Last post before Thanksgiving Break, so don’t expect any posts until maybe the weekend. Stuff yourself with turkey, cranberry sauce, dinner rolls, cornbread, biscuits, and then watch some quality football AND a Seahawks game.
Last week I went 10-6, not bad considering the slew of road teams that won (10).
Titans @ Lions - Detroit will do what they continue to do…..suck. It will start off brilliantly, a 98 yard touchdown pass from Culpepper to Calvin Johnson. Next, Kerry Collins throws a pick 6, 14-0. Ensuing possession, Chris Johnson fumbles and the Lions capitalize and make it 21-0, all in the first 2:30 of the game. Tennessee will then score 38 unanswered before the Lions kick a meaningless field goal. This team is going 0-16 (or at the very least, winless with 1 tie). Titans 38 Lions 24
Seahawks @ Cowboys - Matt Hasselbeck throws an INT on the first play, then the next one, then the one after that, and then the one after that, all returned for TDs to make it 35-0. Mike Holmgren finally realizes his running game actually works and starts pounding it with Julius Jones en route to the “play it safe” 24 yard field goal by Olindo Mare. Kelly Jennings falls down as T.O whiffs by him and Brian Russell tries to tackle a coach on the sidelines instead of someone with the ball. Dallas converts on all of their 3rd down plays as John Marshall calls for a 9 man blitz, exposing the whopping 2 DBs despite it being a 5 wide receiver set, and even Brad Johnson throws for 200 yards. Cowboys 51 Seahawks 10
Cardinals @ Eagles - Andy Reid calls 90 passing plays and just 4 rushing plays, wasting a stunning effort by the defense (12 turnovers forced, 9 INTs thrown by Kurt Warner, 3 fumbles by Tim Hightower) as the Cards clinch the NFC West. Sean Considine records 40 tackles, 4 INTs, 1 returned to the 2 yard line only to see Donovan McNabb throw a killer INT at the goal line to Antrel Rolle. All of Arizona’s TDs come from punt returns thanks to 20 yard blasters by punter Sav Rocca; Philly fans finally get tired and start chanting “Cole Hamels is a better coach than Andy!”. The move works to perfection, because Andy Reid will soon get fired and the World Series MVP leads the Eagles to a stunning Super Bowl run. Cardinals 30 Eagles 13Happy Thanksgiving!
