  1. Dr. J went to Hempstead HS with my mother’s youngest sister; when he was on the Virginia Squires they would hang out when he was in town...he was also a regular playing ball at Kennedy Park and it was major cool points for me and my brother when the other kids heard him say to us “tell your Aunt Pat I’ll call her later”... Howard Davis, Jr. moved to Hempstead after he won gold at the 1976 Olympics; I used to cut his grass Met Jim Brown at a lacrosse clinic@KP and Willis Reed at a basketball clinic @Hofstra.
  2. Riley would be a fool to give up the autonomy he has @ Oklahoma. He signed a 5 yr/$32.5 million contract last year...plus all the other perks that come with it...so money won't sway him; to coach in DAL means he has to be mindful not to cast a larger shadow than Jerry Jones; last 2 coaches who did that (Jimmy Johnson and Bill Parcells) got canned...where in Norman, OK he gets to call all of the shots and his star can burn as bright as he can make it. OU is a perennial winner while DAL is a .500 team in the Jerry Jones era. If I were he, I wouldn't answer any calls from the 214/469/972 area codes; there is no upside in going there.
  3. Bills had the division in their grasp until they came up small on Saturday night. Don't be surprised if they rest people next week and lose to the Jets...or even if they don't rest people and still lose to the Jets.
  4. This is why I hate the Bills...they come up small at the worst possible time. Bills win would knock NE to 3 seed at best even if NE won next week and without a bye NE is toast
  5. I thought the Bills were supposed to have a league leading defense....they finally get the lead and they get more passive?
  6. If an asteroid takes out the stadium, the Bills fans that made the trip would be collateral damage in the destruction of wicked pissah flying Elvis nation...I have no beef with Bills fans; I have cousins in Buffalo who ar3 die hard fans but I’ve hated the Bills since OJ got to 2000 yds against the Jets at Shea...I hate the cheats and their fans with the white hot heat of a thousand suns tho...
  7. Is it just me or is anyone else watching BUF-NE and hoping an asteroid falls from space on Gillette Stadium? God I hate both of these teams...
  8. With spygate, it was told that the people filming would wear Kraft Productions windbreakers with team provided field credentials...but Beli's response has always been to throw someone else under the bus...like when he was asked about deflategate,is response was "You have to ask the QB about that..."
  9. He had both knees on the ground and still had the ball. That was the second blown call by the replay official; the other being the punt on the BAL possession that ended with the punt block. The ball hit both the BAL player's shoulder and his foot and Gase's challenge should have been successful.
  10. They were able to pressure Brady with 4 and drop 7 into coverage and on all of the shallow crossing routes every Pats receiver took hits and paid a price... that also messed up the timing of the NE offense to a degree. Anytime a NYG DL could hit Brady, they did. That's how they beat them.
  11. That wasn’t a gift; if Belichek hadn’t blown a challenge early in the game he’d have been able to challenge it. If Harry catches that in the last 2 mins, it’s a touchdown. Chiefs didn’t win because of the refs though...they won because Brady has become a noodle arm. He was the second coming of Joe Kapp; everything he threw was weak and fluttering. That got the Pats several questionable PI calls because Brady severely underthrew his receivers especially on throws outside the numbers. The only pass he completed over 20 yards was the touchdown to Edelman and that was severely under thrown as well. In the past the 4th down pass knocked away by Marcus Peters would have been 6 but the ball had nothing on it and it gave Peters time to recover. The receiver was open by NFL standards; Brady couldn’t get the ball to him. Unless Roger Clemens gives him his HGH dealer’s number, Father Time has knocked him down for the count, IMO. They’ll still probably win the AFCE but the division leaders in the other 3 divisions have already beat them...2 of them in Foxboro...
  12. Thanks; I was scratching my head for a sec there...because none of what I said even insinuated politics...
  13. how is it political? The NFL is not a government agency...
  14. A Harvard study of every draft eligible QB for the last 25 years shows implicit bias is baked in where white QBs are spoken of in terms of intangibles....leadership, intellect etc and rarely about their athleticism...and black QBs are spoken of almost exclusively in terms of their athleticism and deemed lacking in those intangible qualities white QBs...even god awful ones...are assumed to have. I was listening to Nick Wright's show tuesday night on the way home from work and he was discussing this very thing with Mina Kimes from ESPN. They said it is so baked in that you can tell whether the scouting report is on a black QB or a white one just by the things complimented and criticized without ever seeing the school or the QB's name...for instance while most college teams play some form of a spread offense you hear constantly as a criticism or concern of black QBs whether they can get the verbiage of calling a play in a huddle right or take snaps under center and almost never hear the same criticisms or concerns regarding white QBs coming out of the same system. That's the thing that gets Paxton Lynch and Christian Hackenberg selected long before Jacoby Brissett or Dak Prescott...
  15. And that will matter when he starts wearing a flying Elvis helmet...
  16. The last season Kaepernick played his stat line was 59.2%/2241 yards/16 td/4 INT in 11 GS. His qb rating was 90.7 and 62% of his passes were thrown from the pocket and his receivers were Torrey Smith and Jeremy Kerley on a horrible SF team coached by Chip Kelly coming off of injuries that limited him to 8 games the prior season and kept him out of the first 4 games of that season. He was a middle of the pack QB which is what he always was...as good as many and better than most of the QBs who have played and are currently playing in the league.
  17. Lyle Alzado did it to Chris Ward in a NYJ-OAK playoff game at the Coliseum... that’s the only other instance I can recall in the last 50 years or so...
  18. Rob left money with the Jets to sign for less with AZ... but he grew up in Hempstead (he graduated from HHS with my younger brother) and given the choice he felt his best move was to put a whole freakin' continent between him and his family in Hempstead...
  19. Skins problem is Jay Gruden didnt want to draft Haskins and since he was drafted, hasn't wanted to play him, even saying in the lead up to last Sunday that the only way he would play Haskins was if their season was "over" and they were out of contention...yet down 14-0 to the Giants in the 2nd qtr he is putting Haskins into the game...most likely at Dan Snyder's insistence...which explains his postgame truculence when asked if Haskins would start next week...
  20. That probably had more to do with the Browns having Eli McGuire active for last night’s game...now that they won, they’ll be cutting him in 3...2...1...
  21. Until it passes he's at risk for a ruptured spleen...which would probably end his season.
