From the Bucs major defeat in the deep south to the Bears last minute defeat against the cheese-heads, Week 1 in the NFL was the ride of your life for many football fans. Whether it was an injury that would set your franchise out of contention to a broken chance at continuing opening month dominance, it was all you paid for America.

Though the Bears lost Urlacher, and the Eagles rolled on opening night, I'm sorry for the fan who was wearing the #54 or #5 jerseys' in the stands who watched their season or opening month dominance go down the tubes. Yet, you have to wonder who came out the MORAL winners in the first set of games.

I believe the Bills & The Raiders both came out of Week One with the highest sense of security in their close losses. Though painful, I think the two losses showed that you can play well the entire season and still lose close games without passion to finish STRONG and secure the FOOTBALL and the win.

The first string TE Anthony Gonzalez (Pictured Above) for the Falcons showed dominance in the passing game of the Falcons averaging 14.5 Yards Per Catch when he caught 5 balls and scored 1 TD. The 12 point victory for Atlanta was the highest moral victory of Week One in my opinion, showing they could not only beat a high potent offense & rough and tough defense such as Miami but could THROTTLE them too. I'd be careful when preparing for the Falcons if I were the league's premium set of teams, they will be a tough game for your team, no matter who you are.

Through it all, it is truly YOUR feedback that matters so what's up America? What did you all think about this First week?
