Super Bowl 51, aka Biggest Fail Ever

Saw the game, it was terrific. I wanted Atlanta to win, but thoroughly enjoyed New England’s comeback/Atlanta’s collapse. Having been there for numerous team collapses, I enjoy a good collapse when I have nothing invested in it.

I’ve seen one poster on one site describing why Atlanta lost that game. It’s actually quite easy. Atlanta didn’t want to win; they wanted to DESTROY the Patriots. That’s why they were taking a 7-step drop with the score 28-3. It’s why, when they only needed a field goal to make it an 11-point game with 3 minutes left, they were still trying to throw. That resulted in sacks, penalties and a nearly unmatchable loss. According to ESPN, it could be the Worst Loss in NFL History.

Offensive coordinators are aggressive and arrogant. Kyle Shanahan thought the way to win was through trusting Matt Ryan, who despite his MVP numbers had shown no sign of being trustworthy. Ultimately, he didn’t believe in his running game. And he certainly didn’t help his defense, which had been out on the field too long.

I’m not sure Kyle Shanahan would have been to return to Atlanta if he had not been hired by the niners. In fact, I’m not sure I’d want to hire Shanahan after this fiasco. This is worse than the Oilers disaster against the Bills. That was only a playoff game. Super Bowl 51 was a global spectacle in front of 110 million people. #Falconing is now a Twitter word. It means grabbing oneself around the throats and squeezing until unconscious. This loss is going to follow Shanahan around for life. If he wins a Super Bowl, so what? You blew your first one. He wins 3 Super Bowls? Ok, but he still coached the Worst Loss in NFL History. It will never go away.

Super Bowl 51

You want to know who’s going to win this game, don’t you?

I was thinking it’s going to be New England, because everything tells me they are the better team.

I’m getting the familiar “feel.” The feel says you have momentum on your side. I have no feel for this one.

BSP is going to go with the feel. Atlanta in an upset. We may be on the verge of the end of the Brady era. That of course means the Patriots will rout the Falcons, but the feel of this one says it won’t even be close.

Jerry Jones in the Pro Football Hall of Fame

That’s right. He made it. Not into the talking Hall of Fame but the professional football Hall of Fame. Likely due to the Dallas Morning News and relentless ass kissing on their part.

You may all laugh out loud. 

Who’s next, the 12th man making it?  A Jets fan? Seriously, what kind of kiss asses are on the Hall of Fame committee? You know the only reason the guy was even considered for it was because he’s a blabbermouth. It sure as hell isnt because of his team’s on the field success over say, the last 20 years.

An embarrassment to the sport. What a coincidence, NFL ratings start to slip and TV ratings are the ONLY reason this guy should get in the Hall of Fame without a ticket.

We may have to introduce another blog category. “Jerry Jonesing”, for extreme asskissing.

I’m looking forward to Skip Bayless’ nomination. Lol, lmao. LMFAO.

The Greatest Quarterback of All Time

We have been hearing how Tom Brady may be the greatest quarterback of all time. There are many factors that play into this. For example, Brady has a chance to win his 5th Super Bowl title, in seven appearances. He’s going strong after 16 years in the league. He’s been unstoppable except against Tom Coughlin’s Giants, and to a lesser degree, the Denver Broncos. Brady has won consistently across the years, with, other than Randy Moss and Rob Gronkowski, a collection of below par receivers.

BSP as always looks back into history. We believe the greatest QB of all time is “Automatic” Otto Graham. Graham won his league’s championship 7 out of 10 tries. He played in his league’s title game 10 consecutive years. He set some records that still stand today, like highest yards per average attempt. Pro football was a different sport back then. A quarterback was one out of 11 players on the field, not someone who got a special level of protection. There were no “Graham rules.”

On top of that, Graham also won a title playing professional basketball, one of only two players to win a title in two different professional sports. Too bad, Deion Sanders.

There are a few players who stood out back then, players before their time. Don Hutson, the receiver who caught more touchdown passes some seasons than entire NFL teams. Of course, Jim Brown before he became an elderly kook who hates on civil rights activists.

Tom Brady? The greatest quarterback of the Super Bowl era. Certainly the greatest one I’ve seen play, except he can be judged as something of a system QB. After all, Matt Cassel won in New England, and Jimmy Garapolo showed signs of success there. Here at BSP, we like Tom Brady, despite winning a title as a result of one of the top 10 most horrific calls of all time. In our tradition of happiness through bitterness, he’s kept the Broncos from winning multiple titles. We might even run out a Super Bowl prediction today.

This is awesome programming

Watching Steve Wilkos’ show from Thursday. Megan, the mother confessed to police that she tried to smother her 2-year old child. She then recanted her story and has gone on Steve Wilkos’ show to prove her innocence. As we know at BSP HQ, that’s a bad recipe. That’s a thing that lands guests in prison.

Megan spends her time on stage yelling at the child’s father, who has apparently left her. The dude just says “she did it.” Uh oh.

After Wilkos reads the polygraph results, which tell us Megan is guilty as hell of abusing her child, she goes screaming off the stage. She’s wailing while Steve tells the father Megan is a piece of crap. Megan is making too much noise back there, so Steve leaves the stage to throw Megan out of the studio. Steve tells her she’s a terrible mother and she’s going to jail. No she’s not. She’s going to prison.

There is a difference between jail and prison. Jail >>>> prison.  Jail is where you go after you get caught drunk driving. Someone inevitably goes to bail you out. Prison is where you go after you get convicted and sentenced for vehicular manslaugher.  The state decides when it’s time for you to leave.

Sometimes I’m amazed Wilkos can take the results of his show, even though he’s a cop. I get a laugh out of people thinking they can beat the polygraph; I’ve had multiple polygraphs and unless you’re a complete psychopath, it’s not happening. Steve Wilkos represents excellent programming because he has an unending stream of guests coming to his show. There’s an unending stream of people with screwed up lives who just want to put it on the air.

Wilbon Speaks Undeniable Truths

Ya’ll know I can’t stand Wilbon. In fact, his Chicago homerism inspired our “homerism” tag on this blog, along with use of the word “toadyism.” Today, I turned on PTI then the batteries died in the remote. So I’m trying to find how to change the channel, and here’s Wilbon jabbering away with Kornheiser.

I could find little fault, hard as I tried with Wilbon’s comments. Here are the following:

– It was a hold, Chiefs. That includes you Travis Kelce, stop making excuses

– Cowboys fan has to be devastated (not a bad thing in the eyes of this blog)

– Aaron Rodgers is the man; Tom Brady is the MVP but that’s a regular season award

– If you are Tomlin, you want to do something with Antonio Brown for being a locker room rat, but you can’t. Brown is your second best player.

– Shut up, Seahawks. You’re not good anymore

– Cavs – Warriors don’t play enough to be a rivalry

Wilbon is still a Chicago homer, but these assessments are spot on.
