If I could summarize Week 1 in 1 word I would say Unpredictable. I mean sure there were some games that everyone could predict the outcome (i.e. we all knew that Tennessee was going to woop the Raiders- Sorry Mayra) but what about those games that left us scratching our heads (Colts losing to the Texans especially with Peyton having a fantastic game.) What abot the Seattle Seahawks completly kicking the 49ers ass?
I want to feature a couple of key games of Week 1
New England Patiots vs. Cincinnatti Bengals (Pats-38, Bengals-24):
Seattle Seahawks vs. SF 49ers (Seahawks 31, 49ers-6)
San Diego Chargers vs. Kansas City Chiefs (SD-14, KC-21)
WTF was definitly going through my head during most of this game. I should have known we were going to lose to the team I like to affectionatly refer to as the Kansas Shitty Chiefs because I had a dream that we would. However, I am not going to jump to the conclusion that this is a bad omen for SD and it must mean we are going to suck this year. Hello? Could we have been playing in any worse conditions? The loudest stadium with rain starting a rookie RB. As much as all of us fans would have loved to see us annihalate (or even beat) KC we shouldn't be too disappointed we lost.
We have a lot to clean up. 1) Offensive line and Rivers needs to have better communication 2) Matthews needs to show what he can bring to our running game 3) Rivers needs to trust our recievers. 4) Merriman needs to play and our defense needs to tighten up and 5) our special teams can not suck ass (We gave up 2 punt/kick return touchdowns/)
Also Jamal Charles and Matt Cassel (KC) look really good. I will be super happy if Jamal Charles keeps up what he is doing because he is on my fantasy team.
I predict that this is going to be a great season. I think that the first week is always weird because of rookie mistakes, first game jitters, and trying out new waters. However, I think the teams will all settle into their own and the teams that are expected to win will most likely win
I am going to make my prediction for the Superbowl and I will think it will be interesting to come back here and see if I was right. I predict that Baltimore will win over Green Bay. I think its going to be really close in the NFL because there are about 4 teams that are strong superbowl contenders. I would love to say SD makes it to the superbowl but knowing my Chargers they are lucky to win 1 game in the playoffs...
Games to Watch this Week:
Colts vs. Giants.The battle of the brothers. I love a little family rilvary... I'll pick the Colts to win
Ravens vs. Bengals... I'll pick the Ravens to win but it is going to be a super tight game
Sorry if thats too much sports talk for you :)
