This week…wow!

The Chiefs pulled it out in OT against the Steelers. Chris Chambers still has some life left in him. Jamaal Charles was BALLIN today. A kickoff return and a receiving TD. Stank-0 sees you stuntin boy. These situations will pay off next season. Big Ben was knocked out of the game and Charlie Batch filled in well but the Chiefs D stood tall and got the ball back. Cassel’s line: 15/30, 248 yds, and a TD. Very workman-like outing.

Next up the Giants needed OT to pull it out against the Falcons as well. Didn’t really watch that game, but the Falcons showed some heart in that game.

The Lions also won on a weird ending against the free falling Browns. There was a pass interference call in the endzone that set up the Lions on the 1 yard line. They score to tie the game and then win it on the extra point. The Lions have the talent to play.  Stafford finally started throwing the ball with enough air on it cause he tossed a bomb to Calvin Johnson aka Megatron.  That boy is a burner.

The Colts won in a very low scoring affair against the Ravens. The Ravens needed TDs but only got FGs. The Colts continue to do the little things to win games. They had some new players to step in like TE Santi. Might want to deal for him in your respective fantasy leagues. Dallas Clark had the catch of the week and one-handed TD in the back of the endzone on the Colts first possession.

The Redskins hung with the Cowboys for a long time on the strength of their defense, but the Cowboys prevailed 7-6. The offense needs to hold up their end of the team. The Skins held the explosive Cowboys to 7 points?! The defense is out there entirely too long. The TD in question: Romo got outside the pocket and started directing Crayton to run a post where he hit him on the backside of the play.

The Bills snatched defeast from the jaws of victory against the Jaguars. TO had 9 reception for 197 yards and a TD.

The Saints remained undefeated as well. After spoting the Bucs 7, they went on the score 38 unanswered point to win the game. Brees had 2 TDs.

The Vikings had a glorified bye week playing the Seahawks and winning 35-7. Favre had 3 TD passes on 22 of 25 passing in the 1st half! FIRST HALF!  One was to Harvin. 

Right now the Jets are down to the Patriots 7-0 on an interception.

Sunday Night is the Eagles and the Bears, should be an interesting game.

If you did not watch the Patriots @ Colts on NBC, go Plaxico yourself.  You missed out! 

Stank-0 is gonna throw this out there right now.  Al jinxed the Patriots when he said that most QBs who throw for 300+ yards lose the game but Brady is the exception.  What happened?  The Comeback Colts stormed back into the game. 

Also, Stank-0 understands putting the game on ice by going for it on 4th down.  Stank-0 really does, but we are talkin about Peyton Manning gettin the ball back with a short field.  Yeah when you think about it, that’s not a hard decision to make.  PUNT!

Brady lives the life we all want to live, but Manning is the Kobe Bryant of football. He studies game film religiously, keeps copious notes, reviews notes from past games, and keeps said notes in an effing safe.  Stank-0 and his roommate wondered about all the commercials and Stank-0’s roommate posited that he prolly shoots all of them during the off-season because during the season it’s all about football. 

Stank-0 has been saying that Andre Johnson is the best receiver in the football, but will have to amend that statement.  Andre, Moss, and Fitz are the best receivers in football.  Moss put on a clinic.  Enough said. 

The 4th down call is a lil dubious.  How do you not get forward progress on the catch?  The only way is if they contend he did not have possession, which is true.  He bobbled that jawn for a minute.  Also that pass interference call felt a lil LeBron James-ish.   

NBC kept putting up the graphic “Rivalry of the Decade” after every lead-in.  It didn’t look like it in the beginning, but man that turned into a game. 

How much do the Colts miss Bob Sanders? 

Jim Caldwell is definitely part of the Dungy coaching tree. Stank-0 doesn’t think the cameras showed Caldwell saying three words all night.  He has learned well from Obi Wan Dungy.

P.S. on a non-NFL-related football note, Stank-0’s flag football team made the playoffs!!  At one point, we were 4 games below .500 and sitting two spots out of playoff contention, but came storming back and got in on the last week of the season.   

That was all Stank-0 could say after the end of the Colts-Jags game last night. Author’s note: Stank-0 did NOT watch the entire game.

The Jags were up 10 points goin into half, the most clutch kicker in NFL history missed a gimme, and there was blown coverage to allow the Jags to get close enough to hit a field goal goin into the break. Things could not look more disenheartening for the Colts.

Yet at the end of the game, the Jags are driving, in the red zone with a chance to tie. My friend, M0yo, was talkin about he would go for 2 after the TD. Stank-0 was thinkin, let’s get the 6 then we can fret the details. The Jags line up, not much time left on the clock, spread formation empty backfield, David Garrad has the rock in his hands and Dwight Freeney comes blindside to sack him. GAME! The Jags were out of time outs. Honestly, that’s it?

The Jags pulled defeat from the jaws of victory. Why do people fall in love with the Jacksonville Jaguars season after season as a pick to go deep in the playoffs? Why is that? All they do is disappoint.

Not the same magic

Sorry NFL but this edition of Colts vs Pats does NOT have the same pizzazz.  Tom is gone and Peyton isn’t playin like the Peyton we are used to.  Randy Moss is basically runnin decoy routes this game, and John and Al are calling Wes Welker the next big thing. 

It just doesn’t have that it.  There’s no appeal, no flash, no “sexiness” about this game.  The NFL betta pray (and very hard) that both teams bounce back next season. 

It’s only 12-7 New England with 7:06 left in the 3rd.  Iz u surrious?  That’s a score for the beginning of the 1st quarter of the normal rivalry. 

Another sign:  the Pats had a clock eating drive.  That ain’t the Patriots Stank-0 is used to.  Not by a long shot.
