Hello everyone! Welcome to Week 8 of the 2015 NFL season.
It’s hard to believe we’ve reached the halfway point of the NFL season. That means the landscape is slowing taking shape.
The New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers stayed undefeated. They defeated the New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles, respectively. The Green Bay Packers, Denver Broncos and Cincinnati Bengals enjoyed their undefeated run on their bye week.
However, Week 7 ended with controversy.
During the New York Giants’ victory over the Dallas Cowboys, Dallas’ special teams unit met after giving up a 100-yard touchdown return by Giants WR Dwayne Harris.
Cowboys DE Greg Hardy, visibly upset, yelled at his teammates and got in a shoving match with special teams coach Rich Bisaccia. Dez Bryant also exchanged words with Hardy along the sideline.
Everyone had opinions on the incident, which left many split. In my opinion, this is a problem for the Dallas Cowboys.
Hardy is a great defensive end with passion for the game, but he’s clearly unhinged. Hardy shouldn’t be expected to change his behavior. But he needs to control his passion.
How else can the Cowboys turn around arguably the most controversial palyer in the NFL today?
I went 10-6 in the picks for Week 7, bringing my total to 80-42. See what I got wrong below.
