Tags: NFL Super Bowl Tom Brady New England Patriots New York Giants Football Predictions Shit Boston Guys Say

 
Yep, Tom Brady is going to get a fourth one...

It's been a long time since we had a blow-out "Super Bowl"...Well, it's time to end that...A bunch of the talking heads are getting on the Giants train..."They have a better defense."..."They're more balanced."..."Eli is playing great."...They're in love with the Giants....The Giants who barely won their shitty, overrated division...

Well screw that...The Patriots are going to roll...And when Eli goes bad, he goes really bad...And I think his hot streak is done...I'm looking for him to turn it over 3 times, to that Patriots bend but don't break defense, that everyone has been shitting on all year...

Brady is going to chuck it to everyone...Branch, Hernandez, Woodhead, big game for Welker...Gronk, big first half, while he's all shot up! Even the invisible man, Chad Ochocinco! And Ben Jarvis-Green-Ellis will have a nice game as well...
Patriots roll! Win by double digits!

Take the Pats, minus the points...Fuck, they'll win the coin toss too!

And here's some more Boston love...



Later, The Beeze.

Rings

I find it a bit ironic that, when comparing quarterbacks Tom Brady and Eli Manning, Brady is revered as a lock for the Hall of Fame once that his illustrious career has ended, yet it is being insinuated that Manning will not be joining him unless he wins a second ring in the Super Bowl on Sunday.  You see Brady has won three rings already and Eli only one, as if that has anything to do with how great a quarterback is.  Football sportswriters tend to ignore that the Super Bowl has only been around since 1967, and that there are a slew of great quarterbacks who retired long before there ever was a Super Bowl.  It is also ironic that, if the Giants do win tomorrow, Manning will have won both of his rings by besting Brady and thereby making Brady 0-2 when facing Eli Manning. 

Speaking of 1967 and the Super Bowl, it means that tomorrow’s game will be the 46th one ever and that I have the dubious distinction of having witnessed each and every one of them.  I do not know if this makes me a true football fan or if it just means that I am really getting old.  For the record, my favorite game ever was Super Bowl III, where Joe Namath and his AFL New York Jets upset the heavily favored NFL Baltimore Colts, thereby leading to the merger of the two leagues.  It was an event of distinction especially to me because I lived in Houston at the time and was a fan of the then almost ignored American Football League, the league that was the little step-sister until after Super Bowl III.  As an aside, we AFL fans knew that the Jets were going to win that game because we knew how good the AFL teams had become, and we realized that Namath was confident that his team was going to win.

While we are discussing Joe Namath, look at his statistics and you will wonder how the former University of Alabama quarterback ever made it into the NFL Hall of Fame.  That one Super Bowl victory changed the face of professional football so much that Namath had to be admitted no matter how weak his career statistics actually were.  His victory in Super Bowl III was the real milestone in the development of today’s NFL.

Monday morning will be sad but also ultimately glad because, while it marks the end of the football season, it also will usher in the beginning of baseball and spring training (which starts the end of February).  As an aside, I can remember every World Series since 1959, so baseball has been in my life even longer than football.  Have a great time watching Super Bowl XLVI, and may your favorite team prevail and earn their rings.

Sorry, Adrian... That's Business

This from Ben Maller @ Yahoo!

Nobody wants to hear a rich man whine, but this NFL star brings up a pretty good argument.

 

Adrian Peterson hatched what seemed like a good plan on Twitter to change his Minnesota Vikings uniform number from 28 to 23. That was last week. Now the star running back has changed his mind, blaming the power brokers behind pro football merchandise sales for spoiling his idea.

Peterson told his 212,000-plus Twitter followers that he "received a call" from an unnamed source informing him he'd have to buy all the jerseys that have been made with his No. 28 on them if he wanted to change his number. The Vikings star tweeted the amount of money"blew my mind!!!!!"

How much would it cost?

A cool $1,000,000 -- according to Peterson.

That's when the franchise running back unloaded on what he feels is an injustice to star players. Pointing out to his cyber minions that he's among the leaders in NFL jersey sales, Peterson complained that he doesn't "even get paid a million dollars" from his individual Nike sponsorship deal.

 

​Sorry, Adrian...

​Sorry, Ben...

Not a good argument...

​Obviously neither of you have run a business...

​I have...

​It doesn't work like that...

​The NFL and its retailers invested a million bucks in #28...

​You wanna change your number...

You can eat the jerseys...

​Not bad with a little ketchup...

Only the Super Bowl Counts...

On the seventh day, God rested...

 

And on the eighth day...

 

He created the Super Bowl...

 

You see...

 

There was absolutely no life prior to the Super Bowl...

 

At least...

 

That’s what the NFL would like you believe...

 

The Patriots and Giants meet Sunday in Super Bowl XLVI...

 

Apparently...

 

There were no prior championships prior to the Super Bowl...

 

This is all we have, isn’t it???

 

Oh yeah...

 

There was football before the Super Bowl...

 

But no championships, right???

 

Just the regular season, right???

 

Then they just stopped playing, right???

 

Until next year, right???

 

Nothing mattered back then, did it???

 

Did they even keep stats back then, did they???

 

I heard they had some pretty swell players...

 

 

But they really don’t count, do they???

 

It was just a rehearsal, right???

 

After all...

 

Even if they did have championship games back then...

 

Since they weren’t SUPER BOWL titles...

 

They don’t count in the overall total...

 

At least that is what the NFL would like you to believe...

 

And what the media would like you to believe...

 

I never hear them talk about the good ole days...

 

The only things that are count are...

 

Super Bowl titles...

 

And Super Bowl appearances...

 

So and so has the most Super Bowl titles...

 

Such and such has the most Super Bowl appearances...

 

Detroit has never been to a Super Bowl...

 

And I guess that means they have zero titles, right???

 

Those games in ‘35, ‘52, ‘53, and ‘57...

 

They were just post season scrimmages, right???

 

Practice games, right???

 

 

We talkin’ ‘bout practice...

 

Not a game...

 

Not a game...

 

Not a game...

 

We talkin’ ‘bout practice...

 

Okay...

 

‘Nuffa dat...

 

And in one of those practices...

 

Way back before Pearl Harbor...

 

In ‘40...

 

The Chicago Bears bombed the Washington Redskins, 73-0...

 

But that didn’t count...

 

‘Cus it wasn’t in the Super Bowl...

 

And they were just messin’ around, weren’t they???

 

They even had a scrimmage go into overtime...

 

That was back in ‘57...

 

 

I think it was some actor named Don Ameche...

 

He scored the “so-called” winning touchdown...

 

And they stopped playing just like that...

 

But it didn’t matter, did it???

 

Because the game wasn’t named the Super Bowl...

 

Nobody cares about that stuff back then any more...

 

‘Cus sacking the quarterback was legal back then...

 

Now you can only pull the flag attached to his belt...

 

So just like the old AAFC and AFL...

 

Those games are pigments of our imaginations...

 

Yes, I said pigments...

 

As in pigskin...

 

But I guess if you count those scrimmages...

 

Or practice games...

 

The Packers have...

 

Thirteen championships...

 

But nobody really counts that high, do they???

 

And da Bears have nine...

 

But the first eight were insignifcant...

 

I guess we can’t give credit where credit is due...

 

Cus’ they weren’t in “The Big Game”...

 

 

That’s right...

 

I don’t think I can legally say...

 

S-p-r B-wl...

 

Cus I didn’t pay the NFL to say it...

 

I guess I don’t count either...

A Blond walks into Lucas Oil Stadium.....
Category: NFL
Tags: Giants Patriots NFL

A guy decides to bring his new blonde girlfriend to a football game. After the game is over, he asks her if she liked the game.

She replies: "Oh it was great, I loved watching those men in tight clothes, but there is one thing I don't understand."

"What did you not understand ?"

And the blonde says: "Well, at the beginning of the game, both teams flipped a quarter to see who would kick off first. Then the rest of the game everybody was yelling get the quarter back, get the quarter back, get the quarter back. So I thought to myself, gosh it's just a quarter!"

Oldharry and Shorty's unbiased Supah Bowl preview

 

The way the Giants have been playing it is obvious they are at least the hotter team if not the more talented. Tom Coughlin has the Giants peaking at just the right time, much the way he did in the post season leading up to SB 42. This team has better receivers and a much better QB in seasoned veteran Eli Manning. The 2007 version of Eli was good, this version is, dare I say it….elite!

 

The Giants 9-7 regular season was an up and down affair with a solid 6-2 start including a 24-20 win over the Pats in Foxboro. Eli lead his team down the field late in the 4th quarter for the win.

 

The Giants had to scramble at the end to win the division and grab the 4th seed but they were in and hosted a Falcons team and won impressively 24-2 .

 

A very impressive win in Green Bay over the once beaten Packers 37-20 put them in the NFC Championship game with San Francisco. The Giants continued the roll to the Super Bowl with that hard fought  20-17 OT win in the rain.

and now the Giants have won 5 straight.

The Patriots earned a first round bye and in the Divisional round sent Denver home  45-10

The AFC Championship was a war with the Pats avoiding OT when Myra Kraft tip the FG attempt sending it wide left, giving the Pats a 23-20 win

 

Overall the Giants numbers look like this 12-7 record, points per game, scoring 25 while giving up 23

The Patriots numbers look like this, 15-3 record , points per game, scoring  32 while giving up 21

 

Common foes were , Jets, Buffalo, Miami, Philadelphia, Washington, Dallas

The Giants record vs the common foes was 6-3 with 2 losses to Washington and one to Philadelphia

 

The Patriots record vs common foes was  8-1, the loss to Buffalo

That’s all for stats, Black Bandit did say earlier in the week that he was bring history and Stats in his preview and I don’t think I can compete with his objectivity.

 

That being said I give you Oldharry and Shorty’s surprising SB picks

 

-The Patriots will win the toss and defer.

-Eli will throw the ball 45-50 times for 300+yds and 3 TD’s as the Patriots choose to take away the run and play deep safeties forcing Eli to dink and dunk while hoping he makes a mistake or two.

-Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis will rush 20 times for 80 yds and a TD

-Tom Brady will work the middle with the no huddle for 280 yds and a pair of TD’s

-Wes Welker and Victor Cruz will each have 10 catches.

- the Patriots defense will score a TD

Laurence Tynes will miss a 51 yard FG.... wide left, with under a minute to play and the Patriots will escape with a 28-27 win

Tom Brady will be the MVP because QB's are usually the MVP,

Robert Kraft will cry and lift the Lombardi high and say, "This is for you Myra"

and a blond will say,"Gosh....it's only a quarter!"

 

thanks for reading, commenting and indulging the homerism
