Posted Wednesday April 10, 2013, About: Chiefs ready to make No. 1 history?
How is someone a "bust" after one year in the league? Of the three, Poe easily had the best rookie year and considering that he was the least experienced, he still has plenty of upside. Also, Tyson Jackson is only a "bust" in the sense that he got drafted MUCH earlier than he should have. He's played well when healthy these last couple of seasons and while he damn sure wasn't worthy of such a high pick, he's still become a positive contributor to the Chiefs' defense. In my mind a "bust" is somebody that doesn't improve the team at all.

Also, Naoele? Wtf?

Well, they had to omit the part where Williams kept yammering and RGIII popped him in the junk, prompting his immediate and continued silence. Now THAT is a leader, fellas!

Yeah, I think your opinion is just as wrong as you claim mine to be. Beautiful things, opinions.
Posted Tuesday May 29, 2012, About: Bonds talks of rejoining Giants
I should add that yeah, his playing nice is kinda shameless and nauseating to a degree but that's how you have to play that game.
Posted Tuesday May 29, 2012, About: Bonds talks of rejoining Giants
Regardless of whether he juiced, Bonds was a great player and the greatest outfielder of his generation BEFORE the roids (I think most people suspect he started doing it around 1999 or 2000; by that point, he'd already won 3 MVPs, 8 gold gloves, 8 all-star bids, and also had a 40-40 season). The steroid usage is inexcusable and I think it should keep him out of the Hall of Fame (though his numbers before PEDs were good enough to get him in by most accounts) BUT I don't think that should keep him from being able to pursue a career as a hitting coach or something to that effect. Unlike certain lunkhead roiders, Bonds not only knows the game of baseball but he loves it. While it's unfortunate that he made such an awful decision as a player, I think he has a lot to offer as a coach. In my mind, the biggest risk with hiring Bonds in this capacity is whether he can stifle his ego to a degree that will enable him to effectively work with younger players. There's really no way to know that outside of just giving him a chance (in a very small role at first). Despite the EPIC scandal, I think he's done enough positive things for the Giants to have earned that chance.

Posted Thursday February 02, 2012, About: Riley recruiting Przybilla and K-Mart
The Vanilla Gorilla lives!
Both of them will likely play in the NBA this season but as others have said, Pryzbilla is the more "complete" addition of the two. I'm sure that K-Mart still has some game but unlike Pryzbilla whose game remained at a good level in spite of chronic injuries, Martin's game has diminished. Now, what's to say that he hasn't returned to some semblance of his form from before he started to diminish? Likewise, how does anybody know that Pryzbilla will be as good as was before?
At this stage in their careers they're both role players who have paid enough dues and (presumably) retain enough to be considered valuable additions to any team looking to make a deep playoff run. Personally, I'd rather see Pryzbilla in Chicago and Martin on Miami but that's just because Chicago is more/less defined by their defense while Martin seems a more "viable" fit for Miami's running offense. Miami certainly has a great defense but stylistically, I think Martin is a better fit there.

Of course, this is presuming that Orlando continues to hold Dwight Howard hostage and he is not traded to the Bulls. On that subject, what would be fair compensation if they DID trade him to the Bulls? Deng and Gibson? Boozer and two draft picks? Whatever the scenario, it would seem unlikely that Deng or Boozer wouldn't be moved if they were to go after Howard.

Posted Monday October 24, 2011, About: Caldwell's fate appears sealed
Peyton Manning doesn't even get into a shootout without an O-line, which the Colts don't really have. It's pretty hard for any QB to succeed with a **** line and he's no exception. Thus, I could have "seen" a Manning-led Colts team maybe jack up 21-28 pts against the Saints but there's no way the Saints would have scored less than 45 against that defense.
If Indy wants to draft a QB at the top of the draft, let them. Their team is still going to be absolutely abominable unless hey fix their line and add depth to their defense (their defense is REALLY banged up, not that they were great to begin with).

Also, Caldwell bears some blame for certain but not even Bill Cowher could win with this husk of a NFL team.
Posted Monday October 17, 2011, About: Raiders 'trying hard' to land Palmer
I think Theismann is WAY overrated and thus, I wouldn't say he was just a whole lot better at that point (when he got TKO'd by LT) than pre-injury Jay Schroeder (yeah, "that" Jay Schroeder), Doug Williams or pre-injury Mark Rypien, all of whom succeeded him. Since Rypien's knee exploded though, the Skins have routinely sucked at QB.
Posted Thursday October 13, 2011, About: Jagr didn't like being 'the guy'
Didn't you realize that athletes aren't allowed to reflect on their careers in a way that is nothing less than peaches and sunshine? I mean, they make all that big money and get all of that attention, so there's really no reason for them to be unhappy about anything and if they are, they really have no right or reason to voice that publicly, even if that unhappiness is well in the past. Get with it, man!

Posted Saturday October 01, 2011, About: Ryan: Johnson not as good as Cowboys' receivers
That Fitzgerald guy in Arizona hasn't exactly gotten any worse the past couple of seasons but his QBs have, a LOT. Schaub and Stafford aren't at the top pf the league but they know how to get the ball to their key receiver. Fitz doesn't have that luxury. Also, I'd rank Greg Jennings up there. Maybe not ahead of Johnson, Johnson, and a QB-deficient Fitz but certainly ahead of Hairy Rob's beloved Austin and Bryant.
Posted Friday September 30, 2011, About: Shanahan ponders dumping fight game
If you take fighting out of the NHL then you'll see an exponential rise in cheap shots. Fighters are there to protect. No more, no less. Scratch that protection and you'll start having to worry about dangerous knee and gut shots as well as the head.

That said, I think this is all a lip service reaction to the slate of enforcers that died this past summer. There's no denying that tons of punches to the head are dangerous but I think it's wrong to assert that they played a significant part in the deaths of these players and it's even more wrong to piggyback the tragedy with some sort of agenda meant to save face.

I'm REALLY not a fan of fighting in hockey but it happens for a reason that's a little more "complex" than the pure male machismo it's long been portrayed as.
