Tim Tebow No Longer A Bronco, The Saints Bounty Penalties Handed Out, & Ame's Player Of The Week

Tim Tebow, known as God's favorite quarter back, has been shipped out of Denver and into New York. That's right! He is now apart of the Jets. One could be a little confused as to what did good old Timmy do to be sent packing, but please do not lose to much time pondering this, because truth be told he did nothing wrong. 

Before Tim took over as quarter back last season the Bronco's had only won one out of five games. With a little bit of help from God, Tim and his teammates went from being in the bottom of the AFC West to the top of their division. Then they got into the playoffs, and lo and behold they beat the Pittsburgh Steelers. His playing style may not have been pretty, but he won games. The sad part was his reward from John Elway which was, sorry who cares we managed to snag Peyton Manning so you are out of here. Can we say cut throat? Okay he did not say those exact words, but actions speak louder than words.

Peyton Manning would look like the sure pick to most because of his four MVP's and Super Bowl championship. However, there are some down sides to Mr. Manning. He is 36 years old, which is like 50 in NFL years. He broke his neck and has had multiple surgeries. Last but not least he did not play one game last season, which means he is probably rusty. 

With all that being said, it changes nothing because the deal is done and Tim is no longer a Bronco. It's just a sad day when a man takes a team from nothing to something and gets rewarded by getting the boot.

The Saints Bounty Penalties Handed Out

NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, was not playing today as he handed out some pretty huge fines to the New Orleans Saints for their participation in the Bounty scandal.

1. The head coach, Sean Payton,  is suspended 1 year and is reported to lose about 7 million dollars.
2. Mickey Loomis, who is the General Manager, is suspended for 8 games and fined $500,000.
3. The New Orleans Saints franchise got hit with a $500,000 fine and they will lose two 2nd round draft picks in 2012 and 2013.
4. Joe Vitt, the assistant head coach, is suspended without pay for the first 6 games of the 2012 season.
Last but not least, Gregg Williams, who is the former defensive coordinator, is suspended indefinitely.

AME's Player Of The Week
Kobe Bryant

Five time NBA champion, Kobe Bryant, has almost single handedly picked up his Los Angeles Lakers, put them on his back, and taken them to the number one spot in the Pacific division.  He is averaging 28.7 points, 4.8 assists, and 5.7 rebounds per game. The Lakers have won their last five out of seven games.  The Black Mamba is on a quest to win his sixth NBA championship. Will he be able to get it done this year or will one of the teams out West stop him before he even gets a chance to make it to the NBA finals? Only time will tell and we will have to wait to see what happens.
