After the Titans though, it’s anyone’s guess. San Diego and Jacksonville both sucked out yesterday and came away with wins. Denver wandered into their own house of horrors. I suppose if Baltimore beats the Steelers tonight, we can assume they are good. I’m still not sold on Buffalo, though I freely admit that I can’t articulate why off the top of my head.
It’s from last week, but I avoided the media last week. Whitlock gently wonders about Dungy’s coaching schedule. It’s a fair question, but I think that there are enough other things that have clearly gone wrong. Unless the rest of the NFL is practicing on Friday nights, I doubt this is the culprit.
This Star piece on Irsay’s daughter was great yesterday.
Peter King claims he isn’t shocked over the state of the NFL. His nonsensical intro (in which he claims that the topsy turvy-ness of this NFL season is to be expected) actually helps me articulate why I don’t trust the Buffalos of the world. Because it’s a long season, and a chunk of the league hasn’t even played 4 games yet, it’s just silly to talk about the NFL like there has been some sea change. I can buy Tennessee because we’ve seen this coming from them for some time. All it took was removing VY from the equation. As for other pretenders like Buffalo, it takes a lot more than 4 games to convince me that they’ve arrived. King would be better served telling people not to overreact to four (three!) games worth of data and just calm down a little. Instead he acts like the way the standings look now is the way they’ll finish up.
