HE SAID She Said FOOTBALL Week 2
Burgers on the grill is how we kicked off Week 2 of NFL games on a crisp early fall day in Washington, DC. Kudos to the NFL network and ESPN for starting game day coverage even earlier this year. It’s fantastic! I fully expected my Redskins to go 2-0 heading into Dallas and they did not disappoint…well sort of. They should have blown OUT the Cards but due to mistakes, they let them hang around the whole game. Still..a win is a win and now WE WANT DALLAS!
I continue to be impressed with Cam Newton! He certainly has that star quality! He still needs to learn personnel on the field though…Charles Woodson is pretty good. I think he must have forgotten.
As a Cowboy fan coming off another loss at the mistake prone hands of Tony Romo, it wasn’t a good week for me. I heard it from everybody and everywhere: people on Twitter, Facebook, co-workers, employees, customers!! I even see my boss’s boss and the first thing he says to me was, “Hey Daryle, HOW BOUT DEM COWBOYS!”. Then he sends me a work related email using the tagline, HTTR. Since I wear my Cowboy colors proudly, I take it, but I also give it. I even got into a friendly twitter battle yesterday with a fellow blogger @Sports_R_Me_MP3, who loves his Niners, who happened to be playing my ‘Boys. Now before I get to the game, I ripped Romo last week for giving away another game. I wiped my hands of the QB. But yesterday, after being knocked out of the game with fractured ribs, Romo toughed it out to lead the ‘Boys back in an OT victory, after being down going into the 4th quarter. Romo is in no way off my Hit List, but he showed me and a lot of fans what he is actually capable of doing.
Week 2 Things to Note:
Arian Foster will be a bust this year
The Lions are the TRUTH
Roddy White owes me ANOTHER apology
Adrian Peterson is STILL the Man
Ryan Fitzpatrick is a GOOD QB
(Are the Bills for real?)
