Pro Bowl Weekend

 

Is there anything worse than this? The weekend before the SB? No for real… this might be one of the worst weekends in sports. I know we’ve got other things like basketball and college basketball, yadda fucking yadda, but that’s not the point. We just came off of 21 STRAIGHT weeks of relentless violence, touchdowns, drinking beer and Phil Simms pointing out blatantly obvious things and realizing he gets paid to do so and then SCCCCRRRRRRREEEEEEECHHHHHHHH, the brakes just get jammed on us. And to make matters worse a.) We know there’s more football, and in this case, great football, coming next weeknd with the super bowl but b.) They have to stick us with the option to watch probably the worst football game in the history of football or games.

I don’t hate the pro bowl, but watching a meaningless football game in Hawaii while I’m freezing my ass off in New Jersey waiting for the Giants to win another fucking SB while the Jets are busy wondering who to side with between a coddled, terrrible QB who makes to much money and a malcontent, voyeuristic, overrated receiver who makes to much money just… wait where was I? Oh yeah. Fuck this weekend.

Who is this girl?

So, Fifa Soccer by EA Sports has always been my favorite video game. Love soccer, and soccer for video games is just awesome. So for Fifa 11, they have this awesome ad starring Wayne Rooney and and various other footballers playing Fifa in this futuristic warehousey, video game playing place. Whatever, none of that is important. What is important is the absolute SMOKESHOW in the Real Madrid kit who is jumping around  all cocky like at 1:53. Look how fired up she is. Look at how hot she is. Somebody. Anybody. Find me this girl. 100 pieces of silver to whoever can complete this task.

Morning Juice

It’s 10/10/10. Spooky shit. Never trust something that looks like binary code, reminds me too much of the Matrix and shit. But anyways…

Chaos:

Come 3:30 yesterday, college football pretty much put its dick on the table and told everybody to admire its splendor. South Carolina welcomed Alabama into its home and then Marcus Lattimore locked the door as the Gamecocks knocked off the number one team in the land, 35-21.

The Squeeze Preseason Pick to win the National Champs must know about their nickname, because old LoLes Miles pulled out every trick in the book to pull a win out of his ass hat to shock Florida in the Swamp. 33, 29.

Michigan State used Denard Robinsons’s shoelaces as a garrote in Ann Arbor, derailing the miracle that was Michigan’s season. Seriously, Michigan got WHOOPED yesterday, 34-17 and the world rejoices for this.

Hahahahahahahaha:

The Yankees completed the sweep last night. Is anybody really shocked by this? I mean, its the Twins. The mutherfucking Twins! I know one thing that my daddy told me, do not trust a team with Carl Pavano as a major contributor. Fuck him, I hope he burns slow. Can the Yankees just avoid getting pitchers that used to play for the Marlins… please? But anyway, I digress. The old, overrated Yankees became the first team to advance, which clearly means they are the best… suck it MLB.

Finally here’s a little something to get you over because the Soon To Be Champs don’t play until tomorrow night:

It’s A Sporgy!!!

Big day in sports today. I had to fire up the Squeeze today was so good. God I fucking love October.

 

Jon Bon Jovi is all apout Sporgies

 

CFB: Minny @ Wisconsin, Mich State @ Michigan, Pitt @ Notre Dame, Alabama @ South Carolina, And The Squeeze pick to win the National Championship @ Florida. Yum.

Hockey: We’ve got two games in other countries (Phx-Bos, CBJ-SJ) , and a full slate of night games that includes the defending Stanley Cup Champion Blackhawks’ home opener. Giggity

Baseball: And lastly, the brooms are out in the AL. And they may get used at the clinching teams homes, which is cool, and weird, but still cool. The Rangers have the opportunity to “shock” the world and send the Tampa Bay Rays back to South Florida with their stingers in between their legs. After that, Phil Hughes and the Yankees do what they do almost every October: Humiliate people from Minnesota.

I am going to be belligerently drunk tonight. Happy Sporgy day Everyone!!!

Diva Personified: Brett Favre

Terrell Owens gets a lot of flak because he loves him some him. Randy Moss has recently gotten criticized because of his penchant for not giving 100% during games. A ton of players around the league get a ton of shit for not being good team players. But why the hell is Brett Favre getting a pass?

I like Favre. Always have. The guy is good at quarterbacking. Except for that and driving a tractor, I don’t think he is good at much else. The man was put on the planet to throw a football. He throws it fast, he throws it accurately. His receivers are better for playing with him.

For three years now, he has dominated the NFL offseason with his indecision about playing. He still hasn’t retired. He still hasn’t played a season of football. I’m okay with that. At his age and with the demands that football takes on your body, I don’t blame him for being hesitant about playing or wanting to avoid training camp.

What I do have a problem with are these reports about Favre being selfish with the play calling.   When he was with my favorite football team last year, there were stirrings about how Favre felt handcuffed in the offense. Even though the team had two very capable running backs and an offensive line built to run, the team still attempted more passes then runs. I don’t really trust Brian Schottenheimer as an offensive coordinator when it comes to game planning, so I’ll let that slide.

But now there is talk that Favre is being way too hands on with the offense. Audibling out of run plays and not being attentive to his head coach, Brad Childress. This is of course all after an embarrassing loss to a team knocked out of the playoffs, but lets look deeper.

At his current pace, Peterson will finish with 40 less carries than he did last year. But he has also never scored more touchdowns than he has this season. AD has also lost a career high 5 fumbles. Peterson is averaging 88 yards per game while putting up a career worst 4.4 yards a carry, both lows for his career. One of the biggest potential benefits of bringing Favre onto the team this season was forcing teams to spread out the defense to deal with both pass and run threats.

Let me break this down for you, and its completely crazy, but I can’t find other lines of reasoning that work. Peterson isn’t having a good year. The only stats that have improved are touchdowns, receptions and reception yards.  Meanwhile, Favre is on pace to finish the season with his lowest interception total and best passer rating in his career. The team has the best record since 2000.

Favre is a diva, but the team is in a lot better place now than they were several months  ago. They have finally tapped into the talent on the offensive side of the ball that isn’t named Peterson. Childress needs to accept that his team had a bad night in Carolina and ran into the buzzsaw that was Arizona weeks ago. If he rights the ship and wins next week, the team will have the 2 seed in the conference. When this team is playing for a right to go to the Super Bowl, and I believe they will, the media will be back to deepthroating Favre, believe it.
