Its week 9 and The Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints are the only 2 teams that remain undefeated. Based on their match ups for this weekend it seems that they will remain that way for one more week. Any thoughts? As for the rest of the NFL . . .Can the Titans upset the 49ers? Will the Giants resurface and stomp the Chargers? Can the Dolphins wildcat formation stick it to the Patriots again? Denver was the underdog against Baltimore, Dallas and New England. .can they do it again and win a big one against Pittsburgh? So who do you think will be victorious this weekend and who will be brutally upset?
I think it is "Make or Break" time for the Texan franchise...for this particular season...or that's how it is being billed down here. Will we be contenders...are they up for it? God...I sure do hope so!
The Texans have gotten their butt kicked by the Colts...like 13 - 1 times (not looking at the exact stat at the moment...). We need to keep our momentum going...it is going to be a great head to head game...I hope!
Well, I am 0-2 picking upsets so far. The favorite has romped over the underdog in both my upset picks. lol But...this week I will put out 2 upset specials.
1. Texans over the Colts 2. Carolina Panthers over the N.O. Saints
Now you say Wwwwhhhhhaaatttttt? Yep, I call the Panthers over Saints. I hope not, but N.O has had a couple of huge wins lately and are primed for a let down against a weaker team. I hope N.O. wins, but to pick a good upset one goes for what would be a Real upset!
My heart wants the Chicago Bears to beat Arizona this weekend. I will still pick the Bears to win. Green Bay will win the "Battle of the Bays" game in Tampa. Just a footnote on the Green Bay vs. Tampa Bay game, the Bucs are wearing the old jerseys from when they entered the NFL in 1976. The creamsicles are back, lol!!! One more prediction, Titans over the 49ers. I had to do that since the Titans are my wife's favorite team.
With the Cardinals I think it is more about which one of their identities they come to play with. Who are they? One week they beat the Giants and the next they are crushed by the Panthers? As for the Bears it will be interesting to see which defense shows up. Will it be the Bears that gave up 45 points to the Bengals or the one who forced 5 turnovers and scored a touchdown against the Browns.
Interesting to note both teams are 4-3 coming into week 9. The Cards have a perfect 3-0 record on the road and the Bears at home are 3-0.
The winner of this game will be the one that comes to play with passion, focus and commitment. And with both of these teams and their identity crisis for sure it has the makings of a great game.
And on a last note and I say this in a quiet whisper. . .go blue
In not exactly a huge or even particularly big upset, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Cards beat the Bears. I could see Detroit beating Seattle. I couldn't quite commit to it, but I was real tempted to take the Chargers over the Giants.
If any team is primed for a huge upset it's the Saints. They've been coming out flat the past two weeks and then scoring a bunch to catch up. They just might hit the snooze button once too many times in the next few weeks.
Looks like "every other week Warner" has brought the Cardinals' offense to the game with 28-7 lead with 2:49 left in the first half. Cards have 296 yards and 20 first downs to this point. It the Cars total domination and a bad sign for the rest of the NFC West.
Can the Bears make any kind of come back in the second half????
C'Mon...Texans...you almost had it...(Well...you almost won...that is)...is this an indicator of things to come...or are ya' going to make a run for the play-offs? That's all I want to know...ya' got'ta bye week coming up to think about it!
Texans over Cowboys. .. Cant decide on this one as the Texans have been playing great on offense, while Dallas is struggling. However, this could go either way as both defenses have not played well.Giants over Titans - I am hoping for a Giant win as these GMen need a win to to get back on track...
Week 10 starts the true playoff push. A team 1-7 can still mathematically make it to the postseason and a team 8-0 can miss it. Each game from here on out is super important for this week picks and predictions are full of playoff implications, and should be a fun ride.There is no thing as a sure...
Upset no. 1: Indianapolis Colts (11-0)vs Tennessee Titans (5-6)Since Vince Young's resurgence, the Tennessee Titans have won 5 straight games after opening the season at a dismal 0-6 start. Running back Chris Johnson has become more effective in the running game now since the passing game has...
NFLLooking at the schedule, there are two games I want to catch. First, the 49ers are at the Vikings. We'll find out this week if the Niners are for real. I also love watch Peterson run, and seeing if Brett has anything in the tank is also worth a watch.Game two, I gotta go with...
I'm taking Tampa Bay straight up to win on the field. The Saints have been showing up late for the past four weeks and they have the big game against the Patriots next week. I think they are gonna take their eye off the prize and the Bucs are gonna pull off the shocker.
Yes...It's back! It won't be too much longer now. Get the reclining chair lined up in front of the big screen properly. Find your favorite big popcorn bowl...and tallest mug...Are ya' ready for sum' Football? Dare anyone to make a decisive prediction for their team...So they can go on...
