I was going for the Steelers over the Texans as well. I have always been a Green Bay and Dallas fan. I grew up as a Dallas fan with Green Bay a second favorite. For years now the Packers have been my favorite with the Cowboys as my second. I grew sick of the Jerry Jones atmosphere and also like more Packers players. This is a good year with both teams doing well so far. This week it was good the Bears and Vikings lost, but I was hoping for a Lions loss as well. Living in the KC area I am also glad the Chiefs won over a divisional rival. Also my brother is a Steelers fan and I can’t stand Houston. So, overall it was a good week.
[/quote]Yeah, I remembered you were a Green Bay kinda’ guy. Rogers is on fire. Jordy Nelson isn’t too shabby either.
Too bad they lost Woodson back to his old Raiders, though he’s getting up there anyway. Still got Clay Matthews though.
I don’t like Houston that much either, but I DO enjoy watching J.J. Watt. Surprisingly, he didn’t bat any of Rothlisberger’s passes down, but that may have been because of Rothlisberger’s height (I bet he’d snag a coupla’ Brees’s passes though.) He DID bring down Big Ben a few times though, an accomplishment itself.
I noticed that Ben started getting the ball off quickly after Watt caught him a few times. Can’t hold on to the ball as long as Ben usually does when Watt’s storming across the line.
Watt is one of those guys I’d like to see play for a Superbowl contender, but I don’t think many can afford him.
Troy P. (can’t spell his last name) is way past his prime, but I still enjoy watching him. It was funny when he launched himself over the Houston line off sides. He’s usually pretty good in that timing, but this time he blew it.
Andy Reid is doing pretty good at KC. I like him a lot.
Romo and Jason Witten are the two players I like at Dallas, but I just can’t get past the smell of Jones.
I don’t like any of the players at the Bears, particularly Cutler. I did like them in the days of Ditka, the Fridge, and McMahan, but those days are long gone.
I guess the Lions are the biggest Divisional rivals for the Pack now? I’m not really a Lions fan, but I like the Saints even less . . . which was why I was rooting for the Lions this past week. Stafford is good but Rogers is wayyyyy better.
