Now we know why the NFL season doesn’t end after Week 1.
-- My MVP, Joe Flacco, didn’t look nearly as lethal in Philadelphia as he did in his home stadium. And as good as my Comeback Player of the Year Peyton Manning looked against the Steelers, he looked that bad against the Falcons, who might not lose a game this year as long as they can get Michael Turner a taxi after them.
-- The Eagles are winning with smoke and mirrors, which, let’s face it, doesn’t matter as long as you win.
Their opponents this week, the Cardinals, are my surprise team of the year so far. With the most over-rated and under-rated quarterback in recent years, Arizona is 2-0 with the Patriots game out of the way.
-- The Giants must have thought the Buccaneers were going to play that last play like they were in the Pro Bowl.
Reality is, if the ball is fumbled, the Bucs are in field-goal range and if they score, Greg Schiano is a genius. There was nothing cheap about it and even my 5-year-old looked at the Bucs lining up and said, “Dad, they look serious.”
