Kirk Cousins Is A Piece Of Shit

Kirk Cousins takes the cake as this weeks POS. In a charity football game yesterday, Cousins shoved a volunteer official after the opposing team was fooling around trying to let the clock run out. With his team trailing and driving down the field, Cousins clearly becomes frustrated by the other teams antics and shoves the ref for not throwing a flag. Does Washington really want this guy representing their franchise?

In local high school hockey action in the 716, a player pushes a ref to the ice after the ref shoved the player towards the penalty box. This is totally acceptable in my eyes. The ref deserved it and I would have done the same thing, especially back in high school.

St. Bonaventure Fans Are Idiots

When there is not much going on in bumfuck Olean, New York, the community rallies around the basketball program. Head coach Mark Schmidt has had great success with the Bonnies, bringing this program back after their scandal from the early 2000’s (Read about the scandal here). Schmidt took the Bonnies to the big dance back in 2012 with the help of big man Andrew Nicholson who is now on the Wizards roster.

Today the Bonnies hosted VCU in what has become quite the rivalry in A-10 play. With the seconds closing down, St Bonaventure hit a 3 pointer with just 0.4 seconds remaining and a one point lead. Unfortunately for the squad, the Bonnies faithful prematurely celebrated and stormed the court with time left on the clock, forcing the refs to call a technical, which lead to VCU tying the contest and winning it in overtime. Nothing worse than coming to early.

This isn’t the first time Bonnies fans came in their pants to early and stormed the court with time on the clock.

We Say Good Bye To Michael Vick

mv

ESPN – Michael Vick says his football career is over.

The once-dynamic quarterback told ESPN’s Josina Anderson on Friday that he is officially retired from the NFL. Vick, 36, did not play this past season.

“In this moment right now, I’m willing to say yeah, I’m officially retired,” Vick told Anderson. “I think it’s time. I think going through the 2016 season without playing and being able to be a spectator and watch the game and enjoy it from afar and root for a lot of the players and coaches I once played for, I think kind of summed it all up for me.

“So now I think I’m officially ready, I’m ready to move on to different things in my life and different facets of my life.”

It marks the end to a noteworthy career — for both its ups and downs — for the No. 1 overall pick in 2001 of the Atlanta Falcons, who acquired the selection through a trade with the San Diego Chargers.

Well it is official. One of the most exciting players to ever play in the NFL has called it a career. The former Falcon, Eagle, Jet, and Steeler left a lasting impact on us all with his athletic abilities, whether it be splitting defensive backs as he was running 70 yards for a touchdown, or dropping a dime on a 60 yard go route with a flick of the wrist. Michael Vick made a name for himself at Virginia Tech and entered the NFL with so much swag that he just couldn’t be touched.

Unfortunately for Vick, he will always be remembered for his role in dog fighting, which resulted in him being suspended for the 2007 and 2008 season, and he was never the same after. In his second season back, Vick led the Eagles to a 8-3 record after starting 12 games which resulted in a trip to his fourth and final Pro Bowl.

Here are the top 5 plays of #7 career.

 

Some want to compare Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson. Sure Jackson won the Heisman and had some Vick like moments this past fall, but it’s hard to believe that there will ever be another like Mike. Lets turn back the clock and check out his Hokie highlight reel.

Last but not least, how could we not talk about Madden 2004, when Vick donned the cover, and may go down as the greatest video game character all time. Everybody wanted to be the Falcons because of Vick. He was unstoppable. Tune in below to some great commentary from DVRmyPVR as we witness what made Vick so special.

LBJ vs Charles Barkley: Who Ya Got?

lbjIn case you have been under a rock for the last two weeks, you have missed out on LeBron James whining for more help from the Cavs front office. LeBron says he needs a playmaker, and keeps referring to his teammates as 14 players, one short than the league maximum on a roster. So there is space on the roster to add a player, yet it doesn’t seem that Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert is listening. Sure, JR Smith is coming back before the playoffs begin, but there is still an open roster spot. Does James have support? Not from Charles Barkley. Check out the video below from the guys over at TNT from last Thursday.

BAM! Shaquille O’Neal put Charles in his place. “You don’t know nothing about going back to back.” Shaq should have just got up from his chair and walked off the stage. I understand it is Barkley’s job to criticize, but the Cavaliers just had one of their worse months during LeBron’s tenure finishing the month of January 7-8 with some pretty bad losses. The Cavs clearly need help. Things only got better when LeBron replied to Barkley’s comments.

“I’m not going to let him disrespect my legacy like that,” James told ESPN. “I’m not the one who threw somebody through a window. I never spit on a kid. I never had unpaid debt in Las Vegas. I never said, ‘I’m not a role model.’ I never showed up to All-Star Weekend on Sunday because I was in Vegas all weekend partying.

“All I’ve done for my entire career is represent the NBA the right way. Fourteen years, never got in trouble. Respected the game. Print that.”

I am surprised LBJ went there, but it looks like he has had enough. Barkley just woke up the beast, and if it already wasn’t bad for the Eastern Conference, it is going to come worse. And watch out Golden State. You know LeBron is hungry now!

Oh ya, Charles Oakley wanted to get in on the fun as well.

Falcons vs Packers; NFC Championship Preview

falcons

This game has the two hottest quarterbacks in the league right now. The numbers prove it. Aaron Rodgers is the most talented quarterback in the NFL, while Matty Ice has proven that he needs to be considered for a top 5 spot in the league. Aaron Rodgers has been here before and has a ring to his name, while Ryan still has many doubters out there.

The Packers are dealing with injuries on both sides of the ball. Wide receivers are injured, even though Jordy Nelson is expected to play. The Packers secondary is also shredded and that is not a good thing going up against Julio Jones and the Falcons weapons. For Atlanta, the running duo of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman have been lighting it up both on the ground and through the air. While it is a two man job, they have numbers similar to the best running back in the league in Le’Veon Bell.

The Packers open up as a 6 point underdog. That is money in the bag! I have the Packers winning this one. You can’t go against Aaron Rodgers, especially after what he did last weekend. Rodgers is at the peak of his game, and while they may have had a four game losing streak, none of that fell on the shoulders of their quarterback. As I mentioned above, still have my doubts on Matt Ryan. Matty Ice is on the cusp of being one of the best in the league, but until he wins a big one, he will always be on the outside looking in, just like Joe Flacco.

Packers 38 – Falcons 31

Guess today will be that one time. Sorry Iain. What type of name is that?

Mike Vick is not walking through those doors Falcons fans…

Tom Crean Is Not Happy…

For all the hate that Tom Crean gets, you got to love this. He didn’t waste anytime getting into his players faces. Up by 19 and trying to finish an alley oop. What makes it even worse is that they couldn’t even finish. Practice on Monday should be fun. I coached basketball for a year before I was forced to resign for swearing at 7th and 8th grade boys. Put me in a college system and I would be swearing every other word. That is just the type of coach I am. If you screw up, you are going to hear it. You make a bad pass after I just drew up a play, your ass is on the bench. You lolly gag up and down the court and shoot the shit with your best friend on the other tea, you won’t be playing in the second half.

Bills Need To Change Losing Culture And It Starts With Old Timers

17 years in a row. It has been 17 years since the Buffalo Bills last made the playoffs.  Well you know what? It is time to move on from the losing culture. Where do the Bills need to begin? Stop inviting Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, and Steve Tasker to Bills events, specifically when naming a new head coach. Our friend Jon Lilley put it nicely.

For Christ sake, it was Frank Reich who led the greatest comeback of all time, not even Jim Kelly. Move on from the fucking losing culture and tell these losers to stop showing up. It has been 20+ years. Sean McDermott needs to surround himself with winners, not losers if he wants to keep his job at Bills head coach.
