The Seahawks are 7-2. One of the best records in the NFL. Why must they play up to or down to whoever their opponent is each week? The Bucs came in at 2-5, their QB was tied for throwing the most interceptions this season, yet they march up and down the field and it took going to overtime for the Seahawks to win. They are putting me on the cusp of a heart attack each week!

Used to love the NFL. They killed my interest. I no longer watch nor do I even want to. In fact, most professional sports are dead to me (I root for Army's teams). They're just a bunch of highly paid prostitutes, lol.

Except that Suzuki guy, I like him.

I hear you, really. During the kneeling crap I was seriously pissed off and I am glad that certain players are getting what they deserve. If you are paying attention, some of the most visible players doing that are either not even able to get on a team or are continually getting cut from teams and moving around aimlessly. Team management are typically pretty smart, and play the long game.

But I will never be able to erase the decades of pride and shame, hope and pain that my Seattle teams have given me. I have always felt like my teams represent ME to the rest of the country, in a way. As far as sports goes. I am an Army vet, I know that some of these players are ignorant assholes, but so are people everywhere. I can be disappointed in specific people, but not the team as a whole. Paul Allen (RIP) never knelt or said anything bad. Russell Wilson never did any of that. After the win on Sunday they showed him in a circle of players, from both teams, kneeling and praying. I am not religious but that still shows me a level of maturity, honor, and just plain likeability.

I'll never blame you or anyone for liking/not liking anything. We all have our own roads to trek. But Seattle, as crappy as parts of it can be, is where I was born, and some things transcend time and people. Fortunately, sports teams do! hahaha

It's funny to say yet also true. Also Kurt Suzuki was the catcher of the Oakland A's for a long time, and I used to think it was cool that he was the catcher, while my boy Ichiro Suzuki was up to bat. Kurt was awesome at the White House. All he said was "I love you all." Hahahaha that cracked me up!

I started drifting away from the NFL long before the kneeling fiasco. And the kneeling did matter to me but it was more of a straw that broke the camel's back. My distaste really started with the vague rules that seem like they're just meant to keep games artificially close. It was the way that the sports media whips the crowds up into a frenzy. "Don't we all just hate that Tom Brady everyone? He's a cheater! Don't pay attention to the fact that every other QB does pretty much the same thing." "Look at Aaron Rodgers! Hey Favre fans, it looks like Rodgers is even better! Hey Rodgers fans, look, Favre is now playing for the hated Vikings! Don't you just hate him now?" "Hey Christians! How about this Tim Tebow? Maybe he'll make your team! Quick, buy some of his jerseys!" And of course this isn't unique to the NFL. All pro sports leagues do this stuff to some degree.

Now I realize that this rant might be coming off a little unhinged. But somewhere along the way, the John Madden/Pat Summerall games gave way to these artificial feeling cult of personality displays. I do love the game of football. I just don't like the NFL and I miss liking it.

* Full disclosure, I do dislike Aaron Rodgers. I loved Favre. And I grew up a Giants fan.

My patriots were destroyed Sunday night... Against a very good team.. much respect!

The good thing is that there is a bye and they have time to learn from their mistakes and to get more reps to Sanu and Harry

It was great watching Dallas sweep the Giants yet again; it started out pretty dicey, but the Cowboys built up a ton of steam and never up.

The way they played against Philly and New York is the way they should always be playing. Their three game losing streak is still baffling, given the team they're fielding this year.

It is no surprise at all that you are a Cowboys fan. I'll just leave it at that.

That actually fits my expectations completely and doesn't make it any better. I'll just leave it at that.

YOU NERDZ.

Seahawks are all that anyone should care about. The 49ers are the last undefeated team. We should all be rooting for the Seahawks to end that on Monday, unless you are rooting for the first undefeated team since the 1972 Dolphins.
