Dugan’s Deliberations: NFL Week 1 in Review
By: Tyler Dugan
Its week one and I’m losing my blog virginity, so let’s get right into it.
Unfortunately, I was coaching the St. Dominic/St Teresa Bruinhawks to a week 3 win, so I was unable to catch the early part of the 1 o’ clock games. But, I’d like to think I got the basic drift on what all went down. So here are some of the take-aways I got from week 1.
We will start obviously with the Bengals. First things first, Jeremy Hill didn’t fumble, which is good for my health.
Second, I’ve been an Andy Dalton guy from day 1, so I may be slightly biased, but the guy can play and deserves a LOAD of credit for the win. He’s a no doubt top 10 QB and may be rising into the top 7 or so.
A.J. Green is a freak, I rip him a ton, but he was on today, and when A.J. is on he’s the best in the league. He made Darrell Revis look like Keiwan Ratliff. Literally unguardable.
The D hung in, hopefully they can regroup and start to look better. I’m genuinely nervous for the league when King Tez comes back. Josh Shaw was the surprise of the day, had the pick, and a huge 3rd down tackle.
I’m glad he took time off from jumping out of 3 story buildings to save babies. That’s all I got for the Bengals, hopefully they come rolling into Heinz Field next week like Bane did back in 2012.
Other than that, I hate how loud Andrew Luck’s cadence is screamed into the mic, CBS needs to find a way to mute that when the Colts are on the field. Hell of a game to watch though. Stafford was at his peak just slinging it to anyone and everyone. I miss Calvin so damn much, a true GOAT.
All the other games…well, I didn’t really see much, so I wont give my thoughts on those. I did watch the Cowboys/Giants game but I’m sure Skip and Shannon will do enough talking for all of us on that game.
