Ballers And Wankstas Of The Week-Week 7

Boy oh boy! Some good play. Some bad play. And Ballers and Wankstas involved in all! Let me introduce you to my Ballers and Wankstas of the Week!

Ballers Of The Week

Drew Brees, QB, New Orleans Saints (31/35, 325 yards, 5 TDs)
Brees’ night against the Colts was just that: a breeze. He did any and everything he wanted to Sunday to the Colts and the bad thing is there was nothing they could do about it.

DeMarco Murray, RB, Dallas Cowboys (25 carries, 253 yards, 1 TD)
Ladies and gentlemen, could this be the newest running back to take over in the Cowboy backfield? Well, early impressions are he is the guy, not Felix Jones. Of course, it was the Rams though. It should be interesting to watch his production as he is given more opportunities.

Arian Foster, RB, Houston Texans (25 carries, 115 yards, 2 TDs; 5 receptions, 119 yards, 1 TD)
How many times do you look up and see a RB as the leading receiver in addition to the leading rusher? Not very much. Foster ran hard and also made plays in the passing game. He did any and everything he wanted to versus the Titans defense.

Josh Scobee, Jacksonville Jaguars
Scobee was the offense in Jacksonville’s big win over Baltimore. Scobee hit 4 FG’s including 3 over 50+ yards). Huge win for the Del Rio regime.

Wankstas Of The Week

QBs Carson Palmer and Kyle Boller, Oakland Raiders (15/35, 177 yards, 0 TDs, 6 INTs)
I never thought I would say this, but the Raiders missed Jason Campbell. He may not have been a star, but he didn’t turn the ball over and he just made the simple plays. Palmer and Boller must step up their games up or step out. Period. Another thing. Am I the only one that is trying to figure out how Kyle Boller is still in the NFL?

Baltimore Ravens Offense
The Ravens had 11 first downs, 146 total yards and 2 turnovers in one sad offensive performance against the Jaguars. If they have aspirations of winning a title this year, they can’t lay eggs like this. This play was unacceptable.

Seattle Seahawks and Cleveland Browns
Welcome to the offensively-challenged game. To be honest, I feel both of these teams couldn’t get out of their own way. Cleveland won the game, but they can’t escape the uglyness that was this game. I wonder if fans watched this game with their hand across their face, peaking through the cracks in their hand.

Minnesota DE Brian Robison
For those that don’t know who Brian Robison is, he’s the Minnesota player that kicked Packers OL TJ Lang below the belt in the game Sunday. There’s just certain things you don’t do. And kicking another man in his manhood is a serious no-no in my book. Sad display right there Mr. Robison.

These are my Ballers and Wankstas of the Week. If anyone has a Baller or Wanksta they would like to add, please feel free to drop a comment!

  1. Great stuff as usual Mike. Demarco Murray sure had a beast of a game Sunday didn’t he. That’s ridiculous 253 yards, 10 yards a carry. In a brutal Seahawks-Browns game you give as your wankers, defensive end Red Bryant broke through the brutal Browns field goal unit not once, but twice and blocked a 48 yarder and then a 24 yard field goal attempt with 3:04 left on the clock to keep the game within a field goal. He was really good in an otherwise terrible game.

  2. J.B. Knox on said:

    Nice piece. I don’t know which side to take on adding this video homage? Do I suggest Neil Rackers who I now refer t o as Nail Wreckers, to the Ballers list or do I suggest adding the whole Titans special teams unit for allowing this to the Wanksters list, but check out the video and see what you think.

  3. Can’t really blame Carson Palmer so much, irregardless of how bad he played, because he wasn’t supposed to play and knew only 15 plays according to a Yahoo article I read. Nice Ballers and Wankstas list though.
