Woodhead looked great, He also had a nice reception for 20 something yards that was called back. I find the Patriots score more when he is on the field, than when lawfirm is on the field. Welker was burning those corners for Miami.

I was predicting that Woodhead would be used more as a runner this year (the guy's an elite talent and BB wants to win another Superbowl above all else), and I think I'm going to be right. Woodhead is a shifty pass catcher in the flat, ala Darren Sproles or Reggie Bush, but he has a surprising- driving forward with power while scatting- style at his size when he runs. It is more like a Marshall Faulk or Priest Holmes in his prime. He is a great pass blocker as well. I stated during the lockout that I wouldn't be shocked, if DW got as many as 200 carries this season (he could even get more if he keeps up the pace of tonight, which would equal 224 on the season. BTW, I'd give Woody around 225-250 on the season if I were coach and BJGE about 150).

However, don't expect DW to have double the carries of Lawfirm- as he did tonight- every week. With BB it depends on matchups and what's working. Don't forget that although BB loves Woody, from what I've seen he seems to take a liking to BJGE as well.

Dang I wish I could have seen that! One thing though, I'm having trouble understanding this apparent caste-speak contradiction here. How does a "short" White man like Welker have such a high motor? I mean, it can't be that high, can it? If it is too far above his head, he won't be able to reach it and use it because everybody knows "White men can't jump." This one has me stumped! :confused:

I think most people don't get what a high motor is anyway. Is it supposed to be an anology to a motor in 5th gear that is cranking steadily and doesn't stop?

Either way, it was great to see Welker add the career long TD, and tie the NFL record, which was only the 12th 99 yard reception in NFL history.

It's always fun for me to predict Welker's stats based on early in the season. We all know that even nagging injuries, different defenses and other factors affect the productivity level, but if Welker continues at this pace he'll finish the season with 128 receptions, 2560 yards (which would be 700 yards more than the NFL record), 20 yards per catch, and 32 TDs (9 more than the NFL record).

Tom Brady's stats would be 512 completions on 768 attempts (66.7%), 64 TDs and 16 INTs.

Danny Woodhead's stats would be 224 carries, 1104 yards, 4.9 yards per carry, and 0 TDs (but we know that will change).

Tough J. Riggins,

I noticed the same thing about Woodhead, he is not only nimble on his feet, agile, quick and fast but he also runs with power to get the extra tough yards. I don't see that with Reggie Bush at all...its quite comical.

Tonight has been a good ending to week one...Brady's huge performance makes Newton an afterthought with his performance. Henne puts up an equal performance to Newton but nary a word will be said about that. I was glad to see Henne play well and connect a lot with Hartline and Fasano. I bet the Dolphins miss Edds now since Burnett who was brought in as a coverage TE and Gronkowski and Hernandez made the Dolphins defense look very bad. Hopefully Fox gets his head out of his ass and plays Tebow.

Nice show of leg power from the kicker who is proclaimed to have the strongest leg in NFL history. 63 yard FG from Sebastian Janikowski!

The updated news on Kevin Walter and Danny Amdendola's injuries is also good considering yesterday they were written off for the year.

Why don't they just put Tebow in...he can improvise and create on the run

I wonder if the Broncos will be forced to do what they don't want to do and play Tebow if they have a losing record near mid-season. Tebow is extremely popular with fans in Denver. I could hear the chants echoing throughout the stadium "We Want Tebow!" Orton is a very solid QB, but he doesn't break the game open like Tebow could.

Yea it blows my mind that vick can complete less than 50% of his passes and run for about 100 yds and proclaim that he played "lights out" and the media does nothing but praise him but Tebow gets chastised and crucified because he is not accurate enough. Such an obvious double standard.


Erick Decker 90 yd punt return!!!

Wow, Janikowski closes the half with a 63yd FG, and then Decker with a 90yd punt return on the Bronco's first possession of the 2nd half! How is this guy not an outside receiver, with that kind of size, speed and athleticism?

Rolando McClain, the first linebacker selected in the 2010 NFL Draft, was a big disappointment last year. And he's off to another less than scintillating start in 2011 -- 0 tackles, 1 assist, and a 15 yard personal foul penalty with 5 minutes left in the third quarter.

I've been watching McClain in this game because I had to use him as a last minute substitute in a fantasy league when David Hawthorne was made inactive, and he's awful. He still doesn't have a single solo tackle -- and he's a middle linebacker, the position that usually racks up the most tackles -- and has missed at least a half dozen tackle opportunities. The guy's terrible, but you can bet he will be immune from DWF and media criticism for his performance in this game.

ughh, this is an extraordinary amount of penalties, even for a coal bowl like this one.

Also, is it just me or is every entirely black defense somewhere in the range of bad to horrible?

Some nice receptions by Eric Decker. That he's not the starter over the pedestrian Eddie Royal is a joke. He's the total package at receiver, comparable skills to Larry Fitzgerald. And he also made a nice "overachieving" leap over RB Lance Ball after he scored!

Man I wish Hillis still played in the AFC West, the defensive play is getting worse. McFadden and Bush rush for 180 yards 5+ ypc with a qb that barely threw for a 100, I think when McFadden hit the 100 mark Campbell had like 38 passing yards. Then again, this same result probably could have happened against the Bengals had they kept running Hillis with power running plays, Benson was averaging 3 ypc and getting stuffed quite a bit and then wound up breaking off a big one at the very end to pad his stats.

On the other end, Orton throws for 300 and his team rushes for 38 yards 2.9 ypc, I wish this were a fair world, Tebow would at least be used as a halfback and would have more success than Blount did last year.

Didn't realize that Matt Giordano had an athletic INT in this game for OAK. It caps off a very nice week for White defenders. BTW, they weren't just busy making INTs, returning them for TDs, and recovering fumbles. They were also dishing out some hits. This particular one not only brought a smile to my face, but I'm sure it wiped out that stupid smile from Hines Ward's face as well:

Black quarterbacks went 2-4. Cam Newton put up good numbers, but of the other five black starters only Josh Freeman threw for over 200 yards, and a lot of that came in garbage time as the Lions were in control of the game from the beginning.

The dreadful Tarvaris Jackson managed 197 passing yards, Michael Vick threw for 187 yards, Jason Campbell barely managed to crack three figures with 105, while Donovan McNabb had a woeful, Akili Smith-like 39 yards passing for the Vikings. Those four combined had 11 more passing yards (528) than Tom Brady's 517 yards for the Patriots.

Sunday's games were king of frustrating but last night softened the blow. Shipley, Hillis, Walter, Daniels and a few other white offensive players didn't have great games.

there's people that want Tebow to start over Orton soon, and it sure looks like Decker is going to uproot Royal for a starting receiver position soon. now, that would be a Broncos team i can watch!

Some observations from Patriots-Dolphins…

With his 8 catch, 160-yard, 2 TD performance in Week 1, Wes Welker will only need to average 56 yards per game in the following 15 contests to achieve yet another 1,000-yard season. Welker has proved countless times that, despite his scarcity of skin melanin, he is capable of running deeper passing routes. Below is a photo of Welker stiff-arming Dolphins CB, Benny Sapp, and then easily sprinting past him on his way to an NFL-record 99.5-yard score…

9995388-large.jpg


But, to be fair, when a team possesses a loud-mouthed, infantile, show-boating, prop-using, self-absorbed, perpetually-disgruntled black attention-monger and VH1 reality show buffoon in the form of Chad “Ocho-Homo-Sexo,” well, what white receiver could possibly compete? The lass wearing “#85” had one trifling catch for 14 yards. Hopefully his woefulness will continue until he suffers the same fate of “Grandfather” Joey Galloway (released in October two seasons ago). Unfortunately, Matthew Slater (not Julian Edelman), a black special-teamer with undeniable straight-line speed, would likely be Ocho’s replacement.

The Patriots’ young LB, Dane Fletcher, got great pressure on Henne whenever he was allowed to play. He also made an incredibly dynamic solo tackle during an outside run by Reggie Bust that displayed his fantastic lateral speed and ferocious tackling power. The three parasitic dim-wits didn’t even mention Fletcher’s name during that particular play (and there was no instant replay). Why is Fletcher sitting behind the likes of Gary Guyton?

I noticed a (pre-conjured) Monday Night Football camera was comically placed in a room full of “celebrities” (Will Smith, Marc Anthony, and Dwayne Wade) pretending to be casual fans, pretending to have fun, pretending to laugh, and posing in some random “luxury suite” in Sun Life Stadium. The unfunny “actor,” Will Smith, ever the furtive Black Nationalist douchebag, sported a t-shirt which simply read “MUHAMMED ALI.”

Isn’t Smith a little old to be wearing massive diamond earrings and a sideways hat? And that Goblin, Marc Anthony, looks as sissified as ever…

f1848b0b82c0-600x310.jpg


Tony Sparano, the overexcited, foaming-mouth fool, fielded an exclusively-cocoa defensive lineup (with one requisite chubby Polynesian) that was, quite literally “sucking air.” Seriously, can a black professional athlete actually play football without the aid of an oxygen tank? Dolphins DE, Cameron Wake, was seen multiple times clutching a plastic mask attached to a tank of pure oxygen whenever he was on the sideline. The rest of the Dolphins’ so-called defense was exhibiting the oh-so typical symptoms of “black millionaire conditioning.” When Brady was the in hurry-up offense, they were literally taking a knee until the last moment before the ball was snapped. The white drunkards failed to notice and continued their cheerleading unabated.

The human-pig (wait, no, pigs are wonderful, useful, and intelligent creatures), Albert Hayensworth, was seen randomly punching Dolphins OT, Jake Long, in the back of the head for no reason whatsoever. Fat Boy, the future heart transplant recipient, looked exhausted in limited action. Unfortunately, to the extreme delight of the three ladies in the booth, he managed to flop his fatness onto the ball-carriers, making his standard 1-2 tackles. He's now a "starter" for life.

Brian Hartline played decent, however, his little touchdown dance routine just screamed “I’m am Wigger, hear me roar!” Show-boating should be reserved for those who actually need it…the lower races of this planet.

On the down side I was really hoping Riley Cooper and Jordan Shipley would join the 1,000 yard receiving club this year. It's not looking good.

Welker: Slow and White?

Anytime a NFL receiver scores on a 99 yard TD reception, he has to outrun people. But wait. Are there any white DBs in the NFL? I don't think so, after all, white = slow. So how does the "slow" white guy Welker do what he did last night? Here is a clue: Google a couple of other slow white guys: Mel Patton and Valeri (Valery) Borzov.
