Best and Worst of the weekend

Posted by mvetack on September 14, 2010

Stealing a page from Dan Patrick’s terrific radio show (6 foot 170) no not that.. ding!… I mean their “Best and Worst” of the weekend portion of the show.  I ll do three of each.

Worst of the weekend

The fact that Calvin Johnson’s potential game winning Touch down was not ruled a catch and allowed the Bears to hold on for the victory.  Everyone has seen the play by now and most agree that Calvin made a nice grab.  Yes I guess the odd and newly implemented rule was followed in this case but the rule doesnt really seem to work when you look at the play and you know its a catch.  Rules are supposed to be implemented to make sure the right thing is happening or call is made.  Does not make sense to have a rule that goes against common sense.

Tashard Choice getting the ball stripped from him on the final play of the first half on Sunday Night.  In a low scoring battle, DeAngelo Hall stripped Choice and then took one to the house as time expired.  The Cowboys had their video game hats on while deciding to go for a last second hail mary of sorts that resulted in a dump down to the Cowboys rb.  The Skins would never find the end zone again and didn’t need to as they held on for a 13 – 7 victory.

Virginia Tech losing to Division II James Madison.  James Madison is a pretty good football program, for division II.  Virginia Tech is dangerously close to making what is now a very disappointing season into a potential program hurting season.  Va Tech has to regain its swagger and go on a win streak in the coming weeks.  A BCS bowl is still very possible.  Va Tech needs to focus on the ACC and winning that conference.

Best of the Weekend

Denard Robinson torching my Notre Dame Fighting Irish.  Although he was slowed down for most of the second half, he commanded a last minute drive to send the Wolverines to 2-0.  Robinson totaled over 500 yards of offense and should Michigan continue to win, is a heavy favorite for the early season Heisman.

Arian Foster and the Texans absolutely dominated the Colts on the ground on their way to a statement in division win on Sunday.  Arian Foster rattled off 231 yards and 3 TDs as the Texans did everything perfect to open up huge running lanes for their new star in the making.  The Colts rush D is definately something that needs to be fixed or they are going to have a hard time beating anyone.  The Colts should be fine as long as they have Peyton but that D has got to make some changes quick.

Captain America Kevin Durant and his teammates performance in Turkey.  Team USA took down host Turkey in the FIBA Championships and earned the first qualifying spot for the 2012 Olympics.  Durant lead the way with 38 points and a new U.S. record for points against Lithuania to advance to the Finals.  In the Championship game Durant added 28 as team USA coasted to a 81 to 64 victory over Turkey.
