It was great to see Michael Gallup back on the field, and even greater to see him in the end zone. But did he look like he was still favoring that knee a little?
We (me included) keep referring to Cooper Rush as “gritty.” We (I) probably ought to start referring to him as “good.” He is making some big-league throws and is a very impressive athlete.
The NFC East is the NFC Beast? Who’da thunk it? Cowboys and Eagles on a collision course. Both of those defenses can really get after the QB. Philly sure wiped out that early 0-14 deficit to the Jags in a hurry!
I like John Harbaugh almost as much as I dislike Jim Harbaugh. But John screwed the pooch Sunday. Period. The decision to go for it on fourth down rather than kicking a field goal to take the lead was horrendous.
Rodgers says the rag-tag way the Packers are winning right now is not sustainable. Rodgers is right. Green Bay almost lost to Bailey Zappe and The Mothers of Invention.
OK, Kenny Pickett. It’s all yours in Pittsburgh.
Seeing J.J. Watt back on a football field and smacking people around did my old heart good.
I was certain the Texans would beat the Chargers. I was certainly wrong. I don’t think the Texans should give up on Davis Mills. But they’d better have a Plan B on file.
Rhule is about to walk The Green Mile in Carolina.
It’s Texas-Au Jus Week. Don’t give me any of this Red River Rivalry or Red River Showdown or Red River Shootout crap. It’s Texas-Au Jus. Zero excuses this time, ‘Horns. Zero excuses. Dunk Au Jus like a French Dip.
Sometimes you gotta fire folks. I saw Georgia Tech play a couple of times in early September. They looked terrible. Then they wacked their coach and A.D. Then they went out and beat No. 24 Pitt as 21.5 point underdogs.
Apparently Wisconsin reached a similar crossroads. I’m saddened by the firing of Paul Chryst, who is one of the best guys I’ve ever met. But it was time.
Kansas is ranked 19th. And the 5-0 Jayhawks deserve it. They’re not lucky. They’re good.
