Weekend Football Thoughts and Other Things

I had to run some errands, so I only saw the first quarter and the very last drive of the Ravens-Patriots game.  Somehow I think that was all I needed to see.

Question: What in the hell was Joe Flacco doing on that 3rd and 1 play after the dropped touchdown pass?  He could have very easily run for a first down.  Instead, he threw one of the worst passes in playoff history.  Make a play, man.  Never put your Super Bowl hopes on a kicker.

I can’t believe that there aren’t more murder sprees at Walmarts.  Every time I set foot in that place, I want to wipe humanity off the face of the earth.  Plus, I’m pretty sure nearly everyone there is carrying a firearm.

With the exception of the Patriots-Broncos game, all of the playoff games have been pretty damn exciting.  The NFL is a lot more fun when there isn’t a dominant team — unless that team is the Indianapolis Colts.  Unfortunately, that’s never been the case.

I saw reports this weekend that the Colts are interviewing Jim Tressel for the head coaching job.  My sources (yes, I have sources) have been telling me for over a month that the Sweater Vest was going to get the job.  I couldn’t be less excited.  If ever there was a guy who was made to coach at the college level it is Tressel.

Also, I’m pretty sure that the Colts’ owner, Jim Irsay, is slowly losing his mind.

Fundamentals, Kyle Williams.  Fundamentals.  Tuck that ball away.  Despite your mediocre quarterback, you’ll take the blame for costing your teammates a shot at the Super Bowl.

Why do they even bother running the clock for overtime during a playoff game?  They’re always going to keep playing until someone wins.  A three-way Super Bowl would be pretty awesome, though.

That sound you hear is ESPN jizzing all over themselves.  Somehow it still won’t reach the ESPN hype of a regular season Yankees-Red Sox game.

At least a Manning gets to play at least once in Indianapolis this season.

You have to love Terry Bradshaw’s commitment to his long hair even with the male pattern baldness.  What do you call that?  A Buldett?
