First I want to start off by saying Jerry Jones needs to jump on that private jet to Mississippi and beg Bret Farve to come out of retirement, because Tony Romo needs to be fired ASAP or benched. The Lions provided further proof they’re a legitimate contender by turning a 24-point, third-quarter deficit into a 34-30 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
The San Francisco 49ers made the Philadelphia Eagles look stupid, they came back from a 20-point deficit to win 24-23.
Also the Baltimore Raven’s had three scores on defense that set a franchise record thanks to Mark Sanchez in Baltimore’s 34-17 victory Sunday night.
The Tampa Bay Buc’s also had to fight for everything Monday night against the 24-17 win against the Colts.
Also some of you may have noticed that the Opening to Monday Night Football was different that is because Hank Williams Jr.’s classic intro song for “Monday Night Football” — with its signature line “Are you ready for some football?” was pulled from the Buc’s vs. Colts game on ESPN after Williams used an analogy to Adolf Hitler in discussing President Obama.
In an interview on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” Williams compared the summer golf summit between Obama and House Speaker John Boehner as “one of the biggest political mistakes ever,”"It would be like Hitler playing golf with [Israeli leader] Benjamin Netanyahu,” Williams said. “In the shape this country’s in?”
This Sunday football was crazy the Patriots loss 31-34 to the Bills. The Bills came back from a 21-point deficit, intercepting Tom Brady four times to maintain their undefeated start. Detroit sealed its first 3-0 start since 1980 after erasing a 20-point halftime deficit to beat Minnesota 26-23 on Jason Hanson’s overtime field goal.
Oakland Raiders McFadden rushed for 171 yards and two touchdowns in the Oakland Raiders 34-24 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday. The team to keep your eye on this year is the Detroit Lions.
Matthew Stafford threw two touchdown passes in the second half to help Detroit get to overtime, and Jason Hanson kicked a 32-yard field goal to finish off a 26-23 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.
The Cowboys Dan Bailey kicked six field goals, including a 40 yard with 1:52 left, and linebacker Anthony Spencer forced a fumble that teammate Sean Lee recovered with 28 seconds left, giving the Cowboys an 18-16 victory over the Washington Redskins on Monday night.
This week of the NFL was full of excitement. This season is turning out to be all about the QB’s. Tony Romo silenced the critics with his play by coming back into the game with a broken rib to beat the 49ers in overtime.
Micheal Vick was knocked out the game with a concussion in a loss to Matt Ryan and his former team Atlanta Falcons. Tom Brady threw for 423 yards Sunday, just six days after setting a single-game team record of 517 in week 1, Tom led the New England Patriots to a 35-21 win over the San Diego Chargers.
Archie Manning told ESPNNewYork.com’s that his son Peyton is feeling “better” after his neck surgery but he’s not sure if the quarterback will be able to play for the Indianapolis Colts this season. Also Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher played this week as well even though his mother passed away a few days ago.
Funny how I semi-defended this guy a week ago only for him to get tested once more on national TV. Bosh, for whatever reason, had a pow wow with shock analyst Skip Bayless on ESPN’s First Take: Bayless’s home turf. Bosh isn’t much of a fighter so you have to wonder why he bothered to step into such a lions den. Anyway, Chris had time to defend himself against the emasculating “Bosh Spice” nickname Skip christened him with last season. Bosh took the high road, kept it classy and asked Skip to stop using the term. You already know Bayless wouldn’t have that. So he unsurprisingly bluntly stated his reasons behind using the title despite saying he “respects” Chris’s family name.
Skip’s usually a drama king and a jerk but he made a good point in his argument. Bosh had plenty of chances throughout the year to prove himself on the NBA’s most polarizing team. However he flat out underplayed for long stretches and couldn’t act brand new when the jokes piled on. Then, when Bosh played well late in the post season, people got really quiet: Skip included.
Seeing Bosh’s high and low points shows you have to take the good with the bad and in life. You can ignore the negativity or, as Chris Bosh said, use it as motivation to show and prove. Respect is earned when you perform well. Therefore, it’s surprising to see fans slowly turn around after Bosh’s play in the Finals.
At the same time that still doesn’t change the fact that Skip tried to punk out Chris to his face. I mean he admitted to calling him a woman with no remorse and it’s up to Bosh to shut him up. I’m confused as to why Bosh would think Skip Bayless seemed capable of being more thoughtful. The guy makes a living off of hiking on millionaire athletes after all. At the very least, Chris didn’t play into Skip’s usual trap involving shouting matches and name calling.
