Boss: Torrey Smith, Baltimore Ravens WR
After receiving the news that his 19-year-old brother was killed in a motorcycle accident, Smith recorded a career-high day Sunday night versus the Patriots. Smith finished the game with 6 catches for 126 yards and 2 touchdowns in a 31-30 Ravens’ victory. Smith looks to back up this performance Thursday night against the Cleveland Browns.
“If the NHL continues to insist on their demands, then it will take a full year. That’s because we are not going to cave in. Then I will spend the entire season in the KHL. It’s an absolute reality.” - Washington Capitals star forward Alex Ovechkin on the current NHL lockout
Goat: NFL Replacement Refs
Replacement refs have been scrutinized the first three weeks of the NFL season. Things took a turn for the worst when, Monday night, the Seattle Seahawks stole a victory from the Green Bay Packers. The refs awarded a Hail Mary pass to Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate who barely managed to have a hand on the ball after shoving a Packers safety to the ground. The play was reviewed and upheld. The twittersphere erupted in disbelief as the refs gave the Seahawks their second win of the year, while leaving the packers with more losses in 2012 then they had all of last year. Hopefully this is enough to spark more talks between the NFL and the real officials to end the lockout in order to keep the integrity of the league.
