NBA Season So Far

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 8, 2010

So far the NBA season has played out pretty much as most people thought. The teams that people thought would be atop the standings are with very few surprises in the mix. Parity may be the name of the game in the NFL but in the NBA, there are the top teams and then there is everyone else.

In the Eastern Conference you have the Atlanta Hawks who were undefeated at 6-0 until Sunday night vs the Suns where they lost by 4 points. Then, there are the Boston Celtics at 6-1, Orlando Magic at 4-1, and the much hyped Miami Heat at 5-2. The Cleveland Cavaliers are next at 3-3 along with the... (more)

NFL Picks Week 9

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 6, 2010

Here we go - the weekly installment of NFL embarrassment. However, I think I'm getting better. Last week, I missed only 3 picks. Let's hope this week I do the same or even better - that would be surprising!

NYJ @ DET - Even though the Lions won last week with the return of Stafford, they won't win this week. They will however make a game of it as they are much better than their record indicates. Jets win.

MIA @ BAL - Huge defensive showdown between these two teams. It could come down to the last play of the game. I think the Ravens win, but the Dolphins have just as much... (more)

Pay To Play

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 5, 2010

I am not so naive to believe that this kind of thing hasn't gone on forever or that it continues to go on to this very minute. There is always someone looking to make a buck off an athlete. And there are athletes who are always looking for ways to skirt the rules. The story just broke yesterday on Kenny Rogers' "allegedly" trying to get close to 200 grand to get Cam Newton to come to Mississippi State to play football. But the story has been around for a lot longer than that, it's just taken the NCAA this long to start really doing something about it.

Allegedly, Cam Newton met Kenny... (more)

Here We Go Again

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 4, 2010

So, the only team to claim Randy Moss was the Tennessee Titans. Once again, everyone is SO excited. The very same words being uttered. Randy opens up the field. Randy draws defenders. Randy can really help our team. Heard that before recently?

The only real difference between the Titans and Vikings picking up Randy Moss, besides the fact the Titans didn't have to give up anything or pay any money, is that the Titans coach isn't a guy who has let his team and QB run the show and run over him. Jeff Fisher is about as far from Brad Childress as a coach as Kobe Bryant is from just... (more)

NFL Games To Watch Week 9

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 3, 2010

Two matchups this weekend that are going to be excellent – or at least they look like they will on paper. One is for dominance of both the NFC South and possibly the entire NFC and the other is a smash mouth fight for the AFC West.

In the NFC South, the Falcons are currently on top of the standings just above the Buccaneers by virtue of standings in the division with the Falcons at 1-0 and the Bucs at 1-1. The Bucs have been making a lot of noise about how they are the best team in the entire NFC, while the Falcons have just been going about their business….more under the radar. The... (more)

Purple Haze

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 3, 2010

Look, I seriously have ZERO idea what is going on with the Vikings. It's almost as if they have a compulsive need to be in the headlines. It's like the entire organization is peopled by narcissists. This team is 2-5 and ALL they ever do is create some sort of drama for themselves instead of trying to work to fix their problems with winning. I just do not get it.

Yesterday, allegedly, apparently, the Vikings let Randy Moss go. However, Brad Childress apparently did this without talking to Vikings front office management. The Vikings didn't have Moss on the waiver wire by the deadline... (more)

What If Kitna Wins?

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 1, 2010

Let's say Kitna leads the Cowboys to a win against the Jags today. Let's say he does it in convincing fashion. Let's say he gets the most out of a very talented Cowboys team who has yet to show what they really have under Romo. What if Kitna wins? What then?

For the longest time, I've thought that the Cowboys issues were multiple and internal. That there were several players who didn't want to play with each other. That there were several players who didn't like each other. I was never a believer that the Cowboys problems were the coach. I thought they were between the players,... (more)

Where We Stand - Week 8

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 1, 2010

The NFL standings after week 8 haven’t changed that much, but there is some movement to be noted. Some teams seem to be clicking on all cylinders and some just keep misfiring.

AFC East Team

New England Patriots 6 1

New York Jets 5 2

Miami Dolphins 4 3

Buffalo Bills 0 7

The Patriots have taken over the top of the division. Look familiar? Well most people are still discounting them. The talking heads say the Pats are weak on defense, make mistakes, don’t know what kind of team they are, blah, blah, blah. Who’s winning?... (more)

NFL Week 8 Picks

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 31, 2010

I'm getting used to the embarrassment now - so it's not bothering me so much to make my obviously ridiculous picks :) Maybe this week, I should just pick against my head and go with heart - that might work out better. I doubt it though and it's Halloween on Sunday - sounds like the perfect recipe for some freaked out games. Here we go!

DEN @ SF - The Broncos continue their mediocre to plain awful play, but somehow the 49ers are worse. Broncos win.

JAC @ DAL - Kitna....gets the win. Could it be that Romo is the problem for the Boys? You be the judge.

MIA @ CIN - A hard... (more)

Well this is not turning out anything like I thought it would. The Rangers certainly did their part with the bats in game 1 putting up 7 runs. The only problem is the Giants put up 11. Cliff Lee wasn't the game changer he had been all season long. Then comes game 2 where the Rangers got beat down 9-0 by Matt Cain. Talk about Joboo mojo. The Giants are full of it apparently.

In Game 2, Matt Cain held the Rangers 4 hits through 7.2 innings with NO runs. The Giants then used Lopez and Mota to finish out the game leaving the Rangers and their fans wondering just what team had shown... (more)
