Arguments can be made against, but they can't be won
In January I'm going to be a Dad, and I can't wait for my son to be born. And while Dad's-to-be think of all types of crazy things and possibilities for their kids, there's one odd thought that keeps popping into my head - I hope he'll get to see and remember Tom Brady play live. Yes that line is serious, and for an insane sports fan like me, which I presume my kid will be too, it's an actual real thought - I want my kid to get to experience the best of everything in life.
Patriots add further depth in a waiver claim STEAL
The Patriots have claimed troubled WR Michael Floyd off of waivers. The 27 year old Floyd will bring receiver depth on the outside for the Patriots and as a 6’2, 220lb wideout that can run a 4.47 forty he has the ability to be a possible stud ‘X’ receiver. Floyd was recently arrested for a DUI, he has only 33 catches for 446 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games with Arizona this season. He was a former first round pick taken number 13 overall in the 2012 draft. This is an example of another highly talented reclamation project – the type Bill Belichick so seems to love.
Tom Brady keeps climbing up the all time ranks, passing milestones and accumulating wins - while not really even slowing down!
At some point during today's game agaisnt the Jets, probably while it's still in the first quarter, Tom Brady will pass 60,000 career passing yards, being only the 5th player ever to do so (joining in order of the most yards - Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Drew Brees and Dan Marino). His ascension up all of the leaderboards should come as no surprise, as he's played at a high level for such a long time.
2007…The most insane football season I have ever seen…well…we are going to test that theory this season. While we can’t predict 16-0 again, it’s definitely possible. Yes it’s only Week 3 (for them), but have you looked at the schedule? While there are a few hard games on the docket it appears very few that the Patriots could lose. Sure, any given Sunday, yadda yadda yadda, we get it. But let’s be real. What are we looking at (presuming – knock on wood or anything that resembles it – health), 14-2 or 13-3 AT WORST. Probably a good shot at 15-1 or...the ever taunting 16-0 again?
I’ve abstained from officially putting anything ‘out’ about DeflateGate, Tom Brady, the Wells Report and all that Jazz…..but this is just too good and it’s Media Frenzy Gold. Every day between Mother’s Day and today I’ve started to write something and then said – nahhh…..don’t bleed your bias onto a piece. Let’s face it, I’m about as unbiased as the Wells Report. Again I said about, not more probable than not because face itI’m much more open minded, even after I’ve been hitting heavy from the homer soup.
It’s not time to press the panic button yet, but it may be time to start looking at it. Last night the Red Sox lost to the Yankees in what became a close game….but it wasn’t close for most of the night.
Pitching for the Red Sox was ‘Cy Young McGee’, Joe Kelly who is probably out of the Cy Young race already. It’s strange to watch Kelly pitch, his stuff is disgusting, he can rear it up to 100 and has devastating throws, except baseball, especially pitching- like real estate or even just life- is about location, location, location. Kelly can’t seem to locate, so every once in a while (and by that I mean quite often) he throws Home Run Derby meatballs.
At least we get to see if the kid can be good in the Majors
It was a balmy 52 degrees and somehow the rain cleared at perfectly the right time (hey I was running late – 6:10 starts suck). Joe Kelly, the clear Cy Young Forerunner, provided a strong passable borderline start...
Kelly was reaching as high as 100 on the radar gun –be it accurate or not – but he was getting rocked like a 1st Grader being sucker punched by a 5th Grader. He minimized the damage, to only a Pearl Harbor like event. First inning Field Goal – great 3rd out hold. But none of the struggles seem to matter….
This is not to take anything away from the amazing 4th quarter by the San Antonio Spurs (who shot an incredible 14-16 from the field, on 12 assists in the period). Heck, this is not even meant to be an indictment on LeBron. Rather, this is an examination of what the hell did we all see in Game 1 (or hear about in the morning).
