-- Jaguars-- ’84 Oilers were last team to lose first six games by double figure margins; Jags are at seven and counting. Only game they’ve covered was as 27-point underdogs.
-- Buccaneers—No wins, three staph infections, QB was fired, with coach soon to follow. Not their finest moment.
-- Vikings—Scooped up Josh Freeman, QB Bucs fired, for some unknown reason; he threw 53 passes Monday, despite having Adrian Peterson behind him. This is called bad coaching.
-- Browns—0-6 when Weeden starts; so Jason Campbell gets his turn this week. This team has some talent, they went 3-0 when Hoyer started.
-- Giants—Has any team ever looked less happy to win a game than the Giants Monday night? They’ve lost eight games in row on road, Eagles have lost nine in row at home. Something has to give Sunday at the Linc.
-- Saints—Probably should be higher on this list, but I have the only 7-0 team 4th, so then again, maybe not.
-- Colts—Jim Irsay did a masterful job deflecting pressure off his young QB last week, with Peyton Manning coming to town. Indy gave other defenses a road map on how to defend Denver. All those teams need now is Robert Mathis to terrorize #18, but only the Colts have him.
-- Chiefs—Still have two games left with Denver; would they sign up for a split right now?
-- 49ers—Won/covered last four games, have vacation in England this week against the hapless Jags.
-- Seahawks—I’m sure they’re terrified of Kellen Clemens Monday night, but the '99 Rams lost their starting QB to injury and won a Super Bowl five months later, so unusual things can happen.
-- Broncos—You don’t lose the top spot because of a 39-33 loss at Indy; at one point, when down 19, Denver was 200-1 to win the game; 20 minutes later, they were 1.35-1, before the INT when they were down 36-30. In-game wagering is wild.
The Waterboy scores a Touchdown and the Sunday Spooky Express......
-- As of this morning, Fresno State is America's team; they're 7-0 with two OT wins, a 41-40 win and another game they led 42-3 that ended 42-37. They blocked a 37-yard San Diego State FG on the last play of regulation last night, then won in OT after blowing a 28-14 4th quarter lead. Fun team and they cashed the Over for the Express last night which makes them higher up on my fun list.
-- If Texas wins Big 12, does Mack Brown get to keep his job? After its 30-7 win at struggling TCU, Longhorns are 4-0 in league play. This game had a weather delay of 3+ hours, but Texas was in control before that. As for TCU, does the phrase, "big fish, small pond" sound good right now?
-- San Jose State 51, Wyoming 44-- Cowboys led 16-0 early and 30-14 in third quarter, but gave up 482 passing yards to David Fales. Not often a team gains 599 yards and loses, but Wyoming did.
-- Connor Shaw is a warrior; the injured South Carolina QB came off the bench to complete 20-29 passes for 201 yards in a quarter and a half, leading Gamecocks back from a 17-0 deficit to a 27-24 OT win after Mizzou clanked the tying FG off the upright. Its the stuff legends are made of.
-- Al Golden is working miracles in Miami; Hurricanes are 7-0, despite trailing by 10+ points in each of their last three games- they play Florida St. next Saturday night, in what should be a very interesting game.......... seeing as Florida State was beating NC State 35-0 Saturday. In the first quarter. Seminoles are playing really, really well.
-- Baylor 59, Kansas 14-- Game was 38-nil at the half; think Charlie Weis tells recruits he has a "decided schematic advantage" over Art Briles? The next person who hires Weis as anything but a night watchman needs to be fired on the spot.
-- Minnesota 34, Nebraska 23-- Gophers had lost 16 games in a row to Nebraska by an average score of 40-9; now they're bowl eligible after running ball down Cornhuskers' throats for 271 yards. That doesn't happen much.
-- As far as the end of the World Series game goes, the umpires called the play right; it wasn't a pretty end to an interesting game, but then again, this ain't the WWE, where everything is scripted for a maximum of drama. If you are a Red Sox fan and are bitching at the umps, try bitching at the guy who threw the ball into LF, or your manager, who didn't walk John Jay with first base open and light-hitting Pete Kozma on deck.
-- UNLV 27, Nevada 22-- Rebels won the Fremont Cannon for first time in nine years and are now 5-3 and need one more win to be bowl eligible. It says on my computer screen that the cannon is the most expensive trophy in college football, so I'm passing that knowledge on. Do with it what you will.
-- Ohio State 63, Penn State 14-- Wow. In two true road games, Nittany Lions have allowed 107 points. Urban Meyer challenged the spot of the ball on a play when he was winning by 49 points. Oy.
-- On October 27, Duke, Tulane, Rice, Minnesota are all 6-2. In football. Is this a great country or what?
-- WE CAN KICK AND WE CAN THROW, WE CAN PLAY FOOTBALL, WE ARE SO GREAT.
Not sure what I can add for tonights game. Had a clean sweep on the thread with the weeks plays so no sense to ruin it now. :)
The world is on Seattle. I already played them at -10 and a teaser using the Packers last night. With the line skyrocketing and the public all over Seattle, not doing anything else. It should go Under. But the best play of the night is probably St. Louis
So will be watching the World Series more than the football I imagine. GL
