Week 2 NFL Thoughts

Copyright (c) 2006-2017

  • Is it just me, or is Chris Simms the poor man's Kyle Boller?

  • Will Miami average more pass completions than sacks allowed? I'm guessing Daunte Culpepper will get fairly used to sitting down. Either way, he's sooooooo getting cut from my fantasy team.

  • I'm convinced that Indy runs up the score on every team they play to instill fear in their opponents. Until they encounter a formidable team in the playoffs.

  • Two weeks into the Art Shell experiment, I'm still waiting for Ashton Kucher to jump out and tell me I've been Punk'd.

  • The only thing, I'm guessing, that Kutcher will be jumping out of is a window when he realizes just what appearing in a movie with Kevin Costner does to your career.

  • What is that sound? Did John Madden raid the buffet again? Oh, wait. That was just the Eagles choking.

  • Is Drew Brees really that good? Really?

  • Oakland devastated in consecutive games so they fall to 0-2? The only way this could get better is if Kate Beckinsdale were sitting on my lap feeding me dried figs right now.

  • I really hope there is a silver lining for Brett Favre. I know there won't be, but a guy like that deserves some relief from the season he's inevitably going to have.

  • A big thumbs up to Brad Childress for getting the Vikings off to a good start. It's a good thing, too. The only other thing he's qualified for is porn star - by virtue of his moustache.

  • I like the trend of Gary Kubiak trading for a has-been or never-was running back every week. I think the NFL should eliminate the trading deadline just so it can continue throughout the year.

  • Wherefore art thou, Joe Gibbs?

  • Two weeks and no T.O. outbursts? I feel so cheated. Maybe Drew Rosenhaus can stage saving another kid so we can finally get some excitement up in this joint.

  • So St. Louis beats the Broncos then lays an egg against, um, the 49ers? Same story, different day. The Rams just can't be consistent enough to compete - even in the NFC.

  • Don't get too comfortable, B-more. You have wins against Tampa Bay and Oakland. Your glory days are already behind you.

  • I already miss Dick Vermiel's tears.

  • Things are already setting up great for another Marty Schottenheimer meltdown. He owns the patent on that, right?

  • 9-6? Maybe the Donkeys and K.C. should be playing in the S.E.C.

  • I had Arizona as a sleeper team to open the year, and, yup, still sleeping.

  • Seriously, Ashton. Where are you hiding? Ashton?

    Obviously, the goal in golf is to get the ball into the hole, in as few strokes as possible. More important than learning a specific technique, to enable the possibility, is to understand the learning process in the game of golf. If you learn to hit the ball fast and straight the first time, then you will naturally lower your handicap. So, for those who are truly interested in improving their golf game, one should strive to make the first stroke hit its mark. This article will guide you through a different way of thinking about how to improve your golf game.

    As a bonafide Atlanta Braves fan, let me just say that I don't easily excite over specific players. The whole game is so diluted with the comings and goings of various players, it's hard sometimes to keep up with who is on what team this season. I mean, you know the drill...

    At the beginning of 2009, the Western Conference has it all: a very dominant team, parity and a lot of NBA Lottery contestants. As the season creeps towards the mid-way point, the Lakers hope to stay consistent and healthy, while the contenders hope to position themselves for a post All-Star-break run into the playoffs.

    2008 NFL Season Outlook
    Written by: Mark Anderson | Distributed: 2008-10-29 | Word Count: 1233 | Page Views: 2132 | Votes: 4 | Rating: 3.00
    The 2008 NFL season is upon us and as always, there is plenty of excitement in almost every NFL city across the country. Every fan is hopeful about their team at the start of the season, but when it comes down to it, the best teams will always end up at the top of the heap. Only 12 teams can make it the playoffs out of 32, so the odds aren't always on your side. But as the Giants showed the world last year: once you're in the playoffs, anything can happen and anybody can win the whole thing and go home as Super Bowl Champion.

    When I watched the Opening Ceremony, I was entranced. It began with giant footprints in the sky made of fireworks, leading the way to the stadium. The stadium was built specifically for the Olympics in the shape of a bird's nest, which is considered a lucky symbol in China. It was amazing.

    It will be a tight division race, coming down to St. Louis or Arizona. The value play is on St. Louis, at 6.50 to 1 odds, to win the division (the pre-season number on Arizona is 3.25 to 1 odds to win the division). The better play here is St. Louis to win OVER 6.5 games. Our scorecasting models have the 2008 Rams winning 9 games; a deviation of 2.5 games from the Vegas total - which correlates to a strong betting line play.

    With every billowing turn, Alberta's Rocky Mountains prove to skiers why the snow here is the stuff of legends. Though it's best known as champagne powder, the locals also refer to it as "blower" because the lightest puff of breath will spread a handful like so much dust. On the slopes the powder's lightness makes it easy to ski. It swirls around your boots and makes big fans with every turn.

    The demands on NFL teams have grown exponentially over the past couple of decades. It wasn't too long ago that many NFL players, even starters, felt the need to get or hold a "regular" job during the offseason, and used the time spent in training camp to get into playing shape for the regular season. It also used to be that teams played up to six preseason games as opposed to the current four or maybe five exhibitions.

    Despite winning 86 games last season, Red Sox GM Theo Epstein knew that his team needed a bigger infusion of power and speed.
