Super Bowl Predicitons

Considering it’s Super Bowl week, our bloggers give their predictions for the big game.

I hope it’s an epic game but I just feel like it’s Peyton’s year and John Fox is such an underrated coach, plus I kind of hate Pete Carroll…I kind of like Denver, 23-13 — Walter M.

I’ve been undecided about this game for the whole week, and since I have to make a decision, I’m going Denver 27-24. I agree with Walter, it is Peyton’s year. It’ll be cool to see him win a Super Bowl in Eli’s city. I expect a great game though.– JStyles

Seattle bout that action boss. Seattle 24- Denver 20 — J. Pettis

I don’t know nothing about football.– PressStyles

John Fox Needs Surgery

Sad news to report, Denver Broncos head coach John Fox needs aortic heart valve replacement surgery this week. Fox who’s 58, was golfing Saturday afternoon when he complained about being dizzy and light headed. Fox was then rushed to a Charlotte hospital. According to USA Today Fox was told months ago by doctors that he’ll need defective aortic valve heart surgery following the 2013 season. Fox is expected to miss the next several weeks as he recovers from surgery. Broncos are on a bye this weekend, but they’re back in action next Sunday against the Chargers. Our thoughts and prayers are with John, and we wish him a speedy recovery.

5 Things We Learned From Week 8

Another week of the NFL have come and gone. Here are the 5 Things We Learned From This week.

1. Geno Smith, and the New York Jets are way too inconsistent to be taken serious. After defeating the Patriots in week 7, and Geno Smith probably having his best game of his young NFL career. Geno and the Jets followed that up, with their worst game of the year by getting embarrassed by the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday 49-9. Geno was awful going 20-30 for 159yds, 2 interceptions, and a QBR of 4.1. If they continue their up and down roller coaster like season, they should upset the Saints at home this Sunday.

2. Remember when the Eagles hired Chip Kelly this off-season and everyone had high expectations for their offense? Now eight games into the season Vick can’t stay healthy, leaving Sundays game after re-aggravating his hamstring. The backup to Vick is Nick Foles, who was also out with a concussion. So the Eagles turned to rookie quarterback Matt Barkley to step in. And it turns out that the Eagles offense isn’t who we thought they were.  Eagles gained a total of 200 yards on offense Sunday while losing to the Giants 15-7. Those 7points were scored on special teams. Eagles are 3-5 on the season, and haven’t won at home all year. The Giants have won two games in a row and are now 2-6 heading to their bye week.

3. When Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos spot you a 21-7 lead you’re suppose to take advantage of that. And the Washington Redskins didn’t, as the Broncos scored 38pts unanswered on Sunday to defeat the Redskins 45-21. Peyton started off slow turning the ball over 4xs, but bounced back to to throw for 354 yards and four touchdowns. Broncos have a bye this week, but face the undefeated Chiefs in week 10.

4. Don’t look now, but the Green Bay Packers finally have a consistent running game with rookie sensation Eddie Lacy. The Packers defeated the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday 44-31. Eddie Lacy carried the ball 29 times for 94 yards and a td. While Green Bays other running back James Starks chipped in with 7 carries for 57 yards and a td. The Packers now host the Bears this Monday night at home. The Bears need to be prepared for the Packers new two headed monster.

5. Calvin Johnson maybe the greatest wide receiver that has ever walked this planet. I always thought that Jerry Rice was the greatest WR I’d see in my lifetime, but now I’m second guessing myself. As Calvin Johnson torched the Cowboys DBs for 329 receiving yards and 1 touchdown. The catches he made were unbelievable as well as his stat line. Calvin came up eight yards short of being the first receiver in NFL history with the most receiving yards in a game. Matthew Stafford lead the Lions down the field in epic fashion as he lunged over the Cowboys defense at the 1 yard line with 12 seconds left to defeat the Cowboys 31-30.  This was easily the best Football game of the entire season so far.

Diddy Wants to Own A Football Team

https://i2.wp.com/www.nxgonline.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/diddy-naacp-image-awards1.jpg

Diddy has accomplished so many things in his life, and he looks like he has more plans to continue that trend. Fresh off launching his new TV Network Revolt, Diddy has already decided what his next goal is. Diddy wants to become the first African American majority owner in the NFL. While speaking with Bloomberg TV this week, Diddy expressed his interest in owning a Football team “I’m more of an owner type of guy. So I have aspirations to become — it will happen — to become the first African-American majority owner,” Diddy said. “Not having a small stake but actually owning an NFL team. I think it’s time for that. A majority of the players in the NFL are African-American but there are no African-American owners. So that’s one of my dreams.” I think it’s a great idea by Diddy. I like that Diddy and Jay-Z are getting money outside of the music industry. Jay-Z now has a sports agency, and we may see Diddy become a majority owner of a Football team. I’m always down to see someone make history, especially if it’s something that’s going to leave a impact on the world. Congrats to Diddy for launching his Revolt network this week, and good luck on his pursuit of owning a Football team. I’m sure it won’t be too long until he makes that happen.

5 Things We Learned From Week 7

Week 7 of the NFL was the week of the injuries, as Doug Martin, Jay Cutler, Nick Foles, Lance Briggs, Charles Tillman, Sam Bradford, and Reggie Wayne just to name a few. All left their games with injuries.

1. The Jets finally beat the Patriots to end their six game losing streak against the Pats, and the Pats also saw their 12 game winning streak against the AFC East come to a end by falling 30-27. Geno Smith went 17/33 for 233yards with a td, and 1 INT. He also ran for a touchdown. It was suppose to be a losing season for the Jets where they weren’t expected to win many games, and Rex Ryan was suppose to get fired. But after seven weeks the Jets sit at 4-3. The Pats are now at 5-2 for the season. Is Geno Smith really the long term answer in New York at qb? That’s something time will tell. Although the Patriots lost, I still say they win the AFC East. https://i1.wp.com/cdn3.sbnation.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/19239581/20130908_gav_ae5_418.0_standard_352.0.jpg

2. Break out the Panthers as they have won a season high 2 games in a row by defeating the Rams on Sunday 30-15. Cam Newton went 15/17 for 204 yards, and 1 touchdown. I’m believing in this Panthers front seven as they racked up 4 sacks against the Rams. Rams lost their QB Sam Bradford for the remainder of the year with a torn ACL. Looks like the Panthers season is going one way, and the Rams season is going in the complete opposite. https://i0.wp.com/www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/38a79a3f486f1ebff4ef130cb35772594a82b466/c=91-71-2811-2116&r=x404&c=534x401/local/-/media/USATODAY/USATODAY/2013/10/20/1382301879000-USP-NFL-St-Louis-Rams-at-Carolina-Panthers.jpg

3. We had a shootout in Detroit, as the Bengals offense out lasted the Lions offense…Thanks to the Bengals kicker Mike Nugent for kicking the game winner as time expired to win 27-24….This game had two of the best receivers in the NFL in Calvin Johnson, and AJ Green. An they didn’t disappoint.  Calvin Johnson went for 155 yards receiving to go along with 2 touchdowns. His most impressive touchdown was a 50 yard touchdown where he caught it in triple coverage. Yes this is a catch that you’ll only see in Madden. If you haven’t seen it, google it. AJ Green matched Calvin with 155 yards receiving, and added a touchdown of his own. The Bengals move to 5-2 on the season, as the Lions fall to 4-3. https://i2.wp.com/img.bleacherreport.net/img/images/photos/002/564/401/ScreenShot2013-10-20at12.47.20PM_crop_north.png

4. The 49ers dominated the Titans by defeating them 31-17. 49ers look like they’re using Colin Kaepernick the way they used him last year, and that’s putting the ball in his hand and letting him run. Kaepernick ran for 68 yards on 11 rushes. His longest run was for 20yards which he scored a touchdown on.  If the 9ers continue to use Kaepernick the way they did last year there’s going to be many defensive coordinators losing sleep on Saturday nights before facing off against Kaepernick. https://i2.wp.com/l.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/2y5LVItscBBB8unN2.Onrw--/YXBwaWQ9eW5ld3M7Zmk9ZmlsbDtoPTQyMTtweG9mZj01MDtweW9mZj0wO3E9NzU7dz03NDk-/http://media.zenfs.com/en_us/News/ap_webfeeds/743f55f46203c523400f6a706700510a.jpg

5. Last but not least we have the game of the week in which the Broncos took on the Colts. Yes, the game that’s been promoted all over television for the past several weeks has finally happened. Peyton Manning lead the 6-0 Broncos back to Indy to take on Andrew Luck and the Colts. Peyton scored the first td of the game, but after that it was the Andrew Luck show. As he ran for a touchdown and threw for three more to lead the Colts to the 39-33 upset. I’ll be honest, I was cheering for the Broncos due to Jim Irsay running his mouth all week. But the Broncos had a off night, and the Colts took advantage of that. The only negative for the Colts in this game, is that they lost Reggie Wayne for the season to a torn ACL. They need to find a way to replace his production for the remainder of the season. The Colts are now 5-2 on the year. I hope these two teams meet again in the playoffs.

Five Things We Learned From Week 6

Another Football week has come and gone. I have the Five Things We Learned from Week 6.

1. That Kansas City Chiefs defense is legit. I wasn’t too sure if I should believe the Chiefs hype, but I’m a true believer of their defense. Chiefs defense continued their dominance Sunday as they defeated the Raiders 24-7 to reach 6-0 on the year. The Chiefs sacked Terrelle Pryor 10 times. If the Chiefs get some contribution from players on offense not named Jamaal Charles, they should be in great shape.

2. We have a QB controversy in Philadelphia. Due Michael Vick hamstring injury which he suffered in last weeks game against the Giants. Nick Foles got the start Sunday, and he didn’t disappoint. As he went 22-31 for 296 yards with 3 TDs, and the Eagles defeated the Bucs 31-20. Let’s see if Foles continues his hot play this Sunday against the Cowboys, and if he does who will be the QB in Philly once Vick is healthy?

https://i0.wp.com/www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/1ca39fd6c051f28dd1abbd6babe9646627a0d629/c=0-0-3729-2808&r=x404&c=534x401/local/-/media/USATODAY/USATODAY/2013/10/13/1381696236000-USATSI-7491156.jpg

3.  The Texans lose 4 in a row. It’s shocking that this team lost 4 in a row, due to their high expectations coming into the season. But it’s even more shocking to see them get embarrassed at home like they did against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday by losing 38-13. To make matters worse, Schaub suffered a gruesome leg injury that Texans fans cheered about. I know it’s been a disappointing season for you Texans fans, but have some respect. I never like to see any athlete get injured. I wrote last week about staying with Schaub for the rest of the year, and then addressing the QB situation at the end of the year because I didn’t think TJ Yates or Case Keenum would make a difference. But due to the Schaubs injury Yates was forced into action, and he proved what I said last week was correct. Throwing two interceptions (one was taken back for a TD). There’s a dark cloud over Houston right now. I wish the Texans signed Matt Flynn, and let him be the starter while Schaub is out. That would be a great punishment for the fans that cheered for Schaubs injury on Sunday. But too bad the Bills signed him today.

4. Just because Tom Brady isn’t having the kind of year we’re accustomed to seeing, we can’t forget about how clutch the man is. But if you forgot, he reminded us on Sunday. As he lead the Patriots down the field in the closing seconds to defeat the New Orleans Saints 30-27. The Patriots are now 5-1 on the year, and look like the favorites to win the AFC East. Sorry to all the Patriot fans that left the game early, and didn’t witness Brady throw a TD with 5 seconds remaining to Kenbrell Thompkins.

5. Last but not least, I have to show some love to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Although they didn’t win, they didn’t allow the Broncos to cover the 27 pts they were given in Las Vegas betting lines. Instead the Broncos pulled away late to defeat the Jaguars 35-19. This will probably be my first, and last post about the Jaguars all year. So I had to make sure I made it a good one! And if you’re keeping score at home the Jaguars are 0-6. While the Broncos are 6-0.
