Turkeybowl, Harbowl, Rodgers and Romo

Seasons Greetings everyone!  We hope you each had a great Thanksgiving Day with your family and friends.  Thanksgiving with our family was quite awesome!  We planned with our families to arrive no later than noon to get the festivities started.  While we didn’t have a typical tailgate, we did have a Packers/Lions pre-game set up.

I actually thought the Lions had a huge chance to win the game, and it started out pretty even.  However, the Lions loss their momentum, and their cool, and ultimately the game.  At least it was a good game for at least one half. 

 At halftime we had our version of a Turkey Bowl at the Morris house.  This was a competitive matchup between me and J’s father against J’s brother in law and her two young nephews, aged 4 and 6.  These little “ankle biters” were juking, and zig zagging, and head faking, and talking trash.  It was truly a sight to see.  The oldest one, AJ, had his own little touchdown dance.  It was a lot of fun!  I’m already looking forward to next year’s rematch.

Stories of QBs and RBs..Week 9

Oddly enough, Peyton Manning is not the Manning that boldly faces Tom Brady and pulls out a huge W…it’s Eli.  I’ve been the first to criticize Eli in the past (heck, just this summer).  I have to admit he’s playing better than he ever has before.  If someone told me a QB in that game would come back with a game winning drive, I (like the rest of you) would have assumed that QB would be Tom Brady.  Eli was great yesterday.  Additionally, Tom Coughlin and that Giants DEF simply have Tom Brady’s number.  Speaking of DEF, it didn’t hurt Eli was going against the worst Defense in the league.  Who thought one could ever write that about a Bill Belichik Defense?

I cannot tell you the emotional rollercoaster that Philip Rivers put me through yesterday.  I made a prediction earlier in the day that said Green Bay would get its first loss due to the hot hand of Rivers, resulting in a breakout performance.  It started off pretty well too.  He quickly hooked up with Vincent Jackson for a quick score, and things were looking great.  But then Rivers happened again!  He threw, not one, BUT two Pick 6s.  I hadn’t seen anything like since the QB from my favorite team did it against the Lions, earlier this season.  I yelled and screamed and vowed that this guy would never see my Fantasy lineups again.  But things took a turn that I’ve been waiting for all season.  He threw another TD, and another, and ANOTHER, totaling 4 TDs along with 385 yards.  He did throw another pick to make it league leading 14 for the year, but I got 35 points from him yesterday.  I AM NOT MAD AT THAT!
