NFL Football -Super Bowl XLV Media Day

Super Bowl XLV Media Day

Hello world,

Super bowl media day came and went without a “touchdown.” Can anybody tell where the real journalist went?

Anyway, I was pleased with how Ben Roethlisberger handles the press conference. He did not let the reporters lead him down the path of his past transgressions. All he can do is just win this Super bowl and keep playing and winning. Surely, he must know who his friends are an how to conduct himself as a man.

Aaron Rodgers also handled himself well. He did not try to get into too much about He is a likable person and that might be why people are leaning more to the to win the Super bowl. Well, media day is over and the players are back to business. Are you ready for some football? Are you hosting a party or going to the sports bar, or will you be doing something else? Talk back!

Super Bowl XLV -Two To Tango

Steelers To Packers – We Melt Cheese!

Hello World,

Be prepared to hear Super bowl XLV analyzed to infinity this week. These few days leading up to the Super bowl will be either heaven-sent for football fans or complete nonsense to the casual fans. So, casual fans, let me talk to you first.

Everybody you see on sports channels, talk shows, writing articles in newspapers, to the bookies in Las Vegas is an expert. Most of these experts played the game and the rest have great knowledge of the game. This is where you need to pay attention, these experts are going to know so much you are going to wonder why in the world they are not playing. By Wednesday all of us will become the new experts.

Believe me, by Wednesday you would have heard it all. How is that? Tomorrow is Media Day. All the healthy players from the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers have to speak with the media. Oh, they cannot ask the questions and answer them either. Then on Wednesday the Media is going to analyze what the players said and did not say. Thursday the players are about their business. Practicing! Don’t mention this around Iverson.

On Friday and Saturday Jerry Jones and Dallas will throw parties. Experts are at the parties too, so you won’t hear from them until Monday. So. Just hang on and you will get the hang of it. I will make my predictions on Friday.

To the real football fans – you know what time it is. It’s time to make a decision about who you’re going to root for. It’s time to either get your “terrible towels” out or get your “cheese head” on. Hope you enjoyed reading this. The point is just enjoy each day because time is fleeting. Enjoy your day on purpose.

Jake Cutler and the Chicago Bears

Jake Cutler and The Chicago Bears

Jake Cutler is perceived by many in the football arena as someone who lacks the emotion that is needed as a leader. This is one case where perception is reality for many people and Jake Cutler is quickly thrown under the bus.

People seem to have expectations of people in position of authority and leadership to show their passion. What they saw of Jake Cutler on Sunday was not what they were expecting for someone who is a few minutes from going to the Super bowl; but no one had the facts. So the tweeters went on Twitterand started tweeting based on perception. Comments from former players and TV analysts started a fire storm. When the truth came out it had many of these “experts” had to back pedal.

The truth of the matter is that some people are more demonstrative than others. People had the same complaint about Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs.

People were also mad when President George Bush was crying on TV immediately after 9-11. Then we have people like Bobby Knight throwing chairs and Lebron James refusing to shake the hands with the Orlando Magic team after losing the conference finals.

Jake Cutler has heart or else he would never play NFL football. That game is rough and you have to be tough- not stupid. How correct are we in our perceptions? Should personality and temperament be taken into account? Say something!

Congratulations Jets and Rex

Thanks Jets! Thanks Rex!

Congratulations to Rex Ryan, coach of the New York Jets. You made the Jets relevant in the NFL, New York and the world. To get back to the AFC Championship two years in a row is a great accomplishment. The Jets-Steelers had the highest rating in a decade and a half. Over 58 million people watch that game. Even though they did not make it to the Super bowl this year, it will happen next year. Thanks Rex, thanks Jets.

NFL Football Championship Sunday-Bears and Jets

Chicago Bears A No-Show; Jets Flight Delayed Take-Off

Hello world, how are you today? I think that if you supported the Jets you are disappointed, but if you are a Chicago Bears fan you must still have a hangover. What a way to play for a chance to go to the Super bowl! No guts, no determination, and no perseverance- that’s how you lose the game. You also lose in life if this is your attitude.

The Jets are different. They battled back from 24-0 to make it interesting in the last five minutes of the game. They tried their best and I believe they will be back at this level next year and they will win it.

Now we turn our attention to Super bowl XLV between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers. I believe the Steelers will win.
