NFL 2011 Predictions - Week 11

Check it out - "All World All Sports"

-Digger's Daily-

Sorry folks. My crystal ball was turned upside down last weekend. Never before in my history of picking winners and losers did I ever experience anything so dreadful. Green Bay, Houston, New England, Pittsburgh and Jacksonville represent 5 correct picks. Utterly embarrassing. Won/loss record took a big hit - now rests at 86-60 (59%).

Big divisional games slated for this coming weekend in NFC East action. Dallas (5-4) travels to Redskins (3-6) territory. Under performing Philadelphia (3-6) battles the surging Giants (6-3). Every game is big from here on in. One slip up can cost a team an entire season.

Question of the day surrounds Houston Texans (7-3). One of football's best teams lost their starting quarterback - Matt Schaub. New QB Matt Leinart needs to take advantage of this bye week to grasp the Texans offense. A few Super Bowl championship teams have won after overcoming key losses at quarterback. Two quickly come to mind - 1972 Miami Dolphins lost Bob Griese and finished 14-0 (plus 3 playoff wins) - in 1990 Jeff Hostetler took over for an injured Phil Simms and guided the New York Giants to a stunning victory over the Buffalo Bills in one of the greatest Super Bowl games ever played.

  1. I was trying to think of a team that lost it QB mid season and went to win the Super Bowl and Jeff Hosteler was the guy i was thinking of but couldn't get his name out so that helped me out doing some research. Keep up the picks bro.

  2. One of the most famous of them all...
    1972 Miami Dolphins perfect season - Bob Griese gets hurt in game 5 - Earl Morrall guides them to 9 consecutive.
    Griese did come back for playoffs.
    Funny thing about Morrall - he started only 3 more games before retiring after '76.
