Review of Day 2

Yesterday we used the Review of Day 1 as our Friday 5. Today we’re doing a review of Day 2 just because we like making lists. We’re adding two more lists this time around. Just like yesterday we still have the five best picks of the day, the five worst picks of the day and the top ten players still available. Now we also have the five teams that are having the best and worst drafts so far (total from Day 1 and Day 2) tacked on at the end. Here they are: Continue reading

2010 NFL Draft Live Blog – Day 2

Just like we did yesterday, we will be live blogging Day 2 of the draft with Bryan taking care of the comments and keeping the flow of conversation alive while I put up each pick and provide my thoughts on each one. Though I was privately criticized by a couple of readers for not taking part in the conversation down in the comments section so I’ll try to do a better job of that this time around. I also feel the need to mention that it is highly likely that the Rams will trade out of this 33rd pick.

Friday 5 – Review of Day 1

Last year we did a Review of Day 1 for the 2009 Draft and Bryan and I decided that we enjoyed it so much last year that we would do it again this year. The difference this year is that Day 1 only consisted of the first round rather than the first two rounds so we didn’t have quite as much to address. So this time we’re simply doing top ten players still available, the best five picks of the first round and the worst five picks of the first round. Here it is: Continue reading

NBA Playoffs Preview – First Round

This is written by somebody who we are hoping will become a regular contributor. His name is Adam and he actually knows and follows the NBA which -as many of you know- is something we’ve been missing from this website. Either way, here’s his preview for the playoffs:

First off, I would like to say that I live in the greatest state for the NBA…Missouri, with two major cities St. Louis and Kansas City and a combined number of zero teams. So that means I have no team, but I love the NBA and always have since I can remember, of course I grew up a Bulls fan (who didn’t)!

The NBA seems to be somewhat rejuvenated from a competitive standpoint with a crop of true Superstars in LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, and many more. Sure the defense is still lax for most of the game during the regular season, but for the Playoffs it is different. That’s why I’ve always said that for the casual basketball fan or the NBA hater that the NBA Playoffs are the time to watch. It’s when the greatest players in the world play their hardest and for the NBA fan, it’s the best time of the year! Continue reading

Holmes to Jets

Santonio Holmes, Super Bowl XLIII MVP, was traded yesterday by the Pittsburgh Steelers to the New York Jets for a fifth round pick. Wow. Wow is all I can say. I don’t have a whole lot of time to write about this, but the Jets just got a steal of a deal, or should I say steel of a deal? Santonio Holmes will be suspended for the first four games of the season because he has a friend named Mary Jane. The Jets will easily be able to survive their first four games without him. The schedules aren’t set yet, but I don’t think it matters. I told my dad (and I’m praying he remembers this) the day after the Colts lost the Super Bowl this year that I thought the Jets would win it next year in response to him saying “well son, there’s always next year” and at that point I had an extremely fatalistic attitude toward everything (see this post) and now I’m basically 100% convinced that I was right, however I am now much more optimistic about the Colts (see this post) and think that they are the only team that might even be kind of capable of standing between the Jets and the Lombardi Trophy next year.

I have to go to class. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Arizona Cardinals at New Orleans Saints

This is the fifth installment of my 11-part playoff preview series. To read the others click on the appropriate one below:

Packers at Cardinals

Ravens at patriots

Eagles at Cowboys

Jets at Bengals

Let me first start by saying that Saturday will be a great day to watch great quarterbacks play at a high level. Peyton Manning in the late game and Drew Brees squares off against Kurt Warner in the earlier game but the Cardinals have had a short week. They played the late Sunday game last weekend and they play the early Saturday game this weekend. I don’t think it will really have much of an impact on the game, but you never know. The real question here is can lighting strike the same place twice? The place being represented by the Arizona Cardinals and the lightning being represented by an unlikely playoff run. Bad analogy? Fine, but you get the idea. This is gonna be a high-powered, high-flyin’, high-energy game that you like to see in the playoffs. Both teams are pass-happy, and score a lot of points. The Cardinals beat the Packers in this very type of game last week. Again, can lightning strike twice? Continue reading
