NFL: Unexpected Performances Week 8

Posted: November 2, 2011 in Uncategorized
Week 8 is over and the Lions and 49ers are still the surprise teams in the league so far.

The 49ers have a record of 6-1 after defeating the Cleveland Browns.  A year ago the 49ers were 6-10.  They fired head coach Mike Singletary December 26, 2010 after their game agains the Rams.  They hired Jim Harbaugh in the off season and he is getting the job done.

 The Panthers and the Vikings squared off and both starting quarterbacks were rookies and both had solid games.  Vikings’ QB, Christian Ponder, threw 236 yards and a touchdown.  Cam Newton continues to shine as a rookie. Cam threw 290 yards and 3 touchdowns. 

The Eagle are starting to look like the dream team Vince Young dubbed them to be.  Vick and the Eagles beat the Cowboys 34-7 this past sunday.  runningback, LeSean McCoy rushed 185 yards and 2 touchdown.

Last but not least my favorite, the Detroit Lions’ defense.  The Broncos are trying this Tim Tebow expirment and thinking it will work.  The Lions sacked Tebow SEVEN times, picked the ball off once, and forced him to fumble three times.  I have never liked Tebow in fact I call him Tearbow because he cried a couple times in college when he lost games.  He is joke.

Well thats all for week 8.  The unexpected will happen next week when the fate of Tim “Tearbow” Tebow’s starting job is on the line.  Hopefully the Oakland Raiders do us all a favor and end this Tearbow thing.

    San Francisco is making the leap back this year, playing like the old days. I was never a 49er’s fan during their hay day, but after the years of absence it is good to see them back.
