News and Notes - Eli Manning is "Fake" Good?

This dude argues that Eli Manning isn’t the real deal and I’m not so sure how much I disagree with him. He says,
Eli Manning plays quarterback like your 7-year-old cousin playing Madden. He makes all the throws — the chicken-with-his-head-cut-off bullet, the one where he lobs it over the middle and his receiver makes a sliding catch in traffic, and finally the definitive Madden throw where he was panicked by two unblocked blitzers and tapped a receiver button as fast as he possibly could. Of course, like Madden (at least, Madden '04), Plaxico Burress caught the ball with little or no interference from the defensive back, ran over him, and waltzed into the end zone. Exactly how they drew it up.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is being inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame. Other notable Texans being inducted: Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds, soccer great Mia Hamm, Cowboys Ring of Honor member Don Perkins, Pro Football Hall of Famer Warren Moon and Texas native and OU great Billy Sims. Jerry, why is it that the only good players to come out of OU are from Texas? You just can’t win can you?

Danieal Manning to Start for Da Bears


Danieal Manning will start for Da Bears this Sunday. Coach Lovie Smith said, "We've seen Danieal make some good plays ... [and] we think he gives us the best chance to win. He's the best player at the position right now." You go boy! And in case you didn't know, Manning is from the U as in, ACU as in he went to school at Abilene Christian. More about Manning getting the starting nod here.

Cry Me a River Oklahoma

It is now Wednesday, a full four days after their game, and Oklahoma is still crying about the missed call by the refs against Oregon. The latest sad, complaint in the form of a threat is that OU will cancel their 2008 game against Washington if the Pac-10 doesn’t change its rule requiring league officials to be used at its home stadiums for non-conference games. Oklahoma should be embarrassed about the way their entire school from the administration to the coaches to the players to their fans are crying about how they got cheated. First of all, it is clear that the refs missed that call on the onside kick. The Pacific-10 Conference admitted Monday the onside kick was touched by an Oregon player before it traveled the required 10 yards, and, therefore, possession should have been awarded to Oklahoma. No debate there. As for the pass interference call against Oklahoma that occurred on Oregon’s last drive, that play was also reviewed by the conference, which found it did not have indisputable evidence that the pass was tipped, as Stoops had claimed. So throw that “controversial” call out altogether. So we agree that the refs missed the call on the onside kick. Newsflash – REFS MISS CALLS! Referees are human and therefore imperfect, they will make mistakes. This isn’t the first time an official has blown a call nor will it be the last time. As unfortunate as it may be and as mad as it may make fans, mistakes are just part of the game. Not only do officials blow calls, but quarterbacks throw interceptions, running backs fumble, linebackers miss tackles, defensive backs blow coverages, and kickers shank field goals. I also don’t have to mention that coaches make mistakes too. So the officials screwed up. They should be punished. Newsflash number two- they are! The league suspended the officials responsible for one game, and commissioner Tom Hansen apologized for the mistake. What more does OU want? Do you really want to know? Oklahoma president David Boren, in a letter sent Monday to the Big 12 Conference, requested that the game should not count as a win or loss by either team "in light of the level of officiating mistakes." Are you serious, Mr. Boren? Please tell me how you became the president of a major university with ridiculous conclusions like that? Fortunately, not everyone involved thinks as irrationally as President Boren, as Big 12 commissioner Kevin Weiberg responded with a statement saying the result of the game would stand. "There is no provision under NCAA or conference rules for a game result to be reversed or changed as a result of officiating errors, nor do I believe there should be," he said. Amen to that, Mr. Weiberg. As I mentioned before, this isn’t the first time an official has made an error. If we throw out every game where every call isn’t 100% correct, I’m sure that somewhere it will cost Oklahoma a loss or two. I doubt President Boren would be for that though. Finally, I would like to address all the Oklahoma crying saying that the refs cost them the game. Sooners quarterback Paul Thompson said the team still feels "like we got a win that was taken from us." Really, Paul so it was all the refs fault you guys lost that game? It had nothing to do with the fact that the Oklahoma defense gave up 501 total yards to Oregon’s offense? Explain to me how the refs caused Oregon quarterback Dennis Dixon to be 25 of 40 for 350 yards with 3 TDs, 1 rushing, including two TD drives in the final 1:09. Did you know that the Ducks were an impressive 9 of 15 on third and fourth-down conversions? Oh, but none of that could possibly have anything to do with Oklahoma getting beat, it is solely the refs fault. Last but not least, we agreed earlier that the officials messed up. OU, please tell me why this was a free pass for your secondary to leave Oregon’s receiver wide open for the game winning 23 yard TD with only seconds left. Nobody is mentioning the fact that the Sooners gave up two touchdowns in the final 72 seconds of the game. But even after all that OU still had an opportunity to win it with a field goal as time expired. Oregon blocked that FG to preserve their victory and even whiny OU fans can’t blame that on the officials. So the way I see it, sure Oklahoma we all know the officials messed up, they admit it and they are being punished for it. But Oklahoma you ultimately have no one to blame for your loss but yourselves. Quit making excuses. You just look and sound like pathetic losers. Man up and be accountable that your sucky team finally didn’t get lucky and they lost. Don’t try to act like you are a national title contender, sure you may end up with a decent record but you have a cupcake schedule. You struggled your first two games and you will lose more games this season anyway. At least don’t be gay babies when you lose.

Happy Birthday King!!


Today Dan Marino turns 45. In case you have no clue what football is, Dan holds just about every record for the Quarterback position. He also was in Ace Ventura, and never won a Super Bowl. So I guess Trent Dilfer is better than him huh?

It also Robert and Dusty Strobel's 25th Anniversary. Too bad their son isn't as good as Trey Allen.

It is also Jason Terry's birthday.

He's back...


I know this isn't sports news, but it is crunk enough to make Silvasportz. There have been many rumors about Jay's return and I am confirming that it is true. After a two year hiatus, Jigga has decided to drop a new album titled Thy Kingdom Come in November. Also in November two me's will be getting married. Yes, Jay and Beyonce. The production on this album will be off the chain. The producers are Timbaland, Dr. Dre, Chris Martin and Kanye West. This will easily go platinum, along with Nasir's next album which should drop around the same time.

Fred Rouse and Ryan Perrilloux


I have been criticized lately by some scrubs that shall remain nameless that my posts have been “old news”. Therefore today I am dropping some hot news that no one knew about. I once again did some digging and I came up wit dis:

Ex- Florida State wide-out Fred Rouse has enrolled at UTEP. This article is a little outdated (from August 24th) but it gives the info. It mentions that Rouse must sit out a year due to his transfer, but this article mentions that UTEP coach Mike Price told the local news station that Rouse could practice with the team as a walk-on this season after the Texas Tech game September 9th. I am unclear if that means that Rouse can practice with the team but would be prohibited from seeing any game action until next year or what. You may remember Rouse was the top wide receiver in the nation coming out of high school in 2005 and he even thought that he could go pro straight from HS. You may also remember that one of the illest MC’s of our time had a sick rhyme about Rouse. Here is another article about the transfer with a picture of Rouse looking nase-tee.

Also, while we are on the subject of top recruits who didn’t pan out, here is an interesting, random article about Ryan Perrilloux. It happens to mention that Perrilloux dissed U.T. after he said he was going there before signing at LSU and it looks at what “might” have happened if Perrilloux had stuck with Texas as his choice of college. Oh yeah, it portrays Perrilloux as a cocky SOB who thinks the world of himself.

News and Notes - College Footbrawls

South Carolina starting quarterback Blake Mitchell was arrested after a bar fight Wednesday and has been suspended indefinitely from the team.

This guy really wanted the starting job. I mean really wanted that job.

The Green Bay Packers have traded RB Samkon Gado to the Houston Texans for RB Vernand Morency.

ESPNews reports the NFL reviewed Cincinnati Bengals DL Robert Geathers' hit on Kansas City Chiefs QB Trent Green and determined, while the hit was unfortunate, it was not an illegal hit.

The Carolina Panthers worked out ex-Cowboy Drew Henson Tuesday, but didn't sign him.

Beyond the Glory - Hoover Football


Since I have some time to kill, you are the ones who reap the benefits of my boredom. Today I was sitting at work bored so I flipped channels and watched the MTV show ”Two-A-Days”. After the show I wanted to find out more about Hoover and it’s players so I went and did a little research. I now present to you my findings.

Hoover Football’s homepage. Has a lot of information but I could not find a roster anywhere on there. Maybe you can.

First off, I know many have been curious about Hoover’s loss on a recent episode of the show. Here is a press release from when Hoover lost to Tuscaloosa County and that black QB shredded them. The quarterback’s name is Deon Williams and he is now a running back for Valdosta State. Williams has played in both of Valdosta States first two games as a true freshman. He is second on their depth chart at RB.

Here are some profiles/info I found on the main characters of the show.
Max Lerner, #24
Dwarn “Repete” Smith, #91
Ross Wilson, #14
Alex Binder, #34 Oh, this fool is a thief and was arrested this past summer, after he had already graduated from Hoover, for breaking into a car.
Bryan Morgan, #74

Cute Random Fact: Chad Jackson and Taylor Hicks went to Hoover.

In case you are wondering and you don’t want to wait until the season is over on MTV, I will tell you now that the featured Hoover team goes on to win the 6A State Championship with their only loss being to Tuscaloosa County. Hoover also finishes ranked #8 nationally by USA Today.

Here is some more spoiler info that I got off of Wikipedia.
Despite frequent references to college football by head coach Rush Propst, safety Max Lerner was the only graduating senior cast member to earn a Division I scholarship, accepting an offer to play football at Division I-AA Furman University. Cast member Dwarn "Repete" Smith walked on at Auburn University in the fall of 2006. He quit the team but later declared his intentions to walk on again in 2007. Cast member Alex Binder accepted a baseball scholarship to Bevill State in Sumiton, Alabama. Junior quarterback Ross Wilson, who is now playing his senior season, has declared his intent to play college baseball rather than football at the University of Alabama. The 2006 senior football class is considered by some recruiters to be superior to the 2005 class portrayed in the series, with wide receiver Brandon Clear, guard Patrick Crump, center Ryan Pugh, defensive end Byron Clear, and defensive tackles Josh Chapman and Kerry Murphy all considered legitimate Division I prospects.

News and Notes - Largent's Son is a Prevert

This one is posted especially for Sarah. She basically knows Steve Largent since she met him once.

More on the Raiders getting owned by the Chargers. Raiders coach Art Shell pulled quarterback Aaron Brooks from Monday night’s game because he said he feared for the player's safety. Looks like Shell was just a little late as Brooks got beat up so much he will now undergo an MRI on a sore knee.

The Jaguars have signed ex-Cowboys DT Montavious Stanley.

I know the Dolphins got beat by the Steelers, but surely they can’t be this desperate.

Speaking of the Fins, coach Nick Saban is still crying about the call on Heath Miller’s TD almost a week ago. Saban now thinks that the answer lies in doing things the NCAA way.

Last week’s rankings here. Think I'm wrong? I doubt it, but let me know who you believe should be higher or lower.

Quote of the Day


Today’s quote of the day comes from Lee-owns receiver Ray Williams (with a long belt) For some reason Williams decided to go off and guarantee a victory when the Lions play the Bears next Sunday.

"We'll win this game," Williams said Monday. "You can take that as a guarantee … or what not, but we will win this game." A few moments later a reporter asked Williams if he was making a Rasheed Wallace type gurantee. Williams responded by saying, "I'm just saying, we're going to go out there and play the way we supposed to play, and when we play the way we're supposed to play, we're supposed to win, that's what I'm saying. We're supposed to win.” Williams, who got worked over as a sophomore for Odessa Permian by the Coogs in 1997 went on to say, "No 'Sheed. No nothing. Just, when we play the way we're supposed to play -- like our defense played the way they played Sunday -- when we play the way we're supposed to play, I don't think there's any team in this league that can beat us. Offensively, we beat ourselves. No defense can stop us, in my opinion. That's only my opinion. We are our only defense." Finally Roy showed off his math skills by saying "It was stupid how close we were to putting 40 points on the board." Ummm, are we talking about the same game Roy? The game you and your team lost to the Seahawks 9-6? You might be able to argue that your D came through, but how were you so close to putting 40 points on the board? The only thing stupid is you giving the arguably best defense in the league bulletin board material.

The Raiders Suck


Did you see the “game” against the Chargers and the Raiders Monday night? I say “game” in quotes because it can hardly be called that. The Raiders were dominated all around. No wonder the Raiders in the pic are crying. It started with the awful offense gaining only 129 total yards of total offense. The Raiders couldn’t run the ball. Lamont Jordan was outrushed by Young Hug. I don’t know if Jordan can keep his job because he cannot passblock to save his life. With that being said, I would take Jordan to pass block to save my life over Bob Gallery aka Undertaker aka Waste of Space! This thing is listed at 6’7” 325 pounds, now I don’t doubt Merriman is strong but he went right through Gallery on every pass rush! The saddest thing is that the Raiders took Gallery with the 2nd pick of the 2004 draft. Second! That means that could have drafted Larry Fitzgerald, Phil Rivers, Sean Taylor, Kellen Winslow, Roy Williams, DeAngelo Hall, Ben Roethlisberger, and Jon Vilma just to name a few. Gallery, my only advice to you is to cheat. I am not sure what you need to do but it needs to be something and fast if you want to continue playing in the NFL. Aaron Brooks looked like a middle schooler dropping back in the pocket. He held the ball entirely too long he didn’t even try after halftime. But I don’t know if I can blame him. I also don’t blame Jerry Porter for demanding the Gay-ders trade him. I feel sorry for Moss as he is miserable with this poopy team. Since I am ripping on the offense I want to give equal time to telling you how sorry the Raider defense was too. LT topped 100 yards rushing in the second quarter! The announcers tried to say the Raiders were doing well towards the end of the game as they stopped the Chargers on a few drives but the Chargers knew they had the game sewed up at half time. They started running the clock down in the third quarter! The Chargers ran the ball on 48 of 59 plays, including about 8 HB dives to Michael Turner in a row at the end. Sean Salisbury might have summed it up best when he said that the Raiders couldn’t qualify for a BCS bowl right now. The Raiders are 2-17 against the AFC West their last games.
As for the Chargers, Merriman is a BEAST! He had 3 of the Chargers 9 sacks. We all know LT is a king as I mentioned earlier he was done by half time with already a hundred yards. At the beginning of the game I believe they fed LT about 13 times of the first 15 plays. Hey if you’ve got the biggest cannon, you shoot it. Anyway, if you have a head coach or a defense or any player for that matter that goes up against the Raiders, play them that week in fantasy football. I promise everyone will produce and look good going against Oakland.

Quick Hits



The Seattle Seahawks have aquired the MVP of Super Bowl XXXIX. For some reason they decided to trade a first round pick for him!?

The Green Bay Packers possibly got a little better but I doubt it. They signed DUI- Boy. They have not released any contract information.

St. Louis center Andy McCollum will miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL and MCL. Richie Incognito may get the nod for the rest of the season.

In other injury news, Jacksonville DE Reggie Hayward will undergo season-ending surgery on his ruptured achilles.

Minnesota Vikings safety Dwight Smith has been deactivated for tonight's game against the 'skins. Coach Airbud Clown said he was in trouble or something, and is trying to lay down the law.

In other Redskin's news, linebacker Marcus Washington barks in the morning because he is so excited about game day. Read the whole story here.

Turns out that 3 kings have the same birthday. Phil Silva, Jr. John, and Brad Johnson.

Phil's Monday Morning Quarterbacks

Since I am the best QB in the household, I suppose I will give a quick break down of some QB’s who leave doubt in your mind. And depending on how they continue to play, could get their squads into the playoffs. Or vice versa. And yes, that is one of my favorite movies.

Lets begin with Culp
In Minnesota he just bombed Moss. In Miami, Daunte did not impress me. And I aint talking about that mall pizza. He seemed to not check down to his other receivers. On one play in particular, He stared down a target and Polamalu ate it. His passes were not that good and off target. He looked ancy in the pocket. Pete refers to Nance as Ancy, and says eh. Anywho, he looked very disappointing but so did the entire Dolphin squad. Hell, Dolph Lundgren coulda done better. Hopefully it was just first game jitters.

Donovan McNabb
A lot of questions surround this team but most notably at this position. McNabb looked amazing in the pocket (and out of it). I don’t see any lingering problems with his injuries from last year. And I know he played the gay Texans, but he still had madd mustard on his throws. This looks like the leader from 2004 that threw 31 TDs and 8 INTs. The gay Hitos got a steal in fantasy, and the Iggles may make some noise in the East.

Mike Vick
I have always thought he was a great quarterback. I didn’t say passer, I said quarterback. QBs have to win you games and that’s egg-sackly what he does. He gives the Falcons an extra dimension. Many people think that the Pan-thors have the best D in the league, and Vicky made ‘em look silly. Not only that, but the made J Pepp look slow! I will go on record and say that he is the most exciting QB in the league today. And if he continues to do what he do, then the Falcons are in for a good one. And write this down, I’m officialy on Vick’s n-u-t’s.

Chad Pennington
No matter what you hear, this used to be Mike’s favorite player (wink wink). And yesterday he looked like the Pennington of old. In my opinion, one of the most important statistics for a Q is completion percentage. The 2002 Pennington had a 69 completion percentage and was fantastic. This one had like a 76 completion percentage. Now I’m not saying that they’ll contend for the playoffs, what I am saying is that he saved his job. That’s what a little fire under you’re butt will do for ya. Just look at Drew Brees after Phil Rivers was drafted. He still won’t do better than Vick.

Steve McNair
McNair is such a great addition to this team. The Ravens have always been a team that would rely on straight D, and the offense would only have to put up like 13 points or so. That’s how they did it in ‘02, and Trent Dilfer was the type of guy who was good enough to not make bone head plays, but not good enough to win games alone. When Kyle Boller came in he was the exact opposite in the fact that he DID make the bone head play, and couldn’t win games. Now their vicious D has returned and McNair will NOT make stupid plays. With a Pro-Bowl calibur TE, WR, and possibly RB, he will put them in position to win football games. Add that nasty D into the equation and you got a team that will contend for a Division Title.

Carson Palmer
I’m not gonna say that if he didn’t get hurt last year, we might have a different NFL champion. But…..you get the picture. I really think that he was the best QB in the league last year. And I don’t have any reason to believe he’ll fall off this year. If he stays healthy, the Bun-gals might make some noise. Hell, the AFC North is interesting! The other day Albert and I discussed who had the best RB, WR, WR, QB, TE tandem in the league. And we decided on Dallas. Well, with the play from Bledsoe yesterday, I wanna change my mind and pick Cincy. Even though they don’t use a TE; Rudi, Chad, Carson, Khali, and Chris Henry are a pretty punishing O. And Carson is the head to their Vultron.

Alex Smith
He started to look like the number one pick yesterday. And even though it was against the Cardinal D, he stood in the pocket well and delivered. He did good at checking his reads. Frank Gore had like 80 yards receiving. Antonio Bryant went wild deep. Aikman credits all his glory to Norv Turner, and guess who is Alex Smiths coach. Yup, Norv Turner. Speaking of Aikman he is losing fame rapidly.

Peyton Manning
Nobody in the League, nobody, outworks Peyton Manning. He has the best instincts since Danny boy. And if he retired today, would be a first ballot HOFer. He has so much poise in the pocket, and even though he is almost as statue-ish as Bledsoe, he almost never gets sacked. That’s because of his 99 pocket presence. Anytime number 18 is on your team, you have a chance to win. He threw a few bad passes that coulda been INTd, but he’s still great. He will now have to pick up the slack since Indy has the suckiest run game in the NFL. And I know he can do it.

Eli Manning
All that brother hype was pretty lame. All it was good for was for that lovely home video when Cooper horse collared Peyton. Anyways, Eli played a hell of a game, excluding that last second INT. The Giants are sooo lucky that they have a Manning. The Giants season clearly rests on Eli’s shoulders. If he can get that 52 completion percentage up, the Giants may be in for one hell of a kuh-leek-ee-lee.

It’s too sad to speak about Favre….

Fat Boy
The Dallas D made pigma look pretty crappy at the beginning. Then for some reason, they just decided to switch rolls. Haha, rolls, no pun intended Leftwich. He looked pretty good late in the game and that’s exactly what you want in a QB. I hat to admit it, but Leftwich made some great plays with his arms that kept the Jags in the game. It also helps that the Dallas secondary just gave up. But if Fat continues to strive late in games, I wouldn’t count the gay jags outta the playoff picture.

Now, I saved the best for last…….

Drew Bledsoe
A 50 completion percentage! C’mon Bledsoe, you gotta do better than that. If the Boys want a chance to win games, you CANNOT have costly turnovers late in games. Bledsoe did a horrible job of reading his checks. He threw costly INTs late, and that just cant happen. He tried to force a lot of throws. He missed a wide open TO down the sideline. And how come whenever Bledsoe is under pressure, he just heaves it up to Witten in double coverage? It doesn’t help either that Flozell got his ass kicked. I know were not supposed to swear on Silva Sportz , but jesus Hotel. Arent you supposed to be a Pro Bowler? I know after this game many fans are calling for Romo. My only problem with that is this: If you let Romo start next week, what happens to the team confidence? Putting in a backup QB is basically like telling you’re team “yall sucked, we need to try something new.” And even though Bledsoe played pretty crappy, doesn’t mean the D has to let Matt Jones catch every pass! So I would Bledsoe start again next week, and if he does shitty again like yesterday, then I’d try Romo.

Situ's Week 1 Recaps

Here is a very brief recap on Sunday's games. Since I obviously couldn't watch every game, for the games I missed I am relying on Sportscenter highlights and recaps I read online. You may want to hum the fastest 2 minutes song from NFL Primetime.

GIANTS VS COLTS – BY FAR, HIGHLIGHT OF THE NITE WAS THE PLAYER INTRODUCTIONS WHEN DOM SAID, "DOMINIC RHODES, ABILENE COOPER HIGH SCHOOL." THE FANS WENT WILD. TWO THOUGHTS: I AM VERY PROUD OF DOM AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYBODY IN THE NFL REP A-HIGH. YOU CAN HAVE LACKEY CUZ BASEBALL'S GAY. AS COOL AS DOM WAS, THE COLTS HAD POOR RUSHING, BOTH TEAMS QB’S LOOKED GOOD, PLAXICO BURRESS HAS SOME OF THE BEST HANDS IN THE LEAGUE OR AT LEAST HE DID AGAINST THE COLTS

COWBOYS VS JAGS – FUNNY WHEN LEFTWICH GOT HIT LATE BY ROY BOY, WE ALL KNOW BLEDSOE’S 3 INTS KILLED THE BOYS BUT I WAS ALSO VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH 9 PENALTIES FOR 93 YARDS, EMBARRASSING TO SAY BUT LEFTWICH LOOKED GOOD, BLEDSOE CANNOT THROW ON THE RUN, PURPLE PAL SCORED AND LOOKED GREAT, 24 UNANSWERED POINTS BY JAGS– STEP UP D! T.O. WAS CHEERING/ENCOURAGING TEAMMATES ON THE SIDELINE SAYING “ITS NOT OVER YET!”

CHIEFS VS BENGALS – THE GREAT KALI WAS OUT, RUDI J IS UNDERRATED, KYLE TURLEY’S PASS PROTECTION STUNK UP THE FIELD, 7 SACKS BY CINCY, TRENT GREEN DIED, DAMON HUARD HASN’T COMPLETED A PASS IN NFL SINCE DEC 24,2000. HUARD AS BACK-UP – COULD BE A LONG YEAR FOR CHEFS. AFTER SEEING HIM PERFORM IN PRESEASON, AND AFTER HIS 4 TKLS AND 2 SACKS, I HAVE CONCLUDED ROBERT GEATHERS HAS POTENTIAL, HIS DAD ROBERT GEATHERS SR WAS A DE FOR BILLS AND HIS UNLCE WAS THE INFAMOUS JUMPY.

SAINTS VS BROWNS - REGGIE “UGGGH” BUSH LOOKED NICE WITH 144 TOTAL YDS, BUT NO SCORES. WINSLOW AND BRAYLON BACK FOR BROWNS, CHARLIE FRYE HAD SICK JUKES ON THE GOAL LINE.

EAGLES VS TEXANS – I STILL THINK YOU COULD ARGUE THAT PEYTON OR BRADY ARE BETTER BUT IF I AM STARTING A FRANCHISE I THINK I TAKE MCNABB AS MY QB, HE IS ELITE. HARD TO TELL AS THEY DID PLAY THE TEXANS BUT EAGLES LOOKED VERY TOUGH AS IN BEAT SOME TEAMS IN THE PLAYOFFS TOUGH. GARY KUBIAK'S HAIR LOOKS LIKE A PORCUPINE. DEMECO RYANS HAD 13 TKLS, 12 SOLO FOR TEXANS.

TITANS VS JETS – GOLLUM LOOKED LIKE STRAIGHT TRASH, VY WAS 3 FOR 3 BUT UNDERTHREW HIS MAN AND GOT INT’D. MIKE NUGENT MISSED PAT AND 2 FG’S, I’LL ADMIT PENNINGTON LOOKED GOOD, BUT HE STILL WON’T WIN PETE MONEY AGAINST OUR BET. LAVERNUES 8 REC FOR 153 YDS.

FALCONS VS PANTHERS – JOHN ABRAHAM 2 SACKS, 2 FF. VICK LOOKED LIKE AN ALL-PRO. HE MAY BE THE BEST AT THROWING ON THE RUN IN THE LEAGUE. HIS ZIP ON THE BALL IS SICK. PANTHERS D WAS SHREDDED BY THE RUN GIVING UP 252 RUSHING YDS

RAVENS VS BUCS – RAVENS D LOOKED CRAZY GOOD. RAY-RAY IS BACK AND THIS IS THE RAVENS D THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO SHOW UP LAST YEAR WHEN SOME KING TOOK THEM WITH THEIR 1ST FANTASY PICK.

49ERS VS CARDINALS – KURT VAGNER WAS IN OLD RAMS FORM THROWING FOR 301 YDS AND 3 TD’S, ALEX SMITH LOOKS LIKE HE MAY NOT BE STRAIGHT GARBAGE, VERNON DAVIS IS GREAT.

LIONS VS SEAHAWKS – LIONS BLOCKED TWO FG’S, HAD 5 SACKS, AND HELD SHAUNY TO 51 YDS WITH A 2.7 YD AVG. ERNIE SIMS HAD 10 TKLS. LEE-OWNS SEEMED GOOD BUT STILL LOST. I HEARD RUMORS THAT SEATTLE’S O-LINE STUNK.

RAMS VS MUNCHOS – MIKE BELL CAN’T BLOCK, PLUMMER IS LOSING HIS JOB W/THREE INTS AND A FUMBLE

BEARS VS PACK – FAVRE HAD HIS 1ST SHUTOUT IN HIS 16 YEAR CAREER. I ACTUALLY FEEL SORRY FOR FAVRE THIS YEAR. THE PACKERS ARE HANDS DOWN, NO QUESTIONS ASKED THE WORST FOOTBALL TEAM IN THE LEAGUE. TO GET DOMINATED BY THE BEARS D ISN’T TOO RARE BUT TO GET DOMINATED BY THE BEARS OFFENSE IS HEARTBREAKING. DEVIN HESTER PRODUCED TAKING A PUNT HOUSE AND MY BOY D. MANNING HAD HIS FIRST CAREER INT!

BILLS VS PATS – I WAS SURPRISED THE BILLS MAYBE BETTER THAN I THOUGHT. LOSMAN WAS PRETTY GOOD. MARONEY RAN NICELY EVEN WITH INJURED KNEE.

PASSING LEADERS - PENNINGTON 319 YDS, MCNABB 314 YDS, WARNER 301 YDS, ALEX SMITH 288 YDS

RUSHING LEADERS - W. DUNN 132 YDS, SEPPI 121 YDS, WILLIE PARKER 115, TIKI AND AHAMAN BOTH WITH 110 YDS.

Week 1 Notable Injuries

Why does this not surprise me? (fourth paragraph of article)

Jaguars defensive end Reggie Hayward will miss the season with a torn Achilles' tendon.

Pat Kerney left the game with a right triceps strain.

Lito Sheppard injured his ankle in the first quarter of a win at Houston and did not return.

Robaire Smith hurt his hamstring when he jumped offside in the first quarter against the Jets. Funny! Pay attention girl! Jets left guard Pete Kendall also hurt his hamstring.

Jimmy Kennedy broke his right hand in the first quarter of a victory against Denver and played wearing a cast. Now that’s a man.

Sadly, I sprained my knee Sunday against the Cards. Also, teammate baby ant Jonas Jennings, injured his right ankle in the final seconds of the first half.

Finally, you know I have to comment on Trent Green, everybody. I attempted to watch both early games that were broadcasted in my areas Sunday which were Texans/Eagles and Chiefs/Bengals. Since I do not have a ridiculously large plasma screen with picture in picture, watching multiple games at the Silva house consists of switching the channel back and forth between action. We just happened to switch back to the Chiefs game right before the play where Richard Gray rolled out of the pocket and scrambled for the first down. In the words of grandma Frances, “and then disaster struck.” Usually when someone gets blown up or gets hurt in the Silva household you will hear several comments along the lines of …”Funny!” or “what a wussy!” “you’re fine girl” (see Robaire Smith) but right when I saw the Trent Green hit, I knew it was vicious. No penalty was called on the play, and after watching it a couple of times it, although ridiculously hard, it looked clean. Herm Edwards said it looked like a helmet-to-helmet shot from his vantage point a few yards away, but then said he had been advised not to comment on the officials' call. But defensive end Tamba Hali said referee Larry Nemmers told him no penalty was called because Gathers was airborne and unable to stop himself. "This league is supposed to protect the quarterback," said Hali, shaking his head. "The comment from the ref was he was in the air. You can't have helmet-to-helmet because you can't control yourself in the air. But at least a call should have been made." I wonder if Hali would have felt the same way if he had knocked out Carson Palmer? Anyway, get well soon Trent Green.

Week One Photo Fun

A soldier's return



Two words. Aye pobrecito! That asian is lucky though.


Very rude. Limo looks like he crapped his pants on this one.


Speaking of pants, Richard Gray's must have said "death to whoever wears these"


Maybe you wouldn't throw an int every other pass if you tried throwing standing up!


Remember when the Little Giants did "pitch to Johnny" then Johnny's dad was in the endzone so he scored? Well it's like that but instead of Leftwich's dad I think he saw a vendor selling food. (by the way in case you haven't noticed, I am using humor to cover up my pain)


Two me's.


Mike Bell goes airborne.


If Plax had that old Earl Campbell tear-away jersey, he could've scored!

Tracking the Young Bucks

Here is an update on how some freshmen studs did Saturday.


PERCY HARVIN, WR, Florida – 4 receptions for 99 yds including a 58 yard bomb for a TD. Also 2 carries for 11 yds.

CHRIS WELLS, RB, Ohio St - 5 carries for 17 yds.

MATT STAFFORD, QB, Georgia - 8 of 19 for 171 yds and 3 ints. Also 2 carries for 34 yds. Stafford stepped in for starting quarterback Joe Tereshinski, who injured his right ankle on the team's first series. Tereshinski will have the ankle examined again before the coaches decide how serious the injury is.

CJ SPILLER, RB, Clemson - 5 carries for 31 yds. Also 3 catches for 82 yds including a short dump pass which Spiller caught and then broke several tackles on the right side before cutting across the field and sprinting down the left sideline for the 82-yard touchdown.

TIM TEBOW, QB, Florida - 6 of 9 passing for 81 yds and 1 int. Also 9 carries for 62 yds for a 6.9 avg.

DIMITRI NANCE, RB, Arizona St – 5 carries for 21 yds.

BARRON BATCH, RB, Texas Tech – 2 carries for 7 yds. Also 2 receptions for 6 yds.

MICAH JOHNSON, MLB, Kentucky – Johnson is listed second on the teams depth chart at middle backer on UK’s website, but he made his first start yesterday against Chase Wasson and Texas State. The Wildcats won 41-7 and the defense held the visiting Bobcats to 210 yards -- only 55 on the ground. Is that a coincidence that the defense stepped their game up the first week that I started? I think you know the answer to that one…


MYRON ROLLE, ROVER, Florida St – Rolle only saw 2 plays on defense Saturday because the ‘Noles couldn’t put away the Demarcus Wares. Rolle has been moved up to 2 on the depth chart and with more experience will surely be an impact player. He was named defensive newcomer of the year by the coaches at the end of summer and yes he is really listed as rover for his position.

ANDRE SMITH, OL, Alabama – We all know lineman don’t have any stats to report but here is one for you. Did you know that last week against Hawaii, Smith became the seventh true freshman to start the season-opening game for Alabama since freshmen became eligible in 1972. Yes, you heard correct, that king already starts at left tackle. Here is what ‘Bama coach Mike Shula had to say about this beast. “He’s a big guy that doesn’t play - plays quicker than maybe a lot of guys his size,” Shula said. “He can change directions, he’s not stiff for a big guy. He’s a good pass protector, and he has size and reach. He’s got a lot of things going for him physically and he’s working hard to get the most out of it.”

Our Picks

Pete's Pick:

I think the Texas D will shut down Ted Ginn and co. Ohio States defense just isn't good enough to hang with Jamal Charles, Limas Sweeed, Billy Pittman and crew. I say Texas wins 28-17.

Phil's Pick:

Well Ohio State seemed to struggle last week with Garrett Wolfe. So I think, Jamal Charles can have a field day. Also, Gene Chizik's D should be able to contain Troy Smith. And I dont see Teddy Ginn geting behind the Texas D.
Texas wins 31-20.

Quick Hits




Ludacris just gained more fame by being a "team player."

The Cowboys must fear the Jags temp more than we thought. They announced that they will be wearing their special Air-Cooled Shoulder Pads from TMS. And yes, I think Bill Bates advertises for them.

The Tennessee Titans have announced their 2006 team captains. They are as follows: P Craig Hentrich, LB Keith Bulluck, DE Kyle Vanden Bosch, and C Kevin Mawae. Pretty punishing if you ask me.

The Ironheads tried to trade a 3rd round pick for Donnie Edwards. Obviously, GM A.J. Smith declined it.

Ryan Howard is a Beast!

I will be the first to admit I am not the biggest baseball fan, but even I cannot resist giving props to Ryan Howard. Consider it kingness recognizing kingness. Howard hit his 55th and 56th homeruns of the season against the Marlins Friday. Maybe the most impressive thing about Howard is that even with 80 walks this season, he's on pace to finish with 64 home runs and 159 RBI. Maybe it’s the fact that Howard has hit 12 home runs in 48 at-bats since Aug. 25. It could even be the fact that Howard has out-homered nine teams and hasn't gone more than seven at-bats without a home run during that span. But I have to say what really makes Howard’s performance at the plate so impressive is that he could potentially be the first man to pass Maris’ 61 homers (Home-uh) with the new steroid testing policy in place. I mean sure McGwire, Bonds, and Sosa hit more homeruns but that was before it came to light that sluggers were juicier than Biggie’s first single. I mean you can say what you want, even though the asterisk may not literally be next to their name in the record books, the mental asterisk is permanently etched into the minds of every baseball fan. With that being said I would like to be the first to say to Ryan Howard, it is now time to start juicin’. That’s right I said it. Ryan Howard needs to start taking steroids, HGH, the clear, anything. Howard, call up Victor Conte, get a hold of Greg Anderson, do something to start pumpin’ that unnatural testosterone into your body. Why you ask? Well if this beast is on pace to jack 64 homers clean, can you imagine what he would do on ‘roids? (or Balco as cute people refer to it) I mean 64 clean has to equate to…oh, I don’t know, at least 100 when you’re pumped up! I mean can you imagine it, forget McCovey Cove, fans would have to be in their kayaks in the Pacific Ocean for Howard’s homers! You think you are gonna be able to snag a Ryan Howard home run ball by sitting in the upper deck? You better rent a Cessna son and fly just outside the stadium if you want to catch a juiced Ryan Howard ball! So there, Ryan Howard if you’re reading this, I don’t need to be personally thanked. (Actually it’ll be our little secret) All I ask is that when you hit homerun number 146 and officially double the previous record, that you do one thing. You must deny anything to do with any type of performance-enhancing drug. You have to take it to your grave that you never “knowingly” took anything illegal. After all, you wouldn’t want to taint the game of baseball now would you?

Football Friday Night Scores and Notes

Here are some scores of notable games from Friday.

Pittsburgh 33 - Cincinnati 15. By the way Bo, this is college just in case you were wondering how the Steelers were so good to win back to back nights.

High School games:
Southlake Carroll 49 – Richardson Lake Highlands 13. Young Dodge had 340 total yards and threw for 5 touchdowns. An okay night for the Dragons…more here.

South Grand Prairie 50 - Mansfield Summit 36. Somehow I beat me? Or did I lose to myself? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m referring to the number one and number three ranked players in Texas. Go google Tray Allen and John Chiles. Then go here to read about the game.

Keller 42 - Weatherford 21. Hmmm…I remember some genius saying something about the Kangaroos not being that great of a team…also something about their lame middle school plays not working nearly as well after teams saw film of them…who was that again that said that…

Euless Trinity 28 - Tyler Lee 19. I really don’t have anything to say about this game. Oh wait…HAKA!!!

3-5A District Rundown:
Lubbock Monterery 42 – A-high 16. I personally witnessed this one. The Plainsmen had 335 rushing yards on the Eagles. That is not a type-o, they really ran through the Eagle defense for 335 yards! Can someone say Junior Ortegon at MLB?

El Paso Coronado 39 – Midland 23.

Odessa Permian 42 – Amarillo Tascosa 17

Midland Lee 20 – Wichita Falls Rider (4A) 13

Wolfforth Frenship (4A) 38 – Odessa 14.

The kings were off, this week. Excuse me Spradlin, they had a “bye.”
Speaking of the great Coogs, there is a new post up at the Cougar blizog about good ole’ Marty Secord and how his squad is doin’. Check it out at the link in the right column.

Texas Moves Up to Numero Dos


New AP rankings are out and Texas has moved up to Number 2. Miami fell to 17 after stinking it up against the 'Noles Monday night. Notre Dame fell to 4 after struggling with Calvin Johnson Saturday night. So the showdown is set for Saturday when Ohio St comes to Austin to take on the defending National Champs.This is the first time since 1996 that the top two teams in the AP poll will meet in a regular-season game. The last time Austin hosted a #1 ranked opponent was in 1969 when #1 ranked Arkansas came to Tejas and got their rears handed to them as Texas rolled to the National Championship. Looks like history is repeating itself. Here are the top 25 in the AP poll.

1. Ohio State (39) 1-0 1,568
2. Texas (7) 1-0 1,453
3. USC (3) 1-0 1,410
4. Notre Dame (8) 1-0 1,408
4. Auburn (3) 1-0 1,408
6. West Virginia (5) 1-0 1,356

Sergio Kindle Update

Recently there has been a lot of speculation as to when I am going to get some PT and have the chance to dominate everything on the field. Unfortunately doing some research I have come across some very disappointing news. At first I was dreadfully scared when Kindle wasn’t even listed on Texas depth chart. Further research has revealed the reason. Kindle suffered a high ankle sprain the second day of August camp and has been out ever since. There is no timetable on Kindle's return, but Coach Mack Brown said "he's making progress". Thankfully there is depth at linebacker with men such as the great Rodderick Muckelroy who personally shut down ole “uggggh” man during the Fiesta Bowl. At first there was speculation that Kindle might be red-shirted and then he would be guaranteed to miss this entire year. Coach Brown says that he will not make that decision until at least October. Obviously Coach Brown wants Sergio out there asap. Please pray this king gets well soon as he will surely contribute the minute he steps on the field. I am still trying to figure out how you can sprain gold. Anyway, here is a newsclip about Kindle’s injury and you can at least lust after him doing some drills.

News and Notes - The Hellish Conditions of Alltell Stadium

It has been reported that Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio will make the Cowboys wear their blue jerseys on Sunday because Del Rio thinks it will give his team an advantage. Del Rio’s reasoning is that it will be so hot in Jacksonville Sunday that by having to wear dark colors the Cowboys will be A) uncomfortable B) dehydrated 3) their skin will melt. Okay, I have no idea what Del Rio’s reasoning is. Sure we all know that if you wear darker colors in the sun, it’s somewhat hotter than light colors but can it make that much difference? Hey Coach Del Rio, their jersey’s are blue not wool with long sleeves. They are a darker color not lined with goose-down. (The ‘Boys will strangle Leftwich’s fat goose-neck but that’s another story.) I guess the Jags fear the Cowboys sooo much they are trying to get every advantage they can. When you look at it that way, then I guess I don’t blame them.

C.J. Leak, better known as Chris’s older brother, is a Robbie Nelson. C.J. started out as a quarterback at Wake Forest, then went to Tennessee, where he couldn’t win the QB job. Leak then moved to safety for Tennessee and now he is playing TE for the Bills. I guess you could argue he is versatile, but I am still wondering what the Bills are thinking.

Adam Schefter, of the NFL Network, reports none of the teams in the NFL put in a waiver claim for free agent WR Charles Rogers (Lions). Gee, I wonder why?

Here is just one more reason why the Hitos (my fantasy football team) got their league sewed up.

Someone please tell me if this makes any sense. Joe Gibbs thinks that having a number “2” quarterback means that you actually have to play two QB’s.

Nolia Clap!



Florida State defeated Miami 13-10 Monday night.

In a defensive struggle, in which many thought Miami had the edge, the Noles shined. In all of football history, has a team ever rushed for 2 yards and won? Seriously 2 yards! Hell, Miami had 3 yards.

During the 1st half, the Canes outgained FSU 100 yards to 38 yards. But in the 2nd, it was a complete turn around. FSU gained 134 yards to the Canes' 12 yards. Both teams struggled to find a steady offense, but FSU had the stingier D, which led them to victory.

My MVP of this game would have to be FSU defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews. He had a great game plan that crushed the Canes' run game, and limited Kyle Wright to 130 yards passing. Congrats to Coach Bobby Bowden and his squad for shutting up "Da U" for one more year. Now they can continue their quest to the ACC Title and eventually an NCAA Title (if they can beat Texas which would be a kick a$$ game).

Now Bo owes me 1$ and Situ owes me 5$ and a sharpshooter

STATS:

Passing: Drew Weatherford- 16/32 174 yards
Rushing: Antone Smith- 8 car. 4 yards
Recieving: De'Cody Fagg- 3 rec. 59 yards

UFC 62 - Chuck Liddel vs Renato Babalu Sobral


I'll admit I forgot about UFC 62. It went down last Saturday, Aug 26th. The card included Forest Griffin vs Stefan Bonner and the main event was Liddell vs Sobral. You can read about the Liddell/Sobral fight here or heck you can just watch the main event here.

The quality of the video isn't the best, but you get the idea. Just another exclusive from your friends at Silva Sportz.

News and Notes - Bush Breaks Leg, Roethlisberger Out for Opener


Louisville running back Michael Bush has broken his leg and ended his season. Nice action shot of the actual tibia snapping above.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is out for Thursday night's season opener against the 'Fins and possibly longer after having emergency surgery for an appendectomy. Charlie Batch gets the start in week one, no word on how long Big Ben will be out.

Chargers LB Steve Foley shot three times in front of his casa.

No one hurt on this one, but Ron Dayne is supposed to sign wit da Texans.

NFL Final Roster Cuts

It’s that time of the year again. Cut day has arrived. All NFL teams must have their rosters slashed down to 53 men by 5:00 PM Central today, Saturday the 2nd. Since many teams still have as many as 70 players on their team as recently as this last week, look for some interesting moves to be made and some significant names to be given the pink slip.

News and Notes - Leinart Hurt and Charles Rogers Just Now Realizing He is Crappy



Patrick Chukwurah put the hurt on Leinart last night, literally.
-------------------------
The ‘Boys have locked up Romo.
-------------------------
The quote of the day comes from Lions WR Charles Rogers after the Lions lost their third straight preseason game with Rogers only contributing one catch. Rogers believes he will be cut by the Lions before Saturday when NFL rosters have to be cut down to the final 53 players. After the game he gave his jersey away to some kid.
Yeah, that's what I did, I thought it was time," Rogers said. "That's what I wanted to do. I thought it was time for me to do that. You know, we'll wait until Saturday but it don't look pretty. It would be hard for me to believe I'm still here after what just happened in this situation. I'd say my days are numbered." You can read the rest here.
I’ll admit I almost felt sorry for Rogers after hearing him put it that way. I said almost. Then I came to my senses and remembered he is a crappy player who never should have been drafted #2 overall. Oh yeah, and gain collarbones, Mr. Glass!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Brooks Bollinger’s a Viking. Does anyone care?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sadly, Teddy Lehman isn’t putting his best foot forward.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When Sammy Morris deciding on taking steroids, I’m sure he thought two things: “These steroids will make me a feared, all-pro running back and I’ll never get caught.” Unfortunately for Sammy, he was wrong about both.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Finally, the Cowboys had a chance to win their final preseason game last night to go 4-0 heading into the regular season. Instead Vanderjagt missed two easy kicks that could have won the game so the ‘Boys had to settle for the tie. I just want to publicly take the time now to say, Vanderjagt you suck. You’re gay, gay, gay. You better get your stuff together. What might bother me more than Vanderjagt missing the kicks was what he said after the game.
“It will be fine, it's just preseason. I have the ability to turn it on when it counts." No you don’t loser, last time it counted you missed it by a mile. If you are still bothered by that miss against Pittsburgh, then go find Scott Norwood and cry together, otherwise step yo game up or Shaun Suisham will get your Super bowl ring.
