Default Pro Football Started.....?

OK, I am watching the Raiders v Eagles game tonight and in the intro the said that Canton, OH is where pro football started. According to my info, pro football started in the Pittsburgh area. Is it where the NFL started?

As far as I know the first pro team was the Canton Bulldogs. By the way, I know they are only playing the Raiders, but the Eagles looked really good on that first drive.

Yeah McNabb looked SHARP. And so did Westbrook. This team might be better than what people think. They were already a great team before they acquired TO going to the NFC Championship game all those years in a row...so I don't know why people are counting them out...

Just saw a commercial for Friday Night Lights...that's going to be a pretty good series it appears...I guess it's going to be like the movie?

Boy people get excited about performances in pre-season. I'm not saying the Eagles won't do fine - but the Steelers offense didn't score one touchdown during their 4 pre-season games. I wouldn't put so much stock into one impressive drive.
