HE SAID She Said FOOTBALL Week 3
Week 3 is THE week for HE SAID She Said FOOTBALL! The only thing…our game (Redskins vs Cowboys) is Monday night! As a result, we stayed in and ordered pizza. There were 2 great games on Fox that we got to watch (along with Stattracker for the HSSS Fantasy Football League).
1pm: An anticipated show down of our division rivals: The Eagles vs The Giants. I fully expected the GMEN to lose, but hoped they would win. Well WIN they did! As banged up as the Giants are, they came to play, especially that Victor Cruz! He had some BIG TIME plays yesterday that made the Eagles Defense look as overrated as I thought they would be. HA! Cruz danced all through the end zone. A great replacement for Manningham. On another note, I do not think Michael Vick was ready to play. He looked off all day and now to add another injury-his hand is broken. Andy Reid should have prepped Kafka all week to ensure he was ready…for that terrible performance, Andy Reid could have gotten Vince Young’s impersonator to come in and play….
In the 4 o’clock hour, the game of the day was set up to be the Packers v Da Bears. It had everything you wanted going into a game: rematch of a controversial NFC Championship game and division rivals with a tradition of a long-lasting dislike for one another. It was a decent enough game with big plays in both offense and defense. It was a game that showcased what everyone has been waiting for ever since last year: the emergence of TE Jermichael Finley. Finley didn’t disappoint either. He came through for the Pack with 7 catches for 85 yards and 3 TDs. But as good as that game was, I want to talk about the Ravens v Rams game. It really wasn’t a good game at all, BUT, I have to talk about how the Ravens offense performed. They compiled 553 total yards! Let me say that again. The Ravens offense had 553 yards. When was the last time that happened? I remember a time when the Ravens didn’t have 553 total yards of offense in a season let alone one game. Okay, that might be an exaggeration, but you get what I’m saying. The game also was a breakout for rookie receiver Torrey Smith out of Maryland, who amazed us all with 5 receptions, 152 yards and 3 TDs. Good to see the youngster do his thing. Though it wasn’t the best week of football (yet again, you know what game I wanna see this week), but it was nice to see some great individual performances.
Week 3 Things to Note:
Darren McFadden is a legit premier RB
I am officially over the Atlanta Falcon offense
Calvin Johnson may be the BEST receiver
Sadly, I think Ocho will not make a difference in NE (I hope I’m wrong)
Shonn Greene is useless, give the ball to LT
Carlos Rogers actually got a pick? Like for real?
Phillip Rivers is on my HIT LIST
Is Chris Johnson still holding out?
Pittsburgh Steelers-you had NO business allowing the Colts to make that a game!
FAN QUOTE OF THE WEEK! Where we feature at least one tweet fom one of our followers on Twitter. This week’s tweet comes from a very happy Niners fan: @bootydrew who watched other teams win besides his Niner’s. @bootydrew “Fun to watch Buffalo knock off the Patriots…good game…”
