Long walk of shame or it just happened to be that way

Another NFL weekend has almost come to a close, with only the Monday Night Football game still to be played. Nevertheless, there were some rather surprising results along the way and others , which seemed to be foregone conclusion even prior to their start. If there was said to be a major surprise in terms of the results witnessed, then the San Diego Chargers’ embarrassing and lopsided 37-0 loss to the Miami Dolphins(5-3) proved to be the most surprising of them all. Philip Rivers’ season to date has been one of the most impressive of the NFL starting quarterbacks, going into week nine.

Rivers and his teammates may well look back on the defeat and see it was a way to jar them out their complacency, yet at the same time, I cannot help but wonder if head coach Mike McCoy and his coaching staff had his team prepared for this contest . Whatever this result might suggest, the Chargers and their fans cannot be entirely happy with the performances on the day. With a bye week in week ten , McCoy and his staff will no doubt assess the team injuries as well as the psyche of his players before they head into week eleven where they will face divisional rivals the Oakland Raiders at Qualcomm Stadium, in San Diego, California. Tony Sparano and the Raiders are still seeking their first win of the season and their 0-8 record now seems a precursor of things s to come , bringing back memories of the Detroit Lions’ win-less season in 2008, where the team was simply abysmal all year long .

Oakland for its part , put up a spirited attempt to defeat the Seattle Seahawks this past Sunday in their game played at Century Link Field in Seattle , Washington. Sparano for the moment remains the interim head coach, but sooner or later,GM Reggie McKenzie and team owner Mark Davis will have to make the decision as to whether or not the head coach is the right man to lead this team for the remainder of the season. The longer this prolonged agony continues , the less likely the Raiders are going to see any semblance of success , much less be reinvigorated with some new-found confidence.

After their victory over the San Diego Chargers I have no doubt head coach Joe Philbinand his staff might feel this was the team’s best performance of the season so far. Though there are still eight games left to the regular season, the AFC East division remains something of a tightly contested race. The New England Patriots after their lambasting of Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, New England seem to be in the driver’s seat, leading the division with a 7-2 record, where their two-game lead over the Buffalo Bills(5-3) and Dolphins might well be enough for them to take the division with some ease. Given the way the Patriots dealt with Manning and the Broncos , the momentum for Tom Brady and his teammates has now swung their way.

With only the Oakland Raiders and New York Jets (1-8) having more consecutive losses over their last eight games, it is easy to understand why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-8) have struggled this season . Four consecutive defeats with the latest coming at the hands of the Cleveland Browns (5-3) has to be perplexing for the Buccaneers’ fans just as much as it has to for Lovie Smith and his coaching staff. Not one player on this Buccaneers’ roster can actually justify their salary , yet alone their contract , but somehow Smith suggests he has continued faith in his players , most notably , quarterback Mike Glennon. To try and put into words how abysmal Tampa has been can easily be summed up by sniffing the odor of a canine’s fecal matter or urine and then making a comparison with the Buccaneers’ performances this season. It’s safe to say, shit and urine definitely do stink , but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are now in a ” class of their own” , when it comes to stinking up the joint .

Lovie Smith and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play host to the equally forlorn Atlanta Falcons (2-6) in a divisional race, where mediocritywithin the NFC South seems to be the norm for this season . All four teams are no better than a .500 record with the New Orleans Saints leading the way with a 4-4 mark. For Saints’ head coach Sean Payton , he knows his team has been uncharacteristic in terms of their overall play . New Orleans’ 28-10 victory over the equally lamentable Carolina Panthers and you get to understand why the NFC South has become an instantaneous joke this season.

To carry on with the comical side of the NFL this season , at what point will the New York Jets’ front office figure out that Rex Ryan , Geno Smith and Michael Vick have a great deal in common ? GM John Idzik and Ryan have formulated a recipe for disaster this season and I doubt that Julia Childs in her kitchen at the peak of her culinary guile could or would have served up such a meal for a dinner guest , let alone what the Jets have served up for their fans this season ! If Geno Smith is said to be a work in progress , then the Jets’ front office should be negotiating with the quarterback’s agents at RocNation Sports for a return of at least 90% of their money back in terms of the player’s contract.

Drafted in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft , Smith is in the process of making Mark Sanchez’s final season with the Jets seem like a masterpiece painted by none other than Pablo Picasso . In reality though, even Picasso at his very worst, with his artistic ingenuity never made his admirers simply want to throw rocks at his work. Sanchez now commonly known for the “butt-fumble fiasco and legacy can take delight, that his successor has become a complete laughing stock around the NFL, with the print and television media and in the tri-state area now continually criticizing Geno Smith for his poor play. Decision making asides , there is now no upside to Smith as a player , let alone the fans seeing Michael Vick on the field as his immediate backup as a starting quarterback. As if to emphasize this point further , I need only point to the Jets’ 24-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs .

The clock is now ticking on Rex Ryan’s tenure with the New York Jets and as their season meanders on, there seems to be no signs the coach and his staff can actually point to any signs of progress, let alone their being confidence among the members of the roster. Dire consequences await should the New York Jets fall to the Pittsburgh Steelers in week ten, when they play host to one of the AFC North’s leading divisional contenders.

A 13-10 loss by the San Francisco 49ers to the St Louis Rams might not yet have created a scene of panic, but given the fact the Rams have not been truly competitive all season long, suggests to me , the Forty Niners were complacent and are extremely overrated this season. The team have begun to rest on their laurels , and Colin Kaepernick seems to be more concerned over his tattooed adorned arms , than he is with the team’s cumbersome play and their nondescript record in the NFC West. Needless to say, the idiocy of the Niners still being capable of winning ten games, seems further adrift than ever before. Should the Forty Niners fail in their quest for the divisional title and a postseason berth , the accusing fingers will certainly be pointed at not only the players , but certainly at head coach Jim Harbaugh .

We’re number one . Oops ! Sorry , we were number one and now the repercussions of the College Football season are now being felt , as the top contenders start to make their push to be part of the final-four playoff format which will be used to determine the next national champion at the FBS Level (D1).

We’re number one . Oops ! Sorry , we were number one and now the repercussions of the College Football season are now being felt , as the top contenders start to make their push to be part of the final-four playoff format which will be used to determine the next national champion at the FBS Level (D1). While Misssissippi State (Bulldogs) 8-0 still hangs unto the top spot , the belief appears to be they will not be around for the final round and seen as the last man standing. The Bulldogs took care of Arkansas in a competitive match-up that could have gone the Razorbacks’ way, , had they taken advantage of the opportunities offered at the time.

For Mississippi State , if they can simply win out then , they will be part of the inaugural playoff format. Granted, with the rapid rise up the rankings of Oregon , Auburn , TCU (Horned Frogs) and Nick Saban’s rampant Alabama (Crimson Tide) laying swath to their opponents , there is a suggestion the SEC’s presence in the final standings will be overwhelming. One program not part of the discussion is the rapidly falling esteem of the Florida Gators , where Wil Muschamp’s tenure appears to be at end with AD Jeremy Foley intent on prolonging the agony of every Gators’ fan nationwide . Alumni of the program are at the point, where they are calls for an effigy to be hung from the rafters of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Florida , and home to some of Florida’s greatest triumphs.

To understand the Gators’ plight this season , has been very much a chance to witness what it is like to self implode , while those around you remain calm. Two consecutive losses , before a beat-down of the Georgia Bulldogs and still the victory has not been enough to quell the calls for Wil Muschamp’s dismissal .

Florida’s next scheduled game will pit them against conference rivals Vanderbilt in a contest which could a long way in either resurrecting some respectability to their season or simply prolong the agony.

Kevin Durant , ” out” , Julius Randle and Steve Nash , both on the Los Angeles Lakers’ roster out, have their fans witnessing an impromptu and below par start to the NBA season. The Oklahoma City Thunder will be without their League MVP for two months of their starting schedule , but Scott Brooks as optimistic as ever is hoping the player can make an earlier return to the team’s starting lineup . The fact Sebastian Telfair now finds himself on the Thunder’s roster after a less than solid career in the NBA , has me wondering what GM Sam Presti hopes to get out of the veteran guard .

Still early stages in the season . but already , you have to wonder what to make of the Los Angeles Lakers and their poor start to their schedule . Win-less , with Byron Scott now unsure as to what his best starting lineup ought to be . An 0-4 start for the Los Angeles Lakers and the excuses have begun from the lame Lakers’ fans, who are unwilling to admit the roster has no real depth or talent beyond Kobe Bryant. If anyone thinks an aging Carlos Boozer can add to or make this roster more productive, /then clearly , they, Mitch Kupchak , Jim Buss and their forlorn fans are sadly mistaken. . Defensively, the Lakers are an unmitigated disaster and a complete mess, with their being no real sign the coaching staff or the players know when and where their first win of the season is likely to happen . Giving up on 115 points per game and you can easily understand why the Lakers are simply limping and whimpering their way to perhaps another miserable season.

Kobe Bryant will lead his teammates in their next game on Tuesday night when they face the Phoenix Suns at the Staples Center in Los Angeles , California. If the contests between these two teams are anything to go by , then we are likely to see either A a high scoring contest , with their being no emphasis on defense or just a game , error prone in just about every facet imaginable. I am not so sure the Los Angeles Lakers are capable of winning their division (Pacific Division) much less able to garner a playoff berth . A year ago today , I doubt the Los Angeles Lakers would have envisaged a season where they would fall from grace even with the franchise having suffered injuries to several players on the roster throughout much of last season.

DeMarcus Cousins remains the troubled player at the professional level, just as much as he was a wayward, but mercurial and talented player at the collegiate level , with the Kentucky Wildcats where he played for one year with the program . Drafted by the Sacramento Kings, Cousins is now seen as the face of the franchiseand its immediate and long-term future. Now with the Kings seeking to make this season a competitive year for the coaching staff of Michael Malone. If the Kings are to succeed and at this stage of the season, where they appear to be the surprise team within the NBA , playing with a great deal of tenacity. Cousins and teammate Rudy Gay will have to be at the forefront of anything being sought by way of success for the Sacramento Kings.

Currently , with a 2-1 mark seated second in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference. A surprising 98-92 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers might not have made everyone sit up and take note, until you realize the Clippers were one of the more consistent performers last season having made the NBA Playoffs . The Sacramento Kings were on the outside looking in, as Chris Paul , Blake Griffin and the rest of the Clippers fell short of their goal of winning an NBA title.

A Monday night contest between the Sacramento Kings and Denver Nuggets earned the visiting team a five-point 110-105 victory at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.

The news in the sports’ world isn’t always refreshing, where the main agenda tends to be more about the unsavory sides to sports’ journalism even when the body of the story isn’t sports’ related. Baseball brought us a stirring World Series finale with the success of the San Francisco Giants . In the NFL the schedule has just moved beyond on its halfway point , with several teams now out of the divisional and conference races. No denying, the walk of shame will be an embarrassing one , no matter how it’s spun. The NBA is now seeking to take the gloss off its NFL counterpart and the press following now being garnered as the season is still in its infancy. No doubt the Lakers’ storyline will be one that is closely followed. Flawed or not , not everyone will be satisfied with formula being initiated. Your thoughts on the manner in which teams or athletes have been performing and where you see them at the end of their respective seasons? College Football in its inaugural year, where the new playoff format comes into being .

  1. Nine weeks into the NFL season and play within the league has become blurred , with few teams actually playing with any level of consistency . one

    Now that the NCAA is set to have their inaugural playoff format up and running, to determine a national champion at the FBS Level . It will be interesting to how the panelists go about adjudicating which programs they deem worthy , by way of the rankings and whether or not the body of work is taken into account , or just simply a along the lines of the most immediate results .

    So now that the Los Angeles Lakers are sinking beneath their own excreta . I would like to know at what point Mitch Kupchak and Byron Scott will figure out this team is simply not good enough to win an NBA title .

  2. Last night proved once again that a number of teams are simply doing it all with smoking mirrors . The Indianapolis Colts have been playing with a great deal of inconsistency , with errors to their game , which was were magnified last night ., in their loss to the New York Giants.

    Andrew Luck and Eli Manning put on a rather average show in terms of the passing element to their collective game .


    Now we know why Jennifer Aniston made “We’re The Millers “ so damn funny and good .

  3. The NCAA Football Season had began in earnest with programs looking to make major gains as they sought to rise up the rankings . We have seen the Florida Gators flounder as their season has fallen apart and their being no signs of winning the SEC Championship , much less their division .

    Week eleven
    will see Florida pit their wits against Vanderbilt (Commodores) . It may well be one of the few remaining chances for Florida to actually achieve something meaningful concerning their season .

    Wil Muschamp is unlikely to return for the 2015 season , as AD Jeremy Foley will seek to make changes among the coaching staff , with Muschamp’s name being atop of the list of those who are likely to to be fired .

  4. Don’t look now but the Golden State Warriors (4-0) remain unbeaten . I wonder if this has anything to do with the contract offered to Klay Thomposon which might have lit a fire under this team ?

    Joe Lacob and Peter Guber

    Klay Thompson among the highest paid player on the Warriors’ playing staff .

    Co-owners , Joe Lacob and Peter Guber have the money to spend are quite willing to make the franchise the most popular NBA team in the state of California . They may well have a lot of catching up to to do in terms of overall attendance .

    So much for Steve Ballmer’s claim that he would make the Los Angeles Clippers the best team within the state and the NBA’s most watchable franchise . In the aftermath of the Donald Sterling fiasco , Ballmer as the owner of the Clippers should let the team do their talking on the court and not start to make comments that will prove hard to back up.

    $hit , have the Los Angeles Lakers actually won a game yet ? Not only is this team bad but they cannot get out of the way of their own and their fans’ continued stupidity

    The Lakers allowed Phil Jackson to drive Jerry West ” out of town ” and West was the primary architect of the franchise’s most recent successes for which Jackson was being afforded far too much credit. Idiots seem to forget , it was West who made the acquisition which brought Kobe Bryant over from the Charlotte Hornets after the veteran guard had been drafted by the franchise .

    Jerry West a special consultant and executive with the Warriors is quietly assisting the franchise gain more recognition both on and off the field of play. Look at where the Los Angles Lakers are at now .

    “Jerry , is there any truth to the rumor a comment allegedly attributed to to you ___ you stated …. ‘the Los Angeles Lakers front office can go fist each other in the @ss and then f#ck themselves also ‘. West”s smile says it all . If only there were some common sense to be found with Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak at present .

    What else needs to be said ? West and Kobe Bryant .

  5. If ever there was a time to now doubt the veracity of the Los Angeles Lakers’ attempt and quest to be competitive this season . Things were set for the team to make a run within their division (Pacific) after their their off-season moves and the NBA Draft. The 2014 season was set in motion with Bryon Scott and his new team built around skill-set of their All Star guard Kobe Bryant , veteran Carlos Boozer, point guard Steve Nash , Nick Young and rookie Julius Randle .

    Off to an 0-5 start there now seems to be questions when and where the Lakers will gain their first victory of the season with the team playing less than impressive basketball. .

    In their last game the Los Angeles Lakers were harangued and completely outplayed by the Phoenix Suns in a six point loss 112-106 to their conference rivals .

    Elsewhere, the Philadelphia Sixers in a similar vain seem to be intent on following up on last season’s .

    Head coach Brett Brown and his Sixers’ coaching staff are not only bereft of coaching acumen but the team itself is lacking talent and outright leadership .

    As to the front office of the Sixers I firmly believe Josh Harris has no intent on seeing his franchise actually attempt to become successful, much less compete . With actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith also being co-owners of the Sixers , it should tell you all you need to know , bearing in mind, Smith hasn’t had a major blockbuster hit in a number of years .

  6. With nothing better to actually write about NBA analysts are showing their utter stupidity in trying to suggest the Houston Rockets’ victory over the San Antonio Spurs was somehow entrenched with reality and the fact it represents the Rockets being somehow far better than the Spurs simply, based on this one game . These idiots couldn’t identify human fecal matter from that of a bovine or canine . That is in fact how dumb they actually are .

    Spurs’ coach Gregg Popovich chose to sit Manu Ginobli and Tim Duncan , going with a new lineup for the game . Later in the season when the two teams are likely to meet again in the regular season the outcome will be different as the pair will be part of the lineup in that contest.

  7. I’m sorry , but where was it ever preordained or written that the Cleveland Cavaliers were bound to leap out and take everyone by surprise in the NBA with the best record or being the best team in the league this season ?

    LeBron James may well be a four-time League MVP but he’s certainly not playing like one nor is he currently the best player in the NBA at this point of the season based on form .

    The Cavaliers are a very good team , but they are far from being the best team in their division , conference or the NBA .

  8. It seemed to me, Al, that last year’s Seahawks created a perfect storm.

    I remember reading an article describing the new mindset within the organization, that Pete Carroll had created an entirely new culture.

    I’m not sure what happened from last season to this but let’s just say, things appear to be a little bit different in the Pacific Northwest.


    1. Hard to believe that the New York Jets’ GM John Idzik was one of the primary architects of the Seattle Seahawks’ who won the Superbowl last season . Now look at the makeup of the Jets’ roster and look at the current indecisiveness of Seattle and their fallout this season within the NFC West.

      It now looks as if the Arizona Cardinals will run away with the NFC West and there doesn’t seem to be a damn thing either Seattle Seahawks or San Francisco 49ers will be able to do about it .

  9. Is it me , but are we going into be for another Sunday of really bad contests in week ten as seen in the early games ?

    Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse the Pittsburgh Steelers stink up the joint , losing to the New York Jets in a road loss at MetLife Stadium , East Rutherford , New Jersey,.

    Can someone remind me again why Jay Cutler is being paid the money or should I say why the Chicago Bears sought fit to offer him his current contract ? Guaranteed or not $127 million is far too much to pay a quarterback whose postseason statistics are fu#king mediocre . GM Phil Emery must be on crack , because his frigging @ss couldn’t spot or sell the word talent if he were given a written transcript .

    After three quarters the Bears are getting their @ss handed to them by the Green Packers in an all NFC North divisional contest . Aaron Rodgers is having a feel day beating up on the Bears .

    Let’s be real and put this baby to bed , there is not a cat in hell’s chance of the Oakland Raiders winning a game this season and their loss to the Denver Broncos today indicates to me this Raiders’ team cannot win and are not good enough to win a game . ! Never mind the fact owner Mark Davis is allegedly looking to now relocate the franchise to San Antonio , Texas . Not that a move would be of benefit to the Raiders as the team would stink up the fuc#ing joint no matter where they were actually playing .

  10. History was made last night in the NBA as the combo of Tim Duncan , Manu Ginobli and Tony Parker won their 500th game together as a trio with the San Antonio Spurs . The Spurs’ defeated the Los Angeles Clippers on the road in a game played at the Staples Center in Los Angeles , California ,.

    Unfortunately, as the San Antonio Spurs are not considered to be a big-market team and this feat by their illustrious trio is unlikely to garner a great deal of coverage by the print or television media . The same could be said also of the NBA Network whose @ss kissing homage and reverence paid to the Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks has become mind numbingly bland !

    From left to right Tim Duncan , Manu Ginobli and Tony Parker .

    A trio good enough to be placed alongside Worthy , Kareem and Magic ? Or even Bird , McHale and Parrish ?

  11. The ongoing torture persists as Wil Muschamp’s tenure with the Florida Gators winds down .

    Muschamp is in need of a win for his team , if only to try and convince AD Jeremy Foley to give him one last chance to prove himself along with his coaching staff .

    The SEC standings are a poor reflection of the Gators’ season and their failure all-round .

    NCAA rankings are now heating up with a dangerous Alabama (8-1) team lurking in the midst of it all .

  12. The decision was made with Florida will not have Wil Muschamp return next season as the head coach of the Gators’football program. Sadly, AD Jeremy Foley has no real idea, who he would like to see succeed the beleaguered head coach, whose season has been dire for the team , with their standing in the SEC being abysmal , has seen their statistics throughout the season head south .

    Florida has fallen apart with not one player playing with any sense of urgency, guile or leadership for that matter . Personally. I believe Foley erred on the side of caution, having Muschamp succeed Urban Meyer . Charlie Strong was a worthy candidate, but because of the racist attitudes of Gators’ boosters and idiocy within the athletics department it should come as no surprise a Caucasian male would be handed the “keys to the kingdom “, which has now fallen into the depths of mediocrity. The Gators and their fans were not yet ready to have an African-American male become the coach of the football program.

    There has been a great deal of speculation Foley would seek out Dan Mullen and Bob Stoops as likely candidates among his list of interviewees.
