Speaking of the football, Man City dispatched Bournemouth earlier today. I’ve adopted the former team simply because I fell in love with Kevin De Bruyne (better known on this site as Kevin The Broom) while watching the Belgique national team play last summer. As a fan of the Giants and the Senators, I’m a bit perplexed sometimes when I see these footballers play in a competent fashion, because coaching and management are capable and on the same page. I have to tamp down my expectation of Kevin simply ramming it up the center of the opposing D.
-Jimmy G came thru (14-20, 188 yds, 1td, no int’s) thereby calming the nerves of his teammates, the organization, the city, the fans and his mom.
-Lamar Miller fell down and didn’t get back up again. The Texans have Duke Johnson but not much else. His career rush avg. is 4.3 yds and his reception number comes in at 9.2 but he’s never been thought of as a go-to rb, but maybe? (he does seem a bit light at 210 though)
-Speculation this morning was that AP would be traded for, which in turn would speed up Derrius Guice’s inevitable ascension to the #1 rb role for the Potato Skins. (which Peterson would not have taken well)
-Of course the biggest news was Mr. Luck sucker-punching the Colts franchise and fan base. (only in the sense that no one saw it coming) After a bit of reflection, this seems like an intelligent response to 4 years of injuries and rehab and injuries and rehab. Gronk was in the same spot and did the same thing. How many times have we seen players try to fight thru pain and end up re-injuring themselves or incurring another, altogether new ouchie?
My prediction? He’ll be back in two years (he’ll only be 31) and will tear the league apart. I said the same thing regarding the early retirements of Megatron and Patrick Willis but I’m going to be right this time, dammit! TO THE GAME!
Fantasy-wise, everyone is going goo-goo over JuJu and the number of added targets he’ll get but I think the value lies with a certain Mr. Donte Moncrief. Which Derrick Henry shows up this year? The one that I kicked to the curb in week 10 or the one that went on a tear the last four weeks of the season?
Hey, gimme all you got.
