Unexpected (and expected): Don’t count out Eli Manning

It was another unpredictable week. Let’s take a look at the weird, wild and the unexpected (and expected) from Week 7.

Ready for a SmackDown!

Five-time heavyweight champ and SmackDown! general manager Booker T got his hometown Houston Texans fired up before a huge win over the visiting Baltimore Ravens. Can you dig that, sucker?

With our Uniform Monitor Dave Dameshek away, allow me to give a quick review of some of the notable uniforms of the day.

I feel like I’m in the minority here, but I kind of like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ current look. Very classy, and a solid upgrade over the old uniforms. The creamsicle unis are good in small, nostalgic doses, like talking to your elementary-school friends on Facebook, old reruns of “Land of the Lost” and Jagermeister.

The Texans’ red uniforms should probably be on the shelf forever. In all honesty, the Texans should be allowed to wear old Houston Oilers throwbacks.

And the Patriots should wear the red uniforms forever. However, isn’t it a bit strange to wear red when the Patriots’ enemies in 1776 were the redcoats?

Not in my house

Hey J.J. Watt, I like it, but shouldn’t you take something from one of Houston’s basketball stars instead of taking the finger wag from Dikembe Mutombo?

Don’t throw it to stonehands

Hey Josh Gordon, do you know why you’re playing? It’s because Greg Little drops the football too much. Ooh, boy. Cleveland Browns fans deserve better.

And here’s Little’s great grab. Truly the unexpected.

The Play
————————————————————————————————————————————–

We had two “Cal-Stanford” type plays this week. Neither resulted in a touchdown, or a member of the band getting run over. But still, they were great fun to watch.

And did you know Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera played for that Cal team?

Mike Tolbert joins all of the preteens in mimicking this YouTube sensation. I bet he shops at Hot Topic, too.

Game of the day
————————————————————————————————————————————–

RG3 looked like he was going to rally the Washington Redskins for a big win at New York.

But this happened right after.

You might want to cover that guy.

The five-second frenzy!
