Official NFL Thread Week 2:How'd Your Team Do?

Mon Sep 18, 2006 11:27 pm

I got busy yesterday, and realized that I could not find this up, so here it is...a day late, but MNF has not yet happened and my fantasy league is still in play for this matchup period, so let's talk about it!

FALCONS!!!!

Two weeks in a row we've held teams out of our endzone, even though they've made it to the red zones, and we ran for 306 yards this game against TAMPA BAY!!!!

I'm not buying Super Bowl tickets yet, and I'm worried about Mike getting hurt being himself, but damn...it's exciting!

The Patriots survived a burst of offense from the Jets in the third quarter and start of the fourth and got out with another W.

The Buffalo Defense manhandled the Miami Dolphins while their offense put up enough points and controled the clock well enough to score the win.

True enough, and the Pats usually win ugly. Then again, string together 14 or so of those and it's not too hard to take.

There are no such things as a pretty loss or an ugly victory, unless if you win you lose a key player.
The Jets only played the 2nd half of the game, but do seem to be a lot better than last year. Just hope Pennington can stay healthy.
The Giants got a great OT win over a division opponent who was looking pretty good until OT.

Well, the Hawks won. Was a little worried about the hype of the Cards, but when the game got rolling, a 21-10 finish set my mind at ease. Bugs me that the Eagles just let their game go.

The Broncos won but they didn't deserve it. Shanahan needed to give Plummer the boot.

The Eagles went into the 4th quarter leading 24-7 over the NY Giants only to crash and burn. In a nutshell, the game went into overtime (tied at 24-24) with the Giants ending it with a touchdown. Final score: 30-24.

Oh well, at least the Patriots (my other team) beat the other New York team (the Jets). Final score: 24-17

At least they won... unlike the other Super Bowl XXXIX team.

Yeah, but T.O. broke his finger and will be out for a few weeks (I'll let you decide whether this is a blessing or a curse for the Cowboys). He could miss the first face-off with the Eagles on Oct. 8.

I think TO breaking his finger will help out Terry Glenn, and he will be able to really showcase his talent.

I will lay money down that TO will be back for PHL..

Dallas has a bye week now, then the Titans...So he will have 2 weeks to heal.

The bolts?

Kicked the ever living chit out of Tennessee. This after eating up and chitting out the faiders a week ago. So far, so good. Want to see some competition first.

Judging from the schedule and play by future opponents to this point:

Faiders - Win (1-0)
Titans - Win (2-0)
Ravens - Should be a win, Ravens didn't exactly man handle the Raiders the way the Chargers did (3-0)
Pittsburgh - Should be a good game, goes either way, but a win making them 4-0 would be gigantic (3-1)
49ers - Win (4-1)
Chiefs - Win (5-1)
Rams - Win (6-1)
Browns - Win (7-1)
Bengals - See Pittsburgh (7-2) - If 8-0 going into this game, the Chargers are better than I thought and will win.
Donkey's - The finaly get a win in Denver (8-2)
Faiders - Who's kidding who they suck - Win (9-2)
Billy Goats - Losman is toast (10-2)
Donkey's - Take them again (11-2) - Playoff birth
Chiefs - Win, again (12-2) - Division conquered
Seahawks - A what are we made of game, if the Chargers win, they could be "that good" and headed to the Super Bowl, if they lose, it's the playoffs but a good start into next year (12-3)
Cardinals - Win 13-3, 12-4 if the game means nothing.

Odds on 12-4 record unless they implode. 9-7 would be disapointing considering who they play. If they are "that good" a perfect record is not impossible, certainly 10 or 11 wins is attainable. If they go 4-0, they could run the table, and end up like Colts. All show, but no big show. Then again, they could emerge as the next Patriots. The vast majority of the team is young and under contract for a while.

Living in obnoxious Packer Land and not being a fan... yesterday was just priceless.

Ahh, a U.S. dominated thread, lol.

But yes, the Patriots did well and won again. As for my fantasy team... 114 points (thanks to another great day from the Baltimore defense).  biggrin

Giants won! Played awful for the first 3 quarters but came back to tie it in the 4th and win it in OT. Next week the Giants visit Seattle. If both teams play like they did last year when they played each other then this game will be a very good one.

No doubt. They should play 8 weeks, then everyone have a bye, then the last 8 weeks.

I see a VERY HIGH draft pick in the Browns future.

Sigh.......

Seahawks defense just manhandled the Cardinals offense yesterday, looks like another 6-10 season upcoming unless they can get the offense line act together. What is really bad news for us in the Phoenix metro area, since they finally sold out this year we get sixteen of their games on tv, don't know if I can handle that, well I least I don't live in Detroit or Cleveland.

Yep, and I can't wait til Deion Branch makes his debut, although Darron Jackson looked pretty good catching the bomb Hasselbeck. That might save his spot on the roster when Branch goes ahead of him.

What is really bad news for the investors is the fact that they paid for that great new stadium, and looked as bad as they did yesterday. Oh well, at least you have the suns, lol,

At least I don't have to worry about rowdy Lions fans, cuz there aren't any. I can relax until basketball season starts. Oh snap, the Tigers.

The Bucs are garbage. At least the offense is slacking severely. Simms needs to learn how to throw a pass over his O-linemen and Cadillac needs to get going quick.

Yeah, but the Hawks need to get more on their game for the next two weekends. I think they have looked pretty soft during the first two games.

2-0, but next week at Indy is going to be tough.
