    Plus, Joe Montana wasn't creating a public spectacle during his final years.

    He was let go from the 49ers due to a couple of injuries late in his career that led to them discovering how good Steve Young could be. Montana wasn't done yet, so he went to Kansas City and did well until his age finally caught up to him... and then he retired and didn't look back.

    Favre retired, then changed his mind, but his team had moved on... and then things got nasty with public declarations by both him and the Packers... then he retired again to get away from the Jets... then he retired again after 1 season with the Vikings... and now he is back yet again, to probably retire again and then???

    As far as people playing too long goes... Montana was one of the more graceful of staying-too-long scenarios.

    For years, it looked like the Saints couldn't shake being lovable losers... even in a good year suddenly "remembering" they were supposed to lose, and finding ways to do so...

    Now it looks like they can't handle success... and are finding new ways to lose all over again!

    Overall mostly true...but there were actually some pretty hot press conferences, media reports, and interviews even before the whole Montana going to the Chiefs thing rolled out...they died down much quicker is likely the difference. Favre is someone I have enjoyed for a long time (until he changed his name to Benedict Arnold anyway :D)...but the last 2-3 years with that fellow seems like a made-for-tv mini drama.
    No loyalty to the Saints here, but I certainly was among the millions who were pleased to see them finally succeed to the top in their game.

    Including the fact that Drew is a former Purdue QB doesn't help his standing in my eyes. :lol:

    I smell what you're cooking. :D

    Actually, I forsaw Mr. Brees becoming a future star while still at Purdue, even before his West Coast abuse and "learning period". :lol:

    That was me... also in high school I had a friend who was from the area and he was always a Saints fans even when he knew they were probably going to have a horrible year.

    My Panthers have gone back to crap-mode again... so my loyalties get divided as the season develops.

    I'm not one to just hitch my ride to a team that is doing well... but last year I did hitch to the Saints a bit because it was good to see them doing well and have them realistically looking like they could (and ultimately did) finish it off.

    This year, I'm not sure who to root for. Most of the NFC just doesn't look very good... but by rule there will be NFC teams in the playoffs! :)

    There are several strong looking teams in the AFC... but I don't yet have anyone I'm really wanting to see win yet. I'm not rooting against anyone either... but no one has grabbed me yet and got me tempted to get on the bandwagon.

    At this point, predicting the Super Bowl finalists would be a pretty tough forecast.

    Thinks after yesterday's loss Coach Chan Gailey would make a nice candidate for the new Cymbalta commercial.

    Just saw the official piece from the NFL explaining the ending of the Dolphins/Steelers game.

    Yes - the Dolphins were robbed...and the error was admitted. But their loss will apparently not be overturned.

    I really could care less about either team, but honestly, through using NFL Sunday Ticket again this year...and watching alot of games...this seems to be a particularly bad year for NFL officiating.

    It really hurts a team and thier fans when the outcome of games are directly affected - and more than one game has fallen into that category so far this season. Officials are human and make mistakes...but they seem to have come in droves, and of a higher nature of error this year. A shame.
