Steelers Still In the Spirit of Giving

pittsburgh steelers onthebuzzer.comThe Pittsburgh Steelers welcomed the Jacksonville Jaguars into their house on Saturday. They showered the Jaguars with gifts all evening, to make them feel welcome of course. A fumble, three interceptions, and eventually the game, 31-29. Luckily, I picked the Steelers and the points (+2.5) so technically I am a genius.  As for the Steelers, is Big Ben still the man?  Did they lose because of the absence of William Parker? I don’t know.  What I do know is that coach Mike Tomlin has some work to do in the off-season.  The Jags’ season, on the other hand, will come to an end next week when they play the unbeaten New England Patriots.  Until then, enjoy the victory fellas, because in about 7 days, you will not only be on your way to Tahiti (or wherever) but you will have a worse draft pick than the Pittsburgh Steelers. Now who’s the real loser, huh?!, huh?!

Redskins’ Clock Strikes Twelve

redskins onthebuzzer.comRedskins quarterback Todd Collins first interception in 10 years came in the 4th quarter with under 6 minutes left to play.  By the time his second pick came, the game was well out of reach. Both were returned for six. It was fun while it lasted for the Redskins, who only a few weeks ago, were reeling over the loss of their teammate Sean Taylor. Then after climbing back into playoff contention, the ‘skins clinched a wild card birth and were forced to travel to Seattle to play a team who this blogger considered, overrated.  Down 13-0 in the 4th quarter, the ‘skins struck fast and twice in less then 2 1/2 minutes,  going up 14-13. Then, after a botched kick return, the ‘skins had a chance to put the game away but could not hit pay dirt. A missed field goal later, and boom, they’re down 21-14.  Collins’ first pick would ice the game for the ‘hawks.  Now, the Seahawks will go to Lambeau to face Brett Farve, his arm, his running game, his passing game and his defense.  Seattle head coach Mike Holmgren’s return to cheese country will be the focal point of the media.  As for the ‘skins, keep your heads up.  After all that you’ve been through…definitely a successful season.  P.S. fire your kicker.

Boston Celtics: Right Back At You

chauncey billups onthebuzzerAfter losing at home to the Detroit Pistons on a questionable last second foul shot, the Celtics went to the Palace of Auburn Hills and took their pride right back.  Led by Paul Pierce’s 19 pts, 9 rbds, and 7 assts, the Celtics roughed up the Pistons, 92-85.  So, who’s the best team now.  Don’t ask this blogger, because up until tonight, I thought the road to the Eastern Conference Finals went through Detroit. Now??? I do know one thing, the road goes through either Boston or Detroit and not Cleveland or New Jersey or wheverever else.  And home field advantage, it helps, but when it comes to 2 good teams, both these clubs have proven that they can win anywhere. Anyway, gotta go, the Celtics’ bandwagon is leavin’ town.
