On Sunday night, after the conclusion of the AFC Championship game, “#NFLRigged” was trending on Twitter. Tens of thousands of tweets were sent out decrying the perceived rigging of the game between the Chiefs and Bengals. I’ll admit, there were some questionable calls in that game. I’m not going to list them all here because… Read More Is the #NFLRigged?
Before I talk about the Super Bowl teams, I want to talk about the teams that lost this weekend. The 49ers and the Bengals were both fatally flawed teams, and that’s why they lost. The Bengals fatal flaw was obviously their lack of an offensive line. I know they had 3 starters down to injury,… Read More It Will Be Eagles vs. Chiefs in the Super Bowl | The Bengals Need an Offensive Line and the 49ers Need Tom Brady
LeBron goes for 41-8-9 on 50% shooting, and was a +1 while he was on the floor in 44 minutes, and the Lakers still lose because the refs are clearly and obviously determined to rig games against them. What the hell is this? This is a clear and obvious foul. Joel Embiid is getting this… Read More NBA Refs Are a Joke
NFC Championship Game: 49ers at Eagles I’m pretty convinced the Eagles are going to win this game. My opinion of San Fran went down quite a bit after watching them play the Cowboys. Yes, they won the game obviously, but they showed some serious offensive limitations. And for most of that game, the Cowboys looked… Read More Conference Championship Weekend Predictions
I want to start this post off with a question: does making a change at head coach in the middle of a string of playoff appearances ever work out for teams that do it? That is to say, if you’re a team like the Bills, and you’ve been knocking on the door for a while… Read More Will the Bills Fire Sean McDermott?
This team is hanging on by a thread, barely treading water. They just completed an improbable win over the Grizzlies, who are in first in the West and were winners of 11 straight games coming into Friday night. On Sunday, the Lakers completed a highly improbable comeback win over the Blazers, who are neck-and-neck with… Read More The Lakers Made a Trade!!!
I promised you Divisional Round INSANITY but we saw nothing of the sort. These games were pretty orderly and ho-hum when you compare them to last year’s games. I thought for sure the Bills-Bengals game would be off the chain, but it was a beatdown. Then I figured the Dallas-San Fran game would have a… Read More Divisional Round Reactions: Rather Tame, All Things Considered
Before we get into the Divisional Round INSANITY sure to ensue (you’ll know why I’m using that term shortly), I want to just go over a few of the storylines that are dominating NFL talk this week. The 49ers’ Rest Advantage: San Fran vs. Seattle was the first game of wild card weekend, taking place… Read More Divisional Round Insanity Predictions and Hot Takes, and More
Last night against the Rockets, the Lakers needed every bit of LeBron’s 48 points to secure the 140-132 win. The Rockets are a 10-34 basketball team. LeBron was a +19 and the Lakers won the game by 8. So they were outscored by 11 when he was on the bench. He was on the bench… Read More The Lakers (and the REFS) Continue to Fail LeBron James
I was lucky enough to be in attendance for the Jags vs. Chargers game, so I didn’t really watch much of the 49ers vs. Seahawks game. I saw the first half, the start of the second half, and then we listened to the rest of the game on the way to the stadium in Jacksonville,… Read More Wild Card Round Reactions: Chargers, WHAT HAPPENEDUH?
