What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
1) OK, We Get It – Aaron Rodgers is Crazy Good
I’m trying to make sure all you media people understand this. You can all stop with the stories telling football fans how good Aaron Rodgers is. We get it. All of the people you are telling this to are in fantasy football leagues in which they either a) curse his name because he spends every week flame-broiling your team or b) laughing uncontrollably as he scores yet another bazillion points for team Dubsism.
Please don’t tell me I need to explain which side I’m on.
2) I Never Want To Hear Another Word Out Of Boise State Until After November
November is the 11th month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars and one of four months with the length of 30 days. It is also the month when Boise State annually ends all its blue crapola about having a claim to a BCS title game. November retained its name from the Latin novem (meaning “nine”) when January and February were added to the Roman calendar, and Boise State keeps thinking it deserves a shot after the BCS was expanded to include a #1 vs #2 Championship Game.
Don’t misunderstand me…we all loved the Fiesta Bowl “Statue of Liberty” win over Oklahoma. We even loved it when you crushed them after that in a regular season game. Not to mention you beat what may very well be a participant in the SEC Championship Game this year. But when the rest of your season contains ten Roast Beef States and one seminal moment – and you blow the seminal moment – it is time you quit whining about respect.
See, the key thing you have to understand is while wins in September are nice, losses in November are season-killers. If you want respect, make those field goals when it matters against Nevada and TCU.
3) The Detroit Lions are Punk-Ass Bitches
What else can you say? This team acts like a junior-high team with a bad coach every time it gets challenged. Is it time to realize that perhaps this stems from the fact their head coach is a complete pussy who can’t take a “handshake” he didn’t like?
I can’t help but notice that a month weeks ago, writers were ready to annoint this team as the best in the NFL, and since then, the head coach got into an on-field incident which made him look like a third-grader, the team has lost three of its last four, and the team is getting a reputation for being “dirty.”
It seems nobody in Detroit gets that when your star defensive player gets called on the commissioner’s carpet, then he proceeds to keep ripping helmets off people, the “dirty” tags are going to start flying.
But there’s more to it than that. Just look at this past week – there was Kyle Vanden Bosch’s clear late hit on Matt Forte, Cliff Avril attempt to rip Forte’s head off, Nick Fairley driving Cutler into the turf, Matthew Stafford’s assault of D.J. Moore, and my favorite, the Dominic Raiola’s deliberate chop-block – it’s hard to ignore all that.
This team is going to draw some serious “street justice,” and they strike me as the kind of punk bitches that will cry about it when they get what they deserve.
4) What Is To Be Done With Tim Tebow?
I’m going to save all the arguments for you in the comments section. Here’s what you can’t argue with – dude is 3-1 as a starter this season. Discuss amongst yourselves.
5) The 49ers Are The New Team We Can Be Premature About
Up until now, this week’s win against the Giants is their signature accomplishment. Sorry, but I don’t buy them yet. I don’t buy Alex Smith as an “elite quarterback,” I don’t buy a banged up Frank Gore carrying this team, and I don’t buy Jim Harbaugh…yet. I may not buy Harbaugh as an NFL coach yet, but I’m starting to reach for my wallet.
If you want to see the cash come out, Jimbo, show me something when you play the Ravens in Baltimore, then host the Steelers.
I do buy the 49ers but I have to agree with you 1007% on the Detroit Lions thing. Cliff Avril is a dick, and he’s playing bully in what’s supposed to be a no bully zone. Am I wrong here or am I the only one who thinks that “meeting” that Ndo Suh had with NFL execs was total horseshit? It makes it just seem as if “hey so long as we stop by on our bye week to act like everything’s cool we can go on being manipulative pricks, right?”
And now look where the Lions are: Falling into that pool of mediocrity that Buffalo’s been keeping so nicely vaccumed for them.
Like I said, just look at the list of crap the Lions pulled in the fourth quarter of that blowout against the Bears…after they’d been called on the carpet…in the new “player safety-focused” NFL…Total BS.
Here’s one for you … Ohio teams don’t do well against teams with gold as a color … Bengals (Steelers), Browns (Rams), Bearcats (WVU), and Buckeyes (Purdue) all lost.
That is a good one! Didn’t catch that one at all!
Whoa that’s crazy.
Lions are killing me. Weak tatics! I’m so glad Boise lost, we can move on! TeBow I’m rooting for you! I truly feel with Niners D they will be in EVERY game bottom line!
Nice post JW!
The discount double take guy!?! Is he even a QB?!?
Am I the only one that thinks losing Javid Best had a profound influence on the Lions. Sure, Best doesn’t do a ton of running, but now they don’t even try to run, which would at least open up some passing lanes for Stafford…
You’re talking to a guy who has both Jahvid Best and Peyton Hillis on his fantasy team…
The Packers better look behind their shoulders because the 8-1 Niners are storming their way. Also, about Aaron Rodgers, here is a great quote I found about him “Aaron Rodgers does not have a right arm, he has a right heat-seeking missile launcher.”
Best and Hillis on fantasy team…damn…condolences. The 49ers…my head says no but the heart says yes…and they are full of heart.
I am totally resisting the “heart” “San Francisco” “Tony Bennett” joke.
And I’m resisting the San Francisco “HIV” joke.
And another thing…for everyone at ESPN and elsewhere who four weeks ago was talking how great Thanksgiving Day in Detroit would be between TWO undefeated teams…um…no.
I’ll agree that people should still be somewhat skeptical of the Niners, mostly because they don’t have an elite QB, who’s shortcomings aren’t a distant memory. That said I’m not sure that the games against flawed team’s like the Ravens and Steelers will bring us any closer to greater clarity about how good this team is. Then again how good is any team in this league right now?
I’m with Raven on San Fran.
I don’t know how they’re doing it, but they’re doing it.
Smoke and mirrors?
We’ll find out soon.
