I am a little late this week on this post, but hey better late than never. I think that is how the saying goes. That is exactly the theme we are seeing this year in the NFL with numerous 4th quarter come from behind victories. If you would have told me last year that after week 3 I would even considered choosing these 3 for a NFL Studs list I would probably have slapped, hit a catdaddy, and continued on with my day. So let’s get into our week 3 NFL Studs and Scrubs.

Catch me if you can!

1. It is time that we take notice to Ryan Fitzpatrick, Fred Jackson, and those Buffalo Bills. This first award isn’t really a individual performance, but a kudos to the entire Buffalo Bills as they overcame a 21-0 deficit to shock Tom Brady and his Patriots. Fitzpatrick threw for 369 yds and 2 TD, and averaging 6.2 yds per carry Fred Jackson chipped in with some excellent runs during this comeback. Don’t forget about the Bills defense who picked off Tom Brady 4 times! No matter what invalid reasoning you give to try to discredit the Bills defense during this game, you need to stop and give respect when it is due.

The Bills have been irrelevant just as long as Smiles and SouthStar have been relevant.  So far that streak has ended at the beginning of this season as they have started 3-0, and looking to go 4-0 as they face the Bungals next. The Bills have shown us this season they are not to be overlooked beating some peoples SuperBowl favorites the New England Patriots. Congratulations to Ryan Fitzpatrick, Fred Jackson, and the rest of those Buffalo Bills this week you are NFL STUDS!!!

2. Next up let’s all stand and applaud Darren McFadden and those Oakland RRRRAAAAIIIIIDDDDDDEEEEEERRRRRSSSSSSSSSS!! *Chris Berman voice* This past week McFadden help propel his Raiders past the Jets with 19 carries for 171 yds and 2 TD. After running threw the Jets defense like that I think it’s time that Rex Ryan stop spending so much money on corners, and improve his front 7. It is time to take notice of this football team; the Raiders are here to play. Finishing 8-8 last year the Raiders showed some promise, and it has carried into this season. This year I think the Raiders playing in the AFC West have a legitimate shot at a division title. Especially if they can keep playing the way they did last week. So far it doesn’t show they are missing Nnamdi too much, lets just see how long they can keep this up. Darren McFadden congrats you and those Raiders are NFL STUDS of week 3.

3. I cannot believe I am actually about to say this, but next is Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions. Down 20-0 at halftime Matthew Stafford found away to rally his team and leave out of Minnesota with a victory. He went 32-46 for 378 yds and 2 TD. Almost throwing for 400 yds with no interceptions deserves some recognition. Stafford 2 TD went to none other than Calvin “Megatron” Johnson who caught 7 passes for 108 yards. These two are becoming a force to be reckoned with, I think they will be terrorizing defenses for a long time assuming Stafford can remain healthy. These are not the Lions of old the guaranteed win you counted when you saw them on your favorite teams schedule.  It is good to see the Lions playing competitive football. Up next they have my Dallas Cowboys let’s see what Stafford and Megatron can do. Until then congratulations Matthew Stafford and Megatron you are NFL STUDS of week 3.


1. It gives me great pleasure to announce the Philadelphia Eagles as my week 3 scrubs. This so called “Dream Team” after beating the Rams *insert sideeye* they have lost two straight games falling to 1-2 on the season thus far. Vick is back to the Vick we know; the most exciting and electrifying injury prone player in the league. Before getting hurt Vick was 16/23 for 176 0 TD 1 INT and 3 fumbles. Fantasy owners are you happy with that performance? The Eagles signed Vince Young and thought he would maintain the same offense if Vick gets hurt, but this guy is hurt as well. All of Philadelphia had to briefly rely on Kafka! lol. I cannot even type his name without laughing. Anyway he went 4/7 for 35 yds 0 TD and 2 interceptions. Remember that Desean Jackson holdout situation? This guy this season so far has provided the Eagles with 10 catches for 153 and 1 TD. How does he expect more money when Maclin has surpassed Jackson’s season stats in one game. Currently sitting at the bottom of the division and seeming to have more problems than answers the Philadelphia Eagles are NFL SCRUBS for week 3.

2. To the New England Patriots I have one question. How in the world do you blow a 21 point lead and give up 34 points to the Bills!!!?????? Bill Belicheat did you lose your spygate film on the Bills? The Patriots although they are 2-1 on the season their defense has been torched every single game. They were even torched by Chad Henne. It is no surprise to me that the Patriots are currently last in the NFL in total defense and they also give up 26.3 points a game. For a team aspiring to win a SuperBowl this is unacceptable. I hate to shock everyone with this next fact, but Tom Brady does not play defense. If the Patriots cannot improve their defense their SuperBowl run could be cut short in the playoffs. The New England Patriots DEFENSE! for week 3 you are NFL Scrubs.

3. This may be a stretch for my last NFL Scrubs, but what do you call a defense that gives up 234 yards rushing? Apparently, we call them a great defense. I think otherwise and say this week the New York Jets defense are Scrubs. Coming into each game you know that every team you face will quickly become run heavy knowing that you struggle against the run. In week 1 against my Cowboys Romo moved the ball with ease until the 4th quarter, and last week the Raiders put up 34 points on this defense. Now maybe the role of the defense is changing, but continuing to give up that amount of yardage on the ground and those points deserves recognition as NFL Scrubs. They are still 2-1, but with opposing teams gaining confidence and testing the Jets defense; their defense just needs to play better. I won’t speak on this too much, but the Jets still have that big question mark on their team known as Mark Sanchez. Unfortunately Rex Ryan, “Playing like a Jet” has earned you a spot on this weeks NFL Scrubs list.
