We’re half-way through the 2013 NFL season and the one thing I think I know is that there are no great teams. There are good teams like the Seahawks, the Saints, the 49ers, the Broncos and the Chiefs but no great teams. The only other thing I know is that all you need these days is to get into the play-offs and then all bets are off.
This is the last year of the BCS system in college football. I HATE the BCS system because it’s unfair but I LOVE the BCS system because it gave us college football fans something to talk about every week.
Now that the baseball season is over it’s time to focus on the off-season. Lots of Orioles fans are firing up the old hot stove already, talking about making a run at trying to trade for soon-to-be Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer of Detroit or signing free agent hurler Matt Garza. I think you have a better chance of seeing Sidney Ponson start Opening Day than you do seeing the O’s drop big loot or trade away prized prospects for starting pitching.
No matter how the 2013 World Series ends, we’ve gotten our share of weird, crazy finishes. The kind that start with…”For the First Time in World Series History!!!!!”. What’s even crazier is that we’ve had two controversial calls so far in this World Series and the umps got it right both times. AMAZING!
Since Jerry Jones ran off everyone anyone good in his organization and started being the Czar of Dallas, the Cowboys have started a new tradition….finding ways to lose. Usually it’s either in the play-offs or in games that decide the division title. But I guess the Cowboys were practicing their December collapse in October, just to make sure they got it right.
Lots of fans and media types up in arms about Ravens head coach John Harbaugh calling for that onside kick last Sunday in Pittsburgh. Obviously everyone thinks it’s a bad call…Because it didn’t work! Why is Saints head coach Sean Peyton a genius for calling for that onside kick to start the second half in the Super Bowl a few years ago?…Because it worked!
We only got one lousy, stinkin’ Super Bowl championship out of you Peyton, big deal! Oh, that crazy Jimmy Irsay! It’s true, Jimmy is not your typical NFL owner. Jimmy tweets more than Justin Beiber and Miley Cyrus combined. But, to be fair….At least he isn’t his old man! How about all of that bellyaching he did last week about the Peyton Manning Era in Indy?
Alright, let me get this straight, medical folks have done lots of research and now they think that if football players who get hit in the head a lot they could have head injuries?
We don’t have Bryant McKinnie to kick around anymore…and the Ravens O-Line still had problems.
