Thought #1 – Tom Brady got told to take his skirt off this weekend and I have to agree. Brady whined his way into getting two horrible rougher the passer penalties in their defeat of the Ravens yesterday. Now, granted those penalties didn’t turn Mark Clayton’s hands to stone, and Brady didn’t make up the rule (although he darn sure was part of the reason for it’s Tom Brady Crybabycreation.) but Brady did a great impression of the kid from your neighborhood who calls carrying the ball or illegal screens during pick up basketball games. You know that kid, he causes encroachment penalties when you go throw the football around at Thanksgiving and takes a walk during softball games at picnics. This is also the kid from school who always reminded the teacher that she left some of the spelling words on the board just as she was about to pass out the spelling test. I hate that kid. You hate that kid. Well that was Brady yesterday, “Ref, ref, isn’t that a penalty? I mean that guy almost touched me and it clearly states in the new NFL rules, Tom Brady shall not be touched.” I know you didn’t make the rule, but you didn’t have be the whistle blower.  Tom, you are not invited to my picnic.

Thought #2 – The Manning brothers are awesome, although Eli’s flaw is that I drafted him on my fantasy league team. For that he is now suffering from some strange random, Travis Williams- esque injury to his heal.

Thought #3- Not only are the Browns always on a quest to find new interesting ways to lose games, they also find new interesting ways to stay in the news. This week stars the highly overrated Braylon Edwards who spent his evening, following his catchless performance in the Browns’ tanking against the Bengals, punching one of Lebron James’s friends in the eye. Apparently there is a little jealousy there. Perhaps it’s the whole successful highly drafted athlete verses a highly drafted bust? Nice to see Braylon attempt to drag Cleveland’s one bright spot into the trailor park of suckyness that the Browns and Indians are living in.  All I know is that if I’m Lebron, I would strongly consider getting out of Cleveland before it rubbed off on me. That Drew Carey shaped stain is hard to scrub out.

Thought #4 – Tony Romo apparently has not played any Madden over the past 10 years. If he had, he would know you don’t through at Champ Baily. Can we officially go ahead and say the Cowboys aren’t that good? Can we finally say that Romo is just average on most days? Why are we so hesitant to do this? And why hasn’t he started dating someone really hot so I have someone to gawk at between plays?

Thought #5 – The Broncos are good, but really played anyone good yet. Granted they held the Cowboys running game down fairly well, but they were pretty injury hampered. It will be interesting to see how they new over the next few games.

Thought #6 – Still need more suggestions for shoes. Suggestions for bests: The Space Jam Jordans and the original Penny’s. Worst: Shawn Kemp’s and the Kobe Potato loafers.

Thought #7 – I think  Rogers has a nice tonight and Favre goes a little gunslinger on himself. If the Packers can even slightly contain Peterson they should have a decent shot. I like the Packers in a close one, but it should be interesting.

Update: So Bret did go gunslinger, Rogers played good too, but unfortunately no one informed the Packers O-line as to the their job expectations. I’m guessing they just skimmed that whole blocking section of the contract. 8 sacks? 4.5 by Allen alone? Geez.
