He Has Risen

The Resurrection is real people.  And no, I am not talking about Easter.  But if you put it that way, this may be an Easter of sorts….an Easter for one.

tim-tebow-playoff

Tim Tebow is gracing the NFL with his holy presence yet again. I don’t know about you, but frankly, I am quite excited about this revival.

giphy

Throwing the words “resurrection” and “revival” could be a bit of a stretch, but hey, who am I to hate on one of Jesus’s football disciples? Granted Tebow never went to Notre Dame, but I am sure he has a poster of “Touchdown Jesus” pasted up on one of his walls next to his Florida Gator crucifix.

Just like Jesus, Tebow has seen and experience adversity in his days. The NFL maliciously swallowed and spit out Tebow 2 years ago, leaving him nothing except his unrelenting faith in GOD and in the good graces of the almighty SEC Network.

The comeback of Tebow is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited. And to top it off, I couldn’t think of a better city to open up their loving arms and embrace the God Squader like a brother than Philadelphia.  Although the Philadelphia Eagles already have a so-called “quarterback,” Tebow could be the perfect accessory to Chip Kelly’s fast-paced offense.

Will Tebow get any action? Who the hell knows. He only signed a 1 year contract agreement. As a die-hard USC Trojan fan, you would think I would be rooting for the ladder.  Don’t get me wrong, I am fully pulling for Matty Barkley to dazzle the City of Brotherly Love with his cannon of an arm and Little Rascal smile. Also pulling for Mark Sanchez to fully recover from his butt fumble concussion and come to realize that retirement would be more of a favor to the entire sports world than just himself.

nfl_g_msanchez1_sy_576

But you have to admit, there is just something about Tebow that is unrelentingly charming. Setting aside his “Don’t Get an Abortion Because I Was Almost One” SuperBowl commercial, Tebow has a great attitude on his shoulders, a contiguously positive attitude that many could and should envy. Can’t hate a guy for trying and trying and trying and trying to make his dreams come true.

tim-tebow-haircut2

Rooting against Tebow is like rooting for Moses to drown in the Red Sea or for Joseph to never find that Technicolor Dreamcoat. No…..that’s just wrong.

And the best part of all? Tebow-ing will be making it’s comeback with a vengeance…..in PRETZEL FORM.

NFL Bust a Nut

The NFL Football Draft is almost upon us and the prospective picks are definitely the “buzz.”  But can we really take these meat heads seriously?

THE-MORTIFIED-PUNTER1

In fact, can we take any professional football analyst, NFL scouts or coaches seriously?  Can we trust their judgement when it comes to selecting players who they deem worthy enough to take them to the Super Bowl promise land? It’s important to remember that more than half of these analysts, scouts and coaches were former football meat heads themselves.

Asante

I love College Football, but honestly come NFL Draft season, I can’t help but get a little discouraged. Not only do you feel for these players whose futures lie in the decrepit hands of 60-something men who are either geniuses or don’t know what the hell they are doing, but you also can’t help but get your hopes up.  “Future of the Franchise” they will say!

johnny_swivel.0

If you are a football fan, you can easily count the number of NFL busts. Although the list may be plentiful, it is still soul crushing to recall the fact that these once great athletes are now either in jail, on weight watchers, making PURPLE DRANK, addicted to drugs, etc.  It is the type of sad feeling that makes you evaluate and reflect on your own life and the choices you make along the way.

jamarcus-russel-drank

Hello, have you seen Moneyball…?!

What isn’t sad is predicting the next upcoming NFL busts.  Maybe because it has yet to happen or makes you feel like a Jedi Knight predicting the future, but the point is that these players’ reality has yet to set in and the potential for them to “bust” is up in the air.  Feelings of grief and sorrow may or may not occur.  So hey, don’t feel bad!

zgtu

So here are my top 5 predictions for this year’s potential NFL busts.  The players on this list aren’t necessarily newbies or rookies.  Some are players who have played professionally for a few years and are on the verge of “busting.” SO let the judging begin.

 

1. Jameis Winston

jameisrollin

Jameis Winston seems like an obvious choice for the top pick in the 2015 draft. He not only led Florida State to an undefeated season and a national championship, but he won the Heisman Trophy behind some incredibly efficient numbers.

However, this past 2014 season?  Not so much. With 21 touch downs and 17 interceptions this year despite an offense with a massive talent advantage, I highly doubt that he has the budding future of a franchise QB.

Jameis-Winston-crab-legs-face

His long list of off-field antics is just embarrassing.  His shameful behavior has caused many to doubt whether he is too much of a risk to consider a franchise quarterback.  You have to admit, any 20-year who has the college football world at his feet is going to have some indiscretions under his belt.  But steering clear of the “no duh” obvious, a professional man would exercise some civility.  Yea, good luck with that Crab Boy.

2. Johnny Manziel

Oh Johnny.  Where to begin….?

Johnny-Manziel-Flips-Bird

Short, Frail, Incompetent, Party Boy, Immature, Out of the Pocket Scrambler, Fugly…..these are just some of the words that accurately describe Johnny Football.  Although he was an exciting player to watch at Texas A&M, he has barely seen any noteworthy action in the Pros.

For starters, he didn’t make his first start until the season was all but lost.  When he did start, let’s just say that it didn’t go so well. In total he has only thrown 175 yards with ZERO touchdowns. Go Team Hoyer.

16467005-mmmain

All he has been actively demonstrating is his lack of respect.  Although he may not look the part, he is definitely a Gronkowski “Meat Head” wannabe, partying it up every chance he gets (My apologies for sullying the name of “Gronk,” the meat head actually has a Super Bowl Ring).  Manziel’s partying ways took him all the way to rehab prior to his upcoming 2nd NFL season, which could more or less be the stark realization that he may not be cut out for the NFL limelight.

Not exactly sure if one can surmise that he is not talented or dedicated enough for the game, but one thing is for certain, he is well on his way to becoming a bust.

3. Mark Sanchez

OMG, does this guy suck.  I have to admit, I DO love saying that 🙂

mark-sanchez-dramatic

Although he has played a number of years in the NFL, Sanchez has yet to experience any well-deserved credit for his less than stellar athletic ability.  And who the hell would give it to him anyway?

In his four years as a starter for the Jets, he was historically bad at playing quarterback, a fact that didn’t stop the Jets from signing him to a multi-million-dollar extension. Also, lest we never forget: the butt fumble.  One of the most glorious moments in NFL history… well not if you are a Mark Sanchez fan.

1865f6xuc7wtugif

The “Sanchise” quarterback is now the backup in Philadelphia, Nick Foles #2, another Pac-12 quarterback who didn’t nearly experience similar success at Arizona University.  My the tables have turned for Dirty Sanchez.

Mark-Sanchez-Scared-by-Drayton-Florence-of-Buffalo-Bills

 

4. Colin Kaepernick

meriweather

This may be a long shot, but Kaepernick’s performance towards the end of the 2014 was anything but stellar. With the sudden departure of his winning head coach Jim Harbaugh, the expected trade of their powerhouse running back Frank Gore and locker room shenanigans erupting, Kaepernick’s fate seems a bit muddled.

Sure he runs like a gazelle and has made a Super Bowl appearance, but without strength in leadership as well as support from his fellow teammates, Kaepernick may surely lose it. He can be just as disposable as his former mentor, Alex Smith.

Alex-Smith

However, I do have to acknowledge the fact that Kaepernick wasn’t necessarily a top pick coming out of Nevada.  Being drafted in the second round isn’t bad at all.  But when the label “NFL Bust” is flung around the locker room, it is assumed that the player in question was initially expected to perform at a high level before seeing any professional action.  I am not sure if high expectations surrounded Kaepernick during the draft, nevertheless, his performance this last season along with the ambiguous future of the 49ers may mark the beginning of the end.

(Yea, you tell him Sherman)

 

5. Ray Rice vs. Adrian Peterson

adrian-peterson-and-ray-rice

The issue among these two players isn’t based on their athletic ability.  It’s their off-field antics that may haunt them for the rest of their lives, so much so that they may not recover.

Both were caught in the act of beating one of their family members publicly, who were then dually reprimanded by the NFL, forcing them to leave the game in the 2014 season.  Although Rice’s actions erupted a mass attack on the NFL and their domestic abuse policy, Peterson’s “debatable” actions also ignited an open commentary on corporal punishment.  It was so serious that the NFL had to give up a precious Super Bowl commercial slot addressing domestic violence, losing millions and millions of dollars, money which could have been allocated towards something that benefits everyone, like beer.

Simpsons-Homer-гомер-пиво-1144798

Public perception has the keen ability (and perhaps burden) to either positively or negatively effect an individuals’ appearance and character.  Despite evidence to the contrary, that perception can be everything, especially in this digital age where information is at everyone’s fingertips in an instant.

This wouldn’t be your feel good come back story of the season folks. Rice and Peterson did some not so nice things and people will not let them easily forget, score a few touchdowns and collect their checks. Public opinion may never let these athletes recover.

Bill_OReilly_Fox_News_The_Fact

Despite the setback, I am certain that both Rice and Peterson will return to the NFL. Whether they return triumphantly is highly questionable.

 

New York I love you, but your AFC Team sucks balls

jets suck
Did anybody see the Sports Center segment talking about the Jets…..or the one before that….or the one before that talking about the Jets?  Yea, it’s the same FREAKING  update.  But if you missed it, here is one for good measure in case you have been living under a rock, this one will catch you up to speed

Get the drift?!  Mark Sanchez sucks and the Jets really have no idea what to do with Tebow let alone the entire team. Of course GM Mike Tannenbaum and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano would get fired by Woody Johnson because he can’t and won’t fire head coach Rex Ryan.  Tim Tebow is in disarray and heading to Jacksonville to put himself to goood……..shit…even SOME use.

jets0814

What the mofo is going on with the Jets?!  Seriously, I have never seen a team fall into such disaster and embarrassment in my whole short life.  Maybe I haven’t lived long enough or maybe the Jets 2012 truly sucks beyond sucks.  It is so difficult to just focus on one issue because there are so many, too many for one football team to deal with in one season, Jesus Christ.  No wait, Jesus christ could actually be one of the issues, god damn you Tim Tebow and your god christian like prayers before each game, yea now where did that get ya….?  funny_jesus_7_0-s432x547-168274

I think we would all just love to blame somebody, but there are many people to blame, and one of them is NOT Tebow.  Tebow merely served as a publicity distraction for the team, which definitely back fired.  Tebow is just the victim in this whole Jets mess, a team that lured him in, swallowed him and spat him out, leaving him rejected and alone on the streets of New York.  Boo to the New York Jets for using a dedicated kind-hearted player like Tebow without even USING him.  The type of “using” where you try and hang out with the popular kids so you can get recognized in the cafeteria.  The Jets used Tebow to gain some popularity and publicity for a team in a city that doesn’t even need recognition, it’s NEW YORK fuckin’ CITY.  I don’t think anything goes unnoticed in the Big Apple.  Shame on you Jets for using an innocent young jesus loving man for your own selfish gain, and for what?  Gain of nothing. Pack your bags, we’re heading to Jacksonville!

new-york-city-times-square-at-night

Mark Sanchez should have been benched a long time ago.  But I gotta say, he made one of the worst and most entertaining plays of the year, running into his own lineman during the Thanksgiving game against the Patriots.  Pure Classic Dumb Ass.  I love it.  Thanks Dirty Sanchez, you will never live that one down.  The guy is straight up the WORST QB in the NFL this season.  And why didn’t Rex Ryan take a hint?  Why didn’t Woody Johnson threaten the Fat Man and put his job on the line if there wasn’t a change?!  Well, he likes the Fat Man around, his jokes, his jolliness.  Hell he brings Christmas cheer all around….so he must view Dirty Sanchez as one of his little elves….that’s it!  But wouldn’t one of Santa’s Little Helpers actually help?  Well, there goes that analogy 😛

mark-sanchez-fumbles-off-of-his-teammates-butt-in-a-play-that-pretty-much-sums-up-jets-patriots

new-york-jets-owner-woody-johnson-checks-his-cellphone-during-the-first-half-their-nfl-football-game-against-the-detroit-lions-detroit Woody Johnson has already made some drastic changes in the head office, firing the GM as well as the offensive coordinator, Tony Sparano.  I guess Woody thinks he can fire everybody except the two guys who are causing the problems.  Whatever, it’s his team right?  As long as he feels comfortable signing those checks, then A-OK brotha.  Apparently Woody Johnson “trusts” Rex Ryan.  Trust eh?

How is this for trust.  Last week, Rex Ryan was sporting a beautiful tattoo while vacationing in the Bahamas.  The tattoo appears to be of a woman, his wife?, wearing only a green jersey with Mark Sanchez’s #6 on it and posing in the “Tim Tebow” crouch or stance or whatever you call it.  Classy Rex….classy.  That tattoo isn’t even funny…it wouldn’t even be funny if the Jets had a solid season with Sanchez as an effective QB.  It’s insulting a god squadder for doing what he knows best, praying.  Putting that religious crap aside, Tebow is a good guy and shouldn’t be made fun of by his own…well temporary….coach.

rexweb5s-1-web

Well it will be an interesting off-season indeed.  I just can’t wait to see what is in store for the Jets.  I wish HBO’s Hard Knocks was following them this year, but sadly they are not.  The Jets would be morons is they agreed to let HBO film their tumultuous off-season shenanigans.  Great Entertainment, Bad Publicity……Oh wait……th

Whatcha smokin’ Rex?

Someone seriously needs to fire this weight watchers drop out of a coach.  Rex Ryan just seems to be exercising poor POOR judgement.

rex-celebrates-copy

Ryan has decided to make Quarterback Mark Sanchez his starter for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.   Despite third string Greg McElroy winning the game for the New York Jets last week.  Keyword here…”WINNING.”  The Jets haven’t done a whole lot of “WINNING” with Sanchez starting. No Sir E BOB.

This is what Sanchez had to say of last week’s quarterback change, “It was probably the worst and best experience of my life.”  HmmmmmMMMmmm, let’s just stick to the best, the best for the JETS.  Worst for Sanchez.  You SUCK SANCHEZ.  You know it and all of New York City knows it.  That’s why they be cheering like it’s the Superbowl when McElroy was put in the game against the Arizona Cardinals, rallying the Jets to a 7-6 victory.  That must be a really sucky mcSUCK feeling for you Mark….but in truth….that is the reality of this situation.  Fool has 18 turnovers, including 5 in the past two games.  DUDE, YOU SUCK.

jabbatheryanandsanchez

(Greatest picture ever)

Ryan popped into a quarterbacks meeting early Wednesday morning and informed the trio, which includes Time Tebow, that Sanchez will start Sunday against the Jaguars. A short time later, Ryan broke the news to the entire team, mentioning his decision in passing during a scouting breakdown of the Jaguars.  Dude, that must have been a silent middle finger moment from Tebow and the entire team. Seriously, when a team is obviously struggling, a team’s whose quarterback has brought nothing but humiliation and embarrassment to a city that is used to sports glory….(oh wait that’s why they got the Giants and Yankees.   Well, can’t have em all I guess), it is a bitch slap in the face to keep starting your weakest link, your LOSER of a player.

NY Jets

Does Sanchez seem motivated by this position?  SHOOooooOOOOt, I would hope so.  But no, I bet you anything nothing is going to change.  NOTHING.  Sanchez started off on the Jets as a coddled baby who has never had to worry bout his job security.  “I think Rex was more or less sending a message, and it was well received,” Sanchez said. “I know. I get it.”  You GET IT?!?!?!  OMG part the motherfuckin’ clouds, Dirty Sanchez GETS IT!  Wow, this quarterback is one smart dude, it only took him 11 weeks to get it.

Ryan’s hope is Sanchez will benefit from his much NEEDED time on bench, saying it can be a learning experience for a player to take a step back amidst a slump.  A slump?  Dude he SUCKS.  I have no idea why it took this long for Rex to get off his high weight watchers horse and make the change.

Mark-Sanchez-Sucks

Ryan also made it clear he won’t tolerate reckless turnovers, strongly suggesting he will have a short leash on Sanchez.  NOW you decide to have the short leash.  Dude, took you long enough.  That would be soo sweet if he took out Sanchez after the first fumble or interception.  Now THAT my friend would be keeping the short leash!

It’s not even about Tebow anymore.  It is about the JETS and how the team is going to start being competitive.  “This kind of thing affects people’s lives and careers. It’s not just, ‘Oh, man, bummer.’ It’s not like that. This is serious,” Sanchez so genuinely said about his situation negatively affecting everyone.  Oh man, bummer you SUCK Sanchez, you either have yet to step it up as a player or your team will most likely be subject to more embarrassment (if that is physically possible).  If you are really looking out for this team and are aware of the severity of the situation, pull yourself out of the game.  Be a man yo.  Stick up for your team, play another QB because you clearly have failed far too many times to have your team fully support you.  That is why the locker room is such a minefield of chatter and gossip.  The O line can only do so much.  Sanchez just doesn’t know how to play under pressure…….clearly.

Sanchez

Sanchez SUCKS.  But wait!  There is still time for redemption.  Watch him play a hell of a game against the Jaguars Sunday, 4 touchdowns, no interceptions….yea in our Tebow dreams.  Even Tebow’s GOD can’t save Dirty Sanchez.

The real issue is Mr. Rex Ryan.  He be smokin’ that shizzzz cuz he ain’t thinking straight because he is continually starting Sanchez week after week.  Would make more sense if they were the Denver Broncos or the Seattle Seahawks with this new legalization of weed….but NO.  There is seriously NO EXCUSE.  How many chances does this kid get?  Good GOD.  Sucks to be a Jets fan, that’s fasho.  Just put those fans out of their misery already and end season, fire Rex and start a new QB. FO REALZ….

humpty

Jesus would start Tebow…..

Tebowmania has yet to take place in NYC……and why is that???  One name: Dirty Sanchez.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For those of you who don’t know who Dirty Sanchez is then stop reading this blog. Seriously, he dirty.

 Dirty Sanchez and company are the reason why Tebow has yet to start on the New York Jets.  Head coach Rex Ryan is sold on Dirty Sanchez and wants to continue starting him the rest of the season, blindly leading the Jets to another dismal season.   Despite struggling again in a 23-17 loss to the Houston Texans Monday night, many fans and media are beginning to get sick of “suggesting” to start Tebow.  “Yeah, no question,” the Jets coach said Tuesday without hesitation when asked if Sanchez remains the team’s starter. Wait wait wait Mr. Ryan, There is just one question! : Why was Tebow even traded in the first place?  What is he doing for the team?  Is he fetching holy water for the team, warming those cold benches or actually going to play a full rotation for once?  Tebow did throw the best pass in that game against the Texans, even though the god squadder supposedly “can’t throw.”  What gives?  

 

 

Dirty Sanchez has completed less than 50% of his passes in four straight games, ranking last in the NFL.  Hmmmmm that falls under the same ranks of one of the BIGGEST NFL BUSTS quarterback Jamarcus Russell (Jabba the Hutt Russell)  love that nickname dubbed by Steven A. Smith, that is def a keeper .  If people are starting to compare him to Jabba the Hutt Russell, than you got problems.  The freaking Jets have only scored 3 touchdowns in their last 4 games.  3 touchdowns!?!?!?!?  Granted the team has lost one of their best receivers, Santonio Holmes, as well as defensive players, Darelle Revis…..come on, that’s why you have backups and practice and build different players around those unfortunate absences.  Backups….hmmm..why does that sound soo appealing right now…? Sounds like it could (or should) be the beginning of the end for this Dirty Sanchez…..

I understand why Rex Ryan has no desire to bow down to public pressure, especially from the outspoken fans and media, because he doesn’t want his job put in jeopardy.  But it seems to me that it already is.  Woody Johnson, owner of the New York Jets,  told CNBC he wants Tebow on the Jets for the remainder of his contract – through 2014.  “Are we going to keep Tebow? Absolutely,” Johnson said. “He’ll be with us for three years. … I think he’s going to be a real valuable asset in terms of helping us win games.”  Unless he is teaching Bible Study to the players, Tebow has yet to be a valuable asset to the team.  

Johnson, the man who WANTED and CHOSE to pick up Tebow after Denver let him go, also has expressed support for the fizzling Sanchez, suggesting that he will never benched.  Say what?  “Never is a long time period,” Johnson said. “But I see the same things in Mark Sanchez (as) when I first met him … We think he’s that good. He really is that good. I wouldn’t look at the numbers too seriously. A quarterback’s job ultimately is to win games. Mark Sanchez has proven that he can do that.”  Yea…..when he was  Trojan :/

Your not going to look at the numbers too seriously…..?  Are you kidding me?  As a business savvy owner of a team in the most lucrative sports league in the world, I would hope that numbers do matter…a lot.  Dirty Sanchez wasn’t always this bad, but this is definitely marking one of the biggest slumps of his career.  If the Jets manage to lose to the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday, the outcry for Tebow will be deafening.  All of this and more is probably getting to Dirty Sanchez, massively psyching out the douche bag.  Should we feel sorry for him?  Hell no.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dirty Sanchez has been given his turn in the spotlight, been given a million chances and hasn’t performed.  Give Tebow a chance, use the guy, shake things up for the Jets, you got him for a reason right?  What is the harm in starting Tebow and ending the game with Sanchez?  Clearly, they aren’t using Tebow to his full potential and it’s unfair.  It could be a bit early to tell, but Sanchez is dunzo, sit his ass down and start anew.  If the Ryan decides to roll the dice and start “the play maker” Tebow and they lose, that will shut everybody up.  Maybe the Jets just suck even with Tebow but how the hell are we supposed to know if their Butterball of a coach won’t start, let alone play, the guy?!  Sorry Rex, but it is inevitable that you are going to bow down to public pressure and play Tebow because your Dirty Sanchez just ain’t cutting it.

You gotta ask yourself this old question:  What would Jesus do?
