Pats and Steelers Head Up This Week in Football [NFL Week 8 Live Thread]

10/30/11 in NFL   |   Eric_   |   7716 respect

Let's be frank, it's not the most exciting week on paper for the NFL. Hopefully though the games can transcend that look and give us something good to watch.

1:00 PM GAMES:

Indianapolis at Tennessee:
 We start off with two teams coming off getting blown out. That's grand.

New Orleans at St. Louis: Two teams going in completely different directions. The plus for the Rams is that the Saints probably won't be as good as they were last week.

Miami at N.Y. Giants: From the aftermath of the East Coast freak storm snow comes yet another matchup that looks putrid. For Miami though, two silver linings: it's on the road and the Giants continue to play down to their competition. The Dolphins better hope for Eli to show up today though, so as not to hinder their Suck For Luck plans.

Minnesota at Carolina: The Vikings banged up and criminal secondary goes from Aaron Rodgers to Cam Newton. Have fun!

Arizona at Baltimore: The Ravens don't get to be mentioned as a good team for a while after last Monday's debacle. Get a first down in the first half and then we'll talk.

Jacksonville at Houston: The Texans looked great last week against the Titans, but now they play the masters of making it ugly, Jacksonville. That's what the Jags have to do because they aren't any good. If Houston truly is, they'll find a way to blow them out.

4:00 PM GAMES:

Washington at Toronto Buffalo:
Yep, it's time for Bills fans' annual reminder that they're headed to Toronto the second Ralph Wilson dies. The good news for fantasy owners is that with Tim Hightower, Mike Shanahan only has two running backs with which to make your life in a living hell over.

Detroit at Denver: TEBOW TEBOW TEBOW TEBOW TEBOW TEBOW TEBOW TEBOW /Tebow gets eaten by Ndamukong Suh

New England at Pittsburgh: The marquee game of the week by far, and from what I know of the Pats and Steelers fans on the Q, I expect this thread to be a pissing contest by kickoff.

Cleveland at San Francisco: The 49ers are a win away from 6-1. No really, look it up. I know, it confused me too.

Cincinnati at Seattle: If this game is as bad as Browns-Seahawks was last week, then the NFL needs to ban Seattle from ever playing an Ohio team again.

SUNDAY NIGHT GAME:

Dallas at Philadelphia:
 Tony Romo! Michael Vick! I thought there were 104 players on the field for this game, but NBC and ESPN have assured that is not the case.

Q it up here during all the Week 8 action.

Jerry and the Cowboys organization should have saved themselves some time and money and just forfeited the game. At best just sent the cheerleaders to Philly. Since not a single player or coach showed up for tonight's game.

10/30/11   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

I decided to watch Red Zone and I saw 95% of the Steelers game anyway as they showed the game anytime either team got their hands on the ball.  That was a close game, but the Steelers beat Bill Belichick at his own game, take the short passes over the middle because the Pats' defense stinks.  And when you're on defense, hooray they actually rushed Tom Brady, something they've been afraid to do all these years!  Ben played well save that dumb INT, and someone needs to teach the Pats how to do an onside kick and drop kick after the safety.  Those last 2 sacks Ben took actually helped the Steelers because it kept the clock moving, Pats would've been smarter to run him out of bounds to stop the clock.  Where's Pat?  I'd love to see how he responds to Roethlisberger throwing 36-50 for 350+ yards while Brady threw for less than 200.

Hey media if you are going to give him all the credit when they beat a bad team, then give him all the blame when he plays like crap(even if the rest of the team plays like crap too). You can't just give him the credit when they win and blame the team when they lose

Also 13 sacks in 2 games, I thought MHM's ability to scramble was the great part of his game?.

 I know they don't need a perfect record...I know how it works  

If the Rams had won that game, their record would have been 8-8, and at least a .500 team would have taken the division. But, they had a bad game that day (Seahawks certainly didn't win that game. St. Louis lost it). They were a better team last season than the Seahawks, no question. 

I know they had a better record last year than the 2 seasons before...as I said, they've sucked since '06. We have Tim Ruskell to thank for that, with his brilliant drafts, trades, and people he let go into free agency. He was the worst thing to happen to the Seahawks in franchise history. At least now instead of signing old veterans to expensive long term contracts and saying "see-ya" to proven young guys who get it done, we're restructuring contracts to let the old timers go earlier, paying them less, and getting a young team out there that can have some sort of future. It's not going to happen this year, but at least we're on the right track.

 Uhm...they sucked last year too. 7-9 record to make the playoffs doesn't make a good team - it just means the rest of the division was worse (although, the Rams were a better team last year than the Hawks...just not that day). Really, the Hawks have sucked since 2006. Thank you, Tim Ruskell.

Oh please don't make excuses for my QBs...both of them suck walnuts. Young "not-quite-together" o-line doesn't help that running game, I know (and also doesn't help the QBs), but I can't imagine either of these QBs would fair much better with a much better o-line. Also...dropped passes like crazy today. This entire team is fubar.

So the Steelers D held the Patriots to a 3 and out on their first drive. Now are moving the ball on their second drive just outside the redone. Patriots have to call a timeout, they've had to answer yet for the Steelers offense.


I'm sorta in shock right. Something has to go terrible wrong any time now.

beach_pirate wrote:
I thought they announced Whitehurst was the starter going forward "last week"???
Am I wrong?

He started last week because Jackson was out with a strained pectoral muscle, and early this week Carroll was saying that Jackson could get the start this week if he was ready to go. I figured when they declared him active that he'd get the start (even the Seahawks beat reporter Tweeted Jackson would probably start), but evidently I was wrong. So, they have him listed as backup today instead. I never heard anything about Whitehurst being named the starter going forward though, especially as much as he sucked it up last week.

I get that, but we'll just have to agree to disagree. 

Also, I'm not sure what Aaron Rodgers has to do with anything - he went 24th overall (not 1st, as everyone thinks Luck is going to), and I thought he sat the bench for a bit...I could be wrong.

Anyway, I don't feel like having this argument anymore. I know how I feel about the craziness and I don't want my team to try and "suck for Luck," and you know how you (and obviously a ton of others) feel about it - and neither of us is going to change the other one's mind.  

You are right, Rodgers did sit on the bench for a couple of years. But had Green Bay said, we are fine with what we have and can find someone down the road. Well they might not have won the SB last year(who knows). If a pot of money is sitting in front of you are you going to walk past it, hoping you can find one somewhere down the road? Ryan Leaf's are a rarity in the NFL Draft and  so are Tom Brady's.

/fixed.

As I said earlier - there are a few decent QBs in the draft. Who's to say Luck will be the only successful one from this pool? I know my team needs a quarterback...BADLY...but even I'm not all crazy sprung on Luck. I know we'll get a fairly early draft pick; I don't see the Hawks winning a whole lot more games. But to lose on purpose? That destroys the integrity of a team, IMO, regardless of why they're doing it or how badly they need a good pick for the future. I want my team to try their best every game, win or lose, for them to learn something and improve. Then they don't need a savior to come pick them up off the ground and dust them off, and have all the pressure of carrying the team on his own. When they do draft someone great (Luck or any of the others available), it'll just be one more cog in the machine.

I'm over this conversation. I came to discuss the games - not perpetuate the nonsense.

Not even then, I can only say, had Dallas taken care of their business, they wouldn't need help from the Pats!

Patrick Peterson just broke 6 or so tackles, returned the kickoff  88 yard to the house. 17-3 Cardinals lead the Ravens.

* add a Flacco INT, Arizona on the 10 getting ready to punch it it again.

Look. **** Boston! It rolls off the tongue beautifully, I love to say it but I can not despise and entire area for no valid reason. You boys are insane. I will adhere to this rule for this one game, but I don't like it. LOL


And, lol Jess. I think he would stroke out.

5 possessions, 5 Punts (last one blocked for a TD).

As I reach for another beer ..... When is Draft Day?

Dolphins 14-3. WTG Fish. Win 1 for us.

Colts/Titans highlight thus far:
Titans #37 Campbell, WORST flop EVER in the history of sport trying to draw a Personal Foul on Indy. LMAO. C'mon Man!!!

On another note...tee hee...Booger's the official 

They're so dumb. I am enjoying watching him coach from the sidelines. They show him as much as the team on the field. But, I think he may need to go back to doing that from the booth because at one point last game, I thought he was going to snatch a helmet and run on the field.

I decided when I started seeing it that it was to make fun of him. Whether I'm right or not, it works for me...that's the only way I can tolerate it.

Different subject, I'm pretty sure I've been forbidden to root for the Pats. Is there not some sort of sports and friendship rule against this? I need to consult the manual. (It probably needs a poll)
