Week 6 Game Discussion Thread

This thread is for discussion of action on the field before, during, and after Week 6 of the 2006 NFL season. You can talk about who you think will win or lose before the games start and last-minute news on Sunday morning. Then during the games, discuss strange plays, great performances, and stupid announcers (of which there are plenty). After the day is done, we'll discuss the results of the week Sunday night and Monday before our weekly commentary articles appear.

A separate thread will go up Monday morning to discuss Monday Night Football so people don't ha,ve to reload all of Sunday's comments.

Please ask your fantasy football start/bench and waiver wire questions in the discussion thread for Scramble for the Ball.

Does anyone have any feel for how much Westbrook will play today?

6
by Doug Farrar :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 11:18am

Limited action, I read. Maybe 15-20 plays.

name drop alert: Dean LeBatard just referred to Football Prospectus on "Sports Reporters" (specifically in re: the projections that FO made about Philip Rivers being, you know a pretty good QB, when nobody had really seen him take real NFL snaps)

by navin (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 12:22pm

Westbrook is staring. However FoxSports says that he may only see limited action. I usually check www.rotoworld.com on Sunday morning (and throughout the week) to get caught up on fantasy news and its implications.

I need help...I've got 5 good WRs going against 3 good pass defenses and 2 bad pass defenses.

S. Smith (CAR) vs BAL
P. Burress (NYG) vs ATL
M. Colston (NO)vs PHI
B. Berrian (CHI)vs ARI
L. Evans (BUF)vs DET

The talking head's advice is that Smith, Burress, and Evans are "must starts" while Colston and Berrian are also starters.

The question is which of the 2 will get the most points this week?

I'm leaning towards starting Evans and Berrian. Your thoughts please. Thanks
Mike

Werder just said that a Dallas Cowboy "veteran" referred to TO as a bucket with a hole in it. No matter how much you put in, it's never enough.

I feel the need to whine about the NFL's policy to show only two games (instead of three) when the local team is playing. Also, why not just have a double double-header each week?

13
by andrew (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 1:56pm

Things that would need to happen for Oakland to beat Denver:

1. Randy Moss is promised a trade if he gets 200 yards, 3 touchdowns.

2. Jake Plummer trips over kicking tee, hits head and temporarily suffers amnesia back to the time he was with the Cardinals.

3. The raiders run an end around and the announcer on TV actually doesn't call it a reverse.

4.

sigh, I hate directv. well not really, but after forking out for their HDTV package and the NFL sunday ticket, I can't get the game I want in HD unless I fork out another $100... And I don't care what they say, the game I get on over the air HD always looks superior to the same game on their local HD channel.

Clever kickoff return in the Ravens-Panthers game... ball is bouncing, return man steps one foot OOB, fields the ball, automatic penalty on kicking team, ball spotted at 40.

And, oh, may the owners of "consumerpromotionscenter.com" rot in hell.

17

Eagles @ Saints or Falcons @ Giants folowed by KC @ Steelers
or Chargers @ 49ers in the UK.

Saints are looking good on this 1st drive.

18
by Sophandros (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:11pm

Field goal, Saints. I guess I'll take it, but I have the Falcons game on TV here (just a part of the exile...). At least Just Another Falcons Fan is forced to watch the Panthers game. :)

Wow Carolina are leading 0 to -2 according to gamecenter

20
by Sophandros (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:13pm

Why does NFL.com's gametracker say that Baltimore has -2?

Oh, and Eli threw a pick on his first pass after the Giants' defense forced Atlanta to punt.

21
by Marko (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:13pm

JAFF: That kickoff play by the Ravens has totally screwed up CBSSportsline.com's GameCenter. First, they said it was a safety FOR the Ravens, and had the score 2-0 Baltimore. Now, they have Baltimore with -2 points. A first! A team with a negative score! Not even this year's Raiders have accomplished that.

22
by Sophandros (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:14pm

And that's the Wayne Gandy that I remember from NOLA. Gives up a sack followed by a false start. Love that trade.

23

25

Cute: On the Redskins first play, they are in a Full House set and run an endaround to Moss, for -1 yard.

Delhomme and MCnair exchange bad interceptions.

27

McNabb is taking some pretty big hits today. The Eagles need to do a better job of protecting him.

28

Steve Smith and Keyshawn Johnson making some big catches on this drive. Carolina with a first and goal.

The Eagles defense is not impressive so far.

30

Vick fumbles and Sam Madison covers. Unknown whether the fork in Madison's back deflated ball, making it easier to cover...

32

horsecollar on bush, actually a good call.

33
by Moridin (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:29pm

I thought horse collar was supposed to be pulling them backwards while dragging them down, not just pulled backwards, since the legs aren't trapped at that point.

34
by James, London (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:31pm

TD Saints, who looked very good on offense again.

35

Eli sucks.

36
by MJK (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:32pm

I don't get this whole horsecollar thing. Defenders have to be allowed to tackle. I know certain tackling styles tend to cause injury, and so maybe you outlaw those, but it looked to me like the defender on Bush just grabbed his jersey and pulled him backwards. If he doesn't do that, it's a first down, and maybe a TD. If the structure of the equipment prevents the defender from tackling safely, shouldn't they change the equipment (e.g. re-design the shoulder pads) rather than changing a rule that unbalances the game even more egregiously towards offenses?

37
by Just Another Falcon Fan (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:32pm

Gah. I can get the Giants on about a 2 minute delay, the Falcons broadcast was on a 15-minute delay.

Actually, I like the Panthers some. An ideal season has the Panthers as a wild-card team, with the Falcons winning it all.

Teams I despise: Washington, Dallas

Int fest: Manning 2, Vick 1 + a fumble.

Looks like Kevin Jones finally came to life and this is what went through his mind

pretty cool to have a rushing TD in the season opener ... what? the season stated five weeks back? Maybe, i will pile on the bills to make up for lost time

43
by Kalyan (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:38pm

Looks like the Rams - seahawks game is turning into a points shootout ... fantasy owners smile at the heaven sent opportunity!

BTW, Eli Manning is 1/5 for 4 yds and 2 INTs. Guess, someone needs to tell him that the Giants game was the homecoming party (thanks to Peter King and the countless 'experts') and he needs to play at the level displayed in the PHI 4th quarter all game long and not in 4th quarters alone.

Wow DAL-HOU 2 returns fumled challenged and reversed. Good start for the Refs.

50
by James, London (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:42pm

A pick and a fumble recoverd? Who woke Sam Madison?

And the Saints pass rush looks ferocious. McNabb has had very little time.

51
by Marko (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:42pm

The Panthers' running game sucks. Hard. On the last drive, with first and goal at the 2 yard line, Foster had three carries, for no gain, 1 yard, and -2 yards. On the next drive, Foster fumbles on the first play, and the Ravens recover at the Panthers' 26 yard line.

52
by Kalyan (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:43pm

David Carr has 15 yds rushing in 3 attempts while dayne has 11 of 7 attempts.

looks like carr has to throw, run the football for the texans to have a shot at winning ... maybe he needs to even get a few sacks playing the defense for a real shot !!!

53
by Marko (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:44pm

And the Ravens fumble it back to the Panthers.

54
by Kalyan (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:47pm

some help

can someone explain the following play: PENALTY on TB-B.Gradkowski, Face Mask (15 Yards), 15 yards, enforced at TB 37 - No Play.

Penalty on the QB for face mask! Am i missing something here.

55
by Marko (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:48pm

Horrible pick thrown by Brees. Lito Sheppard made the play.

56
by Scott de B. (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:49pm

I think Brees expected the reciever to cut inside and he didn't.

56
by Devin McCullen (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:49pm

I usually use cbssportsline.com when I need a gamecenter, but I rarely work Sundays, so I don't use it for the NFL, until today. I'm not really thrilled with the layout - the field with the drive chart is a lot bigger than it needs to be, and having a scroll-down box for the last 10 plays is just annoying.

What really strikes me, though, is the boxes at the top of the screen with the scores of the other games. They either give you the result of the last play, or the current down-distance-position. But when it's the latter, they have an extra line, and for some reason tell you the number of people viewing each game. Who wants to know that?

58
by James, London (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:49pm

Ticky-tacky Offensive PI on Hank Basket. There wasn't a lot of contact.

Gradkowski threw a pick and got flagged for face mask on the return.....but, Gruden challenged the pick, the play was overturned, and the penalty still stood.

60
by Kalyan (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:54pm

#59: Thanks.

But there seems to be 2 face mask penalties - one on 2nd down and one on 3rd down. that was what made me wonder.

Touchdown Ravens, on a deflection in the end zone that popped way up in the air before being caught by Clayton.

63
by Erasmus (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 2:59pm

and the Boller-McNair QB debate begins

64

Kyle Boller has 1 TD and Steve McNair has 1 INT. Some karma !

65
by andrew (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 3:00pm

Lions line up to go for it on 4th and 1 from the Bills' 40.... and call timeout. They line up again... and Kitna commits a false start.

66
by Marko (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 3:01pm

Yeah, Erasmus, I was thinking the same thing. The Ravens just weren't moving the ball with McNair. They look like they have more life with Boller. I thought Boller played very well at the end of last season. If he plays like that, he's much more effective than McNair is at this point.

Boller throws a complete fluke touchdown and we're talking about starting him again?

I suppose if you ignore the fumbled snap and the two near interceptions he threw before that.......

69
by James, London (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 3:06pm

Reggie Bush can't pass. He's not having a lot of luck running either.

70

Vick sacked: 4 times
Vick pass attempts: 7

71
by Marko (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 3:08pm

Yeah, obviously the touchdown was a fluke, but the offense seems to have more energy with Boller in there. I'm not a Ravens fan, so I don't watch all of their games, but I've seen enough of them this year (I have Sunday Ticket) to notice that.

72
by Adam Gretz (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 3:12pm

Great pass by Delhomme to Drew Carter for the touchdown.

I'd love to be watching the BAL/CAR game right now but the Redskins always trump the Ravens on tv here in northern VA. Is the Ravens' "new, revitalized" offense storyline finally starting to die? I'm wondering how many weeks of negligible offensive output it will take for the tv media to realize McNair's got nothing.

85
by James, London (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 3:27pm

Saints go 3 & out and punt. As Wynn catches the punt one of his blockers is blocked into him and the Saints recover at the Eagles 20. New Orleans ST DVOA is gonna be good again.

Basket drops another pass, (his 3rd of the 1st half) and the Saints pick it off. Fortunately for the Eagles it's a Hail Mary at the end of the half. The Eagles have been pretty poor; it looks like the have a severe case of 'after the Lord Mayors Show'.

What a drive by the Falcons! 1 play, 90 yards, TD. A run straight up the middle by Warrick Dunn, with several missed tackles.

104
by Just Another Falcon Fan (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 3:45pm

How did Atlanta get the ball? The Giants were supposed to get the ball to start the second half.

105
by Sophandros (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 3:45pm

Judging from the box score, it looks as if Gradkowski is coming back to Earth (i.e., the Bengals studied last week's film on him), and looks like a rookie.

The bad news from that game (for me) is that Rudi hasn't done anything. The good news is that Warrick Dunn just broke off a 90 yard TD, and since he's my other RB, I'm experiencing a bittersweet moment. Actually, I'm happy for Warrick with that run because he's probably the best person that I've ever attempted to compete with.

In the Saints game, it looks like the defense is showing up, which is to be expected because the Saints braintrust came from Dallas, and they've gameplanned against the Eagles several times with mixed success. My only concern with the offense used to be their redzone efficiency, but it looks like that is getting better. Now if they can just learn how to use Reggie better as a runner...

I'm not a Titans fan, but I'm watching and I'm impressed. He's made lots of smart decisions, although he went OB on a 3rd down run rather than put his head down and try to get the yard. They went for it on 4th and got the conversion anyway.

Re #131
I don't think he's playing particularly better than he did last week when he went 10-21 for 63 yards. Difference is, this week the WRs are making plays and they're not running the ball as effectively. He still needs experience, but can make plays.

Not a great series so far for Omar Stoutmire. On consecutive plays he gets called for Defensive holding on 3rd down, which the Eagles failed to convert, and on the very next play he misses a tackle on Matt Schobel, who takes the catch 40 yards.

GK (Texans): How about giving a second round draft pick for either Taylor (Giants) or Turner (Chargers). They are worth more than some of the RBs you have.

BTW, a reality check - your QB has 1 more yd on 3 QB sneaks (15 yds total) than your RB on 10 attempts (14 yds total)

Final note -- when I took my kids down to Atl for a game last year, I was really surprised at the atmosphere around the stadium before the game. Nothing at all like any pro or college game I've ever been to. It seemed like every little tailgate party was in competition to see who could blare out rap music louder than the next. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the folks in the suburbs aren't all that comfortable going downturn into all that. That would keep attendance down.

Fumble by Morris gave Rams another chance.

The Titans go ahead by three. Looked like they didn't want to test Young's ankle (or other part of foot? I'm confused now).

Is Bush not running very well?

250
by Marko (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 5:02pm

This probably won't matter, but why didn't the Giants go for 2 after their TD? The TD came with 3:45 left. They are now up 27-14. With 3:45 left, there is no practical difference between being up 12 and being up 13. Realistically, it's going to take 2 TDs to beat you. They should have gone for 2. If they make it, they're up 28-14, so 2 TDs and conversions can only tie them. Since they are up 13 now, 2 TDs and conversions would beat them.

245: I can't wait to hear the sportstalk this week. Someone is going to ask for them to fire Richt. Just wait. This year's Tech/UGA game should be interesting.

But back to the NFL. Joe Horn is still the man.

252
by Not saying (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 5:02pm

Okay, it was the ankle. When the announcers say foot, seeming to correct ankle, I get confused.

Philly's pretty much bottled Reggie up. I guess that's why Joe Horn (he has to be referred to with both names...) is going off.

RE 259,260:

It's an old pro wrestling tradition when somebody you don't expect comes out, his theme music plays first and then he comes running or walking out. The saying has been attributed to Jim Ross, a legendary and long time NWA/WCW/WWE announcer.

Strahan just hit Vick HARD. The announcers just asked why he's still in the game.

Jesus. The Eagles get a sack and a stop on 3rd & 10 in a tied game with 3 minutes left, and the Eagles D have 12 men on the field.

271
by Sophandros (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 5:08pm

And a fight breaks out when Vick got hit along the sideline.

Not a bad hit, IMO.

273
by Catholic Samurai (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 5:10pm

As impressive as "Jeff Wilkins" two 49-yard field goals have been, Jeff Wilkins hasn't kicked them, he doesn't play for the Seahawks, and Josh Brown plays for the Seahawks and kicked those field goals.

Just to let them know.

274
by Crus, UK (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 5:10pm

Mike Lewis writes another character on that release notice by not chipping a Saints TE on a blitz, TE then catches a wide open pass behind him.

275
by James, London (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 5:10pm

Saints convert the 3rd down at the second attempt, and are now in comfortable FG range with less than 3 minutes left.

How do you have 12 men on the field? It has to be the clubhouse leader for the KCW award.

2:00 left in the Titans-Redskins game, and they pull us away to show a commercial and then (I assume) the kickoff of the Jets game. I hate being a football fan in NY.

290
by James, London (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 5:16pm

Saints convert another big 3rd down. They'll have 1st & goal after the 2 minute warning, and Philly have no TOs. The Eagles should allow the walk-in TD.

291
by Not saying (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 5:16pm

Play before Brown's FG, Seattle was trying to spike the ball. Got called for illegal formation. Linehan ran on the field yelling that the game was over. Hochuli had to repeat like three times that the game was not over, before explaining that there's no 10 second run off for that call. Still a stupid penalty (not getting up to the line). If Brown had missed, they would have to keep chopping wood.

292
by Steve Sandvik (not verified) :: Sun, 10/15/2006 - 5:16pm

As a Seahawks fan, I'd like to kill Torry Holt. As a fantasy owner of Torry Holt, I feel a bit differently.

If the Rams learn to pass protect a bit, they scare me a lot. I can't believe they gave up 3 sacks to the 3 man rush.

Andy Reid's clock management finally gets the reward it deserves, the Saints run the clock out to try a FG to win it with 3s left.
