NFL Week 2 Roundup
The big story of course is the demise of Peyton Manning. Most of us, incluidng me were hipnotized by his performance last week against Pittsburgh, bringing us flashes of his well known past. This week he reminded us why the Colts decided to get rid of him. Manning might be done, its too soon to tell, but he might also give some good games this year. The coin is still up in the air and I expect him to be inconsistent throughout the season. One game he’ll give us a great start, the next he’ll be throwing multiple interceptions in the first quarter. This is good news for the AFC West, specially the San Diego Chargers who are looking good as the season starts.
The New Orleans Saints are now 0-2 for the first time in a long long period. Both games were close on the score cards but not that close on the playing field. Drew Brees along with Manning and Tom Brady lost games this week, what does that tell you about the best quarterbacks of the last decade? Maybe we are approaching a new generation. New England with the loss is one of the many 1-1 teams as of this week, a record in the NFL. This tells you a lot about the way parity is working these days, or is it the replacement refs? They seem to be blowing it more often than not as of week 2.
Eli Manning threw for 510 yards. Is he better than his older brother? He has the rings to prove it. I’m in the Eli club, its about winning titles not mvp awards. Philadelphia is looking good, but the 49ers are looking even better as they seem to be the complete package after that Sunday night perfofrmance against the Lions. Houston is also looking as a strong contender for the AFC side of the ball, don’t be surprised to see them come February against San Francisco. NY Jets a looking as the mess I predicted them to be and Oakland is fighting vs Kansas City for the worst team title.
Dallas is also one of those teams I wouldn’t bet on a regular basis as they look as inconsistent as ever. I don’t like Tony Romo as a QB, I also don’t like Jay Cuttler. These guys are overrated and only work one game every two weeks.
