I like the Pro Bowl.

Eli Manning threw a pick 6.

Owned.

And he went to throw two TD passes to help run up the score further added by Russell Wilson.

I thought the Pro Bowl was pretty entertaining this year. It's an opportunity to cut loose in a way players don't during the regular season. AFC played like crap but maybe if the Patriots weren't uppity cunts it would've been closer.

That's actually something I wanted to bring up. I agree with him about the cold weather Super Bowl being a bad idea, if only because, as a fan, I think it'd be shitty to spend money on a ticket for the Super Bowl and then have to possibly sit out in the open in weather below 32 degrees Fahrenheit for several hours.

This wouldn't even be an issue, though, if NY got its act together and put a damn dome over the thing. Detroit and Minnesota did and their "cold weather" Super Bowl games went swimmingly.

Except football is a sport that were founded as a outdoor sports meant to be played regardless of what weather comes up. If you can't handle the element, then you can see why dome teams generally have trouble getting far in the playoffs. Not to mention one must endure the element to get to where they are.

You can't expect to play playoff games in dome, you will have to go through opponents that plays outdoors as well. At that point, it depends on how well you can match up in any conditions. The wweather will have to be really severe for the game to be rescheduled.

Not to mention the irony of Flacco leading his team to a win in Denver.

On the other hand, the dome would help Eli put up better numbers once winter sets in, thus avoiding the wind.

Stuff like the Halftime show and the post-game celebration will be affected somewhat, but the game itself won't be affected as much, and depending on the teams, it may not bother them that they are playing in a cold-weather Super Bowl, much less the fans.

Teams like Denver, Chicago and Minnesota {in their heyday of the 70's} have always played well in the cold weather, and I don't think that they would mind playing in said weather for all the marbles. Dome/warm weather teams might have a problem, but that generally depends on the offensive style of the team.

This wouldn't even be an issue, though, if NY got its act together and put a damn dome over the thing. Detroit and Minnesota did and their "cold weather" Super Bowl games went swimmingly.

Frankly, I would rather not have the dome over Metlife Stadium for the Super Bowl. It's not going to make much of a difference for Eli, considering that he nearly threw for 5,000 yards last season, and nearly 4,000 without certain WRs at times. Plus, there is always a certain aura about playing football in the cold and snow, especially when some of the memorable {and even controversial} games in NFL history happened in the dead of winter.

Considering that no one has brought this up yet, here are my NFL award picks. {some of them}

NFL MVP: Adrian Peterson. He was the main reason why the Vikings more than tripled their win total from last year and made the playoffs.

Comeback Player: Peyton Manning. 4 neck surgeries and being traded to a new team, that's a lot to overcome in a season, and yet he had just a good of a season as he had in Indy, stats wise at least.

Rookie of the Year: Andrew Luck. This really shouldn't be close, mostly due to RG3 had Morris in the backfield {which will split the votes}, and he did miss some games, and Edward El...err, Russel Wilson having an excellent defense, good running game and some luck against the Pats and Packers. Aside from Wayne, Luck had rookies and no-names on the offense, and yet won 11 games and broke the rookie passing record.

Defensive Player: J.J. Watt, 'nuff said.

Coach of the Year: Chuck Pagano/Bruce Arians. This is probably one of the few times where I can see them split an award to two coaches, considering the impact they had on the Colts.

Moment of the Year: Monday night game between Seahawks and Packers, it's kind of hard not to remember that debacle.

Offensive Player of the Year: Peyton Manning. Not quite an MVP award, but pretty good nonetheless.

I know that there are a bunch of other awards, but these are the ones I really care about the most.

bodyguard for Aaron Hernandez (he's 18 and he's a BIG kid, plus I live right outside of Foxborough), and he said he was with him at a club the other week, and he said some downright BEAUTIFUL girl walked in and asked Hernandez for a picture, and he said "Sorry, I only take pictures with fine *** hoes" and completely ignored her the rest of the time she was there and made her cry.

This is why I hate the Patriots. They're the definition of selfish douches and losing doesn't effect them or teach them anything cause they'll go and drink their lives away later that night. It's pathetic. How the hell did the Patriots get rid of every single one of their veteran players besides Brady for these clowns?

Don't know if the story is true, but if it is it's quite weird that a big guy like Rob would need another big guy who is 18 to be his body guard. But if the Story is true, I hope someone kids the shit out of Rob Gronkowski.

Is that even a news? He did that after the SB loss despite his bum ankle and seem fine.

I know a guy who knows Gronk's cousin's sister who dated Gronk himself and he said she said that Gronk tried to create a batch of virus to hold the world hostage so he can take over as the dictator of the world. It's pretty diabolical and I don't know if it's true.

If so, I hope someone sends James Bond after him.

Hall of Fame voting results will be announced in 30 minutes.

I hope Strahan makes it but I wouldn't be surprised if he gets snubbed considering that they have a dumb 7 entries per year limit nout to mention what the voters did to Parcells.

You never know for certain.

The 7 hall of famers are:

Coach Bill Parcells. {should've been in last year}
WR Cris Carter
DT Warren Sapp
OL Jonathan Ogden and Larry Allen
DL Curley Culp
LB Dave Robinson

Shame that Art Modell didn't get in, considering that he did so much for the game, but I guess some people just can't seem to get over moving the old Browns moving to Baltimore. It's about as ridiculous as Pete Rose not being in the baseball HOF because he gambled on his own team as a manager. Seriously, Browns fans, Modell's dead, and you have your team back, please try to restrain yourselves when Modell does get in the HOF.

I'm glad that he won this award. He deserved this. I believe that without him, the Vikings wouldn't have come close to making the playoffs this season and that while Peyton Manning helped out the Broncos a lot, they could have gotten to the playoffs without him.

Andre Reed got snubbed again but i'm not surprised. The HOF loves their OL and don't really like to add more than one WR a year and Carter was certainly the better receiver. I think it'll be another year or two before he gets in but if Kelly and Thomas got inducted then he deserves it too.

49ers fail, get used to being 5-1!!!! Ravens beat dat ass, and if it wasn't for that Blackout anyone with an IQ above 80 knows that they would have lost in a lop-sided Super Bowl. Ravens had the momentum the entire game up until that freaking 30-40 minute Blackout.

I like the Super Bowl game last night. The 49ers was so close to scoring if they had just run the ball...a few yards is better than non at all...

Houston Texans, 2013 SB winners! (hopefully)

Not gonna hate but I think your Texans and my Eagles need to work on something big time to be considered serious threats in the playoffs. More so my Eagles of course with their pathetic 4-12 record last year.

I did expect Canty to get cut due to the injury issues he had, nice having him though. I hope the Giants find a new deal with Bradshaw.

Ahh the offseason...the most boring time of the year, apart from watching the NFL Draft. My Texans really need to find a good WR and maybe a decent backup QB through the frafy. Andre Johnson is getting close to retiring, and TJ Yates is not what I'd call a good backup QB (decent, but not a "solid" backer). Maybe a couple kids to add depth to the defense (safety and ILBs)...oh and a good corner please.

I see the Texans in prime position to land in the AFC Championship, if we can just finish the season like we are supposed to...not go on a losing streak and missed the "oh so simple" 1st seed...ggrrr

If either team gets there, and I have serious doubts about the latter team even getting there. The Aggies might have the best chance at unseating Alabama in the SEC, but I'm sure that they will be looking for revenge after they lost to them at home. Outside of the SEC teams, the only teams on the outside that could challenge Alabama is either Oregon or Stanford, but they may not get the chance if they keep knocking themselves off every time.

They say that the south will rise again, I'm sure that this is what they meant.

Well, if they can beat Bama at home next season (possible, as long as Manziel does not get worked by Katherine Webb before the kick off), I can see them making it to the title game.

The Houston Texans...Super Bowl champs this coming season?...yes please!

lol, unlikely, my money is on the Colts as Luck continues to develop as an elite QB.

Colts are coming along at least several years ahead of schedule, I will admit. Luck should be fun to watch, but I will say the Texans will be winning the Divisions a few more times before the Colts make a serious contest for the AFC South title.

Otherwise, concerning college football...go Texas, hook em horns. Let's get good players and not suck offensively anymore, lol....

Being that Eli's numbers improved after winning his first SB, I'm guessing that the Ravens are banking on the same for Flacco. I know there is no guarantee that it will happen but if Flacco plays the same way he have always been for the rest of his career, the feathered Browns would still be satisfied.

Even without the postseason play in consideration, he's their best QB since Bernie Kosar.

Where do you think Ed Reed will go now?
