Working here at TMRzoo is my fist real job since almost graduating from Yazoo County High School…Go Panthers! I did work at Yazoo City Federal Correctional Facility for a spell but they told me upfront that job would only be for 3 – 6 months. So now I am here in the big time writing about football for TMR Entertainment. My Mom told me 2 things when I took this job she said “Cletus mind your manners and make sure you learn something new every day”.
I have been very friendly with all of my co-workers, though the monkey TMR keeps in the office is getting on my nerves. There is nothing more irritating than a monkey high on cheap beer. I have also been writing down what I have leant each week and I figured I would share it with you folks on Saturdays.
The first think I learnt is Michael Vick is the luckiest son of a bitch on the planet. This guy gets more second chances than a slow kid at a carnival ring toss. He gets thrown in jail, gets out and lands a multimillion dollar job. His bosses tell him Mike this is your last chance keep it clean and he has a shooting at his birthday party. They still don’t fire him and now it looks like he will be taking the reins of a major market football team. Micheal Vick’s first outing as the starting Quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles will be against the Quarterbackless Detroit Lions. Crime does pay!
Speaking of the Detroit Lions is the Matt Stafford experiment over in Detroit yet? Detroit should change their team anthem to “Hurt” by Johnny Cash. Something tells me Matt Stafford is going to make Jamarcus Russell look like a great pick. Jamarcus ate himself out of the league but at lead he was able to get his fat ass on the field.
Speaking of busts what the hell is going on in New York. The only Jet player under 40 years old seems to be horrible. Mark Sanchez only completed 47.6 percent of his passes for 74 yards. He didn’t throw any picks because Fatboy Rex Ryan was smart enough to keep the ball out of his hands against that Baltimore Ravens defense. Sanchez is facing The Patriots who gave up 341 yards to The Beagles last week. If Sanchez doesn’t crack the 200 yard mark The Jets defense will need to spend a lot of time on the field if the still plan on going to the Superbowl. Sanchez is starting to look very Leaf-like.
Seneca Wallace is starting on Sunday for the Cleveland Browns. Is the talent pool for Quarterbacks really that thin in the NFL?
Even though The Cowboys lost last week Dez Bryant is a beast. He was brushing off defenders like they were lint on his sleaves. Dez has great hands and he is very physical. If he had jumped over the desk when Jeff Ireland asked if his mother was a prostitute it would have been gruesome. All we would find was a moist spot where Jeff once stood.
Tom Brady ripped his loyal Pats fans. He was quoted in The Boston Herald as saying “The road environment is very different than our friendly home crowd, who when I looked up, half the stadium was gone when we were up 21 points early fourth quarter, which I wasn’t so happy about,” Brady said. “I don’t think the Jets fans leave early. They’re going to be loud the whole game. Communication is always an issue.” What an ass wipe – The Jets have better fans? I don’t think Tom has ever been in that 3 hour traffic jam trying to leave Foxboro Stadium. Tom do you want to make Jets/Patriots comparisons? Mark Sanchez doesn’t skip minicamp.
So that is what I learnt this week I guess this is a work in progress for me. I know some of you may think I am an idiot for some of my comments but if you think you have more football knowledge than me let’s see what you got.
If you click on the picture of the two bettys holding the Lomabardi Trophy on the right it will bring you to my Week Two football picks page. If you pick better than me you just might win a prize or two.
So bring it on
