The weekly recap is back to kick off this 2012 season with a bang. First things first, we want to wish Durkin well in his future fantasy endeavours as you will be easily replaced, I mean missed!!! With that being said lets get to the week 1 recap!!
We will start with a few family matchups that took place in week 1. Starting with the Great White Hope taking on the Cherry Poppers. GWH seems primed to make another deep playoff run this year as they put boots to asses and whooped up on the Poppers 162-122. Led by Julio Jones with 33 and Peyton "I'm still the Man-ning" with 29, GWH was too much for the Poppers led by Tom Brady with 21 and Demarco "Glory Holes" Murray with 20.
In our next family affair, the Killers from Kinzer took on the Taints in a tightly contested matchup. The Taints emerged victorious over the self proclaimed "this is my year" Killers 150-138. Led by Drew "blowing in the" Brees with 32 and Reggie " thanks Peyton" Wayne with 27, the Killers could not beat the Taints high powered offense led by Andre Johnson with 30 and Stevan Ridley with 27. The Killers will look to bounce back in week 2 if they want to make good on their proclamation for this year!!!!
Our final family affair saw the brothers Montgomery square off in a battle for fantasy supremacy. The Crackers were hypocritically led to victory by Tony Romo with 34 and helped by Shady McCoy with 22. The Funk could not get anything going as Matthew Stafford led the way with 20 points. To add insult in the loss, the Crackers did not replace Denarius Moore who was scratched from the lineup and they still held on 126-106. The Funk need to regroup if they want to make their first playoff appearance in their franchise's history!
The defending champion Chicken Hawks took on Team Hensley in what they hoped would be the start of their successful defense. Team Hensley noticed the target on the hawksbarack and dominated the defending champs 143-107. Led by Demarius " thank god Tebow is gone" Thomas with 32 and Darren " I catch balls" McFadden with 24, Team Hensley seemed too much for the Arian " Nation" Foster led defending champs who got no help from their defense who managed -3 points. Something tells me the waiver wire is already on fire from potential moves the Chicken Hawks want to do following their embarrassing loss and sources say that heads will roll.
In our closest matchup of the week, Spider Monkeys took on the appropriately named Better than Durkin. BTD got their first win by knocking off the Monkeys 129-125. Led by Aaron Rodgers with 31 and Rob " The Big" Gronkowski with 18, BTD was too much for the Monkeys who were led by Herman Moore and Barry Sanders....... I mean Megatron with 22 and Kevin Smith with 24. It's obvious that the Spider Monkeys have put a great amount of their hopes on the Detroit Lions offense and as history has proven, that should bodwe well for the rest of the league!!!!
In our marquee matchup, former roomate's and ex-champs collided in an opening week matchup for the ages. The Bluntz pounded Roc Nation 194-156 to get off to a great start this year. The all star team of Matty Ice, Ray Rice and Brandon Marshall proved to powerful for the Roc. Roc Nation had good efforts by Mike Vick, Frank Gore, and Pierre Garçon but it proved to be not enough for the overmatched Roc Nation. The Bluntz look strong and could be the team to beat this year unless they get but by the injury bug.
There is the Week 1 recap. Remember, 1 week does not make a season, but it will annoy the shit out of you having to hear Randler talk shit!!!!
Until next week, good luck in week 2!!!!

The point I am making is simple. True fans understand that seasons like this occur and you have to go through times like this to become better. When the trade deadline comes and goes there will more than likely be a few new faces as we as fans say goodbye to some of our favorites, but such is life. Remember one thing, a true fan is a fan of the name on the front of the jersey, not the back of it. Im sure there will be a number of fans who will no longer like the Phils because of the trades they make in the upcoming days and that just proves my point about those so called "fans". So when you fair weather fans and bandwagon jumpers want to jump back on board with the Phillies when they're doing good again go ahead but just remember that you will not be considered a true fan.
I'm Kyle Montgomery and this has been my two cents.

In Philadelphia there has been legends associated with the number 20. Mike Schmidt, Andre Waters, Chris Pronger ( Go Flyers!!!), and of course, Brian Dawkins. I can remember when the Eagles drafted Dawk, and I remember telling my brother how good this guy from Clemson was. As a Florida State fan, I watched B Dawk lay a hit on Warrick Dunn in 1995 that hurt me as I watched it!!!! It was then I started what I do every year now watching college football, I said to myself, "He'd look good in Eagle green!!!!".

Dawkins became the team leader on that 1998 3-13 team and changed the way I thought as a fan. Our defense was a feared defense again, and it was a large part due to Brian Dawkins and the mastermind behind the scheming, Jim Johnson. Dawk was the most feared hitter in the defensive secondary for 10 plus years under Johnson's schemes and brought an intimidation factor back to the Eagles defense that was lacking since Reggie and Jerome of the early 90's. B Dawk was exactly the type of athlete we wanted and needed in Philly; a tough, hard nosed player who gave everything he had on the field and in the process expected the exact same from every single player along side of him.
There are numerous highlights that can be brought up when remembering Dawk, the suplex, the interception of Favre in the infamous 4th and 26 game, the Superman tackle, the fake punt he took to the house, the list goes on. The memory that I will always have and the picture that is stuck in my mind to remember Brian Dawkins was before, during, and after the 2004 NFC Championship game.

The everlasting memory was Dawk after the win holding that George Halas Trophy and his post game speech to the fans!!! Still gets me pumped up and brings a tear to my eye every time I hear him say, "Give us our dang respect!!!!!!".
In the age of free agency, Dawkins was loyal to the team that drafted him for 13 seasons until the Eagles decided not to re-sign him. In true Dawkins form, he handled it with the class we came to love about him and the respect for the game that he expressed over his years in Philly. I can't express the feeling I had knowing that as a season ticket holder, I'd attend a game without B Dawk in an Eagles uniform.

Weapon X, Wolverine, B Dawk, Dawk, or just Brian Dawkins; one things for sure, there will be "Hall of Famer" said before any of those names in the near future. Brian Dawkins was by far my favorite athlete ever and I'm sure it will be a long time until someone takes over that spot. He will go down in history as one of the greatest safeties to play the game and one of the most feared defensive players ever. For 13 seasons he was the heartbeat of my beloved Eagles and for that I can say I was privileged to watch a Hall of Famer play week in and week out. He played the game hard, but with class. On the field he was a badass, but off it he was a gentleman. Brian Dawkins, THANK YOU!! Thank you for being a great player, leader and role model for those needing guidance. Congrats on your retirement and 16 "X" traordinary seasons in the NFL. I bleed Eagles green and it is with pride that I say this....In my eyes, you were arguably the best player in franchise history.
