With Signing Day behind us, we have a little bit of a dry spell. Sure, there’s Spring ball but that’s just clutchin at straws to get your football fix. We’ll be here with our warped take on it all, though. For now, I’m still reveling in Tom Brady getting punched in the gut yet again by the Giants. As a Dolphins fan, this is almost as good as seeing the Phins win it all. If Belichick had read my clock management post a few weeks ago (clearly he didn’t) he would have let the Giants score on 1st down instead of 2nd down. Brady with 2 timeouts and over a minute might do some damage. 1 timeout and under a minute didn’t cut it. At least he realized the quandary he was in (i.e. the Giants looking to kick a 20 yard field goal with 20-something seconds left) and laid down on 2nd down. The indecisive Ahmad Bradshaw was sweatin out that last Pats drive like Don Imus at the Apollo. In the end, I think the better overall team won, though neither should be considered an elite, all-time great team.
- It was pointed out that Belichick and Brady have zero Super Bowl rings since being busted for spying on other teams. All their titles have asterisks if you ask me, and Dan Marino is still better than Brady or any other quarterback that played in the pros.
- Good to see the Canes hoops team beat Duke at Cameron. Well, I didn’t see it since it wasn’t on my local TV. But, I was following the live tweets all the way. If they make it to the big dance, they could do some damage (and by ‘damage’ I mean possibly make it to the Sweet 16 if they’re lucky).
- This has nothing to do with football but someone told me that if you type ‘repeat’ after ‘youtube’ in the url, the video will replay automatically. Do what you wish with this information. I plan on replaying a Creed song on my buddy’s computer and then hitting keyboard lock.
- It’s never too early to look towards the 2013 class. Miami recently got a verbal commitment from Jayron Kearse, Jevon Kearse’s nephew. Other Floridian prospects for next year with solid DNA are Kevlin Taylor (son of Fred Taylor) and Ray Lewis III (son of Ray). Depending on what comes down from the NCAA this year, I would expect next year’s class to be just as solid (though surely not as big) as this year’s.
