Johan Santana To Red Sox?

Damn, if this happens it won't just be the Yankees who'll be in trouble, but the whole league could be bowing down to Red Sox Nation for years to come.

Sean Taylor Dies From Injuries

Sad news:

Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor died early Tuesday from the gunshot wound he suffered a day earlier in his Miami home.

"He did not make it through the night," said Taylor's attorney, Richard Sharpstein, who called the incident "a ridiculous, unnecessary tragedy."

Taylor, 24, a Pro Bowl safety whose rocky first years in the NFL had given way to what teammates called a newfound maturity, died at Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he had been taken after being shot once in the leg early Monday morning. Police are investigating the incident as a possible home invasion.

Devin Hester Vs. The Broncos

If the Giants are going to have a chance this Sunday, they better make sure they keep the ball as far away from Devin Hester as possible. The guy's THAT good as the Broncos can certainly attest.

Eli Manning Still Sucks

If you're a Giants fan, you have to be greatly concerned about the future of your team with Eli Manning at the helm. It's been about 5 years now and there's just now way you can believe that Peyton's little brother will ever be better than a good QB. And while good QB's can win you Super Bowls (see: Trent Dilfer, Doug Williams, etc.), usually a great defense is also required and the Giants don't have that. Remember too, as the first overall pick of the 2004 NFL draft, it's not asking too much that Eli be better than what he's shown so far.

Cowboys 34, Jets 3

I think it's safe to say at this point that we're just playing out the string. But give rookie CB Darrelle Revis credit for having a good year tho.

Brett Favre Mulling Return In '08

With the kind of season the old man is having, why shouldn't he come back for another run? Unless, of course, he wins another Super Bowl.

Jets 19, Steelers 16 (OT)

A trick play for our only touchdown, 4 field goals, 7 sacks. Thomas Jones and obviously Mike Nugent looked good tho', but I don't know if Kellen Clemens is proving to be the answer for our franchise.

Bonds Indicted, Could Face 30 Years

Of course, there's a rush by the sports media to convict Bonds even though he hasn't been found guilty of anything. That has all to do with Bonds personality which the media likens to that of a troll. But it stinks of hypocrisy if Bonds is the only athlete going to the big house for Baseball's "steroid era". Anyone else remember Rafael Palmeiro's big fib in front of Congress, or for that matter Mark McGuire admitting using those Andro pills? Regardless of the outcome to all of this you just know that it'll cost him the Hall of Fame.

Yankees Can Keep Alex Rodriguez

Hey, maybe he is sincere about wanting to be a Yankee, but then again as image-conscious as A-Rod is, I wouldn't be surprised that his reaching out to the Yankees is more about the deserved beating he's taken in the press of late. After all, announcing you're "opting out" during the World series was stupid and so was treating the Yankees like they need you when you've been nothing but a playoff bust while wearing the famous pinstripes. Despite all of that if the Yankees want to keep Mr. April for $300 million, that's fine by me because I certainly never wanted him on my team.

Where Is Stephon Marbury?

Ha! So the overrated, no defense, doesn't make his teammates better and selfish act has finally caught up to Stephon Marbury who lost his starting job and may be on the move. Well my only question is what took so long? What took so long for Isiah Thomas and James Dolan to see what a headcase Marbury is? My guess is all the trouble Marbury and big mouth caused during the offseason, but who cares? Stephon Marbury has long proven that he's bad news for any NBA team he plays on. If he's gone for good, I say good riddance.

I'm Betting On Sugar Shane Tonight

Nothing against Miguel Cotto who I like and always puts up a great fight no matter who he's facing, but if there's anyone who can stand toe-to-toe with anybody it's Shane Mosley. And he has the knockout power to make sure Cotto doesn't get up. Tonight we'll see.

Minnesota Vikings Have No Class

Pretty heartless:

The Minnesota Vikings have docked wide receiver Troy Williamson one game check for missing last Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers to attend the Monday funeral of his maternal grandmother. Based on his 2007 salary of $435,000, the action by the Vikings will cost the three-year veteran $25,588. Williamson has 45 days to appeal Minnesota's decision to withhold his pay, and NFL Players Association sources said he will do so.

The team apparently apprised Williamson on Wednesday that he would not receive a paycheck for the game that he missed. "I don't care if they would have [taken] my pay for the rest of the year, I was going home," Williamson told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "It wouldn't have mattered to me."

Don Shula: Put Asterisk On Pats If They Break Record

Considering the way the insular NFL coaching club operates, this is pretty heavy language from a Hall of Fame coach:

Don Shula likes the Patriots' chances of going undefeated, but the Bill Belichick-inspired spying scandal has clouded Shula's thinking when comparing New England with his unbeaten 1972 Dolphins team.

"The Spygate thing has diminished what they've accomplished," Shula said in an interview with the New York Daily News. "You would hate to have that attached to your accomplishments. They've got it."

Belichick was fined $500,000 and the Patriots were fined $250,000 and lost a first-round draft pick for videotaping the Jets' opposing sideline during the teams' season-opening game.

"That tells you the seriousness or significance of what they found," Shula said, according to the Daily News. "I guess you got the same thing as putting an asterisk by Barry Bonds' home run record. "I guess it will be noted that the Patriots were fined and a No. 1 draft choice was taken away during that year of accomplishment. The sad thing is Tom Brady looks so good, it doesn't look like he needs any help."

Roger Goddell Says No Again To Pacman Jones

The NFL commish does the right thing by staying true to his word. Buying some kids tickets to watch you wrestle doesn't come close to showing that you've learned your lesson. Staying out of trouble with the law, getting some new friends and accepting blame for all the trouble you've caused, will.

Pats vs. Colts Highest Rated Regular NFL Game In 20 Years

The game itself wasn't great, but it was still pretty good. And considering how the Pats overcame a "suspect" home crowd, bad officiating and 10-point deficit with only 8 minutes left in the game, I think it's safe to say that if Bill Belichick wants it (and I think he does), his team will go undefeated this season.

Knicks End 5-Year Home Opener Losing Streak

Ever since he became a Knick I've always liked Jamal Crawford and tonight proved to be another reason why. If the Knicks have any chance of finishing with a winning record this year, somebody needs to step up and make sure they win the gimme's on their schedule. A Minnesota Timberwolves team without Kevin Garnett, at home, is a definite gimme and tonight Crawford made the shots (including the damn free throws) in the 4th quarter to lead his team to victory.

Redskins - 23, Jets - 20 (OT)

The Jets may've long packed it in, but they played well enough to the point that they still should've won this game. Either way, it's time to start thinking about next year's NFL draft.

Is It Safe To Say Charlie Weis Is Overrated Now?

Charlie Weis, championed by the mostly white, male sports media as the next great coming, brings utter shame to the once prestigious Notre Dame football program:

South Bend, IN (Sports Network) - Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada and Reggie Campbell hooked up for a 25-yard touchdown pass and two-point conversion in the third overtime, as the Navy Midshipmen snapped an NCAA-record 43-game losing streak to Notre Dame by beating the Fighting Irish, 46-44.

The Irish set a school record with their fifth straight home loss. Roger Staubach was playing quarterback for Navy the last time the Midshipmen won in South Bend, a 35-14 triumph back in 1963.

Garnett, Allen & Pierce Will Keep Me Tuned

This new NBA season should be really interesting for a lot of reasons, but mostly because of the Celtics newest addition of the Big Three: Paul Pierce, Ray Allen & Kevin Garnett. Maybe they do need a better point and maybe they will need some more depth to their bench as the season goes forward, but you'd have to be an idiot not to think that as long as these guys stay injury-free, you can count on them to at least be in the Eastern Conference finals. At least, because they're that good.

Martina Hingis A Cocaine User?

Damn, to think back in the days I used to have a small crush on homegirl, loved her brash mouth too as when she was on top, she was never afraid to speak her mind. Then again, being a smart ass did garner her share of critics who are probably having the last laugh now after this news.
