Cheating…

So, some NFL sources are saying that 11 of 12 Patriot footballs were under inflated during their absolute drumming of Indy… 11 of 12 seems like 10 too many to be an accident. Now, TheLongTalk will be the first to admit that football is not my forte. TLT knows a bit about the game… mostly ...

What makes an NFL QB a “real QB” ? 3

Yesterday I was bombarded with emails from Philadelphia fans about my support of Michael Vick . They stated that Michael Vick was never a real (whatever that means) quarterback. So, I pose the sporting world with this question, what makes a QB a “real QB” ? To recap, Michael Vick played 12 years, mostly injured, ...

Hernandez is going to walk, bank on it. 6

Since they didn’t arrest him for obstruction of justice I hardly believe they will go after that since they believe they have him for homicide. The funny part is, how in the world can he get convicted with out having the murder weapon? Johnnie Cochran says,” if the glove don’t fit you must acquit”, well ...

Patriots are buying back Hernandez jerseys; what’s one jersey you wish you could trade in? 1

Ever have a favorite players jersey only to see them do something that lands them on the trading block and never to return to your team? Philadelphia fans would know a thing or two about owning a Barkley jersey after he left, or Iverson when he was gone, or Van Horn, or Iggy, or any ...

Bubble Gum, we’re talking about bubble gum, not finger prints. 2

Who Will Play in Super Bowl XLV? 2

This week,  I pose a simple question. Who will play in Super Bowl XLV? From the NFC we have the Packers and the Bears, and from the AFC we have the Steelers and the Jets. Let’s take a look at the NFC first. I have to be honest, I actually watched more of the Bears-Seahawks ...

Why no love for Tebow? 1

The Denver Broncos were trailing the Houston Texans 17-0 at half-time and 23-10 with 11 minutes left in the fourth quarter.  A come from behind fourth quarter win for a rookie quarterback making his second career start.  And yet Tebow gets no love.  ESPN and Foxsports both called Tebow a “raw rookie from Florida.” ESPN ...
