The REAL NFL wrap up: Marty! Marty! Marty!

October 1, 2007

Oh the day of drama we had here in the home of Your Gridiron Goddess. But now, dinner is cooking, football is on my TV and I am here to recap all the NFL action from this weekend. I know, I know, you are so excited you can hardly contain yourselves.

1. First of all, the games I picked on Kevin and Bean’s Morning Show on KROQ 106.7 fm on Friday were as follows:

Green Bay over MN – GB Won

Oakland over Miami – Oakland won

Detroit over Chicago – Detroit won

Seattle over SF – Seattle won

Eagles over Giants – Giants won

Pats over Bengals – Pats won

That’s 5-1 for those keeping count at home!

2. We award the title of Robo-Sack 2007 to: Donovan McNabb. Seriously people, the man looks like a deer caught in the headlights whenever the ball is snapped. 12 sacks in one game? Where is the Eagles offensive line? From what I could see, last night former USC player and current Philly rookie left tackle Winston Justice was a one man show in trying to protect McNabb. And, as we all know, McNabb was not getting any protection as he ended up on his ass 12 separate times.

What is going on Dirty Birds? McNabb is done. He’s running scared of his bionic knee and it is only causing him to play poorly and increase his risk of getting re-injured. Look at 49ers QB Alex Smith, he is currently out, suffering from a separated shoulder incurred when he was sacked in Sunday’s game against the Seahawks.

3. Marty! Marty! Marty! So said the crowd at Qualcomm Stadium on Sunday and I agree. President of the Chargers Dean Spanos and GM A.J. Smith need to get down on their knees and BEG Marty Schottenheimer to come back as Head Coach of the Chargers. Turner is an offensive coordinator. He’s good with quarterbacks. That is where his strength lies, not in head coaching positions.

The Chargers now have more losses 4 weeks into the season than they had all of last season. They sit at the bottom of the AFC West rankings.

Stop the bleeding now Chargers and make it right.

Marty! Marty! Marty!

4. “Brian is our quarterback.” Bears Coach Lovie Smith announcing that Griese will be the Bears starting quarterback on Sunday v. Green Bay.

If Rex Grossman is Sexy Rexy than Brian Griese is…Sleazy Griese? Easy Griese? Threw three interceptions just like the benched Sex Cannon Griese?

Yeah that one seems about right.

On Sunday Griese had 2 TDs, 3 INTs and was sacked 6 times. He was 34 of 52 for 286 yards.  Yeah, that’s the way to keep the Bears tradition of excellence.

Somewhere in Chicago Rex Grossman is scratching his head and wondering exactly what he did wrong.

Marty! Marty! Marty! Oh wait…

5. David Carr’s Mickey Mouse gloves. Dude, they seriously put your credibility in question. They are so SHINY. Maybe their shininess distracted you on Sunday from actually playing some good football? Just a theory. You are smokin’ hot, but lose the gloves, M’Kay? You look like a little girl going to Church on Easter Sunday. Not exactly the image an NFL QB might want to convey?

That’s all for now football fiends!!

CFB wrap up #2: Further thoughts on the Wacky Weekend that was

September 30, 2007

Hello fellow football fiends, my Ny/Day-quil haze has lifted a bit and in thinking about the CARAZY day that Saturday was for the top 25, hell, especially for the top 10, I have a few thoughts:

1. Urban Meyer’s vaunted offense is being exposed as a one-trick show. He relies on athletic QB’s. That seems to be it. Florida has no truly reliable stand out receivers or running backs despite recruiting such blue chip players as Percy Harvin. Shut down Tim Tebow as Auburn’s defense did on Saturday, and the Meyer offense stalls. But look back to Meyer’s days at Utah, it was all about Alex Smith and what he could do and the most talked about running back spoken of in the same breath as Smith/Utah was USC’s Reggie Bush and how he and Smith played on the same High School team in San Diego.

Tebow is a mightily talented athlete. But he cannot carry an entire offense on his shoulders and he should not have to.

2. The only team that can beat USC is USC. How else do you explain 16 penalties for 160 yards, the loss of two key offensive players and a respectable opponent in the vastly improved Washington Huskies and yet they still manage to eke out a win? Now, should USC play like that against Cal, or Oregon or ASU or LSU–would they be able to eke out that win? Maybe, maybe not, but let it be known, Washington did not even come close to outplaying USC last night. What they did was take advantage of the uncharacteristic mistakes USC made.

3. Speaking of USC: they need 2 things right now. A receiver to emerge as the dominant go to guy. Right now Fred Davis, the tight end is Booty’s go to guy. And while Patrick Turner had a better than usual for this season night last night, he still drops too many balls for this Trojan fan’s liking. You can’t do that at this level. Secondly, our defense needs to get to work on creating turnovers like the 2004 and 2005 squads did. Man, those defenses were exciting to watch.

4. LSU is not looking as freakishly dominant as they did in their first few games. They had to battle back from a 3-9 deficit at halftime to post that final 34-9 score that looks like they were in charge the whole time. QB Matt Flynn does seem to be the weakest link thus far, having none of former starting QB JaMarcus Russell’s firepower to date.

5. USC plays Cal at Cal and Oregon at Autzen Stadium. Autzen Stadium scares me.

6. The Florida-Auburn situation creates an interesting SEC possibility. Florida was beaten by Auburn focusing on controlling Tebow. Auburn does not have remotely the kind of strong defense that LSU does. Offensively, LSU is showing some chinks in their armor. Can Auburn beat LSU? Hmmmm. Can Flordia beat LSU? One looks possible, the other one, not so much.

7. Did you notice something in FSU’s win over Bama? When Bowden took slow, plodding, boring, QB Drew Weatherford out and put Xavier Lee in, their offense came to life. Could this signal a new era for the ‘Noles? It SHOULD.

8. Did you notice how Notre Dame managed to find an offense and score a whopping 19 points once Coach Weis took QB Jimmy Clausen OUT and put Evan Sharpley in? Note to Demetrius Jones, maybe you jumped ship a bit quickly?
