Princess Picks Jets Over Colts in AFC Championship Game on Sunday

It’s been a while since I posted predictions from the prognosticating camel of Popcorn Park Zoo, Princess, December 4th to be exact.

At the time Princess’s won- loss record stood at 7-7 and I just couldn’t take another prediction of a Giants win that evenually turned to a defeat.

Since that time however, Princess has manage to turn it around and has now amassed a 12-9 record going 5-1 since week 14. During that time she has chosen the Jets successfully 4 times.
So this week she goes back to the well and predicts a Jets win once again. Here’s what she had to say:
“Hmmmm, this is a real real tough one… You know how much I like Payton, the best QB to ever play the game….but I think the Jets have caught lightning in a bottle the last couple weeks.”

So for all Jets’s fans in the area, I hope she’s right. It really would be something to have the Jets represent the AFC in the Superbowl after a 31 year run of mediocrity.

Two Shore Boys Taken During 1st Round Of NFL Draft

It was a big day for two Monmouth County shore boys, Knowshon Moreno and Donald Brown, both were drafted earlier today during the 1st round of the NFL’s annual players draft.

Local Middletown legend Knowshon Moreno, who played football for Middletown High School South before moving onto the University of Georgia was the 12th selection in the draft, being taken by the Denver Broncos.

Here is what the scouting report had to say about Moreno:

Knowshon Moreno has the speed, strength, and ability to finish a run through, and gets up right away to get to his next touch. He is the top RB prospect this year and will make an immediate impact on the league next year. Projected to be taken some where in the teens but will instantly have a positive effect on whatever team takes him.

Atlantic Highlands native Donald Brown, played his high school ball for Red Bank Catholic before going on to star for the University of Connecticut. Brown was selected #27 by the Indianapolis Colts.

Here is what the scouting report had to say about Brown:

A solid all-around back who has shown he can be effective running inside or outside, Brown is more quick than he is strong and would be best used on counters, misdirections and in space. However, he has shown he can do everything well and has clear starter potential. Could really excel in a zone-blocking scheme.
Borderline first-round talent
.

Congratulations to both Moreno and Brown, from what I have heard about both of them they are each upstanding and level headed kids who are great citizens and individuals. Both should excel in the NFL for their new teams.
