Inzwischen weiß jeder über die neuesten Köpfe verdrehen Akquisition in der NFL. Keine Damen und Herren, wir nicht über Michael Vick sprechen. Dies ist die Rückkehr der Rückkehr von Mr. Brett Favre. Ich habe einen Blick auf die Vikings Zeitplan, die mir viel vor nicht interessierte der großen Pickup. Aber lassen Sie uns einen Blick alle zusammen jetzt, dass Favre hat den Club beigetreten.
Die ersten fünf Spielen sollte eine 5-0 Start zu erzeugen; in Cleveland, in Detroit, zuhause gegen den Wiederaufbau von San Francisco, der Heimat gegen defensiv kämpfen, Green Bay, und an den unfähigen St. Louis Rams.
Die nächsten drei Spiele sind hart; Hause gegen Baltimore, in Pittsburgh, nach Hause in Green Bay. Ich würde sagen, die Pittsburgh-Spiel ist ein Verlust. Die eine gegen Green Bay könnte eine Schießerei auf Basis reiner Emotion, die allein in beide Richtungen gehen könnten. Das Spiel gegen die Ravens Zahlen hartgesottenen zu sein, und ich werde die Vikes den Rand in diesem einen zu Hause zu sein, um sie zu 6-2 auf halbem Weg bringen zu geben.
Danach bekommen sie zum Ausruhen für eine Woche, bevor sie die Lions Gesicht wieder zu Hause, dann inkonsistent Seattle zu Hause, und Chicago, die defensive und breit Empfangs woes auch zu Hause hat. Ich denke, alle drei sind Gewinne bringen sie zu 9-2.
Der letzte Abschnitt ist, wo es hart auf hart kommt; in Arizona, ein Trap-Spiel wie Matchup gegen Cincinnati zu Hause, in Carolina, in Chicago, die in der Abteilung Rennen in dieser Zeit sein können, und zu Hause gegen die New York Giants, die in Playoff-oder NFC East Titel Behauptung als auch sein könnte.
Wenn die Wikinger sich als Feststoff sein, sollten sie ein oder zwei von diesen letzten fünf Spiele gewinnen. Wenn sie in einem tollen Team zu formen, dann 12-13 Siegen sollte am Horizont. Favre kann 40 Jahre alt sein und haben Zeichen des Verfalls im letzten Halbjahr des Vorjahres gezeigt, aber in Minnesota er hat eine nachgewiesene tiefe Bedrohung in Bernard Berrian und eine Put-the-Team-on-my-zurück rusher in Adrian Peterson zusammen mit Starter-worthy Chester Taylor.
Dieses Team ist viel mehr offensiv ausgewogene und stärker defensiv als die Jets waren im vergangenen Jahr und das sollte der Unterschied in der, wie gut Favre spielt über einen anderen 16-Spiel Ausdehnung sein.
Wenn Sie ein Fußball müssen fix Besuche NFL Network. Mit Comcast Cable Unternehmen ist es nur rund 7,00 $ und Veränderung. Ich versuche nicht, um für ein anderes Unternehmen zu fördern, Ich versuche nur, damit die Menschen, die Fußball Köpfe sind über ein großartiger Ort, wo sie einen Fix bekommen kann wissen, und das ist NFL-Netzwerk, wenn sie wiederzugeben gesamte Fußballspielen, in der Regel, dass Matchups hatte große Oberflächen oder gut waren meist durch alle vier Quartale.
Aber das ist nicht der beste Teil. Sie zeigen die Spiele ohne die Pausen zwischen den Stücken, so dass sie schneller gehen. Wenn sie zeigte dir alte Sendungen in ihrer Gesamtheit, dann konnte ich sehen, dass auf jeden Fall ein Problem. Und für diejenigen von euch denken, dass eine zusätzliche $ 7.00 + einen Monat ist zu viel, um für einen weiteren Kanal zu stellen, bitte beachten Sie, dass der Preis eines ganzen Sportpaket, Rennsport, Fechten, (eine ganze Reihe von anderen Mist), aber wahrscheinlich beinhaltet vor allem die NBA-TV-Kanal.
Vergessen Sie nicht, dass dieser Kanal ist für den regulären und nach Jahreszeiten und Sie können noch in jeder Zeit des Tages, wenn Sie nicht mit dem Converge von Sports Center zufrieden sind.
Er Ravens hatte hinter seinem Rücken den ganzen Weg in Baltimore. Nun wollen wir sehen, wie lange er steht vor einigen Jets ... und wenn wir können sogar sehen, diese Jets hinter ihm.
Das Rex Ryan ist sicherlich macht sich einen Namen mit einem zuversichtlichen und frech Mund. Bis jetzt ist der große Mann ist für zwei Vorkommen von verbalen Bekanntheit und virtuelle sonst nichts an seinem Ruf als Baltimore Ravens 'Defensive Coordinator festgestellt.
Die erste kam, als er auf einer Radio-Show interviewt und wurde etwa mit Blick auf New England Patriots-Cheftrainer Bill Belichick zweimal jährlich befragt. Er erklärte, mehr oder weniger "Ich bin nicht hierher gekommen, um Bill Belichick Ringe küssen". Lassen Sie mich zu analysieren. Die meisten Menschen Belichick geben würde seine ordnungsgemäße Gebühren und erklären, dass sie auf jeden Fall darauf abzielen, Wettbewerb / herausfordern ihre Rivalen. , Kommt er jedoch und macht eine Aussage, ähnlich wie der 1930er Jahre Ära bootlegger könnte man sagen.
Das zweite Problem war seine Kommentare über Miami Dolphins ab Mitte Linebacker Channing Crowder hier, als er behauptete, noch nie von ihm gehört. Crowder sicherlich reagierte mit Wahrheit. Er sagte, dass Ryan ist ein "OTA Super Bowl Gewinner", wie er in der Nebensaison hat und dass, wenn er wirklich seine Hausaufgaben, dass er weiß, wer die Miami Dolphins ab Mitte Linebacker war.
Nun, ich bin ziemlich sicher, dass Ryan ihn kennen. Ich sage nicht, dass ein Mann im Gespräch wie dieses im Freien ist nicht interessant. Aber ich sage, dass, wenn seine Mannschaft nicht am Ende der Suche respektabel, auch in diesem Jahr, er könnte wie eine echte douche bag aussehen. Wenn er endet mit einer kurzen Leben in New York, dann wird er wirklich wie ein Idiot aussehen. Er könnte der nächste Mike Tice sein; große, stämmige, dicke Backen, denkt, er ist ein Verbrecher, hat den Respekt seiner Mannschaft, aber nicht einen Mucks zu gewinnen.
1. Tom Brady - Sie können zu dieser Verletzung alles, was Sie wollen, zu denken, aber wenn Sie Faktor, dass eine 100% Tom Brady warf für 50 TDs und über 4.800 Meter mit nur 8 INTs, dann ist die Mobilität behindert Version von Brady kann 5 bis leisten 10 weniger TDs und vielleicht 600 oder so weniger Meter. Vergessen Sie nicht, Aufnahmekern seines Teams wurde von Joey Galloway gestärkt worden.
2. Drew Brees - Es ist nicht gewinnt, die in diesem Spiel ... es ist Zahlen zu zählen. Während seiner dreijährigen Amtszeit in New Orleans, und wegen der mangelnden Produktion in der Heiligen laufenden Spiel, hat Drew Brees 4,400+, 4,400+ und 5.000 Meter, mit 26, 28, und 34 TDs alle auf. Was er verliert in einer potenziell hohen INT Rate (11, 18 und 17 auch jeweils), macht er sich für durch Mittelung 289,79 Yards pro Spiel und nur nachdem verpasste ein Start in den letzten fünf Jahren (keine in New Orleans).
3. Kurt Warner - Nach einem vollen Jahr als die Kardinäle unbestrittene Vorspeise, kehrte er in seine genaue Vergangenheit bei einer Abschlussquote 67,1%, sammelte 4583 Yards (gut für 286,44 ein Spiel), und eine kühle 30 TDs gegen eine nach oben und unten 14 INT. Und wie Brees, es ist nicht, wie viele Siege du in diesem Spiel zu bekommen ... es ist die Zahl. Nun, da Larry Fitzgerald hat sich das LeBron James von seiner Position nach seinem Postsaisonspiel, sollte Kurt Warner in für ein anderes großes Jahr. Einige von euch können sich Gedanken über den möglichen Verlust von Anquan Boldin, aber denken Sie daran, seine Spielzeit war sehr begrenzt in den Playoffs, und Fitzgerald und Steve Breaston sicherlich produziert.
4. Peyton Manning - Es mag überraschen, dass Peyton Manning ist die Nummer vier auf meiner Liste zu kommen. Er ist immer noch gut für einen reibungslosen 3,800-4,100 Meter in dieser Saison und einen riesigen hohen 20er bis niedrigen 30er Jahre in TD-Nummern. Allerdings ist er nicht in der Nähe der Yards pro Spiel Potential wie die zuvor genannten QBs wie sein Team Verteidigung ist auf jeden Fall über Brees 'und Warner haben, und besser als Brady als gut.
5. Philip Rivers - Philip Rivers zeigte im Jahr 2008, dass er eine große Zahl Kerl zu sein. Er beendete mit 4.009 Yards und eine Karriere hoch 34 TDs. Es wäre nicht ein Stück zu seinem Potenzial Konsistenz in Frage zu stellen aufgrund seiner 2006 und 2007 Jahreszeiten. In jenen Jahren warf er für 3,300+ und 3,100+ Meter, mit 22 und 15 TDs, alle sind. Doch letzten Saison haben wir begonnen, große Zeichen der Abnutzung auf LaDainian Tomlinson, das ist wahrscheinlich ein wichtiger Grund, warum seine Zahlen stieg im vergangenen Jahr im Vergleich zu den beiden vorangegangenen sehen. So in dieser Hinsicht wäre es nicht ein Stück sein, als auch um zu sehen, ihn mit einer großen Fantasy-Art Saison in diesem Jahr wieder.
Ich hasse, wie die NFL und die Lions versuchen Super über das neue Logo zu ändern geheim sein. Vertrauen Sie mir NFL das wird nicht für jeden zu begeistern. Das Team ging 0-16 der letzten Saison und anstatt ein neues Logo diese Fans verdient ein neues Team mit echten Spielern und Trainern. Es ist ein bisschen dumm oder so, dieses Team wird sich in diesem Jahr, neues Logo stinken oder nicht, spielt es keine Rolle, sie sind eine zweite Rate NFL Organisation und das ist nicht in absehbarer Zeit zu ändern. Die Lions sind nicht die Bucs oder Patriots aus der Vergangenheit. Sie werden nicht, ihr Logo zu ändern und starten Sie dann wettbewerbsfähig, vertrauen Sie mir. Diese beiden Teams hatten gute O und D-Linien, während die Löwen nicht! Nun, da der NFL ist nicht zu diesen neuen Logo, bis näher an die Saison zu enthüllen, ich will nur ihren Spaß verderben und Post die neuen Logo Konzepte sowieso. Saugen Sie auf dieses Detroit und genießen Sie Ihre neue Pussy Cat-Logos!
Nicht, dass viel von einem Unterschied!
Die New Thundercats-Bus! Thundercats Hoooooe!
Ein weiteres mögliches Design, aber ich bezweifle es!
Ehrlich gesagt, wenn Sie noch nicht davon gehört haben, ist es, weil es sich um weniger bekannte NFL-Spieler. Und doch bin ich in den nächsten paar Wochen wird es große Neuigkeiten sicherstellen. An diesem Samstag Nacht Ted Ginn Jr. gehostet, was zu seiner Geburtstagsfeier in einem Nachtclub in Cleveland sein.
Ted Ginn Jr. auf der rechten Seite war ganz die Strecke Sterne in der High School!
Das ist nichts Ungewöhnliches, da die Miami WR war geboren und in Ohio erhobenen rechten außerhalb von Cleveland, und er hat viele Freunde in der Gegend. Nun, hier ist die saftigen Teil. Ted ist immer noch Freunde mit viel seiner Highschool-Football Freunde, die er spielte mit Glenville Hoch. Einige Spieler in dieser Gruppe waren und sind NFL-Spieler, darunter Donte Whitner Sicherheit für die Buffalo Bills.
Donte Whitner war auch Teamkollegen mit Ted Ginn Jr. bei OSU
Nun, ich habe kein Problem mit dieser Geschichte bis zu diesem Punkt. Es ist nichts falsch mit ein Spieler hanging out in der Nähe seiner Heimatstadt mit seinem alten Schulkameraden, aber Sie brauchen, um die, wo und wann zu realisieren. NFL-Spieler in einem Nachtclub, spät in der Nacht ist eine Gleichung, die fragen, ist für eine Katastrophe. Hat jemand etwas gelernt, bilden die tragischen Ereignisse über letzten 3 Jahren? Ich meine, wirklich unter Berücksichtigung aller Schießereien und Kämpfe moronic sollten die Spieler jetzt, dass überall Sie gehen Sie wahrscheinlich von einem wahren hater gezielt werden. Jemand, der zu werfen oder rauben Sie nur sagen, sie taten es, um eine Berühmtheit will! Also zurück zu der Geschichte, Donte Whitner an der Party in der Umgebung von 3.00 hatte sich in einer Auseinandersetzung mit jemand im Club bekommen, und eine ziemlich große Schlägerei ausgebrochen war. Off Duty Polizisten, die im Club waren, versuchten, Whitner verlangsamen, dann Whitner beschlossen, sie ab zu schieben und weiter kämpfen, das ist, wo die Geschichte beginnt wirklich schlecht zu bekommen. Bald, diensthabende Polizeibeamte am Tatort ankommen und was bedeutet Donte tun? Er versucht, Platz weg mit ihnen, und dabei wird tazered! Das ist nur mit Hochdruck daran dumm. Ted Ginn Jr. ersten sollte es besser wissen müssen, als seine Partei bei einer öffentlichen Club. Aber wenn Sie auf tun möchten, sollten Ginn sorgte dafür, dass die Partei in einem privaten Raum, die es hat ruhig haben eine eigene Bar , separatem Eingang und natürlich Sicherheit.
Darrent Williams Tod sollte eine Erinnerung daran, dass die Menschen gezielt Spieler, spät in der Nacht in der Nähe von oder in Clubs.
Die Spieler müssen intelligenter als diese zu sein, sind Sie nicht ein normaler Mensch, und Sie ein Ziel für den Idioten Hasser, die zu prahlen, dass sie verprügelt, ausgeraubt oder getötet ein NFL-Spieler wollen. Donte Whitner bekommt keine Sympathie von mir, zumal er versuchte, Quadrat oben und "kämpfen einen Polizisten". Das ist einfach nur dumm. Er hat nicht nur machte sich lächerlich, aber er macht es für die Liga, die kämpfen, die Idee, dass viele es Spieler sind Verbrecher hat 10 Mal härter. Wir haben alle gehört, die Themen rund Pacman, Kampfpanzer, Ray Lewis, Jamal Lewis und die vielen anderen, die rechtlichen Fragen in den letzten 20 Jahren gehabt haben. Die NFL sollte anfangen, mehr Eigeninitiative zu diesem Problem. Wenn Sie wie ein Ruck in der Gesellschaft zu handeln, als Sie haben, die kein Unternehmen von der NFL eingesetzt.
Roger Goodell es Zeit ist streng zu sein und das Spiel zu schützen und speichern Sie die Spieler! Das Richtige zu tun.
Aktionen wie diese sollten nicht mit der NFL in Verbindung gebracht werden, aber leider reicht sie durch Spieler wie diese sind. Ich persönlich glaube, dass Donte Whitner sollte ohne Zweifel von der NFL aufgehängt werden. Aktionen wie diese sind nicht akzeptabel ist, und andere Vorgehensweise würde nur ein Klaps auf die Hand sein. NFL-Spieler kann nicht so handeln, nicht für der Kinder willen, und nicht für die Lüfter willen, sondern zum Wohle des Spiels. Donte Whitner Teamkollege Marshawn Lynch war der Fahrer in einem hit-and-run Vorfall im letzten Sommer kam aber mit nur einer Strafzettel. Diese Art von Verhalten muss, um am Ende, vor allem aus der Buffalo Bills-Player. Diese Spieler müssen zur Rechenschaft wie jeder andere auch gemacht werden. Ich weiß, dass die Spieler durcheinander, sondern kommen auf den Menschen! Wer nicht! Wenn Sie nicht von Dante Whitner bis jetzt gehört haben, bin ich sicher, Sie werden nicht vergessen, seinen Namen. Moronic Aktionen kann manchmal Funke eine Spieler Popularität und das ist nur schrecklicher Gedanke. Wir sind immer auf der Suche nach dem Spieler, den wir beheben können, und ich denke, das ist nur dumm, weil wir die Zucht und Förderung dieser Art von Verhalten. Ich bin krank von Nachrichten wie diese. Die Spieler haben ein enormes Geschenk und es ist nichts weniger als ein Abfall, so zu Verschmutzungen den guten Namen der Menschen, die nicht nur, bevor Sie kommen, sondern auch, nachdem Sie zu handeln.
Hören Donte Whitner, was ich zu sagen habe!
Abschließend möchte ich nur eine Sache für alle NFL-Spieler, sagen Sie "nach 01.00 Uhr draußen bleiben und weg von der CLUBS!" Nehmen Sie einfach ein wirklich schönes Ferienhaus oder so!
Robert Thomas, der neue Co-Star der NFC East Reading Rainbow!
Nun, es ist gut zu sehen, die Redskins versuchen, das Monster, das er in Marcus Washington erstellt zu beheben, indem ihm und ließ ihn an anderer verletzt und auf jemand anderes Gehaltsscheck. Aber sie haben eine ziemlich große Fehler gemacht, wenn sie glauben, dass Robert Thomas wird sich Marcus Schuhe zu füllen. Thomas hat nie wirklich erfolgreich überall er jemals in der NFL gewesen. Robert Thomas wurde in der ersten Runde von den Rams entworfen, in der Hoffnung, er London Fletcher in 2002. Dieser Plan im Sande verlaufen, als Robert Thomas posted nur 36 Tackles beim Spielen in 16 Spielen mit dem Rams.One Ram Fan ich weiß, sagte ersetzen könnte " dass er einer der bekanntesten 1.Runde Büsten "in der 2002 Entwürfe war. Dann werden die Rams verpfändet Robert Thomas off nach Green Bay in einem Handel fand Ende 2005 Robert dauerte nur 1 Saison mit den Packers und geschnitten wurde. Thomas stand auf von den Raiders für nur 2 Jahre, wie 36 Tackles und 62 Tackles abgeholt und spielte ok, Buchungsnummern. Dann Thomas habe ziemlich schlecht letzten Saison und verletzte booom jetzt ist er auf den Redskins !! Das Beste an diesem Typ ist in seiner Karriere hat er 7 Jahre war nur völlig gesund für 2 von ihnen. Erwarten Anfang nächsten Jahres, dieser Kerl verletzt werden, ohne Zweifel. Er ist ein Spieler Verletzungen anfällig und Marcus Washington, dessen größtes Problem war, Verletzung, mit ihm ist einfach lachhaft ersetzen. Washington hat viel mehr auf den Kopf und damit eine höhere Preisvorstellung. Ich hoffe, dass sie glaube nicht, dass sie gehen, um Thomas zu starten, weil das nur dumm wäre. Dieser 29-jährige Verteidiger ist nicht die Antwort für Washington, und ich hoffe, dass sie es wissen. Ich hoffe wirklich, sie versuchen immer noch zu einem großen LB in den Entwurf zu bekommen, jemanden wie Gehirn Orakpo oder James Laurinaitis wäre toll! Erste ein LB früh würde sicherstellen, dass dieser Schritt würde die Redskins Tiefe, in LB zu erhöhen, zu verstehen, dass Thomas nicht zu erwarten, um für immer zu starten!
Matt Hasselbeck Karriere kann in den letzten Zügen liegen.
Die Seattle Seahawks kann suchen, um von Matt Hasselbeck loswerden oder zumindest testen, einen potenziellen Ersatz. Es gibt Gespräche rund um die Liga, dass die "Seevögel" wurden diese Betrachtung, und mit der Zahl vier Pick im diesjährigen Entwurf kann leicht passieren, dass.
Matt Hasselbeck ist bereits 33 Jahre alt, die auf jeden Fall gleich um die Zeit die meisten Quarterpunsch beginnt zu sauer ist. In der vergangenen Saison hat er nur in sieben Spielen gespielt, und obwohl er zu seiner Ehre verletzt, spielte er noch schrecklich und unzuverlässig, der seine beste Eigenschaft war. Seine Statistiken waren 57,8 Rating, fünf TDs, 10INTs und eine irrsinnig 52,2% Prozentsatz der Fertigstellung.
Ich verstehe es nicht. Wie Quarterbacks wie diese gehen von sehr gut bis schlecht? Es scheint, dass alle großen Quarterbacks haben die Dinge ins Rollen entlang reibungslos seit vielen Jahren in einer Reihe, und dann eine Saison, puh! Sie beginnen stinkin das Haus und warf Spiele weg, und es ist alles bergab.
Ich wirklich nicht bekommen, wie die Jungs können nicht genug Intelligenz und Erfahrung Veteran verlassen, um zumindest wettbewerbsfähig zu bleiben, aber es ist, was es ist, und immer auf zu schlagen muss wirklich seinen Tribut.
Heute wurde die Plaxico Burress Fall bis zum späteren Zeitpunkt der 15. Juni beschwor. Viele Leute waren skeptisch weither dies geschehen würde oder nicht, aber es kann ein Zeichen, dass seine hochpreisigen Rechtsabteilung kann in der Nähe eines Plädoyer Deal, die ihm erlauben, in der kommenden NFL-Saison spielen wird, sein. Unabhängig davon, wie es scheint, als ob Plaxico muss eine Art von Gefängnis zu tun, aber die Frage ist, wann. Soweit ich mich erinnere Jamal Lewis verbrachte seine Off-Jahreszeiten im Gefängnis, ein paar Jahre zurück durch den Drogenhandel Gebühren, und vielleicht ist es auch möglich, wir könnten etwas Ähnliches für die Giants-Superstar Weit zu sehen. Es ist keine Frage, dass Plaxico will nicht, dass zu jeder Zeit im Gefängnis verbringen. Und doch scheint es immer deutlicher, dass es hart werden für Plax, um aus dem großen Haus zu bleiben. New York Stadt Pistolen Gesetze sind ein bisschen über Bord und sind scheinbar für verfassungswidrig, so dass dies ein sehr interessanter Fall ist, ohne Zweifel, wenn es überhaupt macht es vor Gericht. Die Sportsroids.com Team wird unterstützt Plaxico am 15. Juni in New York City Strafgericht von Streikposten die Studie! Also, wenn Sie, um den Superbowl champion Giants breiten out zu unterstützen, von der debilen liberale Stadtverwaltung, die in den Knast wünscht ihm vor allem wegen seiner Berühmtheit möchten, bitte zeigen, bis! Plaxico, verletzt niemanden außer sich selbst, und er wird jetzt Grundfreiheiten, die Thomas Jefferson, einer unserer Gründerväter, inbrünstig in. Jefferson glaubte, erklärte seinen starken Überzeugungen im Recht, Waffen zu tragen consitently verweigert. Ein Beispiel für diese Tatsache ist, auf Seite 334 seines berühmten Thomas Jefferson Papers, als er schrieb: "Keine freien Mann wird überhaupt der Waffe ausgeschlossen werden. Der stärkste Grund, damit die Leute das Recht zu halten und Waffen tragen zu behalten ist, als letzter Ausweg, sich gegen Tyrannei in der Regierung zu schützen ". Erkenne, dass kein Bürger in New York City für eine conceal Genehmigung in der Hoffnung, dass die Menschen nicht versuchen, eins zu bekommen anzuwenden und erhalten ein Übertrag lisence ist ein sehr harter Prozess. Klingt ein bisschen unfair doens't es? Trotzdem glaube ich, dass die Städte Waffengesetze sind lächerlich, aus diesem Grund. Verbot von Waffen und macht sie schwerer zu Aquire rechtlich nur stärkt diejenigen, die sich nicht an die Regeln, ähnlich wie die Steroide Verbot im Sport. Diejenigen, die zu betrügen sind gewinnen, in das System. Diese Gesetze dienen nur zu helfen, Verbrecher bleiben finaiced und in die Macht über die gesetzestreue bevölkerungsreichste von New York City.
"Big Game" Torry Holt noch zu fangen. Warum wird jemand werfen Stellplätze auf ihn?
Die Nebensaison ist hier etwa zwei Monaten und nach Torry Holt wurde von den St. Louis Rams veröffentlicht zu acht Millionen Dollar von Kappenraum klar gewesen, und Marvin Harrison wurde nicht aufgrund seines Alters zurückgetreten, noch sind sie obdachlos. Ich denke, das ist eine große Überraschung, denn selbst wenn Holt, 32 und Harrison, 36, werden immer oben im Alter, in der Lage, ein Team aushelfen im großen Stil sind sie immer noch.
Dieser Kerl ist noch zu fangen! Schau dir das an!
Holts Summen in diesem Jahr waren 64 Fänge für 796 Yards. Aber das war mit 14 beginnt, und die vier Jahreszeiten vor, dass er 95,5 Fänge pro Saison gemittelt. Außerdem ist er mit Fehler-anfällig Marc Bulger spielt seit vielen Jahren immer noch in Aufmachungen diese Zahlen, und hatte eine Kompakt und jeder scheint bereit, ihn aufzugeben. In der Tat, das einzige Team, das Interesse ist die Jaguars, und das ist, weil sie Matt Jones, Reggie Williams und Jerry Porter freigegeben. Die Tatsache, dass nur ein NFL-Team interessiert sich für diesen Kerl, und nur, weil das Team ist hoffnungslos verwirrt mich nur.
Wie für Harrison hat er nicht so produktiv wie Holt waren die letzten beiden Spielzeiten mit 20 und 60 Fänge sind. Doch die Jahre hatte er 20 Fänge er spielte nur fünf Spiele, und obwohl im letzten Jahr wurde er großen Pässe fallen, vor allem in einem Spiel gegen Pittsburgh, schien er, die Dinge später in der Saison in Bezug auf die Tropfen bereinigen. Also ehrlich gesagt, für mich, in dieser Saison, in der er fünf Spiele gespielt sollten nicht einmal Faktor in welche Art von Fähigkeit könnte er gelassen. Plus den Ball fallen, hat nichts mit dem Alter zu tun, und er hatte schon immer sicher, dass die Hände. Wenn er groß Pässe fallen, bedeutet, dass er weiß noch, wie man für sie offen zu erhalten. Und wie zum Teufel ist da nicht einige saugen-Team wie die Bären oder Chiefs sah ihn an. Das überrascht mich auch.
Ich hoffe wirklich, jeder von ihnen wird auf ein Anwärter gelegt, und ich kann sie beide zu großen Besitz Empfängern, vor allem Holt sehen.
Ich frage mich, ob TO sieht jeder, wie er schon beunruhigend das Wasser in Buffalo, indem sie sich aus freiwilligen Training der Mannschaft, als er vor kurzem berichtet. Ich meine, es ist das erste echte offizielle Funktion, die von seinem neuen Team gehalten worden ist und er konnte bereits Haare sowie Fragen mit diesem Schritt zu erhöhen. Aber zu mir, lassen Sie den Kerl zu leben.
Zunächst einmal ist er schon 35 Jahre alt. Und im Ernst, wie groß ein Geschäft ist dies dumm mini drei oder vier Tagesarbeit aus? Es muss buchstäblich nur ein paar Gewichtheben Sitzungen, einige Standardanlage und drei feinen Mahlzeiten pro Tag sein. Ich denke, wenn ein 35 Jahre alter Mann, der im 14. Jahr seiner Karriere ist, sagt er will sich nicht auf die freiwillige Arbeit heraus, wen kümmert gehen. TO in der Liga, so lange jetzt, er weiß, wie sein Körper auf Stress reagiert, oder wenn zu wenig ist zu wenig, und er hat die Liga in TD geführt fängt in den letzten drei Jahren.
Ich würde nicht auf zu springen nur noch. Lassen Sie uns abwarten und sehen, ob er eine Seitenlinie Tirade oder spricht seine Gedanken ein wenig zu viel mit den Medien, bevor wir ihn zu züchtigen.
Und ernsthaft Leute ... die Rechnungen zu saugen. Sie haben keine Chance. Sie begann die Saison 4-0 und stotter trat er den Rest des Weges zu einer 3-9-Finish. Das ist nicht das Zeug zum Champion, und keiner ist Trent Edwards oder die bum-Hintern Buffalo Bills. Sie werden leicht durch Tom Bradys Patriots gefegt werden, und würde von vielen der letztjährigen Playoff-Teams zerstört.
Und wenn Sie mich fragen, würde ich vergleichen beobachtete die Bills hoffnungsvollen Run-orientierten Ansatz auf ein niedrigeres Niveau Online Madden Gamer versuchen, jemanden in den 20er Jahren zu schlagen.
Es ist wirklich einfach zu jedermann, wenn Sie eine 6'6 Spieler wie Plaxico Burress verlieren Sie besser glauben, dass Sie würden auf der Suche nach irgendeiner Art von hohen, schnellen Ball Drohung, ihn zu ersetzen. Die Giants sind ohne Zweifel Interesse bei der Untersuchung so glaube nicht, dass die Medien-Hype! Auch nicht überrascht sein, wenn Sie sehen, die Giants einen Handel über den Entwurf des Tages, wenn Plaxico wird am 31. März inhaftiert. Ich konnte sehen, die Gmen Handel ein Geschwader von WR ist, damit dieser Deal passieren. Das schließt Steve Smith, unabhängig von der Giants anders sagen. Mario Manningham ist definitiv ein Chip in diesem Abkommen und in Anbetracht seiner Studie Gewohnheiten die Giants würde ausgeschaltet werden so gut. Glauben Sie nicht, die Medien oder die Giants Vertreter bei der Erforschung dieser Geschichte wollen sie die ganze Sache sehr Still, still, bis künftige Plaxico ist komplett im Freien und beurteilt. Eric Mangini ist defensive gesinnten Coach, so wieder, seien Sie nicht überrascht, wenn sie einen Handel, der einer der Riesen Defensive Linemen gehören zu machen.
Braylon Edwards in Michigan
Auch ich hoffe, dass jeder weiß, dass es illegal ist für jedes Team Vertreter zu einem Spieler, die derzeit im Rahmen eines Vertrags mit einem anderen Team sprechen. So erkennen, dass Jerry Reese hat alle Vorwürfe der Medien bringt, ihn zu leugnen. Täuschen Sie sich nicht die Riesen versuchen, Braylon zu bekommen, aber die einzige wirkliche Frage ist, wie viel sind sie bereit sind, sich zu bewegen, um ihn zu bekommen?
Ich persönlich hasse die Art, die Löwen zu tun Geschäft in der NFL. Ich glaube, sie sind die schlimmsten geführte Organisation von Grund auf. Sie kauen durch Trainer und QB ist schneller als jedes andere Team in der NFL. Sie waren sogar dumm wäre genug, um zu handeln, als ob Kitna war ein Franchise-QB. Ich bin kein Trainer und sogar wusste ich, dass nicht funktionieren würde. Da die Lions ihre Beziehung zu Barry Sanders zerstört, haben sie nur großen Fehler nach dem großen Fehler in der NFL Draft gemacht. Allein der Gedanke, dass sie Joey Harrington abgeholt als Charles Rogers im nächsten Jahr mit dem 2. Gesamtauswahl macht mich krank zu meinem Magen. Sie haben zu viel auf Geschicklichkeit Positionen in diesem letzten Jahrzehnt Entwürfe konzentriert aber sie haben nie ihre Bedürfnisse angesprochen auf QB richtig.
Yep, das ist das Leben eines Lions-Fan
Die Lions brauchen eine Generalüberholung in der Offensive Line, noch in dieser Saison wird der Entwurf tief mit OL sein. Daher gibt es mehr Potenzial, eine große O-Lineman später in den Entwurf zu bekommen. Verstehen, dass der Tat kann sie versuchen, landen Cutler, durch den Handel nach unten die 1. Gesamtauswahl mit den Broncos. Sie werden immer noch in der Lage, eine große OT in der 12. Pick Auswahl landen. Wenn sie nicht handeln nach unten und nur den Handel der Wahl für Cutler ohne weitere Überlegungen die Löwen wäre immer noch eine 20. Pick in der ersten Runde, zu adressieren, was andere Bedenken, die sie durch den Entwurf beheben möchten. Wenn die Lions nicht blockieren Cutler durch den Handel nimmt, sind sie in meinen Augen einfach nur dumm, weil Cutler ist eine "bekannte" Franchise QB, dass Sie Ihr Team auf zu bauen. Er ist die eigentliche Behandlung und verfügt über die Erfahrung, es zu beweisen. Können Sie sagen, dass etwa jede andere QB in den Entwurf? Nr Sanchez hat eine Menge auf den Kopf und Stafford ist wirklich nicht kampferprobten, zumindest in der NFL. Jay Cutler könnte diese Rolle sofort zu füllen, und die Lions konnte ihn durch den Handel nach unten oder der Handel auf die Auswahl vollständig erhalten.
Jay Cutler könnte eine große Antwort für die Lions Probleme
Nehmen Sie die sichere Sache und gehen mit Cutler scheint ziemlich einfach zu mir, also nicht schrauben diese auf, Lions-Management !!
Seit der Inhaftierung von Michael Vick, mehrere Geschäfts wir einen neuen Hund kauen Spielzeug gefördert. Dieses Spielzeug ist eine, die hart genug, dass es bis zu stehen, die selbst den gamiest Pitts gebaut wird.
These toys are honestly hysterical. So, let your dog bite Vick back! I admit, I have never seen one of these toys in person but I am sure not going to wait to get my hands on one. These probably won't be available for long considering Vick is getting out of Jail soon. The reason I say this is because I feel that there is some sort of legal issues involved with this toy . We will all agree that a player is allowed to protect his own likeness, and I am pretty sure that Vick's people did not come up with this concept. So when he exits jail i would assume Vick will sue, so that he can recover the funds that they made unfairly using his likeness. So if you think they are funny make sure to pick them up NOW! Before they disappear from the market forever!
Jay Cutler could be making many fans of some other lucky team smile sometime soon.
Yesterday it was reported that the Pro Bowl Quarterback of the Denver Broncos, Jay Cutler, had officially requested a trade. Today, we the people, began contemplating where he might end up if his request is honored. I'm sure there are many fans out there whose team could use a guy in Jay Cutler who played like the potential franchise-type quarterback that many analysts foresaw. The scoop is that new head coach Josh McDaniels, who was offensive coordinator for the Patriots, wanted to trade Cutler for Matt Cassel since he was familiar with his system already. This has since angered the young Cutler and he now wants to go… but where?!
The Patriots are making more than a splash this year in the off season. Our Sportsroids sources have confirmed that this deal is very close to being completed. Peppers will probably play OLB in the Patriots system, so it will be a interesting change for Peppers. If the Patriots pull off this move they will be a very different team in 2010. They will receive an off season grade of A+ from me, since they signed Leigh Bodden, Julius Peppers,Joey Galloway, Shawn Springs and Fred Taylor. I expect them to win the division.
Jay Cutler hat sich für den Handel am 16 März 2009 aufgefordert
Das NFL Nachsaison hat eine Menge Höhen und Tiefen erlebt. Zwei NFL-Spieler wurden auf See verloren, Gesichter Plaxico Burress die Aussicht auf Jail Zeit hat, um von Amerikas Team Buffalo bewegt hat Donte Stallworth einen Fußgänger getötet. Das Komische ist, dass ich bin sicher, sie alle fühlen sich nicht als überfordert, wie die neue Bronco-Cheftrainer, Josh McDaniels, der von seinem wütenden Franchise QB lebendig verschlungen wird. Jay Cutler ist verärgert, und wir alle wissen, dass wir nicht in Denver glücklich sein. Vorstellung für den Handel, konnte nur eine Strom Schritt von Cutler, aber ich bezweifle, dass es wirklich. Er hat es nicht nötig, seine Gehaltsscheck zu zwingen up. Ich persönlich weiß, er muss verschoben werden. Er hat erklärt, er, der ein schlechtes Rezept für beide Jay und die Broncos ist "nicht sein Trainer vertrauen". Wenn sie das tun beschäftigen ihn scheint es, dass Tampa Bay und New York sind die beiden Orte, die ein großer fit sein scheinen. Die Jets sind in der Notwendigkeit einer QB, ich weiß, Clemens und Ratliff nicht in der Lage, um es getan sein. Sie machten bewegt sich Brett Farve zu sichern und die Trendwende war erstaunlich. Und da Brett im Ruhestand müssen sie bewegt, um in dieser Saison konkurrenzfähig zu machen. Ich bin sicher, Rex Ryan Ratliff versteht, dass es keine Trent Dilfer, und er wird sehen den Wert in Cutler, diese Nebensaison. Tampa Bay Buccaneers habe es nicht geheim gehalten, dass sie auf der Suche nach Garcia zu ersetzen, aufgrund seiner fortschreitenden Alter. Jeder war sich der versuchten drei Team Handel, Cassel nach Denver geschickt hätte, und Cutler nach Tampa, so dass sie ohne Zweifel sich für das Diabetische jungen Quarterback. Persönlich Cutler war noch nie ein Favorit von mir, und es wird interessant sein zu sehen, wie er ohne WR Marshall spielen. Ich glaube nicht, Tampa ist ein guter Ort für ihn, aber man weiß ja nie. Ich hoffe, dass Jay wird ein Jet im Jahr 2011. Ich hoffe, dass die Familie Johnson nicht schrauben dieses oben!
Komm Woody machen diesen Schritt !! Abholung Cutler
Die Sage von Plaxico Burress wurde von den Medien durch die Freisetzung von so vielen tollen WR ist, die Terrell Owens, Joey Galloway, Marvin Harrison, Laveranues Coles und TJ Houshmandzadeh sind in Vergessenheit geraten diese Vor-und Nachsaison. Die Plaxico Geschichte begann im vergangenen Jahr, als die New York Giants Veteran Superheld, Plaxico Burress, schoss sich in den Beinen beim partying zu einem beliebten New York City Club um den Mittelpunkt der letzten Jahre NFL-Saison. Außerhalb der Tatsache, dass er sich selbst erschossen, er hatte außerdem eine nicht registrierte Schusswaffe in der Stadt New York, ein Thema, Bürgermeister Bloomberg hat sich unnachgiebig Eindämmung.
Plaxico Burress auf X-mas
I feel as though Bloomberg had been waiting for a Black man to screw up given he could not jail Sean Combs for the Gun charges several years back. Bloomberg has changed the laws and now, conviently, a Black superstar is now in the line of fire to fall . Now Plax is at Bloomberg's mercy in addition to the NYC Courts. Both bodies are looking for an example, is Plaxico the perfect one? In any other state, this would be a misdemeanor offense which would have serious financial penalties and forced community service attached to it. Yet, in New York City, Plaxico is facing 3 to 15 years in jail. I hope people realize that is just stupid. Guns don't kill people, idiots with guns kill people. And since the New York State government thinks that their are too many idiots in New York, they find that gun bans and stiff penalties are the easiest way to deter criminals! Yet they forget to remember irreversable truth about murders and criminals is that THEY DON'T FOLLOW THE LAW! Yes Plaxico has put himself in a bad situation, and yes he really shot his team's chances of a repeat last year in the foot, but one thing Plaxico has not done is made anyone else a victim. Plaxico is not a criminal and should not be penalized as one. Yet all Bloomberg sees is a chance to show the New York public what he can do to a black icon who chooses to own a gun. Plaxico's trial will be held on March 31st and that will delegate how his rescheduled meeting with the NFLPA will go on April 1st. If Plaxico is incarcerated he will receive no money from the Giants or the NFL without a doubt. Him being cut immediately would be my assumption since it seems that the Giants are keeping thier distance from him at this point. Phil Simms seems to be the only person supporting the WR in public and he no longer has a termendous impact on the moves the New York Giants make. Bloomberg has taken away the Giants care and support by reportedly making threatening phone calls to New York owners. All I can hope for is that this young man gets a chance to keep on playing football and not in some prison upstate. For that reason Sportsroids.com will be in New York on March 31st, supporting Plaxico outside the courthouse with our official “Free Plax” T-shirts. You will be able to order these shirts through the site. When the page is up, I will post the link. Thank you all and Keep on roiding.
Gut hat sich von den Cowboys geschnitten worden und viele Menschen fragen sich, warum ihn nicht statt den Handel von Schneid ihn. The Cowboys gave up a lot to get Roy Williams and the possible could have gotten some of that back by trading TO. In this situation you have to weigh the pros and cons of this move, whenever you have a player like TO you can get a second round pick or proven vet in a trade but the trading block process is long and tedious (almost like litigation). It could take all the way into the next season for them to get what they want from a trade and they might not even get what they want from trading TO. This would then bring the media circus back to Dallas again and put a lot of stress on the team. The Cowboys decided to get rid of TO now, just for the later reason. By cutting TO he is no longer a part of the time and the organization can move on in new direction. The main reason he was cut was because of the growing sentiment in the locker room and organization, with numerous people who are a part of the team both players and staff, that TO needed to go. Also by doing this it is easy for the coaches to begin work on the plays and routes that they will focus on in the off-season if TO was on the trade block, they would still have to factor him in, just in case he was coming back next year. Despite the value TO has as a trade the Cowboys made the right decision in cutting him.
Es war wirklich überraschend für mich, als ich sah, dass Brian Dawkins die Philadelphia Eagles, die gleiche Stelle, die er während seiner gesamten Karriere bisher gespielt verlassen hatte. But it wasn't so much the fact that he wasn't going to be an Eagle anymore, but more so the fact of where he would be going… Denver. Was zur Hölle ist er da?
Wir sollten alle wissen jetzt, dass fast jede Mannschaft eine Chance hat, erfolgreich zu sein und sogar gewinnen Sie eine Super Bowl zu jeder Jahreszeit. However, at the bottom of that list would have to be the Denver Broncos. I would have figured Dawkins to want to play for a proven team or a current contender, but in this case I cannot say he has found either.
Die Denver Broncos, und es ist lustig, das zu sagen, waren nicht erfolgreich, da dass Jake Plummer hatte! Ich meine, ich weiß, Jay Cutler kommt jetzt in seine eigene, aber er ist noch nicht da. Eine andere Sache, die nicht in Denver ist eine gute Verteidigung. Ich weiß nicht, ob Dawkins Zahlen selbst, ihre Retter sein, wie ich bin sicher, dass die naive Broncos Front Office tut, aber es geht um viel mehr als eine große kostenlose Sicherheit zu ergreifen, um ein Team, das 26. gegen den Pass und 27. war stärken gegenüber der Flucht. On top of that, they gave up 28 points per game which is four touchdowns. Das ist lächerlich.
Ich meine, was er tun kann, was er natürlich will. Ich bin nicht sein Vater. Und damit meine ich nicht unbedingt glaube, es war eine schreckliche Idee, für die Broncos spielen. Ich dachte nur, dass er ein Kerl, der auf jeden Fall der Suche nach einem Anwärter und nichts weniger war. Oh well.
The biggest WR in this years free agent market will be moving teams at this weeks end! TJ Houshmanzadeh will make his decision on where he wishes to play in 2009 tonight! The top two teams in this debate have been the Seattle Seahawks and the Minnesota Vikings. We will keep you all updated on this topic. Feel free to chime in a comment if you hear anything new develope or you just want to talk about Housh! TJ has stated that he would come to a final choice on the evening of March 1st!
Die Arizona Cardinals können immer noch als Anwärter sein.Sie gingen sehr weit am vergangenen NFL-Saison ... ganz nach dem Super Bowl.Wenn es nicht für ein paar teure Fehler gewesen (dh Abfangen was zu 100 Yard-TD Gegenzug für längste Spiel in Super Bowl Geschichte von Linebacker James Harrison, und zwei fummelt vom Quarterback) und alle Dinge in diesem Spiel konstant bleiben soll, sie Meister gewesen.
Aber das macht nichts, weil sie nicht Meister und die Pittsburgh Steelers erstellt und / oder zwang die Cardinals in diesen Fehlern.Aber machen keinen Hehl daraus;Dieses Team völlig verändert ihren Ansatz, wenn die Entscheidungsspiele begann.
Ihr Vergehen blieb ebenso explosive wie schon in der Luft war, und dann schließlich beschlossen sie, auf der Flucht ein wenig mehr verlassen.Für das nächste Jahr, die Kardinäle jetzt wissen, dass sie den Ball effektiv laufen.Mit Edgerin James immer älter, und Tim Hightower ist nichts anderes als eine effektive Datensicherung, die Kardinäle haben genug Platz, um eine Leistung oder schnell, oder was auch immer Art von Rückseite, die ein Pro-Bowler kann entwerfen.Und ehrlich gesagt, sie können nicht viel schlimmer, als James und Hightower sein.
I am pretty sure that the Jets are making a move on Ray Lewis soon. They have released a lot of their depth at the Linebacker position, and seem to be positioning themselves monetarily to make a move on Ray Ray! I would love to see Ray Ray play for gang green because of the type of leader he is, however I don't feel that Baltimore has left him with much in the tank, so I hope the Jets don't go over a 2 year deal to aquire him!! If they don't sign Ray Ray they will sign Baltimore's other big free agent LB Scott. However, if Ray does come to New York, both New York teams would have great Inside Linebackers. I hope Mr Johnson doesn't screw this one up because the Jets have a more of a chance with an accused murderer in the LB core, trust me!
The Columbus Blue Jackets have registered a point in eight straight games and have won seven of those contests including a four game winning streak. This recent streak, backed by the stellar play of netminder Steve Mason, puts the Blue Jackets in prime position to make the playoffs for the first time in the team's brief history. Helping Mason lead the Jackets success this season is mister Blue Jacket himself Rick Nash who has been a very bright spot on a team which has had very limited success—that is, until now. Offseason acquisitions Kristian Huselius (Calgary) and RJ Umberger (Philadelphia) have helped make the Jackets a viable contender this year and possibly for years to come. With a core group of relatively young players Columbus will be making plenty of noise on the ice for many years to come.
The success of the Blue Jackets thus far this year is only half the story because what we're seeing is a potential hockey hotbed in its infancy. Until this year the only hockey presence in Ohio that has had any sustainable success has been via the Ohio State University. Although success at the University level is great the potential for Ohio to blossom in terms of hockey almost certainly requires the success of a major professional team. The significance of the Jackets being in Columbus is that they are the highest level of professional sport in the city which means there is no competition for fan fair from the popularity giant that is the NFL. Success for the Blue Jackets can make them the darlings of the city and would be the first of its kind in the US since other cities tend to have other pro teams in one of the other three major sports. With that in mind, the on ice play of Rick Nash and company is not significant only to the potential of the Blue Jackets and the city of Columbus, but it could also be a major victory for the popularity of the sport of hockey in the US So American hockey fans, if your team happens to fall out of contention throw a cheer the way of the Blue Jackets, their success might help you out more than you realize.
Yes it has become public that the Atlanta Falcons are actively looking for trades for Michael Vick, but all I want to know is, “where is the story in that?” Michael has so many negative strings attached to him now, you would either have to be a brilliant man or a complete idiot to want to employ him. So, let me ask you once again “where is the story in the fact that Atlanta wants to trade him?”
Larry O'Dell from the The Associated Press seems to think that the big news is that;
Personally I don't find it newsworthy when someone reports that someone who has claimed bankruptcy and is currently incarcerated, is being forced to auction off their house. No S%^* Sherlock!
Michael Loves the media!
I don't hate Vick, I just don't see importance of these recent story's. He has been kicked out of the NFL until Godell allows him back, and considering the current trend of rehablitated players like Pacman Jones, It is not hard to see that it won't be easy for Vick to get back on the field. It just isn't going to happen. If Godell just lets Vick play again in the NFL, The league would stand to take a massive hit in attendence as well as popularity! Plus, even if Vick were to return where would he even fit in? I think the real story is that the idiots in the Media are going to empower this moron and help him make some extra cash on his way to the NFL Hall of Shame, who recently enshrined Bam Norris and Rae Carruth.
Matt Ryan: Top Draft Choice picked by the Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons have no use for him as a QB considering that they drafted Matt Ryan who played pretty well this season(87.7 QB Rating, compared to Vick's last campaign in 06 of 75.5 QB Rating). “I want to ask one more time where is the story in this guy?” Atlanta has a better QB and a better team, that has no need for Vick and his “hood life issues”.The Media should not talk about this guy until he is allowed back in the NFL. It's just that simple, NO ONE WIlL TRADE FOR A PLAYER WHO IS SUSPENDED!!!! SO SHUT UP STUPID MEDIA! Go CRY ABOUT BARRY BONDS OR SOMETHING!!!
Roddy White shows his support to his ex-QB
Another thing that has really upset me is the way people percieve Vick as a QB. I will agree that Vick has phenomenal atheletic talent, there is no denying that. Michael Vick has a gift for scrambling and sprinting, but I will tell you one thing people, for all the oooos and the aaghs this man isn't worth his weight in dung as a QB. Vick is not a leader, and Vick is not a role model which he has never claimed to be thank god.
Greatest QB's of all time in my eyes (screw brady!)
Doug Williams during rookie season in Tampa Bay
People think of Vick as the quintessential black QB, because he is fast, quick, shifty and he has a very strong arm. However, Vick is not a good representation of great African American QB and that is what really upsets me about this situation. There are plenty of great black QB's who could be the benchmark for what is it to be a great African American QB, But for some reason when I ask someone to name a “Black QB” most people think of Michael Vick. Why is it that no one talks about Doug Williams, who was the first black QB to win a Superbowl. Why is it that the NFL has moved so far from empowering the legends of Steve Mcnair or Warren Moon?
Warren Moon of the Houston Oilers
We need to move on from morons like Vick and celebrate the players who actually played the QB postion well, repositioning these greats back into the in the minds of NFL fans. Yeah Vick is controversial and exciting, but at one point that wasn't the only thing the NFL and all the media cared about! So I ask you, “when did that change?”
My father used to say that Rodeo was the only sport. That no one was tougher than a Cowboy. He himself used to “bulldog” back in his day. Though those days were short lived after having seen a man have his head stomped in and spend the rest of his days talking to himself. Dear old Dad wore cowboy boots, snap button shirts and had a license plate that read RODEO: Everything Else Is Just A Game!
I have to say that with all that is going on in the seemingly unwatchable professional sports world that I must agree. Parity in football sucks. The last ten Superbowl champs just do not measure up to those before them. Baseball is a mockery now. The commissioner is coward. The players union is run by as group of arrogant jackasses empowered by lazy good for nothing drug addict ball players. Even the government is standing on ceremony now in their day late and dollar short effort to rectify the situation. NBA basketball is a disgrace. Between what they allow on and off the court coupled with the FACT that they have a gambling problem how could anyone take it seriously? Hockey lost me when the Sabres lost to the Stars on a goal that should not have counted in a game that decided the Stanley Cup Champ. I would still rather be playing NHL Hockey on Sega. And don't bother with any other sport. You are lucky I felt generous enough to include Hockey in the conversation. Next you will want to whine about soccer and tell me it is “so popular”. Yeah well not here in the real world United Stated where its biggest star bailed to go back over seas and play for less money. Soccer is a baby sitting service for terrible parents who do not love their kids and are afraid they might get hurt playing a real sport.
Which brings me to Rodeo. Beer drinking, tobacco chewing, jeans and denim shirt wearing men atop 1200lbs of raw power! Even the advertisements at these events are manly. You will not see advertisements (at least not yet) for weenie girlie men and their “ED” or hair loss. You see ads for trucks, guns, hunting, beer, sponsor tags for tobacco and even some good old fashioned down home Americana: www.borderpatrol.gov. Es ist erstaunlich. Ich liebe es. I can not get enough. I am sure one day ESPN and the advertising industry will ruin it like they have ruined every other sport worth watching. For now it really is the only thing worth watching.
The last three weeks, at work behind the bar, I have turned off both college and pro basketball, ESPN's Sportscenter, MLB network and all three New York area hockey teams in favor of VS coverage of bull riding. At first I get “what the hell are doing?” or “Whoa, what the..” “Hey put that back”. Yet every time I put on the rodeo after the first bull comes out from the chute it gets very quiet as the entire bar is focused on the one tv that is showing the bull riding. The only noise you hear from the crowd is when a cowboy gets “throwed” from his horse. Absolutely no one is watching the other 5 tv's that are all showing basketball, hockey etc. And when I turn it off the whole place erupts with an emphatic “WHOAAAA, PUT IT BACK!”
I was shocked when I heard some people in a local bar talking about Karlos Dansby possibly becoming a Giant. First of all, I would like to state that I believe Dansby to be a hell of talent. He would be a great player for any NFL team, but my one question is how could they pay him and still keep the defense in tact? Antonio Peirce, who is the undisputed leader of the Big Blue defense is looking for more money, money which he knows he deserves. I would love to sure up the LB core, but at what cost? Antonio Peirce may be the reason for the recent successes the Gmen have had against the run, considering their effectiveness directly correlates when Antonio came from the Redskins. We know Dansby wants a big market, and we can only assume he wants a”Big Market Paycheck”. It is for this reason, I implore all New York Giants fans to be careful what they wish for, It would be nothing short of a tragedy to see Pierce (The Defense's QB) walk since Reese might not be able to procure his needed funds, after the signing of such a LB as Dansby.
Well this year we have seen an unprecedented amount of coaches losing their jobs, coaches with winning teams and coaches with losing teams, as well as coaches who didn't even get to finish the season. It is important to take note of what actually is happening in NFL. Many people are confused or surprised by the amount of caches getting fired and while it may seem ridicules it is only logically.
The reason that so many coaches have been sent packing is because of the initial firings of Crennel and Mangini. With a number of other coaches being sent packing the week following the end of the regular season a domino effect was created. As the Marque coaching minds of Crennel and Mangini hit the market; well as a slew of coordinators that are ready to be head coaches teams took note. What this meant is that teams the likes of the Rams, Lions, and Browns had a chance to lock these great coaches in. While teams on the bubble like Denver, Tampa Bay, Kansa City, New York Jets, and Raiders who may have been happy with the performance or at least the skill of their coaches were forced to make a decision. This meant that if they did not get rid of these good coaches they would not be able to pick up the next crop of great coaches for some time. So they released their head coaches to hit what is really a coaching free agent market. With the successive firing of each coach like Mangini, Shannahan, Gruden, and now Edwards, teams would be stupid to let other teams pick these great coaches up, so in turn they got rid of their coaches. What you are going to see really is a giant change of hands as most of these coaches end up as head coaches at another team. Don't expect this to happen again anytime soon as you will see all the great coaches will get at least 3 years to prove their worth meaning little coaching firings occurring during that time.
On February 1st, the Arizona Cardinals will do battle against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Aside from the surprising appearance by Arizona to get to their first Super Bowl, there is a very surprising trend beginning to surmise… that is if the Steelers win the game.
In the Steelers last four Super Bowl appearances they have faced off against the LA Rams in 1979, winning 31-19, the Dallas Cowboys in 1995 losing 27-17, the Seattle Seahawks, winning 21-10, and now the Arizona Cardinals. If the Steelers win, that will mean that their last three titles will have come against present NFC West teams.
Back in 1979, the now St. Louis Rams, still were a part of the NFC West, but that division consisted of the San Francisco 49ers, New Orleans Saints, and Atlanta Falcons. Since the arrival of the Houston Texans, that division now includes the St. Louis Rams, Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks, and the 49ers.
Another interesting tidbit, like this year's Cardinals, the only other 9-7 team to ever make a Super Bowl were those same aforementioned LA Rams.
However, the most striking piece of trivia has to be that all three team's Super Bowl appearances against the Steelers were their first ever. Could this mean that the Cardinals, although a great story, are doomed to drop the ball in the non-literal sense of the phrase? Who knows, and if the world is what it is, and the Cards do lose, it shouldn't be viewed as much more than a wild coincidence. Either way, it's pretty damn cool… especially if you're a Steeler fan.
I will be the first to admit that I just do not like Tim Tebow. I absolutely want to vomit every time he hits the pull up jumper down on the goal line. Until today I thought he would not make much of a career in the NFL either. However, last night my opinion began to change a bit. Certainly not because the Fox broadcasters convinced me he is the Messiah. (Were they terrible or what?) As I watched Percy Harvin bust that long run to put the Gators back in business it made me think about Adrian Peterson and this year's NFL playoffs. All year long we had to listen to grumblings about the Vikings being a Super Bowl contender if they had a QB. So I thought to myself who are they going to find that could get them over the hump? They are built to win now. They need a leader on that offense and a veteran is just not going to be available to them and Tavaris Jackson will never be that guy. And I have news for you, Sam Bradford and the rest of the nation's would-be rookie class of QB's are no where near the level of last year's draft class. So forget another Matt Ryan/Joe Flacco type playoff run. Then as the Gator offense got rolling I thought of Vince Youngs performance in both Rose Bowls and wondered if Jeff Fisher wouldn't roll out the “Wildcat” this weekend with Vince against the Baltimore Ravens.
Then it hit me. Tebow to the Vikings. Einfach so. I think he would be the perfect fit for the Vikings offense. He could run that offense all day with Adrian Peterson behind him or beside him. He easily becomes the leader of that offense and probably the team. He is perfect for the role. He would not have to worry about passing the ball all that much. With that defense and that run game behind that offensive line try to imagine having to stop both he and Peterson every down. Thrown in a short passing game the occasional deep ball and a pull up jumper here and there, you've got something. Nein?
Dienstagabend Jarkko Ruutu der Ottawa Senators Bit offenbar Sabres 'Verteidiger Andrew Peters in den Daumen. It is awful that Ruutu did that and hopefully he is severely punished, but it is the hope of hockey fans everywhere that the casual fan will not once again only see hockey in this light (since ESPN eats stuff like this up) and think that's all that goes on in hockey. Wenn alles, was sie in NFL Deckung tat, war in den Augen zeigen Jungs immer steckte oder wirklich schlecht facemask Strafen und Quarterbacks immer ausgeschlagen oder Jungs immer gelähmt es Fußball sicherlich geben würde einen schlechten Ruf, aber wir alle wissen, dass Sachen nicht häufig vorkommen, und die NHL sollte die gleiche Beachtung geschenkt werden. Also bitte, wenn Sie beiläufig Fans als Freunde und denke, das ist, wie es ist die ganze Zeit Sie erhalten sie, nur um eine Reihe von Spielen zu folgen und sie werden schnell sehen, es ist nicht ein jedes Spiel Auftreten.
Jetzt auf der besseren Seite von Hockey und das wäre zwei große Match-Ups Dienstagabend zwischen der Boston Bruins und Minnesota Wild und das Spiel in der Nacht zwischen Washington und Philadelphia. Boston wurde 1-0 von Minnesota besiegt damit zwei in einer Reihe für Boston Abkühlung die dann heißesten Team in der Liga. Was ist es, aus diesem Spiel gelernt werden soll, Minnesota ist einfach besser bei der Ausführung des gefürchteten neutralen Zone Falle als die Bruins Kopf-an-Kopf. Boston war in der Lage zu öffnen, die Eis, mehr Tore schießen, aber jetzt, wenn andere Teams aufmerksam Minnesota lehrte sie eine große Lektion. Wenn Sie das Spiel verlangsamen und spielen die meisten davon in der Mitte Eis Boston wird so frustriert, weil sie so hungrig, ein Tor, dass sie am Ende Eislaufen in Kreisen und nicht alles in Gang zu bringen sind. Patience is the best way to beat Boston not trying to outscore them.
Wie für Washington und Philadelphia, alles, muss dazu gesagt werden, im Moment ist, dass, wenn Sie für die Anti-Ruutu Spiel suchen, das war das ein zu beobachten. That game was everything that makes hockey such a great game to watch.
Harry Carson Of The New York Giants Meets John Elway, Tom Jackson And Three Other Denver Broncos for The Superbowl XXI Coin Toss
Why is it so hard for people to wrap their head around a tie? Why is it so important to have a winner be declared? More importantly why is the crucial outcome of such events decided by a coin flip? The NFL should eliminate overtime. What is the point? Can we just for once be satisfied with two teams being equal on “any given Sunday?” Not Superbowl Sunday of course but the third Sunday in November really should not be a big deal. Should it? The winning percentages straighten themselves out at season's end anyway to determine all divisional champions as well as Wild Card teams. They have “tie breakers” in place for any possible confusion that may occur. “Winning isn't everything” right?
I propose two things. First the NFL eliminate overtime completely from the regular season. I know I would be considered crazy to suggest it be eliminated from the playoffs and Superbowl as well so I will not go there. Regular season games will end in a tie at the end of regulation. Playoff games would be decided by letting time run out and continuing on without stopping using just the play clock until someone scores. To make it more challenging, eliminate field goal trys after regulation. Either punt or go for it on 4th down. Imagine the madness as Wade Phillips is rushing the field goal unit on to the field as time is winding down in regulation while Tony Romo and Terrell Owens are waving them off to keep running plays to try and win it in a runoff? Could you imagine that post game press conference with Jerry Jones?
Second I propose the elimination of coin flips all together including at the start of the game. Let's face it, every team wants the same thing: To win the toss and defer to the second half. So why not just give the road team the ball to start every game and allow the home team to choose which goal to defend? Each team will start half their games with the ball and the other half on defense. In the playoffs the same rule should apply.
And this comes from a guy who bets on the coin toss before every Superbowl. TAILS NEVER FAILS!!!
But aside from all this, the most telling stat is the following. The combined records of the Tennessee Titans regular season opponents was 92-115, and the Ravens was 123-94. This just tells me that the Ravens have been having their mettle tested a lot more often than the surprising Titans up to this point.
Ravens move to within one victory of the Super Bowl.
The Eagles strengths lie in their defense and experience. Even though the Vikings are sporting the 1 st ranked run defense, their pass defense is only 18 th in the league, giving up 215.6 yards per game. That does not match well with the defense of Philadelphia as they ranked 4 th in run defense, 92.2ypg, and 3 rd in total pass defense, 182.1ypg. That type of run defense is more-than solid and should be able to keep Adrian Peterson, the league's top rusher with 1,760 yards, in check for the most part. And I stress “for the most part” as even though the Eagles rush D is just three spots behind the Vikings, Peterson is still the league's leading rusher for a reason, and for that, I believe he will have at least one big run in the game.
What really stands out for the eagles defensively is their pass defense, because Jackson, although he has improved, is still only averaging 185 yards through the air in his return, which is only 2.9 yards more than what the eagles are giving up. This means that he could easily be limited to within 100-150 yards, and if the Vikings main threat is going to be one to, at the most, three big gainers from Peterson and only a game-management style of play by Jackson, things are not looking up.
Although the Vikings play at home this weekend, they face a veteran team in the Eagles who are more accustomed to playing in big games. Even if it took four straight NFC Championship games for Donovan McNabb to finally get his team to a Super Bowl, he is still much more playoff savvy than the young Tarvaris Jackson, as is the entire Eagles team. Although both teams are great at stopping the run, Philadelphia is averaging 244.4 yards per game through the air, and with the disparity in the rankings of the two clubs pass defenses being 15 spots (Vikings 18 th minus Eagles 3 rd equals 15), then that is where the true edge in this contest lies.
On Sunday, January 4th, at 1:00pm eastern, the Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens will line up against each other one last time in Miami in a Wild-Card Weekend matchup.
Although the Dolphins play at home, and are riding the emotional high an unprecedented successful season and comeback year of Chad Pennington, I have to go with the Ravens. They can negate their opponent's run, and kill them with their own. Furthermore, Joe Flacco is quickly being molded into the confident game manager who can make a few plays here and there that Baltimore has been looking for. I only see Joe Flacco having, at the most, one turnover, and with their 2 nd ranked total defense (261.1ypg) and 3 rd ranked defense in points given up per game (15.2), the Ravens can easily overcome it. I cannot see a team who beat squads like Seattle without QB Matt Hasselbeck by two points, Oakland by two points as well, San Francisco by five, all at home, and Saint Louis by four on the road beating this gritty Ravens team.
Ravens will move on to play the one-seeded Tennessee Titans next week.
Von einem "Scheißhaufen" Nest zum anderen, die Atlanta Falcons Kopf bis Arizona diese 3. Samstag Januar euch vor, gegen die Kardinäle am 16.30.
Das erste Spiel der Wild-Card Weekend mit zwei Teams, die ich bin sicher, viele Leute würden argumentieren, werden "ein-und-getan" Teams.Allerdings ist die Tatsache, eine dieser ein-und-Döner wird auf jeden Fall mit der Frage, natürlich wird die fortschreit werden.
Die Atlanta Falcons nicht zu viel auf den Kopf haben defensiv.Die einzige herausragende Spieler in dieser Saison war John Abraham, die für 47% der Atlanta 35 Säcke mit 16,5 Gesamtbilanziert.Das ist nicht sehr gut.Das heißt der anderen typischen Sackers auf einem Standard-NFL-Team, würden die drei Linebacker, die andere Defensive End, und vielleicht die starke Sicherheit in einigen Fällen einen Durchschnitt von 3,8 Säcke a-Stück produziert haben.Schade für die Falcons, dass Herr Milloy, die starke Sicherheit, keine.Ihren 21. Platz Pass Verteidigung gab 220,4 Yards pro Spiel, und ihre 25. Platz Lauf D gab 127,5 Yards pro Spiel.
Diese Art von Durch Verteidigung wird nicht gut gegen einen Quarterback Kurt Warner, die in mehr als 4.500 Meter in dieser Saison warf Gutes.Was die Falcons laufen Verteidigung geht, ich denke, das ist nicht so schlimm wie die Kardinäle eilen Straftat war gut für Last mit 73,6 Yards pro Spiel, was bedeutet, wenn sie gerade nicht vermasseln keine Zuweisungen und verpassen keine Zweikämpfe, sollten sie in der Lage, eine solide auf bewundernswerte Anstrengungen gegen den Lauf zu posten.
Aber Edgerin James gegen die Seahawks in dieser Woche angesammelt 100 Yards auf 14 trägt.Er hat sich in dieser Saison gewesen, aber vielleicht konnte er versuchen, zu beweisen, dass er noch etwas Gas im Tank denn das war sein erstes Spiel in eine Weile, und wenn es jemals ein Spiel für ihn, so zu tun, könnte dies sei es.Und ich weiß, das Argument kann sein, dass er es getan hat gegen Seattle, aber mit einem 25. Platz laufen Verteidigung sind die Falcons nicht viel besser.Wer weiß?Vielleicht ist die Karte eine zwei-back-System mit James und Tim Hightower laufen, und sie konnten frisch bleiben und ein paar anständige Gewinner hier und da.
Auf der anderen Seite der Dinge, gab der Cardinals Verteidigung bis 26,6 Punkte pro Spiel.Die meisten Teams nicht einmal den Hauch einer Chance auf als im Rennen im Finale Wochen meisten regelmäßigen NFL Jahreszeiten mit dieser Art der Verteidigung, aber zum Glück für die Kardinäle, die sie in einem schlechten Division gespielt.Hinzu kommt, dass, Arizona Pass D war 22. Verzicht auf 221,2 Yards pro Spiel.Aber das Schlimmste ist, dass ihre Laufverteidigung, die Michael Turner (1.699 Yards und 2. in der NFL) zugewandt ist, war 16. Verzicht auf 110,2 Yards pro Spiel.
Die Falcons MO ganze Jahr war es, den Ball zu Turner so viel wie möglich zu geben, so dass Matt Ryan muss nur 2-3 gut zu machen oder große spielt ein Spiel, in der Regel auf Roddy White, der vierte unter allen breite Empfänger mit 1.382 Yards und war hatte sieben von Ryans 16 gesamt TDs.
Die Quintessenz ist, mit den nahezu identisch Abwehrkräfte beider Seiten, wenn die Matt Ryan-geführte Falcons mehr Erfahrung auf dem Buckel, wäre dieses Spiel das Zeug für einen Sieg Atlanta, wie sie konnte den Lauf Spiel geschliffen und gehalten haben gehabt haben die Durchläufe auf ein Minimum wie das Arizona Run-Spiel und führen Verteidigung hat im Grunde war nicht existent für die meisten der Saison.
Allerdings ... Ich muss nur noch mit Kurt Warner Willen, Erfahrung, zwei Bolzen breite Empfänger in Larry Fitzgerald und Anquan Boldin und den heimischen Fans zu kommen an die Spitze zu gehen.Das Tandem von Boldin und Fitzgerald sind genug, um für die nicht mit einem Laufspiel gegen eine junge Mannschaft wie Atlanta bilden.Ich glaube, Matt Ryan ist einfach zu jung, um dieses Spiel zu nehmen, und für all die Kritik, die die Kardinäle haben in verlieren vier der letzten fünf Spiele erhalten, ist es fast wie Kurt Warner erhält damit beginnen, wieder frisch.Und ich sage das, weil in ihrer jüngsten Verluste, die Kardinäle waren immer früh zu dem Punkt, wo Warner brauchte nicht einmal die Mühe, den Rest von was auch immer Spiel spielten sie durchgebrannt.Und wenn Konvention besagt, dass Spieler müssen heiß bleiben gehen in der Nachsaison, sehe ich nicht, dass als hier mit Kurt Warner der Fall.
Grundsätzlich sind beide Teams nicht auf der Suche, wie Super Bowl-Anwärter, und schließlich, wenn es bis zu zwei "one-and-done" Art-Teams kommt, du musst gehen mit den Jungs zu Hause zu spielen und vor allem mit mit dem erfahrenen Quarterback.Cardinals gewinnen.
This week we have the longest rivalry in the NFL, two teams that give it their all every time they play each other. The Bears still have a shot at the playoffs but the Packers would like nothing more than to spoil their hopes. These two teams are equal in talent but the edge has to go to the Bears. Look for the Bears to just find a way to win, with a true team effort.
I think Arthur Blank, the owner of the Atlanta Falcons, is ready to let go at now.
One thing pissing me off big time after week 16 is the following… why is no one mentioning that the Falcons have a chance to lock up the number two seed in the NFL? If The Falcons accomplish the highly un-venerable task of defeating the waste-filled Saint Louis Rams in Atlanta this weekend, and the Carolina Panthers are defeated in New Orleans next week, the Atlanta Falcons end up winning the NFC South. We already know that the Giants have locked up the top seed by beating Carolina in OT Sunday night, but the Cardinals at best can finish 9-7 in the NFC West, and the Bears or Vikings can only finish at 10-6 to win the NFC North. Was bedeutet das? Either the Falcons or Panthers are guaranteed the two seed.
But why is no one talking about it? Because every dumb analyst has it in their mind that the Falcons wonderful turn-around in the post Michael Vick mortem was simply in clinching their Wild Card berth. But hello! They can even get a bye! That would be totally huge!
Not only do they overcome last year's fiasco and make the playoffs with a rookie QB, but they now have a chance to put themselves in a highly viable position of reaching a Super Bowl with one home win and one road win, as long as the Giants win their first game. I mean, geez, they could end up hosting the NFC Championship if the Giants lose their first game!
Someone please talk about it. I've watched PTI, Sports Center, and heard every FOX, CBS, and NBC analyst and commentator and not one of them has thought about this. It pisses me off and I almost hope to god that the Falcons get the two seed to see if they all have dumb looks on their faces.
Carolina… pleeeeease lose. I already know the Falcons have the Rams game in their back pocket, so I'm not worried about you. Später.
The San Diego Chargers duke it out against the Denver Broncos for AFC West supremacy next Sunday night.
It's official. The word literally just came through about thirty seconds ago, and it will be the San Diego Chargers, who were widely thought to be finished with their season, having a chance to make a miraculous comeback and enter the playoffs by winning their division. What's even more is the fact that they'd be doing it with an 8-8 record if they were to win.
This game showcases two of the big number producing quarterbacks in the league in Philip Rivers who has the league-high in TDs, 32, and Jay Cutler whose been shredding defenses for a good portion of the season. This game also features two teams who have been highly inconsistent, and where now, it is truly “put up or shut up” time.
Everybody whose anybody remembers what happened the first time these two teams met this season, when referee Ed Hochuli called a fumble by Jay Cutler as an incomplete pass that cost the Chargers the game in Denver. Now it's either going to be the Chargers getting their revenge, or Jay Cutler proving that the Broncos were the better team all along… and I simply can't wait to see what happens.
With just two weeks of play left in the regular season of the 2008-2009 year, a few teams have locked up a spot in the playoffs while others are still fighting to make it. What is about to unfold in this article is, what are in my mind, the teams that will make it.
We already know the Steelers and Titans have locked up spots and first round byes in the AFC. In the NFC the Giants have clinched their division while the Cardinals have as well. First I will go over the locks to get in.
This week we have Cleveland vs Philadelphia this is an easy one I have Philly in the playoffs and they need a win this week. Expect the McNabb to have a big game as well as Jackson. Cleveland will not be able to handle the fire power that the Eagles have.
The top ten for this week is a little late but that is because I actually had to do some research for this one. It seems like when I came back from vacation the NFL was in turmoil. Pac'Man was reinstated. Players were in trouble for using banned substances. Plaxico Burress had even shot himself in the leg. In light of all these circumstances I have decided to do the NFL's top 10 f*”&k ups. My criteria is not solely based on behavior, but on the talent of the player as well, meaning bums who got into trouble don't make the list. Here you go.
“Come on OJ really?” I am not going to talk about what OJ did He just should have known that when they had the chance they would get him. OJ is the clear number one on this list. After dodging one major bullet, OJ decides that he is going to step in front on another one 13 years later.
A more recent name is Antonio Bryant. He is on the list because of his off-field troubles as well, but what really puts him on the list is his talent. Antonio is one of the most talented receivers in the league but the guy was not even in the league last year. After some smaller off the field troubles in Dallas, and Cleveland, he capped it off by driving over 100 mph in his Lamborghini while intoxicated which lead to his suspension in San Francisco, and ultimately his dismissal from the team. The guy was such af*&k up that last year he was eligible to play in the NFL, but no team wanted to take a chance on him and now look at him. All I can say is “Don't blow it Antonio.”
The cowboys may have to play the remainder of the season without Adam Jones in the defensive backfield, which is a huge deal considering they don't have any depth at DB. This week THE BOYS will start their swiss cheese secondary against the Giants. I expect Eli to have a big game. The Pacman news may seem like small news, but when you take into account their laundry list of injuries, its not hard to jump to grasp it's severity. Jerry Jones may have been better suited to have picked up some free agents DB's rather than wasting 3 draft picks on Odessa's #1 WR Roy Williams. Just look at the secondary for this week's Giants game, I am starting to think they will have no one to actually play Safety. Hamlin (Ankle) probably won't be ready and Keith Davis (MCL) is not likely to play and remember that Roy Williams is on IR. So who is going to start? That is a question that I don't think Wade Phillips knows the answer to either. Right now it looks like Tra Battle and Courtney Brown will get the start, at the Safety spots. Yet again because of this you should expect a big game for Eli and Giants second year TE Kevin Boss for several reasons. The First reason is that Tra Battle, who was cut earlier this season by the Chargers, is severely undersized and will be expected to cover the TE during certain man packages during this game. In the Red Zone this will really kill the boys. Also Courtney Brown is a ex-corner who just wasn't agile enough to play CB at the NFL level. He is not a reliable player and in this big game he could be exploited. This duo just won't match up against Big Blue's crew of Wide-Outs.
Sorry Boy's fans, your season is already over, finito!
The Cowboys have a pretty rough upcoming schedule, in which they will face the New York Giants (11-2), Baltimore Ravens (9-4) and Philadelphia Eagles (7-5-1). These are teams that I don't know if they could beat even when they were healthy. So now with the cowboys all banged up, I have to say is, “Stick a fork in it. Good job for beating Seattle and San Francisco, but the reality is your still not making the playoffs! SO STOP TALKING ABOUT IT!!!!!”
That Steelers defense must be really strong. It has to be with the offensive performance the Steelers put on in their near-miss, 20-13 victory over the Dallas cowboys on Sunday.
The Steelers were able to put up seventeen unanswered points in the fourth quarter after riding three total since the close of the first half. When the Steelers had just about enough time for two more scoring drives after failing to punch it in on 4 th and one from the one yard line, the Pittsburgh offense finally came through.
But why is it that once again, another team with great defense is having trouble finding an offense that can't return the favor? Even with the Cowboys putting on a great show as their corners continuously blanketed their receivers, save for a big play to Holmes in the second half, one would think that Ben Roethlisberger could easily guide his team to at least seventeen to twenty-one points per game against the Cowboys? The final seven points came on defense off an errant throw from Tony Romo that was picked off by Deshea Townsend and taken 25 yards into the end zone.
Either way, the Steelers are 10-3 and in the driver seat for at least the two seed and a first round bye in the playoffs. But, they still show signs of another of plenty teams who look too inconsistent to call a Super Bowl shoe contender.
I don't have much to say about Bryant. He does do some silly things as proved by his delay of game penalty during monday night's game. It's hard to believe that no NFL team wanted to employ him last year! Honestly a 200 yard 2TD game on monday night against a good secondary is an accomplishment that deserves to be acknowledged. Without a doubt, Antonio has cemented himself as Garcia's number 1 target and everyone who can should pick him up now, in thier respective fantasy leagues! He will go up against Atlanta next week and could put up some great numbers for you. Anyone who doesn't beleve in this guy should be brought outside and shot. Antonio has gone over 110 yards in three of his the last seven games, lets all stand up and give the man some respect! At 6′4 Antonio is a huge redzone target, who also has the skill set to brake big gains for the remainder of this season!
This week we have the Panthers and the Bucs, Coming back from vacation I feel like I have a renewed dedication to my picks. The Bucs gave the Panthers the smackdown last time but this time it will be different. Look for Steve Smith to come up big this week against the Bucs as the panthers try to win the division.
Another interesting tidbit is the similar adversity that both teams have faced in the middle portion of the season; when the cowboys lost 3 of four, and when Ben Roethlisberger had his team looking quite mediocre with his poor play. Now, both squads have won three straight games, and only one's streak will continue (the NFL already had its tie for the next many seasons when the Bengals and Eagles finished 13-13 in week 11). Even more fascinating are the striking resemblance of all three wins.
The Steelers beat the Chargers at home 11-10 with a field goal in the waning seconds of the game. The Cowboys ran out the clock in Washington for a 14-10 victory. After that, both teams have won convincingly by an average of 30 and 19 points respectively.
This matchup is almost guaranteed to live up to its historic building, and if you're out of both team's markets and are privileged to get its television feed this Sunday at 4:15pm, you better not miss it.
I saw this and just started laughing. Just watch Marshawn's face when he tries to answer what his skill set is! This is priceless. Haha he goes retarded for a split second. Just look at the difference some time in the league can make, honestly Lynch is such a better interviewer now it's amazing. This video was shot during the combine and may have been featured by Nike in a rookie commercial.
The NFL has hit its third quarter mark, and after twelve of the most up-and-down weeks of football in recent history, it is still a bit of a stretch to call anybody a true lock for the Super Bowl save for the New York Giants. However, there are still a few teams that are definitely pulling away from most others as viable Super Bowl contenders.
The first team, resoundingly, is the Giants. This is the best team in the league as far as everyone being on the same page. They have shown great depth to overcome almost all injuries, and even self-imposed gunshot wounds. Their one loss to the Browns in Cleveland where they went down by a score of 14 to 35 was a true head-scratcher. However, that game can definitely hold an asterisk for being an aberration since the Brownies have been terrible for the most part. The Giants have gone from a team with potential who plays on emotion, to a team that just flat out knows how to win. They are a well-oiled machine and are unphased by whatever distractions, whatever home field advantages their opponents have, and whichever fallen soldier opponents might be playing for.
The second team that comes to mind in my view is the Pittsburgh Steelers. Their loss to the Eagles was just one of those days where nothing goes good offensively. They had a slump against the two Manning led teams but seem to have their act together as they have won convincingly for the most part ever since.
After that, I would say the Cowboys are the sleeper. They slumped big time early on. They did not have their act together as they seemed to display the heir of a team who already saw themselves in the Super Bowl. Now with their backs against the wall, they are looking like that kind of team again.
As for other squads like the Panthers and Bucs, their efforts are certainly admirable, but their quarterbacks, Jake Delhomme and Jeff Garcia respectively, are just too inconsistent. The Arizona Cardinals are like the Saints… great passing attack and not much more. The only difference is their division stinks. The one team that could be close to a contender is the Atlanta Falcons. They are moving milestones ahead in their rebuilding process at 8-4, and are perhaps one or two more productive seasons, and a good losing post season experience away from becoming a perennial contender.
Other than that, all of the other teams are just a little too consistent for my blood.
Donovan Mcnabb is proving that even with all the garbage he gets from philly fans that he is the best QB for the eagles. This week he threw for 4 td's and no ints as he lead the eagles to victory over the surging Arizona Cardinals. DONOVAN even got boo'd after going 8-8 in the first quarter when he threw his first incomplete pass! Damn I can't wait until he gets out of philly and ends up somewhere were people will appreciate him. Seriously, without McNabb eagles stink ! I mean sure go ahead throw your Star QB under the bus when you season does not pan out the way you cheese-steak eating idiots planned it. Yeah Kolb now that's the answer. Seriously Dnabb is the 4th most winning-est QB in league history and he has the best winning percentage among all active QB's so how are you going to tell me Kolb gives you the best chance to win? Honestly their must be a lot of blushing people in Philly on this day. I hope the media apologizes to Dnabb because after the last week of punishment they deliberated, they ought to. I love philly i just wish they took care of their hero's that's all!
So you think you are smarter than Donovan Mcnabb? or your team's starting QB try to prove it here with this sample Wonderlic Test, that we dugg up on the Net!

Diese Woche im Preis geht an Randy Moss Ich weiß, ihr waren viele beeindruckende Leistungen in dieser Woche aber 3 Aufnahme TDs, die die Wahrheit gerade nach oben Homie hat Matt Cassell ist in zu setzen mehr Arbeit, diese prestigeträchtige Auszeichnung zu erhalten und ohne Randy Mosskeiner seiner stats möglich wäre. After being “disrespected” as Randy put it when they played him single coverage he torched the Dolphins. Randy managed to get 8 receptions for 125 yards and 3TDS , and now the Dolphins know when you disrespect Randy Moss you disrespect yourself and that my friends is why Randy Moss has Mad Skills.

Seriously what is going on in Philly? Honestly, Donovan is heart of the team. With Westbrook hurting, he is their only option. Kevin Kolb is no Jeff Garcia. Donovan has proven his worth, over the past years, winning games with sub par personal. This organization has done nothing to set up Mcnabb, besides the acquisition of Terrell Owens. Philadelphia fans should realize he has put up great numbers without a star receiver over the past 10 years. This guy is the real deal and if you boo him and don't respect him your future really to me looks grim. Donovan has shown to be more than just talent and is without a doubt under appreciated. This team and organization and fan base is ass backwards. This kid is a winner, there is no arguing that. Philly fans better think next time they cheer his benching, because come next year he could be a Bear or even worse a Redskin.
Even after being a college standout
Donovan has been criticized in the NFL from his very first day
This weeks top 10 is the top 10 NFL teammates that you would not want to run into in an alley. We all know the NFL has some scary guys out their but certain teams have two guys that you just do not want to run into here is my top ten list .
Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs:
You do not want to run into these guys in an alley, or in your house, or at a party hell you don't want to bump into one of these guys at Disney World, who knows what they would do to you if drop some Mickey Mouse ice cream on one of their shoes.
2.Brandon Jacobs, Justin tuck:
These dudes are huge rumor has it that Justin tuck can rip a mans heart out with his bare hands and give it to Brandon Jacobs who will then take it and run over your entire family on his way to spike your heart in the middle of the endzone at Giants Stadium.
3.Brian Urlacher, Tommie Harris:
Brain Urlacer may have been a chump before he started using swagger, but now he is defiantly not a person you want to run into in an alley, hell the guy looks like he should be in Universal soldier, and Tommie Harris is closest thing to the real life Debo I have ever seen god forbid you run it him and your name is Craig.
4.Takeo Spikes, Patrick Willis:
Takeo Spikes just looks like he wants to murder you, and Patick Willis looks like he wants to help.
5.Pat William, EJ Henderson:
EJ Henderson looks pissed of at the world and if you are a part of the world well….That means he is mad at you to, Pat Williams eats babies…..of elephants, so you would just be a snack to him, but unluckily for you he is always snacking.
6.James Harrison, Aaron smith:
James Harrison and Aaron Smith look like they are straight out of a prison movie, if you run into these guys in an alley you are going to need more than a Shawshank Redemption.
7. Joey Porter, Randy Starks:
Joey Porter was the first (you don't want to see me in an alley) guy, and rightfully so; because you don't see Joey Porter in a alley. If you are in a alley and Joey Porter is at the same time you just cease to exist. Hell Randy really doesn't even need to be on this list because of that.
8.Adam Jones, Tank Williams:
I would put these guys higher on the list but there is only so much that they can do to you in alley because the FEDS are probably watching them.
9.AJ Hawk, Nick Barnett:
Well we have all seen Ninja turtles right? Remember Tokka and Rahzar, yeah? Well after that movie they apparently became linebackers for the Green Bay Packers, I mean these two guys are beast, if you bump into them you better make sure that you have some num nums.
10. John Henderson, Mike Peterson:
John Henderson is 6'7 and weighs over 300 pounds odds are if you ran into him in a alley Mike Peterson would be sitting on his shoulder talking trash while Henderson slaps you in the mouth just to get hype for a game.
This weeks award goes to Anquan Boldin he just missed 200 receiving yards for the game by one catch. Anquan Boldin has been a monster all season and this week the Seahawks couldn't find the silver bullet to stop him. Anqaun piled up 186 receiving yards on Sunday and did it in such an impressive fashion that it was almost like he was playing against High School kids. It doesn't help that he is also a giant for a receiver and plays next to Larry Fitzgerald another monster receiver, however Anquan was making plays non-stop despite the Seahawks efforts to stop him and that is why Anquan has mad skills.
Honestly, with all the fines that have been going around the league because of retard Roger Goodell, you would think they would have something to say about Marvin Harrison! “Oh wait, Haven't you heard? I was under the impression that everyone heard yeah ! yeah the bird bird bird bird is the word!”
No seriously, though Marvin Harrison probably shot someone!
Marvin is really feeling the pressure now!
Yet let that sink in, NFL hero Marvin Harrison is under review for attempted murder!
Now, how do you feel ?
It sucks I know. but what do you expect he is from Philadelphia…
I am very upset that they(NFL league office) let Marvin Harrison still play even though he is pretty much under review of attempted Murder. The story goes that Marvin was visiting his home town of Philadelphia. Marvin frequents and owns a bar called “Playmakers”. Pretty stupid name, I know. Nevertheless during his night at the bar, he got into a altercation with a man. After around 5:20 PM, witness's said that the man left the bar, and then Witness's then saw Marvin leave the bar following the man, then soon after this, gunshots ensued. The man who Marvin had the disagreement was shot in the hand and his son had some serious injuries due to the broken glass in his eyes. They were together in their car, when the bullets hit them. The bullets casings recovered from the incident matched in a ballistics test to a gun that Marvin owns! The ballistic tests showed that the gun that had fired the shots was a custom made Belgian weapon, and police already have determined that Harrison owned such a gun. This is a custom gun, Marvin this just isn't good.
The Police Reported to the press immediately, in hopes of defusing the situation
Early Media Reactions
In a shocking turn, it is sad to see that one of the stand up players in the NFL actually has turned out to be a complete moron.Regardless if he is the shooter, he gun was nevertheless used in this shooting. So what if he didn't shot him, then he is negligent with his firearms and that makes me not respect the All-pro just as well. I know that there are many reports that these charges are bogus, but lets be honest with ourselves, if he did do it would the NFL do everything in their power to cover it up? Yeah I think so. We have once again been let down by one of our NFL hero's (Future HOF) and the NFL has said nothing about this. They instead have just swept it under the carpet, due to Marvin's reputation, and trust me they fear this would hurt the league, and it probably would, but no more than the recent phantom roughing the passer calls. All I am saying is nobody is perfect, and Marvin is an AS*HOLE!! I loved you Marvin how could you do this 2 me!!! I think you did it, and that makes me upset!
The Cops have all the evidence they need to charge Marvin. They have ballistics weapon test and victim cooperation, so there has definitely been something fishy going on. Can you say NFL cover up?
Just look at this list of evidence.
1.Ballistics tests have proved that the shell casings found at the shooting had been fired from Harrison's gun, which is a Belgian-made FN5.7.
This is the FN-57, which is the type of gun that was used in the shooting.
2. They have found the weapon at one of Marvin Harrison nearby business's “Chucky's Garage” on Thompson street. Which was close to the incident, even though Marvin had supposedly had reported to the police that the gun was at his home and had never left his home residence.
3. He and Dixon have had a long traceable history, and this incident was definitely building up.
This makes me sick! Marvin regardless even he didn't fire, Marvin must have allowed some one else to fire upon Dixon with his pistol. The police have a match. What else do they need? Oh right, the Ok from the NFL lawyers ! If Harrison's name was spelled “PACMAN” he would already be receiving the death penalty.
Well it seems that Brett Favre will achieve the goals that the organization has set for him and that is to take the team to the Playoffs. The Jets jumped on the Pats early in the game though the Pats were able to come back, it wasn't enough. You can't help to think that if Brady was playing they would have won that game. However he is not and will not. The Pats with this loss, have solidified themselves at second place in the AFC East. Warum? Because of the two teams, the Pats have to play tougher teams, and the Jets look really good, while the Pats are getting by on coaching alone. Look for the Jets to win the Division and the Pats to struggle to grab a birth in the playoffs.
Die Jets beginnen, einige Konsistenz überzeugend gewinnen gegen die Buffalo Bills und Rams in den letzten beiden Wochen zu zeigen.Sie stellen sich jetzt das größte Spiel der Saison bisher in New England am Donnerstag Abend.New England wurde, dass das Leben zu beweisen, ohne Brady ist noch überschaubar, aber ich denke, die Jets stetige Verbesserung auf Verteidigung, festen Boden Spiel hinter Thomas Jones, und in letzter Zeit weniger Umsatz anfällig vorbei Brett Favre wird den Tag bereuen.
DEN 5-4 in ATL 3.6
The Falcons are becoming a model of consistency.Ihre Fähigkeit, große Früh Leitungen herausspringen ist bemerkenswert für ein junges Team.Sie spielen zu Hause gegen die Liga den 28. Platz vorbei Verteidigung und 27. Platz eilen Verteidigung.Das verheißt nichts Gutes für eine Bronco Mannschaft spielt gegen eine effiziente Matt Ryan, und Hof-Regal Michael Turner.Falcons win.
DET 0-9 anCAR 7-2
Carolina hat den Luxus, mit Blick auf ein Team wie die Raiders in der vergangenen Woche, die, auch wenn Delhomme wirft vier Interceptions wieder auf, sollte immer noch zu schlagen.I don't see Jake tossing that many picks this week. Panthers win handily.
PHI 5-4 bei CIN 1-8
Mit Carson Palmer wieder heraus und die Eagles immer von einem Sonntagabend-Heimniederlage gegen den Riesen, die Bengals werden eingestellt, um zu verlieren, ... wieder.
NO 4-5 at KC 1-8
Die Heiligen beweisen, dass alles, was sie haben, ist ein hervorragendes Passspiel, das keine laufenden Spiel schwebt rund Mittelmäßigkeit retten kann, und eine Verteidigung Benchmarking auf Unfähigkeit.Die Chiefs waren nicht die walk-in-the-Park wurden sie früher in dieser Saison zu verlieren, um einen Punkt auf San Diego am vergangenen Wochenende, verlor jedoch gegen Tampa Bay zu Hause in OT in der Woche vor, und nur verlieren durch vier in New York, um die Jets in der Woche vor, dass.I'm going with KC
BAL 6-3 auf 8-1 NYG
Die Baltimore Ravens tatsächlich erzielte in der Offensive in diesen Tagen.In der Tat, sind sie immer ein Spiegelbild der Riesen;starken Druck verursachenden Verteidigung, ein mehr als fähig, stabil von Running Backs und eine effiziente und spielen Fassungs Pass Straftat.Suchen Sie nach einer in der Nähe Spiel mit den erfahreneren Giants kommen an die Spitze.
MIN 5-4 at TB 6-3
Wenn es eine Sache gibt, dass die Minnesota Vikings haben in der vergangenen Woche Herzinfarkt induzierende Ein-Punkt-Sieg der Packers letzte Woche gelernt haben, es ist die folgende ... geben den Ball an Adrian Peterson.Ich glaube, dass Gus Frerotte Ableben Versuche werden um fast die Hälfte gekürzt werden die 28. Auch wenn die Bucs für solide Verteidigung bekannt ist, werde ich mich auf Peterson Bank grassierenden laufen letzte Woche.Vikings gewinnen überzeugend.
OAK 2-7 at MIA 5-4
Obwohl die Raiders nun den gleichen Datensatz wie die underachieving Seahawks, die auf zwei Punkte an Stauchen der Dolphins in Miami in der vergangenen Woche zu sich kam, würde ich nicht auf einer ähnlichen Leistung von ihnen in dieser Woche zählen.Die überraschenden Dolphins wird bis 6-4 und dem zweiten Platz in der AFC East zu bewegen.
CHI 5-4 at GB 4-5
Green Bay sollten ihre Glücksstern, dass sie diese Gelegenheit haben zu zählen.Sie bekommen die Division führenden Bears zu Hause mit einer Chance auf einen Tie-Break über Chicago und den zweiten Platz in der Division zu bekommen, wenn sie gewinnen, und einen ersten Platz erreicht, wenn sie gewinnen und die Wikinger zu verlieren.I'll take the Packers to clean things up in their passing game this week after Rodgers was a not-so-great 15-25 with only 142 passing yards and no touchdowns.Pack gewinnt.
HOU 3-6 auf 5-4 IND
The Texans look to make up for the 21 points they gave up in the last seven plus minutes of a week five loss to the Colts at home. However, the Colts have won two straight and look to be getting back in contention. Colts win.
STL 2-7 bei SF 2-7
This division matchup may not even be worth discussing, but for the sake of fairness let's do it.Die Rams blickte zurück zu dem, was sie mit Scott Linehan als Trainer in ihren 47-3 Niederlage gegen die Jets in der vergangenen Woche.On the other side, the 49ers looked more believable as a team with Shaun Hill under center on Monday Night.Nach dem qualvollen Leistung setzten sie auf in Arizona, werde ich in San Francisco, um zu gewinnen.
ARI 6-3 at SEA 2-7
Die Kardinäle haben eine Chance, Haus in Seattle mit einem Sieg zu reinigen in dieser Woche.Sie bekommen, ein anderes ihrer schwachen Teil Gegner, von denen alle 2-7 (Saint Louis und San Francisco sind die beiden anderen) zu spielen.Auch wenn die Hawks zu Hause sind, kann ich nicht sehen, die Kardinäle mit einem anderen in der Nähe Enttäuschung, wie sie gegen die Niners haben am vergangenen Freitag.Cardinals gewinnen.
TEN 9-0 auf 4-5 JAC
The performance of Kerry Collins last week (30-41, 289 yards, two TDs and no INTs) is making the Titans look all the more legitimate as the league's lone unbeaten team. The Jaguars proved nothing in beating the Lions last weekend 38-14.Titans gewinnen leicht.
SD 4-5 at PIT 6-3
Die Steelers blies es am vergangenen Wochenende zu Hause auf die Colts ... oder sollte ich sagen Ben Roethlisberger vermasselt.Geschichte sollte sagen, dass Ben werden versuchen, für seine Leistung machen, aber ich bin nicht so sicher sein Vertrauen jetzt.Er wurde immer zu oft getroffen, und blies zwei Spiele auf die Manning Brüder zu Hause, die in der Tasche gewesen sein sollte.On the other hand, San Diego has hardly been consistent this year. Steelers win convincingly with their number one defense and a better performance from Big Ben.
DAL 5-4 at WAS 6-3
Dieses Spiel ist die Rückkehr in die Dallas Lineup von Tony Romo.Dieses Team hat in einem ganz binden, seit er nach links.Suchen Sie nach Romo, eine riesige Spiel haben und vielleicht setzen sein Team auf dem Rücken.Die Indianer kommen aus ihren schlimmsten offensive Leistung seit ihrem Woche eine Niederlage gegen die Giants nachdem er nur sechs Punkten in der Woche neun Montagabend Verlust nach Pittsburgh.Ihre Punkte kam von zwei Field Goals, nachdem sie drei-und-out, wenn sie zurückgewonnen und Öffnen ABSEITS TRITT Versuch der Steelers, und weitere drei-und-out nach einer INT auf Ben Roethlisberger.Look for the return of the Dallas high-octane offense along with the defensive play calling of Wade Phillips to take down the Redskins in Washington.
CLE 3-6 at BUF 5-4
Die Rechnungen wurden nicht leben bis zu dem Hype der letzten zwei Wochen.Und die Tatsache, dass sie drei ihrer vier bis Miami, New York und New England (in Reihenfolge), die alle Teil Gegner verloren, verheißt nichts Gutes.Brady Quinn war in seinem ersten Start gehen 23-35, 239 Meter, mit zwei TDs und keine Beanstandungen gegen Denver am vergangenen Donnerstag solide.Allerdings werde ich die Rechnungen auf der nationalen Bühne zu Hause einnehmen.
In just four and a half seasons, DeAngelo Hall is already on his third NFL team.
The Washington Redskins agreed to a one year deal worth just over $800,000 with cornerback DeAngelo Hall on Friday November 7 th , who had just been waived by the Oakland Raiders. It didn't take too long for the Pro Bowler to find himself a new home. Although there has been a consensus that Hall has been underachieving this past half-season in Oakland, and the previous year in Atlanta, when looked at closely, it is easy to see why Hall can be a good fit for the Redskins.
First of all, Washington has been suffering from injuries in the secondary, and namely at cornerback; starter Shawn Springs, nickel back Fred Smoot, and backup Leigh Torrence. And although none of the three has been injured for extended periods of time, they have all been injured frequently and sporadically enough that the Redskins could not pass up this opportunity.
Aside from the injury bug in Washington, there is also the stable of wide receivers the Redskins have to face twice each year within their division. The New York Giants sport big game and big height, six foot five inch, Plaxico Burress. We all know about Dallas and Terrell Owens, but now with the pickup of big game, and six foot three, Roy Williams, the necessity for a player of Hall's talents is ever more of the essence. Finally, the Eagles have a budding star in rookie DeSean Jackson, whose 34 receptions for 525 yards have him on pace to reach 1,050 total, and a quarterback in Donovan McNabb who has shown a propensity to do more with less over his career.
As long as DeAngelo Hall can resume the level play during his Pro Bowl garnering seasons, then the Redskins will have made a good choice. If not, they don't lose much as they only signed him for the remainder of this season.
Kerry Collins has hardly put up the numbers of a quarterback one can rely on. How long until the Titans need a quarterback who can pick up the slack when the defense needs help?
The Tennessee Titans have been the poster child of consistency thus far in the NFL. I mean, when you keep winning, it doesn't get anymore consistent than that. However, they have had the luxury of a soft schedule for the better part of the 2008 season.
So far they've beaten the underachieving Jaguars, recently first-win getting Bengals, choppy Houston Texans, similar Minnesota Vikings at home, barely came back to beat the Ravens with a dismal 13-10 final score, atrocious Kansas City Chiefs, struggling Colts, and got pushed into overtime at home to the promising 4-4 Green Bay Packers. This week, they get to play the Bears with Rex Grossman.
This team has received as much hype thus far as it has a favorable schedule. But seriously, how far can a 35 year old quarterback in Kerry Collins, sporting a 72.9 QB rating overall, with 3 total TD passes versus 3 INT passes expect to get? I know old-timers like Favre and Warner are still capable, but they are probably the first older quarterbacks to have Super Bowl potential since Randal Cunningham with the Vikings.
I know defense wins championships, but in recent history, the only team that can be considered to have become Super Bowl Champs solely on defense and good running with a game managing quarterback are the 2000 Baltimore Ravens who had Trent Dilfer.
Vince Young's personal issues are a delicate matter. But after failing to improve in his second season, plus the issues in his third, then the Titans could be in trouble.
I see this team falling hard at some point in this season and eventually turning the ball over to Vince Young. Even then, that is not a safe bet. It will be interesting to see how the Titans look entering the playoffs.
This one is a true toss-up. The Bronco defense is atrocious, and the Browns have Brady Quinn starting. Inexperience surrounded by some talent and a home crowd versus a lost, but not found defense, wins the game.
NO 4-4 at ATL 5-3
It seems as though now the Falcons have become a team that is consistent at what they do. Not to say what they do makes them an elite team. However, the things they are doing are playing solid and potentially explosive offense and better defense than the Saints. Falcons win.
TEN 8-0 at CHI 5-3
Rex Grossman is in, and that doesn't look good for Chicago. Plus their defense has had a tendency to let opponents back in the game and put up some solid numbers. But I feel Kerry Collins has been getting lucky as the Packers and Colts, the Titans two previous opponents respectively, have eached let three interceptions slip away. The Bears don't let those kinds of opportunities pass by, Grossman has something to prove, the Bears are at home… Bears hand Titans their first loss.
JAC 3-5 at DET 0-8
The Jags continue to play to the level of their opponent. The Lions have been getting closer to their first win of the season. Can they do it against the Jags? Not so optimistic. But with Jack Del Rio questioning his team's chemistry, and upset is in the making. However, I believe the Jags will get their act together in this one and win.
BAL 5-3 at HOU 3-5
The Ravens defense gave up a lot of yardage and points last week to the Browns, but they are familiar with the Ravens as they play in the same division. On the other side, the Texans look good in some games, and don't continue their production even in their losses. Ravens win with Joe Flacco seeming to get more comfortable as the weeks go by.
SEA 2-6 at MIA 4-4
Miami looks a like a squad that is truly building an identity, while the 'Hawks are failing to give Mike Holmgren a going-away party to be proud of. Dolphins win easily at home.
BUF 5-3 at NE 5-3
New England looked solid against the Colts last Sunday night, as did Matt Cassel. The Bills show their true colors as a team that started 4-0 due to a soft schedule and a visiting west coast team in the Chargers. Pats win.
STL 2-6 at NYJ 5-3
Brett Favre is still mistake prone, but with the way the Rams played last weekend, I think the Jets can afford some mistakes in this one. Jets win.
CAR 6-2 at OAK 2-6
Boy do the Raiders ever look like trash. They have two wins, and yet the Lions and Bengals are much more competitive than they are as of late. The “under the radar” Panthers win easy.
IND 4-4 at PIT 6-2
Both teams had big wins last week that boosted confidence after big losses the week prior. However, Pittsburgh's “Blitzburgh” defense is hitting it's stride and coming into its own. Steelers win at home, with either Roethlisberger or Leftwich at the helm.
KC 1-7 at SD 3-5
What better way for the Chargers to get healthy this weekend than a date at home against the Chiefs. Even though the Chiefs showed spirit last week, they'll still lose to the Chargers.
NYG 7-1 at PHI 5-3
The Eagles may be returning to form, but the fact remains that the Giants are a better team all around. Giants win despite the Eagles being at home.
SF 2-6 at ARI 5-3
What a shame this game had to be on Monday Night Football. Too bad they can't move the schedule around on Mondays. Cardinals win, and San Fran will not be mustering any “Monday Night Magic.”
DeAngelo Hall is looking for a new place to call his home. But whose looking?
With the reasoning for the decision to waive two-time Pro Bowl cornerback DeAngelo Hall by the Raiders being unclear, it is a little harder to round out teams that will want to pick him up. If he was cut due to character issues, then there are teams who, based on tradition, will most likely do nothing more than ponder the idea like Pittsburgh or Green Bay. Then there are teams like Dallas. They have already made some heady and questionable moves this season and I wouldn't count out Jerry Jones and Co. to seize the opportunity. But then again, who knows for sure why he was cut?
I'm sure Antoine Winfield won't mind having a fellow Pro Bowler like DeAngelo Hall by his side.
Based off of that, I would not be surprised if the Vikings picked him up as well. This is a team that has already made a big defensive move picking up Jared Allen in the off-season, and to add a corner of Hall's caliber to an already great number one corner in Antoine Winfield would probably create one of the league's most formidable duos at the position.
I also feel that New England has been missing Asante Samuel, so I wouldn't count them out of the picture. The other teams I would put in the mix would be the Carolina Panthers as they would like to become the top D in the NFC south with the Falcons and Buccaneers defenses playing well for the most part.
Finally, I would go with Arizona as a very strong possibility. The Cardinals by now have to know that they are pretty much a lock to win their division, barring an upset this Monday Night at home in the desert by the 49ers. If they wish to matchup better with the true contenders and upstarts of the league then a strong corner like DeAngelo Hall would help them tremendously.
If you are worried about your fantasy squad and need to make a couple of big moves to separate yourself from the competition or put yourself back in the race, you've came to the right place. I have complied a list of players who have great fantasy value and potential for the rest of your season.
NFL WEEK 10 Top Free Agent pickups:
Ryan Torain RB Denver Broncos
Torain, Ryan RB Denver Broncos-
Has been suggested to be the Bronco's starting back for week 10. Ryan has great speed and size and will definitely get all the short yardage carries for the broncos for the remainder of the season. Ryan is very highly thought of, and was originally expected to get the starting position in week 1. This is the type of pickup that could completely change your season. So you better pick him up now, because I am sure in at least 80% of leagues he won't be available next week.He is currently available in around Half the fantasy leagues out there so go get him. Its an very simple move. If you need a RB this most indefinable should be your guy for the week 10. He should have a pretty good game against the below average San Diego Chargers.
Cedric Benson RB Cincinnati Bengals
Benson, Cedric RB Cincinnati Bengals
Had a great game last weekend against a pretty stout Jacksonville defense. He has proven that people can change, becoming a better player. He is currently owned in only 47% of Fantasy leagues out there, so definitely pick this fool up. After posting a 24 carry 104 yard 1 TD performance, he won't fly under the radar for much longer. After his departure from the Bears, we think he has had a wake up call and is now running, practicing, and playing with more purpose. I have picked him up already for my team and would without any doubts tell you to do the same. Cedric Benson could be a key piece for your 2nd half of your fantasy season. He is on the bye this week, so you can pick him up now if you have the roster space
Brady Quinn, QB Cleveland Browns
Quinn, Brady QB Cleveland Browns
Oh he is pretty dreamy isn't he? Yeah well the fact of the matter is if your struggling at QB you might want to get this guy, considering he has be named the Starter for the Browns for Week 10. Brady has looked good whenever we have had the chance to see him. He has had a hell of career playing football, and finally he is getting his much awaited shot. He has a rocket arm and a very quick release which makes him a fantasy stud when he has weapons like Braylon Edwards and Kellen Winslow. This guy is not a sleeper either so if you believe in him, just like Mike Golic does pick him up. Mike Golic is not the only fantasy player who has a man crush on Quinn so make sure you pull the trigger.
Carnell Williams RB Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Williams, Carnell RB Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Cadillac is back! Expect to see him return in Week 12. Tampa Bay Bucs starter Earnest Graham has fallen to a nagging Knee issue, and Warrick Dunn has a neck problem, so the need for him is there. He had one of the worst injuries last season I have ever seen, but once again do to modern technology they have rebuilt this guy with more pistons then ever. Also gruden loves this guy and we all know he plays favoriates!! Pick him up if you have the roster space!
My Fantasy Football Prediction:
CADILLAC is going to run me into another fantasy Football Championship!
Jamaal Charles Kansas City Cheifs RB
Charles, Jamal RB Kansas City Cheifs
Had a great outing last week, producing 108 yards on 18 carries. This guy is the named starter for week 10 against the Soft San Diego defense, which may give up a lot of yardage against the Chiefs rushing attack. Pick this guy up for this week only, since Larry Johnson should be back come week 11 as long as he doesn't do anything stupid.
If you need a wide out-
Try to get Derrick Mason, Antonio Byrant, Steve Breaston, Mark Clayton, and Anthony Gonzalez.
If Brett Favre can cut down on his mistakes for at least one week he can put his team in great position to perhaps win the AFC East. But the Buffalo Bills have shown more consistency and are better all around than the Jets. For this, the Bills should win at home.
DET 0-7 at CHI 4-3
The last time these two teams met was in week five when Kyle Orton torched the Lions for 334 yards and two TDs with no turnovers. Expect to see more of the same. Bears move to 5-3.
JAC 3-4 at CIN 0-8
The Bengals are a team in absolute despair. They may very well be worse than the 0-7 Lions as they are 32 nd in scoring with 13 points per game (while the Lions are 28 th with 16.3 per game). However, Carson Palmer returns and I'm feeling that the inconsistent Jaguars, who have shown over the years a propensity to play down to the level of their opponent, will be the prime candidate for this team to get its first win against. Bengals win.
BAL 4-3 at CLE 3-5
This is a tough one. Joe Flacco is improving and the Baltimore defense is playing as good as ever minus their 31-3 loss to the Colts. Meanwhile, the Browns have picked up their defense and Derek Anderson has been getting closer to what he looked like last year. I will take the Browns at home in a close game.
TB 5-3 at KC 1-6
Tampa Bay has a great opportunity to get back in the win column versus the lowly Chiefs. As long as Jeff Garcia can protect the ball, the Bucs should win this one. I'll take Tampa Bay.
HOU 3-4 at MIN 3-4
Even though Minnesota is coming off a bye and playing at home, I am taking the Texans in this matchup. The Vikings can't keep a streak going, while the Texans seem to be getting things back together as they are the second hottest team after the 7-0 Titans.
ARI 4-3 at STL 2-5
The Cardinals have been unable to solve their road woes where they have only won when they played the lowly 49ers in San Francisco back in week one. However, they weren't far off last week losing 23-27 and owning the lead for the better part of the game against Carolina. The Rams have been more competitive with Jim Haslett at the helm, but I'm picking the Cards to snag the “W.”
GB 4-3 at TEN 7-0
The 31-21 win the Titans earned against Indy last Monday night was huge. They are looking like one of the strongest teams in the league. But Green Bay did a number on the Colts as well in week 7 winning 34-14 and forcing two pics by Manning just like the Titans on Monday. Although the Titans have better defense (1 st in pts per game), the Packers make up for the yardage they give up ranking 16 th in points with sacks and INTs. I'll take the play of Aaron Rodgers over Kerry Collins to win this game for Green Bay.
MIA 3-5 at DEN 4-3
Get ready for the problems in Denver to unfold even further when they blow it against the strong ground game and 100.5 QB rating and 69.3% completion percentage that Chad Pennington is sporting thus far. Dolphins win big in Denver.
DAL 5-3 at NYG 6-1
The moment in the NFC East that we've all been waiting for has finally arrived. Too bad it won't truly show who the better team is if Brad Johnson is playing as Tony Romo looks to be a potential game-time decision… but just potentially. What's worse is that Dallas' three top corners are out as well, and no name rookie Orlando Scandrick will be called upon to pick up the slack which is great news for Eli Manning. Even if Romo comes in, he'll still be favoring his right pinkie. Giants win.
ATL 4-3 at OAK 2-5
Atlanta looked sloppy in their loss to the Eagles last week, but they looked “rookie quarterback” sloppy. All Matt Ryan has to do to get his team a win against the sometimes feisty Raiders is keep his mistakes to a minimum. But even that might not be enough as I feel the Raiders will pull it out.
PHI 4-3 at SEA 2-5
Don't look now, but Seattle with a 2-5 record is second in its division behind 4-3 Arizona. The Eagles have been somewhat inconsistent this season and a win against a young Atlanta team last week cannot really be taken as proof that they have solved their issues. Expect a tough battle out of both teams with the Eagles pulling out a close one.
NE 5-2 at IND 3-4
Who would have thought that with Brady gone that the Patriots would have a better record than the Colts this far into the season? Make that a records that is two more wins and two less losses better! This is a tough game to call. Matt Cassel may have led his team to victory last weekend and first place in the AFC East, but he still tossed two pics. But on the other end, the Colts' offense seems out of sync as Manning tossed two pics as well. Both team's starting running backs are out, Laurence Maroney for New England, and Joseph Addai for Indy, and both defenses have been questionable. Bottom line, until Cassel shows some more consistency I have to go with Peyton Manning and his team in this one.
PIT 5-2 at WAS 6-2
This is the game where the Redskins get to prove they're no fluke. They may have beaten Dallas and Philly, but as the season has progressed, those two wins don't look like such a surprise anymore. The Steelers are reeling after a mistake-filled, give-the-game-away performance to the Giants last weekend. But… I expect the mistakes to mount for the Steelers which derive mainly from an O-line that can't block and gets called for penalties, while the Redskins will do what they've been doing thus far this season… rise to the occasion against another team that is perceived to be a contender.
The Titans are 7-0 without the help of Vince Young this year but I think the real reason Vince Young isn't starting is not because of his skills it is because of his smarts. Kerry Collins is a manger for the Titans and there is no implication or even thought that he will replace Vince young in the long run. Vince is a superior talent all round and his skills are not what's in question. It seems to me that Vince young just is not smart enough to hold and retain the information it takes to be a great QB. His learning curve seems to be very low. The Titans have been unable in 3 years with Vince to put together an entire playbook under Vince's command. This is because Vince is just taking too long to learn these things. Eventually he will and that is the reason he is sitting this year, to give him more time to focus on learning the plays and calls it takes to bring a QB to the next level.
It is no Secret that Vince Young has managed to play well in the NFL but this is off of raw talent and instinct. Vince's scores on the wonderlic test at the combine were telling of this but most teams ignored his very low scores, (I mean the scores almost said he was retarded) because of his upside, and rightfully so. But it seems that those scores were telling, of what Vince's situation is now. Simply put Vince Young is just not smart enough to pick up the information needed to Start for a NFL team at QB and play right away as well. He should have sat his first 2 years so that he could learn and then start the 3 rd not the other way around which is the case right now. Now don't get me wrong Vince is going to be a great QB he practically is right now, but he cannot progress to the next level until he gains enough knowledge to run an entire NFL offense.
I was watching football Sunday, and I began to realize something. Today we have big baby, players who only care about money and “loving me some me”. The true team concept may be fading away, in some professional sports. I remember when I would idolized all the players from the past who could play hurt and persevere through any type of pain, injuries and Media criticisms and still maintain their dignity. I mean does any one remember when Ronnie Lott had his finger amputated just so he could play in a playoff game? Could you see any pro Football player doing that now a days? If you dumb let me help you with that answer, NO!
Ronnie Lott's career and story should be taught to all children. His commitment to winning and to his team, should be respected and emulated by all modern day players.
How come today's players have fallen so far from that “old school winning mentality” of whatever it takes? I mean it really can't help that these players are getting 10 million dollar deals before they step foot on the field as rookies, or the fact that players are so babied when it comes to the medical care they receive. All I can think about right now is what I would say to Kellen Winslow Jr, after the grief he caused me this week. Seriously this cry baby is costing me points and I would tell him, “Seriously Kellen, you got a staph infection OK. If you want to blame it on your top Tier medical staff on your NFL football team, go right ahead. I mean hanging out with R. Kelly definitely had nothing to do with this right? Seriously, Kellen lets cry about it some more, oh I am here to listen. You know what F*** it, Kellen How are you going to play on my fantasy squad it is always about you? I want Players who want to win, I need team players. Kellen, You're embarrassing yourself , and you could seriously help this team win more if you just showered up.” Seriously Kellen go into the rap industry and show that your a straight soldier or strap it up like you father did, and play and act like a man.
Also, whatever happened to “I can play” “I am going to play”. I mean Plax can't practice but he sure can play in a game if he feels like it, right? I mean come on I think big blue should buy him like 3 or 4 cell phones because maybe he really can't hear the one in his pants, since he is like 4 feet above it. Either way, Plax should be put on some sort of house arrest, because he obviously is way too arrogant to just show up to practice if he can and in the event that he can't practice he makes habits of not showing to his medical appointments. I am starting to think Plax was the kid who always called in sick when he had a test in school or something. To be honest, thought, I am sick of watching Plaxico Burress, Hines Ward, Chad Johnson, constantly taking practices off. At this rate, I wouldn't be surprised if in the future NFL practices would be viewed as purely optional.
Regardless, I saw something that really grabbed me and made me feel a lot better though. There was a inkling of hope! The NFL has a new angel. This angel is the 49ers's new head coach and NFL Legend, Mike Singletary. He made a great post game speech that everyone should watch. His attitude pays tribute to an era of football , which could only be described as great. Therefore, his speech hit home with me. I want to Salute Mike Singletary, who is a man I believe in. This team has the right man in the job not because he has all the football answers. Nope not at all. he is not the right man because he has an elite knowledge of defensive formations and schemes. He is the right guy for the 49ers job, however, because he doesn't accept stupid “Me” “I” personality types. Regardless of what the media or the owners will say. He does not and will not accept losing. He wants to change the attitude of a losing team, and I believe with this speech he started his process of doing so.
He called out a “superstar” in Vernon Davis, who is also known as “Click Clack Davis” for his bs commercials. He is also likes to be called the “Cyborg”. He let Vernon know that he is not above the team. This is comical, because this player has his head so far up his a** and he didn't even know till today. Vernon I am renaming you VD . Your like the 49ers infected draft pick, because your attitude about you is killing your team. Either way, I respect Coach Singletary calling Vernon out and making the speech he did. He might be the only hope to infusion some good ol bone crunching sweat and tears back into the NFL, in hopes to bring it back to the way things were, tough and gritty. You know back when whining wasn't acceptable in Football!
This is just embarassing for Football Fans everywhere.
Oakland has been one feisty team as of late. I expect them to remain feisty, but it won't be enough to overcome the Baltimore defense and improving play of QB Joe Flacco.
ARI 4-2 at CAR 5-2
Carolina slaughtered the inconsistent Saints last week winning 30-7. The Cardinals come off a huge win against Dallas and a bye week. I look to see Carolina showing some consistency. I'll go with Carolina.
TB 5-2 at Dallas 4-3
Tampa is slowly coming into view from being under the radar. Either way, I don't think Dallas is a smart enough team, collectively, to see this. I think they'll lose at home!
WAS 5-2 at DET 0-6
Washington won already.
BUF 5-1 at MIA 2-4
Miami's head-turning victories against the Pats and Chargers are becoming more and more distant with losses to the Texans and Ravens. The surging Bills continue to surge!
STL 2-4 at NE 4-2
Expect to see a partially competitive game. St. Louis has improved under Jim Haslett, but the Patriots look like they will be playing smart football for most of the remainder of this season. New England wins it.
SD 3-4 at New Orleans 3-4… in London
It's funny. Both teams are highly inconsistent but have massive potential and both share equal records. This game won't prove who's ready to turn things around since they're both so unpredictable. Both have great offense, but I'll take the Chargers who have better defense.
KC 1-5 at NYJ 3-3
The Jets need to make up for that “barn burner” in Oakland. One would think this is a great opportunity for them to do so, but who knows? I'll still take the Jets at home against the struggling, running back-less, and quarterback-less Chiefs.
ATL 4-2 at PHI 3-3
Both of these teams are coming off of a bye. Even though Philadelphia looks to right its ship after a few stunning defeats this season, I just have a feeling that Atlanta is coming in confident while Philly is thinking it's a team they should beat as long as they play well. Atlanta pulls the upset.
CLE 2-5 at JAC
Cleveland looked like they were righting the ship when they blasted the Giants on Monday Night Football. However, their showing in Washington last weekend wasn't promising and Jacksonville is not a team to play around with. Jaguars win.
CIN 0-7 at HOU 2-4
Houston looks like they're ready to keep opponents on their toes finally. But the Bengals aren't a team you worry about keeping on their toes. Texans win at home.
NYG 5-1 at PIT 5-1
The Steelers will be without Willie Parker, and Santonio Holmes. But they do have Casey Hampton returning to help stop the Giants powerful run game. Eli's stats have dipped lately and I think that will continue this week, and while both teams are getting to the quarterback at a high rate, I will go with the Steelers just because they're at home.
SEA 1-5 at SF 2-5
In all honesty, the Niners should win this game. But in all honesty, both teams are pretty bad. Still, the Niners are a few notches more consistent than the Seahawks. San Fran wins.
IND 3-3 at TEN 6-0
It's make or break time for the Colts. I believe it's wake up time for the Titans who have been riding a fairly easy schedule. I'll take the Colts to pull off what most people will call an upset by getting the victory.

Before the start of the 2008 NFL season there were four sure-fire Super Bowl favorites; the Dallas Cowboys, San Diego Chargers, Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots. So far after seven weeks only the Patriots seem to have any type of competitive balance with a 4-2 record and only one game behind AFC East leading Buffalo Bills at 5-1.
The aforementioned teams have not faired so well and are a combined 10-10.
Even though Tony Romo is out, there is no excuse for the lack of effort the Cowboys showed in their 34-14 blowout in St. Louis. They have allowed two upstart teams, the Redskins and Cardinals, and a bottom-feeder in St. Louis get wins against them. Even though Romo was in against the two upstarts, he has averaged at least one turnover per game.
The Chargers have been the epitomy of inconsistency through seven games going loss, loss, win, win, loss, win, loss en-route to a 3-4 record. Traveling east has not helped them as they go forward three time zones every time. Now they have to go eight time zones to play the Saints in London this weekend!
The Colts are lucky they aren't 1-5 instead of 3-3. Aside from blowing out the Baltimore Ravens 31-3 in week six, they had to overcome a 15-0 hole in Minnesota, and needed 21 points in the last four minutes of week five to beat the Texans.
Unlike the Patriots, the Cowboys are two games behind NFC East leading Giants at 5-1, the Chargers are essentially two games behind the AFC West leading Broncos (since the Broncos beat them), and the Colts are already three games behind the AFC South leading Titans. Now I ask… Do these three teams really sound like Championship Contenders?
Die Woche sieben Ausgabe von Monday Night Football 2008 war nicht das, was die meisten Zuschauer wohl erwartet hatte.Sie erwarteten, um zu sehen, die hoch angepriesen Broncos Straftat Rack bis Lauflänge und wenn die Patriots waren, um eine Chance in diesem Spiel, das sie hätte irgendwie hinter der Unerfahren Wurfarm von Matt Cassel halten haben.
However, the Broncos turned the ball over five different times and gave up huge rushing lanes to Sammy Morris and the other representatives of the New England backfield. Matt Cassel was able to complete an efficient outing going 18 for 24 passing, 185 yards, 3 TDs and no interceptions.Und was mehr ist, dass die Patriots haben Schritt mit den 5-1 Buffalo Bills nach Steigerung ihrer Rekord auf 4-2 gehalten.
The Pats may not be a favorite Super Bowl pick anymore after the season ending injury of Tom Brady but they are doing what most coaches preach as the best way to secure a playoff berth, and that's win your division. If the veteran talent of the New England Patriots can continue to support Matt Cassel and win some games, they may be able to surpass the young roster of the Buffalo Bills at the end of the season.
This may be a season where Tony Dungy has no answers.
The Indianapolis Colts have proven to be an up-and-down team this season. They have lost a close game to the Jaguars at home, have had to pull off 4 th quarter comebacks to beat the Vikings and the Texans (which was a wild one-in-a-thousand type comeback), and have been blown out by a pair of NFC North teams in the Bears and Packers. There only convincing win has come against a team they usually beat and who was sporting a rookie quarterback in the Ravens.
Manning is suffering through his worst completion percentage since he was a rookie at 60.7%, has 8 TDs w/ 7 INTs, with an 80 rating.
In the past the Colts have been able to get away with torrid defense because they had a strong run game to back up their passing attack. However, this year their running game has been downright terrible. They are averaging an even 70 yards per game on the ground which is last in the league. Oppositely, they are 29 th on defense against the run in giving up 153.5 yards per game.
This is not the stuff of a recent Super Bowl champion, even if they do not have Bob Sanders who vaulted them to that title in the 06 playoffs. One would think that by now they could at least play average defense seeing as how experienced their unit is, but that has not been the case this season.
This has been one of the weirdest teams to follow so far and with their second toughest schedule based on opponents' winning percentages the year prior, the future seems bleak… bleak as in no playoffs.
Reggie bush admitted to the public that he will be getting arthroscopic knee surgery soon. The Saints are hopeful that the surgery only shows the assumed problem the meniscus in his left knee. He should be fine to go, they think in 3 to 4 weeks. There have also been some reports that he will could be back in 2 to 3 weeks. Bush was injured this week late in the 2nd Quarter while returning a punt. It is really a shame, Reggie was coming on strong, and now he is riding the pine. The only positive in this situation is that due to the timing of the injury Reggie will get an extra week of free rest, due to the week 9 bye for the Saints. The Saints have definitely been bit by the injury bug this year.
If you can definatly pick up Big Macallister for the time being. He is only owned in 70 % of fantasy leagues, so it is worth the time to check. He will be very productive for the next couple of weeks considering Bush's absence.
SD at BUF-I'm sure by now everyone's noticed the western teams don't do too well when they travel to the far east. But I think San Diego's got this.
NO at CAR-New Orleans is so inconsistent. But I think they'll get it together in Carolina.
MIN at CHI-Both teams have good defense, good running games, and averaging passing games. I'll take the team at home… Chicago.
PIT at CIN-Cincinnati is reeling and Big Ben is 5-0 all time in Cincinnati. Steelers win.
TEN at KC-Kansas City won't even have Larry Johnson for this game. Titans win.
BAL at MIA-Miami is rolling too hard offensively for Joe Flacco to keep up with and pretty soon this Ravens' defense will begin to slack since they have no offensive help.
SF at NYG-The giants blew it last week, but they can't lose to this 2-4 trash at home. Giants win.
DAL at STL-Romo or Johnson?Wer weiß?The Cowboys are reeling losing two of their last three. I just have a feeling this is an upset in the making. Rams win.
DET at HOU-Houston can at least play competitively and have shown offense. Detroit's only close game was last week when they lost 10-12. Houston should shred them.
IND at GB-Even though Indianapolis seemed to hit its stride last week, Aaron Rodgers is playing pretty stellar and the Packer defense is better than the Colts'. I'll go with Green Bay.
NYJ at OAK-Brett Favre is undefeated in Oakland all-time. That shall remain the same.
CLE at WAS-Both teams were complete opposites from one another last week. Washington was on the rise and lost to a bottom dweller, while Cleveland was a disappointment and beat a championship contender. Now that they've got their heads on straight, I'll take Washington.
SEA at TB-Seattle is 1-4 and has been downright atrocious on both sides of the ball. Tampa wins.
DEN at NE-Denver has been inconsistent the last few weeks but the Patriots have been the same. I'll take the Pats at home against Belichick's football IQ.
Will Drew Brees stellar production continue this weekend in Carolina? He is currently averaging 332 yards per game through the air and is on pace to throw for over 5,300 yards. Even though that shouldn't happen, it's still pretty darn good for six weeks of play and he'll definitely reach over 4,000.
The Panthers have lost buzz due to their egg in Tampa this past weekend. They've also maintained a trend of high pre-season promise and regular season inconsistency they started when John Fox arrived in Carolina. 11-5, 7-9, 11-5, 8-8, 7-9 are the season records since 2003 when Fox became head coach. So far this year they are 4-2 and the trend would suggest they make the playoffs. But seriously, the Panthers are at home and could convincingly beat the Saints.
The Panthers may even be able to settle Brees down with their 2 nd ranked passing defense and against the 25 th ranked rushing offense of the Saints, that is all they may need to do to get the upset.
John Fox may resemble this photo if his team allows Drew Brees to pick them apart.
Either way, this should be an exciting matchup as both teams are fighting to keep pace with 4-2 Tampa Bay in the NFC South who faces a real barn burner at home against the Seahawks this weekend.
Jerry Jones does it again. Today he made a move to acquire all the Roy Williams in the final hours before the NFL trade deadline. Jerry now has A DB and a WR who share the same name. Yuppie!!! Sorry Jerry, this move is just flat out stupid. This is the type of trade where he will either look like a genius or look like a retard. We are pulling for retard. Sportsroids believes that the move won't help him in win this year and is going to destroy his team in the future. Yes you're getting a top talent wide-out. Yes he is better than Crayton or Austin. But why would you give up a 1st,3rd and 6th round picks for this guy? Not to mention now he has to learn a new playbook and system. Seriously Jerry what were you thinking? I bet it was something like this, “Ok, we just lost Pacman Jones, and Terrance Newman has been hurt, and our biggest issue is that our defensive backfield is in disarray. Oh wait I know! Lets get a new pre-madonna wide receiver, that will fix it!”.My question is, “How can better the team next year if you have only a 2nd round pick? I can't wait to see TO loose his mind because of Roy Williams, I can't wait to see it. Obvoiusly Jerry Jones thinks TO might fly the coup pretty soon if he is doing this. If Owen's catches decrease and they loose its going to be WW3 in Dallas. On second thought, maybe the move was to scare TO into not exploding, but I doubt it. I love TO and all he wants is to win, and its his competitive nature is what makes him good. Jerry, don't try to step on that. You'll loose that battle Jerry. Hey don't you think Jerry is starting to look a little like Al Davis. Maybe he should just slow down, and realize that he already has enough star power to get people talking about the cowboys and learn how and where to buy the right pieces to make his organization unstoppable. Roy Williams is a WR with great potential yet he has much to prove. Roy has only posted one 1000+ yard season in his 5 year career. Seriously 1st, 3rd and 6th round picks!!! Oh yeah they resigned Roy to a new contract as well. Its a 5 year contract!! Jerry your nuts!
How' bout those cowboys? Personally, I think they are all bark no bite!
HEY JERRY !!! SPORTSROIDS has something to say to you…..
Dallas Cowboys Owner, Jerry Jones
Bad moves = Bad News Jerry! You just doomed your team's future.
The Buffalo Bills have been a topic of discussion all season long. Their early success has created much buzz about them being shoe-ins for the AFC East title. I don't see why that is though. Sure, they were 4-0, and they went down in Arizona while JP Losman played most of the game. However, JP Losman didn't give up 41 points. At the end of week 7, the look of the AFC East will be a lot different and it can all culminate fair ly easy.
Trent Edwards is still young but he still has a chance to win this division.
In week 7, the Jets are playing in Oakland who looked like they had no spirit when they played the Saints this past weekend losing 34-3. If the Jets win, they are 4-2 and that would be no surprise if they did.
New England plays host to Denver on Monday Night Football. This game should not be easy for New England to win. They'll have to grind it out big time. However, they're at home in front of a national audience and if they do pull it off, they're 4-2 as well.
This is one marriage that could develop into a healthy relationship.
Miami hosts the Ravens who have a great D and little-to-no offense. If they win, they'll be 3-3.
Finally, those loveable Bills play host to the San Diego Chargers. Albeit the Chargers are only 3-3, they are still a good 3-3. If the Bills lose, they'll be 4-2. Now picture this possible version of the AFC East standings at the end of Week 7;
Doesn't look too clear cut anymore now, does it? I didn't think so.
Woche sechs in der NFL wieder einmal bewiesen, wie die Art der Liga ändert sich von Woche zu Woche.One good example of this is three of the four teams in the NFC North.
Das eine Team, das nicht "count" hat ist die Detroit Lions.Sie sind eher traurig immer von einem Gesamtergebnis von 159 bis 76 zertrümmert ihre ersten vier Spiele und verlieren um durchschnittlich 16,6 Punkte, die mehr als drei Noten ist.They are immediately excluded from this conversation.
I guess Adrian Peterson is looking up as are things for the Vikings after their 1-3 start.
Aaron Rodgers could make a statement for his team and for himself by beating Indianapolis this weekend.
The Bears looked to be in good shape in reaching a 3-2 record and playing the Falcons this past Sunday. However, they lost and dropped to 3-3. The Vikings are the opposite at 3-3 and looked to be in good shape since they were 1-3 and have now won two in a row to match the Bears.Die zwei Gesicht an diesem Wochenende in Chicago, und der Sieger des Spiels wird für den Geschäftsbereich Blei oder in ersten mit einem 4-3 Rekord Sperre eine Krawatte binden.
Inzwischen haben die Packers, nach einem Sturz drei geraden, bekam einen Auswärtssieg in Seattle und erreicht 3-3.Allerdings sehen sie sich die Colts in Green Bay an diesem Wochenende und könnte leicht zu verlieren und fallen auf 3-4.Wenn sie gewinnen, werden sie behalten ihre Stromaufteilung führen 4-3 (Green Bay hält Server über die Wikinger und Bären wie sie sind 2-0 in ihrer Division).
Week seven is huge in the NFC and will do just what week six did… change the look of another NFL division after just one week of games.
Plaxico Burress Catches a TD against the Browns on Monday Night Football
It is 12:20 am on October 14th, and I have just watched the worst Red-zone performance of all time. The one thing about the New York Giants that just doesn't seem to be good this year is their red zone stragety. I understand that Plaxico is not in the good graces of the organization, but when you take him out of the game in the red zone in the third quarter it just makes no sense. 6′5 Plaxico Burress who has already proved to be one of the Gaints best red zone targets in the 2008 season, was taken out and Eli Manning threw a pass to Toomer instead, which resulted a costly pick 6. I realize that you can't throw only to one player, However Plax deserves a target in every red zone trip, without fail. This is a man whose jumping abilities and size are unparalleled in the League. The Giants need to get off their high horses and get Plax the ball in the Red-Zone, or risk doing what they did today, just look terrible. I can't help to wonder if this problems in play calling could be in response to Plaxico's recent suspension. Regardless, If you pay a player you better use him as far as I am concerned. Also, trying to intercept a Pass high in the corner of the endzone is nearly impossible, especially if the defender is shorter than the WR by about 6 to 7 inches.
Andre Johnson heute erwiesen sich alle Eigentümer bereit, eine Chance auf ihm zu nehmen, dass er auch das Risiko wert. He racked up 178 Yards today, with 1 TD on 10 catches today against the Miami Dolphins. Viele würden argumentieren, dass er führen die Texaner ihren ersten Sieg der Saison 2009 heute. Andre ist eine perfekte Fantasie WR aus mehreren Gründen. I really feel he is like the younger more gifted T. Owens. Andre hat große Geschwindigkeit und großer Größe sowie große Sprungkraft, wodurch er eine Fantasie # 1 Woche für Woche. Before he was injuried in 2008 he was averaging around 100 yards per game and leader for WR in TD's and yards. Sportsroids möchten alle Fantasy-Football-Besitzer, die die Chance auf dem reparierten Andre Johnson nahm grüßen.
There have been some pliminary reports that TE Tony Gonzalez is looking for a trade to a seroius contender. The teams that he has voiced an interest in included the New York Giants, a team that was at the top of his list. It is very possible that this trade could happen. He could get moved for as little as 3rd or a 5th round pick. Tony Gonzalez is a great player, however to come in right before the Oct 14 trade deadline and learn a entire Offense would be tough. He is at an advanced age but this move could definatly help the Gaints defend thier superbowl title this year. We think this could happen, and you heard it here first.
Kellen Winslow is in the hospital with swelling to his little “Soldiers”. The condition he has is called Hydrocele, which is when fliud accumulates the fleshy membranes that encase the testicles. It can be fixed very with simple surgery, however we don't think Kellen will be able to play this monday. If he is on your fantasy squad barring a miracle you should look towards another TE this week.
Kellen Winslow TE of the Cleveland Browns
However, it is nice to know I have the TE with the biggest balls in the NFL. There have been many reports that they were swollen to the size of Grapefruits on Thursday of this week.
This rookie better play within himself this weekend if his team is going to win.Steve Smith are number one in the NFC South, but must win to remain as such.Look for Kurt Warner to light it up some more this weekend at home against Dallas
Das erste Spiel, dass einige Lager hält, ist die 3-2-Bären an den 3-2 Falcons. Beide Teams haben eine Chance, 4-2 und die beiden Überraschungen in der Liga. Kyle Orton sieht ein wenig besser und seine Verteidigung ist stark wie eh und je, während die Falcons spielen inspiriert Fußball mit Festspiel von einem Rookie QB Matt Ryan, und ein erstes Mal Vollzeitstarter bei RB Michael Turner. Die Verteidigung hat John Abraham, aber nicht viel mehr. Huge-Spiel für die NFC Playoff-Rennen! Ich muss mit dem Bären Erfahrung auf diesen einen gehen.
Baltimore ist Gastgeber für Indianapolis.Beide sind 2-2 und müssen über 0,500 zu erhalten.Die Raben Abwehr kann eng werden, aber die Colts Verteidigung hat nicht so schlecht gewesen, ohne Bob Sanders, und Peyton Manning ist etwas anderes im Vergleich zu Joe Flacco.Colts win.
Carolina wird in Tampa Bay, wo beide Teams bei 4-1 Kampf um die NFC Süd führen.The Bucs offense has been trifle even though they still have a solid defense. The Panthers combine solid defense with above average offense.Ich werde die Panthers zu nehmen.
Schließlich Dallas, 4-1, wird Arizona, 3-2 erfüllen, auf der Straße.Obwohl die Cowboys haben eine stärkere Verteidigung, werde ich mit den Kardinälen, die verärgert abziehen.Die Cowboys kann ein leistungsfähiges Handlung rühmen, aber der Cardinal Straftat kann nur so stark sein.I just have a feeling that Kurt Warner and his team are confident and excited to play the Cowboys who will be caught sleeping.
Dies sind die besten Spiele zwischen Teams basierend auf Aufzeichnungen von Siegen und Niederlagen.
Dallas Cowboy, Adam Jones has apparently been up to his previous antics again. After fighting his own security in a bathroom this past weekend, he may be looking at a fresh new suspension. I wish they had fantasy Fallout football, him and Chris Henry would be 1st and 2nd picks overall. Pac is already on his 2nd strike with commisioner Roger Goodell. It a shame to see that even the mighty Cowboys couldn't save this young man from himself, let alone the story hungry media, who does breath down his neck a lot. I even heard that pacman ties his shoes wrong in a article I read somewhere!(Joke) Either way we as fans are very critical of pacman. There could be several reasons for the public criticisms. I think, mostly it is because he has the athletic talent and is in the position to make millions and it seems he just doesn't care about embracing his opportunity. Realizing that one day Adam will grow up and out of this “I am a tough guy” charade. He will then realize that he was one of the lucky ones. I just hope it happens before it's to late. He might get suspended again by the league, probably ending his career in the NFL. When asked about the new Pacman incident, Roger Goodell stated, “I don't think there is any misunderstanding about the position Adam has put himself in with respect to his behavior,” he said. “There are certain things I expect of him. I would tell you I'm disappointed we're even discussing this.”
On Sunday Sept 14th Justin Fargas was injured in the second qtr of the Oakland vs Kansas City game. They said he had a pulled groin injury, however we at SportsRoids believe he was viciously assaulted by Pat Thomas. SportsRoids, believes that Justin is a victim of a horrific crime. Justin Fargas's genitals public execution has not only effected his pay, but his starting position. He should be paid back the losses not only from the league but also by Pat Thomas. Fines must be handed out. SportsRoid's wishes to have a moment of silence during the next Raiders match up commemorating the player that was.

Defense Wins Championships or Great Quarterbacking?
One of the longest standing arguments in today's NFL has been the viewpoint that it takes a strong defense to become a champion. Over the past few years teams like the Baltimore Ravens, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Pittsburgh Steelers have been able to remain in at least competitive contention, if not championship contention, due to their outstandingly consistent play on defense. However, in this writer's eyes, the most important factor in helping a team turn the corner from respectability to prominence has been the position of quarterback.
Over the past ten years alone, almost every Super Bowl champion has been led by a pro-bowl caliber, if not perennial pro-bowl quarterback. In most cases a good defense played a key role in each winner's success, but on most of those teams, there was strong quarterback play involved as well.
During the 1998 season the Denver Broncos won the title with John Elway, and everyone knows how great he was. In 1999, the St. Louis Rams became league champions behind the light-out play of MVP quarterback Kurt Warner. Everybody will remember the Greatest Show on Turf as one of those teams that had such a great offense, they could overcome sub par-to-average defense to win games. In 2000, the Baltimore Ravens would make a name in history as one of those teams that could overcome average, but not great, offensive play with a tenacious defense that created turnovers and stymied opponents week in and week out with its defense.
Let's use a paragraph too look a little deeper at those 2000 Ravens. That team's defense was so good that it held three regular season opponents to seven points, their Super Bowl opponent to seven points (the New York Giants), one regular season opponent to three points, and three post-season opponents to three points (the Wild Card Denver Broncos and the AFC Championship host Oakland Raiders), and four regular season opponents to zero points. How often does a defense that strong come along? Not too often I would say. I gahter that that the 2000 Ravens and the 1985 Bears were two teams in NFL history that literally succeeded almost an entire season based solely on excellent defense.
In 2001, Tom Brady came along and got his first Super Bowl title when he drove his team downfield to kick a game-winning field goal. In 2002, another team with a great defense raised the Lombardi Trophy and this time it was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, Brad Johnson was Tampa's quarterback that year and in 13 regular season games, finished the season with 22 touchdown passes against six interceptions, a 62.3% completion percentage, and a 92.9 Quarterback rating (the best of his career). The next two years would conclude with Tom Brady's Patriots coming out on top, where-in 2003 Tom Brady led yet another drive downfield for a game-winning field goal, and in 2004 it was Brady and the Patriots who got the trophy.
In 2005 the surprise Pittsburgh Steelers came out on top. Even though it was the defense that showed up in the Super Bowl and not Ben Roethlisberger, it was Big Ben's dazzling play in Cincinnati in the Wild Card round (14-19 passing for 74%, 208 yards, and 3 TDs), in Indianapolis in the Divisional Round (14-24 passing, 197 yards, and 2 TDs with one INT), and in Denver in the AFC Championship Game (21-29 passing, 275 yards, 2 passing TDs, and one rushing TD) that got them there. In this case it was strong defense and strong quarterback play that produced a champion.
In 2006 Peyton Manning and the strong play of the Colts' defense won the title. Finally, last year, even though the Giants had a great pass-rushing defense while leading the league in sacks, nobody would have picked New York to come out on top if it hadn't been for Eli Manning's highly unexpected pro-bowl level of play throughout the post-season, including the Super Bowl.
I want everybody to take a long step back when they think that defense wins championships, because in all reality it takes a solid defense coupled by strong quarterback play to win a Super Bowl, with a few exceptions every now and then on both sides of the ball. So remember, a great defense will bring you respectability, but it takes a great quarterback to take a team to prominence!
It is hard to gauge a team after only one week of play. But that is what Alex V. is going to do anyways. We'll see how I do and I'll even keep track! Week in and week out from here-on-in. We're gonna see who actually gives a shit!
CHI at CAR
The Panthers went toe-to-toe with the Chargers last weekend and showed a lot of heart pulling out a two-minute drill drive to pull out their victory. However, the Bears showed more consistency with their playmaking defense, strong running, and turnover free passing game. I say the Bears win.
TEN at CIN
Cincinnati is a team in shambles. They are starting this season right where they left off last year, and if they don't improve soon they'll easily finish the same way they did last year… going nowhere. The Titans won last week with their usual great defense and key, if not strong, offensive play. Aided by a veteran quarterback in Kerry Collins, and a strong defense, I'm going with the Titans over the defensively challenged and no-offensive chemistry having Bengals.
GB at DET
Detroit showed last week that they have no defense. Even though Michael Turner is highly-touted, there is no excuse for giving up that much yardage against a team who should have the box stacked against them while sporting a rookie quarterback. Aaron Rodgers showed a lot of promise last week, and just about every other piece of a 13-3 team from last year remains this year too. This is an easy one. Packers win.
BUF at JAC
Jacksonville did what they do best last week… play to the level of their opponent. Buffalo looks like a team on the rise. The Jaguars would be hard-pressed to play to the level of Buffalo, because they are running on pure youthful energy and excitement. I'm really feeling Buffalo pulling out the victory in a close contest.
OAK at KC
Honestly, who cares about this game aside from Raiders and Chiefs fans? In reality the NFL is crazy, and both these teams have many weeks to turn out one of the surprise teams of the year. But in a strong AFC, that is so not going to happen. This game is a toss-up! I'll go with the veteran experience of the Chiefs over the undisciplined inexperience of the Raiders.
IND at MIN
Last week, Indy's offense laid an egg against the Bears. On the contrary, the Vikings kept their game versus the Packers last week competitive. Indy is charged with facing another team like they did last week; strong defense, great running game, and desirably a game-managing quarterback. However, I don't think Tarvaris Jackson is ready to lead this team. Surprisingly though, something in my gut tells me upset special once again. I'm going with the Vikings!
NYG at STL
The Rams are another team who have started this season right where they left off last season. The Rams looked like the standard defense they usually are as they missed tackles and gave up big plays, while their inept offense produced just 158 passing yards, and 36 rushing yards to the Eagles 368 passing yards, and 108 rushing yards. The Giants defense looked like they could be just as disruptive as they were last year, even without Michael Strahan and Osi Umenyiora. I won't even bother wasting another sentence analyzing the Rams. Giants win.
NO at WAS
New Orleans looks like they are ready to make good on the promise they displayed in 2006. The Redskins look like a team still trying to see where they stand with Jason Campbell at the helm. Even though the Skins won the last time these teams met, I believe it will be the Saints' offense and improving defense that gets the better of Washington.
SF at SEA
The 49ers started off pretty decently against the Cardinals last week going up 10-3 at one point. However, they finished on the wrong end of a 23-13 score. The Seahawks look like they are on the usual road to mediocrity that they've been traveling the two years before the Super Bowl run, and the two years since. With JT O-Who taking snaps for the Niners, I give this one to Seattle since they play at home and tend to show a little more consistency there than on the road.
ATL at TB
Last week Matt Ryan played solidly going 9 for 13 with 161 yards, one touchdown, and no turnovers. But that was last week. And last week's opponent was the untamed Lions. The Buccaneers will be coming off a crushing season-opening loss against a division rival, like the one they'll be facing this week. And although the Bucs may be getting old, the coaching staff and players should still be wily enough to force the young QB into making a few mistakes. I'll go with the Buccaneers.
MIA at ARI
The Dolphins will have no business improving too much this year. This team should be rebuilding, but they are starting an aging and skill deteriorating Chad Pennington, and have known highly-regarded draft picks. Even though the Cardinals start an older QB in Kurt Warner, at least he can throw deep consistently, whereas Pennington throws either low or to the other team rather consistently. Cardinals are on the rise, so Cardinals are in the “W” column.
SD at DEN
San Diego blew a home opener this weekend by losing. But they allowed that against a team who is easily a contender when Jake Delhomme is in the line-up and, most of all, healthy. Denver looked promising with their blow-out of the Raiders. But Oakland played so badly that it is tough to gauge the Broncos' place in the 2008 season. Until the Broncos beat a worthy opponent, I'll put my money on the Chargers to win this one.
NE at NYJ
This game is funny. It won't b Brady vs. Pennington. It will be Cassel vs. Favre! Even though the Jets showed big play ability against the Dolphins last week, they still could have lost if Pennington would have been able to get Miami into the end zone in the final two minutes of their game last weekend. The Patriots also won in a rather nail biting fashion as they almost let one go into overtime against the Chiefs. Matt Cassel had to settle into a game he didn't have the feel of from the beginning. The Jets are still growing, while every other piece on the Patriots knows where it stands aside from Matt Cassel. I'll go with the Patriots.
PIT at CLE
The Steelers last week looked great in almost every facet of the game; an O-line pushing defensive front, ball-hawking and ball-carrier shadowing linebackers, solid secondary play, and great running mixed in with some efficient passing. Cleveland embarrassed themselves at home last weekend against a heavily favored Super Bowl contender in Dallas. But they still could have put up a better fight than they did last week based on their offensive potency during the 2007 campaign. The Browns are playing at home, on prime-time television Sunday night, and should be looking to make up for their virtual no-show from last week. However, until the Browns beat the Steelers as they haven't managed to once in their last seven meetings, I'm still picking the Steelers.
PHI at DAL
Both teams laid waste to their opponents last week. Donovan McNabb looked great going 21 of 33 for 361 yards, three touchdowns, and no turnovers which shouldn't come as a surprise to people. The only reason he hasn't posted great numbers the last couple seasons is because of injuries and not because he is past his time as a good number of people believe. The Cowboys looked like a team that simply out-matched their opponent with the dynamic play of Tony Romo, great receivers in Owens, Crayton, Whitten, and a sound defense. However, I think what the Eagles have demonstrated over the last few years is that they always play with passion whereas the Cowboys seem to go through the motions and let their talent do the talking. I'm going with the Eagles to attain a close, but convincing win against the Cowboys on Monday Night Football BAL at HOU
Good old hurricane Ike has forced these two teams to move their games to Monday Night as well… just not Monday Night Football. The Ravens managed to beat the hapless Bengals last week with good defense and a few key plays here and there on offense (namely rookie quarterback Joe Flacco's 38 yard rushing TD). Houston looked downright awful last week as they struggled to move the ball all day, and didn't tackle worth a lick on defense. However, the Texans are the same team from last year that finished 8-8 and looked to be improving, while the Ravens are still the same team that finished last year at 5-11 and looked like they needed to rebuild with the retirement of Steve McNair. I'm going with the Texans at home.
Well you may be thinking, “hey Sportsroids, how come you don't have an article on steroids?”. Well here it is. Steroids is a touchy subject to try a just to bring it up to someone who has used them before. A close source of mine who deals with many NFL players said that they feel over %30 of players in the NFL are using some type of illegal performance enhancing drugs not necessarily steroids. I find this number to be high but my question is why. I feel that steroids users are cheaters, I mean any one can get an A on the test if the answers are right in front of them. Richtig? The whole entire fun of watching sports is partly in knowing that you yourself could never do the things most of these guys can. So when you add steroids to the mix you lose that. Hell if used roids I'd probably be in the NFL right now running a 4.4 forty at 250 pounds but why put my body through that. If I can't do it through hard work alone I don't' want to do it, and my friends that is the American way. Every time someone brings up roids I think of the movie “The Program” where Vlatamire gets caught using roids, and the black linebacker is like “what the hell you using that stuff for” and he is like “Come on man some people just aren't as talented like you are man I just want to play” or something like that anyway. I always thought that was funny, how pathetic.
So my question to you is how do you feel about Roids my friends, not Sportsroids we all know you love us, but steroids, let me know.
Let's look at the both of these QBs in retrospect. Big Ben Roethlisberger and Aaron Rodgers on Sunday, and Monday, respectively, both showed that they can pass, and run if necessary. They didn't just merely pass, but they hit their receivers with good accuracy on a consistent basis. Aside from throwing the ball; they both display a knack for knowing when to leave the pocket and make a play with their feet, whether they're scrambling results in a throw, or a rushing gain of their own.
Aaron Rogers, Starting QB for the Green Bay Packers
This weekend, Big Ben amassed a mere 137 passing yards, but he got to that number going 13 of 14 with the one incompletion coming on an out-of-pocket sideline throw to avoid pressure. On two occasions, with no good looks downfield or in the intermediate passing lanes, Ben took off for a total of 17 yards (8.5 yards per carry). Aaron Rodgers was equally accurate going 18 for 22 passing, but he also tucked and ran with the football a total of eight times for 35 yards (4.4 yards per carry). In the end, Roethlisberger finished with two TD tosses and a 93% completion percentage, and Rodgers ended the night with an 82% completion percentage, one TD pass and

one rushing TD.

With numbers like these, both quarterbacks proved that efficiency can be deadly, even if they didn't accomplish 200+ passing yards in their games. Some of the most effective quarterbacks are those that allow the game to come to them without forcing the issue. If a quarterback keeps to his mechanics at the outset of each play, and lets his natural ability come second, the law of averages is going to have to allow a big-play opportunity to develop here and there, just as much as the law of averages will tend to allow a smart, short-yardage pass or chance for a decent gainer on ground to develop.
With that being said, this weekend I would start Aaron Rodgers since he's going against a weak defense in the Detroit lions. The Vikings have been constantly hyped up as a potential stout, havoc-wreaking defense for the 2008 NFL season, and Aaron Rodgers obviously didn't think so. As for Big Ben, he too could have a big night, but I see some potential troubled waters as the Browns could end up having a big day defensively after their practical no-show against Dallas this past Sunday. Add that to the fact that they're on live television this Sunday night at home, I would have to plead that Rodgers is the safest bet.

The Giants win the Superbowl and the 2008 Opening day game (wo who). Great, and on Sunday the rest of the league goes out to play, meaning at days end half the league will be undefeated and the other half will be left at 000 percent. But to me, the first 3 games of the NFL season are dicey at best. I bet any coach or player will tell you the same. The teams just aren't firing on all 8 cylinders in these three games which is why it is so hard to see just who are the elites early in season. Take for example the Detroit Lions. That year they started off 3-1 and they didn't even make the playoffs. So what am I saying you ask? Whats my point?
John Kitna should not be making any early 10 win predictions this year.
I just saying don't get to excited if your team wins this week and be sure not to call of work Monday if your team loses, remember there are 15 games left to play and you won't see your real team till week 4 anyways.
