NFL Week 4 Wrap Up

Let's see how we did this week.

Detroit @ Chicago - This was a good game, at least for a half. The Lions came out with some gumption and I think they actually scared the Bears early. Matthew Stafford looked pretty good and he was missing wide open receivers (can't they teach him how to put some air under his throws?). Finally the Bears showed up and and ended up putting Stafford out of the game and they also ran the score up. Good win for the Bears. Inquisitive Mind 1 - 0 for the week.

Cincinnati @ Cleveland - Are you kidding me? The Browns were thisclose to pulling this off, but the Bengals got it done. Derek Anderson didn't help the struggling Browns and it seems as though this loss may have pushed Braylon Edwards over the edge by attacking one of LeBron's boys. Things are going horribly wrong in Cleveland. Inquisitive Mind 2 - 0 for the week.

Seattle @ Indianapolis - Dwight Freeney played and played pretty well for someone who hurt his quad last week. Manning looked great hitting everyone that was on the field. I think I could run patterns and he'd find me. This Colts team is dangerous. Inquisitive Mind 3 - 0 for the week.

New York Giants @ Kansas City - Steve Smith looked like Steve Smith from the Panthers. 134 yards and 2 TDs. Great game for him (he's the #1 reason I lost in Fantasy this week). Giants fans will be on pins and needles after seeing Eli go down on his own. Plantar fasciitis is the culprit, but that's something that will effect him for the rest of the season. If he can't set his feet because one of them hurts, nothing good can come out of this. Inquisitive Mind 4 - 0 for the week.

Baltimore @ New England - Two roughing the passer calls, and a dropped pass late in the 4th quarter. Ray Lewis is right and I wonder how long it'll be before he gets a fine, eventhough he was telling the truth. Inquisitive Mind 4 - 1 for the week.

Tampa Bay @ Washington - They almost made me come through the TV. The Redskins should have blown the Bucs out but they almost lost the dayum game. Almost a 100 by Portis, and Campbell didn't look too bad. Is this something to build on or is this as good as it gets for the Redskins? Inquisitive Mind 5 - 1 for the week.

Tennessee @ Jacksonville - What is happening to the Titans?!?!? Usually a Jeff Fisher team can play defense, but this team can't play period. I'm hearing chants for Vince Young already. That's exactly what this team needs, a change of some sort. Inquisitive Mind 5 - 2 for the week.

Oakland @ Houston - The Texans still can't seem to run the ball, but who needs all of that when you're playing the Raiders. This was an ugly game and anyone who saw more than 2 minutes of this game, I apologize for you losing that much of your life with no chance of getting that time back. The only thing worse than losing this game is having your head coach arrested. Inquisitive Mind 6 - 2 for the week.

New York Jets @ New Orleans - The Jets defense decided to put on white and gold this weekend. The Saints made Senor Sanchez look like a rookie QB by applying pressure to the young QB at every opportunity. Drew Brees had his worse game so far this season and his team won by 14. Sucks to be him, huh? Inquisitive Mind 6 - 3 for the week.

Buffalo @ Miami - How many of you are waiting to see TO lose it? I personally am just tuning in to Sportscenter everyday for the next two weeks to see when it's going to happen. He can't hold it in much longer. This Bills team stinks. I mean they are terrible, and it doesn't look good for the rest of the year. Inquisitive Mind 7 - 3 for the week.

St. Louis @ San Francisco - Wow. The 49ers left no doubt how serious they are about this season. They destroyed the Rams with mostly defense, but also an all around effort without Frank Gore. We'll see if they can hold it together for the rest of the year. Inquisitive Mind 8 - 3 for the week.

Dallas @ Denver - What in the hockeysticks is going on with the Cowboys. You have a monster offensive line and then go to Denver and lose a game to a small defensive front? Tony Romo sucked again. The running game was ok, but this game was won in the trenches and the Broncos showed us more heart and game than anything. They have given up a total of 26 points this year. 26 points. I'll agree they haven't played many high powered teams, but they played their schedule and they have played well. The Broncos are 4 - 0. Maybe they know what they're doing in Denver. Inquisitive Mind 8 - 4 for the week.

San Diego @ Pittsburgh - Ok, if the hurry up offense works for you that good, why not go to that for a while at the start of a game. The Chargers looked helpless until late in the 3rd and 4th quarter. Once they got their hurry up going, they put up points. The Steelers were thisclose to letting another one get a way. The Chargers have to turn it around soon if they are going to the Superbowl. They have a chance, but a few more games like this and it's over. Inquisitive Mind 8 - 5 for the week.

Green Bay @ Minnesota - This was a good game. I don't like watching Favre cry, so that is one bad thing about this. Aaron Rodgers will be great this year if they can keep him upright. He's been sacked at least 20 times so far this season, that's almost 5 times a game. Favre looked good in this game with the Packers deciding to take Peterson out of the game (55 yards, 1 TD, 1 fumble lost). The Vikings defense can bring it and they are pretty much solid all the way around, so this bodes well for them. The Packers got themselves back in this game, so at least they can take some positive away from this. Inquisitive Mind 9 - 5 for the week.

Not too bad, but I gotta get better. 39 - 23 for the season. Am I catching up yet?
