Sports Suck Right Now

::Rant Alert::

Well I’m just going to say it, the sports world sucks for me right now.  Notre Dame was unbearable to watch all fall.  Now they have no coach and despite all of those rumors about big names like Stoops and Meyer, it is not going to happen.  I want Brian Kelly to get the job but he is far from a home run.  Ugh…

The Patriots are average because of the total lack of a pass-rush and strange play calls.  Seriously, how can an NFL defense get such little pressure on a QB?  It is sad to watch.  Belichick prides himself on being prepared and having his teams prepared.  How could the go into this season with such a problem on defense?  Sadly it won’t get fixed until the offseason.  I see this team going 10-6, winning the division, winning wild card weekend and then getting stomp in the divisional round.  Ugh…

Finally, the Red Sox.  They called a press conference on Friday for what they deemed “a major announcement.”  That announcement…the signing of career utility infielder, journey man Marco Scutaro.   Some people are applauding the move saying he is a great defender and can hit pretty well.  I see it as another low-money, low-reward signing that has become the signature of the Theo Epstein Era.  Theo is great at drafting and developing players, as well as making trades, he isn’t great at free agent signing.  Oh and I fully expect Jason Bay to go to Seattle and then the Sox will overpay for Holliday.  Ugh…

So the three teams that I follow the closest are all pissing me off.  Ugh…

On a positive note, at least the Celtics are getting it going.

    Ever since 2007 when we lost the game that shouldn’t be spoken of by name, the Patriots have a major fixation on throwing the deep ball. It cost us that game back in the 2007 season and now its costing us games. Its exactly the way we use to play the Colts. Just be patient with them and Peyton (and let’s not forget he was sued for sexual assault while he was at Tennessee) eventually is going to want to connect on the long ball. How many shots do we need to take 40-50 yards down field? Third and Eleven with 4 minutes to go in the game we throw a 60 yard hail mary to Wes Welker who had three defenders in his area. Instead of throwing a ball underneath to a faulk or a welker, or dare I say our non existent tight ends (one in which we drafted in the first round). You know speaking of which, I wouldn’t have even known Watson played in the game if it was not for his false start. But again, that’s the OC’s job to get another receiver besides Welker or Moss involved in the game. Back to drafting Watson in the first round – who drafts a TE in the first f****** round anyways? The guy has only made one good freaking play since being here and it was Brady’s last red zone pick before yesterday. God I hope our last 4 years of drafts were all pioli’s doing and the 2009 draft was a sign of what BB can do with out pioli.

    One name in the off season – Julius Peppers.

    Great point, the last few drafts have not been very exciting for the Pats. They’ve had some 1st round picky play well (Merriweather and Mayo), but they are getting jack from their 2nd-7th round picks. That is where they used to strike gold and now they are bench players who get released two years later.

    The defense is pathetic right now and miserable to watch. Seriously, Henne can look good against them?!?!

    To be honest though – their defense didn’t lose the game yesterday for them. Sadly it was the offense inability to resist throwing the deep ball. You aren’t going to win much when your last two drives of the game eat up a total of around 2.5 minutes and you go three an out on each one. Ohh, and you are winning by two.

    Hey, so what’s the deal with these weird shapes and colors next to our names?!?! How did I get stuck with some line green tribal symbol?!?!
