Tim Tebow Two Time Natinal Champion

Tim Tebow Two Time Natinal Champion

I will be the first to admit that I just do not like Tim Tebow. I absolutely want to vomit every time he hits the pull up jumper down on the goal line. Until today I thought he would not make much of a career in the NFL either. However, last night my opinion began to change a bit. Certainly not because the Fox broadcasters convinced me he is the Messiah. (Were they terrible or what?) As I watched Percy Harvin bust that long run to put the Gators back in business it made me think about Adrian Peterson and this year’s NFL playoffs. All year long we had to listen to grumblings about the Vikings being a Super Bowl contender if they had a QB. So I thought to myself who are they going to find that could get them over the hump? They are built to win now. They need a leader on that offense and a veteran is just not going to be available to them and Tavaris Jackson will never be that guy. And I have news for you, Sam Bradford and the rest of the nation’s would-be rookie class of QB’s are no where near the level of last year’s draft class. So forget another Matt Ryan/Joe Flacco type playoff run. Then as the Gator offense got rolling I thought of Vince Youngs performance in both Rose Bowls and wondered if Jeff Fisher wouldn’t roll out the “Wildcat” this weekend with Vince against the Baltimore Ravens.

Then it hit me. Tebow to the Vikings. Just like that. I think he would be the perfect fit for the Vikings offense. He could run that offense all day with Adrian Peterson behind him or beside him. He easily becomes the leader of that offense and probably the team. He is perfect for the role. He would not have to worry about passing the ball all that much. With that defense and that run game behind that offensive line try to imagine having to stop both he and Peterson every down. Thrown in a short passing game the occasional deep ball and a pull up jumper here and there, you’ve got something. No?

jeff fisher Top Ten 10 NFL Head coaches of 2008Mad’Nuff Weekly top 10

From now on Each week I will bring you my top 10 Whatever, it could my top ten sports teams or my top 10 sports drinks, who knows,  This week I will give you the top 10 head coaches for 2008 in the NFL.


1.       Jeff Fisher

Gets the top spot for what he is doing with the Titans right now he knows how to give his team the best chance to win.  They are not the most talented team in the league by a long shot but with Jeff Fisher running the team defense first, run second, manage third the Titans are guaranteed a top seed in the AFC playoffs this year.

2.       Bill Belichick

I hate this guy and he is clearly a cheater in my eyes but he is still a pretty good coach, no one in the league schemes a team like Belichick does and I mean no one.

3.       Andy Reid

Andy Reid and his famous offense are what keep the Eagles winning year after year the Eagles never have any #1 wideouts but always mange to put up large offensive number, mostly in part because of the excellent offensive packages he has.

4.       Mike Tomlin

Mike is the head coach of one of the NFL’s most historic teams and he is only 36 years old, he has taken a team that was .500 before he came to the playoffs in his first year, and it seems like this year the Steelers will be a top seed in the Playoffs.  Mike’s willingness to bend just enough for the sake of his coordinators helps him keep his team winning

5.       Eric Mangini

Mangenius is just that; a genius when it comes to coaching if he could beat his mentor more often he might be higher on the list.  There is not a coach in the league that is able to win as much as Mangini with as little talent.  The Jets are one of the most unimpressive teams when it comes to talent but Mangini has the schemes to turn losers into winners….kind of.

6.       Tom Coughlin

From tough as nails to the players coach Coughlin has turned the Giants into a true football team.  He has managed to get rid of egos, and distractions to get his team focused on one goal another Superbowl.  Many coaches find it hard to keep a team focused after they have won it all but Coughlin knows how to manage players and keep them focused better than any coach in the league.

7.       Jeff Fox

Jeff had caught a few tough breaks in his tenure in Carolina but this year he is showing people what he can do when all the guys he needs to run his system are healthy, he needs a big win this year in the playoffs or he may not make the next list because he will no longer be a head coach.

8.       John Gruden

Chucky, the guy is a maniac but he knows how to win with anybody at the helm.  John Gruden is one of the best at putting his individuals players in the best position to win, it doesn’t matter whether or not it is a quarter back, running back, or wideout John will make you succeed if you are starting for him.

9.       Tony Dungy

The man invented the Tampa cover 2, it is still one of the most effective defenses this year.  With his team reeling he seems poised to earn this spot in the top ten by squeaking off enough games to get a hurt and battered team to the playoffs.

10.   Ken Whisenhunt

The guy is winning in Arizona hell Obama couldn’t even do that.   Whisenhunt is an offensive genius and again anytime you can come out on top as the head coach of the Cardinals you have to be pretty good.


Vince Young Not Smart enough to Start?

vince young Vince Young Not Smart enough to Start?The Titans are 7-0 without the help of Vince Young this year but I think the real reason Vince Young isn’t starting is not because of his skills it is because of his smarts.  Kerry Collins is a manger for the Titans and there is no implication or even thought that he will replace Vince young in the long run.   Vince is a superior talent all round and his skills are not what’s in question.  It seems to me that Vince young just is not smart enough to hold and retain the information it takes to be a great QB.  His learning curve seems to be very low.  The Titans have been unable in 3 years with Vince to put together an entire playbook under Vince’s command.  This is because Vince is just taking too long to learn these things.  Eventually he will and that is the reason he is sitting this year, to give him more time to focus on learning the plays and calls it takes to bring a QB to the next level.


It is no Secret that Vince Young has managed to play well in the NFL but this is off of raw talent and instinct.  Vince’s scores on the wonderlic test at the combine were telling of this but most teams ignored his  very low scores, (I mean the scores almost said he was retarded) because of his upside, and rightfully so.  But it seems that those scores were telling, of what Vince’s situation is now.   Simply put Vince Young is just not smart enough to pick up the information needed to Start for a NFL team at QB and play right  away as well.  He should have sat his first 2 years so that he could learn and then start the 3rd not the other way around which is the case right now.  Now don’t get me wrong Vince is going to be a great QB he practically is right now, but he cannot progress to the next level until he gains enough knowledge to run an entire NFL offense.  

Magic Gone for Indy

peyton manning 267x300 Magic Gone for IndyMagic Gone for Indy

In watching the Colts play on Monday it is official that they are not the same team that they used to be.  After being the dominant team in the league for 5 years they are on the down turn.   Usually Peyton finds a way to win games like the one played on Monday night.  He calls some of his assistants to help him conjure up some magic and lead his team to victory.   This time they started off with a view tricks that impressed the crowd, but then, yes my friends the magic died.   Peyton reached into his hat but came out with nothing, no help from his supporting cast no nothing.  He was on stage by himself the second act of the show and it showed, Peyton is still the same he can still read the defense and make the throws, but his assistants not so much.   The Colts need to go back to the drawing board and figure out what they need to do change the way they are playing, it starts with figuring out a way to bring back the magic.   I suggest a call to David Blaine.
