It just dawned on me, that Denver is 4 and 0 without Manning. Wouldn't that be great if they had a perfect season (or even a near perfect season) the first year without Manning. I suspect Kubiak will screw it up for them before too long.

My thoughts last year were that Carolina was pretty good against the lower tier teams. They don't seem to be doing as good against the upper tier teams this year.

Give Manning a break. His Peyton on Sunday Morning commercials are the best on TV. I chuckle each time I see one.

ATL vs. DEN should be a good game. NE vs. CLE not so much. And I'm hoping the Bills beat the Rams.

I always liked Manning (Peyton that is). I think he was one of the greatest QB's of all time. Glad he was able to go out the way he did.

And the commercial with him sitting on a park bench and the older guy telling him to work as long as he can is priceless.

Well mixed results for my team picks this week. Houston lost (as expected) and so did Denver, but Dallas won . New Orleans had a bye week so I didn't lose anything on that one. I didn't get to see the New England game but it sounded like Brady had a good game.

Also noticed that there is only one undefeated team left standing. I wonder how long the Vikings can hold on to that position? Also, I feel a little bad for the Browns, still no wins yet.

I wonder if they will even win one with all of their QBs hurt. Yesterday they were down to their wide receiver Pryor playing QB.

Maybe for only a while but, gotta enjoy it while I can.

It does feel good, especially with the Ranger bombing out. WFAA conducted a text poll during their nightly news tonight asking who the fans wanted as QB, Prescott or Romo, 96% said Prescott.

Yeah, I really do think Romo should retire while he can still walk. Not so much because he's washed up or finished, but for the sake of his own health. Given Romo's history I cringe every time he takes a big hit, especially from the back side, wondering if he'll be able to get up. It's only been a few games but it might be time to declare the Prescott era underway in Big D.

Not surprised. I'm a Romo fan & I would vote Prescott if asked.

Mr Jones will insist Romo returns when the docs say he's healthy. No matter. He'll probably be injured quickly and then Prescott will become the Team's QB. Romo is a likeable guy, but injury prone, plus he's failed to get into the super bowl. The future is Prescott, and I'd say that even if he has a couple of bad games.

So, the Rams lost and went up in the rankings. Maybe by the end of the season I'll figure this guy out.

Watched "Peyton Manning's Summer School" last night (NFL Network Timeline Series); quite good.

Spoiler alert: His secret is Hard Work.

ATL vs. SEA was decided by the slimmest of margins--with the missed extra point, questionable non-penalty PI call, etc.--late in the 4th quarter. Fun game to watch.

Cowboys 5-1.

Now, we'll have to wait two weeks to see what happens.

+1 - It's going to be really interesting to see what Jerry does when Romo is ready to come back if Dak can keep winning. As long as Dak keeps winning, I wouldn't be surprised to hear Jerry say that Romo needs a little more rest and waits for a Dak loss. I've never had much respect for Jerry but hopefully he's doesn't do something stupid here.

Wow, what a come back for Houston last night. With less than 3 mins to go in the 4th quarter, it was Houston 9 and the Colts 23. Houston won in OT 26 to 23.
