Ah, the ‘Daily Noontime’ has officially returned – yay!
Yes, that is correct, everyone. The ‘Daily Noontime’ is back and will be with you going forward every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
Are you excited?
The format will be somewhat the same – maybe we can mix in some new links, etc. – but this is a post that has significant meaning to our blog when we launched/got started with creating content in May 2009.
So, let’s kick off a brand new day – and yes, a brand new week, too! – with the revamped ‘Daily Noontime.’ Have a great day, everyone!
Russell Wilson shines against the New England Patriots
Russell Wilson matched a career-high with five touchdown passes last night as the Seattle Seahawks topped the New England Patriots, 35-30.
Wilson and the Seahawks improved to 2-0n while the Patriots dipped to 1-1.
According to ESPN.com, Wilson “became only the fourth player in NFL history to throw at least four touchdown passes in each of his team’s first two games.”
Cam Newton and the Patriots did keep pace with Wilson and the Hawks for a majority of the contest but could not convert the go-ahead/game-winning touchdown pass on their final drive of the contest.
Seattle will host the Dallas Cowboys next week while the Patriots will entertain the Las Vegas Raiders.
NFL Coaches, Personnel need to ‘Mask Up!’
According to ProFootballTalk.com (PFT), the National Football League (NFL) will be in contact today – not sure exactly when? – with coaches and sideline personnel regarding masks and face covers not being worn during contests.
This is the second time PFT has blogged about this issue after seeing a slew of coaches – and yes, personnel, too – not cover their noses and mouths last week during the opening week of the 2020 season.
Just a reminder to everyone … we are living in a pandemic, so make sure to mask-up!
The Dallas Cowboys’ comeback was … incredible!
Yes, our site’s editor and founder (Matt Noonan) is a life-long Dallas Cowboysfan, but for some reason, he didn’t worry too much when ‘America’s Team’ was trailing by 20 points.
But somehow, Noonan’s team – that would be the Dallas Cowboys – erased the deficit and stunned the Atlanta Falcons for an exciting 40-39 victory yesterday at AT&T Stadium.
The win – not the prettiest – was VERY exciting and also proved that this Dallas Cowboys team has a lot more grit and toughness under first-year coach Mike McCarthy. Sorry, Jason Garrett!
Also, kudos to Greg Zuerlein for not just drilling the game-winning field goal, but also kicking the craziest onside kick that we have ever seen.
