Yeah it's only the first week, but these individual and team performances were an amazing way to get things going. Combine the win with home losses by the Stains and Bolts (too bad they weren't divisional), and of course the biggest loss of the day for the Pats* and I'd say it was a blissful begining to the season.
Let's keep this thing rollin'!!!!!!!!!!
"I hate him. Everybody says I'm supposed to be polite when I talk to you all, but I hate him..." "He talks too much, he doesn't make sense, he's fat, he's sloppy, he acts like he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.
"Not too many people have personalities like that and survive in life. I don't know how he does it."
