Obviously the big story coming out of week one is Tom Brady’s torn ACL. With him out of the picture the AFC East (entire league?) seems up in the air. You hate to see a great player lose an entire year like that, and you never want t see anyone get hurt. But then again, it’s pretty tough to feel sorry for Tom Brady.
The Dolphins ripped my heart out (yet again) with their last minute attempt to look competitive against Brett Favre and the Jets. They had a handful of opportunities to punch it in throughout the game and come out of it with a victory. But in typical Dolphins fashion they dangled the victory carrot in front of my nose to the bitter end. What’s the definition of insanity again?
The Bills looked really good against the banged up Seahawks, and with Brady out folks around here have new reason for optimism about their playoff chances this season. Three TDs for Willie Parker. The Colts lay an egg at home against the Bears. We get our first look at the post-Favre era in Green Bay tonight. It looks like Donovan McNabb is feeling better these days.
So yeah, week one is almost completely in the books. Did you watch any games? How’d your team look?
