The TRUTH about Sports

Too Much Bruschi…

Alright, enough is enough.  I know that Chad Johnson/Ochocinco is a diva.  He’s probably on the downside of his career and will never put up big numbers like he did in his early days with the Bengals.  But give the kid a break.  His tweet of being in awe after “seeing” Tom Brady put up gaudy numbers over the weekend isn’t as bad as everyone is making it to be.  Worst critic has been ex-Patriot now analyst Teddy Bruschi for ripping Chad.  Sometimes, it seems that these announcers/ex-players miss being in the limelight and will do/say anything to get back into it.  I’m not saying that Chad is innocent, but geez. Nobody on the Patriots has criticized him since the day he signed with them.  I’m sure Ocho expected to get more than 1 reception, especially in a game where his QB threw for over 500 yards. Unfortunately, the Pats have a tough schedule this year with games against the Jets, Philly, San Diego, and Pittsburgh. I actually hope that Chad has a similar type season as Randy Moss did his first year with the Pats.  Don’t think it will happen but who knows? At the very least, give the guy a chance to be part of the team.

LOCK of the Week

4-0 on the season… Now it’s getting scary. Damn, if I only had the balls to put money on the games myself, but we all know what’ll happen if I try to cash on on my geniousness… I’m like the guy who wrote the songs for Mini Vanili… Anyway, here’s this week’s lock: Bengals at Jets -6.  Take the NY Jets.  They’ve been playing solid with Favre at the helm.  After a big win against the Arizona Cardinals at home where Farve through 6 tds and now a bye week, this offense is ready to roll on the lowly Bengals.  The same Bengals who are considered the worst team/franchise in the league with an 0-5 record. The same Bengals who wouldn’t even crack the AP Top 25 College poll. I know my picks have been nail biters but a win’s a win. J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!

Ocho Cinco is Muy Loco

So Chad Johnson has legally changed his name to Chad Ocho Cinco.  Why? WHY!!! Is he gonna make more cash marketing it? Is it gonna make him run faster? Didn’t someone tell Chad that you play for the name on the front of the jersey and noone cares about what’s written on the back.  As if the Cincinnati Bengals didn’t have enough questions marks heading into the season. I mean he’s a solid receiver, but he ain’t that good.  Heck, some might argue he’s the second best on the team behind T.J. Houshmanzadeh. But back to the name, talk about an attention whore. Johnson, I mean Cinco, is ruining his already tattered rep. The Bengals are getting free press, but I’m pretty sure this wasn’t what they wanted.  Cincy and Cinco have a lot of questions to answer this year because with all the offensive hype that comes with this team, winning a measly 7 games isn’t gonna cut it.  So Cinco, cerrar tu bola de la boca y del juego.

Cincinnati Bengals: A Season of Disappointment

What a disappointing season by the Cincinnati Bengals. After winning their first game of the season against rival Baltimore, the Bengals went on to lose 5 of their next 6. They are essentially out of the playoffs and are headed to San onthebuzzer.com cincinnati bengalsFrancisco for a rare Saturday matchup, with a dismal 5-8 record. On paper, this team has one of the best offenses in the league, with Carson Palmer at the helm, perrenial 1000 yd rusher in Rudi Johnson, and the deadliest 1-2 wide receiver combo after those Colts in Chad Johnson and Houshmanzadeh. No defense, sure that’s a part of it. But this team is supposed to outscore their opponents. No chemistry, that’s what I call it. Too many bad apples in this bunch. Too many convicts. Too many problems. There is a reason why this team has become the laughing stock of the league. Maybe it’s time to trade Ocho Cinco. Sure there will be less touchdown dances to look forward to. But I’ll trade a dance for a victory anyday. What could go worse for this team? How about losing to a winless Miami Dolphins team on the last week of the season. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Bobby Petrino Leaves the Nest

Just another day at the office for the Atlanta Falcons, as their head coach Bobby Petrino went from losing on Monday Night to accepting a job with the Arkansas Razorbacks within 24 hours. Did he abandon his team? Sure he did.  But wouldn’t you do the same?  The Falcons are in a horrible state.  They have no quarterback, no wide receivers, no established running game and their defearkansas razorbacks onthebuzzer.comnse is getting lit up.  Now the Razorbacks’ job isn’t the greatest out their (I would rather go to Michigan), but at least they are storied and have the potential to make some noise in the SEC. Cornerback DeAngelo Hall came out and said that he does not respect Petrino for abandoning them.  You know what De, get over it.  When will athletes, fans, coaches and whoever else realize that this is a sports.  It’s not like the good old days when teams were one with their cities.  The guy got a better offer with a better program. Plus, he doesn’t have to be political with overpaid babies like Hall. I think Falcons owner Arthur Blank better start slapping his team around before they become the new Cincinattie Bungels.  Until then, WOOOOOOOO PIG SOOIE! WOOOOOOOO PIG SOOIE! WOOOOOOOO PIG SOOIE!

Miamia Dolphins Looking to Remain Perfect

We just finished week 13 and the Miami Dolphins still haven’t won a game. What a freakin’ embarrassment!!! The only team on their schedule that the Dolphins had a chance to beat were the NY Jets, in Maimi and what do you know, the Jets kickedonthebuzzer.com dolphin fans their asses 40-13.  The Dolphins were actually up 13 to 10 before they allowed 30 unanswered points.  I’ve never seen a team this bad.  And I don’t want anyone to play the injury card, because that’s part of the game. Plus the Dolphins only lost 1 key player in Ronnie Brown, the injury to Trent Green wasn’t big, since Green sucked anyway.  Buffalo, Baltimore, New England and Cincy are the games left, I’m hoping that they can win one game for the sake of the players.  But at the same time, I’m hoping they lose the rest to stick it to those ’72 Dolphins.  I guess either way, the Dolphins are ending up with the #1 pick in the draft next year.  I wonder if they can draft and entire NCAA Football team.

Chad Johnson Celebrates a 4-7 Record

onthebuzzer.com chad johnsonChad Johnson finished the day with 12 catches for 103 yards and 3 touchdowns. Then for a celebration, he grabbed a TV camera, swung it around, and began directing his touchdown celebration. Johnson set the Cincinnati Bengals all time receptions record. Now, I’m all for celebrating positive events in life, but with a 4-7 record in a TEAM sport, what gives?  The Cincinnatie Bengals, considered one of the preseason favorites to make the superbowl, have fallen well short of expectations and won’t even make the playoffs this year. Wasn’t Johnson supposed to hold off on celebrations until they reached .500?  I guess he figured that that wouldn’t happen until the start of the 2008 season and couldn’t resist. With his season finishing a little early, Ocho Cinco can pick up some off-season job in the motion picture industry.

Palmer: Don’t Forget About Me!!!

On Monday Night, Carson Palmer reminded the rest of the league why he is considered one of the top quarterbacks in the league. A weekend after Peyton Manning and Tom Brady were heralded as the creme’ de la creme’ of quarterbacks, Carson Palmer might have had the best performance of all, considering he played against one of the top Ds in the league, the Baltimore Ravens. Palmer threw for 2 tds and 194 yds and no picks. While not a spectacular performance, he did show the league that the Bengals are for real and playoff contenders, barring any unforeseen injuries or arrests.
