We head into week 6 of one of the most unpredictable NFL seasons in recent memory. Nothing has turned out like it was supposed to. The Patriots aren't undeafeated, the Chargers are struggling, the Colts are suspect, Cleveland is terrible, the Bengals are still winless and a Tennessee Titan team without Vince Young is perfect.
My question is, who is for real?
McNabb and the Eagles have shown flashes of brilliance but tanked last week. Dallas is looking good. With the exception of their shocking home loss to the Redskins, they have been dominant. But it's all about egos with that team, and I'm not sure that new stadium is big enough to house T.O's. It will be interesting to see how they deal with adversity, Mr Owens "me first" attitude might affect team chemistry.
The Redskins might be the flying under the radar, but they have beat some quality teams. They beat Philadelphia, Dallas and handled Arizona. In the next three weeks they play Detroit, St. Louis and Cleveland. We could be looking at a team that is 7-1 going into week 9.
Remeber the Titans. How could we forget them? Vince Young ends up on suicide watch and the next thing you know this team undeafeated heading into week 6. Bottom line, the Titans defense is THAT good. Perhaps the most shocking part is that they are being lead by Kerry "Tom Collins" . This is a guy who didn't quite get it done with the G-men--but then again he was reportedly a raging alcoholic at the time---looks like he's sobered up now. But can he carry them all the way? I'm not con-Vinced.
What about the G-men? Nobody wants to talk about how they are still quietly shitkicking teams. Can somebody please explain to me why they aren't the odds on favorite to repeat---I think I just answered my own question. Nobody rePats.
Who is for real? Who is flying under the radar--who's a sleeper? This season, it's anyone's guess, unless your picking a team from Ohio.
