Things we have learned from Week 15……..

  • Jeremy Hill’s production as the Bengals’ starter has been a quick progression that has pushed full steam ahead. Coming right out of training camp, everyone was on the Giovani Bernard bandwagon and drafting him as high as the 2nd round. Well, injuries are always an opportunity for backups to shine, which is exactly what Hill did as the starter. Hill is a true workhorse back and is averaging a flashy 4.95 ypc. He has taken hold of the job and will not be relinquishing it any time soon.
  •  Odell Beckham is a BEAST! Beckham  has been destroying defenses on a week to week basis. This past week it was the Washington Redskins on his list and he didn’t disappoint. He crushed Jim Haslett’s defense for 12 catches, 143 yards and 3 touchdowns, bringing his season line to 71/972/9 … in 10 games. Beckham is averaging 9 catches for 124 yards since replacing Victor Cruz in the starting lineup, and has cleared 90 yards 7-of-7 times. He has 61 catches, which is the most ever for a rookie in a seven-game span. His starting averages extrapolate to 139/1,979/14 for a full season. WOW!!!!!That yardage total would be the most all time.
  •  Johnny Manziel’s debut as a starter did not go as planned. The Browns ran an NFL season-low 38 offensive plays in a 30-0 loss Sunday to the Cincinnati Bengals, with Manziel throwing for just 80 yards and two interceptions. Manziel got minimal help from the rest of the offense and looked indecisive making throws down-field. The Browns’ offense was on the field for less than 21 minutes Sunday. He will learn real quick that the CB’s in the NFL are alot more explosive than that of the NCAA..

Drew Brees rose back to elite status with a 300+ and 3 TD performance….Jay Cutler looks about as reliable as a deadbeat Dad who hasn’t paid child support in over 10 years….The Chicago O-Line is revolving faster than then the entrance door at Toys R Us during the Holiday Season….Harry Douglas looks to be a more than adequate replacement for Julio Jones while he is out….Aaron Rodgers showed he is human…Jordy Nelson must have been soaking his fingertips in 5W-30 since he could catch a cold in Buffalo…Drew Stanton got knocked out and his replacement, Ryan Lindley reminded us why he is Ryan Lindley.….The Cincinnati Bengals were throwing around more money signs than Pac Man Jones at the strip club…..There has been an APB put out for Peyton Manning and Emmanuel Sanders. Has anyone seen them at a bus stop anywhere?….Mark Sanchez proved why the NY Jets let him go and told him he needed to stick to visits to the Playboy Mansion. This is the one place he may be able to HIT on open target!!!!!!!!!!

rumble2

The WWE Royal Rumble is one of the most prestigious and anticipated Pay-Per-Views of the year. There is always a sense of excitement throughout the arena as the fans anticipate the arrival of the next entrant.  Over the years the names of surprise entrants and special appearances is endless. Obviously some years better than others, but all in all an exhilarating experience to say the least.

I thought about this for a while and wondered if you were allowed to pick 5 Wrestlers from another organization, retired, or inactive, who they might be. I am configuring this list by leaving out the likes of wrestlers such as The Undertaker, Stone Cold, Hulk Hogan and The Rock; all of whom (among others) have participated in plenty of Rumbles in the past. After pondering this question for a moment, these are the wrestlers I came up with:

  • Nikita Koloff – Throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, he wrestled as nikita“The Russian Nightmare” and was a force to be reckoned with inside the ring. Nikita was brought into the National Wrestling Alliance by his “Uncle” Ivan to prove Soviet superiority. Their ultimate goal was to dethrone NWA World champion Ric Flair. His bruising in-ring presence could be a nice match for the likes of Roman Reigns and John Cena.

 

  • A.J. Styles – The former TNA and NWA World Champion could prove to be an aj stylesaccomplished adversary for the WWE. He has always been a favorite of mine and I think his athletic ability inside the Rumble could be a nice addition to Kofi Kingston’s usual thrills.

 

  • Ricky Steamboat – Steamboat was always more of a player with the NWA where he had ricky2several main event matches with the likes of Ric Flair that still stand up today. He was a one-time World Heavyweight Champion with the NWA and was remembered as one of the greatest Intercontinental Champions of all time.

 

  • Bruno Sammartino – Former WWF Champion The dominant brunowrestler of the Sixties. Call him Mr. Madison Square Garden, where he headlined forever and set a record for sellouts. Great ring psychologist who was better than a lot of people thought, especially before his back injury limited him.

 

  • Verne Gagne – Founded the AWA, where he reigned for many verneyears as its champion. He was a top-notch amateur who turned pro and could work any style, in any era. He was a fantastic draw and it would be nice for him, along with the organization to get their due.

 

After reading this list, please understand that I left off all the deceased wrestlers in respect to their trademarks. My main focus was on the stars of yesterday and ones with allegiances to other federations. I personally think it would be interesting to see how these stars would be perceived by the crowd and the wrestlers alike. One of the most interesting things about these kinds of lists is how different they can range from one person to the next. I am curious to see what you guys think about this list and hope to compile as many comments as possible when stating your own.

flyers

The state of Flyers hockey is more of a riddle than poetry.  Here are some riddles for you… I wear a number 5 and love to turn the puck over?  Or, I am a right handed defenseman who skates in mud, who am I?  Try this, I was paid $30 million over six years and cannot get the puck out of my zone, and no other teams even wanted my services, who am I?

Next, we would be a number 7 defenseman on any other team, who are we?  Get my point!  The Flyers entire defensive core is a disgrace! If I see another moment when Braydon Coburn Coburnis behind the net with no pressure and the other team is on a line change, and then watch him ice the puck, I will throw the remote through the TV!  How about when DelZotto or MacDonald reverse the puck for no reason, and then create a self-imposed fore-check!

Then you have Nicholas Grossman…love his effort, but talk about skating in cement!  Now Nick, can I Grossmancall you Nick?  Please use your size and bury someone.  Also, clear the crease with anger and take a head off or two.  If I bring up Luke Schenn, this author won’t have enough time to include my “why did you trade JVR for this piece cr@p rant!”   Next article, the forwards…uggh!  Those are my thoughts, how about you?

undertaker

Where has the Undertaker been? Will he ever wrestle again?

Since WrestleMania 30, the Undertaker’s status for WWE WrestleMania 31 has been speculated in every wrestling website and publication all over the world. The image of his face on the advertisement seems to be enough to think it will happen. There seemed to be concern for Undertaker’s health following his first-ever loss at WrestleMania 30 against Brock Lesnar, but it seems like it all has been forgotten.

Lesnar and Paul Heyman were the two that Undertaker and/or Vince McMahon chose to end the brockandtakerillustrious streak. The looks and screams from the fans on that day can still be seen and heard from miles away. Ending the Streak wasn’t a popular idea, but it now turn out that Lesnar was destined to be the WWE’s pick for World Champion. He was supposed to be carrying the company for months, but his limited appearances and part time schedule are making followers furious instead of excited.

Many WWE legends think Taker earned the right to retire with his streak intact. Stone Cold Steve Austin was just one of the wrestlers who thought the streak was so special that it should have remained unbroken.

Since WWE’s inclusion of Sting at Survivor Series, there seemed to be some thought to the idea of him wrestling the Undertaker at WrestleMania 31. Sting has since signed a very unique legendssting contract where he will only make 6 appearances in a WWE arena. This obviously shows that he never had a real desire to be a wrestler for WWE, but instead was committed to marketing his “Icon” status with the help of a billion dollar company in the late stages of his career.

However, it looks as though plans have changed and now the Deadman’s return may involve trying to silence the devious Bray Wyatt. Bray Wyatt was said to be tweeting some cryptic messages that were thought to be a sign of Sting, but now it looks as though it may have been tied to the Undertaker. If there was a reason to think Bray needed to be pushed over, maybe it could be justified, but he already is a crowd favorite and has many followers.

I personally think the Undertaker should stay somewhat retired and leave the storylines alone. Why start another streak? What does it prove if he comes back and defeats Bray Wyatt? The man has already bray wyattaccomplished a fantastic resume and has left the WWE universe with an amount of memories to last three lifetimes. I think we get carried away with the nostalgic factor of these ideas, but do not look at the whole picture. The streak was something that was 20+ years in the making and a part of wrestling history. It was talked about all over the world and had many exciting finishes. Unfortunately, every book has an ending and this book was slammed shut by the Brock Lesnar. I think we should leave well enough alone and leave the tale of The Undertaker intact without any attempt of recreation…Thoughts?

old time hockey

Having become an intense and knowledgeable fan of hockey since the mid-1970s, I just feel something is missing in today’s game. As I write this in my Don Cherry sports coat, I will admit the speed and skill is obviously better than ever (less Mr. Gretzky, Lemieux, and Orr), and the restrictions on clutching, grabbing, and hooking is nice to see. Yet, once again, something is missing.gretzky

I hate to sound like a dinosaur, but I truly miss the “honest” fight in hockey, and the occasional bench clearing brawl. I believe I am not going out on limb thinking the fans do as well!  If you were to put a microphone on the fighters in hockey today, you might hear at the face-off circle, “How’s your family, try any good IPA beers lately, and oh yea, wanna drop the gloves?”

Then after the bout, often you will see pats on the back and nods of solidarity. What the hell is that!  I hate these scripted fights.  The mindset that the team is playing sluggish, so let’s create a contrived fight is utter nonsense!  When Dave Schultz and Terry O’Reilly went after each other, it was over a cheap shot, or a vicious check.  Clark Gillies and Tiger Williams did not ask about the wife and kids before dropping the gloves.  Ask Mel Bridgman how he felt about Bob Nystrom!

gordieI want good old time hockey back, from Eddie Shore, to Gordie Howe, to Bob Plager, to Rick Tocchet, and maybe I’ll include Colton Orr, if he does not invite someone to fight, then share a milkshake after the game.

Those are my thoughts, how about you?

Things we have learned from Week 14……..

  • Mark Sanchez has proved to the Philadelphia Eagles brass that he is not a solution going forward. The Seattle Defense is playing at an all time high level, but they can still be beat. Mark showed why he is relegated to backup duty once Nick Foles comes back healthy!

 

  • Peyton Manning and Drew Brees turned in 2 of the lousiest performances of their perspective fantasy careers. If you had told me last week that the two would combine for only 408 passing yards and 1 TD, I would have called you certifiably insane. The fact is that Denver is in love with CJ Anderson and Manning always slows down toward playoff time.

 

  • Aaron Rodgers is playing in league all on his own. This guy has been nothing short of perfect and holds the all time Passer Rating record at 106.7. He has thrown a spectacular 223 TD’s and only 55 INT’s throughout his career so far. Rodgers could very well go down as the best QB ever to play the game!

 

Le’veon Bell cannot be stopped. He has taken over the crown as Fantasy’s Top RB….Percy Harvin gets hurt more than a 90 year old man in a nursing home walking without his cane….The Denver Broncos will keep feeding CJ Anderson in their own version of beast mode…..Julio Jones shows the NFL he still has game. He was playing like a man possessed on Monday night to the tune of 11/259/1….The Cincinnati Bengals are about as consistent as our judicial system..They always have a 50/50 chance at a win……Bishop Sankey is about as good as a fantasy player as Betty White is a stripper….Rob Ryan has locked up his tenure in New Orleans. The only thing that upsets him is leaving the good BBQ behind….There has been an APB put out on the following players: Jimmy Graham, Demaryius Thomas, Josh Gordon. They haven’t been seen since Week 13……Brian Hoyer gave every reason to get benched this week and prove that the decision for him to remain a starter must have been made under an intense drinking binge. Johnny Football is ready to make it rain!!!!!!

wweufc

What if Vince McMahon bought into the UFC? What if that was the plan all along?

Let’s all face the facts that the World of Professional Wrestling does not offer the same token of excitement that it once did when it was an era maligned in tumultuous success. The wrestlers basically marketed themselves and the promoters took care of their perspective territories making sure the promotion was a credible entity. Times have changed and now we live in an era of monthly storylines where part time wrestlers come and go as they please, leaving fans waiting for a change. A change in creative philosophy can go a long way into spiking ratings back to respectability and helping a good product become great again.

There have been so many instances over the years where the creative juices started to flow within the company that lead to a following of more fans coming back to the forefront. The Attitude Era, CM Punks Pipe bomb, the Draft, and the array of suspenseful General Managers are all examples of something to keep the audience interested and talking.

One of the biggest instances was the eventual sale of WCW to form one giant entity. The whole wrestling world was shocked at these developments and surprised in which the manner they took place. In buying up the competition, it opened up a creative centerpiece for storylines to be depicted from on a weekly basis.

This all brings me to the CM Punk situation that has grown legs over the last couple of weeks. Let me first start off by saying the WWE is in desperate need of doing something to captivate their audience, which is why Sting was brought in ahead of schedule at Survivor Series.  Their ratings are low and their product is stale. WWE needs something to spark a controversy, make media waves, or just get more people to watch their product. What if this something was CM Punk, Brock Lesnar, Vince McMahon, and Dana White?

Before you slam down my concept, please let me elaborate and keep in mind this is an editorial piece, not credible information.  After CM Punk left, there was no real Full Time Superstar to max out the ratings other than John Cena. This lead to the makeup of a full time Hunter and Stephanie Authority, a part time Champion, the return of the anonymous GM  and unexpected appearances of Vince McMahon. The ratings were still lower than expected and the chants of CM Punk were being poured out in every arena across the world. What if Vince was doing what is best for business? What if he is doing a calculated move to keep his company moving in a positive manner? What if he bought into the MMA Conglomerate, UFC?

Here’s something to think about it. Is a surprise that Brock Lesanr’s TV appearances have been limited and cancelled prior to the announcement by CM Punk? Is anyone at all curious why CM Punk all of a sudden decided to tell his side of the story? This all was followed up by a Stone Cold and Vince podcast to answer some of the remarks made by Punk; leading to the eventual announcement by Punk himself to join UFC in 2015. What if the anonymous GM was in fact the owner of UFC, Dana White? This could lead to a first ever UFC bout during WrestleMania.

As I stated above, this is just my opinion of what could happen and why it makes sense. One thing is for sure; it would definitely give us more suspense inside of the WWE and bring a lot more fans into the fold.
