Go For Two: Week 5 games of the week

Welcome back Burnett

There are two games of the week that are worth highlighting.

First off, the Lions at Green Bay 1:00pm EST.

This is huge for GB. They are 1-2 right now. According to me, it was okay for us to lose to the Niners. We played a really good game, and, hey, everyone loses one every once in awhile, right?

The Bengals sting. Bad. Real bad. We went down 0-14 in the first quarter. Second and third quarters we came back and put up 30 points to their 7.¬† Then GB lose by having 13 unanswered points scored against us. Yikes. How did that happen? Outside of the obvious Ross muff, their was bad passing on the part of Rodgers. Once Clay Matthews went out, guess what? That’s when the Bengals started scoring again. I actually am not too concerned that Franklin fumbled the ball. He was our third string running back, and, actually, before that, I was pretty impressed. The call on that play was what was awful. Finally, the fact that we had to put Ross in, a wide receiver, in place of running back because we were clear out of them …. ugh.

The Packers desperately need to get someone else going besides Matthews to pass rush. You can’t lose a a game defensively because one person goes out. Not acceptable. I’m tired of letting teams put up sick points against us. Cause Even my beloved Rodgers has a bad game, and he deserves to have a break every once in awhile. Our offensive line needs to get their shit together. He can’t keep getting sacked, tipped balls, and no time to throw the ball.

I fear for Rodgers life against the Lions.

That brings me to the point of the long winded rant about why this is the game of the week, or at least, very crucial to the NFC North.

The Lions showed the world the ugly truth about the Bears — the Bears aren’t a 3-0 team. They got to 3-0 against some very, very bad teams. This week the Bears go against the Saints. It’s going to be so ugly. So very ugly for the Bears.

That leaves the fact that if the Lions can beat the Packers, they are in very good shape in the division. That means Green Bay would go (gulp) 1-3, with the Lions achieving a 4-1 record. No one really wants to play the Lions. They are a mean, violent team. The coach, Schwartz, is clearly an asshole. Really? You throw your headset to the ground! Yeah, and people wonder where the bad behavior of the players comes from.

I really don’t even want to watch this game. I very well may wear every single article of Green Bay gear I have to see if that will help us win.

The second game is Houston at San Francisco 8:30PM EST

Both teams are 2-2. Houston was supposed to be amazing this year. Eh. They don’t look so good. As for San Francisco, they were the front runner of the NFC, until they lost to Seattle and the Colts. Teams have figured out the read-option and have limited Kaepernick.

The most interesting thing is, both teams lost to Seattle.

So what will this game tell us? It will tell us whether Houston or SF merely got defeated by a great team, or if they may not be that great after all.

My money is on San Francisco. Kaepernick is an explosive quarterback, and that is where the Houston Texans will realize that Schaub didn’t just have an off game against Seattle, but has bigger issues at being quarterback.

On a side note, I always loved Matt Flynn. Poor Matt Flynn just got demoted to 3rd string at the Raiders. Ugh. Can’t we just take him back in GB?

Good luck, and as always, Go Green Bay.

My game of the week is the Seahawks vs Texans

I’m a bad man

There are a few games this week that could be considered the game of the week. No, San Francisco, no one cares that you are playing the Rams.

I’m talking about perhaps New England versus Atlanta. New England is 3-0, but without any merit. They beat some of the worst teams in the entire NFL. Now, I know Atlanta is struggling, but this game could really highlight the Patriots deficiencies.

The other game that I considered highlighting and picking as the game of the week was the Miami Dolphins against the Saints. Everyone’s pumped that they have won 3 games, and yay for them. They have been so terrible, for so long, it’s nice to see them get some wins. Their wins are also more impressive than that of the Patriots, so that’s also pretty cool. However, they are going up against the monster machine of the Saints. I don’t see this going well for the Dolphins. However, if the Dolphins DO win, a lot more people are actually going to stop just talking about the Dolphins and actually start watching them.

Therefore, the game of the week is …

The Seattle Seahawks at the Houston Texans 1:00pm EST.

The Seahawks are an impressive 3-0 against Carolina, San Francisco, and Jacksonville. The San Francisco stomping was the most impressive because not only did they contain Kaepernick when he ran, but also in the air, something that my very shaky Packers could not do. Yet, What I like most about Seattle is the defense. They have held their opponents to very few points. Defenses in the league today seem to be nonexistent. Total points scored in games are so high these days — except against the Seahawks. Sherman is so stupidly annoying, but he is so darn good at his job. I would like him a lot more if he would just shut his mouth. I think Houston should be nervous, when it was only week 3, and Pete Carroll pulled Wilson and put in the backup since they were playing so hot.

As for Houston, they are 2-1 with win sagainst San Diego and Tennessee, but a loss to Baltimore. Ehh. I’m super impressed with this Houston team. Quarterback Schaub isn’t playing so hot. However, you can’t rule Houston out because of Watt and Cushing. They are so impressive it’s ridiculous.

We are gonna find out a lot about these two teams on Sunday. I for one, can’t wait.

Go For Two: Water Cooler Topics For Week 14

Image courtesy of lokerjktWeek 14 is unique this time around in the NFL. Almost every single game has playoff implications. However, there is only one game in which the outcome¬† directly impacts each teams playoff conference and divisional standings. That game is the Vikings (6-6) versus the Bears (fifth seed 8-4). The Vikings are in a very hot race for the last NFC Wildcard spot — doing battle against the Bucs, Cowboys, and Redskins. Seattle should be very, very wary about holding onto the 6th seed, considering all these teams are banging on the door of that 6th seed spot.

With 4 games left, the NFC North is still wide open. Chicago and Green Bay have been playing flip-flop the last few weeks with who is the NFC North division winner, and who takes the 5th seed in the NFC. But, as I said, there are 4 games left. A lot can happen.

However, there is one game that will be the most watched game this week, and it’s not the Bears vs the Vikings. Each team playing has locked and loaded a playoff spot. This game very well could be the AFC Championship game. That game is …

Image courtesy of blog.chron.comThe Houston Texans (first seed 11-1) against the New England Patriots (second seed 9-3).

This game will be a preview to perhaps the AFC Championship game. The Patriots have tons of experience in the playoffs and Brady is rock solid as a quarterback. As for the Texans, with only one loss this season (to the Packers) they will be a tough team to beat. Arian Foster is amazing. This game will be amazing.

As for the rest of the games, there are plenty to keep your eye on. When I stated above, that the only game to watch with head to head implications was the Vikings versus the Bears, that was correct. However, almost every other game has playoff implications. I have highlighted only two more below, otherwise, I would have to list almost every other game.

courtesy of immfao.blogspot.comDallas vs Cincinnati — both teams are in the contest for wildcard spots in their respective conferences. Each team will be playing very, very hard. If there was one more game that I might say is a much watch, this would be it.

Titans vs Colts — the Colts are holding the 5th seed in the AFC now. However, Houston is the confirmed AFC South divisional winner. The Colts need to continue to win games to hold onto the Wildcard spot, especially since they have no chance at being their division winner. (I also picked this game because, even though I don’t mean to, I feel like I ignore the AFC a bit. So here you go)
