    Plenty of holiday cheer to go around this week!

    Offense - Plenty of worthy candidates...LT with 2 rushing TD's; Sproles with 2 rushing, 1 receiving; Rivers 21-27 with 2 scores. And welcome back Nick Hardwick! I'm going with Rivers, that was an outstanding performance in the cold, on the road, against a desperate team.

    Defense - While the rush D was a little soft (but who isn't these days against CJ), the secondary and linebackers made plays when needed getting 3 turnovers, including 1 in the red zone with the game still somewhat in doubt. And less than 100 yards passing to boot. Tough to pick, but I'll go with Coop here with the fumble recovery and a pretty solid tackling effort.

    Special teams didn't have to do much except kick off :lol:

    Props to Norv and the coaching staff for having this team well prepared on a short week, coming into a tough environment against a desperate opponent with a 2 seed at stake, and taking care of business in SPADES.

    Because there we no real special special teams plays and the fact that the game was a blowout, I am giving away 5 gameballs!

    OFFENSE

    Rivers--An azaming job by an amazing quarterback; he made the plays in every situation and completely crushed the confidence in the Titan defense in the second half, when even I sensed a comeback.

    LT and Hardwick--The run-blocking this game was sensational against a stingy front 4, and Hardwick was right in the middle of it...it is GREAT to have him back! LT had a couple of trips, but I swear that nobody is better on short-yardage goal line tries.


    DEFENSE

    Siler--Great tackling along with Coop and the MC, but what sets Siler apart is his pick and coverage. People knocked Siler on his ability to defend the pass, but he has come a loooong way.

    Weddle--He was in so many plays it was scary, being a great tackler, providing great coverage deep, and even having a pick.


    But if you ask me, every member of this team has two solid game balls after that performance. :tup:

    Can't give just one out per side so here goes


    Offense: Hardwick (welcome back), Rivers (surgically cut them up), Darren Sproles

    Defense: Siler (just keeps making plays), Phillips (leads the league in forced fumbles), the run defense (Johnson got over 100 but it was meaningless)

    I give game balls to the WHOLE TEAM. They went into another hostile environment and got the job done. They are playing like a team on a mission, and just keep moving on. The hype around Vince Young, Charles Johnson, backs to the wall and dirty play did not bother them. This is NO Longer a team of individuals. This is OFFICIALLY a complete TEAM. It is getting to be an unstoppable force and I hope it runs over everything in its path. ON TO THE PLAYOFFS AND THE SUPERBOWL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :abq2:

    Offense: Sproles. Rivers is absolutely deserving and he's gotten one from me every week but I have to give props to Sproles. He was patient but ready to explode at a moment's notice which he did perfectly. He was always ready to make the play on the screen or the hand-off and was very reliable for Rivers.

    Defense: Eric Weddle. He was probably designated Chris Johnson spy because #28 had #32 all over him in the passing game and Weddle is always a reliable run stopper. He had a great pick and plenty of notable tackles against a player even the best defenders struggle to get a single hand on.

    ST: You did nothing but kick-off which Kaeding never does fantastically. No game ball for you!
