NFL wrapup – week 1

September 12, 2006 at 11:18 am (Sports rants)

Tuesday Morning wrap-ups of the week, which include little bits here and there –

Miami vs. Pittsburgh – Daunte definitely did not look 2004, definitely looked 2005.  Not a good sign for the Dolphins.  I’ll give him a break though, 1st week after a serious surgery with a new team.  He will need to step it up.  Ronnie Brown got 2 TD’s, but barely any yardage.  Same goes for his counterpart from back in the Auburn days, where the caddilac was seemingly on cinderblocks without wheels, rushing for only 24 yards.  yikes.

Pats vs. Buffalo – the Bills shocked me, taking a 17-7 lead, scoring off a quick Brady fumble.  I actually thought they were going to pull off a huge upset.  I was wrong, losman made a mistake that High School kids are told not to do.  Brady looked bad without good WR’s.  Lets Hope Chad Jackson comes up HUGE.  Sidenote:  the pats got SCREWED with Branch.  and GOOD for branch.  The pats dared him to get better money from someone else, and he did.  2 people offered 6 million more GUARANTEED MONEY.  They were even willing to give N.E. a #1 Pick, even though branch was a SECOND ROUNDER.  New England asked for too much, Branch called them out on it, threatened to get an arbitrator, and N.E. caved in.  I hope Branch will become Seatle’s #1 WR soon.

New Orleans vs Cleveland – 2 Words: Reggie. Bush.  This guy truly brings a dynamic to their offense.  They have a true up-the-middle RB ins Deuce McAllister, and a guy who can break a 40 yard run just as quickly as catching a 40 yard diving TD reception.  Wow.  I thought it was too much hype.  Granted, it was cleveland, but the Browns Defense isn’t as bad as you would think. 

Seattle vs Detroit – how the HELL did this game suck so hard?  the game was 9 – 6.  thats 5 Field goals.  hwo the HELL did Martz’s Detroit offense not do anything?  how the HELL did seatle not hang 40 on these fools?  Seatle had the leagues most potent offense last year WITHOUT their main Wideout in Darrell Jackson.  something has to be wrong.

NYJ  vs Tennesee – the first half of this game sucked HARD.  i was debating playing Madden instead of watching this crap.  the second half was a LOT better, where Pennington FINALLY played like he should have been playing.  the Jets defense was nothing to F with, either.  Although this 1 win will be 25% of their total wins this year.

Cincinatti vs KC – LJ didn’t do as well as he should have.  the Bengals had 6 or 7 sacks.  Surprisingly, no one missed their parole meeting after the game, either.

Denver vs St. Louis – Wow Jake plummer sucks a lot.  in one of my fantasy Leagues, the dude scored a NEGATIVE 12!!!!  weekly update as for starting Denver RB: Tatum Bell.

Baltimore vs. Tampa Bay – as I mentioned earlier, Cadillac was in neutral, Chris Simms was in reverse, and the Ravens Defense was like a mack truck with 8 gallons of NOs.  This was probably a fun game to watch defensively, too bad I didn’t get a chance to see it.

Atlanta vs Carolina – And i thought this was actually going to be a game.  Vick was pretty good, but he needs to step up the passing game as well as scare other teams a little more with the run.  I wonder why they dont have vick run all the way to the left, fake a run, bring all the Defenders with him, then toss a pass ALL the way to the right, and have the WR break straight through.

Philly vs. Houston – David Carr can play, as long as he’s standing up.  Donnovan looked great, but we are talking about Houston’s Defense.  Lets see how he does against the G-men. hey Rich, ERIC MOULDS SUCKS A BIG FAT DONKEY DICK.

Chicago vs. Green Bay – its not that the Bears offense is any good, it’s that the Packers Defense is THAT BAD.  if REX GROSSMAN lights you up, you’ve got some issues.

San Francisco vs Arizona – ALL OFFENSE.  this would have been fun to watch, too.  Frank gore was a BEAST, Arizona’s passing game was SICK, and it actually came down to a 4th and 12, and Alex Smith did not look bad at all (finally) as he definitely was able to lead his team through some plays.  they did lose, though, which was obviously going to happen.

TO vs. Jacksonville – this is really what it seemed to be.  Every freaking camera over was to TO.  I DONT CARE ABOUT THAT FOOL.  the media has made me sick of TO more than TO has made me sick of TO.  i don’t know how that’s even possible.  Drew Brees looked flat-out BAD.  (he got outplayed by Kurt WARNER)

Indy vs NY – good game, RUINED by all those clips of peyton and Eli being all faggoty as kids.  Seriously, i watched more of Peyton and Eli during commercials and those clips then i did in the game. NY played as best they could have against the Colts, I’ll give them that.

Minnesota vs. Redskins – I had no interest in watching this, and rightfully so.  It blew hard.  who really cares who wins, Portis wasn’t starting, so it wasn’t the redskins best anyway.  But the redskins have lost 5 in a row now if you include the pre-season.

San Diego vs. Oakland – HAHAH.  Oakland sucked harder than any other team has sucked before.  I think the 49ers could beat the raiders 6 out of 10 times.  And of course I can’t type this without saying that Ladainian Tomlinson looked FLAT-OUT amazing, and Gates got his with a TD.  the 3rd quarter was TERRIBLE though, where for about 10 of the 15 minutes, all they did was go 3rd and long, and punt back and forth to each other.

There you have it, all games wrapped up, in a nice little package.  Maybe by the end of this week i’ll put in my premonitions.
