Tweeting Terrell Stirs It Up Again…

Posted in NFL with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 26, 2009 by sportsguru09

That’s right, Terrell won’t shut up. In yet another tale in T.O.’s post-Dallas saga, Owens recently bashed Jason Garret and Tony Romo on his Twitter, yes Twitter, page. Bills Owens FootballWow, what else has this world come to? T.O. tweets…yikes. Between him and Mark Cuban, you might as well take “censorship” out of the dictionary as it will likely no longer apply. Anyways, in a Twitter post last week, one of Owens’ fans had mentioned how upset he was that Mr. Get Ya Popcorn Ready was cut by Big D. In response, Owens posted the following:

“neither ws i, blame the OC & romo!! but i’m happy 2 b where i am but i miss the other guys tht were & r true teammates!!”

Not only can Owens tweet, but he can write in such broken english no one can actually understand what he’s saying! If you’re going to be critical of someone else, at least put it in a professional forum, not some Facebook knock-off application. Give me a break, I’m tired of Twitter-sparked controversy. Get a life people…and by life I mean everything except Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc. This isn’t fantasy world (though most of us would like it to be, trust me).

Miami Turned Margaritaville?…

Posted in NFL with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 7, 2009 by sportsguru09

Wastin’ awayyy in olllllllddd Dolphin Stadiummmmmm…This might as well be the theme song for the proposed “Landshark” Stadium down in Miami, home of coaching legend Bill Parcells’ Dolphins. Why? Ask Jimmy Buffet. He recently accepted a business position and role with the Miami Dolphins organization. vinylmagnet-dolphinsWith a long and buddy-buddy relationship with the Dolphins’ owner Stephen Ross, Buffet has accepted Ross’ invitation to get into the National Football League via Business Management and use his face to rebrand the Miami franchise. Why Landshark Stadium? Well, if you haven’t heard, Landshark, a beer that is widely loved and at times considered the “Poor Man’s Corona,” is highly promoted and marketed by Buffet and his Hawaii shirt-wearin crew.

Buffet, a major musical idol across the world, would be a perfect fit down in Miami where the nightlife is great, music is of all varieties, and alcohol runs aplenty. 300px-jimmy_buffetWhen the clock turns to 5 o’clock somewhere, Buffet will be sitting in brand new box seats, likely with his name all over them, in a stadium soon to be named for his branded beer. What a life, first music, now the NFL? It isn’t bad, we’ll say that. And because he will be on tour and selling out musical venues across the globe until he’s like 170 years old, this is just another way for Buffet to promote his music. Sounds like a win win to me, good move Jimmy…

Favre Finds Trainer, Childress Open To Favre Comeback…

Posted in NFL with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 4, 2009 by sportsguru09

“Favre to Harvin for a 75-yard TD Pass!”….”Favre hands it off to Peterson for a huge gain”….”Favre wins the NFC North in ’09 with Minnesota?!?!?”…Folks, don’t be surprised if you hear this during the 2009 NFL season. As much as he vows that there’s nothing that could entice him, Brett Favre has hired a personal trainer and has sparked the interest of yes, that’s right, the Minnesota Vikings. brettfavreBetter yet, Brad Childress, Minnesota’s coach who knows that they have no talent behind center to protect A-Pete, said over the weekend that the prospect of Favre quarterbacking the ‘Vikes next year will certainly be discussed in detail among his organization and coaching staff. Yikes, could you imagine yet another comeback? Even Favre fans would be sick and tired of Brett coming back just to get cold-clocked by the defenses in the NFC for another year, jeopardizing his health and maybe his life in the long term (he is like 55 now right?!?). The sad thing is that the sports world wouldn’t be surprised if Favre did un-retire, and this time, if it were to Minnesota, no one would really care (outside of the NFC North of course).

For Favre, the only way this could go well would be if he actually did come back and actually win a Super Bowl. Otherwise, it would all be for not and he would simply just make a fool of himself. At this point, no one would believe too much of what he says, or at least I wouldn’t. vikings_-_super_novaWhen he actually does retire after this alleged comeback, it’ll probably go unrecognized as nobody will think it’ll be for real or for good. The more Favre contemplates returning to the game, the more he loses his fan-base and the more annoyed NFL fans and the rest of the sports world get. Now, I know that many people hire personal trainers to help them get fit or lose weight, but Favre has been playing football over the last two decades so he can’t be too out of shape right? This further makes me believe that he wants to stay in “Game-Shape” just in case he gets that phone call from Minnesota. God help the Favre family and the media criticism that will flood their lives for the next year if Brett plays in the NFL once again. Haven’t they been through enough Brett?

On a side note, I got the ‘Vikes winning the NFC North if Favre does come back…

Skins Sign Favre, Edge Lands In Denver…

Posted in NFL with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2009 by sportsguru09

……Don’t worry, I’m just kidding sports fans. But wouldn’t these two headlines be absolutely hilarious and certainly fitting?! The Skins, in the midst of their own quarterback conundrum and Denver….oh Denver….who has inexplicably filled its entire roster with Running Backs leading into the 2009 season. Why not, what’s one more RB right? If anything, at this point the Ponies (Broncos) have enough running backs to backfill all of their other positions on the football field! Nice work Josh McDaniels, way to completely destroy your salary cap with bums in the backfield, minus Knowshon “Mr. Georgia” Moreno who has yet to step onto the gridiron.denver-broncos-head I can’t wait to watch the Broncos run their organization into the ground, literally. You might as well stand all their Running Backs up in a shooting line, it’s going to be that type of year at Mile High.

As for the Washington Snyders (yes, Dan Snyder, their pompous owner), they’ve been so worried about trying to replace Jason Campbell during the offseason and in the 2009 NFL Draft that all they’ve actually done is piss him off. Though this might give him so motivation in the short term, it doesn’t exactly build internal relations or chemistry. Don’t be surprised if halfway through the year Snyder ends up on Favre’s doorstep begging him to once again break out of retirement…anything can happen right? In Dan Snyder’s world it can….which is normally a bad thing for the Washington Redskins.

ALBANY, N.Y. – Michael Vick has a place on a minor-league indoor football team if he can get reinstated by the NFL.

The Albany Firebirds, an arenafootball2 franchise, have offered the 28-year-old quarterback from Newport News a one-year contract at the league standard: $200 a week plus a $50 bonus for a win.070202_vick_vmed_3pwidec

Vick quarterbacked the Atlanta Falcons for six seasons before being convicted of bankrolling an interstate dogfighting business.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has not said if he will lift Vick’s suspension after he completes a 23-month prison sentence. Vick goes from federal prison to home confinement next month.

The Firebirds’ contract offer requires that Vick donate $100,000 to a local humane society.

Beanie Has The “Edge” In ‘Zona…

Posted in NFL with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2009 by sportsguru09

Yesterday (and expectedly), the reigning NFC Champion Arizona Cardinals released previous Indianapolis Colts running back Edgerrin “The Edge” James. We all saw this coming and it’s been long overdue. Yes, “Edge” had a good run in the playoffs last year and early in his career he was a solid force in the backfield, but he simply just doesn’t hack it anymore. He’s older, his legs are slow, and he struggles to break tackles. Ohio St Michigan FootballHowever, the release was imminent after watching the ‘Cards draft Chris “Beanie” Wells out of Ohio State University this past weekend with their first round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. Clearly, Arizona’s front office had a future vision of a bruising downhill runner (some call it overweight) that can provide some tough yards in between Warner-Fitzgerald bombs 50 yards downfield. Beanie is the future of the Cardinals’ backfield and the organization solidified that yesterday. To Edge, you’ve had a great career, but it’s time you start thinking about hangin’ up the ‘ole spikes….

Madden’s Next Video Game Cover Boys?!?!…

Posted in Random with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 24, 2009 by sportsguru09

And the Madden 2010 Video Game Cover Boys are………………………LARRY FITZGERALD, Wide Receiver and Mega-Star of the reigning NFC Champions, the Arizona Cardinals and TROY POLAMALU of the Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers. Fitzgerald and Polamalu will replace Brett Favre from the 2009 Edition. This is the first time ever that Madden cover will be split between two NFL superstars. Fitzgerald is an eletric wide receiver who made a major name for himself in the NFL playoffs and Super Bowl last year. madden-coverPolamalu is a ball hawking cornerback who is known for heavy hitting and intensity on the football field. For all you true Madden gamers out there, the Madden curse, however, does still exist. What does it mean? Well, typically either the cover boy gets hurt and is out for the season or is a complete fantasy football bust. For Arizona and Pittsburgh’s sake, they better pray that this isn’t true for the 2009-2010 season….well, maybe Pittsburgh being that I am a die hard Jacksonville Jaguars fan…

THE OFFICIAL MADDEN 2009 RELEASE DATE IS AUG. 14TH, 2009
