Chainsaw and Dave

Another supporting characters blog here, this time focusing on two guys who have made Summer School into a favorite movie of mine. The cast had some good actors going for it, pre NCIS Mark Harmon and a pre Cheers Kristie Alley were the stars but it was none other then Chainsaw and Dave who made the movie for me.

Chainsaw and Dave:

Dean Cameron who is sort a 1980's B star plays Francis 'Chainsaw' Gremp. Dave was played by Gary Riley. Why neither of the actors has made it big Cameron has had his fair share of movies, he was in the cult classic ski comedies Ski School 1 and 2 and has been in episodes of the following Tv shows: Mad About You, Party of Five, ER, Will and Grace, and Felicity.

Gary Riley aka Dave, also had his fair share of TV work, including: Amazing Stories, Airwolf, Growing Pains, Silver Spoons, Knots Landing and was in Stand By Me and played Guy #1 in Back to the Future, not a bad resume if you ask me.

But of course these two fine actors will always be Chainsaw and Dave, two guys who made school fun by pulling pranks and drinking while underage. I think Chainsaw and Dave could have always had their own spin off movie, or in the least be horror movie commentators on some all night horror channel. Here is a clip of how they get a substitute to leave by using their great make-up techniques.

Supporting Characters

This is a column about those actors who did a great job in some small role, but are people that I think really stand out when I see a movie. Todays supporting character comes the action defining movie, Die Hard.


De'voreaux White portrays what could be the coolest chauffeur in movie history. Argyle is a cool guy who loves big tips and rocking out to Christmas in Hollis my Run Dmc. He also happens to like chilling out in parking lots and tends to not notice buildings being taken over.

I think I recall Argyle so much because he is a cool cat and he and John McClane form an instant bond. Argyle just wants to chill and talk up some girls but when things go down he ends up using his limo as a tool for good and takes out some terrorists in the process.

Got to give it up for Argyle and De'voreux White's short yet memorable performance. White, really didn't blow up after his role he was mostly a TV show guy, and would go on to be in Frankenstein: The College Years in 1991 as well as playing Second Transvestite in the 2000 film Shadow Hours.

At least we all remember that cool and hip chauffeur who understood the problems between men and women in Die Hard, I salute you Argyle!

Films in 2010

I did this column last year looking forward to such films as Watchmen, G.I. Joe, Inglourious Basterds, Fanboys, Public Enemies, Sherlock Holmes, and The Wolf Man. This year looks to have even more movies that make me excited, here are just a few of the movies I am eagerly awaiting in 2010:

Kick-Ass - Ever since I bought the first issue of this comic book while on vacation in Los Angeles I knew this would be something special. The movie version has come out really quickly but has a lot of talent in it, including director Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake and Stardust) and Nicholas Cage. The movie simply shows what would happen if normal type people decided to be superheros. I think the movie will play for a lot of laughs but also kick major ass!

Clash of the Titans - This movie looks like a ton of fun, you get a lot of action and some good special effects. Any movie that has Liam Neeson as Zeus and Ralph Fiennes as Hades cannot be all that bad. I think this will be a fun action/adventure flick, the preview makes me long to see the Kraken!

The Wolfman - Making its second appearance on my list, it was scheduled to be released in 2009 but was pushed back, not usually a great sign. This time the movie should come out in early 2010 and the good news I hear is that it's rated R. The previews they have released so far look pretty good, and I am still pretty stoked to see the movie.

Iron Man 2 - The first one was so much fun that how couldn't you be stoked to see Robert Downey Jr. come back?! The first preview released shows that they are sticking to the same fun loving type movie, and you get to see War Machine in action!!

Alice In Wonderland - Tim Burton directs and Johnny Depp is the mad hatter, need I say more? I am looking forward to seeing the world that Burton creates for Alice, the movie were always somewhat trippy as is/was. I always like Burton's take on classic stories, and this movie looks pretty fun and its in that disney 3-D so the visuals should look amazing, peep it here:

The A-Team - I remember having the toys of the A-Team as a kid, not to sure if I recall the show itself, but this movie looks pretty cool. I was a tad worried when I heard they were remaking the show into a movie but so far the preview looks cool. You have Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley (District 9), Jessica Biel, and a guy who looks a lot like Mr. T used to (Quintin Jackson). So for the movie looks fun, and I like the use of the old tv show theme in the trailer.

Toy Story 3 - I love most Pixar movies and since I am always a big kid i am really looking forward to Toy Story 3, this time the boy from the movie has grown up and no longer needs his toys. The gang of toys now find themselves being played with by all new kids and embark on some new adventures. Can't wait to see Toy Story 3!

Hot Tub Time Machine - How can't you look forward to a movie with that title? It has a good cast and the preview looks really funny, but I have this on my list for the title alone. Cant wait to see how these guys act and change things up when they are transported back to the 80's, the preview makes me laugh a lot. Cusak!

The Expendables - I mentioned this movie in an earlier post and the trailer confirms that this movie should be all action. You have this amazing cast all in one movie: Slyvester Stalone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren, and cameos from Arnold and Bruce Willis have been confirmed. This movie just has too much muscle to let me down!

Inception - Christopher Nolan (Dark Knight) directs and Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard and Joesph Gordon Levitt star...I think thats about all I need to say. Easily one of the most anticipated movies for me in 2010.

The Green Hornet - You have Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) directing and a script from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Superbad and Pineapple Express) and the movie stars Seth Rogen, cameron Diaz and Chritoph Waltz (in his follow up too Inglourious Basterds) and I do not see why this movie will look and be amazing. Cannot wait to see the trailer for this and see how they have a nice mix of serious action yet with a comedy twist.

Paul - Another film that has a good cast and director. Paul is a film by Greg Mottola (Superbad and Adventureland) and reuintes stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead & Hot Fuzz). This time the guys are two sci-fi geeks who head to Area 51 looking for aliens. I cant wait to see how this movie looks, the cast also includes Sigourney Weaver and Jane Lynch. This one should be a great comedy.

Predators - Predators is the long follow up to Preadtor II, I think. Any info about the movie is sketchy at this time but the cast is very intriguing for a movie like this. So far they have announced Lauernce Fishbourne, Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, and Danny Trejo. Quite the cast there...this one looks to be more of man v.s predator and should be a lot of fun to see what they do here.

Get Him to the Greek - This movie is a sort of sequel to Forgetting Sarah Marshall from what I am hearing. You have the same director of Sarah Marshall (Nicolas Stoller) and Rusell Brand is renewing his character Aldous Snow from Sarah Marshall. This movie also stars Jonah Hill as a record company intern in charge of getting Snow to a show at the Greek theatre in Los Angeles. I am eager to see how this movie looks, I hope it has the same humor from Sarah Marshall.

A few more...

Cop Out - Kevin Smith directs someone else's movie for the first time, and it has a pretty good cast in Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan as two old partners on the case.

Due Date - The Hangover's Todd Phillphs follow up stars Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis, and is a road trip movie about Downey's character getting home to see his child being born.

Machete - It is awesome that they even making this movie, a movie that was made out of a fake trailer from the Grindhouse movies. Danny Trejo is back as Machete and rumors about the cast seem pretty awesome. Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Steven Segal, Lindsay Lohan, Don Johson, and Rose McGowan all have parts in the movie.

#1 MOVIE OF 2000-2009 is...

#1 - Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Two Towers (2002), and Return of the King (2003)

Not one movie.... THREE!!!!

There was no doubt in my mind that when I started writing this list that these movies would be #1. I just love what Peter Jackson did here with these movies, they are not only well acted and jaw dropping cool looking but they have some real intense action that keeps you glued to the screen the entire run time (which was pretty long). These movies also work out really well with the extended cuts on dvd, the dvds really add a lot to the movies and make them an overall better trilogy. Since the re-release of the Star Wars prequels LOTR is now tied with Star Wars as my favorite series of films ever. These movies were so good that each one was nominated for best picture, that alone is mind blowing! I loved just every movie the same, they all really are well done pictures, in reality they were all filmed at the same time so they play out well as one gigantic movie, but breaking them up also works well and just made me have to wait another year to see how the movie unfolded. If I had to say I had a favorite it would be ROTK, because the movie did not disappoint in giving me the climax I so desired, it fact I would say it was my favorite film ending of the decade. What happened here with all three movies will most likely never happen again, and not to honor these movies as #1 would be an injustice to movie making in general. So there ya go my #1 movie of the decade. I hope you enjoyed this list!


#2 - The Dark Knight (2008)
Christopher Nolan creates the best comic book movie ever made in the stunning and brillant film The Dark Knight. With the origin story out of the way (this hinders most first time comic book movies) Nolan was able to get the plot started right away, this time the Joker is the bad guy and he sure is badass. Heath Ledger gave a perfect performance as the Joker. He is a villain that truly scares you because he is smart and yet unpredictable. The other villain of the film, is Two Face/ Harvey Dent and he is worked into the film really well, he starts off good but by the time his character is transformed it just works so well with the entire theme of the movie. You have some amazing shots here (I saw it on IMAX) and the film has a grit and makes Gotham a vital part to the movie. The moivie makes you look at what a real hero is, in this instance is taking the blame being a hero? You have Christian Bale as Batman, who almost takes a backseat to the viliians, but still gives life to the Bruce Wayne character. If you ever want to see how a comic book movie can become something bigger than no look for further than The Dark Knight.

#3 - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) Another movie that took a few viewing to grow on me. I will admit watching this movie after being dumped after a long term relationship really makes your eyes open to the real point and meaning of the movie, but the movie works no matter what. Michel Gondry directed and co-wrote the flick with Charlie Kaufman and you receive what I would call one of Jim Carrey's best dramatic performances (as well as Truman Show). He is Joel Barish a man who wants to remove all memories of his ex Clemetine (Kate Winslet). They both undergo procedures to remove the memories of their relationships and as his memories of their love fade away he starts to realize that he still loves her. The reason that I love this movie so much is that it paints a realistic question, even though you were in a relationship the ended would you do it all over again even if you knew it would end? I think this is just a visually stunning beautifully well done movie that will touch anyone who has thought they had found the "one" and would like to go back and try it again.


#4 - Kill Bill Vols 1-2 (2003 & 2004)A movie so nice they had to release it twice! Kill Bill is Quentin Tarantino's eye popping sword killing kick ass masterpiece revenge flick. The run time of the movie was so long that they decided to break the movie it two, and to be honest it works because the first movie is much different then the tone of the second. I have yet to see both films back to back, I was hoping we would have a dvd of the films cut together, its only been about six years now! You get all the fun of the Tarantino experience in the two flick, which includes amazing dialogue and some really nice action. Uma Thurman is the bride (later he learn what her real name is....) and the little twist ending at the end of the first movie was what I will call my biggest shock of any movie I saw in 2000's. I was just floored and I instantly could not wait to see what would happen next! Kill Bill Vol 1-2 are just plain fun movies!


#5 - Donnie Darko (2001) I will admit I did not get this movie the first time I saw it, in fact I really did not even enjoy it until I went and saw the directors cut. But when I saw that one, it totally opened my eyes and everything just fell into place and I instantly knew that Donnie Darko was a great movie. Richard Kelly wrote and directed this movie, and sadly it seems he peaked here with this movie but man what a great debut! Jake Gyllenhaal (who seems to frequent this list) is Donnie, a teen who's life gets complicated due to time travel, a bunny, and jet engine. I will not try to explain the movie because it has to be seen, but I would recommend you see it a few times to get all the little things that this movie throws at you. Donnie Darko is another sci-fi masterpiece and the use of music adds a lot to the atmosphere of the film. If you want to see a trippy yet awesome flick then look no further.

#6 - Knocked Up (2007) Another Judd Apatow amazing film, I place Knocked Up higher on my list for a few reasons. The first is that Seth Rogen really is great as Ben Stone, he comes across as such a normal guy and just nails the part. I think the best part of the film comes from his friends, this time they are played by Jonah Hill, Jason Segel, Martin Starr, and Jay Baruchel they alone made this movie so good. But you also get a serious look at a marriage on the rocks between Debbie (Leslie Mann) and Pete (Paul Rudd), they are glimpse into a marriage that is probably a tad to realistic today. Ben of course knocks up Alison (the gorgeous Katherine Heigel) and instead of not telling Ben she lets him participate and the couple start to fall for one another until something goes wrong. Overall this is my favorite Apatow comedy because it plays out realistic in most aspects. Sometimes relationships are fucked up (be it between husband and wife or friends who make fun of one another for growing beards) but in the end true friends stay together and work it out. Plus this movie just makes me bust up anytime I see it.


#7 - Garden State (2004) Zach Braff was actually not that well known to me when I went to see Garden State way back in 2004, but his film (he wrote, directed, and starred) really reached me. I guess some of it was that I was also floating through school and life at the time I saw this somewhat like the main character Braff plays. Andrew Largeman (Braff) comes back home because the passing of his mother, he has issues with his controlling father that have haunted him for years. While at home he also finds a girl, Sam (Natalie Portman). The movie really goes into their relationship and how Largeman can finally feel himself with a girl, something that he has never had before. While somewhat dark the movie works well and unfolds as a nice uplifting story. I know it is not a very well known movie but I rank it this high on my list because it really made me think of everything in my life when I went to see it, and I could really relate to the feeling of not knowing what you want to do or how to get to where you want to be. Great acting and some amazing use of songs also make the movie so good.


#8 - The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) Back in 2001 Wes Anderson directed what could be one of his greatest films, The Royal Tenebaums. The movie takes a look at a family that is re-uniting because they are under the impression that their father Royal (an amazing Gene Hackman) is dying. The children were all child prodigies in some field, and now they all have adult issues including loss of love and suicide. The performances are just brillant and the cast doesn't get better, you have: Gene Hackman, Anjelica Houston, Danny Glover, Ben Stiller, Gwyneth Paltrow, Luke Wilson, Owen Wilson, and Bill Murray,...yeah could be one of the best of the decade right there. Of course the movie know when to be funny but it also does go into some serious and dark places,but with good purpose. The film also looks amazing, the scene of Margot (Paltrow) walking off the bus with that perfect music playing always makes me appreciate the little visuals that Anderson adds to his films. If you want to see a movie that is well written, acted, and can make you laugh and cry go and see the this one, it is a can't miss movie.


#9 - The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005) Judd Apatow hit comedy gold by making Steve Carell a virgin. This movie was just a great comedy about a man who for reasons has never had sex, he is not a weirdo or never had a girlfriend he has just never had sex. Andy (Carell) works at a Radio Shack-like place and his co-workers learn about his virginity, hilarity ensues. The cast is amazing and many have now gone onto star in their own movies, it includes: Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen, Catherine Keener, Jayne Lynch, Elizabeth Banks, and small roles from Jonah Hill and Kat Dennings. The story also develops a nice relationship between Andy and his new girlfriend Trish (Keener). The best part is the riffing between the guys at the store, some of it is just classic lines, which make this movie easy to watch over and over again, you will get a new joke just about every time you see it. This movie was a huge hit and I a proud to say it was my #9 movie of the decade.


#10 - V for Vendetta (2005) A movie that speaks to the true rebel inside me, V for Vendetta is a smart and well done movie that leaves you wanting more. V is the main character, a man who's face you never see, the voice acting by Hugo Weaving is extraordinary here. You never need to see his face or mouth move you can just feel the words and emotion coming from the voice. You also have Natalie Portman as Evey, someone who V takes in and opens her eyes to the real world around her. I love this movie because it just always makes me think, is well written, and has some pretty cool action. I love comic book movies but this one goes above and beyond the normal comic book movie, V goes deeper into freedom and the state vs. the people. Just writing this makes me want to see it again!

NFL Final Power Rankings

Here is my final power rankings for this year. I will address the team who made the playoffs and how they can win. For non-playoff teams I will be looking at some strengths and weakness and how they can get better next season.

1. Indianapolis Colts (14-2) - Still the best single team in the NFL even though have suffered back to back losses, of course those were in games when Manning only sparingly played. I think some depth needs to be addressed, if Manning is to get hurt they are screwed on offense.

2. San Diego Chargers (13-3) - Chargers are still rolling and unlike many other AFC teams they are on a huge win streak heading into the playoffs. LT's paltry 3.3 yards per carry does show the running game is a weakness heading into the postseason.

3. Minnesota Vikings (12-4) - Just crushed the once mighty Giants 44-7, and seem to be ready to roll into the playoffs. The team still has lost 3 out of its last 5 games but this beatdown is sure to make them feel nice going into their playoff bye week.

4. New Orleans Saints (13-3) - Saints didn't start Drew Brees, so no shock they suffered another defeat. In fact they rested most of their starters and have lost 3 in a row after starting out 13-0. Not a good feeling heading into the playoffs, the bye week should clear their heads and get them focused.

5. Green Bay Packers (11-5)- Packers laid a beating on the Cardinals (without Kurt Warner) 33-7, the reward? To stay in Arizona and play the same game next week. I pencil this team in as the surprise playoff team, they sure have a nice mix on offense and defense and I can see them go far into the post season.

6. Dallas Cowboys (11-5) - Handled the Eagles at home and are rewarded by winning the division and playing the Eagles at home again next week! They take a defensive scoreless streak of two games going into the playoffs vs. the team they just shut out. Cowboys are sure on a roll, will it last?

7. Philadelphia Eagles (11-5) - Laid a big goose egg in Dallas, and lost 24-0! Not good, considering they were playing for home field advantage and now must play the exact same game next week. Having the ball for more than 19 minutes during the next game might be important Eagles.

8. New England Patriots (10-6) - Patriots are not playing the Pats of old, and losing Wes Welker really is a huge blow to this team. He really does so much to open the passing game, I also heard Tom Brady got knocked around and broke some ribs. I still believe they can upset anyone but they are banged up and not playing at their full potential.

9. Arizona Cardinals (10-6) - Cardinals rested their star QB Kurt Warner for most of the game and suffered some injuries to WR Anquan Boldin and CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. They will need to show that the terrible loss to the Packers was because they were resting and not other reasons. They will be back at home vs those same Packers next week.

10. Cincinnati Bengals (10-6) - Really were just horrible vs the Jets, they only managed 72 total yards and Carson Palmer did play some, going 1-11 for no yards (that's a QB rating of 1.7..WOW). They did rest a lot of their star players but 37-0 shows signs of struggle to a team who seemingly peaked a while ago. They have lost 4 out of their last 5 and the lone win was vs. Kansas City.

11. Pittsburgh Steelers (9-7) - This team did not make the playoffs but sure looked back to their old ways in beating a good Dolphins team on the road. They had too many losses to teams they should have easily beaten. I think they remind me of last years Patriots who missed the playoffs despite being a solid overall team. Off season they will need to address the defense, which was really bad and gave up a ton of points. The offense seems to just get better and added WR Mike Wallace as another weapon to go along with Hines Ward, Rashad Mendenhall, Santonio Holmes, Willie Parker and Heath Miller.

12. Baltimore Ravens (9-7) - Ravens made the playoffs and take on the Patriots in the first round. They have won 3 out their last 4 games and sealed their playoff appearance by winning over Oakland on the road. They seem to be a good running team yet the passing game has been inconsistent of late.

13. New York Jets (9-7) - They also sealed their playoff fate by just killing the Bengals 37-0. They will take on those same Bengals next week, but this time in Cincinnati. I think this team has that amazing running game which will always keep them in games and I can easily see an upset over the Bengals.

14. Atlanta Falcons (9-7) - Too many injuries to star players lead this team to a 9-7 record and missing the playoffs. Michael Turner had only 13 carries in his last 7 games. Matt Ryan also 2 important games against playoff teams (Philly and New Orleans). This team can easily bounce back next season, they have a ton of talent.

15. Tennessee Titans (8-8) - If they just didn't start out 0-6 they could have easily been a playoff team, and a good one at that. Chris Johnson had a monster year with a 2,000 yard season and the team started to click after Vince Young was named started quarterback. After week 7 they only lost two games, to the Colts and Chargers, those happen to be the two best teams is in the AFC.

16. Houston Texans (9-7) - Houston has their first winning season and finished on a four game win streak. This team has a killer offense, and no matter who was being plugged in they managed to score points in droves. A week 13 loss @ Jacksonville was really a killer, if they somehow won that game they could have been 10-6. They are slowly becoming a team who could make the playoffs or more.

17. Denver Broncos (8-8) - Two years now this team had just crumbled, this time they started out 6-0 and and finished at 8-8, and they couldn't beat the Chiefs at home to the end the season. I did not think they would even be close to this good without Cutler but Orton proved to be a good choice and they really have the talent to do something next year.

18. Miami Dolphins (7-9) - Even though they finished at 7-9 the Dolphins were very competitive team through the year. They lost their #1 QB (Chad Pennington) and RB (Ronnie Brown) yet still were close in most games they played. QB Chad Henne got a chance to prove what he could do and gives the team hope for next season.

19. New York Giants (8-8) - Not sure how a team with this talent and coach fell to 8-8 but that is how it happened. They started out 5-0 to end up losing 4 straight games. I can see them bounce back easily in 2010 and get back in the playoff hunt. Seems like they gave up in their last two games being outscored 16-85.

20 tie. Carolina Panthers (8-8) - Panther finished strong winning 4 out their last 5 (the loss was to New England). If they did not start out 0-3 they could have been in the playoff talk. Shaky QB play was also a major concern. QB Jake Delhomme threw 18 Int's yet QB Matt Moore looked good when he played (he had 8tds to only 2 int's)/ The running game was amazing and team produced two 1,100 yard rushers (Williams and Stewart) for the first time in NFL history. They could easily be a force next season.

20.tie. San Francisco 49ers (8-8) - I am glad my team was competitive in most of their games and the defense really turned it on this season. I still have questions for the O-Line and still think with a better overall QB they could be a playoff team. Maybe the O-Line will help make QB Alex Smith look better.

22. Jacksonville Jaguars (7-9) - Finishing out losing 5 out of last 6 kinda messed up those playoff hopes, but there is much to look forward to in the future. They went with a one back system and Maurice Jones-Drew had a monster season. They found a future WR star in Mike Sims-Walker (maybe they should draft all guys with two last names?). This team will always have some talented players, its just a matter of winning those close games.

23. Chicago Bears (7-9) - I really thought Cutler would turn this team into a playoff contender, he had 27 td passes but 26 int's. The running game just wasn't there like it was the year before and it was a tough for Matt Forte to duplicate his break out rookie season. They still need a true #1 Wr, but it seems like they always need a #1 something...before it was a RB, then a QB, now a WR..when will they just win?

24. Cleveland Browns (5-11) - I put them a tad higher because this team really woke up during the second half of the season and won 4 in a row to end the season, I don't think anyone really wanted to play them down the stretch. Looks like they solved their RB situation with Jerome Harrison. He had 561 yards and 5 tds in the last 3 games on the season! They have something to look forward to now, and Mike Holmgren is coming in as the new GM, this team will be competitive somewhat soon.

25. Buffalo Bills (6-10) - The Bills went through a coaching change which usually is a sign that your team is not doing well, and they had an overall pretty bad season. They stuck with QB Trent Edwards and then benched him in favor of Ryan Fitzpatrick. They did seem to find their future RB in Fred Jackson not Marshawn Lynch. Many questions still linger for this team.

26. Oakland Raiders (5-11) - At least the Raiders know who they need to quarterback this team in the future, that would be anyone but JaMarcus Russell! He makes Alex Smith look like John Elway. But the Raiders continue to be the biggest mess in the NFL....not sure how they can fix this team but I would start by giving the starting nod to Bruce Gradowski who played well and try to find your true #1 RB. They still have an awesome punter in Shane Lechler!

27. Seattle Seahawks (5-11) - A lot of media said this team would be in the playoff hunt, um... yah. The Seahawks still have some talent on offense with the aging and injury prone Hasselbeck, Nate Burelson, Housh, and new RB Justin Forsett seems like he could be a deadly one two punch with another RB (thinking MJD and Fred Taylor situation).

28. Kansas City Chiefs (4-12) - Another team who was trying to find out who they were, they seemingly did find out they did not need the cancer who was Larry Johnson, and found someone who can run and run well, Jamaal Charles. Charles reminds me of Chris Johnson style RB. He had 658 yards rushing in his last 4 games. Sure we all knew Matt Cassel was not going to be as good as he was in NE but he still threw 16 tds in 15 games. The D still need a lot of work but there is signs of hope here.

29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-13) - I thought this year was going to be bad for the Bucs, but they do have something to look forward to in 2010, his name is Josh Freeman. But overall this team allowed an average of 25 points a game! So they need to address something on the D. Not sure why they started Qb Josh Johnson over Freeman, he could have used those games to get more prepared for next season.

30. Washington Redskins (4-12) - This team is another mess in which I have no answer for. They always seem to struggle with whoever coaches and they always make big free agent signings, and then you never hear about that guy again. I think the division they play in is really tough and they need to get stronger all around. Is QB Jason Campbell the best they can do? I think he is a serviceable QB but not sure if his the answer. They lack a true #1 WR and the defense was bad allowing 21 a game.

31. Detroit Lions (2-14) - Good news, you doubled your win total from last year! Bad news you only won 2 games. This team was still a mess but showed some offensive signs this year. Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson, and Kevin Smith could prove a lethal combo when healthy and well the D was just utter shit, they allowed an average points per game of 30.9! 30.9!!!!!!!!! WOW. They need to address that in the draft, as well as offensive line. This will be a team that stays rebuilding for a while, but at least they have some pieces in place.

32. St Louis Rams (1-15) - As a life long 49ers fan I almost feel sorry for the mess which is called the St. Louis Rams. They have no QB, WR, or Defense. They do have a good RB which is a start. This team averaged 10.9 points while giving up an average of 27.3, so to just tie most games they need to find a way to get 16 more points a game. With the #1 pick they just need to go with whoever has the most talent, they need talent everywhere. I am not sure how they got so bad so fast. It is amazing that RB Stephen Jackson had 1416 yards for this team.
