El Padrino's Footyball Preview 2007 (AFC)

AFC, toughest division to predict. Usual suspects but who's going to be King of the Hill.

AFC East: Pats to lose.

Pats (13-3) - True the Seymour injury hurts and Harrison won't be there for 4 weeks but they open vs NYJ, then home for two (S.D and Buffalo) then Cincy and Cleveland. 5-0? Not out of the question, 4-1 likely. The offensive additions they made are huge. Moss could be somethig else with Brady if he stays healthy. Can they get to Arizona for a rematch with the Eagles?
Player to watch : WR Randy Moss

Bills (9-7) - Drastic changes on offense and defense. JP is not a scrub and Lynch will be a star. Player to watch : RB Marshawn Lynch


Jets (8-8) - Back to normal. Just feels right.
Player to watch : No one


Dolphins (4-12) - NFC East foes, AFC East foes and NFC North foes. Good morning, good afternoon, good night. Player to watch : TE David Martin


AFC North : Money, hoes and clothes is all a nugga knows.


Ravens (13-3) - Billick calling plays from Day one, the McGahee pick up and the best defense in the game is enough to take them very, very far. Player to watch : RB Willis McGahee


Steelers (10-6) - Re-birth of a QB. Player to watch : WR Santonio Holmes


Bengals (9-7) - Not worried about the offense, it's the defense that's scary. Wasn't Lewis brought in for his defensive knowledge? Player to watch : CB Leon Hall


Browns (3-13) - Where for out thou Romeo? Unemployment line. Player to watch : WR Braylon Edwards


AFC South : VY's in 2012.


Colts (11-5) - Repeating is hard unless you eat hot dogs. Too many key starters lost and the Tarik Glenn retirement stung the nostrils. Player to watch : WR Anthony Gonzalez


Jax Jaguars (10-6) - Can Garrad win in December? January? We know the D is nasty, step up offense. Make a play. Player to watch : RB Maurice-Jones Drew


Texans (9-7) - Surprise! Most wins in team history. Kubiak loves Schaub (hated Carr) and the WR sleeper Jacoby Jones is going to be a nice bookend for Andre Johnson. Player to watch : WR Jacoby Jones


Titans (5-11) - They have zero football players other than Vinsanity. 0. Player to watch : QB Vince Young


AFC West : There is only one L.T folks and he is retired.


Chargers (12-4) - Could Norv Turner fuck up a wet dream? Player to watch : Do I have to tell you?


Denver (11-5) - Tweak here, tweak there and watch out. Denver could make some noise in January. Player to watch : WR Brandon Marshall


Raiders (6-10) - After 2-14 you'd be happy with this too. Luke McNown but? C'mon Kiffie. Player to watch : Agent for Jamarcus Russell.


Cheifs (4-12) - Not a good football team, at all. LJ and Tony. That's it. Player to watch : RB Kolby Smith


AFC Playoffs : Pats, Ravens (Byes)


Chargers over Steelers - Colts over Broncos (again)









Ravens over Colts
Chargers over Pats


Ravens over Chargers



Super Bowl : Ravens defeat Eagles 26-18


Super Bowl MVP : SS Ed Reed

blue...rhymes with pooh....

I think I'm onto something

isiah thomas said...

first comment!!!! Fear the helmet.

isiah thomas said...

great post again EP, I like the Jets player to watch.

good hotdog line also.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I thought this was supposed to be funny.

I guess NYers have different senses of humor.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Bob Sanders is Katt Williams?

"These night shots of downtown Indy are spectacular.

Screw you.

JFreak said...

If the Saints can't score on the Colts, no way Baltimore can.

I demand a revision to your post.

Spaceman Spiff said...

Ankiel is a dirty fuck


see that weazy, hes fucking juiced up thats why hes hitting all the homer

Spaceman Spiff said...

weazy's comeback:

everyones juiced up

Spaceman Spiff said...

reggie wayne looks like a keeper

El Padrino said...

it's game one freak

blue said...

Reggie Wayne is their #1 WR now...you can try and pine on and on about Marvin Harrison, but he's lost a little something, and Reggie Wayne is "the man" now.

El Padrino said...

"Repeating is hard unless you eat hot dogs."

"Where for out thou Romeo? Unemployment line."

"Could Norv Turner fuck up a wet dream?"

all deadly deke, all deadly

El Padrino said...

tiger woo

blue said...

AP allowing 1-AA schools into the poll

this is ridiculous

blue said...

drew brees got me 1 point...one fucking point

blue said...

I'm taking the C off of his jersey right now

ToddPacker said...

i slept for 14 straight hours

ToddPacker said...

i think i got up once to pee

tem said...

i am surprised he got you 1.

ToddPacker said...

fake nyquil and sudafed put me into a coma.... i didn't get a chance to play any video game

ToddPacker said...

very nice LoVad

tem said...

but you feel better?

ToddPacker said...

i guess

ToddPacker said...

i don't want to miss the uf/troy game tomorrow.... i'm sure a full day of tailgating will help my cold (s)

tem said...

alcohol kills germs.

Beth said...

"fake nyquil and sudafed put me into a coma.... i didn't get a chance to play any video game"

At least now you'll be left out of the Congressional inquiry on video game doping.

blue said...

ok the pac-10 poon has been worked on some, hopefully we'll end up with some good pictures and witty comments

or not

Pac-10 poon

I agreed with zeke, the name needed to be changed.

ToddPacker said...

no nl east games last night

tem said...

NLeast. hahaha.

ToddPacker said...

wow i'm the only one who took the pats in the suicide pool.... lots of sea and pit picks

blue said...

I should have taken the Colts

ToddPacker said...

i missed the whole game last night.... slept through every minute

blue said...

you didn't miss much but Manning to Wayne for TD about 4 times

JFreak said...

"Reggie Wayne is their #1 WR now...you can try and pine on and on about Marvin Harrison, but he's lost a little something, and Reggie Wayne is "the man" now."

Just stop with this nonsense. Harrison has not lost anything. That's just crazy talk.

Did you not see him blow right past Mike McKenzie on a simple streak? Only reason he got caught at the two was because Peyton had to underthrow it so the safety couldn't get to it.

Reggie Wayne is very good, but Harrison is still better. That's why, left with a choice, teams will double cover Marvin, not Reggie.

blue said...

ok freak...keep living in your dream world

JFreak said...

"it's game one freak"

I know, I know.

But it's hard not to get excited after a performance like that.

Hopefully they can keep it up.

tem said...

i took the pats in my $$$ suicide pool.

tem said...

the colts played?

blue said...

it's ok to admit your man crush on marvin harrison

blue said...

I think TMQ might be right about the NO aints

JFreak said...

Show me an example of Marvin, "losing a little".

blue said...

example 1,

he only caught 4 balls last night...against bad corners.

old marvin would have had 10

blue said...

i'm not saying that he's not still good, just that reggie has passed him.

JFreak said...

I wonder if that would have anything to do with the Saints doubling Marvin and not Reggie.

I guess not.

blue said...

did you even watch the game freak?

the saints played 2 deep, and then a lot of man2man on the edges...they didn't roll a safety towards marvin's side.

example 2) @Denver last year...there wasn't any double coverage on him there and he had 38 yards rcving

blue said...

point 3) he's 35 years old...ask TP...that's old

Marvin will have to miss a game because he had to visit dr. jellyfinger.

JFreak said...

Yeah, I pretty much made that last comment up. Seeing if I could slide it through without you noticing.

But to say, based off one game's performance, that Marvin is losing it is just silly.

Especially when, during the game, he showed he can still blow past people with the best of them.

And sure, Marvin used to go for 10 catches against defenses like that, but that was when people like Jerome Pathon was the 2nd reciever.

tem said...

damn buckeye fans sent me this. now you have to read it too:

Bud Light presents Real Men of Genius"

(Reaaaaal Men Of Genius)

Today we salute you, Mr. Delusional Michigan Fan.

(Mr. Delusional Michigan Faaaaaan!)

Season after season, year after year, you try to justify your absurdly high preseason ranking.

(Clutching at straws!)

Season after season, year after year, you scramble to make futile attempts at damage control when the Wolverines lose to a grossly inferior opponent.

(How'd Northwestern score fifty fouuuuuur?)

Inevitably, you'll bring up the past, and boast of National Championships won 40 years before you were born.

(Those were the daaaaaays!)

You will point out that you have more wins than any other program as though that is relevant to the current season.

(Been playing since the 1870s!)

Go on, ignore that home loss to your archrivals in the regular season finale and continue to believe that you'll defeat your bowl opponent with striking ease.

(We'll win by thirteeeeeeey!)

So crack open an ice cold Bud Light, oh Emperor of Excuses, and take comfort knowing that when you don't finish in the top 25, you'll be back to number three when the preseason polls come out next year.

(Mr. Delusional Michigan Fan!)

JFreak said...

"it's ok to admit your man crush on marvin harrison"

It's full blown dude. The guy is the best reciever, E V E R. I can't help but love the way he plays.

Plus, he's not a chauvanistic brat whenever he does something well.

blue said...

he is humble

tem said...

i still think rice > harrison.

but will not mock the man crush on starvin marvin.

tem said...

note that the michigan bud light real men of genius thing was probably originally written for Notre Dame.

blue said...

I can't believe that B&T didn't have anything to say about the UM game this last week. I guess even OSU fans are in mourning.

tem said...

Duke LAX players are going after the city for 30M$.

JFreak said...

Tornado test siren.

Ahhhhhhh.

tem said...

Jim Tressel said the loss was embarassing for the whole conference.


I think he might have even added an "even Indiana" after his comment.

blue said...

this month is disaster preparedness month...or so i've been told

blue said...

I thought illinois had some hotshot qb recruit that was a freshman last year, but he's not their starting qb this year I don't think

zook is a genius

tem said...

Illinois does have a good freshman QB.

He played when Juice Williams got hurt last week and they almost won.

Of course they lost because he fumbled on the goal line, then threw a terrible freshman INT. but he looked good.

tem said...

Ill. QB > Notre Dame QB.

so far...in college.

blue said...

Juice was the guy I was thinking of...i didn't realize he got hurt, and was wondering why this other dude was playing

blue said...

Rich-Rod got another year added to his deal

hooray WVU

JFreak said...

"I think he might have even added an "even Indiana" after his comment."

39,000 people were at the game last weekend. I was shocked when I heard that.

tem said...

they were indiana state fans.

JFreak said...

Stupid people from Terre Haute.

Who calls themselves the Sycamores?

blue said...

cincinatti looks decent, could give the mountaineers a run for theri money in the big least

tem said...

that's what the announcers were saying about cinci.

Big East is probably a little better than most people think.

tem said...

UL, WVU, Rutgers are all good.

Cinci, USF are solid teams.

USF > Cinci....probably.

blue said...

didn't the natti upset one of the big 3 last year? Rutgers I think

Spaceman Spiff said...

freak do you know this kid

youtube clip

tem said...

yes natti did upset someone.

usf beat wvu last year too.

tem said...

cinci almost beat WVU too.

tem said...

slow morning.

HUNGRY.

blue said...

cinci lost to UL by 6 last year too...they weren't all that bad

blue said...

I hate dome stadiums

ToddPacker said...

nick lachey likes cinci.... so they must be good

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

TP, you're supposed to fight the drowsiness. That's what puts you in the zone.

blue said...

you know what else I hate....

fat people who park in the handicap spots. You're not handicapped, you made a life choice. The guy missing a leg is handicapped.

And quit using those powered carts in the store...maybe if your ass got up and walked around and did some shopping you wouldn't be so damn fat.

end temrant

"TP, you're supposed to fight the drowsiness. That's what puts you in the zone"


i had no fight in me yesterday

blue said...

there is a guy wearing a j-shirt and jorts in the office today...I laughed so hard my eyes watered.

blue said...

App state travels well

blue said...

the little kid at the end of the 4th video made me laugh

isiah thomas said...

The guy is the best reciever, E V E R. I can't help but love the way he plays.


Marvin is good, Jerry Rice is better.

isiah thomas said...

get your kicks in now freak, your time is coming.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Blue hates fat people. Just like me.

isiah thomas said...

Back-up QB committs a 187

1) What's up with back-up players and murder or attempted murder?

2) "Police allege that Hendricks and the four other suspects are members of a gang known as the Bird Rock Bandits. " - Bird Rock Bandits, what happened to the good gang names?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

yeah, we're not hearing much about the golden domers so far...

isiah thomas said...

I'd mock UM as much as the next guy for last week's debacle, but in context of how good my team is.

ND is awful.

blue said...

New Hampshire isn't gangsta

Mills said...

Ankiel is a dirty fuck


see that weazy, hes fucking juiced up thats why hes hitting all the homer

2:13 AM


Spaceman Spiff said...
weazy's comeback:

everyones juiced up
----------------
Wrong -- it was before he became a hitter.

isiah thomas said...

the murder was in San Diego though....

Bird Rock Gangsters?

Spaceman Spiff said...

yea, so theres absolutely no way ankiels juicing right now?

isiah thomas said...

close matchup between tem and weasel, will weasel go down?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Who wants Muhsin Muhammud?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

*Muhammad

blue said...

I had muhsin in a league last year and was very dissatisfied

Spaceman Spiff said...

when does espn update fantasy points

blue said...

they're updated

tem said...

i have to poop.

blue said...

or at least they were earlier.

now ESPN is telling me my name is santos

isiah thomas said...

I'm completely destorying Champ-yun.

*he hasn't had anyone play yet

blue said...

shamhoff is dying inside with this whole ankiel story...it makes me laugh.

he's committed a lot of effort to the story, I guess his jean shorts will just stay wrinkled

blue said...

that chick from HS musical that I posted her nekkid pic yesterday...her agent has come out and admitted it was her.

conspiracy be damned.

tem said...

jorts wrinkle? i thought no wrinkles was the beauty of them???

keith s said...

"It's full blown dude. The guy is the best reciever, E V E R."

I can't believe this didn't get more objections.

1549 rec., 22895 yds, 14.8 YPC, 197 TD, 13-time Pro Bowler

1022 rec., 13697 yds, 13.4 YPC, 122 TD, 8-time Pro Bowler

One of these guys is not like the other. This is even close freak.

blue said...

keith-

i was letting him have his moment.

I think if Marvin plays until he's 40 like Rice did that he'll get a couple of those records

Spaceman Spiff said...

both my teams are relying on ced benson

Tyler said...

New BIO post. He's embezzling money from the suicide pool he's running a work. Brilliant.

Spaceman Spiff said...

champ-yun did get dumped on last night, its like the guys didnt even show up

Tyler said...

And apparently back in the day, he wrote a song called, "Clemens got a No Decision".

Tyler said...

Rice > Harrison. No contest.

keith s said...

Nice start on the Pac-10 poon blue.

blue said...

tyler, stop, you're killing me

tem said...

i got a rice > marvin in there early on, but like i said, i got no beef with someone crushing on marvin.

blue said...

BIO likes the mole sauce...

who is this guy

tem said...

BIO is embezzling? interesting.

He is probably just putting the funds in an ING account and collecting and keeping the interest.

if he is commish that's probably an acceptable fee if he is doing a good job.

blue said...

I did that one year. Put the money for the NCAA brackets in a high yield fund...I made like .35 cents that whole month

Tyler said...

I think Marvin's a first ballot HOFer, in fact if someone doesn't vote for him, they should have their credentials taken away, but when you're talking about the GOAT, it's Rice.

Tyler said...

Tem, he's using it to have more available cash on hand to pay for things like the chicken enchiladas in molé sauce that he likes so much. He said he'll hit up the ATM or write a check when he has to pay the winner. If someone wrote me a check one week for winning a suicide pool, I would punch them in the face.

Tyler said...

Did you record that on your Taxes, Blue?

blue said...

he didn't enjoy the mole sauce this time though...eating food bought with tainted money just doesn't taste as good.

keith s said...

I'll give Harrison first ballot HOF, but he's not close to #1.

blue said...

"Did you record that on your Taxes, Blue?"

yep, got a 1099 from the bank, so I had to. destroyed my refund

blue said...

Art Monk > Marvin Harrison

blue said...

Steve Largent > Marvin Harrison

blue said...

the list goes on

blue said...

yancy thigpen > marvin harrison

ok, maybe that is too far

keith s said...

of course blue chooses a white receiver. Why don't you just throw Cris Collinsworth in there too.

blue said...

collinsworth was before his time

blue said...

i'd go to bat for Steve Largent against just about anyone except for Rice

keith s said...

Collinsworth played the same time as Largent

blue said...

I know, the collinsworth comment was a joke

blue said...

I meant that he was "before his time" meaning that his abilities were truly appreciated while playing, but now he would be considered great.

of course that all is a very large (s)

blue said...

*weren't

blue said...

JP Losman is in for a long day this weekend.

he made a "leinart-esque" statement about Champ Bailey this week.

something along the lines of "we're going to take our chances, it's our best reciever against their best corner"

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Fuck TPS

blue said...

atta boy deke

Spaceman Spiff said...

i do not like mole sauce, mexican kind or brees kind

blue said...

i'm not a fan of the mole either...or the weasel

JFreak said...

ahaha...who already got elimanated from the suicide pool?

JFreak said...

eliminated*

blue said...

another hot british chick

wearing some clothes, but not much

blue said...

That would be the guy who calls himself "the champ" who was eliminated in the suicide pool

ToddPacker said...

champ had NO?

ToddPacker said...

reggie bush got me 3 points in the keeper league.... not a solid start

ToddPacker said...

i guess champ didn't make a pick

blue said...

champ was too busy hanging out with chicks in his hottub to make a pick

blue said...

TP...which 1-AA school does Florida play this week?

blue said...

the rest of el retardo's column is up

ToddPacker said...

troy

ToddPacker said...

troy is 1-A

keith s said...

Troy McClure?

keith s said...

Troy McClure is A-1.

Troy Glaus is now being implicated in getting shipments of roids

ToddPacker said...

list of troy mcclure’s movies….

ToddPacker said...

"The president's Neck Is Missing!"

cracked me up

ToddPacker said...

"Smoke Yourself Thin"


is funny too

keith s said...

Solid effort by everyone today.

ToddPacker said...

i think it's one of the best day evAr

keith s said...

Using freak's reasoning, that might be a true statement.

ToddPacker said...

you got a home ASU game tomorrow, keith?

keith s said...

Yep, the next 3 weeks. Tomorrow ASU v. Colorado.

blue said...

gotta get some more ASU poon

ToddPacker said...

damn... i jealous of all the 7:00pm kickoffs

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Life sucks. At least I have HD now.

keith s said...

I will try. It's supposed to be 106 again so there should be some out there.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

The Badgers are on fucking Versus tomorrow.

Motherfucking versus.

ToddPacker said...

HD = good

blue said...

versus > espnu or cstv

keith s said...

Me and my buddies have been sending emails to ASU all week. The games are at 7:00 but they don't open the lots for tailgating until 3:30. We got there at 1:00 last week and they wouldn't let us park so we lied and said we were going to the vollyball game. Then we started setting up and they tried to kick us out, but we gave the parking guy a burger and a water and he let us stay. but it's ridiculous that they don't let people park until 3:30.

keith s said...

end temrant. That was my first one, it felt good.

blue said...

what about people who bring their RVs like the day before?

ToddPacker said...

"but they don't open the lots for tailgating until 3:30"


what? that's crazy.... florida opens up the lots at 8:00 am for games 3:30 or later and 7:00 am for noon starts

blue said...

it's harder to find pictures of hot Pac-10 chicks than you'd think

keith s said...

In Columbus they open some lots the night before games. We said in our emails that if ASU wants to become a legit program, then need to let their fans tailgate earlier.

tem said...

i just got sucked into some vortex of a TPS mega meeting.

it hurt like hell.

tem said...

people are already tailgating now.

for the game against Akron.

(NS).

keith s said...

Do you live on Lane Ave tem?

blue said...

Youngstown State, Akron...wtf...is Ohio state just playing all the other teams from Ohio?

next on the schedule...ohio technical institute.

keith s said...

OSU plays at least one in-state school every year. I think they're just trying to keep the money in the state.

(s)

keith s said...

But they play @ Washington this year, and the next 2 years they have a home and home with USC, then a home and home with either Miami or Oklahoma after that. The last 2 years they played Texas, too. So they schedule the big schools too.

blue said...

washington.....HA!

boise state is playing washington

keith s said...

The schedules are made years in advance. To my knowledge, they don't use crystal balls.


(s)

tem said...

i live at the corner of lane and kenny. it's a brand new place.

tem said...

"OSU plays at least one in-state school every year. I think they're just trying to keep the money in the state."

actually this is 100% ns.

tem said...

they scheduled the wash game a long time ago, when wash was solid ish.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I still need that wideout. I hate all of you.

tem said...

in which league?

tem said...

wtf happened to zeke today?

tem said...

i think the suns gamma rays are fucking with the stress levels in ohio.

blue said...

it's a nice 78 degrees out today...I love fall

keith s said...

deke
Don't hate us because your WRs suck

keith s said...

It's a cool 98 degrees here today. I feel like Nick Lachey.

blue said...

hate us because we root for teams better than the brewers


Bush better not muck up tonights game, that homo

keith s said...

Um, I just realized that's 2 Nick Lachey shout outs today. Gross. My fault guys.

tem said...

i hate girl magazines (like cosmo or self)that have things like "everything you ever wanted to know about sex" on the cover. those articles are always the shit i already know. they are the shit everyone knows. guys don't like foreplay, girls do, no shit. they need to tell me things like are some girls really one and done for the night? do i really have to spend the night if its just a one night stand or is leaving early OK? anyway i say fuck those magazine articles.

tem said...

nick lachey had a hot wife.

tem said...

fine, i'll take it.
