Wow... it's gotten quiet in this thread Is it just me or does the year go too goddamn fast when the NFL season kicks off ?? I KNOW it does… I guess just because I treasure my NFL Sundays like the GOLD that they are… but hey with a weekend full of people smoking cigarettes on their way to a WALK TO RAISE CANCER AWARENESS (idiots!!)… and well 603 viruses found on a computer that was REALLY just used to go to wrestling sites (hey you keep me up till 2am scanning the fvcker… I must comment!!)…. Why wouldn’t the NFL week be just as weird!!!
Sunday October 21:
Arizona at Washington:
What a messed up little game… the Redskins again looked ready to ROLL on a badly depleted Cards team with Warner even bobbling snaps with his hurt left arm and TIM RATTAY of all people looking semi-decent (but then again look at their weapons on offense)… I still think Arizona shoulda called the Jets and offered a second round pick for Chad personally… though it’s amazing how the Redskins can AGAIN come up big on a team (despite 95 yards passing from Jason Campbell) and just take the foot off the gas AGAIN like they did to the Giants… but this time they BARELY pull this one out on a missed long Rackers FG, after a weird onside kick play which had the Redskins coaching staff wondering what the HELL was going on… then again they wonder that a lot don’t they?? Damn Redskins are GOOD, but the coaching staff gets too good for it’s own out of date brain-trust sometimes… that Redskins-Cowboys game soon is gonna be a SLOBBERKNOCKER!!!!Falcons at Saints:
If you watched this game… WHY?? Well ok, you have Dunn, Bush or Brees in your fantasy league…. But don’t look now the Saints have won two in a row and might actually have a legit chance to crawl back into this awful divisional race (Carolina and Tampa are only 2 games up and neither is very good at all)… Reggie Bush is getting more used to being THE guy in the backfield… and Drew Brees is getting time to throw… playing defeated and limp teams, who have their season saving black QB get his ankle rolled in the first quarter… I kinda think they’ve folded in the tents in Atlanta this year LONG ago anyway… but like I said… keep an eye on the Saints… if they get back to 4-4, this team may not be as dead as well assumed they were (though I did warn ya that the lack of talent in the NFC South made this not TOTALLY out of reach…)Ravens at Bills:
You know a team is bad (the Ravens) when a deluded Bills fan can smoke some glue and crystal meth and think off this game the Bills can make the playoffs (*insert Jim Mora speech here*).. and like I told him… imagine if Derek had the teams you root for man… Fun TIMES !!,,, but still this game was an exercise in brutality to even glance at when I had the time… and it’s not even like it was a good defensive game… this was two garbage offenses battling for ineptitude rights!!! Give the Bills some credit with some of the painful and scary injuries and more painful losses (Nick Folk anyone??) you could see this team just saying… ok next year… but nope… they’ve rallied behind Trent Edwards and are trying to make a smiliar late season pass at glory like they did last year (jiust to throw more salt on Buffalo wounds eh?)… now watch they’ll go beat the Jets AGAIN next week too!.... As for the Ravens… I said it all before.. just now they start playing teams with real offenses and that small window they had left gets SHUT on their awful faces!Patriots at Miami:
This game made Rutgers/Brown look like a competitive slugfest… this game was so in hand I swear to God Tom Brady spent more time hitting on the Dolphin cheerleaders on the sidelines .. WHILE HE WAS PLAYING… you can see it now… back to the play… hey babe… how are you… wanna see a real man with some rings?? *doesn’t even look and turn…. Tosses the ball*… there ya go Randy.. thanks!!! I swear it was THAT easy for New England…. And not only that but they squash ANY hope Miami had of winning when Ronnie Brown blows out his knee trying to make a tackle! Though I have to say the Pats are making football a little un-fun to watch… I mean it’s TOO EASY… and they don’t even CARE about it being so (after all WHAT WAS THE POINT IN RUNNING A FAKE SPIKE PLAY up 42-7 with 30 seconds left?? I talk about college football teams running up the score for no reason… that’s a DISGRACE… like I said…if I was the Dolphin coach and Brady came out in the 2nd half I’d have put a bounty on him… seriously… TAKE HIM OUT).. what can I say about the Dolphins?? Nine more losses to perfection?? I dunno… I still wanna see them do something against the Giants next week.. but UGH49ers at Giants:
How bad are the Niners too? The Ginats tried play after play early on in this one to HAND the game to the 49ers.. missed PAT’s, bad FG’s… a turnover or two… but the Niners couldn’t run an efficient offense on a bunch of two year old’s trying to potty train.. again it’s just almost unwatchably bad to see this now! The Giants have somethings you need to stop to beat them… stop the pass rush and slow down Burress and you got a chance… needless to say the pass rush killed the most inept offense this side of the Ravens in the NFL!Tampa Bay at Detroit:
Both of these teams have had nifty seasons so far and have given their fans some hope… but Tampa with all their injuries and the problems they have on offense noe… and the Lions with as many weapons as they DO have…. You could just see this coming… Garcia had a nice game but they can’t make the BIG PLAY (and now more then ever if you want to win in the NFL you need a big time QB, and a game breaking WR or two.. look at all the top teams it’s the formula now)… a nd Tampa ain’t got the guns to keep up with the Lions… Kitna plays strong at home and the Lions win!Titans at Houston:
The game of the week… the duel between Sage Rosenfelds and KERRY COLLINS!?!?!? Holy Hell what a weird NFL world we live in! And well the insanity carried right into this game….Vince Young did not play… and then Schaub goes down early in this game after getting SMOKED by Haynesworth!! And the Titans look like they’re gonna roll.. 7 FGs, 2 TDs on the gounrd… they run the ball enough that Kerry Collins can’t screw it up… but BACK COME THE TEXANS (even though half the stadium had left too) including a late TD to Putizer (damn remember when he was semi-relevant)… the onside kick is RECOVERED.. but there’s like 15 penalties called… they GET IT AGAIN (when does THAT ever happen??)….and then you top it off with that stupid Andre Davis DIVING CATCH over two defenders in the end zone… and then Kerry Collins gets them in range for Rob Bironas’ EIGHT field goal to WIN IT!!! Farooqing CRAZY man!!!
Here.. watch for your damn self!!!http://www.nfl.com/g...8...r&week=REG74pm:
Chiefs at Raiders:
22 points??? No WONDER this game was nowhere to be fonud!! But I have to say… hey Jet fans… you think you might want Herm back?? He’s built a defense and an identity in KC now… they run the ball.. and muchly and now even the great Priest Holmes is back in the mix (what a story THAT is)… both defenses played well but the Chiefs shut down the Raiders mutli-headed running attack… and without it Culpepper is NOT good enough to do it on his own anymore… and somehow the Chiefs are atop the AFC West… weird!Jets at Bengals:
Wow, I don’t know what was the bigger shock…. Seeing Chad throwing deep down the field … or the Bengals show heart and effort and come back in this one??? Probably should have watched more of this… but as the ratings showed… when the Dallas Cowboys get a better rating then the Jets… hrrmm (sorry I’m enjoying that).. but even against the dead in the water Bengals, the Jets can’t run the ball well… they passed the ball all over the place… but STOP in the second half… and the Bengals find a way to win… umm… go figure? Least it will be fun to see the NY Media turn heel on Mangini this year (who should just gut the damn team and put the players he actually WANTS in there…) I should say maybe the Bengals are back… but um… no!Vikings at Dallas:
DAMN Adrian Peterson is GOOD ain’t he?? He’s almost good enough by himself (and this O-Line) to make the Vikings a big pain in the neck this year… and the Dallas offense did struggle with the Vikings… never seemed to really get on track again… and this bad first half “ah we’ll go get them in the 2nd half” nonsense HAS to stop… hell don’t spot the Pats 14 points with your heads up your ass and maybe you WIN that game), but the Cowboys defense played solid and made it’s plays (another week with a defensive TD too), and they just found a way to WIN… the Vikings will be solid this year… but if they ever get that game-breaking WR I was talking about… damn they are gonna be a pain in the neck!Bears at Eagles:
Not a game to be trying to enjoy an early dinner too indeed… neither one of these offenses are anything specials… and the defenses have been flat all year too…shown very much so by the SIX field goals to two touchdowns in this game… not the best of reasons to turn away from the Cowboys game…. In fact these two teams play very much the same.. average at best days on the ground and dink and dunk with the offense… well until Brian Griese got hot at the end of the game and marched the Bears 90+ yards in a drive that only be called simply season saving…. And amazing how FAST the Eagle fans stopped showing up at Sun tavern… and I think like their team… they’re done for the year now!!!Rams at Seattle:
When a team as average as every team in the NFL is (I miss the days of 5-8 top tier teams battling for it all… all this crap fighting to find the shine in their pile of sh!t is not fun to watch each week) can pound you 33-6… I don’t really know what to say anymore….Marc Bluger throws 3 picks (SHUT HIM DOWN and SAVE HIM FOR NEXT YEAR)….. the only really alarming stat is that Alexander only had 47 yards rushing… and hasn’t been the same since he drove me to my first Fantasy Football Championship!... I dunno… if you watched this one… good for you… I salivate at Browns and Rams next week!!8pm:
Pittsburgh at Denver:
OK, I’ll admit this game annoyed me not that I have ANY love for the Steelers., but I am ticked off enough the fickle town of Denver has forgotten how bad the Broncos have been because of this little baseball thing (my goal this year is to see that runt Shanahan FIRED), but now the are unfer the radar and on the verge of three losses at home in a ROW…. Both teams really played sloppy miserable turnover filled football in the cold, mistakes all over the place, and the Steelers stabilize and make a nice run late to score 14 unanswered points to take the lead with 70 seconds left… and the Broncos come right back and mister long field goal Jason Elam (where was the time out to ice him guys?? Or better yet… since Shanahan was acting like it was going to be called… DON’T call it and make them take the delay of game penalty!)… who’s the only reason the Broncos have won 3 games as it IS… nails the game winning field goal… then again maybe the Steelers too are a little overrated this year??Monday:
Colts at Jaguars:
Well so much for this being a close game at ALL, the Colts stormed out early… often and it was good game, time for Raw the minute David Garrard was rolled up in the first half (I swear the NFL is like Mortal Kombat this year… the last QB standing WINS!)…. Nothing really much to say here… the Colts just unleashed a balls out assault that the Jags simple have NO answer for….and the Jacksonville backup QB was brutally bad… I still wonder when Drew Bledsoe is gonna get a call from one of these teams…..Power Rankings, Week 7:
1. New England… running up the score like it was college football
2. Indianapolis…. 2 more weeks to take the top spot….
3. Tennessee… KERRY COLLINS TO ROB BIRONAS (man what a mess the NFL is indeed!)
4. Kansas City…Herm-a-mania LIVES brotha!
5. Denver… well I was gonna put SD or Cleveland ahead… but ahh… I dunno.. the AFC is only the top 2 anyway….
1. Dallas… you’re still the onneeeee
2. NY Giants… still rolling until they are shown otherwise… I guess….
3. Washington… pulled one out their ass.. but have been owed TWO since the losses to the Giants and Packers…
4. Detroit… quality win at home…
5. Seattle… still shining the sh!t but playing messier sh!t at the moment!
