CAROLINA CRISIS: THIS IS BIGGER THAN YOU By Michael...
BY THE NUMBERS WEEK #10
By:- Gary Norris Gray- BASN Staff Reporter
Once again the America Sports Media conveniently ignores Black Sports History.
Like Professor Fred Whitted from Winston Salem State University states many times “We have to tell our own story.”
9-1 Russell Wilson- Seattle Seahawks – At the beginning of the season sportscasters all over the country stated that the Seahawks could not win on the road. Well, Wilson and the Hawks do it again in Atlanta, Georgia beating the Falcons 33-10. They are 5-1 on the road and in the second half of the season they will be playing in the Great North West with the mighty 12th man in the stands. Number 3 and Marshawn Lynch carry Aqua Birds to victory. Wilson goes 19 for 26 with 287 yards and two touchdowns.
6-3 Colin Kaepernick-San Francisco 49ers- Kaepernick was running for his life the whole game as the Black and Teal clad linemen chased him all day. The Panther defense made number 7 uncomfortable all afternoon. Colin was 11 for 22 and 91 yards and 6 sacks. San Francisco 49ers are now two games behind the Seattle Seahawks with the tie breaking victory.
6-3 Cam Newton- Carolina Panthers- Cam Newton seems to be growing up beating the 49ers 10-9 in a defensive battle as the Cats win their 5th game in a row. Newton was 16 for 32 and 169 yards with four sacks. In the third quarter Newton’s form seemed to be flawless. Running back DeAngelo Williams scored the only Touchdown of the game.
What do you want with that black crow Mr. Nowrocki ? Just asking.
5-4 Geno Smith- New York Jets- Rookie- BYE WEEK
2-4 E.J. Manuel-Buffalo Bills- Rookie- Manuel returned to face the tough, hungry, Steelers defense. E.J. threw for one touchdown through the air with 155 yards. The Buffalo rookie quarterback went 22-39 for 155 yards and one interception. E.J. Manuel is still learning the ropes on the field and will improve with each passing game.

2-4 Michael Vick- Philadelphia Eagles- DID NOT PLAY
3-5 Terrell Pryor-Oakland Raiders – Lose in the Mistake Bowl in the Meadowlands of New Jersey 24-21. Raiders lose to the New York Football Giants. Too many fumbles, interceptions, and busted plays. Pryor went 11for 26 and 122 yards and one touchdown throw. The Giants contained Pryor’s running game causing two fumbles.
3-6 Robert Griffin III- The Washington Football Club- RGIII had one of the best games of the year but the Washington defense did not help him. The Washington Football Club returned to the same point as last year. Can they pull off the great ending, again? Griffin went 24 for 37 with 281 yards and 3 touchdowns Griffin also ran for another touchdown in 34-27 lose.
1-1 Jason Campbell- Cleveland Browns BYE WEEK
