The Badgers play outside of the Big 10 this week, which means they won’t be systematically dismantled by a more talented foe.
I can afford Groceries!
Koren Robinson has been reinstated, meaning the Packers can run a Four-wide set the likes of which hasn’t been seen in Green Bay since Robert Brooks, Antonio Freeman, Don Bebee, and Andre Rison were on the 1996 roster, which is not to say that the Packers shouldn’t try to sign Corey Dillion, just that Driver, Jennings, Jones, and Robinson sounds less like a Folk-Singing-Group than the 1987 corp of Stanley, Epps, and Scott.
Carolina, Cleveland, Green Bay and San Diego have off this week in the NFL. Who will benefit from it the most? Carolina, who needs another healthy QB that isn’t named Vinny Testeverde and a healthy Dan Morgan? Cleveland, who needs time for Jamal Lewis and Kellen Winslow to be at 100% if they plan to hang with Pittsburgh and Baltimore? Green Bay, who will re-integrate Koren Robinson into the mix before a two game road trip to Denver and Kansas City? Or San Diego, who are back at .500 and teaching new acquisition Chris Chambers the things Norv’s added to the offense since his tenure in Miami?
The NL Champs have been crowned, and now the Rockies will wait at least until Thursday to find out if they will play the Indians or the Red Sox. I said there would be a repeat of game one in game five, and I’ll stand by that. If Boston should somehow do the unthinkable, and make my prediction come true, the Red Sox will need much better showings form Schilling and Dice-K to come away with a series win. In fact they’ll need to play mistake-free defense, get lights-out pitching and hit like Tina burnt their dinner to win. They need to repeat 2004, in a nutshell.
