SportsFilter: The Sunday Huddle

I think it was a tightly contested game with the Patriots playing significantly better in the first and the Broncos playing better by the end of the game. I don't think the Boncos were playing that much better though, just more desperate. That comeback from being down 21-7 in that weather was already pretty damn unlikely and I don't think it happens without the fumble luck and the refs blowing some key calls.

except that the Broncos had equally as many bad calls or no calls in that game.

No, the Broncos definitely got the long end of the stick, and I say that as a Bronco fan. The Broncos got most of the calls and some really high leverage ones. If that game was officiated well the Patriots would have won.

Pace Mannion NBA Pick 'Em Contest: Week 5

>That's when we both began to understand what Kobe had meant to his team and the league for so many years.

Yeah, I think most fans are on board with that now. The Eagle, CO incident still looms here for Nugget's fans. Last I saw him was the playoffs in 2012 and there were a couple "No means no" chants and he was roundly booed every single time he touched the ball.

Lakers' only appearance in Boston (Dec 30) is on my must see list, just to see Kobe one more time.

I'll probably check them out here in Denver just to see if the crowd continues booing the living crap out of him. Kobe's been public enemy #1 around here for years but I'm curious to see if he's become too pathetic to boo.

SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle

Harden was great in last year's playoffs. He was nearly unstoppable in games 1 and 2 of the conference finals and the Rockets lost those two games by a combined five points because Golden State is really good and doubly so at home. When Harden has bad games they can go really bad but he was the primary reason the team went to the Western Conference Finals and, on the whole, had an excellent playoffs. Howard played that series with a torn MCL and did pretty well for a guy without a burning desire to win. Again, the team went to the Western Conference Finals, I think they've proven they can win.

A game being called evenly is suspicious?
