 (Times Union.com)

 

Charles Tillman’s play this season has grabbed the attention of President Obama.

Sunday’s marquee game has the 7-1 Houston Texans traveling to Soldier Field to take on the 7-1 Chicago Bears. This highly anticipated matchup has two of the NFL’s top defenses going head up.

Byes: Browns, Cardinals, Packers and Redskins

    Ron… I’m hearing Taps playing when I think of your Eagles… Too many holes in this team.

  2. Ron Glover says:

    Michelle, I’ve been hearing it for sometime now. A win today would just prolong the inevitable.

    the eagles have been exposed. they are not a good team.

    the Eagles team is par for the course when a way of doing things is spent, run its useful course. coach Reid can no longer put out a good team.

    and the league knows the content and limits of Reid’s coaching now, and are ready for the Eagles all over the place

    Mr Laurie as per his quality as an owner has waited a year, perhaps 2, too long to retool his organization

    exemplary in this type of situation was Irsay of the Colts, who quickly realised or recognized the day, and moved with speed and decision to make his organization current

    Laurie can use the example

    Listen…there is no one here with me at this moment so I bet myself that Fitzpatrick would throw and interception and end the game.

    that’s Fitzpatrick all the way. that guy will break a lot more hearts before he is done

    pheeew! what a week! I am getting killed.

    Atlanta cant cover…Miami not only cant cover but gets killed. and the Giants lose big time.

    then Buffalo beats the spread but loses anyway. maaaan!

    same phenomena is likely responsible for the gorgeous weather outside. I should be at the park not inside watching football.

    seves me right..this week

  6. mapoui says:

    Houston appears to be the somewhat stronger team, especially on offense.
    but Houston has been getting a very friendly game from the officials.

    Same thing against Tomlin’s team last week.

    as we seeing games called white against black head coaches?

    Chicago should have at least 9 points on the board… if not 13

    @mapoui

    I said the same thing about the Bears in the 1st half: dropped balls, fumbles, etc. probably cost them a TD or 2. Once Cutler left, I turned the channel….not a bad loss, however.
