Goodell’s Actions Will be the Indicator

Standard

According to the Buffalo News, running back Marshawn Lynch stole $20 from the wife of Buffalo Police Seargeant William Crawford at the TGI Fridays in the McKinley Mall.

The fact of the matter is that what the truth is will be determined by National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell.

The report by the Buffalo News cites that after the proof of the incident is in the fact that the Hamburg police department returned the $20 in a envelope.

After reading the article a second time there are clearly some holes in the Crawford’s story.

The incident happened December 7th, 2009, but waited almost a full month as last Wednesday she gave her statement.

The reason for it is that Mrs. Crawford is scared of retribution from Lynch.

First, Lynch allegedly only took $20 from the woman, so how can he know where she lives if he never took her purse?

Secondly, it wasn’t Mrs Crawford that filed the complaint it was her husband that filed it with Hamburg police.

Finally, Mr. Crawford is a police officer and he should know that if there are no witnesses besides the statements of the three people involved then there will be no charges as there will be no corroborating evidence.

In the end what this is is a quick cash grab by the Crawfords.

Romo Shaking Off the Monkey

Standard

In Superbowl XXIX San Francisco 49ers quarterback Steve Young shook off the monkey on his back by leading the 49ers to victory over the San Diego Chargers.

Now, the same is happening to quarterback Tony Romo as he is having a monstrous day against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Romo is 17-27 throwing for 203 yards passing with two touchdowns and no interceptions.

The thing that makes this amazing is that the Cowboys are playing the Eagles for the third time and teams usually have a good feel for each other.

Also, the Eagles threw Romo a big monkey wrench at Romo in the form of shifting defensive linemen right before the snap, but that has still not stopped Romo.

One of the things that has helped Romo the most is that he is not bound to trying to get former Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens the football or his drops at crucial moments.

In the end the NFC Championship game this year is going to be a good one.

Jets are Gonna Need to Improve to Make a Run

Standard

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan made a schedule all the way through a Superbowl parade.

After their game against the Cincinnati Bengals they are gonna need to improve in order to go deep into the playoffs.

The Jets may have went into Cincinnati and roughed up the Bengals, but that isn’t going to happen next week.

Without nose tackle Kris Jenkins, who was lost for the year due to an injury, the Jets cannot stop the run.

When the Jets go up against a team that has a solid passing game as well as running game they are going to get their lunch handed to them.

The reason being is that the opposition will run the ball and then use play action to open up the pass.

That will keep the defense on the field, which means the Jets offense will have very little opportunities to make plays that will lead to Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez making some mistakes by turning over the football.

In the end this is the playoffs and Ryan will eventually be eating his own words.

Bengals Need To Address Passing Game

Standard

The Cincinnati Bengals this year saw the decline of their passing game that was once elite in the National Football League.

With the Bengals making a quick exit in the playoffs it is clear that they need to address their passing game.

The New York Jets held Palmer to 18 of 36 passing for 146 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

The obvious problem were the losses wide receiver TJ Houshmandzadeh to free agency and Chris Henry to an injury and then tragedy.

Today’s performance was foreshadowed last week as they were dominated by the Jets even when the Bengals starters were on the field.

In the end for the Bengals to be Superbowl contenders they are going to have to get your passing game on track.

See Ya Marshawn

Standard

Buffalo Bills running back early in the offseason prior to the 2009 regular season got in trouble with the law due to an unregistered hand gun.

With another incident being reported by the Buffalo News its time for the Bills to get rid of Lynch.

According to the report Lynch stole $20 from a woman at a TGI Fridays when a teammate was chatting with the woman as she was taking money out to pay for her check.

When confronted by the womans friend Lynch busted out the all so famous line “do you now who I am.”

Lynch was suspended for the first three games last year and it is only a matter of time before he does something to get suspended for a year.

Its dissapointing to see Lynch have stardom go to his head as he is a tremendously talented player that has the potential to be one of the all time great.

In the end don’t let the door hit you on the way out Marshawn.
