NFL Playoffs: Kickers Rule

So far in the NFL Playoffs the kickers have been displaying pivotal domination.  They’re usually forgotten and disrespected. But, this year, they’ve been the ones left in the lonely high pressure spotlight.  If you look at their stats and how many points they score, you’d think they must be 6’9” and weigh 255 lbs and run like a sprinter.  In reality they might be 5’11” and weigh around 180.  Kickers never catch or even fall on a football. They only touch a football to put in on a tee. A kicker gets to wear a uniform...

NFL Wild Card Weekend

NFL

This NFL Wild Card weekend was great if you’re a football fan. I mean the NFL, and not the international game where they don’t wear pads and where the players don’t automatically collapse in a heap when someone exhales on them. Even in these days of COVID, it takes a few days before exhaling on someone results in them collapsing.  There were five games this weekend and that was enough. There is one tonight on Monday, and that is the game I’m looking forward to the most because the team that I root for, the Los...

Last Sunday against the Ravens, Stafford threw a deep pass to Odell Beckham...

NFL Cardinals

For the first time since 1947, the NFL Cardinals franchise has an actual chance to win the league championship. To say it has been a long time is an understatement. Jackie Robinson was a rookie for the Brooklyn Dodgers the last time the Cardinals won a title. It was so long ago, the team was in Chicago. They were the Chicago Cardinals! That comes as a shock to most Chicago Bears. Joe Louis was heavyweight champion of the world. A horse named Jet Pilot won the Kentucky Derby. That sounds like a fast horse. Israel wasn’t...

Tom Brady Wins Again

He’s as predictable as the tides. Tom Brady is like the sun coming up in the east. He is the football equivalent of death and taxes. Father Time has nothing on him. Brady is like Wyatt Earp in a gunfight. He always wins. Sometimes Tom Brady momentarily falters. Like a car that needs a tune-up. You’ll be sitting at a traffic light and it idles rough. It’s not enough to trade the car in, but it makes you realize some adjustments need to be made.  After routine maintenance is done, it’s back to high performance and...
