Well I'm stuck with the Lions-Ravens, but at least I've got organic chemistry hw to do. Lions might win in spite of themselves though.

Must be playing at Ford Field for the first time is bringing out the worst in the Ravens, 16 penalties for 99 yards and a couple of ejections. Terrible teams to watch otherwise, other than Kevin Jones who just won't go down.

I agree. It is affecting him. After a couple of sacks, he was not moving well. He is hurt, and they aren't going to go anywhere in the playoffs with him at 75%. He should go under the knife the first thing tomorrow morning.

It was Walters. At first they had him confused as Harrison because of the similar body frame. They quickly corrected themselves.

Yeah, but it's the NFC, teams from the West and North could win their divisions with 8-8 records (or worse). The only other likely challengers are Atlanta and TB and they're both in the same division. Not sold on the Giants or 'skins, but they could play out too. The NFC just sucks.

Vikes made some moves over their bye week.

-Udeze had season-ending surgery. Mitrione (rookie) was signed to take his place.
-Loney has been unofficially fired as offensive coordinator, he will remain the offensive line coach.
-Former Vikes defensive coordinator Foge Fazio was hired as a consultant to assist Cottrell.
-Former Rams and Titans offensive coordinator Jerry Rhome was hired as 'offensive consultant' and will effective serve as the new offensive coordinator.
-The front office and coaching staff was taken on 'a retreat' bye Zygi. It is rumored that they were given their notice: turn things around or get your resume together.

The biggest shortcoming of the Vikes thus far has been their coaching. Hopefully this helps remedy the problem (it certainly can't hurt). Vikes finally have an experienced coach calling the plays. While Rhome was fired for being to conservative with the Titans/Rams and is certainly not a stud by any means, he certainly is better than the Tice/Loney horror show this year. Vikes coaching staff was painfully undermanned, this gives them two more sets of eyes to help call shots. Will it turn things around? Who knows, but steps are being taken.

Jags with a great win against the undefeated Bengals yesterday put them to 3-2. That might seem like an average record, but they have lost to Denver and Indianapolis, who are a a combined 9-1.

What a tough start to the season the Jags have had:

They've played Seattle, at Indianapolis, at NY Jets, Denver, and Cincinnati so far. With Pittsburgh next week, things don't get easier. After the bye week though, it's smooth sailing, with only St. Louis and Indianapolis being the tough games.

Bengal fan here. That wasn't the prettiest of games. The Jags should've won by a lot more after the first half the Bengals played.

I have to say that I wasn't impressed by Leftwich. It seems like he throws the ball as hard as he can every single time. Seems like it makes it pretty tough on his receivers.

Anyways, congrats to the Jags.

Nope. You can count on him for a fumble or a pick every game and the way Brady was playing, he would of made the Falcons pay.

The sad thing was even after watching how badly the Ravens wanted to give it away, the Lions tried their hardest to refuse. I didn't think it was possible for the winning QB of a game to have a rating less than 50.0, I figured you got if that if your team just won (sarcasm), Harrington got a 34.1 (worse than the loss against the Bears). If the Lions were in the NFC, not to mention the NFC North, they would be as bad as Houston.

Is Garcia still hurt? Put in Orlovsky, grab Erik Kramer out of the TV booth, maybe Charlie Batch is bored standing on the sidelines, something.

Actually, all night, receivers were dropping easy passes.

Leftwich is the ironman. Gets hit all the time, but gets up just as quickly. :yo:

That was an awful, awful call. If it is indeed in the rulebook that a kick returner has the right to catch the ball, unimpeded even after he touches it, then that's an awful rule. There's just nothing that anyone can write here to change my mind on that.

And then, they call a personal foul on Polamalu for holding onto McCardell's shoulder pads after he went down, but then call nothing when McCardell grabs Polamalu's facemask.

Merry Christmas Chargers - 30 yards.

clefty
10-10-2005, 11:36 PM
Might not have a choice. Maddox was hurt this morning, right?

Could be moot point in the end, it depends how the scans look for Ben. But there have been bad knee injuries come about from much more innocuous incidents than that one. Look at Deuce McAllister's injury, he simply stepped off his right foot and buckled his knee. So you never know.

Riggins
10-11-2005, 12:17 PM
I hope the Roethlisberger injury isn't too bad, only serious enough to miss next week against the Jags. ;)

edit: they are saying it is a hyper-extended knee and bone bruise, not ruled out for next week.
