NFL Week 3 Throwdown

What a season this one is turning out to be.  With each passing game a new twist develops in the NFL and here are the foot notes of week 3:

  • No AP, no problem because Brett Favre is still Brett Favre.
  • Despite being victims of another Brett Favre comeback, you still have to be impressed with Mike Singletary’s 49ers who showed they can compete with the conference’s elite.  They have been the most interesting story coming from the city since the tiger that escaped from the zoo killing a man and mauling two others.
  • I can’t believe I’m going to say this but….how ‘bout them Bengals?!
  • “3” is the magic number for high profile rookie quarterbacks this season: Matt Stafford got the Lions their 1st win since December ’07 in his 3rd try; Mark Sanchez became the 1st rookie QB to go 3-0 in his first three starts.
  • The Patriots look more like the club from ’04 than the undefeated team of ’07 but the flip side is that they last won the Superbowl in 2004.
  • The Broncos are the least talked about undefeated team in the league despite beating teams like the Raiders and the Browns.
  • Who said pint-sized receivers are out?  Tell that to DeSean Jackson.
  • T.O’s streak is broken but no QB bashing at the post-game press conference?  What’s up with that?  Oh, I forgot its only week 3.  What was I thinking?  He saves that stuff for later on.
  • The Saints continue to march on and look awfully scary in doing so.
  • Da Bears barely escaped the Seahawks and were not fazed by those hideous lime green jerseys.
  • Even Chris Berman can’t put a funny spin on the Rams’ woes.  They’ve lost 13 in a row dating back to last season and could be worse than the ’09 Lions.
  • The Jets and Ravens are both 3-0.  Did you ever think you’d ever be able to say that seriously?
  • There was a game played in Tampa Bay but only the Giants showed up.
  • Peyton Manning clipped the Cardinals’ wings and reminded Warner no matter what insignificant record he may break, Peyton is still the man.
  • Pennington is already working on becoming the 2010 Comeback Player of the Year.
