he did something worse to them.

We are actually fairly deep at Linebacker, but you really don't replace Shawn Merriman. We already extended Jyles Tucker which appears to be who will replace Shawn when he leaves as a FA in '09.

He stands to lose about 2 million by not playing, which was probably his reason for trying to gut it out.

What I still don't get is that he had knee surgery in the off-season and they decided not to repair the whole knee while they were in there.

=James J Skach;246261]I suspect, and don't take this the wrong way, that Bills had a game like the Bears. That is, they both played well against teams for which there are higher expectations but are facing injury plagued lineups.


Didn't take the wrong way, I was just curious as to what others were thinking.  Like my Viking, I seem to get my hopes up about the Bills, only to have them crushed later.  I do wish them the best, but I know it will probably take a few years to tame that wild team.  I will always cheer them on.

So while both looked rather strong in the opener, I'm waiting for a little more evidence.

I was rather disappointed in the interception in the fourth quarter. I was hoping the Vikes would score early enough so that Rodgers could try to lead a two minute drill and we could hear all about the comparisons to Favre - extra points if he fails, so I can hear the Packers fan lament the decision. But that's just my anti-Packers bias showing...


Tell me about it.  Disappointment all around. One of the main reasons my husband doesn't allow me to watch football is because I lose all of my polite behavior, and everyone turns into a mother f-ker.  Besides the Packers are his boys.  I have the anti-Packer emotion running through me constantly.

I suspect Farve's gunslinging arm will get him into trouble soon.

It's tough to be to high on the Jets, they barely won agaist Miami. Stats wise you can argue Chad outplayed Farve.


Whew... glad the game turned out that!
