Impressions from Week Eight of the 2015 NFL Season

Another quick wrap-up, as I’ve some things to do.

[Miami @ New England]

  • (Watched, correct)

New England is perfect. A few big games against two AFC South teams isn’t going to suddenly make you a threat, Miami. Please try again.

[Detroit vs. Kansas City] (London game)

  • (Watched final two minutes, correct)

Jim Caldwell should be fired. Andy Reid? We’ll see.

[San Diego @ Baltimore]

  • (Did not watch, incorrect)

San Diego’s defense should be fired.

[Arizona @ Cleveland]

  • (Did not watch, correct)

Carson Palmer is an MVP candidate, at least in my mind. Larry Fitzgerald is a candidate for Comeback Player of the Year.

Cleveland’s defense is still shaky.

[Minnesota @ Chicago]

  • (Watched one drive in third quarter, correct)

Jay Cutler is not bad. Chicago’s defense is not bad. They just aren’t good.

Teddy Bridgewater is the same way.

[Cincinnati @ Pittsburgh]

  • (Did not watch, correct)

Not to rain on Dalton’s parade, but would Cincinnati have won if Le’Veon Bell didn’t go down? Just some speculation. Regardless, Cincinnati’s defense can play. And even Dalton can come up clutch against division rivals. Let’s see if he can do that in PRIMETIME tomorrow night.

[Tennessee @ Houston]

  • (Did not watch, correct)

Ken Whisenhunt should be f—

Oh, wait.

[New York (Giants) @ New Orleans]

  • (Watched final half of fourth quarter, correct)

Drew motherfuckin’ Brees. I knew these two teams’ defenses were bad, but holy moly! This was not what I expected at all. 101 total points? What a heartbreaker for New York.

[San Francisco @ St. Louis]

  • (Did not watch, correct)

Jim Tomsula is willing to start Blaine Gabbert.

Jim Tomsula should be fired.

[Tampa Bay @ Atlanta]

  • (Did not watch, incorrect)

Atlanta.

[New York (Jets) @ Oakland]

  • (Did not watch, incorrect)

Oakland seems to be the real deal.

At some point in the game, FitzMagic went out with an injury. He was declared out. Then, Geno Smith got injured… so they put FitzMagic back in there! And then after two passes, they put Geno Smith back in there! I found this hilarious. Todd Bowles should be f—no, he shouldn’t.

[Seattle @ Dallas]

  • (Watched, correct)

Seattle beat a Matt Cassel-led offense by a single point. I mean, I know Seattle’s offense kinda sucks and Dallas’s defense is okay, but really? The game really shouldn’t have been that close. To be fair, though, I was surprised Dallas scored more than 3 points offensively.

[Green Bay @ Denver]

  • (Watched, incorrect)

Congratulations, Green Bay. You aren’t as good as everyone thinks you are. I should’ve known after they struggled with San Diego. At home.

But how about that Denver defense? Wonder if they’d have the same success if Green Bay had any actual weapons.

[Indianapolis @ Carolina]

  • (Watched, correct)

Carolina almost lost to Indianapolis at home. They’re good, but at the same level as Atlanta is good. Kind of like, y’know, decent, but look better against lesser teams. Ah, well. 7-0.

  • Week Eight Pick ‘Em record: 10-4
  • Overall Pick ‘Em record: 77-42
