I told you a fews weeks ago that all VY does is win. Today, you took his squad 99 yards and tossed the winning touchdown pass with no time on the game clock. Is he really getting better? Can he play the position and shut the haters up? I hope so.

All Vince Young Does Is Win

If Titans Head Coach Jeff Fisher would have played Vince Young when they were 0 – 3 would their season be different? Nobody will ever know, but what we do know that all VY does (it seems) is win.

Vince Young is 3 – 0 since returning to the starting quarterback… just wondering what the locker room is thinking about that.


God Bless Steve McNair… T.R.O.Y.

Steve McNair is one of our faves and so it is a sad day for us. McNair represented the underdog, hard worker, and humble set which are all characteristics which we honor. Regardless of whatever reports come next about his relationship to that 20-year-old woman, our support will not waiver as it relates to McNair.

Why do people get taken from this world far to early? God only knows why he calls them home when he does.

Respect to his wife and four sons.


McNair Calls It A Career

On April 17, 2008, Steve “Air” McNair retired at age 35 after 13 (hard) seasons in the National Football League. McNair threw for 33,068 yards, rushed for 3,590 yards and accounted for 214 total touchdowns (174 pass/ 37 rush).

He is one of just three NFL quarterbacks to total 30,000 passing yards and 3,500 rushing yards. Hall of Famers Fran Tarkenton and Steve Young complete this trio.

As a HBCU student-athlete, McNair set a NCAA record by accumulating 16,823 yards of total offense at Alcorn State. He was an unanimous All-America choice after his senior year. That year he also finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting, won the Walter Payton Award as the best player in Division I-AA and the Eddie Robinson Trophy as the best player at a traditionally black school. McNair averaged an awesome 527.2 yards of total offense per game that year. 

Urban Sports Talk & Entertainment will miss this gridiron warrior… respect to Steve “Air” McNair for advancing the cause of HBCU athletes and the Black Quarterback.


Pacman Jones Tells Michael Irvin He Wants Big D

 aleqm5jurm9hcy3m8q-dcf4wvjva2jtgua.jpg

The buzz created after Adam “Pacman” Jones appeared on the Michael Irvin Radio Show was loud. Everyone immediately knew that Dallas Cowboy owner Jerry Jones would be on the phone asking the Tennessee Titans what they want for Jones. The early word is that Jerry Jones is offering a 7th round pick and a player to be named later.

The Titans aren’t crazy or desperate even after granting Pacman the freedom to work out a deal with another team. He’s a franchise cornerback and they won’t just give him away for that offer.  

If Al Davis and the Raiders could have waited they would have been in the mix for Pacman. We believe he is a better cornerback (and player) than DeAngelo Hall… but it ain’t our money.

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.


The Notorious Pacman Jones

Every now and again, an athlete goes from being famous to “infamous” as fast as Pokey Chatman (fired LSU B-Ball Head Coach) asks for your daughter’s phone number. Even if you don’t follow the National Football League you’ve heard the name Adam “Pacman” Jones (Titans). Like the thugs on the streets say… that name rings bells.

Jones has talked to police in 10 separate incidents since being drafted in April 2005 and has been arrested five times. This is something that a billion dollar industry like the NFL couldn’t ever anticipate.

Pacman’s most publicized run-in occurred in Las Vegas during the 2007 NBA All-Star game. He wanted to show the local talent at the Minxx Gentleman’s Club some love and decided to throw approximately $80,000 on to the stage. What else is a young millionaire supposed to do in Vegas baby?

The dancers didn’t get the memo that he was throwing up the money purely for a visual effect. Those ladies thought this was their night and started to grab as much money as their thongs would hold. Shortly thereafter, all hell broke loose and guns were fired hitting a female customer in the head and two security guards. One of the security guards is now paralyzed for life.

The NFL is presently having their league meetings and have already stated that a “strong” code of conduct will be implemented. Roger Goodell is leading the charge and has the backing of the owners and players to do what is in the best interest of the league. “We will make further revisions to it over the next several weeks, but I do hope to get a revised policy done before the draft,” the commissioner said. “I assure you it will be stronger.”

Many speculate that this new policy, aka The Pacman rule, will force Jones to sit out the entire 2007 season. Other players such as Tank Johnson (Bears) and Chris Henry (Bengals) could be facing a significant suspension as well.

What do you think? Should the NFL be allowed to send Pacman home with his ball for an entire year even though this guy has only been charged and never convicted? Should he get another break and be allowed to make a living?
