Looking at Week 9 in the NFL

 

Looking at Week 9 in the NFL

By Amy Lignor

 

Week nine began with a Thursday night game that was NOT put on CBS so all could watch. Of course, turns out it wasn’t harmful to the lovers of football out there who do not have the NFL station. In fact, “The Big Bang Theory” was far more entertaining. The Cleveland Browns met up with the Bengals. Yes, Manziel threw a TD and he looked far better and more NFL, week 9, football update, Amy's Anglegrown up than he ever has for the Cleveland Browns, but the Bengals still won easily. It is a fact that someone should tell the Browns’ coach that the kid should play the rest of the year to give him experience. Their season is over, but Manziel deserves a chance to learn. As far as the Bengals? They remain one of the undefeated teams in the NFL this season, yet will that last for the entire season? No one really knows, but those so-called “experts” are only giving the Patriots a shot at remaining undefeated until the very end.

 

Speaking of…the Patriots met up with a team that should be easily smashed into the dust. Yes, they hosted the Redskins, a team that has seen the luck of last second throws. They went head to head with the Patriots on New England territory and…no drum roll is necessary for this one, folks. Pats win easily. They remain undefeated and the Redskins remain, well…the Redskins.

 

Last week Eli Manning threw for six touchdowns, no interceptions, and still got robbed of a win. This week, robbery occurred in the 49ers organization. QB Kap was placed on the bench. A QB who was one call away from earning the Lombardi trophy on his first time out; one play/call away from getting back there in only his second try, and now he’s being treated worse than RGIII. Guy has one of the biggest contracts in football…yet cannot play the game he knows how to play. Eagles or Jets anyone? Someone needs to come a calling because the 49ers are destroying what could be a Hall of Fame QB right before our eyes.

 

Speaking of a QB who should be crying. It is more than apparent that the Cowboys need Romo back ASAP. Look up in the box; Jerry Jones is absolutely sick. Look down on the field, and Romo looks way sicker than he should be by now during his recuperation. They chose to put a star back in before it was time. He could get hurt. Chances are they are now on Romo’s back to get out there as well so they don’t keep being embarrassed. Romo can’t. Period. Unless Jerry Jones wants his QB on the injured list for the rest of time, they had better grow up and deal with the fact that this season is over for them.

 

Green Bay versus Carolina. Carolina is on a huge roll, as we all know. And Aaron Rodgers and the Pack have been yapped at all week for losing at Mile High last week. But…come on, man. Rodgers and the Pack are still good at what they do. They are also allowed a bad day…even two. Carolina was undefeated going into this, and they remain that way. The Pack almost came back, but they are now facing back to back losses. Is it a big deal? Is the season over for them? No. But the yappers will be on the air all next week to say everything that’s wrong with the Hall of Fame QB and how the Packers are done. I wouldn’t bet on this. And please, someone tell me what that stupid end zone celebration is that Cam Newton is doing? I hate to tell Cam, but every person in the NFL is taught a lesson. They may ride a big high for a while, but the fall hurts. And it does come at least once in a career. Don’t believe me? Call Kap.

 

Dolphins and Bills: Perhaps the Bills have woken up. Have they turned away from whining and turned back to playing football; or, have the newly polished Dolphins knocked another to the ground? Whichever fan you are, the Dolphins did put up another loss, and the Bills have a win finally. They were quiet this past week. Maybe being quiet and earning a win will teach them something.

 

The Pittsburgh Steelers needed a win badly, but the Oakland Raiders were not going to make it easy. Thankfully, when all was said and done, Big Ben walked away with an OT win.

 

Oh yes, there were others, but the headlines will still come forth from the two teams everyone wants to talk about constantly. Yes, Brady and the Patriots rock. No, the Packers are not dead. But…bring on the experts.
