Famous Jameis Strikes again!

Jameis Winston capped off his incredible freshman, Heisman Trophy winning, undefeated season with an incredible comeback vs. the magical Auburn Tigers who had some magical finishes that brought them to the final BCS National Championship ever, before the new playoff system next year. Auburn also was trying to extend a 7 game SEC reign on the BCS National Championship. Florida .St is from the ACC. The game started slow and sloppy by both teams with dropped passes and punts. The only high note was Auburn’s pass rush which troubled Winston very much leading to sacks and incomplete passes. Auburn looked great in the 2nd quarter scoring 2 TD’s Melvin Ray on a 50 yard reception TD and a Nick Marshall 4 yard QB run. In the end of the 1st, RB Tre Mason had a rush TD. Florida St. Was down BIG and were in trouble. What do you do when you’re down 21-3? You do a jet sweep fake punt that led to a TD from Devonta Freeman. In the 2nd half it looks more like a National Championship. There was defense in the second half with the only score from the Seminoles on a FG. The score, 21-13. The 4th quarter reminded me of the week 14 Vikings vs. Ravens game in the second half with all those TD’s and ended with a go-ahead TD by the...

Ice Bowl II?

We were expecting the ”Ice Bowl II” yesterday in the Packers vs.9’ers game but the temperature was slightly higher. But still it was like a freezer in Lambeau Field. Both teams were ready and the game was close. QB for the Packers Aaron Rodgers struggled including no completions in the 1st quarter!!! QB for the 9’ers, Colin Kaepernick ran all over the Pack and he has had recent success vs. The pack running. He ran for 98 yards in this game. He had success passing too. His favorite receiver in the game was Michael Crabtree with 8 receptions for 125 yards. Aaron Rodgers just could not do enough and he had a career playoff low, 177 yards in the air. The 49ers won off a Phil Dawson field goal 23-20. The Bengals vs. Chargers game was not as exciting as Cincy struggled in the 2nd half scoring 0 points. The Bolts took over and scored 20 points to win 27-10. Next week in the NFL… Indianapolis @ New England, San Diego @ Denver, New Orleans @ Seattle, San Francisco @ Carolina. In the NBA, the Warriors are on a 9 game win streak after beating the Wizards last night. Look out NBA, Curry’s Warriors are on a roll! In College Football, the BCS National Championship is on tonight with a matchup between Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston vs. The...

“O.K” OK

Coming off a devastating loss , Alabama faced a #11 Oklahoma team last night in the Sugar Bowl. The game was close through out the game but when Bama QB A.J McCarron (who finished his senior year and a great college career) fumbled and the Sooners returned it they took a 14 point lead to win the game. The MVP in this game was definitely QB Trevor Knight who matched his total SEASON!!!! Stats in the game , he has played in other games, threw for 348 yards and 4 TD’s. He made every deep throw and was really clutch. Coach of the Sooners, Bob Stoops, has now won the BCS National Championship, the Fiesta Bowl, Sugar Bowl and Rose Bowl. Wow! I’m really excited for the BCS National Championship on the 6th. In the NFL, Jay Cutler the QB for the Bears, earned a 7 year contract worth A Lot of money. I was not expecting this after the preform acne he had vs. the Packers on Sunday, he was expected to explore free agency. Also in the NFL, RB who was picked up by the G-Men this season with their RB problems, the team he won 2 championships with, he retired after a remarkable career. After his latest championship, he backed up for the Seahawks and...
