Evolution of End Zone Dancing and More

Before you head out and about this weekend for college football or to watch your NFL guys, check out Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake break down the End Zone dance #peeyourpantsfunny

Mr. Fallon wasn’t done after displaying his moves with JT! Real satisfaction could only come after a REAL NFL player performed one of his touchdown dances. Because end zone dancing is frowned upon in the NFL, Fallon offered to match the $10,000 fine from the league and donate it to that player’s favorite charity.

Rookie tight end Joseph Fauria took to some N’SYNC after he scored his five yard touchdown during the Lions’ 27-20 win over the Redskins on Sunday.

Fauria tweeted “you may hate me, but it ain’t no lie” after Sunday’s game. He may have only been 10 years old when “Bye Bye Bye” was released, but it looks like we have a JT fan on our hands. “We were going nuts,” Fallon said on the show. “We all saw it on Twitter and we were going crazy.”

The NFL didn’t end up fining Fauria, however Fallon stuck to his word and donated $10,000 to the charity of the rookie’s choice.

I love Jimmy Fallon and I love football 🙂

Storied Rivals on the MNF Stage

Hopefully this is the result of tonight's matchup

It’s very simple, the Bears must beat the 4-0 Detroit Lions at Ford Field tonight. Seriously, the Lions cannot be undefeated at 5-0 in the NFC, mind you they have not seen that record in 55 years. I don’t think they need to break the streak.

Tonight will be a true test to see just how impressive this young and confident Detroit Lions team really is, on national Television no less. The Lions have not played on the Monday night football stage in over a decade (2001 was their last appearance), and things have changed quite a bit since then. Are they true contenders? There is no doubt WR Calvin Johnson is an extremely talented player with two touchdowns every game this season – they don’t call him Megatron for nothin’. But we can’t overlook the two come from behind wins of 20 point deficits or more…was it luck or true talent?

Martz needs to forego his pass happy tactics and create some stability with the running game, because if Matt Forte can produce rushing yards like last week, our offense may be in good shape – and it should keep Jay Cutler off his back. Speaking of, our offensive line MUST contain Ndamukong Suh the pro-bowler defensive tackle. Our defense needs to make some big plays, I wouldn’t mind another DJ Moore pick 6 and for Julius Peppers to sack me some Matthew Stafford. And for the finishing touch we can always use a Devin Hester return for a TD.

The Bears have won the last 6 games against the Lions, let’s make it 7!
