Who am I?
I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.
The NFL Playoffs are reaching a crescendo as the Division Playoffs yielded the four finalists for the Super Bowl. While the winners were all the home team favorites, it was a surprise player that carried the Los Angeles Rams to their first NFC Championship Game in 17 years. Veteran running back C.J. Anderson stepped up as a 50/50 back to superstar Todd Gurley and delivered. Having been the Rams featured back in the final two regular season games (which were of little importance to the Rams playoff seeding), Anderson eclipsed 100 yards on both occasions. Now he did it when it mattered most. Anderson notched 123 yards and 2 TD against what had been considered a stingy Cowboys defense. And the yards were hard earned, as no carries were longer than 15 yards meaning Anderson made each and every carry count. The Rams moved on with a 30-22 victory that was less in doubt than the score seemed. And the 27-year old veteran looks poised to provide balance to MVP candidate Gurley. Which will be a lot for the New Orleans Saints to handle. Anderson is the epitome of Sportsman of the Week!
