eh.  I don't care.  Bulletin board material is overrated.

And really, is this going to get Randy Moss all fired up?  The chronic and fired up are usually mutually exclusive.

I'm looking for a big play early.

And by that, I mean Mrs. Wes Welker stabbing her hubby in the thigh Saturday night.

Maybe we should all chip in and send him a laced doobie.  Then he shows up in one of those rainbow afros and pigs out on the pregame buffet.  It could work.

Man, wish I could come up with that.   I mean the quote.  Really.   Not the gay thing.  Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Did Smith make a guarantee on a game or did he shoot and kill someone?? The way Jim Nantz went on about it you would think he did. Stinging comments all game long.

I will say the Steelers looked alot like the Ravens with their trash talking bullshit, but IMO,  that comment had nothing to do with the outcome. Anthony Smith biting on play action and being out of position on a few big plays went alot further towards the beating we took. That along with not being able to score a touchdown on two possessions within the 20. Oh and that Brady is un -fucking -believable. Sweet lord I hate him.

So true.

Smith was a victim of the terrible, uninformed, and unethical sports "journalism" we live with these days.

You can tell reporters are lazy and stupid by the questions they ask at all the ridiculous press conferences the NFL forces coaches to hold these days. Compare sports writers to reporters who cover anything else and you'll see that other reporters actually know something about the subjects they cover, and can ask intelligent questions, whereas 99% of sports reporters appear to know less about football than the typical fan.

Hence there are so few -- if any at all -- questions asked of a technical sort. Instead, questions are all about "stories" and "narratives" of the "how did you feel when.." variety.

Bullshit.

So anyway, my point is, that the week leading up to a game like this, professional athletes (who didn't get where they are by learning the nuances of P.R. communications) have to answer a zillion stupid questions.

I'm sure -- I am completely sure -- that some reporter asked Smith if he thought the Steelers could win and it was the 300th time he was asked this. And that's where it started. In fact, if you read the whole quote in context, Smith says something totall bland and boring like "if our offense, defense, and special teams play well I guarantee a win" or something.

Well, duh.

And yes, I'm rooting for ill things to happen to Brady in a game. Call me petty but I'd like to see THEM experience some of the injury problems at QB we've had and see how good they look.
