Tuesday QB for week 9

The NFC

The Saints (8-0) are really good.

The Saints started off slowly against the Panthers but came back to win 30-20. The O is outstanding but all teams have close games. The key to a great season is to win those games. The Saints continue to do that against a tough schedule.

The Vikes have a strangle hold on their division.

At 8-1 Favre and the Vikes are 3.5 games ahead of the Pack in the NFC North. They have a few tough games but are virtually injury free. With the lead they have, they will win the division.

The Cowboys and the Cards are in first for now but…

Both these teams seem to be great one week and terrible the next. The Cards have a 2.5 game lead and the Boys have a 1.5 game lead given they both hold tiebreakers against their closest rivals. But so much depends on which team shows up for key games. They both SHOULD win but may well implode.

 

The AFC

The Colts are surviving their injuries for now.

The team has survived through the weakest part of their schedule. It gets tougher from here on. Their division is down this year and that insures that the Colts will make the playoffs. After 9 weeks they have a 4.5 game lead. The Colts face the Pats this week, a trip to the Ravens and the Texans, and a home game later against the Broncos. Given the problems in their D backfield, they will lose some but win the weakened division.

The Broncos are coming back to earth at 6-2.

After a 6-0 start, the Broncos have gotten into the harder part of their schedule and now have lost 2 in a row including a 28-10 drubbing at home Monday to the Steelers. Things don’t get any easier as they will face the Giants and suddenly hot Chargers at home and visit both Indy and Philly. They must beat the Chargers or face losing their lead in the AFC West. They have been mostly injury free and that won’t last all year. The Broncos are in trouble.

Game of the year in the AFC North—The Bengals at the Steelers this week.

The two best teams in the AFCN are tied at 6-2. The Bengals have a slight lead because they beat the Steelers in Cincy 23-20. The Steelers have the advantage that one of their losses was against the NFC while both Cincy losses were to AFC teams. But the Steelers have to go to Baltimore and that is not easy. The winner of this game will win the division but both should make the playoffs.

The Browns are bad and not getting any better.

Mangenous is shooting his mouth off about how his team is very much like the 2000 Pats. WHAT???Read what I had to say about that in my article on NFLDraftDog.com.

That’s what I think. Tell me what you think.

    The Browns are a mess and firing the coach isn’t the only solution. They should build and not tear down in my opinion.

    I can’t believe that I missed your point, I will have to do some research on this.
