Despite BYEs, This Weekend Should Be Dope

So, 6 teams are taking the week off. Mother fuckers. We’re only 3 weeks deep! You lazy bastards…if I just started a job and tried to take a week off after 3 weeks, I’d be laughed at, kicked in the nuts, and shoved back into the little hole they call a cubicle. It’s been this way for many years, but I still want to blame that goodie-two-shoes (what does that really mean?) sheriff of a commissioner, Roger Goodell. Luckily, he saved himself the pain of having to read my hate mail by giving us 7 Division Games. It, too, may have been that way for many years, but this is the first time it has happened since the blog started, so let’s get excited.

DIVISION GAMES

ATL @ CAR: Atlanta sure looks good at home this season. Too bad this one’s in Carolina. I thought the Panthers would explode last week with Steve Smith back on the field, but they got out-worked by an average Vikings club who started a 3rd rate QB. That worries me. Still, I think Jonathan Stewart will give them great field position on KRs and he’ll probably break one or two for big gains on offense. If the Carolina D can keep Turner from doing the same, Carolina fans should go home happy.

CLE @ CIN: Remember what happened the first time they met last season? Despite over 400 passing yards for Carson Palmer, and 200 receiving yards for #85, Cleveland won a great game, 51-45. Could it happen again this year? Unfortunately, a 3-2 game looks more likey.

HOU @ JAX: We know one thing: Andre Johnson will drop some balls in this game. That seems to be his M.O. these days…”how many times can I be targeted in a game?”, not “how many balls can I catch?”. Jacksonville is hard to root for…they’re too inconsistent. If there’s going to be an upset, maybe Houston does it this week.

DEN @ KC: Ever seen pictures of Hiroshima after they dropped Little Boy? No? Type “Arrowhead Stadium” into Google Maps on Monday.

SD @ OAK: Lane Kiffin = desperate. Norv Turner = dumbass. Philip Rivers = throws like a girl. Tomlinson = (talented) pea-brained crybaby (seriously, listen to him sometime). Russell = even worse than Tomlinson. Good thing McFadden and Gates are out there…Sproles tickles my fancy too…can guys use that phrase?

WAS @ DAL: Oh baby. I love me some Redskins/Dallas games. They met in week 11 last season in Dallas and T.O. decided to blow up for 173 yards and 4, count em, 4 TDs. Oh baby. My fantasy senses are tingling.

BAL @ PIT: Hmmm…from what I’m reading, expectations for this one are pretty low. I, however, think this will be a PIT blowout. 35-13. But I also thought Cinci would win in week 1…so, maybe I’m still in Billick-mode.
