Aight football fans this week was filled with quaterback news. I know this is not NFL news but it was big news to the football community. On Friday 17 year old Reggie Garrett the star quarterback from West Orange Stark High School in Texas died after throwing his second touchdown pass with time left in the game’s second quarter. Garrett collapsed on the side line, and was loaded into an ambulance as the game continued. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital around 9:30 p.m. His family said he had a history of seizures.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Kenny McKinley was found dead in his home Monday night. So lets keep McKinley and Garrett’s family, friends and teammates in our prayers.
“Everyone with the Broncos is shocked and saddened by the loss of Kenny McKinley…. He was part of the Broncos’ family and will be greatly missed by our organization. My most heartfelt condolences go out to Kenny’s family and friends.” Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen
Now with the NFL news my Cowboys lost to the Bears so I’m sick about being 0-2. I would also like to thank the Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain for showing the world how the game should be played.
Micheal Vick had his first start since 2006. Vick defeated the Detroit Lions. Vick had 284 passing yards, two touchdowns and 37 rushing yards. All I can say is Vick should be starting but Eagles coach Andy Reid said Kevin Kolb will be the starting quarterback at Jacksonville on Sunday.
“I came into this season and this year as the backup and that’s been my mindset…. I’ve been working hard to be reliable whenever I’m needed. That’s the way it is, and the way it’s gonna be throughout the season.” Micheal Vick
Shout out to the Pittsburgh Stellers who are playing like their starting quaterback Ben Roethlisberger isn’t out for sexual misconduct. The Steelers quarterback will be back on Oct. 17 vs. Cleveland. The Steelers play Tampa Bay and Baltimore before Roethlisberger suspension is lifted. The Pittsburgh Steelers brought back Byron Leftwich on Monday Leftwich, was released prior to Week 2.
During the Manning Bowl last night there Payton’s Colts made Eli’s Giants look like the little Giants only in this movie the Giants don’t come out the victor. The Colts beat the Giants so bad that running back Brandon Jacobs “unintentionally” threw his helmet into the stands during the third quarter of New York’s 38-14 loss to Eli’s big brother. Giants coach Tom Coughlin was heated and benched is star running back. I hope Jacobs has his check book because he is getting fined. Word is that Jacobs is seeking a trade.
“I was frustrated and went to throw it down on the ground, and it got caught on my finger and went into (the stands),” he said. “I apologize for that. It was frustration on my part.” Brandon Jacobs
“From what I understand, he lost his poise and did something he shouldn’t have done, and if someone was hurt, then we would all feel bad about that…” Tom Coughlin
