Title: 2007 NFL Season begins August 5!!! WOO HOO!!
Post by: RVR II on July 21, 2007, 07:05:32 PM
OK!
I know theirs some Die-Hard NFL Fans here (and some not-so-die hard fans as well, but fans none the less) here on the forum, and I propose a game of sorts if the 'Powers that be' approve of it...

I propose each member that wishes to participate, pick a team.
Since the pre-season is approx. 4 weeks long (from Thursday, August 5, 2007, to Friday, August 31, 2007) that gives each member a chance to switch their team to another if they so chose, BUT; when the 'Official NFL Season' gets underway; Thursday, September 6, 2007 the team you have chosen is yours for The Duration of the 2007 season.

We may need someone to keep track of the stats throughout the season, or through http://www.nfl.com/scores

Who ever picked the winning team that makes it All The Way to Super Bowl 41, AND Wins It, gets a Free Rifftrax!

Suggestions & Feedback is Welcome!

There's only 32 teams, right?

What if more than 32 people want to participate?

I would want to take my Dolphins.  What if someone else wants them too?  If by some chance the Dolphins do win, would we both get a Rifftrax?

That would be where the powers that be would decide if that would be allowed..
I think being once a year, and the chances of a large multiple pay-out of sorts is nill, it could work

Well, like I said, I'll take a chance on my Dolphins.

Who knows?  Maybe they'll be good this year.

Or maybe all the other teams will screw up so bad, they'll win by default....    :)

I'm torn between my home town team; the Buffalo Bills, and my team next door; the Carolina Panthers.

More than likely, I'll pull for the Panthers all season long. (Dibs on the Carolina Panthers!)
Hell, San Diego came so close last year, and my panthers, whom were favored to go all the way, were only 8-8.

so, Again, I think if their are multiple wins is a shot in the dark at best

Dips on the patriots. I don't follow the game really but I seem to recall they're quite good. They also the ones who play in the general geographic area of the fictional team in my signature.

Plus if I choose the Lions I may as well throw in the towel right now.

First preseaon game coming soon and the Rams have not mailed out their season tickets yet.    Hives are starting to form......

Thank goodness for DirecTV and the Sunday ticket.   ALL the NFL games!    Now I can see the Rams play on the road as they are not televised in Houston that often


Super blurry photo of my name (Bob) and my dog's name (Shadow) on the wall of names for the original season ticket holders of the STL Rams.   I wonder how many other animal names are up there?    I looked, and nothing really jumped out at me.    Sadly, no Hitlers or Stalins bought PSLs.

"Michael Vick ordered to stay out of training camp
 
By DAVE GOLDBERG, AP Football Writer

AP - Jul 23, 8:03 pm EDT

NEW YORK (AP) -- Michael Vick was ordered by commissioner Roger Goodell on Monday to stay away from the Atlanta Falcons' training camp until the league reviews the dogfighting charges against him.

"While it is for the criminal justice system to determine your guilt or innocence, it is my responsibility as commissioner of the National Football League to determine whether your conduct, even if not criminal, nonetheless violated league policies, including the Personal Conduct Policy," Goodell said in a letter to the quarterback. "

Wait a minute, I thought he was related to Dan Harrington who won the World Series of Poker a few years back.   I dont think he is related to Joey, is he.
Title: Re: 2007 NFL Season begins August 5!!! WOO HOO!!
Post by: Tripe on July 23, 2007, 07:28:19 PM
Yeah, he is, apparently all the talent went to Joey's cousin (or cousins if the poker player is also related).

Or perhaps Joey thinks the ball is a golf ball and the other side is the hole. He can't understand why people are mad, he consistently gets hole's in one  ;D

Well, it appears we are all correct!

"Dan Harrington is cousin to both golfer Padraig Harrington and professional football player Joey Harrington."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Harrington (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Harrington)

Dan is one hell of a poker player by the way.    Too bad Joey did not get any of his genes.

I don't think Harrington did all that badly here in Miami.

I mean, I saw lot of times he hit the recievers in the numbers and the schmucks couldn't hang on to it.  I mean, does he have to catch the passes too?

Did a hell of a lot better than Culpepper - and the doctor's said Culpepper was healed.

BTW, on Yahoo Sports there's a video of Michael Irwin with some kind of advice for Vick and Pacman....

Isn't that the "blind leading the blind"?

Short of finding a coach like Jimmy Johnson who'll find a way to cover up for you....what the hell?

Well, somehow that eluded the scouts and doctors for the Dolphins....because they said to take Culpepper over that guy who nearly won it all for the Saints.

But then, our scouts and doctors didn't see that lineman who went nuts and cut his own throat coming either....    ::)

EDIT:  Oh....and once upon a time our scouts went to the University of Florida to decide if the Dolphins should take Emmett Smith or Sammie Smith....   :grr:

To drag this thread back on-topic (yes, I'm a spoilsport, deal with it), I'll take a flyer and put my chips on the Jets.  If Mangini is still a Man-Genius, and if Pennington stays healthy, they have a legitimate shot.  They'd have to get past the Patriots and Colts, but hey, so does everyone else.

Of course, I remember what happened during the NFL playoffs when I started backing the Devils here ... not only did they bomb out, but the Cup went to the Anaheim Ducks.  The Ducks!?!?!

Anyway, the Jets are my pick.  The smart money will now be heading to Vegas to bet that they go 7-9.

No so that's up for grabs people.

Also, some fan of the Chargers, go to their Wikipedia page and post a better file of their logo. I would, but I don't want to ;D

I like that it's pretty evenly distributed between the AFC and NFC (couldn't remember which teams went were before looking for the logos) so far.

Sounds interesting..
I Still havent't heard back from the Admins on their approval/disapproval of this one.
We Probably need some input from the higher-ups on that.

There were some others but they were a little graphic about the kinds of things that happen to these dogs.  I didn't want anyone to come across them unknowingly.   :(

Meanwhile, I haven't heard the exact amount of time he's going to get for pleading out.  Heard on the radio that he was offered 18 months to 2 years (I think) but he lawyers are trying to get that to under a year.

Problem is, no matter what it probably won't be served in the "general population"....

THAT would be justice!  I don't think celebrity would trump mistreating animals with those guys.  Be nice to think he was getting his ass kicked on a daily basis for this.

No Kidding!! What A MORON!!
The Things that make you go..HMM...

That's the problem with egos like that - and what they've seen celebrities get away with in the past.

They believe that it will never come out.  That they can have all the good stuff and still be the scum of the earth and people will look the other way.
  Anyone remember Brian Blades (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Blades), for instance?

Man.. I remember that 'Brian Blades' fiasco..

What a lot of the histories of that Brian Blades thing don't mention was that the father of Judge "Let'm Go" LaBow was a huge University of Miami booster.  And in fact, Blades and his brother (who I think was also charged with something in that - destroying evidence, I think) "worked" for Dear Old Dad while they were students to make some "extra money".

I was here when that whole thing went down and it was just one of many things that lead to the saying "You can't spell 'scum' without  UM"

Yup, it is too easy if you have only 8 teams and injuries and lack of football knowledge is not a factor.   Plus, it makes trading a near must.   

Item 10 still gives me the shudders.

WOO HOO!!! I'm Ready for some Grill'n Now for the 2007 NFL Season!!
My Parents and I have a tradition every couple of years that they buy a new grill, and I would get their hand-me-down, or old grill to replace the one I got from them prior..
Well Today, I went to go pick up what I thought was there new grill to take out to their house on Lake Wylie, SC and had planned to load up their old one to take home; But after loading up the new one and tieing it down in my truck, they said "Well, Enjoy your New Grill!"
I looked at them and said "HUH.. What are you talking about??" and they told me again that it was actually for me, and that they planned on keeping theirs they bought last year (which is a nice one as well) for the next couple of years or longer!
My birthday was 2 1/2 months ago, my wife's is not until October, so this caught me by complete surprise to say the least!
Well, enough talking about it, here it is..

My, that IS a nice looking grill.   Kind of brings a tear to my eyes.   

You should go down to amazon.com and look up "Steven Raichlen".   He has some pretty good grilling books.    He has some pretty outstanding recipes and you can usually find his books in the grilling section of any sporting goods store too.

Although, after seeing your lawn, perhaps you should also get this book too   :D

I think that a better idea for a game is a Suicide Pool.  Picking a team and waiting until the super bowl seems way too long, and there's realistically 4-6 teams that have a chance of making it. 

I assume most people know how to do one of these.  You just pick one team to win each week, if they win, you keep going.  The only catch is, you can only pick each team once, so you can't pick the chargers every week.  Sounds a lot easier than it is.

Got to say I'm not at all interested in the Survivor Pool thing. I'm a British Emigre and Football has a tangential interest to me so this one started by RVR was much more interesting than constantly picking different teams each and every week. Where's the fun  in that? I mean you pick one team and follow them through the season at least you have the satisfaction of seeing "your" team doing well or ill.

It does seem a little well rude to RVR but hey not my forum.

Anyway, you're thread was a good place to discuss football, but this survivor game seems a bit more organized.

No offense is intended to anyone.  Usually how it works is that we offer prizes for contests that we actually.  Everyone is always welcome to sponsor a contest like Chris did with Mafia, or as Tarantulas did a while back, you don't need our approval to do that.

The survival pool is fun because there is excitement every week, and actually some strategy involved.  Sorry it happened at the last minute, I just remember when a friend invited me to one last night.

The survival pool is fun because there is excitement every week, and actually some strategy involved.  Sorry it happened at the last minute, I just remember when a friend invited me to one last night.

OK... So..Did you not receive any of my personal messages I sent to you about this thread for the past few weeks or what??

Approval IS need if a Free RiffTrax is involved!!
Some of us 'Die Hard' fans have our 'set' teams and don't like to pick random teams on a weekly basis, and you can't keep your 'set' team there Correct?!

Sorry, the only PM that I got from you was last week.  I must have read it and forgotten about it.  Sorry about that.

I don't read every thread on the forum, and did not read this one beforehand.  In the future, any contests you want to have don't have to be "sanctioned" by us.  When people organize their own contests, they buy the winners a gift certificate.  They don't even have to tell us what's going on.

Heading to STL in 13 hours to see the Rams on opening day.   RVR, I hope the Panthers go 15-1.   The "1" being the loss this weekend to the Rams.   I think we will both be happy with 15-1, right?

Saturday:   Casino in STL to play poker.   At night, meet the rest of the family for STL style pizza and beer.
Sunday:      The pure and virtuous Rams beating the baby and puppy hating Panthers (lol).   Also, drinking beer and eating brats pre game at the St. Pat's Church.    See, they sell beer and brats before the game, so it is okay!

Heh. As the Broncos arrived back in town, some of the local media asked Elam if he was concerned that they might run out of time before they got that last kick off. He replied, "No. We knew exactly how much time we had left since the Bills' crowd was helpfully shouting out how much time was left." Whoops.

And Duck? I haven't heard anything definite but according to the Denver play by play guys, the fact that they actually pulled an amulance into the stadium to cart him off is officically "A really bad sign." Best of luck to the player and his family.

Buffalo's Everett Has Neck Surgery
There Is Concern He May Not Walk Again

Associated Press
Monday, September 10, 2007; Page E09

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y., Sept. 9 -- Buffalo Bills reserve tight end Kevin Everett had surgery Sunday after injuring his spine on a kickoff against the Denver Broncos, and there is concern about whether he will be able to walk again.

"He's had some sparse movement," Everett's agent, Brian Overstreet, told the Associated Press in a phone interview late Sunday.
 
"The next couple of days is going to be critical," said Overstreet, responding to a question about paralysis. "Our concern is for him to come out of this healthy and, hopefully, be able to walk again."

Let's hope he does okay.   :'(

Bills' Everett under sedation after serious neck injury
 
By JOHN WAWROW, AP Sports Writer

AP - Sep 10, 11:14 am EDT
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Bills reserve tight end Kevin Everett will spend one to two days under sedation as doctors evaluate the extent of a severe spinal injury that could leave him paralyzed.

Everett is in the intensive care unit at Buffalo's Millard Fillmore Gates Hospital after a four-hour operation performed hours after he was hurt in a season-opening loss to Denver, Eric Armstead, a partner of the player's agent Brian Overstreet, told The Associated Press on Monday.

"He'll be sedated for the next 24 to 48 hours and we won't know more until then," Armstead said. "We were told by the doctors that the surgery went well."

Everett's family members, including mother Patricia Dugas, were to arrive in Buffalo on Monday from their Houston home, Armstead said

And then the Buffalo News article says he was on a respirator?

God, this sucks!

The teams of the NFL must abide by certain rules set forth by the NFL.  Defenses rely on signals from the coach rather than helmet radios.  Recording the signals would give the Patriots an unfair advantage the next time they played the Jets.  It's not "smart" its against the rules.  The Patriots could have picks in next year's draft taken away.

That's kind of a silly argument.

The NFL has specifically told the teams to not use recording devices aimed at the other team.  If they can read their lips to see their signals, then fine.

I don't see it as "out thinking" at all, I see it as going against the wishes of the NFL, period.

According to a report from Buffalo TV station WIVB-TV, injured Bills tight end Kevin Everett has voluntary movement of his arms and legs.

WIVB medical reporter Dr. Peter Ostrow says the voluntary movement shows dramatic improvement over the prognosis Everett was given Monday, when orthopedic surgeon Dr. Andrew Cappuccino called Everett's spinal-cord injury suffered in Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos "catastrophic" and life-threatening.
At the time, Cappuccino said Everett's chances of regaining a full range of body motion were not very likely.

But according to the WIVB report, Cappuccino is much more optimistic Tuesday evening.

Everett suffered a fracture and dislocation of his spinal cord in the neck area during a game Sunday night against the Denver Broncos. Watching it on television from home was Dr. W. Dalton Dietrich, scientific director for the Miami Project, a spinal cord program affiliated with the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.

The program is among several in the United States that has led research into moderate hypothermia, or cooling the body a few degrees to try to limit swelling, inflammation and the cascade of events and chemicals that cause further damage after an initial neurological injury.

Dietrich sent an urgent e-mail to fellow neurosurgeon Dr. Barth Green, who knows Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson.

Who did what next is unclear, but doctors say Everett received the experimental cooling therapy in the ambulance, even before X-rays and other tests could show the extent of his injury and the treatment he would need.

Cool....literally!

That Miami Project (http://www.themiamiproject.org/x787.xml) is part of the work being done by former Dolphin Nick Buoniconti since his son was paralized by a football injury.

I mean as much as it sucked that that had to happen to his son and what happened to Christopher Reeve, so much has come out of their work since then to make progress in the treatment of spinal injuries.

Fines total $750K for Patriots, Belichick 
Associated Press, Updated 6 minutes ago   STORY TOOLS:                         
 
NEW YORK - Bill Belichick is ready for his close-up.

The Patriots' coach escaped suspension for using a video camera to spy on opposing coaches, with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell deciding instead on Thursday night to fine him $500,000 and dock the team $250,000 and a first-day draft pick next year.
It was the biggest fine ever for a coach and the first time in NFL history a first-round draft pick has been confiscated as a penalty. But Belichick will be on the sideline Sunday night, as planned, when the Patriots play the San Diego Chargers.

Belichick was peppered with questions on the scandal Friday morning, when he seemed bemused by the repeated attempts to get him to expand on his earlier statement in which he accepted "full responsibility for the actions" that led to the ruling.

"It's over, and we're moving on," the coach said. "All my energy and focus and attention is on the San Diego Chargers and that game."


 Spy games 
 
Czar: Belichick is Mr. Unpopular
Kriegel: Dirty tricks
Czar: Everyone does it
 
 
Belichick did allow that he would change the team's videotaping procedures. Patriots video assistant Matt Estrella, whose camera was confiscated while he was on the Jets' sideline, will not be on the sideline.

Goodell found the Patriots guilty of using videotape to try to steal the New York Jets' signals during Sunday's game. He ordered New England to surrender next year's first-round draft choice if it reaches the playoffs, and second- and third-round picks if it doesn't.

"I specifically considered whether to impose a suspension on Coach Belichick," Goodell wrote in a letter to the team. "I have determined not to do so, largely because I believe that the discipline I am imposing of a maximum fine and forfeiture of a first-round draft choice, or multiple draft choices, is in fact more significant and long-lasting, and therefore more effective, than a suspension."

Both the NFL and Belichick stressed that the camera was seized before the end of the first quarter and had no impact on the game, which the Patriots won 38-14.

"This episode represents a calculated and deliberate attempt to avoid longstanding rules designed to encourage fair play and promote honest competition on the playing field," Goodell wrote.

The NFL statement said Goodell believed owner Robert Kraft was unaware of Belichick's actions. But the commissioner penalized the club because of Belichick's "substantial control over all aspects of New England's football operations."

"His actions and decisions are properly attributed to the club," Goodell said.

Reached at his home, Kraft declined to comment.

In a statement issued two hours after the punishment was announced, Belichick said he misinterpreted the league's rules but acknowledged that "part of my job as head coach is to ensure that our football operations are conducted in compliance of the league rules and all accepted interpretations of them."

"I accept full responsibility for the actions that led to tonight's ruling," the statement said. "Once again, I apologize to the Kraft family and every person directly or indirectly associated with the New England Patriots for the embarrassment, distraction and penalty my mistake caused. I also apologize to Patriots fans and would like to thank them for their support during the past few days and throughout my career."

The Jets said they "support the commissioner and his findings."

New England has been accused of illegal videotaping before, but the team was caught on Sunday when a camera was confiscated from Estrella while he was on the Jets' sideline during the game at Giants Stadium.

NFL rules state, in part: "no video recording devices of any kind are permitted to be in use in the coaches' booth, on the field, or in the locker room during the game." That was re-emphasized in a memo sent Sept. 6 to NFL head coaches and general managers in which the league said: "Videotaping of any type, including but not limited to taping of an opponent's offensive or defensive signals, is prohibited on the sidelines, in the coaches' booth, in the locker room, or at any other locations accessible to club staff members during the game."

Belichick is the first head coach to land on Goodell's crowded docket, but the commissioner has made good conduct the hallmark of his administration.

He banned Tennessee cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones for the entire season after repeated run-ins with police. Atlanta quarterback Michael Vick was suspended indefinitely while he faces a likely jail term for his role in a dogfighting ring.

And the Broncos pull it out at the last moment for the second week in a row. 2-0. 

Now, if they can just play well for the entire game, instead of slacking off for a quarter, like they did today. Ugh. It's like Reeves is coaching the team again.

Well, game two against the 49ers was an improvement...... the Rams just owned the game but made too many dumb mistakes (e.g. Holt making a 20 yard catch, then getting stripped of the ball and the ball rolls out of end zone for touchback, fumbling a FAIR CATCH on a punt with 5 minutes to go and a chance to ice the game).    My seats are parrell to the end zone and Wilkins kick looked long enough and I started to get ready to celebrate........... but alas, his 55 yarder was just short.

Anyway, how bout them Texans, Lions......

No, he did not play, but merely having him on the sideline (with his cute oiled and curled hair) is enough to doom you.

DirecTV lets you (if you have the superfan option for NFL sunday ticket) watch any game you want on your computer real time.    They use slingbox for this.    Apparently, they are also going to let you do that on their other sports packages too.

I tested this last week by having my dad logon as me on one PC, and a friend logon as me on his laptop.    They allow for multiple logins as I guess you could have multiple PCs at home.     Now I can watch 5 games at once!    All I need is the neon sign and I got me a sports bar!

Wow, it just keeps getting better and better for my Rams........

 :gouge:

Things just keep getting worse for the injury-riddled Rams. On Monday, coach Scott Linehan not only confirmed that guard Mark Setterstrom will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn knee ligament in Sunday’s 24-3 loss at Tampa Bay, he disclosed that running back Steven Jackson will miss this Sunday’s game at Dallas.

Jackson, the NFL leader in yards from scrimmage last year, suffered what Linehan described as a "partial tear" of a groin muscle in the fourth quarter. Jackson is definitely out for the Cowboys game and will be "week-to-week" thereafter, Linehan said.

Rookie Brian Leonard, the team’s second-round draft pick, will take over as the first-team running back. Veteran Travis Minor moves into the backup role that Leonard had been filling."

Nice looking food there........... getting hungry.     Maybe I will have the grill fired up for our upcoming golive weekends at work.   Might as well bbq when things are blowing up.

And I see that Carr is the starter for the rest of the year.   Well, maybe he learned something in the offseason.    I'm pulling for the Panthers now!

I DID feel sorry for all those Buffalo fans at the game.    I mean, they won 99.99% of the game.

You know....they didn't give up and Lemmon did put together some pretty good drives.  And the fact that they put Brady back in says something about what the Pats thought of the Dolphins chances of doing something, eh?

Unfortunately...for some reason...the Dolphins defense think that this is "Bump Football".  You just have to bump into someone and they'll fall down for you.   ::)

Hmm there was an NHL game in London recently too.

I knew a girl who's brother played for the London Monarchs. Really, unless it's a recent thing, it was never that big.

Is the NFL Actually picking up a 'Fan Base' overseas yet??

Is the NFL ever going to try to do something about the fact that the Dolphins don't have much of a fan base in South Floride?

Not just because they suck lately.

For a good twenty years people move to this area and absolutely refuse to give up the team they followed where they were living.  The same games immediately sell out of the Dolphins schedule ever year.  The Jets, the Giants, the Bills - because of the outsiders, the Patriots since they started winning so much for the Band Wagon Jumpers and the Raiders for the wannabe "Gangstas".

Think the Dolphins have a hard time getting set mentally for a game with the freakin' seats filled with the colors of the other teams...knowing that these are locals?   No wonder Jason Taylor ripped down that sign a few games back.

Edit:  Just watched the London game....if they hadn't gone into this with no wins that wouldn't have been a bad loss.  That frozen rope Lemon threw at the end there was a thing of beauty.  Frankly, the kicker screwed us.  He hits that field goal or was smarter about that online kick we would have been in it.

Of course, as we speak they're probably trying to sign that guy who ran out onto the field....

Nice to see all those Dolphins jerseys in the stands.   ;D

Well.. As if there was any doubt.. The Panthers had their 'Asses' handed to them, But I Still enjoyed going to the game.
This was my 1st game in about 3 years, and this will probably be my last for this season, so I thought I'd take a few pics from the game with my Powerful Canon PowerShot Pro 1, 8.1 Mega Pixel digital camera.

My seat was located in Section 517 Row 25 Seat 3; in other words, my nose is Still Bleeding! So keep this in mind when viewing these pics because I was Nowhere Close to field level!

Enjoy!

Welcome to Bank of America Stadium: Charlotte, NC.!

The Battle of the Last 2 Undefeated teams are at hand:
The Colts & The Patriots
I Think as dominating as Both Teams are, The Patriots will probably 'Roll' through the Colts as they've done every team they've played so far this season.

The Panthers won't have Testaverde as he's still injured from the Colts game last week so Carr will start against the Titans.. :speechless:

..And I Won't get to see any games cause I'll be working, doing an 'on-sight' service of my business in Columbia, SC all day long :'(

If there's a sports station in your area that wouldn't broadcast that game, they need to just hang their heads in shame, turn the transmitter off and go home never to return.

And unfortunately I can't suggest that you look for a station to stream the audio on the internet because the NFL won't allow that - even if that audio is being played on the radio in your own town.

I get a lousy AM radio signal where I live and I like to listen to the Dolphin Station (WQAM) announcers while I watch the game on TV over their announcers (because even when the Dolphins are doing well the TV announcers are biased against them).  But the NFL makes them cut off their audio stream during the game.

You can only listen to games on the NFL website for a price.  Because, god knows the NFL isn't making enough money.   ::)   :grr:

Hi.  I'm a Vikings fan.

(hangs self)

At least you know you have a good running back.     

No - the fact that this team has a lot of talent that's being wasted makes it feel considerably WORSE.  The fact of the matter is, the Vikings are going to have to clean house in their front office and coaching staff and start over AGAIN if they hope to improve within the next decade.  This means that the past two years (FIVE if you count Mike Tice's tenure) have been a complete waste.  At least other teams have been going somewhere.  The Vikings have been going nowhere - not forward, or backward - just nowhere.

The worst part is that if the Vikings don't turn themselves into a legitimate playoff team, they're probably going to move to L.A. due to a lack of support for a new stadium.  And they're NOT going to progress with that douchetard (whose name I refuse to even speak or write) and his toadies running the show (and his moustache calling the plays).  Some fans (including Josh, a purple demon who hisses and whispers at me at night) use this fact to try and run a guilt trip on the justifiably disgruntled faithful!  What should I feel guilty for!?  For demanding accountability and results from these bozos!?  What is this, the Bush administration!?

Surprise because it's the Eagles....or because we win?  Because, remember, we've been in almost every game this year....we just can't finish the job.
 
Quote
..And my Bills play the.. Patriots?!  :speechless:

I'll love whatever team it is that beats the Patriots this year.  Even the Bills....(sorry, just threw up in my mouth a little bit at the thought).

It's not because the Patriots would be undoing the Dolphins' "Perfect Season".....even though I'd like to see that stand.

I'm just really sick of seeing them win week after week.   It's making them seem infailable.  And their being infailable takes all of the drama out of it.  It becomes boring.

And before someone says "Well, wasn't the Dolphins' 17-0 season the same?".....   If you go and look up that year (http://football.about.com/cs/teamsdolphins/a/bl_1972dolphins.htm) you'll see that not all the outcomes were as certain as most of these Patriot games have been.  Bob Griese was injured halfway though and some of those games were won with the backup QB.  Mandich catching that pass at the last minute of the last game.  Then there was Garo Yepremian's attempt to forward pass during the SuperBowl.    Drama.

Former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick turned himself in to U.S. Marshals Monday to begin serving time on his sentence to be handed out in December for a dogfighting conspiracy charge.

Vick was transported from the U.S. Courthouse in downtown Richmond, Va., to a regional facility.

Vick and his associates pleaded guilty over the summer to a federal dogfighting conspiracy charge. The pro-football player was suspended by the NFL and scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 10. He faces up to five years in prison.

Vick's rural house that was a focus of the dogfighting case was recently sold by the fallen NFL player to a developer.

The developer planned to hold an open house of the Surrey County, Va., property before auctioning it off, according to The Virginian-Pilot, citing realtor Kyle Hause Jr., who has been involved in the deal.

Sad.

At least the first game should be good.    Those of us in St. louis will enjoy watching Mike Martz lead the Detroit offense.    Too bad he does not have a Warner or a Bulger to lead it.

He was running an illegal gambling outfit - on top of the fact that it was gambling on dogs and then killing the losers.  Even Pete Rose was never accused of running betting on anything....and he's dead to baseball.

Think the Commish is afraid if he speaks in absolutes that Vick will play the Race Card?

From the Associated Press:
Quote
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Washington Redskins star safety Sean Taylor was in critical condition Monday after he was shot during what police are investigating as a possible armed robbery at his home.

The 24-year-old player was in the intensive care unit following several hours of surgery at Jackson Memorial Hospital, said family friend Richard Sharpstein, his former lawyer. He remained unconscious early Monday evening.

Taylor lost a "significant" amount of blood because the bullet damaged his femoral artery, and doctors are worried about blood flow to the brain, added Sharpstein, who was at the hospital with the player's family and friends.

Taylor has had several problems on and off the field, including an incident two years ago in which he was accused of brandishing a gun.

The shooting came eight days after another invasion was reported at his home. According to police records, someone pried open a front window, rifled through his drawers and left a kitchen knife on a bed.

Officers were sent to Taylor's home at about 1:45 a.m. Monday after his girlfriend called 911 and said he was shot in his lower body, Miami-Dade Police Lt. Nancy Perez said. Taylor had missed the last two games because of a knee injury and was at home recuperating. He was airlifted to the hospital.

Investigators were still interviewing the girlfriend and other relatives in the home, Perez said. No arrests have been made.

"It could have been a possible burglary; it could have been a possible robbery," Perez said. "It has not been confirmed as yet."

Sharpstein said Taylor's girlfriend told him the couple was awakened by loud noises, and Taylor grabbed a machete he keeps in the bedroom for protection. Someone then broke through the bedroom door and fired two shots, one missing and one hitting Taylor, the lawyer said.

"It was clearly a burglary, an armed burglary," Sharpstein said, adding nothing appeared to have been stolen.

The shooting happened at the pale yellow house Taylor bought two years ago in the Miami suburb of Palmetto Bay. Taylor is in his fourth season with the Redskins after playing at the University of Miami, where he was an All-American in 2003. Despite his injury, he is tied for the NFC lead with five interceptions.

Redskins owner Dan Snyder arrived in Miami on his private plane with running back Clinton Portis, vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato and trainer Bubba Tyer.

Taylor called Coach Joe Gibbs on Nov. 19 to let the coach know he'd miss that morning's regular team meeting because he was in Florida dealing with the first break-in, which happened Nov. 17.

"He said, 'Coach, somebody broke into my home yesterday and I came down here to straighten everything out."' Gibbs recounted. "I said, 'I understand that.' I said, 'Take care of your house and everything you have to there."'

Taylor was at the team's headquarters this Saturday to get his knee treated, Gibbs said, adding that he wasn't aware the player then returned to Florida.

A group of Taylor's fans planned a two-hour vigil Monday evening outside the front gate at Redskins Park. Meanwhile, Redskins safety Pierson Prioleau fought to keep his composure.

"This is not just a member of the Washington Redskins," said Prioleau, one of a few players made available to reporters. "But we're talking about a dad, a brother, a friend of ours, and that's where we're at with this right now."

Gibbs was joined by the team chaplain at the Redskins' usual Monday meeting. A small group of players held a separate prayer gathering.

The Redskins (5-6) lost 19-13 at Tampa on Sunday. Taylor did not travel with the team to the game because of his injury. Taylor sprained a ligament in his right knee in the second half of the Nov. 11 loss to Philadelphia. He was expected to miss at least two games.

Known as one of the NFL's hardest hitters, Taylor played in his first Pro Bowl last season, where he drew attention by leveling the other team's punter in what is usually a well-mannered exhibition game. Even though he has missed two games, his five interceptions remained tied for most in the NFC.

Taylor has been in trouble numerous times since he was drafted as the No. 5 overall pick in 2004. He has been fined at least seven times during his professional career for late hits and other infractions, including a $17,000 penalty for spitting in the face of Tampa Bay running back Michael Pittman during a playoff game in January 2006. He also was fined $25,000 for skipping a mandatory rookie symposium shortly after he was drafted.

Redskins coaches and players have defended Taylor, saying he was smart and misunderstood. Taylor has been slow to let anyone in his inner circle. He has rarely spoken to reporters, saying he does not trust them. Teammates said he became more mature over the last year after he became a father for the first time.

In 2005, Taylor was accused of brandishing a gun at a man and repeatedly hitting him during a fight that broke out after Taylor and some friends went looking for the people who had allegedly stolen his all-terrain vehicles.

Taylor reached a deal with prosecutors last year after they agreed to drop felony charges against him. He pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors in the assault case and was sentenced to 18 months probation. The pleas prompted another fine from the NFL but kept his football career intact.

He also was ordered to talk about the importance of education at 10 Miami schools and had to contribute $1,000 for scholarships to each of those schools.

The man Taylor allegedly hit, Ryan Hill, sued, seeking at least $15,000 in damages. Hill sustained bruises to his body, incurred medical expenses and lost wages because of the fight, the lawsuit said.

UPDATE:
Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor dies.

Quote
Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor died early Tuesday, a day after he was shot at home by what police say was an intruder. He was 24.

Family friend Richard Sharpstein said Taylor's father told him the news around 5:30 a.m.
"His father called and said he was with Christ and he cried and thanked me," said Sharpstein, Taylor's former lawyer. "It's a tremendously sad and unnecessary event. He was a wonderful, humble, talented young man, and had a huge life in front of him. Obviously God had other plans."

He said Taylor died early Tuesday at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, where he had been airlifted after the shooting early Monday.

Doctors had been encouraged late Monday when Taylor squeezed a nurse's hand, according to Vinny Cerrato, the Redskins' vice president of football operations. But Sharpstein said he was told Taylor never regained consciousness after being transported to the hospital and that he wasn't sure how he had squeezed the nurse's hand.

"Maybe he was trying to say goodbye or something," Sharpstein said.

Taylor was shot early Monday in the upper leg, damaging an artery and causing significant blood loss.

"According to a preliminary investigation, it appears that the victim was shot inside the home by an intruder," Miami-Dade County police said in a statement.

But police were still investigating the attack, which came just eight days after an intruder was reported at Taylor's home. Officers were dispatched about 1:45 a.m. Monday after Taylor's girlfriend called 911.

Sharpstein said Taylor's girlfriend told him the couple was awakened by loud noises, and Taylor grabbed a machete he keeps in the bedroom for protection. Someone then broke through the bedroom door and fired two shots, one missing and one hitting Taylor, Sharpstein said. Taylor's 1-year-old daughter, Jackie, was also in the house, but neither she nor Taylor's girlfriend were injured.

Police found signs of forced entry, but have not determined if they were caused Monday, or the previous burglary.

The shooting happened in the pale yellow house he bought two years ago in the Miami suburb of Palmetto Bay. Eight days before the attack someone pried open a front window, rifled through drawers and left a kitchen knife on a bed at Taylor's home, according to police.

"They're really sifting through that incident and today's incident," Miami-Dade Detective Mario Rachid said, "to see if there's any correlation."

Born April 1, 1983, Taylor starred as a running back and defensive back at Gulliver Preparatory School in Miami. His father, Pedro Taylor, is police chief of Florida City.

A private man with a small inner circle, Taylor rarely granted interviews. But, behind the scenes, Taylor was described as personable and smart - an emerging locker room leader.

Especially since the birth of his daughter.

"From the first day I met him, from then to now, it's just like night and day," Redskins receiver James Thrash said. "He's really got his head on his shoulders and has been doing really well as far as just being a man. It's been awesome to see that growth."

An All-American at the University of Miami, Taylor was drafted by the Redskins as the fifth overall selection in 2004. Coach Joe Gibbs called it "one of the most researched things" he'd ever done, but the problems soon began. Taylor fired his agent, then skipped part of the NFL's mandatory rookie symposium, drawing a $25,000 fine. Driving home late from a party during the season, he was pulled over and charged with drunken driving. The case was dismissed in court, but by then it had become a months-long distraction for the team.

Taylor also was fined at least seven times for late hits, uniform violations and other infractions over his first three seasons, including a $17,000 penalty for spitting in the face of Tampa Bay running back Michael Pittman during a playoff game in January 2006.

Meanwhile, Taylor endured a yearlong legal battle after he was accused in 2005 of brandishing a gun at a man during a fight over allegedly stolen all-terrain vehicles near Taylor's home. He eventually pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors and was sentenced to 18 months' probation.

Taylor said the end of the assault case was like "a gray cloud" being lifted. It was also around the time that Jackie was born, and teammates noticed a change.

"It's hard to expect a man to grow up overnight," said Redskins teammate and close friend Clinton Portis, who also played with Taylor at the University of Miami. "But ever since he had his child, it was like a new Sean, and everybody around here knew it. He was always smiling, always happy, always talking about his child."

On the field, Taylor's play was often erratic. Assistant coach Gregg Williams frequently called Taylor the best athlete he'd ever coached, but nearly every big play was mitigated by a blown assignment. Taylor led the NFL in missed tackles in 2006 yet made the Pro Bowl because of his reputation as one of the hardest hitters in the league.

This year, however, Taylor was allowed to play a true free safety position, using his speed and power to chase down passes and crush would-be receivers. His five interceptions tie for the league lead in the NFC, even though he missed the last two games because of a sprained knee.

"I just take this job very seriously," Taylor said in a rare group interview during training camp. "It's almost like, you play a kid's game for a king's ransom. And if you don't take it serious enough, eventually one day you're going to say, 'Oh, I could have done this, I could have done that.'

"So I just say, 'I'm healthy right now, I'm going into my fourth year, and why not do the best that I can?' And that's whatever it is, whether it's eating right or training myself right, whether it's studying harder, whatever I can do to better myself."

His hard work was well-noted.

"He loved football. He felt like that's what he was made to do," Gibbs said. "And I think what I've noticed over the last year and a half ... is he matured. I think his baby had a huge impact on him. There was a real growing up in his life."

A 'Messy' Monday Night Football! Dolphins - 0 @ Steelers - 3

(http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b4/robotrix/Smileys/thsuicide.gif)

With all due respect, PSCD, phooey.  That was one of the most enjoyable games I've ever seen.  It did require going into it with the right attitude, to wit, that a game played in such slop was bound to be a low-scoring slugfest, with the weather and field conditions basically a third team on the field.  And that third team won.

Highlights:

* The two times that the Dolphins went for it on fourth and more than ten yards.  Both times, they were in that twilight zone where a field goal won't be good, but a punt will probably find the end zone, but still, more than ten yards?  The really wacky part was, the second time they did it came after a field-goal attempt which was blocked ... but negated on a delay of game penalty.  The 'Phins could have kicked again from about 42 yards, but decided to go for the first down.  Mystifying, and rather hilarious. (As I said, you needed to be in the right mood.)

* Miami punting from deep in its territory. (This happened a lot.)  The ball falls to the ground around midfield -- and sticks!  It buried itself in the muddy turf, point-first, and did not bounce!  I don't think I've ever seen that before, and I was laughing like a loon until the commercial.

* The tension over whether either team would ever manage to score!  Never in NFL history has a game gone to overtime tied 0-0.  This one almost did, and there's something compelling about a chance to witness history.

* The final score.  Fascinating trivial fact:  the Dolphins have played (and lost) eleven games this year.  Six of those losses have been by exactly three points.  You cannot make this stuff up.

The right attitude, PSCD.  That's all you needed with this game.

Do that and every game will end up Pay-Per-View.

I had the NFL Channel briefly during a three-month trial period on digital cable.  Most of the time it is bor-ing.  The same thing you can get on ESPN or HBO's "Inside the NFL".

And they replay old games....some just slightly important games leading to playoffs that you might not remember - and in the description of what's on they tell you who won.

Probably won't be long before they start showing movies.....

Bills' Kevin Everett walking on his own in and out of rehab
 
By JOHN WAWROW, AP Sports Writer
December 7, 2007

Kevin Everett is walking on his own at a Houston rehab center, the latest significant progress by the Buffalo Bills tight end in his remarkable recovery from a serious spinal cord injury.

"He doesn't have a full natural stride but, yeah, he's walking," a person close to the family told The Associated Press on Friday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of Everett's status.
 
The person said Everett has been walking under his own power since his release from Memorial Hermann/TIRR three weeks ago and is now an outpatient there. The person added Everett is picked up at his Houston-area home by car to attend daily rehab sessions and is able to walk to and from the facility.

"He's not driving or anything like that, but he is walking. He's not running. He is walking," the person said.

Doctors initially feared he'd never walk again after what was described as a life-threatening injury while making a tackle in the Sept. 9 season opener against Denver. Everett was paralyzed from the neck down when he arrived at Buffalo's Millard Fillmore Gates Hospital and spent the first few days on life support.

The prognosis was far more positive a few days later when Everett showed movement in his legs and arms and was sensitive to touch. He improved so steadily during his first two weeks he was transferred to Houston for the next stage of rehab.

Everett makes his offseason home there, and doctors felt it important for him to be close to family and friends.

Bills punter Brian Moorman learned after practice that Everett was walking.

"Any time we hear about something along those lines, it gives you chills," he said. "We're always thinking about him, and we're thrilled any time we hear about any progress. ... It's obviously a good sign. We hope to see him personally sometime soon."

Everett hasn't spoken publicly except through news releases and in a videotaped statement that was broadcast before Buffalo's home game against New England on Nov. 18.

"How are you doing Buffalo? This is Kevin Everett," Everett said, during the brief message that was shown on TV and the Ralph Wilson Stadium video scoreboard. "I just want to say, `Come on, let's beat the Patriots."'

Upon his release from Memorial Hermann, Everett said in a statement he was inspired after meeting many people that sustained similar injuries.

"Their courage and determination inspired me to fight every day for recovery of my ability to walk," Everett said. "While this news is a significant milestone for me, I still have a long journey to full recovery."

Everett's recovery has been the NFL's most inspirational story this season. And his presence has not been forgotten among Bills fans, with many wearing his jersey or T-shirts with his No. 85 on the back to home games.

The Bills' third-round draft pick in 2005, Everett is soft-spoken and reserved and regarded highly by teammates and friends.

"He's just every guy's teammate," Moorman had said after Everett was hurt. "He's got such a great character, and it's obvious. He's not a man of many words, but he doesn't need to speak by words."

Everett had been active in his hometown of Port Arthur, Texas. Last summer, he hosted a football camp in which he charged no admission, handed out T-shirts and made sure every youngster had a ride to and from camp.

"He'd give you his last," said Kenny Harrison, who coached Everett in high school. "His biggest deal was making sure every kid that wanted to be a part the camp was able to be a part of it, no exception."

Last I saw, the Redskins were wiping the floor with the Vikings.

The Dolphins shut out the Patriots completely in the second half, intercepted Brady at least three times and scored one touchdown (that the referees would let them have)...unfortunately the Patriots had scored something like 28 points in the first half so....

The Browns stunk the joint out against the Bengals.

And Kevin Everett (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=ap-bills-everett&prov=ap&type=lgns) walked into the Bills locker room before their game....   ;D

I know that's not everything but it's all I know at the moment.  Sorry.

Dammit.  I wish the Vikings hadn't won those five games.  Now it just amounts to a crappier draft pick.

I think the way Tarvaris Jackson played in the second half shows that it isn't his fault.  The Purps were outplayed.  Most of all, they were outcoached.  The TEAM came out flat in the first half, and that's just unacceptable when you're fighting for the playoffs.  This one is on the coaching staff.

A shame I wasn't around when this started, picking my Redskins wouldn't look so insane now. If it wasn't for losing a good dozen key players to injury and the whole Sean Taylor tragedy, we'd be a lot better than 8-7 and trying to slip into the playoffs.

Congratulations to the Redskins.  They showed the whole country that they clearly were the superior team.

Still, I wish my Vikings would have won......but then again, they never do seem to show up when it counts the most.  Being a Vikings fan is kind of like having your testicles crushed by a world-famous underwear model.  When she reaches down toward your crotch, it gives you hope for something you had only dreamed of previously.  Then your dreams are crushed in the most painful way possible.

Vinny Testaverde - #16 Quarterback - 6'5" - 235lbs
News: Testaverde (achilles) said he will retire following Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, according to the Associated Press.
Impact: It's for certain that the will to play is still there for Testaverde, but his body simply broke down after 21 seasons of NFL service. While he's been picked out of the free agent pool for the past few seasons, Carolina looks to be the final stop of Testaverde's special career.

From Fox Sports:

Ravens fire Billick after disappointing season
Despite his insistence that his job was safe, the Brian Billick era in Baltimore is over.

The team fired its head coach Monday, capping an extremely disappointing 5-11 season.

The firing comes a day after FOX Sports reported that the players and other employees informed team owner Steve Biscotti that Billick had completely lost the locker room and could not win them back.

Players were told of the dismissal as they packed up their lockers at the team's practice facility.

Billick won the 2001 Super Bowl in his second season with the Ravens, and led the team to a franchise-best 13-3 record in 2006. But Baltimore lost a team-record nine consecutive games this season before ending the skid Sunday with a 27-21 win over Pittsburgh.

"This is the reality of our business," cornerback Samari Rolle said.

Billick was hired as an offensive guru but during his tenure it was his defenses that won for the Ravens, especially their Super Bowl title. Over time Billick was unable to get his QBs to star and his offenses stalled year in and year out.

Earlier this year he proclaimed that he had been given the vote of confidence from Biscotti but that was never confirmed and was obviously not true.

Billick's nine seasons with Baltimore was tied for third with Philadelphia's Andy Reid as the third-longest current run with the same team. He took the Ravens to the playoffs in 2000, 2001, 2003 and 2006, but Baltimore won only one postseason game since its Super Bowl run after the 2000 season.

"Sometimes the message can get repetitive after a while," 12-year offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden said.

Ogden said this month that Billick had informed the team he would be returning in 2008. But owner Steve Biscotti evidently changed his mind.

The Ravens expected to compete for a title this season after bringing back almost every starter from last year's AFC North champions. But injuries and a turnover-prone offense contributed to a complete collapse after a 4-2 start, and Baltimore finished last in the division.

"This year the injury bug not only hit us, (it) hit our prime-time players," linebacker Bart Scott said.

Billick, 53, was hired as Baltimore's second head coach in January 1999, succeeding Ted Marchibroda. In Billick's first season, the Ravens reached .500 (8-8) for the first time. Then he led Baltimore to a 12-4 record and a berth in the Super Bowl, where the Ravens beat the New York Giants 34-7.

Billick was 80-64 as Baltimore's coach. He was the offensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings before coming to the Ravens.

"I'm not saying I agree with it," kicker Matt Stover said of Billick's dismissal, "but sometimes things have to change."

Mueller fired as Dolphins' GM
Bill Parcells' shakeup of the Miami Dolphins began Monday with the firing of general manager Randy Mueller.

Assistant director of player personnel Mike Baugh and college scouting coordinator Rick Thompson also departed.

Also at risk of being fired was coach Cam Cameron, who said he would discuss his future with Parcells this week. On Sunday, the Dolphins became only the eighth team to finish 1-15.

Parcells began work Thursday as executive vice president of football operations.

Mueller was the Dolphins' general manager for three seasons but was in charge of personnel decisions only since coach Nick Saban left a year ago.

Mueller received mixed reviews for his moves in 2007, which included the acquisition of free-agent linebacker Joey Porter and the selection of receiver Ted Ginn Jr. and quarterback John Beck in the draft.

Mueller was general manager of the New Orleans Saints in 2000-01.

Getting rid of any and all of the people who scout players for the Dolphins is necessary immediately....

Seems like every decision they've made since I can remember - starting with passing on Emmet Smith for Sammy Smith - has been awful.

And yet, the Rams are KEEPING their head coach after Torry Holt (the most mild manner superstar in the NFL) had this to say:


"Yeah, I would say he has the confidence of the offense," Holt said. "That's all we got. We don't have nothing else. That's who we have to work with on a day-to-day basis. I would say he has the confidence of the guys.

"Now is it overflowing confidence? I don't know. But I think guys have some confidence in him and some respect for coach."


Wow, I have heard nicer things said about Ted Bundy.   Oh well, with the number two pick in the NFL draft  next April, things have got to get better in 2008

I am SOOOOOOO torn by this Seahawk/Redskins game.

After my Dolphins, I have a soft-spot in my head for the Seahawks.  I've always loved watching them when I can.

But you'd love to see the Redskins make it to the SuperBowl after what's happened this year.

Looks now like the Hawks are advancing....

Got to see Most of the games down here..

Saw both games yesterday but had to check out at 1pm CST today from our hotel room in Acapulco to travel by bus back to my wife's town, so I missed a lot of the Giants/Bucs game, but saw most of the Chargers/Titans game upon my return.

I'll catch the rest of the playoffs in the comfort of my own home  :highfive:

Looks like Vick can add making little rocks out of big rocks to his resume..

From the Associated Press
Quote
Vick transferred to Leavenworth
Updated: January 7, 2008, 7:11 PM EST 487 comments RSS digg blog email print RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Michael Vick left Virginia on Monday to enter a drug treatment program at a Kansas prison, a move that could reduce the former NFL star's 23-month sentence on a federal dogfighting conviction.
 
The suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback is now at the U.S. Bureau of Prisons minimum security facility in Leavenworth, his attorney, Billy Martin, said.

"Mr. Vick hopes to participate in programs offered at that facility, including the Bureau of Prisons drug treatment program," Martin said in a statement.

Vick tested positive for marijuana in September while he was on supervised release following his guilty plea. The residential drug treatment programs at Bureau of Prisons institutions take place in units set apart from the general prison population, lasting at least 500 hours over six to 12 months, according to Bureau of Prisons policy.

Upon successful completion of the program, nonviolent offenders may be granted up to one year of early release. Staff members review the inmates' records and behavior to determine if they are eligible for early release.

If Vick was granted early release, he could be ready to play in the 2009 football season, though he is currently suspended without pay by the NFL.

"Mr. Vick looks forward to being reunited with his family upon completion of his sentence," Martin said. "He is hopeful that following his release he will have the opportunity to resume his career as a professional football player."

Vick was accompanied by U.S. marshals when he left the Northern Neck Regional Jail on Monday morning, said Maj. Ted Hull of the Warsaw, Va., jail.

Vick and three co-defendants raised pit bulls and trained them for fighting behind the property he owned in rural Surry County. Several dogs that did not perform well in test fights were executed.

The 27-year-old player pleaded guilty in August, admitting he bankrolled the dogfighting operation and helped kill six to eight dogs. He had been held at the Warsaw jail since he surrendered Nov. 19 in anticipation of his sentence.

Vick lost all his lucrative endorsement deals and still must contend with additional legal woes: He and co-defendants Purnell Peace, Quanis Phillips and Tony Taylor are facing state animal cruelty charges in Surry County. Vick's trial is set for April 2.

Getting off drugs is something Vick should want to do anyway.  What does it have to do with him killing dogs and profiting off their suffering?

If his getting clean brings one of those dogs back to life, then I'm all for taking time off his sentence.

Until then, he can rot.

Heck, if we are looking for a Patriot to get hurt, it has to Rodney Harrison.   That is the dirtiest player I have seen.   Just watch him, he dives at knees, dives in piles late, cheap shots galore.

I'll get Tivo when it's the same price as a VCR circa 1992 (in today's dollars).  Hell, I'd even settle for the price of, say, a cheap DVD player.  I'm predicting at least four or five years before the price drops to a sane level.

The same applies to iPods/MP3 players.  When they're as cheap as portable CD players, I'll get one.  Until then, I'm not spending a metric fuckton of dough on a hard drive with speakers on it.

And PLEASE don't respond with "Oh, well, it's worth it."  Not to me, it isn't.  I'm somewhat strange in that I don't look for "convenience" in my audio players.  I already have devices that can play music when I'm at home (computer/stereo), in the car (radio/car CD player), and riding the bus (portable radio / CD player).  What the hell would I need a Zune or an iPod for?  The roughly 4 minutes a day when I'm walking between those places?

And I don't mind not being able to choose my own songs (particularly not when I'm driving, since I can't do that anyway).  I like to be pleasantly surprised every once in a while.  I'm also perfectly fine with a couple minutes of ads every once in a while.

After all, I have 100 extra dollars to throw around and YOU don't.

Well, my "Tivo" is the DirecTV brand and they upgraded my reciever to a HD-DVR Receiver for free.    DirecTV charges me $6 a month for their service, so if I skip one lunch a month, I have paid for it.   I dont think I would actually break down and buy a separate stand alone service.

Also, I LIKE having the land line in the house.    When the power goes out (something of a consideration in Houston) or if the weather knocks out cell service, it is nice to have a working phone.   Sure came in handy during Hurricane Rita.   I guess for me, having the land line is part of my "Jerico meets Cloverfield meets The Day After" disaster survival plan!

I have an iPod that I use at the airport (a life saver!) and I plug into either the Bose sounddock or the home theater system to listen to my CDs and other downloaded songs.   And...... it is my prefered method to listen to Rifftrax while watching the movie.    So this is as important to me as my cell phone.   

Yet, strangly enough, I do not own a watch.

Now, back on topic.

I would LOVE to see the banged up Chargers beat the Pats, but I fear that the hoodie has his team all ready to run out and smash the Chargers.

I think the Giants will upset the Pack.    Call it karma for how poorly they treated Vince Lambardi after he got cancer.

Anybody else ran into the punter like that it would have been an automatic first down....but the Pats did it so they just get to kick it again.

I'm so sick of this.

And if this just sounds like a "sour grapes" Dolphins fan...wait until I do the rest of my research about the difference between the NFL now and in 1972.

And I'm happy for the kicker.  Didn't want him going home with everyone thinking he lost the game all by himself.

Since I think the fix has been in for the Pats anyway, I don't know what to think of the Giants chances.  But, I think no one gave them a chance tonight...except one guy on the Fox pre-game show....can't remember now who that was.  Let's hope they get a fair shot in the Superbowl....

The Giants are only the 2nd wild card team in history to make it all the way to the super bowl, and a different Manning will be in it this time.

If it wasn't for the Patriots domination, and the Chargers fluke win last week, Both Mannings could've faced each other in the Super Bowl.
This scenario is Not too far off in the future I think..

Well I think you're making light of a team that works really hard.  I'm not saying it  just because I'm a New Englander, but because they earned everything they got.  They play in freezing conditions all the time, including ice, snow and hail, they study film of their opponents for 3 weeks prior to each match-up, they are loyal to each other... I mean, they are a great bunch of guys.

Randy Moss was thrown to... I dunno 2 that whole game?  I mean, he's their big receiver but they are good enough where they don't have to rely on just a passing or running game.   Tom Brady took a HUGE pay cut so he could keep his team together.

On a side note, that Sporles? (sp?) is FAST!  Man, he's tiny too!  haha, comparitively..

It is a day of mourning here in Wisconsin.  Everyone at work is walking around with slumped shoulders.

The Pack we saw last night was not the dominating force we saw the week before.  Harris just couldn't guard Buress, and Eli was putting the ball exactly where he needed to.  Favre was off the whole night, for the most part his passes were off-target.  Kudos to the Giants, they were the better team last night.  As good as the Giants looked though, I just don't see the Pats losing, they're too good.

Nodoby is giving the Giants a prayer in the Super Bowl.

No, no, that's good.  I'm just thinking about the last time a dominant team went into a Super Bowl massively favored against a lightly regarded squad from New York (whom the experts considered inferior to other teams that it got past to reach the Big One), led by a fourth-year quarterback who had shown flashes of brilliance, but was considered too erratic and unseasoned to get the job done against such a juggernaut.

Now all Eli Manning has to do is guarantee a win, and the Giants are set.

  • Human growth hormones (which weren't discovered until 1981)

...and probably lots of other things that keep the wear and tear on the members of the Patriots down...  I don't even think they could get photographs of the last play on the sidelines immediately after then as they can now....

And it STILL took 36 years for anyone to get close to that record.

Sorry...I'm not impressed.

::) Please.  The '72 Dolphins went undefeated by virtue of a gooey soft schedule.  They weren't even FAVORED to win the Super Bowl.  Not to take anything away from the Dolphins, but they weren't dominant like these Patriots are (who, technically, have to deal with the fact that the other teams in the league have the benefits that you listed as well).

Hell, the '85 Bears were a better team than the '72 Dolphins.

Nodoby is giving the Giants a prayer in the Super Bowl.

No, no, that's good.  I'm just thinking about the last time a dominant team went into a Super Bowl massively favored against a lightly regarded squad from New York (whom the experts considered inferior to other teams that it got past to reach the Big One), led by a fourth-year quarterback who had shown flashes of brilliance, but was considered too erratic and unseasoned to get the job done against such a juggernaut.

Now all Eli Manning has to do is guarantee a win, and the Giants are set.

Just keeping a record of that for the up comming game ;)

Fine by me.  Just remember that, if Eli doesn't deliver the guarantee, I'm off the hook. ;-)

I am not saying the Giants are any kind of lock, just that dismissing their chances out of hand is unwise.  The Patriots were dominant early in the season, but have been much less so in later games.  They are not immortal; they are not invulnerable.

What the Giants need to continue doing is avoiding turnovers.  They had a bad takeaway/giveaway ratio during the regular season, but have been nearly perfect in that regard during the playoffs, which has let them win games they could have, maybe even should have, lost.  If they cough up the ball more than once in the Super Bowl, they're doomed.  If they're turnover-free, and take the ball from the Pats a couple times, they have a very serious shot.

Okay, enough serious analysis from me.

They do have a shot.

Unfortunately for the Giants, they're playing on a fast field in ideal conditions, which is a big plus for the Patriots.

If they can get some turnovers early, they should easily beat the spread.

Here is to the Giants beating the horrible "human" being known as Bill Belechik and his dirty late hitting team.   I honestly hope that Rodney Harrison takes out one of his own guys during one of his many dirty plays.  

Anyway, back to more pleasant topics.    The rain seems to have missed Houston, it is in the mid-70s and prime grilling time.   Guests should start arriving in a couple of hours.

Menu:
Chicken Quesidillas (got all the ingrediants ready and just need to load up the paninni press.
Various dips and chips
Steaks marinating (using RVR II's marinade)
Johnsonville Spicy Brats (the best thing known to man)
Fried rice (decided since the steaks would be kind of asian/hawaiin, this would be a good starch.   got everything all cooked - rice-bacon-onion-, just need to put it together).
Beer, beer, beer and white russian dacquoris

I hope to remember who won.

Oh yeah, Belicheck is a jerk.


From the New York Post:

FRAUD UNDER THE HOOD
BEFORE BRADY, BELICHICK WAS JUST A CLOWN AS HEAD COACH
By BART HUBBUCH
February 3, 2008 -- GLENDALE, Ariz. - One could argue that Bill Belichick owes everything to Mo Lewis.
After all, if the Jets outside linebacker hadn't almost killed Patriots quarterback Drew Bledsoe - literally - with that brutal hit seven years ago, Belichick could very well be some team's defensive coordinator today.
If Bledsoe's internal injuries didn't let Tom Brady step in and unveil his stunning mastery, does the Belichick of 2008 have the three Super Bowl rings, the genius reputation or the first-class ticket to Canton already punched?
Belichick's history - from his bizarre coaching antics in Cleveland to his loathsome behavior off the field to, above all, his coaching record before Brady's arrival - suggests "definitely not."
The sporting public that is so enamored with Belichick as he prepares to lead the 18-0 Patriots against the Giants here today in Super Bowl XLII seems to forget just how bad he was as a head coach before the incomparable Brady became his lottery ticket.
Bad, as in 36-44 (with just one playoff appearance) over five mostly miserable seasons as coach of the Art Modell Browns in the early 1990s.
Bad, as in 5-13 with the Patriots (including a 0-2 start to his second season in 2002) until Lewis' hit on Bledsoe forced him to go with Brady.
So bad, in fact, that enraged Browns fans made death threats after he unceremoniously cut local legend Bernie Kosar in 1993, stayed away in droves (the team had blackouts in its lone playoff season under Belichick) and reviles him to this day.
Belichick's reputation as a head coach was at such an ebb - and his (lack of) personality such a fan turn-off - that Modell had no choice but to fire him upon moving to Baltimore in 1996. Not after the Baltimore Sun wrote repeatedly that there was no way Modell could bring him to Baltimore, even though Belichick grew up in nearby Annapolis, Md.
And with good reason. Belichick seemed to lose his mind that final year in Cleveland, both before and after the controversial move to Maryland was revealed in midseason.
Just a selection of Belichick head-scratchers from that dreadful 5-11 campaign (which somehow included two losses to Tom Coughlin's expansion Jaguars):
* Became so enraged when the Jets drafted tight end Kyle Brady one spot before the Browns that he threw a phone against the wall. He then shipped his pick to the 49ers in a fit of pique so he could reach for linebacker Craig Powell - a horrible bust - later in the first round.
* Benched hand-picked starter Vinny Testaverde for rookie Eric Zeier less than three weeks after Testaverde won AFC Offensive Player of the Month honors. Belichick then stayed with the overmatched Zeier through three consecutive ugly losses that doomed the Browns' hopes.
* Demanded that Modell sign bad-boy receiver Andre Rison to a $17 million deal that nearly forced Modell to go bankrupt scrounging for the $5 million signing bonus and was a total disaster on the field.
* Baffled even his own players by calling a timeout with two seconds left so Matt Stover could kick a meaningless field goal at the gun in a 31-13 loss at San Diego.
* Engaged in a running feud - during the game - with Vikings receiver Cris Carter the week after the Chargers game. Belichick's profane rants reportedly were got so vile that Carter, a devout Christian, had to be restrained from attacking him.
Compared with that, dressing like a hooded homeless man during games or quitting the Jets five years later after just one day as coach by scribbling "I resign as HC of the NYJ" on a slip of paper seem tame.
No wonder a Browns executive during those days summed up Belichick by pointing to his childhood and saying: "I would love to know what happened in that household to produce a human being like that."
Belichick was hated in Cleveland above all for the Kosar debacle, which torpedoed the Browns' 1993 season after he cut Kosar in favor of the immortal Todd Philcox. It also came back to haunt Belichick when Kosar signed with the Cowboys and helped them win Super Bowl that year by subbing for the injured Troy Aikman in the NFC title game.
This is how much Cleveland seethed at Belichick: One local radio show for more than a year began each show by proclaiming it "Day of the Bill Belichick occupation."
Modell still isn't on speaking terms with Belichick.
"He's just a weird, thoroughly unlikable guy, and no amount of rings is going to change that," another former Browns executive said this week.
Of course, that puts Modell in good company among people once very close to Belichick - see: Mangini, Eric - who now wouldn't be caught dead in the same room with him.
As if the "Spygate" cheating scandal wasn't detestable enough, even Belichick's personal life is unseemly. Just ask Vincent Shenocca, the New Jersey man who claimed in 2006 that Belichick ruined his marriage by carrying on a long affair with his wife, former Giants secretary Sharon Shenocca, that included hefty cash payments from Belichick to his mistress.
A settlement kept more of the salacious details from coming out, but it couldn't hide the fact that the since-divorced Belichick allegedly stepped out for years on his own wife and three children.
This is behavior befitting the next Vince Lombardi?
Belichick's detractors around the league, and there are more than you might think, are eager to see how his newfound coaching legend will fare once Brady is gone.
For the sake of his suddenly sterling reputation on the field, Belichick better hope another Mo Lewis never comes along.

I didn't think it was boring.  Even the first 3 quarters.  Of course, I was laughing every time Brady got hit.  I watched the majority of the Pats games this year, hoping to see them lose at least one.  This was great.  I was surprised Eli got the MVP since the defensive line won that game for them.  But I guess I understand the QB getting it.  And that throw to Tyvee(sp.?)  was an awesome play.

Post by: Johnny@theFair on February 03, 2008, 09:37:53 PM
That game was far from boring.

I thought it was one of the better Superbowls in a while.  At least there was a bit of drama, wondering how many times Brady was going to be slammed to the ground before he stood up and threw a meaningful pass... and wondering if Eli was actually a Superbowl caliber quarterback (which he solidified in my mind that he was).... and wondering if the Pats defense could put any pressure on Eli, and then when they did he pulled something out of his a$$ that was pretty spectacular.

I'm very far from a Giants fan, and even farther from a Pats fan, but I'd have to give that superbowl a thumbs up.

Some random disjointed thoughts:

1. I think this settles it - a perfect season is something that will never happen in today's NFL.  The '72 Dolphins were able to do it, but that was with a soft, gushy schedule and less strict rules regarding coverage.  They weren't even FAVORED to win the Super Bowl, so they didn't really have to deal with the pressure of being undefeated because nobody thought they would do it.  The Dolphins did it under very special circumstances, and it won't happen again.

2. I don't harbor the seething, over-the-top hatred for the Patriots that some people do, but I was cheering for the Giants because I like a good upset.  However, it wouldn't have made me angry if the Pats had won, mainly because it would mean Randy Moss would finally have a ring.  (As a Vikings fan, I'm still pissed off about how he was run out of town by a bunch of media blowhards and then traded for 24 cents worth of beads and Troy "Iron Hands" Williamson).

3. The Giants winning the Super Bowl makes me feel a lot better about my Vikings.  Looking at their personnel and coaching philosophy, they look very similar.  The main difference is that the Giants actually have a pass rush.  (None of the Vikings' defensive ends got more than five sacks this year - and this was with the Williamses in the middle drawing constant double teams!  Absolutely inexcusable!)

Any-friggin'-crap, the Giants won because they were able to stop the run and (more importantly) disrupt the pass.  They got just enough done on offense to take advantage of their stellar defensive play.  Kudos to the Giants for a well-played game.

4. I like pie.

5. What in the name of Gilbert Godfried was Bill Belicheck thinking going for it on fourth down?  If there's one thing all my hours of playing Madden have taught me, it's that you HAVE TO TAKE THE POINTS.  You don't pass up a chance for three points on 4th and 13.  Perhaps this wouldn't have been such a big deal if the Patriots hadn't lost BY A FIELD GOAL.  IN THE GODDAMN SUPER BOWL.  Way to go, Dunce Lame-bardi. ::)

6. Especially pecan pie.  Pecan pie is my favorite.

There was a lot of discussion on overnight radio about Belacheck's lack of adjustments at half time and why he didn't make any?  I think he started to believe his own hype and thought they had survived the giants best shot and would role in the second half.  I thought throughout the season that the Patriots would be better off if they lost a game somewhere.  I figured if they went 16-0 overconfidence would bite them in the playoffs.  I didn't think it would be in the superbowl though.  Hats off to the NY giants.

Funny, I was also thinking along those lines, that the Giants kept all the same signals but changed what plays each one called for.

I also don't understand why they didn't seem to change a thing at halftime, it's like they were counting on the Giants folding in the second half and could just wait it out.  When the Giants defence seemed a little flat at the start of the second half that probably gave them too much confidence, it was surprising how strong the Giants were at the end and/or it was the Pats offensive line that folded.

That 2 week break always seems to mess up at least one team....

Oh god I'm so sad over this.  I never used to be big into foot ball, but when I saw Andy get into college ball, it made me develop a love for the game.  I wish now I didn't care so much.

It really makes me sad that so many people were so against the Pats going into this game.  Why do people like to see the guys on top go down?  In terms of the whole "Spy Gate" crap, every team studies tapes, and Bellichick has no control over who does the taping.  My guess is that it was some flunky assistant that thought he'd do something smart. 

We can't forget though, whether you like Brady or not, that he was very gracious in congratulating the Giants.  Eli Manning is still a whiney little bitch, though, but that has nothing to do with the game.  The fact is, when you look at Brady and the Pat's team stats, they dwarf the other teams.

It hurts so badly that they lost like this, but they just weren't playing like themselves. 

I'll always be a Pats fan, whether it's 'fashionable' or not.

You can't argue with the fact, though, that Eli Manning is at best a mediocre quarter back.  The MVP should've gone to Plaxico.  Or I should say, the Packer's should have gone to the SuperBowl, and Farve should've gotten MVP.

What sucks is that people who don't even LIKE the Giants - no wait, people who don't even LIKE FOOTBALL get to throw in their nasty two cents and rub salt in Pat's fans' wounds.   COME ON! (/God Bluth)

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3231375 (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3231375)

Last week, former New England Patriots video assistant Matt Walsh told ESPN.com that he wondered why the National Football League apparently didn't want talk to him about what he might know about Spygate.

The NFL does now.

League spokesman Greg Aiello said Monday that the league's security arm wants to talk to Walsh about a report that a member of the team's video staff taped the St. Louis Rams' pregame walk-through before Super Bowl XXXVI, according to USA Today.

Saturday, the Boston Herald reported that according to an unnamed source who was close to the Patriots at the time, a member of the team's video department had lingered at the Superdome after the Patriots' walk-through and taped the Rams as they went through their walk-through -- a non-contact, reduced speed review of plays they planned to use in the game.

The Patriots said that report was "absolutely false."

Walsh, now an assistant golf pro in Hawaii, hinted to ESPN.com that he might have information about the Patriots related to Spygate and wondered why the NFL had not contacted him during its probe into the team's videotaping practices. But he declined to make such information available to ESPN.com.

Now, the NFL wants to know what Walsh might know.

"We will seek to speak with him, so our security people are in the process of trying to make that happen," Aiello said, according to USA Today. He said the NFL wants to see if Walsh has new information.

Earlier, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said that if Walsh "has information inconsistent with what we have, we want to talk to him."

Saturday, Aiello said the league had been aware of the "rumor" about the walk-through taping for months and found no evidence in tapes or notes produced by the team. Goodell used much of his state of the game address on Friday before the Super Bowl to say he didn't think the Patriots used such tapes to win previous titles.

"There was no indication that it benefited them in any of the Super Bowl victories," Goodell said.

Goodell fined New England coach Bill Belichick $500,000 earlier this season and docked the team $250,000 and a first-round draft pick after league security officials confiscated a video camera and tape from a Patriots employee during New England's 38-14 victory over the New York Jets in the 2007 season opener.

The employee was accused of aiming his camera at the Jets' defensive coaches as they signaled to players on the field.

Goodell has said he will meet with U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., who has threatened to haul the NFL in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee over the destruction of evidence the NFL collected in its probe of the Patriots' taping practices. Specter also said he wants to meet with Walsh, whom the team fired after the 2002 season.

ESPN.com investigative reporter Mike Fish and The Associated Press contributed to this report.


Hopefully, they really did not tape the walk thru as that would be really dishonest and horrible.   If so, Belicheck would be finished in the NFL forever.   I hope they won fair and square.

Well, it seems that this whole thing is based on hear-say.   The Pats were punished fairly, Bellichick paid out of his own pocket, and I know that he probably makes a lot of money, but it still must hurt.  The Pats, like any other NFL franchise are a huge organization, and there is no way to say that anyone told this guy to film, or even if what he was filming was illegal.

Walsh isn't even a credible source.  He hasn't said anything concrete he just "hinted" at knowing something, then declined to say.  Sounds phoney to me.

It really makes me sad that so many people were so against the Pats going into this game.  Why do people like to see the guys on top go down? 

I like to root for the upset because it makes for better entertainment.  The Patriots are really easy to hate from the top down.   The Hoody is one of the biggest dicks in sports and he proved it by leaving the game before it was finished, despite being told directly by an official it was over.  I don't think the fact that Randy Moss has been a team player for this season lets him off the hook for being a jerk the rest of his career.  I don't buy for a second that Junior Seau really meant to retire 2 years ago and he went about getting out of San Diego in a really cheap manner.  And I don't like Brady either, his laugh at Plaxico's comment about 17 points tells me he deserved every hit he took on Sunday.  And call me crazy but I don't have respect for anyone who leaves their pregnant girlfriend, millionaire or not.  (That last comment applies to people I know on a personal level too) 

I do have respect for those who shut up and do their jobs like Wes Welker and the majority of the other players on the Patriots, and I would have been happy to see them with Super Bowl rings, but for the ones I've mentioned above, I hope they never even get to play in another Super Bowl. 

In fairness, I don't care for Eli either, for the same reason I never liked John Elway.  These players who refuse to play for a certain city when they are drafted really piss me off.  They are getting millions of dollars, shut up and sit on the bench for a couple of years and wait for your opportunity.  You are still getting Millions of dollars.

You make a lot of great comments, and yes, Welker is a great player and I hope he, Maroney, Rodney Harrison, and Bruschi get to go for it again next year.

I like Bellichick, but it's hard to have an opinion about something you (meaning I) don't know much about.  I wish Charlie Weiss was with the Pats, but that's a different story. 

I've said it in previous posts, but Eli is at best mediocre.  I don't think he deserved MVP, it was his linemen and receivers who were responsible for the game, and the Giants were unbelievable in sacking Brady, which was a huge part of it.

;)  It really wouldn't have been that big of a deal if it was the Packers that beat the Pats - I think they deserved it more than the Giants.  But, whatever :)


While Plaxico did catch the winning pass, he didn't deserve the MVP.  He had 2 catches for the night, and he was wide open for the TD, even though he put a sick move on Hobbs to get open.  David Tyree had both a TD and that circus catch on the last drive. So if any receiver were to get the MVP I would give it to him. You could have also given it to Justin Tuck who had 2 sacks and a forced fumble which stopped the Pats on a potential scoring drive going into the half.  He had a monster game.  But with that winning drive I certainly think Eli was worthy of the MVP. 

As far as Patriots hate goes, thats what happens when you're a good team.  I've dealt with Yankee hate for years.  Pats fans should be flattered at the hate directed towards them. 

I'm a big enough fan to admit when my team gets away with a lucky win.  The Giants got outplayed by the Cowboys for the first 3 quarters, and were lucky enough to stay within striking distance.   But the Pack didn't deserve anything.  They got outplayed by the Giants in that game, on their home field.
