Best and Worst of the Weekend

Worst of the Weekend

Arkansas had a 13 point lead on the number one team in the country and blew it.  Yes you are playing the best team in the country defending their title with the defending Heisman winner, but if you are any type of good team with a supposed Heisman candidate at QB who is gonna be a first rounder next year, you do not blow that lead.  Alabama is a great team and it is tough to stop from getting two touchdowns, but you gotta put some points on the board Mallett.

The Texas Longhorns got blasted by UCLA over the weekend.  UCLA dropped a 34 spot on the Horns while holding them to just 12 points.  Texas lost McCoy to the NFL but that does not excuse the 6 year old girl fight they put up against UCLA.  The Longhorn’s season is over now in terms of any hope of a National Title now.

Tom Brady knocking down a pass late in the 4th quarter.  This play got overlooked by everyone including the announcers doing the Patriots Bills game.  It did not end up meaning anything but it very well could have.  With just over 3 minutes left in the game the Patriots set up a short pass on 4th and long to try and pick up some extra yards to get a better punt off.  The Bills are down 8 and are getting the ball back for one final attempt at a game tying drive.  Brady threw a pass that got blocked by the D line and right back to him.  Instead of catching the pass then running or even just taking a knee to keep the clock going and forcing the Bills to take their final time out, he bats it down and stops the clock.  Now, the clock is stopped before the punt and the Bills have a very helpful time out in the pocket.  With little time left the Bills need to save as much time as they need.

Best of the Weekend

Leon Washington had two spectacular kick off returns for touchdowns in a win vs the slow starting San Diego Chargers.  Two out of the three touchdowns the Seahawks scored, including the game winner, were these two kick off returns.  The Hawks offense did not do too much so Washington bailed them out to get the win.

The Texas Rangers are in the playoffs.  It has been 11 years since October has hosted the Rangers.  The AL West has been dominated by the Angels for a while now.  The Rangers used surprisingly good pitching a an always special offense on their way to a division title that cultivated over the weekend.

Anquan Boldin was a fantasy hero this weekend and more importantly a Baltimore hero in a win over the Cleveland Browns.  Boldin racked up 143 receiving yards and all three of Baltimore’s touchdowns on Sunday.  Bolding seems to have gotten out of Arizona just in time, and is now the best player on a Super Bowl contending team.
