Like A Box Of Chocolates

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 17, 2010

This week's Thursday night game pits the Chicago Bears against the Miami Dolphins. Both of these teams can win and both of these teams have problems. Most people would say Miami has more being down to their 3rd string quarterback, but maybe not. The Bears QB Jay Cutler is like a box of chocolates....you never know what you're going to get.

Let's look at some of Cutler's stats from this season: 12 TDs, 9 INT, 30 sacks, and 7 fumbles to go with a 61% passer rating and a little over 1900 yards passing. The Bears are 6-3 atop their division and 5-3 in the conference. It sounds relatively... (more)

Not So Fast

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 17, 2010

Before Monday night's game versus the Eagles, word came out that the Redskins had given Donovan McNabb a brand new huge contract. People were asking themselves, why would a team and a player who obviously have problems with each other agree to such a seemingly outrageous deal?! Not so fast my friends. Once again, things are not as they first appear.

The Redskins have an out clause in the deal. This clause states that at the end of this season the Redskins can cut McNabb and owe him NOTHING. Not a single penny. They can use him the rest of the season and then cut him loose free and... (more)

Flying High

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 17, 2010

Michael Vick took apart record books and Redskins defensive schemes on Monday night with a look of such ease it made you wonder if you were watching a dream. From the very first play from the snap, Vick looked other worldly. As if he were an Eagle, flying high above the field of play, above the rain, above the past he has worked hard to put behind him. Michael Vick was flying high and the Eagles were putting up historic numbers in the NFL record books.

Coming into the game Donovan McNabb had agreed to a 5 year, 78 million dollar deal with the Redskins, a deal I do not understand at... (more)

Pirates Get Hurdle

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 15, 2010

Clint Hurdle, the former manager of the Colorado Rockies and the most recent hitting coach for the World Series participant Texas Rangers, will be named today as the new manager of the Pirates. Hurdle, was up for the managing job with the New York Mets and would have gone for a 2nd interview there this week, but instead decided to choose to manage the Pirates instead. His decision is not entirely based on baseball though.

Hurdle has an 8-year-old daughter named Madison who was born with the very rare Prader-Willi syndrome. Hurdle and his family were able to get great treatment for... (more)

Winning Is Good

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 13, 2010

The Atlanta Falcons beat the Baltimore Ravens in Thursday night football 26-21 after leading the game 20-7 and then letting the Ravens come back and get ahead. The Falcons then had to score a TD in the last 2 minutes of the game in order to win. But such is the story of the Falcon's lives.

The Falcons have made a bad habit of getting way out in front in games and then in the 2nd half letting teams back in the game. Some of these games, the Falcons have been able to win like against the Ravens and some they have lost. It is not a good habit to get into. The first half they play all... (more)

Garrett's Not The Answer

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 10, 2010

The Cowboys issues a lot bigger than Wade Phillips. Firing him and replacing him with Jason Garrett is not going to cure the Cowboys troubles. In fact, it just may make some of them worse and here's why.

Phillips was a long time head coach. He had experience. He had knowledge. He had earned the ability to get respect. He had been around the corral a few times. And yet, his players did not respect him. They didn't listen. They did just what they wanted to do...as little as possible.

Now the Cowboys bring in a coach who is 20 years younger with very little experience.... (more)

Whiners Aren't Winners

By Deborah Horton, published on Nov 9, 2010

If you recall, I said when TO and Ochocinco ended up on the same team that it would be about 6 games before it started to unravel. I was off a few games, but I was right. Only, I had it backwards. It's Ochocinco that's the problem, not TO.

In Monday night's game between the Bengals and Steelers, the Steelers had the game won, like so many games this weekend, but then they let the Bengals back in it. TO had the bulk of the Bengals receptions with 10 catches for 141 yards and 2 TDs. Ochocinco had 1 catch for 15 yards. As the Bengals were trying to come back, Ochocinco was all up in... (more)
