"Obviously Drew Brees is one of the best quarterbacks to play in the game". After missing last week's loss to Carolina, he has been listed as day-to-day, but all mid-week indications are that he'll play. Guard Jahri Evans has been ruled out with a knee injury for the second straight week. Thus, in order for the Saints to reduce their cap number - as they are now projected to be over next year's salary cap - they will have to extend, trade, or release Brees, though it is also conceivable that he will accept a pay cut. Or whether Brandon Weeden or Troy Aikman throws/threw the prettiest ball Jerry Jones has ever seen. If the Browns lose this game to the beleaguered Chargers, the ranks of the anonymous might increase.
Sunday's game will feature a few different faces for Dallas. This could get ugly. In their opener against the Arizona Cardinals, they had two plays of 50 or more yards. These units work WITH each other to win the game. They fired head coach Mike Smith and replaced him with the Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator ace, Dan Quinn. There were reports the league was considering moving the game to Detroit's Ford Field.
Brees said pain is not an issue in his recovery and was not last week, because that is something he can overcome.
The beating quarterback Andrew Luck has taken this season on the field is taking a toll.
Payton is convinced Brees would be able to play after watching him throw in practice this week. If he can't go, the Colts will start 40-year-old Matt Hasselbeck, the brother-in-law of Fox News' Elizabeth Hasselbeck.
"We lost our identity for a game, and we're fighting to get our identity back", Mincey said. Chiefs coach Andy Reid was asked what they need to do to improve. Most believed he was likely a developmental project for the team to take over once Brees was finished.
The Cowboys allowed 65 points and forced no turnovers with just two sacks in games against the Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants. "We can't go play this game quick enough and because, listen, there is that sense of urgency to get a win". Especially if his arm strength hasn't fully returned since his shoulder injury? Immobile Peyton Manning behind a third-string backside protector combines for a recipe for disaster. And with that, he will quiet all the critics, at least for one game. Often a deep threat, the diminutive speedster threatens a defense underneath with jet sweeps, quick outs and option routes that stress all types of coverages.
Weeden posted decent numbers in the Cowboys' Week 3 loss as he totaled 232 passing yards on 22 completions for 0 touchdowns and an interception. And here's my pick for Thursday night's game between the Ravens and Steelers. The loss of their big offensive weapon, Jimmy Graham, could be a reason for the drop. Look for the Cowboys to dominate possession which will lead to a low scoring affair.
