NFL: Week 2 – a few thoughts

Dallas is trying to lose lost to the Seattle Seahawks. As good as Dallas looked last week, they were/are that bad this week. Seattle created turnovers and then wore down the Dallas defense. Tony Romo and the offense were pretty bad. The special teams for the Cowboys were very special. They gave up a fumble which led to a field, and then they allowed a blocked punt, leading to a touchdown… all in the opening quarter. I would like to tell you that the Cowboys hung tough and fought their way back into the game, but I would be lying. The defense played well for 2 1/2 quarters and then got man-handled. It got very ugly as Seattle and Marshawn Lynch were able to do anything they wanted in the second half. He only had 122 yards on the ground, but it seemed more like 175. For the Cowboys, nobody looked good on offense. Romo graced us with another ugly interception. Just when you thought that he has learned to take care of the ball, true ugliness showed its ugly head. A simple cover sink type of defense and Romo threw late back across his body for an ugly interception. The Seahawks crushed the Dallas offense. They were simply faster and stronger. There were no holes for DeMarco Murray. Tony Romo had very little time to find receivers. Between Jason Witten and Dez Bryant, they were targeted 17 times but only came up with seven receptions. It looked like Jason Witten was lost.  Everyone thought that the Cowboys were going to walk away with a W. NOT. The NFL is a crazy place. Read on if you don’t believe me.

The NY Giants have the ability to look awful for three quarters and then put everything together in the fourth quarter. Josh Freeman is not getting it done for Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers should have won this game by at least two touchdowns. Eli Manning throws for over 500 yards. Did I mention that the NFL is a crazy place?

Cam Newton played well. Got bounce back from last week. (more…)

Today's Football – NFL

The Detroit Lions are showing the NFL on national television exactly how bad they really are. Yes, the Tennessee Titans are good, very good…but the Lions are really bad. The NFL hasn’t seen this kind of bad since Tampa Bay entered the league back in the early 70s.

The Dallas Cowboys will need to show the league that they are back. Kyle Koser is out. That’s not good. I now expect the Cowboys to win. The key is how they win. Will this be a Tony Romo turnover fest before we pull it out in the last minute? I hope not. I hope that the defense continues to improve and shuts down the Seattle offense. The Dallas offense needs to be efficient with a good running and passing game. I would love for Roy Williams and Terrell Owens to have a great game. Finally, the Cowboys’ special teams need to show up for the first time this year.

Arizona and Philadelphia play this evening. If Donovan McNabb has a good game, this will be a very good game. Both teams are good on offense…as long as their quarterbacks are playing well. Kurt Warner is having a great season. Arizona’s defense isn’t dominating. Philadelphia’s defense can be run on. So it is really up to the quarterbacks as I see it. Look for McNabb and Warner to have great games as they bounce back from last week. I think the pressure will get to Warner and make the difference in the this game.
