So the Hawks lost to the 0-5 Wizards today. They seem to play to the level of their competition and they need to cut that ish out. You can't go out and beat 2 of the best teams in the league then lose to an 0-5 team and say you have playoff aspirations. Not to say that the Wizards won't turn it around because I certainly believe they're better than they've shown, but the Hawks have to learn to kick a team when they're down. You have to beat teams that you should beat if you want to contend for a playoff spot. They shot way too many jumpers and their offensive rebounding left a lot to be desired. This is why I really wouldn't be surprised if this team won 25 games or 45 games. They're so inconsistent that I honestly don't know what to expect from them from game to game. Woody has still shown no ability to make adjustments or take advantage of mismatches. He'd better get it together because he's not unfirable (probably not a word) anymore considering people actually have expectations for this team. The biggest problem with everyone's expectations are the fact that they are centered around the 2 rookies making an immediate impact. Horford has been very good and Law is doing his best, but we may be asking a bit much from them. We'll see where things stand at the end of the month and hopefully we'll know if this is a new and improved team or if they're the same old Hawks. Moving on.
Peyton Manning threw 6 interceptions tonight. Seriously he kept both teams in the game. I could go into detail, but he threw 6 interceptions and that's all you really need to know.
The Steelers beat the Browns.
The Bears beat the Raiders. Brian Griese got hurt and Rex Grossman came in and saved the day. I'm serious, he really did.
The Eagles beat the Skins.
The Cowboys beat the Giants. T O is good.
The Bengals beat the Ravens. Steve McNair is old.
Denver beat K C.
Buffalo beat Miami. Apparently they're still in contention in the AFC East. Right.
Green Bay beat Minny. No 300 yard rushing game for A P.
The Falcons beat the Panthers.
St Louis got their first win over the Saints. Yay for them.
