I'm not above gimmickry to get my voice heard, and since countdown lists are all the rage these days, I'm jumping into the fray with my signature style. 

Today I'll still be serving up some tasty tunes, but instead of just a recap, quip and a pseudo-prediction, why not dedicate songs to the five best and worse players from sunday?  Sound good? 

Of course it does, let's spin these steel wheels! =

Five Up

Matt Schaub

527 passing yards to go along with five touchdowns is nothing to sneeze at, unless you're Norm Van Brocklin. It was non-stop yards for Schaub in the second half but more importantly, Schaub keyed the comeback against a feisty Jacksonville Jaguars team led by the next man up on our list.

Song: All Night Long by Lionel Richie 

Relevant lyrics: 

"Yeah, once you get started

You can't sit down

Come join the fun

It's a merry go round"


Chad Henne

Raise your hands if you started Chad Henne for your fantasy team this week.  What, only like, 20 people in the entire world?  Yeah, that's how far off the radar Chad Henne has been this season until his monster game.  At one time, many scouts and coaches thought he had the potential to be a winning quarterback.  Perhaps he's found that potential?

Song: It's My Life by Bon Jovi

Relevant lyrics:

"It's my life 

And it's now or never 

I ain't gonna live forever 

I just want to live while I'm alive"


Andre Johnson

273 receiving yards and the game-winning catch and run.  I distinctly remember pundits and arm-chair fantasy experts dogging Johnson at the beginning of the season--'he's lost a step', 'he's not even the third best receiver in the conference'--so much for that noise.

Song: Break Stuff by Limp Bizkit

Relevant Lyrics:

"My suggestion is to keep your distance, cuz right now im dangerous"


Von Miller

Entirely possible this monster is the defensive player of the year. 3 sacks and 2 forced fumbles will go a long way to helping secure that piece of hardware for his mantle. 

Song: Strange Clouds by B.O.B ft Lil Wayne

Relevant lyrics:

"I do my job exceptionally, on point like a decimal is.

The way I ride on the beat man I be in the street it's done so effortlessly"


Julian Edelman

The all-purpose player from Kent State was all over the field; returning punts for touchdowns, running reverses, and catching passes.  Bill Belichick loves these types of players. Don't be surprised when Edelman lines up to kick a field goal sometime soon. 

Song: Don't Stop Me Now by Queen

Relevant lyrics:

"I'm a shooting star leaping through the skies

Like a tiger defying the laws of gravity

I'm a racing car passing by like Lady Godiva

I'm gonna go go go

There's no stopping me"


Five Down

Andrew Luck

I said it in last week's One-Liners: Belichick loves humiliating rookie quarterbacks.  I'd say Luck was completely humiliated.  Just another learning experience for the rookie, in time, this will just be a blip on the radar for him.

Song: O.E. by Hop Hobson

Relevant lyrics:

"I got bias

I got struggles, I got by it

I got jobs, I got hired

I lost jobs, and got fired

I been sick from bein' sick and tired

I been me and will be until the day that I expire"
