  1. The Jaguars under Bradley offer a serious argument if they are worse than the Mike Ditka coached Saints.

      I like Mr. Crowley for the way it's arranged on guitar. It's a fairly complicated song, and the solo is really unique cause of how layered out it is. I am not big on Ozzy stuff, but I always respected Randy Rhoads incredibly, cause he was a guitar genius. 

       

      Max Norman the producer for those albums, once said that Rhoads would layer his own solos in the studio by himself with no help, and he had never seen another guitar player as smart as him in the studio. Most solos in metal a lot of times are done on "takes" and crafted together, but not the solos on the Ozzy albums with Rhoads. They're layered out into 3 separate tracks of guitars, and he often is using two different guitars when he does this (his tremolo equipped V and the Les Paul)  

       

      This kid I talk to is trying to nail the "Les Paul tone" he had, and I had to explain to him how all that is layered out and that's why the guitar tone changes a bit in the solos, and that's not always a Les Paul what you're hearing on the record.

      Last thing tonight, I saw Jerry Jones on tv and he is GLOWING. The man is positively in old rich white male euphoria with this win streak and his new prized baby QB.

       

      Jerry Jones is the arch-type, rich white owner, with an ego, I can't stand him. 

       

      Wait till Dallas loses again though, he is going to be on the sidelines going nuts...I watched some old Cowboys games from 1992 over the summer, and he was even on the sidelines going nuts back then when they had close losses. No wonder Jimmy Johnson left, he probably put up with so much crap from him.

      I hate to say this but Dallas IS due to reach another SB. They're long overdue. Historically, they have never went a drought like this, but no way would I pick them to win it. They probably could take advantage of a weak NFC team but their defense would be their death for a deep playoff run, and I'm not a firm believer in a rookie QB winning it all.

       

      I think Kurt Warner is the only "first year" QB to ever win a Super Bowl and I would not even say that, cause he played 4 or 5 years in the arena league and was quite experienced at 29 years old.

      LeBron proved all his haters,doubters and critics wrong...He finally got the respect he's deserved. I will never get why people hate that man so much. He broke down crying like a baby when the buzzer hit. That championship meant more to him than anything and I got chill bumps when he said "Cleveland this is for you!". I hated LeBron for years but I learned a valuable lesson in sports when Favre retired and that is that we need to ENJOY these guys while we have them cause they won't be around forever. Instead of people nitpicking them to death, they need to just enjoy the ride cause once they're gone, they're gone forever

       

      At the doctor's office today, there was a kid there telling me and another person about basketball and he kept saying "Bron James is my favorite player!". He was talking so fast, it was hilarious he was saying 'Bron' instead of LeBron and adorable. I told the kid I liked LeBron too and he tells me "he can do everything! He blocks, he scores, he can dunk!". Kids can be so funny in times.

      I can't wait for basketball myself to begin again. Really looking forward to it.

       

      I am a bit worried now, my cousin David picked the Lions for Sunday. Thats often a bad sign.....he is pretty good at predictions even though he is a m*ron. I hope he is wrong but these are also picks against the spread so it means the Colts can win by 1 to 3 points and the Lions still won and covered.

       

      Oh btw, Cam did get beat the hell up last night badly. I hate to admit that since I was so worked up and mad but yeah he got hit in the head too.

       

      Oh and I think David picked the Saints to beat the Raiders, in his group they were only 1 point faves.

      Yeah they can get chippy but then again this is also playoff basketball at it's highest level.

       

      It's going to be MUCH rougher in the finals. We have to face Draymond and Zaza, think about that and let it register. It's like going against two Nazi Guards. Kevin Love is going to have to be at the TOP of HIS GAME. He's the pretty talented 3 point shooting white guy and you know he is the one they will go after. 

       

      Since well they all go after Kevin Love.........

       

      Boston actually plays a lot like the Warriors will against the Cavs with dirty big men and guards who can hit loads of 3's.

      I think regarding YouTube, since Prince passed away some of his video's are being blocked for some reason or are phony's for some reason. I noticed that too when I tried to watch a couple.

      Prince fought Youtube for many years, however he officially threw the towel back in February. NPG restored the videos that were taken down, by Youtube users that filed complaints and asked for it to be brought back up. This was a big controversial thing back in February, where a bunch of those videos were brought back on Youtube, and the users got emails from NPG records representives (NPG is Prince's private label)

       

      Once upon a time Prince used to be very very hardcore with this stuff. I have a friend on Youtube who does guitar videos, and he did videos of himself playing solos and riffs from Prince songs years ago, and he had a lawyer representing Warner Brothers come at him for using those songs in videos. That was about 5 years ago, that's the height of how bad they were over Prince stuff but rest easy, he threw in the towel and gave up 2 months ago. 

       

      Those videos with the audio blocked are older ones before this year.

      The Warriors seem to be out of sync with Mike Brown as head coach. Tonight, Green shoved Curry out the way to go scream at a ref, and then get into a cussing match with his coach. I'm beginning to think Kerr's best talent is putting up with this A hole. When Kerr is gone, no one can contain Green's outbursts. 

       

      I think you are right, without Steve Kerr.......there is nobody to control Green. Green is being TERRIBLE. And honestly he was having a lousy game for the most part tonight. And I didn't watch it as closely but Green shoving Curry? lmao wth?

      Now the Warriors are being compared to the Bad Boy Pistons cause they tied some playoff streak that the Bad Boys had. :facepalm:

       

      I wish the Warriors had to play that Bad Boys Pistons team, that would be hilarious to witness. That team would not put up with Draymond Green's crap at all, he would have a few cracked ribs by now after trying to kick someone. As fragile as Curry is, he wouldn't survive two games without someone putting him out. Old Isiah Thomas, Dennis Rodman and Bill Laimbeer did not play nice. 

       

       

      Comparing them to the bad boy Pistons is hilarious. lmao

      Green shoved Curry out the way to go yell at a ref during the 2nd quarter. It was when he had the technical foul and Utah went on a 22-9 run after that. He also cussed and yelled at Mike Brown. 

       

      Do not forget the Warriors have yet to play a 100% healthy team. Just like last year...Portland was missing a key player and Utah is banged up too. The Spurs will be banged up as well. 

       

      I notice GS does not defend the paint at all. Even worse now with Mike Brown coaching them. This makes me feel better about the Cavs chances, cause LeBron and Kyrie will attack the paint for sure. Durant is not the antidote for stopping LeBron. If anyone seriously believes that, they need to watch this video and then tell me how useful Durant looked against a good defense. 

       

      Tonight they went iso with Durant too, which if they do that against Cleveland or even San Antonio, they're not going to win. 

       

       

      The Heat with LeBron were in attack mode in this series. It was all attack. The Cavs are starting to play like this again. Attack, attack, attack. LeBron isn't scared of anyone. 

       

      When Durant gets exposed he becomes a turnover machine. It's seen in that game 5, but it was also seen last year when he and Westbrook accounted for 10 turnovers in less than two minutes vs Golden State in game 6. The reason people don't believe in Durant is because we've seen this time and time again.

      Comparing them to the bad boy Pistons is hilarious. lmao 

       

      That Pistons team would provoke Draymond Green so easily into a brawl and getting him suspended, it wouldn't even be funny. It would happen so fast, and I doubt Curry would survive a few games against them as fragile as he is. 

       

      I actually see Golden State compared to that team a lot and I don't get how...We saw last year how fragile and injury prone that team can be. The Pistons would knock Curry out in just two games.

      I wouldn't put MJ at my #1 at all...Maybe the best player of the 90's, but I don't think he was close to being as good as some of the others, let alone the GOAT... MJ had a lot of help too from Pippen and later Rodman, those Bulls teams always had decent benches. I'd take LeBron over him, as the all around player, and same for Kobe. As much as I liked Kobe, I never thought Kobe was the all around great player that LeBron is. The difference being leadership; LeBron truly has matured the past few years and plays to get everyone involved. Kobe used to drive me insane trying to take every single last shot. 

       

      Kobe wouldn't have any of those first 3 championships without Shaq...The biggest mystery in recent sports is that we have no idea how many championships Kobe and Shaq could've won together. I was happy that last year, Kobe FINALLY realized how important Shaq was to him and made that comment that he wished he would have appreciated him more back in the day. Those two had no business hating each other for years. They should've been a duo, cause they were so perfect together in their primes.

      Karl Malone was damn good too but like Marino no Championships. That is how many greats there have been as that is why I have LeBron at 10.

       

       

      Shaq begged Karl Malone (and Gary Payton) to join the Lakers in 2003, and they did. I always felt sorry for Malone cause I think that was his last season; they got to the Finals and were stomped by the Pistons. Neither Malone or Payton ever won a ring in their careers but they made the Hall of Fame.

      Worth noting too - the NBA has changed a lot since a lot of these guys played. 

       

       

      In Wilt's day, there was no 3 point line at all. it's amazing how much he dominated with no 3 pointers. 

       

       

      The rule change in 2002 to allow zone defense has probably changed the game more than ever....A lot of people say the NBA is "soft" now and too easy, but I don't get where they come up with this. Zone defense has completely changed the game inside and out and rendered a lot of older offensive styles completely useless. It has made the game far more difficult for the super star players, and has pretty much led to the shooting game for teams like Golden State. 

       

      Jordan himself was against the change of rules, saying that he wouldn't have had the career he had if he had to play with zone defenses back in his prime. 

       

       

      A lot of the players really hate zone defense too. This is a great video if you wanted to see a thorough break down of how zone defense has changed the NBA inside and out. This is a really great video that shows the differences in defense, and it has a lot of stuff from players talking about how much they hate it.

      I think LeBron is a Beast and todays best but after watching Jordan, Magic, and Bird growing up I don't see him doing anything that those guys didn't/couldn't do and those guys stayed with the franchises that drafted them their whole career in their primes and won Championships. LeBron in a lot of peoples eyes is a Top 5 player of all-time and many have him ahead of Bird. There are some that rank him as the best ever but I just don't see it. The media today blows a lot of stuff out of proportion as soon as a player wins a Championship or 2, they want to label them the best ever. I watched Magic Johnson growing up and LeBron isn't better than him, Magic may be the best leader in sports history. He won the Championship in his Rookie season and won MVP of the Finals with Kareem injured. He dominated a whole decade when he had the Bird's Celtics to deal with, Doc's Sixers to deal with, Hakeem's Rockets to deal with, then the Bad Boy Pistons rolled around in the late 80's. Magic could beat you without even scoring by getting 15-20 Assists just setting up everyone. I just don't like how the media dismisses what players have done in the past on the spur of the moment because they want to hype up todays best. They do it with Curry too, Curry isn't even a Top 20 player of all-time but he won unanimous MVP last season. The media was ready to put Cam Newton in the Hall of Fame after last season and he stinks this year for example. Andrew Luck has been way better than him this season. When I look at LeBron and Bird, LeBron is the better athlete but doesn't have near the killer instinct Bird had and wasn't near the Shooter or Rebounder Bird was either. Bird was nasty too, he would take a person out if they drove they lane LOL.

    IMO I think the last several NBA rings have looked better than Super Bowl rings. The Pats ring from 2014 being an exception, while a lot of rings have looked generic lately. I thought the Lakers last 2 rings and the Miami Heat ones looked better than SB rings.

      Well gee, no wonder NFL ratings are down. Who wants to watch the Jags-Titans throw down? lmao

       

       

      Lakers have a brutal schedule of road games but they could be OK...They looked like a completely different team last night. They haven't passed the ball around like that in years. This could be the resurrection of the Showtime Lakers of the 80's, at least I hope. I greatly miss seeing that kind of effort and all around team work with an LA team. It's what we get from watching LeBron these days and the assist stats he puts up. 

       

       

      No problem Southwest, I forgot one picture though. The bottom of the ring has 7 jewels, white and red showcasing the 7 series (red in wins, white in losses). Absolutely beautiful rings, they really put a lot of work into it.

      I didn't touch the NFL game. One look at who was playing and that was enough for me. I hope the NBA ratings blow the NFL out the water. Would be hilarious 

       

       

  16. The NFC South is the first division since the realignment in 2002 to have all four teams reach the Super Bowl. 

     

    But I'm sure come 2017 season, we'll be told how this the "worst division" in the league for another year - All four teams have made the SB, with Carolina making it twice, two of them have won Super Bowls (2002 Tampa, 2009 New Orleans).  Since 2002, there has only been one team win it back to back and that was Carolina in 2013-2015. Beyond that, every year has had a different division winner and the divisional match ups can be incredibly unpredictable. 

     

    The only other division with the same number of success has been the NFC West who has sent 3 teams to the SB (and the Rams made it in 2001 the last year before the realignment) 

     

    But yeah! Worst division in football!

He was on here a lot and it probably helped him cope with every day life because it allowed him to talk about sports to hundreds of people.

      The only thing you have to hang your hat on ahead of time is that a Brees led team has often shown up vs. the Pats, even in a loss.

       

      But this was the Brees teams without the slow child abusing aazz.

      My dad has a lot of issues now from a few incidents playing high school football. He got crunched on special teams and still has a pinched nerve in his neck.

       

      I often did running and jogging at times too. More jogging though and I still sometimes do it but on a treadmill not on the road. I don't like to hit the road much with working out anymore. Too many creepy people out there. lmao 

       

      I still sometimes figure skate too but thats not like it once was when I was competitive with it. I help out a young girl at times in it and still can do stuff but I don't jump anymore on the ice.

      I never have put on a pair of skates, if I did I would probably fall flat on my face. That's awesome you were a figure skater! You really have to be in shape to do that. I broke a growth plate in my ankle playing Basketball when I was in HighSchool and so my left foot has always really bothered me off and on, I just ignored the pain and soaked it after running most nights but as I have got older it's got worse arthritic wise. The Treadmill is a great way to stay in shape. I have used it a lot as well besides running outside on the streets. Running on the streets is really rough on your feet and knees.

  19. So happy Bama lost. As payback, the Pats can win it all now or Dallas. i don't care. You rarely can have it both, so I'll compromise out of sake of Bama losing. :goodluck:

      All fair points but I think getting a Ring for a QB is much harder than it is for a Superstar Basketball player who has control on what happens on every possession. Dan Marino is major proof of this. The guy never had a Great Defense his whole career, hence 0 Rings. Warren Moon same thing. A QB can only control what happens on Offense. You named a few QB's that have won without being Great/at least Very Good but it doesn't happen much. What 4 or 5 times in 50 SB's. I also disagree that Denver wins the SB without Peyton last season, they would've never got by the Patriots without him  and with Brock, even Peyton haters admit this. Regarding LeBron winning 3 Rings, I think it's a Great accomplishment but when everyone is comparing you to Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson than the expectation to win 5 or 6 is just there. Most people in the media put LeBron in their Category and even put him above Kobe and Bird so he should win more IMO. He also didn't win a Ring until he joined Wade which is a bad look. LeBron's Championship last season was his best one by far, it was his team and his city. Winning with Wade and Bosh is a given for any Superstar player that is hyped as the next Jordan. Wade is arguably a Top 20-25 player of all-time and Bosh was the equivalent to Pau Gasol. Kobe won 2 with a Bosh type and not even close to a Wade type of player.

      Warren Moon had a lot of problems as to why he didn't get to the big one. It all began with the racism from the NFL owners who wouldn't draft him in the 70's. Some could argue that Moon probably owns the record books if he started his career earlier, cause before the current era, Moon's numbers were right up there at #2 next to Marino. Moon went into CFL after the NFL passed on drafting him. 

       

      Moon's other problem was Bud Adams...If you want to write a book about horrible NFL owners, I think Bud Adams is the Jack Kennedy of NFL owners and has the most dirt and it's not hard to find reasons to hate him. He of course, blamed Moon for a playoff loss and traded him, but before that, Bud Adams meddled with that team so much, he made them dysfunctional and created lots of issues. 

       

       

      I would agree on Dan Marino. I think Marino is the greatest example of a team failing a quarterback. If Marino just had ONE ring, absolutely no one would make fun of him. He would've went down as the greatest quarterback to ever play the game if he just got one ring. 

       

      I highly recommend watching the ESPN short series "Top 5 reasons why you can't blame Dan Marino". That little mini-documentary goes into specifics as to how the Dolphins really failed Marino on all counts. He went 18 whole years without having a running back rush over 1,000 yards. At one point, they literally had a UPS driver off the street play running back. 

       

      The Dolphins had a streak too of defensive draft busts. All through the 80's, all their defensive draft picks were major busts. Of that era, they have a lot of first and second round draft pick busts. Miami didn't hit on a defensive draft until the 90's and by then, it was too late...

       

      These guys played in an entirely different era too...Even had they got to the SB, it's no guarantee they win it cause the NFC dominance lasted from 1984 to 1997...and most of those SB's were boring bloody blow outs. Even if Moon or Marino get to SB's, it's a big question of "if" they would've won, cause those NFC teams were juggernauts. Marino had to play the 15-1 49ers who just crushed everyone that year. 

       

      Marino could've went to the Super Bowl four other times - 1985, 1990, 1992, and 1994. 

       

      My gut is always on 1994. That was the last year of his career where he was truly amazing and put up a memorable season. They lost in the playoffs to the Chargers in the memorable game with the score 21 to 20. They lost by one point, thanks to a missed field goal....Had they won that game, they go to Pittsburgh for the AFCCG and I doubt Marino loses in his home town of Pittsburgh...but then you go to the Super Bowl and play the Monopoly 49ers who abused the Salary Cap to the max in 1994. No one was beating the 49ers that year, when they threw everything in the bank at free agents and literally bought a SB where they had nothing but All Pros on defense.

      I also disagree that Denver wins the SB without Peyton last season, they would've never got by the Patriots without him  and with Brock, even Peyton haters admit this.

       

       

      Brock beat New England in the regular season...I don't see Peyton winning that game with how crazy he was throwing interceptions everywhere. For all the hate Brock gets, Denver don't win crap last year if they don't get home field advantage and that was Brock's biggest win. Even with home field, they were still barely squeaking those wins by the skin of their teeth. As much as everyone bashes Brock, they still needed every last one of his wins, especially the New England game that they were down 21-7 and he engineered a comeback in OT. 

       

      In the Super Bowl, Peyton did nothing but get them in field goal range. All touchdowns were scored with help of defense and special teams. And Denver got so lucky the turnovers they caused didn't result in points. 

       

      I have no doubt in my mind, Brock could've won it last year. Hell, throw in a 40 year old Favre, who still played extremely well at his old age, and you probably do get TD's rained down in the SB. 

       

      I hate the Broncos. At least we don't have to worry about seeing them in the SB again for another 10 years. Wade Philips is gone too, so no more awesome defense for them.

      I didn't mention MJ for a reason. 

       

      This is what I mean though about the ring argument in basketball, which I've told you before is like a marketing invention. Kareem has 6 rings, 1 more than Magic yet his name never comes up in this conversation. Probably cause Kareem don't have a massive marketing campaign behind him. It's been pounded in our skulls since the 90's "MJ is the greatest". Here we are 20 years later and the media still loves to push this...MJ is like Aaron Rodgers right now, you're just not allowed to criticize him, and I don't see why, cause while MJ was great, there is also other great players out there too. 

       

      Before LeBron, it used to be Kobe who they hated on the most and used the annoying MJ comparisons. Kobe "can't win without Shaq" was a favorite for years. LeBron became the new target after he left Cleveland. 

       

      A part of me deep down isn't going to care if Golden State wins it this year, cause maybe if Durant gets a ring his first year there, maybe...just maybe it will kill the ring argument for good. No one wanted to give LeBron credit for the Miami rings, and they sure as hell aren't going to want to give credit to Durant when he does it.

       

      I'm sure too that after LeBron is done, whatever new awesome player replaces him, will also get compared to MJ for old time sake. It's a never ending story.

      IMO I would easily put LeBron over Kobe. The reason why is that he's just a far better "all around" player than him. 

       

      Comparing the two, I like LeBron more cause he isn't afraid to get others involved on the court. You saw this in Miami when he would routinely pass the ball to Chalmers and Bibby and let them put up 3's. He does this in Cleveland too, as shown in the Finals when he kept getting Kyrie and JR Smith involved in the game...

       

      Kobe on the other hand had a very bad habit of being a ball hog and that is a criticism that used to be common when Shaq was on the team and the entire team used to get frustrated with him going into hero mode often. Phil Jackson had a history of butting heads with Kobe over this stuff.

       

      NBA players should be judged by talent, not rings. Kobe is a pretty good example of being on loaded teams. The Shaq-Kobe team had a really good bench and he also had Shaq in his prime playing lights out. That 3-peat wasn't just cause of Shaq and Kobe, those teams were great all around. The 2008 Lakers also were great all around, and had star talent on their bench. it definitely helped when they had Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom coming off the bench.

      It's like me always trying to make Alex Smith happen when it can't happen. But, I still try to make it happen.

       

      But, I would rather be an Alex Smith apologist then an Adam Lambert fan.

       

       

      Alex Smith needs Jim Harbaugh or some other awesome QB friendly coach that can work their magic on him and take advantage of his skill set. I like Andy Reid, but Smith is just not a QB that Reid can work with. Reid needs someone like McNabb or Vick who has a strong arm and is mobile in the pocket, Smith has neither of these things. 

       

      Adam Lambert on the other hand, needs some awesome producer. And that's assuming, he can let his ego go for a sessions and actually listen to a producer that tells him that he sings out of key and is way off tempo with his screaming nonsense. Oh yeah, and the producer is probably going to tell him to knock it off with the bad, cheesy covers. Doubt he would listen to that either. 

       

       

      lmaolmao I just compared the two, blame it on the meds for my last surgery lmao

       

       

      Seriously speaking though, Alex Smith does deserve a bit of empathy cause Harbaugh knew what he was doing with him. I like Andy Reid as a coach, but it's pretty clear that Smith is not his type of QB. 

       

      Reid likes QB's with cannon arms and mobility in the pocket. It's not going to happen, but if it was possible, I think Reid's new QB would be Dak Prescott. He has the pocket awareness and mobility that Reid preferred out of his QB's, and he has a canon arm. Reid would work wonders with him.

  22. LeBron is having his best season since his 2012-2013 peak with the Heat. His averages are right on par with that MVP season, just a few points off from scoring. Too bad this is the Cavs worst team since he returned, greatly diminishing the possibility of a repeat due to their horrible defense. If Westbrook don't win MVP with his god-like stats, than LeBron definitely deserves it over Harden.

      I noticed this trend in Hollywood to blow the dust off of older films & reboot them 2 decades later: Footloose, Point Break, Spider Man. I think the word original is a foreign concept to CA movie mogul studio executives. 

       

      It's like remakes on steroids, stilts, & a spin the top factory. Eventually, studio heads will run out of films to screw up & over commercialize. One can only hope Bogie. 

       

      If you can't beat em join them, I guess. As a ticket purchaser myself, I'm patiently waiting on the Flash Dance reboot. Bring on Zoe Saldana in the leading role as a welder by day & stripper by night & that famous drenched water dance routine on stage. LOL!
