Wishing all my friends here at BangtheBook and Spooky Express a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Thank you for all your support and great posts all year long.
-- NFL needs to put back in a rule where every team dresses three QBs every game; even if the #3 QB only plays in an emergency. Dallas is going to have two QBs dressed Sunday if Romo can't play, and Jon Kitna has been a high school teacher the last two years-- he is 41.
-- Dallas brought in five QB suspects to be Kyle Orton's backup against the Eagles Sunday night: Carr-Skelton-Thigpen-Hanie-Bartel, but they settled on Kitna because he knows the offense. Guy has been a teacher for two years and is one injury away from being the QB in a play-in game for the playoffs. Wow.
-- New York Post reports that Josh Brown is the first kicker in Giants history with three field goals of 40+ yards in the same game.
-- Only once since 2000 have two #1 seeds met in the Super Bowl. That was Colts-Saints in 2009.
-- It'll be a shame if the Cardinals don't make the playoffs; they deserve to be in, but they'll need to Bucs to win at New Orleans Sunday, and the Saints are 7-0 at home, so thats probably not happening.
-- Cincinnati Bengals are third team to score 40+ points in four straight home games in same season; '52 Lions, '00 Rams are other two.
-- Expect a ridiculous amount of cash to be thrown at Japanese free agent pitcher Masahiro Tanaka, who is coming here next year. Bronx/Dodgers are expected to try and get him; Cubs and Boston could be involved, too. Red flag: He has 53 complete games, which means that arm has thrown a lot of pitches. Not sure he'll be worth the $20M posting fee, plus salary.
Some Christmas wishes......................
-- Jerry Jones-- A real GM so his football team can compete with the other 31 NFL teams on an even plane. Jones is an amateur as a GM; it shows.
-- Arkansas State football-- A coach who will stay more than one season in Jonesboro. Next year will be their fifth coach in five years.
-- Arizona Cardinals-- A playoff spot they deserve.
-- DirecTV viewers-- Adding the Pac-12 Network; its not a lot to ask.
-- To everyone that has supported the Spooky Express-- A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
