Caps-ital Punishment…

Posted in NHL with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 14, 2009 by sportsguru09

Wow, 6-2….really? Yep. Pittsburgh, led by Sid the Kid, absolutely thrashed the Caps last night in D.C. in front of a sold out crowd in the Verizon Center. mag_080502_34th_and_Madison_NHL_PlayoffsFrom early on, the game wasn’t much of one. After taking a 4-0 lead through almost two periods, the ‘Pens shut the crowd out of the game and minimized any production of Alex the Great around the net.

It was so bad for the ‘Caps that Varlamov, their young and coming goalie who’s been a pleasant surprise during these playoffs, was pulled after giving up some easy goals through two periods. He was replaced by Jose Theodore, who consequently gave up two more goals of his own. PD3_0060As a Caps fan, this was utterly embarassing. No heart, no will, no luck, and certainly no breaks out on the ice. It was domination from the first time the puck dropped on the ice. There was little Ovi could do to get his squad back in the game. As the Caps just sat and watched Pittsburgh put on a show, led by Crosby’s two goals, it again will sting another year for each player on the Washington bench after this miserable performance in a Game 7, especially against the much-hated Penguins.

But hey, there’s always next year, right Caps fans? Heck no, it hurts right now. I hate that stupid expression…

Skins Saved With Hesitation…

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

Reports came out yesterday that the Redskins, during this past weekend’s 2009 NFL Draft, were slow to the punch in making a move up the 4th or 5th spot to get overrated quarterback Mark Sanchez. To Skins fans, you guys better be glad you did. .washington_redskins_helmetSanchez will be a bust and you know, all of you, that Dan Snyder, slick and slimey Snyder, would’ve given up an arm, leg, and well…the whole army to get him and get rid of his previous investment Jason Campbell. Fortunately for Washington’s organization and future, the New York Jets traded away picks and backup players to steal Sanchez from the Browns at the 5th overall pick (though there weren’t many signs saying that Cleveland wanted or even worked out “Dirty Sanchez”).

Now, I’m not saying that Campbell or backup Colt Brennan will have better careers than Sanchez. To be honest, I don’t think many people will remember any of the 3 of them 10-15 years from now. But I disagree with Snyder’s ploy at giving up everything, as well as your team’s future, to get somebody who’s unproven and out of a system where EVERYONE is a winner. USC simply breeds NFL-ready starts at the WR, RB, OL,…well at every position and the job of quarterback might be the easiest on the team, especially in a weak Pac-10 Football Conference. Sanchez should win that many games and should be successful. For goodness sakes, he’s on the best team (on paper) and in the best overall football system under a great coach in the entire country. Winning behind center is so easy a caveman could do it…coltbrennan

What do you have to deal with now Skins fans? Well, your quarterback hates your front office, he’s not really that good, and you have the Pineapple Express Colt Brennan riding the pine….what doesn’t seem right about this?

Be Afraid ‘Skins Fans, Be Very Afraid…

Posted in NFL with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 25, 2009 by sportsguru09

‘Skins fans, listen up. Today is draft day. Normally this means bad news for you guys. Why? Because your owner, Mr. Daniel Snyder, is a moron and a sellout. Is he smart? No. Does he know what he’s doing? No. WIll he give up the entire franchise for one player? Yes. spo_ft_washingtonredskins_1006Don’t be surprised if all this comes full force through today’s first round of the 2009 NFL Draft. Sitting in front of you is vulnerability in the name of Mark Sanchez. After only one workout and meeting between Sanchez and the Washington Redskins, Snyder became absolutely smitten with the unproven Sanchez and has already expressed the idea of shopping all their draft picks and Jason Campbell to go get him. What will this take? Well, they’ll be on the phone with Seattle with the #4 pick or with Jacksonville at #8 if “Dirty Sanchez” lasts that long. This spells disaster for Washington…

I have two strong feelings on this matter and potential bomb that Snyder may drop on his own organization:

1 – YOU HAVE COLT BRENNAN. The Pineapple Express is a good player, has lit it up in the preseason, and is a better passer than Jason Campbell. Why not give him a shot? What do you have to lose? Why pay Top 10 money when you haven’t given your All-College backup a chance. For goodness sakes, the guy will put fans in the seats and might just be productive. I mean, he threw for like 10 Million yards at Hawaii. Give the kid a shot….

2 – Mark “I’m Lucky I Played At USC” Sanchez, to me, is unproven. He played for the Trojans and Pete Carrol for cryin’ out loud. You put anyone in that system, like Graham Harrell or Sam Bradford, and they too when a bunch of games. Yes Sanchez won 19 games there, but THAT’S WHAT HE’S SUPPOSED TO DO. 2009draft_msanchez
Every year, USC, on paper, has the best team and most skilled recruits in the country. When you drop back to pass, have more than 5 seconds to throw, and have stud WRs on either side of you running down the field, it’s not hard to be successful. Shoot, I have a good arm. I could win 19 games at USC. Even more, the Pac-10 is a weak conference. Who does USC play? Cal? UCLA? Oregon? Come on now, it’s no SEC or Big 12. Simply put, Sanchez is overrated and I hope the Skins, for my own entertainment, give up everything to get him, end up as a bust, and finally give Brennan a shot.

Good luck today Washington, you’ll need it…

Why Give Dallas Prime Time Games?…

Posted in NFL with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 19, 2009 by sportsguru09

Come on NFL, let’s be smart about this. Why do the ‘Boys from Texas deserve the most primetime NFL games this coming 2009 NFL Season? What have they done for us lately? The Dallas Cowgirls are not America’s team anymore. They’re all hated anyways by anyone who’s not a Cowboys fan or even a fan of football. Just the “Big D” name makes Redskins fans cringe.cowboys And without T.O., they’re just not that exciting…and probably won’t even be that good this year. Who does Romo have to throw to other than J-Dub (Jason Witten)? Roy Williams, Sam Hurd, Patrick Crayton? Boo to those names. Williams is old and overrated, Hurd might not even make the team, and Crayton only is productive when teams focus on a big star like Owens. And worst of all is Wade Phillips. Come on now, are we really putting him on TV more than once this year? Trust me, he’s not pretty to look at it and he’s an awful coach. This is a huge mistake (literally, Phillips isn’t that small if you get my drift)…

Sunday, Oct. 11 @ Carolina Panthers
Sunday, Oct. 18 Kansas City Chiefswashington-redskins-helmet-logo

Sunday, Dec. 13 @ Oakland Raiders
Monday, Dec. 21 New York Giants
Sunday, Dec. 27 Dallas Cowboys
Sunday, Jan. 3 @ San Diego Chargers

With a quick look, the Skins have gotten a cake first half of the season (relatively speaking compared to the 2nd half) against the Bucs, Lions, Rams, and Chiefs. Unfortunately for Dan Snyder, his team won’t be happy for long, having to play Atlanta, Dallas, Philly, and San Diego all on the road during the last two months of the 2009 season. The road looks rocky for Washington to sneak into the playoffs this year, especially in the brutal NFC East. This may finally be the year where Jason Campbell proves that he in fact CANNOT lead this team and the Skins finally pull the trigger and let everyone’s favorite sideline stud Colt Brennan take a shot in some games. Why not? The kid only threw for a million yards at Hawaii and was been impressive in each of his preseason appearances in 2008. Clearly, Brennan’s got skill….and the ladies love him…

Toughest Home Game for Washington to Win Outside of the NFC East: New Orleans Saints in Week 13 (Dec. 6th)

Toughest Away Game for Washington to Win Outside of the NFC East: At the Carolina Panthers in Week 5 (Oct. 11th)

The Game Likely to Destroy Washington’s Playoff Push: A letdown against the Oakland Raiders in California Week 14 (Dec. 13th)

The Game Washington will surprise people and win: Sunday, Nov. 8th in Atlanta against Matt Ryan’s Falcons…this has upset special written all over it

Win/Loss Prediction: In 2009, Washington will finish 6-10 and miss the playoffs…sorry Skins fans…but look on the bright side, at least Colt may see some PT
