Monday ....mournings...

First.....let us all take a moment to remember our veterans....especially the ones who paid the ultimate price....the ones who gave their lives to our country.....the greatest country on earth...the United States of America! We salute those who have served in all sectors of the military. God bless you!

Falcons 20, Panthers 13. Yes, Atlanta has a 2 game winning streak. In a game that featured a lot of hard hits and brutal defense.....the falcons beat Carolina to improve to 3-6 on the year. This will not be the worst Falcon team ever.....but you have to feel sorry for Carolina......They have been decimated with injuries. A 44 year old Vinny Testaverde was behind center trying to recapture the fountain of youth. The Panthers actually led this game late into the fourth quarter.....but Joey Harrington found Alge Crumpler with a 30 yard touchdown pass with 20 seconds remaining in the game.

The Saints......just ain't ....New Orleans lost home to the St Louis Rams, snap their 4 game winning streak. Can't quite figure these guys out. Drew Brees in regressing and Reggie Bush is over-rated.

Manning has 6 interceptions? a bazaar Sunday night game against the Chargers, the Colts still had a chance to win .....but kicker Adam Vinatieri missed a chip shot 29-yard field goal with 1:31 left in the game. It was a crazy rainy night in San Diego that saw the Chargers nearly blow a 23-7 fourth quarter lead.

LSU is number 1.....Again.....The new BCS poll has LSU at #1 this week. With Ohio State losing to Illinois, the Tigers return to the top spot they held earlier this year before losing to Kentucky (43-37) in triple overtime October 13.

Our man .....Sylvester Croom....has done it again...His Mississippi State Bulldogs defeated Alabama, 17-12.....for the second consecutive year. Croom has his team (6-4) bowl eligible for the first time since 2000.

Somebody will be shut out..... There are only two undefeated teams in Division 1 College Football, Hawaii (9-0) and Kansas (10-0). Kansas is ranked 3rd.....while Hawaii is ranked 16th. Of the two......Hawaii seems to be in the better position to run the table. Kansas still has games with Iowa State and 5th ranked Missouri....and a Big 12 championship game with Oklahoma. It's way to early to try to predict the national championship why we need some sort of play-off. It can be done.

The Boston Celtics will not lose a game......Well.....that might be a team has ever gone 82-0.....and the Celts have not yet gone out far...they are the class of the NBA east.

And finally........for all the 'necks.......Jimmy Johnson ....he of NASCAR fame.....won his 4th race in a row to virtually lock up th Nextel Cup race. Dale,Jr.........Where are you?
