Week Five Recap: Indianapolis is a legitimate case for the best team in the league, almost uncontested. Cincinnati may be for real. I hope in my heart this doesn’t mean Denver is for real as well. The Giants looked amazing but anybody would.
Two teams with winning records I am not impressed with: Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles. And not because I hate those teams, but because they’re way overrated.
Week Six Preview: I’m picking against my Giants because this game is in the Superdome. Forget all the recent smoke I’ve blown up the bum of the 49ers…they got ran at home. And I never use italics. I’m also picking the Titans and their rough schedule to start 0-6…I wanted to believe but how can I now? I hope I’m wrong about Minnesota beating Baltimore, but I can’t pick against the Vikings and Jared Allen right now. Aaron Rodgers of Green Bay has a big week and so does Big Ben.
That being said, there are way too many roughing the passer flags. I understand wanting to protect the quarterback but seriously, some things are unavoidable accidents. It’s professional football and I want to see teams compete in head to head combat instead of having games won by whoever can draw the most yellow. It’s weak, and it better cool off towards the end of the year when those calls can really ruin a team’s season.
