Last week, Gardner Minshew was not only voted Football Guy of the Week by the AWL's, but the story he told when joining the show about his strategy to gain extra college eligibility was bonkers. This week's nominees vary from fullbacks being fullbacks, player celebrations, and more Bill Belichick. Let's check out the finalists in depth:
Packers FB Danny Vitale- Got tackled at the 1-yard line and said he didn't want to score so he could set up a fullback assist opportunity
Perfect execution by our recurring guest here. Now that the FBA is an official stat, the next plan of action should be receiving fantasy points for them. We may not care about your fantasy team, but we would certainly care about you having a fullback on your team who earns points for leading the way towards the end zone.
Bills TE Lee Smith- Said "My wife's about to be the only one that can make me feel better than that. That's just the facts" after the team's undefeated start
(Side note: I know this was last week, but the Bills are still undefeated) At least he's honest. I wonder how Mr. Smith would feel if he and the Bills can upset the Patriots at home this week. Still probably No. 2 in the power rankings behind his wife if I had to guess, but the gap could potentially be closed.
Rutgers OL Michael Maietti- Punched QB Artur Sitkowski in the face after the Scarlet Knights scored a TD
Intentional or not, I hope members of the Rutgers program saw this clip and now start to make it a consistent thing. They are off to The Big House this weekend, so there would definitely be some extra spotlight if they can score some touchdowns against Michigan.
Patriots HC Bill Belichick- Stared down CBS reporter Dana Jacobson after getting asked about Antonio Brown
I'll say it. I feel bad for a fellow Big J here, and a well-respected one, too. No matter what level you are at though, it's always going to be tough to get words with substance out of Coach Belichick. While we're on the topic, this now marks three straight weeks New England's man at the helm is a Football Guy of the Week nominee.
