Sammy Vegas - NFL "N"sider #8

While I was bellied up to the bar last Sunday catching all of the NFL games, I glanced over to the Carolina and Cleveland game. It got me thinking, whatever happened to the Carolina cheerleaders that had sex in a Tampa Bay nightclub? Last November, the two girls, Renee Thomas and Angela Keathley, were arrested after local patrons complained they were having loud sex (is there any other kind?)in the girl’s bathroom. In fact Thomas actually punched another woman in the mouth, prompting a bar fight. When police showed up, Thomas gave police a fake i.d. and Keathley was so drunk she couldn’t stand up. Thomas, 21, is pursuing a doctorate in dental surgery and Keathley, 27, is a registered nurse. THAT IS SO AWESOME!!!

If they outlaw lesbian sex in bathrooms, only outlaws will be having lesbian sex in bathrooms.

Interestingly, I encountered a similar situation while on the way to the USC – Nebraska tilt in September. Our own Dr. D and DXP friend Lobster Bob, were discovered getting loud and frisky on the back of the Big Red Bus. Although Dr. D is unable to recall details, Lobster Bob has repeatedly denied a conjugal restroom visit between the two.

I'll let you be the judge

Now, how about those Huskers in the NFL?

Josh Brown (K): The Seattle Seahawks had the week open, and don’t look for things to get any easier as it was just announced that Shaun Alexander will miss this week again.

Kris Brown (K): Kris, who is 3/3 on field goals this year, and his Houston Texans (1-3) had the week off and next week travel to Dallas.

Mike Brown (S): Brown had 2 tackles and 1 assist in the Chicago Bears’ 40-7 win over the Buffalo Bills. At 5-0 and going up, the 1972 Miami Dolphins are no doubt taking notice of the 2006 Chicago Bears.

Ralph Brown (CB): Ralph contributed nothing to the Cleveland Browns as they lost to Carolina 20-12 and dropped to 1-4 overall.

Correll Buckhalter (RB): In one of the most anticipated games of the season, Buckhalter and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Dallas Cowboys 38-24. Correll had only 16 yards on 4 carries, but what is most important here is that Donovan McNabb proved he might indeed be the best QB in the NFL despite what some of the Cowboy’s receivers would tell you.

Daniel Bullocks (S): Daniel and the Detroit Lions fell to 0-5 after they blew a 17-3 4th quarter lead and lost 26-17 to the Minnesota Vikings. Bullocks, once again, looked great with 5 tackles and 3 assists, and he now has 29 tackles on the season.

Josh Bullocks (S): Bullocks had his best game as a Saint with 10 solo tackles in a 24-21 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Saints, aka “America’s Team,” got late game heroics from 2nd overall pick Reggie Bush as he returned a punt 65 yards for a TD with just under 4 minutes to play.

Scott Shanle (LB): Scott helped out his old teammate, J. Bullocks, with 5 solo stops and 3 assisted tackles. Bullocks and Shanle have been key contributors to the 4-1 and division leading New Orleans Saints. Shanle has 30 tackles and 2 sacks this year and Bullocks has 29 tackles and 1 INT.

Ahman Green (RB): Green once again sat this one out as he watched Brett Favre and the rest of the Green Bay Packers fall to 1-4. This was the second straight week Green did not play due to a sore hamstring.

Mike Minter (S): Minter has 1 INT for the Carolina Panthers as they won their 3rd straight game by beating the Cleveland Browns 20-12. Minter also contributed 2 solo tackles and 2 assisted tackles.

Mike Rucker (DE): Along with Minter, Rucker was a key contributor to the Carolina Panther’s win over the Browns last week. Rucker added 3 solo tackles and 3 assisted tackles and the Panthers are just a game back of the New Orleans Saints in the AFC South.

Chris Kelsey (DE): With 4 solo and 2 assisted tackles, Kelsey could do little to help his Bills (2-3) as they were pounded by the Bears 40-7.

Sam Koch (P): Koch had a great night on MNF with 6 punts for an average of 42 yards, with one inside the 20. Unfortunately, his Baltimore Ravens did not have such a great night as they lost their first game of the season 13-3 to the Denver Broncos.

Kyle Larson (P): The Cincinnati Bengals (3-1) had the week off and travel to Tampa Bay this weekend.

Barrett Ruud (LB): Ruud had 1 solo tackle for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their loss to the Saints. If you happened to see highlights of Reggie Bush’s game winning punt return for a TD, then you might have seen the back of Ruud’s jersey as he was chasing him down – uhh, I meant trying to chase him down.

Kyle Vanden Bosch (DE): Vanden Bosch had a great game with 5 solo tackles as his Tennessee Titans, led by Vince Young, gave everything the Indianapolis Colts could handle. It took a TD pass from Peyton Manning with 5 minutes to play to give Indy a 14-13 win.

Fabian Washington (DB): Washington missed another week with injury in the Raiders 34-20 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. I saw a great poll question on ESPN a few days ago: Which is more likely to happen? The Bears go 16-0 or the Raiders go 0-16? Over 60% of American thinks the Raiders have a better chance of going 0-16. Pathetic.

Demorrio Williams (LB): The Atlanta Falcons (3-1) had the week off this week and are at home this week against the New York Giants. Look for Demorrio to add to his team leading 30 tackles.

Grant Wistrom (DE): The Seahawks (3-1) had the week off and travel to St. Louis this weekend where Wistrom will get a shot at his former teammates and franchise that drafted him #6 overall in the 1998 NFL draft.
