Butt Fumble, Part II
Hopefully you saw this, but Geno Smith honorably commemorated Mark Sanchez’s famous butt fumble play by trying to make something happen. He tried to swoop the football around his back, and Karl Klug (what a name) was there to score an easy touchdown. Wrong sport Geno, and congrats on writing your name into the ‘Jets Hall of Shame’. Sure didn’t take you as long as Sanchez.
The Houston Texan Fans
Sure, it’s one thing to be upset about a game. Hell, it’s even another to be down right mad. But after the self-destruction of the Texans Sunday, a fan was photographed setting fire to a Matt Schaub jersey. It’s tough to be a fan of football in Texas, and I’m sorry the Texans bandwagon from the Cowboys felt the need to express themselves accordingly. There’s so much blame to place elsewhere. If you want a hard life, be a Jaguars fan.
The 0-4 Club
Giants, Jaguars (given), Steelers, and Bucs remain winless. The Bucs have serious issues going on right now, and Josh Freeman’s attitude right now may put him out of work for a while. When teams say ‘I wouldn’t touch him with a ten foot pole’ when they were approached with a chance to get him, that says it all. The Jaguars are making me wonder if they are playing so terrible on purpose to get moved. The Steelers had a chance, but were ousted by Matt Cassel and company, and it was encouraging for the Steelers fans to see Le’veon Bell back in action. The Giants are in serious trouble. The only way to salvage their season is to beat the Eagles at home, and should they drop that game, there may be blood.
Baltimore Ravens Play Calling
Let’s get this straight. You get back your All-Pro Running Back Ray Rice, and you run the ball 9 times. 9 times. Really???? Flacco threw it 50 times against the Bills Sunday. He was picked off 5 times on the day. How does that happen?
