BC coach fired for Jets' interview

I don't blame BC,or any other team.It's all about the almighty dollar and the lure of becoming an NFL Head Coach.Going to the NFL doesn't guarantee your going to last.Just look what happened to Crennel of the Browns and the other head coaches who got fired this year.And they had NFL backgrounds!Should of stayed at BC where he had job security.

Hello World! Rays beat Bosox in Game 7, Advance to World Series

Matt Garza pitched the game of his life.Boston took them to seven games but just couldn't get the timely hits that was needed to win.Congrats to the Rays and their fans.I'll be rooting for them to win it all.The bad part is the Red Sox lost.The good part is that it wasn'to the Yankees.Rays went from worst to first which is quite an accomplishment.Just wondering what the Cubs and their fans are thinking what they have to do just to get to the World Series,never mind win one, after watching what the Rays did this season.But the Rays are facing a good Philly team.Phillies in 6.

The Hoser's NFL Picks, Week Two 2008

Hopefully the Patriots and the Matt Cassel era will continue their winning ways against the Jets this week.Beating the Chiefs was one thing,Cassel vs the Jets and Favre at the Meadowlands might be a little tougher than beating the lackluster Chiefs at home in week 1.Only time will tell if Cassel has what it takes to be an N.F.L. QB. A.F.C.East there for the taking maybe for the Bills,Jets,and Dolphins.Although I'm still not counting out the Pats just yet.

Pavlik beats Taylor. Again.

I would love to see what Marvin Hagler would do to Pavlik and Taylor if they were around when The Marvelous One was the Undespituted Middleweight Champ back in the eightys.Neither one would stand a chance against him.I think by far he was the best middleweight in his day,if not the best ever!!

Dungy: Nothing has Changed

Jim Caldwell is all set to take over the reins as soon as Dungy decides to give them up.Not only is Dungy a class act,but Caldwell also seems dedicated to wait until that happens.Both are classy guys,and not many such as Caldwell to sit and wait until a head coach waits and decides his fate with the team as the head coach.

Patriots advance to their 4th Superbowl in 7 years.

Outside of New England,I've got to agree that the Patriots fan base is practically none.It seems that alot of people want to see the Patriots lose the Super Bowl just because of the history that is at stake here.They don't want to see them go 19-0.I can see maybe why the Dolphin fans don't want them to win,even though the 17-0 mark has been broken,it's the undefeated season as a whole thats at stake for them.Call them cheaters,or what ever else some people want to call them,but what everyone is going to witness if the Patriots do win the S.B. is that this years Pats team will go down maybe as the greatest team ever to play the game of football.

Superbowl: Patriots vs. Giants 2.0

Giants played a great game in that frozen tundra they call Lambeau Field.Eli had a great game and seemed to throw at will against that Green Bay defense.I thought that the Packers were going to win it in O.T. when they won the coin toss.But when Favre threw that pick,I knew it was over.Favre has had a great career,and has a Super Bowl ring(1 but correct me if I'm wrong)I think it's time for him to hang up the cleats and retire.One more Super Bowl would of been nice for him,but I think it would be the right thing for Bret to retire with all of the records that he holds.Next stop is the Hall of Fame.

Letting the fans know that they are getting under his skin just makes them get louder and gets more people into it.Rivers has got to learn to let that trash talk go and just play football,what he's being payed to do.He's going to hear alot of it this coming weekend here in Foxboro.The fans at Gillette Stadium will have him eating right out of their hands.

Patriots Extend Perfect Season to 17-0

Micheangelo and surgically precise is exactly what Tom Brady and the offense did to the Jaguars did last night.Except for the missed field goal as mentioned above.The defense has got to start tackling better,and Harrison has got to stop getting them stupid 15 yard roughing penalities.The Jaguars are a big team on both sides of the ball.I guess trying to stop them big receivers and backs has been hard for any team.Anyhow,congrats to the Jags and their fans.They just couldn't do what 17 other opponents weren't able to do and that is to stop Brady and the offense.

Clemens Files Defamation Suit

If anyone watched the 60 Minutes interview,it seemed to me that he answered some of those questions in a round about way trying to avoid some of the questions such as the one about the lie detector test.I personally think Clemens is as guilty as anyone else mentioned.He went out and filed a lawsuit and is trying to clear his name in that form of way.I guess they are all innocent until proven guilty,but this has tarnished the game of baseball and all the players mentioned to the point where it'll be hard to clear not just Clemens' name,but all that have been mentioned.

I'm the first one to say that the Jaguars are going to be A DANGEROUS TEAM IN THE PLAYOFFS!!

How Do You Get to 16 - 0?

That S.I. column pretty much sums it up I think.Of course you've got to have the players and the coaching to accomplish what N.E. has done.You take a look some teams that have won the Super Bowl one year,then the next year they barely make the playoffs or don't make them at all.Except the Colts.The Patriots have won 3 of the last 6 Super Bowls.They seem to be able to get players and get the most out of them simply because of the winning attitude they seem to have and the confidence in each other as a team.There was a time when teams saw they had New England on their schedule,in most cases it was like an automatic win.Just show up and you get the win.Not so anymore.The change in ownership,bringing Belichick in as head coach.All of the positive things that Kraft has done with this team,and we are no longer the doormat of the NFL here in New England.Going 16-0 was a great accomplishment.Going 19-0,and another Super Bowl would be the icing on the cake.Of course you've got to have a little luck and get some breaks,in which the Pats did.But hasn't every good team gotten them breaks and that luck?Oh and by the way FOOTBALL CREW,the Patriots did get them breaks and had a little luck against Baltimore,but it takes good players and coaching to know how to win them games,something Baltimore didn't have.So please put away your crying towel and just give credit where credit is due!!

Patriots are perfect 16-0

Are they becoming a well hated team because of their winning,or are they being hated out of jealously?Either way, you can't look past of what they've accomplished as a team,or the personal records that Brady and Moss broke. Somewhere down the line they'll be a team to break the record,a quarterback t to throw more TD passes,and another receiver to catch more TD passes.As a Pats fan,I'm going to enjoy the ride that we're on right now.Hopefully ending with a Super Bowl victory.

Patriots are perfect 16-0

Thanks steeler_fan.Some people just can't get themselves to see how good of a team N.E. really is.It doesn't matter what happened in the Baltimore game,the Indy game,or any other game where they fell behind.The bottom line is winning those close games.You can't give Brady second chances or he'll make a team pay as he did last night after Hobbs intercepted that pass.The Patriots have beaten playoff teams.Pittsburgh,Giants,Cowboys,Colts,Chargers,Jaguars,and the Browns if they make it.Pretty impressive I think.All the asterisk bull,all the"But Baltimore really won that game bullshit, just give the credit that the Patriots deserve?They've been down and almost out in a couple of games,but what seperates them from all the rest is that they have the killer instinct to win those close games coming from behind.Sure ,you've got to have a few things go your way,such as the boneheaded timeout against Baltimore and the penalties,but it's what they did to win that game.You can't give a well coached team with Brady and the talent they have on that team chances to beat you.No matter how you look at it,they're 16-0.The first team to do so in the regular season.Three more to go,and then that will be a perfect season.

For all of you talking about coaching loyalty, an interesting development ...

I personally don't think that ALL THEM coaches could win with this team,no matter how good the team is.Belichick is one of those coaches that no matter how good you are,he thinks that there's always room for improvement.Brady could go 30 for 35 for 400 yds with 4 TD's,and I'm sure he could find something wrong.He seeks perfection from every one of his players no matter how good they were the last game.Every game in his mind can be better than the last. There's no doubt that N.E. is the best team in football right now.How they got there is Bill Belichick getting every bit of excellence out of his players each and every week.They practice and study film hard.Of course it helps having the players to work with.

Balitimore DID HAVE the Patriots beat,no doubt about it.But for the screwed up time out and the penalities hurt them.You can't make mental mistakes,or any mistakes against a team like the Pats. The Patriots took advantage of it.Give Tom Brady and the offense 2nd and 3rd chances and 9 out of ten times he's going to make that team pay for it ,in which he did.If in fact N.E.loses to the Giants,congrats to them.Like I said in an earlier comment,"spygate"and the first five minutes of that first game did not infact have anything to do with the outcome of that game ,or the next 14 they've won since.Last week they were held scoreless for the first time this year in the second half.They have to play better against the Giants,or they will be 15-1.If they do go 16-0,it'll be a great accomplishment.If they end up 15-1,oh well.They still had a great season.There's one thing that every team plays for and that is to win a Super Bowl.Undefeated would be nice,but another Super Bowl win would be a whole lot sweeter.

butterfingers,don't you know that teams have more than 1 set of signals and they can be changed at any time. Are you really that gullible to think that the Pats opposing teams keep the same signals the whole game?Not just teams playing the Patriots,but any game on any given Sunday.So what your trying to say is all the Patriots victories come from signal stealing,or 75% of them.The Patriots have a team full of talent,and have built teams that know how to win.Do you really think that they are that stupid to continue to do something that made them look like s--t.The Indianapolis Colts have been an excellent football team for several years now.What,2 or three 3 14-2 seasons,with another one on the way this year?It's called a team with alot of talented football players on it ,just like the Patriots.The two best quarterbacks in the league.Teams like them don't need signal stealing to win.It's called good coaching and execution of the play calling.It's obviously your not a Patriots fan.But I think it's time for you to realize that the Patriots are the best team in football right now whether you like them or not

Giving up Ellsbury I think would be one of the biggest blunders since the Lou Gorman era. Ellsbury is the future centerfielder for the Sox.Giving up Lester and Coco Crisp and some other prospect-prospects I wouldn't mind seeing.Ellsbury has the bat and some speed on the bases,includind his hitting ability which he showed when they replaced him in center field over Crisp.As for the Tigers,right now on paper they have a lineup thats at the top pf the AL.

Blockbuster: Tigers agree to aquire Cabrera, Willis from Marlins

I think D-Train will have a tough first year as did Beckett pitching in the American League until he gets to know the American League hitters.I know there are probably going to be people saying that could be the opposite,that it takes more time for a batter to figure out the pitcher and his pitches.What ever way anyone wants to look at it.As for Wins,Losses,and Era,I think all three are stats to look at when looking at a pitcher.But losses can be a deceiving stat,especially when,say the starter is taken out of the game in the 7th inning and leading 5-4 with two runners on,and the reliever comes in and gives up a couple of hits and them runners score,the starters going to get the loss because he's responsible for them runners that were left on base.Yes losses can indeed be a very misleading stat.

Last minute rally moves Patriots to 12-0

Whether a team goes undefeated or not and makes the playoffs is going to fight like hell to win the Super Bowl.
