The last few days have oddsmakers scrambling. Tom Brady's name has appeared (again) in Drudge headlines, and that's the most-read news source on Earth. I alway wondered what it felt like to be a Yankees fan in the '50s. Now I know. Mantle hurt his what?
JAX@NE: I am curious yellow. I just heard Brady's media stint live. It was short. When asked about his status Sunday, these were his words: "We'll see." Asked if this injury were more mobility or pain management, ...Read Full Post »

phinally, an easy weekend of picking. these 2 games r very very obvious. starting with:
NE-9.5: nice little 2 score spread for the pats to cover. get on it quick because it will be more than this by friday. the jags performoance vs pittsburgh, while impressive, was a mirage. the steelers played a horrible game while piling up mountains of passing yards against a very good jag d. ben roth is out in the media complaining that the steelers dont have an audible to a qb sneak in...Read Full Post »

Pair of stunners, for different reasons. The one thing they had in common was that it's not a great idea to fall behind by three scores early, no matter who you are. Even if magic is required to prove it. Both games featured calls quietly reversed and flags picked up (same thing) on orders from NY. Nobody complained. The Patriots weren't involved.
MIN 30 NO 24: Remember when the Vikings were an also-ran without a real QB? Or the Saints were aging into oblivion? W...Read Full Post »

congrats to the jags. hell of a win for them. the better team won believe it or not. BUT tomlin needs to go. the onside klicj decision just inexcusably terrible football. and the 4th and one go for it was real bad too, but the play call has to be a plunge if u go that way. relying on a te named mcdonald in a do or die time playoff drive too......boy. changes coming in pittsburgh. the refs allowed the jags quite a few PI calls to go, but that aint happening in new england. i been seeing the ja...Read Full Post »

Sure, people laughed, rolled their eyes, and made fun of Cleveland as usual. When I first heard about the parade, I thought the same. How dumb! AFTER I watched it, I changed my mind!
This was NOT a parade to CELEBRATE 0-16. This was a fan base, THEE most loyal, dedicated and passionate around TAKING A STAND. Defiance! Defiance! Decades of pure poop....ENOUGH! Bad draft choices, bad veteran choices, wrong coaching staffs time and time again, wrong front offi...Read Full Post »

We saw two top seeds win, one anticipated, the other perhaps not. One game was a blowout; the other was close, low-scoring and a shade controversial.
PHI 15 ATL 10: It was sort of heartwarming to see the maligned Nick Foles engineer a low-scoring win for the Eagles, but this somewhat poorly-officiated game had a climax nobody mentioned. When Clement got the first down at the end following Atlanta's ill-timed offside, I ran it back several times and ea...Read Full Post »

just watched pats complete a 16 play td drive with 2 mins left in the half. thing is, the drive was extended by 3 first downs on penalties. the worst of which was a false start. against the pats. that was reversed. ive never seen that before. ever.
and it goes without saying that the falcons have to fire their whats this? another phantom call against the titans! 10 second run off. entire coaching staff. i have NEVER seen such ATROCIOUS play calling in my whole life.

i commented on how each game this weekend is an offense vs defense matchup. falcon offense vs eagle defense, ne o vs titan d, pitts-jax, and nwo-minny fit the bill in that regard, but these matchups r pretty unique in another more dramatic way. old guard vs new guard. esprcially at qb.
brady vs mariotas 42 start career is the most dramatic age difference in playoff history.
matt ryan vs nick foles
rothlington against bortles
and brees vs keenum. -all mismastches....Read Full Post »

Does anyone here follow the NHL? How good is Tampa this year and do they have (barring injury) the right kind of team to withstand the brutality of the Cup playoffs and bring it home?
Man they look like a powerhouse team to me. If the games aren't called differently in the playoffs (ie., let them skate and enforce clutching/grabbing/interference) the Bolts are really explosive with a goalie who can also win a couple on his own.
And what about the expansion ...Read Full Post »
