Two Wrongs Don’t Make A Right So How Come Both The NFL And NFLPA Come Off Looking Like The Biggest Idiots On The Face of The Planet ?

I’m not so sure what to make of the idiocy now taking place between the NFL and NLFPA (Players’ Union) as it relates to the collective bargaining agreement . Several of the patrons of my site have long held the belief that the league and union will come to an amicable agreement that will be equitable for all of the parties concerned . Well with the expiration of the existing agreement due to expire at midnight 3rd March , I’d seriously like to know how is it that the owners , at the league’s behest cannot simply reach agreement with the NFLPA headed by its President Kevin Mawae and Executive Director DeMaurice Smith . On the opposing side of the issue we have NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell , and the owners headed by some of the most powerful men within the game , Robert Kraft , Bud Adams , Jerry Jones , Woody Johnson , Steve Tisch , John K Mara , Pat Bowlen and Art Rooney II .

Bengal Tiger …………… No These Are The Cincinnati Bengals A Tiger That Is Of No Imminent Danger To Anyone !

OK so what were we to expect of the Cincinnati Bengals ? I’ve given up completely on Chad Ochocinco as a player who continues to disappoint not only on the field but off it. And which idiotic tv executive thought it appropriate to give both Ochocinco and Terrell Owens their own talk show ? Isn’t that like giving a loaded hand gun to a mass murderer ? You simply know in the end that no good can come of it all.

The New England Patriots had their first BIG win of the season beating the Ravens at home after the bye week. Then before you could flip the page to see the next scheduled game, the NFL scene changed dramatically to player safety and helmet-to-helmet hits.

The Patriots own safety Brandon Meriweather was fined and partially benched for a flagrant launch hitting TE Todd Heap and putting him out of action with a stinger for a a portion of the game.

The Patriots back to work on Wednesday this week, chose to ingore the Ravens game and everything not associated with the San Diego Chargers.

The issues from the last game and comments from Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs as well the hoopla over Meriweather created enough media buzz, which helped Coach Belichick push the team to focus for this week. Let’s hoped the team listened. Here are the Patriot Acts for week 6:

Every year there are matchups in the preseason that are intriguing, because they may be possible Super Bowl previews.

It is even better when those matchups take place in the third preseason game. Thursday Night was one of those nights when the Indianapolis Colts took on the Green Bay Packers. Both teams made the playoffs in 2009.

The Colts won the AFC Championship Game and lost to the New Orleans Saints 31-17 in the Super Bowl and the Packers were a wild card team that lost in the first round to the Arizona Cardinals 51-45 in overtime.

Now that training camps are finally here, it is time to make predictions of how each team will do in 2010.

Here is my breakdown of each division in the AFC.

AFC East

The Favorites: The New York Jets finished the 2009 season 9-7 and were the final team to make the playoffs, but they made the most of their opportunity and made it all the way to the AFC Championship Game.  The strength of the Jets was their running game and defense; both ranked first in the NFL.

They spent the offseason upgrading their team in any fashion possible.  In free agency they added RB LaDainian Tomlinson and DE / LB Jason Taylor. They traded for WR Santonio Holmes for a fifth round pick and CB Antonio Cromartie for a third round pick.  Finally, they drafted CB Kyle Wilson and G Vladimir Ducasse.  Expectations are that these moves were the final pieces of a championship team and it is Super Bowl or bust in the second year of the Rex Ryan era…

Miami Dolphins linebacker Jerry Porter and his ever-flapping gums are no strangers to Patriots fans or, for that matter, any NFL fan. Porter’s mouth is in a constant state of readiness, and is often in use, belittling his opponents and doing a hefty dose of trash talking. That trend has continued this week leading up to the big AFC East showdown between the Pats and the Fins this Sunday at Gillette Stadium. During a conference call with New England reporters earlier in the week, Porter started out by explaining just how he feels about the Patriots, and those feelings didn’t start when he joined the division.

My feelings toward New England go back further. It goes back to my Pittsburgh days. I felt a certain way, after some things came out, way back when I was in Pittsburgh, some AFC championships I lost to them, couple times. Come to figure out a few months later why we lost. So yeah, I have a natural hate for them. Period. And that’s just gonna be with me forever.

Patriots fans have a lot to be happy about after Sunday’s 59 – 0 shellacking of the Tennessee Titans. The offense moved at will up and down the snowy Gillette Stadium field and the defense stonewalled the Titans’ offense every series, pitching a shut out. However, many fans have been questioning whether Sunday’s domination was because of the Patriots regaining form or the Tennessee Titans showing why they are now 0 – 6. It was a little bit of both, probably more so that the Titans were really THAT bad. I would put it at 60 – 40. However, Pats fans do have definite positives to take from the game, even if it was the Titans.

Day 361: Patriots Go 16-0
Is Buffalo trying for a Moss redux? (photo by Beth)

So here I am on an unseasonably warm Sunday afternoon, watching the Red Sox tee off on their ALCS nemesis, Tampa Bay, enjoying the idyllic pre-season pace of it all while I gear up for another work week. I began last year’s baseball season with the worst football hangover I’d ever experienced, and I’ve been determined this year to make up for the fact that I couldn’t muster any enthusiasm for my baseball team until at least last May or June.

But football will just not quit lobbing bombshells. Not even for a minute.

First, there was the news that T.O. had been released by the Dallas Cowboys. Man, if even Jerry Jones doesn’t want to put up with you anymore, what does that say about you?

This week more then one person has commented about rooting for the Jets to win versus the Dolphins in order for the Patriots to clinch the AFC East title and become the 3rd seed on the AFC. I think a few people have forgotten the Patriots need to beat the Bills first.

If both the Dolphins and Patriots do win then the only way the Patriots may make it in a wild card spot is if the Ravens lose to the Jaguars. I think it will be a tough job for the Jags. The Ravens are playing extremely well and rookie quarterback Joe Flacco has been playing better then I expected. But this would be the second gift the Patriots would need to receive.

The Patriots may be a little Rosie-r these days, but the are also looking to Seau.

The competition in the AFC East is pretty tight as the Jets continue to lead the division and the Patriots are tied with the Dolphins. Buffalo raced out the gates earlier this season to lead the AFC and now are hard pressed to make it into the playoffs, but could upset a few teams from making it through – including the Patriots.

The Patriots have four games left and basically need to win them all to make it into the playoffs. Staying two weeks with games versus Seattle and Oakland on the west coast before returning to play at home versus Arizona and then the season finally in Buffalo, the Patriots have a harder schedule then most people believed at the beginning of the season.
