Thought #1 – If there is one thing you didn’t want to be this weekend it was a quarterback in the state of Florida. Tampa’s Brian Leftwich was officially benched today meanwhile Miami’s Chad Pennington is most likely out for the season after wrecking his shoulder yesterday, although he will have a second opinion with the well known sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews. Kind of makes me wonder who he went to for the first opinion, some random intern at a Miami ER? I’m picturing Chad sitting in that waiting room, you know the one where ever chair has some sort of awkward stain on it, he’s sitting there staring at that token fish tank, trying to fight the urge to flip through Southern Living, just because it’s the only magazine that doesn’t look like a dog has chewed it up. At the same time he’s trying to avoid making eye contact with the extremely large lady and her extremely skinny husband whose hand is wrapped up thanks to an accident involving some combination of a weed eater, christmas lights, and beer. Yeah, a second opinion is a good call Chad.

On the college side, Tim Tebow got absolutely rocked in the 3rd quarter of the Kentucky game, leaving him able only to recite half of the book of Leviticus. Meanwhile the U’s Jecory Harris probably wishes he could use that excuse after only completing 9 passes and being sacked 3 times this weekend by the Hokies. Just a bad week to be under center in the sunshine state.

Thought #2 What Eric Mangini said, “Were going to start the guy who gives us the best chance to win.” What Eric Mangini meant, “Both these guys suck, I wish I had my old job as the film monkey for the Pats back.” Oh and by the way, Brady Quinn’s QB rating right now, 62.9. Might be time to spend less time on the ab rocker and more time watching film, just saying.

Thought #3 – T.O. kept it together yesterday…well for a while at least. After NBC’s Rodney Harrison referred to Owens as a clown, T.O. did what any real man does, he tweeted a very mean tweet. Check it out, he even used all those little tweeting grammar shortcuts 090928-terrell-owens-200nfl

“I could less about Rodney Harrison! Anybody tht using steroids, yes STEROIDS rodney, is a cheater & cheated the game!
Is tht Y u used steroids b/c u were worried about ur stats or ws it b/c u were losing it? Lol! U’re a loser & a cheater? Got any steroids I cn borrow? Hey rodney! Send me sum steroids 2 the Bills facility next week!”

As for Harrison, he’s planning an official response just as soon as he can find a 12 year old girl to translate the lingo for him.

Thought #4 – Carolina needs tonight far more than Dallas does. I believe the NFC South is going to be a way harder division to win than the NFC East this season. The Saints are blazing and Falcons are legit, that’s going to be very tough for the Panthers to compete with down the stretch. Meanwhile, other than the Giants, the NFC East doesn’t have a stud team. Sure the Eagles are good right now, but we all know  Westbrook and McNabb will randomly miss games all year, and you can’t play the Chiefs every week fellas. Likewise this is a far more crucial game for Jake Delhomme than Tony Romo.

Speaking of which, I need to quit typing and go watch the intros for the game. I’d hate to miss the smoked up entrance and I’m still hoping the WCW Nitro girls show up.

UPDATE: Tuesday Morning Quick Thoughts:

The Cowboys and the Panthers were both over hyped, and neither can win their division right now.

The Cowboys really miss having a legit #1 receiver and I really miss having Jessica Simpson to look at between plays rather than seeing Jerry Jones’s luxury box. Go pick up a U.S. weekly Tony and get to work picking out a new lady, preferably a brunette.

Either Colt McCoy or Sam Bradford should be living in Charlotte this time next year.
