Jimmy is home on Long Island enjoying his early September vacation and will return on Thursday. Week One of the NFL season is in the books and Redskins rookie Robert Griffin III is the talk of the NFL. The Baylor alum threw for 320 yards and two touchdowns in Washington's 40-32 victory over New Orleans. He also showed off his brand loyalty (and heart) to Adidas. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady broke his nose, but still managed to throw two touchdown passes, including one to tight end Rob Gronkowski that resulted in an embarrassing failed spike. Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden got trapped under the American flag before the game, then threw four interceptions in Cleveland's 17-16 loss to Carolina (this Trent Richardson run was a bright spot for the Browns). The replacement referees nearly botched the ending of the Seahawks-Cardinals game by giving Seattle an extra time-out, but the Cardinals held on for a victory. Lastly, Ryan Tannehill's debut as the new Dolphins quarterback didn't go so well as the rookie threw three interceptions in a 30-10 loss to Houston. At least he still has Lauren Tannehill, that is unless she dumped her husband after his performance and ran off with this Texans fan.
May The Force Be With You
Louisiana-Monroe was a 30-point underdog against No. 8 Arkansas, but scored the go-ahead touchdown on fourth-and-one in overtime for a 34-31 victory. (The Razorbacks face top-ranked Alabama next Saturday.) The jury is still out on Missouri's new uniforms but at least it gave fans something to talk about other than the 41-20 drubbing to Georgia. Since it is Fashion Week, Oregon and TCU also debuted new looks. The feel-good story of the weekend is that of Sacramento State kicker Edgar Castaneda. He hit a 30-yarder as time expired to secure an upset win over Colorado, and then was given a walk-on scholarship from the coach after the game. Most importantly, LSU students debuted this amazing R2-D2 keg.
