I know winning ruins my “Suck for Luck” campaign and the 49ers dreadfully boring 13-8 win over the Bengals was tough to watch, but so far I like what I see out of Jim Harbaugh….
Sure, he doesn’t trust Alex Smith to throw downfield and runs a conservative offense; but with his lack of skill position players he doesn’t have much choice….
What I like most is his team plays hard for 60 minutes, has excellent special teams and a Super Bowl caliber defense….
And now that “Suck-for-Luck” is down the drain, why not go for an NFC West championship? Granted, the 49ers aren’t good enough to compete in any other division, but they have the good fortune of playing in the worst division in NFL history; where 7-9 was good enough to win last season….
I’m telling you, if they had a really good QB they could go to the Super Bowl….
San Francisco should be 3-0 after outplaying the Cowboys last week before losing in overtime and 8-8 is realistic….
During the pre-season, the Silver & Crap looked awful and I was thinking Alzheimer Al’s boys might be capable of 0-16….
To my surpise, the Commitment to Excrement looks like a playoff team after yesterday’s 34-24 win over the Jets….
Their secondary is terrible and I still don’t believe in Jason Campbell, but they’re dominant up front, on both sides of the ball, and should be 3-0….
The Chiefs are awful, the Broncos aren’t any good and the Chargers are coached by Norv Turner, so why not Drool Bucket Al’s team?….
They went undefeated in the AFC West last season and look like the best team….
It wasn’t another 400+ yard game, but I was more impressed by Cam Newton yesterday than in his first two games. Sure, he threw for all kinds of yards, but also made bad decisions in the 4th quarter which cost Carolina victories….
On Sunday, however, with his team trailing the Jags 10-8, Newton calmly led his team down the field and threw a TD pass, followed by another pass for a two-point conversion….
He didn’t have big numbers, but he got the number that counted; the Panthers first win….
I guess they should start printing Super Bowl tickets in Buffalo, because the Bills are 3-0 after picking off Tom Brady four times and defeating the Patriots, 34-31….
It’s also time to list Ryan Fitzpatrick among the NFL’s elite QB’s after 369 yards and two TD’s….
Speaking of blocking off the streets for a championship parade, how about the Lions? After trailing 20-0 at halftime, they roared back to beat the Vikings 26-23 in overtime; the third time this season Minnesota has blown a substantial lead and lost the game….
I didn’t think the Vikings would be in the Andrew Luck sweepstakes, but at 0-3 they’re right in it….
What the hell are Pete Carroll and the Seahawks doing? At 0-2, with Tavaris Jackson at QB and a porous offensive line, there’s no chance they’re going to be any good. So why score a TD in the second half and then intercept a late pass from Kevin Kolb with a minute left?….
Losing is what the fans want and what ownership should want; because with Luck they could turn the franchise around overnight. And Carroll could beat Harbaugh over the head with Luck for the next decade….
Instead, Seattle did something really stupid; win the game….
If I were Paul Allen, Carroll would be in my office first thing this morning, with some ‘splainin to do….
After Denver’s 17-14 loss to the Titans, with Kyle Orton throwing for only 173 yards and two INT’s, it’s time to give Tim Tebow a chance to lead this team….
He played extremely well in his final three games last season and in my opinion gives the Broncos their best chance to win….
I know his mechanics aren’t textbook and he’s not your typical NFL drop back QB, but all the guy does is win and make plays….
Tebow is a winner, but John Elway and John Fox are too stubborn to make a change; after all, that would be admitting they made a mistake….
I think Michael Vick has a good case when he complains about no flags being thrown when he takes hits around the head….
Watching the Eagles loss to the Giants, I counted three times he was hit in the head right in front of a zebra, with no call….
Maybe it’s because he’s on the run and scrambling, or maybe the officials aren’t going to give him a break, but something is very suspicious….
But I have to give Vick a Man Card Violation for coming out of the game with a broken right hand; followed by his back-up throwing a pick which sealed the game for the Giants….
Michael broke his right hand, which shouldn’t make any difference because Vick is left-handed. Shoot the damn thing up, put on a light cast and get your ass back on the field….
There’s nothing wrong with his throwing hand; thus no reason he can’t play….TMd4 itijo
