2011 NFL Week 2 Recap

Well another great week of football action has gone by and let me tell you it did not disappoint. On Sunday, a large debate broke out on my Facebook page about one Cam Newton. I have said and will say it again, I am very impressed with him. He put up 432 yards against the defending Super Bowl Champions, the Green Bay Packers so you can’t say he played against a mediocre defense. The things that shocked me this week were Tennessee’s upset of Baltimore, and the guts of Tony Romo playing severely hurt in the game against San Fransisco.

Look at all the 2-0 teams right now:

New England Patriots
Buffalo Bills

Detroit Lions
New York Jets

Green Bay Packers
Washington Redskins

The only team I am really surprised by on the list is Buffalo because you didn’t hear much about them in the off-season but then again they played Kansas City and Oakland. The Lions are a defensive monster that’s going to be a challenge for anyone. Washington is not a surprise either. They made some great moves in the off-season by picking up some offensive pieces and getting rid of their distractions.

If you’re a Packers fan I would be a little bit worried about the amount of offensive yards and points they have given up. They were nail biters the first two weeks but they do have some tough games this year. I don’t think the Patriots and Jets have a lot to worry about but it will be interesting to what happens when they play each other this year.

Teams that are 0-2 right now:

Miami Dolphins
Minnesota Vikings
Carolina Panthers
Kansas City Chiefs
St. Louis Rams
Seattle Seahawks
Indianapolis Colts

The teams I see improvement from this year will be the Rams, Dolphins, and Panthers. All three teams have the potential and teams to have winning records. Carolina is going to give a lot of top notch teams problems this year.  I am going back to Cam Newton again. If you’re still questioning him, check his stats out the first two weeks because they speak for themselves. People need to forget about what happen in College and focus on what he’s doing now and what he’s doing now is great. That’s all for my thoughts on week 2. Hopefully next week I can report a Carolina Panther win so people will start giving Cam Newton just a little bit of credit.
