Trying to figure out this NFL season is crazy, nuts and insane. It’s doubtful anyone’s going to come up with definitive answers. But what the hey, that’s what makes it fun.
I’m just back from Houston for the Packers/Texans game. Early on in our Dial Global Radio Network Sunday Night Football broadcast, Hub Arkush, our sideline reporter said something very interesting. “Dave, James (Lofton) I don’t think the Texans are ready for their moment on the big stage!”
True. And for those who figured the Green Bay Packers were in disarray, well, for one night they weren’t, shredding a Texans team that came in unbeaten, 42-24. Reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers put on a seminar, throwing six-TD passes, tying the franchise record.
Kudos to the Packers defense. It jumped all over the Texans who curiously, came out passing instead of establishing its outstanding run game featuring Arian Foster. Clay Matthews was everywhere and was dominant.
Oh, and that was me with a mild fist pump on the field, pre-game in Houston while watching the Seahawks rallying to beat New England. Nice to be in a Seattle state of mind. I was speaking with the Mariners Gregg Greene, the Senior Director of Marketing who was at the game at Century Link Field. He said the Seahawks crowd was so loud he couldn’t talk with his wife, and she was right next to him. I look forward to the Thursday Seahawks game at the 49ers, who had their butts kicked by the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants.
What’s up with the Eagles? They blow a 10-point fourth quarter lead losing at home to the Lions. As I listened to Eagles voice Merrill Reese, I could feel his pain.
By the way, that was a touchdown for Stanford at Notre Dame.
Just like Cano got the out at second base in game two of the ALCS.
The Yankees…pathetic offense at THE wrong time of the year.
I feel for Nationals fans. Heartbreaking loss the way they gave it up to the Cardinals in the NLDS. Thankfully RGIII picked up the DC sports faithful on Sunday.
All in all, it was a fun 48-hours.
