The Hoser's NFL Picks -- Week Three

I don't agree with half of what you say but I sure like the way you express your opinion. I'll take the Bears by two touchdowns.

Michael Vick Passes the Buck

Maybe thats the reason they are not winning. There are too many "I" s on the team and not enough "Us"s. When people start looking at their own personal accomplishments to justify the teams position, it is no longer a team. Just a bunch of individuals playing for themselves.

Jim Brown speaks about some of the things wrong with the NFL today.

All this protecting of players, particularly QBs is due to the advanced protection the equiptment provides the players. The are so well padded and guarded, taped,masked,helmeted and gloved that they fancy themselves as human projectiles as the hurtle themselves into one another. They believe they are impregnable. Consequently injuries occur in spite of all this protection. If you want to cut down on the injuries and still have a rock'um,sock'um game, allyou have to do is take away halfof the protective gear they have and they will be alittle more careful how they toss themselves about.

Pinella finds something better than a wallet

The long term contract doesn't mean a damn thing. I am sure he Cubs have a buy out figure included somewhere in that contract that will allow them to get out at any time he becomes non-productive for a specified figure at something much less than the yearly figure appears to be. All in all I think it is a good move for the Cubs.

Mike Tyson is a man whore

Well I am happy to see Mike Tyson become a whore. It's always nice to see someone stepping up in class and bettering himself.

Favre angry that NFL turns its back on Robinson

When these guys sign on for big bucks there is a certain responsibilty he owes in return to the team, his teamates and the fans. A lot of these guys want the big bucks and the celebrity but they don't want the responsibilty. What happened here is unfortunate but the players must realize his responsibilities and accept them. In this case he chose not to, so he must pay the consequences. I have no pity for him.

Wisconsin Wants District to Ground "W".

Are they afraid the other schools will be better and thus force them to play at a higher standard?

Joe Frazier is still fighting Ali, three decades later.

His fate is fairly common in the boxing community. Very few boxers have come out of the ring with any substantial money or retirement fund. They are truly the men who believed in "Easy come, easy go"

Fox fires Steve Lyons for racially insensitive comment

I think we are going overboard with this "sensitivity" crap. I don't think anybody was hurt by these comments and if they were, too bad. People get their feelings hurt many times in many ways but they just "get over It" That's Life!!!

Most influential players in NBA History

And not a word about George Mikan, the guy who showed the really big guys that they too could play the game.

12 Year-old Kid Drops Two Aces

I think this kid should invest in the stock market or go to Vegas. He should do some type of gambling while he is still hot. Getting two holes in one is LUCK in the highest degree.

Sources: Favre to play '06 season for Packers

I don't think he will catch Dan Marino if he comes back but he sure has a good shot at most interceptions. Some guys just never know when to quit!

Mike Royko

He was a down to earth writer who really told it like it is whether it be baseball or politics. The best thing about him was: He was a great CUBS fan.

Mark Cuban: I Own Phil Jackson

Mark Cuban owns a lot of things but NOBODY owns Phil Jackson. He is a free thinker and a free spirit. I think he proved that the first time he left the Lakers.
