John’s Quick Hits (working title until I can come up with something more creative for this type of article):
-Take away all our special teams (field goals and extra points included) and we still beat Seattle 12-10. That’s all offense.
-Our defense matches up really nicely with Jacksonville’s offense. With the middle of their O-Line banged up they will most likely throw quick slant passes and run to the outside. We should see what our DB’s are made of.
-Maybe it was just me, but it was nice to see the Colts get punished for taking the early months of the season for granted. Sure Manning didn’t play in the pre-season, but your defense made Kyle Orton look like John Elway.
-It pains me to say this, but I have to upgrade Tony Romo from mediocre to good. Congratulations buddy. Your promotion is contingent however, on Cleveland’s performance against Pittsburgh, if Big Ben has as easy of a time with “Believeland’s” defense then you might get demoted again.
-Tony Kornheiser is a terrible announcer. He simply parrots back uninformed NFL talking points from pre-training camp. His comments about the Packers, Farve and Rodgers Monday night simply highlight the fact he has never actually played the sport. Finding it hard to beleive that he is qualified for such a job I looked up his Wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Kornheiser) where it said (I swear I copy and pasted this incase it has been changed by the time you verify it): “Kornheiser has hosted The Tony Kornheiser Show on radio in various forms since 1992; … and served as an analyst for ESPN’s Monday Night Football since 2006, where he has disgraced himself, ESPN, the NFL, and the human race in general.” Thank God for Jaws.
-Can somebody please tell me why the Oakland Raiders get so many nationally televised games every year? The Broncos are a decent team, but I’d be surprised to see them in the superbowl this year. Joakland should do the world a favor and drop their football team completely after that embarrassment.
UPDATE: The Kornheiser Wikipedia page has been changed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Kornheiser I swear on my mother’s grave I didn’t make that up though
