Is there a loser version of the '72 Dolphins that cracks a bottle of champagne open every time the last winless team wins a game every season?

Yeah, I think they'll be called the 2006 Raiders.

The 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

I always use that as one of my fantasy team names every year.

here's my picks for my "straight up" pool:

SD PHI JAC MIA NE CAR PIT NYJ DEN ARI IND SEA NYG


thoughts? I don't feel too good picking Pitt over Atl. Also, the NYG over Dallas is iffy. I could really use some of Mel Kiper's wisdom, but I have yet to find a radio program that has him making picks.

I don't know. But these winless teams, they have to win sometime, and home vs. a team that just did what AZ did might be a good shot.

And yeah, that NC is a funny dude.

I think AZ will come out pissed, and James might actually get some yards. Leinart will be ready (i think he played well last game). AZ needs to get up early so OAK gives up, and then AZ needs to hold the f' on for the win...by at least 3 pts.

The Patriots and Colts really dont like each other.

http://www.nbcsports.com/nfl/206519/detail.html



The New England Patriots have formally asked the NFL to ensure the safety of Patriots employees when the team hosts the Indianapolis Colts and their explosive president at Gillette Stadium on Sunday night, Nov. 5.

The move, an evident tweaking of the Colts, comes after Colts President Bill Polian apologized to a Jets employee earlier this month for shoving him before the Colts-Jets game at Giants Stadium on Oct. 1.


According to a league source, Polian, Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum and Ray Anderson, the NFL's senior vice president of football operations, discussed the incident on a conference call soon after it occurred and Polian was required to issue a written apology.

The league wanted to the incident to "go away," the source said.

According to a FoxSports.com report earlier this month, Polian was upset because he felt loudspeakers were positioned too close to the field. In the course of speaking to a Jets employee in a tunnel leading to the field, Polian grabbed the employee by the lapels of his jacket and pushed him against a wall.

When contacted about the incident, Anderson said he had no comment and abruptly hung up.

Colts vice president of public relations Craig Kelley said: "I'm not commenting. It's been resolved, if in fact there was a problem in the first place."

Polian, who has been with the Colts for nine seasons and was a GM for the Panthers and Bills before that, did not respond to an e-mail request for comment.

Jets vice president of public relations Ron Colangelo said last week that the league office was looking into the situation.

Meanwhile, the Colts' longtime AFC nemesis in New England took notice of the Polian issue.

In the past few years, the Colts have lodged frequent complaints with the league about the Patriots. Last week, the Colts reportedly asked the league to talk to the Pats about the shoddy condition of the turf at Gillette Stadium.

During the 2003 regular season, Indianapolis complained that Patriots linebacker Willie McGinest milked a late-game injury to allow a Patriots substitution. McGinest was later involved in a stirring, game-ending fourth-down stop of Edgerrin James. During the 2003 AFC Championship, Polian went ballistic while watching the Patriots strong-arm Indianapolis receivers. A "rules emphasis" was instituted in 2004 that was dubbed the "Ty Law Rule" after the Patriots corner who picked off Peyton Manning three times that day.

In visits to New England, Polian has been demonstrative in the press box, swinging his fists, throwing off his suit coat and pounding the counter in front of him.

Last year, when Patriots backup quarterback Doug Flutie scrambled around during the last play of a 40-21 Colts win at Foxborough, Polian said, "Break his leg."

It amazes me that Denver can't beat Indy, Indy can't beat New England, and New England can't beat Denver. Boggles the mind really.

I just found out that Oakland has the #1 ranked pass defense in the NFL. That's probably because teams run all over them, but man, they are good at something apparently. And this is without Charles Woodson

Well according to Football Outsider metrics (which are complex, but are much better at evaluating a unit), they rank 28th in pass defense. So I wouldn't be seeling that too much as a high point.

Also, does anyone know what's up with the Sunday Night Game? Is there one? All I see on the schedule is a Heroes marathon, so I wonder why there's no game this week.

The Packers last year had the #1 ranked pass defense to end the season, 7th defense overall. Yet they were 23rd in rush defense. Your observation has plenty of merit.

Game 2 of the World Series.

How was that a mystery?

Michaels said last week that they were taking the week off and would be back in two weeks with the Carolina game.

Yeah, but the World Series is on Fox and football is on NBC. I don't recall ESPN ever skipping a week hen they had the Sunday Night game (though it's not exactly fresh in my memory). Besides, I'd actually think football would get higher ratings than the World Series.

ESPN did not air a SNF game opposite WS Game 1 in previous years.

I didnt see the interview, but it appears that Michael Vick was acting like a crybaby on HBO. Did anyone see it?

Right. It's more of a courtesy to MLB and to FOX.

Jets are off to a good start (14-0 about 11 minutes in to the game).
