Good Luck!



Super Bowl Player to Watch: Jason Pierre-Paul

I'll give my Super Bowl prediction tomorrow, but here's a little insight on a player that everyone should keep an eye on tomorrow.

Jason Pierre-Paul.

Paul, a first time Pro Bowler in 2011, is arguably is the NFL's most gifted defensive end. At 6 feet 5, 278 pounds, and with 341/2-inch arms, NFL personnel men frequently describe Pierre-Paul as a freak and a monster.

The 15th pick of the 2010 draft is quick with his first step, explosive and powerful. He can bend, play with leverage and has good lateral movement. He is quicker, stronger, and more skilled than most offensive linemen.

And you know what, he's still learning how to play the game.  Paul made life difficult for quarterbacks throughout 2011.  He's looking to do the same to Tom Brady.  It's going to take a team effort by the Patriots on offense to stop Paul.  How they do might determine the outcome of the game.


Week 12 NFL Play of the Day: New Orleans

Even though they have lost a few games, I still like the Saints and how thay can score at will on offense.

They take on a slumping N.Y. Giants team tonight in New Orleans and are only giving the G-Men 7 points.

The Saints are rested and coming off a bye week.  They will score a lot of poimts and take down the Giants. Give the 7, and take the Saints.


Serious Allegations Lobbed at Roger McDowell for Gay Slurs

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has a piece running right now that could be very damaging to current Brave's pitching coach Roger McDowell.

McDowell is accused at hurling gay slurs at fans in San Francisco, the one city where you don't want to do that. Now famed lawyer Gloria Allred is involved and that means things will get worse.

Here are exerpts from the article on what McDowell is accused of:

McDowell is accused of yelling "Are you a homo couple or a threesome?" to fans sitting in the left-field bleachers. He's also accused of simulating a sex act with a bat

Giants fan Justin Quinn, attending the game with his wife and 9-year-old twin daughters, said he asked McDowell to watch his language in the presence of children.

According to Allred, the former New York Mets pitcher told Quinn, "Kids don't [expletive] belong at the baseball park."

McDowell, 50, then "picked up his bat and started walking in a threatening manner towards Quinn," Allred said.

He then kept at it with Quinn.

McDowell asked him, "How much are your teeth worth?" The Fresno, Calif., resident said he managed to diffuse further hostilities but was encouraged by other fans who had witnessed the scene to file a report.

Quinn said he reported the incident to the Giants and San Francisco police.

In my opinion, this is very serious and damaging to McDowell going forward. The Braves run as clean an organization as anyone. They won't stand for this. Expect a suspension and a fine forthcoming. In light of what Kobe Bryant did a few weeks ago, this is going to be ongoing news.

McDowell was hired by the Braves in 2005 to replace longtime pitching coach Leo Mazzone. He has issued an apology and the Braves have issued a statement.
