Atlanta Falcons to Gain the Two Seed in the NFC?

I think Arthur Blank, the owner of the Atlanta Falcons, is ready to let go at this point.

I think Arthur Blank, the owner of the Atlanta Falcons, is ready to let go at now.

One thing pissing me off big time after week 16 is the following… why is no one mentioning that the Falcons have a chance to lock up the number two seed in the NFL? If The Falcons accomplish the highly un-venerable task of defeating the waste-filled Saint Louis Rams in Atlanta this weekend, and the Carolina Panthers are defeated in New Orleans next week, the Atlanta Falcons end up winning the NFC South. We already know that the Giants have locked up the top seed by beating Carolina in OT Sunday night, but the Cardinals at best can finish 9-7 in the NFC West, and the Bears or Vikings can only finish at 10-6 to win the NFC North. What does this mean? Either the Falcons or Panthers are guaranteed the two seed.

But why is no one talking about it? Because every dumb analyst has it in their mind that the Falcons wonderful turn-around in the post Michael Vick mortem was simply in clinching their Wild Card berth. But hello! They can even get a bye! That would be totally huge!

Not only do they overcome last year’s fiasco and make the playoffs with a rookie QB, but they now have a chance to put themselves in a highly viable position of reaching a Super Bowl with one home win and one road win, as long as the Giants win their first game. I mean, geez, they could end up hosting the NFC Championship if the Giants lose their first game!

Someone please talk about it. I’ve watched PTI, Sports Center, and heard every FOX, CBS, and NBC analyst and commentator and not one of them has thought about this. It pisses me off and I almost hope to god that the Falcons get the two seed to see if they all have dumb looks on their faces.

Carolina… pleeeeease lose. I already know the Falcons have the Rams game in their back pocket, so I’m not worried about you. Later.

Fantasy Football: Dance With The Girl That Brung Ya

And to think you took Tom Brady #1

And to think you took Tom Brady #1

Tis the season! Well, by now you have made your run. You are either in the mix for the playoffs/points lead or you are sitting at the bottom wondering what life would have been like if you had not taken Tom Brady or Randy Moss with that number one pick. It is okay, I got bit too in my ESPN pay league but I also followed up the Brady pick with Peyton Manning second. Come on, how could I let the guys that had the top three RB’s have a shot at Manning too? (I’m 3-7)

If you are still alive and kicking or even if you are at the very top remember one thing: DO NOT GET CUTE! In other words “Dance With The Girl That Brung Ya“. The worst thing you can do now is start picking up and dropping guys for the sake of making the roster look good for one week. Someone just today in our CBS league benched Ladainian Tomlinson and played BenJarvis Green-Ellis in his stead. I know I do not have to worry about any of you doing that because our readers are way more savvy.  If you made it to the playoffs go with your gut but beware the trap of trying to gain extra points somewhere with a third option WR because his team is playing a poor secondary vs playing a starting RB who had an off week.  Be consistent and stick with the guys you have the most confidence in no matter what the matchup. You do not want to have to look back at your bench and find yourself asking “How did I not play that guy?”

There is still a reason to watch EliteXC

I have heard a lot of people recently get turned off by MMA due to the “clubbing” that Kimbo Slice received about a week prior. I know everyone from all fight sports is awaiting a new dominate heavyweight fighting champion, and it sucks when a person seems to have the potential but falls so short from expectations. Regardless, I never watched Elite XC for Kimbo. Nope, not at all. My favorite fighter by far is Gina Carano.

Seroiusly she has better technique then kimbo and she is better to look at. Personally I find her to be almost the perfect catch for most young males. Gina is a gorgeous lady who can kick ass as well as party hard. Who could want more. Either way Elite XC still has her and regardless of kimbo they will do just fine. UFC has pissed off way to many good fighers to be able to compete in the long run. Elite XC also has the CBS TV contract on thier side as well.
