Tuesday NFL Musings - Week 4 Edition

Hey all,

I didn't get to watch too much football this weekend, so this will be short and sweet.

Random observations from Week 4

  • Donovan McNabb looks awesome this year. He is playing like a man on a mission right now. Last night, he was sharp and displayed a really nice touch. Plus, he ran around a lot, avoiding sacks and he was a nightmare for the Green Bay defense all night long. With Owens gone, he's back to his old self, distributing the ball around. It's good to see him play like that.
  • Daunte Culpepper is having a lot of problems at the helm of the Dolphins offense. He looks very slow and immobile, not unlike Drew Bledsoe. Another week like that, and they'll be calling for Joey Harrington in Miami.
  • Buffalo is now 2-2 and sitting in 2nd place in the division. The defense is playing like a unit possessed. J.P. Losman looks like Ben Roethlisberger did 2 years ago. He is managing the game, getting important first downs, and he seems to understand that Willis McGahee and the defense will win games for him if he doesn't lose them by turning the ball over. That was a big win against a pretty good Vikings team.
  • The St. Louis offense finally exploded. Then again, it was against a Lions team that looks worse every week. Good thing that city has the Red Wings. What a sad bunch these Lions.
  • The Saints are looking like they are for real. They'll be fighting for a playoff spot till the last weekend of the season. They took a very good Panthers team (with Steve Smith in the lineup) down to the wire.
  • For the first time this year, the Patriots looked like a Championship caliber team. I still don't think they have what it takes to win it all this year, but it's good to see them dismantle a team like they did. The NFL is just not the sameleague if the Pats aren't kicking some butts. Laurence Maroney looks like the real deal right now. And Corey Dillon's career is over.

I did better with my picks this week, going 10-5. That brings my season record to 28-17.

I'll see you all for the pool tomorrow night.
