Where is the remote?

It's close to February, and guess what time it is?  Time for the highly watched NFL Pro Bowl game (said in my most sarcastic voice).  I don't think I have ever watched a full half of this game.  I don't have a problem with anyone being honored for their spectacular season.  However, having a meaningless game after the season is over is like someone asking you to come into work on Saturday for the fun of it.

Unlike the NFL, Major League Baseball (MLB) and the National Basketball Association (NBA) have events to celebrate their All-Stars.  The MLB has the annual Home Run Derby and a All-Star game that decides who gets home field advantage between the American and National league in the World Series.  The NBA has Sophomore versus Rookie game, three point contest and a dunk contest.  What does the NFL give us?  A meaningless game with a bunch of players who did not even make it to the Super Bowl.  That would be like having a NBA All-Star game last year without Dwayne Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dirk Nowitzki.

In the words of the Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson, "NFL, you're better than that".

Who You Rolling With?

This weekend we have the NFL Conference Championship games to determine who will be going to the Super Bowl.  The Baltimore Ravens will play the New England Patriots for the AFC Championship game and THE NEW YORK FOOTBALL GIANTS will play the
San Francisco 49ers for the NFC Championship game.  If you read my previous posting, you know who I'm going with to win the Super Bowl and my reasons.  Leave a comment and let me know who you think will win the Super Bowl, and why?

Who Cut the Cheese?

Green Bay Packers, home of the Cheese Heads.  The team with the best record in the NFL.  The favorite to repeat as Super Bowl champs.  Give me a break!  I'm not buying this years Green Bay Packers.  First, any team that lets the Kansas City Chiefs prevent them from having a perfect season doesn't deserve to win a title this year, no offense toward my home team.  Green Bay's defense couldn't stop my nose from running.  Their best defensive player is Aaron Rodgers!

But I have a confession, don't tell Romeo Crennel, I have been having an affair for a couple years now.  With whom you ask? The NY FOOTBALL GIANTS.  Yes, it feels free to finally get that out of my system.  The NY FOOTBALL GIANTS will be this years Super Bowl Champions.   Since I've finally confessed my love for the NY Football Giants, I will now refer to them as US, WE, and OUR!

I'm going to give you the reasons why our team will beat the Packers and anyone else that steps up.  We are the most balanced team in the NFL.  Nobody can stop our defensive line with my guys Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck, and Jason Pierre-Paul.  We have arguably a top 5 quarterback with Lil Peyton running the show.  Green Bay cannot stop Ahmad Bradshaw, aka Lightning, and Brandon Jacobs, aka Thunder.  Don't let me get on our receiving core that is arguably the best in the game with Hakeem Nicks, Mario Manningham, and Victor Cruz, aka Mr. Salsa, as my brother would call him.  That is just too much man power for a team that is last in defense. 

Just remember four years ago the Giants played the Green Bay Packers in the playoffs, it resulted in Lil Peyton leading his team over the undefeated New England Patriots to become Super Bowl Champs.  You might say that Green Packers already beat my NY Football Giants once this year 38-35, but just remember that the year they won the Super Bowl, New England also beat them in the regular season.  Take a guess what the score was.  That's right 38-35.  You heard it hear first.  Don't be surprise if this weekend feels like a rerun.

Let me know who you rolling with this weekend.

RESPECT DA GAME, where agreeing with the norm is unacceptable!

Tebow: Born to win!

Every week we watch Tim Tebow, you ask yourself, how does he keep winning.  Does he work harder than everyone, does he want to win more than everyone, or maybe he just more favored by God than everyone else.  Lol.    A man is defined by what he has done in the past.  Why you think jobs ask for application, and loan offices ask for credit reports.  They want to analyze you and predict what will be your future behavior.  That is why you cannot fault the Denver Broncos for picking Tim Tebow.   His background has shown to be a born winner.  People fail to realize that he led his high school team to a 4A State Title in high school, led the University of Florida to 2 National Championships in 4 years.  Became the first sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy Award.  Would you hire a sells manager that led two companies to be the best in their particular industry?  If you did hire that person, what would you expect from that individual.  That is exactly what the whole world should expect from Tebow.  He has never shown us in the past that he was not able to lead a team to victory, so why is America shocked now.  It's not like he took his talents to South Beach to play with another star and choked in the Finals again.  Sorry wrong sport.  So lets raise the bar for Tebow.  I feel that he expects excellence from everything he does in life, as we should for ourselves, so why shouldn't we expect those same things from him after analyzing his PAST WORK HISTORY.

Welcome to RESPECT DA GAME.  I would like to thank you for visiting RESPECT DA GAME.  This is a blog that will debate different topics going on in the sports world today.  I believe that we are all created different, so we should have different ideas to share about various topics.

The title of the blog was created 11 years ago while dating my wonderful wife.  While watching my favorite team, the Los Angeles Lakers, she called during the first quarter of the game to talk and I told her in the most RESPECTFUL way," baby, you got to RESPECT DA GAME".  This became a huge joke among my family members, but caught on right away.  Being the understanding wife I now have, she took the time out to call me during halftime and commercials during the Laker game after that comment.  Take notes ladies, that is how you become WIFEY.

I will be blogging about random topics that are being discussed around the sports world and giving my random opinion.  I plan to engage my audience with thought provoking topics that encourage aggressive sports debates.

I look forward to you following my blog and giving your various opinions.  Now let's get it started.
