NFL Talk

I realize this site focuses mainly on college ball, but any real sports blog should cover both real sports (NCAA Football and the NFL). I've decided to do a rundown of all the news that interests me as an NFL viewer. Feel free to comment on any of these items or add your own items in the comments section:

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/9027806: TO on team suspension. Oh wait, I said news that interests me. Next item.

http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/recap/NFL_20051106_OAK@KC: Kansas City gambles big for a win. Other than how much Dick Vermil (http://images.google.com/images?svnum=10&hl=en&q=dick+vermeil&spell=1) resembles Robert Culp (http://images.google.com/images?q=robert+culp&hl=en), I find it hard to take interest in the Chiefs, but this was a gutsy call (and the correct one given the Chiefs running dominance). It definately deserves attention.

http://www.tampabays10.com/sports/sports_article.aspx?storyid=20844: Sure the Pathers had a big win over Tampa, but this is a far more interesting story.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/9027915: This item is buried deep in the article but congratulations to Mewelde Moore for having the good sense to leave the game when his wrist injury put him at high risk of losing the football. I'm still scratching my head on why the trainers didn't bench him sooner. It's not like Michael Bennett is a bad backup.

That's really all I have this week. The Pats play the Colts tonight so that should be interesting. My gut reaction is that Indy will win this one. That almost assures the Patriots of a victory right there.

Altanta won. That's all I really have to say about that one. It should've been a blowout but Atlanta tried to give the game away several times before Ferotte threw a perfect pass to a defender (Carpenter) to end the game.

Jacksonville won but (big surprise) Fred Taylor was inujured during the game. That's not an item I particularly care about but I know the Coastal Georgia crowd keeps up with the Jaguars from time to time.
