What a weekend, huh? The St. Louis Rams were upset by the Detroit Lions 27-23 Sunday after a last second dynamic play action toss from Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford to running back Kevin Smith. Obviously, there were positive takeaways from this game for the Rams, but the result still stings just as much.
Whatever. The rest of the opening week of the regular season was great, so, Rams fans, let’s not hang our heads in disgust any longer. And, in case you missed it, here is a compilation of all of the great thing things that you may have missed during the week.
This was bound to be an exciting weekend of football after the leaked John Clayton commercial made its way around the Internet on Thursday. This has to be one of the funniest commercials ESPN has ever done. Check it out…
In case you didn’t know, rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III of the Washington Redskins is signed by Adidas. The NFL now uses Nike clothing. Here is RG3’s creative way (read: uncreative and sad attempt) to etch out his Nike symbol…
In other news, wide receiver Nate Washington of the Tennessee Titans is a crappy movie buff. Here you can watch him do the Willie Beamen touchdown dance, made famous by Jamie Foxx, in the movie Any Given Sunday, the movie where Al Pacino failed miserably act acting like a NFL head coach.
What you saw Sunday was true. Yes, wide receiver Titus Young of the Detroit Lions did head butt Janoris Jenkins and, yes, he was benched because of his actions by head coach Jim Schwartz. We must applaud JS for taking the initiative when clearly Young could have helped the Lions better handle the Rams had he continued to play. Also, it was great to see Jenkins get his first career in the NFL. Hopefully many more are to come in his future.
Peyton Manning is back! The Denver Broncos and Manning destroyed the Pittsburgh Steelers last night on SNF on NBC by the score of 31-19. Manning being back is good news for everyone because he makes the NFL that much more exciting!
And now, my favorite part about this post, the only way to know how to cheer up a football fan who is a little down in the dumps is by showing a picture of Kate Upton. Thanks, SI.
