- I don't know if Cam Newton is that good, or if the Packers defense is that bad. But I suspect it's both.
- I don't know if the Chiefs are that terrible, or if the Lions are that good. But I suspect it's both.
- Unless the Bears can get their offensive line straightened out, Jay Cutler is going to leave the field some day on a stretcher. People bag on Cutler for his courage, which is unfair, but he needs help.
- The Vikings aren't very good right now. From what I can tell, they just don't have any margin for error at all and the minute they face adversity they are in trouble. And every team in the NFL can bring adversity to its opponent's doorstep. Well, maybe not the Chiefs.
- Russell Wilson is the best present the Wisconsin Badgers have ever received. The Big Ten doesn't look very impressive this year, with one exception.
- It was nice to see the Gophers get a win. I do think Jerry Kill and his staff will get things turned around, but there's a lot of rot to clear out from the ill-fated Brewster regime.
