Week of the Amazing Catch
Another Sunday of football is in the books and it was the week of the receiver as Seattle’s Golden Tate, Houston’s Andre Johnson and Cincinnati’s A.J. Green all made ridiculous plays. The biggest star, however, was Rams rookie wideout Tavon Austin who had two long touchdown catches and a punt return for a TD. In celebration news, Ravens kicker Justin Tucker busted out the Terio dance after a game-winning kick while Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan bought fans victory drinks after defeating the Cowboys. Also of note, Saints WR Kenny Stills showed off this amazing new hairstyle, and a Chargers fans received a $280 ticket for throwing a football in the Qualcomm Stadium parking lot before a game last month. Someone call soon-to-be-broadcaster Tim Tebow for a story on the incident.
I. Don’t. Want. Your. Life.
The tweet of the day goes to James Van Der Beek. The actor, who famously played quarterback Jon Moxon in 1999′s Varsity Blues, tweeted “I’m not saying the #Packers are desperate, but they just called to ask if I could actually play quarterback.”
