Ravens vs Dolphins

This is a funny matchup, two quarterbacks who are rookies, or at least act like it. Chad Pennington is not a rookie, but his play is so different from last year that if he changed his hairdo, people would say he had just been drafted this year, and that he should have got rookie of the year award. Joe Flacco, is a rookie, and s just as good as pennington. Flacco has 2971 yards for 14 touchdowns, and pennington has 3653 yards for 19 touchdowns. Pretty close, huh? Neither team has any other big stars, but they dont have any very bad players either. Im gonna go with an upset. Ravens 2O - Dolphins 14

This game is filled with injuries, LT, and Gates for the Chargers, and 2 defensive lineman for the Colts.

The colts top two players are Peyton Manning, who was nfl mvp for his third time this year, and Reggie Wayne. Manning had 27 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Wayne had 1145 yards for 6 touchdowns. Im gonna go with the team less injured. COLTS 31-CHARGERS 21.

more firings

Denver Broncos coach mike shanahan was fired today. This was due in part to the fact that this year, the broncos were the first teami in nfl history not to make the playoffs after having a 3 game division lead. take note that on espn, 61% of people thought he should not have been fired, i agreed with them. Also, the Browns are thinking of hiring Mangini and are meeting with him today.

Cardinals vs Falcons

Two teams that werent even supposed to make the playoffs, end up playing each other in the first round. pretty surprising right? The Falcons are #5, and the Cardinals are #4. The cardinals have a great WR with Anquan Boldin, who has 89 receptions for 1,038 yards, and 11 td's. They also have Larry Fitzgerald, who has 96 receptions for 1,431 yards and 12 td's. The falcons also have some players to watch for including RB Michael Turner, who has 376 carries for 1,699 yards and 17 td's. The Cardinals have a good record, but play in a bad division. Im gonna have to go with the falcons. FALCONS 28-CARDINALS 14

Eagles at Vikings

Even though the Eagles are ranked number 6, and the Vikings are ranked number 3, you have to remember that the eagles have Brian Westbrook who is having a great season, and Donovan McNabb has been hot lately. Also, The eagles are coming off wins against the Giants and Cowboys. If the eagles had played this well all season, they would have a better ranking. The vikings are also coming of a win over the giants, although the giants did not play all there starters. Also, the vinkings have Adrian Peterson, who is the #1 nfl running back, but has had a fumble problem lately with 4 fumbles in the last 5 games. I think this will be a great game to watch. EAGLES 24- VIKINGS 20

firings, hirings, and retirings

The first coach to get fired was, duh, Eric Mangini, I mean the guy was younger than his qb, he's gotta be fired. Who ever the Jets pick to be there head coach, will be the 18th jets coach and 16th full time field leader. The jets also announced that they would like Brett Favre to stay on their roster for next season. If i were a jets fan i would not agree, good thing im not. Another coach who has been fired today was Lions coach Rod Marinelli. Marrineli was coach of the lions for 3 years, and his record was 10-38. (Ouch!) He was also th first coach in nfl history to coach a team to an 0-16 seaon. The lions also cut all of there defensive and offensive coaching staff except for the running back coach, Sam gash, wide receiver coach, Shawn Jefforson, and they moved the offensive coordinator, Jim Coletto, to offensive linemen coach. The Last coach to get fired was Romeo Crennel, who coached the Browns to a 4-12 record this seaon. The Browns also fired GM phil savage. The Browns will try to get retired coach Bill Cowher, who is now a sports analyst for CBS. Crennel played 4 seasons for the browns and had a 24-40 record overall.
