WAS-NYG 2 ATL-DAL 2 IND-TEN 1 OAK-CLE 2
CIN-BAL 1 JAC-NE 2 NO-CAR 2 PHI-NYJ 2
TB-HOU 2 SD-MIN 1 PIT-STL 1 SF-ARI 2
BUF-MIA 1 CHI-SEA 2 DEN-DET 1 KC-GB 2 by 10

WAS/NYG: The Giants can't choke away three consecutive games, can they?

ATL/DAL: All aboard the Brandon Wheeden hype train

IND/TEN: I blame Tennessee that I still have to hear about Johnny Manziel

OAK/CLE: I blame Tennessee for me picking Cleveland here

CIN/BAL: Honestly, I don't think the Ravens can stop anybody without Terrell Suggs

JAC/NE: I was picking New England in this game without Tom Brady, so...yeah

NO/CAR: Fun fact: NFC South has two of the league's 8 2-0 teams at this point

PHI/NYJ: Am I really picking the Jets against a non Cleveland Browns team? Wow, the Eagles suck

TB/HOU: Defensive struggle, I'll give the edge to Houston just because of HFA

SD/MIN: So I have no idea how good the Vikings are. The Chargers I at least have a decent idea

PIT/STL: Depending on which Rams' team shows up, this could be a Pittsburgh blowout or a really good game

SF/ARI: If Carson Palmer can stay health, the Cards have a real chance to win the West

BUF/MIA: I actually expect this to be kind of close, even though it shouldn't be. Dolphins suck too badly on offense to win, though

CHI/SEA: Bears probably have a better chance of winning this with Jimmy Clausen starting

DEN/DET: I'll take Peyton Manning against that defense

KC/GB: Why the hell do all these Monday Night games suck so badly?

The eagles gave Chip Kelly way too much latitude with personnel decisions. It seems he took for granted the fact that he inherited a lot of talent tailor made for his offensive philosophy and thought he could piece together a team with any old tripe out there so long as they followed his grand scheme. Except Sam Bradford is still Sam Bradford and now their next best option is Mark 'butt-fumbles' Sanchez, and while I do believe Demarco Murray is a good running back, I don't think his style of play is suited to this offense at all. He's just not the fast, elusive back that will run laterally to get the edge and make guys miss him in the open field, he needs a big, physical o-line, preferably in a bunch formation, to smash through, and in this spread offense they just don't have the personnel.

Right now the only thing the eagles have going in their favor is that the nfc east is falling apart, with the way things are going 8-8 could well win that division.

Chip Kelly offenses, like a good brick of bleu cheese, simply takes time to come together, and you have to be patient enough to wait for the mold to really settle in there before you give it a go.

What kind of a timetable are we talking here? Is this a "when the Bears win another Super Bowl" sort of thing, or a "when the US finally gets around to closing Guantanamo Bay" timetable?

When Alex Smith throws a TD to a WR.



So...either the Colts really suck, or the AFC East is way better than I thought.

AFC East has some great defenses thanks to them constantly getting slayed by Brady and Co.

Indy has a great QB and nothing much else.



At this point the colts should be thrilled they're only down by ten at half time.

Because it has become tradition. When it's the only game of the day, why make it an exciting one? Football fans will watch it regardless.

SNF is the timeslot for big games. TNF is pretty much exclusively about divisional games, so even the not so good matchups can still be interesting. MNF is... it's just there.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

It's option #1. Wish all of life's questions were so easy!

 

Colts need to step it up ASAP. Otherwise, Luck's career options are reduced to GEICO commercials...
