After the New England Patriots gut wrenching loss to the New York Giants last night, star tight end Rob Gronkowski and tackle Matt Light coped with the loss like so many others would have. Dancing topless at a club. With LMFAO.
At the Patriots post Super Bowl party at the ironically named Victory Field, the Patriots partied as if they had won the Super Bowl. LMFAO, Maroon 5, and Steven Tyler all performed.
When LMFAO took the stage, Gronkowski and Light joined them and ripped out their shirts and dancing to the seemingly awful music that LMFAO produce.
Rob Gronkowski had a great year, no question about it, but he has a lot of growing up to do.
No word on what coach Bill Belichick has to say, but I'm guessing he isn't to thrilled.
Two unnamed Baltimore Ravens have said that kicker Billy Cundiff was distracted and unprepared before what was supposed to be a game tying kick. They also said that the Ravens coaches were yelling at him.
Cundiff was practicing his kicks on the sideline, unaware of the Ravens driving down the field into field goal range. Cundiff was reportedly called upon six times and coaches became "furious" because he was unready.
Cundiff has received death threats from many Ravens fans since the missed kick.
The NFL's Week 10 is just about over (Okay it is over, Monday Night's game is going to be a stinker) and there are things to take away for it and things to learn. I will go over each game in short responses. So here we go.
Norv Turner's seat just went from hot to 5 alarm fire. The AFC West has become this year's NFC West.
Never count out Belichick and Brady. Jets continue to underachieve and Sanchez is still overrated.
PUNT THE BALL!
The Steelers' defense finally showed up and in the most opportune time. Could this be the end of the Bengals this season?
It always something for the Browns and note to Coach Shurmur: defenses do win championships, but you do need an offense as well.
Midnight just about struck for Fitzpatrick and the Bills. Cowboys surprisingly still alive.
Good news Colts fans, you have a bye next week. Just six more games, Colts.
Look like you can win with a quarterback who can't throw. Also, Kansas City seriously, with Denver's offensive strategy you still didn't predict they would run.
Congrats Miami, you won your first game at home in seven tries, now there is no way you get Andrew Luck now.
The Eagles once again prove my theory: The Eagles are HIGHLY OVERRATED. Andy Reid's seat is ingulfed in flames, but then again it is every year.
Houston has the best record in the AFC? Good for them. I still don't trust them.
Welcome back, Chris Johnson! Wherever have you been?
Will the real Seahawks or Ravens please stand up?
Don't look now, but here come the Bears, even without Cutler playing well.
The Niners are in fact for real and looks like Eli Manning can't win them all.
Well that's it for my brief synopsis of the week that was in the NFL. Next week has some big games, Cincinnati will prove if they are for real when they play the Ravens. The Eagles go into MetLife Stadium to try get back on track and beat the NFC East leading Giants and will the Chargers end there horrendous skid when they face he red hot Bears? Until next week, folks.
Albert Haynesworth have been claimed off waivers by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to sources.
The New England Patriots had put the much maligned defensive tackle on waivers yesterday. Teams had until 4PM today to claim Haynesworth.
Tampa Bay has a need for defensive lineman with Gerald McCoy out for the season with a torn bicep. The Bucs also signed former Buffalo Bill defensive tackle John McCargo.
Haynesworth was a non-factor for the Patriots defense this season only making three tackles in six games played.
Albert Haynesworth is on the market again. The New England Patriots waived the much maligned tackle Monday afternoon.
Haynesworth was benched for more than 20 minutes during the Patriots loss to the New York Giants on Sunday. Reports were stating that Haynesworth and Patriots defensive line coach Pepper Johnson got into a heated exchange during the game. The Patriots deny that was what caused them to waive Haynesworth.
New England acquired Haynesworth from the Washington Redskins for a fifth round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Haynesworth only had three tackles in just six games with New England.
Teams have until 4PM tomorrow to claim Haynesworth.
The season is halfway through and we are now starting to see who the pretenders are and the contenders are. Now I am ready to give out my midseason NFL awards, I haven't thought up a name for them yet. After consulting the writers at The Mark Graham Sports Blog, I have come up with the winners and they are:
There was one of two players I was considering for this award, Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. I ultimately decided on Rodgers because he simply is the best player in the NFL. Period. The Packers are at 8-0 and he is having a career year. Rodgers is completing 72.5 percent of his passes and leads the NFL in touchdown passes with 24. Fred Jackson is a huge reason the Bills are tied atop the AFC East, but Rodgers is THE reason the Packers are 8-0.
Notable Mentions: Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson
Notable Mentions: Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees
The San Francisco 49ers appear to have turned their ship around and are finally playing well again. Patrick Willis is a huge reason why. Willis has 67 tackles, one sack, three forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. Willis has become the leader and this 49er defense. The 49ers are in the top ten in total defense and without Willis in the lineup they drop down considerably and might not lead the awful NFC West.
Notable Mentions: Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Ware, Green Bay Packers CB Charles Woodson
A lot has been said about Cam Newton and his great year, but being overshadowed is Bengals QB Andy Dalton. The Bengals are surprisingly tied atop the AFC North with the Baltimore Ravens. No one could have seen this coming at the beginning of the year. Dalton, a second round pick from TCU, was overlooked in the NFL Draft and is now making people pay for their mistakes. The Bengals now have a franchise quarterback in Andy Dalton and because of his play, the Bengals were willing to trade Carson Palmer for two 1st round picks to set the Bengals up for further success in the future.
Notable Mentions: Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton
Von Miller has lived up to his best defensive player in the Draft expectations. Miller is really the only thing going for the Broncos right now. He leads all rookies in sacks with 6.5 and has forced two fumbles. Miller is going to be the future of the Broncos defense, lets just hope Tim Tebow lives up to his expectations.
Notable Mention: San Francisco 49ers LB Aldon Smith
If anyone told you that the Bills would be tied for the AFC East lead halway through the year, you'd think they were crazy or a Bills fan (usually they are both). But Chan Gailey has turned this once hapless franchise around and are in a position to actually win the AFC East. The Bills came back and beat the Patriots and beat the Philadelphia Eagles, games once thought to be losses for the Bills when the season first started. Gailey was once considered to be on the hot seat in Buffalo, now is the toast of the town. Time will tell if they are a one hit wonder.
Notable Mentions: San Francisco 49er coach Jim Harbaugh, Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz
In 2010, Peyton Hillis broke out and became a star for the Cleveland Browns. He rushed for 1,177 yards and had 11 touchdowns. Hillis also became the cover boy for Madden NFL 12. The Browns had their future running back in Hillis. Now in 2012, Hillis has pulled a complete 180, he missed a game, on advice from his agent, because of strep throat, complained about his contract, lost his players support in the locker room, and was seen throwing balls from the goal post while he was supposedly injured. One Browns player said that Hillis was the locker room leader last season bringing so much energy to the team, but now is a pariah in the locker room. One has to wonder if fame got to his head.
Dishonorable Mention: Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson
Well that is all for the midseason awards and we will see if these winners keep the same pace throughout the second half of the season.
An arrest warrant was issued for free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens after failing to show up for a court hearing regarding child support payments.
Owens tried to reschedule the October 24 hearing due to his televised workout for NFL teams. However, no teams attended Owens' workout.
According to a spokesperson, Owens is looking for a new attorney and was representing himself while trying to change the hearing date. Owens now has new attorneys and will deal with the issue of the warrant later in the week.
Owens is trying to modify his child support payments. The payments were based on his salary with the Dallas Cowboys when he was making $12 million in 2007.
Owens, 37, is trying to latch onto an NFL team after undergoing knee surgery earlier in the year. He last played for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010, making 72 receptions for 983 yards and scoring nine touchdowns.
A third round pick by the 49ers out of Tennessee-Chattanooga, Owens has played for the 49ers, Eagles, Cowboys, Bills, and Bengals. He ranks sixth all-time in receptions with 1,078, second in receiving yards with 15,934, and tied for second, with Randy Moss, for touchdown receptions with 153.
New York Jets coach Rex Ryan will play a New England Patriots fan in an upcoming Adam Sandler movie.
Ryan plays a Patriots fan who is a lawyer that helps get Adam Sandler's character out of trouble. According to Sandler, Ryan plays the cheapest lawyer in town. Sandler, a Jets fan, had written the part before Rex Ryan was cast.
Apparently Ryan praises the work of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the movie. I'm also guessing, that he insults Rex Ryan in some way in a stupid and predictable tongue in cheek joke to the audience.
The movie is due out sometime in next summer and is expected to be critically panned, yet a big office hit. Also, the movie is expected to have Rob Schneider in some capacity.
Boston police are saying that New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman was arrested early Tuesday morning outside a Boston nightclub.
Police say Edelman was arrested outside a Boston nightclub and charged with indecent assault and battery. According to reports, Edelman is accused of groping a woman below the waist.
Edelman is scheduled to appear in Boston Munincipal Court later on Tuesday. Edelman was taken into custody and released on bail.
Edelman, former Kent State quarterback, has three receptions on the year for 25 yards and serves as the team's kickoff and punt returner.
The New England Patriots were not available for comment.
There has been great debate over whether or not Tim Tebow should be starting or why it took so long for him to start. If you ask me, I think the Broncos have some other reasons why Tebow is starting. I'm calling it a conspiracy. DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNN, dramatic reverb.
The Denver Broncos next game is at Miami with Tim Tebow starting. Now, Tebow was a three year starter at the University of Florida. This is a perfect time to start him because the fans will be absolutely on his side. It is a perfect PR move for the Broncos with Tebow making his first start of the season in his home start and create a groundswell for the Tebow era to start in Denver.
On the flip side, Denver is 1-4 only one game above Miami for second worst record in the NFL. The apparent first overall pick in next year's draft is Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck. If Denver loses to Miami it gives them a better chance to pick Luck and Luck is the best quarterback prospect since Broncos executive and hero John Elway. Also, both Luck and Elway attended Stanford. Denver would still be behind Indianapolis for worst record, but does anyone see the Colts drafting a quarterback with the first overall pick with Peyton Manning in town? I don't think so.
Is Tim Tebow the second coming of John Elway or his he another Bubby Brister? (look it up, kids) Only time will tell and Tebow gets his time this Sunday at Miami in front of pretty much a home crowd.
