The media favorite Seattle Seahawks LOSE to an underachieving St Louis Rams;
A rookie QB who was predicted to need the most polishing of all the rookie QBs wins his third straight game (making SEVERAL key third-and-long conversions);
David Carr and the Texans, still viewed as the red-headed-step-child expansion club almost knocks over the hot Vikings; And the 'terrible' Charges pull off another win, running all over the 'strong' Jag defense;
And the media is still talking about the Pats win streak (they played the DOLPHINS... who wasn't expecting this??)... and they did it without even passing for 100 yards! What else is in the news? How TO is helping the Eagles win? THE EAGLES ARE ON A F*CKING BYE WEEK! What else? Deion Sanders returns to the lineup?
Sweet f*cking lord people... the media is felatiateing the wrong people. The Pats aren't going to lose until these next four weeks when they play 'real' teams (Seahawks, Steelers, Jets, and Rams). TO is great for Philly... not cause he's doing amazing things on the field, its cause he's forcing defense to pay attention to him, giving McNabb easy pickins for the rest of the recievers! AND DEION SANDERS HASN'T DONE SHIT YET THIS YEAR!
So, since no one ELSE is talking about it:
Seattle, the favorite preseason pick to win the NFC has dropped their first loss. The #1 defense fell apart as the Rams make a 4th quarter comeback to tie it, and a bomb to win it in OT. That'll make things interesting for their meetup next week against the Pats. They know they are mortal, so now its time to show the Pats they are too.
Ben Roethlisburger has an NFL streak to his name. Every game he has started he has won (Maddox started the Baltimore game, Roethlisburger came in after Maddox was injured). He has been INCREDIBLE on third down conversions. Tommy Maddox will not start for the Steelers again unless Big Ben is injured.
The other two I didn't see the games for, but the Texans are looking like a threat. My fantasy football choice to have David Carr and Andre Johnson ended up a fantastic decision.
