5 Things We Learned: Suggestions Are Welcome Edition

1) The AFC belongs to the Houston Texans. The Texans embarrassed their competition on Sunday, in the form of the Baltimore Ravens by hanging a 40-spot on them. The Texans are in a class of their own. There are only two other teams in the AFC that may be able to give Houston a run for its money and they are the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos. Thankfully for Houston, they face the Patriots in a couple of weeks, and we will get to see a (hopeful) preview of the AFC Championship Game.

2) Cam Newton equals Vince Young. Both men enjoyed great success on the field during their college football days. Both saw themselves go very high in the draft. But as we are all witnessing, neither of them knows how to deal with losing a few games.
Cam’s post-game interview had “I’m about to lose my mind if we win again,” all over it. The fact is, the guy is not ‘The Guy.’

He is used to being coddled, and now that he is being asked to step up and be a leader, he is having a difficult time playing a different role. Cam couldn’t lead me to the water at a beach, let alone lead his teammates in a game for 60 minutes.
3) Just give Robert Griffin, III the Offensive Rookie of the Year Award now! Is this even up for debate? Nope, didn’t think so. The guy is putting his team in a position to win week in and week out with very average wideouts. Had it not been for the subpar coverage of cornerback DeAngelo Hall on Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, RG3 would have come in the house of the defending champs and shown up Mr. 4th Quarter himself, Eli Manning. If the Redskins get a themselves a good wide receiver, who can stay healthy (Yes, I’m talking to you Garcon), they will have a great offense for years to come.
4) No one wants to play vs. the Chicago Bears defense right now. And you can’t blame them! That defense is making quarterbacks around the league fearful to snap the ball on long plays, knowing that the fast pass-rush is headed their way. Over their last 4 games, the Bears have held their opponent your scoring 3 times. This defense looks eerily similar to a 2006 Bears group that was able to carry the franchise all the way to a 2006 Bears group that was able to carry the franchise all the way to a super bowl trip. Stay tuned…

5) You can confidently pick up the quarterback playing vs. New Orleans, and the runningback facing Buffalo each week and be confident in them going off! The Saints rank 30th in net passing yards per game, while the Bills are dead last on the NFL in rushing yards per game. The rankings speak for themselves. Feel comfortable acquiring each of these position players vs. these two teams going forward.

#BookIt
-Cam Newton will be asking for even more suggestions after the Chicago Bears are done with him.
-If Michael Vick has another 3 turnover game, he’ll be benched.
-The Falcons will NOT be undefeated after Sunday.

This week’s recipient of The McKayla Is Not Impressed Award goes to the human suggestion box, Cam Newton. No one feels sorry for you. Not because you are making millions of dollars playing a recreational sport, but because you lose like a 5-year-old in a game of Red Light, Green Light. You put on that sulky Jay Cutler face and expect people to feel sorry for you. Keep your chip up and learn to lose like a man, instead of whining to the media that you are running out of solutions. Here’s a suggestion, learn to hit your wide-open receivers in the red zone.
