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 9

November 3, 2013

Clearing the deck for week 9 of the NFL season…

* Welcome back Tom Brady! 432 yards and 4 TD’s vs. Pittsburgh Sunday is something fantasy football and Patriots fans are more used to from TB12.

* Can you believe the Browns (4-5) have more wins than the defending Super Bowl Champion Ravens (3-5)? They do now after beating Baltimore Sunday.

* Hey Cowboys, be thankful you were playing the Vikings this week.

* Darnell Young saves the Redskins season with an unlikely 3-TD day in washington’s OT win over the Chargers.

* If only the Bills had a QB, there’d be no more undefeated teams left.  That having been said, KC continues to be lucky each week. That luck stops as Denver and San Diego are up next on the schedule.

* Give Cam Newton his props, he’s got the Panthers back in playoff contention.

* Sorry Jeff Fisher, you can’t go home again (or at least you can’t be them in your home).

* How are Rex Ryan’s Jets 5-4? This week’s victim: Rob Ryan’s Saints.

* Have a season in one day Nick Foles – 7 TD’s – tying an NFL record with Peyton Manning and 5 others!!!!

* To say the Seahawks dodged a bullet would be an understatement.  Down 21-0 to winless Tampa Bay, they survive in OT, 27-24.
