NFL Week 10 Champs and Chumps

Photo By Matt Freed/Post-Gazette CHAMPS Brent Grimes For some odd reason, the Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator thought it appropriate to single cover Calvin Johnson Sunday with their best corner Brent Grimes. Grimes is a really good corner. He already has five interceptions this year. The problem is he is 5’10” (I think that is generous) and slower than the average corner. He isn’t slow, just slower. Well after being beat for a touchdown by Calvin Johnson in one on one coverage he was in one on one coverage again, was beat by a couple steps, and jumps what seemed to be five feet in the air to make a one handed catch. That is a big time play.

Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving Celebrate Win with an Invisible Joint

Everything is going well when your star players are smoking invisible joints! Following the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 118-111 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday, point guard Kyrie Irving said the Cavs are finally starting to play together as a team. Irving scored 32 points along with five rebounds, nine assists, and four three-pointers during the win and spoke of the team’s blossoming chemistry after the game. “This game was special because it was the first game we actually played well together as a group,” Irving said. The Cavs still have some building to do, but the fact that Irving and superstar LeBron James were able to co-exist on Monday night is a great sign for Cavs fans. Kevin Love also chipped in 22 points on 7-of-13 shooting (including six threes) but managed just five rebounds to go with his one steal and two assists in the Cavs’ win. Love ...

Kevin Harvick wins at Phoenix

Kevin Harvick takes the checkered flag and moves on to race at Homestead, Logano, Hamlin, and Newman join him Kevin Harvick had one of the most dominant cars NASCAR has seen all season, leading 264 of 312 laps en route to the season sweep of Phoenix. This win punches Harvick’s ticket to Homestead as he will now look to win his first Sprint Cup title. Polesitter Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano overcame big mistakes on pit road to move onto the next round. Ryan Newman made a very bold move in the final turn on the last lap to move on by just one point. Runner-up finisher Jeff Gordon was eliminated after Newman made his bold pass on Kyle Larson to gain the one point advantage over Gordon that he needed. Matt Kenseth and Brad Keselowski finished 3rd and 4th respectively, but were both eliminated from the Chase. Hamlin finished 5th ...

NFL Week 9 Champs and Chumps

CHAMPS Brad Wing Never heard of him? That is ok. Nobody but LSU fans did before this week. The Pittsburg Steelers’ punter and place holder made a heads up play turning a botched extra point into a two point play. If you didn’t know any better you would have thought he planned it. Mark Sanchez Nick Foles went down hard in the first quarter for the Eagles and backup QB Mark Sanchez came in and lit up the Houston Texans. Instead of making more memorable plays like the Butt Fumble, he threw for over 200 yards and two touchdowns leading the Eagles to a win. Bruce Irvin The Seattle Seahawks intercepted Raiders’ rookie QB Derek Carr twice. Bruce Irvin made a huge play by not only tipping the ball to himself, but also returning it for a touchdown. It showed importance with the Seahawks almost giving away the game and winning ...
