In fact this may be the best weekend of football to date!!! :dance:

Sunday November 4:
49ers at Falcons:
What to look for:
Holy hell.. a game the Falcons should be FAVORED in… this game is so totally unwatchable in any way shape for or theory… I can give you no good reason to observe this contest! (Quality *)

Bengals at Bills:
Now you start to see why Buffalo fans are deluding themselves about a .500 season!!
They’re in a Rutgers-Level of Cream-Puff schedule now! Another winnable game for them as long as JP Losman just keeps chucking ducks high and far that Lee Evans can run under and get to the house with… and the Bengals have no heart and LESS defense… I can see this happening… again… Marvin Lewis better get ready to start flipping burgers! (quality *)

Broncos at Lions:
What to look for:
Interesting matchup here… Denver has an ok pass defense D but is Cottonelle Toilet Paper soft on the run… and the Lions are a pass first second AND third team (trhough they did get 100 yards from Jones last week)… I don’t like the Broncos at home… but maybe a game away from the Rockies fallout is what they need?? I don’t know… I can’t see it;;; Shanahan rolled the dice on Travis Henry and Jay Cutler and came up as a double botch! (Quality **)

Packers at Chiefs:
Damn this is going to be a GOOD week of football!!! This is a big time matchup… Green Bay who comes off the Mile High Miracle who can’t run the ball at all.. against a team that does nothing but… fascinating little match up… both teams have good defenses and are playing better then they should be now… gonna be tough for the Packers to win in the two toughest venues in the league in back to back week though…. But I can’t see the Chiefs at 5-3 either… good thing I don’t do predictions here :P (Quality ** ˝)

Chargers at Vikings:
What to look for:
Man if you thought the Texans game was ugly… just wait for this one… the Vikings might be down to Brooks Bollinger at QB and San Dieego is just beating up on people with the running game and a surging defense… this could get ugly fast and all I can hope and pray for is a lot of Adrian Peterson receiving yards in garbage time… this one will be ugly! (Quality ** ˝ but could ge ugly FAST)

Jaguars at Saints:
What to look for:
The Saints are on a roll but still kinda soft if you ask me (and you are or you’d not be reading :P)… and the Jaguars love to punch you in the face until you bleed…. That’s not something the Saints are all too good at preventing and it will be interesting to see how the Saints bounce back from an ugly loss like this (Quality **)
Redskins at Jets:
What to look for:
Clemens vs Campbell.. OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS… oh wait… wrong Clemens!! The Redskins have yet to throw a TD to a wide receiver this year… knowing the Jets, this would be the week Santanna Moss gives them a sick 200 yard 3 TD homecoming! I can’t see the Jets winning this game after the pounding the Skins took last week and now they want some from the Belichicken disciple! (Quality **)

Cardinals at Tampa:
What to look for:
Umm… not much… the team with no QB vs the team with no RB? This game may not be a lot of fun to watch at all…. Neither one of these teams are really good… and BOTH are pushing for division titles (the more the year rolls on… if you ain’t in the NFC East, you don’t belong in the NFL in the NFC.. well except for Green Bay and I am still not sold on them) (Quality * ˝)

Panthers at Titans:
What to look for:
Carolina did just get CREAMED all over the place by fellow AFC South team, and the scary part is how easily the Colts ran the ball all over them… and now they play a team that does that 100 times better in the Titans….Carolina’s a mess all over the place and the defense and offense are just not good… while the Titans seem to be running downhill (no pun)… I see a similar type beating here today.. (Quality **)

4pm:
Seattle at Cleveland:
What to look for:
This could be a fun game… then again all Browns games are sun games now (if they are gonna ruin our top 5 pick from Brady Quinn by golly I will enjoy ALL their games!!), I don’t have much faith in Seattle … they too have not been good and it looks like the end is neigh for Shaun Alexander too, while Cleveland seems to be just loving life… home field helps too here…. Should be a fun watch if the Mini-Super Bowl is a blowout! (Quality ***)

Houston at Oakland:
What to look for:
I’m not really sure here… the Texans are piling up injuries after that awesome GORE GORE GORE (and no I don’t mean Frank… this was a useful gore!!) Matt Schuab took last week… Sage Rosenfels is as serviceable a backup as you can have in the NFL now… the Raiders seem close to the bottom falling out on them now with the schedule getting rougher, if not downright MEAN, and they gotta win somewhere… this could be the place… this won’t be fun to watch unless someone gets socked again! (Quailty *)

Patriots at Colts:
What to look for:
What the hell am I gonna tell you that you don’t already know??? If New England beats them by 30 I will not bitch about running up the score… that only matters when you are so clearly superior to your opponent and they are helpless to stop you, this is not the case here as we ALL remember the AFC Title game last year and the Colts have the weapons to storm back in this one… funny how the power has shifted in this series, as being in Indy helps the fast moving through the air Pats and a murky sloppy run the ball field like New England would help the Colts more (in my opinion)… Juts let this please be a good game (and Adaai and Manning to get lots of points!)… (Quality ****)

8pm:
Dallas at Phily:
What to look for:
Ahh, nothing like America’s (and apparently England’s) Team back on PRIME TIME where they belong (well to be fair I like them better on late so I can enjoy the other games and not focus on one of the two teams I root for!)… Dallas bounced back nice with a thumping of the Vikings and Tony Romo thumping Britney in his off-time (for God’s Sake wrap that bad boy up TR!!)… and the Eagles are still just BAD more so on offense where it’s a one and half man show! I don’t see Phily having the weapons to keep up with the big boys of football, and this will be fun to watch just cause it’s Phily and you never know what the mutants will come up with!!! (Quality ***)

Monday Nov. 5:
Steelers at Ravens:
What to Look for:
Hell I might see more offense at the Devil game that night!! The Ravens are a horrific offensive team and that’s generous, while the Steelers are in cruise control to own the AFC North and I’ve seen nothing out of the Ravens this year to make me think otherwise… so I expect the Steelers to win easy, but you never know.,..Hell Just look at LAST Monday Night! I have to DV-R this cause I’ll be at the Devils game… so expect a late week in review too.. more so if this one is GOOD and I get into it !! (Quailty ***)

First off, the Ravens offense is one of the best in the league in terms of yardage. Its when we get in the redzone that we choke.

Even though these are two great defensive teams and an intense rivalry I would not be surprised to see a 30-28 final score on Monday night.

Everyone is picking the Pats but the Colts can do something they can't: Run the ball. And that's how they'll beat the Pats. By controlling the game on the ground with Addai.

How is the Eagles-Cowboys a 3?

The Eagles who have been up and down all year? If they played the Giants, it'd get half a star. LOL


Crasher, if Dallas loses that, they should be ashamed. :evil:

Phily always plays Dallas tough, just fact of life
and well I need to hype the game to help jack up ratings!

and McNabb and Westbrook can win games by themself... they have 3 times already :P

leave me to my anti-Clown paranoia of thinking of ways my team can lose while he gets high on LA Smog and thinks his team is average!!! :lol:

I'd give Phily/Giants ** 1/2 IF Westbrook had been healthy

no Westbrook and that's a DUD... Phily couldn't beat the Jets practice squad without him!

When the Giants played the Eagles, they played the Eagles wthout their one offensive star, and a couple defensive stars. A healthy eagles against a somewhat healthy Cowboys (missing Henry, and obviously Glenn) should be for a better game than when the Eagles played the G-Women.

I think that lived up to the hype of Superbowl 41.5. It was a great game.

The officiating was terrible, but the game itself was great.

I think the difference between the first half (when the Colts held time of possession) and the second half (when the Patriots had their big drives) was Freeney. In the first half he was able to get around the Patriots offensive line and get in Brady's face. Hell, that Addai TD just before half time was all Freeney:
Freeney had been getting to Brady.
He was about to sack him again, so the Patriot defender tripped him, causing a 15 yard penalty.
With 3rd and forever, Brady throws a pseudo-hail-mary (low percentage pass to the end zone) that gets picked off.
Off the turnover Addai gets the TD.

But in the second half, Freeny looked tired. He didn't have near the impact that he had in the first half and Brady was able to put on a show.

Oh well, Colts will just have to knock the Pats out of the playoffs with a heathy Harrison.

Refs sucked, even if they did favor the Colts.

I knew we blew it when we got called for offensive penalties leading up to Pats getting the ball back with nine minutes. Harrison playing would've made so much of a difference in this game.

That had to be the worst officiated game I have ever seen. Aside from that it lived up to all the hype and it went down to the last 5 minutes. It was a tale of 2 entirely different games with both teams showing off their best. Positive for the Patriots is that this might secure them home field advantage for the next matchup. Considering Manning is constantly changing plays and pointing things out probaby more then any quarterback in the leage a rocking Gillette statium should make it tough on him. All in all a great game by 2 great teams and it could have gone either way.
