Today I will cover the NFL’s NFC, National Football Conference. The standings will be a bit off Week 2 because of Thursday night games. So keep that in mind when at the OTB this weekend.
San Francisco 49ers — (1-0) I have to say I am rather comme çi – comme ça on the 49ers. I loved Joe Montana…hottay! SF is a great city. I have detested the ‘niners for a long time because my ex-fiancé is a fan but we have ironed all that out so I won’t hold that against the team. Do with the 49ers what you will. I can’t do everything for you.
Arizona Cardinals — (1-0) No. This team is supposed to be in St. Louis. Do they even have cardinals in Arizona?
St. Louis Rams— (0-1) No. This team is supposed to be in Los Angeles. Derwood is a Rams fan because he has deep man love for Curt Warner, who I think is their QB. Apparently Curt Warner has retired. Probably because his team was in the wrong city and he is 51. Nevermind, he’s 41.
Seattle Seahawks — (0-1) Wow, this just isn’t the NFC WEST’s season. I gotta go with No on the Seahawks because in Portland we always have their games broadcast when we might like to watch another game. And Portland and Seattle don’t really get along anyway.
Chicago Bears — (1-1) No. I think da Bears glory days are behind them. Poor ol’ Bears. Former coach Mike Ditka is on ESPN’s Sunday pregame show and he has a spot called “Stop It”. It’s good. You should watch it.
Detroit Lions — (1-0) I don’t have an opinion on Detroit. Barry Sanders was really good. But Detroit as a whole isn’t in very good shape so I’d go with No on the Lions.
Green Bay Packers — (1-1) Yes! Green Bay has a great football tradition. The Packers QB, Aaron Rodgers, went to school in Beaverton for a few years so hometown loyalty, sort of. And Bret Favre isn’t there so I want them to win just to bug him. I dislike him more than Tom Brady.
Minnesota Vikings – (1-0) No. I can’t give a nod to Minnesota, Favre was just there.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers — (1-0) Yes. I loved Jon Gruden although he’s gone. I have always liked Tampa as a Miami back up.
Also, really pretty uniform colors. NOPE! Just ran the Google on the Bucs and I hate their new uniforms. They have been officially downgraded to a No, bad uniforms and no Jon Gruden means they are off the like list!
Atlanta Falcons – (1-0) Meh.
Carolina Panthers — (0-1) Flag on the play, made up team, 15 yard penalty and a No.
New Orleans Saints — (0-1) Sure. I’m not a fan of Drew Brees. I don’t know why. For some reason I am under the impression that he’s a baby. He seems like a good citizen and team player. The Big Easy needs good news. I loved when they won the Superbowl after Katrina. Let’s give them a Yes. Although I was for Washington for this past Sunday’s game.
Dallas Cowboys — (1-0) Historically my brother’s favorite team so Yes.
Philadelphia Eagles — (1-0) I really don’t care for Philthadelphia, my boyfriend’s car was once broken into there when we were visiting. Ahh, Philly can be your call.
New York Giants — (0-1) NEW YORK GIANTS!!! YEEESSSSS! The Giants are family favorites on my mother’s side. Remember when they lost to the Patriots in 2007 to give the Pats a perfect season and then came back and beat them in the Superbowl?! And then beat the Pats AGAIN this year in the Superbowl?! Remember that? That was awesome.
Washington Redskins — (1-0)I’m going with Washington this year because on the ESPN pregame show on Sunday they had a story about this season’s rookie quarterbacks and one of the rookies is Robert Griffin III. I watched the Redskins/Saints game on Sunday and RGIII, as he has been dubbed, rocked! I also like that the Redskins put III on his jersey. And one guy had Jr. on his and they spelled Pierre Garçon’s name correctly. I don’t know if other teams have that kind of detail because I have only watched one game so far but will let you know.
Just read this story on Comcast “20 Teams that Won’t be Going to the Superbowl.” And guess what?! Surprise surprise surprise. They agree with ME on all but three (3) teams. I know the Dolphins aren’t going to
the Big Dance the Big Game but I’m loyal. The Jets, I said I wouldn’t puke if they did well so there’s not a big disagreement there. And they say the Redskins won’t go but I say, “Ballderdash!”
