Monday AM QB

Colts 34 - Seahawks 17

You get the feeling that Seattle didn't have a chance, and clearly they didn't. It wasn't even as close as the score indicated, as two of the Seattle TDs came while the Colts had their second string on the field. But the one thing the Colts must work on is penalties. Some were downright stupid and could cost them dearly in a big game with teams like NE and Baltimore.

Next week, Indy has to face a dangerous Tennessee team. I say dangerous not because of their record, but because they are a division rival that is sorely desperate for a win. Those kinds of teams have a way of surprising even the highly seasoned ones, which is why I label them "dangerous".

Saints 24 - Jets 10

The Jets proved they have one of the best defenses in the league in this one. They really put the clamps down on the high-powered Saint offense. If not for the NO defense, this one would have been tied at the end of regulation. The difference was the inexperience of a rookie QB and an opportunistic defense that took advantage of the mistakes.

A lot can happen in a 16 game season. But as of Week 4, the Saints are one of the elite teams in the NFL. They get a bye next week and play the Giants in two. It should be a good one.

The Jets go to Miami, where they should recuperate from their wounds.

Pats 27 - Ravens 21

NE seems to be returning to form. Greg may not think so just yet. But they beat a pretty good Ravens defense yesterday and are tied with the Jets for first place in the AFC East.

Next week the Pats go to Denver, where they will prove that Denver is a pretender (if they do not let their guard down). The Ravens get the Bengals who are a fluke play away from being 4-0. That, too, will come to a harsh ending after losing to the Pats.

Skins 16 - Bucs 13

Because Rocket loves pain I am posting this score. I think Zorn is a goner, anyway, it's just a matter of time. But for now, he should get another week. Next week the Skins get KC, who are the bottom of the barrel in the AFC.

The Bucs go to Philly. Get ready for 0-5, that is what they get for firing Gruden and hiring a greenhorn. Gruden had lousy players playing to their max, but that wasn't good enough for the arrogant TB management. Now they have utter embarrassment, week after week.

Steelers 38 - Chargers 28

Again, it's a great day when the Chargers lose. The most overrated QB in the NFL, Philip Rivers, piled up some more stats but could not deliver a win against the underachieving Steelers. Next week, SD gets to lick its wounds on a bye week and then they get to play the overachieving Denver Broncos. It's a shame either has to win that one.

The Steelers get to beat up the Lions next week. Tally Ho.

Weez a comin now! On the warpath dudes!

Went to bed at midnight and had a great surprise on waking seeing the Dallas had been beaten.

The question is Greg! Who can beat the Giants? Any thoughts?

Rocket, the New Jersey Giants have hardly been tested yet. The only arguably decent team they have played - Dallas - just got beat by the terrible (though surprisingly undefeated) Broncos. And next week, they host Oakland. I think New Orleans, the week after that, will be a loss for New Jersey. I don't see them beating San Diego either.

I'm happy my team seems to be improving. I'm wondering if the Ravens can lose to the Patriots without whining about the officials. I mean, when the Pats beat them in the undefeated season, all we heard was the refs, when in reality, it was some bad calls by Rex Ryan (and clutch plays by Brady) that killed them. Yesterday, their #1 receiver drops a key pass at the end, and they complain about a roughing call. Pathetic. Ray Lewis needs to take the skirt off.

I'm with LAS on the Broncos. It's miraculous they are undefeated. Even though the Pats have historically had a hard time in Denver, I can't imagine them beating Atlanta and Baltimore, then losing to Denver.

As for the Titans, their season is essentially over. What are they playing for at this point? Pride?

Chargers suck! Hahahahaha. They will still beat the overrated Giants.

Now... you are goading him. Plain and simple. You want him to explode.

Don't you?

I cannot imagine NE losing to Denver. They have played no one. If they do manage to pull it off, then, I may think about believing that Denver is a reasonably decent team.

//Bears 48

The Bears are slipping in under the radar, that's for sure. I think they can play well enough to get a wildcard berth. I think they are the second best team in the division, behind the Vikings.

Good grief, the Lions with a better record than the Titans. Wake me when it's over.

Minn - The Pack

great game. Was up watching into our wee hours. Favre is exciting and gutsy whatever you think about him.

Greg said...

Hey, Mary Ellen - I'm a Bear's fan this year! I have the Chicago defense in my fantasy league. :)

I am utterly amazed at how the Steelers have fallen apart defensively after Polamalu's injury. But as we see, the Bears' defense has not tanked after Urlacher's, and it is a testament to the overall talent of their squad.
