NFL Week 4 Thoughts

September 30th, 2007 . by admin

- The Lions put up 34 points against the Bears in the 4th quarter, I refuse to buy into them regardless, this is DETROIT people… a collapse is imminent.

- Is there anybody on earth happier than Tony Romo’s agent right now? Tony is in a contract year and playing better than any quarterback not named Tom Brady. Jerry Jones is gonna have to break his pockets.

- I watched Ronnie Brown dancing in the huddle this afternoon, and thought to myself how odd it was. He then proceeds to break off a 60 yard run a few seconds later. I mention this because I know I’ll never see anyone do this again and it needs to be noted… In other Miami props.. Justin Fargas of the Oakland Raiders broke off a long run, speeding past the linebackers and secondary, guess who ran him down from the line of scrimmage?… Jason Taylor. I’ve never seen a defensive linemen chase down a speedy running back in the open field.

- There were 30 seconds left in the fourth quarter in the Raiders vs. Dolphins matchup, Oakland has the ball on Miami’s 5 yard line. Instead of kneeling it for the win, they bootleg Daunte Culpepper out and he runs it in for his 3rd rushing TD of the day. Totally uncalled for and I loved every minute of it.

Daunte then taunts the Miami fans while pointing at his knee. They deserve it

- Speaking of money, I don’t know how much Brian Westbrook makes, but after seeing how dismal the Eagles are without him, I would hold out in training camp next year. They have to pay him. Donovan saw more sacks than Tara Reid tonight.

- The countdown until Norv Turner is fired has officially started.

- Adrian Peterson has rushed for 100 yards in all but one of his games so far. Today he broke the century mark on just twelve carries. This guy is the truth, why are they still starting Chester Taylor????

- I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t happy Marvin Harrison got injured. It’s sweet poetic justice considering the fact that he scurries out of bounds on every play, or dives to the ground before the nearest defender can deliver a hit.

- Devin Hester is amazing as usual… I have a feeling our generation is gonna be talking about this guy 20-30 years from now. He’s earning the 100 overall rating he got in Madden 2008.

Jermain Taylor vs. Kelly Pavlik Round By Round

September 29th, 2007 . by admin


The-middleweight showdown between undefeated fighters Jermain Taylor and Kelly Pavlik will be happening within the hour. We’ll be live blogging round by round updates of the action. This is the first of many exciting fights that will be taking place before the end of the year. More than anything I hope the fight turns out to be exciting, Taylor needs an impressive outing to shut the critics up.

If you’re looking for video of the fight, Click Here

Round 1 – The fighters were a little testy with each other during the refs instructions. Taylor is busy, throwing frequent hard shots, occasionally connecting. Taylor is not respecting pavlik’s power, Pavlik hit taylor with a few good counter shots, the crowd loved it. I’m getting the impression that a brawl is gonna break out soon. Taylor controlled the first half, Pavlik closed it out… very close… I’m giving this one to taylor by a hair.. but it could easily be scored the other way.

Round 1 goes to taylor.

Round 2 - neither guy scored much during the first minute. Taylor released a barrage of punches, a vicious combo. Pavlik goes down! This could end in a hurry. Taylor is absolutely mauling him. Pavlik is struggling to stay on his feet. Pavlik was doing the Zab Judah crip walk for a minute. Taylor’s barrage has ended, he’s tired.. Pavlik is getting his legs back slowly, alot of clenching and holding. The bell rings, By the grace of god Pavlik makes it through round two… I have no idea how he pulled that off.

10-8 Round for Taylor

Round 3 – Pavlik comes out fast, scoring multiple overhand rights on Taylor. Jermain doesn’t seem to be hurt at all. With 90 seconds left in the round, no fighter has asserted themselves so far. Pavlik is the busier fighter, Pavlik scores big shots, he now has taylor on the ropes pounding away. Taylor responds with Read the rest of this entry »

Ex Cowboy Clint Stoerner Charged With Drunken Driving

September 29th, 2007 . by admin

Football has jumped to an early lead in the Sportaphile Fantasy Criminal League with an arrest not even 24 hours after scoring began.

Clint StoernerFormer Dallas Cowboys quarterback Clint Stoerner was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, violation of the implied-consent law requiring a driver to submit to a breath-analysis test if requested by police, and violation of the city’s motor-vehicle sound limit ordinance, which are all misdemeanors. These three charges bring in a whopping 150 points for the football squad.

“There was a distinct odor of intoxicants on his breath (and) his eyes were bloodshot and glassy. Stoerner swayed when he stood still,” the police report said.

Police administered a field sobriety test, which “indicated that he was intoxicated,” and Stoerner was arrested and taken to the Washington County Jail, police said

Stoerner served five NFL seasons (four in Dallas, 2000-2003), and played for the Arkansas Razorbacks, Stoerner still holds many Razorback passing records. Read the rest of this entry »

The Shaq Divorce Saga: Who Cheated On Who? Is Shaunie Stealing Money?

September 29th, 2007 . by admin

Update: March 31st: Pictures Of Shaq’s new Girlfriend HERE

While we haven’t gotten any concrete details in the divorce between Shaq and Shaunie O’neal, this doesn’t seem like a typical case of “irreconcilable differences”. The fact that Shaquille requested Shaunie turn over financial records indicates some bitter feelings in the air. The ever questionable Media Take Out is reporting Shaunie stashed away 9 million dollars of Shaq’s cheddar and he aint havin it. Is Shaq gonna have to slap a bish?

The rumors of Shaunie having an affair with her personal trainer have been swirling for a while now, so her infidelity could have played a role. We mustn’t forget Shaq’s side though, I’m sure Shaunie wasn’t happy when she read about her husband tricking on Superhead. But then again she had to expect it, the biggest star in the NBA must be raking in groupie poon like leaves in the fall. Is it realistic for a woman to expect an NBA player to remain monogamous?

Media Take Out also reported (again, take this with a grain of salt) that Shaq Read the rest of this entry »

This Weeks Losers (Sept. 22nd – Sept 28th)

September 28th, 2007 . by admin

1.The San Diego Chargers
Norv Turner managed to turn a 14-2 super bowl bound team into joke. L.T. can’t run the ball, Shawne Merriman had 2 tackles last week..TWO TACKLES! This is the same guy who had seventeen sacks in 12 games during the 2006 season. They’ll still making the playoffs, but you think this charger squad can beat any of the AFC’s elite? Colts, Patriots, Steelers?? .. nah. Maybe next year fellas.

2. The Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs won their first game of the year, but their hometown fans didn’t get excited about their sloppy win. The biggest cheer of the day was when KC Wolf, the club mascot tackled a drunk fan in the third quarter. Why even pay Larry Johnson $30 million dollars when all you need is an illegal mexican in a wolf costume to get a rise out of folks?

3. Milton Bradley
Blowing out your knee while you’re trying to look tough is NOT a good look. It makes it even worse that the umpire is so old. I bet Milton never in his wildest dreams thought he’d one day be laying at the feet of an old white man crying like a girl. The whole thing reminds of this animated picture. Watch how the first old guy thought he was tough shit. He was like “hold this right quick, let me whip this punk ass”… then… SWIIIING AND A MISS... breaks his hip in the driveway.

4. The New Orleans Saints
New Orleans is cursed. Everyone had them pegged to win the NFC and go to the Super Bowl, and somehow it Read the rest of this entry »
