After seeing play in the past few weeks between the Elite and the Horrid teams, I have come to the conclusion that there are more BAD PATHETIC teams at this point in the season than at anytime in the 35 years that I have been watching this sport.
Are BAD teams simply not executing well? or maybe they are lacking in Talent? or are they simply not putting any effort in trying to win when they are down by 10 or more.
I see the bad teams practically throwing the towel in the 3rd quarter when down by more than 2 scores,it has become a trend this season.
We saw this in the past 2 games,The Titans were playing the Pats pretty tough for 1 quarter until NE started to score and it appeared that once the scores started building, they decided to quit.
The same yesterday when the Bucs scored to make it 21-7 then once NE got another TD to go to 28-7 they simply gave up,there was absolutely nothing left in their tank.
Like I said do you think its a matter of execution failure,lack of talent or no effort and giving up?
Kansas City,Cleveland,St. Louis,Oakland and Tampa Bay fit on this list - if not for one single game of intensity - KC,Cleveland and Oakland would have a doughnut in the win column like the other 2 - I give the Lions a pass since they have already improved their record from last season
I almost think that these crappy teams are all vying hard for who is going to get the number one pick in 2010
There could be 6 or 7 teams that win 3 games or less...That is simply the nightmare that Goodell could very well go through.
