Week 5 played out just about like my picks predicted. I’m amazed. The death of Coach Zimmerman’s wife on Thursday gave Cincinnati a greater reason and heart to win their game with Baltimore. Our deepest sympathies to the Zimmerman family and the Bengals for the loss of Mrs. Zimmerman. And kudo’s to the team for their caring support of their coach and giving him a win on weekend he really needed it.
Now some one explain how Buffalo could lose to Cleveland “IN” Buffalo? I just don’t get that one at all. Seahawks and Jacksonville was a surprise to me. Perhaps this is an indication that the Seahawks have stepped it up a notch. At least at home.
My poor Redskins are just in a down spiral. Too much money has been spent on players who demanded big bucks; but who aren’t playing to the status they demanded. Where’s the talent in the younger players? I think blaming everything on Coach Zorn is ridiculous. He can only do so much with Daniel Snyder’s interference. I hate that. Owners pay the bills and gloat about owning a team, but they don’t make player decisions, or interfere with the coaches they’ve paid to manage the team. They shut up, sit down and allow the professionals they hired to do their job! And if they don’t think they should do that, then I’ll point them to the amazingly great success of Tony Stewart Nascar Driver/Owner who’s number one rule seems to be – delegation and let his staff do their job. Hasn’t the NFL learned how disruptive and destructive owners like Jerry Jones and Daniel Snyder can be to a team. Someone smack these guys for me…please!
Ok so this is how the week played out. 11 wins, 3 losses in the 14 games played.
