Sports Bio

From my name you can tell I'm a diehard Jaguars fan. Original season ticket holder, even though, I no longer live in Jacksonville. Also, life long Reds fan. I, also, follow the Dayton Flyers, Georgia Bulldogs, and the New York Islanders (various reasons for each, and good stories which we'll save for another time).

NFL Playoff Pickem Round 2: Hand the Ref the Ball Edition

My picks:

Bengals by 3
Packers by 7 (lock)
Buccaneers by 4
Bills by 3
Passer: Josh Allen
Rusher: Jones (Green Bay)
Receiver: Chase (Bengals)
Player with interception: Douglas (Green Bay)

It's not a prop, but my "bold" prediction this week is that Henry gains less than 100 yards (He'll be effective just not over 100). I think he splits carries first off, and the time off (and coming off injury) will keep him from being 100 percent. Plus, I think the gals try to make Tannehill beat them by stacking the box. He might end up with something like 18 carries for 80 yards but it won't be 32 carries for 217 yards type of day. Just my two cents which isn't worth a nickel, so there's that. lol

Just missed an even bigger week last week if the Ravens would have held on/lol. Still have no chance to win it all, and this is the toughest week of the year to predict (who's mailing it in, who's playing starters, etc). And yes, for the second week in a row, I'm not picking my beloved clown show Jaguars (the Dolts need this win and the Jags need the loss). Just getting some momentum for the playoffs for me (just like the CFL, not so good regular season, then win the playoff edition, fingers crossed)

I Investigated Bonds and Clemens. Yes, They Belong in Cooperstown

No. No they don't. If you commit a crime, and the prosecutor decides not to prosecute and/or allows others to commit the same crime without repercussions doesn't mean you didn't commit a crime. The "everyone else was doing it" argument doesn't make it ok to do it. If you are a "true" hall of famer then it doesn't matter everyone else was doing it. The "look at the past transgressions" of some who are in, like Ty Cobb, doesn't matter either. Cobb didn't cheat the game. He may have been a "bad" dude, but he didn't cheat the game. Memorabilia from Bonds and Clemens are in the Hall. That's good enough. I have a bigger issue with Rose not being in (and he broke one of the cardinal rules). My problem with the Rose issue is that he committed those transgressions after his playing days (when he was a manager), and no one has ever accused him of doing any gambling on baseball when he was a player. I get that he is banned from baseball and therefore, not eligible. But, if he had gone into a different job after baseball he would be in the Hall right now. It doesn't matter what Bonds, Clemens, or McGwire did after baseball, what they did happened while they were players and had a direct impact on the criteria for which they are judged.

For the first time in the history of this Pick'em, I'm not picking the Jaguars. Between injuries, lack of depth, stinking, Patriots needing the win, and 19 players on the Covid list, I just can't do it. Of course, that means they'll win/lol. And I'm ok with that.

CFL Playoffs Pick 'Em, Final Standings

Too bad I couldn't do this well in the regular season. LOL.

And rcade, it would probably be Ticatsnumberone (even if I picked against them in the Grey Cup). I was a big fan of them back in the day when Clements from Notre Dame was the QB.

ic23b, don't really see a big difference in picking in the top spot this year, unlike last year. But, having said that, means it's even more important to pick well (which I have zero confidence in Baalke doing that). We'll see. Looks like Caldwell, former Lions coach, is one of the front runners for our new head ball coach. Sort of like the possibility, but not 100 percent on board with it, yet.

Coach Kicks Kicker

Seemed the whole time the media was out to get him. So many articles that were trying to put him in a bad light of things that happen on most teams, and especially, on one's that are losing and trying to change the culture. But, the video's from the bar in Ohio, embarrassed the franchise. Now, this. Which, those outside of Jacksonville, have to understand that Lambo is a stand up guy, and did a lot in the community, this wasn't just some washed up kicker. The fact that the team knew about this since the incident and then the videos is not a good look. The next coach needs to be "squeeky" clean without any baggage (so, Bienemy at KC, is out). It should be a sought out position, though. High draft pick, a lot of cap space for free agency, franchise QB in place, a low bar set by predecessor, and a owner with deep pockets. The one negative, GM Baalke, which could be a big negative to certain candidates.
