The Future is Now, Dak Prescott

FREEHOLD, NJ – While Angry Ward enjoys some R&R, management reached out to me to bring some civility back to this forum. The word is that ratings here are tanking at the same rate as the NFL’s! That’s just horrible! I trust that they sent out an email blast to let readers know that The Grinding Ax would be swinging an Angry One on Wednesday. So without further ado, let’s ramp this mother up with some talk about Dak Prescott, the Cubs Barking by the Dawg Pound, NY Rangers Rolling!

Unlucky 13

The Future of the NFC Least is here. Unfortunately, it does not include MTM favorite Eli Gump and his Little Giants! Sorry folks, but Big Blow is tanking. This week should be interesting as they line up against an angry group of Iggles, who are still licking their beaks after another demoralizing loss to those Cowboys of Dallas. Look for a rebound by Misery Town’s Birds, as Carson Wentz shows-up Ol’ Man Manning. Odell Beckham Jr. will be queefing out his mouth and kicking that net in frustration when Eli let’s loose a few ducks, while under constant pressure from a very good defense. Big Al Sternberg is cursing me out from somewhere! 

Trade bait?

Trade bait?

Dak “Could Be a Trap” Game –  We all know what can happen when you Assume the easy win. Just ask Angry Ward’s Vikings. They dropped a gimme game to the inept Jay Cutler and Da Bears. I think the real Sam Badford has returned. Anyway, Sunday will be a good litmus test for Prescott as he comes off a great finish on Sunday night. The Brownies would love to knock off the hottest team in the NFL. That would go a long way for their suffering fans. Hell, the ASPCA should file charges against this team for decades of abusing the fans in the Dawg Pound.  
No Chance! Ezekiel Elliott will tear it up for his old fans. Let’s face it, the Buckeyes can beat this team!

How ‘Bout Them Rangers! Let’s see how long it takes for them to trade another great young talent (Jimmy Vesey) for some aging defenseman! At 7-3, leading  the NHL East and scoring at a record pace, we just know that management will do something stupid before the trade deadline! Kudos to Henrik Lundqvist on his first clean sheet of the season and number 60 for his career.

And a SIDE NOTE for MLB fans: There will be a game seven, as the Chicago Cubs evened up the World Series with a impressive 9-3 win over the Indians of Cleveland.  With the momentum turned in their favor, I think The Curse of the Goat is over!

Angry Goat

Well, that’s a wrap for now. Management only paid me for 400 words, so chime in all you hostile Giants fans. Stop back tomorrow and find out what’s worse than a Cowboys fan –  when Buddy Diaz (an Eagles fan?) flaps his wings.

About the Author ()

“Grinding Ax” Walter Hynes (GAW) comes from the same Sports Royalty bloodlines as Short Matt… He’s heaving hatchets off the heads of any deserving Sports Personalities… His favorite teams are the NY Rangers, Detroit Tigers, Dallas Cowboys, NY Jets and Manchester United… A suburban husband and father of two, Walter understands what it takes to be a second-guessing, sideline-heckling parent and coach.

    If I knew my spending some time in the MtM Nervous Hospital would have gotten Grinding Ax back, I would have gone off my nut much sooner. Let me speak for our dearly departed Fake Sandy/Big Al by saying, the Cowboys aren’t near as good as you (or others) think. Be it a Zeke suspension, Dez losing his cool for the umpteenth time, Dak playing like a rook, or the whole team messing up the “Romo Situation,” trust me, the NFL East will be a sh!tshow right to the end, as always. No one is running away with it.

    I’m pulling for the Indians tonight. I’ve got a good friend who’s a Cubs fan, but I just can’t bring myself to root for the team who was favored to win it when the season started. Maddon drives me nuts too. If Cleveland loses, however, I’ll be full well ready to get out my Golden State angst and troll them with “3-1” they way LeBron did the Warriors this Halloween.

    • A-Dubya, the ’86 Mets were favored to win it all from the get-go.

      • AngryWard

        Good point. Doesn’t apply at all though.

    • GrindingAx

      Well said. Big All would have added his usual ” How can a guy who grew up in NJ be a Cowboys fan.” He would add that they suck as well as Chris Christie and any other fan. I could not say no to filling in for you..enjoy the sanitarium.

      • And don’t forget your “soccer problem.” But he’d also give you two thumbs up for this 2-run double in the 9th as a pinch-hitter vs Chapman.

        • GrindingAx

          Thanks for reminding me. In Champions League play, Manchester City 3 Barcelona 1.

          • jgclancy

            NYC FC has an MLS playoff game at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. I’m sure everyone will be skipping football for it.

          • GrindingAx

            There is sure to be gridlock throughout the tristate area!

        I miss those Jersey comments from Al.

  • Shocking News From Minny:

    Norv Turner resigned as Vikings’ offensive coordinator

    • GrindingAx

      Let the finger pointing begin!

      • AngryWard

        I’m fine with this.

        • jgclancy

          Blind chimpanzee being hired is a step up I’d say

          • AngryWard

            Y’see, Vikings fans know. Jim and I should take over. We’d be excellent.

          • jgclancy

            I’ll stick to wide receivers coach just to teach them how to turn their hands the right way to make a correct catch. Thumbs and index fingers towards each other damn it! Rotate your shoulder!How hard is it?

          • None of this matters. What matters is that the Rangers will hoist the Cup!

          • jgclancy

            The Texas Rangers hoisting a cup of champagne on New Year’s Eve? Those Rangers? or are you some kinda closet Mighty Morphin Power Rangers fan?
            Go Vikings!

          • GrindingAx

            Put another few million in the slot and they may respond.

  • benwhit

    It is my opinion that Rangers management deserves some serious kudos for this offseason. Retooling and getting younger in the face of salary cap hell was impressive. It’s early, but the pieces look like they’re fitting together nicely.

    • GrindingAx

      You are spot on. Looking at history, however they like to make trades for older veterans mid season and give up young outstanding talent.

      • Different Matt

        Rangers do need some help at the back end. They will make a trade but it won’t be Vesey. Rumours (Canadian spelling) have it that it might be JT Miller who moves out west to Anaheim.

        While recent history shows a series of deadline moves that didn’t pan out for the Rangers, let’s not forget that the Blueshirts probably don’t win in 94 without moving fan-favourite (Canadian spelling) Mike Gartner for Glenn Anderson and young stud Tony Amonte for Matteau at the deadline.

        • GrindingAx

          Gartner for Anderson was a wash. Matteau for Amonte hurt for years.

          • Different Matt

            The Anderson trade couldn’t have been a wash since the Rangers won the Stanley Cup.

            The Amonte trade stopped hurting the second Matteau dispatched of the Devils.

          • GrindingAx

            I get your statement but Amonte would have produced as much or more during that run. It was an Edmonton Oilers reunion ..they were poised to win when Messier arrived. Richter and Leetch along with Mess were complemented by those guys. Argument on either view. My point is they were one and done.

          • Junoir Blaber

            I love this debate but I agree with Diff. The Rangers won it so it was clearly the right move. Anderson was a wash and I loved Gartner. Mathieu was bad in the long term but in the short term, it was brilliant.

          • GrindingAx

            Hindsight is 20-20 . I’m glad they won, obviously. My original comment was responding to benwhit’s remarks on how Rangers management deserved kudos . As a fifty year fan, that’s right, since I was 8, I have watched them trade away future stars.
            Look at the playoff stats that year for Amonte . He had 6 points in 6 games. Gartner 11 points in 18 games.
            Anderson 6 points in 23 games and Matteau 9 points in 23 games. While Matteau’s moment was historic, I think the two traded could have brought more. They certainly did after that year. Amonte was the big loss.

          • Junoir Blaber

            To take it really back, me and my bro Mateo are Ranger fans so when we decided to pick our favorite players, Mateo went for Gartner as his favorite forward because Mateo in soccer is forward so he went for the goalscorer. He chose Leetch as his fav defender because he was lazy and wanted and allstar.

            My players were like me, humble hard working never short you a shift guys. So I went with Kovalev and James Patrick. Imagine how gutted I was when Iron Mike Keenan Chose to use Patrick as the guy to trade in his trademark, new sheriff in town trade. So I settled for Beukeboom.

          • benwhit

            They hadn’t won a cup in 50+ years. They were in full win now mode.

        • benwhit

          I’d hate to see Miller go. That guy makes things happen.
