Best Player in Baseball- He's not in the World Series, but he's still Mike Trout.
Right Tackle of the Week- Marcus Gilbert. He was part of the quartet of Steelers linemen helped off the field in Thursday's loss against the Titans. His health is a key to the perpetually injured Steelers offensive line.
J.J. Watt Award- A beast, a monster, a freak, and a predator.
Jets Touchdown of the Week- That beautifully executed play between Mark Sanchez and Stephen Hill. Hill impressed me by recognized that he needed to adjust his route, and it was great on Mark's part to see this and not just go with the original route, as most passers would have done.
Game of the Week- The G.O.A.T. Peyton Manning put on a show against the Chargers on Monday Night.
Time to Jump off the Bandwagon- Surprised I haven't mentioned them in this space yet, but the Philadelphia Eagles are not good. At all.
Time to Jump on the Bandwagon- The Cincinnati Bengals still aren't very good, but in the AFC, that gets a team into the playoffs.
King of the Bottom of the Hill- Russell Wilson decided to morph into Tom Brady on Sunday, so I need a new man to award the crown. I'm very tempted to give it to Alex Smith, hoping that none of you forget how atrocious he was in the pre-Harbaugh era. But instead, I'll honor both Chiefs QBs. Yes, two kings, Matt Cassell and Brady Quinn.
Worst Team in the NFL- Yes, they beat the Steelers and the Lions, but the Tennessee Titans are beyond terrible.
Coach of the Week- Jason "Clock Management" Garrett. Learning from the king of messing up the clock, Andy Reid, he cost his team a chance to run another play at the end of the game against the Ravens. I have no idea what he was thinking there. Oh yeah and Norv is just being Norv out in San Diego.
Newest Boy- I'm done with being an A.J. Green skeptic. He's amazing.
Best Team in the NFL- Still tempted to put the Texans in here, but instead I'll go with the Atlanta Falcons. They have struggled against some bad teams, but they found a way to win.
My Fantasy Team Player of the Week- The best running back in the NFL, Ray Rice.
Amar'e Stoudemire/Javale McGee Stupid Act of the Week- Yet another extreme opinion on A-Rod, stop blaming him for everything and wanting the Yanks to eat a giant portion of his salary just to get rid of him. He's above average and should be on the Yankees roster next year unless some crazy team wants to take a major part of the contract. You also need to realize that Cano, Granderson, and Swisher deserved a lot of the blame for the team's .188 batting average in 9 playoff games.
Birthday of the Day- Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas. My boy AVB is still top form, carrying over from his Chelsea days. I love this man.
The G.O.A.T.- Peyton Manning is amazing. Period.
Mike Trout Award- My boy!
