Pack takes it out on the Vikes
The way Minne's been playing lately, that doesn't seem very far-fetched... There have been some stupid games lately and it's really starting to piss me off.
Colts 41 Bills 10. Delay of game is called on the Colts early in the fourth when a bewildered Jim Sorgi has to return to locker-room to change from his street clothes, not realizing that he might actually get a few snaps this year.
Other big games:
Giants > Bears
San Diego > Cincy
Hopefully Houston can lock up the AFC South for the Colts with a second victory over the Jags.
browns almost win, again. but lose. same old. same old.
I'm actually taking the giants too.. bears have played weak teams pretty well the whole year, and the Giants D has been on fire lately
Well, Gard and I can not be on friendly speaking terms this week. Much like the Florida/LSU week.
Pittsburgh is going to snap out of this, and it is going to be at home. Sorry Saints fans, but the Steelers will send Reggie Bush and the boys home with from Heinz Field with a loss.
...and he actually comes in at 34-0 in the 3rd and throws a TD to make it 41-0 at the beginning of the 4th.
That would be nice but I doubt it this time around. The Jags know they are in the hunt for a wildcard spot and can't afford to drop one to the Texans. They still have some tough games with Indy, NYG, NE, and KC to play this season.
The dreaded 5 point TD. I didn't realize Dungy had taken that play with him when he left Tampa.
DOH! My math is a little off this morning. I think it's time for a nap!
I'll let poor Mike have his delusion...but it all comes crashing down at 4:15 eastern time on November 12th...
(These Saints are for real, folks.)
I don't think they are Gard. I think they are just setting the entire nation up only to pop that balloon in the Playoffs.
A quality coach, a true "leader type" QB, two world-class running backs, and offensive line that is playing great football, two all-star quality recievers, and solid defensive play...this ain't the old "aints", don't think they'll go all the way, but I think they have a genuine shot at it.
And a winning record against teams with .500 and under records. Course, that's not a stat I'd tout either.
Beat Cincy (outscore rather) and I might believe that they might be for real. They have enough gas to get to the Playoffs and die. Hell, at this point in the season half the teams that were "playoff bound" in preseason are floundering. Somebody had to win against those teams.
In all seriousness, they have had a great turnaround. Weren't they like 2-14 last year? From crap to Playoff contender is impressive. But I think they are too inexperienced with the whole winning thing to do much this year. Next year could be different.
I think this worked out well - the Bears, coming off of their embarassing defeat at the hands of the Fish will come back in full stride and lay the smack down against the Giants, shutting Tiki down early and establishing a strong passing game that emphasizes short to medium length passes while minimizing the "bombs" that Rexie likes to throw.
...that was a long sentence.
I wouldn't call Reggie Bush and his 518 yards of total offense and zero TD's "world class". He will be good, but let's keep it real for now buddy.
Joe Horn is on the downside of his career. While he was very good a few years ago, he won't be making any more Pro Bowls.
The Steelers keep playing the way they have been, they'll make Bush & Horn look like both World Class & Pro Bowlers.
Oh, and Bush does have a touchdown, you need to get the facts straight.
(Not an offensive one, but nonetheless a score! )
I was going strictly off his offensive numbers. I thought he was no longer returning kicks and punts. My bad. In that case, your "world class" RB has one TD this year playing a position he was not drafted for.
Joe Horn will pop one of these weeks for a big game. He's good for a couple a year. I'm just hoping it is next week.
Drew Brees has been pretty hot lately, while PIT's pass D isn't looking very sharp. They let a conservative DEN passing offense go nuts last night. Made Jake Plummer look like Peyton Manning. Something in PIT isn't right.
Should make for an interesting game. A team on the ups vs a team trying to reverse their fortunes.
I hope the Falcons bounce back vs. the Browns. They have bounced back the other three times they lost.
i'm picking the bears 31-28; and with all this talk of the saints roster, i'm picking colston as rookie of the year. he would be getting infinitely more attention if he weren't on the same team as bush- who i think is going to be a slightly better version of napoleon kaufman .
