Three Dots…Blowout in Denver, Arizona football matters, ASU has work to do, Heisman thoughts

Dropped balls and settling for field goals are ways to get beat by Peyton Manning. Losing Patrick Peterson, Calais Campbell and your starting quarterback will give you an L in the column too. I wouldn’t make too much out of Sundays final score other than the Cardinals got worked over 41-20. The Cardinals aren’t as bad as the final score indicated, they just ran out of gas on defense and a third string quarterback was thrown into the fire. Look at this years NFL. The New York Giants were AWFUL early and now they are playing as well as anyone. I see no reason to beat up the hometown football team over Sundays loss…

I wonder if Larry Fitzgerald ever stands on the sidelines and asks himself,”what would my numbers look like if I had Peyton Manning or Tom Brady throwing me the football at some point in my career”…
John Brown finally looked and played like a rookie from Pittsburgh State, Kansas…
It’s one week, one loss, move on…

I have to admit, seeing Arizona ranked ahead of Arizona State in the football polls Sunday was a bit startling. The last time that was the case was 2012.
The Wildcats have USC this Saturday in Tucson. I feel good for guys like UofA AD Greg Byrne and head coach Rich Rodriguez to finally have some early season success. The two have worked hard to sell the program to the community(actually the state). Now with half a season to go, Arizona football isn’t just something to do to pass time until basketball season starts…

I was on a plane somewhere over New Mexico when Arizona State pulled off the miracle at USC. Fortunate that my flight had TV so I watched the game from start to finish. Can’t believe the penalties and special teams mistakes out of a Todd Graham coached team. Plenty of work to do here at the bye week before Stanford…

Should Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday be put on Heisman lists? The kid threw for 734 yards and 6 tds. in ONE GAME. In six games this season he’s averaging 500 yards passing per game. System or no system, he’s in the Pac-12 putting up crazy numbers. I am not saying he should be the leader for the award, I’m just saying he should be considered…
