NFL Week 9 Recap

Sports No Comment

Mike: The Seahawks defense isn’t all that bad. The offense on the other hand, yikes. They scored on their first play after an Eagles defender slipped. After that, no points. The Eagles’ offense didn’t seem to dominate but got the job done. Next week is the big test for the Eagles against the Giants.
Matt: The Seahawks fans were ecstatic after that first play. Then it all went downhill from there. Holmgren’s last season is seeming like a lost cause.
Ahad: This was another ugly game to watch. The Seattle offense is bad. The defense would have put up more of a fight if they weren’t missing key pieces like Tatupu and Kearney. The next time Lito starts complaining about his contract all the Eagles need to do is show the clip of him getting toasted for that 90 yard TD. The Eagles offense was very streaky and will need to be more consistent against the Giants.

Arizona/St. Louis
Mike: I said this would be the closest game of the week. Oops. I guess the Cardinals are actually good and the Rams got confused for a few weeks. The Rams still might be ok. It was just that Kurt Warner is going to dominate the Rams every time out.
Ahad: I believe the Rams honored Vermeil at this game. Apparently Vermeil picked this game because he wanted to share the celebration with Warner. No one said the Rams would win the game, but it was a classy move on Vermeil’s part to include Warner.

Matt: I only really got to watch the 2nd half. Byron Leftwich looked really good in relief or Roethlisberger, and the Steelers defense just shut down the Redskins offense. The Redskins actually had a few chances to score some more points to make it closer at the end, but they couldn’t punch it in. Campbell also suffered his first interception of the season off a tipped ball. The outcome of the game again correctly picked the Presidential race.

Matt: The Cowboys hung in there for a little bit, but the QB play was just awful. Romo being out really has a trickle down effect to the rest of the team. They can’t run the offense properly and score enough points to win any games, and thus, their defense is out on the field too long and put in bad positions after turnovers. The Giants are the best team in the NFC right now, and maybe the NFL, but they aren’t as dominate as one would think. Several of the injured Cowboys that are returning after the bye week will help right the ship somewhat and hopefully make a strong push for the playoffs.
