Frontview Mirror – I Can’t Wait

It is a huge weekend coming up which I would like to dedicate to Jerry Glanville, former head coach of the Atlanta Falcons. It was Glanville that prior to the 1992 season traded Brett Favre to the Green Bay Packers. 5877 completions, 66,808 yards, 476 touchdowns, 3 MVPS, 10 Pro Bowls, 275 consecutive starts, and 1 Super Bowl championship later Favre returns to Green Bay this weekend. I can’t wait!!! My thoughts on that and other items are below.

  • Just like Michael Myers in the movie Halloween returned to a small mid-western town and terrorized it on Halloween night, I see Brett Favre slashing through the Green Bay defense this weekend. With Adrian Peterson and the other offensive weapons having a big weekend, I see Minnesota winning 27-24. Experience matters. Favre has played too many big games in the stadium to be intimidated by the atmosphere and environment.
  • Has anyone noticed that Kyle Orton has a 26-12 record as a starter. With two weeks to prepare, look for Denver to remain unbeaten on the road in Baltimore.
  • The Georgia Bulldogs can beat the Florida Gators. They won’t however. Too much defense but the Dogs keep it respectable. Florida wins 21-10.
  • It is amazing to me that Matt Barkley has beaten Ohio State, California, and Notre Dame on the road as a freshman. Look for him to add the Oregon Ducks to that list.
  • The New Orleans Saints will blow out the Atlanta Falcons in a raucous atmosphere on Monday night. I’m not convinced that the ’76 Steelers could win in that stadium on that night. Drew Brees continues his battle with Peyton Manning for MVP.
  • I love watching the Philadelphia Eagles. They have so many athletes and big play options. I’m just convinced they have waited to unleach Michael Vick against a team like the New York Giants. However, with no running game and not enough protection for Donovan McNabb, look for the Giants to win 31-27 on the road.

Finally, Fireproof is my favorite movie of all time. Saw the following tweet from my good friend Ike Reighard. I can’t wait for this either! – RT @MichaelCatt: check out http://www.thenextsherwoodmovie.com/ we are announcing the title and theme on Sunday night Nov 1 (cont) http://tl.gd/nosf

It should be a great weekend and I didn’t even mention the World Series or the NBA’s opening weekend.
