Cause I would've gotten my ass kicked. Picked 4 games, picked 'em all wrong. Well maybe not but I did get the Saints right, but I didn't think they'd cover so that is my bad.
The Saints rolled. They did the great trick, hit Kurt Warner and hurt 'em, if you let him get comfortable in the pocket he'll pick you apart, just ask Rob Woodson.
In the second game, the one I thought would be the best of the lot, the boring Colts rolled. The Ravens didn't get to Manning like they did Brady the week before, and then when they had opportunities they coughed it up in the Red Zone, and Flacco is not the guy who is gonna be able to make a comeback. Maybe one day Flacco will be the guy, but not today.
Speaking of the guy who will never be the guy. Tony Romo is not going to be the guy. And just when I was fooled and thought that he would be "the guy" this time. He proved that yet again he ain't and he ain't ever gonna be. Maybe Dallas should think about trading for Matt Hasselbeck, he ain't ever gonna be the guy, either. In fact Matt Hasselbeck was the basis for that quote. My buddy texted me exact that after no. 8 failed to gain 8 yards for a game winning FG attempt at Bears in 2007. It made me mad at the time, but unfortunately he has been proven right.
So there were 3 games everyone thought they were going be great and they were just plain lousy. So of course the game that everyone thought would be a one-sided blow-out in favor of San Diego. But the Jets showed up and did what they do, and it is the kind of smash-mouth football I love. Control the ball through the run and play tough defense. But saying that I don't think they have a chance at Indy next week, but this just may be the stuff that feeds 'em "us against the world" blah blah blah.
The NFC game better be the late game because really that is the game everyone wants to see. Favre v. Saints - great compelling matchup. Think the winner will have their hands full with Indy. Looks like a very attractive Super Bowl is shaping up, but then again I thought there would be a lot of good football this weekend except for the Jets-Chargers. So what do I know.
