NFL Week 7 open thread

posted at 12:14 pm on October 21, 2007 by Bryan

Here’s the schedule. The best match-up is the Monday nighter with the Colts at Jacksonville. The 6-0 Pats should crush the 0-6 Dolphins. The Cowboys have to redeem last week’s meltdown when they take on the Vikings. Kansas City vs Oakland is usually a war.

Chiefs suck!

The 6-0 Pats should crush the 0-6 Dolphins.

NFL.com called this game a bye week for the Pats. Ha!

lorien1973 on October 21, 2007 at 12:20 PM

Where’s Randi Rhodes watching the games today?

Iggles!

CHARGERS!!!!

Damn bye week

Defector01 on October 21, 2007 at 12:23 PM

I see that St. Louis is losing to Seattle this evening…

deepdiver on October 21, 2007 at 12:25 PM

Sure, a NFL open thread and my Packers aren’t playing.

lowandslow on October 21, 2007 at 12:25 PM

One of these weeks, I’ll top .500.

Just probably not this season.

How dare you!

LIONS -2 Buccaneers: Did you know Tampa was in South Florida? Neither did I. Lions 27-24

So far this season, every time the Pats have even come close to taking it easy on an opponent, you can feel the collective will to “show ‘em, every one of ‘em” lifting the team back up. It was going to be a great year for them anyway, but in the wake of the cheating scandal, they’re not willing to give anyone a serious excuse not to recognize them. It’s not enough for them to win a Super Bowl; they have to win so decisively that it fully compensates even for the notion that their past performances are somehow tainted. About the only thing standing in their way is the potential of super-human one-day performances from Manning/the Colts, or Rothlisberger/the Steelers.

It makes me think that, if the Reggie Bush investigation hits the Trojans, the rest of the NCAA may regret it, and talk of college football parity might have to be set aside for a year or two.

Last week I was pretty sure the Saints would beat the salty birds but this week against the dirty birds, I just can’t call it. I would not bet this game.

J! E! T! S! JETS! JETS! JETS!

hinduconservative on October 21, 2007 at 12:53 PM

Seahawks need to get well in a hurry. The best cure for what ails them: the 0-6 Rams. They are pathetic.

Meanwhile, the big Quack machine keeps rolling. The Ducks worked the hated Washington Huskies in Seattle last night, 55-34. Oregon should be in the top 5 in the news polls and up a few slots in the BCS.

Mallard T. Drake on October 21, 2007 at 12:53 PM

Whats in the kool aid up there? :P

Bucs 49 Lions 3 :P

Can I get a “J! E! T! S!”?

meh…fugheddaboutit…*sigh*

JetBoy on October 21, 2007 at 1:34 PM

Eh; the Packers are off.

steveegg on October 21, 2007 at 1:46 PM

The Patriots should be charged with cruelty to animals. Poor fishies.

Pablo on October 21, 2007 at 1:48 PM

No Packers, so other games just background noise on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Husband plans to suffer and watch the Rams lose yet another game. Think I’ll be watching Martinsville.

katieanne on October 21, 2007 at 1:58 PM

35-7 with 6:47 left in the 2nd quarter. Brady with 4 TD passes, 2 of them to Randy Moss.

They should just call this thing now. What a bloodbath.

Pablo on October 21, 2007 at 2:10 PM

Your New York Football Giants! 19 to 7 over the forty whiners so far.

Dash on October 21, 2007 at 2:37 PM

Brady’s having himself a pretty good afternoon.

And he’s got Giselle Bundchen waiting for him afterward.

Nice life.

JammieWearingFool on October 21, 2007 at 2:37 PM

NE did have to punt once; so Miami isn’t -totally- out of it.

lorien1973 on October 21, 2007 at 2:38 PM

Pablo on October 21, 2007 at 2:10 PM

42 – 7 now. Oh the humanity.

Dash on October 21, 2007 at 2:38 PM

The Fish are leaving the country soon; Miami rejoices.

Confused 1972 Dolphins unsure how to celebrate 0-16 season.

JammieWearingFool on October 21, 2007 at 2:40 PM

Darwin, uh, take a look at the niners. 3rd quarter.

Cowboys will win.

mimi1220 on October 21, 2007 at 2:45 PM

I have nothing clever to say…

Go Jags!

tlynch001 on October 21, 2007 at 2:46 PM

Don’t care too much. My Pack has the week off with a two game lead. WTG Pack!!!

oakpack on October 21, 2007 at 3:14 PM

Sure, a NFL open thread and my Packers aren’t playing.

lowandslow on October 21, 2007 at 12:25 PM

What in the world would you be doing here if the Pack were playing?

oakpack on October 21, 2007 at 3:17 PM

Houston is beating Houston… GO Oilers:)
OVERTIME ROCKS!!!

christophercube on October 21, 2007 at 3:21 PM

All these games to watch and the only good one is Falcons @ Saints. 16-14

oakpack on October 21, 2007 at 3:30 PM

BUSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

abinitioadinfinitum on October 21, 2007 at 3:42 PM

Uh oh…Pats – Dolphins at 49-28 now. Are the Dolphins a point better that the ‘Boys? Let’s see if our rookie 3rd string Quarterback, Matt Gutierrez, can hang another TD on them.

Pablo on October 21, 2007 at 3:54 PM

Kurt Warner’s a dude. JIC you never noticed.

CK MacLeod on October 21, 2007 at 4:02 PM

I mean to say, he’s a man. Here’s the 55 yarder… no good… valiant effort… fersure… guess the Cards remain snakebit.

CK MacLeod on October 21, 2007 at 4:03 PM

I hate that CBS carries my Pats, having to watch those 60 Minutes promos….

She’s the most famous spy in America (um, how can a real spy be famous?)….. until she was outed (ROFL)…… she has been silent (Ya, right) until now…..

Yes, it’s Valerie Plame, back on 60 Minutes tonight, yipeee!!!!

WOW! What a finish, a record breaking win for the Titans!
Good thing the Texan fans left early.

christophercube on October 21, 2007 at 4:35 PM

Since it’s not yet been said: Go Colts!

tikvah on October 21, 2007 at 5:53 PM

The Dallas D was pretty thoroughly broken last week, wasn’t it? Or have they been incompetent against the run all season, but simply untested until now? Either way, pathetic.

Blacklake on October 21, 2007 at 6:23 PM

Meh, unfortunately it’s another losing week in my weekly pick-em pool! I’m staying in the top 5 overall for the season but I can’t seem to win the weekly pots, yet my girlfriend won last week, won a week last year, is in the running again this week, and I’m still win-less!

Of course I asked her what her strategy for picking teams was, she said and I quote “whose uniform or city I like best…”

I just had to ask…oh the agony…oh the shame!

Liberty or Death on October 21, 2007 at 6:31 PM

un-fricken-believeable. The Jets are looking like they’re gonna lose a close one in Cinci.

UGH!!!

JetBoy on October 21, 2007 at 6:37 PM

Blacklake on October 21, 2007 at 6:23 PM

Last 6 ViQueens possessions:

4 punts

1 blocked FG returned for a TD

1 fumble turned into 3 points.

Yup. Pathetic.

Kowboy on October 21, 2007 at 6:58 PM

OK I’m convinced the JETS worst enemy is themselves. Holy Cripes!?!

Pennington is absolutely falling apart…

JetBoy on October 21, 2007 at 7:04 PM

Has there ever been a team that didn’t win a game all season? I would hate the Rams to be the first.

katieanne on October 21, 2007 at 7:11 PM

katieanne on October 21, 2007 at 7:11 PM

No worries. Tampa Bay did it in the 70′s.

Kowboy on October 21, 2007 at 7:12 PM

Kowboy on October 21, 2007 at 6:58 PM

Hell ya! Boys back on track. Regroup with the bye get ready for squeagles!

Drtuddle on October 21, 2007 at 7:31 PM

Yup. Pathetic.

Kowboy on October 21, 2007 at 6:58 PM

Ok, “pathetic” might be catastrphozing a bit. But still, not a great Dallas show against the run, especially considering they had to know what was coming. If not for the blocked kick, this would’ve been an absolute nail-biter. And I’m a Cowboys fan! (Not that it’s easy to be especially interested at all in this NFL season in light of the endlessly boring Patriots dominance–when the result of the Superbowl is predictable so far in advance, unless somebody puts Brady in the hospital, it’s hard to get involved.)

Blacklake on October 21, 2007 at 7:34 PM

Blacklake on October 21, 2007 at 7:34 PM

They didn’t allow a score in the 2nd half. Quite a turnaround from last week. When your D is on the field for as long as they were last week, bad things are inevitable. The O has to do their part and this week they did.

I’ve been a Boys fan for longer than I care to remember. Last week hurt, but they always seem to have one blowout against them almost every year. Let’s hope that was it for 2007.

Kowboy on October 21, 2007 at 7:42 PM

I hope the Pats go unbeaten so those aging Dolphins (Nick Buniconti and I think Larry Csonka) from the 1972 team can stop with their childish breaking out the champagne when the last unbeaten team finally loses.

Hilts on October 21, 2007 at 8:06 PM

GIANTS!!!

This year’s dark horse spotting the league 2 games to start will take it all the way with defense of years ago.

stacman on October 21, 2007 at 10:39 PM

Houston is beating Houston… GO Oilers:)
OVERTIME ROCKS!!!

christophercube on October 21, 2007 at 3:21 PM

Like I said to a friend, I got a 2 out of 3 today, unfortunatley my 1 and 3 were playing each other today!

I understand the Houston beating Houston thing! But ya gotta see that the Texans are challengers in the making. I’m sad the defense let us down in the last minute but the offense under Sage (mostly) did great!

Gooooooooooooooo TEXANS!

Texas Gal on October 22, 2007 at 12:26 AM

Ho hum. Another week, another team getting their butt kicked by the Patriots.

miketheman on October 22, 2007 at 12:41 AM

Shut the hell up! My niners lost AGAIN, I don’t feel so good, I’m going to bed.

Dadzilla on October 22, 2007 at 4:40 AM

Bears, losers of 5 straight to Eagles.
Andy Reid, 8 – 0 against NFC North at home.
Bears ball at their own 3 yard line, down 4, haven’t set foot in the end zone all day, 1:56 left, no timeouts, and the QB’s head set isn’t working.

Poor Eagles never had a chance.

Jaibones on October 22, 2007 at 4:41 AM

Wow. The Jets are one sorry team if they can’t beat my pathetic Bengals.

I feel your pain, Jets fans.

Tom Blogical on October 22, 2007 at 7:43 AM

katieanne on October 21, 2007 at 7:11 PM

No worries. Tampa Bay did it in the 70’s.

Kowboy on October 21, 2007 at 7:12 PM

Yep, but that was when the NFL still had a 14-game season. Teams have gone 1-15 since then, but no one has ever gone 0-16. If anyone’s going to do it this year it’s probably the Rams, but I just can’t believe they’re this bad.
