NFL FACTS OF THE WEEK
Seattle quarterback RUSSELL WILSON led the Seahawks to a 17-7 win over San Francisco. As a starting quarterback, Russell Wilson has 34 wins and 21 home victories and that is the most in the Super Bowl Era 1966-2013, in the first three seasons. He passed Pro Football Hall of Famer Miami Dolphin quarterback DAN MARINO (33) and Atlanta Falcon quarterback MATT RYAN (33) in wins and Ryan (20) in home victories.
He’s not a “game manager”, he’s the best quarterback in the game and is about to get another Super Bowl ring!!
Of General Wilson’s 12 losses, only one (30-21) to San Diego this year – has been by more than one score; General Wilson is the embodiment of the great Black quarterback’s of the past like Chuck Ealey, Bobby Layne, Eldridge Dickey, Warren Moon and Damon Allen. When Russell Wilson loses – it is only because the Hawks run out of time.
The Field General Russell Wilson (12- 24 for 68 yards with one interception and one touchdown) kept the team in the game the first half until the offense could get their legs. This has become the status quo for the Aqua Birds the last three games. Seattle continues its winning streak with their fourth game in a row and moved into the favored position of returning to the Super Bowl in February.
Even if the opposing team has the lead by halftime the game is never over. San Francisco had a 7-3 lead going into the half. Then the Hawks went Beast Mood with Marshawn Lynch carrying the ball with 21 attempts and 91 yards and a touchdown.
The First half the Hawk defense, The Legion of Doom shutdown the Niner offense. They sacked Colin Kaepernick six times making it easier for Russell Wilson and the Seahawks offense to gain field position.
Seattle wins 17-7
This train wreck crashed in Seattle. This team is now at the 500 mark with two games left.
Kaepernick (11-19 for 141 yards) had one of his best games in three weeks, but nobody else could help him. Frank Gore scored the first touchdown of the game and it seemed like the Niners discovered the running game. It would not last, Gore left the game with concussion like symptoms and the running game disappeared.
Another missed call by the officals gave the ball back to the Seahawks on a helmet to helmet tackle on Russell Wilson. It really did not matter because this game was over at that point
The Niners would not score again in the second half and that cannot happen in Seattle. The Cherry and Gold could not move the ball in the 4th quarter.
San Francisco will be watching the playoffs for the first time since 2009. There are many questions that need to be answered in Santa Clara. One of questions is how can a Super Bowl participant fall so far in one year and how can a three time conference particapating coach fall likewise
Seattle wins 17-7
Teddy Bridgewater put on his roller skates and ran the Vikings to a 14 -0 lead in the first half. If Teddy learns how to read the secondary he will be a very difficult quarterback to bring down. His size is his best asset. Bridewater made some rookie mistakes that lead to Detroit interceptions and Lions scores.
The Field Goal kicker did not help because he missed two critical field goal attempts in the second half that could have put the Vikes in the lead
Detroit Wins 16-14
*5) 3-8-1 Cam Newton- Carolina Panthers-DID NOT PLAY
*6) 2-9 Geno Smith- New York Jets-
The New York Jets made a second half comeback on the arm of Geno Smith and on the legs of Eric Decker for the lead in the third quarter. This third victory just fuels the argument wether head coach Rex Ryan stays or go. J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets.
Gang Green finally found defense in the fourth quarter sacking the quarterback which does not happen much at Met Life Stadium. There are many questions for this team.
1) Who will be the starting quarterback in 2015?
2) Will Michael Vick remain in the New York-New Jersey Metropolitan Area?
3) Will the Jets organization keep Rex Ryan next season?
The Jets offense is anemic and they need an offensive guru for this team to move forward in 2015. They have to find an offensive coordinator at the end of this season. They must find a system that makes Geno Smith comfortable behind center.
New York Wins 16-11
Griffin came in the game after the injury to Colt McCoy in the first period. McCoy went 4-7 for 38 yards.
The Washington Football Club could have taken a commanding lead going into the locker room but Robert Griffin III (18-37 for 267 yards and one touchdown) stretched his arms far to reach over the goal-line losing the ball as he crossed the line. The official ruling was a fumble and Washington never recovered.
Wide receiver Santana Moss was tossed out of the game for arguing a Washington touchdown call which was questionable.
The New York Football Giant team of Odell Beckham Jr. – Eli Manning burns the Washington defense with three touchdowns
Also PLEASE DO NOT USE FEDEX until this company stops supporting Dan Snyder and the Washington Football Club’s team name. The corporate name of FedEx should be removed from the stadium.
Giants win 24-13
TOTAL 30-43-1 WEEK 2-2
