    It's a long list, and with no Bears game, I'm trapped.

    Honestly, as long as it's not raining I plan on doing some basic yard work, and then taking the dogs for a very long walk(2-3hrs worth, they've gotten much better about being around eachother since I did it last Sat.

    Drinking beer and playing video games. I'll occasionally check in on the games and see which ones are interesting.

    The Jets are playing the Bengals this weekend. 2 good defenses going against 2 mediocre offenses (The Jets have no receivers and Andy Dalton has been off all year). The Jets obviously have the better defense (I never thought that neglecting to draft offense with their 2 first round picks, that their defensive line would be so amazing), and if Dalton shows up, the Bengals have the better offense. With the Ivory playing out of his mind, and Geno Smith able to string a couple of decent games together this year, they've got an outside shot of developing an offense THIS YEAR. This looks to be one of the better games this weekend, anyway, so I'd recommend it.



    As for a negative thought: Eddy Lacy has run for 303 yards the last 3 weeks, and leads the NFL for that stretch. Hopefully Ratliff wants to come here.

    I can't see the logic of hating them.

    there's other games on TV and if it's a nice day like today, get out and enjoy the weather.

    Other games sure... but it is hard to enjoy a game you are not emotionally invested in
