You know how it works. 15 positive football observations, 7 “not so” positive football observations and one “oh no” moment from outside the world of football.
(As a reminder, we don’t do Baltimore Ravens analysis here. We do PLENTY of that elsewhere. This is about the rest of the world of football.)
15 Positive Observations…
If you’re not aware, the Tigers topped ODU after trailing by 11 points late in the fourth quarter. They recovered an onside kick and then completed the miracle when QB Grant Enders found WR Tom Ryan for a 63 yard TD on 4th and 29.
This season his been crazy for Towson football. I’m more and more surprised they didn’t win in College Park.
2. The Green Bay Packers are so good that even when they’re not very good they win.
Seriously, the defending Super Bowl champs (and last remaining undefeated team) did absolutely NOTHING in the second half. No matter, they had already ensured themselves a blowout victory.
Yes, that WAS AJ Hawk flipping off his own sideline. I don’t get it either.
But it’s not as though I feel any more comfortable about my chances of being right.
I liked Cam Newton’s Deion Sanders dance. I would assume Panthers fans would prefer that he win games. He will.
I’m sure this keeps you up at night. Russell Wilson had the best highlight of the weekend in Wisconsin’s blowout win over Indiana…
Trent Richardson had both the best game of his career and perhaps the best juke of all time in Alabama’s win over Ole Miss…
But I put Kellen Moore at the top of the list a few weeks ago and he hasn’t done anything to make me change my mind. Certainly not in Boise State’s blowout win over Colorado State…
Luck was great again in Stanford’s big win over Washington State, but he might have been upstaged by teammate Ty Montgomery…
Landry Jones should probably not be making his first appearance in my Top 5. Hey, it’s my list jerks. He was really good in Oklahoma’s win over Kansas…
Tannehill threw four TD’s to Ryan Swope alone in Texas A&M’s big win over Baylor Saturday…
In the loss, Bears QB Robert Griffin III…I don’t know how to describe this. I’m just glad Gus Johnson called it…
Elsewhere in the Big 12, Oklahoma State and Texas traded kickoff return TD’s. And otherwise the Cowboys kicked the Longhorns’ asses…
6. The New York Giants got a nice win over the Buffalo Bills. How the hell did they lose to the Seattle Seahawks last week?
It wasn’t a good 4th quarter for Drayton Florence…
But really, they lost to the Seahawks last week. How in the hell is that possible?
7. Attention Tom Brady: We get it. You’re good at quarterbacking.
He came up with a big time throw to Aaron Hernandez to help the New England Patriots beat the Dallas Cowboys…
By law, we’ll all be talking about Tony Romo on Monday instead of anything that happened in the game. Right up until we remember Tim Tebow is playing again next weekend.
