Patriot's Vs The Streak.
November 20th, 2010
This week is a strange week. The Colts are not the Colts of old, or even last year. They are not a top five, or maybe even a top ten team. What they have is Manning and Wayne, and not a lot else. There defense is terrible. Their offensive line is terrible, except for the fact that because of Bill Po-Lyiní their O-Line is allowed to hold more than any other O-Line in the league. If you want a fun and amazingly annoying game to play, watch how many times the Colts O-Line blatantly holds or literally tackles a Patriotís passrusher in this game, and take a shot every time itís not called. The last time they played I counted a cool dozen. Oh by the way, here is my conspiracy theory, did you watch the Super Bowl last year? Did you see how the referees stuck it to the Colts, LOL. Do you think that had anything to do with the head referee retiring after that game, and sticking it to Po-Lyiní for all those years of crap he had to take from him? Just asking;-)
Itís a little bit funny, but
the defense this week has nearly the opposite weaknesses as the defense last
week. Not completely, because
The two biggest factors for me
are the play of the Safeties and the weather. The Colts keep their safeties
back, way back, like the Ravens. This is a mistake against the Patriotís
offense. They are a dink aní dunk offense that tears up the middle of the
field. If they donít take their safeties up at all, Brady will kill them
underneath. Plus, if the Pats can run the ball? Their offense is monstrous.
The Colts have the worst run defense in the league, and there is no way they
can stop this offense. This is not like the
Plus, this game is being played in Foxboro, in the cold, and maybe even in the snow. A dome team coming into Foxboro in winter conditions? Against Brady? Please! Plus, there offense is so banged up, I donít even know if they can put 11 players on the field;-) Oh, another thing to hate about the Colts, why is it that every year all the national pundits go on and on about the Colts injuries. Iíve never heard so many excuses given to one team, ever. Whenever we play the Colts, the story is always about how banged up the Colts are, and not a whisper of injuries to any other team. Itís the NFL for Christ sakes. Everybodyís injured? How many starters have we lost this season, before the season even got going? Thatís right, you donít know, because no other team in the NFL whines about injuries like the Colts.
So itís simple, I canít see
the Coltís defense slowing the Patís offense down. Plus, against the
Coltís offense, look for the Patís to do every dirty trick in the book
to take away Reggie Wayne. Use a box and one, or even a triangle and two
double and triple team him inside the zone. Okay so those are more
basketball things to do, but you get what I mean. I wasnít the biggest
Picking the Patriots this week would be the easiest pick of the year, if not for Manning and the streak. However, with: our improving play on both sides of the ball, the Colts inability to stop the run, the Colts only having one real weapon on offense, being on the road, and the weather, plus the Colts wah-wah-wah injuries, this looks as good of a lock as there is. Is that enough analysis? I heard one particularly annoying pundit claim they picked the Steelers last week because of their brilliant analysis? And those of us who picked the Pats just did so without any analysis, we were just idiots. Not that he was wrong, or rather so hopelessly wrong that he should quit any kind of pre-game analysis or anything. Oh-no, not the greatly brilliant King I Am. Oh yeah, bite me! I thought it was rather obvious that Pats were going to kick the shit out of the Steelers, just like I think it is rather obvious this week that the Pats are going to break the Colts winning streak against us. Sorry, if I donít have enough analysis to suit such high standards as yours, LOL.
Draft Post Script:
Tonight on channels 4, 5, 849,
804, hell, tonight on about 15 stations Texas A&M is playing
Okay, so we are knocked out of the top. So were do we go with our first pick: Passrusher-certainly, OG-some good choices, RB-give me Mark Ingram any day, but dare I say WR. There is a lot of uncertainty in this years Draft regarding WRs, but man there are about ten underclassmen who could come out and make this maybe the best WR Draft in history. If Julio Jones (jr) or AJ Green (jr) are on the board BB cannot pass on them, they wonít be. But what about: Greg Little, Malcolm Floyd (jr), Jonathon Baldwin (jr), DeVier Posey (jr), Leonard Hankerson, Ryan Broyles (jr) Terrence Toliver, Marvin McNutt (jr). I mean, that could be ten guys who could all go in the 1st Round, or 7 guys who donít come out, or anywhere in between. Would BB pull the trigger on Little of Floyd if they were still on the board in the 1st Round? I would. I'm really not sure if he would or not, but Iím starting to lean in that direction more and more. However, I think this is going to be a record breaking year for Juniors not coming out. I mean Luck is definitely not coming out, and Locker looks like he wants to go, but can he? How many of these guys will trade the certainty of next season in college, for the uncertainty of labor stiff and ownerís unrelenting greed. I mean, is it just me, or are the owners greed going beyond just plain evil. They are guaranteed, with the TV money and the Salary Cap, to make 35-60 million dollars a year, on their hobby! This is their business it is their hobby! In the NFL, for every owner except I think Al Davis, this is not their main business, this is their recreation, their fan fun time, their hobby. They are already squeezing the livelihood out of the rest of us in the country with their business practices, do they really need to squeeze the livelihood out of the players, for their HOBBY? Seriously? The greed of the wealthy always amazes me, and the need of middle class labor to protect the wealthy against their own interests always sickens me. Wake up people! The wealthy have stolen this democracy, and if you continue to worship their rights not to help this country then you are just as guilty for the destruction of our economy as they are.
Ridiculous media overreaction post script:
Okay, another thing that annoyed me this week. Michael Vick for MVP. This is the most classic example of the terrible overacting reporting that ESPN has created, where the only fact that matters is the very last thing that happen, with no perspective, reflection, understanding of history, or common sense. Vick had the best single Quarter for a QB in NFL history by throwing for 5 TDs. Great story, great film, fun to watch. However, it was one Quarter? He has 11 TD on the season? 5 TDs in the first Quarter against the Redskins, and 6 in the Entire rest of the season! What in the hell are you people talking about? Could somebody help me Iím drowning in a sea of bullshit.
