 BOOM

By GJ McRae

NFL free agency has begun players and fans have been blind sided like a cobra safety blitz.

Unlike the golden age of football many teams have parted ways with there poster players to save the financial boom so to speak. Making cap room for younger stronger players or to fill several key positions for bargin prices.

These is just clearing the way for another boom wave as players take the guarantee dollars upfront for two years of services.  Imagine if the workforce operated as such you get half a years salary upfront in hopes of become a franchise employee restructuring your salary to bring in a better quicker workforce.

Wonders of  Thinking

By GJ McRae

Today I want to take a step back and reflect on how the game and the world has changed before our eyes so quickly, Detroit has the best record in football halfway through the season, M.Vick is playing remarkable football but the eagles’ defense isn’t . MNF has a new theme song, the redskins are winning, and the colts are not.

And Obama is compared to Hitler; these are some of things that have turned the world on its ear as a society we are not noticing the state of the economy is free falling. The presidential administration has kept them in tact fighting the bull rush of many disappointed Americans while congress has several sessions of non-related issues while trying to keep the government running.

As fans we search for answers as to why what and where as Americans we scratch our heads and say oh well there is always a scape goat in the midst of confusion so who has become that person.

Under the snap

by GJ McRae

Miami are the winlesswonders  after a close one with the Browns C. Henne(Henny) tossed 19 passes for 255 yards and 1 touchdown.

B.Hartline(4 catches, 87 yds) D.Bess(5 catches, 52yds)along with a ground attack lead by D.Thomas(23carries, 95yds),R.Bush(11carries, 24yds).

Field goals and ball controlled kept it close but defensively there were no stops.  Where is the over and under secondary coverage, the ends and backs  have to run more stunt cover packages. But the dolphin defense needs more cover prevention for late yard gains and deep pass threats.

66,000 brown hounds watch C. McCoy(Gunslinger) shoot 19passes hitting his targets for 210yds 2 touchdowns,  B.Watson(5 catches,64yds)

J.Cribbs(3catches,49yds), M.Hardesty (14carriers, 67yds. Cleveland has a strong front that targets ball movement  hitting the gaps for earlystops for big yard gains by the offense.  Cleveland’s  young  gamblers are not afraid to go for it all to get a late winning touchdown or  field goal.

A team is only as good as there execution regardless of who is under center in the case of the colts there was no preparation looking down the road green bay, New England took action early and it paid off.  Philly is seeing a mental  toughness  a man who has been redeemed and will risk it all to silence the doubters.  Life is about moving forward  silencing those who say” you can’t do it “or” it will never work” but with a plan in motion you can
do above and beyond, with the year coming to a close is Washington executing a new game plan are they under center for a new strategy.

Money Weaks

By GJ McRae

M.Vick(Vick the victorious) launched 19 passes for 242 yards while spreading his
wings to fly for 25 yards, he hit J.Maclin(13catches, 171yds, 2touchdowns) B.Celek(4catches, 43yds)
L.McCoy(18carries, 85yds). The eagled ream team can get the job done with a mixed power running and post routes and
slant passes, Vick has to stay healthy and remain in the pocket he got some
good looks in the past two games too sure hand receivers. Staying in the hunt defensively is a question
but the line is improving each week and could surprise many.

M.Ryan(Money Matt) 17 passes 195 yards every dollar was
caught with no change left T.Gonzalez(7 catches, 83yards, 2 touchdowns) R.White(2cathes, 23 yards, 1 touchdown) M.Turner (21 carries, 114yards).

Poise and execution has become a falcontrademark the last two games rayn has been looking for the sure pass and
connects moving the chains for quick scores.

R.Fitzpatrick (FlyinRyan) completed 28 passes covering 264
yards of Orchard Park sixty-eight thousand plus cheered S.Johnson (8catches, 96yards 1 touchdown)
D.Nelson(10catches, 83 yards, 1 touchdown), F.Jackson( 15carries, 117yards, 2 touchdowns).

The basement is not an option for the bills with strong
performances in two weeks testing is coming quickly in the weeks to come.

J.Campell(Say Jay) served everything chunky for his wideouts 23 completions for 323 yards
D.Moore( 5catches 146 yards 1touchdown),
D.Mcfadden(20 carries, 70 yards, 7catches,70 yards 1 touchdown) was the complete package in this loss.

The raider offense has better pocket presence for Campbell adding a scrambling touchdown helping
his own cause, there is more control in the huddle this year on both sides of
the ball there line pressure is light creating secondary trouble in the open field.

A bright spot of interest Tony Romo comes back to energizes
the cowboys, Cammie Newtron has jaws dropping. And the economy while on life
support has a proposed bill that could make a pulse on Wall Street and hope
street by increasing taxes for fortunate Americans, a bright and revolutionary
ideal but a long time in the making. Wealthy big business has overlooked the
little people for years but how much is too much where should the trimming begin
and end.

For the Ages

By G J McRae

Saints & Packers blew the season open in front of
70,000 combining for 731 passing yards, 184 rushing, D.Brees (easy brezzy)
completed 32 passes hitting D.Henderson (6 catches 100yds),M. Colston (6 catches 81yds),                                                                                                                                            M.Ingram (13carries 40yds), P. Thomas (5 carries, 31yds). New Orleans objective is to hit
the end zone with every possession wide out spreads and dreads will stumble
several teams secondary coverage creating lead feet corners and ineffective
blitz packages scoring is key for the saints to control games and a strong
stand on defense.

A.Rodgers (Aaron the mighty) hammered 27 passes
striking G. Jennings (7 catches 89yds)  J. Nelson (6catches77yds) J. Starks (12 carries 57yds),R.Grant (9carries 40yds).

The track packfocused on the run defensively D.Bishop along with M.Burnett blew up the saints
running game. Green bay defense will control games for the offense to crunch
and munch the clock for a fast track winning games.

C.Newton(CammieNewtron) took to the skies with 24 passes for 422 yards

S.Smith(8 catches178yds) G.Olsen (4 catches 78yds).

The panthers stalked the ground very little in this game D.Williams (12 carries 30yds)

A strong d line could keep the panthers in the hunt for redemption but secondary concerns will
keep the Patient prowl offense on its toes searching for points to build a
solid lead in hopes of holding out for a three and out defensive sequence.

K.Kolb(Kevinthe Kid) accurate eye threw 18 passes for 309 yards E.Doucet (3catches 105yds),
L.Fitzgerald(3catches62yds) there was no cardinal take off with

B.Wells(18 carries90yds),  Arizona has found out how to win
with accuracy and execution hooks and looks cause confusion, with a strong line
and over coverage in the secondary containing wide outs in close games.

Victorious Vick, Cammie Newtron, Rock star Romo, Rexxi and the Jets have given Football a spectacular
opening. Looking forward you can only imagine is something epic unfolding before
our very eyes. Just as the Presidential address we heard days ago urging
politicians to move this country forward a rally cry for more productive as a
nation something epic for generations to talk about. A salute to our  service men and women from

Pure Potential

By GJ McRae

Free enterprise a spirit of self-promotion not in the board rooms in strip clubs
and college campuses, passionate college sports supporter showing love
for a job well done with a night out. This glimpse into footballs glory road has a route
called broken dreams, every investigation leads to a financial bomb TV revenue, blue chip recruits,
scholarships, enrollment, and academic funding lost. College is about memories
and good times how you make them within the scope of the rules is your business
what happens off campus stays of campus. Should a University face death for minor violations what is considered great or minor depends on the school and the players, USC know as bankroll U
has new allegations of pay for play and faced lesser sanctions when caught
while Miami is looking at death for lesser.

The NFL is capitalizing on this farm system we watch these players every Saturday then on Sunday
to see them excel to pro greatness, is there a resolve for such a thing having roundtables with individuals with careers couldn’t fathom the temptations, violations only come out when someone makes a mistake or defaults on a promise. If the lockout loomed the NCAA would have stepped up their efforts for power with Sunday games and Monday battles, college teams with solo networks are minimizing the revenue for the NCAA.

Potential we all have it to be greater with the economy in a spiral with no answer to many questions where is the potential in government will they form their own network dare to be different try a new approach let a
little go to get more.

     Teams were waiving  like kids on a bus to summer camp this week but why the new labor agreement gives owners advantage hurting small market teams looking to get  big names at basement pricesincreasing there talent pool .  The market dried up quickly with sign and trade deals with in days while a few players are doing the contract  two-step for better deals the wait is what will sell football this year,  a short training camp along with a                        pre season allowing  less time for evaluations and team chemistry. NFPLA could have held for a better deal college football would have generated millions with this lock out looming which would have cornered the owners and forced my security for current and future players.  James Harrison lead a solo effort for a stand-off  but as a lone wolf stood alone,  a class action lawsuit filed by selected players  sent a sweep of divisions quickly.  This bargaining agreement lacked unity owners needed players fans needed football which owners can’t play in this equation the  NFPLA had an advantage and  blew it .
