NFL Week 9 Wrap Up

I guess breakfast is a bad thing. Let's see the damage for the week.

Washington @ Atlanta - When the most exciting part of the game is when the opposing coach goes after his former player during a hit on the sidelines, you know you're watching the Redskins play. Coach Mike Smith was fined $15K, while DeAngelo Hall wasn't fined at all. Hey, Smith can say his team won the game and Hall can say that he didn't lose any money during or after the game. Small victories are still victories. Inquisitive Mind 1 - 0 for the week.

Arizona @ Chicago - Boy was I wrong about this one. I kind of went homer on this and got whupped, along with the Bears. This was sad. Tommie Harris thrown out of the game after the 4th play? Question: Why do you hit a dude in the face mask when he has a helmet on? The only thing that would have served Harris better was if he would have broken his hand. Stupid is as stupid does. Inquisitive Mind 1 - 1 for the week.

Baltimore @ Cincinnati - Surprised, is about all I can say. The Bengals must be for real, or they just know how to beat the Ravens. Benson got another 100 yards against that defense. Amazing. Inquisitive Mind 1 - 2 for the week.

Houston @ Indianapolis - A helluva game with the Texans thisclose to winning. The Colts march on setting up a showdown with the Patriots. Inquisitive Mind 2 - 2 for the week.

Miami @ New England - I was sweating, along with the Patriots, for a while during this game. The Dolphins showed up and almost pulled the shocker. I think Coach Sparano said it best in the post game, 'that team (the Patriots) know how to win games.' Inquisitive Mind 3 - 2 for the week.

Green Bay @ Tampa Bay - The Packers are going to want this one back at the end of the year, mark my words. They went down to Tampa and lost this game. Yes Tampa won, but this Packers team is better than this. Brett Favre wouldn't have let them lose that game. Inquisitive Mind 3 - 3 for the week.

Kansas City @ Jacksonville - The Chiefs made a run at this one too. Without Larry Johnson (now released) the Chiefs were able to ride Matt Cassel to make this one interesting. The Jaguars almost gave it away in the end. Inquisitive Mind - 4 - 3 for the week.

Carolina @ New Orleans - These Saints are for real. They have won in ever way they can. They got down early against the Panthers and then turned it around and won. Someone has to beat this team because if they get home field advantage, I don't know if anyone can beat them in that dome. Inquisitive Mind 5 - 3 for the week.

Detroit @ Seattle - The Seahawks had to win this game. I mean they were playing the Lions for heavens sake. Not much to say except they showed us they have a pulse. Inquisitive Mind 6 - 3 for the week.

Tennessee @ San Francisco - Hey, I guess the QB change is something that is positively effecting the Titans team. I'm all for getting rid of Jeff Fisher right now. He should have done this 5 weeks ago. The Titans scored 17 points in the 4th quarter to win this game. Yes, Vince Young was best when he handed the ball off, but that seems to work well for the Vikings and people are in love with Favre. Inquisitive Mind 7 - 3 for the week.

San Diego @ New York Giants - Wow! I think most of you know I'm not an Eli Manning fan, but I like the Giants on defense. Well, that defense is starting to suck right now. I can't blame Eli all the time. The defense let a decent Chargers offense drive the field for the game winning touchdown. Inquisitive Mind 7 - 4 for the week.

Dallas @ Philadelphia - The Eagles looked pedestrian in this game. I'm not sure why, they just couldn't get it done and neither could McNabb. Inquisitive Mind 7 - 5 for the week.

Pittsburgh @ Denver - This turned into a shootout and it showed that Kyle Orton isn't the QB you want leading your team if you're down 10 or more points. Has everyone figured out the Broncos already? Tom Jackson is somewhere crying in his milk. Inquisitive Mind 8 - 5 for the week.

I thought it would be worse, but it wasn't. I still want a perfect week, so I've got a lot of work to do. For the year, it puts us at 84 - 45. Still running behind the pros.
