RETURN OF THE BACK

No one man should have all that power
The clock’s ticking, I just count the hours
Stop tripping, I’m tripping off the power – Kanye West

Keep it simple, run it up the middle. NFL teams may soon nod their heads in agreement dear hearts. This draft is bursting with running back talent, it feels like we’re back in ’94.

Power, known in football circles when an explosive RB blasts through the gaps the O-line creates for him, and pounds through any of the D-lineman, or linebackers in front of him. Smash mouth football at it’s core. The same style of football I lovingly named the Big Ten, Big Boring for seasons.

Over the last 10-ish seasons in the NFL, 15-ish for college, the shift in popularity of teams favoring the spread offense, which features slot receivers and quick passing plays maximizing yardage, is ultimately the counter to power, and usually more exciting to take in on your 50+ inches of pleasure.

This draft may have offensive coordinators shaking up their schemes.

The beauty of power running is the simplicity, which makes it straightforward. Ground and Pound. 

  • Leonard Fournette
  • Dalvin Cook
  • Christian McCaffrey
  • Alvin Kamara
  • D’Onta Foreman

These are a few names who are hopeful to have Commish Goodie Bear, give them a rose jersey, and announce the home team where their destiny awaits.

Speaking of drafting, you caught me… Yes I watched The Combine. I was a little surprised McCaffrey ran a faster forty than Fournette. Apparently the latter weighed in five LBS more than he played in college. Oops… Muscle weighs more than fat, we know that!

My favorite position was a standout… Tight End. We know I love a nice one. With the schemes NFL teams have been running -Panthers, Saints, Pattie Pats, Cowboys- a solid TE is needed in the modern game. I love every second of it. In my little opinion, the most versatile and generally underrated position on a team.

There’s also a well-known veteran RB who may be willing to dock his ship with the Vikings to join another team – AP, Adrian Peterson. He’s feeling a little unappreciated by his fellow crewmen, or maybe he’s feeling bored again.

We’ve heard the saying, stand up for something or you will fall for anything. If you kneel for something, will you fall standing up? It’s okay dear, you’re not the only one shaking your head. Colin Kaepernick, professional National Anthem protestor and former semi-QB for the hot-mess San Fran 49’ers,has decided, since his recently updated status is FA, Free Agent, he will no longer kneel during the National Anthem. He performed his duties -eye roll-

Can’t trick us silly Cap! We know this was a PR move his agent suggested, and it’s burning him.

Another week, and not boring… Thank you off-season Gods.

Cheers,

C’EST LA VIE

 

Ready. Aim. Fire. 29906170001_5283644839001_usp-nfl-nfc-divisional-green-bay-packers-at-dalla

What we witnessed Sunday dear hearts, when Mr Rodgers walked into Dallas’ neighborhood with his fire-arm. Dusting off the Cowboys, and their non-defense, like the snow he shovels out of his driveway.

This weekend of NFL divisional playoffs demonstrated the key to win is, have a solid QB. Big Ben, Matty Ice, Tommy Boy, and definitely not that big Houston bust, Brocky Boy.

Let’s give Dak credit, for performing so terribly in the first half, his stats nearly mirrored A-Rodg’s. Try to stay calm that HC Garrett doesn’t want to officially name who his starter will be next season. If he did, what fun would that be? We would have less to question and / or talk about. Perspective darlings, always keep it in mind.

I noticed the ‘boys MLB Sean Lee can’t play all corners of the field and continue to drop back. He definitely gave it a good shot. Jerry needs to learn from another owner how to make your GM get you two corners. Hint, tear off two corners of a napkin and pass along. Brilliant

Lay-Ve-On-it i

The new femme verbiage for Leveon Bell, the Steelers running beast, or RB. Good description of why he needs to touch the ball when the other Steelers threat, Antonio Brown isn’t posting a live feed in the team’s postgame huddle.

Speaking of the real NFL reality star Travis Kelce, his Irish temper flared up. Can you blame him? If one call made the decision of an outcome for all playoff games this weekend, the holding penalty against the Chiefs OT for the 2-point conversation was it.

Oh, and the Pattie pat pats won. (Eye roll) Some habits die hard. So dear football gods, this is my request for a Packers / Steelers SB.

Blame it on the Rams for leading the charge. Here comes a another team to my dear city. url

I have zero respect for a team who blew smoke in the eyes of their beloved fans, taking a page out of the former Baltimore Colts, (pulling off an unexpected overnight relocate in ’84 from Baltimore to Indy) how to relocate and make your fan base loathe you, overnight.

Since we believe in discussing unfair advantages here, lets flip to the business side. This move was genius.
Depending what personal beliefs you subscribe to, capitalism may be a pretty or ugly word. This move was all about the capital. The starter 30K seat stadium, along with gate receipts, (concessions, merchandise, tickets and that suite life) will be incredible numbers for not only the team, also The League.

Remember dear hearts, NFL teams split their revenue, which is the key in all of this craziness, equating to a solid strategic move for The League hitting that $25 BILLION revenue target Goodie Bear wants to achieve by 2027.

In short, we saw a Billionaire playboy who was married for 54 years, leave his long-term old thing, for the smoking hot new thing, and eventually making his bank account grow.

I have a little feeling, the Chargers will find a way to be the next Hard Knocks team.

LIGHT IT UP 

Hold on to the end, that’s what I intend to do. I’m hopelessly devoted to you

Olivia Newton John

Last post I caught us up on the Chiefs making the Raiders look like they were back in  2013, my favorite position, how the Heisman voters made me a very happy lady, and one very Lame Kiffin. 

Last Thursday night, who needed Christmas lights as the Seahawks lit up our homes.

74a454eae8cd32fd288ca08a0fd68574

Would have been shameless fun for the lights to go out, like another game we remember, to see if those uni’s would glow. How fun would that be? Glow football… I have fantasies too you know.

Monday night, Redskins corner Josh Norman was definitely 1:1 with no safety help, like Jay Z said, and that’s not a compliment. Cam Newton looked like he did two seasons ago with his impressive performance. Distributing the ball to one of my favorite tight ends, Greg Olsen and passing deep to Ted Ginn Jr (he’s still around?!). They came and they slayed.  

With the Redskins out of the playoff picture, I’m not positive their QB Kirk Cousins will receive the payday he’s been yelling about. Do we need to remind him that playing football is a privilege, like he mentioned in the little speech he gave while in college at MSU?

What rhymes with 2016? Oh, and sixteen.

When I feel a little sad for being a Jet’s fan, I’m reminded of the Browns. They found themselves on my naughty list this year, as well as a few other lovely unwatchable teams, like the Jags, 49’ers, Jets, Rams and The Bears.

Oh and one more made my naughty list this year, Non-playoff bowl games.

The Bowl S**t games, (giggle or roll your eyes. I like to give you options dear heart, you’re welcome), give us something to talk about, and those people who give us the pre-season Top 25, something to base their rankings off of, and not do their homework.

We know the disguise these BS games stand for, Show Me the Money.

img_4317I don’t appreciate the attempts of clever statements that are just plain dirty. I have to nurse a glass of neat, after hearing, people want to watch! It gives the players something to play for!

You’re telling me that a 20-year old really wants to take a vacation to Boise, ID to play one last game in the Potato Bowl? Oh, and the coaches do too? It’s like this guy last week who told me he has ocean front property in Arizona. I’m about to roll on the floor in a fit of giggles, without someone tickling me.

Want to know what these little bowls also provide? Ca$h money to the other teams in their conference. Similar to the NFL and their revenue sharing model, colleges and universities are guilty of sharing their money too, honey.

A long, long time ago (2007) when Boise State won over Oklahoma in the Fiesta bowl, all non-big boy school conference commissioners decided it would be a fine idea to pull a Robin Hood, and distribute the proceeds across ALL of the non-big boy schools… WTF.

Yes, another what the football moment.

Suddenly that milli was not going to the team who actually won the game, but Southern Mississippi State, Appalachian State, and (insert here) University we had never ever heard of.

The only BS I licked my lips over and considered canceling dinner plans for, San Diego State vs Houston, wasn’t worth it.

In more college football-related news, now that Lame Kiffin is out, Sark is back, as the new Bama OC. Remember, Lame Kiffin’s desire is to be a HC of a school no one wants to watch. Seems about right.

Oh, the millennial generation is being selfish again, or this is what some old school football voices are saying.

Several coaches, and others have openly criticized LSU’s Leonard Fournette and Christian McCaffery of Stanford, for skipping their BS games, to prep for their next move in their lives, going pro.

Let me pose the real question, who’s the real selfish one in this debate, player or coach?

I find these comments easy to say, from men who’s bodies aren’t beat up after every game, and have a little cash in the bank to provide for those they love or want to love.

It’s a shrewd business move for a player who’s pro career will have an average life of <4 years. Think about that for a moment…

Now, what’s so wrong with an football player doing the same as his coach? That’s being a business-man.

Coaches stretch the truth and leave all the time. Remember when Saban told us he wasn’t leaving the Dolphins for Bama? Silly old non-saint Nick.

79gKCwl50jhaXiXC7-8u8haRp8rq4L1xYI2K1CajfQ8Keep your emotions in check that a player has his own interests in mind, and should after being devoted to his school, and assisting them to victory. LSU and Stanford’s wins were on the backs (pun intended) of Fournette and McCaffery.

Now off Utah I go… ’tis the season to be merry, although that’s not my name.
