The NFL MVP (of the moment) hails from Pewaukee

Oct 12, 2014 -- 10:30am

We had a spirited discussion on the "Alex and Drew with Needles at Noon" show last week regarding Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.

I maintain that Watt is the MVP of the NFL through five games.

I know it's a quarterback-driven league. But, the guy is a freak. He's scored three touchdowns. He bats down passes. He thwarts triple-teams.

If I was building a franchise these days, I'd start with Watt and try to grab a quarterback from the "second tier." We used the phrase "gold rather than platinum."

Do you agree?

Watch this video and then answer.

 

The "Petakas Punt-Catching Challenge"

Oct 01, 2014 -- 3:57pm

ESPN Wisconsin staff

Alex Petakas, co-host of ESPN Milwaukee's midday show "Alex and Drew with Needles at Noon," downplayed the difficulty of fair catching a punt in the National Football League.

Petakas, only a few years removed from his days as a self-described slow, mostly unskilled starting wide receiver on his high school team in Florida, was so certain of his claims that he was willing to suit up and put his own skills to the test.

Thanks to the coaching staff at Nathan Hale High School in West Allis and a Juggs pitching machine, a challenge was born.

Petakas claimed that he could catch eight out of 10 punts while wearing a helmet and shoulder pads and with "gunners" bearing down on him.

How did he do?

Watch the video.

And, if you have an idea for Alex's next challenge, send it to ad540@espnmilwaukee.com.

Alex and Drew make a video

Intern Denny Gallagher, a student at Marquette University, decided we needed a "promo" video for the "Alex and Drew" portion of "Alex and Drew with Needles at Noon."

We didn't want to squelch his youthful enthusiasm, so we let him bring a camera into the "One Call That's All" studios.

Our only edict: try to make us look cool.

It's up to you to decide whether he succeeded.

But, we're going to have him shoot some more videos before the fall semester ends.
