Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

There may be an Executive Decision&#153 regarding the Houston Texans even before these start counting for real.

Carolina 34, at Baltimore 24

Seattle 17, at Green Bay 10

at Dallas 24, Cincinnati 18

New Orleans 31, at Houston 23

at San Transexual 34, Minne-haha 14

Watch out.&#160 Teddy Ginn’s back.

Ted Ginn Jr. returned a punt 74 yards for a touchdown, and the Carolina Panthers’ defense scored three times in a 34-27 preseason victory over the mistake-prone Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night.

Drayton Florence took an interception 71 yards into the end zone, Thomas Davis scored on a 2-yard fumble return and linebacker Luke Kuechly picked off another of Joe Flacco’s passes late in the second quarter to set up a 54-yard field goal by Graham Gano for a 24-7 lead.

Carolina (2-1) had just 67 yards in offense before halftime, yet reeled off 24 consecutive points after Baltimore (2-1) scored on its first possession.

The light appears to be going on in Ron Rivera’s defense. The NFC South could be in a bit o’ trouble.

Christine Michael ran for 97 yards and Stephen Williams snatched a ball from cornerback Loyce Means in the end zone for a 42-yard touchdown catch in the Seattle Seahawks’ 17-10 preseason victory over the Green Bay Packers on Friday night.

About the only exciting thing that happened at ViQueen-FairyWhiner was that three drunken, limp-wristed fools invaded the field during play.&#160 Whether they were streaking or not is anyone’s guess, as NBC stupidly dutifully cut away to a shot from the circling blimp.&#160 Presumably, one of the “streakers” got blindsided by a Whiner lineback, but that’s only hearsay.

This Cowboy team looks better right now than at any time during the last three years.

Yes, Romo/Orton/Tanney were sacked their share of times, but Romo to Dez Bryant positively shredded&#160 the Bengal defense.&#160 And when it wasn’t Bryant, it was Romo to Austin (a number of good catches, plus a touchdown in the back of the end zone.

The running game didn’t look like a turtle mired in molasses, and the line – after a couple of fuck-ups early – actually looked like an offensive line.&#160 Doug Free moved inside to guard, and while they probably won’t go with that lineup in two weeks vs the Douchebags, it performed well Saturday night.

The defense got another couple of turnovers, and didn’t allow the Cincinnati first-team offense to score.&#160 In fact, the only first-half points the Bengals got were from a 75-yard punt return.

Which brings me to the special teams.&#160 Rich Bisaccia is making no one forget about Joe DeCamillis – and DeCamillis was awful.

The General informs me that the Texans were playing without Brian Cushing & JJ Watt.&#160 And Arian Foster didn’t play all that much.&#160 Okay, point(s) conceded.

Still, you should be able to score more than 23 points against a team learning a 3-4 defense from Rob Fucking Ryan&#160 of all people.&#160 And if this, Game 3, is traditionally considered the Dress Rehersal&#153 game…

The PFW will return Thursday, when things start on the high school & college levels for reals, and we chronicle (sort of) the Governor’s Cup.

Oh, and the second-guesses?

Perhaps the Cowgirls can play their way back into the PFW…
