We Fly High, No Lie. You Know This

All the talk on the street has been about the Giants’ pass rush getting to Brady.  They are right; kind of.  The real key to this game will be forcing Brady into 7-step drops and giving the pass rush the time they need to get to him.  The Giants safeties, Rolle, Grant and Phillips, will have to step up in the box and make tackles early to force Brady to take some shots deep.  If the Pats are able to dink and dunk all day the Giants pass rush will be a non-factor.  The Patriots had the 20th ranked rush attack this year, and Brady effectively replaced their run game by dominating on passes under 10 yards.  I’d look up the stats, but there are bigger things to worry about right now; namely, scotch…. and soda.

Everyone is expecting offense this game.  Maybe.  I think Belichick and Coughlin turn this into a throwback battle between two franchises that made their mark with defense.  Plaxico was right, just 4 years too late:

Giants 23 Pats 17

The Tim Parker Super Bowl Post

The Super Bowl Yayyyy!!!!! Nothing beats seeing two teams I absolutely despise play each other in the biggest game of the season. Thanks to Tim Tebow using the power of the almighty Jesus Christ he beat a rapist and gave Tom Brady and his Pats had an easy road to the Super Bowl (did any one honestly think Shane Joe Falco Flacco could take a team to the Super Bowl???). Then there’s the Giants. They have been playing PERFECT football the past five weeks. Yes, perfect, much like the Patriots record in 2008 going into Super Bowl 42 against the same New York Giants. Despite my hatred for both these teams it should be an exciting game. Even if it isn’t I’ll have at least 40 buffalo wings and 24 Budweisers so I’ll be a winner come Sunday.

On to the keys to winning Super Bowl 46

NFL Picks: Divisional Round

Last Week: 2-2

Sooooooooo here’s all you need to know from the first round of the playoffs………the Falcons suck, the Texans-Bengals game was the most boring game I’ve ever seen (until the National Championship game of course), the Saints enjoy scoring as many points as possible and the most important thing, Tim Tebow is in fact Jesus Christ himself.

New Orleans (-3.5) San Francisco

When the lines first came out this week I looked at this one said haha Saints and moved on. Then I started to look into it a little bit more.  A lot of things point to the 49ers in this one. They play good defense, manage games well, and most importantly get to play the Saints at home. If this game was in New Orleans the Saints would be 8, maybe 9 point favorites. Take the Saints out of the SuperDome, I mean Mercedes-Benz Superdome or whatever the hell they are calling it and they are a very, very different team. The Saints went 5-3 on the road this year including loses to the Rams and Bucs, two of the worst teams in the league. The 49ers meanwhile went 7-1 at home losing only a heartbreaker to the Cowboys all the way back in week 2.

I doubt anyone read all that (I know we have been out of college a while so I wouldn’t expect anyone to be able to read more than 2 sentences anymore) but I’ve kind of managed to talk myself into the Niners. The Saints are realllllllllly good but on the road they scare me. Sure Alex Smith is playing QB and sure they have a rookie head coach, but I think their defense will step up and control the pass happy Saints.

I meant to somehow incorporate this picture...It's just too good.

49ers 23 Saints 20

NFL Picks: Week 13

Last Week
Straight up: 13-3
Spread: 11-5

Straight up: 119-57
Spread: 89-78-9

Solid week 12 for the kid. I’ll take 11-5 any week. Sadly, most of my money ONCE AGAIN was on the New York fucking Jets. Sure they won, but they didn’t cover the spread so who cares!!!!!! Well, I kinda do since I had them in survivor, but anyway, could the scene below be the Jets???? Nick Nolte as Sexy Rexy and Tony as Mark?????? With all of Marky Mark’s terrible passes and their tremendous ability to never cover the spread I’m getting realllll sketched out at the New York Jets.

Bill Belichick: “Are You Not Entertained?”

A few days ago, Patriots fans where celebrating the fact that they would be watching football come September. Back would be Tom Brady and his glorious locks of hair. Back would be Wes Welker and his Napoleon complex. Back would be oft-outspoken, overrated wideout Chad Ochocinco (get it? He doesn’t conform to our norms guys!) and overpaid and slightly psychotic defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. Wait, what?

The New England Patriots have acquired wide receiver Chad Ochocinco after he accepted a restructured three-year contract from the Patriots, a source told ESPN.com’s John Clayton on Thursday.

Ochocinco was scheduled to make $6.35 million for the Bengals this year. The Patriots wanted him to restructure his contract for salary-cap purposes. (via)

Before we get to Haynesworth, let’s go over this one real quick. There is a lot to like here. Here you’ve got a guy who speaks his mind and tries to be Mr. Big Shot, and now he’s restructuring his contract and agreeing to take less money to play with the Patriots. I like that. We’ve seen what Belichick can do with an ill-tempered wide receiver (RE: Moss, Randy) and there is no reason to think that he didn’t capture lightning in a bottle again. If anything this just shows that despite all the tweeting and celebration antics, maybe Ochocinco deep down inside just wants to win. There isn’t anything wrong with that and if anyone can bring out that fire, it’s Bill Belichick. Remember, before Moss got all bitchy and found his way back to Minnesota, he was at the top of his game. The Pats offense was explosive and they were on their way to a perfect season before some gay basher got in their way.

So when it comes to Ochocinco, let’s give him a year. He’s already been spotted at the practice field, getting cozy with Tom Brady. Somewhere, Carson Palmer is crying into his cheese sandwhich.

The Daily Drive – 5/25/2011

The Daily Drive is a daily (duh) post of all the prominent things going on in the sports world we didn’t cover, and anything else we might want to share with you. We got so caught up in the Rapture that we forgot all about this website. I still can’t find any of my pants. 

Well it’s been some time, so let’s start things off to get you back in your good graces. Michelle Hunziker, Swiss model, took a swim.(via)

-The Vancouver Canucks are going to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 1994. Last night they beat the San Jose Sharks in double overtime in quite the dramatic fashion. First, they tied the game with 13 seconds left in the 3rd period. What followed in overtime was definitely wacky, and the kind of thing that would only happen to me in NHL’11.

If anything that clip just drives home the point that any of us could call games on TV.

-Huge win last night for the hottest team in the NL East: The Florida Marlins. After a sexy showing by Ricky No-No against the defending World Series Champions the Philadelphia Phillies San Francisco Giants, the Fish are game behind the Phils, who lost last night to the, checks math, yup, Cincinnati Reds.

-Good news though Phillies fans: Jose Contreras is back! I know, I thought he had been kidnapped and held ransom by some South American drug gang too. Roy Halladay takes the mound tonight.

NY Mets issues, Heat one step closer to becoming the Anti-Christ, and Tom Brady’s flailing hands, after the jump. Read more of this post

The Daily Drive – April 12, 2011

The Daily Drive is a daily (duh) post of all the prominent things going on in the sports world we didn’t cover, and anything else we might want to share with you. Like this free iPad!!! All you have to do is fill out this quick survey.

– A sad afternoon for my Blues, as Chelsea FC was defeated 2-1 by Manchester United. Wayne Rooney and the Reds move on to the Champions League Semifinals along with Barcelona.

The New York Rangers are going to be facing Michal Neuvirth, winner of 5 out of his last 6, to start the NHL Playoffs. Meanwhile, the Rags will be opening up the season in Sweden. Lucky bastards.

-While the Philadelphia Phillies ace’s, plus Joe Blanton, get all the press, it’s the bullpen that is quietly carrying the team.

– When Tom Brady cried on SportsCenter over the weekend, a lot of people probably figured that there was no way he could look like more of a pussy. Via Tauntr.com, the Internet again proves it can grant wishes. EDIT:  I couldn’t get the video to work, so click on the link. My apologies, so here is a picture of the hottest girl you’ve seen today.

After the jump we’ve got NHL Draft Lottery excitement, Derek Jeter’s poor start, and my new girlfriend.
