Pit Bulls & The NFL

The NFL  – aka The Shield – needs to think about it’s next policy of enforcement being the restriction of its players owning Pit Bulls. Seriously, perspective needs to be given after the latest incident involving the Pittsburgh Steelers James Harrison’s (Super Bowl MVP XLIII) son. 

With Michael Vick on his way back to the sports, the NFL cannot afford any of its players having issues with these animals.


NFL Buzz: Packers Interested In Former Steelers LB Kevin Greene

We are hearing that McCarthy is considering bringing in former NFL All-Pro Linebacker Kevin Greene to coach/tutor the Packers linebackers. Greene was an outstanding outside linebacker that played 3 years with the Steelers and he also played for Dom Capers with the Carolina Panthers. He has assisted the Steelers and Dolphins during training camps since retiring from the NFL.


Packers Likely To Add Ex-Steelers DB Coach Perry

We’ve learned that Green Bay Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy will be meeting with the Oakland Raiders DB Coach Darren Perry Monday and Tuesday of this week. There is no secret that McCarthy wants to change the defense to the 3-4 scheme which the #1 ranked Pittsburgh Steelers Defense has mastered. Perry has a long history with the Steelers. He was a starting safety with Pittsburgh for 7 years (’98 – ’00) and has 35 career interceptions.

After retiring from the NFL, Perry joined the Dick LeBeau’s Cincinnati Bengals coaching staff in 2002. He then joined Bill Cowher’s staff in Pittsburgh in 2003 and help coach the secondary to a great performance in a Super Bowl Title. When Bill Cowher retired, Perry was recruited to take over the reigns of a very talented Oakland Raiders secondary in 2007.

We believe you Packers fans will be extremely happy with the performance of your secondary next year with this hire. He is credited for developing standout safety Troy Polamula in Pittsburgh.


Mendenhall Robbed At Gunpoint In Chicago

Former Illinois University running back Rashad Mendenhall was robbed at gunpoint in Chicago along the South Side lakefront.

Two thugs were able to get his wallet, phone and cash.


NFL Playoff Predictions

NFC

Wild Card Round – The Redskins are a good story but are one and done… Seattle beats them going away in the 4th quarter to survive another week. The Giants surprise the Buccaneers and win a low-scoring game by a late field goal. Eli Manning plays very well and leads his team by not giving away the ball as he has all year.  

Divsional Round – The Giants will come in banged up after their tough win over the Bucs… they will get hammered by the well rested Cowboys and Tony Romo will set team passing records. The Packers will host the Seahawks in bitterly cold conditions at famed Lambeau Field. The playoff rematch will not go into overtime this time… Packers win big as Farve throws for at least 4 touchdowns.

Championship Round – The heavyweights of the conference will be ready to take each other on to represent the NFC in Super Bowl XLII. The Cowboys will rediscover their running game as Marion Barber will be the best offensive player on the field. The Packers will fall behind early and Farve will press and turn the ball over which will cost them dearly. The Cowboys win a high-scoring game 43 – 31.

AFC

Wild Card Round – The Titans and Vince Young are just not ready physically and mentally for this matchup with the Chargers. LT and crew will allow HC Norv Turner to breath easy and start their gameplan for the next opponent by the end of the 3rd quarter. The Steelers are very banged up and the Jaguars are physical and very confident that they will beat the Steelers. This will be the best game of the first round because the Steelers are a proud bunch and will rise up to meet the force of the Jags. However, the Jags have too much and will wear down HC Mike Tomlin’s team. Jags win.

Divisonal Round – Great matchups here… the Chargers will go to Indy where they’ve had success in the past. However, they will get their doors blown off as Manning will have his offense in high gear and will get an emotional lift as Marvin Harrison returns… Colts win. The best game of the weekend will be the Jags going to Foxboro… league MVP Tom Brady will be at his best and will find Randy Moss a couple times for long scores. The Jags running game will be successful, but not enough this day. Pats win.

Championship Round – The Patriots will be the favorites over the Colts and we concur. This game will not be as close as you’d like to believe. The Colts just don’t have the (healthy) horses to keep up with this Patriots team. Pats win 34 – 18.

Super Bowl XLII – Patriots vs. Cowboys – Brady vs. Romo – Moss vs. T.O.  – this will go down as one of the most entertaining Super Bowls in NFL history. We will get big plays and lots of points. The Patriots have more experience and superior coaching… Pats win 44 – 37.
