This is my ninth season covering the NFL, and I have never seen anything like this.
The whole damn league is as unpredictable as ever. Forget parity. Call it parody.
Shall we keep going? The Ravens looked wonderful versus the Panthersin Week 4, dysfunctional in Indy the next week, then like the Pro Bowl team in Tecmo Super Bowl at Tampa on Sunday. Philadelphia has been playing cruddy on offense for weeks now, then simply dismantled the Giantsthis past weekend. None of it makes any sense.
Now, let the dissension commence!
C) Their best player has been in a walking boot.
Even before the tie, I had a few Bengals fans hit me up on Twitter to say the team is way worse than the top-five ranking it had received in recent weeks. (See: The intro above.) So where would #WhoDey nation put them? ( @HarrisonNFL) In other news, a tie is like having Corey Dillon rush for 1,400 yards and set a single-game rushing record ... for a 4-12 football team. Or a World Cup game.
