Bills Hire Rex

 

Rex Ryan of the National Football League has gained a reputation over the last handful of years for making statements about his football teams greatness that have failed to manifest. Although he is well liked by fans, he seems to have a disillusion with his team and thinks that they are the best in the NFL, regardless of what is going on in the organization. That mentality can be a good thing and it can be a bad thing. Rex Ryan took the Jets to the AFC championship game several years ago when Mark Sanchez was actually playing good football and looked to be a dominant figure in the National Football league, but the Jets only won four games this season and Rex Ryan was quickly shown the door. There was a lot of speculation as to where he would wind up and the general consensus was that he would take over the Chicago Bears coaching job that was up for grabs, due to his connections through his dad to the organization. However, the Bears wanted nothing to do with Rex Ryan and he ended up finding a job with the Buffalo Bills as the new head coach. It has come to light over the last several days that Rex Ryan was absolutely not the Buffalo Bills first choice for a head coach, according to eleicoes2014, but it looks as if they have found a man that will do what he has to for the organization. Fans of the team like Zeca Oliveira will see the team with new direction in the upcoming season.

Buccaneers turn to Bajakian as QB Coach

After adding Dirk Koetter as the new offensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the team has turned to Mike Bajakian to become the team’s quarterbacks in 2015. It may be a sign that the team intends to draft a QB fairly high and with two Heisman Trophy winners in this year’s college class it is likely one may be a Buccaneer.

My friend Dave Morin, (you may know him if you were in Harvard Physics), noted that Tampa Bay needs the fresh start that their new coaching staff will bring. A team that finished last season with 2 wins and 14 losses, compounded by its offense being rated as 4rd worst in points scored and 3rd worst for total offense, it will take all the help it can stand.

Whether the next Bucs QB is Marcus Mariotta or Jameis Winston or an unknown kid from Montana they will be called upon to lead the team to victory and it will be Bajakian coaching them to get there.

 

Bajakian is coming from the University of Tennessee where he also coached young QB’s through the ranks of college. However, as many Quarterbacks learn in the NFL it is a different level that the defenses play at in this league. You will not get by with luck and personal skill alone. Even though he has coached in the NFL previously under coach Lovie Smith (eight years ago), Tampa Bay fans are hoping that whoever the QB is next year and Coach Bajakian are not going to take forever coming up to speed. Otherwise the offense will not improve and the team will waste another season trying to rebuild its franchise.

Aikman on New England

 

Former quarterback of the National Football League Troy Aikman has been one of the most vocal people that have stated their opinions to the media in regards to the media storm that has been created from the New England Patriots scandal that they intentionally deflated balls to gain a competitive advantage against the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC championship game. Huge amounts of former quarterbacks are coming forward to state their opinions on the incident because they themselves have gone through the procedures that quarterbacks in the NFL will go through on a weekly basis. Troy Aikman flat out thinks that Tom Brady knew what he was doing and that he is lying about not knowing that the footballs were deflated. He stated on a radio broadcast earlier today that the Patriots need to pay dearly for what they have done and that it should be more severe than what happened in New Orleans, when head coach Sean Peyton was suspended for an entire season due to the pay-for-hit system that they had set up. Aikman stated that the Patriots have already been caught red handed cheating and that they need a strict punishment to show the league that this kind of situation will not be dealt with in the National Football league. No one knows better than Troy Aikman, who is most likely responsible for this situation and if he says the quarterback knew about it, he is probably right.
Aikman brings up other issues other than the quarterback obviously knowing if footballs were knowledgeably deflated. He brings up the issue that bothers fans, Lee Slaughter the most, it’s that the Patriots were cheating and wikia.com states that is one of the worst things you can do in organized sports.

Who Is On Top Of The NBA?

 

The Warriors and the Hawks. Yes, you heard me right. The Warriors just blew out another opponent, and they have the best win percentage in the league. They are riding high after beating the Rockets, and the Hawks are on a 14 game win streak.Nobody in the world would have thought that Warriors and Hawks of all teams would have their coaches coaching the All-Star game, but there it is. Those two teams are so much better than the other teams in their conferences that it might be tempting to just cancel the rest of the season and hold the NBA Finals right now. Fans of the teams like Fersen Lambranho are shocked.

If the season ended today and we went chalk all the way to the Finals the Golden State Warriors and the Atlanta Hawks would be in the Finals. One tea, has never been past the second round of the playoffs and the other cannot remember the last time it was this relevant. The best player in the history of the franchise has been retired forever, and it has been even longer since he scored 100 points in a game.

This is a new day in the NBA because shooting and team basketball is winning over half court offenses.

Jeff Gordon To Retire

 

Jeff Gordon has said that this will be his last full-time season in NASCAR. Jeff Gordon has been in the sport since he came up from sprint cars in 1993. I remember him running USAC races in the late 80s and early 90s. I also remember when he became the most popular driver in the sport overnight, but my Dad did not like it because he was a yankee from California.

However, according to my super hardcore NASCAR buff friend Sultan Alhokair Gordon was the person that brought NASCAR into the mainstream, and he was the person that made it the sport that moved to number two in the public ratings in America. He is a four-time champion, and he has flirted with titles a couple other times. However, he is becoming one of the elder statesmen of the sport, and he cannot compete with the younger guys like he used to.

He is hanging them up now so that he can devote himself to other things. He has been able to gain an equity partnership in his own team, and he will be able to run the occasional race in the same way that Mark Martin has over the years. He will be missed on the track, and maybe Chase Elliot will get his 24.

Cavalier Consider Firing Coach

The Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association had a huge amount of media attention at the beginning of the season due to the fact that they were reuniting with superstar LeBron James and were also getting Kevin Love for the first time. They combined this with hiring rookie head coach David Blatt, who has spent the majority of his career coaching overseas. This has proved to be a major problem in Cleveland, as the Cavaliers are just barely hovering at 500 and do not appear to be a dominant factor in the Eastern Conference. Gianfrancesco Genoso knows this wouldn’t even be saying much, as the East is so far below the Western Conference that it is starting to get absolutely absurd. Either way you look at it, things are not going as anticipated in Cleveland and changes are likely on the way soon. They made a big trade earlier this season that looked to make a huge change to the way that they had been playing, but it has failed to make an impact on a team that is just not rising to the occasion. It looks as if head coach David Blatt is going to get the boot, as LeBron James has stated he simply does not like him and the record the Cavaliers are posting just backs the fact that it is not a good fit. Any way you spin it, the Cavaliers need to make major changes soon.

Only Cheating if Caught

With the New England Patriots of the National Football League under fire yet again under allegations of cheating, it is starting to infuriate people from every corner of the league. Super-fan Igor Cornelsen has learned that although an investigation is under way in regards to the New England Patriots deflating balls in their AFC championship win against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, there is not concrete proof that the organization intentionally deflated the balls to gain the upper hand. What is making a big stink around the league is that the Patriots continually seem to be as sneaky as possible, trying to get any edge that they can get their hands on. They are being compared to the Eddie Haskell of pro football, as they look so slimy that you would want to wash your hands off after making contact with one of them. Bill Belichick is one of the best coaches of all time if you actually break it down statistically and he will undoubtedly be going to the hall of fame if he does not get any more red marks for cheating on his record. What is really offensive about the allegations that have plagued this organization is the fact that Bill Belichick absolutely knows what is cheating and what is legal in the National Football League. He is too talented of a coach to not understand the rule book and it has become very apparent that it is only cheating to him if he is caught.

Hockey: Injuries Matter

The Nashville Predators announced that Pekka Rinne had suffered a strained knee, and as a result he might miss the next three games.

The goalkeeper Jaroslav Halak will participate in All-Star game, said the ‘New York Islanders’ on Thursday noon. He will replace the Red Wings goalkeeper Jimmy Howard Detroit, who has got a groin injury.

Slovak goalie was Price’s teammate from 2007 to 2010 and they could again be united on January 25 provided they are selected by Toews Team or Team Foligno. Halak had a record of 23-8 in 31 games with goals against average of 2.22 and an efficiency rating of 91.7 percent. He is tied with Price for third in the NHL.

It is worth mentioning that on Thursday, another goalkeeper supposed to participate in the All-Star game was forfeited. Now, goalie of the Pittsburgh Penguins Marc-Andre Fleury will replace him on 25 January. While the team and fans like Sultan Alhokair are worried that his departure will probably mean some trouble for the club, they believe that they will be able to go on.

Meanwhile, Rinne will not be in action against the Washington Capitals, the Red Wings and Canadiens.

He suffered the injury in the third period of the match that ended 5-1 in favor of Predators against the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night. The health of Rinne, who was supposed to participate in the All-Star game, will be reassessed after the break-Star Game.

Cardale Jones Risks It All, Returns to Ohio State

No third-string college quarterback has had as good of a three-game stretch as Cardale Jones. He came in when the Ohio State Buckeyes’ second-string QB went down with an injury—they’d already lost their starter earlier in the year—and he won the Big Ten Championsinhip Game, the first college playoff game, and then the National Championship Game.

Instantly, there was talk about whether or not he should go pro. This was a guy who was sitting on the bench at the start of the year, but suddenly he might be able to make it in the NFL. Instead, he decided that he did not want to go pro, and he has chosen to go back to Ohio State. While it may be the right decision, it is also a huge risk.

The gamble is that no NFL team is going to take Jones in the first round of the draft after just three starts, and that’s where he wants to go. First round picks get a lot more money than guys who go in the second or third round. The risk, though, is that he may never again play as well as he did in those three games. He was on the bench for a reason, after all. He does not even know if he will be the starter in 2015. If he does not play well again, his stock could fall dramatically, which is bad news for fan Gianfrancesco Genoso.
