Congrats to Blitzburg
At some point yesterday, I was lost in thought about the football game I knew I wouldn't see -- and I had the following revelation. I had thought that it would be foolish to bet against the Packers, because Brett Favre is usually gold on Monday Night Football.
The revelation? I have nothing to support this besides John Madden. Cause, really, that's not exactly hard statistics, right? In fact, any student of statistics would say that it's hard to state that a player could regularly produce differently on Monday Night Football (which can take place in a variety of locations, weather, states of health, supporting players, etc.) than on Sunday afternoons. If there is a Favre tendency, I'd bet it is way smaller than I had thought about.
And good lord, that game supported that. I think the Eagles are clearly one of the better teams in the NFC, and while I didn't think they'd stink, I'm suprised by how well they are playing.
Congrats to Mark Underwood, owner of Blitzburg, for winning this week. Mark, a check is on the way!
I'll have more to write later, including how my entire thoughts about the NFL season are essentially under review - which is another way of saying I have no idea what I'm talking about. For now, this picture of Bill Cowher will have to do.
