Welcome to The Truda Report everybody. A lot happened this week in the NFL so I'm going to quickly hit on the biggest story lines. Before I get into that though I would like to quickly mention that my New York Yankees have cut the Astros Lead to 2-1 in the ALCS, and I'm seeing another great team in the making. Make sure to share this article because it helps TTR grow.
My Super Bowl pick for this year was the Green Bay Packers, because I said Aaron Rodgers would once again lead his team to the promised land. Well, Rodgers can't even lead his team to the Playoffs this year. In Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings Rodgers took a huge hit and broke the right side of his collarbone. Brett Hundley, the Packers backup QB, has been with the team for a couple of years and knows the system, but he is obviously no Rodgers. If I'm Green Bay's general manager, I'm picking up the phone and giving Colin Kaepernick a call.
The Patriots won a very close game against the New York Jets this week, and all of the talk has been about what was an incredibly terrible call which negated a Gang Green touchdown. I don't really want to focus on that though. What I want to point out is that Tom Brady, in winning that game, has become the NFL's most winningest quarterback in all of history. I don't think Tom Brady's the GOAT, but I will afford him this: He is the WOAT (Winningest Of All Time).
The Atlanta Falcons watched a lot of Super Bowl 51 game tape before this weeks game against the Miami Dolphins. After heading into half time with a dominant 17-0 lead, the Falcons proceeded to get shut out in the second half and lose 20-17. As a Miami Dolphins fan I'm ecstatic, but as an analyst I'm now officially worried for Atlanta. They can't keep doing this to themselves, or they'll never be able to win a Super Bowl. The best teams close.
Winning and Losing for the First Time:
On Sunday Night Football the New York Giants won their first game of the season against a very good Denver Broncos team. Just a couple hours before that, the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the previously undefeated Kansas City Chiefs, leaving no team undefeated for the rest of the year. Once again, the '72 Dolphins record lives on.
