Loser Of The Week--NFL Football

    What a Sunday of NFL football. Cincinnati lost to Houston, but some predicted this. Not that big of an upset. There is still a game tonight and Monday, but surely they cannot be topped by some of the pitiful games of the day.

    Washington losing to Kansas City? I actually predicted this one. Washington is a mess and will head coach Jim Zorn survive? I think he may be out.

    #3 Loser of the weekend- NY Giants Defense & Baltimore Defense.
    Did the team defenses miss the plane ride? Where were they?

    Calling the donut shops, starbucks...any football defense players there? If so, please send them. Obviously there were people impersonating our defenses this weekend.

    #2 Loser of the weekend- Another 2-way tie here.
    Oakland Raiders-13  Philadelphia-9
    NY Jets-13  Buffalo-16  (ot)

    Two  teams that were thought to have the ability to challenge for a Conference Championship, maybe even the Superbowl really blew it today. Donovan McNabb returned to form as UP one week, down the other. Hmmm, maybe Kolb should get more reps this week in practice!
    Mark Sanchez of the NY Jets looked like a lost rookie. He definately did not look as he has in previous weeks. Will the Jets be able to rebound or is the beginning of the end?

    #1 Loser of the weekend- Tennessee Titans
    New England-59

    This was UGLY!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean it was over from the kickoff. Time to think about next year. "Turn out the lights, the party's over!"
    Offense was nowhere to be found.
    Titans passing game was a negative 7 yards passing. Geeesss!
    The mighty Tennessee defense of a year ago...gave up 35 points (5 TD passes) in the 2nd qtr alone. This is an NFL mark. It was 45-0 at the half.
    52-0 after New England'd 1st drive of second half. Thank goodness N.E. took mercy on the poor hapless Titans or who knows how bad the score could have been.

    Jeff Fisher needs to have a Tantrum...bench players, cut players if needed and get men who want to "earn the right" to be on this team. I have watched NFL football since the very, very early 70's and this was the worst played pro football game by one team I have seen in that time.

    What do you other football fans here think about this list? Do not intend to write a hub on it, just hear from you all here.

    I think the Giants loss was just a matter of them finally playing a good team and a great offense. They'll still be in the mix, but they certainly aren't the best team in the league.

    Baltimore has had problems on defense all year. Both the Jets and the Ravens played complacent when they had a chance to win the game and it cost each of them.

    The Eagles game was an embarrassment. Hopefully they just overlooked the Raiders.

    I didn't think Jeff Fisher would get fired this year because of what he's done in the past, but after today's game he has to be in hot water if things continue the way they are right now.

      I think Fisher is safe still, but I wouldn't be surprised if Fisher fired a co-ordinator, either defense or offense, or both by the season end.

    And with Arizona next week, the NY Giants better learn how to stop the pass attack.

    I do believe the Giants were humbled today. A bit psyched out and all in all just a day where there was no sync in their step. The GMen will be back next week . .

    I didn't see the Sanchez highlights/lowlights, but any time you throw five picks, it's going to be a long night.

    I'd like to see him rebound.  Over the last three weeks he's had to bad games and one decent game against Miami.  The trade for the Browns WR should help him over the long run, but he needs to relax and try not to press or it will turn into he should have stayed another year in college very quickly.
