“The NFL Doesn’t Care About Player’s Safety!!!! (DTS Podcast – #96)

NFL Players don’t want to get hurt.

NFL Players fight for their own safety all the time.

Butttttttt, if you offer them more money, they will gladly put themselves in harm’s way.

Makes Sense!

Enjoy your day!

“You’re Fired JAY GRUDEN!!!! (DTS Podcast – #61)

Jay Gruden, (former) head coach of the Washington Redskins, became the 1st coach to be shown the door on Monday morning.

This move came 5 weeks too late if you ask me.

Maybe the Redskins will FINALLY put Dwayne Haskins on the field and see what they’ve got.

But, then again, they are the Redksins….so who the hell knows what they’ll do.

“BAN Vontaze Burfict From The NFL!!!!” (DTS Podcast – #56)

Vontaze Burfict should be in jail right now, so the least the NFL can do is BAN HIM FOR LIFE!!!!

NFL Referees are usually terrible, so when they do something right we should give them a standing ovation.

Week 4 in the NFL was INSANE!!!!

That is all.

“Bill Belichick Is A Grade-A Douchebag!!” (DTS Podcast – Ep. #53)

Bill Belichick thinks he’s special and better than everyone else.

Well, he may win more football games than every other human on the planet, but he’s a bigger A-Hole than everyone on the planet.

Bill Belichick should be ashamed of himself.

“After Today….We Don’t Talk About Antonio Brown!!” (DaveTalksSports Podcast – Ep. #38)

I’m ashamed of myself for spending so much time talking about Antonio Brown. He should go somewhere, away from all of us, and kiss a mirror.

What could possibly be so bad Chandler Catanzaro?!?!

I’m sorry Mets’ fans, you can hate me if you want, but you’re still not making the playoffs.

And Sean Newcomb….control your temper sir!!

“Sleep Deprivation Makes You Stupid!!” (DaveTalksSports Podcast – Ep. #32)

Michael Thomas is the best wide receiver in the NFL you don’t know.

Melvin Gordon, somehow, doesn’t want to live in Los Angeles.

Why, and more importantly, how is Ryan Fitzpatrick STILL in the NFL?!?!

Canelo Alvarez lost his IBF Middleweight Title Belt for WHAT REASON?!

Alright NFL, Show Me What You’ve Got

drew-brees

I’m in a forgiving mood.

I’m going to give the NFL another chance. A chance to redeem itself after the least entertaining Wild Card Weekend I can remember. Despite the little voice inside my head screaming, “this is a bad idea!”, I’m going to prepare the couch for Divisional Weekend. Join me….

Atlanta Falcons (6) @ Philadelphia Eagles (1) – Saturday @ 4:35 P.M. EST (NBC)

The Philadelphia Eagles are about to do something that’s never been done before. No, not bring a Super Bowl to Philadelphia. Start the playoffs, as a #1 seed, as an UNDERDOG. The Eagles finished this season with a 13-3 record, in large part to a fantastic sophomore season from Carson Wentz. Thanks to Wentz’ Week 14, torn ACL, Nick Foles calls under center home. That’s why the peaking at the right moment, Atlanta Falcons are 3-point, road favorites.

This is the toughest game to call. Nick Foles is the ‘x-factor’. Will we see 2013 Nick Foles (64%, 27 TDs, 2 INTs), or 2015 Nick Foles (56%, 7 TDs, 10 INTs)?? Secret door #3 is probably the way Foles’ day will go. On the other hand, can the Falcons continue their strong play and get 1 step closer to returning to consecutive Super Bowls?? If they do, Falcons’ faithful will be thanking Matt Ryan’s right shoulder. However, I don’t think the Falcons are destined to follow in the footsteps of the 1990’s Buffalo Bills.

Prediction: Eagles 24, Falcons 21

Tennessee Titans (5) @ New England Patriots (1) – Saturday @ 8:15 P.M. EST (CBS)

There’s not much to talk about here. The Tennessee Titans didn’t deserve to be in the playoffs, and they certainly don’t deserve to be in the Divisional Round. With their annual, playoff bye week behind them, the New England Patriots are well rested and ready to put that scoreboard to work. Expect this game to get out of hand. Oh, and not that the Patriots needed any extra motivation, but Titans’ safety, Kevin Byard, thought it was a good idea to poke the beast. Byard said, “I want to make him (Tom Brady) look like Blake Bortles.”

That’s not the smartest thing I’ve heard this week.

Prediction: Patriots 45, Titans 17

Jacksonville Jaguars (3) @ Pittsburgh Steelers (2) – Sunday @ 1:05 P.M. EST (CBS)

Yes, the Jacksonville Jaguars demolished the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 5 of the regular season, 30-9. Ben Roethlisberger threw NO touchdowns and 5 interceptions (2 were returned for TDs). But that was a dress rehearsal. This is show time. As good as the Jaguars’ defense is, returning 2 interceptions for TDs, in the same game, is an anomaly. Do you know what isn’t an anomaly?? Blake Bortles throwing for less than 200 yards and committing a turnover.

Bortles threw for less than 200 yards 7 times this season (including 87 yards last week). He also had 19 total turnovers in the 17 games he’s played. That’s not a recipe for success. A well rested Ben + a healthy Brown + Bell in the backfield = success.

Prediction: Steelers 27, Jaguars 19 

New Orleans Saints (4) @ Minnesota Vikings (2) – Sunday @ 4:40 P.M. EST (FOX)

For consecutive weeks, the NFL has saved the best for last. Drew Brees, who turns 39 the day after this game, is looking to make 1 last Super Bowl push. He still has the arm. He has the offensive weapons. And for just the 2nd time in his life, he has a defense worth talking about (last time he had a good defense, he won the Super Bowl). But he must get past a tough, Minnesota Vikings defense, on the road, before he can set his sights on another Lombardi Trophy.

The Vikings’ defense, overshadowed by the Jaguars, may actually be the best defense in the league. They rank 1st in total yards and points allowed per game. And they rank 2nd in passing and rushing yards allowed per game. And just like the Eagles, they have an ‘x-factor’; Case Keenum. While Keenum has had a consistently good season, regression to his previous 4 seasons mean seems likely at any moment.

If the Falcons beat the Eagles, the Saints and Vikings will be playing for the right to host the NFC Championship.

If the Vikings reach the Super Bowl, they’ll become the 1st team in NFL history to play the ‘big game’ on their home field. They’ll have to get past Brees and the 2-headed monster in his backfield first.

Prediction: Saints 23, Vikings 21
