And then there were two … teams I absolutely hate. Considering I hate them less, I have to roll with the Giants in the Super Bowl. But first, a recap of last week.
Ravens vs Patriots. That was a great game. The Patriots did exactly what they needed to do – choke down on Raven RB Ray Rice. He usually carries that offense and he had just 78 total yards.
I heard all year about the Ravens and how they NEEDED home field advantage. They openly expressed how much they NEEDED it. And they got it – except they had to go on the road for ONE game. ONE GAME. And they promptly lost. Teams go on the road every year and win playoff games. Just play football.
Niners vs Giants. Eli Happened. Before the season, I ridiculed Giant QB Eli Manning for saying he was an elite QB but he’s making me eat my words. In my defense, he threw 25 interceptions last season.
But the Book of Eli is being rewritten in a big way. He is clutch right now. He is converting 3rd down passes underhanded, lefthanded and any way he needs to get the job done. He is not bothered by the pressure. I think he is too Slingblade to feel the pressure. He is better than his brother when it comes to crunch time.
Why I hate Joe Flacco
The Ravens should lowball him on a contract offer this year. Raven QB Joe Flacco is delusional. After the game against the Patriots, the media and the announcers were saying how Flacco outplayed Tom Brady (a point I will dispute as soon as I tear Flacco’s big dumbass up for his press conference). They were also saying it was better than he usually plays. Flacco gets pissed off and tells the press he disagrees with them because that is how great he plays every week. He wants everyone to check the tape and see that he plays that great every week. Really?
This year he completed 58% of his passes. This in a year where you have other QBs completing 65 and 70% of their passes.
He completes this percentage in an offense where he probably throws 40% of his passes to his RB and a vast majority within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage.
Despite all the talk about the playoff games he has won, he has completed 54% of his playoff passes in his career with 8 TDs and 8 INTs.
Flacco did not outplay Brady. I watched the game. There are numbers and there are results. He didn’t convert when it mattered. He is another QB boosted by a great running game and a great defense with inflated win-loss stats. Flacco is not accurate, not poised, takes too many sacks and is too thin-skinned to be a great QB.
Speaking of QBs who shouldn’t be given a big contract extension, that would be Alex Smith. You just got his best. No upside. Plenty of downside.
I am sick to death of hearing about the Patriots two TEs. A receiver is a receiver. Do you have a dime defense or nickel defense?? Then use it. And if the TEs block for a run, you tackle. The Pats can’t run the ball anyway. That’s WHY THEY THROW THE BALL 70 TIMES A GAME. And if they line their TE Aaron Hernandez up in the backfield and let him run the ball, hit his ass hard and that s&^% will stop.
Bengals WR Jerome Simpson, you remember him—the one that did the running front flip into the end zone over the defender last month? Well, he was recently arrested for having 2.5 POUNDS of marijuana MAILED to his house. Now we know how he landed that flip. I BELIEVE I CAN FLY … I CAN FLY ‘CAUSE I’M F’ING HIGH. They should check his mouthpiece. Back in the day we would put gum in ours. He probably has bud in his.
Speaking of delusional, the Jets owner is now chiming in again about how he backs Coach Rex Ryan. The same coach that was asked by the media why he didn’t have more to do with the offense and developing QB Mark Sanchez. Ryan responded by blaming former Offensive Coordinator Brian Schottenheimer – that his terminology was too hard to understand. Translation: I would have gotten involved, but I didn’t really understand what was going on so I stayed out of it.
The best way to develop a young team like the Rams? Hire an old coach like Jeff Fisher with a history of developing young QBs like … Vince Young. Oops. Who do you think that dumbass hired as Offensive Coordinator? See previous paragraph.
During postgame, 49er Coach Jim Harbaugh whined about Ahmad Bradshaw’s “fumble” not being ruled as such. Watching at home I could hear the officials blow the whistle before the ball ever popped out. His forward progress had long been stopped and he was falling backwards. The play was over. For him to whine was just pitiful. I am telling you…..HARBAUGH IS CRAZY COACH.
Terrell Owens is broke and friendless?? Really?? Blew right through $80 million in career earnings. I can’t believe this s%$t happened to such a wonderful person. But in typical T.O. fashion he blamed EVERYTHING on someone else – the media, his agent, his teammates. He said people told him to “play football and let them handle his money” and he can’t imagine why that turned out so poorly. He is being sued by 4 different women for child support and blaming them for the “things they are doing to him”. He should have blamed Trojan for not personally having someone follow him around and roll a condom on for him every time he had sex with some chickenhead he met at the local Rosco’s Chicken and Waffles
Singer Rihanna had the words THUG LIFE tattoed on her knuckles. That is great. And she will be wondering why the next rapper she dates will be kicking her ass around the street like Chris Brown did. Dumbass.
Newt Gingrich can have an open marriage and sex with random chicks while married, yet run for President as a Republican – a party which says it insists on its HIGH MORAL VALUES. I love Republicans. They have the ability to smoke pole in rest area bathrooms (male and female), embezzle, hide millions in offshore accounts and have open marriages and STILL run a campaign on high moral values. They are amazing.
