What an emotional weekend. Both 2010 Super Bowl teams are out. The team once talked about as being possible a 2011 Super Bowl contender, Mike Vick and the Eagles, are out. We all predicted this, right?
It was a tumultuous weekend around the NFL. It's the reason football fans love the game and the kind of uncertainty that peaks the curiosity of the casual observer.

So much football, so little time. As always it was a busy and exciting weekend for NFL action, so let's get to it.
The second week of the 2010 football season is ending. In my eyes, it's going to be hard to top it. After last week's failings, both of my teams pulled through this week for wins. Though it wasn't pretty, the Eagles won with Michael Vick as quarterback. Even though "only" over Detroit, it is still a win. Big bro showed little bro who was boss in the Manning Bowl, and in so doing made me forget the pain that was the Colts season opener/slaughter by the Texans.
I have spent most of this day watching football. Both teams I was pulling for lost--the Colts and Eagles. One more game to go--Redskins versus Cowboys (gotta cheer for Donovan). Following 3 teams may damn well kill me this season. I don't know how I'm going to sustain this. I was emotionally drained after the Colts game and had a headache after so much screaming, then on to the Eagles at 4:15. Now the Redskins at 8. I am turning into a dude.
