Game Balls and Penalty Flags- Week 6

There is only one undefeated team left in the NFL as Green Bay goes to 6-0. And, their head coach Mike McCarthy says they can be better. Scary thought!


Naaman Roosevelt, WR Buffalo: Experts said he was too slow to make it in the NFL and his battle has been uphill trying to earn a spot on the Bills. On Sunday, the local product catch a short pass and burned the Giants defense for a 60 yard touchdown, hopefully the first of many for Naaman.

Ahmad Bradshaw, RB NY Giants: The workhorse for the G-Men ran for 104 yards and a career high three scores to lead the slumping Giants to a much needed win.

Michael Turner, RB Atlanta: Turner ran for 139 yards and two touchdowns, coming back to defeat the Panthers.

Devin Hester, WR/KR Chicago: The most interesting guy to watch in the NFL. Hester snagged a 48-yard touchdown catch then scored on a career-best 98-yard kickoff return. Hester is the best kick returner in NFL history. Period.

Josh Freeman, QB Tampa Bay: The much underrated Freeman threw for 303 yards and two touchdowns leading the Bucs to an impressive win over division rival New Orleans.

Oakland Raiders Special Teams: On the day they paid tribute to AL Davis, the Raiders and special teams coach John Fassel pulled a few rabbits out of their hats with a 101 yard kick return by Jacoby Ford and a fake field goal as punter/holder Shane Lechler threw to a wide-open Kevin Boss for another score.


Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB Buffalo: Fitz who has been a major part of the Bills resurgence this year under threw Stevie Johnson twice on the same exact play and was picked off both times, the last when Buffalo could have gone in for the game winning score.

Minnesota Vikings WR: Yes, Donovan McNabb has struggled this season, but his wide outs are not helping by continually dropping passes that hit them in their hands. The Vikings WR have had the worst case of the drops all season. Maybe they will learn how to catch now that it looks like Christian Ponder will soon take over.

Rob Ryan, Defensive Coordinator Dallas: The Ryan brothers presentations have really become tiresome. Rex continues to boast about his under performing team, but he was outshadowed by his brother Rob boasting about how he has Tom Brady's number because his Browns defense held him in check last year. On Sunday, Ryan's D was shredded on the final drive basically letting Brady do whatever he wanted as the Pats left with a win. So much for having his number Rob.

Drew Brees, QB New Orleans: It pains me to do this because he is such a nice dude, but his three picks against the Bucs with the last in the end zone with the game on the line is just not like him.

Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz, head coach San Francisco and Detroit: With all the great action from Sunday, we are seriously focused on the ridiculous hand shake flap? Both guys need to have thicker skin.
