Redskins vs. Eagles
The Skins and the Eagles
face off Sunday or shall we say Donovan vs. Vick. Lets not waste
time with background stories that you are well aware of. Donovan never
fully got it done in Philly. No one remembers the guy who almost one
the game before the big game. When Mike Vick was the last one to practice
and the first one to leave, he was still leading his team to playoff
victories off natural talent and no work ethic at all. Now that Vick
is spending more time in the film room and less in the champagne room,
hes balling. Its quite evident with his 110.2 QB rating. Vick
will outplay Donovan and the Eagles will win this one easy. Donovan
will be left looking like the divorcee who is still bitter with a new
but uglier girl and Philly has moved on with a dime!
Florida vs. Alabama
Can you beat Mark Ingram
at home? Ingram was sensational leading Alabama to victory against a
game Arkansas team this past weekend. Big time players, make big time
plays and with repeat title aspirations on the line, Ingram delivered.
Florida has not been the juggernaut they have been in recent years,
but they are still Florida and that means something. The Gators are
full of speed and elite talent, but they have not gelled yet. John Brantley,
in his first big game will have to deliver especially if Jeff Demps
does not play. Janoris Jenkins vs. Julio Jones will be a big time matchup
for the next decade much less this Saturday. If Florida can survive
the first quarter and force Bama to pass they have a chance on the road.
If Ingram has the ball with the game on the line, they do not. This
one is too close to call, but well take Florida on the road.
Oklahoma vs. Texas
Heading into the Red
River Shootout, Texas was humbled by a supposedly average UCLA squad.
The good news is that UCLA didn't hang 66 on the short horns like
they did the last time they visited Austin. Oklahoma looked impressive
against FSU, but have struggled against talent they should have dominated
in Utah State, Air Force and a rebuilding Cincinnati squad. The Bearcats
are no pushover, but the Sooners should have rolled them instead of
sliding by with a single digit victory. The lethargic play of both teams
against their lackluster preseason schedules has taken some of the luster
off the game this year. Texas cannot run the ball or stop the run as
they were exposed against UCLA. Oklahomas Landry Jones looks good
one minute and lame the next. Look for OU to establish the run game
with Demarco Murray and make light work of a Texas team that is a year
away still. BOOMER SOONER!!!! s?x??
Stanford vs. Oregon
Oregon is the well-oiled
Bugatti sports car scoring damn near a point a minute this season. Stanford
is the old Chevy work truck that batters and bruises its opponents over
and over again. Which style will prevail? However, before I get to that ..if
I am an elite pro-style quarterback on the west coast. I must play for
Jim Harbaugh. I know you see that he has Andrew Luck looking like a
$60 million dollar QB right now. Oregons Derron Thomas and LaMichael
James are scorching up the scoreboards in Chip Kelleys offense, but
look for the surprise to be Stanford to win with their deadly accurate
QB and dominant run game. Oregon got cut up by Arizona State last week
and stole a win in Tempe. Look for Stanford to really give Oregon a
good whipping and for Luck to bounce back from an average performance
against Notre Dame. Cardinal by 17!
