The coronation of Atlanta QB Matt Ryan is again on hold, like it is every year at this time. The Falcons don’t have a going problem, they have a closing problem. They go pretty well. Got off to great starts against the ‘Hawks and Niners, but then …
If the ‘Hawks Coach Pete Carroll hadn’t completely mismanaged that game, I could have written this last week.
Even the NFL is tired of the Patriots. How far have you fallen from grace if Patriot QB Tom Brady gets fined for kicking someone in the nuts, but Lion DL Ndamukong Suh doesn’t?
There are clearly two teams the Patriots can’t beat consistently … the Ravens and the Giants.
Seeing Brady on the sidelines with that pissed off look on his face and Coach Bill Belichick storming off after that loss like a whipped little punk ass puppy was hilarious. Then Belichick got ripped by the press for his behavior. The Pats are starting to lose their GOLDEN FRANCHISE treatment now. Funny how things change when you aren’t winning Super Bowls anymore.
I am tired of hearing about Baltimore LB Ray Lewis and religion and his leadership. Blah Blah. I still remember him leaving the scene of a double murder with the suspects in his car and blood on a pretty white suit he was wearing … it still amazes me he is seen as such a hero. It is like the press is shoving him down our throats, like they want everyone to think his behavior since then is enough to make up for that.
He never came clean about that murder and nothing he is doing now makes up for that.
So we are left with two weeks worth of Harbaugh. I wish they could just cancel the Super Bowl and declare no winner for 2013.
Around the NFL
Former WR Tim Brown is crazy. First, he ripped new Bears Coach Marc Trestman because Trestman (former Raider Offensive Coordinator) opted to throw the ball to Jerry Rice (best receiver of all-time) more than Brown when he was with the Raiders.
Then he suggested that former Raider Coach Bill Callahan THREW THE SUPER BOWL IN 2001 BECAUSE HE HATED MANAGEMENT SO MUCH AND JON GRUDEN, COACHING THE BUCS AT THE TIME THEY MET IN THE SUPER BOWL, WAS CALLAHAN’S FRIEND. What coach would hate his own team so much that he would throw a super bowl game?
Junior Seau’s estate is suing the NFL. For concussions. And the case will be heard right after my lawsuit against Maker’s Mark. I didn’t know alcohol would make me do some of the things I have done. I had no way of knowing.
I know I have covered this before, but what the hell is former NFL safety Darren Sharper doing on TV? He sounds like he is HOOKED ON PHONICS when he talks. Like he is reading words out like you see them in the dictionary. “The Patriots can’t get any \pe-na-tray-shun\.” Tough to sit through.
Ray Horton, the Cardinals Defensive Coordinator last year, didn’t get the head job and threw a fit.
The Cards clearly had one redeeming quality last year: the defense. The Cards fired the head coach and offensive staff after the season ended – makes sense. But they refused to hire Horton as head coach and brought in Bruce Arians from the Colts.
I can understand that because he has worked with Peyton Manning, Ben Worthlessberger and Andrew Luck, so they want a QB friendly coach to bring in a new QB for the franchise. And I will go on record as saying that I blasted Arians for his performance in Pittsburgh and I WAS WRONG. He wasn’t the problem. So I can understand them giving him the job.
But Horton apparently freaked out on the GM so bad that he got fired. OUCH. Bad move by the Cards. But Horton needs to accept a simple fact. HE IS A GROWN MAN IN HIS 40s AND HE IS STILL WEARING BRAIDS. It’s BIG BOY time and he needs to cut the braids and put on a suit. I guarantee if you walk into an interview with braids for a professional job you are down a couple strikes before your ass hits the chair.
ESPN has already hired Ray Lewis. Why wouldn’t they? They don’t have any credibility anymore. The way they sucked Manti Te’o up and bought his b.s. story, and then after the story blew up they gave him a creampuff interview and protected themselves by saying he was the “victim” … ESPN should come out and admit they have strayed and are going to clean up their act. They should just admit they were bought out by the National Enquirer and beg for forgiveness.
American Idol. What a disaster. How did Nikki Minaj get total control of the judge’s panel? She should have never taken this job. You know how sometimes a celebrity putting their whole personality in the open so everyone can see is a bad thing. How with some people you like them less the more you see of them? Case in point.
Beyonce was caught lip-syncing at the Presidential Inauguration. Does anyone really care? I can imagine many men in America have imagined Beyonce’s lips being synced to something.
I know they have smart phones but I need a new kind of phone. With a DRUNKASS app. When I use Talk To Text when drunk … anything could come out of the translation.
A school district in California bought several AR-15 assault weapons for guards to carry. WOW! What is the name of that school DISTRICT? THE NRA ACADEMY OF LEARNING? Assault weapons? What is wrong with these kids and our country that you reach a point where you even consider buying Rambo weapons to be carried around the school. And they say they are kept in a safe. But if they are in the safe, folks will still be dead by the time they reach the guns. If you have a guard with a regular weapon, he is probably going to stop the problem just as fast as running to a safe to get a gun. What is going to happen the first time someone is shot with one of the school district’s weapons?
