Madden ’04 Monday #5 – Brad Banks

on September 1st, 2014 by SpastikMooss

Name: Brad Banks

Game Image: 
Example of Banks on Cardboard:
Brad Banks has 118 cards to his name, all from 2003.  Here is his PressPass JE autograph /200

Video: Here’s a little Banks highlight film



Team and Position on Depth Chart in Madden ’04: Banks is a 23 year old rookie free agent.  He is the 7th QB from the top with a 60 rating.  The top free agency QB is Neil O’Donnell with a 72.  Banks is sandwiched by Randy Fasani (60) and Jim Druckenmiller (59).

Some Notable Ratings: Banks 72 speed is crazy good (top 10 in the whole game as a QB), and his 60 Jump, 74 agility and 70 acceleration all aren‘t bad.

His 75 throw power and 78 throw accuracy aren’t bad either.  Bt his 45 awareness kills those throwing stats and is the heart of his 60 rating despite otherwise decent stats.

Professional Career: 2003 was a great year for college QBs in Iowa.  Iowa State had my guy, Seneca Wallace, while Iowa had Banks.  Wallace was drafted by the Seahawks, but Banks somehow went undrafted, and was picked up by the Redskins in April.  Obviously card companies tried to capitalize on Banks’ hype by giving him a ton of cards, but by July sources were calling Banks a long shot to make the team and in August Banks was officially released in favor of 7th round pick Gibran Hamdan.

Since his NFL time, Banks played in the CFL from 2004-2009 and in the AFL with the Iowa Barnstormers during the 2011 season.

Why do I remember him? I liked speedy QBs, and while Seneca was my starter, I needed a backup for when I inevitably got Seneca hurt during a rushing attempt.  Banks was the fastest QB in free agency and came very cheap, so I always chose him as my 2nd or 3rd string QB.  Over time I started picking two teams each season with Seneca starting for one and Banks starting for the other.  The fun part is I never even knew Banks was the QB at Iowa while Seneca was at Iowa State until I got back into cards.  It was all about that 70+ speed rating back then, nothing else.

From the Pedro Binder

on September 1st, 2014 by Section 36
2001 Fleer Focus

I like it.

Even after my scanner decided to have a mind of its own, I like it. It’s clean. It’s crisp. It doesn’t yell at you, it calls to you.

Sure, there are some things I don’t like. That god-forsaken gold foil shown up again. Seriously, who though this was a good idea? For every set?

The Fleer Focus logo is a bit more obvious that I’d like, but it’s not nearly as bad as many sets.

What do I like? I like how all the information I need is there. Name, team, position. And, it’s tucked away at the bottom so it doesn’t interfere too much with the picture. And, you know I’m a sucker for the player’s picture coming out into the border. I have no idea why, but I get a giddy when I see that. The only way Fleer could have improved that is if Pedro’s back foot was trimmed to the border. Then it would have looked like Pedro was stepping through the border as he pitched. But, I’ll take that I can get.

The picture itself is pretty standard Pedro fare. Mid-windup, ready to make another hitter wish he never stepped to the plate. On Pedro’s face, you can read his determination.

And, of course, his focus.

Blog Kiosk: 9/1/2014 – Dodger Links – Ryu Returns as Sharp as Ever

on September 1st, 2014 by Ernest Reyes

Hyun-Jin Ryu made a glorious return from the DL yesterday afternoon.  He went seven strong innings, struck out seven, gave up only four hits and walked none.  At one point he retired 14 straight Padres.  His short stint on the DL may turn out to be fortuitous.  He will likely be depended upon by the Dodger should they go deep into the playoffs, so a well rested Ryu will be important.  The photo above features Ryu preparing for the game with catcher AJ Ellis and translator Martin Kim, via Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2014Go here to check out more pics from Jon.

The Dodgers offense finally woke up against the Padres.  They mashed out twelve hits and scored seven runs.  Both Adrian Gonzalez and Matt Kemp continued their hot-hitting ways.  AGon had four hits and Kemp knocked out two; including the eventual winning run in the fifth inning.  Juan Uribe, who also just returned from the DL, was sharp at the plate, as well. He recorded two hits and drove in two runs.

Of note, Matt Kemp made a fantastic slide at home plate to score a run in the eight inning.  On a wild pitch Kemp raced for home and avoided a tag by the pitcher to score.  As Vin would say, “he looked dead to rights.”  But with a little bit of quick thinking and fast reflexes, Kemp found a way to touch the plate before getting tagged.  Watch it below.
Your browser does not support iframes.
Video Link:

The Dodgers maintain a 2.5 game lead over the Giants as they enter Labor Day.  Things are starting to get serious.  Now, check out some more links below.

Dan Haren is still listed as the Dodgers’ probable starting pitcher for Wednesday’s game against the Washington Nationals, but there are indications it will instead be rookie right-hander Carlos Frias.

He’s likely to start on Friday. Bill Plunket at the LA Register notes that the Dodgers will be going to a six man rotation.  This not only helps keep our big three arms fresh, but also allows us to audition a potential #4 pitcher should one be needed for a playoff run.

“I’ve heard his name. We’re running out of games down there, but he’s a lefty,” manager Don Mattingly said. “A lefty helps us, and Paco’s a little bit away.”

  • The Dodger rookie ball club has made the playoffs.  Via Brandon Hart at the Ogden Raptors, “Raptors Clinch Playoff Berth with Win.”  Their AA club also made the playoffs. Via Vince Lennon at WRCBtv.com, “Lookouts Clinch Playoff Berth.”
  • Check out who won Chucky.  As you may know, Joc Pederson gave away his 1994 Buick Century to one lucky fan on Fan Appreciation Day.

Congrats to Renee on winning @yungjoc650‘s1994 Buick Century! #GoTopes pic.twitter.com/lHGBQXvCNw
