Seattle survives in San Diego


">

Percy Harvin hauls in TD pass from Russell Wilson


San Diego - The Seattle Seahawks were in a war on Sunday in San Diego, and while they came out victorious in this battle. There were some wounds suffered that could greatly impact their chances at a repeat superbowl season. Quarterback Russell Wilson went down in the 3rd quarter with what can only be described as an ugly dislocated elbow injury, an MRI will be postponed until tomorrow due to swelling, but whatever the results of that MRI are, for the first time in his career Wilson will have to miss some starts for Seattle. That means veteran backup Tarvaris Jackson will step up and start for Seattle in the immediate future, while Seattle no doubt will be brining up B.J. Daniels from the practice squad to back him up. Luckily the Seahawks got another impressive game from Marshawn Lynch, and now the running attack will need to relied on extensively until Wilson can make it back onto the field. Seattle also lost pass rusher Michael Bennett in this game for at least a few weeks. The early bye week will now come in handy as it will give these players an extra week where they dont have to miss a game to recuperate. In the mean time though Seattle must head home to take on a Denver Broncos team that wont care who is suiting up for the Hawks, they will be out for revenge in this one. It will be a tough task for the Hawks to stay undefeated past Sunday.

THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR (COLTS DYNASTY REPORT)

INDIANAPOLIS - It wasn't all that unexpected, especially after a four game losing streak, but it looks like the blame for 2014 has fallen on General Manager Ryan Grigson. Grigson was fired today following a loss to Pittsburgh, most of his staff will remain but the assumption is that there will be a massive cleanout after the season.

MSMG released a statement that came shortly after the news leaked via Twitter and other media sources through Adam Schefter of ESPN.



Grigson's GM tenure ended after only two years.

Ownership did not specifically cite a failure to build a balanced roster, but most of Grigson's recent moves have left the team in trouble on defense and the offensive line. The trade for Richardson, which cost them a 2013 1st round pick, was a particularly costly mistake.


If the Grigson firing wasn't a big enough surprise, the team announced a flurry of trades and free agent signings before the Week 9 trade deadline. OLB Robert Mathis was traded to the Steelers for a 2016 2nd round pick, OT Gosder Cherilus was sent to the Jets for a 4th and 7th round pick, and finally WR Hakeem Nicks was sent to the Raiders for a 3rd rounder.

In order to fill the roster gaps WR Jacoby Ford, DE Adam Carriker, and OT Max Starks were all signed to 1-year contracts. It's hard to tell if the team will crater after trading away so many starters, but they will have the Week 10 BYE to regroup.

PITTSBURGH - The Colts took the field tonight under some of the worst weather conditions, heavy rain and driving winds. The rain started before the game and did not let up at any point, the wind was a steady 11MPH that didn't make things easier, but the muddy field would make everything an adventure.

The Colts passing defense has been a serious issue once again this year, and the Steelers passing attack wouldn't allow them much room for improvement. Luckily for Coach Pagano, things would go their way through the first half and victory looked assured.

Through the start of the second quarter Andrew Luck had two TD passes, one to Da'Rick Rogers (19) and one to Reggie Wayne (10), to hold a 14-3 lead over a Shaun Suisham FG. The Colts defense would completely shut down the Pittsburgh running game, and a 21-3 lead was negated on a Wayne clipping call after a 23 yard TD pass to Dwayne Allen was called back and ended up as a 35 yard Adam Vinatieri FG.

With the half nearing a close Rogers burned Ike Taylor for a back-breaking 63 yard TD and a 24-3 lead. Ben Roethlisberger gave the Steelers' fans hope with a 57 yard bomb to Antonio Brown as the half expired. Down 24-10 the Steelers were being routed, managing only 14 rushing yards and 134 yard of offense compared to the Colts 313.



Rogers has stepped up in the absence of Hilton and Nicks.

Things didn't get much better in the 3rd quarter, even after Rogers was stripped of the ball (ruled an INT) to put Pittsburgh on the Indianapolis 25 they allowed three straight sacks to knock them out of FG range. The Steelers' punt was perfect, pinning Luck and the Colts offense on the 1. A short drive and a punt allowed the Steelers to kick a FG before the end of the quarter and make it 24-13.

With the game apparently in hand, the Colts defense went into some serious lapses and the final quarter became a waking nightmare. Roethlisberger took them down and found Orson Charles for an 11 yard TD, but they failed on a 2-PT conversion. Luck answered right back with a 4 yard strike to Donte Moncrief to go up 31-19, but the defense just couldn't hold. Pittsburgh used a 4 play 81 yard drive to score on a pass to Darrius Heyward-Bey, and the Steelers defense came up big time to force a punt. With just under 2:00 left the Steelers marched back down and used a defensive lapse to get Brown in the endzone again on a 24 yard TD. This time they converted the 2-PT attempt and found themselves up 34-31.



Antonio Brown has his way with the Colts secondary.

The Colts had less than 20 seconds to score, and couldn't get close enough for a Vinatieri FG. A truly disappointing loss after victory seemed assured. Luck and Pagano were visibly frustrated after the game, and with a Week 9 BYE on the schedule there was some concern that Pagano might not be around on Monday.

FIRED!!!!

New owner Denson has made his first move as owner. Denson has fired, Jay Gruden from the Washington Redskins. Gruden was found outside Redskins park today talking to ESPTV. "My man, Dan who hired me is gone, so I have nothing more to say but, good luck to the new head coach."

HIRED!!!

WOW! Just like that Denson brought in a new head coach, Tomas Single from Pittsburgh, PA. New owner Denson spoke to 1067daphan earlier in the day and was found to have said, "Jay Gruden, did his thing for Andy Dalton and them cats in Cincy, but here in the city; we are looking for new swag and bringing the butter, baby!"

Swag??? Butter??? No one has heard of Tomas Single either, at least we know Jay Gruden can coach quarterbacks and offenses and his brother has a bowl under his belt. Nevertheless looks as if things are changing in D.C.

INDIANAPOLIS - The Colts had a few extra days to rest after a disappointing loss last week. They would need every day they could get with TY Hilton and Hakeem Nicks out for 5 weeks. The Colts cut HB Dan Herron this week to make room on the roster for free agent WR Danario Alexander, hopefully the won't have any other serious injuries.

Facing a struggling Bengals team looked like what the Indianapolis offense needed to right the ship, but this game was a total mess for both teams. Turnovers and officiating errors would be the story of the day, but in the end the Colts just didn't play well enough to win.

A Vinatieri FG was the only score of the 1st quarter, but the drama of the 2nd quarter more than made up for it. The Bengals scored with a 15 yard TD pass to Tyler Eifert after a 12 play 80 yard drive. The Colts came right back and on 4th & goal from the 5 Alexander caught a TD on a short pass, but the officials called him out on the 1 yard line. Coach Chuck Pagano went ballistic, and after some shouting threw a challenge flag. Despite crossing the plane of the endzone, the officials refused to reverse the call and the Bengals got the ball. The Colts managed to hold them at th 5 and Andrew Luck came back on the next possession to find Alexander a second time for an 8 yard TD.



Officials failed to rule this a TD.

The second half would be just as dramatic, this is where the turnover game came into play. Jermain Gresham would open the 3rd quarter with a game ending injury, but Eifert was more of a headache for the Colts. A promising Bengals drive would end with a Bjoern Werner INT, but Luck would give it right back with an INT of his own. The Bengals would get down to the 1 but a false start penalty and a goal line stop would force them to settle for a FG.

Luck would find Reggie Wayne to open the 4th quarter on a 13 yard TD pass and a 17-10 lead. The Bengals would drive back down the field and use a 31 yard FG by Mike Nugent to close the gap on Indy. Luck would start a march down the field to put the game out of reach, but Ahmad Bradshaw missed a short pass that would find Terence Newman and give Cincy a chance to take the lead. A few plays later Andy Dalton would find Ryan Whalen for a 1 yard TD and take a 20-17 lead. Luck would throw a third INT in the final minute and doom the Colts to a second straight loss.



Wayne hauls one in for Indianapolis' final TD.

Many feel that GM Ryan Grigson would keep his job until the end of the season, but the roster he has constructed is starting to frustrate fans and ownership.

Finally some dramatic changes are happening in the Nation's capital. Dan Snyder has finally given up his majority ownership rights to the Washington Redskins. In bizarre turn of events, new owner Denson has purchased the team. Dan Snyder has handed the ropes to a 30 year old kid from Virginia.

Does this guy, out of thin air, believe he can handle a market such as D.C? Can Redskin fans put their trust in someone they have no idea about? Is this a joke? New owner Denson, has a lot to prove to a city that hasn't won a title since 91-92. A lifelong fan since the 80's. If he's 30, that means he was born in the 80's and really doesn't know much about what he has bought, because when Denson was born that was the height and dynasty of the Redskins. The owner was 8 years old when the Redskins won their last Superbowl; and here comes a kid thinking he can bring this team back to it's glory? Only time will tell.

Denson has a lot of work to do. How will Denson piece together this new Redskins team? Nothing within the organization has Denson had any input with, this looks like a disaster in the making. Prove us wrong, Denson..... Please prove us wrong!!!!!

HOUSTON - The Colts would face their division rivals tonight, a Thursday Night game on the road is the bane of teams and fantasy players. The short week of preparation would show, and to make things worse Hakeem Nicks would be out 5 weeks with a broken jaw.

Things got worse for Indianapolis almost immediately as TY Hilton was carted off with a broken collarbone on the first offensive play. Andrew Luck would now have to play without his 2nd & 3rd WR option and depend on the Reggie Wayne / Dwayne Allen duo.

The two teams would struggle on offense, finishing with a scoreless opening quarter, but Luck would find Allen on a 5 yard TD pass to open the 2nd quarter 7-0. Case Keenum, starting in place of Ryan Fitzpatrick, would give the Texans hope with a 20 yard scramble down to the 5 yard line. Unfortunatley for Keenum he would be leveled by LaRon Landry and fumble the ball, the Colts' D'Qwell Jackson would recover the fumble.

Houston would get their revenge ont he exact same drive, as Luck would take the team down to the 8 looking to make it 14-0, but Allen would get muscled away from a short pass that would be caught by DJ Swearinger and taken back 92 yards for a TD. The teams would struggle to score from then on, with a mostly uneventful and scoreless 3rd quarter.



Luck was not on his game tonight.

Things would come alive in the 4th after Allen dropped a TD pass in the endzone to force a Vinatieri FG. Keenum would take advantage of a coverage breakdown and hit TE CJ Fiedorowicz for a 71 yard TD and a 14-10 lead. Luck would engineer one last drive, but the Texans would force a 4th & 2 with less than 1:00 left to play, and Indy would fail to pick it. With the game essentially over Rob Bironas would hit a 53 yard FG to make it a one-TD lead and finish off the Colts.

A very disappointing game for Indy on both sides of the ball. Despite dominating the Texans statistically, and holding Arian Foster to a meager 33 yards, the long TD bomb and the pick-6 would doom Indianapolis.

A's win streak ends at 6 in Anaheim

Anaheim, Ca - The Oakland Athletics came in today with a 6-game winning streak after back-to-back sweeps on the road against the Twins and Mariners. Competition was a little tougher this time around as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, winners of 4 straight, extend their own winning streak to 5 as they trashed the A's 8-2.

Albert Pujols walked in the bottom of the 7th after an error by Josh Donaldson allowed Mike Trout to reach base with 2 outs. That loaded the bases for Josh Hamilton, who hit a grand slam to right on the first pitch from A's reliever Luke Gregerson. Kole Calhoun led off the bottom of the 8th with a solo homer off Ryan Cook to add an insurance run. Kevin Jepsen threw a 1-2-3 9th to seal the win for the Angels, who are in 2nd place behind the A's in the AL West.

The Angels started lefty Hector Santiago who gave up a solo home run to Josh Donaldson in the 1st to allow the A's to take a 1-0 lead. Oakland A's starter Jesse Chavez, who 1-hit the Twins his last time out, allowed a run in the bottom of the 1st. Chavez gave up a home run to Chris Iannetta in the bottom of the 5th before allowing the winning run on-base with a single in the bottom of the 7th.

The A's were led by Josh Donaldson who was 2 for 4 with 2 home runs in the game but were struck with 3 errors from Donaldson, Chavez, and first baseman Brandon Moss.

The series continues tomorrow on Jackie Robinson Day with Tommy Milone starting for the A's and Garrett Richards going up for the Angels.

INDIANAPOLIS - The Colts would head into their match up with the Ravens looking like one of the better teams in the league. Two straight wins in which the Colts dominated their opponents would help build their confidence, but the Jaguars and Titans played like they may be some of the worst teams in football. Despite the winning, the Colts defense has struggled regularly.

The Ravens, even though a shadow of their Superbowl winning team, would present a number of issues for the Indy defense. The biggest issue would be the Ravens balanced attack, starting with Joe Flacco under center and the weapons at his disposal. Aside from the opening game against Denver, the Colts haven't faced a team with a running threat (Ray Rice) and a bevvy of receiving options (Torrey Smith, Steve Smith, and Owen Daniels) to complicate things.

Andrew Luck opened the scoring with a 1 yard QB sneak after TY Hilton was tackled on the 1, a disturbing theme for the game. Vinatieri would miss a 53 yard attempt near the end of the 1st, which would prove a costly mistake.

Rice would even the score with a short TD run after a long pass to Smith Sr. on an all-out blitz, and then Matt Elam would pick of Luck on a deep seam to set up a Justin Tucker FG and a 10-7 lead. Things would finally go the Colts way after two fumbles (Hilton on the kickoff and Reggie Wayne after a short pass) would be overturned after review. Vinatieri would tie the game on a 40 yard FG with time expiring.



Smith would be a constant headache.

The entire second half was all Ravens, the Colts defense could barely keep them from scoring and the defense was all over Luck's targets. Hakeem Nicks would get close to scoring, but a fumble on the 5 would kill the drive. The Colts would stone Rice on two straight rushing attempts, and it looked as though a punt from the endzone was coming, but on 3rd and 10 Rice would run for 31 yards to get them out of trouble. The drive would span the 3rd and 4th quarter and end with a Tucker 51 yarder and a 13-10 lead.

Luck, on his way to near 350 passing yards, would engineer a drive that ended with a short TD pass to TY Hilton. The Ravens, and Smith Sr. again, would torment the Colts defense thanks to a 39 yard TD bomb to take a 20-17 lead. Luck would have one more drive in him, taking the offense down the field with less than 2:00 to play in the game. The Ravens defense opened up, and with the clock ticking down Luck hit Wayne for a 37 yard gain that would win the game. Unfortunately Wayne was tackled on the 1 yard line, reaching for the endzone, but the refs did not give it to him and the Ravens walked away victorious.



Another inch would have won the game.

Despite Robert Mathis' two sacks, and the team limiting Flacco to only 250 yards, the Colts defense was burned again and again by big plays.

Oakland A's Franchise

Posting my new MLB 14 The Show Franchise here for fun. Restarted with the A's after my Dodger franchise.

I'm using PsychoBulk's sliders with OSFM Opening Day rosters and real-life injuries to begin the season.

Let's pick things up from the 3rd week of the season where the A's are leading the AL West at 10-3.

Complete standings below:
Please take note Houston Astros can't be put in the AL West standing since they are in last place right now at 4-9 and the table hasn't been updated for a while now. Can anyone do that for me? Thanks in advance.
