The Losing Streak Is Over; Titans Beat The Colts

Official Tennessee Titans Fan Reporter

By Karen Christensen // @ksc47  

Tennessee Titans  36-22   Indianapolis Colts

Place Kicker Ryan Succop Andrew Nelles, The Tennessean

October 2011 was the last time that the Titans beat their AFC South division rivals, the Indianapolis Colts.  The Colts had beaten the Titans eleven times in a row; quite a shameful statistic.  It was looking like the winning streak was going to continue on Monday Night Football in Nashville, with the first half of the game being a bit of a snooze fest courtesy of the Titans offense.  Sportscaster Jon Gruden had this to say about the Titans action in the first half:

“play selection and execution is just not good enough”.  

The offense was predictable, the defense was not stopping runs,  Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett had plenty of time to throw the ball, and the Titans’ pass rush was almost non-existent.  The only scoring for the Titans were three field goals by placekicker Ryan Succop, who set an NFL record for the most consecutive field goals under 50 yards (#47 was the record setter, and four more goals added to make the record 51 consecutive field goals).

Fowling – You Gotta Try It

Fowling: The New Sport Bringing Football and Bowling Together

There’s a new sport out there and this is one that brings two very different pastimes together. Fowling is the name of the game, which is taking the world by storm, as both football and bowling fans get their kick with it. Join us as we take a look at what’s making this sport such a success with players and spectators alike.

The Origins of the Sport

This sport was the creation of one man from Michigan, who wanted to combine his love for both sports into one game. You need a whole lot of space to play this game, so it’s best played in a warehouse or bowling alley. It’s something of a variation that has competitors launching American footballs down a lane of the alley.

If you’re looking for something similar then you can also play hybrid sports with bingo too for even more of the sports based experience. Sports seem to go well with lots of other hobbies, so it makes sense that they appear all over the place.

Quick 5 with Shannon Sanchez, Football 101

Come chat Football 101 with me // @ShannonSanchez3

NF: Where did you learn about football – When? and from Who?

SS: I was around 9 when I started getting very interested in football.  My mother taught me the basics and my father taught me the strategies of the game.  It became the thing that bonded us together, Sunday football was the father/daughter time.  And are some of my dearest memories of my father.

NF: Priorities of Life – What are your top 3?

SS: 1)  Jesus  2)  My family  3) This one is very hard, many things vie for third place – friends, the causes we support ( fighting human trafficking is a very passionate cause we put time and money into), making memories…

NF: If you had any job in the world – what would it be, and why?

SS: I can’t choose just one, sorry…

I would love to teach the Bible to high school and college students

I would love to work for non-profits who fight human trafficking (IJM or A21)

I would love to write a book

I would love to be a stand-up comic

Football Movie Marathon Time

By Marcela Vargas // @ethne88

We’re a month away from the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game and the return of football-infused days and nights. With a few weekends left until we can put our jerseys back on to cheer for our teams, I have devised a mini-marathon of football related movies to enjoy with your fellow NFL fans.

(Also, this marks my first cinematic contribution to NFLFemale. I’ll be reviewing movies about football once a week for as long as I can find them.)

Remember the Titans (2000)

A family classic! Set in 1960’s Virginia, this movie stars Denzel Washington as Herman Boone, an African American football coach set with the task of leading a recently integrated high school team in small town Alexandria. The newly-formed Titans face a tough season, but also the need to overcome fear, ignorance, and hatred in order to become a real football team. It’s a feel-good movie –produced by Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer– and includes performances by Will Patton, Hayden Panettiere, and a young Ryan Gosling.

Quick 5 With Christy Chauvin, Saints OR

Official New Orleans Saints Reporter

Come chat Saints with me // @WhoDatWarriors

NF: Where did you learn about football – When? and from Who?

CC: I learned football on my Pop’s knee. He was a semi-pro player, and our family went to football games all the time.  It is woven into the very fibre of my being. We went to high school games on Friday, Tiger Stadium on Saturday and before the New Orleans Saints came into existence, we rooted for the Detroit Lions.  

My Dad took us to the first Saints game in Tulane Stadium, and he has been a Saints ticket holder since day one.  He would put two TVs side by side to watch two games at once and have the radio on as well.  He is a wild man when it comes to football.  On Thanksgiving he and my younger brother come over and we watch football all day together.
