It takes a big man to admit that he is wrong and an even bigger man to laugh at that man. Today I would like to apologize to the Bills and Raiders for reserving my final two spots of “Teams That Didn’t Show Up in Week One”. I would like to replace the #9 and #10 slots with the following: Leodis McKelvin (Buffalo Bills) and New England Patriots/San Diego Chargers.

I hate to pick on McKelvin and I am sure Bills fans are use to their hearts being ripped out of their chest, but that fumble easily cost Buffalo the game. I appreciate the effort and the fight for extra yards, but sometimes taking the knee wins the game. I learned this from Westbrook in the past and if you had him on your fantasy football team you remember his famous play. Alright I will leave this alone.

New England and San Diego were everyone’s favorites to win it all and they barely beat two of the bottom ten teams on Monday night. I’m a little concerned. I see weak offensive lines and vulnerable defenses. We will see if this continues.

So I was all set today to write an article about which is better the “Anticipation of the NFL Season” or “The Actual Season” and after last night I want to leave this topic alone. I was glued to the TV during both Monday night games and enjoyed every minute. I was set to write up a valid argument that the offseason drama outperforms the actual season and then there is Buffalo and Oakland providing some fight.

There was a certain feel last night to the Chargers at Raiders game that felt like a “Fight Club” back alley brawl that you say to your wife and kids I could take those guys and really be thinking thank God I am not on that field right now. It was violent in Oakland, there was true hate and emotion on the field and it took until the last game of week one to really connect with me.

So with injuries plaguing some of our favorite playoff picks this year, here is one guy hoping for some NFL drama as the middle of the pack gains on the top feeders.
