    Colt D Steps Up Again
    Drc showed once again why the Colts spent the money to bring him in. After Cox takes a handoff for 54yds and a touchdown Drc took a Brady pass 63yds to the house for his 2nd pick of the year. The defense would get a stop and Horstman would hit rookie TE Whitney for a 50yd td pass making it 21-0. Colts would add a 31yd fg from Lloyd to end the 1st quarter 24-0. Colts would get stuck in the second quarter an give up 10 points to take a 24-10 lead into halftime. 3rd quarter Pats and Colts would swap fgs with Lloyd kicking a 52yd to take score 27-13 going into the 4th quarter. Lloyd would kick a 49yd fg and Whitney would grab his 2nd td of the game from 10yds out. Pats would add a 33yd fg with 9 seconds left in game.
    Final Score Colts 37 Pats 16

    Giants Rally, Beat Bears in Thriller
    The Giants Banded Together in the End to Move to 2-0
    24 - 20
    [​IMG]
    The New York Giants needed to muster up some momentum at the start of the season to carry it through the remainder of their schedule. To do so, beating Chicago was a must. New York would tack on 3 points to get the scoring started in a very defensive first half. Chicago would add 2 field goals of their own in the 2nd quarter and the teams went to the locker rooms with a 6-3 score in favor of Chicago. In the second half, the offenses finally found rhythm. Chicago QB Jay Cutler found Bennett on a 54 yard TD pass as CB Prince Amukamara missed his play, allowing Bennett to take it home with ease. The Giants did not take long to respond and in three plays Rookie QB Boals found WR Santonio Holmes from 20 yards out to keep the game within one score. Again, Chicago drove the field and Rookie HB Tercel Watts would punch it in from 1 yard out, giving Chicago a 20-10 lead going to the 4th quarter.​
    In the 4th, Big Blue knew they had some work to do on both sides of the ball. The offense did their part as they drove down the field and pulled within 3 on a 1 yard pound by HB Corey Mays with just over 3 minutes left. The defense took the field looking for a stop and on the first play of the drive, LB Chris Gocong came through the line untouched and laid the lumber to HB Forte, forcing a fumble. Unfortunately for New York, Chicago would recover. Unfortunately for Chicago, they would be flagged for holding and were given a 1st and 20 from their own 12. With 20 yards to go for the first down, Chicago needed big chunks to get the first down and put the game out of reach. After a successful pass completion on first down to make it 2nd and 12, the Giants defense forced an incomplete pass, giving Chicago a 3rd and 12. On the next play, karma would bite the Bears in the ass as former Chicago Bear Chris Conte would pick off a poorly thrown ball by Jay Cutler, giving the Giants the opportunity to score and either tie or take the lead late. New York found their rhythm and rode the momentum with another 1 yard run by Mays, giving New York a 24-20 lead. Despite having over a minute to play, Chicago could not move the ball as the Giants defense would come up with huge pressure and sack Cutler twice and forcing poor passes, securing the Giants 24-20 win and moving them to 2-0 on the season with a trip to Landover next week to face division rival Washington.​

    LANDOVER, MD. In its simplest form, football is a game of numbers. Just ask the Washington Redskins. For instance, take 379 and 17. Both prime numbers and both rather innocuous if considered in regard to no particular context. However, if fortune and chance had cruelly combined to make you a player, coach, owner, or fan of the hapless Redskins, 379 and 17 were more than just prime numbers and were the farthest thing from innocuous. The SteamboatReb era in D.C. was 379 days and 17 straight regular season losses in a row old. If these two prime numbers were in the heads of every member of the Redskins nation at kickoff, they had given way to other numbers, including the loneliest prime number of them all, by the final whistle. At the conclusion of the game, the Redskins could think of only three numbers. 24, 10 and 1. Redskins 24, Falcons 10, and the Redskins 1st win of the Steamboat era.

    Undoubtedly, a certain number was in swirling around Redskins' second year QB Matt Hill's mind before this game as well. 46. As in 46 interceptions thrown in his first 17 starts in HK, or 2.70 interceptions per game for his career. Hill began the long journey to reducing his interceptions per game average on Sunday, throwing only one meaningless interception before half and coming in at roughly 1/3rd of his career average. While Hill's interception total was a very important number on Sunday, it was not the most important. By taking care of the ball, Hill gave the Redskins a chance to win their first game in over a year. The numbers that propelled them to a win came from one of only a handful of Redskins who bear no responsibility for the 17 game skid.

    This Redskins win was made possible by still three other numbers. 22, 193 and 3. One Redskin is responsible for these numbers, and he alone deserves the most credit for the win. Rookie HB Eluzies Wells wears number 22, rushed for 193 yards, scored 3 touchdowns, and even more so than Hill's ball management, Wells performance was the key to this Redskins win.

    Early i the week, SteamboatReb made no bones about it - - Washington had QB problems, the problems were interceptions and interceptions were costing wins. SteamboatReb even remarked that the "Matt Hill experiment might be at an end." Today, SteamboatReb freely admitted that the front office had begun deliberating which star would be cut or traded to make room for one of the FA QBs available. For the time being, SteamboatReb has informed the front office to cease and desist. Hill is the man - - - for now.

    SteamboatReb also made it clear that, in his mind, Eluzies Wells is the man making the difference. In just two games as a pro, Wells has rushed for 334 yards and scored four TDs. The Redskins simply did not have this kind of home-run hitter at HB last year, and they likely have not enjoyed such a talent since the days of Gibbs, Riggins and the Hogs. When asked about the key to his early success in HK, Wells confidently stated, "Since I was a kid, I have excelled at this game at every level. And, I owe it all to my mother and the values she instilled in me. Through my mother, I have found all the strength I need." However, Eluzies' mother, Sandra Washington, will tell you that Wells' ability and strength is "a gift from the Lord." Well's mother continued, "I knew he was special the day he was born, and I gave him a name befitting the potential that I saw." "Eluzies" is a variation of the Hebrew word "Eluzai" which means "God is my strength." At least two games in to his career, Wells' performance on and off the field has served to his mother correct.

    To be fair, the Redskins cannot take all of the credit for the win. Mother nature helped out a bit as well, as the wind was swirling at 13 miles per hour for the duration of the game. The wind wreaked havoc on Atlanta's vertical passing game and special teams. Ryan lost balls out of bounds down field several times when trying to hook up with Roddy White, and Neil Rackers missed a FG in the first half when the wind pushed a kick in to the goalpost. The Falcons offense, and Ryan in particular, came out flat and remained flat throughout the game.

    Post-game, SteamboatReb was clear that the win will be enjoyed and celebrated, but it is only one win. He said, "Only one game matters right now. Our next game. The New York Giants." He went to state that in the next few weeks the 'Skins will lean on their new-found running attack which he hopes will ease the pressure on Matt Hill. SteamboatReb reasoned, "If we can run it, then #5 is relaxed, and he makes better decisions and throws. If we can protect the ball, and let our defense stay fresh, we can compete with anybody in HK."

    Rams Bounce Back with 20-7 Home Win Against the Cowboys
    Rams GM Questioned Post-Game about some Questionable Tactics​
    [​IMG]
    St Louis, Missouri
    After a great win against such a dominant team the Rams GM was ready to answer questions about the team's ability to come back and get the W after being embarassed by the Falcons last week. There were many questions that could have been asked like why was Freeman demoted to 2nd string? Or why was Steven Jackson not the starting back against Atlanta? I mean he certainly proved his worth by rushing for 115 yards on 24 carries tonight. However, when Billy Devaney was asked to step up to the podium only 1 question really mattered....​
    What the F goes on in St Louis that makes opposing teams feel like they are playing in slow motion?!?!
    Looking at the stats you can see that the Cowboys chose to throw the ball once....yes that wasn't a typo...starting QB Ryan Mallet went 1 for 1 for 16 yards, meaning that the Rams defense has the distinct honor of going 2 weeks without the opposing QB missing a pass, but the headline news came after the game, when Mallet was seen hurling F-Bombs all around the stadium. He sensed that there was some foul play that went on in the Lou, as he dropped back 6 times to pass the ball and 5 out of those 6 times he was sacked before he could release the ball. Mallet, known for his quick release (i think?) was furious, claiming that the Rams were known for sneaking in some sleeping pills to the opposing QBs in their games, making their reaction time much slower than normal. Deveaney decided to not focus on Mallet's furious rant, but instead congratulated the team on this week's win and looked forward to their week 3 showdown against the Lions.​
    *The League will be investigating "Lag-Gate" and will inform the Rams on their decision* ​

    Raven Bounce Back
    [​IMG]
    Ravens coming off an eye-opening loss to the ravens came into mile high ticked off to put it mildly. Ravens won the toss and elected to defer just ready to hit sombody and thats what they did all game long. Ravens got the 1st two TDs and were in control from there. Rookies DE Roberts and OLB Strong had big games with strong subbing for injuried crawford made a int that pretty much ended any hope Denver had and Roberts caused chaos in the back field all game long coming up with 3 sacks. Ravens win 48-17.

    Jaguars Beat Vikings Behind MJD's 264 Rushing Yards
    [​IMG]
    The Jaguars show a lot of poise being down 17-3 at halftime to comeback and win 34-23. Even in the beginning of the 3rd quarter the Vikings were able to score a TD, but failed to capitalize on the extra point going up 23-3. Then something happened Maurice Jones-Drew decided to show up for the game, he then had a 78 yard run for a TD, to make the score 23-10. On the next series the Vikes were looking to score a TD from about 5 yards out when Jags MLB Paul Posluszny took a Christian Ponder pass 100 yards back for a TD. After a Vikings 3 and out, MJD broke off another 78 yard run for a TD. The Jaguars then scored a field goal and another pick 6 in the 4th quarter to seal the game. The Jaguars have a bye next week, while the Vikings take on the Packers.

    Rookie MLB causes 3 fumbles as Seattle routs Miami, 44-6​
    [​IMG]
    Are we about to witness the next Brian Urlacher?​
    Seattle -- There were rumblings on draft day about the Seahawks' first round draft pick.​
    "He can't cover," members of the league said.​
    So far, Houston has covered.​
    "He's not a 4-3 linebacker."​
    So far, he's been one of the best linebackers in the league, regardless of defensive of formation.​
    In just two games, the rookie from Notre Dame has 12 tackles and 4 forced fumbles, two of which have been returned for touchdowns.​
    The result has been excellent field position and early leads for a Seattle team that sits at 2-0 and has scored 44 points in each of their first two games.​
    "Getting turnovers like that is just so huge for our football team," Coach Davis said. "Our philosophy here is defense first, and let them control the game for us. So far, it is working."​
    I can't get the videos to work. It keeps putting them as media and then it won't play. Sorry guys.
