Sweed does look good.

Burnett with the fumble on the punt return...man how hard is it to find someone to hold on to the ball and have half-way decent returns??

Also, FWIW I'm elated/ecstatic/thrilled to have Sepulveda back...never thought I'd have that much love for a punter, but damn...I was getting really tired of watching 18-27 yard ducks last season.

Minus the dropped pass on the Cards eight in the third quarter which would have led to a first down, Sweed looked good.  While it's still early, I was not impressed with Mendenhall last night.  9 carries for 24 yards is not exactly something to write home about.

Mandenhall can't run...   if the line keeps doing this.

Sweed looked good in getting open, but that drop shouldn't have happened. It was just like the one he dropped on the bomb last year. He should have laid out for it intead of trying to catch it on the run. If I was the coaches, I'd stick him fifteen yards away from Ben and tell Ben to throw a hundred passes to one side or the other and force Sweed to dive for them.

Mendy looked tentative to me. I wonder if he's still thinking about the shoulder.

I don't understand what appears to be the majority feeling about Vick, based on the headlines and stuff in the Philly papers this morning.

I think 2 years in prison and losing however many millions by not playing and "community service" or whatever he is doing with the humane society constitutes serving his debt to society. 

If he was participating in a cock fighting ring (not that kind of fighting or ring, Otis), nobody would care, but because everyone treats their own dogs like the messiah, he should spend life in prison?  Isn't the purpose of prison to rehabilitate?  How does society know if he has been rehabilitated if he isn't given a 2nd chance?

The dog-fighting wasn't Mr. Mexico's first deplorable act.  And like it or not, we segregate our perception of what's acceptable, with having hundreds of dogs rip each other to shreds and/or being electrocuted at one end of the continuum, and squashing a roach at the other, for instance.  I for one don't have a problem with that, but I'm not a Buddhist.  The thing I would ask is what kind of mindset it takes to engage in this kind of activity; the well-known serial correlation to animal cruelty notwithstanding, I see this less as an issue of Vick having made an "error" for which he needs feign "repentance," and more an issue of someone who is fundamentally fucked up and THEE leading candidate to go OJ ten, twenty years downstream.  Dungy looked into his eyes with probably the same psychological acumen that Cowher looked into Zo's, and all the "give a brother a chance" stuff is fine, 'cept I'm not buying. 

Vick just ain't good people.

Ok here is the reason --he killed dogs.  By electrocution, drowning and smashing them into the ground.  And he did it for 7 years.  He did not go out and get hammered and decide to drive and kill someone.  He was killing animals for 7 years.  And why, because they could not perform in his eyes.  That is sick demented behavior.  Now that being said he has paid his debt to society...but is he rehabilited, I doubt it.  I think everyone needs to see some genuine remorse in his eyes.  We shall see what he has to say on 60 Minutes Sunday night.
