Excellent week of football for me! 49ers had an awesome win against Green Bay. (Not going to take anything away from the Packers, they came back in the 4th and made it close.) Most of my predictions going into week 1 were correct, a few I got wrong.


And nothing against the 9ers, but I can't call anything about that game "awesome", given the questionable officiating. I don't mind the Packers losing, it's just a game. But those refs...Even Troy Aikman couldn't keep quiet about the level of bullshit, going on. That ruined what would've otherwise indeed been an awesome game.

Giants vs. Cowboys- I thought the G-men would start off their Superbowl defense with a win. Instead suffered a tough loss against a division Rival.


Nevermind that the Cowboys are my second favorite team, I will say that even a reigning champion is subject to off-season rust collection.

With two games left to be played Monday night, and Denver on the verge of wrapping up a win against Pittsburgh, so far all of my other pics were correct. I'm so excited! Thank God Football is Back!


Yeah, I'm not off to a great start, on my picks. sweatdrop


the bad calls went against both teams to be honest, on the Packers/Niners game.


I know that. My point isn't that either team got "cheated", or anything, but that the officiating was horrible, and kinda ruined the game.

I do know I've lost what little respect I had for Rodgers after welching on his bet to wear Smith's Jersey for a week if he lost. Then trying to back track and say it was a 'joke' between friends. You know damn good and well had they won, he'd have overnighted one of his jerseys to Boys to Men.
Bad start for Peyton tonight.

Edit: Really bad start...(3rd pick).

One of the most bizarre endings to a football game I've seen in a while...

Not even a Packers fan, but...WOW. That was a pick, I don't understand how they ruled it a completion.

The refs are getting progressively worse every week...please...we need the old refs back.

Between that "touchdown," and the defensive PI where the Seattle WR decided to make himself Shields's human cape, I think it's time to get rid of these replacement refs. What did they do, shave a bunch of homeless guys and dress them up in old Foot Locker uniforms? What a joke. Where do they even find these clowns?

I'm a huge Packers fan. That was total bs by the refs. If it was any other teams playin' I would feel bad for them as well.

Disgusting end to the Pack/Hawks game. The replacement refs and their incompetence have officially cost a team a win. The integrity of the game has been damaged and the NFL needs to bring back the regular refs NOW.

What did I watch between Packs/Hawks? I finally catch a Packs game and this happens. I even missed the new episode of Bones for it. This is a bunch of bollocks. The replacement refs are terrible. The clear winner of the game was right in front of them. Honestly! *rages about her team not winning when clearly they should have won*

This could make a huge impact down the road once playoffs hit. Say if the Packers would miss winnin' their devision, or miss gettin' into the playoffs. Because of the bad calls by the refs in this game.
One of the craziest and most controversial endings to a game I've seen!

If this doesn't get the regular refs back...I don't know what will.

At what point do the NFL just step in and strike the ref's call from the record?

These guys HAVE to be ******** people over intentionally. Nobody can be that balls-out stupid, on a professional payroll...

You know what? I don't even care that it was the Packers that got ******** over. As big a die-hard Packers fan as I may be, I'd be just as outraged if the pendulum swung the other way, here.
