The RP’s Weekly Web Gems: The Politics of Pigskin

The Politics of Pigskin

The Bears put up a staggering 51 points on the Titans on Sunday while the defense continued its domination of opponents. Charles Tillman added to his campaign for Defensive MVP by forcing 4 fumbles (more than 2 entire defenses – Indy and St. Louis). [Chicago Tribune]

Look out, the Steelers beat the Giants much more soundly than Sunday’s score made it seem and are 4-1 in the past month. [SI]

On Sunday, Tampa Bay rookie RB Doug Martin rushed for 251 yards on 25 carries, good for the 10th most rushing yards in a single game ever. Oh yeah, he had 4 TDs too. [Yahoo! Sports]

Martin wasn’t the only rookie to shine on Sunday – Andrew Luck set the rookie passing record – breaking Cam Newton’s record from 2011. []

The Cowboys are 3-5 and Jerry Jones has said that Jones the owner would have fired Jones the GM (he currently fills both roles if you weren’t aware). Not sure why he doesn’t take his own advice and do this. [PFT]

Adrian Peterson’s spin move. ‘Nuff said. [.gif]

Just for fun, here was Jim Harbaugh on Halloween going as John Harbaugh. [picture]

There was a great Eli Manning Face right on the front page of ESPN this morning. [picture]
