As the Chargers relax and recover during the bye week, plenty of great football was played around the NFL. The morning games featured a few decent matchups, but the afternoon games had a bunch of drama. The dream team went into Washington and played defense. While the 49ers left a lasting impression on the motor city.
Plenty of running backs had big days and Raiders lost their quarterback for the remainder of the season.
Packers remain the only undefeated team as the Rams and Colts will have to wait at least another week to earn their first W.
Coach fight! Jim Harbaugh said it was the hand shake, Jim Schwartz didn't want to talk about it. At the end of the day, it was awesome! Schwartz wasn't going to be showed up and ran Harbaugh down in time to give him a good bump before all hell broke loose. This really could have escalated into more (which would have been great), but cooler heads prevailed. Let's just hope these two meet again in the playoffs.
Green Bay Packers - The champs remain undefeated and with a trip to Minnesota followed by a bye week, it appears San Diego will have a chance to send a message and give the Pack their first loss in week nine.
Jimmy Graham - JIMMY! The guy has been playing out of his mind. Through five games, Graham has 32 receptions for 496 yards and has had over 100 yards each of the last four games.
Ahmad Bradshaw - With Jacobs missing a second game Bradshaw took full advantage. With 130 total yards and three touchdowns, Bradshaw helped the Giants bounce back with a victory over the high flying Bills.
Jason Campbell injured and done for the season. Depending on how you look at things, this is great or this is terrible. If you missed the HBR podcast this week, John tried to jinx McFadden into a broken leg. I would consider this close enough. With two days left it will be interesting to see if the Raiders make a move for a quarterback before the trade deadline expires
Bye week. The comments on facebook and twitter are filled with depression and sadness. It appears that the 4-1 start has Chargers fans in an upbeat mood and hungry for more success.
Next five weeks. I believe we can all agree the level of competition the Chargers faced the first five weeks outside of the Patriots was sub-par. The next five weeks are a different story.
Vs Green Back Packers
That's the GBU from my end. Who made your list?
