Had my grandson this weekend, so much of my attention was directed towards him. But I did get to see a little here and there.
Pats 59 - Titans 0
If this were any other team, any other coach, I would say it's time to fire the entire coaching staff. All I can say is Jeff Fisher is as good as any, but what the problem is this year is not exactly clear to this writer. I mean, the Patriots are as dangerous as any in the league and are capable of taking any team to the cleaners. But to get blown out this bad in a winless season, after a great year last year, is certainly an unsolvable mystery to me.
Chiefs 14 - Skins 6
I cannot see Zorn coaching much longer. Washington is not necessarily a good team. But to lose to Detroit, KC, and barely beat St. Louis is not what the upper levels of management want to see. Call Washington another team that has severely underperformed and needs to look toward next season. If Zorn gets to coach another week and if I were him (and Jeff Fisher too, for that matter), I'd start the entire second string next week just to see if I could find a spark somewhere. I doubt there would be one, but what can you lose when your season is over anyway?
Saints 48 - Giants 27
Not that the Saints are any kind of a slouch on offense, but where was the NY defense? I saw some of this game and watched Brees pretty much have his way, from my perspective.
NO may be one of the elite teams this year, mixing good defense with a very powerful offense. It certainly elevates Brees into the elite QB corps and makes me wonder what ever possessed the Chargers to pick the overrated punk Philip Rivers to be the QB of THEIR future?
Oh well. Not MY problem.
Vikings 33 - Ravens 31
The old man continues to do his part. The rest of his teammates are doing theirs. I have never been much of a Minnesota fan. But I am loving the fact that Favre is leading them to an undefeated record so far, while Green Bay struggles to stay above .500.
Is it too soon to predict Minnesota and New Orleans in the NFC title game?
Bills 16 - Jets 13
It's a surprise that anyone won this one.
Someone needs to calm the Jets offense down. Their defense is playing fairly well, but the offense has imploded.
Falcons 21 - Bears 14
The Falcons are for real. If it were not for that bad game against NE, they would be the talk of the NFC right now.
