Say you’re an NFL player. Just because you’re spending day and night reviewing film, figuring out new ways to smash you opponent’s head in and trash talking on Twitter, it doesn’t mean you don’t like footwear as much as the next civilian. In this week’s Blog, we look at the men sporting sick kicks sure to impress the ladies.
Denver’s Vonn Miller has recently been seen sporting shoes that are sparkly, in a super cray, little girl dressing as a princess way. Although the Twittersphere was aghast at his fashion sense, I give him points for trying and extra points because they’re Louboutins.
Washington’s RGIII may be injured, but there’s noting hurtin’ about his fashion sense. He’s got a whole line of shoes, including these fancy Adidas numbers from his signature collection. If you look closely, you can see them morph into a picture of Dan Snyder hugging an Indian. Kidding.
Not to be left out, Robert Kraft, the Patriots owner/evil Belichick enabler, showed up to Thursday’s nights game rockin’ spangly Patriots sneaks. Not too shabby for an old guy…perhaps Gisele is giving him some tips along with her hubby?
We could talk NFL shoes all day…but there is other news to get to.
The Most Interesting Manning In America
A recent poll says that Dallas is no longer “America’s Team”. So who is our nation’s new fave NFL squad? Why, it’s everyone’s favorite pizza-shilling record setter, Peyton Manning, and his Denver Broncos. Now, as they say, winning is the best deodorant, and the Broncos have made the playoffs the last three years, with only six losses the last two seasons. Since Peyton arrived they have been money, while the Cowboys haven’t had a winning season since 2009. The curse of Jessica Simpson, aka Romo Ono, isn’t looking so bad anymore, is it fans? Listen, there are plenty of teams with a likable QB and winning records. The point is, players like Elway and Manning transcend a game and can turn even the most cynical hatahs into rabid fans. Put that up against Jerry Jones, Dez Bryant and the behemoth stadium that Jerry built, and there’s no comparison.
Still, could there be yet another shakeup coming in the America’s Team ranks?
Seems that people are suddenly losing their business about the Dallas Cowboys. OK, so they do look pretty good this season. DeMarco Murray is making a case for MVP and Coach Garrett is making all the right decisions. Still, no need to carry on like a gal suing Jerry Jones. We’ll see how they look down the stretch, particularly against divisional opponents like the Giants, who despite looking like one of the weaker offenses in the NFC, tend to have the Cowboys’ number, especially in Dallas.
Fantasy Sparklers for The Week
For many leagues, Fantasy Football is about halfway done. It’s time to foster that love-hate relationship with some of your big name players and bench em if they can’t produce. Some sleeper picks for the week, whether your top guys are on a bye or you’re ready to cut the cord –
Carson Palmer, QB of the Cardinals back from injury…and did I mention he’s playing the Raiders?
Justin Forsett, RB of the Ravens…part of a one-two punch replacing Ray Rice. Yes, I went there.
Jordan Cameron, TE of the Brown…ready to break out from a slow start…and did I mention he’s playing the Jaguars?
That’s all the news that’s fit to print for this week. Kick off your shoes and watch Peyton try to break more records on Sunday night, and your own American team sparkle.
