Thoughts on NFL's opening week?

The NFL is back! On the first Sunday, some teams (San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos) won as expected, others (New Orleans Saints, New England Patriots) suffered surprising defeats, and a few more (Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs) were downright demoralized. On Monday, the Detroit Lions grabbed the headlines by routing the New York Giants. What's your take on some of the major questions from Week 1 action?

The numbers say Tom Brady no longer is a top-five quarterback. Brady, meanwhile, says only one number matters: the score. All of which is to say, the status of the New England Patriots star is up for discussion. Where does the three-time Super Bowl champion rank among the NFL's signal-callers today?

Blame for Cowboys' struggles?

Chicken or egg? Quarterback or guy calling the shots? This was discussed by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on Tuesday, the 25th anniversary of him buying the team. Jones took the blame for the team not winning a ring with Tony Romo, saying the responsibility "starts here." Do you agree? Will Jones' regret turn into triumph someday?
