This weekend in sports was fairly slow.
As we await the #1vs2 matchup between LSU and Alabama, it was a somewhat boring day of College Football. Georgia vs. Florida was the best game of the weekend. Jake Fromm looked like a stud and Georgia got a huge W on the road.
The Baltimore Ravens beat the New England Patriots 38-27 this weekend. The Patriots struggled but held in tough. Lamar Jackson is very good.
The Cleveland Browns are surprisingly bad, for once. After so many years of expecting mediocrity, we are faced with the truth that we are somewhat surprised by the Browns for not winning in 2019. Odell Beckham is a clown and it’s a constant media circus everywhere he goes.
AND THEN Jermaine Whitehead takes to twitter to incite violence against someone criticizing his play! He was then cut by the team on Monday morning. WARNING: NSFW
I almost forgot this happened.
Korkmaz has had his struggles this season, but hitting a game-winner definitely gives him a chance to hang around the rotation a bit longer. Also, the Sixers are an excellent basketball team. That Portland game happens a year ago and they fall apart. Really impressive to see them fight back and steal a W on the road.
Some NFL Quick hits:
Eagles’ offense was great but need to get ball downfield. Obviously having Desean not play has hurt, and he couldn’t do much today. Disaster second half.
Bears’ offense is vanilla and Trubisky still can’t handle it. Found a spark late but never got a chance late to tie it.
Bills offense much sharper this week, albeit against the Redskins. Got the run game going.
Redskins are very bad. Ownership is the problem. Paul Allen can’t put together an NFL caliber roster. Dan Snyder won’t make necessary coaching hiring/firing decisions.
Colts obviously got off to fast start this season but the last two weeks the offense hasn’t clicked, and defense can only do so much. Brissett injured, Hoyer looked good. We’ll see if he can carry that into next week.
Minkah Fitzpatrick is looking like a genius move by the Steelers with every passing game. He is a straight playmaker. Especially in clutch situations. 96-yard pick 6.
The Chiefs, what a gritty win. Without Mahomes, it isn’t easy, but Moore stepped up to win the game. The offense really looked good for most of that game. Give credit where credit is due.
Panthers against Titans. McCaffery so good. MVP in my book. Singlehandedly willing the Panthers to wins this year.
DOLPHINS WIN! The Jets have been absolutely horrid since they beat the Cowboys. Darnold looks really bad. Pick in the RedZone was awful. Adam Gase is gone. They should consider drafting Tua.
See ya next weekend. Podcast 5 releasing Thursday.
