nfl observations

1) The Indianapolis Colts are not as good as they have been in past years. Their defense looks worse then ever and they don’t seem able to run the ball in short yardage situations. They may end up making it to the Super Bowl this year, but that will have more to do with the law of averages turning in their favor then the make-up of this particular team.

2) It won’t matter who plays QB in Jacksonville. This team doesn’t have enough to make it to the second round of the playoffs. In fact, they almost mirror the Jay Fiedler led Dolphins of a few years ago. Good enough to win 10-11 in the regular season but that’s about it.

3) The Ravens offense is improved — how could it not be? But please….McNair is limited, Jamal Lewis is washed up and it’s unlikely these guys will generate enough points to win on the road during the playoffs.

4) We’ll believe Marty Schottenheimer doesn’t have a pole stuck up his ass that will keep him from letting loose in January when he submits to a Rebuilding Year body cavity search.

5) Mike Shannahan needs Jake Plummer to pull a groin so he can at least get a glimpse of what Jay Cutler can do. Denver’s defense is good but not good enough to carry them to a SuperBowl Championship unless they get better play from the QuarterBack position.

6) That sound is reality crashing on the New Orleans Saints. Your defense sucks. Admirable effort but you are bound to collapse. Like your levies.

7) I’m still not sold that the Bears are invincible. If Seattle gets healthy and gets the defense straightened out, they can beat Chicago in Chicago. In fact, I’m not convinced that a healthy Giants team can’t give them more of a run for their money then the G-men did last night.

8 Eric Mangini – you are the Coach of the Year. Now get on a diet. You see what Andy Reid looks like. Don’t let yourself go like that.

9) How could Washington spend so much money every year and head into the past two seasons with Mark Brunell at QB? How great would Farve look in a Redskin uniform as he and Gibbs embark on a last season together?

10) Mike Martz to Arizona is the dumbest fucking idea I’ve read about in a long time.

11) Last year the Steelers were 6-5 before they made a run. This year’s Steelers are the 5-4 Dallas Cowboys. All praise to Tomy Romo
