Giving Game Balls in a loss sucks, but I put a gun to the heads of the JBB staff and forced them to give their Week 12 Game Balls. Some lived and some didn’t. It was that kind of Monday.

Without further delay, here are the Week 12 Game Balls.

Rory Anderson (JBB Podcast cohost)

Offense: Matt McGloin

Came out and had another solid performance against the Titans although at times the offense stagnated and there were too many field goals attempted. The one thing that has plagued both Mcgloin and Pryor are the drops by the wide receivers and this game was no different. On the upside, Streater continues to light it up with McGloin qnd in this sort of offense he has 100 catch potential for years to come. He is a possession machine and McGloin knows how to get him the ball.

Defense: Nick Roach

Finished the game with 1.5 sacks and a ton of tackles. He played a solid game on a squad that struggled due to some schematic issues. All in all he had a solid game.

Special Teams: Taiwan Jones

Not only covers kicks very well but he is also very close from breaking one open. Jones is an all around stud special teamer and can possibly bw the next Steve Tasker

Honorable mentions

Rod Streater
Marcel Reece
Kevin Burnett
