Could the St.. Louis Rams be the worst team to ever take the field in the NFL?
0-6. A long way to go towards absolute ineptitude, but the paltry nine points per game they are scoring is a fairly good sign that it will be a very long season in the Gateway City.
Enough about that shitty team.
Let's move on to our Rebels who are making something of themselves in THA LEAGUE(see: Derek Pegues' only chance at making a living outside of the casket industry).
Here's how the old balls did this week:
BenJarvus Green-Ellis, RB, New England Patriots: completely lambasted, skulldrug and buried the Tennessee Titans, 59-0; 7 rushes, 67 yds, 2 rec, 11 yds; This was BJGE's first yards of the season in the blow-out win. Last season, he played well when given the opportunity but is stuck behind a couple good backs.
Ken Lucas, CB, Seattle Seahawks: defeated by the Arizona Cardinals, 27-3; two tackles bringing his season total to 22 with an INT.
Eli Manning, QB, New York Giants: defeated by the New Orleans Aints, 48-27; 14-31, 178 yds, 1 TD, 1 INT; This was easily Eli's worst game of the season. Drew Brees outdueled him and the Giants didn't look good trying to come back against the Aints.
Ashlee Palmer, LB, Buffalo Bills: victorious over the New York Jets, 16-13; notched six tackles matching the combined total for the previous four games. Palmer was not drafted but seems to be getting more playing time every week.
Jamarca Sanford, S, Minnesota Vikings: victorious over the Baltimore Ravens, 33-31; grabbed two tackles matching his season high from last week. Sanford must feel at home on a team that never loses. Not so much because of Ole Miss, but rather his high school team: South Panola University.
Mike Wallace, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers: victorious over the Cleveland Browns, 27-14; two rec. 50 yds, 1 rush for 21 yds; Roethlisberger passed for a ton of yards in the game, and Wallace has become a solid fixture in the passing game. Giving him an opportunity to run the ball gave Wallace a chance to show his great speed.
The 49ers had a bye week, so we didn't get to see the blood and gore spewed at the hands of Patrick Willis. He has become a mainstay in our weekly old balls Rebel of the Week.
The award will have to go to BenJarvus Green-Ellis this week, however. He got his first action of the season and responded well, getting almost 10 ypc. With Sammy Morris and Kevin Faulk starting to age, BJGE could be a player the Pats hang on to if he gives a consistent effort when he hits the field. If nothing else, the Rams could probably use him, because they are fucking awful.
