San Diego Chargers
Kansas City Chiefs
Oh what a night it was for San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. With a 24-0 lead at halftime he channeled his inner Brett Favre and proceeded to give the football away like it had molten lava on it. He threw four gunslingers and even added two fumbles for good measure to give him the weekly victory. This was a nice turnaround for NFL quarterbacks this week as in Week 5 the top dog for interceptions only had two. That’s weak sauce. This week there were even three quarterbacks (Matt Ryan, Andy Dalton, Alex Smith) that threw three gunslingers and six that threw two. Not too shabby. That means in Week 6 quarterbacks across the league got Jon Gruden’s memo that they weren’t trying hard enough and that they needed to put in some extra effort to try and get that ball through triple coverage. Well done.Here’s an update of the weekly winners (I started doing this in Week 4):Week 6: Philip Rivers – 4Week 5: (tie) Matt Cassel, Mark Sanchez, and Blaine Gabbert – 2Week 4: Tony Romo – 5W...

Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick admits that he needs to play at a consistently high level for his team to have any success this season.“It has just been very inconsistent all year,” Fitzpatrick said, via BuffaloBills.com. “A lot of that falls on me and my play. I did not and have not started the year the way I wanted to. I think starting out with the three-interception...
He's my quarterback. Famous words from an infamous wide receiver, but in reality the words ring true. Tony Romo is your quarterback Cowboys fans, for better or worse.The post Ride Or Die With Tony Romo appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
Tony Romo isn't the type of quarterback to call out his teammates, even if he thought they did something incorrectly.
Following what was the final offensive play the Cowboys ran Sunday in Baltimore, wide receivers Kevin Ogletree and Miles Austin jogged back to the line of scrimmage despite a running clock, likely costing their team an extra play that could've improved the...
Chiefs fans were hoping to get a quarterback change after Matt Cassel could not get anything going in the first four weeks. In Week 5 some fans cheered when Cassel went down with a concussion. In Week 6 they found out that Brady Quinn is not the answer.Tampa was able to hold Quinn and the Chiefs to only 260 total yards, no offensive touchdowns, and limit their own mistakes on the...

They consistently pounded him in his ribs. They went low and hit him in the legs. They hit him everywhere, but the...
The love story between Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey and quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is well documented at this point. Both Gailey and GM Buddy Nix continue to stand behind Fitzpatrick no matter the results we see on the field.Fitzpatrick’s accuracy and erratic play have made many question his seven-year $62 million dollar contract, maybe even Steve Johnson.One of Stevie...
Michael Vick and his Philly teammates are likely going to think about this one for quite a while. They had this game WON. In its own way, a win today could have made a statement of real-ness to non-believers of the National Football League.A 4-2 record despite what, TWELVE turnovers directly attributed to Vick in just six games? How incredible!A share of first place in the NFC East...
Have you ever seen an NFL quarterback look like such a little baby? Seriously…all Philip Rivers does is complain, make stupid faces, throw interceptions, and throw temper tantrums on the sideline. I’m so sick of talking-head “experts” putting him in the category of “almost elite”…right outside of Brady, Brees, Rogers, and Manning. This guy is [...]
It would not be surprising to come across the news that Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has taken off to an exotic island to clear his head during the team’s bye week.After losing what should have been a runaway game to the Detroit Lions, a large section of the Eagles fanbase have become pretty resolute in the theory that they want to see what backup quarterback Nick Foles can...
It was the best of the Cowboys. It was the worst of the Cowboys. All wrapped up into one game.
Sunday's 31-29 loss to the Ravens was time capsule-worthy of the Romo era: Good enough to get close. Bad enough to lose.
Most of the postgame attention will focus on clock management. The Cowboys executed perfectly to get in position for a game-winning field goal, then did everything...
Eagles Coach Andy Reid Says Mike Vick Is Still The Starting QB -
Philadelphia head coach Andy Reid reiterated that Michael Vick is his starting quarterback “right now.” When making the Juan Castillo announcement, Reid said there will be other changes. The starting quarterback position won’t be one of the them right now even though Vick has 13 turnovers in six games. Still,...
Romeo Crennel doesn't like quarterback controversies. So why did he create one? The Kansas City Chiefs coach announced this week that Matt Cassel had been cleared to return to non-contact practice work with the team after missing a week because of a concussion. In doing so, Crennel made sure everyone understood that Cassel and last week's starter, Brady Quinn, would split...
I completed my sixth trade with Adam of My Cardboard Mistress fame. You can review our first deal here, second swap here, third trade here, fourth foray here, and fifth exchange here. Adam sent over a nice array of PC additions, beginning with an unexpected but much appreciated Ryan Getzlaf sweater swatch that is numbered 085/100. It's my newest Captain Getz hit.A pair of 2012...
Joe has given me the opportunity to write a weekly piece here at Buffalo Wins and I’d like to thank him for that. The weekly piece will likely come every Monday morning and essentially revolve around one statistic that I feel is central to the team’s performance that week, or over the past few weeks, positive or negative.
Given the bizarre (to put it nicely) nature of this...
