  1. NFL Post-Superbowl L : Wheeling Off Into the Sunset

    It's interesting then that after Kelly got hired that Kaepernick was openly dreaming of being the Jets QB.  Anyway it was clearly the right move because ESPN is predicting the 49ers will win the Superbowl next year so that has to feel pretty good.

    I'd love to see him somewhere else. (Hell I'd love to see the Kings somewhere else, like Seattle). The whole franchise is hopelessly backwards at this point. And I don't see a lot of hope for making things better in the short term.  It's just tough for them to give up their only superstar when there's no guarantee of how they'll get another one. But gotta do something to shake things up IMO. Boston can offer a bunch of pretty good players and more importantly draft picks so can see that making sense for both sides. Boston's needed to make a 3 for 1 deal forever. That team exists exclusively to facilitate a blockbuster trade. Make it happen NBA. Wizards maybe should also consider revisiting Beal + ??? for Cousins as hope for getting KD slowly dies. Really want to see Wall play with a superstar and their friendship and complimentary abilities are the best hope for keeping Cousins sane going forward. But at the same time, the league is becoming more perimeter oriented and Golden State's a pretty good case study for why cashing in talented young players for a superstar isn't always ideal. It's a moot point besides until KD decides what he's gonna do.

    Yeah Cousins' excellent season vindicated Shanahan quite a bit. It suddenly makes a bit more sense why he'd consistently speak so highly of a goofy 4th rounder who was frequently a disaster early on. It takes on a different feel now, less about sticking it to RG3 and more about recognizing the mostly intangible qualities that lead to being successful in the league. And, yes, look at his track record. The guy gets more out of QBs and RBs than anyone. His one major weakness is that he's constantly failed at identifying quality DCs. But still guys who bring huge value-adds to an offense aren't just out there generally. He probably should have been hired in this last cycle but it's possible he's still demanding too much control.

    Gregg Popovich!

    Internet rumors are half the fun. I can only muster so much excitement for Wizards-Knicks tonight.  And hey where there's smoke there's often fire. Except in the case of the Kings. For them where there's smoke it means reactor 1 is about to meltdown.

    So FO has weighed in. According to their numbers, Peyton Manning just had the 3rd worst performance by a QB in the Superbowl since 1989. Only ones worse were Kerry Collins and John Elway in games each QB lost by 30+ points. Certainly it was the worst performance by a winning QB ever.  It was also the 2nd worst playoff run by a QB ever. Somehow Bledsoe in 1996 was even worse.  This another way of saying Denver's D was incredible really all playoffs long. In some other alternate dimension where this game is being played out Von Miller misses the Superbowl due to injury and so Denver never gets the 2 TDs he gifted them and lose 24-6.

    If the Browns were a person, it'd be the type of guy whose alibi in divorce court for why he couldn't have been cheating on his wife was because he was committing arson at the time in question.

    I don't think so. Between Vivek bizarrely firing the coach Cousins actually loved, Mike Malone, and then bringing in a coach who immediately tried (and failed) to make a power play by trading Cousins...that relationship was DOA. Their relative early success this year just postponed the inevitable. Anyway I agree with the larger point that Karl is getting fired due to the larger organizational dysfunction more than anything. But the guy made his own share of missteps, namely taking this job to begin with.

    I think in this case it's more Cousins hating him. The coaches we've seen fired thus far have both been guys who don't have the support of their star player. For awhile this team was actually on track for the 8th seed before falling apart in the last couple weeks.   The other thing with the Kings is their owner is so incompetent that his minority owners are on the verge of staging a coup. This is potentially something pretty unprecedented. One of the worst things about being a sports fan is you can't fire the owner. Though if Vivek manages to get himself fired, that's an amazing moment in sports history.

    Yeah, the officiating was really bad. On the Cotchery play, it was clear he caught it, but Mike Carey weighed in that it was a catch so I believe that actually overrides the call on the field and they're forced to go the other way. But the other irritating thing about the reffing was Clete Blakeman was pulling a mini-Hochuli seemingly in this need to make the game about him. The fact I even know his name is part of the problem. Got irritated when he kept showing up on my screen in a game that's already 4 hours long. Hell, he even felt a need to call penalty with 10 seconds left when the game was clearly over. You could tell he was gunning for this.  Anyway, completely agreed on the Halftime show. Coldplay was a vampiric presence of the otherwise Beyonce/Bruno Mars awesomeness. Honestly, I'd be fine making Bruno Mars the Superbowl halftime act in perpetuity. He performed 2 years ago...but did anyone have a problem with him being brought back? Anyone at all?

    Well right up until it becomes winning time. Then he gets his game face on

    I still gotta laugh at Peyton Manning leaving the NFL the way he lived in the NFL: shilling Budweiser and hugging Papa John. I'd like to believe he was trolling America or making fun of himself but sadly we know it's more a case of there never not being a right time to cash a 7 figure check for the ol' sheriff.  Woulda been nice to have one raw, unscripted, emotional moment to celebrate a legendary career and inevitable retirement. Just glad we could get that from brother Elisha instead:

    That game was nuts. OKC coming back from 20 down. Durant putting up a 40/14 and coming short because GS's bench >>> OKC.  It really feels like the Bulls '96 season where every game Golden State plays is an event.
