Where is the Fight!

Have you ever got excited to watch a boxing match and the fight ended so fast because one of the boxers got knocked into next week in the first? That's what the San Francisco 49ers verses the Indianapolis Colts game looked like.

The 49ers got punched in the mouth again and didn't fight back, losing to the Colts 27-7. It was like 49ers' quarterback Colin Kaepernick was trying to fight with both hands behind his back because his receivers couldn't get open if their lives depended on it. In Kaepernick's last two games he posted a 32,2 passer rating, committing six turnovers.

I guess that's what happens when you're playing without Vernon Davis, Michael Crabtree, and Mario Manningham due to injury, which are the leading receivers from last year. It's like going to a gun fight with a knife. Not the right weapon!

What happen to the 49ers' defense? They let the soft Colts' offensive line man handle them at the line of scrimmage. The Colt seemed like they can part the Red Sea the way they opened holes against one of the best run defenses in recent years. The Colts racked up 179 rushing yards.

"We felt flat," cornerback Tarell Brown said. "We felt flat and looked flat."

Is Taking Candy From a Baby Really Wrong?

Well, the Oakland Raiders got their candy, baby bottle, and their rattle taken from them by the Denver Broncos, falling 37-21.

Really the Raiders knew they were in for it playing the Broncos.They couldn't get any pass rush and they gave up 179 yards after the catch. Their secondary got torched and their confidence was knocked out of them early.

Broncos' quarterback Payton Manning went 32 for 37 for 374 yards.

Quarterback Terrelle Pryor and corner back Tracy Porter had concussions after the beating they took by the Broncos.

Broncos! Please give the Raiders their candy back!

Playoff Bound

The Oakland Athletics are going to the post season once again with one of the major league's lowest payrolls. They only have four players earning over $5 million. They finished second in the American league in with a 3.59 earned run average

Third baseman Josh Donaldson had a breakout season, posting a .307 batting average, with 92 RBI's, and 24 home-runs. They also had a good season out of Coco Crisp, who hit 22 home-runs and drove in 65 runs from the lead off position.

The Athletics has the most wins in the major league in the last two years with 187 victories.

General Manager definitely deserves manager of the year honors with he has done with another low payroll A's team.
