I guess I don't have to worry about any Noles reading my blog and getting upset with me.
Don't think he's a scrub by any means, but I'm starting to think that Alan Faneca has lost it a little bit. He got beat a couple of times yesterday by guys who shouldn't be beating an All-Pro.
I think in Brian Cushing, the Texans might have found themselves a keeper. 2 forced fumbles, an interception. In just a handful of games in the NFL, he has already shown that he can do anything; rush the passer, tail tight ends and running backs, stop the run, pursue. And the boy can hit. I think he might be defensive rookie of the year. He's got my vote.
When all is said and done, the most important move this entire season, might be the Phillies getting Cliff Lee. He single-handedly saved there season and could be the reason they get a second championship.
The Jets are trying out small school phenom Danny Woodhead out at wide receiver. His small stature and his quicks (seen here) make him perfect for the slot. I think he could be a baby Wes Welker is given the reps.
I think Tim Hudson and the Braves should agree on to a deal. Hudson, after taking a little while to settle in to the NL, became a great addition to the staff, with ERA+ of 128 and 134 in 2007 and 2008. With Hudson resigned, the Braves could use him to act solidify the staff, as well as act as a mentor to Hanson, Jurrjens, and any other young pitchers they have coming up.
And the firesale for the Titans begins...wait for it....now. Kevin Mawae, Keith Bullock and anybody short of Michael Roos, David Stewart, Chris Johnson and maybe a couple of others are going cheap!!! Everything must go! Including maybe, Vince Young.
Don't know about people outside of New York, but the 5-hour plus Yankee-Angel game was awesome sports watching. Seems like there were people on base every inning and the pitchers were trying to pitch out of jams. Great stuff.
I'd love to give the AAPTBNL Man of the week to both DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart for tee-ing off on the Bucs so-called defense to the tune of 252 yards. They both had TD runs of over 20 yards and kept Jake Delhomme from doing any self-inflicted damage. But you have to give it to Drew Brees for absolutely shredding one of the best defenses in the NFL today. Brees put on a clinic; 4 TD passes to 4 different receivers. Also, a tip of the hat to his offensive line, who gave up only 1 sack to the vaunted Giant d-line. Good work.
And finally, hate to admit, the first thing I thought of when I read this was Happy Gilmore.
