Pats, Schmats/First Games don’t disappoint!

tspbabe_skins2.jpgAll the talk going into this week was of course dominated by the Colts/Patriots game.  The early games however did not disappoint today.  I could not think of a better way to pass the time until the game of the year than watching some kickass football today.  Record breaking stuff, Baby!

  • Adrian Peterson is pretty good.  Damn!  It took a horsecollar tackle to stop him from a 4th TD but not before a 35 yard pickup in the 4th quarter.   Brad Childress  took him out for a play but put him back in to break an NFL record for yards in a game (unless for some reason it’s revised after I post this).  296 yards and three TD’s!  Even his fumble play was a kick ass run!
  • As a Saints fan I can honestly say that I did not picture them ever seeing .500 this season after the start they had.  Drew Brees looks like the guy we thought he was.  445 yards, 3 TD’s and takes a knee for the win to work against his rushing yards.
  • Brett Favre still amazes me.  Off his back foot he chucks it downfield to Greg Jennings for a TD that would make for the sixth lead change today against the Chiefs…and the last score really needed to get his first win EVER against the Chiefs.  He now joins Tom Brady and Peyton Manning as QB’s that have beat all 31 other teams in the league.  7-1 Brett, keep going!
  • Wasn’t Cincy supposed to be good coming into this year?  Another one of those things to justy shake your head at I guess.  Buffalo’s Marshawn Lynch ran for 153 yards and a TD.  Not bad for a rookie, huh?

Well, Colts and Pats are on…supposed to be a good game.  I’m going to go check that out.  Happy football day!

    What about the Lions, Tino? The team now has more wins in a season than any other under the Matt Millen era. The guarantee of 10 wins from Jon Kitna looks more and more likely with a strong offense. And the biggest surprise of them all — the defense. Eight forced turnovers and two touchdowns in two games; this team is really starting to gel and play well. Before, this defense would have more than likely had the secondary give up several big plays per game. I haven’t seen too many this year and it’s translating into victories.

    Crazy season, huh? Should make Thanksgiving football that much better this year. I pull for them on their “day” every year.

    I read this today on the Adrian Peterson website:

    “Peterson becomes the first Vikings rookie since Randy Moss (1993) and first Vikings rookie running back since Chuck Foreman (1973) to be named to the Pro Bowl.”

    “The Vikings have the No. 1 rushing offense in the league, and that success has helped get center Matt Birk and guard”

    What a god he is and he is only just starting, if he can avoid more injuries…dammmm.
