When rescuers arrived in the crash site to check the situation, no other description that they could give aside from “bad”. The whole situation was bad, the wreck of the plane and etc.

“It was just bad. I’ve never seen an airplane in my entire life torn up like that was. I couldn’t even make out the model or anything. It was so torn up with parts lying everywhere. All it is, is a little mound of dirt out in the field. It looks like somebody just dug a hole. From a distance you wouldn’t even know there was a crash there until you started walking up to it. It’s buried in the ground that far.” police said.

Deepest condolences to the family of the plane’s pilot Geary D. Gearn.

Minnesota Vikings vs Chicago Bears NFL Football Week 10

Minnesota Vikings looks more superior than the Chicago Bears but it does not show on their current standings. The Vikings are 3-5 while the Bears are 5-3. Chicago Bears was once a strong Super Bowl contender until it suffered two successive defeats from Seattle Seahwaks and Washington Redskins. The Vikings are lucky last week since they manages to get pass the Arizona Cardinals in overtime, 27-24.

We will be seeing JJake Cutler and Brett Favre once again in this game and they are throwing picks at an alarming rate. The Vikings hopes to enlist the power of Sidney Rice to step up for them since Randy Moss is out of the game. The Bears should also be wary of Vikings running back Adrian Peterson who had scored a rushing touchdown in six consecutie games against them.

Chicago Bears nearly lost to the Buffalo Bills 22-19 in last weeks game. Can the Minnesota Vikings break their road losing streat and beat the Chiacgo Bears? Well we will see the answer to thar question later today. Here is the Minnesota Vikings vs Chicago Bears Colts NCAA Football game preview.

The Indianapolis Colts had never lost at home but the Cincinnati Bengals had a strong advantage as well when they are on the road. A perennial losing team will be facing a team which had won more than double that of the Bengals. These two teams will meet today in the NFL football game at the Lucas Oil Stadium. At the end of this game only one team will be victorious.

A lost will be heavier if it would occur to the Indianapolis Colts. Indianapolis and Tennessee shares the leadership in the AFC South standings and a defeat will just make them fall in the conference standings. Tennessee Titans is also facing a formidable opponent today, the Miami Dolphins.

Cincinnati Bengals have already suffered five straight losses and this is looking to be their sixth straight loss but the fans of the Bengals are still corrsing their fingers that during this match they will see the power of their team. Another loss and they might as well say goodbye to their NFL chances.

What the Bengals should worry is that they will be facing a superb player like Peyton Manning and their lack of any pass rush and sudden decline in their coverage skills will not be very helpful. Though neither team are very good in running the ball, the Bengals might pull this one off if they will allow Cedric Benson every opportunity to get back on track against a softer Colts front. C

Some trivia for the CIncinnati Bengals vs Indianapolis Colts, here goes …. Bengals are 15-3 when Carson Palmer has at least three touchdown passes in a game. Meanwhile, Cincinnati’s Terrell Owens has a touchdown reception in five consecutive games.

In previous meetings, the Colts have won five straight games at home against the Bengals plus their coach, Jim Caldwell has a 10-1 record at home.

Watch out for Cincinnati Bengals vs Indianapolis Colts updates here. Now here is a quick preview from Football Gameplan 2010.

Miami Dolphions had not won a single game at home and now they will be hosting the Tennessee Titans in a game that could mean another loss for them. Both of these teams came from a defeat last week and both are trying to pick up from an unwanted loss and indeed one of them will get the victory tonight.

Tennessee Titans suffered a defeat at the hands of San Diego Chargers, 33-25 while the Miami Dolphins was defeated by the Baltimore Ravens, 26-10. Can the Dolphins score a victory against a strong Titans team?

Chris Johnson will debut today for the Titans so expect a stronger game for Tennessee. The Titans have also won six consecutive November games and this might be a good start since they are fresh from a Bye week. The loser here will suffer a tiebreaking blow likely to keep it out of the postseason. Expect a very physical game as well from these two teams.

Players to watch today includes Tennessee’s Vince Young who has the second-best passer rating in the AFC, and for the Miami Dolphins watch out for running backs Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown who ranks second and third in franchise history in rushing touchdowns.

Is Cleveland Browns doing a late season resurrection? It is interesting to note that Cleveland Browns have defeated to top teams in succeeding weeks. They toppled former Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints on October 24, 30-17 and then after their Bye week they surprised top placer New England Patriots, 34-14. Both of their victories are not close but are convincing victories. Today the Browns will face another top team, the New York Jets.

Is the New York Jets prepared for the comebacking Cleveland Browns? Last week they suffered their second victory during the season via an 8-0 defeat from the Green Bay Packers. It was a low scoring game and seems both team had been more eager on defense. Today they will face a team which seems to have found both their offensive and defensive strategy. The Jets would avoid a second loss while the Cleveland Browns want to extend their winning streak and catch up with the pack.

The Jets have won seven consecutive games on the road and they will definitely want to add this one to that winning column. They also had a very strong player against the Cleveland Browns, New York’s LaDainian Tomlinson. Tomlinson has eight rushing touchdowns agaisnt the Browns.

CLeveland Browns however had an inside look at the New York Jets through their own team members. They will be starting with four former Jets on defense. Cleveland also has Peyton Hillis who is tied for third in the NFL with seven rushing touchdowns.

WIll the Clevaland Browns do a third upset in a row? This will be an exciting question that would be answered later today. Meanwhile here is Hammerin’ Hank talks Jets odds against the Browns.

No Tier 5 and HR 4213 Unemployment Extension Set To Expire: Congress Needs to Act Fast

No Tier 5 and HR 4213 Unemployment Extension Set To Expire: Congress Needs to Act Fast: Congress Needs to Act Fast – The US Congress midterm elections were finished but until now, no Tier 5 has been passed in the Congress. More so, the original unemployment extension entitled HR 4213 signed by President Obama last July is set to expire by the end of November, which is around two weeks from now.

Still, there are plenty of issues being debated for which include concerns over the budget  deficit, political insecurity after the midterms, etc. Unfortunately, the Congress needs to act fast because if they don’t pass another unemployment extension, around two million jobless victims will prematurely stop receiving benefits. That’s really sad especially because of the coming Christmas season. Definitely, this will be one of the saddest Christmas celebration for all the jobless Americans.

Apparently, aside from the issues mentioned above, there is also a debate between extending the current level of unemployment extension benefits and adding additional weeks of benefits. Which is more appropriate? Of course, it would be better if it would be both but again, Republicans will probably halt it in the Senate before it can even reach the House of Representatives.

The issue here is whether to continue to allow people who lose their jobs to get a maximum of 99 or 76 weeks of benefits (depending on the unemployment rate of their state), or to let the original unemployment extension die and only allow unemployed people to get a maximum of 26 weeks. Time is running and the Congress needs to act immediately.

Georgia vs. Auburn Football 2010 Live Coverage on CBS

The Auburn Tigers are looking good at 10-0 and they are just an inch away from clinching the top rank in the BCS. If number 1 Oregon will blink in their game against California then Auburn will be in the lead. However, before that the Tigers should first defeat a worthy opponent in football, the Georgia Bulldogs.

Georgia Bulldogs have lost in its previous two games against ranked teams. First they lost to then number 24 South Carolina 17-6 and then the next week they were once again defeated by then number 12 Arkansas 31-24. Both of these games are pretty close. During Georgia’s game against Arkansas they even outscored them on the last quarter.

Auburn Tigers will surely not bow and bow down their defense against unranked Georgia. They are also undefeated in the SEC and they would not fall short now. Cam Newton’s status is still not very sure for today’s game and this is the possible exploit that Georgia would make. Without Cam Newton, Auburn may have some vulnerabilities.

More than the game however, there is a back story with Auburn and their top player, Cam Newton. Cam Newton is being rigged with controversy. The controversy involved a trading scam where there is an issue that he was offered to Mississippi State for $200,000 but his father got a more lucrative offer with Auburn. There is another issue here where Cam Newton is being rumored to have cheated on schoolwork while at his previous school.

Georgia’s junior receiver A.J. Green has returned from a four-game suspension, imposed by the NCAA for selling a bowl jersey to someone deemed an agent

Georgia will likely try to control the time of possession with its running game, though it will be hard to pass up taking some shots downfield to A.J. Green against Auburn’s suspect secondary. Green will probably use his full power in order to get the most against Auburn who ranks next-to-last in the SEC in pass yards allowed (241 per game).

Can Auburn Tigers pull it off? Well let us wait for game updates for the Georgia vs Auburn NCAA football game.
