Week two of the National Football League saw its many ups and downs in what already appears to be a wild and unpredictable season. All 32 teams were in action, and every game created a storyline to talk about.
After week one’s downfall, many people were questioning Tony Romo’s toughness and ability to win the big game. Romo proved all his doubters wrong by playing through a cracked rib and a punctured lung to lead the Cowboys to an overtime victory over the 49ers.
I bet the 49ers regret not pursuing Nnamdi Asomugha a little harder during the offseason.
Sorry Chiefs’ fans, but the playoffs are not going to happen again this year. Kansas City looks atrocious this year, and any previous Pro Bowlers on the team might want to start protecting their knees a little better if they do not want a season-ending injury.
Actually, Matt Cassel is the only Pro Bowler left, and most Chiefs’ fans would not mind if he were not playing anymore. Do not be surprised if this is Todd Haley’s last year as head coach.
Wow, Cam Newton looks like a stud. Two weeks and two 400-yard passing days is amazing for any quarterback, but it is unbelievable for a rookie in his first two games. As soon as he gets a little bet with his decision-making, he is a lock for a pro bowl.
It looks like the Panthers have found their quarterback of the future, and they should be set for quite a while if Newton can stay healthy.
Look out for flying monkeys because the Detroit Lions are 2-0. This team looks great, and if Matthew Stafford’s shoulder does not fall off, they could be a playoff contender. There could be a pair of excellent Packer-Lion games this season, and the Lions have a chance to sweep with how bad the Packers pass defense has looked in the past two weeks.
Sexy Rexy Grossman has led the normally abysmal Washington Redskins to an undefeated start. Yes, the same Rex Grossman who threw 98 interceptions and three touchdowns in 2006.
I, for one, am all in on Rextacy this year. Is that Santana Moss triple-covered downfield? Rex is throwing it anyways, and with how well he is currently playing, he might just connect with a player of the same colored jersey.
Philadelphia better hope Michael Vick’s concussion does not keep him out too long. Their self-proclaimed “Dream Team” is not going to win too many games without their star quarterback.
The Eagles blew a good lead and an almost certain victory after Vick exited the game on Sunday night. They definitely need him if they are going to win that Super Bowl they have been talking about.
Anyone playing a Survivor League needs to pick the San Diego Chargers this week over the Chiefs, but if the Chargers are not available, Tennessee is solid pick over the Broncos. They proved their worth after a solid win over the bruising Baltimore Ravens last week.
Week three looks to be a great week of football, featuring a promising divisional matchup between the Packers and the Bears.
