IN THE SOMEBODY’S GOING TO GET KNOCKED OUT GAME OF THE WEEK: Steelers 30, Ravens 16. The Ravens defense is a mess. So is the Steelers. The problem with the Steelers is that when they get a lead, the offense shuts down. It gives the other teams hope,. If the Steelers would start stomping some teams from start to finish, it would go a long way towards fixing the defensive problems.
In the only other game worth watching this week, Patriots 30, Jets 20. This one may be entertaining if only to see the smile get wiped off the face of Jet Coach Rex Ryan.
Went to the Seahawks vs. Chiefs game last week in Seattle. Hilarious. Seahawks lost because the 12th man (home crowd) wasn’t good enough. Want to know why.? They were all drunk and too busy being distracted arguing with me about the Steelers to pay attention to the game. Loved it.
The stadium was great. Never even made it to my seat. The concourses and areas around the stadium had so many people hanging out and drinking and the view was better than in our seats.
Buffalo WR Steve Johnson dropped a surefire game-winning TD pass in overtime last week.
He started to be a man about it in the press conference, about how he’d failed and let the team down. Okay.
But then he gets too much time to think about it and decides to turn into a complete moron. He gets on twitter and blames God for dropping the ball. That is some funny s%$#.
Why is Josh McDaniels still the Coach and GM of the Broncos? Why?? He traded away/alienated all of his good players, and now just got caught cheating by videotaping an opponent’s practice. He so wants to be Bill Belichick. Last time I checked, Tom Brady wasn’t on the trading block.
Why the NFL is screwy. Steeler LB James Harrison makes some “illegal” hits at full speed during a game.Meanwhile, Titan CB Cortland Finnegan and Texan WR Andre Johnson get in a brawl on the field, with helmets torn off and actual punches thrown. On national TV.
Finnegan and Johnson get no suspensions and lesser fines than Harrison. The message the league is sending is obvious: they want to talk about player safety so they can bump the schedule to 18 gamesm and make more television money. So they talk about cleaning up dirty hits, but you can have a brawl on the field like a hockey team and that’s okay.
LeBron James and the Heat. I am enjoying this one. Watching them flounder. The funnier thing to me is how the Heat are reacting. They can’t believe how much people are enjoying their misery. Really? How about LeBron’s pompous over-the-top defection from Cleveland, complete with a TV special to announce where he would “take his talents to.” Or the ridiculous TV special the Heat had with James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh dancing around on stage like buffoons. After spectacles like that, can these guys really be surprised at the way people are enjoying their mediocrity? But now the players want the coach fired. They are blaming the coach? They put together their little dream team and now they are blaming the coach? You know what? LeBron James is now Brett Favre, ‘cause even with his handpicked dream team, LeBron needs more weapons.
You know what LeBron really needs … A HEART. Here is his problem. He is an immensely talented player but doesn’t have the cojones to be the go-to guy. The heart to carry his team in that last minute of the game. I hate Kobe, but Kobe will crush you at the end of a game. LeBron will look for one of his teammates to do it. He can’t be considered in the same conversation with Kobe ‘cause he is soft emotionally. And now you are seeing it. In Cleveland, it was everyone else’s fault ‘cause he had no talent, no backup. But even then, he was passing up open shots at the end of the game and “distributing.”
He wasn’t distributing; he was hiding from the moment. NO HEART. Wade is a closer and he is supposed to agree top play second fiddle to dumbass James. I am loving every minute of it.
LeBron is the Tin Man. Or is he the Cowardly Lion?
Christmas season is here. Which means folks are spending money they don’t have. Folks are talking to each other on the streets and in stores, saying Merry Christmas to people they can’t stand or wouldn’t otherwise talk to. Everyone is getting happy and putting up Christmas lights and neon yard art. Oh, I love Xmas. And it is just beginning. When you see Jack Daniels Eggnog on the shelf, ‘tis the season.
