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.

A Broken Leg, a QB Change, a Scuffle, and Friendly Fans…Week 6

Once again, yesterday started off much the same as most Sundays during the NFL season do:  mixed with nervous optimism and excitement all at once.  We chose to hang out at Buffalo Wild Wings to take in the action.  We knew there would be a good mix of Skins fans, Eagles fans, Cowboys fans.  But also mixed in the crowd were Giants, Niners, Ravens, and Steelers fans.  The NFL was well represented and it was GREAT.  We love connecting and meeting new fans to share commonality and argue differences.  It was FANtastic!  What more could I ask for, wings, libation and football being the backdrop to a crowded sports bar.  I kept a close eye on the Skins/Eagles, as well as the Giants/Bills game, but the game that intrigued me the most was the Lions/Niners contest.  This was a great back and forth between the two surprise teams.  Of course we know the outcome by now:  the Niners edged the Lions, giving the Detroit team their first loss of the season. But after the game is what everyone can’t stop talking about:  one coach going after the other because of a handshake and a pat on the back?  C’mon Man (yeah, I stole that).  But seriously, are you kidding me.  Here’s my take on it.  One coach was vexed by the loss and the manner in which his team lost and the winning coach was HYPED that his team pull out a win in such a competitive game.  That’s it, case closed.  You got to learn how to stay out your feelings in the NFL, Win or Lose!  I was also happy to see the Bucs rebound from last week’s loss to take out the Saints.  But the most bizarre thing about the game was the coach got injured?  I saw Sean Payton getting carried off the field like he was playing.  I heard of being a player’s coach, but I think he took it a bit too far.  Anyway, we wish Coach Payton a speedy recovery.  Regarding the Cowboys/Pats game, I think the photographic evidence says it all.  

Note to Jason Garrett:  If you are going to have Tony ROmo as your QB, you might as well let him be who he is.  If you don’t trust him, get him off the field.  Mr. Garrett, you should be ashamed of yourself calling a shuffle pass on 3rd down with over two minutes left in the game.  YOU ARE PLAYING AGAINST TOM FREAKIN BRADY!

My View Of Sunday’s San Francisco/ Detroit Game-by Mike Patton

**Mike Patton blogs for “The Everyday Man’s Sports Blog” and is a member of Sports Blog Movement.

The 49ers came into Detroit with most thinking they would lose. Everyone was drinking the silver and blue Kool-Aid and ready to anoint this team. Well, somebody forgot to tell the 49ers. Arguably the most physical football team in the NFL, San Francisco came in and imposed their will on the Lions. Continue reading
