NFL: 5 Thoughts

October 14th, 2008 by cstark

1, Remember Shaun Alexander? ESPN’s reporting the former Seattle runningback and NFL MVP is headed to Washington, D.C., where the Redskins are close to signing him to a contract as a backup after losing Ladell Bettis to injury. Comment to Redskins coach Jim Zorn: You’ll be sorry.

2, Quick, name the only unbeaten team in the NFL. If you said Tennessee Titans, you’re right. Comment: I’ve always admired Jeff Fisher’s teams from afar. When they’re healthy, they’re always in the hunt. And the Titans might be the best defensive team in the league.

3, Don’t look now, but the New Orleans Saints are starting to look like the contender they were supposed to be the last couple seasons. Comment: Throught the first six weeks of the season, Drew Brees gets my vote as MVP.

4, Most overrated NFL team? It’s the ‘Boys from Dallas. Comment: The Cowboys are the Raiders with talent. Somehow, they’ll figure out a way to mess this season up. Jessica and Tony, T.O., Pacman, Jerry Jones … way too many distractions.

5. Favorite all-time NFL team? The Colts from the late 1950s through the 1960s. Comment: Johnny Unitas and his high-top black cleats, Ray Berry, Alan Ameche, Big Daddy Liscomb, Lenny Moore, John Mackey,  Jimmy Orr, Gino Marchetti, Mike Curtis, Don Shula. Need I say more.

    Some thoughts…
    1. Shaun Alexander won’t dictate the Redskins’ fortunes, Jason Campbell will.
    2. Just how good will the Titans be if Vince Young gets his head on straight?
    3. The Saints are good, but how much will not having Reggie Bush hurt? A lot more than people think.
    4. As long as the Cowboys stay messed up until AFTER the Seahawks beat them on Thanksgiving Day.
    5. Sorry, 49ers of the 1980′s. Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Roger Craig, Randy Cross, Ronnie Lott, Dwight Hicks, et.al.
