The Hazies - NFL

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

I still have a bugger of a man-cold, but there is only so much garbage you can watch on television - except for Rescue Me of course (since we don't get NESN's SportsDesk up here).

Time to recap this week's Hazies from the NFL - I know, a man-cold is no excuse for doggin' it. Week 3 of the NFL was a bad one for me, which was well documented last week - there weren't nearly as many dominant performances last week as there were in the first two weeks. Some old-timers made the grade this week and get to pick up some hardware and shake hands with Hazel.


Brett Favre of the Packers shredded the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Favre, who many thought to be washed up (myself included), was 25/36 for 340 yards and 3 TD passes - including a 75 yard TD pass to Greg Jennings...remember what we say here, "Chicks dig the long ball." I know, Detroit is awful - but we thought the Packers would be too.

Mark Brunnell of the Redskins did a number on the Texans. Brunnell was 24/27 for 261 yards and 1 TD - what made the performance all the more notable was that he completed 22 passes in a row. After the way he looked against the Cowboys it was a nice rebound for Brunnell - even if he plays for the stinkin' Redskins. As with Detroit, Houston stinks - so don't get too excited in Washington.

Brian Westbrook of the Eagles had a huge day in San Francisco. Westbrook rushed for 117 yards on eight carries, including a 71 yard TD run, and caught four passes for 47 yards and another TD. Another team I love to hate - but I have to give it up to Brian since he was on the bench this week for Hazel Mae's Cowboys.

Javon Walker of the Broncos lit up the Patriots secondary on Sunday night (sorry Hazel). Walker caught three passes for 130 yards and 2 TDs - including one that went for 83 yards. We think Hazel was in Toronto on Sunday and enjoying a Sunday night off - so she might not have watched that one...she might be making plans for the 2007 China Bowl between her two favourite teams, Kansas City and New England.

Torry Holt of the Cardinals had a big day against the Cardinals in Phoenix. Holt caught 8 passes for 120 yards and a TD. Unlike the Texans, Lions and 49ers - who were torched last weekend - Arizona was supposed to be good this year.

T.J. Houshmanzadeh helped the Bengals beat Cowher and the Steelers on Sunday. T. J. (I don't want to spell his last name again) caught 9 passes for 94 yards and 2 TDs. Nice to see the Steelers fall - I still think they are counterfeit.

That's about it for tonight's Hazies. But what would Wednesday be without a recap of the Weird & Whacked? You didn't think I had abondoned the Wednesday entry did you? The NFL was front and center today.

Terrell Owens did not, REPEAT - DID NOT, try to commit suicide. Owens was rushed to hospital on Tuesday night after a reaction to pain killers. Police and the media speculated that it was a suicide attempt - but Owens said it was a case of mixing pain killers with dietary supplements. The T.O. side show has stopped in Dallas - can the Tuna manage him? I think a Cowboys' fan, I sure has hell hope so. I had one question during today's news - how many football players have a freakin' publicist? This had to be a stunt.

Terrence Kiel of the San Diego Chargers was arrested on felony drug charges for shipping perscriptoin cough syrup. The DEA says abuse of codeine-based cough syrup is widespread in Texas, as kids are mixing it with soft drinks or other drugs. If you ask me, I think they are just using the syrup to make Flaming Homers.

Ricky Manning Jr. of the Bears pleaded "No Contest" to a felony assault charge. Manning Jr. claims he doesn't want to go through a trial during the season and wants to take care of it and just play football - he was quick to point out he didn't admit to anything. Ricky doesn't want his fate in the hands of a jury - he should know, he's been down this road before...but he didn't do it that time either.

Odell Thurman of the Cincinnati Bengals has been told to "Get out...and stay out!" by the NFL. Thurman, already under suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, was suspended for the rest of the season after being arrested and charged with drunk driving. So much for Mike Brown's "standards" for his team. This may come as a shocker - but Bengals' WR Chris Henry was in the car while Thurman was bombin' around town drunk.

That's about it for tonight gang - the codeine laced cough syrup is kicking in...I got my fix from Terrence Kiel - kidding! Have a great one.

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world - I'm mounting a letter/email campaign to Maxim to reconsider their 10 sexiest newscasters dare they not include you?
