Best and Worst of the Weekend

Posted by mvetack on September 20, 2010

Worst of the Weekend

Iowa’s offensive line on the final drive vs Arizona.  Iowa charged back while everyone was sleeping thinking they got smoked, and tied the game late in the 4th quarter.  Arizona took the lead with about 2 minutes left to play.  Iowa had to make one drive to keep their BCS championship hopes alive.  Instead, they got NFL Blitzed for 4 straight sacks to start the drive.  The first came on 3 straight heavy blitzes and the final sack on 4th down came on a 4 man rush.

The Patriots second half vs the Jets resulted in 3 turnovers, no points, and very little yards.  After one half of football the Patriots lead the Jets 14 – 10 and appeared to have no problem moving the ball on offense.  Moss made an amazing touchdown grab, Welker was catching passes, and the running game was looking respectable.  Once both teams came out of the tunnel for the second half things changed.  Brady threw a carer high 6 straight completions including two interceptions and fumbled away a last gasp effort to make a comeback in the red zone.

The Colorado Rockies blew an early 6-1 lead to the Dodgers and lost in extras 7-6.  The Rockies are in the middle of a playoff race for both the division and the wild card.  They can not afford to let games get away from them at this point in the season.  Every game and every inning counts.  The off season could be a long and dreadful one for the Rockies if this game causes them to miss the playoffs.

Best of the Weekend

Troy Tulowitzki is having the best month baseball has ever seen.  In his last 16 games Tulo has whacked 14 home runs and is making a late charge at the MVP.  Tulo hit three of those 14 HRs over the weekend to keep the Rockies in the playoff hunt.  It is sad that so many people are in NFL and College football mode right now because the Giants, Padres, and Rockies are in quite the late season battle and Tulo is doing something you may never see again.

Jahvid Best had a week one and NFL debut to forget last week vs the Bears but more than made up for it on Sunday.  Jahvid had 78 rush yards and 2 TDs to go along with 154 recieving yards and a 75 yard receiving TD.  If Best can perform any where near this on a weekly basis, the Lions look to have quite the future with Stafford, Johnson, and Best on the offensive side of the ball.  Jahvid did all he could do in a tough loss to the Eagles.

Michael Vick got his first start in the NFL since 2006. Boy did he take advantage of it.  Not only did Vick make highlight play after highlight play teaming up with DeSean Jackson, he also put together a 21 for 34 for 284 yard day in the air for 2 TDs and 37 yards on the ground.  Vick did all he could to take over the Eagles in a victory on Sunday.  If only Andy Reid would do what every non PETA football fan wants and hand him the rains to the team.

    The Detroit Lions continue to find unique ways to lose a game. Very frustrating.
