A depressing NFL season?

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

Is it just me, or has this been a disappointing season to be a fan of an NFL team? How many fan bases right now can say they are legitimately happy with their teams right now and haven’t had any disappointing moments? Not one, because on Sunday, the final undefeated team fell.
 
Yes, yes, we’ve all heard the “Can you believe only the Chiefs are undefeated?” stories last week, well that’s no longer true after they couldn’t score a TD against a Colts defence that isn’t exactly overwhelming.
 
If you want an idea of how much pain there can be this early in a season for fans, look at some of the traditional NFC powerhouses. Dallas looks terrible, sitting at 1-3 and last in the NFC East. They’ve made so many mistakes that even Jerry Jones has been left speechless.
 
The Minnesota Vikings? They just look plain old. And don’t even get me started on Brett Favre’s wang.
 
Green Bay got knocked around and some players were even knocked out against the Redskins. They could be missing Aaron Rodgers for next week’s tilt with Miami
 
Even the defending champion Saints haven’t looked so hot. Their vaunted offence gave up the ball and looked sloppy in a loss to Arizona.
 
And the team everyone picked to win the NFC West, well San Francisco is winless in five games.
 
Of course, the fans that are suffering the most right now are those of the Buffalo Bills. Sure, the Carolina Panthers are also winless, but at least they have some hope for the future with their youngsters. The Bills look almost devoid of promising youngsters. C.J. Spiller could be a game-breaker one day, but he’ll need at least an average offensive line to accomplish that. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is putting up decent numbers, but he’s only doing so against awful defences. These are some seriously sad days for the residents of Orchard Park.
 
On the brighter side, the fans that are probably the happiest are those of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Sitting at 3-1 after starting three different backup QBs while Big Ben the alleged rapist was suspended, they’re sitting in a great position to start rolling on offence and defence. It’s just too bad that they have to root for a guy who has now had two complaints of sexual nature filed against him over two years.
 
This week: 7-6-1
This season: 42-33-1

  1. A depressing NFL season?…

    I found your entry interesting do I’ve added a Trackback to it on my weblog :)

  2. It’s called PARITY ! Detroit should have saved some of those points for future games. Expected a lot more from St. Louis.

  3. Could Brett Favre become stopped by the NFL authority? That should be a big damage for the Vikings is my opinion.
