Christian Ponder and Tim Tebow are the rising young star QB's in the NFL. Both these guys were ridiculed by the so called experts but slam dunked in their faces with great performances today.

Add a third - Demarco Murray for the Cowboys. Wonder if Felix Jones ever heard of Wally Pipp?

I was a matter of time before Ponder would take over, to bad his initiation came against Green Bay. I'm glad Tebow won but the level of competition he faced wasn't the defending Super Bowl Champs.

Agreed. Beating a winless team in OT is not all that much cause for celebration. People need to scale down the enthusiasm.

The Packer's defense has given up over 300 passing yards per game and isn't as strong as last season. The loss of Nick Collins to injury and Cullen Jenkins in free agency has had an impact. Hopefully they can regroup after the bye week and come back stronger.

The Broncos weren't exactly a juggernaut themselves so this was a big win for that team regardless of the competition.
