Monday P.M. Quickie: For Gilbert? Anything.

(1) Arenas' 51: Gilbert's recent shooting slump had me worried for a second. Then he dropped 51 on the Jazz today, including a game-winning 3 at the buzzer. All remains right in the world.

(2) Adrian Peterson turning pro: Of course he's leaving early. He's a Top 10 talent. He should have been able to leave after his monster freshman season, but that's another argument.

(3) Ted Ginn Jr. turning pro, too: Is he the offensive version of Devin Hester? (Bigger: Did his dad really tell him to stay out of the BCS title game after his game-opening injury?)

(4) Webber to the Pistons: What does it say about C-Webb's career of reluctant success that he'll likely thrive in the role as Detroit's "5th option?"

(5) New CBB Top 25: Gators back to No. 1. Doesn't it make you sick? (I didn't comment on the UNC loss from the weekend. (a) They were due. (b) How 'bout them Hokies?)

(6) The biggest media-manufactured non-story of the weekend? The argument about the Pats' so-called "classlessness" in the way they celebrated their win over the Chargers. Zzz...

Actually, the biggest manufactured non-story is the Gators #1 ranking. Remebmber that in basketball rankings mean nothing. The championship is decided (gasp) on the court!

Personally, I think Wisconsin is the best team. Tucker is amazing. Ginn will flop in the NFL. I highly doubt his dad told him to sit during the championship and if he did, Jr never should have listened. Peterson easily becomes the top RB in the draft and probably a Top 5 pick. NBA-who cares?

What is with the new guys coming in here with all the anger in their posts?

Hey San Diego and the Media, The Patriots celebrating should be none story. The Patriots winning a game they should of lost should be the story. BUT Tomlinson has to cry and be a sore loser and show that all is, is a cry baby and the media of course blows it out proportion.

Watch the Patriots will win Sunday and there will some contversial call and that all we will her from the AFC Championship Game until the Super Bowl.


GET OVER IT SAN DIEGO YOU LOST, YOU CHOKED, YOU DESERVED TO BE MOCKED.

And remember LdT, "Stay Classy, San Diego."

Or simply agree to disagree with the way the Pats do their dancin'.

Wouldn't you be made if your name was German for a whale's vagina? No wonder LDT went off.

How can San Diego say that New England was classless for doing the Merriman dance? Is it classless for Merriman to dance after he sacks a QB (in his face, no less)?

If they didn't want any celebrating on their field, then win the game.

EPorvaznik said...

Well, LDT will have plenty of time for jogging in the off-season. I believe the "j" is silent. I don't know.

rafael said...

no no no. The biggest media-manufactured non-story is the whole everyone rooting for Saints line of thought.

Giving the Pats a free pass is lame.


Don't think Ginn will flop in the NFL...though that depends on what you expect him to be. I think Ginn will be a PR/KR and an outside receiver in a 4-5 WR offense. I think he'll be very good at that.

Actually I found it funny that Merriman did his dance after hitting Brady, not even getting a sack. That was the last I heard from him in that game too.

But SD and specifically LdT are coming off as a whiney babies. I actually lost respect for LdT because of his little rant. He should be pissed because his teammates and coach lost him the game. There's lots of focus on the lost timeout on the replay, but what about the one where Rivers called a timeout after an injury timeout!

I'm just upset the Colts made it to the championship, its a lose-lose situation. Either the Pats win and all we here about is how Peyton still can't win. Or the Colts win and all we here is that Peyton finally won a big game. I hate two freaking weeks between the championships and the SB. The media talks about the same thing over and over and over and over and over... did you know that Bettis was going home for last years SB?

Dan, where is the love for Brohm returning for his senior season? That will have more of an effect on next season than any of the defectors.

Biff said...

Hmmm... I don't know if Ginn really had a choice. Click here for picture of injury.

Mike said...

Ok, ok, I'll bite.

LdT WAS probably mad at his teammates for dropping everything but the kitchen sink, and he probably wanted to go up there and lay into them, but you and I both know the media crucifies players for that.

So when the Pats go and pull a Miami on the Chargers logo (and come on, you can't tell me that a college team wouldn't get nailed for doing that, because it happened a couple times this season), he had his target, and he let fly.

Sadly the Gators #1 ranking is not a non-story, but rather solid proof that we'll be losing to Ole Miss this Saturday. I'd rather it not happen, but when your team has never won a game against a legitimate team while holding the number 1 ranking... well, I'd rather not repeat yesterday's superstition discussion, but yeah. Not good.
