SKJF Comments 1 SK: The Texans could clinch the AFCSouth this weekend.
JF: Had some luck on Turkey Day to get past Lions. 2 SK:Another win, but still waiting to see them do it in a more convincingmanner.
JF: Not playing their best, but continue to win. 10-1 stands for something.
3 SK: Was Harbaugh really consideringgoing back to Alex Smith this weekend?
JF: Went to New Orleans and took care of business. QB controversy in full effect.
4 SK:Denver may not lose another game in the regular season.
JF: Slid by Chargers to hold onto top spot in AFC.
5 SK:Averaging 43.8 points in their last five games...IMPRESSIVE.
JF: Two dominating performances in a row has their arrow pointing up.
6 SK: Still not convinced Ray Ricepicked up the first down on that 4th-and-29 play.
JF: Apparently the Giants are better than the Packers.
7 SK:Sunday just shows how valuable Jay Cutler really is to the Bears.
JF: Unimpressive win over Chiefs, but running away division title.
8 SK:Thoroughly manhandled the Pack, but which Giants team will show upeach week?
JF: Clearly I rated the Packers too high last week. They fell hard against the Giants.
9 SK: Will not go far in the postseasonwithout a running game and a brutal defense.
JF: Bears shouldn't drop a spot after a win, but the Giants' sudden rise is cruel.
10 SK: The Colts magical season continuedwith an impressive win over the Bills.
JF: Just barely missed a chance at knocking off the Falcons and making a statement.
11 SK:Don't sleep on the Law Firm. Cincy is right back in the thick ofthings.
JF: The Bengals may just be peaking at the right time of the year.
12 SK:Their run defense has collapsed as oflate.
JF: 'ChuckStrong' is more than a saying for the Colts...it's a lifestyle in Indy.
13 SK:Tough stretch coming up for a young Buccaneers team with playoffaspirations.
JF: Continue to struggle on the road. Trend may continue this weekend in Chicago.
14 SK:Tough home loss to San Francisco, but still in the playoff hunt.
JF: Looked very mediocre in blowout loss to the Bears.
15 SK:Vikings really need Percy Harvin back if they want to sniff theplayoffs.
JF: Made Cowboys look silly on Thanksgiving. Probably too little, too late though.
16 SK:A loss to the Browns? Still think they'll get it together when BigBen returns.
JF: Just didn't have it vs. 49ers. Looked over matched throughout the game.
17 SK:A win on Monday would have the Redskins one game behind the Giants inthe NFC East.
JF: Worst loss of the year...besides when they lost their QB a few weeks ago.
18 SK:Face a "Must-win" game against the Eagles this weekend.
JF: Played well enough to beat Houston, but as usual the Lions came up short.
19 SK: Ryan Tannehill has already brokenDan Marino's record for yards thrown as a rookie.
JF: Ended a rough patch on the schedule with a win. Looking to make a late run.
20 SK:Too many head-cases on the Lions, including the man in charge.
JF: Just crushed the Cardinals. Rookie CB Jenkins is double the pleasure, double the fun.
21 SK:Norv Turner will make a good OC somewhere in 2013.
JF: Have the talent to be a playoff team, but once again that won't happen this year.
22 SK: I think CJ2K may be back inTennessee.
JF: Browns handled themselves against a battered Steelers squad.

24 SK:Could see a major shakeup in Buffalo this offseason.

25 SK:Don't look now, but Cam Newton has really turned it around as oflate.
JF: After a 4-0 start, the Cardinals have lost seven in a row. OUCH!
26 SK:Janoris Jenkins is a stud. Should be in the running for DefensiveRookie of the Year.
JF: Hung tough with the Ravens for four quarters.
27 SK:Matt Barkley? Aaron Murray? Landry Jones? Kurt Warner? Anybody?
JF: What good can you say following a crushing defeat to Patriots?
28
SK:Chad Henne's resurgence may cost Blaine Gabbert his job inJacksonville.
JF: The Jags are a different team under Chad Henne...they may win FOUR games!
29 SK:You know the Jets are bad when even Fireman Ed has quit on the team.
JF: Could have had their fifth win against Jacksonville, but instead fall further down.
30 SK:The Phillies have won more recently than the Eagles.
JF: Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Wait, don't you have to be good before you can fall?
31 SK:On the bright side it looks like Oakland will be getting Run DMC backthis weekend.
JF: Oakland can't win on the road (1-5) and can't really win at home either (2-3).
32 SK:At least they have one win this season...
JF:Three more field foals to add to the season point total

Lake Park's Gino Romano goes 1-on-1 with Edgy Tim

Lake Park's Gino Romano goes 1-on-1 with Edgy Tim

Everyone who took part in the recently-held fifth annual Franklin Middle School Dodgeball Madness charity tournament played for various charitable reasons. The Lake Park Lancers football team chose to honor a person who embodied the true meaning of service and sacrifice.

Lake Park junior linebacker Gino Romano took a few minutes to explain why they decided to play in honor of fallen Bloomingdale police officer Raymond Murrel, the first ever officer who died in the line of duty for the village.

Romano also discussed the Lancers’ offseason and the team’s overall preparation for the upcoming 2017 football slate.

I caught up with Romano at the tournament in Wheaton. Proceeds benefited the school, the DuPage Hundred Club, Team Red, White and Blue and The Pat Tillman Foundation.

Scouting Report:

"System quarterback with more than 65 percent of his attempts coming inside of 10 yards. Webb has enough raw talent to be considered a developmental prospect, but his decision-making and accuracy issues beyond 10 yards is a big red flag that might be tough to overcome in the NFL." — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
