The Sean Taylor Memorial Meast for Week 8 is Calvin Johnson. Easiest choice of the season. Megatron finished seven yards shy of Flipper Anderson’s single-game record of 336 receiving yards in the Lions’ improbable comeback win over the Cowboys. It’s the second year in a row we’ve seen an awesome NFC North star fall short of a ’80s Rams’ player’s yardage record by single digits. Stupid retired jerks. Your records will go down yet.
Also considered: Marvin Jones, Drew Brees, Andre Ellington, Robert Quinn, Jordy Nelson
The Jeff George Memorial Least for Week 8 is Matt Barkley. The temptation to give it to Kellen Clemens was strong, as his leasty performance was all that prevented the Rams from pulling the upset of the season over the Seahawks. Nevertheless, that should not interfere with our quest to give the Least award to all three Eagles quarterbacks this season. Got Foles and now Barkley so far. Don’t let us down, Ookie. We know you can do it.
