Here we go again.
Seattle at San Francisco tonight to start us off. 49ers coming off a real bad hair day and 26-3 humiliation at home to the Giants. Seahawks gave Tom Brady a real bad hair day and squeaked out a 1-point win against the Patriots.
49ers favored by 7 1/2. That sounds high to me. I'm looking for a close low-scoring game.
Intense defense at its finest. Niners have their dignity on the line tonight after the Giants took them apart last week. As for the Hawks I bet they are on fire tonight especially after they handed Brady and them evil Pats a big old "L"
Should be a good game. Should be interesting.
I like the game, but something is wrong with Smith? That Gore can surely run, :-)
Yeah, there was way too much Gore in that game for me. It seemed like every time he broke through the line of scrimmage he had a clear field for like 20 yards. What are you thinking, Seahawks defense. I wouldn't whine but my fantasy opponent has him.
Wow, those two teams and their coaches sure don't like each other much. A whole lot of scrapping going on in that game.
Yep, the defenses are good in both teams.
About Smith, he seemed to have no confidence in throwing the ball :-)
And Mark Knows how to play :-) Or does he Know Less?
Mark knows how to hand the ball off, as evidenced by last week's win. Now what I really want to see is Mark hand the ball off to Tim (Tebow, the new running back due to injuries) this week against the Patriots. For about 200 yards and 3 touchdowns.
he he I said the same thing last night Tebow for running back! Now if they do that and it works Rex will go down in history along with Sparano as genius's. As for Mark, he can throw the ball but he needs some weapons. I say the three stooges all bring one home this weekend, Chaz, Hill and Kerley.
As for Jim Harburgh, is there anyone he likes or visa versa? Man looks as if he has a perpetual enema in him 24/7.
I think maybe Jim Harblah likes his brother John, of Ratbird shame. But that's probably it. Those two Rosemary's babies stick together like flies on A-Rod.
I like coaches with personality like Sexy Rexy, don't you? If Rex can figure out a way to beat Tom Brady and his hairdresser with the hoody at their place, it will be the biggest win by any team of the season.
Actually, I'd like to see Tebow play linebacker and sack Brady, but I'll settle for him playing Moses on Sunday, pounding the sacred rock, and leading the Jets to the promised land (first place in the AFC East).
BLACKANDGOLDJACK is in rare form today and I love every word of it.
You're so sweet.
So I see the Patriots are a 10-point favorite. Sounds on the high side to me. Biggest spread of the week. Next biggest spreads are the Texans over the Ravens and the Bears over the Lions, both at 6 1/2. Those three games are actually the ones of most interest to me, other than the Steelers @ Bengals of course.
The Steelers and the Bengals, now I know its on SNF but really. is this a matchup?
Ha the Steelers should breeze by this one even if Cinncy has a better record the the Steel Curtain, lets remember that this is Pittsburgh's first divisional game and the Bengalsmay have had 3 straight wins before losing to the fins and the Browns?
Crickets! Have been so busy this year, completely missed every game. lol.. Maybe next year.
Let's see, what's on tap today.
Redskins @ Giants looks like my choice for the 1:00 pm game of most interest. Will the Giants play like they did last week against the 49ers, like the best team in the NFL? Will the Giants be able to contain RG3? That would appear to be the key to the game.
Ravens @ Texans is the other 1:00 pm game I will be paying some attention to. Suggs may play some for the Ravens.
Then at 4:25 pm you have the Jets @ Patriots. Can the Jets defense hold down the Patriots offense and keep the game close? Running the ball like they did last would be a good thing for the Jets to keep Brady off the field, but I'll be surprised if that happens. I think the Patriots will play the run, stack the box and such, and make Sanchez beat them if that is going to happen.
And then of course for Sunday Night Football, we have the Steelers @ Bengals.
Sunday Football does not frustrate Pittsburgh tonite is my main game, I am enjoying Tx -Ravens, Redskins and NYG!!
Hey prettydarkhorse, I hope you paid real close attention to the Redskins/Giants game and diagrammed some plays and stuff. Because the Steelers have the Redskins next at home and then on the road at the Giants. What the Steelers need to do now is put together a winning streak.
Tough loss for the Jets in OT against the Patriots. That and the Ravens self-destructing surprised me the most, what with the Jets giving the Patriots such a battle and the Ravens giving the Texans and giving and giving.
The NFL in week 7 was all about the Rivalries in NY and all I can say about yesterday is thank goodness I am (among other things) a true blue Giants fan. That last Eli to Cruz TD made up for the Jets game. And today every time I have to see the Patriots beat the Jets (highlights) I have the Giants to ease the pain for this Winning Salsa Touchdown from Cruz handed the Redskins a loss. And it sent chills up and down my spine.
Elite Eli Manning's TD to Victor Cruz rescues Giants from Redskins.
Just win, baby. The Jets looked good, though. The stats in that game were pretty much a wash in most categories. Except kickoff returns. That one by McCourty in the first quarter right after Shonne Greene scored the TD had to be rather deflating. But the Jets kept after it, and almost got it.
Eli is really Mr. Clutch at the end of the game. I think he is just hitting his peak whereas guys like Brady are on the downside.
Bears hold on to beat the Lions and top the division.
But does anyone really believe Jay Cutler is going to survive the season?
More games on tap tonight. NFL Network typically replays the top 3 games of the week. 8:00 pm we have Jets at Patriots. Then at 9:30 pm we have Jets at Patriots. Tomorrow at 3:00 pm we have Jets at Patriots. Tim Tebow to provide commentary on all 3 games. Hey, that's what the NFL Network schedule says. I just checked, wondering if the Steelers vs. Bengals would be on. I'd rather watch that one again summarized to just most of the plays instead of the original telecast of more than three hours.
