Aaron Rodgers, Retired Jerseys, and Chris Henry

Welcome to NFL day folks. It's a glorious day, despite the rain spreading across the country. This, my friends, is what it's all about. The Seahawks take a trip to see the Giants after some horrible comments by Seattle fans a week ago. That should make a bad situation worse for the Seahawks. The NFC East match-up of the Eagles and Redskins is bound to be a barnburner and Chris Henry will look to impress in his first game back with the Bengals. I love this game. A few game notes before you dive into the nachos: • It has been announced that Aaron Rodgers will play today, despite his shoulder injury so adjust your fantasy team accordingly. Or don't. Whatever. • The Texans will start Sage Rosenfels in place of Matt Schaub for today's home opener against the colts. Apparently Schaub has a viral infection. Maybe he should have rethought that trip to USC. • The 49ers will retire Steve Young's #8 at Candlestick Park. Look for Joe Montana boooing from the wings. • Ocho Cinco and TO have been jabbering all week about each other. Does anyone really care about this anymore besides Bob Costas? • With two coaches fired this week, the Rams and the Raiders will be playing with interim coaches. My prediction: still trainwrecks. • The Bears Tommy Harris was suspended for today's game by the team for not showing up to practice. Look for Harris and Plaxico at the bar. • Brian Westbrook "should be ok to start" and Willis McGahee is a gametime decision. Don't they know we have lineups to set? I mean, c'mon. Feel free to add updates in the comments as they become available. I'll be back with the first NFL Update after the games start.
