Percy Harvin = Pro Bowl Player

Percy Harvin ran a 4.3 40 at the combine this week.

If Harvin raced the Flash, it'd be a tie. If Harvin raced around the world, time would move backwards.

Just kidding but I'm going to keep touting Harvin until people start listening.

Harvin is going to be a big-time wide receiver in the NFL for years to come. He's that talented and his ability combined with that speed is a stunning combination.

I can hear my boy Prisco now: Mike, you idiot, he can't run routes.

Trust me: some coach in the NFL will teach him to run routes.

Harvin will be a dangerous offensive weapon and if somehow he ends up on a good team, he'll be frighteningly good.

Good Riddance, Brett

You were a great quarterback, a Hall of Famer, one of the best ever.

Overall, that's how you'll be remembered and should be remembered.

But in the last few years nothing said diva like the words "Brett Favre."

You changed from a warrior to a spoiled brat.

Your legacy was tarnished by your retirement/unretirement, and your isolation from teammates as well as your sloppy play, play that led to criticism from Jets teammates including running back Thomas Jones.

Not irrevocably damaged, but tarnished, nonetheless.

You probably should've retired three years ago.

So goodbye, Brett.

And please: stay retired this time.

Disgusting Party at Nebraska?

The following appeared recently in Facebook and it's certain to generate quite a bit of outrage. A portion of the posting is below and the expletives have been deleted by me:



The post goes on to describe the party:




This post isn't about the normally profane garbage that floats about in cyberspace. This is different and worse.

The party is being thrown for one current and one former Nebraska Cornhusker football player who've been accused of some extremely serious crimes.

The "Andy's Free" refers to former Nebraska offensive lineman Andy Christensen who was accused in March of fondling a woman in a bar. He was eventually acquitted of those charges by a jury. However, according to various media reports, Christensen pled guilty to resisting arrest and criminal mischief in connection with the case.

"After speaking with Andy Christensen and his family, as well as coach Osborne, our administration and the Unity Council," Nebraska coach Bo Pelini wrote in a statement in September of 2008, "we have made the decision to reinstate Andy to our football team. That being said, I have clearly explained to Andy and his family that going forward he will zero tolerance policy regarding alcohol and any off-field incidents."

The "Hunter's F-----" portion refers to Hunter Teafatiller, the former Nebraska tight end who was arrested twice on suspicion of drunk driving within a three-month period in 2007, according to media reports.

Crude? Yes. Profane? Yes.

But this is the biggest problem. Current Nebraska players are scheduled to attend the party (as well as a former Nebraska student who stripped for Playboy). They've acknowledged so on the Facebook page.

This means ostensibly the school and team are approving a party being thrown for a criminal who resisted arrest and an alleged habitual drunk driver.

If Nebraska knows about this party and does nothing about it, then Nebraska should catch major hell. They shouldn't allow their athletes to attend this kind of party with that kind of them.

Actually, if this party goes forward and athletes attend, someone at Nebraska should get fired.

Santonio Holmes

He's been known, off the field, as not a good guy. But this game might change his image.

What's certain is the game changed his life. He'll never have to buy a beer in Pittsburgh again.

And he'll always be seen as the player who won the Steelers' sixth Super Bowl.

Top 10?

Top five?

Cardinals Losing their Nerve

They're not challenging the Steelers. They're barely passing the ball. They're not in that usual Arizona attack mode.

I think the Steelers are intimidating them.

Super Bowl Blogasm: Game NOT Over

Because the Cardinals are being more aggressive on defense and offense.

Throw the ball a lot and run hard to the ball on defense. The Cardinals are finally doing that.

So, game not over.

Not yet.
