Week 5 NFL Gameday
 
So who you watching?

This Bengals/Patriots game... not a lot of points, but a good game none the less. Them Bengals are a very talented team. Nothing against Dalton, but he's just good enough to make it difficult to replace. Hopefully for the Bengals, he continues to get better.

Colts about to beat the Seahawks. That's going to be the tie-breaker.

Our game tonight just became a must win to keep the common opponent tie-breaker in check.

Welp looks like our reign of AFC south champs is over.

Keep wishing upon a star but the Colts are a better team this year. Our only hope is a wildcard spot.

Colts caught the niners at the perfect time. And they got Seattle at home for the 2nd of back to back 10 AM starts on the road, and we know they are not exactly world beaters on the road. We should have handled Seattle at home to keep pace but we didn't.

Yes, this game tonight is ultra important as will every single game be from here on out. Its a fight to the death, and we ain't dead yet.

Matt Schaub is still our quarterback right...

Seattle & SanFran were two of the biggest obstacles to 10 wins for both teams..... Indy came through smelling like a rose. At best we'll be 1-1.

San Diego, Denver, St Louis, Arizona, & KC are the remaining common opponents outside our division. A win by San Diego next week would help us out quite a bit, since Seattle is an NFC team.

We lost to Baltimore. Indy losing to Cinci would help us.

They lost to Miami. We win against New England would help us as well.


It's a long season, but right now those Indy wins vs San Fran & Seattle... pisses me off.

And when I posted that last weeks loss could have tie-breaker implications, someone responded (don't remember who) there was no way this could happen.

While watching the NE game, there was strong rush on Brady, but he just stepped up or to the side one or two steps, and avoided the sacks.

Watching the Cowboys Broncos game, Romo has been under unusual pressure and has either managed to side step or run away from the rush to avoid sacks.

Very discouraging knowing what to expect this evening.

The Patriots scored 6 points. They failed to score a TD in 4 qtrs. We can't be using Brady's ability to avoid a pass rush as a "Schaub can't do this" example right now.

It was good to see New England lose despite the Cincinnati defense giving them every opportunity on that last drive to come back. Dan Dierdorf essentially blamed the rain on the loss and Brady's inability to tie it in the end. Forget that Brady's offense had only 6 points going into that drive.

As a Texan it was good to see that at least one had to lose or there be a tie. But in truth, NE will take their division so Houston's wild card competition was Cincy. Oh, well. Satan lost.....good times.

You're probably right! But every play I see (including the one just a minute ago) where Romo avoids the rush and finds his man, is making me a little ill.

The Rain started when Brady stepped on the field. Stopped when he was relegated to the bench.

My wife thinks they're cursed for cutting Tim Tebow.

Except Schaub did plenty of that against Seattle. Not enough, not when it counted.

But San Diego, Tennessee, Baltimore, Schaub's been pretty active in the pocket this year & winning some of those battles. Just like Brady got sacked a few times, just like Romo got sacked on third & goal... it happens to everyonoe.

Maybe more often than not to Schaub.... maybe.

Yes. Must be nice to lose tremendously at the perfect time to land Manning and Luck like the colts have.

Schaub is our guy unfortunately, but the great ones certainly don't grow on trees either. We just have to win a different way, but we knew that. And its only going to happen if our O-line dominates, and we can get to the QB consistently and from the OLB position.

HAHA no they are not. And we will win the division still. To early to call that, we should know about to early considering the #1 seed last season.

Who are you watching?

Trying to rationalize everyone getting sacked is ridiculous. Those qb's are more adept at avoiding pressure and then making a play. Not acknowledging that is just burying your head in the sand.

:lol:

Wasn't that something? Ironically, during much of the 4th quarter I was thinking a lot on how NE would pull in out because they'd obviously done a deal with the devil at some point a few years back (see Colts also).

After the game I thought, "Hmmm, maybe the Devil's contract expired?"

Because it's true: If the Colts & Texans are tied for first in the AFC south at the end of the season it's actually a good thing the Colts will be better against the NFC since it's the last tiebreaker. Head-to-head, Win/Loss vs. teams inside the Division, W/L vs. the AFC will all come before W/L against the NFC.
