Single-A (2/11)



  1. Followed him at Alabama. Drafted him last year on my FF team. This year had to draft him in the 5th round. Hoping from a big year and if so next year he will go in the first 3 rounds I think.
  2. Unbelievable College Player. He's got to get his arm and accuracy better for the NFL. Running won't last long, ask RG3.
  3. Drafted him and he is truly a talent. Good game last week though he could have had another TD and a couple more catches but a good hit from the D took that away. Like the talent and with OBJ getting a lot of attention, Engram should have a good year. My only thing is that offensive line giving Manning time to throw.
  4. We start with last Thursday’s contest between the Texans visiting the Jungle to battle the Baby Pumas of Cincinnati. If any of you survived watching the entire game without changing the channel to watch re-runs of Friends or Everybody Loves Raymond then I congratulate you. In fact give yourself a pat on the back for watching maybe the worst game from the NFL this year. Houston QB Watson stole the show with his one run for a Touchdown and that's it for your highlights. Other than that the only other play that was worth noting was the last play of the game when the Circus showed up. Let me recap that play: Dalton to Green, back to Dalton, Dalton to Bernard, Bernard bobbles catch and runs for about 15 yards before he throws it back to Dalton who runs for about 10 yards then Dalton passes back to the middle of the field to his Center……who is pancaked! And flattened by J.J. Watt!! Ball Game over! Dalton looked disgusting as his QB play left the entire Bengals Stadium wondering if there was any hope for this team at all this year. Dalton’s best passes of the night came on that final circus showcase in the last few seconds of the game. Then Dalton left his poor Center out to dry and get walloped by Watt. That’s gonna take a few extra streak dinners to get that Center back on your good side Dalton. After the game Dre Kirkpatrick was asked about the game and how his team performed. In six simple letters Dre gave his answer, “We Suck”. Bam, there it is. That sums it all up, thanks Dre. No need for overuse of words or a lengthy explanation. Dre nailed it with two words, “We Suck”. End of interview. Through the first two games the Bengals have not scored a Touchdown which hasn’t happened in the NFL since 1939. Way to go Baby Pumas. The JETS now have competition for the worst team in the NFL. JETS owner after the game must have been sweating that his tanking of the Season may now have some real competition with the Bengals secretly tanking themselves without knowing it. Let’s hope this Thursday night’s game between the Rams and Niners gives us a little bit of hope that the NFL actually does care and want to make Thursday Night Football revelant again. Ravens took care of the Browns. Ravens D once again coming through huge with four interceptions and a forced fumble. Giving yet another reason for Cleveland fans to just shrug in dispair. Your football team sucks, James is probably leaving Cleveland next year for Hollywood but hey at least the Indians look solid this year. Let’s go to New Orleans where the Patriots got back to Super Bowl form. TB12 was near perfect in the first quarter throwing for 3 TD’s which was the first time in his career he had thrown 3 Touchdowns in the first quarter. 36-20 New England spanks the now 0-2 Saints. What’s wrong with the Saints? The Saints have no defense at all and an offensive line that is not giving Drew anytime. Brees needs a strong game this week or they might be done for the Season. Carson Palmer and that Cardinals Defense is terrible. Truly Charles Barkley terrrrrribbbble. Cardinals Defense helping pull out the victory against the Luckless Colts 16-13. Luckless Colts are a complete disaster this year and they only lost by 3. Cardinals are bad and missing Johnson already. Bears paid $45 million dollars for Glennon which has picked up where Cutler left off last year. Bears are set to pay Glennon $5 mil a pick which means his contract should end about week 4 if his turnover trend continues. The Chargers finally got to play a game in front of their home crowd, well kinda their home crowd. The game which game down to last second FG to win it, was actually played at the Stubhub Center. For those that don’t know, the Stubhub Center is home of the LA Galaxy. Estimated to seat about 27,000-30,000 people, the Chargers couldn’t even get that sold out. Day before on Saturday, USC hosted Texas in a thriller at the L.A. Collisium. 103,000 fans showed up for that contest. Even the L.A. mayor was quoted as saying, “LA didn’t need 2 teams.” When the new Los Angeles stadium is built it will be shared by the Chargers and the Rams. Jim Rome put it best…The battle of Los Angeles will not be won by either Chargers or Rams. The battle for LA between the Chargers and Rams will always lose to the Beach. The Beach always wins. Unless your USC and UCLA, Los Angeles doesn't care about Football. But let's all go the Beach. Beach always wins. Sold out crowd once again at the beach. The New York Football Giants are bad. Bengals bad. Giants lost to the blazing hot Lions 24-10. At least Manning finally threw a TD. Manning got sacked so many times that at one point he took a sack without anyone actually touching him. The Phantom sack 1, Eli zero! Coach McAdoo is considering giving up the offensive play calling. Please do, your offense sucks. To the owners I say this: Mr. Tisch and Mr. Mara, nothing can really save your season but if anything or anyone can I would advise you this. When the impossible needs possible you have only one choice. Gotta send in the Snake, Snake Plissken. Nothing more to say. Dirty Birds out played and outscored the Packers by a total of 34-23. Aaron Rodgers looks a little sluggish out there. Not mention the Packers are losing players to injury faster than it takes Manning to get sacked. Atlanta looking so far like the clear cut team to make it back to the NFC Championship game and possibly the Super Bowl. Mark my words, if Atlanta makes it back to the Super Bowl, this time they win it. 49ers and Seahawks battled for the worst game of the week behind the Texans and Bengals game. Seattle’s offensive line needs help. Where has Jimmy Graham and the WR's go? Russell Wilson has no time, tons of pressure in his face, and half the time is running for his life. To say something positive about the Niners, which is not much, I say this....49ers Defense played well in this game. Good job Defense. If offense could have scored that game would have ended with the San Francisco/Santa Clara/ Northern California 49ers. Next the Raiders blew out the J.E.T.S. T.A.N.K. in a 45-20 blowout. It got so bad that Lynch in the 2nd half gave the fans a better show that what the JETS put out there in the field. Marshawn’s dance was more exciting than the entire season so far of the JETS. And the JETS I think really tried in this game. Not sure why you have traded and gotten rid of all your good players to TANK. But the JETS say they are not tanking. New York fans between the JETS and Giants this year….I’m sorry. That sucks. Titans ran all over the Jaguars as the offense started a little slow but got it together in the second half of the game. For the Jaguars, Fournette looks good this year. Defense of the Jaguars doesn’t look that bad. But overall the Jaguar fans are frustrated and saddened by the fact that their team needs help, maybe Plissken can help. Send him in boys! The Broncos spanked the Cowboys so hard that they made Elliott quit on the field. Rather than helping chase down the defender that intercepted Dak’s pass, Zeke put his hands on his hips and watched the run back, twice! When asked later in the locker room about the punch the Broncos D put on Zeke, Zeke said, “are you kidding me, that wasn’t a punch, have you seen the hit I laid on my last Friday night’s date. Now that’s a hit.” For the first time Zeke got destroyed and shut out, something that probably hasn’t happened to him since he was 5 years old. Denver made Dak put the game in his hands threw the air and it paid off great for the No-Fly-Zone, intercepting Dak at the end of the game for a 103 yard interception return for a TD! In another non-thriller for the yawn/I’m bored books, The Panthers beat the Bills 9-3. Even baseball fans were bored by the scoring in this football game. Four Field Goals in the game. Newton looks like maybe he came back to soon. McCaffrey though showing flashes of his talents and skills has yet to really have a break out game. This week Panthers play against the Defensive-less Saints. Get rid for week 3 which starts today with the Rams and Niners. Good luck sports fans hopefully this isn't like last Thursday. With that we end The Week That Was Week 2. Don't forget this week we also have our first London game of the year with the Ravens and Jaguars making a 6:30 am Pacific Start Time. Good luck for Week 3 and see you next week for the recap.
  5. Welcome back Football Fans and those that can read. This is THE WEEK THAT WAS starring week 1 of the NFL 2017 Football Season. First we go to Houston where J.J. Watt lead a fundraiser raising over $22 million dollars to help with the recovery left behind from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. For the introductions of the Houston against Jacksonville game Watt came out of the tunnel with high energy waving the Texas State Flag. Everyone was fired up. Texan Players were ready to play this game for the city of Houston. The fans were pumped up as the Houston Players were ready to take the field. Prepared to win and win big! Then the game started, reality set in and by halftime Houston fans were devastated yet once again as the Jaguars mauled the Texans to a 29-7 onslaught. Sorry Tom Savage but you are not the answer for Brock who was not the answer for the last nine QB’s who have failed Houston Fans under the Bill O’Brien regime.Next we go to the defending champs where the Hunt was on. The Patriots were abused by a Rookie Running Back that set records and shattered the hearts of the Boston faithful. Tight End Rob Gronkowski looked liked he was still hungover from this summer’s, Gronk long spring break. Alex Smith played liked the Tom Brady of last year and TB12 played like the Scott Tolzien of this year. On that note, congratulations to Los Angeles Rams on the win to start the 2017 NFL Season against the Luckless Colts. Goff and the offense were clicking but it was the Rams defense that stole the show. Two pick sixes for poor Scott Tolzien who may never start another game in the NFL until there is a player’s strike and then maybe not even then. *Side Note - approximately was quoted as a 48,000 attendance out of a 93,000 capacity stadium. Even Colts punter McAfee tweeted a photo just as they were starting the game of a half-filled stadium with the caption, “…ain’t nobody there.” * The Oakland Raiders visited the Titans of Tennessee with the Raiders pulling out the impressive victory. Beast Mode took advantage of his opportunities for 92 total yards on the day. The Raiders offense was clicking but it was the Titans offense making the Raiders Defense look better than they were. Mariota and the offense looked a little winded, unsettled, and unsure of their offensive play calling. David Johnson suffers a horrible broken wrist in a loss for Arizona that made Carson Palmer look more like old man Arnold Palmer. Grab a desk Carson or start eating like Gilsele’s Tom Tom because it looks like father time is at your door. The bad news from the game is looks like DJ should be out until December hopeful to be back for Christmas but even more hopeful if that offense can survive without him and make it to the playoffs. Arizona’s defensive players held their breath when Johnson went down as the Playoff hopes for Arizona fall heavily on Peterson, Mathieu and that Defense. If anyone got a chance to watch that “Tanking for the Season so we can draft USC’s Sam Darnold or Wyoming’s Josh Allen or UCLA’s John Rosen” Jets against the Bills game, I’m sorry.Terribly sorry for your pain. The Jets had an end zone interception and plenty of green real estate to return the football for a Touchdown. With blockers ahead of Burris, he looked liked he was going the distance for the “Tanking of the Season so we can draft USC’s Sam Darnold or Wyoming’s Josh Allen or UCLA’s John Rosen” Jets. The Jets looked like they may actually win this game. Thank goodness Burris’s teammate Maye realized what was happening and tackled his own player before Burris could make the mistake of actually returning an interception for a Touchdown. (In Maye’s defense though he was actually pushed into Burris from a Bill’s player. Mark Sanchez sits in relief tonight as maybe this folly of a play will keep New York occupied from remembering the famous butt fumble). McCoy looked healthy, fast, and flashy though. Offensive line issues were a problem for several teams in week 1 including the New York Football Giants. The Giants were man handled by Jerry’s Team 19-3. OBJ was out for Week 1 and it showed. Jerry’s Team’s Defensive Backs smothered the WR’s and TE’s. Leading rusher for the Giants was Perkins at an embarrassing 16 yards. *Side Note - Supposedly OBJ had a dance off the Thursday before with Russell Westbrook while Wyclef Jean was on stage performing. Look it up if you want. The Panthers spanked the offensive-less 49ers 23-3. 49ers talented Rookie Linebacker Reuben Foster suffered a high ankle sprain of which there is no time table for him to return at this point. Vikings Defense showed up to cause problems for Brees and the Saints as Sam Bradford had the game of his Vikings Career throwing for 346 yards and 3 Touchdowns, 2 of those going to Sophomore phenom Wide Receiver Stephon Diggs. The Ravens shut out the Bengals as Red Rifle Dalton looked more like a water-pistol producing an offensive performance that made even Pop Warner teams shaking their heads at such an atrocious performance. Cleveland almost pulled off an upset but ultimately lost to the Steelers as Antonio Brown goes off with 11 receptions for 182 yards. J.J. Watt’s younger brother T.J. had an impressive first game of his NFL Career with 2 sacks, 1 interception, and 5 solo tackles. Chicago almost defeated the NFC Conference Champion Falcons but Chicago forgot how to cover Wide Receivers and Tight Ends as Hooper was left all by himself without a Defensive Player no where near him. Ryan for Hooper 88-Yard TD Reception. But it came down to the last Offensive possession for da Bears. In a missed opportunity with the ball on the Falcons 5-Yard line, $45 million dollar QB, Glennon failed on the first three passing downs and then was sacked on 4th down by Reed. Ball game over. Not a redemption for the Falcons after blowing that lead in the 2nd half in the Super Bowl, but they will take a win to the start the 2017 Season. Then there’s the Eagles Defense stepping up against the Washington Redskins. In a 30-17 Eagles win it was Sophomore QB Wentz that won the battle over the “You Like That!” QB of Washington. Fat Rob looked well….bad. Kelley rushed 10 times for 30 yards. Even the Giants think the Redskins backfield is a mess. Lastly the Los Angeles Chargers were at the Denver Broncos. Both Rivers and Simeon had multiple passing Touchdowns but it would all come down to a game tying Field Goal with time running out. Chargers with five seconds to go in regulation and down 24-21 line up for the 44-Yard Field Goal attempt. Football is hiked, ball in the holder’s hands, ball is down, Koo makes contact, ball in the air…..and it’s blocked! Shelby Harris blocks the Field Goal. Broncos win. Los Angeles Chargers lose. Welcome to LA officially where no one cares about Football anymore. Maybe the Chargers could use a motivational speech from self proclaimed Awesome Person, LaVar Ball. One final thing is if anyone watched the Raiders vs Titans game you may have heard a familiar voice. Though this time the retired QB wasn’t behind the podium but behind the microphone. Tomo aka Tony Romo called the game with seasoned broadcaster/analyst Jim Vance. While Tomo was sharp is his debut behind the booth it was his predictions before the snap that made social media headlines. Have fun look it up and give it a listen to. With Week 1 in the books we look forward to Week 2 as we conclude with the famous words from Edward Murrow, “Goodnight and Goodluck”.
