How do you spell domination?   SEAHAWKS!  Seattle Seahawks!

All the hype...All the speculation...All the prognostication...And very few people favored the Seahawks...And no one expected to see them totally dominate Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos...But they did...43-8

 

How do you show your dominance?  Start by winning the coin toss, and giving Manning the ball first...Boom, snap over Manning's head, out of the end zone, Safety!  Give us the ball! No problem moving the ball, field goal...Manning and company couldn't seem to get things on track...Another field goal...Manning INT...Seattle TD...Another Manning INT returned 69 yards for a TD from MVP, Malcom Smith...Shutout 22-0 going into the half....

 

The second half, Seattle picked up where they left off, with Percy Harvin taking the opening kick back 87 yards for a TD...Mix in a couple Denver fumbles...another TD...Then at the end of the third, the Broncos finally get a TD and 2 pointer...So Seattle drove down and fired in another TD...Then let the defense continue shutting the Broncos offense down...

 

Now it's easy to shit all over Manning...Him and his big stupid blockhead, in those damn Papa John's commercials...Couple of douchebags they are...But this wasn't just Manning throwing picks and going to choke city again...The whole Broncos team was out-played, and out-coached...I never like Carroll when he was at USC, but he's been able to take his winning ways to the NFL...This team bought into his plan...It didn't matter what Denver did...They were beat in every aspect of the game...

 

 

All my life I've been taught defense wins championships...Well, even in a NFL that has done whatever it can to make life easier for QB's and offenses, the Seahawks proved the old theory to still be true...

 

 

I loved this game...I mean, I've been all in with The Seahawks since I quit the Browns last year...Plus I hate the Broncos, and I hate the Mannings...Many people were complaining about it being a snoozer on Twitter...Well sure it was, if you were rooting for Denver, or just rooting for a close game...But for me, and all Seattle fans, this game was fucking awesome! My favorite Super Bowl!

 

But it was fun watching Twitter...The commercials seemed to be a letdown for most people...I know I stopped watching them, so I could check Twitter and Facebook...

here's some tweets I enjoyed...

Dennis Manoloff       

"Brad Johnson still has as many Super Bowl rings as Peyton Manning."

 

Eric Stangel       

"It's a bad sign when the Pro Bowl is more competitive than the Super Bowl…"

 

The Fake ESPN       

"One Denver Broncos player can change a flat tire by himself. Unless it's a blowout, then the whole team shows up."

 

opie radio       

 " #blowout - Fox might want to consider telling Erin Andrews to take a shower to keep people tuned in"

 

After the Don Cheadle llama commercial with all kinds of other shit going on...

 

Jim Norton       

"I wish that llama had shit on the elevator"

 

Justin Termine       

"John Fox should tell Manning this game is meaningless."

 

Tim McNeeley       

"Is there enough pot in Denver to forget how fucking awful your team has played!?! #Seahawks"

 

After a shot of Michael Douglas stuffing a hot dog in his face...

 

Jenny Johnson

"Hey Michael Douglas. Hot dogs are more unhealthy than pussy :("

 

And postgame...

 

Betsy Kling - WKYC       

"SideNote: #SuperBowl champ QB Wilson went in the 3rd round of draft in 2012. In that same draft, the #Browns chose Brandon Weeden in 1st."

 

But after all this Super Bowl talk, and Seattle love, I may have to quit the NFL after reading THIS article this Sunday morning...

That's it folks...Way to make me look good Seahawks...

Have a week...

Does Defense ALWAYS Win Championships???

This one is a toughie... 

 

It’s a flip of the coin... 

 

Go with the offensive Broncos...

 

Or like they say...

 

Defense wins championships... 

 

It’s so easy to pick Denver and its high scoring machine...

 

It’s the sexy pick...

 

Takes a lot more intestinal fortitude to pick Seattle...

 

And deep down inside...

 

You crave the defeat of the Seahawks, don’t you???

 

Gotta see it happen, right???

 

And even moreso...

 

Ya wanna see The Toast burn...

 

You rememeber The Toast, don’t you???

 

New York Giants defensive back (34) Elvis Patterson runs with the ball against the San Francisco 49ers during the 1986 NFC Divisional Playoff Game at Giants Stadium. The Giants defeated the 49ers 49-3.

 

Elvis “Toast” Patterson...

 

Got that nickname 'cus he got burned all the time...

 

And nothing would be sweeter than Knott’s Berry Farm preserves...

 

To see Richard Sherman burned...

 

Again...

 

And again...

 

And again...

 

It's all his big mouth's fault, isn't it???

 

Just tell that Richard Sherman to...

 

Shut the...

 

Front door...

 

I would probably root for Seattle if it weren’t for him...

 

No I wouldn’t...

 

I wanna see Peyton win another one...

 

Do you agree with me???

 

Is the feeling mutual???

 

I guess that would make it...

 

(Pun alert...)

 

Mutual for Omaha...

 

 

Holy Marlin Perkins, Batman!!!

 

And sometimes the heart says one thing...

 

And the head disagrees...

 

That’s the case here...

 

The heart is with Denver...

 

The head is with the old adage...

 

Defense wins championships...

 

Except in even numbered years...

 

When you can add the digits together...

 

And they equal seven...

 

At least I hope so...

 

But I really do believe Seattle will find a way...

 

Even though Manning has a clear cut advantage over Russell Wilson...

 

The experience factor...

 

The “I  have better receivers than you do” factor...

 

But I just can’t get away from that stupid old adage...

 

It keeps haunting...

 

And Seattle d-fence is clearly much better...

 

But you never know...

 

The Bronco defense could rise to the occasion...

 

After all...

 

They’re used to playing in snow and colder weather...

 

Not that Seattle plays in Miami...

 

It gets pretty rainy and cold there...

 

So maybe that will counter-balance the previous counter-balance...

 

But I do think Seattle will win...

 

And that Richard Sherman will get burned at least once...

 

But does that really matter...

 

Not really...

 

There’s only one thing that really matters...

 

Broncos 6, Seahawks 2...

 

And those, my friends...

 

Are my football pool numbers...

 

 

Who really cares, right???

 

Just as long as we win the pool and the commercials are entertaining...

 

 

 

Final Prediction...

 

Seattle 22, Denver 16...

 

And I will donate my winnings to charity...

Next Man Up

Next man up

The mantra of the recently dispatched New England Patriots?

Final words on AFC Championship

Peyton was great, his receivers are great, his line protection was great.

Tom was average, his receivers are below average, his line protection was below average.

Good luck to the Broncos, clearly the best team in the AFC.

There are a few of us New Englanders here at the Gab and on a seasonal basis you fellow gabbers put up with our sometimes arrogant but always honest dissertations on our local pro teams. This is appreciated.

Thanks for your recent sympathies on the fall of the Pats.

A recent article I read listed the 25 top drunken cities in the US.

it was based on drinks per adult per month. Boston came in #1

No the Mayor didn't call for a duck boat parade to celebrate this distinction but the results may...may be directly connected to the 8 

duck boat victory parades in Boston since 2001. One of the several categories used to determine the top cities that is noteworthy is the Binge Drinking category where Boston ranked 9th overall, behind

#1 Buffalo

#2 Cleveland

#3 Detroit

One of my sons surmised that binge drinking and frustratingly bad football goes hand and hand.

But in Boston

We are a spoiled rotten lot for sure our team won their division by 4 games and earned a first round bye, Won a home playoff game before being dismissed by a better team from Denver.

Yes its true we think we are the most astute and objective of sports fans. We sometimes feel we are entitled to another title and another Duck Boat Parade.

But with the recent departure of long time and beloved mayor Thomas Mumbles Menino

the run may be over.

Could we be entering into a dry spell?

Will this be known as the curse of Mumbles?

In our defense most of us lived thru the really bad years,

just say the names:

ML Carr, Ron 2-12 Erhardt, Jimi Williams and Bobby V.

and the NE gabbers

Sully, Lanz, Mo, Radatz, Hal and Tage will cringe. We all have seen the bad, worse, mediocre and the good, better and best.

The Boston teams have won some championships in my lifetime for sure.

The Celtics 17 times, The Bruins 3, The Red Sox 3

And the Pats 3

As a child of the 50s & 60s I grew up on the Celtics incredible run of ?9 in 10 years.

I was there for the Havlicek titles from 74 & 76

?

I was breathing the Beantown air and drinking in the Dirty Water as the Bird era brought home 3 more in the 80s

I was at the Bahstan Gahdin for the Bs Stanley Cups of 70-72 section 99 far above the banners.

?

?

I lived and died with the Sox close game seven WS losses in 67, 75 and 86

I lived thru the days when the Patriots would trot out the likes of RBs Josh Ashton and John Tarver and Marion one yard Butts?.. 1 yard, 1 yard, followed by an incomplete pass from the likes of Hugh Millen, Matt Cavanaugh or Tony Eason

followed by a punt but never ever did I lose my love for the Pathetic Pats.

We even had a group of guys in section 304 we called ourselves 3 and out.

In 1986 the Pats put a run together behind the quiet genius coach Raymond Berry all the way to the Super Bowl in New Orleans? was an impossible SB title finally a thing to grasp?

SB XX featured da Bears and the 46-10 slaughter at least my favorite football player of all time got his ring

Walter Payton that is!

 

 

New ownership for the Pats, Brookline businessman Robert Kraft bought the team he was a season ticket holder for.

In the 20 years the Pats have been in the Kraft ownership they have been to the Playoffs almost every year, been to the SB six times with 3 Lombardis.

Yada yada yada

 

 

But you know all that you say?

 

In Boston we take our sports seriously and we take our losses hard?don?t speak the name of David Tyffffffffffffffingrrreeee in my hearing please.

 

But we do believe in the next man up philosophy in our case its

Next team up

Pitchers and catchers report in 23 days

After all

We

Have

A

Title to defend

 

 

thanks for the visit and the comments. Don't forget to check out Lanz right next door

 

 

looks like several question marks or dicks are gaining access to

I'm Just Saying.....

I’m Just Saying…..

 

Scott and his wife (Raye) would like to wish all the Gabbers and their families a Happy and Healthy New Year.


Now I can see why the day after the NFL season ends it is called Black Monday as 5 coaches and one General Manager were let go by their teams. Here is a list of the casualties:

  • Detroit firing Jim Schwartz was a no-brainer. This team has talent. They have one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL and the best, if not one of the greatest wide receivers of all-time, in Calvin Johnson. To go 7-9 says just how bad of a coach, or better yet, just how bad his staff was. They started out this year 6-3 and then went 1-6 which should never have happened. Maybe he just could not get the best out of the rest of the players as evidenced by the increase in turnovers during the last seven games of the season.

 

  • Why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hired Greg Schiano as head coach is a mystery. He was only 68-67 as the head football coach at Rutgers. Maybe it was because he was a disciplinarian. But for whatever reason it just didn’t work in Tampa Bay. Greg was not a good fit for the team as players complained about his militaristic ways. Oh, and could anyone remember when Josh Freeman was a decent quarterback?

 

  • As for GM Mark Dominick co-chairman Bryan Glazer summed it up in his statement:

“The results over the past two years have not lived up to our standards and we believe the time has come to find a new direction. Mark has been a valued member of our organization for two decades and we respect the passion he showed for the Buccaneers during his time here.”

 

  •  Mike Shanahan was let go by the Washington Redskins because he could not come close to the success he had with the Denver Broncos. Lets be honest, that’s the reason the Redskins hired him in the first place. But how can you be successful when your bosses boss is a meddling fool. Even Joe Gibbs return (2004-2007) didn’t help. It won’t matter who the next head coach is because as long as Dan Snyder is the owner this team ain’t going nowhere. Just for the record, since Snyder has been the owner (1999) Washington has gone 104-136 in 15 seasons, made the playoffs 4 times and have had 4 seasons above .500. Also 7 seasons with 10 or more loses.

 

  • When you can’t finish games when you lead with 52 seconds left (5 games lost), there might be a reason for your firing as a head coach, and that is what happen to the Minnesota Vikings Leslie Frazier. What’s even more amazing is how they went from 10-6 last year to finish 5-10-1 this year. It didn’t help that the Vikings had one of the worst defenses, giving up 480 points. Oh, can anyone say QB Chris Ponder??

  

  • I can see why Cleveland Browns fans can get so frustrated with their team. The owners are stupid. How can you fire someone who, when hired last year, was talked about as being the brightest young coaches in the NFL. But that’s the Cleveland Browns, as they let go Rob Chudzinski after just one season. And, don’t feel sorry for Rob as he is still owed $10.5 million by the Browns. This is just Cleveland’s management team with no sense of direction. Hey Cleveland fans, do you think your team is cursed???

 

For the record I am picking the Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl. They might not have the best defense, but they sure can outscore anyone.

Luck of the Draw
Category: NFL
Tags: NFL Denver Broncos 49ers Patriots Colts

Why is Denver the number one team in football this season? The answer is easy. . . . . . schedule.  The first 8 games of the season are against opponents with a combined record of 16-30 (obviously not counting any further defeats or victories achieved by the Colts and Redskins over the next two weeks). In the first 6 games not only have the Broncos played, and man-handled, two of the weaker teams within their own division (Oakland and Jacksonville) but have played only teams from the pathetic NFC East. Not a true test of skill based on division performance thus far.

Denver homers will argue “hey we can only play the hand we are dealt,” and I am not disagreeing. Well, not directly. I am simply suggesting that the miraculous play we are seeing isn’t necessarily iconic, but instead a result of “luck of the draw”.  That being said, Denver’s second half will be a better litmus test when looking to assess the Broncos true claim of prominence.

With a four game stretch that includes the jaw-dropping Chiefs defense (twice), a much improved New England defense, and a stout Titans defense, the Denver offense will be tested at a level unlike any thus far.  Unfortunately, this is only ¼ of their overall schedule.

Prior to the season it was believed by some (Fox and ESPN analysts’) that it would be the weather that would eventually slow Peyton down. Well it just so happens that the “coldest” portion of their schedule consists of only four games:  @New England (Nov 24th), @Kansas City (Dec 1st), vs. Tennessee (Dec 8th), and vs. San Diego (Dec 12th). Their remaining schedule sees games in Houston (retractable roof) & Oakland (Winter lows usually only see the mid 40s).  Given two of the “coldest” weather games are at home these should not play a factor because playing surface and equipment will be familiar. Therefore, two games have the potential for really cold weather impacts (outside of heavy Denver snowfall). However, these two games fall within the 4 games previously mentioned and will not give “easy” opponents any advantages.

Further still, some want to argue scheduling favoritism. At first glance, it seems to be an unwritten rule that the NFL attempts to toughen the schedules of former playoff teams. Teams like the Texans, Bengals, 49ers, Packers, Seahawks, Falcons, Colts and Redskins seemed to receive such “favoritism” while, the Broncos, Ravens, Patriots and Vikings didn’t.  Although the NFL claims indiscriminate selection some Manning detractors spout claims of preferential treatment. While these claims hold little merit it is interesting to wonder; should the NFL adopt a scheduling system totally reliant on opponent strength as opposed to their current format: 6 games against division opponents, 4 games against an entire division within its conference, 4 games against an entire division in the opposing conference, & 2 intraconference games based on last year’s standings (e.g. 1st place will play 1st place)?
