    Sunday Wrap-up: JaMarcus Russell sighting! 

    That’s right folks, yesterday we finally got a glimpse of the top overall pick in this years NFL draft…and a glimpse was all it really was. For some strange reason, coach Lane Kiffin decided the right time to give Russell some experience was early in the second quarter of the game. Russell led the team on two scoreless drives (going 4-for-7 for 56 yards) before being replaced by the games starter, Josh McCown. I guess maybe Kiffin wasn’t ready to start him, but he also didn’t want to bring him in with the game on the line in the second half…but it still seemed a little odd to me. Who knows how the Oakland quarterback situation will play out over the rest of the season though, with McCown, Culpepper and Russell in the mix, but I guess we’ll just wait and see what kind of tricks Kiffin has up his sleeves. Anyways, with the Patriots about to beat the Ravens and move to 12-0 tonight, here is a recap of the action that took place yesterday (including Thursday’s game as well)…

    Tony Romo (QB-DAL): 309 passing yards, 4 TD, 1 INT
    If Romo keeps playing this well, I don’t see any NFC team challenging the ‘Boys en route to the Superbowl

    Peyton Manning (QB-IND): 288 passing yards, 4 TD, 1 INT
    Seems like we haven’t seen many of these games this year huh?

    Congratulations to Thomas Jones 

    It took 13 weeks and a matchup against a team that’s odds-on to go 0-16 this year, but Tommy finally scored his first touchdown of the season! Had he been able to spend an entire season as an NFL team’s starting tailback without scoring once, I’m fairly certain it would have been an accomplishment on par with the Dolphins’ 2007 destiny.

    Good on ya, Thomas. Just think – score one more, and you’ll be tied with your brother Julius! If you’re able to accomplish that, make sure to drink enough while celebrating to forget that he splits time with Marion Barber, and isn’t the favored option at the goal line.

      And drink enough to forget that next year the team has a serious question to answer with Leon Washington leading the team in rushing touchdowns…as the backup.
