All Talk on the NFL October 15, 2007

With one more game to go on Monday between the New York Giants and Atlanta Falcons, it’s been a pretty exciting and shocking week in the NFL. 

  • The battle between the unbeaten New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys wasn’t all that surprising.  Tom Brady played great, throwing 5 touchdowns and passing for 388 yards.  Brady got everyone involved as Moss, Stallworth, and Welker all had touchdowns. How can the Patriots be stopped?!

  • Adrian Peterson pretty much played a real football game as if it were a game of Madden.  Against the Chicago Bears, Peterson had 224 yards on just 20 carries, and also scored 3 touchdowns.  His longest run was 73 yards.  Peterson by himself, has out rushed every team he’s played this season.  Peterson definitely shut up the critics with his performance on Sunday.  Thanks for the Fantasy Points Adrian.

  • Brett Favre and the Packers are 5-1.  Although Favre set the all time interception record, the Packers still got the win against the Washington Redskins.  Speaking of the Redskins, I don’t know what’s going on with one of my favorite players Clinton Portis.  He just hasn’t been able to get going this season.

  • It looks like Jaguar head coach Jack Del Rio’s decision to make David Garrard the starting QB is paying off.  The Jags have won four straight with their win over the Houston Texans.

  • An often frustrated Ladanian Tomlinson scored 4 touchdowns against the Oakland Raiders.  LT had 198 yards and some nice runs, as the Chargers defeated the Raiders 14-28. Glad the running game is fixed, now if only we can get the QB problem fixed.

  • Kansas City Chiefs’ Tight End, Tony Gonzalez broke the all time touchdown record for Tight Ends Sunday.  Gonzalez recorded his 63rd touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals, breaking Shannon Sharpe’s record of 62.  Gonzalez has been so consistent throughout his career.  He’s definitely one of the guys I would like to see win a Superbowl ring.

  • The Saints have finally won a game, defeating the Seattle Seahawks 28-17. Drew  Brees played well for the first time this season, throwing for 246 yards and 2 touchdowns.  Most importantly, he didn’t throw any picks.  Reggie Bush had a good game rushing, carrying the ball 19 times for 97 yards. Keep it up Saints, maybe my prayers helped after all.

  • Vinny Tesaverde is back! Testaverde stepped in for the injured David Carr and led the Carolina Panthers to victory over the Arizona Cardinals 25-10. At the age of 102 (he’s really 43), Testaverde is showing the league that he still has some skills.

I love how no one is really talking about the Jags right now. It’s great that we are under the radar. With Indy next week we will get national attention but I hope the media is soft on the Jags for a while. The sucky part though about living in Jacksonville is that the games have been blacked out. The Atlanta game was blacked out and this past game was blacked out. Maybe I should go to a game.

I think the long for Adrian Peterson was 73 yards.

kidal25, your right on the Jags. They are not getting much for credit. The running game was awesome yesterday. I picked up their D in a lot of fantasy leagues very late this year…loving it!

Thanks for the correction Tino. Will fix it ASAP. I was thinking about picking up the Jags early in the season. I had a feeling that they would play great this year, but just I just felt like it was a gamble. I regret it now, but Peterson made up for it.

Lets go Pats. People hated when we were said to have been cheating. People hate when we run the score up but thats how it is when a team has the killer instinc; its not a switch they can turn on and off its there life-style. The pats should be happy with themselves because any other team may have fell flat on their faces but the Perservering Pats continue on with no problems (no losses so far).

ON the game Brady has an all-pro cast of recievers , but what about the Offinsive line probably the best in the business. Brady may be the best QB in the game right now but that line could be the best in NFL history.

As much as I dislike the Pats, I honestly don’t see the how they can lose a game this season. Watch out for those Colts though.

6. Billy Martin - October 16, 2007

If losing helps with the TV ratings—then ESPN will have the Pats go down a peg–just as Tom Brady did with his out-of-wedlock child.

No sweat.

Like emptying a sharps bucket of spent syringes.

Nike says: LIVE WRONG! Swoosh.

I will give the Patriots this.. They play as a well oiled machine.. They came in here and Brady picked apart the Cowboys defense like I figured he would.. I can not however say that they will go undefeated.. Not because they are a bad team, but because in this day and age.. to many things can go wrong.. Will they make the Superbowl this year.. Absolutely! Even if the mroad goes thru Indy.. I am by no means a Patriot fan.. but I can not see another team stopping them from their 4th title.. As far as them cheating.. Hey even if you know what play the defense is going to call.. you still have to make the play.. And I seriously doubt the Patriots are the only team in this league that has taped other teams sidelines.. That point was only proven when the league swept this under the rug very quickly! Roger Goodell didnt want to know the truth.. Another reason I say the Patriots will make it to the superbowl.. How many times have we seen Tom Brady win with less?? The addition of Stallworth, and Moss in the offseason = Championship!
