What We Learned: NFL Week 6

Tampa Bay Bucs

Raheem Morris’ club showed a tremendous amount of fortitude and resolve in their big win over the Saints. The Bucs responded admirably after a 45-point drubbing last week against the 49ers. Josh Freeman showed a ton of leadership and stepped up a put the offense on his shoulders in the absence of Legarratte Blount, while Earnest Graham more than filled the void in the backfield. Even the defense stepped up, as they held the Saints to 20 points without run-clogger Gerald McCoy.

Washington Redskins

The great Romeo Crennel once said, “they are who we thought they were.” Well, in this case, the Redskins “are NOT who we thought they were.” Everyone’s new favorite quarterback, “Sexy” Rex Grossman, was absolutely horrible against a desperate Eagles squad. Grossman threw 4 interceptions before being replaced by Shanahan’s boy John Beck. In his defense, Beck wasn’t half-bad as he managed the game and at least made the score look respectable. The Skins’ defense is legit, but their offense is a crap shoot as their quarterbacks are inconsistent and their running game is in flux. I look for this game mark the beginning of a downward trend in D.C.

Tom Brady

Rob Ryan’s “kitchen sink” defensive scheme definitely made Tom Brady feel uncomfortable, especially in the first half. Brady was not himself for most of the game, throwing 2 interceptions and forcing the issue at times. But, as only the greats can, “Tom Terrific” showed why he’s considered one of the best to ever play the position. The Patriots found themselves down 3 points with 5 minutes remaining in the final quarter when Tom Brady shrugged off 3 uncharacteristically mediocre quarters and led the Patriots to yet another vintage late victory.

Jim Harbaugh & Jim Schwartz

The San Francisco 49ers fought back and overcame an early 10-point deficit to hand the previously unbeaten Detroit Lions their first loss of the season. As 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh and Lions head coach Jim Schwartz met at mid-field at the conclusion of the game, let’s just say things got a little hairy. Harbaugh was amped up and got a bit overzealous during the post-game handshake with Schwartz, who took offense to the hard slap on his back. Schwartz got into Harbaugh’s face and exchanged words and some bumping before they were quickly separated. Both Harbaugh and Schwartz should expect some fines coming their way at the hands of Pharaoh Goodell.
