Transitive Property I think we all know that the transitive property doesn't hold in football but it's rare that key teams in back to back weeks show it so aptly. The Ravens beat the Jets who beat the Patriots who beat Cinci who beat the Ravens. Huh? So what does it all mean? Unknown but probably the AFC favorite won't emerge until late into the season.
Panic Time? Only 10% of the NFL teams that start 0-2 make the playoffs. So of course the overhyped, overcovered Cowboys are getting the red alert treatment. My biases aside their offensive coordinator has called horrible games and the o-line has been less than spectacular. Without a solid line and poor play calling all the skill position talent in the world can't bring you playoff wins.
Almost Convinced.... Go to the Dolphins and Bears...both have strong starts but both have huge inter-divisional matchups (Dolphins v. Jets, Bears v. Packers) that I will good markers as to how improved and how for real the teams are.
Prayer Time...Could this really be the year Favre falls apart and nobody will feel his skills are worth his ego issues? Could it be? Much like his various "retirements" I'll hope but will have to wait before I believe it is real....
Locker Hype Mercifully Euthanized - It's been awhile since I've done some good old fashioned back seat driving...questioning stupid decisions. Whatever scouts (I'm looking at you Todd McShay) had Jake Locker as the #1 overall pick can now officially stop it and report to the pillories. At home against Nebraska Locker was 4-20 for 70 yards and 2 Ints (that's a microscopic 45.9 QB rating). Locker sucks. He sucks in college. He will suck in the Pros. Deal with it.
Opening At Georgia - In the unforgivable SEC, Mark Richt has made the mistake of succeeding early in his career and regressing. The loss to South Carolina makes UGA 0-2 for the first time with several tough games remaining. Last year Richt was forced to hire his assistants, this year signs are pointing to Richt getting the axe.
Get Well Soon - Sparty's Coach D'Antonio made a ballicious call for a fake FG to defeat Notre Dame. Soon thereafter D'Antonio suffered a heart attack. He seems to be resting comfortably but best wishes on a speedy recovery......
