NFL Week 10

Mon Nov 15, 2010 12:35 am

What a wonderful sunny,Sunday SoCal day.I went out and enjoyed a rare breakfast at Denny's in the winter time,cut the lawn and washed the truck,stress free! Feels great.Why,I even decided to start NFL week 10 thread.Life is good!

That's because the Chargers are off this week.(lol)In fact, I think they should take off next week,too.Because things in AFC West seem to getting a lot tighter when they don't play.The Chargers are now back in control of they're own destiny.Which means nobody wants to win the division.

Denver has smacked KC , 49-29.The Chargers are one game out.

Bills got their first win.And what's this? Dallas is leading NYG late in the 4th,33-20.. Change is good. Listening,Spanos?   

How did you're team do?

Well, I'm not sure how my team did. We'll find out in about 20 minutes when they host Brady and the Patriots. I don't think this will end well though. They were upset by the surprising Browns last week, and I don't think they're going to lose this one to the Black n Gold... Has NE ever lost 2 games in a row with Brady behind center? Maybe during the 2002 season, but since then I don't think he has. I really don't want to see Pittsburgh lose, but the odds are against them. Brady is due for a loss to them tho...

I was actually hoping the Browns would beat the Jets, that would've meant one less 6-2 team to deal with. At least Miami beat the Ravens. If the Steelers win, they'll be comfortably in 1st place in the AFC North...

How about those power outages at the new GIants Stadium? Man, if would have been funnier if the game was at Dallas...

Quoting PSA53 (Thread starter):
How did you're team do?

Jets: blow a 7 point lead in the 4th to the Browns, and then manage to score a TD in the last 20 seconds of overtime. For a while, I thought it was going to be a tie. And that would have been as good as a loss when you're up against Mangini and Rob Ryan. There was dignity to uphold here!   

The Jets haven't played a solid game since the Bills in Week 4, but they've still won four out of five since then, so they are acting like a real contender and finding a way to win even when they're not dominant. No style points in the NFL. Also, shades of Eli Manning from three years ago when Sanchez ducked his way out of two sacks to throw downfield for big gains (though obviously not as big a spot). Great game for him. Texans and Bengals to follow, both at home.

Jaguars: Well, at least one Texas team lost today. Not often you see a hail mary pass work, especially like that. My enthusiasm was somewhat tempered by the fact that I turned around from that display of brilliant luck to see the Browns driving unchecked down the field to tie it up late, but still - that's a win you can build off of. Hopefully they do. Browns at home and Giants on the road to follow.

[scofs] Yeah, if you're New-fricking-England (as usual). I guess the only way the Steelers can beat New England is when Brady retires pretty much, and that isn't happening anytime soon. I'm sure if they could get Albert Enstein to coordinate defense, Brady would still shred them...

I'm predicting Pittsburgh will be on life-support for the 2nd half...

Well, at least they host Oakland next week. They better face Oakland as if they're facing, well, who they're facing now! I really don't want to see the Steelers derail like they did last year!

I am still recovering from the Giants' loss to Dallas. (the blackout was somewhat amusing, though).

I cannot believe that the Giants' 40+ yard TD to Hakeem Nicks was called back to a stupid holding penalty that had no bearing on the play. Some OL guy named Boothe, whom I've never heard of, was the culprit. It was late in the 4th quarter, and the Giants were down 33-20. The next play, Manning threw an interception and the game was basically over. Dagger through the heart. That play was the gamechanger.

It goes to show that the 'Boys are an awfully good team after all, despite their horrible play the last few weeks. Maybe the firing of Wade Philips had a strong positive impact in the locker room.

The Bears might be in the same boat. I know what Lovie's going to say: "We're 6-3 and 1-0 in the third quarter" but anyone who watches knows that the Bears are a horribly flawed team. The game this afternoon said more about how dysfunctional the Vikings have become.

And don't get me wrong, I loved that scene at the end of the game with Brett Favre hanging his head as if contemplating what new angles from which to photograph his dong. Must be a sad day at ESPN.

Well, the Steelers sure look disfunctional. I wish New England was my team to follow. I'd rather root for Brady than Ben and our horribly flawed defense. It pains me to say that, but the Steelers, and especially Ben will never rank among Brady or his Patriots... Cowboys, step aside as the most over-rated team. That team is in Pennsylvania...

The only one who can beat Brady is probably God himself; no blasphamy intended here!   

I'm just not happy with Pittsburgh right now. They look like the Bills tonight! This game was over before half time. Ben and his o-line are a bunch of chumps. How many times has he been sacked tonight? I lost count after 4...

About Pittsburgh's defense, me thinks they've been in a prevent scheme the whole damned game. They're not even getting pressure on Brady! What the hell?!!  banghead

Chargers on the bye, but things went well for them like PSA53 said. Now I wonder if maybe Denver is dangerous though after that blowout!

How about the end of the Jaguars-Texans game huh?? In case you didn't see-

I think it was 5 total.

Well, it was certainly a good day for the Pats. Our defense stepped up like I didn't think they would/could. And Brady, of course....

I have to say, I was very surprised that Pittsburgh looked so out of it for the first half and most of the 3rd quarter. And even though we got 5 sacks or so, I think Roethlisberger only actually went down to the ground on 2 or 3 of them - that guy is hard to tackle.

Ah, buck up. You've still got a great team, and the Pats are far from invincible. Pittsburgh had a really bad night and New England was coming off a REALLY bad game...recipe for disaster, IMO. Either team could beat the other on any given night, all else equal.

As for my team, Indy survived Peyton's rough day against the Bengals. I was upset after the game because I'm pretty sure I heard Shannon Sharpe say something along the lines of "Peyton's now getting too old to be any good." Whatever, dude. Peyton's the only reason the banged-up (understatement) Colts are having a winning season. Idiot.

Eh, that may be true. I just hope from this point on Pittsburgh can destroy the living sh$t out of everyone else. Screw the NFL and their over-reactive crap fines. They host Oakland next week, and I want to see a blow out! The looked like absolute garbage last night and all personnel were to blame IMO. How many yards rushing did PIT allow? The last I saw, Mendenhal barely ran all night, and NE's rush offense isn't that great. How else did CLEVELAND's RB gain 184 on them last week? They didn't even try to pressure Brady yesterday, which was a disgrace to all defensive units out there.
I didn't expect Pittsburgh to win, but to be manhandled like that on their own turf? And Ward, for the first time since his rookie season, didn't catch a ball and was knocked in the head. I guess some would see that as karma...

Ok, rant over. If it was up to me, I'd have everyone preping for Oakland next week as if they haven't lost a game. The only way to beat New England is to, well, "beat (up)" New England pretty much...

What I learned from Week 10: I guess the league is turning the Pittsburgh Steelers into a bunch of sissies... Hate to be blunt, but I call it as I see it...

Well, against the Patroits and the Steelers, in play-off games,I cannot find or recall,when the Chargers won against both to move on in the last 5 years.Unfortunately,we didn't get home field advantage in most of these games. But we always had the Colts number.Did well against them.

In the last 5-6 seasons of recent success, that is true. The Chargers have not been able to beat the Patriots or Steelers (nor the Jets for that matter!  )in the 3 playoff meetings between them since 2004. The Chargers managed to upset the Colts in consecutive contests in which SD was given zero chance, but couldn't get past the huge roadblocks of the "perfect" 2007 Pats and eventual Super Bowl winning 2008 Steelers.

While the Chargers have never won in the (NFL) playoffs against NE, SD won its only championship (an AFL title) against the Patriots in 1963, and have beaten PIT 2 of 3 playoff meetings- most notably the 1994 AFC Championship Game that sent them to their only Super Bowl.

If it makes you feel better, the very first (and thusfar, last) NFL game I ever attended was the Chargers-Patriots game in the 2008 season in San Diego. The Pats lost that one 30-10....it was horrendous.

Some news:

Due to health reasons,Alex Spanos will sell a minority share of the San Diego Chargers.The health reasons was not given,but I send Mr.Spanos my concerns and a speedy recovery.

It was said the Goldman-Sachs was hired to sell the teams interest and that an LA investment group was very interest in buying the team.This is opens the door for speculation that the team will move to LA around 2014-15.

Well the Giants have to face a tough Philadelphia team after coming off a tough loss to the Cowboys. I hope that game was just a case of "The Giants were due to lose and Dallas was due to win". I also hope that Philadelphia scored all their points Monday night against Washington and doesn't have it together this coming Sunday. The NFC South and the NFC East are shaping up to be tough decisions, and I see the fight for the playoffs spots (especially the Wild-Cards) going down to the last week.

As for the Bungles, err I mean, Bengals, their season is officially shot (well, it's been that way for a few weeks now). I'm glad I haven't spent $65-$70 or more on a ticket for a game this season since getting up to Ohio. They at least put up an effort against Indy this past week but after recovering the onside kick, they fumble on the next play and Indy is able to run out the clock. Maybe next season...
