Of Boys and Men

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 26, 2010

... Bryant.

The Giants did exactly what was predicted to the Cowboys, they made them one dimensional. The Cowboys had a total of 41 rushing yards - 41. For an entire game. They had abandoned the run from the jump and even if Romo were still in the game, they would have lost. You cannot win NFL games playing one dimensional football. It can't be done.

On the other side, Eli Manning threw 3 interceptions and the Giants still won the game. The Giants also had 3 fumbles, 2 of which they lost to the Cowboys. And still they won. Dallas had opportunities, they just couldn't make... (more)

It's Not Them, It's You

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 25, 2010

The Vikings lost to the Packers 28 to 24 on Sunday and although both teams made their share of errors, the reason the Vikings lost is Brett Favre, plain and simple.

Favre threw 3 interceptions during the game and made numerous bad passes outside of that, like the one at the end of the game out of bounds. But it was a pair of interceptions in the 3rd quarter that cost the Vikings the win. Those 2 interceptions were turned into touchdowns by the Packers. Those two interceptions cost the Vikings the game. Those two interceptions were thrown by Favre.

They Still Love To Hate Me

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 22, 2010

Sports Illustrated ran a poll with 239 NFL players voting on the most overrated players in the game. Overwhelmingly, the players voted for Terrell Owens. Somewhere, in a dark room TO is saying to himself, they still love to hate me.

TO has never been one to accept any responsibility for the way others perceive him. He thinks they are all just picking on him. He doesn't think he's ever been a distraction or problem for any team. He thinks it's all someone else and how they love to hate him because he's so much better than they are. Apparently, a majority of NFL players doesn't think... (more)

WIll the NFL stop Helmet to helmet Cheap shots? Probably not

By SanityCheck2, published on Oct 21, 2010

...game is in fact, what defines the game. Is this child’s game, played by some of the most superb athletes on the planet really nothing more than blood sport? Is this game so important that paralyzing or killing someone for the sheer sake of entertainment is an “Acceptable risk”?

The NFL Rulebook, which is, for the most part, merely a guideline for the geriatric and often confused NFL officiating corps, has the following:

“using any part of a players helmet (including the top/crown and forehead/hairline parts) or facemask to butt, spear, or ram an opponent violently or... (more)

The Chickification Of The NFL

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 21, 2010

The new rules coming out of the NFL are absolutely ridiculous. Well half of them are. But that half is heading the NFL straight to flag football.

The head shots rule is already a rule. There is a rule already on the books for helmet to helmet hits. It's very obvious to see a helmet to helmet hit. It's even pretty easy to tell if a guy meant to do it or if it was just an accident. The Dunta Robinson hit was not intentional. The hit on Joshua Cribbs was. It's just that simple and easy to deter

mine. These hits should be officiated. These hits are more dangerous than your... (more)

Got It Done

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 18, 2010

In a game of must wins and too many similarities, the Vikings special teams found a way to get it done. Favre had yet another mediocre performance and Romo, despite throwing 3 TDs still put up 2 interceptions. This game was won despite the quarterback on one side and because of the QB on the other.

Favre continued his mediocre play with a 14 for 19, 118 yard 1 TD and 1 INT effort. He did not look good again and even with the addition of Moss, he just couldn't throw the ball well at all. Moss had a total of 5 catches for 55 yards and no TDs. All of the receivers had anemic numbers.... (more)

Help Me Oprah, Help Me Tom Cruise, Help Me Randy Moss

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 7, 2010

Most of the sports media talking heads would have you believe that Randy Moss will save the Vikings from mediocrity this season by his addition alone. That Randy Moss will save Brett Favre from looking like a complete bonehead for returning to play another season. But their assumptions are wrong.

Randy Moss is a great receiver who was made better by going to New England. The Patriots system of play and their system of player accountability made Moss respectable again. He went from pretend mooner to half of one of the most prolific QB/WR components to ever grace the game. Moss, however,... (more)

Redskin Fans Get a Bye

By JJFCPA, published on Nov 1, 2009

Late October in Washington, D.C. is a beautiful time with the changing colors of the landscape from the Chesapeake Bay to the Blue Ridge Mountains. With the greens fast changing to reds, ocher and gold, the maples and other deciduous foliage dropping their leaves, the ground becomes a reddish gold carpet. Many residents including politicians, sports fans and nature lovers find it a perfect time to commune with nature. This year is like most as the temperature quickly drops and the wind sweeps the leaves which waft gently to the ground. And like last year, Redskin... (more)

Literally Speaking With Authors Of Football Is For Lovers

By boomergirl, published on Sep 1, 2009

... so nicely put it, " . . . all your boy toy wants to do now is neck with his favorite team and a can of brew or two?" Even the "Ack!" is well-said. So we ask you: how did this happen? Has your boy-toy, in fact, become more interested in football than in sex? Or have you perhaps sent him to the NFL version of the 'other woman' (in cleats no less!) by default? Of course, if you start liking football more than sex, it hardly matters anymore, now does it?

Make me laugh. Grab a smidgeon of an excerpt and let me hear it. You get extra brownie points if I fall out of my seat in... (more)

Slain Former Quarterback Steve Mcnair Not Worth Praise

By Joseph "J-Lo", published on Jul 9, 2009

...on television and radio alike, with what seemed to be every on-air talent ready to shower Steve McNair and his resume with eulogies. Even a colleague of mine, columnist for a national sports magazine, claiming “…the way he lived, the way he made people better, will always be his NFL legacy.” But in the end, how did he make his family and fans feel better?

Like a sheep and its flock, citizens followed. Listeners flooded sports talk radio airwaves this past week claiming that the man should be remembered for his charity, many skeptical about McNair and... (more)
