Has everyone stopped watching football for the past 2 weeks?
Let's see what's been happening lately...
New England has come down with a thud. Now they are 3-3, and looking less likely to even make the playoffs. You'd have to expect that their talent didn't just vanish. Part of it is obviously the schedule. San Diego, Miami, and Green Bay are a step up from the likes of Pittsburgh, the Jets, and KC.
The Rams and Vikings are into the win column. That leaves just the Bengals. You would think with them picking so high in the draft every year, they'd get more quality players just by pure chance. And what's this I hear about the city of Cincinnati taking action against the Bengals "organization"?
If they'd shorten the games to 55 minutes, Carolina would be in the Super Bowl.
It seems Gruden and Dungy have now settled in to their new jobs.
If someone told you before the season that at the 6-week mark, Pittsburgh and Washington would have the same record, you wouldn't have been very surprised. If someone had told you that record would be 2-3, you might have been. The contrast is that Washington is in last place, while Pittsburgh is tied for first.
