Week 8

Well I havnt written in a while so I figured i would come out of my shell and Share my opinions. Last week the Patriots destroyed the Broncos by using the run game very effecticely because of a great performance by Sammy Morris and as the game went on passed the ball more often to effectively trick the Broncos D Cordinator. Anyway last week is old news and we get to play the hot Rams this sunday. Since when are the Pats expected to lost to the Rams what is this 2001, 2002? whats going on? Anyway the Rams have pulled out 2 in a row but i dont think us Pats fans have anything to worry about since Martin Gramatica probley has a better arm than Brad Johnson and is probly a better QB all around. Theres no doubt in my mind that without Romo, Packman, (yes he will always be Pacman to me that dirtbag) and the Dallas Defenses other stars that the Pats could beat the Cowboys under the current circumstances. I'm predicting a good game this sunday with the Pats beating the Rams by a margin of 17 with a final score of 31-14. I think Matt Cassel with throw for TDs to Moss and Welker and the running game will have another good game thanks to Jordan, Faulk and maybe Morris if he is able to play. I feel if Cassel loses this game or does not play well that there will be talks of getting O'connel prepared for the coming weeks but I expect Belicheck to most likely ride Cassel to the playoffs and finish the season 12-4 or 11-5. Well see what sunday brings. go pats!

Maroney

Well I was just watching NESN and the guys were talking about our boy Lawrence Maroney. They said he should be back this week and were comparing him to Marion Barber, saying he was injury prone and a bunch of other stuff, So I figured I would talk about the guy. LM is an average running back I feel the Pats drafted him to be a number one back but have found that he is the type of guy who is better with a couple other guys getting equal carries. Thats why I feel the Pats should look at the end of this season to get a good Number one Back and get rid of everyone else except Kevin Faulk and Sammy Morris because Morris is a good Backup and Faulk is a great third down back who catches everything. I was just wondering how fellow fans felt about Maroney and figured I would ask, What do you guys think?

Patriots

What now? After a loss to Miami some say it looks bleak for us Pats fans and that the Patriot Dynasty is over, or at least at a hiatus. But I disagree and not only because I'm a Pats fan but because isn't this exactly how our dynasty began. Everyone remember the mighty Mo Lewis' hit on Bledsoe and it looked like it was all over for a strong Pats team, but then came this backup QB named Brady who was picked not in the 1st or 2nd round but in the 6th and who didn't start at Michegan but backed up Brian Greise and only played a few minutes of garbage time here and there, but the Pats drafted him and had enough confidence after Beledsoe's injury to start him and they won a super bowl and became one of the most successful football teams and dynastys in history. (behind the Packers and Niners to name a few of coarse) We all know the story and many of you hate the Patriots and Brady for whatever reason and I am not saying that Matt Cassel or Kevin O'Connel is going to be Tom Brady and win the super bowl, But it's possible. I believe that because this team was built for success, because this team is coached by Bill Belicheck and we know how to win football games that you can never EVER count the Pats out. Even after a loss to the lowly Dolphins dont underestimate the Pats, we eat our humble pie each week and remember we love being the underdogs.

UCONN!

I just have to say what a performance in the second half by my boys to come back after being down 21-10 and beat Louisville 26-21. Even after losing star QB Tyler Lorenzen instead of losing hope down 21-10 we pulled it together with great performances from the whole team but especially Darius Butler, backup QB Zach Frazer, and especially Lawrence Wilson with his late touchdown off an interception return and Donald Brown who again ran for over 100 yards piling up 190 yards and a TD. This team is playing great and living in Connecticut I love watching Uconn at Renchler or on TV. Tonights game was a hell of a fight and I give the Cards credit for playing a good game but Uconn came out on top and now were 5-0.

Go UCONN

The Patriots

I will never give up on my team until it is impossible to make the playoffs so I hate it when people doubt my Pats. I feel If Cassel isn't right for the job that in a few weeks we have a great QB straight out of college named Kevin O'connel. This kid was looked very highly upon to be selected in the mid rounds by the Pats when Tom Brady looked to be ready to march to the Super Bowl. I think the Pats may bring in a Veteran arm like Testeverde to help out the rook and then get him going if things look bleak around week 6-7. The kid was good in college and he can run. Before the season the Pats were looked at to go around 14-2 or 12-4 so if O'connel or Cassel can play decent football with that supporting cast and if the Defense can straighten up I can definatally see 10-11 wins and being a Pats fan of course a trip to Tampa for theSuper Bowl.

R.I.P Bernie Mac one of my favorite Comedians.

I just want to say RIP Bernie Mac and I know he is not an athelete or in association with a team but this guy was hilarous. He had a great sitcom I loved to watch and was hilarious in the Kings Of Comedy with Cedric the Entertainer and the other guys. I'm going to miss him dearly like many of us will and didn't see this one coming. On a day when the only thing I can complain about is the Red Sox losing I have to remember the important things in life and recognise the loss of a great great man. Bernie we love you and you will forever be in our hearts.

 

                                                                                                  

                   RIP Bernie MAC 1957-2008

Just a quick Post defending NFL Coaches

As I sit and watch the last round of the draft on ESPN and listen to the ESPN correspondants talk about the Packers I look up from my Fantasy Baseball scores and shake my head. They sit around their table in New York and begin to discuss how in the world can Packers Coach Mike Mccarthy say that he belives his team will be even better than last year. First of all they probobly will be better at every postition besides QB because of Brett Favre's retirement. Second of all how could a head coach come out and say "I think our team is going to be worse than we were last year and that we will probably lose in the first or second round of the playoffs." Even though the 49's will probably finish in the cellar of their divsion yet again this year Coach Mike Nolan will most likely say publicaly that he belives his team will be better this year and that they belive they will take their division and can go to the Super Bowl. Coaches have to say this. They have to say this because despite their teams talent they have to belive their team is the best and want to win the Super Bowl every year. Maybe these professonals should think about what coaches a coaches job is and not just the facts.

Barry Bonds

I am just curious as to how everyone feels about Bonds being a free agent and peoples thoughts on weather or not he would be a great fit and Seattle and if the Mariners should sign him. I for one have loved Bonds since he entered the league and he has been my favorite player for years. I know many are opposed to Bonds for obvious reasons and I understand this but no matter how you feel about the man if you put your feelings aside and forget about the steroids you must admit the man is a great ballplayer. Last year with bad knees and limited playing time he hit 28 homers hit over .270 with around 70 RBI's and still had a great .OBP doing so while still playing over 100 games and playing in the field not even as a DH. So if he was signed by the Mariners and played DH everyday for that team would a .280 average with 70 RBI's and 60 runs maybe more be a stretch? I dont see why not. I feel if Bonds was signed by the Mariners he wouldn't cause a problem off the field because he couldn't afford to. The man wants to play baseball and would most likely avoid the media and stay out of trouble. I feel that despite who the player is if signing him would be of best intrest for your team why not do so and take a risk? In todays age you could even structure his contract to make sure his trial would not interfere with anything.
