A few more week 2 NFL thoughts
-Apparently there was a Brandon Lloyd sighting in Chicago. As an ex-DC resident, I can only imagine how much they're laughing that Lloyd's only contributions are on SPECIAL TEAMS. What a hack.
-Woah, woah, woah. You mean Matt Ryan isn't going to consistently win games as a rookie? Who knew? A Matt Ryan fall to earth was more predictable than a Yankee double play.
-Is Green Bay that good without Favre? Or is Detroit that bad with Jon Kitna? As long as the answer to one of those questions is 'yes,' I'm happy.
-Um, apparently Herm Edwards is a strong believer of the 'burning this village down in order to save it' school of coaching. Unfortunately for him, when the village gets rebuilt, someone else will be COACHING THE CHIEFS TO WIN THE GAME.
-Minnesota has an unstoppable running back and a 15 point lead. I don't care how good Peyton Manning may be, a team with a great running game should not lose this game. You know who else wouldn't blow this game? A Super Bowl contender. I don't care if it's only Week 2; I ain't buying what Minny's selling.
-I'm not ready for a second go-round of Chicago having everything but a passing game. It was cute the first time when they got to the Super Bowl with Rex Grossman. Now, seeing them try to do it with Kyle Orton, I'm slightly offended as a football fan. For the love of Allah, get yourself a quarterback!
-Norv Turner needs to shut the hell up. Yes, Ed Hochuli screwed up the call. But Mike Shanahan gave you a chance to win the game by making a reckless decision to go for 2 down 1. And you blew it. Next issue.
-Great game last night between the Eagles and Cowboys. I never realized how much, as a Giants fan, I hated the Cowboys. And then I was jumping for joy when Romo screwed up the handoff in his end zone, doing everything but chanting, "E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES!" The one thing I took out of this game: as a Giants fan, I'm scared of both these teams. And only the Cowboys can stop the Cowboys; and maybe Justin Tuck.
