NFL Week 8 open thread

posted at 11:56 am on October 28, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Last week, the Steelers defense finally played a shut-down game, and against a pretty good Cincinnati Bengals team on the road, too.  Pittsburgh dominated on all aspects of the game, thanks in part to the emergence of Jonathan Dwyer playing in place of injured RB Rashard Mendenhall.  He’ll be back against the Washington Redskins at Heinz Field, where the Steelers have yet to lose.  Don’t expect them to lose today, either.  They’ll beat RGIII and the Redskins in a physical effort, 20-10.

I had a pretty good Week 7, going 5-1 for the second week in a row, and only losing on my upset pick of Detroit over Chicago.  I’m now 27-15 for the season.  Can I pull a hat trick?

  • Giants at Cowboys – New York got off to a rocky start, but they’re back to playing championship-level football again.  The Cowboys have been inconsistent at best.  I’d expect Eli Manning to lead the G-men past the ‘Boys, 27-20.
  • Saints at Broncos – New Orleans is one of the real conundrums of this season.  They’re just as talented as last year, but they can’t quite make the finish line.  They’ve won their last two games, but Peyton Manning is 6-0 in his last six games after bye weeks, and he’s just getting tuned up.  The Broncos should win at home, 35-31, but it may come down to the last drive.
  • Falcons at Eagles – Atlanta puts the last unbeaten record on the line in Philadelphia, and the line has the Eagles by three.  They’ve played sloppy, turnover-filled football so far this season, led by a snake-bit Michael Vick.  I can’t see them getting their act together in time to stop Atlanta, who should win in a shootout, 38-28.
  • 49ers at Cardinals — Which of these teams is more for real?  I’m betting (in a Bidenesque “literally” sense, not literally literally) that it’s San Francisco.  They need to exert some dominance in their division, which has become the most improved in the NFL, and I’d call it 27-24 for the 49ers, possibly in OT.
  • Patriots at Rams — I could ask the same question here.  St. Louis has improved its play over the last couple of years, especially at home, where they have all three of their wins this season.  New England has looked sloppy and perhaps a bit old this year, and they’re 2-2 on the road.  The line has the Pats up by seven, but I’ll pick this as my upset of the week.  Rams over Pats, 24-20.

I got everything right last week, with the exception of the Jags-Raiders game (curse you, Raiders-nation!).

I’ll take Saints over Broncos (I think a close game, but goes the other way) and (my beloved) Pats over the Rams. The Patriots have exhibited incredible variance in their play this season. Half of the time they look like a Super Bowl caliber team, and the other half they look like the 0-16 Lions of a few seasons back. And I’ll scream if they don’t fire / run-over repeatedly, McCourty. That guy keeps screwing up in crucial situations.

Past that, you’re on the money, Ed.

Amazon Nanny Staters over the Tomy Romo cowgirls…..shocker/not.

New Orrlins Pagans versus the long neck Orange ponies….go with the long neckid old quarterback to school the cheater boys from the Bayou.

The bird game. way overrated georgia birds versus the 8-1 Obama voting birds from Philly. Will never ever pick Philly again.

Golden state LGBT Golddiggers against somebody. Gotta go gay. 9ers for the win.

Pats versus the mountain goats from Los Angeles (oh sorry St. Louis right?). Romneys’ Patriots ride the Rams.

Saints didn’t cheat, Pappy. They had no higher incidence of illegal hits than the average NFL team during the period covered by the “bounty” play.

Paying someone extra to hit really hard is not cheating.

Winning 7 Tours-des-France by doping… THAT’S cheating.

So go sit on it.

Saints play their first game under the new interim head coach – Joe Vitt.

What a ridiculous, Rube-Goldberg punishment: take all kind of random, arbitrary and capricious actions to destabilize the whole franchise for a whole season. So now the interim interim head coach gives way and so more adjustments must ne made, just as the Saints finally put 2 wins together.

Roger Goodell is just plain weird.

If he thinks he’s going to come to New Orleans for the Super Bowl and be greeted with Southern hospitality, he’s got another think coming.

Pissed-off Cajuns are not the safest people to trust with cooking your food.

He’d better fly in some Swanson TV dinners and stay in his hotel room with his own oxygen supply if he expects to make it out of New Orleans alive.

You are impressive. They should have had you on the defense team that represented Murder Incorporated or helping Buddy Ryan in Philadelphia. For some reason. there is lots of trouble for paying to get other people hurt.

Sure, bonus bucks for knocking Peyton Manning around is fair. Someone should have told the other teams to take the same tactic toward the NO skill players.

I am sure the NO players and fans would have been fine with it.

Steelers

I was laughed at for predicting a nascent Steeler running game last
week.

The Washington sports media is sold on a Redskins win.

They also thought that O would save the country.

The guys with the ugly old unis will romp today.

J.E. Dyer on October 28, 2012 at 1:13 PM

OK, true football story here for your entertainment.

My grandpa grew up in the sticks of Louisiana.

He was 6’2 as a high-school senior and strapping, so the coach approached him to play this game called “football.” He said sure, why not. He’d heard of it but didn’t know anything about it. This was about 1925.

So they took him out on the field lined him up, told him that when they handed him the ball, to run thataway.

QB handed him the ball and he took off.

By the time the play ended all you could see was fists and my grandpa had already clocked a couple players and knocked them on their butts and was busy punching several more in the face and beating up the whole defense.

After they broke it up, the coach asked “what the hell?”

He said, “all I know is that I did what you said, and I was running and all those guys jumped on top of me!”

So he didn’t play football.

True story.

Vatican Watcher on October 28, 2012 at 2:13 PM

Falcons at Eagles – Atlanta puts the last unbeaten record on the line in Philadelphia, and the line has the Eagles by three. They’ve played sloppy, turnover-filled football so far this season, led by a snake-bit Michael Vick. I can’t see them getting their act together in time to stop Atlanta, who should win in a shootout, 38-28.

Good you ignored Andy Reid’s unbeaten streak after a bye week, because he will sustain his first loss today.

Yikes

cane_loader on October 28, 2012 at 3:10 PM

So I just watched the replay of Miami blocking the Jets’ punt and returning it for a TD. The announcers diagrammed it and blamed Tebow for not picking up the rusher and allowing the TD.

This really brings the lunacy into focus.

Jets sign a QB with a lifetime winning record in the NFL, the current QB can’t win his way out of a paper bag and here Tebow is instead as the punt protector…. a job he’s not well-trained for?

Oy. Bad stuff.

Sanchez with a 68.1 QB rating….. 26 for 49.

Tebow one carry in the entire game… for 2 yards.

Tebow blamed for allowing the blocked punt.

Watch Sanchez skate again and be given another start.

What a disgrace.

It’s Tebow time.

And I don’t care if it Rex Grossman vs. whoever the other Bears QB was when they had the rotating QB situation. SWanchez isn;t getting it done, and it’s time to bench him and give the backup a try, whoEVER the backup is.

Just my opinion, worth what you paid for it.

cane_loader on October 28, 2012 at 4:09 PM

Sanchez now 28 of 54.

You simply cannot allow your QB to throw 50 passes when he’s a 50 percenter. Drew Brees can get away with that sometimes, but even Brees usually loses if he’s forced to throw 50 times.

Just to give Sanchez something of a break, 21 rushing attempts vs 54 passing for NYJ won’t get it done. Especially with Sanchez.

Rams over Pats, 24-20.

STL 7 NE 45

I’d call it 27-24 for the 49ers, possibly in OT

We will see tomorrow but you are on a roll Ed (5-0)!! I hope you can predict the election results as well as you do football.

You mean 4-1. He got the NE call wrong, they crushed the Rams.
