It's very sad to watch if you have Miles Austin and Felix Jones on your fantasy team and needed 20 points to win your game.

They have combined for 4.5 points tonight.  Austin's td that flew through his hands in the first, and his alligator arms in the second cost me 10 points.

I didn't realize they sold 105,000 tickets for the opening game in that stadium.  I'm shocked that Jerry Jones didn't figure out how to get his stadium fit at least 113, 000.

Not like him to settle for second place

for top 5 pick.  Romo will be out for at least a month or two.  That means the Lions will face Kitna and the Cowboys OL are terrible.  The Lions should win this game IMO.

The New Math had a sweet touchdown dance. As much as I wish he'd stuck around, he made the right decision...and now he's proving himself in the NFL. Always gotta cheer for a Michigan Man.

Amani Toomer is sharing the anchor spot with the head sports guy on NYC Channel 9 (where we luddites sans cable watch the ESPN broadcasts of the local teams).  The senior guy is doing most of the talking and shunting off to the locker room interviews, but Amani really looks good.  Whatever criticism he's gotten lately for comments about M's program (of which I have no first-hand knowledge, but have heard hints), he was an underappreciated WR in the NFL until non-Giants people starting realizing he was becoming the Gints' all-time record-holder, and he mentored Manningham for the brief time they overlapped.

[Excuse me.  They're back from the ad.]

Cowboys are a complete laughing-stock.

Weren't they supposed to be Super Bowl champions LOL

It's not just Detroit...it's SF too, and Carolina, all with 1 win haha

Did Manningham say University of Michigan when they announced the starters? I remember last time he was on MNF he said his high school instead. I was thinking maybe it was because he didn't graduate.

The game where he said that I believe was Sunday night on NBC.  ESPN did not do the spoken introductions.  Plus, Manningham is not a starter at this point - Nicks and Smith are 1-2.  Manningham comes in as the 3rd.

Obviously I'm a pretty big Giants fan, took the night off from homework (wise, I know) to watch the game at my apartment. It gets to halftime, I think, "Gee, I should take a shower now," and of course my dad calls to talk about Romo's clavicle because he missed the hit, among other things. Halftime comes and goes, still haven't showered, so I take a quick one at a commercial. 

AND I COME BACK TO FIND MY ROOMMATES WATCHING A RECORDED EPISODE OF DESPERATE FUCKING HOUSEWIVES. 

I'm just standing there, in complete shock, and managed to eke out a coherent sentence asking (in the politest way possible) if that was, in fact, a recording. They said, "Yea, but don't worry, we're recording your game for you."

WHAT. THE. FUCK. NO. That's not how that works WE'RE NOT MARRIED WE'RE NOT EVEN CUDDLING PLATONICALLY I HAVE FEELINGS TOO AND THEY ARE TELLING ME IT'S FOOTBAW TIME AND ELI HAS HIS SHIT TOGETHER TONIGHT AND IT'S MNF AGAINST THE COWBOYS AND MY FANTASY GAME IS ON THE LINE AND THAT SHOW IS AWFUL TO BEGIN WITH.

I DON'T WANT TO LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE THIS IS OK. I WILL NEVER FORGIVE MYSELF FOR SHOWERING.

/much needed vent to people who I hope actually understand this sentiment, sorry this was late for caps lock day
