Bad week. Lots of work (the day job) and lots of bad picks this week. Let's see what happened. (I'm already crying)
Tennessee @ Detroit - Talk about Happy Thanksgiving. The Titans pummelled the Lions on turkey day and it wasn't even close. Not even a smidgen. The Titans found their running game and the defense played like they were playing against a jayvee high school team. Inquisitive Mind 1 - 0 for the week.
Dallas @ Seattle - Another blowout. The Cowboys showed that they are a much much better team with Romo behind center. The scary thing is that Marion Barber got hurt. They need him if they are going to do anything in the playoffs. Inquisitive Mind 2 - 0 for the week.
Philadelphia @ Arizona - Anyone remember last week? Who cares about overtime rules now? Donovan McNabb showed the type of quarterback he really is and he looks like the better man out of this whole deal. Andy Reid, how do you look now? Inquisitive Mind 3 - 0 for the week.
San Francisco @ Buffalo - 'You won ugly' is what Mike Singletary told his crew and he wasn't lying. The 49ers beat a lethargic Bills team who has fallen from grace after a great start to the year. Trent Edwards was knocked out of the game and only Marshawn Lynch showed up. Inquisitive Mind 3 - 1 for the week.
Baltimore@ Cincinnati - The Ravens are good but are they THAT good? The Bengals were destroyed. I don't even know what else to say. Inquisitive Mind 4 - 1 for the week.
Indianapolis @ Cleveland - Do moral victories save your job? I'm not sure, but this sure seemed like a moral victory. The Browns played about as well as they could, held the Colts to 10 points and no offensive touchdowns. I hope Romeo Crennel's residence is rented. Inquisitive Mind 5 -1 for the week.
Carolina @ Green Bay - I can't believe that Steve Smith caught that ball. I mean that had to be one of the best catches in the league this year. By making that he salvaged the blistering that the Panthers were going to get from me for losing this game. The Packers look like they are done for the year. They just seem to be running out of gas. We'll see next week. Inquisitive Mind 5 - 2 for the week.
Miami @ St. Louis - This game was closer than I imagined. The Dolphins couldn't really shake the Rams and thus the close score. A late Dan Carpenter field goal finally put the game away. Inquisitive Mind 6 - 2 for the week.
Tampa Bay @ New Orleans - I was sweating, when the Saints came back to tie this game, I just thought that the Bucs had given this one away. Cadillac Williams got a touchdown and we're happy since it's been almost 15 months since his last. The defense sealed the game with an INT after a Matt Bryant field goal. Inquisitive Mind 7 - 2 for the week.
New York Giants @ Washington - I will say this again, the Redskins seem to tailor their play calling all the way back when they play the Giants. It's like playing Madden and instead of being able to use an entire playbook, you have like 6 plays. Whatever those 6 plays are, they definitely need to rework them. Clinton Portis gets hurt, and Jason Campbell is making me throw up in my own mouth. Inquisitive Mind 8 - 2 for the week.
Atlanta @ San Diego - I wonder if the Chargers are thinking they got rid of the wrong back? Yes, LT is a HOFamer in the making, but he's been hurt the last two seasons and hasn't played well for a long time. Michael Turner is burning through the league. I told you that the Chargers were missing 'something',...that something is the playoffs. Inquisitive Mind 8 - 3 for the week.
Pittsburgh @ New England - I said that defense wins games and then went against the better defense. Shame on me. The Steelers dismantled the Pats and made Cassel look like the scrub that I thought he was. Well, not a scrub, but definitely not the guy he has been resembling on the field over the last few weeks. Inquisitive Mind 8 - 4 for the week.
Denver @ New York Jets - Well, when you're up, you pile on. That's what the Broncos did all day in a rainy Giants Stadium. The Jets looked like the team that lost to the Raiders. Yes, those Raiders. The Jets have to regroup after this loss. Inquisitive Mind 8 - 5 for the week.
Kansas City @ Oakland - Even the Chiefs beat the Raiders. What happened to the Jets? Anyway, Larry Johnson in pads made this at least worth the watch. He gave the Chiefs the running game that Tyler Thigpen needed and they pulled off this win. Inquisitive Mind 8 - 6 for the week.
Chicago @ Minnesota - What were the Bears thinking? All they had to do win this game and they are leading their division with a few games left. They go to the Vikings and get whupped. Bernard Berrian (99 yard TD reception) and Jared Allen (3 sacks) made the Bears day hell. This is going to haunt the Bears when it comes down to winning the Norris. Inquisitive Mind 8 - 7 for the week.
Jacksonville @ Houston - Talk about a team that has taken several steps back. This Jaguars team was supposed to win this year. I know they lost their entire offensive line to injury this year, but they really can't get it together. No running game and no passing game. They can play spoiler for the rest of the year, but I'm not sure if they can even do that. Inquisitive Mind 8 - 8 for the week.
