The crystal ball was two up and two down for the 2nd week in a row. That puts me 4 games under .500 for the season…not good! The crystal ball will be on a short leash…it better start looking over its shoulder! Let’s take a look back and see what happened:
Last Week: 2-2
Dallas @ Arizona: This was a bizarre game from the start with the Cards taking the opening kick-off all the way for a TD! The Cowboys had a late game rally to put the game in OT, but then disaster struck…the game ended on a blocked punt returned for a TD! In the end...the special teams for the Cowboys were not so special!
Philadelphia @ San Francisco: The Eagles got off to an early lead and it looked like it was going to be a cakewalk…guess again! Andy Reid tried for a long FG by the struggling David Ackers…that sure backfired, didn’t it! The 49ers blocked the FG and ran it back for a TD…now we got a ball game! The Birds were able to rally and win the game. It wasn’t pretty…but there are no “style points” in the NFL! A win is a win…especially on the road!
Miami @ Houston: Wow! This was an exciting game wire to wire. The ‘Fins are an exciting team to watch. The wildcat offense is fun to see in action…each week they have a new wrinkle. Pennington came from the WR position to throw a flea-flicker pass for a long TD…good stuff, I tell ya! On 4th and goal, on QB keeper in shotgun formation, Schaub took it in for the game clinching TD...with seconds remaining on the clock…what a finish!
New England @ San Diego: The Patriots (CHEATERS) proved to be no match against Norv and his Bolts. Rivers shredded the Pat’s defense all night long! Cassel…well…he’s just not an NFL quality QB! How could he be? Prior to this season, he hasn’t started a game since High School! He was the back-up QB on his college team…Belichick is a fool to think that he could turn Cassel into a legitimate QB in the NFL! Maybe arrogant too!
*The Cowboys lost to the Cards in the desert…but add insult to injury…the ‘Boys lost Tony Romo, Felix Jones, Sam Hurd, and their punter to injuries…I guess it should be injury to insult!
*The Eagles, Cowboys, and Redskins need to send fruit baskets to Romeo Crennel in Cleveland…to thank him for beating the G-Men last night! And from the looks of Romeo’s waistline…the fruit should do him some good!
*Eli Manning was horrible in last nights game against the Browns…Eli threw 3 INT’s. His older bro, Peyton, threw for 3 TD passes on Sunday afternoon…now that’s more like it…all is well in the Manning Universe!
*Today is the NFL trade deadline and Tony Gonzales of the Chiefs wants to be traded! Do you blame him? If you were a 1st ballot Hall-Of-Famer to be…would you want Brodie Croyle throwing you the ball?
*The Phillies came back in dramatic fashion to beat the Dodgers last night! The Phillies take a commanding 3-1 lead in the series. Go Phil’s…that parade on Broad street looks like a real possibility now!
