NFL, Beantown Meltdown & No Dickey


crystal-ballBEANTOWN:  Spent the weekend in Boston.  Colder than the south side of a witch’s tit.  Why anyone lives there by choice is beyond me.  To deal with the frigidity of New England, I wore my Bronx Science sweatshirt.  Didn’t go there, but my mother taught there back when.  No one said nothin’ about it.

Damn straight.  They’re still shell-shocked from what went down last year.  The whole Bobby V fiasco was really one for the ages.  And when the new GM decided to just blow the team the F up?  Priceless.

We’re a long ways away from the hey day of Terry Francona and Theo Epstien.  That’s a fact.  But I didn’t have to say anything.  You could see it in their eyes.  They know it.  They’re runnin’ scared up there in New England.

And now they have no Bruins to keep them warm in the winter and forget their troubles.  The NHL is too busy committing hari-kiri.  Oh well.

And the Celtics?  Man, they’re old.

How old are the Celtics, you ask?  The Celtics are so old they fart dust.

All that really leaves then is the Patsies.  Pretty Boy Brady’s crew, led by that piece of human filth, Bill Belichick.

They’re still pretty good of course.  But they’re legacy is blemished.  That’s what happens when you don’t win a Super Bowl after you stop cheating.  And I got news for y’all.

They ain’t winning it this year either.

Boston fired McCauley Culkin

Did you see that game last night?  They were absolutely embarrassed in every aspect of the game during the first half and the opening of the second half.  I don’t know what was more shameful, their inability to consistently stop the retrograde offense trotted out by Bo Schembechler protogé and notorious dick (Angry Ward now confirms) Jim Harbaugh, or the way San Fran’s defense tossed them around the field for most of the game.

The league’s best offense met the league’s best defense, and the D got the best of it in no uncertain terms.  And at the same time, sh!tty New England D got run roughshod over by the shitty SF offense.

Simply put, New England was exposed.

Yes, they turned it around in the second half and staged a remarkable comeback.  But it fell short.  In the end, they were a day late and a dollar short.

So sorry Boston, this just really isn’t gonna be your year.  The halcyon days are over for the foreseeable future.

Enjoy the snow.

Elsewhere in the NFL, it’s becoming pretty clear that no one really wants to win the AFC North.  As of now, my money’s on Cincinnati, believe it or not.

Going bye-bye is what Dickey always does

Going bye-bye is what Dickey does.

Seattle’s on quite a little run, but I’m of the persuasion that beating up on bad teams is a good start, but not enough in and of itself.  I’d still be surprised if they earn a Wild Card and win a game in the post-season.  We’ll see how they fare against SF next week.

But as far as the G-Men go? My gut tells me they’ll turn it around, make the post-season, and rack up at least one victory.  Time will tell.

And a closing word to all the Mets fans at MTM: Your team ain’t worth Dickey.

West Coast Craig tells all tomorrow.

    Don’t expect me to feel sorry for anyone in Boston. You should walk in some Buffalo moccasins. We haven’t won since… EVER.

    • Meet The Matts

      We feel your pain, buffalobilly84. The Bisons aren’t even Mets farmers any longer. Sniff, sniff.

    Adrian Peterson is a monster. I don’t want to hear any more Peyton Manning MVP talk. Granted, that was a good win for Denver on the road yesterday in Baltimore, but Peterson is just running through, around, over defenses that know he’s going to run. The Vikes have no passing game whatsoever. Peterson, coming off a shredded knee, is the best player in football.

    • Cam_James

      no he isn’t. Greg Zuerlein is.

      Hands down, no second thoughts about it, All Day for MVP. A similarity between AP and Dickerson is the inept QB’s both had/have enabling a steady diet of runs–Dieter Brock and Christian Ponder.

    • Meet The Matts

      Peyton Manning should be the MVP.

  • Cookies Corner

    I can’t believe the Mets traded their fantastic Dickey away.

    • AngryWard

      This is what the Mets do. They finally get a player that the fans like and go out of their way to see and they trade him.

  • Cam_James

    G-Men will wet the bed and miss the playoffs.

    • AngryWard

      Sadly, I’m inclined to agree.

      • Meet The Matts

        Last Christmas Eve, the Giants and Jets were facing extinction, ridicule and and finger wags. Rex Ryan proclaimed that the Giants were the 2nd best team in New York (actually NJ)…. The Jints than went on to win the Super Bowl. Will that happen again, not with yesterday’s secondary. But the Prince and Kenny Phillips will be back. That helps one dream…

  • Sam’s-A-Fan

    Seems to me that if we weren’t going to hold on to our Dickey, we should have traded David E5 Wright too. Well at least we’re getting rid of Thole in the bargain.

    • Meet The Matts

      The Mets organisation (Canadian spelling for R.A.) has now officially become the San Diego Padres. We’d call them the A’s, except the A’s win a good portion of the time. The difference is, however, that the Mets are a big-market team with their own network, playing the role of a small market team with no cable deal. The only proven commodities in this trade are Dickey, Thole and Buck. And unfortunately, the Buck stops here. Merry Christmyass, Fred.

      • Sam’s-A-Fan

        I don’t think that Thole has proven that much to date other than he calls a respectable game (see 6/1/12) but is unwatchable at the plate.

  • The Public Professor

    It’s high time this site had a comments section dedicated to talking about Dickey. Long overdue.

    • vinny from brooklyn

      is this a good trade? the catcher had knee surgery. metsblog is driving me nuts.
