2017 ALL-AMERICAN ALL-BOWL
FOOTBALL TEAM

Image result for Calvin Ridley PhotosSuper Wide Receiver Calvin Ridley (#3) is the Top Wide Receivers in the Country and in The Draft. On Sunday, I said He Could Very Well be The Key Player in the National Championship Game and Be a Member of The First Team Offensive Bowl Team and he Caught The Tying Touchdown Pass !

By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Scouting Notes I: I have been Selecting College Football Weekly MVP Awards for The Last Fourteen Weeks of the Season, but The Player had to be on The Winning Team to Qualify for The Weekly MVP Award.

Scouting Notes II: During The Season, My Guidelines for Being a Weekly MVP were Set as Follows: Quarterbacks: 450-Yards of Total Offense – All-Purpose Backs: 200-Yards of Total Offense – Running Backs: 175-Yards of Offense – Wide Receivers: 175-Yards of Offense – Tight End: 100Yards of Offense – Defensive Line: 2 Sacks or 2 Turnovers –Linebacker:  15 Tackles or 2 Turnovers – Defensive Back: 2 Interceptions or 2 Turnovers. Must be on Winning Team!

Scouting Notes III: For the All-American Bowl Team, I have Slightly Varied The Standards for Each Position. OFFENSE Quarterbacks: Must have 400-Yards or Bowl MVP; All-Purpose Backs: Must have 200-Yards or Bowl MVP; Wide Receivers: Must have 175-Yards or Bowl MVP; Running Backs: Must have 150-Yards or Bowl MVP. DEFENSE – Linemen and Linebackers: Must have Two Sacks or Two Turnovers or Defensive MVP; and Defensive Backs: Must have Two Interceptions or Two Turnovers or Defensive MVPMust be on Winning Team!

Scouting Notes IV: If the Player fell short of the Standard for his Position, but was Outstanding in the Bowl Game and was First or Second Team All-American; in the MVP Column, there will be a First Team All-America (AA1) or Second Team All-American (AA2).

Georgia dominated the first half, and Alabama Starting Quarterback Jalen Hurts could not get anything going, throwing  for 21-Yards and rushing for 47-Yards. So Coach Lou Saban turned to True Freshman Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (#13) and he ultimately tied the game with an Incredible Touchdown Pass to WR Calvin Ridley on 4th-and-4 with only 3:49 Remaining in the Game and then Tagovailoa hit another True Freshman WR DeVonta Smith for The Winning 41-Yard Touchdown.

Image result for Da'Ron payne PhotosDa’Ron Payne (#94) is the Most Incredible Defensive Lineman I have ever seen play. Payne is Incredible, because with only Three Career Sacks,  for The Crimson Tide, he is not going to “Put-Up” Huge Stats, but he is still The Most Dominating Defensive Player on the Field in Every Game. In the Clemson Game, Payne was Unbelievably Dominating On The Line of Scrimmage in Causing Havoc and then he was Even Better in The Championship Game Against Georgia on Every Single Play.

In 1967, The Alabama Sugar Bowl MVP, NFL Hall of Fame, and Four-Time All-Pro Quarterback (#12) Kenny “The Snake” Stabler

“Every Thing Happens For A Reason!”

AMAZING IRONIC THING I: How Ironic is it that The Late Kenny Stabler, a Left-Handed Quarterback for Alabama was Voted as The 1967 MVP of The Sugar Bowl and then Fifty Years Later, another Left-Handed Quarterback named Tua Tagovaloa, was Voted as The MVP of the 2018 National Championship Game, just after The Tide had Won The 2017 Sugar Bowl.

AMAZING IRONIC THING II: Roger Staubach and The Super Scout were both in The Navy and Played for Naval Air Station Football Teams. Staubach was The Team MVP when he played for The Pensacola Naval Air Station Football Goshawks and in 1967, they were The Continental United States Military Football Champions, beating both The Quantico Marines and Youngstown for The Football District Championship. The Super Scout was Stationed at The Guam Naval Hospital, but played for The Naval Air Station Flyers and they Won The Guam Rice Bowl as the Guam Military Football Champion. The NAS Flyers also Won The Tokyo, Japan Bowl as The Outer Continental United States Military Championship.

AMAZING IRONIC THING III: Later, both Staubach and The Super Scout worked for Head Coach Tom Landry of The Dallas Cowboys, who was in The United States Army Air Corps; while their Wives, Marianne Staubach of 53 Years and Ginger Emfinger of 46 Years were both Dallas Cowboys Social Directors for The Dallas Cowboy Football Players.

AMAZING IRONIC THING IV: My Full-Time job with The Dallas Cowboys was To Evaluate, Rate, and Rank College Football Players for The NFL Draft. My Boss, Gil Brandt, also asked me to Evaluate, Rate, and Rank all of The Top Texas HS Football Players for The 1976 Football Recruiting Season for Coaches. Then, when Coach Tom Landry asked me to Evaluate, Rate, Rank, and Color-Code Every Single NFL Player, I was Probably the First and Last Football Talent Scout on the Planet who Evaluated High School, College, and NFL in the same Football Season. After Finishing this Dallas Cowboys Scouting Project, Coach Landry Turned-To Defensive Coordinator Ernie Stautner and said: “Coach Stautner, I Think we have us a Real Super Scout!”

The New Alabama Super-Star Quarterback is Tua Tagovailoa and he just became The New Alabama Hero and Following in the Footsteps of his Great Mentor, Marcus Mariota, as he will become the Next Great Hawaiian Quarterback.

Tagovailoa (6-1, 219, 4.48) has spent most of his life following in the path of his Great Mentor, Tennessee Titans Super Quarterback Marcus Mariota and in The National Championship Game, Tagovailoa accomplished one Huge Accomplishment that that Mariota never did and that was To Lead his Team to a National Championship and Mariota could not be happier.

When Nick Saban decided to bench Starting Quarterback Jalen Hurts. Tagovailoa led the Crimson Tide from down 13-0 to force overtime. In OT, Tagovailoa bounced back from a sack that lost 16-Yards on first down to orchestrate an Unbelievable Game-Winning 41-Yard Touchdown one play later and Deliver a 26-23 National Championship Victory for The Tide.

Hercules Mata’afa (6-2, 252, 4.62) is a Washington State Junior Defensive Tackle and Defensive End who is a Nightmare for all Opposing Offensive Lineman and Offensive Coordinators. Mata’afa was a Three Star Recruit coming out of Lahainaluna High School in Lahaina, Hawaii where he played Outside Linebacker and he was a two time State Finalist Wrestler.

Mata’afa was Red-Shirted as a Freshman, and then in his first season, as a Red-Shirt FreshmanMata’afa played in 13 games and had 32 Total Tackles and 11 of those Tackles were for a Loss; plus he had 7 Quarterback Sacks, one Forced Fumble, and a fumble recovery.

Mata’afa is Considered to be one of the Very Best Football Players in the Pac-12 and he will be a Very High Pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. In 2017, as a Junior, Mata’afa led the PAC-12 with 21.5 Tackles for a Loss, had 9.5 Quarterback Sacks in 2017; however, he was not named as The PAC-12 Defensive Lineman of the Year; and that Award went to Fellow Polynesian, Washington Defensive Tackle, Vita VeaThe Associated Press, however, Awarded its PAC-12 Defensive Player of the Year Award to Mata’afa.

CO-DEFENSIVE POLYNESIAN MVP
Noseguard Vita “The Beast” Vea

Vita Vea (6-5, 344, 5.2) arrived on The Washington Husky Campus as an “Under-The-Radar” Defensive Lineman in 2013, from California. This Monster Nose Guard was ranked as the 40th best player nationally at his position and the 65th best overall player in the State of California. He Enrolled in 2014, but Red-Shirted and so he was Out of Football for Two Years.

Vea hit the weight room, got in shape, learned the playbook and scheme, and slowly developed into a Very Key Defensive Player for one of the Elite Defenses in College Football. Vea played in every game during his Redshirt-Freshman Season, in 2015, for The Huskies and Recorded 17 tackles, 13 solo Tackles, and Three Tackles for a Loss.

Then in 2016, The Huge Role of Vea became very evident with Head Coach Chris Peterson and Defensive Coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski. Vea played in all 14 games for the Huskies, starting five of them as the Huskies won the Pac-12 and appeared in the College Football Playoffs in the 2016-17 season. In this Sophomore Season, Vea Recorded 39 Tackles, 6.5 Tackles for a Loss, and 4 Quarterback Sacks, just like in 2015.

Vea has now fully blossomed into a Real Bonafide First-Round Draft Prospect for The 2018 NFL Draft. Vea again put up big numbers from his Nose Tackle Position in The Washington 3-4 Defense as he Recorded 43 total tackles, career-high 30 solo tackles, had 5.5 Tackles for a Loss, four passes defended, and 3.5 sacks in 12 games for the Huskies.

In 2017, as a Junior, Vea was Voted to The PAC-12 All-Conference First Team; PAC-12 Defensive Lineman of the Year; and PAC-12 Player of the Year. He was also Named to The First Team All-American Team by USA Today, Sports Illustrated, and SB Nation.

FIRST TEAM ALL-AMERICAN  OFFENSE

Image result for baker mayfield new photos2017 Heisman Trophy Winner Baker Mayfield (#6) is one of The Greatest Quarterbacks that I have seen play since Dree Brees. I also really liked QB Mason Rudolph and both will be 2018 #1 Draft Choices in The 2018 NFL Draft.

Scouting Notes I: At least Four of My First or Second Team All-American Players Decided not to Play in Their Bowl Game with their Team, in Preparation for the 2018 NFL Draft, including DE Bradley Chubb of NC State; SS Derwin James of FSU; QB Josh Rosen of UCLA; and CB Denzel Ward of Ohio State; plus LB Malik Jefferson was Injured.

Scouting Notes II: The Last Column is My NFL Draft Choice Selection in the 2018 or 2019 Draft.

When Evaluating Bowl Game Players, I also went back into the 2017 Football Season to Evaluate their Season to see if they had Qualified for My Weekly MVP Awards. Most all of the NFL Scouts have Rated and Ranked QB Josh Rosen, QB Josh Allen, and Sam Darnold as three of the Best Quarterbacks in the 2018 NFL Draft, but Allen and Darnold did not Receive a Single Weekly MVP Award and Rosen only Received One Weekly Award against Texas A&M in the Opener when he Passed for 491-Yards.

Heisman Trophy Winner Baker Mayfield Received Six MVP Awards and Mason Rudolph and Lamar Jackson had Five MVP Awards; while Drew Lock, Luke Falk, Riley Ferguson, McKenzie Milton, John Wolford, and Quinton Flowers Received Four MVP Awards apiece.  Mike White, Connor Manning, Tyler Huntley, and Daniel Jones Received Two Weekly MVP Awards; while Josh Rosen, Brian Lewerke, Jason Driskel, Trace McSorley, and Nic Shimonek Received One MVP Award apiece.

The Unbelievable Josh Allen Story will Startle you. One Huge “Hint” about Josh Allen is the Fact that his Wyoming Football Team was so Fantastic on Defense, Allen Never Really had to throw for 300 or 400-Yards to Win a Football Game.

There were Three Unbelievable Defensive Super-Stars for Wyoming in the Potato Bowl and Allen did not have to even Pass for a 200-Yards to Win the Game, but he is one of the Best Quarterbacks that I have ever seen and he will be Either the #1 or #2 Quarterback Selected in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Some of the other Bowl Game Players who Qualified for a Weekly MVP Award included RB Devin Singletary, RB Zach Moss, WR Michael Gallup, OC Brian Allen, OC Mason Cole, OC Lamont Gaillard, OC Ryan Anderson, OC Austin Davis, OT Martinas Rankin, and OT Will Richardson.

2017 ALL-AMERICAN ALL-BOWL OFFENSIVE FOOTBALL TEAM By Super Scout Max Emfinger

2017 ALL-AMERICAN ALL-BOWL
OFFENSIVE FOOTBALL TEAM

By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Super All-American Wide Receiver Calvin Ridley (#3) of Alabama is one of the Top Wide Receivers in the Country and he Could Very Well be The Key Player in the National Championship Bowl Game and Be a Member of The First Team Offensive Bowl Team on Tuesday!

SPECIAL NOTE: Much of Game for Alabama was an exercise in overcoming adversity. Georgia dominated the first half, and Starting Quarterback Jalen Hurts could not get anything going, finishing 3-of-8 for 21-Yards while rushing for 47-Yards. So Coach Lou Saban turned to True Freshman Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who ultimately tied the game with an Incredible Touchdown Pass to Calvin Ridley on 4th-and-4 with just 3:49 Remaining in the Game.

Scouting Notes I: I have been Selecting College Football Weekly MVP Awards for The Last Fourteen Weeks, but The Player had to be on The Winning Team to Qualify for The Weekly MVP Award.

Scouting Notes II: During The Season, My Guidelines for Being a Weekly MVP were Set as Follows: Quarterbacks: 450-Yards of Total Offense – All-Purpose Backs: 200-Yards of Total Offense – Running Backs: 175-Yards of Offense – Wide Receivers: 175-Yards of Offense – Tight End: 100Yards of Offense – Defensive Line: 2 Sacks or 2 Turnovers –Linebacker:  15 Tackles or 2 Turnovers – Defensive Back: 2 Interceptions or 2 Turnovers. Must be on Winning Team!

Scouting Notes III: For the All-American Bowl Team, I have Slightly Varied The Standards for Each Position to Qualify for The All-American All-Bowl Football Team. OFFENSE Quarterbacks: Must have 400-Yards or Bowl MVP; All-Purpose Backs: Must have 200-Yards or Bowl MVP; Wide Receivers: Must have 175-Yards or Bowl MVP; Running Backs: Must have 150-Yards or Bowl MVP. DEFENSE – Linemen and Linebackers: Must have Two Sacks or Two Turnovers or Defensive MVP; and Defensive Backs: Must have Two Interceptions or Two Turnovers or Defensive MVPMust be on Winning Team!

Scouting Notes IV: If the Player fell short of the Standard for his Position, but was Outstanding in the Bowl Game and was First or Second Team All-American; in the MVP Column, there will be a First Team All-America (AA1) or Second Team All-American (AA2).

Ohio State Completely Dominated the Game with a 24-7 Victory as both of their All-American Defensive Ends with a Multitude of Sacks as Sam Hubbard (#6) Recorded 2 1/2 Sacks; while Nick Bose Recorded 2 Sacks. On Offense, The Buckeyes Three All-American Offensive Lineman of OC Billy Price, OG Michael Jordan, and OT Jamarco Jones, also Completely Dominated the Southern Cal Defense.

There is something Very Special about The TCU Horned Frogs and Their Big Comeback Victories in The Alamo Bowl Game. Never count out The Frogs.

In 2015, The Frogs Stormed back from being down 31-0 to win The Alamo Bowl Game. They did it again Thursday night, rallying from 21-3 deficient to beat The #15 Stanford Cardinals by a 39-37 Comeback Victory behind Super-Star Quarterback, Kenny Hill, who had another Incredible Game.

Hill (#7) Completed 27 of 40 Passes for 314-Yards and Two Touchdowns, Rushed 9 Times for 60-Yards and another Touchdown; plus he Caught One Pass for 27-Yards and another Incredible Touchdown, giving him 401-Yards of Total Offensive Yards and Four Touchdowns. 

Hill landed the Biggest Plays of the Game, but he also had help from Two other Super-Stars in Senior Desmond White and True Freshman Jalen Reagor. Hill Scored The First Horned Frog Touchdown on a 6-Yard Scramble, at the End of the Second Quarter, giving Stanford a 21-10 Lead at Halftime.

Then, his Incredible 27-Yard “Throw-Back” Touchdown Pass, down the Left Sideline, from Wide Receiver Desmon White to make it 27-16 in the Third Quarter, but Hill “Returned The Favor” as he Hit White on an 11-Yard Touchdown to make it 28-23. Stanford then kicked a Field Goal to to Increase their lead to 31-23.

Hill “Put An Unbelievable Charge” into The TCU Fans in the Fourth Quarter with the “Play of The Game” as he Found True Freshman Jalen Reagor, down the Right Sideline with an Incredible 93-Yard Touchdown Pass to Bring The Stanford Lead to 31-29 and Bring The Predominantly Horned Frog Fans in The Alamodome to Attention.

After this Incredible Play, Desmond White Struck-Again as he Returned a Punt 76-Yards for a Touchdown to give The Frogs their First Lead at 36-31, but Stanford Scored again to give the another Go-Ahead Lead at 37-36.

Then Hill led The Frogs down the Field and gave Cole Bunce a Chance to Kick the Winning 33-Yard Field Goal with just over 3 minutes left after Stanford had retaken the lead and With an Apparent Victory.

It was the second time this season that Hill had a Rushing Touchdown, Passing Touchdown, and Receiving Touchdown, in the Same Game, providing a Memorable Finale to his Great College Career. Hill began his career at Texas A&M, where he succeeded Heisman Trophy Winner Johnny Manziel in 2014, but Transferred to TCU after a Tough First Season with The Aggies.

Although, he was from the Area, Iowa All-Purpose Back and Super-Star Akrum Wadley (#25) had never been to Yankee Stadium, even though he grew up about 20-Miles across the river in New Jersey, but on his first visit, he seemed to bring out the whole town of Newark to cheer him and The HawkeyesWadley gave away 40 or more Game Tickets, and he certainly did not disappoint any of his his hometown fans who were Freezing inside Yankee Stadium to Watch him play.

In this Frigid Pinstripe Bowl Game against Boston College, Wadley Rushed for 88-Yards and a Touchdown; Caught 2 Passes for 24-Yards; and Returned 5 Kickoffs for 171-Yards, giving him an Incredible 283-Yards of Total Offense in the 27-20 Victory. This Bowl Game Sensation was Awarded with The MVP Trophy and also helped Snap a Five-Game Bowl Losing Streak.

Boise State Committed two turnovers that were returned for Touchdowns in the final minute of the First Half, turning a 24-0 Rout in the making into a competitive 24-14 contest and allowing Oregon back into the game, but without any Special Speech from their Head Coach, the Broncos regrouped and responded.

Super Wide Receiver Cedric Wilson (#1) Caught 10 Passes for 221-Yards and a Touchdown; Freshman Free Safety Kekula Kaniho Returned an Interception 53-Yards for a Touchdown to go with his 3 Solo Tackles and a Sack; and All-American Linebacker Leighton Vander Esch led The Broncos Defense with 12 Tackles, including 10 Solo Tackles, 3 Tackles for a Loss, and 1 1/2 Sacks as #25 Boise State beat Oregon 38-28 in the Las Vegas Bowl.

“New slate. It’s a whole different half. As far as we were concerned, it was 0-0,” said Broncos Super Linebacker Vander Esch.

The Georgia Bulldogs are the Very First Non-Alabama SEC Team to make the College Football Playoff.

4. Alabama (11-1) – There was Absolutely No Way the Playoff Selection Committee could “Leave-Out” The One-Loss Alabama Crimson Tide. Before they loss at Auburn, The Crimson Tide had been Ranked #1 or #2 in Every Single 2017 Playoff Ranking. The Auburn Tigers were The Hottest Team in the Country in November, taking down two #1 Teams at home, so a 26-14 loss to Auburn certainly isn’t the worst loss among the teams in the playoff field.

After Ohio State beat Wisconsin in The Big-10 Conference Championship Game, the Biggest Question was whether the Committee would Value Better Wins and a Conference Championship for Ohio State or Alabama with fewer losses and perhaps a more Convincing Eyeball Test as being a Better Team than Ohio State with Two Losses.

Despite not playing in the SEC Championship and a relative lack of perceived quality wins, Alabama beat Florida State when The Seminoles were ranked #3 in the AP Top 25 Poll and In addition, had wins over LSU and Mississippi State.

It took an 11th Hour Decision by the Selection Committee to keep The Alabama Playoff Streak Alive, as The Crimson Tide made the Playoffs for the Fourth Consecutive Year. This is their lowest final ranking in the playoff era, after entering the playoff ranked No. 1 in 2014 and 2016, and No. 2 in 2015.

1. Clemson (12-1) – For the Third Consecutive Year, Clemson has made the College Football Playoff. It is the Second Time The Tigers have been the #1 Overall Seed, as they also claimed the top spot in 2015. A Decisive 38-3 ACC Championship Victory over Miami “Sealed the Deal” for Clemson, which only has one Loss on its Record, a 27-24 Road Loss to Syracuse in a Game in which Clemson Quarterback Kelly Bryant (#2 on the Left) was Injured.

Bryant has been Outstanding in the six games since the Syracuse loss, completing 125-of-186 passes (67 percent) for 1,303 yards, nine touchdowns and just two interceptions. Clemson entered selection day with eight wins over teams with a .500 or better record, including victories over Auburn and Miami.

2. Oklahoma (12-1) – The Sooners have not been ranked worse than #5 since the selection committee unveiled their initial 2017 Rankings in Week 10 and with Heisman Trophy Winner, Baker Mayfield, they have Some Very Impressive Wins, including Two Wins over TCU and One in Fort Worth; Ohio State in Columbus; Oklahoma State; and West Virginia.

Baker Mayfield is The Hottest Quarterback in the Country, but The Georgia Pass Defense will be The Best Pass Defense that he has faced all year. The Bulldogs are Ranked Second in The Country Against the Pass, allowing 158.3-Yards Per Game, with only Four Teams able to Complete better than a 60-Per Cent Pass Completion.

3. Georgia (12-1) The Georgia Bulldogs made the jump from #6 to #2 after a Great  Victory over Auburn in the SEC Championship Game. They avenged their only loss of the season, which was a 40-17 Loss  at Auburn. Georgia put itself in position to make The Playoffs after a Huge Victory on the road over Notre Dame in Week #2 and with the exception of their loss to The Auburn Tigers, The Georgia Bulldogs Rolled-Through The SEC Conference as they Won by an Average of 29 Points in their Seven Regular Season SEC Victories.

Inside Linebacker Roquan Smith (6-1, 225, 4.54) was The Anchor of The Georgia Defense and was Selected as The SEC Defensive Player of the Year by the Associated Press and also The Coaches. Smith has sometime been Labeled as being “Undersized” but tell that to Ball-Carriers who have met him in a Game this Season. Smith has been a “Wrecking-Ball” at the second level for The Bulldogs, leading the team with 45 tackles.

Smith has showed off a well-rounded skill set, making plays all over the field with an impressive combination of Athleticism and Physicality!

The Georgia Bulldogs are the Very First Non-Alabama SEC Team to make the College Football Playoff.

4. Alabama (11-1) – There was Absolutely No Way the Playoff Selection Committee could “Leave-Out” The One-Loss Alabama Crimson Tide. Before they loss at Auburn, The Crimson Tide had been Ranked #1 or #2 in Every Single 2017 Playoff Ranking. The Auburn Tigers were The Hottest Team in the Country in November, taking down two #1 Teams at home, so a 26-14 loss to Auburn certainly isn’t the worst loss among the teams in the playoff field.

After Ohio State beat Wisconsin in The Big-10 Conference Championship Game, the Biggest Question was whether the Committee would Value Better Wins and a Conference Championship for Ohio State or Alabama with fewer losses and perhaps a more Convincing Eyeball Test as being a Better Team than Ohio State with Two Losses.

Despite not playing in the SEC Championship and a relative lack of perceived quality wins, Alabama beat Florida State when The Seminoles were ranked #3 in the AP Top 25 Poll and In addition, had wins over LSU and Mississippi State.

It took an 11th Hour Decision by the Selection Committee to keep The Alabama Playoff Streak Alive, as The Crimson Tide made the Playoffs for the Fourth Consecutive Year. This is their lowest final ranking in the playoff era, after entering the playoff ranked No. 1 in 2014 and 2016, and No. 2 in 2015.

The Crimson Tide has the Best Defensive Back in The Country with Junior Free Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick. The Potential #1 Draft Choice Won The Jim Thorpe Award as the #1 Defensive Back in the Country; plus he has also Won The Chuck Bednarik Award as The #1 Defensive Player in The Country.

THERE SEEMS TO BE A LOT OF BOWL GAMES THIS YEAR!

All of the College Regular Season Football Games have been Completed and now it is time for the “All-Important” Bowl Games and of course, some of these Bowl Games will Decide The College Football National Championship.

Two of These January 1 Bowl Game Champions will Decide what Teams will play in The National Championship Game on January 8. These College Football Bowl Games are very important, but there seems to be a lot of College Bowl Games this season. I think there are 41 Bowl Games!

For most of us, who have been in the Football Business for most of their entire Lifetime, I probably can not get enough Football Bowl Games and for the Thousands of Players that get to Play in these Bowl Games, it is Quiet an Honor for them to get to Play in these Bowl Games and they will Remember these Moments for the Rest of their Lifetime.

1963 Bluebonnet Bowl Game
Rice Stadium, Houston, Texas

In my Baylor Football Career, I was a Red-Shirt Sophomore in 1963 when The Baylor Bears Played and Beat The LSU Tigers in a 14-7 Victory in The Fifth Annual 1963 Bluebonnet Bowl Game, and although I did not get to play in The 1963 Bluebonnet Bowl Game, it still was Very Exciting for me to be on the Sideline for that Bluebonnet Bowl Game!

Image result for 1963 bluebonnet bowl

Now! How Ironic was it that the Jersey #22 on the 1963 Bluebonnet Bowl Game Ticket was the same Baylor Jersey #22 that I wore in the 1964 and 1965 Games for The Baylor Bears.

Although it was 55 -Years ago, and I was a Red-Shirt Sophomore, this Bluebonnet Bowl Game Brings-Back A Lot of  Memories to me like it only happened last week. After a Stellar 1962 Baylor Freshman Football Season and being Selected to The Freshman All-SWC Team and then having an Outstanding 1963 Spring Training with Two Catches from All-American Quarterback Don Trull and Two Interceptions, including a one-handed catch, on Defense in the Spring Game, I was really looking forward to being a Sophomore Super-Star, but it did not happen.

On the First Day of 1963 Fall Football Practice, in the Morning of Two-a-Day Practice, I Weighed-In at 179-Pounds, thinking that this was a “Good-Weight” for me. The Weather was Really Hot. I think it was 95-Degrees, but it was also very Humid.

Image result for Lawrence Elkins Photos

I was listed as the #2 Flanker Back, behind my Good Friend Lawrence Elkins (#26) with Coach John Bridgers. In the Baylor Offense, the Flanker Back and Split End were both always running a Pass Pattern on Every Single Play, whether it was a Pass Play or Running Play and as I was wanting to “Make a Great Impression” with The Baylor Coaches, I was running every play at “Full-Speed” and I was “Backing-Up” the Defensive Back, on every play, trying to Cover me.

I also made some Great Catches on some of the Passing Plays. In fact, on Passing Plays, both Outside Receivers and Tight End were all being thrown passes. I actually made a One-Handed Catch on one of the Passing Plays.

After about an Hour of Running Pass Patterns at Full-Speed on every play, I was getting a little tired. Then, about Twenty Minutes later, I “Passed-Out” and the Trainers Carried me off of the Field on a Stretcher. After I got to the Dressing Room, I weighed and I weighed 163-Pounds and I realized that I had lost 16-Pounds.

After drinking a lot of water and eating a big lunch, I was back out for the Afternoon Football Practice. I thought that I was going to be fine, but after another Hour and a Half, I “Passed-Out” again, but this time, I was not OK, because I had just had a Mild-To-Major Heat Stroke. This time, I Weighed-In at 157-Pounds and I knew that I had Lost 22-Pounds, from the Morning Practice. I guess that the “Real Thing and Miracle” was that I was Still on The Planet, because in an Unbelievable Hot Fall, several other Football Players, in the Waco Area, had Heat Strokes and were Forced to Leave The Planet.

After Spending Three Days in the Hospital and Two More Weeks trying to Recover, my 1963 Baylor Football Career was over. The Baylor Football Coaches decided to Red-Shirt me and Save my Full-Eligibility, because they did not know how long it was going to Take-Me to Fully-Recover all of my Strength and Athletic Abilities.

SIDEBAR I: “Everything Happens for a Reason and We are all Here on This Planet for a “Reason” and “Every Action has a Consequence!”  The “Universe” had Different Plans for me on this First Day of Baylor Football Practice in 1963.  If I would not have had a Heat Stroke, I would have Played Football in 1963 and I would have likely Graduated in Four Years, in 1966, but by having a Heat Stroke, It Changed my Graduation Schedule to Graduate in 1967.  If not, I would have gone into the Navy in the Summer of 1966.

SIDEBAR II: The “Universe” wanted me to Graduate from Baylor in the Spring of 1967, not in 1966, because The “Universe” wanted me to be in The 1966-67 World Famous Baylor A Cappella Choir that Gave a National Concert in Carnegie Hall in New York City, in the Spring of 1967.  I was not only in The Choir, I was Voted Vice President of The Choir in the Spring of 1967.

SIDEBAR III: Every Time that I gave My Christian Testimony, on The Baylor A Cappella Choir Tour, I would Remember my 1963 Heat Stroke.

After Three months of Recuperation

After three months of Recuperation, I was at Full-Speed Again and Ready to “Impersonate” The Super LSU Kick-Return Man, Joe LaBruzzo in Pre-Bowl Game Practices. And there was Another Unbelievable Ironic Story to be Told.

The LSU Tigers had their Tremendous Kick Return Specialist, Joe LaBruzzo, and he Wore Jersey #22 and that was The Same #22 that I was Assigned To-Wear before my Heat Stroke.

Since I was on The Baylor Scout Team and was Impersonating Joe LaBruzzoThe LSU Starting Running Back, and Return Specialist, I was Given his Jersey #22, on Monday Practice, before the Game, to Impersonate him at Running Back and also as their Great Kick-Return Man.

The Baylor Coaches wanted to be Completely-Sure that LaBruzzo did not Return a Punt or Kickoff Against them in The Bluebonnet Bowl Game, but as Fate would have it, The Baylor Defensive Coaches and Especially Head Coach John Bridgers got Pretty Upset when I Returned a Kickoff for a Touchdown in a “Live Practice-Scrimmage” on Wednesday.

Baylor Climaxed a Fabulous Football Season in 1963 with a 14-7 Victory over The LSU Tigers in the Fifth Annual 1963 Bluebonnet Bowl Game as 1963 Consensus All-American Quarterback Don Trull Completed 26 of 37 Passes for 255-Yards and was Selected as The MVP of The Bluebonnet Bowl Game. The Tigers Double-and-Triple Teamed All-American Elkins and Super Split End and another Good Friend, James Ingram Caught an Incredible 11 Passes for 163-Yards and “The Winning Touchdown” in the Last Minutes of the Fourth Quarter and was Voted as the Outstanding Lineman Award.

Don Trull, #Baylor's original Heisman finalist (1963) and newly elected College Football Hall of Famer. // #Baylor University Class of 1964

Also, The Baylor Defense Played Exceptionally Well as they Limited The LSU Tigers to only Four First Downs, only 95-Yards Rushing, and only 13-Yards Passing and they, obviously, Held LaBruzzo to Limited Yardage and Absolutely no Kick Returns.

It was Unbelievably Incredible how many of my Baylor Teammates came-up to me after the Game, in Rice Stadium, Laughing and Telling-Me that I had Actually gained more yardage on my Wednesday Kick Returns than LaBruzzo had Gained During the Bluebonnet Bowl Game.

1967 Rice Bowl Championship Games
Guam Agana Barlow Field
Mariana Islands

One of the Most Incredible “Things” happened in 1967, shortly after I Graduated from Baylor University. I had been in the Navy Reserve ever since I had Graduated from Brownwood High School in 1962.

In 1961, we were at War with Vietnam and all 18-Year-Old Boys were subject to the Draft in the Army. My Dad had taken me to join the Navy Reserve before my Junior Year in 1961 and I had Signed a Contract to Enter into the United States Navy after I Graduated from College. My Six-Year Navy Reserve Contract would begin in the U.S. Navy with Two Years of Active Duty after Graduating from College.

As a member of the Navy Reserve. I was going to Enter a Two-Year Active Duty in the United States Navy and then Spend Four-Years in the Navy Reserve. So I Entered the Navy, shortly after graduating, I immediately entered a Six Week Navy Boot-Camp in San Diego, California and then I graduated from U.S. Navy Personnelman Class “A” School at Naval Station in San Diego, California on September 22, 1967.

After Graduating from Personnelman School, I was already playing on a Really Good Softball Team at The San Diego Naval Station and they all wanted me to “Put-In” to stay in San Diego, and Continue Playing on the The Undefeated Softball Team, but As a Patriot, I “Put-In” for Active Duty in Vietnamthinking that although I would be in Danger, I would not be in “Real-Big Danger” and I would be able to get “Hazardous Duty Pay”  along with my Regular Pay.

As it turned-out, there were not any Openings in Vietnam, but they decided to give me an Active Duty Assignment as close to Vietnam as possible and The Navy Gave me an Active Duty Assignment in Guam at Agana, Guam Naval Hospital in the Mariana Islands.

So when I got to Guam Navy Hospital, (In The Photo), I immediately asked if the Navy Hospital had a Football Team and they immediately told me that they did not have a Football Team, but that the Naval Air Station Flyers had a Really Good Football Team and that there was a Player at the Naval Hospital that was playing on that Naval Air Station Flyers Football Team.

After I got situated at my desk, in my Job in the Personnel Office, I got a hold of Linebacker Pete Murdock and asked him if I could go to Football Practice with him. And, of course, he said yes and he was just as excited as I was.

When I got to the First Football Practice, I found out that they had a lot of Really Great Looking Football Players and they already had a 4-0 Record. I also found-out real quick that they really still needed some help with their Passing Game and after The Coaches found-out that I had played in The Baylor Pro-Offense and Raymond Berry was my Pass-Receiving Mentor, I was “Shocked” when they made me their Player/Coach in the Passing Game.

I also found out that, although they had a Great 4-0 Record, their Toughest Games and Teams were getting ready to Come-Up and they Needed a lot of help in their Passing Game. I was still in Pretty Good Shape and so I Immediately started “Working-On-Their-Passing-Game” at the Afternoon Practice.

The Naval Air Station Quarterback, Mike Waterford (5-10, 175, 4.6) was Short, but he was Real Athletic and he had an Outstanding Arm. We also had some Really Good-Looking Wide Receivers, but none of them knew how to Really Run or Throw Correct Pass Patterns. After a Few days of working with the Quarterbacks and Receivers, they made some Great Improvements. The Flyers Originally had a One Wide Receiver Offense, but I Changed that to a Two-Wide Receiver Pro Offense and a Flex Tight End.

SIDEBAR I: In 1959, After Baylor Head Football Coach, John BridgersHad Implemented The Baltimore Colts Super Shotgun Spread-Passing Offense Formation, at Baylor, The Baylor Bears All-American Quarterback Don Trull Threw 24 Touchdown Passes in Two 10 Game Seasons, in a College Football Era when most College Football Teams were Running “Smash-Mouth” Running Offense Teams.

SIDEBAR II: In the 1963 Football Season, that I Missed, Baylor had Two Consensus First Team All-Americans in Quarterback Don Trull and Flanker Back Lawrence Elkins and they both were National Leaders in The Passing Game and The Baylor Bears Led The Nation in Passing. I played with Both Players and my Wide Receiver Mentor in 1963, 1964, and 1965 in Baylor Spring Training was NFL All-Pro and Hall of Fame Wide Receiver Raymond Berry of The Baltimore Colts.

Berry was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1973. He is also a member of the “NFL 75th Anniversary All-Time Team” as one of the best Football Players of the First 75-Years in the NFL. His Jersey Number 82 was Retired by the Indianapolis Colts and he is a member of the Patriots 1980’s All-Decade TeamAs my Mentor, Raymond Berry taught me how to Run the Right and Accurate Pass Route on every Pass Pattern. In Two Coaching Situations, I installed a Passing Offense and I Taught the Quarterback and Wide Receivers how to run “Timed” and “Accurate Pass Routes” and Both Teams won Championships.

The Naval Air Station Flyers

As a Wide Receiver and Co-Offensive Coordinator, with The NAS Flyers,  I Played in Two Navy Championship Bowl Games, and again, how Ironic was it that one of the Two Navy Championship Bowl Games was in The Second Annual Rice Bowl Championship Game on November 25, 1967, when my Guam Naval Air Station Flyers beat The Guam Yokosuka Seahawks Team by a 28-14 Score, in Agana, Guam, in The Mariana Islands, on The Barlow Football Field for The Guam Military Football Championship.

The Irony, of course, was that I was not able to play in The Bluebonnet Bowl Game in Rice Stadium, but Four years Later, I Played in a Game Called The Rice Bowl, on Guam, in The Mariana Islands.

1967 RICE BOWL GAME

In that Rice Bowl Championship Game, I Returned The Opening Kickoff 87-Yards for a Touchdown, giving The Naval Air Station Flyers a Quick 7-0 Lead and we Never Lost Control of the Game, in a 28-14 Victory.

To go with my 87-Yard Opening Kickoff Return, I also Caught Five Passes for 138-Yards, Returned Three Punts for 46-Yards, and had an Interception Return for 16-Yards, giving me an Incredible 287-Yards of Total All-Purpose Yardage in The Guam Military Football Championship Bowl Game and then I was Presented The MVP Award Trophy after The Game.

1967 All-Greater Pacific Navy Football Championship Bowl Game
Tokyo, Japan

Then, a Couple Weeks later, on December 9, 1967, in the All-Greater Pacific Navy Football Championship Bowl Game, my Naval Air Station Flyers beat the Tokyo Japan All-Greater Navy All-Star Team, in Tokyo, Japan and in that Bowl Game, I was also Voted as the MVP in The All-Greater Pacific Navy Championship Bowl Game in the 21-7 Victory.

In that All-Greater Pacific Navy Championship Bowl Game, I Caught Six Passes for 146-Yards, including a 38-Yard Touchdown. I also Returned Two Kickoffs for 66-Yards and Three Punts for 43-Yards, giving me 255-Yards of All-Purpose Yardage. And Yes! Both Navy Bowl Games would have Qualified me for a Spot on my Weekly College Football MVP Awards. But back to the 2017 and 2018 Bowl Games.

ROSE BOWL GAME Between THE OKLAHOMA SOONERS and THE GEORGIA BULLDOGS in Pasadena, California on January 1, 2018 at 5:00 on ESPN TV.

Although there seems to be a Lot of Bowl Games this year, there are Really only Three Huge Bowl Games of Great Importance. Those Three Huge Bowl Games of Great Importance are The College Football Playoff Semi-Final ROSE BOWL GAME Between THE OKLAHOMA SOONERS and THE GEORGIA BULLDOGS in Pasadena, California on January 1, 2018 at 5:00 P.M on ESPN TV.

Oklahoma (12-1) is in the playoffs for the second time in three years, losing to Clemson in the Orange Bowl in 2015, but The Sooners Will Come into these Playoffs as Possibly The Hottest Team, having Won Eight Games in a Row. Georgia (12-1) is making its playoff debut, getting here by Beating Auburn in the SEC Championship Game, to avenge their  only Loss of The Season.

With Heisman Trophy Quarterback, Quarterback Baker Mayfield, The Oklahoma Sooners are Going to be Very Hard to Beat, but Georgia has Two Outstanding Running Backs in Nick Chubb (#27) and Sony Michel (#1), who will “Give Them Fits” in The Rose Bowl.

Image result for Nick Chubb Photos

The Georgia Bulldogs also Produced a Georgia School-Record 3,426-Yards and 36 Touchdowns, with Super Running Backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel responsible for 2,123-Yards and 26 Touchdowns. The Oklahoma Sooners Limited Teams to 4.02-Yards Per Carry and on only Four Occasions have they been Run-On for more than 200-Yards with Kansas State and West Virginia each managing Four Rushing Touchdowns.

Related imageBaker Mayfield (#6) Won The Heisman, Maxwell Award, Davey O’Bryant Award, and Walter Camp Award as The Outstanding 2017 College Football Player!

I would Expect a Really Tough and Exciting Back-and-Forth Football Game, but with the Top Quarterback in the Country Leading The Sooners, it will be Very Hard for any of these Teams to Beat The Sooners in the Semifinals or Finals for The National Championship.

AND

And then, The Other College Football Playoff Semi-Final SUGAR BOWL GAME Between THE CLEMSON TIGERS and THE ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE in New Orleans, Louisiana on January 1, 2018 at 8:45 P.M. on ESPN TV.

SUGAR BOWL (CFB Playoff Game): Clemson Against Alabama, 8:45 P.M. ET on January 1, 2018 on ESPN.

AND THEN

Then The Third and Most Important Bowl Game Of The Year will be Played One Week Later on January 8, 2018 as THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP BOWL GAME will be Played in Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia and it will Also be on ESPN TV.

 Baker Mayfield of The Air-Raid Passing Offense ERA and Don Trull of The Smash-Mouth Run Offense ERA Both Win National Passing Championships!

Oklahoma All-American Quarterback Baker Mayfield Reminds me of Former Baylor All-American Quarterback Don Trull and They Both Have Some Incredible Comparisons. One of The Biggest Comparison was that neither of them were Heavily Recruited, but both of them Led The Nation in Passing and they both were Sitting in New York for The Heisman Trophy Award.

Mayfield was from Austin, Texas, a few Miles from The University of Texas, but he was not Recruited by any Texas Schools and he went to Oklahoma; whereas Trull was from Oklahoma City Southeast, a few Miles from The University of Oklahoma, but was not Recruited by any Oklahoma Schools and he went to Baylor in Waco, Texas.

In 2017, Mayfield led The NCAA in a Lot of Categories, including The Completing of 71 Percent of his passes, 41 Touchdown Passes, Passing Yards Per Attempt with 11.8-Yards, Total Yards Per Play with 10.2-Yards, Touchdowns Responsible for with 46, and an Incredible 203.8 Passing Efficiency in 13 Games.

In 1963, Trull Playing in an Unbelievable “Smash-Mouth” Running-Offense ERA and he Played in a 10-Game Schedule. Trull and The Baylor Bears Started a Completely New Passing ERA in Duplicating The NFL Passing Game. In 1963, Trull led the NCAA in Passing with 2,157-Yards, Completions with 174, Touchdowns Responsible for with 23, and 406 Total Offensive Plays.

Mayfield is The Hottest Quarterback in the Country, but The Georgia Pass Defense will be The Best Pass Defense that he has faced all year. The Bulldogs are Ranked Second in The Country Against the Pass, allowing 158.3-Yards Per Game, with only Four Teams able to Complete better than a 60-Per Cent Pass Completion.

1. Clemson (12-1) – For the Third Consecutive Year, Clemson has made the College Football Playoff. It is the Second Time The Tigers have been the #1 Overall Seed, as they also claimed the top spot in 2015. A Decisive 38-3 ACC Championship Victory over Miami “Sealed the Deal” for Clemson, which only has one Loss on its Record, a 27-24 Road Loss to Syracuse in a Game in which Clemson Quarterback Kelly Bryant (#2 on the Left) was Injured.

Bryant has been Outstanding in the six games since the Syracuse loss, completing 125-of-186 passes (67 percent) for 1,303 yards, nine touchdowns and just two interceptions. Clemson entered selection day with eight wins over teams with a .500 or better record, including victories over Auburn and Miami.

Image result for Sugar Bowl Game 2018 Logo

2. Oklahoma (12-1) – The Sooners have not been ranked worse than #5 since the selection committee unveiled their initial 2017 Rankings in Week 10 and with Heisman Trophy Winner, Baker Mayfield, they have Some Very Impressive Wins, including Two Wins over TCU and One in Fort Worth; Ohio State in Columbus; Oklahoma State; and West Virginia.

3. Georgia (12-1) The Georgia Bulldogs made the jump from #6 to #2 after a Great  Victory over Auburn in the SEC Championship Game. They avenged their only loss of the season, which was a 40-17 Loss  at Auburn. Georgia put itself in position to make The Playoffs after a Huge Victory on the road over Notre Dame in Week #2 and with the exception of their loss to The Auburn Tigers, The Georgia Bulldogs Rolled-Through The SEC Conference as they Won by an Average of 29 Points in their Seven Regular Season SEC Victories.

The Georgia Bulldogs are the Very First Non-Alabama SEC Team to make the College Football Playoff.

4. Alabama (11-1) – There was Absolutely No Way the Playoff Selection Committee could “Leave-Out” The One-Loss Alabama Crimson Tide. Before they loss at Auburn, The Crimson Tide had been Ranked #1 or #2 in Every Single 2017 Playoff Ranking. The Auburn Tigers were The Hottest Team in the Country in November, taking down two #1 Teams at home, so a 26-14 loss to Auburn certainly isn’t the worst loss among the teams in the playoff field.

After Ohio State beat Wisconsin in The Big-10 Conference Championship Game, the Biggest Question was whether the Committee would Value Better Wins and a Conference Championship for Ohio State or Alabama with fewer losses and perhaps a more Convincing Eyeball Test as being a Better Team than Ohio State with Two Losses.

Despite not playing in the SEC Championship and a relative lack of perceived quality wins, Alabama beat Florida State when The Seminoles were ranked #3 in the AP Top 25 Poll and In addition, had wins over LSU and Mississippi State.

While it took an 11th Hour Decision by the Committee to keep The Alabama Playoff Streak Alive, The Crimson Tide made the Playoffs for the Fourth Consecutive Year. This is their lowest final ranking in the playoff era, after entering the playoff ranked No. 1 in 2014 and 2016, and No. 2 in 2015.

2017 SUPER ALL-AMERICAN FOOTBALL TEAM! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Scouting Notes I: I have been Selecting College Football Weekly MVP Awards for The Last Fourteen Weeks, and In those 14 Weeks, there were Players with Multi MVP Awards, leading us to believe that they are the Best Football Players in the Country, but The Player had to be on The Winning Team to Qualify for The Weekly MVP Award.

Scouting Notes II: Some Great Performances were not Included on Some Great Players, because their Team Did Not Win. I also did not Select Weekly Offensive Linemen MVP’s, because they were Too Difficult to Select. With these Great Performances on the Losing Team and All Super Offensive Linemen, I have Evaluated all of them on their Highlight Films, so they Could Qualify to be Selected to Our College Football All-American Team. The Last Number for each Player Represents the Number of MVP Awards that he Won or If Evaluated on Highlight Film, it will Read (HF).

Scouting Notes III: The Last Column is My NFL Draft Choice Selection in the 2018 or 2019 Draft.

The Super All-American “B” Team

In all of my years of Playing Football, I Never Played One Single Down on the “B” Team,  however I did play on the “B” Team in Basketball, as a Sophomore, in High School.

I Released my 2017 College All-American Football All-American Team on Saturday, just before The Heisman Trophy Award Announcement, and as I am Looking-Over my 2017 All-American Football Team, I would have loved to have been able to have played on this Team that is led by Players with their First Name or Last Name Starting with a “B” and could be Considered as The All-American “B” Team. And Incidentally, three of the Top Heisman Candidates were on  That All-American “B” Team.

Ironically, there were an Unbelievably and Amazing Twelve All-American First Team Players with their First or Last Name, Starting with a “B” Letter. The All-American “B” First Team includes Four Skill Players, Three Offensive Linemen, and Five Defensive Players.

In the Photo: #6 Baker, #78 Brown, and #9 Bradley

The 12 All-American “B” Team Players include the Following Players:

QuarterBack – – Baker Mayfield – Oklahoma
Running Back Bryce Love – Stanford

SAINTS ROOKIE ALVIN KAMARA ALREADY COMPARED TO HERSCHEL WALKER AND GALE SAYERS! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS ROOKIE ALVIN KAMARA ALREADY COMPARED TO HERSCHEL WALKER AND GALE SAYERS IN SETTING ROOKIE RECORDS!

New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara (41) scores 33 yard pass Td against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during a NFL football game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017.

Alvin Kamara (#41) was Actually Pretty Incredible on Sunday in what could be Called a “One-Man-Show” in the 26-20 Loss to The Los Angeles Rams with his 188-Yards of All-Purpose Yards and Two Touchdowns. This Fabulous Game for Kamara was Still not Enough to keep The Rams from Snapping The Saints Eight-Game Winning Streak.

“Listen, there’s always bright spots,” Saints All-Pro Quarterback Drew Brees said when asked about The Great Kamara Day, that included a 74-Yard Touchdown Run in the First quarter and a 15-yard Touchdown Catch in the Fourth Quarter.

Check-Out The Alvin Kamara Sensational 74-Yard Touchdown Run Against The Los Angeles Rams.

Kamara also had two other Unbelievable Runs after the Catch that included him breaking, eluding, and an Unbelievable Hurdle of Several Tacklers. 

Check-Out The Unbelievable Alvin Kamara Hurdle over Several Ram Players:

“Every time the ball was in his hands, it was exciting,” Brees said. “He was making people miss, he was breaking tackles, he was jumping over people. He’s continuing to progress in  Becoming a Great Player and a Huge part of The Saints Offense.”

According to ESPN, Kamara is now the First Player in the NFL since Herschel Walker in 1986 with more than 500-Yards Rushing and 500-Yards Receiving in his First 11 Career Games. And according to Elias Sports BureauKamara has now matched Gale Sayers in 1965 as the only Two Rookie Running Backs in NFL History with Multiple Games of 150-Yards of All-Purpose Yards with a Rushing Touchdown and a Touchdown Catch.

THE 2017 NFL DRAFT
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Image result for 2017 NFL Draft Logo Photos

If Ten Different NFL Scouts Rated all 32 of the 2017 NFL Draft Classes, there would be Ten Different Draft Class Rankings and the Reason is that all Ten Different Scouts would be Using Ten Different Set of Standards. This is not to say that all Ten Rankings would be Wrong, but all Ten Different Rankings did not Take into Consideration all of the Undrafted Free Agents that were not Drafted in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Some of the Best Players in NFL History were not Drafted and they Fell-Through-The-Cracks of not being Drafted in the NFL Draft and were not going to get a chance to play in the NFL until an NFL Team Signed Them as an Undrafted Free Agent, including Kurt Warner; Two Longtime Friends, Warren Moon and Wes WelkerPriest Holmes, John Randle, James Harrison, and then the recently retired Tony Romo. These Undrafted Free Agents also Include Three Hall of Fame Quarterbacks, including Warner, Moon, and Romo. Also Remember: Warner was Sacking Groceries before given a chance to play in the NFL.

Basically, there are some Unbelievable Diamonds-In-The-Rough out there and The Falcons, Saints, Buccaneers, and Pantherdid a Great Job in finding some Incredible Undrafted Free Agents. Some of these Incredible Undrafted Free Agents include SS Quincy Mauger of Georgia, OT Will Freeman of Southern Miss, WR Reggie Davis of Georgia, and OC Cam Keizer of Portland State for the Atlanta Falcons; OC Cameron Tom of Southern Miss and OG Clint Van Horn of Marhall for the Saints; TE Antony Auclair of Laval, OLB Richie Brown of Mississippi State, OLB Paul Magloire of Arizona, and CB Jonathan Moxey of Boise State; and then WR Cameron Posey of Purdue and MLB Ben Boulware of Clemson for the Carolina Panthers.

I decided to Rate and Rank Every NFL Team within their NFL Conference and their are Eight Conferences in the NFL with Four Teams within each Conference.

Please Remember: Every NFL Scout or NFL Analysis Scout has their own Evaluation Process! My Rating and Ranking Evaluation Process for over 40 Years has been my MEARS RATING SYSTEM which Stands-For MAX EMFINGER ASSETS RATING SYSTEM. A Football Player with Great ASSETS is a Player with a Great Forty, a Great Vertical Jump, a Great Pro-Shuttle, or a Great Standing Broad Jump in Relationship To His Position.

THE MEARS RATING SYSTEM

There is a Set Standard Measurables that is Set for Every Position on the Football Field to include each Measurable that is Measured at a Super Combine. These Set Standards will not Change, but since the Football Players at Every Level are getting Bigger, Stronger, and Faster; the MEARS RATINGS will Continue to get Higher and Higher and Higher!

The MEARS RATING SYSTEM, or a similar type Rating System, is very important for all of the NFL Scouts, and the NFL Scouting Combine is the first time that Really “Accurate Measurables” are recorded on the NFL Players before The NFL Draft. It’s easy to say someone can run a 4.4 or a 4.3 Forty, but before an Accurate Hand-Held Timing by a Professional Talent Scout or either by a slower, but Accurate Laser Timing is done, most Forty Times are less than Accurate.

Technique is also very important and that is why College Football Players before the Annual NFL Scouting Combine, before entering the NFL Draft, will hire a Sports Trainer to train and teach them how to do a proper Vertical Jump, Pro-Agility Shuttle, a Standing Broad Jump and yes, the Forty.

Quarterbacks and Kickers are always going to be hard to measure, because they either do not go to Super Elite Combines or they do extremely poor at Super Combines so these two positions must be evaluated very carefully on their Highlight Film or in person and then their MEARS RATING is going to be estimated. I have learned how to Evaluate them and give them an honest MEARS RATING.

SCOUTING NOTE I: The Measurables of a Football Prospect are of Really Great Importance, but it is Very Obvious that some Very Successful NFL Teams feel that they are of Really Great Importance, while some other NFL Teams do not believe that they are of Great Importance. The Ultimate Reason that the NFL Scouting Combine is so Important is because in many cases, this is the First Time that the NFL Scouts get a chance to Really View how Fast and how Athletic that a Prospect is in Relationship to his Position with other Players at the Same Position.

Marshon Lattimore (6-0, 193, 4.33, 38.5, 4.13, 132, 19) of the New Orleans Saints had Incredible Speed Measurables at the 2017 Scouting Combine and In Fact his 2,866 MEARS RATING was the Second Best behind DE Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns with a Mind-Boggling 2,929 MEARS RATING, and who was Drafted #1 Overall.

Lattimore had Maximum MEARS RATING Points in the Pro-Shuttle and the Bench Press; plus Multi Points in Several others. With his 2,866 MEARS RATING, Lattimore became the #1 Rated Player in the NFC South. Tight End O.J. Howard of Alabama and Tampa Bay Buccaneers also had an Unbelievable 2,847 MEARS RATING and he Finished in the Top Five in the 2017 Draft Class. New SLOT Back Christian McCaffrey of Stanford and The Carolina Panthers with a Fabulous 2,829 MEARS RATING will help QB Cam Newton move their New Offense down the field; just as New SLOT Back Alvin Kamara of Tennessee and The New Orleans Saints with a Fabulous 2,818 MEARS RATING will help QB Drew Brees move their New Offense down the field.

SCOUTING NOTE II: In Rating and Ranking the NFL Teams, in the 2017 NFL Draft, I am only Counting the NFL Players with Super Gold (7)Gold (6), Blue (5), and Red (4) MEARS RATINGS and have taken an Average of all of these Players on Each Team and Counted the Average for the Final NFL Team Rankings. Also, some of these Free Agents may have already been released.

SCOUTING NOTE III: Gold Ratings Include Free Agents With Incredible Measurables! All of these Free Agents have Incredible MEARS RATINGS of over 2,700, but since they were Free Agents, and not Drafted, they may not be as Hot a Prospect as those that were Drafted ahead of them. Always Remember that a Player with Incredible Measurables Can Get-To The NFL from Any College in America.

SCOUTING NOTE IV: In dealing with Free Agents, I have Decided to Give One Super-Star Free Agent to Each NFL Team, including Players like Dontari Poe of the Falcons; Adrian Peterson of the SaintsDeSean Jackson of the Bucs; and Captain Munnerlyn of the Panthers in the NFC South Team Rankings.

On March 8, 2015, The New Orleans Saints Re-Signed Heisman Trophy Running Back Mark Ingram to a Four-Year, $16 Million Contract with $6.1 Million Fully Guaranteed and including a $3.6 Million Signing Bonus.

In his Contract, Ingram Could also earn additional Money with even more Incentives. What is Really Interesting in this Ingram Contract is an Unbelievable Clause in his Contract, that States that if Ingram is Voted to The All-Pro Team by The Associated Press, in either 2016 or 2017, he Could become a Free Agent.

Ingram Re-Did his contract Twenty Days Later, on March 28, 2016, that Converted his  $2.235 Million of Salary into a Signing Bonus that Reduced his 2016 Cap-Charge by $1.49 Million. His Cap-Figures will increase by $745,000 in each Remaining Contract Year.

This all Took-Place Last Spring, just before The 2017 NFL Draft, on April 27-29, 2017. Then, a Month Later, after the Mark Ingram Contract, The New Orleans Saints Pulled-Off an Incredible Deal by Negotiating to get Future NFL Hall of Fame Running Back Adrian Peterson. The Saints figured that by getting Peterson, they would now have Two Former All-American Running Backs that would give Super-Star Quarterback Drew Brees another Outstanding Running Back in their Running Game to go with the Great Drew Brees Passing Game.

So, then when The 2017 NFL Draft Came-Around, and The Saints had a Chance to get another Outstanding All-Purpose Slot-Back and Running Back in Alvin Kamara, and although they already had Two All-NFL Running Backs, they just could not pass on getting a Super Slot-Back Player like Kamara and so they Drafted him, causing a Real “Traffic Jam” in The Saints Backfield.

All Three Saints Running Backs and The Saints Realized very Quickly in their Pre-Season that there was a Real Problem with Three Great Running Backs and so The Saints Negotiated another Great Deal that was Great for All of The Three Running Backs, but mostly a Fabulous Deal for The Saints and The Deal was a Trade of Peterson to the Arizona Cardinals, who needed a Running Back.

The Saints lost their First Two Games of the 2017 Season, but after The Saints Traded Peterson to The Arizona Cardinals, all Three Running Backs have been Super-Stars and both The Cardinals and The Saints have Vastly been  Improved, including Eight Straight Victories, including MVP Games for both of The Saints Running Backs, who were Both Honored for their Outstanding Performances in Game Nine and Game Ten.

As the New Orleans Saints have Piled-Up Eight Straight Victories, their players have Received plenty of Recognition from the NFL.

Whether it’s awards directly from the league or those handed out by its sponsors, it seems like at least one New Orleans Saints Player is receiving some kind of recognition nearly every week.

In Game Nine, Ingram ran for 131-Yards and Three Touchdowns Against The Buffalo Bills. In addition to this award, he was also The FedEx Ground Player of the Week.

His Backfield Teammate, Alvin Kamara, has also been receiving His Share of Awards, and for the third time this season, Kamara was named the Pepsi Rookie of the Week Award. Against The Bills, Kamara had 138-Yards Rushing and a Touchdown.

Running Back Mark Ingram, Received The Castrol Edge Clutch Performer of the Week Award for Week Six, Against The Lions and then he Won The Award again for Week Ten.

SUPER RUNNING BACK MARK INGRAM COULD BE A FREE AGENT!
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

On March 8, 2015, The New Orleans Saints Re-Signed Heisman Trophy Running Back Mark Ingram (#22) to a Four-Year, $16 Million Contract with $6.1 Million Fully Guaranteed and including a $3.6 Million Signing Bonus.

In his Contract, Ingram Could also earn additional Money with even more Incentives. What is Really Interesting in this Ingram Contract is an Unbelievable Clause in his Contract, that States that if Ingram is Voted to The All-Pro Team by The Associated Press, in either 2016 or 2017, he Could become a Free Agent.

Ingram, obviously, did not Achieve All-Pro in 2016, but with the way that he is Playing in 2017, he could very well be Selected to the All-Pro Team, but then after Future Hall of Fame Running Back Adrian Peterson was Traded to The Arizona Cardinals, he is Putting Together a Potential All-Pro Season.

Ingram Re-Did his contract Twenty Days Later, on March 28, 2016, that Converted his  $2.235 Million of Salary into a Signing Bonus that Reduced his 2016 Cap-Charge by $1.49 Million. His Cap-Figures will increase by $745,000 in each Remaining Contract Year.

This all Took-Place Last Spring, just before The 2017 NFL Draft, on April 27-29, 2017. Then, a Month Later, after the Mark Ingram Contract, The New Orleans Saints Pulled-Off an Incredible Deal by Negotiating to get Future NFL Hall of Fame Running Back Adrian Peterson. The Saints figured that by getting Peterson, they would now have Two Former All-American Running Backs that would give Super-Star Quarterback Drew Brees another Outstanding Running Back in their Running Game to go with the Great Drew Brees Passing Game.

Then when The 2017 NFL Draft Came-Around, and The Saints had a Chance to get another Outstanding All-Purpose Slot-Back and Running Back in Alvin Kamara, and although they already had Two All-NFL Running Backs, they just could not pass on getting a Super Slot-Back like Kamara and so they Drafted him, causing a Real “Traffic Jam” in The Saints Backfield.

Then in that Tenth Game of the Season and Eighth Straight Saints Victory, Ingram had Two Incredible Runs of 31-Yards and 36-Yards for a Touchdown in a 34-31 Overtime Victory.

RAMS 26 -SAINTS 20
November 26, 2017

Mark Ingram entered this game on Sunday Ranked Fourth in the NFL with 806-Yards Rushing and in a Very Good Spot to be a Pro-Bowler, but he put-up his lowest yardage total of the season Sunday as he Carried the Football 11 Times for only 31-Yards as The Rams broke The Saints Winning Streak at Eight 26-20 loss to The Rams on Sunday.

In this Game, Ingram was clearly Out-Played by his Running Back Teammate, Alvin Kamara, who Rushed for 87-Yards on only Five Carries and a Touchdown and Caught 6 Passes from Drew Brees for another 101-Yards, giving him 188-Yards of All-Purpose Yards and Two Touchdowns.

Alvin Kamara (#41) was Actually Pretty Incredible on Sunday in what could be Called a “One-Man-Show” in the 26-20 Loss to The Los Angeles Rams with his 188-Yards of All-Purpose Yards and Two Touchdowns. This Fabulous Game for Kamara was Still not Enough to keep The Rams from Snapping their Eight-Game Winning Streak.

“Listen, there’s always bright spots,” Saints All-Pro Quarterback Drew Brees said when asked about The Great Kamara Day, that included a 74-Yard Touchdown Run in the First quarter and a 15-yard Touchdown Catch in the Fourth Quarter.

Kamara also had two other Unbelievable Runs after the Catch that included him breaking, eluding, and an Unbelievable Hurdle of Several Tacklers.

“Every time the ball was in his hands, it was exciting,” Brees said. “He was making people miss, he was breaking tackles, he was jumping over people. He’s continuing to progress in  Becoming a Great Player and a Huge part of The Saints Offense.”

According to ESPN, Kamara is now the First Player in the NFL since Herschel Walker in 1986 with more than 500-Yards Rushing and 500-Yards Receiving in his First 11 Career Games. And according to Elias Sports Bureau, Kamara has now matched Gale Sayers in 1965 as the only Two Rookie Running Backs in NFL History with Multiple Games of 150-Yards of All-Purpose Yards with a Rushing Touchdown and a Touchdown Catch.

If The Saints had not been trailing most of the game, Ingram likely would have Carried the Ball much more, but Regardless, Ingram Still has been a Statistical Saints Monster in 2017 while averaging over 18 touches per game, so look for him to return to normal production levels next week against The Carolina Panthers.
