The San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick is talented, gutsy, but he has a small problem. He still needs to learn how to play quarterback. Needs to learn how to play from the pocket. Funny, with all that the running quarterbacks are doing these days it still comes down standing in the pocket and throwing the ball down field.
If You Ever Saw…
…The Washington Redskins play in the 1980s and you saw how the fans were at RFK then you can understand what its like to see the Seahawks in Seattle on Sunday. Talk about a college atmosphere. Awesome.
Quote of the Weekend
“I wanted soft, because once I lit the fuse I became an inferno.”—NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp on the music he listened to before a big game.
Quote of the Weekend II
“I’m the best corner in the game!”—Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman.
Is everyone aware that Pasadena Marshall moves in the Mission Valley League next fall? Not only will Marshall be the third school in the MVL nicknamed “Eagles”, it will be potentially the dominate force in a short time. Stay tuned.
Did You Know…?
Did you know that it takes 3,000 cows to create enough footballs for the NFL to use in a single season?
Boys Basketball Note
The Gabrielino Eagles are 2-0 in league and 14-3 overall. Eagles head coach John Carney is not blessed with one scorer, but three in Bryan Phan (18.1), Eli Peters (16.2), and Grant Kirchoff (14.2). A rarity in area basketball and it makes them the favorite to run away with the Mission Valley League.
Girls Basketball Note
The El Monte Lions are 8-6 and 2-0 in Mission Valley League play. Tiyana Watkins leads the team averaging 12 points and nine rebounds per game for Cristine Butler’s squad.
“I thought El Monte looked good before the season, coaching makes a huge difference,” said former Rosemead Panthers head coach Jay Gauthier Sr.
