All the players came to the player's ball. Unfortunately, some didn't make it in the ball and were left standing outside. Here are the Ballers and Wankstas of the Week!
Ballers Of The Week
Mark Sanchez, QB, New York Jets (17/35, 180 yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT)
Sanchez came out and made the throws needed to pump some energy into his team. I think he needs to build upon this next week. Hopefully the Jets won't ask him to throw this much again though. This could be fool's gold. But I have to give Sanchez props for his great play this game though.
Chris Johnson, RB, Tennessee Titans (21 carries, 190 yards)
Johnson didn't have that extra gear, but he was hitting holes and hitting them hard as he penetrated the Bucs defense. The next challenge will be to see if Johnson and his offensive line can keep the momentum going into next weekend in Buffalo.
Beanie Wells, RB, Arizona Cardinals (27 carries, 228 yards, 1 TD)
Everyone hope aboard the Wells train. Beanie was moving like a powerful locomotive with deadly power and speed as he ran through the Rams defense. Imagine if Beanie ran this well and his line blocked this well all the time. Now that's a scary thought.
New Orleans Saints
Drew Brees and the boys came out and went to work on the Giants. They sliced, diced and basically dismantled the Giants. They had over 500 yards of offense, including 4 80+ yard drives that ended in TDs.
Wankstas Of The Week
Tyler Palko, QB, Kansas City Chiefs (18/28, 167 yards, 0 TD, 3 INT)
Shane Falco would be a better option at QB instead of Palko at this point. Palko made some inexplicable throws. In fact, some of his throws were into double and triple coverage. Maybe Palko should have taken the time as a backup to learn how to read defenses instead of just standing there.
Philadelphia Coach Andy Reid
I don't know if Andy Reid gets it. His most important player is LaSean McCoy. When he gets 25+ touches, the Eagles win. When he doesn't, they lose. My question for Reid is why wouldn't you get your most important player touches? He is the key to you winning. Well, he may not be making the calls in Philly too much longer because of his inconsistent play-calling.
New York Giants Defense
The Giants defense didn't show ant effort, didn't show any sense of urgency and basically had a lackluster effort against the Saints. You would have expected more from them, especially since their playoff future is fading away.
These are the Ballers and Wankstas of the Week. If you have any ballers or Wankstas that you would like to add, feel free to drop a comment!
