The Jets will be a nice round +30 v NE and I'll be putting 3 on at silly odds on them to win the match straight up like they did last year!! :-)

Make your bookies watch the whole tape of the match :D

For the record I had the u3.5 sacks option.

The 'mysterious' sack is the one that has cost me.

The Box Score has the total as 4 and that's what CaribSports.com are going by.

The fact that it was the weakest looking asck you'll ever see is somewhat annoying.

Not much to be thankful for tonight if you're a Jets fan.

Probably the dullest second half I've ever seen.

I can't decide if the NFC is mediocre or just tough, so few teams have a decent winning record

saxoneagle 23-11-2007 07:13 PM

Well, I saw two of the three matches yesterday and after seeing the Packers outplay Detroit, I wish I'd switched off then!

The Jets were woeful although that is a little dis-credit to a very stable and solid Dallas D.

The match between the Colts and Falcons never showed up on my NFL Network due to something about me being in a different region...

Either way, I didn't miss much by the sounds of things.

Looking forward to the matches on Sunday and then next Thursdays match in Dallas where I'll pray for a Packers win!

Another fine result for the Cowboys last night. Incidently, they seemed to ease off the gas a little and took a couple of kicks instead of going down the Patriots route ....

Looking forward the massive game against Green Bay though, both teams in fine form ... :p

So taking 3 points isn't running up the score but going for it on 4th and 8, like the Pats did last week, is?

Surely taking a field goal is easier than trying to get 8 yards on a 4th down?

And given the reserve QB was in for the Pats, why shouldn't they try and give him more time on the field? (And yes, I realise they went for a 4th down while Brady was still on the field too but that was about 4th and an inch within 10 yards of the goal line...)

As I've said before, I don't agree with the 'big' issue about teams running up the score. If there good enough, let them play. But I do beleive that the way the Cowboys are playing they could have gone for those 4th downs and more than likely got them, the commentary said so themselves. The QB issue was the same for the Cowboys, they put in their reserve in the final quarter.

I've made decent money this season by backing the 2nd halves of Oakland and SF home games to have lower than 17.5 points. I often switch to the red button game late on Sunday and take great joy in seeing 'three and out - punt' 'three and out - punt.' Last week's St Louis v SF game was just the latest in a run of about 7 or 8 similar games.

This was exactly the same as those games, but without having a few dollars on it and being my team, it was indeed sh1t. Luckily I had a giant pile of ironing to get through so that provided the entertainment!!!!

Grim Reaper 24-11-2007 12:00 PM

The Giants v Vikings game is the one I'm concentrating on for Sunday night.

Giants should win but the debate begins in earnest when you consider there will be no Jacobs or Derrick Ward for the Giants' running game. PLaxico Burress and his lack of practice due to an ankle injury is now catching up with him after he scored TDs in the first six games. He's done nothing for weeks now.

Even in his 4th year Eli still hasn't stamped his authority on the team. If he was graded school style he'd be around a B or B-. Had a couple of B+ games in his life but still never come anywhere close to his older brother.

The signs point to this being a game where he will be needed to throw maybe 40 times to make yardage. How the Giants perform could depend on whether he hits his usual OK-ish 50% or maybe 70%-80% of those passes.

Given he was the number one overall pick just 4 years ago, it's strange that he's in that middle bracket of QBs that'll do a job but never win a game on their own a-la Favre, Brady, Manning snr.

Also we have the worrying precedent of the Vikes winning 24-21 at the Giants in 2004 with just 72 yards of offense!!! Have you ever heard a crazier stat!!???

Some concern amongst the Jets faithful looking ahead to next week's LoserBowl.....

This week I'll be somewhat interested to see what the field is like at Arrowhead. They've got a big college game there today (Kansas vs Missouri) then the Chiefs host the Raiders tomorrow.

I suspect the field won't look as bad the day after a game as Wembley did three and a half weeks after one.

Grim Reaper 24-11-2007 06:37 PM

With that info I think I'll be playing the unders on the Kansas/Oakland total

Strathclyde Eagle 24-11-2007 07:48 PM

Won't that be pretty low to begin with anyway?

Grim Reaper 25-11-2007 10:46 AM

Yes it will be low but a) both offenses are poor and b) scoring lines tend to come out early so don't factor possible adverse weather, meaning value can be found in backing unders if weather or pitch conditions deteriorate.

Grim Reaper 25-11-2007 10:46 AM

Enjoy your dollop of Sunday morning brutality guys

Decided to have faith in Eli and taken him to pass over 245.5 yards. Don't let me down, boy

Grim Reaper 25-11-2007 07:19 PM

Love it

Giants march 65 yards

Eli passes for 45
Reubens rushes for 25 on 5 carries

Burress and Shockey both notch up 20 yards apiece on the drive and 5 yards for Hixon

Doing wonders for Little Reaper learning her 5 times table!!

Grim Reaper 25-11-2007 08:07 PM

Eli now playing like a dick

0 yards in 2nd qtr

5/13 with 2INT
