Tuesday Morning Quarterback Week 4
THINGS WE LEARNED-
The Dallas Cowboys are a bad franchise. This team comes into every season with a world of expectations and has failed time and time again since their glory days of the 90's. Yes they have talent, but what the Monday Night laugher against Chicago proved is that they don't have the type of pieces that it takes to win when it really matters… Cue Tony Romo INT.
RGIII is simply sensational. I made the case before this year's draft that RGIII should go before Luck and of course it is way too early to tell.
The Pats are going to be just fine. Yes, they came into the week under .500 for the first time since the Roosevelt administration, but outscoring the Bills 45-14 in the second half on Sunday showed that the minutemen are still pretty sick.
Fall foliage can turn any frown upside down
THINGS WE STILL WANT TO KNOW-
Yes, Arizona is one of three unbeaten football teams left in the NFL that are 4-0. The question is are they really that good or are they like that girl who looks awesome from far away, but then when you get up close you realize that you must have been drinking a lot.
Does Oakland really still have a football team? Has Cleveland ever? Are the Vikings just teasing their fans with their fast start or is the Christian Ponder Experience and those sick Vikings special teams enough to give them a real chance at a playoff berth this year?
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live on Mars? I often ponder this question during halftime of NFL games.
PARSLEY, SAGE, ROSEMARY AND PIGSKIN-
Be careful what you wish for… Yes, the regular refs were welcomed back like they had just defeated the German's in WW2, but the homecoming was short lived as not even halfway through Sunday there were tons of highly questionable and non-sensical calls and Sunday night there might have been the worst calls all season long in the Giants-Eagles game. The bottom line is refereeing in the NFL is very hard and no matter if it's a 10 year veteran or a former high school ref filling in after teaching math class at Teddy Roosevelt High, we are always going to think they stink
EARLY LOOK AT WEEK 5 NFL BETTING VALUE (CURRENT LINES AS OF TUESDAY MORNING) Rated on a 1-5 Bagel and Locks system
Green Bay at Indianapolis- (Packers -7 Total 48.5)- Everyone will want to see if the new guard can take down the old guard as Andrew Luck has shown flashes of the greatness that lies ahead for him in his career. Aaron Rodgers shows that every week and after a slow start this season he was back to his old tricks against the Saints and while many will think that Luck has a chance at an early career statement win, this game will be over pretty early.
Play – 3.1 Bagels on the PACKERS
ATLANTA AT WASHINGTON – (FALCONS -3 Total 50.5)- Atlanta is looking more and more like a Super Bowl team each week and even though the Skins have had some nice wins this year they still have a lot of deficiencies on both sides of the ball. RGIII will keep them in the game, but in the end Matty Ice just has to many weapons and the Falcons D is capable of taking over a game.
Play – 3.5 Bagels on the FALCONS
SAN DIEGO AT NEW ORLEANS-Sun Night (N.O -4 Total 54) -This is last chance time for New Orleans to save their season and while I have been saying as far back as the Draft this year that the Saints were going to have a tough year after losing their head coach and leader and D Coordinator to Bounty Gate, they still have a ton of talent and will put it all on the line in front of their soulful fans.
Play- 4 Bagels on the SAINTS
