NFL week in review

Oh, what a good weekend it was. For one, the Bears did not lose,which means I can be happy. For two, Griese did not win so I can hate him even more! And for three, the entire NFL decided to stop playing run defense, something the Bears have been doing all season long.


And if I wasn't in a deep depression over the Bears being in last I may have enjoyed this EVEN MORE.

-He still ain't Barry Sanders... yet. But Adrian Peterson is perhaps the most frighteningly good running back in the NFL since Barry. Oh, but only if he would have shown some of this talent in college, mayhap he would have been picked above #7! Wait, he almost (and should have), won the Heisman as a freshman? WELL WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!
-Also, because I am in no way shy about tooting my own horn, I did say before the draft that AD was the #2 player available behind Calvin Johnson. BITCH.

-Oh yeah, and these guys did okay too, I guess:
  • Marshawn Lynch: 29 carries, 153 yards, 1 TD
  • Warrick Dunn: 27 carries, 100 yards, 1 TD
  • Joseph Addai: 26 carries, 112 yards/ 5 catches, 114 yards, 1 TD
  • Clinton Portis: 36 carries, 196 yards, 1 TD
    • Ladell Betts: 9 carries, 64 yards
  • Ernest Graham: 34 carries, 124 yards, 1 TD
  • Lendale White: 31 carries, 100 yards, 1 TD
  • Ron Fuckin Dayne: 21 carries, 122 yards, 1 TD
- Devin Hester is getting more pissed every second. Not only is he not getting kicked to, getting hung out to dry by Griese, and killing every woman he sleeps with because within his seed lies the presence of God: now his record is broken, too. Antonio Cromartie returns a kick 109 yards for a TD, and holy shit was it 109 yards:

make that 109 7/8 yards. This was really a double dipper for me, because if Antonio's last name represents the high school where Freddie Mercury, a purple gorilla, and a robot that thinks it's human attend: then he is one of my favorite players.

-Derek Anderson is acting
eerily similar to Drew Brees when Philip Rivers was drafted, and I have a sneaky suspicion that it will end the same way, with Anderson being let go and the Ravens picking him up (the horror... th horror... for Browns fans...).

-----Power Rankings to come on the 'morrow, for now enjoy Devin Hester as we all do (and a pleasant reminder that Duke just CAN NOT tackle:
