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 10

November 10, 2013

Clearing the deck for week 10 of the NFL season…

* Broncos Nation is holidng its collective breathe as Peyton Manning has his MRI on his lower right leg Monday.  Up next for the 8-1 Broncos, the 9-0 Chiefs.

* Who saw this one coming: Rams 38 Colts 8?!

* How ’bout them Panthers – 5 wins in a row after silencing the 49ers in SF, 10-9. Up next for Carolina: MNF at home against the Patriots.

* The Lions rule atop the NFC North.  Let that marinate around for a bit.

* A by-product of the Lions win, Jay Cutler’s out again for the Bears.

* Good news, bad news for the Steelers: they beat Buffalo, but trade rumors begin for Big Ben.

* Think about this: Nick Foles has 16 TD’s (10 in the past two games) and 0 INT’s this season.

* Don’t look now, but the AFC North is dogfight again with both the Ravens and Browns just 1.5 games behind the now slumping Bengals.

* Case Keenum is exciting, but the Texans just aren’t that good right now.

* Yes Jacksonville, you will not go winless this season.  And that as the Titans blow a golden chance to sneak up on the Colts in the AFC South.
