RICHARD SHERMAN IS WHAT THE NFL NEEDS

Richard Sherman has become a household name over the last week by both football fans and non fans.  He has been called alot of things mainly “thug” but what really what did he do?

Did he commit a off the field violation?  Well if he did do something that was against the NFL rules or policies he would have been suspended or fined.  Did he do drugs or has he tested positive for banned or illegal drugs? Was he arrested or accused of a crime?  Did he curse on national television?  The answer to all these questions is NO.  So then what is America’s problem with Sherman.

The main problem America has with him is RACE.  Truth is a black man with dreadlocks who is screaming near a WHITE woman is scary for white america because they are afraid of what he would do.  As a black person the behavior of some of us have led America to these fears.  However until Sherman does something that is against the rules and the law we cannot judge him based on less than 2 minutes.

Why the NFL needs Richard Sherman? The NFL needs Richard Sherman because number one he does what is asked of him.  Despite the fact that he comes off as cocky  he doesn’t go rogue he plays the plays that are called for him.  What makes him so good?  His intellect and amazing physical talents allow him to make plays that others can’t.  What is amazing?  This guy is playing this well and makes under a million dollars a year.  In the past we have glorified showboaters like Deion Saunders who is one of my all time favorite players.  Look at some of the NFL players today; beating up their mom, DUI, busted with marijuana, beating their wives and having an army of outside children.  Why is Sherman who does not have a record of being in trouble come off so bad?  This is one of the guys with a Stanford Education who after football can get a legitimate good job other than hosting a pregame show.

I love what Sherman said and love what he did.  Like Herm Edwards said…He put his name on it.  If you are the best I say brag about it.  People may say this is not good sportmanship but football is a tough gritty game and I want my players to be tough and gritty too.  I laugh at the media though because they think they are playing Sherman and maybe he is playing them.  2 weeks ago outside of football fans  no one knew his name and now hate him or like him he is a household name.

TRADING RONDO WOULD BE HORRIBLE FOR RONDO AND CELTS

TRADING RONDO WOULD BE HORRIBLE FOR RONDO AND CELTS

 

Since MJ left the NBA my passion for watching the game has decreased.  When the big 3 were picked in Boston it got my interest.  I was not a fan of Ray Allen but I had nothing against him either, I liked how Pierce played and I was a big fan of the Big Ticket KG.  It was 3 players who were stars through their career and past their prime.  The start of their first season resulted in some doubt but eventually they got everything together and won the championship.  The biggest doubts before this were Perkins and Rondo.  Rondo was widely considered not a suitable PG for a championship caliber team.

Fast foward a few years and Rondo is considered one of the best PG’s in the league. How did this happen?  It could be from being around great mentors like KG and Paul Pierce and a coach like Doc Rivers.  It could be from being apart of championship team.  Most of all it comes from Heart.  Rondo may have been drafted by the Suns in the first round but I am sure no one really expected him to be one of the greats.

Rondo has one downside…HIS SHOT.  His free throw and shooting percentages are not great for a point guard and that is his big downside.  His upside is on the otherhand is incredible.  First off his speed Rondo is very quick and crafty on the court which allows his team to run well.  Rondo’s passing is amazing and as of late has been either on top or near the top of the league in assists.  His ability to get to the rim easily opens up the floor for his teamates.  His toughness allows him to get a decent amount of rebounds especially considering he is just a point guard.  And if you say any list of the top 5 PG’s in the league his name has to make the list.  So why then would trading him be so bad?

Well to Rondo it would be bad because for one it is unlikely that he gets to be traded somewhere he will get to stay.  Any team who is trading for Rondo is looking to Win and Win now.  Meaning that a team trading for him have for the most part veteran players and a couple years looking to rebuild themselves.  Also being trading in the middle of a season when you are just returning from injury its difficult to build continuity.  Another big problem is that lately teams trade for the big names. That is a good thing but there are times that those players won’t fit into that coach’s style and the success will not be achieved.

On the Celtics side is bad because you have a face of an organization in Rondo and you would be trading him.  Coming across an athlete and competitor like Rondo is not an easy task and if you have him it’s best not to let him go.  Letting go Rondo would be bad because I never think you will get value for him.  You may get some draft picks but it is hard to say if those players will materialize into stars. You also have to keep Rondo because he is the last piece from that Championship team and he can show the young guys what it takes to be winners.

IN CONCLUSION RAJAN RONDO SHOULD BE A BOSTON CELTIC FOR LIFE

NFL CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKEND RECAP

NFL CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKEND RECAP

Starting off I will admit that I was 0-2 this weekend but there were certain keys two both games that I will go into.  This was one of the greatest football weekends in a long time.

I wondered at the beginning of the weekend why wasn’t the Patriots Broncos game the last one seeing that it had the marquee matchup with Brady and Manning.  I guess however the NFL knew what it was doing when it put the 49ers and Seahawks game for primetime.  The key to this game was when Talib went out of the game; That pretty much sealed the Patriots fate. All of the time that he was in he was able to shut down Demarius Thomas and when he went out Thomas was able to shred their not so good defense.  Make no mistake  that the scheming by Belichick actually gave them a chance defensively but eventually their flaws were exposed because Denver has way too much weapons.  The Pats should be applauded for their success so far because they have done so without alot of key pieces.  On the offense Welker was now on the Broncos, Hernandez is in jail, Gronk out again and besides Edelman they have no real receiver because Amandola has not lived up to expectation.  On defense big pieces like Spikes and Wilfork didn’t play.  In the end Congrats to the Broncos but would have hoped that pats had more of their people so we could have had a better game.

San Fran and Seattle OMG!!!!!! this game might be better than the superbowl.  It was the perfect game; one that it was a 50 / 50 chance for anyone to win in the last 50 seconds.  It was a great game and who could have asked for more. It did prove one thing that I have been saying in the past; that Kapernick was not playing well as a quarterback.  This was against the best defense in the league and it showed his flaws.  His running ability and strong arm allowed him in the past to get away with some fundamental mistakes in the past but not against this amazing defense.  He ran very well in this game but he threw badly.  I think he gave up on alot of plays and instead of using his legs to open up passes downfield he chose to run alot of the times.  Make no mistake he was successful in the running game but he made too many mistakes.  He tried to fit in balls that were bad decisions and on that last play instead of throwing up a ball that only Crabtree can catch; he threw a jumpball into double coverage.  Coach made one big mistake and it was not in this game.  His big mistake was picking Kapernick over Alex Smith.  Alex Smith would not have made those bad throws and I believe with him they might have won the superbowl last year.  But on to the NFC champions; Pete Carroll came up with one hell of a game plan.  Percy Harvin was out and I was surprised the offensive output that Seattle had.  The 3 receivers Baldwin, Tate and Kearse showed toughness and big play ability.  Russell Wilson was able to extend alot of plays with his legs and besides his opening drive fumble took care of the ball well most of the game.  The defining moment however was what Seattle thrived in during the year….their defense.  Richard Sherman was a stud as usual and made an amazing athletic play to tip the ball and enable the interception.  he deserves the player of the game award and I am happy for a team like Seattle who have come a long way.

NFC AND AFC CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND PREDICTIONS

Image

NFC AND AFC CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND

This weekend will be an amazing one of football.  Regardless of regular season records for both conferences most people felt that these were the 4 best teams this year and they made it.

We will start off with the NFC which should be one of the great defensive battles of all time.  Both teams are sort of mirror images of each other.  They both have amazing running games and very athletic quarterbacks.  Seattle should have the advantage when you compare the defensive backs and San Fran may have a slight advantage when it comes to the defensive line.  Kapernick is faster to me than Wilson but Wilson makes the best decisions and is the better quarterback.  49ers by far have a better receiving corp with Crabtree, Davis and Boldin which should be a great matchup against the Seahawks amazing secondary.  Gore and Lynch are both physical “grinders” at running back but Lynch is faster and I would pick him out of the 2.  Truth is this is one of my hardest picks ever and I am thinking this may go into overtime which will be classic.  Two great coaches who players love to play for.  I have to go with the momentum that the 49ers have and pick them to win.  Whether Percy Harvin can play or not will have a big impact on the game.

49ers 19 Seahawks 16

The AFC Championship is like the headliner of a major boxing match. Manning and Brady is what everyone wants to see.  It is kind of sad both are in the AFC so we will never see a Manning / Brady Superbowl but this is the next best thing.  Starting off with coaches John Fox is a good coach but Belichick is incredible and may go down as the best ever.  It is going to always be an argument between which QB is the best.  Manning is thought to be the better regular season QB while Brady has had more success in the post season.  Peyton has 3 great receivers, great running back and a great tight end.  Brady has some unknowns and 2 solid receivers.  It is basically two great offences against two average defenses.  Both teams have great run games that are based on the explosiveness of their pass games.  In the end it will be Belichick with his great planning that pulls of the win.
