NFC West: Week 6 Update

NFC West Week 6

The good news this week is of course the Seahawks getting beat by Andrew "The Truth" Luck. It’s been some great reading over at the Field Gulls blog. It’s a deja-vu of our own team, meaning missed opportunities, bad tackling, Russell Wilson missing open receivers, or overthrowing them for easy touch downs. Adding to the Seahawks woes…normally sure handed receivers dropping the balls, poor execution by the whole team. Are you starting to see a theme here?

It sounded like the Ram’s except they have more seasoned talent and didn’t totally suck like those two games we dropped. If Wilson hadn’t rushed for over a hundred yards, they might have looked just as bad as we did.

The 49ers absolutely destroy the Texans with help from Matt Schaub. Matt throws a pick six on the first drive of the game. Andre Johnson gets shut down by the SF49ers DB’s… Brown and Brock. The Texans suffer from bad play calling (I hear that!) and a run game stuffed by the 49ers mean D.

Unfortunately the Arizona Cards get a win against Carolina. The dirty bird’s defense came up big by sacking Cam Newton seven (7) times! This allows the bird brains to force 3 fumbles and they go over .500 for the first time this year. With that all said and done, Arizona has San Francisco and Seattle coming up next. If they lose both games it will go a long way to bringing the Rams up a notch in the division battle and out of last place.

Statistically the Texans look like they should have no trouble winning this game. But as you know statistics tell the past, and not necessarily the future. Especially this year when the NFL seems to have a lot of outlier’s messing up what we’ve come to accept as usually good teams. NY Giants being one of those.

Texas seems to be imploding and that bodes well for the Rams this week. If we can continue to get better instead of regressing again, we should be able to win this game in spite of logic.

NFC Division Picks: Update

Before the pre-season games started I picked all the games for the NFC West. Here’s how well I’ve done so far. I’m perfect for the Seahawks, and I don’t know what that means other than I should have been betting on them. I’m 80% on Arizona and 60% for SF and Rams. Not that great… but I feel those numbers should go up a bit this week.
