Michael's Weekend Warriors
Ladies and gentlemen, here is another awe inspiring edition of Weekend Warriors. Let's get to the winners and losers of the week.
Best Team of the Week
In a league full of parity, it is hard to picture the Seattle Seahawks repeating as Superbowl champions. However, for one week they looked to be in championship form as they took out the Arizona Cardinals by a score of 19-3. Granted, I think if Carlson Palmer was healthy the Cardinals would have been better offensively but it was still a good win for the Seahawks.
Worst Team of the Week
The Jets are a awful team. On Monday, the nightmare season for Rex Ryan and the Jets got worse as they lost 38-3 to the Buffalo Bills. The offense was bad, the defense was put in bad situations time and time again, making it impossible to establish some momentum. Hopefully the Jets can get better for next season at least even a little better.
Best Player of the Week
It's about time Shady McCoy got on the list. LeSean McCoy rushed for 130 yards on 21 carries with a touchdown. Statically there may have been better performances, however, his performance was the main reason why the Philadelphia Eagles dominated the Tennessee Titans. With the Cowboys having a great season, wins like this are needed to stay in the playoff picture.
Worst Player of the Week
It hurts my soul to say this one, but the Legend Michael Vick is the worst player of the week. It was actually saddening seeing Michael Vick unable to get it going against the Bills. Granted the Jets offensive line is a joke, but that still did not take away from the fact he was not good on Monday night.
Game of the Week
I actually liked the Kansas City Chiefs versus the Oakland Raiders for one reason and one reason only. The Raiders won the game and it honestly looked like they won a Superbowl from the reaction of the coaching staff.
Surprise of the Week
I really did not think that by this point of the season, their would be so many playoff races. Every division but the AFC south and AFC east are tight. Yes that includes the NFC south where every team has a losing record but are still in it. This means we are going to get everything football fans dream regular season event, all out playoff race wars.
One last thought, will Demarco Murray reach 2000 yards. The season is not getting any younger and he needs about 650 yards more. That will be interesting to watch.
