After eight weeks into the season this years NFL seems to be full of surprises. Who would have thought that the Colts would have turned in an 0-8 record thus far? Then we had the Bolts lightning quick start only to be diminshed by their surprising losing streak! Many questions have to be asked at the halfway point. Are the Jets destined to fail this year? Are the Bills for real? What is going on in Dallas? Is there going to be a team that "Lucks Out" and loses all their games for the number one pick in next years draft?
But the real question that has to be asked is which conference is the BEST this year? Could it be the NFC NORTH with Green Bay destroying teams but Minnesota bringing up the rear? Minnesota is starting to show some signs of life now! Or maybe it has to be the AFC NORTH with the stron Defenses of Pittsburgh and Baltimore and the surprise Bengals at 5-2? This division has nineteen (count it..19) wins already! All four teams in the AFC NORTH are ranked in the top FIVE defensively!
My homer pick says the AFC NORTH wins this argument hands down. It is defense that wins championships. Remember the Chicago D with the Fridge?

With the Reds slowly fading in the NL Central one would have to wonder what might have been. The Reds certainly have the talent to win this division this year but for some reason have been fading fast.
A couple of questions that need answered: Is it too many injuries that have limited victories this year? Is Dusty Baker the main problem for this talented group of budding stars?
With all the talent in Louisville you might have to question why the dragging of the feet in calling up Cozart? After a couple of weeks in the Bigs he has only managed to scrape together a .333 batting average. Then why not start Heisey on a regular basis? It seems as though every time a player gets on a roll he sits them down to "cool" off.
Something needs to happen quickly. Is it time to push the "panic" button? Not yet, but this team is teetering on the edge of disaster.

none other than Ohio State's own Mr. "Beanie" Wells. Wait a secong Tebow lovers. Yes, Tebow is great and yes he won it last year. But, that fact alone is why he will NOT win it this year. I don't think they want another back to back winner like they had in Archie Griffin. So, hand it over Mr. Tebow. It is time for another Buckeye runner to take the coveted prize home.

Billy is getting his team ready for another great show this year. The cast has been set and the tape is rolling. Now comes the tough part! How in the world is Billy going to get the players and coaches to stay focused for the "entire" season? Very simple, he bought them ALL a video camera! HA HA HAR HA HA HA HA! I'm rolling on the floor! My side hurts! This is tooooo much! Roll on cheaters!

We have heard it discussed over and over and it still seems to be a problem for most. I say most because "most" are affected and only a select "few" are immune. The age old question regards the hot topic of a salary cap in MLB. We have seen how it helps other leagues i.e. the NFL. Don't you think that it would be a HUGE help for MLB as a WHOLE? Why can't every team be a "possible" playoff team at the beginning of the season. In the NFL, many times you can flip a coin as to who will break away from the rest of the pack and emerge as a playoff team. Why can't we have that in MLB and see all the small market teams benefit. I can't figure out why we have to suffer with the same teams every year (Boston, New York, Etc etc...) as the front runners to win it all. Then we see some that are so close and not have the finances to get over the top. The BIG BROTHER just forks out the cash and picks up whatever they need. (New York: NADY and company) Come on MLB. Let's spead the wealth.

The Bengal's Chris Henry has finally reached his goal. He was released from the Bengals the other day. This ONLY happened after numerous episodes with the law. Is he another product of our failing society? Does an individual like Chris get overlooked because of his talent on the field? Shouldn't someone have noticed his problems socially YEARS AGO? This is happening every day yet because someone can run, catch, or hit a ball many sad to say "look the other way". A very sad inditement on our society today!

We heard the gloom and doom as soon as the moves were made to put a winner back in Boston. The media and the fans were lighting up the web sites. This team could not last. The weight of the injury bug and the heavy burden of the natural process called "aging" were sure to take hold. The Celtics could not stand under the pressure of these two heavy monsters that were certain to cause a collapse. Could somebody check to see if they are listening? The big guys have sat on the bench and watched....the others hold the ship together. This was NOT supposed to happen! Most recently the Spurs were set to take the men in green down with Garnett watching helplessly from the bench. It didn't happen. Something is wrong. Somebody is not listening in BOSTON. Will this continue? According to everyone else outside Boston, no. Stay tuned and listen up or tell the Celtics to tune in and listen.
