ESPNEWS half Way Point

ESPN Breaking News The 2nd episode SportIVation aired produced and distributed Tom Jones (Tommanowns - Baltimore Ravens).

     

        On this edition of ESPNEWS It's Week 8, the 1/2 mark of the Season and it's time to look at what's going on in the NFASL. With Major changes this year to personell, and major moves in terms of coaches going from one team to another things could not be more interesting. The Houston Texans are are the Defending Super Bowl Champions winner of Super Bowl XXXIV, and so far they have been less than stellar posting a 4-4 record at the halfway point. The Super Bowl Hangover is in full effect for the Defending Champion, but they are not out of the race by far.   At the Half way point teams are starting to separate themselves with a few teams showing they are the creme of the Crop. Some of those teams are the New Orleans Saints, and Green Bay Packers who are the only two undefeated teams in the league at 6-0. The New England Patriots, Los Angeles Chargers, and Kansas City Chiefs are all 6-1. The Buffalo Bills are 5-1, and look like their Super Bowl Winning coach is back!   Of Course for every yen, there is a yang with some of the teams struggling mightily in this season. The Philadelphia Eagles, Tennessee Titans, and Tampa Buccaneers are all winless at the halfway point. The Titans are looking for a headcoach, and the Buccaneers just welcomed S6ixringy7 as their head honcho. The Carolina Panthers, Miami Dolphins, and surprisingly the Chicago Bears, and Los Angeles Rams all have 1 win.  It's still early however, so if these teams want to have any post season success they have to turn things around now. The other option is these teams will have to get into the War Room and work on their draft boards, and Free agency to make sure they don't have a season like this again in the future! 

  Lets take a look at the Conferences in the NFASL, and see how things are shaking out.

 

 

American Football Conference

 

 

 

 

 

    AFC North

  • Cincinatti Bengals 5-2
  • Pittsburgh Steelers 5-2
  • Baltimore Ravens 5-2
  • Cleveland Browns 3-4

AFC South

  • Indianapolis Colts 5-2
  • Houston Texans 4-4
  • Jacksonville Jaguars 2-4
  • Tennessee Titans 0-7

AFC East

  • New England Patriots 6-1
  • Buffalo Bills 5-1
  • New York Jets 3-4
  • Miami Dolphins 1-6

AFC West

  • Los Angeles Chargers 6-1
  • Kansas City Chiefs 6-1
  • Oakland Raiders 3-3
  • Denver Broncos 2-5

 

    In the AFC The Battle rages as it seems every team is in contention. The AFC North is a three way tie, the AFC West is a 2 way tie, and the East, and South are battling it out with teams right behind one another in the standings.

In the North Jacob Burreaux of the Cincinatti Bengals leads all passers with 1937 yards passing and 16 touchdowns. Lamar Jacksons Dual Threat ability still puts him in the lead as he has 1603 yards passing, and is 5th in the Division in rushing with 390 yards. The Pittsburgh Steelers with their scoring defense, and penchant for big plays on offense could put their long time headcoach in line for his first super Bowl Appearance. The Browns are looking for consistency out of their Star QB Kyler Murray, but have modeled their team after the Baltimore Ravens. This Division is pretty much up for grabs, and the Browns feel as though it's theirs to win .

    In the AFC South the QBs are struggling wit the Defending Super Bowl Champs Houston Texans finding life difficult without one of the leagues Best DeSean Watson as Feleipe Franks has struggled since taking over for the Traded Watson. In the South no QB has more Touchdowns than Interceptions so if any of these teams want to go on a run, they will have to rectify that immediately. 

  In the AFC East it's no wonder that both the New England Patriots, and Buffalo Bills only have 1 loss between them. Both Quarterbacks Jake Fromm, and Justin Fields are playing at a high level. They have been getting the ball to their big play receivers Curtis Samuel, and CeeDee Lamb which has been a boon for their offenses. The Jets are still in the mix as Dwayne Haskins is looking for a second life in the Big apple. The Miami Dolphis have been openly talking about trading their young QB Tua Tagovlailoa which can't bode well for the future of their franchise.

  In the AFC West the Patrick Mahomes has been playing like a MVP with 20tds, to only 4 ints and has the Chiefs out to a 6-1 record. They find themselves behind the Los Angeles Chargers in the the Division as a big time win in primetime put this loaded team on the top. Sammy Baugh J.R. and the pure unadulterated Speeded of Jerrion Ealy has been to much for opposing Defenses. The Raiders are not far behind but will need to close the gap before they find themselves out of the playoffs. The Denver Broncos has the leagues best offense, and the leagues worst defense. If they can put up a little resistance they could be a team in the future to watch out for. 

 

National Football Conference

 

 

 

 

 

NFC South

  • New Orleans Saints 6-0
  • Atlanta Falcons 2-4
  • Carolina Panthers 1-6
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers 0-6

NFC North

  • Green Bay Packers 6-0
  • Minnesota Vikings 5-2
  • Detroit Lions 2-4
  • Chicago Bears 1-6

NFC East

  • Washington Redskins 5-2
  • New York Giants 4-3
  • Dallas Cowboys 4-3
  • Philadelphia Eagles 0-8

NFC West

  • Arizona Cardinals 4-2
  • Seattle Seahawks 4-3
  • San Francisco 49ers 2-5
  • Los Angeles Rams 1-5

  In the NFC the conference is top heavy with 8 teams below .500 never a good sign for a division as Competition breeds champions. With 5 teams with 1 or fewer wins, things are looking bleak in the Once mighty NFC.

  In the NFC North the Baker Mayfield Lead Green Bay Packers have been on a tear as their all or none offense has wreaked havoc on opposing secondaries. Baker Mayfield is in line for Leagues MVP, and their coach could be up for a second banner hanging in the Hall of Champions. The Minnesota Vikings are 2 games behind the Packers with Justin Love playing well, but will need to get the two headed monster of Dalvin Cook, and D'Andre Swift across the goalline if they want to pound teams into submission. The 4 time Super Bowl Winning Bears headcoach has found himself in a rebuilding year and at 1-6 have found himself in a situation that many didn't believe could happen. The Coach of the Lions has the arguably the best young QB prospect in recent years, but he has yet to figure out the complex Defenses of the NFL. If Trevor Lawrence is unable to reverse his penchant for throwing the Intserception his career may be short lived.

in the NFC South the New Orleans Saints are rolling with a 6-0 record, Joey Burreaux has cemented himself as one of the leagues Best, and Alvin Kamara is building on his already Hall of Fame career. unfortunately for the rest of the Division they only have 3 wins between them, and that lack of competition for the Saints could come back to bite them in the playoffs. Poor QB Play has been the Culprit as DeSean Watson was supposed to change the fortunes in Atlanta. He has played well, but no where close to the MVP caliber seasons that he had in Houston. The Panthers Have Kellen Mond, and the Buccaneers have Jack Miller both Young inexperienced QBs which is always a learning process. Their success may come in the future, but as of now they need to find a offense that fits them.

In the NFC West the Arizona Cardinals lead the division Isaiah Spiller making his bid for MVP. The Cardinals are doing it the old fashioned way with Defense, and a strong run game as their second year Quarterback Carson Beck is the lowest rated. The Seahawks are hot on their heels behind a dominant season from D.K. Metcalf, and Taulia Tagovailoa brother of Tua. With the Niners having another down year the Seahawks have to feel as though this is their Division to win. The Niners headcoach, two time Super Bowl winning headcoach Kaliko should be back from his hiatus, to only find his niners 3 games back, and a half a season to catch up. The Rams under the tutelage of coach Dino has been pedestrian, but with arguably the best collection of talent in the league, they cannot be counted out no matter what their record is. 

  In the NFC East the Washington Redskins lead the Division at 5-2 but it has been smoke and mirrors. Bryce Young has struggled in his second season as QB, and will need to get control his penchant for the Turnover if they want to hold off both the Dallas Cowboys, and the New York Giants. The Giants are a game behind the Redskins, and with Saquon Barkley, leading the Division in Rushing they will always have a chance. The Giants have been trying to turn the team over to 5 year pro Jalen Hurts, however if they want success they may have to go by the way of Strong Defense, good rushing game. The Dallas Cowboys also find themselves  1 game behind the Redskins, and tied with the Giants. The Cowboys have Justin Herbert whose arm strength is second to none. being ablt to hit any throw makes this Cowboys team extremely dangerous, especially with the addition of Chris Tyree home run running ability.  The Final team in the East are the Winless Eagles and all of his losses can be squarely placed on the right arm of Carson Wentz who has thrown a 2nd worse in the league 26 interceptions.

Team Statistics: In the NFL the teams with the best stats normally have the best seasons. This year is no different. It takes every aspect of a team to win games, and while you can have one do well and not the other  over a full season it will show and prove in your final win loss record. So far the tops in the league are those we are about to show here. Let's take a look.

 

 

Offensive Yards Rush Yards Pass Yards
3259 1343 2377
Defensive Yards  Defensive Sacks Defensive Interceptions
