Let’s just proclaim Vince Young a great quarterback already. What more does this man have to do!
Six straight wins for Tennessee, including a 10-0 run in the final quarter to edge Buffalo on the road. If the Titans make the playoffs, this will truly be one for the ages in the NFL. Give Jeff Fisher all the credit for having the faith to play Young and let the former University of Texas star work his magic.
Speaking of magic, how about those Saints? A perfect example of a team coming together compared to a team like the Giants, which were shredding by the week. Coughlin is as good as gone.
Indianapolis has to be wondering what is going on after losing again to the Houston Texans. Dungy can’t turn this team on and off like a faucet. The best team in the AFC could be the Baltimore Ravens, which went into Pittsburgh and bullied the Steelers for the second time this season. The trade for Steve McNair just may produce a second Super Bowl title for HC Billick.
And, the Bears defense is suddenly porous. Allowing 21 points to Detroit is reason for concerned about. Good thing Rex Grossman has come alive with the offense.
Wouldn’t it be great if it was New Orleans and Tennessee so we can see another Young vs Reggie Bush matchup just like last year’s national championship game.
Maybe the Bucs have found something in Tim Rattay. Either that or the Browns stink. Probably a bit of both.
Here’s hoping to wind up the regular season above .500. Early deadlines prevented updating the records. Enjoy the holidays and we’ll take care of it next week.
Giants at Skins: Easy money here. Jason Campbell’s coming out party at QB. Coughlin’s swan song for Big Blue. Same for Tiki and maybe Strahan. REDSKINS.
Steelers at Bengals: Pittsburgh is now out of the playoff picture, so expect Cincy to pour it on at home. BENGALS.
Browns at Texans: Cleveland has quit on the season. Houston hasn’t, as witnessed by its great win over Indianapolis. TEXANS.
Dolphins at Colts: We think Miami will play hard in the final game, especially with Indy figuring to rest many of its starters. Dungy’s boys look rocky entering playoffs. DOLPHINS.
Seahawks at Bucs: Suddenly Tampa Bay is putting points on the board. Sure could be a trouble spot for Seattle. This is a very long road trip for the Seahawks. BUCS.
Patriots at Titans: I am not going against Vince Young now, especially after four straight cashes. TITANS.
