While my first article was very messy, I (of course) plan to improve with every article. I'm going to give you my observations of the week 1 Monday Night Football games, as well as after-thoughts of the previous games. The parentheses indicate who I thought would win for each game before the game started.


  • My friend jokingly told me that he didn't know that the Packers signed Jay Cutler today.
  • Ruvell Martin and Paris Lenon, two former Packers, sign with the St. Louis Rams. Seems like the Rams have been eyeing the Pack's exits the past few years... I may make an article about all the former Packer players that have signed with the Rams over the past few years.
  • Brian Urlacher out for the rest of the season... Ouch. As a Packer fan, though, I'm not too happy that the Bears are contacting Free Agent Derrick Brooks.
  • Dolphins form of wildcat in week 1: Fail. Seahawks form of wildcat in week 1: Success.
  • Mark Sanchez looks like a million dollars plus more so far.
  • Joe Flacco is immune to the sophomore slump.
  • Jeff Garcia is back with the Eagles, very interesting.
  • Bills look much better on both sides of the ball.
  • Tom Brady looked good for his first game back.
  • AWESOME end to the game.
  • Is Al Davis as crazy as we thought?  
  • This game showed that the Raiders could do well this season.
  • Norv Turner is definitely not getting younger.
Now my question to you all, what do you think of week one? What were your observations that I didn't make?
