Midweek Thoughts - October 22, 2013

My pro picks in the land of the National Football League were only sixty percent accurate.  Ouch!  We'll see how Josh Freeman shapes up in his quest to lead the Minnesota Vikings as their new quarterback.  Rumors abound that Michael Vick will lead the Eagles in their game against the New York Giants.  Giants fans are ecstatic that the G-Men logged their first win.  If Vick is healthy, maybe the tandem quarterback system will work.  The jury is out here.  The two winless teams left include the Tampa Bay Bucs and the Jacksonville Jaguars.  If those two teams played, someone would eventually win.  The Jags offense is nonexistent to say the least.  Unfortunately, they don't play each other this year.

Washington Redskins' safety Brandon Meriweather needs to be taken to the woodshed for some of the hits he's laid on people.  Suspension may work wonders for his grasp on reality.  Helmet-to-helmet hits look brutal on film; I only watch the action once because the thought of a player's brain slamming hard against the skull after a deliberate attack sickens me.

The World Series begins tomorrow night. It's just a sea of red. Out in Los Angeles, they're wondering if Mattingly will return next season as manager.  If the Dodgers cut him loose, then someone else will land on him like a duck on a June bug. Lady Grid out.
