Not to mention the pats d has done a 180 since last year. Balance offense. I am extremely giddy about this season.

I made it home just in time to see the Lion's rally for the win. It's really encouraging to see Stafford rally the team for a two-minute drill march down the field. Great stuff. I'm hoping to catch a handful of games on Sky in the UK, as I know the box scores won't cut it. Maybe a little P2P action is in order, eh?

Just saw Stafford threw three picks and the Lions still managed to win. Was the defense just solid or what? I need some sports analysis on this.

Stafford looked horrible out there but they were playing one of the worst teams in the league so they snuck out of the stadium with a W :)

Been telling everyone that Ridley is the truth, LSU alumni.

Defense was solid. Suh and Fairly were beasts.
Held Steven Jackson to very little.

For the Rams.. Janoris Jenkins looks like he's going to be a great corner in this league.

Two of Stafford's picks came inside the 5 with goal to go in the first half..
But, when we needed it most....
Stafford pulled an Elway....
.....and led us to his 7th 4th qtr comeback,,,

because....... it takes 11 people to guard the Stafford-to-Calvin connection..
it leaves everybody else wide-open...

The Ravens looked really good tonight. Both of their tight ends were great, and Flacco was in the groove. O-line made room for Rice, and Lewis and Reed shut fools down. For Cincy, Dalton looked weak and rattled. I thought Green-Ellis was doing well, but the rest of the team were steamed.

Dear Emmett C. Burns Jr.,

I find it inconceivable that you are an elected official of Maryland's state government. Your vitriolic hatred and bigotry make me ashamed and disgusted to think that you are in any way responsible for shaping policy at any level. The views you espouse neglect to consider several fundamental key points, which I will outline in great detail (you may want to hire an intern to help you with the longer words):

1. As I suspect you have not read the Constitution, I would like to remind you that the very first, the VERY FIRST Amendment in this founding document deals with the freedom of speech, particularly the abridgment of said freedom. By using your position as an elected official (when referring to your constituents so as to implicitly threaten the Ravens organization) to state that the Ravens should "inhibit such expressions from your employees," more specifically Brendon Ayanbadejo, not only are you clearly violating the First Amendment, you also come across as a narcissistic fromunda stain. What on earth would possess you to be so mind-boggingly stupid? It baffles me that a man such as yourself, a man who relies on that same First Amendment to pursue your own religious studies without fear of persecution from the state, could somehow justify stifling another person's right to speech. To call that hypocritical would be to do a disservice to the word. Mindfucking obscenely hypocritical starts to approach it a little bit.

2. "Many of your fans are opposed to such a view and feel it has no place in a sport that is strictly for pride, entertainment, and excitement." Holy fucking shitballs. Did you seriously just say that, as someone who's "deeply involved in government task forces on the legacy of slavery in Maryland"? Have you not heard of Kenny Washington? Jackie Robinson? As recently as 1962 the NFL still had segregation, which was only done away with by brave athletes and coaches daring to speak their mind and do the right thing, and you're going to say that political views have "no place in a sport"? I can't even begin to fathom the cognitive dissonance that must be coursing through your rapidly addled mind right now; the mental gymnastics your brain has to tortuously contort itself through to make such a preposterous statement are surely worthy of an Olympic gold medal (the Russian judge gives you a 10 for "beautiful oppressionism").

3. This is more a personal quibble of mine, but why do you hate freedom? Why do you hate the fact that other people want a chance to live their lives and be happy, even though they may believe in something different than you, or act different than you? How does gay marriage, in any way shape or form, affect your life? If gay marriage becomes legal, are you worried that all of a sudden you'll start thinking about penis? "Oh shit. Gay marriage just passed. Gotta get me some of that hot dong action!" Will all of your friends suddenly turn gay and refuse to come to your Sunday Ticket grill-outs? (Unlikely, since gay people enjoy watching football too.)

I can assure you that gay people getting married will have zero effect on your life. They won't come into your house and steal your children. They won't magically turn you into a lustful cockmonster. They won't even overthrow the government in an orgy of hedonistic debauchery because all of a sudden they have the same legal rights as the other 90 percent of our populationórights like Social Security benefits, child care tax credits, Family and Medical Leave to take care of loved ones, and COBRA healthcare for spouses and children. You know what having these rights will make gays? Full-fledged American citizens just like everyone else, with the freedom to pursue happiness and all that entails. Do the civil-rights struggles of the past 200 years mean absolutely nothing to you?

In closing, I would like to say that I hope this letter, in some small way, causes you to reflect upon the magnitude of the colossal foot in mouth clusterfuck you so brazenly unleashed on a man whose only crime was speaking out for something he believed in. Best of luck in the next election; I'm fairly certain you might need it.

Sincerely,
Chris Kluwe

P.S. I've also been vocal as hell about the issue of gay marriage so you can take your "I know of no other NFL player who has done what Mr. Ayanbadejo is doing" and shove it in your close-minded, totally lacking in empathy piehole and choke on it. Asshole.

Not alot. But when you are on a team when green-ellis never fumbled, even a couple makes it look like you fumbled a ton. He did fumble in the denver playoff game last year. He did not see the field for the rest of the playoffs after that.

Yeah, the fumbles last year I blame on him being a rookie, he fumbled 3 times his entire LSU career.

My spot start of James Jones in last night's game coupled with Matt Forte's injury quickly reminded me why I hate fantasy football.

I grabbed Cobb off waivers, but luckily left him on the bench. That game was FF kryptonite. The only players worth a shit were the Packers D and Mason Crosby.
