As the sports day today winds down, there is so much to write about that I find myself asking a simple question. What happened to the NFL?
Larry Johnson forgot how to play football and remembered how to get himself into trouble since signing the highest running back contract in the NFL two years ago. See you in 2 weeks Larry.
Tom Cable got cleared of his allegations. Apparently, his assistant couldn't muster the courage or evidence to properly prosecute. 3 of his ex's aim to prove his violent nature in the near future. Good hire Al Davis. Not that your image is impeccable as is, but you're not even halfway through your dreadful season and here comes some more negative attention.
I glanced at the ticker at the top of the screen during the Giants Eagles game and saw a 10-2 score for the Rams Lions game late in the 3rd quarter. That had to be a great game.
The Bucs are 0-7. The Rams got their first win in 17 games (1-7)...against the Lions (1-6). Those two teams are a combined 3-43 in the last two seasons. That's right...3-43. The Browns are 1-7, the Chiefs are 1-6 and somehow Cable punched out half as many wins as newsworthy battery accusers to show a 2-6 record. The NFC West is just as awesome as last year. And oh yeah, the Patriots beat the Titans 59-0.
If you haven't figured out where I am going with this yet, then we will let Tatum Bell of the UFL's Florida Tuskers do the rest. Bell said that his offense would put up MORE than 24 points and his defense would give up LESS than 14 against the Bucs. This point has been argued through and through by all kinds of analysts, columnists, broadcasters etc. Truth is, we won't ever know. But why not?...
Where am I going with this? Come back tomorrow. Here's a hint...English Premier League
