Clearing the Deck – NFL Week 15

December 15, 2013

Time to go around the NFL for week 15…

* The “D” in “Big D” stands for dysfunctional in Dallas. Losing a 23 point lead against the Packers and now the turmoil is ratched up with coaches now calling up QB’s. Good times!

* Big weeks for the Chiefs, Colts and the Dolphins, who all get much needed wins.

* Have a day Jamaal Charles – 215 all purpose yards and 5 TD’s. Bazinga!

* Jay Cutler’s start in Cleveland wasn’t exactly what he had in mind with two early INT’s.  3 TD’s and win later, cooler heads prevail in Chicago as the Bears stay in contention for the NFC North Title.

* Can you believe the Cardinals at 9-5 still wouldn’t make the playoffs?

* Philly, just like Dallas and New England, just can’t stand prosperity as all 3 come up with lousy losses in winnable spots.

* ICYMI, the Jets won’t be making the playoffs after NY’s loss in Carolina, a win the Panthers desparately needed.

* Raise your hand if your saw the Rams upset of the Saints (or St.Louis’ 1st half onsides kick) coming? Yeah, didn’t think so.

* Don’t look now, but the 49ers keep getting better the closer we get to postseason.

* Just in case you had any doubts, the Seattle Seahawks are clearly the best team in football.


Clearing the Deck – NFL Week 13

December 1, 2013

Clearing the deck for week 13 of the regular season around the NFL…

* Can you really blame the Patriots for a 1st half letdown against the 2-9 Texans? Thankfully for New England, the Pats rebounded in time to make it the 2-10 Texans.

* Keep those Cam Newton for MVP buttons as the Panthers roll over the Bucs and now face New Orleans two of the next three weeks.

* Don’t look now, but the Jaguars are now winners of 3 after upsetting the Browns.

* Speaking of the Browns, how about Josh Gordon?!! Dude became the first person in NFL history to have back-to-back 200+ yard receiving weeks, posting 261 Sunday before a head injury after whipping the Stelers for 237 last Sunday.

* The Bears just can’t stand prosperity.  They’ll be happy to get Jay Cutler back next week after an OT loss in Minnesota.

* Is that the Fat Lady we’re heading for head coach Rex Ryan and Geno Smith?

* The 49ers are back on track.  Watch out NFC!

* Sorry Canada, but the Falcons, Bills was the best the NFL could give ya. At least you got overtime!

* Don’t blame Alex Smith for the Chiefs 2nd loss to the Broncos in 3 weeks. Peyton Manning 5 TD’s – 4 to Eric Decker.  Hello, KC defense!

* Start penciling in the Colts and Bengals for playoff home games the first weekend in January.

* Wouldn’t mind seeing the Cardinals and Eagles again come playoff time.  That’s the game we should’ve seen on SNF (sorry Giants/Redskins).

Clearing the Deck – NFL Week 11

November 17, 2013

Clearing the deck for a Sunday afternoon full of surprises in week 11…

* Thoughts and prayers are with everyone touched by the dramatic tornadoes in the Midwest Sunday.

* With that having been said, the Bears OT victory over the defending Super Bowl Champion Ravens despite a two-hour weather delay with those tornado warnings and playing with a backup QB is a good thing on a bad day.

* There’s no doubt the Saints (23-20 winners over SF) and the Seahawks (41-20 over Minnesota) are the class of the NFC at this point.

* Don’t look now, but the Cardinals are just as good (record-wise) as the 49ers at 6-4.

* Hello roller coaster: the Giants have now four in a row and are now just a game out of first place after stating the year 0-6. Who are they behind? The 6-5 Eagles and 5-5 Cowboys.

* Congratulations Texans’ fans, your team has now lost eight in a row after getting beat by Matt McGloin (3 TD’s) and the Raiders in Houston.  Oh yeah, Matt Schaub is back as your QB. Ouch!

*  Maybe the Jets should have spent more time practicing that playing at Dave & Buster’s in Buffalo this weekend.

* That’s two in a row in Tampa.

* Not even a win over San Diego will squash the bad bullying vibes in Miami.

* Just when you thought the Lions were progressing, they give up nearly 400 yards of offense and 4 TD’s to a previously struggling Ben Roethlisberger.

* Do you think Aaron Rodgers should ask the Packers (0-3 without Mr. Discount Double Check) for a raise?
