    OK, trying to stay optimistic. Can we say Reggie Bush? Packer's "D" rebounds.

    Pack > Eagles

    The Bears have a few rough games coming up with Pittsburgh, Tampa, and Atlanta. I don't know about the Steelers, but I think the Bears can take Tampa and Hotlanta.

    Therefore, in Week 12...

    Bears > Bucs

    In the "Toilet Bowl" game of the week:

    Saints > J E T S Jets Jets Jets

    (Hey, they gotta beat SOMEONE...:bawl: )

    ...the way I figure it, the Saints will play just well enough to lose Reggie Bush in the draft...

  6. I'll be a homer and take the Steelers to hand the Colts their first loss, provided Ben plays, of course. With Big Ben healthy and behind center, the Steelers are capable of moving the ball on anyone.

    If for some ungodly reason Maddox has to start again, I take my pick back, though. Lordy, he's terrible.
  7. I haven't seen many if any Jet fans on this board, though with our QB problems I'm not horribly surprised.

    Yeah, I'd be surprised if the Jet's record gets much better this season, and barring some ridiculous defensive plays (our defense hasn't been much to shout about this year either), I can't see us beating the Saints.

    Here's to Reggie Bush finding his way to the Jets!!! (A man can hope)

    I hope so, but I dunno Mr PG. I think last night was an INCREDIBLY demoralizing loss. I know it was for me!
  9. I went to bed somewhere around halftime. But then again I've got a hella cold.

    A 3 point loss with Steelers having Maddox at QB. They are lucky that it wasn't a loss by a few touchdowns. The Immaculate Interception played it's part in helping the Birdies.

    I look at wins like that as a barely a win. More in the hands of coach's strategy and effective time burning strategy. Not a undeniable statement like Denver beating the Jets 27-0. Now if the Ravens had came and rocked the Squeelers' block, yeah, I could see how those facts could apply.

    I'm a Colts fan and I don't think Monday is going to be a cakewalk if Roethlesberger the handoff king plays. But, I think if they continue playing good, smart football (the way they have been) that they will win. If Maddox plays... it'll be a massacre to the Nth degree.

  12. If Big Ben plays then that'll be a beer spiller of a game. Honestly I think the best team the Colts have played so far was the Bengals and that was a good game. Now that the pressure's being upped I don't think that streak will last much longer. But Like you said, if Maddox plays then the streak will go on till Seattle or Denver.

    I think the Colts probably have the best shot I've seen since 72, in matching the 72 Phins. The 98 Queens were chokers, that was proven in the playoffs, the Steelers of last year, although very good, perhaps had a bit better record than they actually were. The Colts seem to have it all. The Colts schedule IS NOT a cake walk the rest of the way though. They have SEVERAL tough games.
    I DO think the Colts will beat Pittsburgh though.

    Heh...I had to read this twice to realize that Mexico was the Falcons... :D
  16. I'm a HUGE Pittsburgh fan, and I agree their record was definitely better than their team last year! Oh well.

    I watched pieces of the Colts game on Sunday. My god, they move the ball at WILL! It's almost too fluid to be called football! I'd SO love the Steelers to hand the Colts their first loss, this year, but dollars to donuts says it ain't gonna happen!

    On a side note, I've been a Packers fan/non-fan. Just indifferent. Watching the last few games, after Favre's bleak performances, it looks like he's going to cry when he's on the sidelines. I feel bad for him. He is historically a phenom QB. Too bad he's not gonna go out on top.

    Granted as long as it's not on top of PITTSBURGH! lol

    Favre has had no chance at all this year to go out on top. Between the organization not surrounding him with enough talent, and injuries to EVERY SINGLE PLAYMAKER on the offense (besides Donald Driver), there is just no way to get a bunch of wins.

    It actually does give me a bit of hope that he may come back next year though. The Packers, when healthy, are not far from being a good team. Next year (man...I haven't had to talk about "next year" in November for a LONG time!), with the return of a healthy Javon Walker, Ahman Green (maybe), Robert Ferguson, a high draft pick, either at RB or the defensive line, some more experience at guard, they could certainly contend for the North again.
  18. Hey.... I like Favre! Not slandering him. :D

    The Dallas Cowboys face a very big test this week. This will complete a stretch of 3 games in 11 days. Quite a task for any organization. The Dallas Football Cowboys are 7-3, having to face the Browncos, Giants, Chefs (great googly moogly), Panthers, Redskins, and Rams. If Dallas can go 4-2, (or 3-3 as long as two of those wins are against the Giants and Rams), they are in a great great position.
