Since we last met, the Rams clinched a playoff birth, Mark Sanchez was seen on a football field, and Gordon Hayward came back to life. OBJ and Tarik Cohen threw some touchdowns, Cam Newton threw a lot of interceptions, and Phillip Lindsey continues to make every GM in the NFL stupid for not drafting him. Contrary to popular belief, LeBron James is not washed. Oh, and a belated happy birthday to the Greek Freak, who turned 24 yesterday… that’s right, nowhere near his peak, folks.
Lets see who the crew* has their eyes on for this upcoming week
*Kerm was not able to contribute this week. He’s been working hard in the lab with 808s and Ankle Breaks (LISTEN HERE), so we forgive him.
Lets go back to 2010. At the time, if you were a high draft pick, you could cash in BIG. Top picks were getting contracts that were the market value for the best of their respective positions, and it was creating a problem. QB Sam Bradford, the number 1 pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, signed a 6-year, $78 million deal after being drafted. This deal made him the third highest paid QB in the NFL for the 2010 season (in terms of guaranteed money), all before he ever played a game.
Happy Friday everyone, and we hope you did not miss us too much. Between our last visit and now, Baker Mayfield put the Browns “IN THE HUNT,” the Dallas Cowboys won three (3) games, the Los Angeles Clippers became the top seed in the West, and my Boston Celtics continue to look… bad. With the final handful of weeks in the NFL regular season upon us, and the NBA season 25% complete (more on that here), December looks to be an intriguing month.
Here’s who we’ll be keeping an eye out for over the course of this next week.
Around 5 PM on Wednesday, after having helped set up, I rolled out dressed all fancy for an event at the TD Garden hosted by the Sports Museum of New England (where I work) called “The Tradition.” Continue reading “Bring Back Kendrick Perkins”
If you noticed it under a flurry of penalty flags, the New England Patriots beat the New York Jets yesterday, moving to 8-3 on the season.
Sometimes there’s small moments that occur in a game that end up making or breaking an entire season, a moment where a team either finds its way, or completely loses it. It may end up being inconsequential, but to me, the Patriots found themselves yesterday.
