Ole Miss and Dallas won causing me to have at terrible weekend. The Steelers won again though. If we beat Baltimore next week without Ben Roughburger I'm going to bet the house and future that we're going to win the Super Bowl again in 2011. Our defense is great and apparently our offense is on the verge of the same. I wanted Atlanta to win then I felt sorry for the Saints losing a game they should have won. Poor Valley State. hey must fight on because if Prairie View can recover anybody can.
