    Enough questions already. I feel like I'm being interrogated man. Big Brother is watching you too. Just Kidding!!! Add Alfred Hitchcock suspense music here.

    Peyton talks Colts on NFL Network

    Funny that you mention Pete because he was like Brady vs Manning in football. Had Sampras not been around or become so outstanding so quickly Andre Agassi would have won more Wimbledon trophies. I feel pretty confident saying that. Agassi was really good on clay too. I know Pete's winning overshadowed Andre for awhile, but I loved watching Agassi when he shaved his mullet off & went bald. I swear he got faster after that like an AirFoce pilot letting it rip & thereby break the sound barrier. Becker was a tough as nails competitor who always left everything he had out on the court. The guy just never gave up. His drive was something to see that's for sure. Not great but your classic over achiever.

    I should mention Agassi too. It always used to tick me off when people thought Andre was overrated. That dude had tremendous vision like an eagle man. His legs & lower body were lean & extremely muscular as well. Boris Becker always dreaded facing Agassi because he knew he would be exhausted & could barely stand up when the match was over. Andre was the king of the ace for awhile too. Andre played so far away from the net & yet he had cheetah like closing speed to volley the ball. Never seen anything else like it in Mens Professional Tennis man. I like that you were critical of Lebron & Peyton CBE. It doesn't mean your slamming them just requiring higher standards from them because of their sustained greatness. I get it. I know you're not a hater brother. Objectivity often gets confused with blind loyalty. Never be afraid to speak the truth. Eyes don't lie. Keep doing it.

    Hey there Mark, Nice to get a reply from you. True, both Peyton & Tiger learning to adapt their games after major injuries is remarkable indeed. You also make an excellent point about 1 person in tennis or golf vs say so many things that have to go right on a 53 man roster in order to win in February. Yes, I know I was tough on #18 in previous seasons in INDY & Colorado but even I know how incredibly smart & next level great Peyton was or is. Manning had a mind like a machine with tremendous recall. He would remember what the secondary did in the 1st Qtr & kill you by counteracting it in the 3rd quarter. Just amazing. Manning, Brees, Brady, Rogers all have lightning quick mental recall. Uh huh. Woods as a 1 man show does all the heavy lifting no question. No one to carry his water when he's having a bad day at the office. Well put.

    What's your take on the Ravens QB situation?

    Bingo! CBFL just confirmed or reinforced what GMs & HC's really want & go after. QBs who win from the neck up slicing up secondaries with their eyes & arms. RG3 & Micheal Vick never won rings. Russell Wilson did, but he's an outlier not the norm. Really Wagner, Chancellor, & Lynch were essential pieces that closed that deal. Yes, Wilson played well against the Broncos in 2013. I know that.

    What's your take on the Ravens QB situation?

    That is a fascinating question to debate CBE because Eli has missed the playoffs several yrs excluding his 2 Boston upsets. He doesn't necessarily have monster 5,000 yard passing seasons. What would be intriguing is if Manning only had the 2007 SB victory on his resume because that victory was so remarkable & unexpected with the Pats only loss that year 18-1. Eli has gotten a ton of mileage out of those 2 SB wins even though Easy E hasn't exactly played elite ball for over a decade like his brother did. You're probably right. Taking down Emperor Palpatine & Darth Vader with a supermodel wife carries tremendous cache indeed.

    You might be on to something there NM. I'd love to ask that question to T-sizzle 1 on 1 privately in Baltimore. Suggs is a straight shooter. I admire that about him.

    What's your take on the Ravens QB situation?

    Well written post DD. I agree completely with your statements I bolded in red. I don't understand how 2 field generals who usually play below average in the regular season can come alive & play lights out in the post season if they somehow manage to slide or back into it. I'm a firm believer in winning from the pocket vs using your legs on jailbreak plays. I don't see Jackson as the Ravens heir apparent face of the franchise either. Aaron Rodgers wasn't that great out of college & he revamped his footwork & throwing motion & became elite. However, I don't see Lamar following in similar footsteps either. Ozzie does have a knack for selecting diamonds in the rough so, I can't call Jackson a lost cause just yet. Flacco certainly hasn't built on his Lombardi Trophy achievement though that is true. No argument there.

    Peyton talks Colts on NFL Network

    I guess there is a danger in minimizing how hard it is to get to the final series, round, or individual game especially for athletes like Peyton, LeBron, Serena, Woods, & Federer who have played at the pinnacle of their profession so long that when they don't with the SB, NBA trophy, the Masters, or Wimbledon; we start to wonder if they lost a step since their level of excellence has become so commonplace like clockwork. Exactly, nobody dreamed INDY had us in the Deflate Game period. I liked the fact that for awhile there we had Denver's number. INDY didn't need to embarrass them. We just did what was necessary to win & close the door on Orange Crush--A club with a top secondary at the time. I'm no expert on baseball. However, I can see how elevated expectations among diehard fans change the dynamic in Chicago. They are no longer lovable losers anymore as a franchise, but a dugout with more demands & heat on it now. Hardware tends to do that. Amp up the pressure to repeat or return to glory vs become complacent. Well said.

    Yeah, I'm with ya on the SB or bust/Green jacket & US Open win or forget about thing buddy. I know of course how hard it is to get to a Championship Game, SB, or Finals series & how devastating it is to lose there. It bleeping sucks man. Screw good sportsmanship & congratulating the victor man. I'm sort of kidding, but not really. LOL! I'm still not over the Colts 2009 season & losing to the Saints. I realize that neither you or I played in that game of course, but as loyal fans it feels like yrs were taken our lives. I'm still bummed that Duke took down my Badgers in NCAA Mens Basketball Championship Game not that long ago. Oh well, can't win em all unfortunately I guess. Thank you for being honest CBE. It's why I respect you so much. You speak the truth. Yep, NE would rather get knocked out in the playoffs instead of getting to the SB & coming up short. It's why I feel bad for the losing HC who is mandated to speak to a reporter after losing the most watched game in the world. It's like pouring salt in an open wound & asking does it hurt? Give a pain scale of 1-10 would ya. Thanks. Appreciate the shout out regarding my cinema reviews bordering on an obsession. I just like movies because they speak to the human condition: Love, betrayal, rage, humor, companionship, apprehension; loneliness; bitterness, enlightenment; & contentment. We either endured these mental states ourselves in our lives or we want to forget them or reminisce about them as we grow older. The reason why I always accompany my reviews with music is because it acts as my score to leave my audience with an impression that lingers after they see the film or rent it down the line. Music resonates with people. It gives us our depth, range, & overall impact thru the good times & not so good times. I will PM you one of these days. I still need to get back to RR7, NFLfan, & a few others first. Rest assured, it's a mutual admiration society CBE from my POV as well. You have a tremendous sense of humor & you have a knack for cutting thru all the sports jargon & getting to what matters or the only thing that truly matters--How events really get judged or evaluated yrs later. Take Care. The checks in the mail CBE. How many zeros would you like on the check? 6 or 7? I wish.

    Beautifully stated CBE. You are the man! Spot on too. I can't dispute anything you said nor would I want too. I do feel bad for Lebron though. Works like a dawg to get to the NBA Finals only to have a less than desired outcome for the Cavs. I hope life is treating you well & you're dominating putt putt golf. A man's gotta have his priorities in order ya know. Seriously, you're a good dude & among the elite posters on the forum. You know your s**t man.

    Height, Weight, and Position updates

    I hear ya bro. The reason I dislike social media in general is because I really don't care which place makes the best grilled cheese sandwich ever or a million selfies of yourself in a gallery doesn't mean you're important or an internet sensation either. It tends to foster self gratification & narcissistic tendencies overall. Yeah, pettiness gets on my nerves too CR91. I totally agree 100%

    I always defend the regulars I like NCF. Not that you need backup or anything naturally. We all need an ego boost or advocate every now & then right? You're welcome.

    Sand traps, water obstacles, & wind vs LBs, defensive ends, & safeties. I beg to differ with your overall conclusion there AZCA. Yes I know, opinions vary.

    Until Woods wins a green jacket again no one will fear Tiger anytime soon. Trust me on this one. He's a ratings darling sure, but feared? Nope. Not until he breaks through again. If ever again that is...His back is the bane of his existence & will render him irrelevant moving forward in my view. As far as the scope of posts a person has is concerned, I believe I have fully explained my POV in this thread. No need to elaborate any further on the matter. Life goes on... Welcome aboard sir.
