With week 5 done in the NFL season, what have we learned so far?

Thing learned the first: Norv Turner really isn’t that great a head coach. Granted they beat the Chicago Bears in week 1, but to lose to the Kansas City Chiefs who still have a question at quarterback is inexcusable.

Thing learned the second: Rex Grossman is bad. True the ole ball coach Steve Spurrier named him Sexy Rexy, but he’s not in Florida no more.

Thing learned the third: Any who says they know what will happen in the NFL is shitting you. Who would have predicted Detroit, Washington and Green Bay would have winning records at this point in the season? Who would have predicted the Cleveland Browns would score 51 points in just one game? Did they even score 51 points all season last year?

Thing learned the fourth: Teams that win the fourth quarter generally tend to win the game. In the 76 games so far there have been 12 ties in the fourth quarter. In the other 64 games, 49 of those teams that won the fourth quarter went on to win the game. Best example was Monday night's game. Dallas outscored Buffalo 12-0 and went on to win the game.
