Pats are winning it all provided Tom doesn't shit the bed like he did last playoffs.

I'm not sure what to make of the Eagles' off-season moves. Six months after Green Bay demonstrates that you can win a championship as a virtual non-participant in free agency (and with a bunch of back ups in key roles at that - Starks, Bulaga, Bishop, Zombo/Walden, Peprah, etc), Philadephia goes all in in the free agent market and stacks the team with talent. It might work out spectacularly, it might turn out to be a huge flop. I'm sceptical, since one month seems like a pretty short time in which to turn a slew of free agents into a cohesive unit.

The Dolphins are just good enough to not get Andrew Luck.

Go us.

It will slow them down some, but at least the obvious TDs won't be effected. Those weren't really any different last night.

What I really want to see is good kickers hitting the ball high in the air so that it lands inside the 5 and return teams downing the ball inside the 20.

Technically it would be a live ball. I do see a strategy of trying to pin teams back inside the 20 for sure though,

One (another?) downside to the new kickoff rule: short field goals become slightly more valuable (as opposed to going for it on fourth down), because the ensuing kickoff after a made FG is more valuable, though it may not be a huge difference and I doubt many coaches are going to care that much. I'm sure Ernie Adams is on it though.

All I've learned from today is that despite who was on defense, Matt Moore is arguably a better option as starter than Chad Henne for the Miami Dolphins.

The Eagles' moves have been almost uniformly great. It's just a damn shame they're going with Michael Vick. I can't see a Super Bowl with him at QB.

As much as it blows being stuck watching the Bears, I did miss the sight of Cutler being driven into the turf.

Jay gets a lot of practice leaving games early with a sour look on his face in the preseason. He'll know what to do when it counts.

EDIT: Their special teams are RIDICULOUS. Knox is the only spark in their starting offense tonight.

We hope to improve redzone scoring this year, so now's the time to get on board.
