NFL Players of Week 2

We’re a second week in and the next coming of Cam Newton has come in the form of RG3. Swapping places with Matt Ryan from #2 to #1 overall QB (both of which I have in my money league) we’re wondering if he can be stopped. While the Redskins ended up losing to the lowly Rams, this rookie is out to break records that Newton set last year.

A half-dozen teams are 2-0 (including the 49ers and Cardinals sharing the same division) with the Raiders (not surprising) and the (gasp!) Saints being winless at 0-2.

Super Bowl 2007, part II – Patriots versus Giants

The New York Giants didn’t beat the San Francisco 49ers so much as the 49ers just beat themselves. Two lost kick/punt returns by Kyle Williams (who I can reasonably see as not making the 53-man roster next year now, despite his fill-in receiving statistics this season) combined with having zero third-down conversions after twelve tries. Yes, the 49ers were 0-for-12 on 3rd down.

How do the 49ers normally win football games? The +28 turnover margin got them to the playoffs. They had no fumble recoveries or interceptions tonight. Notch that as a -2 turnover stat.

The Giants beat the Green Bay Packers last week in overtime with a field goal, and they did it to the 49ers this week in a similar fashion. I don’t feel as if the New England Patriots will be as forgiving two weeks from now, in the Super Bowl. Hey, at least Eli can say hi to his brother’s stadium in Indianapolis.

Top NFL Players week 17

While there was only one mystery to be had on playoff positioning (New York Giants making it, the Dallas Cowboys going home) there were plenty of surprises with the performances of each top player this week. I was able to win my second money league’s super bowl, thanks to my opponent’s Aaron Rodgers resting up for next weekend.

Now that we’re done with the regular season of 2011, enjoy the playoffs, as all 3 of my favorite teams are in it this year.  Continue reading “Top NFL Players week 17” Top NFL Players week 17
