Top NFL players – week 1

What a week we had in the NFL. I lost track of the broken records, career highs, and unbelievable scoring and each performance that I highly doubt will be a consistent sight for the remainder of the season. As is the Packers-Saints game didn’t give enough quarterback highlights, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees didn’t land in the top 3 of the week for quarterbacks, and 3 huge surprises made it into the top 5, whom you likely had on your bench or in free agency.

The running back situation was also a shock, as Adrian Peterson, Chris Johnson, and Arian Foster were nowhere near the top 10. Instead you saw the likes of Ben Tate, Chris Beanie Wells, and Mike Tolbert. The wide receiver core looked somewhat normal, although big time Andre Johnson barely made the top 10, and you’ll never see Terrell Owens or Randy Moss again.

Who made the top 5 list? The list goes as….  Continue reading “Top NFL players – week 1” Top NFL players – w…

Eagles toy with the Giants for 53 minutes before wiping them out

You’ve seen the highlights. You know what happened – 28 unanswered points in the 4th quarter, with under seven-and-a-half minutes remaining in the game. The New York Giants became the first team to blow a 21-point lead in the fourth quarter and lose since, well, since they gave it up to the Tennessee Titans in 2006.

After an amazingly well kicked on-side kickoff and a nice game-ending punt return by DeSean Jackson, the Eagles take the Giants, again, and effectively take the NFC-North divison.

It’s On with DeSean

This is the first time I bring you a 3-part 10 o’clock Touchdown Madden 11 replay. One game, one player, three different return touchdowns.

I decided to upgrade my return-man from Ted Ginn to DeSean Jackson, who on any given Sunday is the fastest guy out on the field, and likely the entire stadium. He has the best track speed (versus Chris Johnson who has the fastest football speed), and these 3 returns certainly prove it.

I give to you a 98-yard kickoff return, a well as 82-yard and 76-yard punt returns. In the same game. Can you imagine the fantasy points?
