How long will it take the ???experts??? of our beloved media to realize that in today???s football world a quarterback no longer needs 3-4 years experience to lead an NFL team?
College today is no longer the 3 yards and a cloud of dust game it use to be. I hope guys like Parcells and Gibbs have learned that but I???m not sure they understand it.
If you follow the college game like I do you could see Ben Rothlisberger and Philip Rivers were both light years ahead of Eli Manning and would not be surprised by Rothlisberger???s early success, or Rivers winning ways in SoCal. The three most efficient QB???s right now are P. Manning, Tony Romo and Rivers, case closed.
Here is what I saw this week???
I have been telling you the 49ers have the makings of a good club. They have won 3 in a row and are just a game back of Seattle in the NFC West. After they beat the Seahawks 20-14 Sunday. Frank Gore rushed for 212 yards and the 49ers are suddenly playing some good D. This is the surprise team of the year.
The NBA seems to be in some sort of alternate universe right now. Things are wide open, which is unusual for the norms of the so-called "best players in the world".
Utah has one loss, and a five-game winning streak. Miami, though without Shaq, is struggling mightily. Dallas started 0-4, and has won five straight games.
Orlando has seven wins in ten games. These facts aside, the league holds one team that is the most hallowed and, at the same time, the most perplexing: the Boston Celtics.
Just to start by looking at the roster, you start with a few growing trends in the 'L'. The Celts have only five players that are six-foot-nine or taller, and only one seven-footer. The average age of the team is 24, with only five players being born before 1980. Also, five player on the roster never saw college. The average size: six-foot-six, 220 pounds. These are trends seeping into a team full of retired jersey numbers.
I need help, I really like sports, but I???m at the end of my rope and I don???t know where to turn! I watch sports shows and I read the sports section of my local paper plus I listen to sports talk radio when I???m driving in my car and I just can't take it anymore!
What if USC runs the table, what if Notre Dame beats USC, and what if Florida wins out? What if Arkansas runs the table and wins the SEC? What if Rutgers goes undefeated? How about Wisconsin, their only loss is to Michigan. So if Michigan beats Ohio State Wisconsin is #2 right?
What if Notre Dame wins out and Michigan beats Ohio State, that means Notre Dame who???s only loss was to Michigan is #2, right? How come Ohio State???s win at Texas is so good, Texas gave up 40+ points last week and LOST to Kansas State?
