Dave, 

I will take your spot Thursday, you just have to let Sully know because I am not sure if I still have the feature apps. Sometimes he leaves them there and sometimes he doesn't.

Hello gabbers and thanks for checking in today.

New segment part 2…Harry’s disgusted.

In 69 words-

The Vikings reinstating Adrian Peterson and saying they will let the judiciary process play out is saying that he’s too good of a talent to let this incident get in the way of our goal. The Raddison is pulling their advertising from the Vikings in light of Peterson’s return.  Peterson injured his 4 year old son, that he only sees 10-15 days per year, unintentionally… with a stick.  

I wrote this blog before the Vikings, under pressure from sponsers, reversed their position on Peterson. He will still get $800,000 per week but won't be allowed in the Vikings facility.

Week two of the NFL season had plenty of off field drama, my opinions of these things is simply spelled out in 69 words above.

On the field........

On the field there was some great football played.

Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers took it to the defending SB champs and beat Richard Sherman and the Seahawks 30-21.

Ageless Antonio Gates pulled in 3 TD passes from Rivers in the win..

Rex is not happy

Marty is in deep shit

The Jets seemed to find their mid season stride by timing out in Green Bay…blame Marty , Rex or Karma, it really doesn’t matter they just seem to finds a way. They are kind of the AFC version of the Lions.

 

Jordy Nelson gave Oldharry’s Natural grass and bad weather fantasy team a boost over Lanz’s Dukes of York. 209 yards receiving and that adds up to some solid bonus points…sorry Lanz

The play of the weekend award goes to Patriots DE Chandler Jones.

A blocked FG attempt and subsequent 59 yard TD return to go along with 8 tackles and 2 sacks.

The Pats o line kept Tom Brady clean with only one sack.

 

The still unbeaten teams after week 2 are:

Cincinnati

Arizona

Denver

Houston

Buffalo

Carolina

 Philadelphia

The most surprising Bills are 2-0 after beating the Bears in week one and pummeling the Dolphins 29-10 in week two. The road ahead for the Bills isn’t an easy one:

San Diego-       just beat defending SB champs Seattle last week.

At Houston-     off to a 2-0 start

At Detroit-        explosive offense with Stafford and Cal Johnson

New England-   Tom Brady has a 22-2 record vs Buffalo

 

The surviving Dolphins are gathering to put this years pin poking voodoo session round table together to finish off the teams left unbeaten. They will be putting the 2% milk to toast on ice awaiting the last to fall of this years pretenders

 

Milestones:

-Patriots head coach Bill Belichick won his 200th NFL regular season game 30-7 over the Vikings on Sunday.

When asked about the 200th Bill said, “ I didn’t plan on this when I got into coaching, it’s really something…I guess what it really means is that I had some great players playing for me”

The only other active NFL head coaches with more than 100 wins are

Tom Coughlin        158

Jeff Fisher             157

Andy Reid             141

John Fox              109

 

- Wrapped In Belichick's 200th win was Tom Brady's 149th win pulling him into 3rd place alltime behind Farve and Manning

 

-

Peyton Manning now has 497 TD’s just 11 behind all time leader Brett Farve.

The closest active QB’s behind Peyton are

- Drew Brees at #4 with 366 and

- Tom Brady at #5 with 361.

 

Speaking of Brees

 

-Drew Brees 51,651yds. passed John Elway 51,475yds. and moved into 4th place all time in total passing yardage.

 

Top 10 all time list passing yards

1.Brett Farve              71,838

2.Peyton Manning       65,475

3. Dan Marino             61,361

4. Drew Brees             51,651

5. John Elway              51,475

6. Tom Brady               49,547

7. Warren Moon           49,325

8. Fran Tarkington        47,003

9. Vinny Testaverde      46,233

10. Drew Bledsoe         44,611

 

In the Harry family league I squared off against son #2. I had to get rid of Peterson and replaced him in my lineup with Shane Vereen and move Reggie Wayne into the flex position I moved Vereen from. With some injuries, suspensions etc. I was still able to win 168-109 and stay unbeaten.

Life in the Subdivision:

You just never know what the kids will bring home next!  I’ve always been a purveyor of letting my kids do what they want as long as they don’t break things or hurt people. All of them are independent and self sufficient which is what our parenting plan was when we started out. Last weekend #4 son, the one who told us we needed to be tested for a trembling disorder after taking the shaky truck for a spin, came home with a new yard ornament.

He says it (an old 24’ Boston Whaler with no motor) will be sold within a week and he will fix the trailer and get $600.00 for it. I said ok, what did you pay for the arc?

Boat and trailer…$150.

Number 3 son said later that day, “ ok the Boat isn’t gone until Nov 1st…you want the over or under Dad?”

 I took the over.

The Ditkahs rocked the lanes last week taking game one by 43 point and game 3 by 25 after dropping game 2 by 10. A solid overall win which brings us to 8-8 after two weeks. I had an ok night, started out with a 156 followed with a 192 and finished with a 177.  

Until next week Gabbers and don’t forget Lanz right over there >>>
