NFL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Thursday, 2-9

NFL Update:

  • Terrell Davis played like a running back in the NFL, but was treated like a QB in getting inducted into the HoF.
  • Look for AZ to continue to tread water/go nowhere next year, with the reliably inconsistent Carson Palmer under center. #Cardinals
  • Kyle travels many miles for a fresh start in San Fran, but still faces a pile of quests about the plays Atlanta ran (no, threw) in the 2nd half of the Super Bowl. #FortyNiners
  • Seahawks clean house by giving Hauschka the boot and starting up the Blair Walsh resurrection project. #Seahawks

NFL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Sunday, 2-5

NFL Update:

Falcons snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, when Atlanta goes one too many times to the well of Matty Ice; a simple 40-yard field goal was in the bag and sure would have sufficed. Instead, it’s a sack, paving the way for a game winning Patriot comeback. As is usually the case, New England executed when it had to, avoided the titanic mistakes, and cements itself as the greatest football dynasty of all time. We should all feel honored to have been there to witness the magic of Brady and his band of well-apprenticed assistants. Congratulations to New England on another title. Watch out New York … they’re gaining on you at an alarming rate. #Patriots #Falcons

NBA Update, Recap and Perspectives: Sunday, 1-22

NBA Update:

  • Warriors pull a huge cache of 3’s out of their hats, while Magic pull a big disappearing act in a disastrous 3rd. #Warriors #Magic
  • Suns’ finish off teetering Toronto with a furious rally in the fourth; could this be a signal that the Raptors are falling from their perch as a power player in the East.
  • Lakers appear to be throwing in their terrible towel on the season a bit prematurely, to the delight of Dallas. #Lakers #Mavericks
  • T-wolves take down Nuggets with a monster game from Towns, who populates the nets and scours the boards with a huge double, double. #Nuggets #Timberwolves

NFL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Sunday, 1-22

NFL Update:

  • Green Bay’s 2nd rate defense finally comes back to haunt them, as Falcons race out to a huge lead and not even Aaron Rogers can waive his wand to save them. If ATL plays like this in 2 weeks,… who knows … they have all the weapons on offense, and but will probably need some luck/friendly bounces of the ball to get by Brady. #Packers #Falcons
  • As always, NE came out sharp and focused, while Pittsburgh looked a bit scared, dazed and generally unsure of themselves. The situation was not helped when Le’Veon left with a tender groin, and the crisis reach a boiling point when the Steelers didn’t have the power to punch it in from the 1/2 yard line given 4 downs. When it was all over, the team that was more prepared, more ready to execute, and generally more up for the challenge won, and Mike Tomlin must again face the reality that he just doesn’t seem to have a game plan to deal with the Patriots and their scary game face. Patriots will be favored, justifiably, against Atlanta, but will have to work harder than they did tonight, given the balance and potency of the Falcons’ attack. It should be interesting…#Steelers #Patriots

NFL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Saturday, 1-21

NFL Update:

  • Sorry Jimbo — but Pagano’s gotta go… you’ll have to learn this the hard way, as your team falls further and further behind the Texans.
  • Let’s hope Tomlin has his team believing it can win this game, because it certainly can. Pittsburgh has all the weapons it needs on offense, and must simply have the mind set that it must get the full reward of TDs, not field goals, when inside the red zone. Hopefully, Pittsburgh will not shy away from going for it (more than once) on 4th down; field goals won’t do the job, as they’ll likely need at least 32-35 points to win this one (unless bad weather dictates otherwise). Can they stop Brady? Of course not completely, but if they can limit the damage by putting him on the ground a few times and punishing the short stuff over the middle, this might be enough. Steelers will grab the early lead, and hang on for a 34-30 victory. #Steelers #Patriots
  • Atlanta seems to have too much going for it in this one, including a healthier set of receivers and running backs, and a QB that is having the season of his life. However, GB’s defense has picked up a bit of the slack lately, and how can you bet against Rodgers. Mason Crosby will again provide the margin of victory in a very close and entertaining game. #Packers #Falcons
