Have never had DN myself, but my Mom had it for a while and she was always *****ing about it. Not only that, but their sports coverage was beyond awful. Not sure if that's been resolved or not, though.

Now reports on Jennings are that he is 50/50 for tomorrow.

Regardless, it's obvious he'll be limited, and I think we're in great shape to go 2-0. I just hope we can find ways to contain Clay on the pass rush. If so, I think we win by more than a TD.

I'd LOVE to have RCN, that's all my research has yielded, RCN kicks ass, everything else sucks, can't get it here yet though.

As weird as it may sound, I'd like to see if we can win without Jennings again. Would give us more leverage that we do not "need" him to win.

Is Comcast that bad by you guys? We had it at our last apartment and it was AWESOME. $40/month for just basic TV, with On Demand, and it had everything we ever wanted to watch. When we moved we moved to an area that was U-Verse or DTV only due to zoning rights. We were pretty pissed, and have used both since that move... and neither compare with Comcast. U-Verse is just way too ****ing expensive, and DTV is meh... but at least it's cheap.

I don't think any non-Rice team should ever say that, except for MAYBE a Calvin-less team.

We need money to lock up 12 and 52, but it may come down to Raji and Jennings. Take discounts!

RCN is terrible, don't believe the hype.

So who is going to cover Finley tonight? He always kills us, had 11 targets week 1, and Rodgers is already hinting that he's going to lock in on him.

Maybe Conte? Don't know if the Bears have anyone who really can match up with him. Let's just hope he has another case of the drops.

Our d-line getting consistent pressure is the main factor. If we can get consistent pressure up front and play conservative pass defense, we can outscore them.

Yeah, that would certainly help, and definitely possible. I'm not even looking for someone to shut him down, he's a match up nightmare physically, but hopefully someone steps up.

Definitely. We need to run the ball 30+ times for 150+ yards.

Vegas has us at +5 across the board... I normally don't bet on the Bears, Hawks, or Cubs because of personal bias... but that's a tempting line.

5 is that perfect number for the book on this game. I can't see it coming down to a fieldgoal, it's gonna be a 7 or more point win for someone, IMO. +5 in this instance is essentially just even, you're better off taking the moneyline.

Eh, I disagree. I can easily see this game being decided by a FG or less.

You basically get 3 points for being at home. That's quite a line, people don't have a ton of faith in the Packers I guess. Basing everything off of one week. I would stay away from putting money on the Bears for this one.

Dish didn't have AMC so that would have pissed me off during Breaking Bad.

My comcast is good but it's expensive right now out of the promo period. I have to threaten to move to another provider soon again. ATT offered me a pretty good deal when I called about the iPhone 5 yesterday. I will probably just use that as leverage.

AT&T cannot be trusted. They started my strike when they unexpectedly raised my rate to $190 a month when I was promised $127 after my promo year. I accidently paid it once, then noticed and they told me "when you paid the bill, you agreed to the price increase". They wouldn't even shave off $1. It really didn't matter that I paid the bill, they were going to do what they wanted to and they did. So I did what I wanted to do and disconnected. Yeah, no AMC won't work, I love Breaking Bad.

So what the hell do I do? Everything sucks. Maybe go back to Comcast, but they aren't much better than AT&T when it comes to the bill.

Well Breaking Bad isn't on again for a year. Unless you really like Walking Dead which is about to start up. They all raise you after the promo.
