Vikings 41 @ Bears 48

sarah.jpg
Sarah
The gift the Vikings received last week won't happen again during this game. If it does, I am going to have to bestow the title "Luckiest team on earth" to them. Remember when the NFC Central was the toast of the league? Now, I feel like the NFC North should apologize to all the other teams for being so pitiful. 3 of the 4 teams are tied for first place with a 3-3 record. At least with these two teams playing each other, someone is going to end up above .500 when it's all said and done. I know nothing of the Bears defensive line, but I think they will stop Adrian Peterson, who did not look Petersonesque against the Lions.
jeremy.jpg
Jeremy
I have no faith in the Vikings, and I think they're 1-5 at the Bears in the YouTube era. This could be ugly. Here's to being put in position to win by a long pass interference penalty 3 weeks in a row, or Adrian Peterson having his overdue coming out party.

Colts 14 @ Packers 34

sarah.jpg
Sarah
The Colts appeared to be back to their old ways last week. Besides Kampman and Woodson, I don't see the rest of the defense pulling their own weight. The Packers are ranked #20th overall in defense, a lot of it is due to injuries, but sometimes you just have to rise to the occasion, and that's just not gettin' done. My point is, with the way Peyton was throwing the ball last week, I think the Packers are going to struggle hard core.

Rodgers has good stats, but watching Packer games almost seem like a chore now. All the fun's been sucked out of it and I wish I could go back and do something about it. If you get spoiled like how we were with Favre, the organization has to realize the fans are going to maybe throw some tantrums when they don't get their way. (i.e. declare your disinterest for the Packers and become a Jets fan)

Bad news for Packer fans. The Colts look like they got their act together last week.

I have a feeling that Indianapolis is going to roll through Green Bay and it might get ugly for the Packers. Neither team can stop the run, but who do you have more confidence in? The guys on Green Bay? Or Peyton Manning and his buddies?

Seahawks 10 @ Buccaneers 20

sarah.jpg
Sarah
The Bucs looked sharp last week and with the Seahawks begging Joe Schmo off the street to start at QB, this might not even qualify as an NFL game.

I've been trying to add more to my comments this week, but it's exhausting.

Broncos 7 @ Patriots 41

sarah.jpg
Sarah
Wow, how the mighty have fallen. The Patriots looked old and washed up on Sunday night against the Chargers. That's the way uh-huh uh-huh I like it. That being said, I don't see them losing at home to the Broncos, a team whose division almost mirrors the NFC North.
jeremy.jpg
Jeremy
I attend football games every other week, which means I miss out on channel surfing games, and watching the late game, a good 40% of the time. Still, I feel like I've seen every second of Patriot football this year. (Not to mention 124 Red Sox games.) What's the deal with that?
matt.jpg

Ibid.
jon.jpg
Jon
They actually used Matt Cassel's name in the tv promotion for this game. I'm wondering if they had the promo done before the season and dubbed in his name. That would be dumb, plus they talked about the high powered Denver offense, so probably not, but the narration quality did sound weird, so I'm not ruling it out completely. It's funny to think though, how many New England starters can you name? I mean, Moss is easy, then Cassel and whichever backup runningback they happen to start. But then I'm like, "Is Junior Seau still there?" Then I remember Bruschi and Harrison. But really, I think Cassel is suddenly the second or third most famous Patriot in terms of name recognition.

Cassel is like the "Caroline in the City" of players. Remember that show? Anyway, it was one of many shows that NBC plugged into its Thursday night lineup. A lineup which was anchored by Friends, Seinfeld, and ER -- all in the height of popularity. So, just by positioning, any other show that night was guaranteed to be near the top of the ratings list. And some of those shows sucked big time. "Caroline in the City" was ok, but most popular shows on other nights or on other channels had to actually be quite good to get that kind of fame. Those shows are like Bruschi and Harrison and the rest of the guys who have made that team great in recent years. Notable, but not in the right place to be famous with the masses I guess.

Yeah, the NFC north is weak this year. The Packers showed their worth by playing 2 good qtrs against the seahawks practice squad, and the Vikings BARELY beat the winless Lions, thanks to a crappy PI call AND a gimmie saftey, and the Bears took the lead in the last minute only to lose that lead in the last seconds for the 2nd time this year. Go us.

To be fair, the Lions also made a late comeback against the Packers, before a fluke-ish meltdown that exemplified what it is to be the Lions.

That PI call happened with lots of time on the clock. In theory they still could have gone and gotten the points they needed, though it was definitely a break it was hardly the Ed Hochuli "Early whistle" type gift-call everyone is making it out to be. It just happened to be the last questionable call of the game.

There was also a long pass by the Lions that hit the Viking defender in the back as he made contact that was ruled PI and a number of questionable holding calls that took back key first downs.

I don't know what a "gimmie safety" is. It's not random chance that put the Lions on the 1, it was a fumble by Peterson. So, I'm not sure you can file that under an overall "break" for the Vikings. The Lions in turn ran three straight passes, from the one yardline, with an inexperienced QB and an offensive line that's given up the second most sacks in the league. It was just a matter of time before someone got in there, which Jared Allen did. If Orlovsky didn't run away he was getting sacked, so he either forgot where he was, or took the cowards way out.

Yes! I think they're actively going for it. That would also explain the safety.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3643295

Really though, all those picks for a guy who has never played a full season, broke 1000 YDs once in 4 years, and has maxed out at 8 TDs? The most interesting thing on his profile page is that he's 7 days younger than me and he's from Odessa.

Still. That team was underachieving before. Even with Johnson at QB for the near future, it's hard to believe any team where Roy Williams is a clear #2 won't be a force to be reckoned with.

Also, to be fair, those yards and those 8 TD's were probably 60% of the Lions offense those seasons.

I agree and I would say the Packers are the best team in the divsion right now. In fact the seem to be the only team with an offense good enough to rack up points quickly. But they did lose 3 in a row before catching a depleted Seattle team.
At the same time I think the Vikings are seriously underacheiving right now and the lack of creativity in the offense is really holding them back. Last year with T-Jack at QB they put up 42 on Detroit, this year 10.

Whoever wins the division could be 9-7 or 8-8.

To be REALLY fair, my point was that the NFC North sucks this year, top to bottom.

I agree, I think I would've pulled the trigger on that deal. Of course, if I was the Chiefs I also would've pulled the trigger on a 3rd round choice if that was the best offer. So maybe Ted was playing a game of chicken and lost. Or won? Or tied? How exactly is a game of chicken judged?

Statistically, all 3 teams are pretty close so I don't think you have to give any particular team an edge. The Packers score the most, but give up the most points. Minnesota and Chicago are more balanced on offense run/pass wise. The Packers have the worst run defense but the best pass defense. Green Bay has the best turnover differential, which is probably a big reason they've overcome their run off/def issues.

What could hold the Vikings back is Gus is their QB, what could hold the Bears back is Forte hitting the rookie wall and their defense has been particularly injury prone over the last 3 years, and what could hold the Packers back is not being able to run and not being able to stop the run.

This is funny for a wide variety of reasons http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/specials/fansurvey/2008/index.html?eref=T1

On a Packers note, I think Forte will hit the rookie wall and the Bears D is notorious for breaking down in the late stretch. The Vikes I think are going to win some games, but yes Gus will really limit them. I think the young Packers will continue to get healthy and gel in the meantime. If you are the Packers and go .500 by week 9 (4-4), suddenly you are healthy, your backups have some reps, and still in a weak division.

Yes, Packer fans can always be counted on for their objective opinion of all things Packers related. It's also just a sheer coincidence that, outside of the Packers and a small handful of other teams, this pretty closely mirrors how good your team has been lately. It's almost as if fans enjoy themselves more if they're winning.

They don't need to make these lists to determine that the Metrodome is a poorly situated shit-hole. (Also, if you're ranking stadiums what does Team Quality have anything to do with it?)

I suppose if you are going to run a survey to rate the best stadium I would say alot.

How fans feel about their team speaks volumes towards expected fan experience.

Yeah, that stadium poll is worthless. I mean just look at the ratings for "Atmosphere", the Metrodome (Vikings) is ranked 24 of 32. This is completely ridiculous!!! If you've ever had the pleasure of exiting the Dome through one of the non-revolving doors, you would get a first-hand demonstration that the roof of the Dome (unlike other domes) is kept inflated completely by positive air pressure. Therefore, by design, it has more atmosphere than any other NFL stadium. If the survey can't get this category right, I don't think I can trust the accuracy of the other categories as well.

I will admit, it is a thrill exiting the Metrodome. Once I got lifted off my feet, and another time I almost lost my hat. Nice double use of the word "atmosphere".

When Lambeau Field packs the house for Family Night, I'd say it is accurately portrayed as the top "Atmosphere" stadium.

I guess team quality would just be along the lines of "do I want to actually go to the games." Really, this doesn't say much about the stadium, because the Packers would have one of the better stadiums regardless of the quality of their team.

Now Sarah, don't accuse me of hopping on a bandwagon here...

I think that the blowing of the horn when the vikings do something good is awesome, and it has to do something great for the fans. Let's face it- other than just being cool, it's hooked in historically to the team name and the heritage of the (at one time) majority of the people of MN and the Midwest. It's fairly primal, and sounds better than fireworks going off somewhere.

THAT adds to the atmosphere of a team more than a cool stadium. Once the game is on, I don't give a rats arse about architecture or "fung shooey"

I agree Carl. Very good comment. The horn is cool and I agree that the primal aspect of it is part of that appeal.

As for the rest of that survey, I'm glad Minnesota is last in tailgating. I know I already covered most of my feelings on the subject, but I've been wanting to address football tailgating specifically.
So here goes: I don't get it. If I'm making a list of things I want to do on a Sunday morning, drinking beer and eating brats and hot dogs wouldn't get one of the top spots. Add in the fact that the temp is likely below freezing (before windchill) and I'm wondering why this wouldn't qualify as punishment of some sort. Has Amnesty International looked into this?

I think this is valid but it needs to be mentioned that at the end of the season most teams can probably go back and point to about 5 plays that could have completely changed the season had they all gone the other way. You can already say the same thing about San Diego. And Minnesota seems to seek out games like this.
Being a winning team sometimes seems to be about being good enough to not be subject to the luck of the draw week after week, or to be fortunate enough to have the ball bounce your way more times than not.

Yeah, the NFC north is weak this year.

I think the NFC North has been bad and could be bad overall, but might not be when we see how everything works out. I think we'd all agree our teams have potential.

I'm trying to find a link about the whole Favre gave away the entire Packers offense to the Lions before they played them this year. What's everyone's thoughts about this? I need to find out if this is really true. If it is, he not only hurt the team, but the fans. Not that the Lions really had a chance anyway against the Packers, but still. That's not coo.

No story anywhere linkable yet, but Jay Glazer just said on Fox pregame that Brett Favre called the Lions and gave them a "90 minute dissertation" of everything the Packers do on offense.

For the record, until I see some proof otherwise, I don't believe it. The Packers saw to it that Favre couldn't go to the Vikings, the Vikings opened up the season at Lambeau. We know Favre had the pertinent Vikings' phone numbers. This was about the same time that all the bad blood was at it's worst. Seems odd to me that Favre would wait until week 2 to call the Lions, of all teams, to give them pointers.

Also, it seems fishy to me that this presumably happened over a month ago. We're supposed to buy that Favre spilled the beans to a room full of 100 people for an hour and a half and it took Jay Glazer's "inner-circle" gossip connections a month to out this story? Not one of those people told anyone until then? Not one of them texted an old team mate "You'll never guess what's happening right now....?"

Back to the game and such, the Packers seemed to play pretty much a flawless game on both side of the ball. I really cannot complain too much about anything after this game. I just wish they could be more consistant, meaning, not win 3 then lose three.

The rush offense looked better for the Packers, although I guess Indianapolis actually lowered their per game average by holding GB to 116 yards. And Indy's 73 yards rushing on offense was above average for them too. So I'm not sure that the Packers really improved anything, I think they just match up very well with the Colts.

Woodson for MVP?

Woodson has been stepping up lately. He almost seems better without Harris, maybe it's just because teams aren't throwing to Woodson's side as much, but he has come up with some pretty big plays (more than just INTs) this season.

As if! Teams aren't throwing to Woodson's side as much because he's tied for the lead league in INTs and his man is never open.

Well, his man never being open is what I was saying, that's how good he is. Teams won't throw to the side of the field where the defensive's CB is covering the WR like a blanket.

Yes! I think they're actively going for it. That would also explain the safety.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3643295

Really though, all those picks for a guy who has never played a full season, broke 1000 YDs once in 4 years, and has maxed out at 8 TDs? The most interesting thing on his profile page is that he's 7 days younger than me and he's from Odessa.


Jeremy Wrote - 10/14/2008 @ 11:17:04 PM
Still. That team was underachieving before. Even with Johnson at QB for the near future, it's hard to believe any team where Roy Williams is a clear #2 won't be a force to be reckoned with.

Also, to be fair, those yards and those 8 TD's were probably 60% of the Lions offense those seasons.


Not that hard actually. 4-2 before the trade, 4-2 after the trade in Romo games (1-2 in Johnson games, which if Williams was so good he should've been able to help out more with the backup QB in). Although to be fair to you comment he isn't the clear #2 there, the depth chart currently has him as a backup, plus the starting and backup TEs and RBs are ahead of him in catches as well.

9 games with Dallas, 17 catches, 194 yards, 1 TD

For a 1st round pick alone that's a crappy deal, and Dallas threw in a 3rd, 6th, and 7th to boot.

Yeah, it's safe to say the Cowboys are almost inexplicably struggling. Even with their problems, they're the one team I would least like the Vikings to play, should they make the playoffs. They just seem like if they get their act together they could put 60 up on you no problem. (Of course, now Barber is hurt, so who knows.)

Edit: They really gave all that up? Man. That's unreal. Throw in a second and you could get Boldin and Fitz from the Cardinals for that.
