(with due homage to the BCCT...)
...Toronto liked us better than their soon-to-be resident Bills.
...Denver may have gotten the best all-around guy from the U of Arkansas' magic backfield last year: Peyton Hillis. As we saw, the FB/converted RB (out of desperation...5 Bronc 'backs have gone down to IR) can flat-out play: 68/343 @ 5.0/5 TDs Rush, 14/179/1 TD Rec in six starts for a FB having to switch over to RB? Too bad he's now gone for the year. That's going to hurt them, because there is little left beyond the guy they got selling cellphones at the Aurora Mall T Bell. Betcha if it was kosher this late in the season Sha-na-na would give us their 2009 1st Rder (gonna be around #22 or so) for Cobbs right now, even up.................I wouldn't do it. What little we have that we call Special Teams Coverage would disintegrate.
...the Bills need a new mascot. Grover from Sesame Street with horns isn't intimidating.
...Singletary still looks in decent shape. Goodman better watch it if he picks one off near their sidelines, or Coach Mike may pull a Woody Hayes. He'll channel Ditka for a moment, scream "Red-84!" and launch himself through the air, eyes wide-open in that trademark glare. He'll be shown on every highlight show in America, and get suspended for a game by Goodell for 'conduct unbecoming an NFL Head Coach'. He will also get a raise and the job full-time. Feel good all-around, because his hit is of course flagged with an ejection-personal foul, and the winning TD is awarded Goodman. Miami 17, San Fran 13.
...in 9 and 5.
...this is the best we have looked in many years. This is a team playing with purpose. Add another decent draft and a few more FAs, and this team is a SB Contender. They're a Division Championship contender NOW. That seems somehow unreal to say.
...Dick Jauron is actually the younger brother of the Crypt Keeper.
...Favre looks like he has aged ten years in the last two weeks. Thank God for Metamucil, eh, New York? The dude you bought has had a great career, no doubt. The dude you threw away to get him has found a new home, though, and is the #5 rated QB @ 93.7. Favre is #13, @ 88.2. Favre has 27 more attempts (288 to 261) than Penny, but only 1 more 1st Down (151 to 150). Penny's TD to Int ratio is better (2-1, Favre's is 4-3). Despite those fewer attempts, Penny has thrown for more yards (3062 to 2845). Penny has surrendered fewer sacks (22 to 26), and yet generates more yards per game (235.5 to 218.8).
...Brad Childress went into witness protection three years ago in an undercover operation codenamed 'Fire and Tice' and what we now see is an animatronic automaton designed by Disney.
...Ricky Williams was ridiculed in the media for saying we'd be 9-7. Who's laughing now? He may have been off about the R & R express sharing 1000 yrd seasons, but then again RB23 has 969 yards from scrimmage, 4.1 per rush, 9.1 per catch, and RW34 has 707, 4.2 per rush, 7.4 per catch. The duo have scored 14 TDs, 15 if you count passing. Who'd have thunk, oh yeah, HE did.
...the hiring of Bill Parcells to do our reorganizing was the best move we have made since 1983.
...Coach Tony is COY in my completely unbiased non-preferential opinion, regardless of how good Jeff Fisher's team is. Let's say the Titans finish 14-2 and we finish 10-6. Tennesse was a 10-6 Playoff team last year, people (they lost 17-6 to San Diego). They haven't made that big a step. If anything, they slid into a void created by Jacksonville's collapse and Indy's anemic start. They are solid, no doubt, and Fisher is a canny bird, but we have climbed out of the Abyss and onto a potential Playoff perch.
...Frisco will be an extremely tough game. They'll be skyhigh, 2-1 vs. AFC East.
...NFL Junkie's 10-6 Bus better have room for more seating, and may have to tow the 11-5 trailer.
