The Everyday Mailbag- 9/20/11

College football and the NFL are starting to get into full swing! And with that, the Everyday Mailbag is starting to pick up more steam. Here's what the Sports World wants to know!

Q: Is it time to trade Peyton Manning?
-James R., Nashville, TN

A: No. It isn't time to trade Peyton Manning. Besides, who is gonna take an injured QB via trade. He has to prove he's healthy before a trade can even be considered.

Q: What do you think of the Washington Redskins so far this season and Rex Grossman? Real football or real fluke?
-Ryan J., Henning, TN

A: I think the Redskins are doing better than expected. Grossman has impressed me so far. But we will see how good they are when they get into the meat of their schedule.

Q: With a 2-0 start will the Lions make playoffs?
-Bobby C., Sacramento, CA

A: Its looking more and more like it. They still have to play the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears this year but they're playing like a house on fire right now. It all depends on Stafford. If he stays healthy, they just might get in there. I didn't think it would be possible, but it just might not be "wait until next year" in Detroit.

Q: What explanation do you have for the Chiefs losing 48-3 and 41-7?
-Sam B., Highland Park, IL

A: I have no explanation for this poor showing by them. The only thing that I can say is that by Head Coach Todd Haley resting his players all preseason and not getting them work, he has hurt his team. They are all out of rhythm and look like they're stuck in preseason mode still.

Q: What are your thoughts on the Titans game versus the Ravens on Sunday?
-Herman P., LaVergne, TN

A: The run game is still not getting it going, but with Matt Hasselbeck taking advantage of one-on-one matchups in the passing game, it doesn't matter as much. The Titans will need to figure out a way to run against a stacked box eventually, but for right now, the veteran Hasselbeck is picking thru defenses.

Q: What do you thing of Florida's new offense? Pretty impressive huh?
-Kareem H., Nashville, TN

A: I think that its a better offense. More conventional and less gimmicky. And with the speed merchants they have and the mind of Charlie Weis running the offense, they could be dangerous.

Q: ‎​Which starting QB will be the first one to be benched?
-Joey K., Los Angeles, CA
A: I think Seattle's Tavaris Jackson will be the first QB benched in the NFL. He doesn't look very impressive in the first week and then he goes into Pittsburgh and didn't produce anything. I see Charlie Whitehurst warming up real soon in Seattle.

Thanks for all the questions. And remember, if you have sports questions, I have answers!!!

    1) Is it time to trade Peyton Manning?
    No…it’s time to shoot him in the head like a lame horse. Face it, three surgeries on his neck in less than two years combined with his age means his career is over. It is time for the Colts to cut him after this season, since that move would get them out from under that ridiculous contract they signed him to.

    2) What do you think of the Washington Redskins so far this season and Rex Grossman? Real football or real fluke?
    Complete fluke…never forget Mike Shanahan is still the head coach, and he is a walking implosion machine.

    3) With a 2-0 start will the Lions make playoffs?
    Quite possible, but it depends on more than just Stafford. Talk to me in December when this team is going to have to beat two of the following three: the Saints, Chargers, and the Packers.

    4) What explanation do you have for the Chiefs losing 48-3 and 41-7?
    Two words: They stink. Todd Haley is this year’s Josh McDaniels. This team has talent, but they are not getting any legitimate coaching.

    5) What are your thoughts on the Titans game versus the Ravens on Sunday?
    I think it is September and far too early to tell if either of these teams are really any good.

    6) What do you thing of Florida’s new offense? Pretty impressive huh?
    Not as impressive as you might think. Talk to me after Alabama at the Swamp.

    7) Which starting QB will be the first one to be benched?
    Jackson is the obvious choice, and for obvious reasons…But let’s not forget it only takes one bad game to get “Sexy” Rexy Grossman on the list. Donovan McNabb is never far from the list. And there’s always Matt Cassel and Luke McCown. And don’t forget Cam Newton who is tied for the league lead in interceptions with only one TD and no wins to show for all those passing yards…

  2. I don’t know why the Colts would trade Peyton at this point since they just gave him a huge contract. The Chiefs look REALLY bad though after a really nice season last year. Matt Cassel looks lost.
