This week did not disappoint with great games across the board. There were a lot of high and lows during the football week. Take a look at what we learned this week. Some things are new, and some are the obvious. Enjoy!
The San Francisco 49ers are LEGIT- Sorry for the homer pick, but the Niners looks like the class of the NFL. The Defense is superb, and the offense is efficient. Things will only continue to get better as the team will add Brandon Jacobs, Teddy Ginn, and LaMichael James to an already potent offense.
Patience is Virtue- High school teammates Reggie Bush and Alex Smith are making the naysayers be quiet. Bush and Smith were criticized heavily due to their lack of production on the field. Being drafted No.1 (Smith) and No.2 (Bush) respectively people expected superstar results instantly. A change of scenery has helped Bush flourish, and the arrival of Jim Harbaugh has turned Alex Smith to one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the NFL. It looks like the two players are living up to their draft status after all.
C.J. Spiller is here to stay- C.J. Spiller has taken full advantage of Fred Jackson’s injury and will likely remain as the starting running back when Jackson returns. Spiller is leading the NFL with 292 yards, and is averaging over 10 yards per carry which is insane. Since Spiller has become the focal point of the offense opposing defenses will look to stop him. Can he keep up his strong play?
Michael Vick has the clutch gene- Yes Michael Vick turned the ball over quite a bit for the second week in a row, but like in Cleveland when the game was on the line No. 7 delivered. If the Eagles can fix their turnover issues they will be a force to be reckoned with.
The Cleveland Rookies are not that shabby- Brandon Weeden and Trent Richardson flashed their potential against the Bengals. Though they took a lost Richardson and Weeden played at a very high level. This should give Cleveland fans something to be excited about in the future.
Andrew Luck is the real Deal- Andrew Luck had the rookie blues last week, but in his first victory of the season Luck looked great and orchestrated the Colts down the field to lead them to the game winning field goal. Luck may not ever be as good as Manning, but he will be a damn good quarterback.
The Return of the Choppa City Juke- The best touchdown dance ever besides “The Deion” graced our television screens this past Sunday. Baltimore Ravens Wide Receiver Jacoby Jones delivered the dance in perfect fashion. With the Jacksonville Jaguars eliminating touchdown dances, and the uncertainty of how Chris Johnson would come back I was a bit worried that I wouldn’t see it. S/O to Jacoby Jones for handling that for me! lol.
Jay Cutler is still a brat- I feel Cutler’s pain, but you cannot air your teammates out to dry like that. The Quarterback is supposed to be a position that is an extension of the head coach, and his behavior on the sideline was uncalled for.
The Replacement Referees SUCK- No explanation needed.
