Week in and week out there are great games to go along with some amazing story lines. Week 7 continued a great trend of great moments during the football week. Feel free to chime in and comment on our selections if you like. Enjoy!
The Carolina Panthers Running Game is extinct- Smash and Dash or whatever you want to call them have not lived up to their hefty contracts this season. The Panthers were a phyiscal team last season, and now they are relying on Cam Newton to do everything. I don’t know if its Deangelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, or coaching, but something is wrong with the Carolina Panthers running game.
Matt Stafford has regressed- Stafford has one motive, and that is to throw to No. 81. I’m not mad at him I would probably do the same thing. Opposing teams know where the ball is going and it is showing in the Lions win column. Stafford had a quarterback rating of 97.2 last season, and now its 78.4. We hear about the decline of Cam Newton, but Stafford’s may be worse.
Terrell Suggs is a Freak of Nature- I know the Ravens got blown out, but Terrell Suggs played out of his mind. I may be exaggerating, but for someone who tore their achilles tendon this past summer he was quite impressive.
Ray Lewis will be missed- It was quite obvious to say that the Ravens will miss Ray Lewis, but after getting whooped 43-13 it should create some concern in Baltimore. Maybe with the return of Suggs he can spark the play of the Defense.
Malcolm Jenkins may have saved the Saints season- Vincent Jackson thought he had a easy walk in touchdown after catching a bomb from Josh Freeman. Malcolm Jenkins put an end to that by hustling from about twenty yards away to tackle Freeman at the three yard line. By saving the touchdown it led to a fourteen point swing that eventually led the Saints to victory.
Alex Smith still has work to do- I am not the biggest Alex Smith fan, but when your favorite team is winning it’s hard to complain. Alex Smith was bailed out by Frank Gore and the stout 49ers Defense once again as he put up pedestrian numbers. Alex has the weapons, but the results are not showing on the field. How long can the 49ers keep winning with Alex playing his best impersonation of Camp Rooney?
Chris Johnson is back- CJ2K ran all over the Buffalo Bills, and even brought out the choppa city juke. Johnson went for 195 yards off 18 carries to go along with two touchdowns. It was a good day for my homie C.J.
