The rest of America dreads the day racist St. Louis Cardinals fans or racist Boston Red Sox fans celebrate a World Series title, but Ben Hartsock is still excited about baseball. His imitation of an MLB umpire came after Chris Long punched a Panthers player, which resulted in Long's ejection.
Meanwhile, one of Hartsock's former teammates is riding a streak of hitting game winning field goals. He is the most dominant offensive force in the AFC North.
DeVier Posey has, apparently, made a full recovery from a major injury. Plus, Eleven Warriors has stats from Posey and all the former Buckeyes in the NFL.
In many ways, Mike Nugent is just like you. Don’t you wish you could relive your glorious collegiate days? When you crushed an epic amount of Natty and tail, bro?
The 2004 Lou Groza Award winner has hit eight of his 10 field goal attempts on the season.
NFL teams were busy shifting around Buckeyes last week, and that momentum carried over to this week.
The Packers added Jake Stoneburner to their active roster, and outfitted him in pants that are not flattering for tight ends (certainly not a result of being scared of their week seven opponent).
To the dismay of those in his home state, Stoneburner’s first NFL highlight was a roughing the punter penalty. To his credit, the flag brought Brandon Weeden back onto the field, and he promptly threw an interception.
The undrafted Howard entered training camp on the Texans roster, but was waived in one of Houston’s final rounds of cuts. He was a free agent until the Patriots added him to their practice squad.
Justin Boren participated in training camp with the Broncos before injuring his toe. Denver placed him on injured reserve, where he sat until being waived. Boren, who previously played for the Ravens and Lions, is now a free agent.
Highlight of the week
Case Keenum made his first NFL start and didn't consistently throw it to the other team – the opposite of what Matt Schaub did. One of his passes went to DeVier Posey, who is coming off a torn Achilles tendon. Posey had his first notable highlight of the year, with this nice catch and run.
