Thieves In The Temple?


    According to a joint statement from DraftKings and FanDuel: “Nothing is more important” than the “integrity of the games we offer.”
    Right, right.

Can They Shake The Hangover?

No one is more anxious to get back to work than Reggie Bush. And for the record, we don’t believe he should be forced to give back his Heisman. Just more folks playing politics.
The Saints and Vikings, in a rematch of last season’s NFC title game, kick off the season Thursday night in New Orleans. Before all the hoopla at the game, there will be a parade in New Orleans, where the the locals will celebrate their Super Bowl victory over the Colts again. Just a warm-up act to the main event.
But can Drew Brees and the Saints repeat? They will have their work cut out for them and the odds will be against them. For starters, they will be facing an angry Vikings’ squad that believes it should have been the one crowned champ, but an ill-advised Brett Favre passed settled that. And the schedule will be a brutal one.
Regardless, plenty of folks are ready to settle in for another NFL season. And we couldn’t get a much better opener to tip it off.
Bottoms up.

A Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste

    Despite the fumbles by Adrian Peterson and the rest of the turnovers, the Vikings had the NFC Championship in their grasp on their final offensive possession. Who goofed? Well obviously, Brett Favre, but again what was Brad Childress thinking? If there was one bet I would have wagered the farm Sunday, it would have been the Minnesota coach having a brain cramp at some point in the game. It’s as reliable as sluggish Monday mornings. That the screw up would occur at the most critical part of it (fellas, the Super Bowl is on line one…oops, it hung up) still blew me away. Dude!
    Of course much of the post-game talk switched from that to “are you coming back, Brett?” I guess you’ve got to ask the question, but we all knew the answer.

Book Dat

    For the first time in their long history, the New Orleans Saints are headed to the Super Bowl. Once one of the worst franchises in sports and a club fans frequently referred to as the “Aints,” the Saints captured the NFC Championship in dramatic fashion. Garrett Hartley’s 40-yard field goal in overtime was the game-winner as New Orleans advanced to the Super Bowl in Miami, where they will meet the Colts on Feb. 7.
    The Saints won despite being outplayed in the second half by Brett Favre and the Vikings, who finished with 475 yards in offense to only 257 for the Saints. But the Vikings got conservative near the end of regulation, running the ball to set up a possible game-winning field goal. On their final offensive play though, they decided to pass, but Brett Favre got picked off by Tracy Porter, forcing overtime. You knew dat didn’t bode well for the Vikings.

Just Like They Drew It Up

    This will be painful for Charger fans. Drew Brees, who San Diego GM A.J. Smith, known around American’s Finest City as the “Lord of No Rings,” discarded like month-old leftovers for Philip Rivers, will be the main reason the Saints march to Miami for their first Super Bowl. Brees and the Saints’ offense have too many weapons for the Vikings to stop and will be the difference in this anticipated matchup. They will overwhelm Minnesota’s secondary. Brett Favre (and he’s praying for a healthy Percy Harvin) will bring his ‘A’ game too, but we’re betting Darren Sharper has a better one. Take that Brad Childress. You left him slip out the back door. Speaking of Childress, he’s never far from a bone-headed move either. So if that happens…oh doctor, the Vikings are in even more trouble.
    Imagine the raucous crowd in the Superdome? No NFL club has home-field advantage like the Saints. On this memorable occasion, it will be no different as New Orleans and their fans experience the ecstasy of its first Super Bowl.
    Our prediction: Saints 31, Vikings 24.
