Seahawks Overpower 49ers, Friday Night ALCS Game

FOOTBALL

Colin Kaepernick The Seattle Seahawks’ defense overpowered the San Francisco 49ers in Thursday night’s matchup. 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick was sacked 6 times and couldn’t get any momentum going. Win the win, the Seahawks avoid a completely disastrous start to their season and finally have their first road win in 4 games. Seahawks 20- 49ers 3.

Eagles Offense Struggles, Bears/Rams Grab Wins, Kaepernick No Russell Wilson

FOOTBALL

In Washington, the Redskins took on the Philadelphia Eagles.  Chip Kelly’s Eagles offense needed to finally show off their “explosive offense” if they wanted to be taken seriously this season.  The Redskins’ defense came to play, however, and the Eagles offense (even with some nice plays down the stretch) struggled again. The Redskins held on for the win.   Washington 23, Philadelphia 20.

Matt ForteIn Chicago, everyone had ruled out the Bears this season. The Bears have even publicly stated they are putting some of their offensive stars on the trade block, including Matt Forte.  They were likely going to have to endure another week of Jimmy Clausen as their QB, but their starting QB Jay Cutler was ready to play at game time.  It was a close game against the Oakland Raiders, but a last second field goal by Robbie Gould gave the Bears the win.   Chicago 22, Oakland 20.

The Arizona Cardinals were looking to dominate this weekend after they crushed the 49ers last weekend, but the St Louis Rams came to PLAY.  The Rams’ Todd Gurley did not disappoint, running all over the supposed “incredible Cardinals defense”.  The Rams grabbed a road win against the Cardinals.  St. Louis 24, Arizona 22.

Colin KapernickIn San Francisco, the 49ers hosted the red hot and undefeated Green Bay Packers.  The Niners were coming off a horrendous loss last week and were looking to rebound.  Aaron Rodgers played brilliantly for the Packers (again), and Colin Kaepernick was less than impressive for the Niners.  There was even one play where the Packers’ defense stopped Kaepernick and the linebacker Clay Mathews taunted him by saying, “You ain’t no Russell Wilson, bro” (referring to the skills of the Seattle Seahawks quarterback).   Green Bay 17, San Francisco 3.

Cavs In NBA Finals, Dwight Howard Under Scrutiny For Throwing Elbow, Kaepernick In Hot Water

BASKETBALL

In the NBA, the Cleveland Cavaliers were looking to sweep the #1 seed Atlanta Hawks.  In these playoffs, the Hawks have not looked like the juggernaut they were in the regular season, and LeBron took advantage of that weakness.  The Cavs absolutely destroyed the Hawks Tuesday night and are now headed to the NBA Finals!!!!! Cleveland 118, Atlanta 88.

Elsewhere in the NBA, the Rocket’s Dwight Howard is under extreme scrutiny for an elbow he threw at the Warriors’ Andrew Bogut’s face.  Everyone was saying the act was intentional and that he should be suspended for the next game.  The NBA, however,  has reviewed the play and ruled that the elbow was not intentional, but rather just part of his aggressive motion to peel himself away from Bogut.  Howard will in fact be playing Game 5 in Oakland, and the Rockets will need him to have the game of his life if they want to stand a chance against Golden State.

FOOTBALL

Colin Kaepernick Finally, in some “Athletes Doing Something Stupid On Social Media” News, the San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick is in hot water on Instagram.  Kaepernick uses the number ‘7’ (his jersey number) as a nickname on social media.  He posted a pic of the devastating Houston flood that has caused severe property damage, fatalities and homelessness and said, “Houston, the 7torm is coming”.  Everyone thought it was beyond distasteful, and Kaepernick immediately apologized saying he had no idea the extent of the real damage and horror in Houston.  He said, “No disrespect.  Prayers Up!”.  These athletes need to think before they talk (or tweet).
