Lots of missed calls in the SF vs GB game, on both team. But at least it wasn't one sided. Smith played well all game (finally!) and the Defense couldn't figure out how to stop Cobb, but thanks to an excellent pass rush on the Packer's last possession, that sealed the deal.

I was thinking they'd be 3-1 in the first 4 weeks, now, I'm thinking 4-0!

I'm not sure how I could have come into the beginning of the season with lower expectations (that isn't to suggest a dismal outlook on the season, as I retain some level of optimism, but more realistic than usual), but Vick managed to disappoint even more than anticipated.  However, my defensive expectations were met and in some cases exceeded (DeMeco Ryans' addition to MLB was a fantastic pickup in the offseason).  And Shady McCoy is just ridiculous.

I expected Vick to get injured within the first few minutes of the game, but while that didn't happen in Week 1, odds are with our spotty offensive line he'll literally be killed in Week 2 by Baltimore.  If we would have played a decent team we would have been blown out of the stadium.  Hopefully almost losing to Cleveland was a wake-up call for the Philadelphia offense.  Otherwise it's going to be yet another long season.

But, we're likely to see the beginning of the Nick Foles era in Philadelphia when Vick goes down with injury, which is an exciting development here at the University of Arizona as he is not only an alum, but the first UofA grad to get a chance to play quarterback in the NFL since the 70's.  Plus he's a huge quarterback with an accurate arm and solid pocket presence.  Unfortunately our offensive line is so inconsistent that his lack of mobility could cut his inevitable NFL debut prematurely short.

Being at UofA has motivated some interest in college football for the first time in my life, and our recent upset of Oklahoma St. is making things rather exciting.  At least I have that for now if Philadelphia football goes down the toilet.  But, it's early for the NFL season and for the PAC-12 as well.

Brooks Reed is from Arizona.  He's been starting for the Texans since Mario Williams went down last year.

I should have clarified that Nick Foles would be the first UofA grad to play quarterback and actually throw since the 70's.  Unfortunate omission.  Fixed.

Can't wait for the 49ers vs lions game.  Hope Schwartz can handle a simple handshake/pat on the back this year.

Grrr Erin's mom invited us over for dinner.  The whole family is getting together for the first time in a long time due to people always being sick.  THe point is now I have to decide, do I go, or stay home to watch a game I've been waiting for all year.  They may turn it on, but I'll have to deal with her dad and his questions/comments, which usually annoy me.

Tell her to not be dumb and schedule stuff like this on Sundays.  Watch the Niner game.

Record the game, go on football blackout until after the dinner. I have to do the same thing for the Steelers and Jets game today. I probably won't be able to watch it until 10 tonight. I'm not happy about it, but it's better than  nothing.

I thought last week's game officiating was worse than the lions game.  Overall a fun game.  Alex had some nice TD passes and played well.  He's finally getting his confidence and you know, actually playing quite well.  I hope it carries throughout the season and into the post season.  I thought last year, the defense bailed him out, and he came through towards the end of the games, and this year it's more like he's involved throughout the game.  That's all I wanted from him, and it's nice to see that he's doing that.

RIP Steve Sabol

Quote
NFL Films' President Steve Sabol died Tuesday after an 18-month battle with brain cancer. He was 69.

"Steve Sabol was the creative genius behind the remarkable work of NFL Films," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. "Steve's passion for football was matched by his incredible talent and energy. ... He was a major contributor to the success of the NFL, a man who changed the way we look at football and sports, and a great friend."
...
Under Steve Sabol, NFL Films pioneered video techniques such as super slow-motion, wireless microphones on players and dramatic music added to replay highlights.

His father was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame last year.
...
Father and son received the Lifetime Achievement Emmy from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in 2003 and, according to the NFL, Steve Sabol won more than 40 Emmys awards and oversaw 107 Emmys for NFL Films.

The family requested any donations be sent to the Jefferson Foundation for Brain Tumor Research, c/o Lindsey Walker, 925 Chestnut St., Suite 110, Philadelphia, Pa. 19107.

Eagles/Cards in Arizona.  Limo bus packed with booze and food is picking us up at 8am to head to Glendale.  Tailgating for 4 hours (only because Arizona has stupid tailgating rules - in Philly we would have started the night before), then it's on. 

The hard part will be getting back to Tucson for an 8am Metabolic Basis of Pharmacotherapy exam Monday morning.  Looks like Friday and Saturday will be dedicated to the books and Sunday will be dedicated to the birds.

Robert Griffin III is amazing.

The Redskins as a whole, however, are an undisciplined mess.  And I still don't know who got the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty towards the end of the game because the supremely unconfident ref didn't announce it!

I know and that's why this ref thing will continue.  Goodell talks about the integrity of the game all the time...came down hard on the Saints.  Yet, he is willing to let three weeks of this go by.  If people would take a stand and just boycott one weekend, I bet you he'd cave.

Well I think Gooddell is right for going after the Saints.  But everything else is pretty bad.  The refs won, the NFL doesn't know it yet.  The ref's union has the public on their side, and each week this continues it just mounts up.

As I read somewhere else:

The (stupid) ref signaling a touchdown forgot which team was on offense (as I've seen them just go "Red Team" instead of calling a team by name) and flagged Green Bay for a touchdown.

What we need to do is simply stop watching football until the strike is over. Of course, that'll never happen as already said. That said, I don't watch football (or any other sport) so it doesn't matter for me (just stumbled upon this mess of a call via my news feeds).

I don't catch many NFL games because I'm primarily focused on the CFL.  I only watched the game because the Packers and Hawks are the closest thing I have to 2 favorite NFL teams. Good God was the officiating in that game ever a travesty - the NFL seriously needs to resolve that lockout! Watching that game made me that much more grateful for our CFL officials.
