I think as the season goes on, Bobo will realize this and we will see Samuel up over 100 yards multiple times. 5) Georgia's Special Teams are SPECIALThe Dawgs special teams played awesome all night long. The only blemishes would have to be Smith’s fumble inside UGA's 10-yard line and the snap over Drew Butler’s head for the safety.Brandon Boykin seperated himself from the other return candidates with his performance on kickoffs (four returns for 187 yards and a touchdown).I know that the blemishes hurt, but if we did not get the kick return yards we did, the game would have been a blowout for the Gamecocks. Those are the things that stuck out in my mind, you might have seen some more things and if you did please feel free to comment on what you saw.. The New York Giants and New York Jets both opened their seasons with wins.The Jets defeated the Texans by the score of 24-7 and the Giants won by the score of 23-17.I will start with the Jets who saw Mark Sanchez had a impressive first game as a pro.He was 18 of 31 for 272 yards and 1 touchdown and a interception.Thomas Jones had 107 yards rushing and Leon Washington contributed 60 yards rushing, he also had 24 yards recieving.Dustin Keller had 94 yards recieving and Jerricho Cotchery had 90 yards recieving.Chansi Stuckey had 64 yards recieving.Rex Ryan is known for defense and the Jets defense just looked awesome.Joe Namath gave Sanchez a pregame pep talk and it seemed to work as there weren't many negatives, he really had a sparkling debut.The Giants score was closer then the game really was as Washington scored a late TD.The Giants defense was really good other then that, one of the touchdowns scored by the Redskins was on a fake FG and another FG was because Eli Manning threw a interception setting them up perfectly for at least a FG.Justin Tuck had a great game with 1 1/2 sacks and being all over the field.Osi Umineyora didn't have a great game but he did have one big play where he caused a fumble and ran it back 37 yards for a touchdown.Eli Manning had a pretty good game being 20 of 29 with 256 yards and a touchdown.Brandon Jacobs only had 46 rushing yards, Ahmad Bradshaw had 60 rushing.The Giants spread out their passing attack, Steve Smith had 6 catches for 80 yards, Kevin Boss had 3 catches for 62 yards and Mario Manningham had 3 catches for 58 yards and a touchdown.The touchdown was the first of his career.Hakeem Nicks had a couple of catches for 18 yards but left the game with a sprained ankle.Domenick Hixon only had 1 catch for 10 yards and Brandon Jacobs had 2 for 17 yards and Bradshaw had 3 for 11 yards.Lawrence Tynes was 3 for 3 in field goals.The Giants now will go on the road for 3 straight which will be difficult.The Jets will come home and face the Patriots. This article is also featured on Yanks and More. ) Commentators had very little positive to say about the Kansas City Chiefs prior to their matchup with the Baltimore Ravens, but after a hard fought game, which the Chiefs were in until the end, people may have to rethink what to expect of this team.Despite losing to Baltimore 38-24, Kansas City established some identity as a resilient team with grit and a competitive drive. Many believe that coaches in the NFL must take a “hands off” approach as professional athletes are defiant in regards to being teachable. Head coach Todd Haley has been criticized at times for his hard-nosed approach to coaching, but he has molded a unit that will remain competitive despite lacking depth and extensive talent. How does a team with limited talent win games The answer: discipline, eliminating mistakes and big plays on special teams. Week One saw all three of these things happen for Kansas City.The Chiefs had only three penalties for 15 yards and didn’t commit a turnover against a ball-hawking, physical defense in the Ravens. With some apprehension regarding a rookie kicker in Ryan Succop and punter Dustin Colquit coming off of injury, the kicking game appears to be a strong point for Kansas City. Succop hit a 53-yard field goal in a windy stadium. Despite shanking one punt Colquit averaged almost 50 yards per punt, including pushing the Ravens offense inside their own 20 twice. The special teams’ performance was topped with a blocked punt by safety Jon McGraw who also recovered the ball in the end zone for a touchdown and Kansas City’s first points of the season.A few other things jump out from the Chiefs' first game:1) Todd Haley was not nearly as pass-happy as many expected. Kansas City’s offense looked like it was still under the regime of former head coach Herm Edwards as they consistently ran the ball on first down in the first three quarters. When the playbook opened up in the fourth quarter, the Chiefs finally found success with a scoring drive that went 80 yards, primarily through the air. They threw on every first down and the drive preceding had a 50-yard pass that set up Succop’s long field goal. 2) Backup quarterback Brodie Croyle played well. Croyle complete 16 of 24 throws for 177 yards and two touchdowns with no turnovers. He did face pressure as he was sacked three times on limited pass attempts, but this was an uplifting performance for fans who watched the offense struggle all preseason. In the highly unfortunate circumstance that starter Matt Cassel underperforms, Croyle is a suitable alternative.3) Veteran additions made an immediate impact. Safety Mike Brown and outside line backer Mike Vrabel were two of the team’s three leading tacklers and were involved in a number of key plays. In addition to the statistics, both bring a leadership quality and an attitude that contributes to playmaking.The Chiefs will benefit greatly from the return of injured cornerback Brandon Flowers as his replacement, Maurice Leggett, was picked on all day by Ravens' quarterback Joe Flacco. Leggett did defend the deep ball well, twice breaking up potential big gains with excellent one-on-one coverage, but he gave receivers a huge cushion all game. Despite Tennessee's momentum killing, inexplicable, embarassing loss to UCLA on Saturday, I, in my astute knowledge of the game and remarkable research skills, have unvovered five keys to victory for the Tennssee Vols on Saturday I know you are shocked.
Especially when you consider how awful Jonathan Crompton looked on this past Saturday (Isn't Crompton and awful synonymous by now). But if there's information out there to help my team win there is no height too high, no depth too deep, and no length too long to keep me from finding it. So, for your enjoyment, please take a look at the remarkable information that I have uncovered.. During the first quarter of the game all 11 Florida defensive starters dogpile the Tennessee coach in response to his offseason comments deriding their program. The players were immediately ejected from the game as a result. When asked about the assault on Kiffin, Brandon Spikes stated afterward, "We've had the guy's picture posted in our locker room for close to a year now! How are we supposed to know he was the coach We just looked at him like he was the target!" Still it took three interception returns for touchdowns to solidify the one-point win for the Vols Jonathan Crompton threw for 120 yards, 1 TD and 6 INT's.
Crompton said, "If that second team defense had just cooperated and bum-rushed Coach Kiffin as well I would have a really productive day I am like Peyton when I face third string defenses.". Amidst pressure from an offseason cheating scandal, Urban Meyer resigns effective immediately. When reached for comment Meyer states, "I tried to hide it as long as I could. Everything would have been fine too, if that jerk Kiffin hadn't brought it up at a booster party." Urban went on, "(Florida AD) Foley and I tried to act all outraged, and we were. I mean this guy comes into the conference and immediately starts calling people out for cheating! Doesn't he know this is how things work in the SEC" Meyer was asked if and when he planned to return to the coaching ranks. In response the young coach quipped, "If I had my guess I would say, shortly after midnight on November 28." When asked how he could be so specific he replied, "Call Charlie Weis.". Realizing that the Vols offense was not going to get any better, Coach Lane Kiffin decides to purchase the transformation chamber that Steve Urkel used to transform himself into Stephon Urquelle on the 90's sitcom Family Matters.
