Vikings 7 @ Jets 20
JeremyI want to make it clear that I'm not just an ignorant fan who refuses to pick against his team. They FINALLY got a win last week, but I still don't think this is a bad team. You could hardly call the Rams a bad team. The Vikes lost one game with a minute left, lost one in OT after Doug Brien missed 2 PATs, lost another close one, and then had some freak things happen that lead to a blowout game that they never gave up in. They have an excellent rush defense, and good special teams. One things for sure, I'm sick of the moral (we lost but this sure looked good) victories. They started the 1999 season 2-4 and made the playoffs, I think the playoff are a stretch this year (The 99 Vikings only lost 2 more games. Jeff George for MVP!!!), but it's hardly time to be scouting a number one draft pick either.
MattThe Vikings suck, but not as bad as the Jets. Make it 2 in a row for the Vikings as Moss and Chapman come out on top against fellow Marshall alum Chad Pennington.
JonLetís face it: Jim Kleinsasser is the Vikings most valuable offensive player. If Daunte can spread the ball out like he did last week, the Vikings could add a game to their winning streak. Important note: I know very little about this yearís New York Jets. I know they have Curtis Martin, I know they arenít that great, and I think they benched Vinny. Other than that, I donít know too much. On a side note, from what Iíve seen and heard regarding Jetís coach Herman Edwards, I like him.
SarahThe Vikes won A game. I am an arrogant person who never will pick the Vikings again, because they just don't win enough, barely at all. MOEmentum!!!
Redskins 9 @ Packers 30
JeremyThe fun and gun vs. the gunslinger himself. As much as I'd love to watch Spurrier and co. cream the Packers into corn I just don't see it happening. How the Packers have bumbled their way to 5-1 baffles me. I'm just waiting for the day that Brett Favre is out for whatever reason and the Packers manage to find a 20 year old guy cleaning the toilets at Lambeau, who turns out to make Favre, Elway, and Marino look like little amputee school girls, to be their franchise quarterback for the next 15-20 years. I'm telling you, something like this will happen. The whole thing will become an even luckier set of circumstances when it is discovered that he was never actually employed by the Packers, he just thought the toilets were really dirty.
MattWhat's with all this "creamed corn" business. It's not funny, in fact I think it's stupid. Besides there are other creamed vegetables other than corn, have some variety at least. Washington 37 Green Bay 12
JonThe Packersí defense isnít great. Washington is capable of putting up huge numbers. The most talked-about coach on Page 3 should have some surprises for the folks in Green Bay. The Redskin Potatoes are the pick here.
SarahLast week's game was awesome. The whole defense was sidelined, but the back ups got the job done, bravo! Favre is unstoppable right, and the lowly redskins can't do anything about it. Spurrier, welcome to Lambeau Field, the place where real players play. Anyone for some corn, creamed to perfection?
Colts 10 @ Steelers 28
JeremyI have absolutely nothing to say about this game so I'm going to talk about a non related football incident that occurred last week. I thought the Terrell Owens football signing TD celebration was original and funny. I think people are making more out of it that it was. First of all it was a little inside joke thing between him and a friend. Second of all it's not like he wrote Seahawks Suck on it and gunned the ball at a small child in the crowd. If a guy can burn you with a marker in his sock digging into his ankle then more power to him. Thirdly I think this should actually be encouraged. In the sports world players are generally aloof to the fans and I think something like this should be done. Randy Moss has given many of his TDs to fans. More players should be like Terrell Owens and Randy Moss. Let the record show I'm probably the first person to ever use that last sentence. If you don't want the guys to celebrate in a 'taunting' manner then don't let them in the end zone.
MattIn the "Back of the Book" segment tonight, I will be explaining why Jeremy is wrong. Firstly, a lot of players give footballs to fans, and I'm fine with that, but autographing it in the middle of the end zone was just another way for him to say, "Hey, look at me." "See how great I am." The sports world doesn't need more of that. Secondly, It's not like he gave the ball to a family member, or a kid, or even just a regular fan. He gave it to his financial advisor, who also represented (and was sitting in the seats of) the cornerback that Owens just beat. So not only was he calling attention to himself, he was taunting the Seahawks' defense as well. Thirdly, while he was doing this, he ignored his teammates, the same teammates that made it possible for him to be in the end zone in the first place. He should have been celebrating with them, not off basking in his own glory. Sure there have been split opinions on this from players and journalists alike, but all I know is that if I had a kid, and he/she were playing football, or any sport I would not want them acting like Terrell Owens did last week.
JonIt hurts to go against Indy, especially when Dungy is coaching there, but Pittsburgh should be able to take this one. The Colts donít look that great for a 4-1 team and Tommy Maddox has the Steelers offense moving. Did anyone notice that the Steelers are in first place with a record of 2-3? Tommy Maddox for MVP!!!! (Of the NFL!!!!)
SarahI work until 9 on every Monday. I hate Mondays. Yea I could care less about this game, but I enjoy getting in as much football a week, so I'll allow it. Go Colts!
