That was a hell of a game between the Saints and Rams. Drew Brees should be the MVP IMO this year. I also enjoyed the Patriots and Packers. It seems Rogers can't catch a break. 1st he was did in last week by his selfish kick returner and Sunday his RB fumbled in a critical part of the game when they had momentum. Guess those are the breaks.

Well I've come to the conclusion that Dak isn't a franchise QB and it doesn't help that Scott Linehan's offensive schemes are archaic. I know Garrett isn't going anywhere but JJ needs to let Linehan go asap. Not sure who needs to be the OC but it definitely doesn't need to be Garrett either.

Pete,

Brees and Mahoomes are far and away the top two MVP candidates. No others need apply.

I agree with you about Prescott. You guys are going to need to enter the great quarterback hunt again. To be honest it may be better if you guys lose as much as possible now. If I were a Cowboy's fan that's what I would want.

Well my thing is what good QB is coming out this year? All the good ones came out last year. And then you have JJ spewing that BS about giving Dak an extension....smh.

Pete,

Yeah its always a crapshoot. I'm hearing a lot about that Justin Herbert from Oregon right now but you know how that goes. Names will fluctuate by draft time.

Something that makes me sick is the Steelers absolutely loved Mahoomes but didn't move up to draft him. Sometimes if you love a guy you move up, especially if he's a QB. But they played it the usual Steeler way and waited to see if he fell to them. Well KC did the smart thing and moved up to get him. Now the Steelers can try beat him the next twelve years. Good luck with that.

By the way, how do you like lb Vander Esch? Remember when you took him I said the Steelers would have taken him and I thought you would love him. I haven't had a chance yet to really see how he is doing so I'm asking what you think.

Oh Vander Esch is the real deal. Sean Lee's days are numbered. If you ask me, I'd start him over Sean Lee and be done with him. Vander Esch is a throwback with raw talent.

Pete,

Yeah that doesn't really surprise me. I did a ton of research on him because he was the guy the Steelers wanted to replace Shazier and he impressed the hell out of me.

Another guy we really needed and they wanted but they didn't move up to get.

I'd love to get Lee lol, he's way better than anyone we have.

Pete he did nothing in HS but kick a**, lol. Perhaps the added weight? Or maybe the speed and power of the pro game? Tough question why he is so fragile now.

Seems he's been bitten by the injury bug since we drafted him in 2010. But anyway, I really do like the Vander Esch kid.

My heart just broke for Dez. The Saints were a perfect situation for him and just unbelievable how he tore his achilles at practice. Man oh man I fear his career is definitely over. Prayers up for Dez.

Pete,

Yep. That was the perfect situation for him. If anyone could have gotten what was left out of him it was Brees. It's a shame for him and the Saints.

Since prayer doesn't do a damn thing as been shown over and over again in the entirety of human history I won't waste my time with that, but I'll wish him a very productive very scientific based rehab so he may return next year if he wishes.

Since you asked. What I mean is history shows very clearly that prayer, no matter the religion doesn't do a thing. It's never saved anyone from sickness or death. It's never saved any people from extermination. Ask the millions of gauls the Romans killed, the indians we wiped out, the 6 million Jews the Nazis exterminated or the quarter of the worlds population the black plague wiped out, Muslim, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist. 25 million. Never stopped or prevented a war or genocide. The over 100 million in the two world wars. All those countless, useless prayers they sent in heartbreaking desperation.

So to recap, Baptist, praying to the Big Nothing is tantamount to asking a snake for help. You won't get much return on the investment. Unless maybe it's a talking snake.

That just is not true. Havent you heard of guys like Russ Wilson, Timothy Tebow and Derek Carr? They have had their prayers answered, multiple times. Just ask them!

They don't make carpenters like that anymore. Or ship captains. Or animal trainer's.

Ok, Some of the bigger results from last week: The Steelers take down the Ravens in Baltimore to avenge an earlier defeat and take hold of the AFC North. The Vikings maul the Lions in another division game. In the game of the week the Saints pull the pin on the Rams undefeated season with a 45-35 win at home in what was just a great game and very likely a preview of the NFC championship game. The battle of the legends, Brady vs Green Bay was anti climatic with the Pats winning 31-17. This week we have New Orleans at the Bengals. Hot Carolina against hot Pittsburgh. Detroit at Chicago. Jacksonville at Indy. The Jags need this win to have any hope. New England at Tennessee is a nice one. Seattle at the Rams and Dallas at Philly round out the more interesting match-ups. The Quoll Top Ten. Saints. 8-1. Wins in Baltimore, Minnesotta then at home against Rams force a move to number one. Next up a tough game in Cincinnati. Rams. 8-1. Close loss on the road in New Orleans nothing to be ashamed about. Home against the old division king Seattle. Chiefs. 8-1. Easy win over Cleveland. Easy win over Arizona next. Patriots. 7-2. Home win over a fading Packer team. Tougher test now in Tennessee. Steelers. 5-2-1. Terrific road win over divisional foe Baltimore. Next up at home against streaking Carolina. Chargers. 7-2. Keep showing they are for real with road win in Seattle. Next up the hapless Raiders, the worst team in NFL history. Houston. 7-3. They barely win in Denver for their fifth straight win to keep the division lead. A bye this week. Carolina. 6-2. The maul Tampa for their fourth straight win. Next up tough Thursday travel week to Steelers. Vikings. 5-3-1. Nice home win to push Lions back. Next up Mr. Bye Week. Chicago. 5-3. Tears the Bills a new one 41-9.....

If my Raiders continue to suck, I may have to fire up the old bottom five.

By all means Baptist. That would be a fine list. The run for the top pick in the draft.

Hard to believe are entering week 11 but we are. Man the season goes fast, well unless your say a Raiders fan. Last week two of the three hottest teams currently in football had their most impressive wins of the season with the Steelers just toying the the Carolina Panthers to the tune of 52-21 and the Saints doing exactly the same to the Bengals 51-14. Right now these two teams are playing the best all around ball in the league and their offenses look unstoppable. Chicago continued their lead in the NFC beating division foe Detroit. The Bears not only have a good defense but their offense is scoring too. The Colts pretty much ended Jacksonville's playoff hope with a 29-26 win. Well, almost anyway. The Jaguars along with Philly are the two biggest surprises in the league this season as far as failures go. We never expected the Jags offense to be that hot with Bortles but man, what happened to the stellar defense? Even the defensive backs suck and they are loaded there. The Titans just creamed the Patriots 34-10. When was the last time the Pats lost so big so deep into the season? I'll tell you, eight years ago. The Pats are still good but they are not the juggernaut of the last many years. The defense is weak, Josh Gordan has not integrated well into the offense, Gronk is getting hurt again and Brady looks like he may be starting to slip. They are not the sure bet to emerge from the AFC any longer. The Rams swept Seattle in the second close, really good game between the two to wrap up the division. They lost Cooper Kupp for the year and that's going to hurt. Dallas played by far their best game of the year taking out defending champs....
