Sports Awards for November 3rd - November 10th

November 11, 2013 at 3:06 PMJonathan Burke

Well, its been I while but I am going to blog consistently now with an alert system. Never mind that though lets get to the awards. Two teams earn the Golden Helmet and they are the Indiana Pacers in the NBA and the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL. Pacers showing early strength beating Detroit with ease and winning against the Bulls with the return of Derrick Rose. I'm looking forward to see if they can carry some momentom. The Chiefs are number one in the league with a 9-0 record heading into there bye. However a lot of people are saying that the Chiefs got lucky with the scheduling because almost every team they have faced has a losing record. I will say the true test of their strength is going to be against the Broncos next Sunday night. Now the Pink Toilet Paper. They were a lot of bad moments this week from the Chalmers $15K fine to the Bears leaving Jay Cutler out there just to get injured again to the consistent key player injuries in the NFL but I'm going to give it to the Miami Dolphins. The Richie Incognito bulling  Jonathan Martin situation is a bit ridicolus. This all got started because Martian said he was being verbal abused by Incognito and got him suspended from play. All I have to say about the situation is that this got out of hand quickly and brought a lot of negative attention to a team in the playoff hunt. Now the Bronze Binoculars. I would watch the NASCAR Championship battles in the Nationwide and Sprint Cup, the Lions in the NFL because their main divisional rivals have key injuries, and the Dallas Cowboys trying to make a comeback to get into a good seed for the playoffs.

Sports Awards for July 30- August 4

August 5, 2013 at 8:00 PMJonathan Burke

Let's award the best, worst, or funniest plays,  games, teams, or players. First, I'll explain the awards. The first one is the Golden Helmet awarded to the best play, player, team or whatever over the week. The second one the Pink Toilet Paper is awarded to the worst play, player, team this week. Last is the Bronze Binoculars which goes to the person or team to watch for this week and now lets get started. If your a baseball fan than you know than the Golden Helm as to be given to the Atlanta Braves. They have a 13 game win streak, the best record in the MLB, and the only team in the National East Division to have a winning record. They are definitely playoff favorites. Now the Pink TP and if you saw the Hall of Fame game for the NFL you know who its going to, the Dolphins. I'm only gonna give it to them for the first half for these reasons. Fumble it first play of the game, quarterback goes 1 out of 5, and throwing an interception to a rookie linebacker who returns it for 7 pts. All  this gave 17 pts to the Cowboys. Now in the second half they turn a bad game into 20 pts which isn't bad. Actually, I'm gonna give another Gold Helm to new head coach Joe Philbin because whatever he changed during halftime worked. Finally the Bronze Binoculars to Baltimore for the MLB. They are the closest team to challenge for the Wild Card spot and they are not the only ones within striking distance of a American League Wild Card. That's it for this week next awards 8/12/13.

NFL Predictions for 2013-2014 Season

August 2, 2013 at 8:06 PMJonathan Burke

For our first sports blog we shall predict the NFL Season and I have to say if you disagree than say in the comments your prediction. First we will start with the AFC East and as usual The Patroits will win with a 12-4 Record despite many key players out of the picture but the Bills I think could be a threat and will get a 10-6 record while the Jets and Dolphins will both get 6-10 or worse. The AFC North is going to be dominated by the Ravens who will get 14-2. The Steelers overcome last years problems and get 9-7 edging them into a wildcard spot but the Bengles with their good running game will get a 8-8 record but not a playoff spot. The Browns will finish 5-11 and disappointed. The AFC South has of coursed changed since Payton Manning left the Colts in 2012 and last year was dominated by the Texans who will get 13-3 this year. The Jaguars to be honest will be lucky to get into the wildcard but I'm at least expecting an 8-8 out of them. The Titans most likley will go 8-8 and the Colts will be lucky even to go 6-10. AFC West will be taken by the Broncos with a 11-5 record Raiders will go 9-7 but will be kicked out of the playoffs due to the tiebreaker rule with the Steelers. The Chiefs and the Chargers will both go 8-8 fighting hard to try and get a playoff spot. Now the NFC East and I gotta say this could be the most intense division in the NFL. The Giants with a bit of luck get a 10-6  and the Redskins and Cowboys tie with 8-8. The Eagles unfortunately will go 7-9 but show drastic improvement from 2012. NFL North unfortunately will be won by the Packers with a 11-5 Record. The Vikings will be a surprise getting 9-7 and the Lions will go 7-9. The Bears will go 8-8 but to be honest with the new coach and all the pressure it might be a hard season for my favorite team. The NFC south is always intense but the Falcons will do a miracle 15-1 season and the Saints and Panthers will 9-7 but both will miss wildcard spots. The Bucs will go 2-14 with no improvement from last year. The final division the NFC west is tight but the 49ers shall stay on top with a 14-2 while real shock will be the Rams going 10-6 and getting in the playoffs. The Seahawks will go 8-8 and the Cardinals 7-9.
