Timberwolves Open Training Camp

They may not win much, but they should be entertaining to watch!

Vikings 41, Falcons 28

The Vikings improved to 2-2 on the season today with a 41-28 win over the Falcons at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.  Teddy Bridgewater, making his first NFL start, was the star of this game, he gave the Vikings their best QB play since Brett Favre was back there.  He gives me hope for the future!  Mike Zimmer also impressed me with several nice calls, I think they are in good hands.  Nice win Vikes!!!

Minnesota 30, Michigan 14

The Gophers moved to 4-1 today with a 30-14 win over Michigan at The Big House in Ann Arbor.  What a nice win for the Jerry Kill and the Gophers!  They are without a doubt headed in the right direction as a program.  Brady Hoke on the other hand should probably start packing his bags, his decision making in this one left me scratching my head on several occasions, especially regarding his QB's.  The lynch mob seems to be forming for him at this very moment.  Great win Gophers!!!

Top 10 All Time Yankees

Even though I have tired of the Derek Jeter farewell tour, and think that he was a tad overhyped because he played in New York, I do admit that I did enjoy Jeter's final home game and I do think that when all is said and done, you do need to rank him among the Top 10 New York Yankee's of All Time.

TPSG Top 10 All Time New York Yankee's
  1. Babe Ruth
  2. Lou Gehrig
  3. Joe DiMaggio
  4. Mickey Mantle
  5. Mariano Rivera
  6. Derek Jeter
  7. Yogi Berra
  8. Whitey Ford
  9. Don Mattingly 
  10. Reggie Jackson
The top 5 are pretty clear, Jeter does belong somewhere in that 6-8 range though.

Others:  Willie Randolph, Dave Winfield, Goose Gossage, Ron Guidry, Roger Clemons, Thurman Munson. Andy Petitte, Phil Rizzuto, Red Ruffing, Lefty Gomez, Bill Dickey

Olbermann on Jeter

I tend to agree with Olbermann on this one.

UCLA 62, Arizona State 27

The Sun Devils fell to 3-1 on the season tonight with a 62-27 loss to UCLA at Sun Devil Stadium.  It was a nightmare of a game for the Sun Devils, they really seemed to lose their composure in the second quarter and could never recover.  Add in too many turnover and some completely horrid tackling and it made for a really ugly game.  I hate to say it but I'm not optimistic going forward either unless they can somehow tighten up that defense.

Cardinals 23, 49ers 14

The Cardinals improved to 3-0 on the season today with a 23-14 win over the 49ers @ University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.  It really was a tale of 2 halves, the 49ers came out strong but the Cardinals really dominated in the second half.  I love this Cardinals coaching staff!  They did it without Carson Palmer too, making it even more impressive.  Nice win Cards!

Observations:

Saints 20, Vikings 9

The Vikings dropped to 1-2 today with a 20-9 loss to the Saints at the Superdome in New Orleans.  The Vikings dug themselves an early hole and just weren't able to dig out of it.  It was the start of the Teddy Bridgewater era though, I'm guessing he pulls a Wally Pipp.  Even Bridgewater couldn't provide a spark to this Vikings offense though as they once again struggled mightily.  Until that Vikings offense gets moving, they are going to struggle.

Minnesota 24, San Jose State 7

The Gophers improved to 3-1 today with a 24-7 win over San Jose State from TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.  I cannot say that it was the prettiest win I've ever seen, Minnesota had only 1 completed pass the whole game for just 7 yards, they also had 10 penalties and 2 turnovers.  Still, the Gophers really had control of this game from their opening drive and their rushing attack was very impressive today, they really didn't need to throw the ball much more, they also forced 5 turnovers.  It was some good old time football.  If they want to win a few B1G games though, they will need to do a better job passing the ball (whether it's Leidner or Streveler).
