  • How did the Saints let Vernon Davis beat them single handily?  Davis lit up the Saints defense for 7 catches 180 yards with 2 touchdowns.  You would think Greg Williams would make adjustments, but I guess his arrogance got the best of him.
  • The Donte Whitner hit on Pierre Thomas set the tone for the entire game.  After that hit the Saints receivers had second thoughts about catching the ball.
  • Tom Brady performance Saturday against the Broncos reminded the nation why he is considered one of the best quarterbacks of all time.
  • The Ravens got lucky when they played a quaterbackless Texans team.  If the Texans had Matt Schuab the Ravens would be watching from home this weekend.
  • Not sure if Joe Flacco is the man to ever lead the Ravens to a Super Bowl.
  • Did the Packers look past the Giants?  All the dropped passes and missed tackles are all symptoms of a team that wasn’t focused.
  • You can now officially put Eli Manning into the elite quarterback category.  Not only has he beat 2 of the best teams in NFL history, but he has carried to Giants all season long.
  • The Texans need to pay Arian Foster.  He is one of the NFL’s best running backs.
