Super Bowl Prediction

Today is the day! Super Bowl 51. Falcons Patriots, battle of the best, MVP vs Goat, Brady vs Ryan, this should be one hell of a super bowl.

If you’ve read my previous Super Bowl article I outlined all of the players and stats for each team. This is a prediction article. It won’t be a trillion words and right to the point.

Last night Matt Ryan won the MVP which is what I expected after he beat Aaron Rodgers in the NFC Championship. History though is against Matt Ryan. In the 2000’s the last 9 MVPs in the Super Bowl have lost. Plus he’s playing against Tom Brady the goat. Simply put is that Tom Brady has the better overall team.

Patriots 28 Falcons 21.

Warriors Release Varejao: Not Suprised.

I’ve been covering the Warriors extensively on my blog, and to be honest I’m not suprised.

The Warriors are undoubtedly the best team in the NBA. They are currently 43-7 and 9-1 in the last 10 games and have been blowing out teams. And if you’ve been watching them play you know that Varejao doesn’t play a lot. With the pickup of Zaza and McGee, Varejao has found himself being the 3rd big in the rotation. And more times than not they play Durant as that 4 and avoid having two centers on the court. Also the Warriors play the death lineup a lot, where Green is the 5 and Durant at the 4. Once again Vajerao would not see the court. Plus Vajerao is old and his time in the league is coming to an end.

Joe McKnight Shooter Charged.

Finally justice is served, Joe McKnight former USC running back and NFL running shooter Ronald Gasser was charged today with 2nd degree murder.  On December 1st Ronald Gasser shot and killed McKnight during a road rage incident.  When I heard about McKnight being killed I was heartbroken like the rest of you.  McKnight who was amazing at USC ran for over 2,000 career yards and 66 touchdowns, becoming one of USCs best running backs ever.  McKnights NFL career wasn’t as good, only playing four years which is typical for running backs today, but thats not the point.  The point is that Justice was served,  I’m glad to see that Gasser wasn’t let of the hook, originally he was let off without any charges.  There are many things that was going through my head when that happened.  Gasser was a white male and to some people McKnight a gangbanger, thug, criminal.  I don’t believe this was hate crime or anything like that, but it was a delusion man who let his emotions get in the way and shoot and kill such a great person in McKnight.  Because in the end it isn’t about what you do on the field but what you do off the field.

If Ronald Gasser is convicted, which he will be, will possibly face life in prison and no parole sources tell me.  That is fine with me and I’m sure with you as well.  Ronald Gasser is to dangerous to be kept on the streets.  Joe McKnight was a respected man in the community and from fellow NFL players and coaches.  RIP McKnight, gone but not forgotten.

NBA Daily Take

Yesterday was full of exciting games and blowouts.  There was a total of 12 games yesterday, which is pretty typical of a Wednesday in the NBA.  The Wednesday slate is always full of games and primetime games usually have the leagues best competing against each other.  Before I dive in on the games from yesterday, I plan on doing a NBA Daily Take article everyday there are NBA games.  The NBA personally for me is my favorite professional sport to cover.  There always is some type of controversy happening or two of the leagues best competing.  Also it is very unpredictable for what can happen. On any given night any player can go off and score 40 plus points or have a emphatic dunk or pass that makes the arena explode.  We also get to see the worlds best athletes go against each other, Lebron, Durant, Westbrook just to name a few and unlike the NFL there are 82 games and a more fun and competitive all star game.  There also aren’t any crazy rules that make the game watered down like the NFL.  Finally you as a fan have more of an opportunity to catch your cities team or your favorite team.

If you follow the NBA closely or just see the commercials scroll by on television then you should know that the east coast and teams in the midwest tip off first usually at 7pm. There are those cases on the weekend where games tip off before then.  Last night the first two games of the night were the Pacers vs Magic and Cavaliers vs Wolves.  We’ll start with the king and who again had a very solid performance finishing with 27, 8, and 12.  People said that after Lebron left Miami that he would slow down and never win in Cleveland. Well that talk has all been silenced as he is still a 26, 8, 5 player every night he touches the court.  Wiggins finished the night with 23 points and has played solid this whole season.  This game for me was disappointing because I felt like it should have been more competitive and ended up in a Cavs blowout, 125- 97.  I also believe that the Wolves are better than their record which is 19-30.  The Wolves are still a young team, but have young stars in Wiggins and Towns.  This team was slated for a possible playoff run and if they don’t rally off some wins in the month of February then they will be watching the playoffs from home.  Cleveland on the other hand will make the playoffs and most likely roll through the playoffs, because the Eastern Conference is garbage.  Let this go on record, if Cleveland played in the Western Conference they wouldn’t make it to the finals every year and probably wouldn’t be a 1st seed.

The Pacers unlike the Wolves who started off slow has found their groove and are currently the 6th seed in the east.  Paul George didn’t have a great game, only finishing with 8 points in 33 minutes, but 4 Pacer players provided double digit scoring to lift the burden off George.  The Pacers are one of the only teams who could give Cleveland trouble in the playoffs, only because they play hard every night and PG13 can go off at any time during a game.  For the Pacers opponent last night the Magic, there isn’t much I have to say about them, only besides since they lost Victor Oladipo they haven’t been good at all and they won’t be for awhile.

One of the most exciting games was Toronto vs Boston.  My big performance of the night (which is something Ill do where I pick 1 or 2 players and highlight what they did) goes to Isaiah Thomas who put Boston on his back by scoring 44 points and 19 of them in the 4th quarter.  Isaiah Thomas has to be one of the most exciting players to watch and is defiantly a top 5 point guard in the NBA.  As for Toronto the absence of DeMar DeRozan didn’t help them in this game and even though Kyle Lowry had 32 points, he didn’t have much support from anyone else around him.  The game was close but without DeRozan it was easy for Boston to worry about Lowry and not have to worry about guarding two NBA superstars.  This one for me was defiantly the most exciting game of the night.  Who doesn’t love two powerhouse teams in the east duke it out.

One of the hottest teams in the NBA right now is the Miami heat. The Heat have won 9 straight and in those 9 wins they beat the best team in NBA, the Golden State Warriors. The Heat didn’t start that well this season and it started before when they lost Miamis golden child in Dwayne Wade to the Bulls.  The heat still do have Hassan Whiteside and even though he’s pretty dang good, he still has a temper issue and needs to play more consistent.  Whiteside has the potential to be the best big man in the league if he can fix those issues he has.  But back to the Heat them selves they just beat on of the best teams in the regular season, the Atlanta Hawks.  I say regular season because we all know that they are bad in the playoffs.  The big shock for me was how good of a fit Dwight Howard seems to be with the Hawks.  Dwight has been an issue with other superstars, Kobe and Harden didn’t like him at all and sometimes calling him saying “he’s soft” or “doesn’t play serious enough”, but now that Dwight doesn’t have that pressure around him, he can just be him self and play his game.  Miami on the other hand did get some big help from Dragic and Waiters as they pulled in 27 and 20 a piece last night.  Dion Waiters also quoted Kobe about how he would rather go 0-30 than 0-9, because that shows that you lost confidence.  That has helped Waiters this season as he is putting up career numbers.

For my final game and most of you saw this coming, its the Golden State Warriors.  If you have read my other articles then you would know that I might be a little bias towards the Warriors, but if Colin Cowherd can be towards Cleveland than I can the Warriors.  Golden State once again dominated yet another NBA team in the Hornets.  My other big performance of the night goes to none other than Stephen Curry.  He once again amazed me by hitting 11 three pointers and scoring 39 points last night.  I remember when the season was just starting and everyone talked about chemistry and how they wouldn’t be good at all.  Well if you haven’t learned yet, they are 43-7 and the best team once again in the NBA.  I don’t see how any team can beat them in a seven game series.  This might be the best Golden State team the league has seen, and possibly ever.  Klay Thompson also hit 6 threes, the splash brothers combined for 17 threes together last night and shredded a Hornets team that fell off since their red hot start.  But that just goes to show that the East is terrible and no where nearly as good as the West.  We also saw something hilarious and that was JaVale McGee getting stuffed by the rim.  He is known for messing around on the court, but to be truthful, he has played a lot better and has been a big help off the bench and has started a couple games for the Warriors.  The Warriors also have young talent coming off the bench in Looney and Ian Clark also with veteran help in Iggy.  The Zaza injury really won’t hurt the Warriors to much just because he is a rebounder and shot blocker.  Zaza does run the floor well and gives the Warriors a good 8-10 points a game.  I really don’t see how this year Cleveland can beat Golden State. Dubnation is just to good.

Thats a wrap on the Daily NBA Take.  To recap it, we saw the King dominate and Kyrie dish out 14 assists in 3 quarters.  Isaiah Thomas drop 44 and 19 in the 4th, and a whole effort by the Pacers team.  The Miami Heat have kept their 9 game win streak alive by beating a Atlanta team that is average, but that still can’t take away the credit from the Heat.  Then of course we saw the best team in the NBA the Warriors.  Steph Curry was red hot and I mean red hot, 11 threes.  Klay Thompson also contributed 6 threes and they combined for 17 threes.  The NBA last night was exciting and full of stars playing at their peak.  This should be once hell of a finish right into playoff basketball.

National Signing Day Recap.

National Signing day is a big day for college football programs and of course the high school athletes them selfs.  These high school players put in years of hard work to become marketable for college football programs around the country.  This is truly one day that can change a program for years to come.  Think about when Clowney inked with South Carolina, that program changed and brought them into the spotlight, or when Vince Young signed with Texas.  All of the recruits that signed today are one step closer to their dream, and thats making it big time into the NFL.

This article is going to cover the power five conferences, ACC, SEC, Big Ten, Pac 12, and Big 12.  I would cover all the conferences, but I hate to say it, none of the others matter because we won’t see them in the college football playoffs.  Even though there will be some very talented players and good teams in those non power five conferences.  Take Western Michigan, a very deep and talented team with arguably the top wide receiver in the country and this upcoming draft.  But we also saw them play against a very good and power five conference team in Wisconsin and run them into the ground.

Caleb RoweTo start I will have to cover the best conference in football hands down and its the Big Ten.  The Big ten has been able to compete every year and have the best two teams in the country regularly in Ohio State and Michigan.  Ohio State signed one of the best players in high school football in Tate Martell.  Ohio State and Michigan finished in the top ten this year but that is expected when you have the national championships, top NFL draft picks, and Heisman  winners.  My winner for the Big Ten would have to be Maryland.  They finished 18th this year and signed 9 four star recruits.  Maryland isn’t a dominate team in the Big Ten and probably won’t be ever, but with this kind of talent coming in they will be able to make a run and possibly get into a bowl game.  Now my loser will have to be Wisconsin, and I chose them because as good as they were last year and being ranked in the top 5 at one point in the season, they didn’t reload and only signed 2 four stars.  Also one of the top defensive lineman in the state of Wisconsin inked with Indiana today, Juan Harris, a 6’3 365 nose guard.  If Wisconsin wants to compete in the Big Ten down the road they will need to recruit better and not rely on the Watt family.

ole-missNow for the most talked about conference and I think overrated is the SEC.  Now once again Alabama has the number one recruiting class in the country this year, signing future NFL draft pick Najee Harris, who will continue that Alabama pedigree of dominant running backs.  The SEC as a whole didn’t do to bad in recruiting as 8 teams finished in the top 25 for this recruiting class.  Now for my winners and losers.  I’ll start with the loser who is Ole Miss.  The rebels did not recruit well, even though they finished 33rd in the country, they finished 12th in the SEC and last in the SEC West.  The possible sanctions in Oxford didn’t help the case for the Rebels, plus there instate rival finished above them.  Now my winner is LSU, they finished in the top ten in this years class.  This is a great first step for the Ed Orgeron Era in Baton Rouge.  The tigers also signed one of the best defensive ends in the country in K’Lavon Chassion.  The only major problem for LSU is that Alabama is in their conference, but with this talent LSU should be able to pull of an upset against the tide.

NCAA Football: CFP National Championship-Clemson vs AlabamaThe ACC is up next and they have the of course the defending national champion Clemson Tigers who upset Bama.  I personally didn’t think it was an upset because of Clemsons fire power on offense and Alabama lack of, defense can win you a championship but it helps if you a explosive offense.  The ACC this year won the most bowls game and one the college football playoff, so recruits should flock to these schools.  My winner for the ACC is Florida State.  They finished with the best recruiting class in the ACC, which is good considering they were kind of a disappointment last season. Will Florida State be able to replace Dalvin Cook with any of their current and incoming running backs, that remains to be seen.  My loser is actually going to Clemson.  Clemson is my loser because even though they finished 16th in the country, they only signed 14 players.  But the good news is they signed Hunter Johnson who is a very capable quarterback and can replace Watson, plus he has enrolled early already and is getting full speed college snaps come spring ball.  The only thing is I don’t think Clemson will see the playoffs in the next two years, because of a lack of playmakers and experience.

NCAA Football: Texas at OklahomaBig 12 football has been down lately and hasn’t really made any strides as a conference and hasn’t competed that well with any of the other power five conferences.  Remember when people said that Oklahoma was going to give Ohio State a run for their money, yeah they got smacked and it was embarrassing and a waste of a prime time game.  The loser for this conference is clearly Texas.  They hired Tom Herman, but he has a lot of work to do and will need a lot of help building up Texas to what it use to be.  The majority of the top talent this signing class has signed somewhere else than Texas.  The winner of the Big 12 is Oklahoma, even though they got whooped by the buckeyes, they still finished strong this season and with two players up for the Hesiman.  They reloaded again this year with the 8th best recruiting class and still keeping Baker Mayfield.  Baker will have many weapons around him this season as the Sooners should be able to make a run in the Big 12 and possibly the playoff.

USC-Football__1445118949.jpgFinally the last conference is the Pac-12.  The Pac hasn’t been as dominate since Mariota left the ducks but with the emergence of Washington and a Resurrected USC, the PAC should be able to compete better and get more bowl teams and possibly playoff contenders.  My big winner for the PAC and honestly big winner for this class is clearly USC.  They started off rocky but changed quarterbacks and then rallied off wins and played Penn State in the Rose bowl.  USC reloaded this year and finished the top ten this year.  This will be a very dangerous USC team who I’m picking to be in the playoff and the national title game against Bama.  My loser would Cal, they were a very strong team last year in the PAC-12 even though there record didn’t show it, but they couldn’t put together a top 50 recruiting class this year.  They will need to build this program with two or three good recruiting classes in a row and this year wasn’t a good start for Cal.

Now with all this being said, it doesn’t mean jack.  Recruiting classes are just people on paper.  You won’t really know how good a player is until they put the pads on in the fall or the spring if they’re an early enrollee.  Recruiting is also one of the most over hyped things about college sports.  Very few of these recruits will go to their respectful universities and be impact players and start right away.  That’s why the whole recruiting scene is over hyped.  Now most of these players will develop into sound college players after sitting for 1-2 years and maturing and improving their athletic ability.  The players that do start right away, they will be elite and considered future NFL draft picks.  This is also all speculation, none of us can predict how these kids will play or what their future is like.  One thing for sure is they will get an education and get a once an a lifetime opportunity that a lot of people dream about.

Believeland Vs. Dubnation

This topic is something that if you follow the NBA closely you know that this is the finals for the next 3-4 years.  Cleveland and Golden State are just to loaded for them both not to go to the finals.  But see I have a couple things to say and an issue to address with someone I respect.  Golden State and Cleveland have played their two games this season.  The Christmas day game at Cleveland and the second game a couple weeks ago in the bay.  Now the first thing I want to address is Colin Cowherds comment about Cleveland taking a knee the last time they played Golden State.  Now let me say this, I respect Colin and he is very very good at what he does and is at the top of his game.  But for him to say that Cleveland took and knee and didn’t care about that game is simply ignorant.  Cleveland played their big three, Lebron, Kyrie, and Love, and the Warriors played there big three, Curry, Durant, and Thompson.  And the game wasn’t even close, the Warriors dominated the Cavs throughout the whole game.  If Cleveland wanted to take a quote on quote knee, then they shouldn’t have played their big three, but they did.  I don’t believe in taking a game off this early in the season.  Since that loss Cleveland has played terrible going 3-5 and Lebron’s comment about needing another playmaker has happened.  So taking a knee against the best team in the NBA isn’t smart.

Now last years finals was amazing, the best I’ve seen and one for the ages.  3-1 lead blown by the dubs as the king brought home Clevelands first title ever.  This year though is going to be very different, not only are the warriors a better team I think, they are handling everyone they play.  They have a bad loss against Miami, but Miami is red hot right now, 8 game win streak, so that loss is fine, plus its the NBA so your bound to lose a game.  Golden State is 41-7, that is simply amazing, they probably won’t go 73-9 again but if a team can come close to that its this one.  The reason this one will be different assuming both teams make it is because of one reason and its Kevin Durant.  Last time Lebron met Durant in the finals, the heat dominated them and put away OKC.  Durant is a lot better player now then he was then and he has a plethora of superstars around him that are young.  The Cavs on the other hand, do have the king and Kyrie, but the rest of the team is aging and I just don’t see how that team can compete this year with the Dubs!

Barkley Takes on The King

Early this week a very average player in the NBA, took on the King.  Charles Barkley thought he would take some shots at Lebron.  Barkley tore into the king when he cried about not having enough playmakers around him.  Personally Jordan nor Kobe would have said that.  Jordan and Kobe would take it into their own hands and make plays.  Jordan against the Jazz in the 1998 played the greatest finals ever witnessed, the flu game was a once and a life time performance that will never be seen again, I can promise that.  Kobe after losing to the Celtics in 2008, he came back in 2010 and handled Boston each and every game and performed at his best every second of that series.  Barkley does have a point, if Lebron wanted more playmakers he shouldn’t have taken a 3 year 90 million plus deal, which equals out roughly 30 mil plus a year.  Lebron should have done a Tom Brady and could possibly signed Dwayne Wade and other quote on quote playmakers.  Maybe if Lebron wasn’t selfish and played for another ring and not money, because Cleveland doesn’t stand a chance against the Warriors this year.

Now the only problem I have with what Lebron did, is he took many personal shots at Barkley.  Talking about his partying in Vegas, spitting on fans, unpaid debts in Vegas.  Lebron went on to call Barkley a hater, well sorry Lebron but you’ve had haters your whole life and should be used to the noise.  Remember when you went to Miami to get a ring just like Durant is doing at Golden State.  The issue I have is not the comments by Barkley, its the immaturity by Lebron and taking personal shots at Barkley.

Now if you look at it from a statistically view, Lebron is the way better player.  Lebron has more points 27.1 more assists 7.0 better three point percentage 34.0 and better from the line at 74.0 and in less games 1031.  Barkley on the other hand 22.1 points, 3.9 assists, 73.5 from the line, and 26.0 from the three point line and in 1073 games.  The accolades are also in Lebron’s favor, more MVPS, all stars, all defense, rookie of the year and of course 3 three rings.  Barkley comes no where close, zero rings, 1 MVP, and 11 time all star.  Barkley is accomplished but no where near the most decorated player in the NBA history.  In the end though Lebron needs to keep it more professional and ignore the noise, Barkley is like the rest of us and is going to say things to stir the melting pot.

Super Bowl 51

 

This NFL season has been full of surprises and unseen events.  Who would have thought that the Dallas Cowboys, who haven’t been dominate since Emmitt Smith would finish with the best record in the league,  led by rookie sensations Dak Prescott and Ezikel Elliot, who had dominate starts to their seemingly promising careers.  We also saw the Patriots, without Tom Brady, go 3-1 with two quarterbacks without taking meaningful snaps in the NFL. Many argue that it could just be the system, but the numbers and the wins and the Super Bowls don’t lie, they’ve have arguably the greatest head coach (yes even better than Lombardi) in NFL history. We saw The Bengals, rather than taking the next step forward and winning a playoff game, take two steps back and not even make a wild card game. Then we saw a mediocre Green bay team at best through the first 10 weeks of the season catch fire behind the red hot arm of Aaron Rodgers. Quite possibly the largest surprise that no one saw  coming, including me, was the emergence of Atlanta. Led by MVP Matt Ryan, who has finally answered the question of whether or not he was ‘Elite’ with a bold 2016-2017 campaign. Thats not to take away from the play of Julio Jones, who took off after an average start, and exploded for 300 yards in their week 4 game against a decent Panthers secondary.  Personally, this has been one of my favorite NFL seasons to watch and the field is set for one hell of a Super Bowl.

The matchup pits none other than Tom Brady, who is playing for his 5th ring and his 7th Super Bowl overall, and the Patriots against Matt Ryan and an Atlanta team that has continued to prove everyone, myself included, wrong by making it past the stout NFC. Now you simply cannot deny that Atlanta boasts the best offense in the NFL which includes league MVP and the best receiving core in the NFL, not to mention arguably the best tandem of running backs in the NFL, Coleman and Freeman.   For the Patriots and Brady, winning would ultimately submit Brady’s legacy as the greatest quarterback in NFL history, and quite possibly the greatest player as well. As for the Falcons, winning would bring the franchise to a new high they’ve never experienced as it would be the teams first Super Bowl victory and would solidify Matt Ryan’s case as a top 5 quarter back in this league.

Neither defense is necessarily dominate, yet Atlanta’s has been better statistically. Both have played to their strengths well and both have shown weaknesses.  The Patriots had just the 25th best defense statistically in the regular season and 8th best in the playoffs out of 12 teams.  With that being said they have constantly made the plays necessary to keep the Patriots in every game, which shows in their two losses by only 7 and 16 points. They have a very talented defensive back in Malcom Butler who I believe is within the top 10 at his position. He showed just that while holding Antonio Brown to just 77 yards and no touchdowns last week as the Patriots rolled over Pittsburgh.  Atlanta has a very sound defense.  They were ranked 7th in the playoffs and 8th best in the regular season.  Atlanta had the harder path to the Super bowl, they played Seattle and Green Bay.  That being said the defense has been tested.  They held Russell Wilson and red hot Aaron Rodgers in check and dominated both games.  That helps when you have Matt Ryan and Julio.

Now When you look at both these offenses on paper, Atlanta looks a lot better than New England.  Matt, Julio, Sanu, Coleman, Freeman, vs. Brady, Blount, Bennett, Floyd, Edelman, Hogan, Amendola.  The Falcons have a lot of star power vs a lot of good system players.  But the system has won Brady four Super Bowls and taking him to his 7th.  Now Atlanta and New England both have elite offenses. In the regular season Atlanta was 2nd and New England was 4th.  In my opinion New England will win this years Super Bowl, not because of players but because of coaching experience.   Belichick has been there and Quinn hasn’t.

First blog post

My very first post, this is a step in the right direction for my career I believe.

This blog or website whatever you want to call it is something that will either make people reading curious or mad.  Frankly it doesn’t matter to me because my goal is for this to be a real take on the hottest sports topics.  I plan on covering NFL, NBA, MLB, and Conor McGregor.  These are the best sports in the world and grab headlines everyday.

I also will not have a swayed opinion, I mean that by saying some of the big sports hosts I feel get paid to alter their actual opinion on that topic.  With that being said I hope everyone finds my covering of these topics fun, serious, and remembering that this is just my opinion.
